The Hydrology 9NX Vaporizer is the latest release from Cloudious9, a durable and meticulously crafted water filtration vaporizer capable of doing both dabs and flower. The new 9NX seeks to elevate on the predecessor by not only adding the ability to dab, but improving the function and performance of the original Hydrology 9 Vaporizer by adding convection heating to the herb chamber. The result is smooth and tasty vapor.
Durable as the original, the Hydrology 9NX uses space grade anodized aluminum for the alloy body and a borosilicate Glass mouthpiece. The herb chamber is comprised of ceramic while the Concentrate Atomizer comes with both a Quartz Glass and Ceramic bucket.
The Hydrology 9NX functions via both conduction and convection with the herb chamber utilizing patent pending dual heating technology, baking your flower from contact with the ceramic heating element and heat reflecting from the top of the chamber cover while hot air is drawn up through the herbs as you draw. This efficient method makes stirring your herbs mid sessions obsolete.
The concentrate buckets function via thermal heating conduction which heat evenly and efficiently to ensure no cold spots and consistent dabs whether packing for one hit or a few.
The vapor is drawn through the silicone vapor path and purified through water before inhaled from the borosilicate glass mouthpiece.
This is a fun one and the more the merrier. Given the process to setting up the Hydrology 9NX and the swanky lights, this is a more social at home vaporizer. While you can take it on the go like the Puffco Peak, the water aspect and size and weight make it more suited for being stationary and enjoying in settings where a desktop vaporizer is more appropriate. The smaller herb chamber and likeliness to a standard water part do make the Hydrology 9NX a good one for micro dosing despite its size.

Best of Both Worlds
The grass is always greener on the other side, so why not have both sides ? The most revolutionary aspect about the new Hydrology 9NX Vaporizer is it’s ability to both dab and vape flower well.
Alot of herb vaporizers come with concentrate & liquid pads and alot of concentrate vaporizers have adaptation chambers to vape herb. These however are not ideal and it’s apparent that an herb vape is no good for concentrates and vice versa. Cloudious9 9 went the extra mile to make this a vaporizer that is great for both and has custom settings to ensure optimization of both your herbs and dabs.
The Hydrology 9NX Vaporizer pulls your vapor though an added level of purity via water filtration. This is an added benefit for smoother more voluminous vapor and one of the reasons the original Hydrology 9 was such a big hit.
With the higher temperatures for the concentrate settings , the water is all but essential. For the herb it gives you the user the ability to pull on this like your favorite water pipe. The Hydrology 9NX is one of the best vaporizers to emulate smoking and one to check out if you are making the switch from combustion.
Using the Hydrology 9NX Vaporizer
Upon receipt of the Hydrology 9NX , we recommend reading the instructions and getting accustomed with the unit. there are alot of intuitive vaporizers out there and this is not one of them.
Step 1.) Fill the 9NX with no more than 25% Water
Step 2.) Load your Concentrate or Herb Chamber
Step 3.) Insert into unit and press the Power button 3 times
Step 4.) Select your temperature with the twist dial on the bottom
Step 5.) Inhale when the light goes green
Each session will last 120 seconds (45 seconds for concentrates) and slow and long pulls are recommended for optimal vapor production.
The Hydrology 9NX Vaporizer has custom heat settings for the herb and concentrate inserts.
Hydrology 9NX Insert Concentrate Atomizer Flower Chamber Blue 554 °F 356°F Green 590°F 383°F Yellow 626°F 401°F Purple 662°F 419°F Red 716°F 437°F White 770 °F 455°F
The Hydrology 9NX will heat up to the highest herb setting of 455°F in one minute. The highest concentrate setting takes 28 seconds to reach.
On a full pack you will get around 6 hits out of the herb chamber. The concentrate chambers can fit a very large amount as can most e-rigs, but it is recommended to only input what you can vape per 45 second sessions to avoid splashing and gunk up on the unit.
The vapor quality on the 9NX is quite nice. This is top shelf vapor you would expect from a $300 device. While the water does take away a bit from the flavor you would otherwise get in a standard dry herb vaporizer, it adds a level of smooth. For concentrates the 9NX is also on par with the mid level e-rigs like the Carta V2.
The Herb Chamber – will fit roughly .2 grams of herb and give a good 6 draws. The heat reflection mechanism of the herb chamber coupled with the long cylindrical shape of the unit and dual conduction/convection heating, vape the herb evenly and there is no need to stir.
The Concentrate Chamber – comes with two bucket inserts, one quartz glass and one ceramic. The quartz glass bucket will provide better flavor at the lower temperatures while the ceramic is ideal for taking down large cloudy dabs in the higher temperature ranges. While the concentrate chamber can accommodate 1 gram of concentrates easily, it is best to only input what you will consume in 45 seconds. Cleaning the concentrate atomizer out with a q-tip after your session is crucial for longevity.
The Hydrology 9NX uses a 1900 mAh lithium polymer battery (safe cell phone grade) and charges with a magnetic USB.
The Hydrology 9NX has one of the slowest charging times of over 4 hours. Cloudious 9 stated this was by design to not degrade the battery as much over time as fast charging does. This is one of the reasons the Crafty+ battery goes south so fast.
The Hydrology 9NX has a battery life which will last 60 – 120 sessions depending on whether you are using concentrates or dry herb and at what heat setting, with the concentrates at higher temperatures taxing the battery life.
To check the battery life, hold the main power button down for 3 seconds. Red battery is less than 25% battery, Yellow is between 25%-70% percent battery, and Green is 70%-100% battery.
The Hydrology 9NX can be disassembled into many parts, allowing you to get a deep down deep clean. This is essential given the propensity of concentrates to gunk up a vaporizer.
While the 9NX can be disassembled into multiple pieces which are dishwasher safe, putting it all back together can be a tad confusing. We recommend following the user manual for proper cleaning and disassembly.
Life of the Party
All in all the Hydrology 9NX Vaporizer is a super fun and social vaporizer that can handle your dry herb and dab needs. It is definitely more of an at home vaporizer and not something you will be taking on a hike with you, but could be a great addition to a bon fire while camping with some friends.
The manner in which it hits like a bong, is built solid and has aesthetically pleasing qualities like lights make a great party vape. It is also a good coffee table vape for kicking back solo and watching a movie.

I am very happy with my purchase of the Hydrology! I have been enjoying using it these past few weeks. The vapor is smooth and consistent and the battery life lasts several sessions. While it does look a bit gimmicky and it isn’t exactly ‘slip... it in your pocket’ portable I believe it is sadly underrated! The session time is very short and I must reactivate it at least 2 times before I’m done but I like to take my time. Shipping was quick and customer service was great! I recommend the unit and this shop.
