VaporBLUNT Pinnacle Lightning Review: Get High on the Down Low
You’re finally starting to make it in the world. You’ve got a good job, a sweet pad and the best damn tabletop vape money can buy. So why are you still smoking out of that metal sneak-a-toke from high school whenever you’re mobile? Instead, take a hit off the new VaporBLUNT Pinnacle.
What Is It?
A portable convection heater—one of the smallest on the market—for the vaporization and consumption of cannabis.
Who’s it For?
The Pinnacle works as both a mobile all-in-one vaporizer and can also be adapted to act as heat source for vaping through water pipes (the hydro tube is sold separately). It’s perfect for anybody that prefers their herbs steamed instead of roasted.
Its black plastic unibody is about as big around as a roll of quarters and roughly six inches long. Its front face is flattened and contains the power/heat level button. The Pinnacle’s vaporization chamber is located under the removable clear plastic mouthpiece and adapter. It features a removable bullet-shaped filter sleeve, which means you won’t have to cram weed directly into the device. It also makes cleaning a lot easier too.
Click the power button on the unit’s front face—once for low heat (375F), twice for high (390F). While the unit’s heating, remove the mouthpiece cap, pull out the bullet sleeve, and fill it with fine shake. Slide it back in to the heating chamber, click the cap back on and wait for the indicator light to stop flashing (that signifies that it’s ready). Inhale with a long, slow, and steady breath. After your session, hold the power button for two seconds to turn it back off (or it’ll do so automatically after a preset 10-minute duration)
The Best Part
The supremely milky hits you get off of this are sublime—even on the cooler setting. What’s more, the vaporization chamber is situated right next to the mouthpiece, so don’t have to huff and draw heavily in to get a hit. This keeps the temperature levels steady, which results in a fuller, more even vaporization.
Its battery life is a total bummer, lasting less than an hour. That means you’ll either have to bring the included wall charger or some real blunt wraps for when the Li-ion cells die.
This Is Weird.
The Pinnacle has a removable mouthpiece as well and, in keeping with the blunt motif, the company also sells replacement mouthpieces in a variety of flavors just in case you prefer your weed not taste like weed. I received a free lemon tip with my unit. It tasted like Pine-Sol.
- Tip flavors include: Mint, Orange, Raspberry, Lemon, and Bubblegum
- Accessories include: wall charger, stand, wooden shake pick (immediately lost), spare bullet, bullet scrub brush
- The herb needs to be really finely ground, like to shake consistency, for best results
Should You Buy It?
I’d say so. It’s the first portable vaporizer I’ve seen in a while on par with the PAX . The unit casing feels a bit cheap and the flavor tip is way gimmicky but both of those complaints are easily ignored once you fire it up.

Pinnacle Pro is a wax, oil, and herbal vaporizer from VaporBLUNT. It is the next iteration of their classic portable device. The vaporizer comes with five preset temperatures and utilizes a “bullet” system made of titanium, allowing easy pre-fill and prevent cross-contamination. It features removable bowls for different materials.
The Pinnacle Pro is second in the line after the Pinnacle vaporizer from the company, Vaporblunt. The Pinnacle Pro stands out with a few features that will open your eyes to the possibilities that portable vaporizers hold. It boasts five different heat settings and a stunningly small profile. Its small size is even more impressive when you take into consideration that it can vaporize dry herbs and concentrates.
The central aspect of the Pinnacle that Vaporblunt set out to improve is the heating chamber. They seem to have cracked that code because the heat up time for this device is just under 90 seconds. It also features an automatic shut-off function that will ensure you don’t burn up the goods inside of the Pinnacle Pro.
This device comes from a lithium-ion battery that gets a surprising amount of vaporizing power from such a small enclosure. However, this leads to a drawback, as the battery will only last about 50 minutes at a full charge, which is long enough for at least 4-5 sessions. The simple device is easy to use, and it only houses one button for all the functions. Plus, it does not waste any power on an OLED screen, at least.
Bullet for my Vaporizer
The unique part of the Pinnacle Pro is the “bullet-style” bowls that come with it. Each one is removable and comes with a screen on the bottom. It looks very similar to a shell casing for a 9mm pistol, thus the bullet moniker. They tend to get a little hot, but it makes unloading your device a new experience that will end up saving you some time. It even comes with two bullets to make sure you always have some backup.
All good combined
The Pinnacle Pro is an excellent product that will always get you where you want to go. It has a ceramic heating element and a lithium-ion battery. As long as a device can promise that, it has a good chance of being a decent vaporizer. Ease-of-use stands out for the Pinnacle Pro, and cleaning is a breeze thanks to the modular bullet system. Vaporblunt has combined all of that with a nichrome heating element, as well, giving the Pinnacle Pro the specs to stand up to any other device in the portable vaporizing market.
Glass Hydrotube (not included)
Vaporblunt uses a convection engine with the Pinnacle Pro, and that usually results in some pretty flavorful vapor. However, it can also mean that the vapor comes out a little hotter than desirable. To combat this issue, Vaporblunt also sells its own Glass Hydrotube kits together with the vaporizer. Otherwise, you can get the Pinnacle Pro DLX, which is the extended version of this vaporizer together with the water attachment. The Hydrotube is a specially designed attachment for the Pinnacle Pro that will function just like a water pipe, cooling and refreshing your vapor.
