2018 is an important year for Boundless: after presenting the new Tera [reviewed here], here comes the Boundless CFC 2.0, the most economical vaporizer of the American company, which is then the evolution of the well-known CFC [now out of production]; the price remains the same, but the improvement are significant.
Discover with us how it is improved, its characteristics and where to buy it.
BOUNDLESS CFC 2.0 review | Design and portability
As for the dimensions of CFC 2.0, it can be said that it has practically the same dimensions as the model it replaces; the only appreciable difference is in the length, in fact the CFC 2.0 is slightly shorter.
It fits comfortably in one hand and has the classic “grippy” surface to offer a safer handle.
Also in this case the vaporizer is equipped with an oled screen, on which the temperature and the battery status are indicated; there are also 3 buttons, two to control the temperature, and one for switching on and off.
The level of discretion is very good, as the vaguely cylindrical shape allows it to be completely wrapped in the hand; the sensation to the touch is of fair quality, adequate to the economic price range in which this vaporizer is placed.
BOUNDLESS CFC 2.0 review | Vapor quality
The first noteworthy improvement is the new mouthpiece redesigned to have a better flow of vapor, and is also more heat-resistant, therefore more comfortable.
Another nice little thought is the water pipe adapter (bong), which is in the package: use a vaporizer with a water pipe maximizes the pleasure of smoking, as the water cools the vapor, for a “velvety” effect in the throat.
The new ceramic brazier has a capacity increased to 0.5 grams: a value definitely above average, even if compared to more expensive vaporizers. Remember that with this vaporizer you can only vaporize grass: so no concentrates or oils.
The heating time varies from 20 to 30 seconds, a good value for a vaporizer in this price range.
BOUNDLESS CFC 2.0 review | Battery
One of the most radical innovations of the Boundless CFC 2.0 compared to its predecessor, lies in the battery: in fact, the latter is now replaceable, (it uses 18650 batteries, like these) and this is a great advantage.
But be careful: to remove the battery it is necessary to disassemble the vaporizer: therefore it is not possible to change it on the fly. You will always need a USB charger, whether home or car one.
The duration of a fully charged battery is about 60 minutes, but as usual this value is influenced by the temperature it’s used: if we insist on sessions at maximum temperature, the battery life will be obviously affected.
BOUNDLESS CFC 2.0 review | The choice
This vaporizer is a decisive step forward compared to the model it replaces, since it introduces a lot of important innovations: a better flow of steam, replaceable battery, compatibility with “standard” water pipes and a brand new brazier (both bigger and better designed).
The arrival of the Boundless CFC 2.0 messes up the cards in the market of cheap vaporizers: in fact we can say that in its price range is probably the best.
