The Boundless CFC 2.0 is a budget vaporizer that delivers a quality vaping experience. It was built very well, so there is little chance of it malfunctioning or getting cracked. The CFC 2.0 also provides exceptional battery life, and it can deliver several sessions, leaving the vaper fully satisfied.

Also, unlike a lot of budget dry herb vaporizers, the CFC 2.0 has a broader range of temperature selections. Finding the right temperature is easy with this device. Finally, it is an intuitive unit that is easy to clean and maintain. All of these features and upgrades make the CFC 2.0 a remarkable improvement over its predecessor.

Boundless CFC Performance Review

The Boundless CFC 2.0 is an excellent vaporizer for vapers wanting unique flavor and something with not a lot of draw resistance. It is also the perfect vape for novices because it is so simple to use. This vape has a sturdy build. Vapers usually do not like plastic vaporizers, but do not judge this book by its cover.

The construction quality is much better than that of the first version. Do not expect it to break easily. Another thing about this vape is the water pipe adapter. It can be used to increase the temperature without giving the vapor a harsh taste. Finally, it is a budget vape well priced for vapers looking for the right balance between quality and affordability.

Starter Kit Review

The first impression when the device was taken out of the box was overwhelmingly positive. Everything needed to vape, short of the herbs and grinder, was included.

The best things in the package are the wire brush, stirring tool, and the extra screens for the mouthpiece and oven. Also, the starter kit includes the vaporizer, water pipe adapter, USB charging cable, and an easy to read manual.

Internal Build Quality and Design Review

The CFC 2.0 is 5.2 x 1.1 inches, and it has a cylindrical shape that makes it more portable and comfortable to hold than its predecessor. The knurled surface makes it easier to grip. It also has a well made and designed mouthpiece that fits the lips comfortably.

Additionally, the mouthpiece is made from sturdy construction materials, so there is no need to worry about it cracking or overheating. Another positive feature is that the temperature control buttons are easy to press. Overall, it is a very comfortable device to carry, hold, and vape, and the quality of the build is much improved.

If the construction quality is not enough to convince someone to buy this device, the warranty should be. Two separate warranties cover the vaporizer. One protects the warranty for 90 days, and a second one covers the rest of the unit. Make sure to read the guidance manual before operating the device. Misuse of any part of the vaporizer will void the warranty.

Battery Review

The CFC 2.0 runs for half an hour between 390 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit. At higher temperatures, this device can handle ten sessions, which is more than enough for a day’s usage. The battery life is great for a portable vaporizer.

The downside to the battery is that it takes three hours to charge, and the manufacturer does not recommend pass-through charging. However, considering how long the vape can be used before needing to be recharged, the wait time is not a bad trade-off.

The Differences Between the Boundless CFC 1.0 and 2.0

Of the two portable vaporizers, the CFC 2.0 is a significant improvement over the original model for several reasons. For one, the 2.0’s mouthpiece does not crack, and it does not overheat thanks to the special coating covering it. The outer shell is also sturdier, making it less likely that the internal components become damaged.

The major problems with the original were that the body and mouthpiece were prone to wear and tear. With the improvements in the outer design in the 2.0, these issues are less common. Another significant improvement is that there is more room for the oven, resulting in better quality vapor and flavor. Finally, the OLED screen is easier to discern, and it displays more information. If faced with a choice between the newer and older models, go for the upgrade.

How to Use the Boundless CFC Vaporizer

The vaporizer Boundless is one of the easiest mods on the market to use. Learning to follow these steps takes no longer than a few minutes. First, remove the mouthpiece to reveal the chamber. Next, fill it with herbs. The starter kit does not come with a grinder. It will have to be ordered separately. When the heating chamber is loaded, put the mouthpiece back on.

Pressing the firing button five times in succession activates the device. Use the buttons on the vape to control the temperature. Inhale from the mouthpiece when the herbs are ready.

What is the Best Temperature for the Boundless CFC?

Between 390 and 400 F are the best temperatures for this mod. Not only is this range good for the battery, but it is also best for optimal flavor. Anything higher and the vapor starts to get too hot. Lower temperatures do not bring out the flavor of the herbs.

For warmer vapor, use the water pipe adapter. It allows the user to take the heat up several degrees while maintaining the quality of the flavor and vapor.

How to Clean the Boundless CFC

Maintenance is easy. The only parts of these portable vaporizers that need to be cleaned regularly are the mouthpiece, oven, and chamber screens. Use the cleaning brush for routine cleaning. The mixing tool can even be used for scraping away carbon and other materials stuck in the oven. Occasionally it will be necessary to do a deep cleaning.

An alcohol solution is suitable for this purpose. Let the pieces mentioned here soak in the solution for a few hours. Clean them with a rag and the brush afterward. Warm water will do in a pinch, but alcohol cleaning solutions work best.

Competing Vaporizers

Boundless CFC vs CFX

These two mods from Boundless are both excellent, but there are several key differences. One dissimilarity is in heat-up time. The CFX heats 10 seconds faster than the CFC. It also works with dry herbs and concentrates.

The CFC battery is also slightly better. It fully charges in 30 minutes, and it can last 15 five minute sessions. The CFC’s main advantage, though, is that it is pocket-friendly and portable. The CFX is boxy and too cumbersome for pockets.

Boundless CFC vs Pax 2

The Pax 2 has a few features that make it slightly better than the CFC. For one, the battery life is better. The Pax 2 offers 90 minutes of full vaping time for three full loads and 75 draws. Each session lasts around ten minutes.

Pax 2 Vaporizer

Another difference is that the Pax 2 uses smart technology to enhance the vaping experience. A lip sensor and an accelerometer let the device know when the vaper is or is not using it. This feature saves battery life and conserves the herbs. There is also a three-minute auto-shutoff.

Boundless CFC vs Flowermate

The CFC is better in some areas than the Flowermate, in others not so much. The Flowermate is powered by two 18650s that deliver 2.5 hours of vaporizations. There are not many vaporizers that do better than that. But, the Flowermate only has three temperature settings.

Those temperature selections are ideal, but someone using the CFC has a much larger range of temperature selections from which to choose. With the CFC, it is much easier to find the perfect temperature because the user can choose anything between 140 – 446 F.

Boundless CFC vs Mighty

Like the Flowermate, the Mighty from Storz and Bickel is quite powerful. It is capable of providing 120 minutes of vaping time if it is fully charged. However, this Mighty is not very portable and is undoubtedly not pocket friendly.

Mighty Vaporizer

The CFC from Boundless is much easier to transport. Also, it is much more comfortable to hold. The Mighty’s body looks like a grill for an airconditioning unit. The feeling on the hands is not the best in the world.

Final Thoughts about the Boundless CFC Vaporizer Review

The Boundless CFC 2.0 dry herb vaporizer is perfect for anyone who wants a high-quality budget vaporizer. It works almost as well as the higher-end vaporizers without the exorbitant price tag. The flavor is excellent, and it can produce some big clouds. Additionally, it is portable and easy to carry around.

Vapers who want something that is fast to use and can be carried around in a pocket or purse will be more than satisfied. Some are not going to like the fact it is made of plastic. But, anyone who can get over his or her prejudice against plastic mods will be pleasantly surprised.

I love the written word, and in my career as a journalist, I strive to provide the facts about everything I write about. There are too many false and alarmist stories out there about life and vaping mainly. My mission is to make e-cigarettes less scary to people with informative articles and extensive research on not only the possible evils of cigarettes and Big Tobacco, but the objective side of e-cigs.
