The ONE from Planet of the Vapes is a portable dry herb vaporizer and the newest iteration in a line of dry herb vapes similar to the Fury and Fury 2. The ONE vaporizer is slightly different from these devices, and I’ll compare the differences between the One and the Fury 2 below.
The POTV One vaporizer is a hybrid convection/conduction dry herb vaporizer that comes with some new upgrades and changes that make this ONE a top contender in the best portable vaporizer under the $100 price range.
This ONE portable vaporizer comes with a full temp spectrum, digital display, fast heat-up times, haptic feedback, and big rips all packed into a small and compact size.
The unit holds about .15g making it really strong for solo use or with a friend, but it doesn’t do all that well in group situations.
The only place to get the ONE is directly from Planet of the Vapes. Luckily they are one of my favorite distributors because they have fast free shipping, excellent customer service, and they include freebies with your purchase.
You can pick one up directly from POTV here for $99. Please read on below to get my full POTV ONE vaporizer review.

ONE Portability, Size, and Build Quality
The POTV One vaporizer is the perfect size to take with you anywhere. It’s compact and feels sturdy thanks to the zinc-based alloy shell. The unit is very portable and fits great in my pocket.
The part I was originally worried about was the glass mouthpiece. However, it does not stick out very far, and it’s extra thick, so I have had no problems at all keeping it in my pocket. The mouthpiece has even survived a handful of ski crashes.
The unit weighs in at 130 grams, which is about what I would expect for this size. It’s not quite as light as the Pax 3, but it’s lighter than other portables I frequently use, like the Crafty+ and the Davinci IQ 2.
The buttons feel nice, and the display looks good with all the relevant information included. My only complaint about the display is it can get a bit hard to see on very sunny days.

Extra “ONE” Accessories
The ONE vaporizer comes with everything you need to vape both dry herbs and concentrates. It comes with an extra screen, extra mouthpieces, cleaning tools… literally everything you need and then some. These are a few items that I recommend to take the POTV One session to the next level.
The first accessory I always recommend with a vaporizer is a grinder. A grinder will help break down your herbs and help the vaporizer to be more efficient.
The ONE doesn’t come with a grinder, but you can pick up the POTV 4 Piece Grinder for $20. It’s not the best, and it’s far from the worst. If you’re looking for something with a little smoother grind and higher quality, I recommend checking out my best herb grinder page for more options.
Water Pipe Adapter (WPA)
The $99 kit comes with one accessory option. You can choose between the mini bubbler, the curved mini bubbler, the water pipe adapter (pictured above), or the bent mouthpiece (picture below).
Bent Mouthpiece (Black)
I personally recommend getting the WPA and picking up some glass for use at home. One of the most enjoyable session experiences with the ONE is ripping a bowl through a bubbler or bong. You will be shocked at just how powerful this little guy is.
The ONE can absolutely MILK this massive beaker-style glass water pipe I got from vapor and works perfectly with your normal-sized water bubblers like the one from Sneaky Pete below.
He’s sold out of the small one, but he still has the big globe for sale, and I highly recommend them both.
Heating, Vapor Path, and Temperature Options
This unit uses a hybrid conduction and convection heating system with an isolated air path. Unlike all of the other variants of this vape, which use the NiChr heating element, the ONE uses a stainless steel heating element, which I prefer overall. However, it does add a couple of seconds to the heat up time, which is around 30 seconds.
The heater in this unit is actually very powerful for the size of the vape. So expect shorter sessions with this vape than most the others in the same price category. In fact, if you have iron lungs, you can basically clear an entire bowl in 1 long draw with the bubbler attachment.
The vapor path is completely isolated from the electronics and starts with a stainless steel heater. It then goes through the titanium chamber and ends up at the glass mouthpiece. A tiny piece of silicone is used to make the seal between the mouthpiece and the bowl.
Overall I am very pleased with the heating system and vapor path, especially considering the price.
The unit is fully adjustable from 320F to 430F. The higher temps get harsher, so I generally stick around 370 or 380 unless I use the bubbler or water pipe adapter. The temp buttons are easy to press and responsive.
Chamber Info and Draw Resistance
The ONE has a small to medium-sized bowl that generally holds about .15 grams of dry herb in the chamber. I have managed to get around .2 in there when it’s smashed in, but I prefer packing .1-.15 for best results. This is usually great for 1 or 2 people, but if you need something for groups near the same price range, you might want to consider the Pax 2 or the Boundless CF.
The draw resistance on the ONE is on the low side when it’s not packed too tightly, which I really enjoy. With the powerful heater and low draw resistance, you can finish bowls quicker than the other units in this price category.
POTV ONE Battery Information
The ONE uses an internal 1600 mAh LiPo battery. It’s NOT replaceable and can be charged via a Micro-USB charging cord. I recommend picking up an external battery charger if you think you’ll be using it for long day adventures. The ONE has decent battery life for the size, but it’s not going to last you all day.
I have been getting around 30 to 45 minutes of battery life per full charge. This is reasonable for the size and price of the device. Since the unit has a powerful heater and fast sessions, it can actually vape a large amount of herb on a single charge despite not having a record-setting battery length.
A fully drained ONE takes about 90 minutes to charge to full. This is about what I expected and nothing to brag or complain about.
How to Use the POTV ONE
First things first, if you are using your POTV One for the first time, I recommend a full charge, some cleaning, and a burn-off, which I’ll explain below.
- Fully charge the POTV ONE.
- Throw a small amount of ISO on a q-tip and clean the chamber, the mouthpiece, and any other pieces in the vapor path.
- The next thing you want to do is a full temp burn off.
- Power on the POTV ONE by pressing the Power Button (top one) three times in a row. The POTV splash screen will load, and it will automatically begin heating to the pre-set temp.
- Increase the temp to the max, and once there, you can begin to take small puffs like you were puffing on a cigar. The goal here is not to inhale but take a small puff and immediately blow it out.
- Repeat this step until there are no smells or taste associated with the heat up process.
Now that we’re done with the initial steps, we can load the chamber with dry herbs or concentrates. With dry herb, you can load directly into the chamber or use the included herb canister. With concentrates, we can throw a little bit on the stainless steel mesh pad that comes with the ONE.
I prefer to load a full chamber with the ONE because although it is a hybrid heating system, it still uses quite a bit of conduction that works best when it is full.
My preferred temp with the straight black mouthpiece is right around 360F unless I’m hitting it with a water piece, then I will crank it up to 410ish.
The POTV ONE herb canister is similar to that of the Storz and Bickel Dosing Capsules. It allows you to pre-pack a canister before heading out, and it also helps keep the chamber cleaner for longer.
Downsides to the canister are that it adds draw resistance and quite a bit more conduction heating, which lowers overall vapor quality. However, a lot of people really like the canister idea because they keep you organized and help you be more precise with each dose, especially if you’re trying to micro-dose.
The canister also drops the already small chamber size, which is not ideal if you’re a heavier user like yours truly.
I’ve also found that finer grinds work best and produce the most clouds. It does gunk up the screen a little faster, but I prefer the taste and vapor production over a more coarse grind.
The ONE can also vape concentrates with the included mesh pad. It’s definitely not the best way to vape your concentrates, but it does work. Just be sure to take a q-tip with some iso to the chamber after a session, preferably while the vape is still a bit warm. Make sure to turn the vape upside down, so you’re not getting any ISO into the chamber.
You can also load some herbs into the chamber and then place the concentrates on top of the herb. Remember, a little bit goes a long way. Don’t overload the chamber with concentrates.
POTV One vs. Fury 2 and More
Previous Fury Units
This is the 3rd iteration of this style unit. The first one was the original Fury, which was also re-branded under a bunch of other names such as the Sutra Mini and the Grindhouse Shift. Then came the Fury 2, which was sold by HealthyRips, and now we have the ONE sold by Planet of the Vapes.
The original Fury put out big clouds and performed well, but it had some drawbacks, so I never recommended it. However, when the Fury 2 came out, they improved a handful of things and turned it into a vape I’m not only comfortable recommending, but I think it’s one of the best vaporizers under $100.
They made the unit turn on with 3 clicks instead of 5, which is a minor change, but it’s a nice improvement in use. They also improved the Silicone so that it didn’t leave a lingering smell/taste.
POTV One vs. FURY 2
Here’s what’s different between the POTV One and the Fury 2 Vaporizer:
- Changed the heating element from Nichrome to stainless steel.
- Added haptic feedback, which is a great addition.
- They have upgraded the mouthpiece screen (stainless steel mesh) for less cleaning and better airflow.
- Changed the mouthpiece from plastic to glass.
- The new mouthpiece also easily swaps from the glass stem to the mini bubbler to the water pipe adapter.
- The POTV ONE uses a Titanium chamber vs. Stainless Steel on the Fury 2
For the most part, these vaporizers are pretty much the same. The vapor quality between the titanium and stainless steel is not really noticeable.
The glass mouthpiece and haptic feedback are nice upgrades, but the biggest “small” difference between the fury 2 and the POTV one is the stainless steel mesh screen (pictured below).
It actually makes a big difference in the airflow and overall draw resistance, especially if you aren’t the person that stays on top of cleaning like yours truly.
Fury 2 and POTV One Price and Accessory Options
The POTV one retails for $99, and that includes one accessory. Your purchase at POTV also includes a TightVac Herb Stash (pictured below) and a $10 Gift Card Credit towards future purchases at POTV. You also can purchase the ONE without an attachment for $89, and it still comes with the black straight glass mouthpiece I talked about above.
The Fury 2 is offered in two kits, and the first kit retails for $109. It comes with one free accessory, and you can choose between the WPA, the Glass Mouthpiece, the Glass Bubbler, or the Shred Grinder.
The second Fury 2 Kit is $119, and it comes with two accessories from the options listed above. Both offer free shipping and exceptional customer service.
Personally, I lean towards the POTV One because of the lower price and included glass mouthpiece, but both options are good.
ONE Vaporizer Review Summary
“Small and compact size with big airflow and performance.”
Overall the ONE is an excellent portable vaporizer. I personally think it’s tied (with the Miqro) for the best portable vaporizer you can buy for under $100 because it’s easy to use, durable, and made with high-quality, safe components. It uses a Stainless Steel heater, Titanium Chamber, and a glass mouthpiece for a pure, flavorful session.
This unit scores very well in size, portability, draw resistance, and power. I wish it had a bit longer battery life, and occasionally I find myself wishing it had a larger bowl, but overall the ONE is really great for the price.
I personally think the best accessory option is the water pipe adapter and then purchase some cheap glass for use at home because this thing rips, and it’s enjoyable to use with water.
IThe POTV ONE retails for $99, and you can click here to get it directly from Planet of the Vapes. The only place it’s sold.
They include a free glass add-on (choose from a Mini or Bent Mini Bubbler mouthpiece, Waterpipe Adapter, or Bent mouthpiece) and their ‘standard’ bonus item Tightvac Herb Stash.
