POTV ONE Review: Small Size, Small Price, Big Performance

A killer combination of quality vapor, the right features and accessories, and a small size at an affordable price.

Table of contents

The Planet of the Vapes ONE combines tasty, potent vapor quality with an ultra-portable size, at a price point that makes other dry herb vapes seem like a waste of time and money. We took the popular Fenix Mini / Fury 2 vaporizer, added some important features and accessories, and made it very affordable. Whether you’re getting your first dry herb vaporizer, or just looking for an upgrade, the ONE is a great place to land.

Vapor quality that won’t disappoint

The ONE uses a hybrid heating design for quick, strong sessions on the go. The stainless steel heating element sits below the herbs, never touching them, for tasty hits at the beginning of a session that give way to strong clouds. You can certainly find a better tasting vape out there, like the Solo 2 with its glass mouthpiece, but nothing this small or affordable. The POTV ONE also works well for concentrate sessions, using the included stainless steel mesh pad.

Ultra-portable size

The ONE isn’t just small - it’s one of the smallest vapes we carry. At three inches tall, two inches wide and only one inch deep, it plays well with your other pocketable items. It can be concealed in an average-sized fist when you need to be stealthy, without sacrificing features or strong sessions. Best of all, it doesn’t perform like a small vape. Every millimeter feels like it’s been put to good use, and you’ll be impressed with the vapor quality and battery life you get out of something this small.

Good enough battery life

Battery life is good for a dry herb vaporizer this size, which sports a 1600mAh internal LiPo battery. Most vaporizers in this size class sacrifice battery life to get there, but the ONE can squeeze out between six and eight sessions, or 30 to 40 minutes of run-time, on a single 90-minute charge. Sessions on the ONE have a four-minute timer to preserve battery life, which is about as short as it can go and still fully cook your herbs. If you need better battery life and want to stay in this size range, look into a portable vaporizer with removable batteries, like Arizer’s larger ArGo, or DaVinci’s smaller MIQRO.

POTV ONE Vaporizer Review Battery Life

Fast heat up time

The ONE reaches temperature in thirty seconds on average, which is pretty standard for today’s portable vaporizers. That’s quick enough for a full session anywhere, or you can turn it off after a quick hit or two and come back for more later. The ONE heats up fast enough that we decided to add vibration feedback when it reaches temperature so you don’t miss it -- go ahead, get distracted!

Planet of the Vapes ONE NEW Version

Easy controls with all the features

Controlling the ONE is easy to figure out, even if you don’t like to read instructions. Three clicks of the big button turns it on and off, and the little buttons adjust the temperature. Hold both buttons together to toggle the temperature between Celsius and Fahrenheit, as well as flip the display. That’s right, not only did we add vibration feedback, but the ONE also lets you flip the display for those times when you hold it upside down.

Small bowl size

The ONE’s bowl is on the small size, with a capacity ranging from 0.10 to 0.15 grams, depending on your grind and pack. It’s the perfect size when you’re on your own, but won’t power much of a group session. Heavy users might need two bowls with the POTV ONE, compared to one session with a portable vaporizer like the Boundless CF, which has one of the bigger bowls on the market.

That new mouthpiece!

If you love glass mouthpieces, or like using your vaporizers with glass, the ONE has you covered with the included Accessory Attachment. It comes standard with a glass mouthpiece that is hot-swappable for a bent mouthpiece, water pipe adapter, or even a bubbler, all sold separately. Best of all, this design lets you add glass without shrinking the bowl size, unlike the more limited options currently available for other models of this vape.

The NEW Version comes with our updated Magnetic Accessory Attachment that easily slide in and out of place for an easier, more reliable system.

Planet of the Vapes ONE NEW Version Mouthpiece

The ONE also comes with a mesh mouthpiece screen instead of the original stamped metal screen. This little change makes a big difference, opening up the vapor path and air flow with a screen that doesn’t clog as much, or need as many deep cleanings.

Materials and construction

The ONE only weighs five ounces, but feels solid due to its small size, and metal outer shell with soft-touch coating. The ONE has a robust, stainless steel heater and a responsive, titanium heating chamber that won’t crack or break like ceramic chambers. If you enjoy the purity of glass, or like filtering your vapor through water, the included Accessory Attachment brings all of that into play for you, as well.

POTV ONE Vaporizer Review In Hand

Most complete version

The Planet of the Vapes ONE is built on the popular Fenix Mini platform, which has seen a half dozen different versions released in the last two years, so we rounded them all up and compared them here for you. The Planet of the Vapes ONE, however, is more than just a copy, with exclusive features like vibration feedback, a screen flip option, and the Accessory Attachment. At the end of the day they’re all excellent vaporizers, so don’t worry if you already bought a different model.

Every version will work with our Original Accessory Attachment, so make sure that’s in your arsenal -- it’s a game changer for this vape!

Lots of accessories

The ONE comes with the standard stuff, like an extra gasket, a brush, tweezers and a packing tool, but that’s not all. We also included a concentrate pad, a dosing capsule, and our Accessory Attachment to get you rolling in any circumstance. The only thing left to add is a glass mouthpiece that fits your style, whether it’s a bubbler, or a water pipe adapter to use with your favorite pieces for even cooler vapor.

POTV ONE Vaporizer Review What's in the Box

For best results

The ONE’s hybrid heating system is pretty forgiving when it comes to how you use it. We got good results with partial or full loads, as well as fine or coarse grinds (even unground herbs). It also works well with short or long draws, so take the time to find your favorite method. Just make sure not to pack it tightly like you would a conduction vaporizer - the ONE needs the air to flow through your herbs.

Cleaning and maintenance

Cleaning the ONE is straightforward and requires nothing more than some isopropyl alcohol and alcohol wipes. Our full cleaning guide will walk you through the details, but we should mention here not to soak any of the mouthpieces in alcohol. Also, don’t try to remove the black o-rings inside the Accessory Attachment, they don’t come out and you’ll ruin them if you try.

Who’s the ONE not for?

Heavy users will take issue with the short battery life and undersized bowl. The decent battery life will get you through the night, but not all day, as you vape two bowls at a time until it runs out. Vapor connoisseurs can look towards something like the POTV Lobo for a bigger oven, a replaceable battery, and stronger vapor.

Who’s the ONE for?

The ONE is ultra-portable with big vapor, a quick heat up time, and a price that fits most budgets. The included Accessory Attachment adds the versatility of vaping with glass, without reducing the bowl size to microdosing. If you’re new to vaporizing, or looking for one of the best values on the market, get the ONE, and get on with your life!


The ONE portable dry herb vaporizer marks the first time Planet of the Vapes has invested in changing a vaporizer, so we’re understandably excited about it. The X MAX Starry has a similar feature set for less money, but the ONE is smaller and has a different heating system to go along with the added functionality the Accessory Attachment brings to the table. We think the ONE is a fantastic way to check out vaporizing, but still good enough to please serious vaporists and milk a bubbler.

Q: How to use the POTV ONE?
A: For best results with the POTV Lobo, use a medium grind and light pack, filling it slightly above the top and tamping softly. Set the temperature to 390°F/198°C, and take light to medium draws for three to five seconds when it vibrates.

Q: Is the POTV ONE worth it?

A: At only $99, the POTV ONE is a great pick. It’s super portable, heats up fast, and delivers great vapor quality. Plus, it heats up quickly, works well with glass accessories, and is a great choice for new and experienced users.

Q: Is the POTV ONE good for concentrates?

A: The POTV ONE provides light but satisfying concentrate sessions. Place the included concentrate pad inside the oven, place your material on top, and then set the temperature to the highest setting before inhaling. Concentrate sessions with the ONE are light and flavorful but effective.
