When it comes to portable vaporizer pens, the Atmos Raw Rx has grown quite popular. When I spoke to a representative, he told me they move about 200 units per day. And that's probably not including the vast amount of resellers and online stores -- or even wholesale units. If it were a popularity contest, this pen would probably be a safe contender among vaporizer pens.

However, after spending some time with the device, I feel that there is one thing that must be pointed out: the importance of the glass screen filter. Without one, it does many things well, but doesn't quite have all the bells and whistles to live up to the hype that precedes it. You have to curb your enthusiasm just a little bit, and you'll most likely find yourself very happy.

With a glass screen filter, the device works more like it's advertised--producing reasonable amounts of vapor for a small, portable pen, and protecting those pesky heating coils.

Review x 2

Because many pens don't come with glass screens like ours, we'll break this review up into two categories for each section (where relevant): how it rates with a glass screen filter, and how it rates without.

A Pen for Every Preference

The thing that's great about the this device is its versatility. You can pretty much throw whatever you want into the heating chamber. Herbs and tobacco? Check. Wax concentrates? Not a problem. Liquids and oils? Sure, why not (don't go overboard though--just a few drops, unless you have a compatible clearomizer). There's something in there for everyone.

Most portable vaporizer pens truly shine with solid wax concentrates, and the same goes here. The Atmos also works pretty well as an electronic pipe for combusting herbs and tobacco (although you can't pack as much in the chamber as a Yocan 94F). However, to vaporize your herbs, you're going to need a glass screen inside the heating chamber to prevent combusting your herbs on the coils. Glass screens are always included with a purchase from our store, but it's worth mentioning that's it not as simple as packing your herbs vaping. There are a few simple steps to follow,  then you're good to go. 


Functionality and Ease of Use

With Glass Screens

When used with a glass screen filter, (included at the Vape Vet Store), this is device works just like you imagined. In fact, don't even think about getting an Atmos without a glass screen filter. It still won't do clouds of vapor like a Volcano, but for a portable vaporizer pen, it gets the job done--discretely and on-the-go. Follow our tutorial on vaping and you're good to go.

Without Glass Screens

It's Great, But...

At first glance the Atmos Rx seems like an intuitive enough portable vaporizer pen. However, unless you're using your pen with solid wax concentrates or oils, there are a few caveats that take a bit of wind out of the device's overall performance.

First, as mentioned earlier, the device is not a true vaporizer until you learn to use it properly with a glass filter. If you don't mind combusting and don't care about vaporizing, you can use the device like an e-pipe, but there are still a few things to keep in mind. First, you must realize that less is more when it comes to packing the chamber. If you pack your heating chamber full, you will not get the best hits. In my experience, a couple of pinches of herb really had the best effects. You'll get several hits vs just one or two. Less truly is more.
One final note: if you mostly use the device for herbs, the mouthpiece filter can get clogged over time. This problem is common for these types of pens, and it's not that big of a headache. If it gets really clogged, you'll have to use a paper clip or needle to poke the herbs out of the holes in the filter. I don't think it's a huge deal, especially since you're supposed to inhale slowly anyway.



With Glass Screens


Vaping is great, but the main reason I like the glass screen is because the extra protection it provides for your heating coil. Herbs and wax won't get clogged as easily, and cleaning is no longer a hassle (or a hazard). Just tap out the filter and clean it off -- your coil should remain untouched. Just be careful when dumping everything out. The glass filter is tiny and effectively invisible once it drops onto the floor.

However, I have heard of some minor battery issues (which are easy to fix), and it doesn't come with any spare heating chambers like the Yocan or Micro G devices.

Without Glass Screens

(This could be related to low-quality counterfeits, like those found on eBay--we will test and see how this compares to the real thing now that we have pens directly from Atmos Nation)
A Coil Pain in the Ass

I'm not going to pull any punches. If you aren't careful with this vape pen (and don't have a glass screen protecting your heating coil), it can break on you. Not all of you, but some of you. Some heating coils are sturdier than others. I've scraped the coil with the packing tool on a mission to break some devices and they weathered the storm just fine. Other Atmos Raw pens, on the other hand, might lose a coil connection with some innocent accidental roughness with your new worst enemy, the packing tool. I personally recommend never using the packing tool or cleaning brush if at all possible. Simply clean the device by tapping out the left over herb, or wiping the sides of the chamber gently with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. If you don't heed our warning, our experience has shown that about 5% of units can get damaged. Rest assured, we do offer a replacement policy, though!

I am certainly not trying to scare you away from getting one. I am trying to scare you enough to take care of your device properly, though!

Check out tips on how to fix damaged coils should the need arise (they're actually possible to fix just using a paper clip in some cases).


While the pen isn't the most creative looking device out there, you can't deny its form factor. It's small, discreet, and it will fit in your pocket without a problem. It's got a cool LED light on the bottom that's pretty eye-catching (in a good way), and if you're all about stealth, no one will be able to tell it apart from any other pen in your pocket.


What's Included

While the package at Vape Vet Store includes a glass screen, overall, it's a little disappointing to only come with 1 heat chamber, where other devices come with up to 3. There are some nice attachments out there, such as oil cartridges, but your standard Atmos set doesn't come with these.

  • Heating coils: 1x
  • Heating coil type: Circular heating element
  • Battery capacity: 650 mAh
  • Heating chamber size: Medium (but can't take full advantage of it)



 Pros (With Glass Screens)

+ Glass filter goes a long way in improving performance and reliability

+ Very flexible with what it can do

+ Nice form factor


Cons (With Glass Screens)

- Glass filter is great, but still wish you could pack more into the chamber when combusting

- Would still be nice to have an extra heating chamber like many other competitors

- Feels like the glass should just be built-in, especially since it's easy to lose

Pros (Without Glass Screens)

+ Very flexible with what it can do

+ Nice form factor


Cons (Without Glass Screens)

- Heating coils aren't always as reliable as you'd hope

- Doesn't live up to its enormous hype. There are some caveats to keep in mind before enjoying the device to its fullest

Closing thoughts

If you didn't get your device from our store and don't have a glass screen, do yourself a favor and track one down as soon as possible. It really does help. If you don't have the glass filter, keep in mind the review is partly based on the hype and excitement for this device. If you have realistic expectations going in, you'll still probably find the Atmos to be more a good device, even without the screen. But, if we gave it a rave review and fueled your hype, you might think it deserved a harsher. Just something to think about.
