The best portable vape on the market is a three-in-one vaporizer that delivers calm, smooth hits for dry herb, oil, and waxy concentrates. Now in past reviews, most three-in-one vaporizers have not performed up to expectations, but this vaporizer has a different feel and technology than the vape pens that have been dominating the market. Let's see what it's all about!
Right off the bat, you notice one thing very clearly: White Rhino absolutely killed it with the packaging of this product. The boxing and all of the accessories included with the HYLO is next level. The box of the HYLO alone will have you feeling like you just walked out of an Apple store with their latest tech gadget. Let's not get ahead of ourselves though, as vape pens and vaporizers are notorious to not work as directed, yet come in a box fit for a king. Let's see if that's the case here with the HYLO.
INSIDE THE BOX
Once inside the box, the HYLO comes with everything you see here. One thing is for sure, White Rhino definitely spared no expense with accessories. The HYLO comes with:
1 WALL CHARGER
1 MICRO USB CHARGER
1 WHITE RHINO XL RE-ATTACHABLE DAB TOOL
1 HYLO OIL BOWL
1 HYLO DRY HERB BOWL
1 HYLO WAXY OIL BOWL
1 HYLO MOUTH PIECE
1 WHITE RHINO WRISTBAND
3 EXTRA SCREENS
Note* Both charger units, the tweezers, and packing tool are branded and are of the highest quality. I always look for a brand that is willing to go the extra mile like this. They are not worried about profit, but more about providing value to the customer. Every little thing counts. This is definitely a brand I can get behind. Loving the extras!
The HYLO is really easy to use. Once your desired chamber (flower, wax, oil) is placed into the HYLO, the mouthpiece clicks on top. Once the mouthpiece is locked in, tap the function button three times. This will turn on the HYLO and start the device heating to the lowest temperature setting. If you would like to vape at the medium temp setting, simply hold the button for three seconds and the light will change to yellow. The same step is repeated if you desire the high temperature setting, and the light will turn to red. Once you have decided on a temperature setting, the function button will blink for 15-45 seconds while the pen heats to the desired temperature. Once the blinking has stopped, the pen is ready for three glorious minutes of vape clouds.

HYLO DRY HERB BOWL
I have reviewed a lot of dry herb vaporizers in my day. I have to say, White Rhino truly has it dialed in when it comes to the fine points of what the market is looking for in the vape game. The HYLO's dry herb bowl/chamber is crafted and engineered to actually WORK! The bottom of the chamber is perferated, allowing for far better induction of heat, allowing you to fully vape your product on all heat settings. The three heating temps are low (374'), medium (392'), and high (410').
USING THE HYLO DRY HERB BOWL
Once you begin vaping, you will notice that this technology doesn't give you the burnt taste other coil pens have, or the burnt popcorn taste of other vaporizers. It actually tastes like you are smoking a joint, with terpenes blasting through your taste buds — a rarity with vaporizers. As far as dry herbs go, the HYLO is definitely the best performing vaporizer I have seen come through our offices, and will be a part of my smoking arsenal moving forward.
One problem we have run into with other flower vaporizers is that you have to pack the perfect amount of herb in the chamber for full effect. With the HYLO, you can pack the bowl lightly or pack it to the brim, but the vapor is consistent no matter how you pack your bowls. The dry herb chamber slides right down into the opening at the top, but keep your tweezers on hand as you WILL need them for removing all chambers from the HYLO since they will be VERY HOT after usage. Childhood memories fly back, as it is a little like playing Operation, but without the anoying buzzer. As with all vaporizers, be sure to clean this chamber after each use. A simple wipe with the cleaning tool provided (not listed) will ensure a long life and full functionality for your HYLO.
WAXY OIL BOWL
The waxy oil bowl is magnetic and solid all the way around. The heating compartment surrounds the waxy oil chamber, heating the chamber until the oil turns to vapor. Just like the dry herb, once turned on, the pen will be active for three minutes, allowing you to take multiple hits per bowl or to share with a group of friends.
HYLO WAXY OIL BOWL
I recommend only packing one-quarter the depth of the bowl with wax, give or take a couple of decimal points — roughly the size of a couple of dabs. One problem we did run into with the waxy bowl was that after one three-minute cycle, some of the wax had turned into a puddle and did not fully evaporate. It is an easy fix though, just run the pen through another three-minute cycle and you're good. After two cycles, most of the wax will usually be evaporated completely.
BE CAREFUL: Too much wax can result in spilling in between vape cycles. Some product can be left over and can spill if not left upright.
HYLO OIL BOWL
The oil bowl is similar to the waxy bowl, but has a chamber at the bottom covered by holes and a wick. It is designed this way so that no oil is wasted. The oil will either be heated by the metal of the original chamber, or the oil penetrates down into the second chamber, saturating the wick. This also helps to keep the bowl as clean as possible — always a problem with the oils.
Again with concentrates, I found the best results came when smaller amounts of product were used. Even then, I was able to get multiple three-minute vape sessions out of each bowl. The taste through the Hylo is phenomenal, overtaking the entire mouth with each rip. Sometimes wax and oils can taste a little "gassy" and "metallic" when using a vaporizer, but with the HYLO you get a true flower taste with both flower and oils.
NOTE: This bowl calls for oils, though I was able to get results using wax as well.
LOADING THE OIL BOWL
Loading the oil bowl can get a little tricky. The best way to load the bowl for me was when I used a slightly viscous oil that became pliable once light heat is introduced. I loaded my tool up with my desired amount of oil and simply melted it off the end by warming the tool with a regular lighter, then letting the oil slide off the tool into the bowl as it heats. No mess, less stress.
HYLO OIL BOWL
When loaded, the bowl will look as such. Once a cycle is complete, you can no longer see product on top of the chamber. This means it is working! You can usually get two to three vape cycles out of a single small dab of oil. Efficient vaping at its finest. This is huge, because if you are anything like me, oils tend to disappear more quickly than anticipated. Helping you get high but also helping your wallet in the process!
