As vapes have matured as a market sector, there have been (and always will be) constant attempts to build on the simple cart and battery. Airo’s proprietary setup is a big budget, multi-state approach to reinventing the wheel. I picked up the AiroSport Vaporizer battery and Grapefruit Sour Dream pod at Ascend Springfield recently to test it out.
The AiroSport Vaporizer battery is a nine sided (nonagon?) cylinder about the same height and twice as thick as a standard vape pencil battery. It has no buttons and an intuitive snap and click magnetic connector slot at the top. The one I picked up came in a bright green and was very light in my hand.
The entire battery is incredibly intuitive, and I assembled this one and produced hits in less than a minute out of the box. I dropped the magnetic connector pod onto the battery, pulled to activate. Doesn’t get simpler.
I also was surprised to find the Airo system vibrates while hitting to let you know it’s activated. I thought the novelty of this feature would wear off quickly, but I’ve found it charming even with extended use.
The Grapefruit Sour Dream Pod is named after the sativa leaning hybrid cross of Grapefruit Diesel and Blue Dream, but the cart itself is a distillate and terpene blend focusing on terpinolene, myrcene, and caryophyllene. This cart tested at 84.81% THCa and 87.92% total cannabinoids.
The flavor from the cart was tangy leading with grapefruit, fresh green apple, pear, and strawberries. Bigger hits pulled a much sweeter profile pushing the berry note forward while smaller puffs emphasized the sour aspect.
Grapefruit Sour Dream was playful and energetic, leaning much more towards sativa than a true balanced hybrid. A few small puffs left me focused with a clear headspace and ready to work, while bigger sessions made me goofy, talkative, and ultimately, a bit hazy.
Overall, I enjoyed the versatility of the experience and the ease of use of the hardware. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, visit here.
