Boundless CF vs CFX Comparison - What You Need to Know
In today's post we are going to be talking about the Boundless CFX and how it compares to the smaller and cheaper Boundless CF. Here's what you need to know if you're considering buying either unit.
The Boundless CFX which we've reviewed previously is a very efficient portable dry herb vaporizer that features both conduction and convection heating technology. The most comparable in size and technology to the CFX would be the world renowned Mighty Vaporizer by Storz & Bickel but half the price. So we previously established that the CFX is a very high performance vaporizer that is in my opinion best value for a portable dry herb vape.
The Boundless CF is another vaporizer, very similar the the Boundless CFX but being a little more 'bare-bones', the CF features all the basic technology that makes the CFX perform great, but without the bells and whistles you get with the CFX. The CF has a built-in Li-Ion battery with 1300 mAh capacity while the CFX being larger of course has twice the battery life versus the CFX. So the biggest difference between them is better battery life with the CFX at the cost of size, with the CF being smaller and more portable, but half the battery life. Whether you prioritize battery life over size is up to you!
Some other differences between the two units are the display and heating options. The CFX features a very high quality color screen that will give you precise temperature controls as well as battery life indicators. The CF has five LED's on the side of the unit which allow you to cycle between a variety of set temperatures in order to control your heat. So you're not going to get the color screen or digital temperature controls but honestly, the CF with the variety of set temperatures and the same heat-up time as the CFX will perform just as well as the CFX in a smaller package. one really cool feature about the CF as well is the 'stealth mode'. To enter 'stealth mode' simply hold the power button for 3 seconds which will cause all the LED's to turn off during operation making the CF more discrete than the CFX as well.
To summarize, both units are absolutely identical in terms of the convection and conduction heating, chamber size is the same and performance is the same as well. The CFX is quite a bit larger with double the battery life of the CF, while the CF is much smaller and more portable but with half the battery life. The CFX features a full digital color screen for optimum temperature controls while the CF has a series of LED's for temperature display. If you're looking for technology then the CFX is an amazing vaporizer offering the highest level of performance while the CF will match performance but with just the necessities.
