Wagner Heat Gun is NOT a VaporizerJanuary 30th, 2007 by Alex
Every once in a while you’ll come across a deal that seems almost too good to be true. As the saying goes, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
Wiser words have rarely been spoken and they get reinforced daily through lessons learned the hard way. Our product that seems too good to be true is the Wagner HT 400 Heat Gun.
Now, your first question is probably, “Why the hell is theFreshScent reviewing a heat gun?” The answer is simple, because some shady headshops are trying to pass off these Home Depot glue warmers as ‘vaporizer lighters.’
They’ll look you straight in the eye and say that this gun is perfect for use with your pipe or bong and will make the smoking experience much healthier. In a word – wrong.

So, other than the temperature being wrong and the air pushed out of the HT 400 preventing it from working, is it at least cheap? No (again). Well, maybe if you buy it for the actual retail price of $33 from a Home Depot or Lowe’s. Instead, certain headshops are trying to sell this heat gun for $60 a pop – nearly doubling the price of the item. Strike three.
This is by far and away the worst product tFS has ever reviewed. So bad, we had to give it a 1.0 out of 10 rating. The only way it could score worse than that is if a staff member was injured while trying to review the damn thing.
As a vaporizer lighter the HT 400 doesn’t work, it’s expensive and it just plain sucks. It’s designed for construction and arts & crafts oriented work, which it excels at.
If you ever see one of these things at your local headshop, be aware that they’re willing and able to rip you off without a second thought.
