This type of concentrate vaporizer is totally new to me but I guess there’s a whole community of people who love things like this. These types of devices go by different names; nectar collector, honey dabber, dab straw, honey straw, a vertical dab, etc.
The Loki looks like almost like a normal vape device but with this extension on the end where the concentrate gets soaked up to vape. It’s a really unique design. And the device looks great too. It has a sleek aluminum body, a round firing button, and a clear plastic cap that goes over the atomizer.
The end of the device has a 510 thread so you might even be able to use other types of passthrough atomizers on here if you wanted. Maybe even from other types of electric dab kits but I don’t know for sure.
It’s 136.89mm (5.3 in) long, 27.5mm (1 in.) wide, and 13.6mm (0.5 in.) thick. It’s a small and thin device. I really like the small portable size of it.
You have two modes to choose from.
- On-Demand Mode – This mode fires the atomizer only when you press the firing button. You can hold it for up to 15s before it shuts off and you have to hold it again.
- Session Mode – This mode keeps the atomizer hot so that you can continuously vape until you turn the mode off. Press the firing button two times fast to activate it and the same to turn it off. I’ve been using this mode to get the tip hot and then I switch to on-demand mode.
This has adjustable voltage, There are three options to pick from, which are also indicated by the light on the device; 3.2 volts (white), 3.7 volts (blue), and 4.2 volts (green). You can change these by pressing the firing button three times fast while the device is on.
The built-in mouthpiece is flat and comfortable to use. The only complaint I have about it is that it’s not removable, which would have been nice to be able to clean it.
The atomizer piece on the Loki is called the XTAL tip. The tip is made of quartz and has a ceramic heating element embedded into it to give it a large surface area for heating the concentrate. The gold-plated stainless steel body has five airflow holes to evenly direct airflow and also give you enough airflow for a satisfying hit.
This tip is really cool. When you fire up the device, the tip gets hot and you just drop it on top of the dab. It just pulls it right in to vape. You can get a few good hits and then go for another one.
I’m seeing these for sale for around $30 for packs of five.
The airflow intake works by pulling in air from the XTAL tip, directing it through two channels on the sides of the device and then up through the tip. The benefit of this, or at least according to Freemax, is that it allows the vapor to cool down before reaching your mouth and giving you more flavor.
The airflow isn’t adjustable but it feels really comfortable to me. I like the draw.
The battery inside the Loki is an internal 650mAh battery. I think that’s decent but personally I feel like this would have been better with a bigger battery. But then again, this isn’t designed to vape at all times of the day so 650mAh should be plenty for most people.
The battery charges using a USB-C cable.
I really enjoy using this. It makes vaping concentrates really easy and convenient. The flavor is great, it’s not too hot, and it has good airflow. Personally, I’m a big fan.
