There is a growing number of electronic dab rigs available on the market these days. Most of these devices are easy to use, which is why they were created in the first place. E-rigs have taken the old-school style of dabbing and launched it into the future. These electronic rigs make taking a dab as easy as loading the bowl and pressing a button.
However, not all electronic dab rigs were built in the same way or to serve the same kinds of smokers. The RöK created by Pulsar is one of the e-rigs that stand out in the growing crowd, and for good reason too. The creators of the RöK paid attention to the finer details, in order to elevate your smoking experience. This device easily handles both concentrates and flower with an advanced filtration system that provides smooth, flavorful hits.
Built as solid as a rock
The RöK is aptly named since “rök” translates to smoke in Swedish. However, it was also built as solid as a rock. The body of this e-rig is made with metal and is sure to survive a bump or scrape. It has a matte finish that looks classic when paired with a borosilicate glass water bubbler. This bubbler is just as durable as the base and is designed to resist thermal shock, greatly decreasing the risk of your rig breaking after extended use. The metal base and glass bubbler meet in the middle, which is tapered in to make the whole rig easy to hold in one hand. The whole device stands at just under seven inches tall. In comparison to other e-rigs, the RöK looks and feels more like a traditional water bong.
The mouthpiece is placed at a slight angle that is easier to approach than your average e-rig. It’s also designed with a silicone splash guard to prevent your wax concentrates from bubbling into the mouthpiece on the inhale. This safety feature was created because of the inverted design of the RöK. This e-rig places the battery on top of the glass bubbler, which is unlike most e-rigs which locate their battery on the bottom. While this provides a unique advantage for creating smooth vapor, it makes cleaning the device a little more difficult.
There are many parts to this advanced device, and it must be completely disassembled in order to clean to individual parts. You can clean the glass parts by soaking them in isopropyl alcohol, but the atomizers must instead be cleaned with cotton swabs. Also, the airpath tubes must be cleaned with a brush and the silicone mouthpiece should be cleaned with soap and water. All of these parts should be allowed to air dry completely before the device is reassembled.
Vapor as smooth as water
The vapor that the RöK e-rig produces goes down as smooth as a glass of water on a hot day. This is due to the fact that this e-rig has the unique feature of a glass disc percolator included in the bubbler. This percolator adds another layer of filtration to the smoke before the inhale, similar to a high-end bong.
Concentrates are heated in a coilless quartz cup atomizer that helps preserve the terpene profile of the wax. The vapor is then pulled through two isolated metal air paths. The vapor only comes in contact with metal, air and water, before it reaches your lungs. This design avoids any potentially harmful and bad-tasting exposure to electronic parts. The RöK provides smoother and tastier hits than most average e-rigs, and is capable of vaping both wax and dry herb with the push of a button.
A device as powerful as a wind storm
Pulsar created a powerful portable e-rig with a battery life that lasts as long as 30 sessions. The RöK heats up quickly and effectively to vape concentrates with ease. It also offers three different voltage settings to choose from, with the middle setting seeming to work best for concentrates. The V2 coil was updated in the RöK in order to provide more surface area to heat the material to temperature more quickly and evenly. To heat the coil and bowl, simply push the power button on the e-rig and sit back and wait for it to reach the perfect temperature.
The ‘RöK’ mode kicks the device into session status, where the rig stays hot for 30 seconds, allowing you to take hits without holding the button down. It also has a ceramic atomizer attachment for vaping flower, which should be used at the lower temperature setting to avoid burning your herb. The only potential drawback of having so much power packed into this e-rig is that it takes about two hours to fully charge it from zero.
Why the RöK is fire
Overall, Pulsar created a solid e-rig that provides some of the smoothest and best-filtered vapor possible. It is an advanced dabbing device that also handles flower, which is an especially unique feature for an electronic dab rig. You also get all of the following accessories included with the RöK e-rig:
- The RöK Electronic Dab Rig
- Dabber Tool
- Two Wire Brushes
- Herb Carb Cap
- Wax Carb Cap
- Coilless Quartz V2 Atomizer Cup
- Coilless Ceramic Atomizer Cup
- Two Silicone Atomizer Collars
- USB Charging Cable
- Four Crud Bud Alcohol-Filled Cotton Buds
The coilless quartz V2 atomizer heats materials evenly and efficiently, without exposing the vapor to any exposed electronic parts. The glass carb cap is a nice touch as well since you can turn it to adjust the airflow while taking a hit. The RöK has a fast heat-up time and variable voltage feature so that you can take the perfect dab in a matter of minutes. It’s overall a great purchase and an awesome alternative to a traditional bong or dab rig. Check one out at your local head shop the next time you are in the market for an e-rig!
