Linx Eden Overview
Vaporizers quickly took the cannabis industry by storm as users recognized the fast-acting health benefits and harm reduction compared to traditional smoking methods. As vaping’s popularity soars, more and more brands are “rethinking” the tabletop vaporizer in an attempt to pack the same powerful experience into a handheld device. Enter the Linx Eden Vaporizer, a tiny and portable vaporizer that lets you easily vape fresh herb or concentrates (or both at the same time!)
We don’t like to give recommendations unless we’ve tried it ourselves, so we thoroughly reviewed this vaporizer for a week before this write-up. In this review, we’ll cover what’s included in the Link Eden box, a close-up of the device, the pros, and the cons, as well as a look at its fantastic value compared to many other models on the market. Oh, and we’ll give you some tips on how to use it, too! What’s best is that this vaporizer is offered at a beautiful price point, which may make it an option for beginners who want to get a feel for vaping without a massive investment or seasoned vapers who want to add a tiny ultra-portable unit to their collection.
The Linx Eden arrives packaged in a sturdy and concise but straightforward box with an attractive design. Upon opening the box, you’ll see that the vaping module is laid center, the accessories are neatly packaged to the right, and the lava plates and USB cable are tucked away to the left in their respective packages. Everything is neatly labeled and easy to identify, and the package also includes a small user manual that is written and informative.
Accessories that come with the Linx Eden include the cleaning brush, three mouthpiece covers, four replacement filter screens, and one silicone sleeve. There are three lava plates included and a sturdy charging cord. The unit comes covered with an innovative magnetic mouthpiece cover, which snaps on and off in a jiff.
Lind Eden Vaporizer First-Hand Review
The Linx Eden is incredibly sleek and stylish at first glance and is available in Onyx and Steel. The vaporizer is less than six inches long and weighs only a touch over 4 ounces. It’s incredibly small and could be easily and discreetly slipped into a pocket or purse. The model looks impressive at first glance but becomes even more so when you dig into the details.
The Linx Eden is notably environmentally friendly and health-conscious by design. The model includes no plastic at all. Instead, medical-grade stainless steel and glass make up the bulk of the model. The chamber is large enough for one person and fashioned from quartz, offering quick convection heating that preserves the medicinal benefits of wholesome cannabinoids and terpenes.
The model features one single button that performs multiple functions, like turning the device on and off and controlling the temperature setting. You can choose between four different temperature settings ranging from 360-428 degrees Fahrenheit, which gives you ultimate control over your vaping experience. Each temperature setting is identifiable via a different color LED light shown on the model’s front. These lights also help indicate the battery level.
The model is easy to clean, and the smooth design and evenly vaporized flower prevent caking or buildup. After a week of consistent use, the model required no more than a quick dry brushing of interior surfaces. The intricate parts of the model’s mouthpiece come entirely apart, which makes it easy to clean thoroughly as needed. The instructions suggest cleaning these parts with alcohol on a cotton swab, which seems easy enough.
Innovative Lava Plates for Concentrates
The most unique aspect of the Linx Eden Vaporizer is the ability to vaporize both bud and concentrates. The instructions suggest that bud can be vaporized alone, or concentrates can be added alongside dry flower with the three included lava plates. There is no instruction for or against using the lava plates alone, but most information suggests that they should be loaded on a small amount of ground flower to act as a buffer between the heating element and the plates.
These lava plates are tiny but very sturdy and well made. The plates are made of finely woven medical-grade steel and allow you to easily place the desired amount of concentrate between two plates or between three plates if a heavier dose is desired. The plates are reusable and can be easily cleaned by soaking them in alcohol and drying them.
How to Use The Linx Eden Vaporizer
Using this device is simple, and the instructions lay it out in simple terms that even beginners can understand. To use your Linx Eden, follow these steps:
- Unscrew the mouthpiece and load freshly ground material into the chamber. No filling funnel is needed as the chamber features a wide mouth at the top and easily catches ground flower as you load it. Add lava plates if desired. Do not overpack the chamber. It should be loosely packed to provide good airflow. Screw the mouthpiece back on.
- Press the button five times in quick succession to power the device on. The device will instantly begin to heat up.
- Press the button three times in quick succession to change the temperature. It would help if you did this until you find your preference’s temperature setting (outlined in the manual).
- Allow the device to heat up until it reaches the desired temperature. The LED lights will blink while heating, and then the model will vibrate, and the lights will stop blinking and stay lit when the device has reached the desired temperature.
- Remove the magnetic cap and take slow and steady puffs from the vaporizer. The device will remain at the desired temperature and automatically shut off after 4 minutes. At this time, you can turn the machine back on the finish the bowl or allow it to cool to store or reload it. Remember to put the magnetic cap back when you’re done, as it helps to keep dirt and stray materials out of the mouthpiece.
Pros and Cons of The Linx Eden
There are a few things about this vaporizer that we loved. First, its compact design is incredibly convenient, but it doesn’t hamper this vaporizer unit’s power at all. Also, cleaning the vaporizer was incredibly easy, and the absence of plastic or cheap materials helped this model fall in line with our high standards.
The magnetic cap is genius, as most experienced consumers know the frustration of dirty fragments building up in their mouthpiece while storing or traveling with their device. The silicone sleeve is also an impressive accessory that shows the level of forethought Linx provides. The sustainable design of medical-grade steel has a single downfall—it gets hot! The form-fitting silicone sleeve is sleek and provides an excellent grip on the module, preventing drops and burns from the hot metal underneath.
Using the vaporizer is straightforward. After the model gets to the desired temperature, it will stay on for four minutes before automatically shutting off. This is convenient for people who often forget to turn their mod off, as it helps keep the user safe and saves battery. Four minutes was usually long enough to finish what could be loaded in the chamber, and you need to let the model cool down before reloading, so the auto shut off is perfectly integrated. The stainless design also cools quickly within a few minutes of shutting off.
We had a great experience using this vaporizer, both with and without concentrates. Its performance with the lava plates included is outstanding—a small amount of flower (approximately 0.25 grams) and fully loaded lava plates were enough for two people to share and provided fast-acting effects with an excellent vapor output. The vapor showcased the pure flavor of the bud, with no synthetic or plastic aftertaste.
However, when using dry flower alone, the vapor output was significantly decreased. A fully loaded chamber was enough for one person but put out an excellent vapor instead of heavier clouds. For the price point, the device still fairs pretty well as a dry herb vaporizer but isn’t necessarily comparable to higher quality dry herb devices, especially tabletop models like the Volcano Vaporizer.
Another downside of this device is the shorter battery time. Of course, this is a problem we encounter with most handheld devices, as the amount of power needed to reach such high temperatures is often draining on the smaller battery capacity. Still, the device could be used for multiple sessions before needing to recharge. Just be sure to carry the power cable if you’re going to be away and using your vaporizer heavily.
Perhaps one of the most attractive features of the Linx Eden Vaporizer is the incredibly low price point. At only $99.99, the Linx Eden is easily one of the most affordable high-quality vaporizers on the market. Similar devices easily cost 150% to double as much and provide very similar effects. We can say that you get (more than) what you pay for, both in quality, performance, and the unique and practical accessories that come with the Linx Eden.
