Review: Linx Ember
How it Works
As with most pen vaporizers, the Linx Ember is quite straightforward to use. After loading your concentrates, 5 quite clicks of the button in quick succession will power the unit on, while three rapid clicks will let you cycle between the three temperature settings.
Double clicking the button will engage the heater for 12 seconds, signaling the start of your session.
The Linx Ember carries three different voltage settings – 3.3, 3.8, and 4.2v. This is a reasonable amount of versatility for a budget unit, considering some more expensive pieces don’t even have adjustable temperature.
While three settings is definitely sufficient, we always prefer fully adjustable temperature control.
The Linx Ember does quite well at the price. The single coil wrapped quartz rod does well at preserving flavor while delivering a strong hit. It’s not quite as powerful as two or three coil designs, however it’s a tradeoff we’re willing to accept for such a compact unit.
The lowest voltage setting gives flavorful, smooth vapor, while the highest generates some great cloud production and heavy hits! The vapor is relatively smooth, however the short vapor path doesn’t quite compete with units with more intricate cooling systems.
The stainless steel build feels nice in the hand and feels quite durable, however we’ve also found it to be prone to scratches and scuffs if abused. It has a nice weight to it and it feels nice in the hand when using it, and aesthetically it’s a nice piece!
It doesn’t come with much, however you can’t really expect too much for Included is a USB charger, the battery, atomizer, mouthpiece, and a box which doubles nicely as a carrying case.
Packed inside is an average 350mAh battery, which will allow you to have hits throughout the day without worrying about having to top up mid-way through. The included USB charger will top up the device from flat until full in roughly 1.5-2 hours’ time.
It’s definitely a touch better than other inexpensive units, though not quite as impressive as something like the Source Orb 3 with nearly double the battery life.
As it’s a wax pen vaporizer, it’s exceedingly portable. Hiding away well in practically any pocket without taking up much room at all, it can go nearly anywhere with you.
It is however a step below other units like the Yocan Evolve Plus, which has an integrated storage compartment.
Ease of Use
Geared for beginner and intermediate users, the Linx Ember is very straightforward to use. If sharing with friends or strangers, almost no coaching will be required in order to get solid results.
Cleaning is also a very straightforward process, as a simple soak in isopropyl alcohol for the atomizer and mouthpiece will get rid of any build-up and residue with ease.
Most people will dismiss it as a typical e-juice vaporizer, making it a solid unit for stealth in those situations where discretion’s important.
Of course, you’ll want to be mindful of any order that the unit will put out.
For beginners or those who want in inexpensive wax vaporizer with solid performance, the Linx Ember is a pretty good candidate! If you’re willing to sacrifice some portability for the best possible vapor quality we’d recommend the Saionara atomizer with any decent 510-threaded battery.
If you’re just looking for a straightforward budget wax pen vaporizer, you really can’t go wrong with the Linx Ember!
