Linx Blaze review

The Good: Very flavorful vapor | Includes two different atomizers | Long battery life | Low draw resistance | Glass mouthpiece | 510 threaded

The Bad: Thin, wispy vapor | Long recharge time

The Bottom Line: I enjoyed the amazing vapor produced by the Linx Blaze and didn’t mind that the vapor wasn’t particularly thick. I loved the big atomizer bowls and how easy they are to load. I wasn’t too crazy about the auto shut-off feature but others may like it more than I did.

Kit and Accessories

linx blaze kit
The kit of the blaze includes a quartz atomizer, ceramic atomizer, the Linx Blaze battery, a USB charging cable, dab tool, and a carrying case in which to put them.
  • Linx Blaze 900 mAh battery
  • Glass mouthpiece
  • Ace quartz atomizer
  • Zero ceramic atomizer
  • Magnetic mouthpiece cap
  • Dab tool
  • USB charging cable
  • Carrying case

Compatibility: The Linx Blaze is only compatible with wax extracts.

Atomizer Choices: The Blaze includes two different atomizers, the quartz atomizer, called the Ace, and the ceramic atomizer, called the Zero. Both are 510 threaded, so they can be used with different batteries.

  • The quartz atomizer is different from the dual coil quartz atomizers found in other vape pens. This atomizer is more of a bowl in which you place your dabs, which makes it easier to load and easier to clean than coiled atomizers. Quartz atomizers last a long time, but they heat up more slowly than atomizers made from other materials.
  • The ceramic atomizer is the standard coil-less type you see in many different vape pens and it has the same benefits as they do. Namely, that it heats up very quickly, is easy to load and clean, and has a large capacity.

Official Optional Accessories

The Blaze doesn’t have any official accessories—at least, not yet—but it is compatible with the mouthpieces of the Linx Hypnos Zero and Linx Ares.

Design and Features

linx blaze design
The Blaze is 510 threaded, so the atomizers can be used with different, compatible batteries.

Overall Design: The Blaze is just four inches tall, which would make it very portable-friendly if it wasn’t for the exposed glass mouthpiece, fortunately, the magnetic cap takes care of that problem. That being said, glass mouthpieces are always welcome because they keep the vapor pure and cool. The stainless steel body looks good in a classy, understated way that isn’t too flashy, though the Linx logo at the base is a nice touch.

Ease of Use: The Blaze is very easy to use since each atomizer is essentially a container where you place your dabs. That makes loading very fast and uncomplicated. The single control button keeps things simple, and if you want to use a different battery, you can easily unscrew each atomizer from the Blaze.

Build Quality: The stainless steel body of the Blaze is tough and feels sturdy, but the mouthpiece is vulnerable without the magnetic cap. The quartz coil is susceptible to cracking if it’s dropped, but if you avoid that, then it can last for a very long time. The ceramic coil isn’t as long-lasting as the quartz coil but it will still be a while before you have to worry about replacing it.

Special Features

Auto-shutoff: The Blaze has an auto-shutoff feature that is a bone of contention around the office and will likely be the same for most vapers. If you vape and then leave it alone for a while, it automatically locks up.  I don’t like this feature because I vape all the time and having to constantly unlock it all the time gets old really fast.

Others liked it because they could grab it and go without worrying about whether it is locked or not. Since most vapes don’t have this feature, it is something to keep in mind. Also, it’s worth noting that this feature isn’t in the manual, it’s something we found out when we used it.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning the Ace quartz atomizer: Turn the Blaze upside down over a sink, or with a paper towel beneath it. Turn it on and adjust it to the red setting to burn off any wax residue. Switch to the blue setting and use a q-tip or cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol to clean out the atomizer. Make sure that you never soak the atomizer in alcohol.

Cleaning the Zero ceramic atomizer: Set the Blaze to red, while holding it upside down, to burn off any excess residue. Remove the atomizer and, with it facing down, partially submerge the atomizer in a container with isopropyl alcohol for two hours. Make sure that only the ceramic plate is submerged and not the entire atomizer. Once time is up, allow the atomizer to air dry before reattaching it to the battery.

Cleaning the mouthpiece: Remove the mouthpiece from the rest of the device and use a q-tip or cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol to clean the inside and outside of the glass. Soak the metal filter in iso alcohol for two hours to clean it.

How to Use

The wide opening of each atomizer makes the loading process very simple and quite fast.
  1. Screw your choice of atomizer on to the Blaze.
  2. Unscrew the mouthpiece to expose the atomizer.
  3. Place your wax dab into the atomizer and then screw on the mouthpiece.
  4. Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
  5. Click the power button three times to cycle through the four temperature settings.
  6. Once the temperature has been selected and heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece.

Performance and Vapor Quality

linx blaze performance
The vapor produced by the quartz atomizer (left) is a little tastier than the vapor produced by the ceramic atomizer (right).

Vaporizer Performance: The ceramic coil heats up almost instantly, faster than the quartz coil. The quartz coil doesn’t take too long to finish heating, but the ceramic coil is the choice for quick-start sessions. The fast heat time of each atomizer means that you can taste test different dabs in a short amount of time. The draw resistance is low so taking big rips is no problem.

Vapor Quality: The flavor from both atomizers is amazing with the slight edge going to the quartz. I like to use the battery on the medium-high yellow setting and I could definitely feel the rush of THC, and the other cannabinoids, during each inhale. While I certainly felt the effects of the wax, I didn’t really see it because the vapor is as thin as it is potent. That could be a good thing if you favor discretion but it’s disappointing if you want big, fluffy clouds. The ceramic coil produces slightly more vapor than the quartz coil.

Battery Performance: The battery is 900 mAh, which is the average for larger wax vape pens. It lasts a long time, so you can get quite a few sessions out of it. The only downside is that it takes between two and three hours to recharge.

Linx Blaze vs KandyPens Crystal vs HoneyStick Plasma GQ

The Crystal and the Plasma GQ both beat the Blaze to the punch with their use of quartz bowls. However, neither of them gives you any options besides the quartz bowl, so the Blaze tops both of them there. The Crystal and Plasma GQ produce bigger clouds than the Blaze, but their flavor isn’t noticeably better. The Plasma GQ has the biggest battery of the three and its quartz bowl is the easiest to use because it just plugs into the battery instead of being screwed into it.

Bottom Line

linx blaze
9.2 Total Score

The Linx Blaze is one of the top vape pens money can buy. It comes with quartz and ceramic coils, both of which produce outstanding vapor. The density of the vapor is a little thin, but the taste is excellent. Low draw resistance and a strong battery life round out a package that is perfect for extract connoisseurs.

Who is it for: Anyone who likes an easy to use wax vape. Vapers who like big, bold flavors. Anyone who likes to try different atomizer types. Anyone who likes the freedom to choose what battery to use with their atomizers.

Who is it NOT for: Might be a little expensive for first-time vapers. Cloud Chasers.
