Design and Features

The Nova LXE is not a particularly exciting looking vape pen, but it is 510 threaded so it is a pretty versatile device.

Design

The Nova is a fairly standard looking vape pen on the outside, but it has a charcoal grey finish that distinguishes it from other pens. It is a little different from other pens on the inside, specifically the mouthpiece, which has a dab tool built right into it. The tool is made of silicon and works quite well, which means that there is one less accessory that you need to take with you. It also detaches, which makes cleaning it pretty simple.

That makes the Nova a lot more convenient than most other vape pens. The only atomizer choice for this pen is the default ceramic one. It’s fairly deep and can hold a decent amount of wax, plus loading it is pretty easy with the built-in dab tool.

The Nova is about four inches tall and has a very slim diameter. So, it slips easily into any pocket, where it resides comfortably and unobtrusively until you’re ready to use it. It is also 510 threaded so it can be used as a battery for pre-filled THC/CBD cartridges.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The Nova can be tricky to clean because the chamber can get pretty messy, so you need to clean it on a regular basis if you don’t want it to get clogged. There is one additional component to worry about in the dab tool but it can be easily cleaned by wiping it down with a cotton swab that has been soaked in isopropyl alcohol.

You can also clean out the ceramic atomizer the same way, but for more stubborn residue, a burn off may be necessary. That is when the Nova is set to its highest voltage setting in order to melt any sticky residue.

How to Use

  1. Remove the mouthpiece section from the battery, and then unscrew the dab tool attachment from the mouthpiece.
  2. Use the dab tool to place a small amount of wax into the atomizer.
  3. Reattach the dab tool to the rest of the mouthpiece and then screw the mouthpiece section on to the battery.
  4. Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
  5. Press the power button three times to select one of the voltage settings.
  6. Once heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece.

Performance and Vapor Quality

Vapor Quality

The vapor produced by the Nova is quite flavorful thanks to the ceramic atomizer. That’s because the atomizer keeps the vapor pure, so you get all of the flavor and aroma of the wax. For that, I found that the middle voltage setting was the best, but I still got great flavor from the highest and lowest settings.

If you’re looking for big clouds, then you’re likely to be disappointed since the vapor is thin and wispy no matter the voltage setting. That is good if you want to engage in some covert vaping, so it has an upside and a downside.

It’s also great for use with 510 cartridges since the cartridges look and feel natural when attached to the Nova. I got all the flavor from each cartridge I used with it, which makes the Nova a pretty versatile vape pen.

Battery Performance

The Nova has a 300 mAh battery that is good for a few days of moderate use before it needs to be recharged.
