Design and Features

Design

Linx Eden Design
The Eden looks a lot like a vape pen and is just as portable.

Even though it is mainly a dry herb vaporizer, the Eden looks quite similar to a vape pen. In fact, it looks a lot like the KandyPens Crystal, it has the same general pen shape and it also has a glass tube for the mouthpiece. The Eden even has a quartz oven like the Crystal. It’s a somewhat unusual look for a weed vape, but a pretty standard design for a vape pen. The stainless steel build quality is top-notch and the whole unit feels nice and solid.

As with most vape pens, the Eden has a single, prominent power button, and beneath it are a vertical strip of four LED lights that show the temperature settings and battery capacity. It’s a simple, straightforward design that’s very easy to use and understand. The Eden also has haptic feedback that alerts you to various functions, such as when the oven reaches the selected temperature.

Vape pen-like design means vape pen-like portability. The Eden is about four inches in height, which makes it very easy to slip into your pocket. If you are worried about the mouthpiece getting dirty because it is so exposed, there is no reason to be. That is because the Eden includes a magnetic cap that covers up the mouthpiece and protects it against dirt, dust, and other harmful elements. 

Features

The quartz oven is the standout feature of the Eden. It is still a rare feature in weed vapes even though it’s becoming more common in wax vaporizers, the Linx Gaia is one of the few weed vapes with a quartz chamber. The reason for the increasing popularity of quartz ovens is that quartz is a neutral material, so it has no effect on the flavor of the vapor produced by the dry herb or the wax. It’s a pretty nice feature to have in a weed vape this affordable. 

Another interesting feature is that the Eden allows you to vape both dry herb and wax simultaneously. I can’t think of another vaporizer that offers that feature, but I also can’t think of why I would want to use that feature. More experimental vapers might be into it, but I suspect that most will just stick to one substance at a time.

How to Use

Linx Eden How to Use
The magnetic top cap makes the Eden very easy to load and the convection heating means that cleaning is quick and easy.

With Dry Herb

  1. Unscrew the mouthpiece section from the battery of the device to reveal the herb chamber.
  2. Fill the chamber with herb and then reattach the mouthpiece section.
  3. Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
  4. Tap the power button three times to cycle through the temperature settings.
  5. Once heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece.

With Wax Concentrates and Dry Herb

  1. Unscrew the mouthpiece section to expose the herb chamber.
  2. Place a lava plate into the chamber, dab some wax onto it, and then place another lava plate on top of the wax.
  3. Place some dry herb on top of the lava plate and then attach the mouthpiece section.
  4. Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
  5. Tap the power button three times to cycle through the temperature settings.
  6. Once heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The herb chamber of the Eden is pretty simple to clean because you can use the included cleaning brush to clean out any gunked up residue. And since the Eden is a convection vaporizer, the chamber doesn’t get too dirty in the first place. The best time to clean it is after the chamber has cooled down but is still a little warm, any residue or detritus that remains will be loose and easy to clean. If you wait too long, then the residue will harden and make cleaning more difficult.

If you decide to use concentrates with the Eden, then you can expect cleaning to become much more complicated. That’s because the Eden doesn’t get hot enough to completely vape the wax, which means that the chamber can get messy if you decide to use it.

It’s a slightly more complicated affair cleaning the mouthpiece because you have to break it down into its component parts and clean them separately. You do that by using a cotton swab or q-tip soaked in isopropyl alcohol to wipe down all the parts of the mouthpiece.

Performance and Vapor Quality

Performance

Linx Eden Performance
The Eden’s quartz herb chamber and convection heating combine to provide above average vapor quality.

The Eden has some well-placed air holes which help to keep the draw resistance very low. The above-average ventilation that they provide means that you don’t have to inhale too hard when you vape. The Eden also heats up very quickly, only taking about thirty seconds to get up to temperature. One unfortunate problem with the Eden is that the top cap and mouthpiece can get quite hot. That is because Linx doesn’t use any synthetic insulation in the Eden. That keeps the vapor pure but makes the vaporizer warm. The silicon sleeve can alleviate the heat emitted by the top cap, but it can’t do anything about the heat from the mouthpiece. 

Vapor Quality

The vapor quality of the Eden is very good for a weed vape of any price, but especially for one that costs $100. A lot of that quality can be attributed to the quartz herb chamber and the convection heating. The quartz chamber keeps the vapor pure and the flavor fresh and the convection heating ensures that the herb is always vaped evenly. There’s no plasticky aftertaste that you sometimes get with lower-priced weed vape, just pure vapor the whole time. 

The two lower temperature settings of 360F and 380F are my favorite because I got the most flavorful vapor at those settings. If you want more vapor, then you can crank the Eden up to the two higher settings of 400F and 428F. However, keep in mind that the top cap and mouthpiece tend to get pretty hot at those temps. 

One unique quality of the Eden is that it can vape both wax and dry herb at the same time. It’s an interesting experience that can give you some big hits every now and then. However, it’s inconsistent and can leave the chamber pretty messy afterwards, so I wouldn’t advise you to try it too often. Every once in a while is fine as long as you don’t mind the big clean-up after.

Battery Performance

The battery takes about three to four hours to charge, which is definitely on the long side, especially when you consider that the Eden is a pretty small weed vape. However, the 2500 mAh battery can give you about eight sessions before it needs to be recharged.
