Design and Features
General Design: The Nitro 2 doesn’t stray too far from the standard vape pen template. And by too far, I mean not at all. It does manage to stand out thanks to the shiny, metallic finish, which is very attention-getting. The same goes for the R-shaped light on the base of the pen which illuminates rather brightly when the Nitro 2 is turned on.
That means you’ll likely get noticed if you decide to use it in public, so it’s not the best choice if you want to keep your vaping low key. It is also 510 threaded, so if you decide to try one of those pre-filled THC or CBD cartridges, the Nitro 2 will power them just fine.
Portability: One advantage of the Nitro 2 looking like many other vape pens is that it is just as portable as many other vape pens. So, you can easily slip into your pocket if you want to take it anywhere. Of course, you’ll get a lot of attention when you take it out of your pocket, but that’s another issue entirely.
Build Quality: The Nitro 2 is made from metal and feels quite sturdy, so you need not worry about it breaking if it suffers an unexpected impact. Rokin is known for strictly adhering to RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) standards, so their vapes are always free of any potential hazardous or toxic substances.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The Nitro 2 has a pretty deep chamber, which is great for big dabs, but not so great for cleaning since it makes the process take a little longer. And since the Nitro 2 uses dual quartz coils, cleaning already takes a while. In order to do so, you need to get a q-tip, soak it in isopropyl alcohol, and carefully wipe down the inner surface of the atomizer.
How to Use
- Unscrew the mouthpiece from the battery to expose the coils.
- Dab your wax onto the coils and then replace the mouthpiece.
- Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
- Press the power button three times to cycle through the voltage settings.
- Once heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece while holding down the power button.
Voltage Settings: 3.7V | 3.9V | 4.2V
Performance and Vapor Quality
Vaporizer Performance: Inhaling from the Nitro 2 is a comfortable experience thanks to its low draw resistance. That low resistance is due to the well-placed air holes on the Nitro 2, they facilitate a nice smooth draw on every inhale, the better to enjoy the vapor.
Vapor Quality: The Nitro 2 delivers some exquisitely pure vapor thanks to Rokin’s adoption of standards that ensure their vape pens don’t contain any hazardous or toxic materials. However, since the Nitro 2 exclusively uses a dual quartz coil, that pure vapor tends to be on the harsh side. The lowest temperature setting is what I prefer, but even there, I didn’t get as much of the wax’s flavor and aroma as I would have liked.
I prefer the more flavorful experience delivered by ceramic coils, so I didn’t enjoy the vapor as much as I would have liked. If you’re into big clouds and like your vapor on the more intense side, then you’ll enjoy this vape pen more than I did.
Battery Performance: The Nitro 2 uses a 650 mAh battery that is good for an entire day of casual to moderate use. It recharges pretty quickly too, so you won’t be away from the Nitro 2 for long.
