What is a nectar collector?
A nectar collector is a smoking device used for consuming oil and wax concentrates. Our Eyce Collector is made up of three sections – the platinum cured silicone body, the percolated water filtration, and a titanium nozzle. The three pieces all come apart for easy cleaning. You can also remove the middle section (where the percolated water filtration lies), turning the Eyce Collector into a dry "straw", for on-the-go use. Check out the Eyce Collector video on our product page.
Adding water to your Eyce Collector
Our silicone nectar collector features a built-in percolated water filter. Before heating and using your new Eyce Collector, you should add water. Simply add about half a tablespoon of water into your nectar collector’s body. Be careful not to overfill! The Eyce Collector does not require a lot of water, if the divide is overfilled, water may flow out of the titanium nozzle which could cause burning. It’s very important not to overfill the collector.
How to heat your collector’s nozzle?
After adding water, you’re ready to use your smoking device. The first step is to prep your concentrate. Place your loaded silicone concentrate container on a flat, stable surface.
Next, heat the titanium nozzle using a butane torch. Do not wait for your nozzle to glow red - this is far too hot. Roughly 5-8 seconds of even heating will result in a hot enough nozzle. Heating the nozzle longer than 15 seconds is not recommended. Now that you have achieved your preferred balance of heat, you’re ready to smoke.
How to properly smoke with your collector
With your lips up against the silicone end, begin to inhale through the straw hole. Gently lower the heated nozzle until it comes into contact with the wax or oil concentrate. You can roll the titanium nozzle up against the silicone container. Do be aware; a little bit can go a long way. Start with a small amount (roughly the size of a ladybug). It’s as simple as that.
Things to remember when using your Eyce Collector:
- Do not overfill.
- Don’t use too much wax, the Eyce Collector is incredibly efficient, and less is often more.
- If you see hot vapor escaping, press more lightly or pull on the collector harder.
- Lower temperature hits tend to result in a smoother and better-tasting experience.
Storing and traveling with your hot nectar collector
After using your Collector, you have the ability to cover the hot nail. Simply pull apart the collector at the center, flip around the end of the nail and insert it nail first into the body of the collector. The Eyce Collector can also be used as a portable, dry "straw" by removing the middle section.
How to clean your collector?
Cleaning your Collector is just as easy as using it. Start by clearing out any solid materials from the slide using a cotton swab or stiff brush. After removing solid material, take apart all the pieces. Apply some Eyce Silicone Cleaner to the inside of the silicone body. Allow the silicone to soak for 5 minutes and then scrub away any stuck-on grime. Using old toothbrushes and cotton swabs are great for stuck-on dirt or hard to reach spots. After scrubbing, rinse your product thoroughly and let dry.
