  • Mod Review: Smok G Priv

    Posted by JOE Romi Nik Digilio

    The Smok G Priv is a classic box mod with new innovations to excite anyone who enjoys vaping. Boasting a large touch screen and a screen-locked button, this mod is a breeze to use. The design of the Smok G Priv is extremely sleek, and it isn't too large to hold, as some box mods can be for those with smaller hands or a lighter grip. It also comes in an array of colors to please a wide variety of personal aesthetics. The G Priv is more than pretty, though! It also has the power to deliver an awesome vaping experience. The wattage ranges from 1-220 and temperature control from 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. To avoid accidentally changing your
    personalized vape setting, the G Priv offers a screen lock, so you don’t have to  worry about keeping your fingers clear of the screen when you’d rather just focus on blowing clouds. If you are looking for a mod with a sleek look, compact design, a touch screen, and plenty of power, the G Priv may just be the vape for you!

  • Recycling: It’s Not Just for the Environment

            Glass technology and innovation go hand-in-hand and are continuously changing. New percolators and other similar components of water pipes are being invented and tweaked all the time. Scientific glass really has been built on the shoulders of giants. Take it from a Climax Expert, it can be overwhelming keeping up with modern glass tech. So in this post we are going to take a quick look at recyclers. We’ll focus on what they achieve as well as how they work alongside percolators and water to achieve those silky smooth rips.

            So what is a recycler? A recycler is a series of waterways and chambers that help disperse thermal energy and add what’s known as diffusion (diffusion is the interaction between smoke and water). This in turn cools off the smoke and aids in diffusion by — you guessed it — recycling the water. In order for a recycler to work, a water pipe must have at least 2 different chambers of varying height from the base of the pipe to the mouthpiece. These chambers are interconnected by “tunnels” that carry smoke and water between them. The smoke travels first class all the way to the top. There are many different types of recyclers and some glass blowers have really taken them to the next level by even adding multiple ones in a single piece!

            Let’s break down what is really happening inside: Keep in mind that water pipes work because of differences in the form of negative air pressure (a.k.a inhaling). Gotta love science, right? So starting out, the smoke is pulled into the bottom chamber from the bowl or nail. From the bottom chamber, the smoke diffuses and water helps deliver smoke bubbles onward. It is due to these pressure changes inside of the glass that the smoke and water are pulled into the top chamber, leading to the smoke rising to the mouthpiece and the water being pulled back to the bottom. The process of water carrying the smoke to the top repeats while this negative air pressure is occurring.

            This may be a summary, but it helps illustrate the how and why recyclers work. Also think about adding percolators to the mix. More diffusion? I’m all in. Check out the pics above to get a better idea; seeing is believing! And make sure to stop by your neighborhood Climax Smoke Shop and check out all of the awesome recycler pieces that we have in stock. There’s a piece out there for everybody. Let us help you find it!

  • Climax Glass 16" Triple HoneyComb

    Posted by Climax Expert

            One of my personal favorite water pipes for many reasons (and not only because I own one myself); is our Climax glass straight tube triple honeycomb water pipe. The triple honeycomb water pipe at Climax Smoke Shop is a 16 inch straight tube with a sturdy base and if you have a cat (or any animal) like me, you will appreciate that this piece is not so easy to knock over. I personally like taller water pipes because in addition to percolators, the taller the water pipe, the cooler your smoke will be. This water pipe is a locally blown borosilicate glass piece that is exclusively distributed through all Climax Smoke Shop locations. Borosilicate glass is known for its fine quality and no thermal expansion; therefore, as your water pipe gets hot, the glass will not expand like other glass causing to break your bowl, nail, ash catcher or any other extension you may use on your water pipe.

            In addition, honeycomb percolators are my favorite by far because of the silky smooth and intensely filtered hit that follows. Honeycomb disc percolators have more diffusion than any other percolator because there is typically 30 small holes in which the smoke passes through. The fact that this piece has three honeycomb discs guarantees your smoking experience to be that much more enjoyable and less stress on your lungs. For an affordable price at Climax Smoke Shop, you can’t go wrong with this triple honeycomb beauty.
