What is a Nectar Collector?

A nectar collector is a handheld vaporizer that consists of several components:

Tip:The tip of the nectar collector is the part you heat up before touching it to your concentrate. The tip is often made of glass titanium, and it's heated using a torch until it's red-hot. The heat vaporizes the concentrate and creates the vapor that you inhale.

Body: The body of the nectar collector is the main part of the device and houses the percolation chamber. The body can be made of glass, silicone, or metal, depending on the model.

Percolation Chamber: The percolation chamber is located inside the body of the nectar collector and contains water. The water cools and filters the vapor, making it smoother and more enjoyable. The percolation chamber can have multiple holes or slits to increase filtration and cooling.

Mouthpiece:The mouthpiece is the end of the nectar collector where you place your mouth to inhale the vapor. It can be made of glass, silicone, or metal, depending on the model.

How to Use a Nectar Collector

Using a nectar collector is a straightforward process, but it's important to follow the proper steps to ensure that you use it safely and effectively. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use a nectar collector:

  1. Fill the percolation chamber with water. Be sure to add just enough water to cover the holes in the chamber without overfilling it.
  2. Heat the tip of the nectar collector using a dabbing torch for about 45 to 50 seconds. Be sure to heat the tip evenly for the smoothest hits. Let it cool for about 25 seconds before you start dabbing.
  3. Touch the tip of the nectar collector to your concentrate and inhale slowly. As you inhale, move the tip around the concentrate to ensure even vaporization.
  4. After inhaling, place the nectar collector on a flat surface to cool down. Do not touch the tip as it could burn you severely.
  5. Once the nectar collector is cool, repeat the process until you've consumed the desired amount of concentrate.

Benefits of Using a Nectar Collector

There are several advantages to using a nectar collector over traditional dab rigs

Superior Portability

Sometimes, you just don’t have the time or space to bring a full-sized dab rig for your next sesh. Nectar collectors are smaller and more portable than dab rigs, making them an excellent option for on-the-go enjoyment.


Ever want to dab but just don’t feel in the mood to deal with transferring concentrates? With a nectar collector, you can consume your concentrate directly from the container, eliminating the need to transfer it to a separate dish.


Nectar collectors allow you to vaporize your concentrate directly, making them more efficient than traditional dab rigs. You can get a stronger, smoother, and tastier hit directly from the source!


The water in the percolation chamber helps cool and filter the vapor, making it smoother and more flavorful. You can further enhance the flavor by using a freezable vapor straw to chill the vapor on its way to your mouth.


Nectar collectors come in various sizes, shapes, and materials, allowing you to customize your dabbing experience to your liking. Choose from ones made of glass, metal, or silicone in a wide selection of shapes and colors.

Discreet Dabbing

You don’t always want everyone to know that you’re dabbing. Your sesh is your business. With a nectar collector, you can enjoy a more discreet sesh in less time than it would take to set up a full dab rig.

Choosing the Right Nectar Collector

When choosing a nectar collector, there are several factors to consider, including:

Material: Nectar collectors can be made of glass, silicone, or metal. Glass and silicone are the most common material used for nectar collectors because they’re easy to clean and offer a smooth, clean taste.

Tip Material: The tip of a nectar collector can be made of glass or titanium. Glass tips offer better flavor, while titanium tips are more durable and heat up faster.

Size: Nectar collectors come in different sizes, and the size you choose will depend on your personal preference and how much concentrate you want to consume at once. Remember, the bigger the piece, the bigger the hit.

Percolation: Some nectar collectors feature percolation chambers with multiple holes or slits to increase filtration and cooling. If you don’t like a warm or hot vapor, consider one that’s freezable.

Safety Tips for Using a Nectar Collector

While nectar collectors are easy to use, it's essential to take some safety precautions to avoid accidents:

  • Always heat the tip of the nectar collector away from your face and body to prevent burns.
  • Do not touch the tip of the nectar collector when it's hot.
  • Only use concentrates that are intended for vaporization.
  • Do not overfill the percolation chamber with water, as it can cause the water to splash into your mouth.
  • Store your nectar collector in a safe place when not in use, preferably in a protective case to prevent it from breaking.
