This unit features a fixed temperature and therefore has no temperature control. As previously mentioned to achieve higher temperature you have to hold the power button down for a longer duration.
However this is not recommended as it will result in diminished flavours and staining of the ceramic. We would have liked to see some form of temperature control to add some customization to your session like offered in the Utillian 5.
The vapor quality from the Sirius + was decent, just don’t expect to be blowing huge clouds. This is due to the nature of the heating element which substitutes a ceramic donut for the exposed coils seen on other wax pen units like the Kandypens Galaxy.
Because of this heat is distributed more evenly but does not get as hot as the exposed coil. This leads to increased flavour of your concentrates but less visible vapor. If visible vapor is really something you are looking for be sure to check out Pulsar’s APX Wax unit, it has 3 coils for maximum cloud production.
The Sirius on the other hand is more of a sipping unit, you will be able to get several nice flavourful draws throughout your session. The unit does heat up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit if you aggressively hold down the power button for a longer duration but we found our concentrates just seemed to char and blacken the ceramic when we did this and the flavour was severely diminished. So we recommend shorter draws to maximize flavour.
Like the other Pulsar units we have seen, the manufacturing quality of the Sirius seems adequate. There were no visible defects with the unit we received and everything worked as intended. There is a fair amount of light bleed from the green power light which tends to also illuminate the USB port, but this is a minor gripe.
We loved the Mi-Pod for buying vaping products, you can check as well. The inclusion of a silicone wax jar built into the bottom of the unit which is easily opened with a twist. We love the idea of being able to store our cannabis extracts within the same device we will be using it with. The glass mouthpiece does a good job delivering tasty vapor but we do wish they considered a different material like offered by the Source Orb 4 Premium Kit that has a magnetic mouthpiece instead. Glass units tend to be more fragile, especially if its something you will be constantly carrying around.
If the glass mouthpiece breaks the rest of the unit will be rendered useless so you will have to make sure you are careful with this unit. But overall it is very well designed and is as nice to use as it is to look at.
