A nectar collector is unique... it is not a bong, it is not a vape or pipe - but something in between. A nectar collector tends to be on the small side, portable yet very easy to use.
Similarities between nectar collector and bongs
Nectar collectors can be sold in the dry variety or in the water variety that fills up halfway similar to a bong. Some even contain diffusers just like percolators! The segments of the nectar collector are normally detachable with a keck clip or joint holding the body neck and tip together. Nectar collectors work by heating the tip so one can inhale the concentrates directly from the container. Just like dab nails - the tip of the nectar collector can be of glass, quartz or even titanium. Glass tips are the weakest and more likely to break from heat stress with titanium at the strongest. The ability to smoke directly from the concentrate container makes it easier to gauge how much your smoking.
How to use
Depending on the material - use a butane to torch the tip until red hot and wai for 7 to 10 seconds for the tip to cool down but can vary. Then use a heat resistant surface(such as glass) to pushup on the concentrate and inhale your cocentrate direclty from the surface. Heat resistant surface is important you dont want your tip melting plastic containers or surfaces. Nectar collectors are typically operated by one hand and adds a unique twist to the smoking expeeience. Nectar collectors tend to be more affordable then dab rigs.
