The Linx Gaia vaporizer is a portable and versatile dry herb vaporizer that uses a variable temperature range from 200°F to 428°F and uses a quartz heating chamber. The Gaia consists of a three-button control with a clear OLED display screen allowing users to adjust their temperature level to their desired vaping style. With a powerful battery, the Gaia is not only boasting of accuracy and strength. It has a long battery life that can be recharged via USB. It is perfect for all sessions of vapor on the go.
It truly has a compact size and sleek design. The Gaia fits perfectly and comfortably in the palm of your hand. It’s perfect for those looking for a powerful and discreet vaporizer.
The Linx Gaia is a very elegant unit and very well machined without any visual defects. Linx vaporizers are a well-known and well established company in the vaporizer market. This is simply because of their high quality parts and builds.
The unit looks very elegant and portable enough to fit in the palm of your hand. It weighs 146g and comes with a bright and large OLED display that serves as a perfect compliment to its temperature control. Gaia uses a glass tip that can be covered with a magnetic cap if not in use. The glass mouthpiece helps a lot. Some vapes give off a bad foul taste when it has a plastic mouthpiece. It burns the plastic and you end up inhaling toxins. You don’t need to worry about that with this.
The shape of this unit will have most people assuming you are using a mod e-liquid vape box. The unit can easily be pocketed in a bag if the opportunity arises. Because of its size, people will easily notice that you are using it.
The exterior is elegant with a design that looks a lot like a box mod. From what we’ve seen from other vaporizers made by Linx, you can always count on their vaporizers to look good. The exterior is has an anodized aluminum finish. A big accomplishment for this vaporizer is the quartz heating chamber which happens to be the first time this will be done for a dry herb vaporizer.
The mouthpiece is designed to unscrew from the main body to open the quartz chamber. The base of the mouthpiece unscrews again to allow a good cleaning. It then unscrews again to replace the metal filter. They all unscrew and give you the feeling of a perfectly designed product. The device seems well built and has no visual defect. The mouthpiece seems to be a trademark of Linx and it is found on all their products which gives it an irreproachable finishing and a good operation.
100% Convection Heating
The quartz chamber helps produce excellent flavor and large clouds of vapor. Good taste is combined with minimal draw resistance for a prominent vaping experience. However, the conduction part of the heater helps to deliver big clouds. There is probably more conduction than convection. Convection delivers a better flavor than conduction but it is definitely a downside for the Linx Gaia. On the positive side, though, the chamber heats up the herbs, which means you can take a short or a long draw and still have a good feeling.
Update: The new Linx Gaia has been changed to 100% convection heating! It has a much better vapor flavor with no combustion.
Good Battery Life
When fully charged, the Gaia’s built-in battery provides approximately 2 hours (or 4 to 6 sessions) of non-stop usage. The charge lasts 3 to 4 hours (via USB). The micro-USB charger allows use during charging.
The Linx Gaia has only 3 buttons. They are the main power button and the temperature control buttons. If you simultaneously press the power button 5 times, your device turns on and you can now control the temperature using the + and – buttons to increase and decrease the temperature level. Once the desired heating temperature level is set, you can press and hold the power button to start heating. However, it heats within 20 seconds of the selected temperature settings and once it reaches your preferred heating temperature, you can start taking draws.
Easy to Use
It is a very simple and easy to use vaporizer. It is also very easy to load the device, simply twist the mouthpiece to expose the heating chamber, fill with your herbs and use the packing tool included in the lower part of the device. The unit turns on in five clicks of the power button located above the OLED screen. Below the screen, there are two other buttons to adjust the temperature to the desired level. After the temperature has been set to the preferred level, the Gaia has a very fast heating time.
The Linx Gaia allows a precise temperature control, which usually means that you can select the temperature according to your preferences in a 1-degree increment and decrement. Linx GAIA offers variable temperature control and you can choose between 200°F (93°C) and 428°F (220°C) using the OLED display and the temperature control button.
If you want to opt for a smooth and tasty vapor, you can choose a lower temperature setting ranging from 356°F to 392°F. However, if you want to take a harder shot, you should go to higher temperature settings.
The GAIA Linx has a unique air insulation system that is responsible for cooling the unit using incoming air.
