NECTAR Gold FAQ
1. Conditioning: Upon receiving your vaporiser, charge it until fully charged. Once it has reached full battery, remove the charger and turn on your vaporiser by holding (not clicking) the ‘ON’ button for 3 seconds. Set it to the maximum temperature by pressing/holding the ‘+’ (plus sign) and then click the ‘ON’ button again to start heating. Allow the empty chamber to heat for 5 minutes in preparation for its first use (the vaporiser has a built in 5 timer and will turn itself off).
Note: Heating the empty chamber to maximum temperature should only be done once before its first use, not before each session.
2. Filling your chamber: Whilst the vaporiser is turned off you can load it with your chosen constituents. Avoid grinding herb to the extend you would when using papers as this will restrict airflow and use up more herb than necessary. Fill the chamber up roughly half way and avoid compacting the herb as this will also end up restricting the airflow whilst using more than you need. Once ready, turn on your vaporiser and select your desired temperature setting.
Note: Dry Herb has 100s of elements, each with different boiling points meaning that you can itemise these elements with different settings. It is important to know that the optimum temperature is subjective to each individual, however to find your preferred temperature we recommend to start at around 190C and increase the setting by 10C until you have found your sweet spot.

Tip: Once the vaporiser vibrates, wait another 15s seconds or so to allow for the temperature to spread evenly.
Tip: Reuse your herb until it is completely discoloured. This is usually around 3 sessions depending on your temperature setting and session length.
1. Cleaning Your Device: You should clean your device once every 10 sessions. The key parts to clean are the chamber and mouthpiece top (consisting of filters and the ceramic mouthpiece) which can simply be cleaned using the brush provided within the box.
1a. Chamber: For more stubborn residue empty your chamber and pad it down with a cloth or cotton pad soaked in iso alcohol for around a minute (this should lift the residue which can then be wiped clean with a new cotton pad). Finally, pad the chamber with a new cotton pad dipped in warm water, before padding dry with a clean cotton pad.
1b. Mouthpiece Top: For those who don’t want to spend money on a new filter pack. Any smaller pieces such as the chamber mesh, ceramic filters and the ceramic mouthpiece can be cleaned by soaking them in iso alcohol for 20 seconds and then wiping them clean, and then running them under warm water before wiping dry.
Note: If your mouthpiece top has run its course you can purchase a new one containing all the necessary filters and ceramic mouthpiece on the website.
The NECTAR Gold Vape is designed to turn off after 5 minutes for a number of reasons including to avoid overheating, to protect the battery and as a safety measure.
Simple answer – you can press and hold the Power button and the – (minus) button at the same time.
The answer to this is completely subjective on the temperature you’re using it at, how big your lungs are and your own preference. We’d recommend around 3 rounds at approximately 180 C.
Our best advice would be to experiment with it until you find your optimum, we’d say start at around 150C and work your way up in increments of 10C until you find your preferred temp, then use it for different lengths of time to see when your herbs need changing.
The dimensions of the chamber is 5mm x 10mm x 10mm and can hold between 0.25-0.7g. We would recommend to not press/compact the dry herbs as this can cause a loss of airflow.
You can purchase our accessories pack which contains 8x oven spacers, a metallic brush, a poker and 5x cotton cleaners.
The packaging you can see will be wrapped up in a cardboard box. So when it gets posted, you wont be able to see what the item is, however, if anybody unwraps the packaging they’ll uncover the NECTAR Gold Vape packaging.
- All of our vaporizers have been designed to be as discreet as possible hence their portable size and the decision to avoid clouds. So you should not expect any of our inhalators to act like some of the e-cigarettes you see out their producing foggy clouds of vapour. We’re in an era where some vaporizers are receiving negative press because of the amount of vapour produced invading non-vapers private space hence our decision to design discreet vaporizers. Don’t let that throw you off, clouds don’t determine whether an inhalator is working well or not.
- Also note that you are heating a chamber in the vaporizer which is in turn heating your ingredients. Note the work heating and not burning. You shouldn’t expect too much fog/vapor, which is one of the reasons vaporizing is healthier than smoking anything that combusts.
- Of course, we are going off our own judgement here, and have not seen your vape in detail so if your oil is not draining or your dry herbs are not going a darker colour after 3-4 sessions then feel free to send it in to us and we’ll have a look at it and if required, we’ll replace it within 24 hours.
- If you still want more clouds then we have a couple of tips for you:
- Leave your vape for another 20 seconds after the vape vibrates before drawing, as this gives enough time for the ingredients to heat.
- Try to draw through the mouthpiece slowly and consistently – this always works best.
The NECTAR Gold comes with a concentrate pad allowing it to be used with concentrates and resins. To use the concentrate pad, simply insert it into the chamber and apply an amount small enough to avoid dripping over the sides of the pad once heated (as this may fall into and block the air holes in the chamber).
Simple answer: Both the mouthpiece and chamber are made from ceramic.
No – the button on the NECTAR Gold Vape should only be used to turn it on and off. Once the device reaches the desired temperature then you can just inhale.
The spacers should be placed at the bottom of the chamber (the bottom being furthest away from the chamber lid) to keep it clean and avoid clogging the air hole.
The vapour quality can be controlled by adjusting the setting in 1C increments between 100C and 240C.
A simple answer – no.
The NECTAR Gold predominantly uses convection as its form to heat its chosen constituents however as the oven is in contact with some of the dry herbs then conduction also takes place as some of the heat is transferred from the oven face to the constituents.
Short answer: Yes
Long answer: Yes, grinding will increase the surface area of your herb therefore increasing the rate of reaction, essentially making it easier to heat up. The same reason why its easier/faster to mix a teaspoon of sugar into a tea, then it is to mix a cube of sugar (An anology which may help you understand the ‘why’). However, ensure you do not compact the dry herbs as this allow for less room for air to pass through and will cause tighter airflow.
Please check the setting. You can switch the vibrate on/off by holding the + (plus) button.
The fluctuating is supposed to happen. The device saves battery by heating when required. This means it may temporarily stop heating for a few seconds when reached the required temp, the second it drops 1 degree, it heats again.
