Snagged an Atmos 'Kiln' during their Black Friday Sales.
The Kiln is a newer product from Atmos, you can check it out here. The Kiln is a wax heating chamber that doesn't have any coils, just ceramic.
I've used 3 different Atmos wax attachments before this one; the Bullet 2 Go kits cartridge, the Bullet Max cartridge and the RT Plus chamber. So far, this product has them beat.
The biggest problem with the Bullet Max and RT Plus were that the coils would get really gunked up, at least with the RT Plus you can order replacement atomizers. In my book, all that build up in those cartridges is wasted wax... that's not really happening with The Kiln so far. Another massive plus for The Kiln is the airflow.
The only downside I can mention to this point is the ceramic disc at the bottom doesn't seem to heat up evenly. 1 side seems to heat up just a bit faster, so you have to sort of tip the chamber in that direction. And this is a small critique, but I think the air holes could probably be a centimeter or two higher in the chamber.
All in all, quite pleased with this wax chamber. Below I'll post how my experience is with different consistency wax products.
'Crumble' Wax - Vapes it no problem. Left with some small brownish marks at the bottom of the chamber, but it doesn't seem like there's really any leftover residue so far.
'Shatter' Wax - Again, no issues vaping through the shatter. However, unlike the crumble, this leaves a little bit of residue in the chamber, which isn't really a problem... just means you can take 2 rips off of dab.
'Taffy' Wax - Taffy is the best way to describe it... quite gooey, but can still tear it apart with your fingers. So far this consistency wax has left the most build up on the sides/mouthpiece of the Kiln. It's not a lot to the point of 'losing' wax, so not a huge concern. This consistency wax seems to bubble a lot more before vaping than others, and with the air holes being so close to the bottom it might be pulling some of that up on inhale.
1 Month Update:
After about a month of 'heavy' use, I can say I'm quite pleased. It's had no problem vaping different waxes, and the fact that there's no coils that need replacing is amazing. As mentioned in the original review, there is a part of the disc that seems to heat up a little bit faster/hotter than the rest. It's visible which part that is when looking, as there is a small amount of buildup on the rest of the ceramic disc. While there's a visual difference, it doesn't seem to be having any effect on the vaping.
The white part at the bottom = the part of the heating disk that seems to heat up faster/get a little hotter than the rest. The black = buildup, doesn't scrape off, but also doesn't seem to have any negative effect on vaping.
~3 month update:
Still quite pleased. Buildup is still there, doesn't seem like it will be going away. Visually not the best, but it still hasn't caused any problems actually vaping wax. At this point, the only thing that's really missing is some sort of glass 'bubbler' attachment for this chamber.... but that's asking for a lot =p
~1 year update:
So it's been about a year, and I'd say this thing is finally 'done'. I can still get a vape off it, but the heating disk is so caked up it just doesn't work the same. All in all, no room to complain getting almost a year out of this thing. And These days Atmos sells the bottom part of this tank so you don't have to re-buy the entire thing.
