FUNCTIONALITY

Both units have an ergonomic one-button interface and multiple temp cycles available, which makes getting to your perfect temperature or experimenting to find your ideal setting a breeze. The RöK has a simple 5-click on/off setup, and a 3-click temp select to cycle through the temperature settings (680°F, 780°F, 850°F). The Peak powers on when you hold the button down for three seconds, and uses a one-click setting to cycle through its temperature settings (from 450°F to 600°F, in 50° increments). Additionally, both rigs have an “on-demand” heat option - you can hold the dab trigger down and pull for as long as you like each time, so there’s no limit to the clouds you can create.

Both the RöK and the Peak provide smooth pulls thanks to their water-cooled percolation. The RöK holds water in the borosilicate glass base and vapor filters through the replaceable downstem perc, giving you the familiarity of a classic water pipe combined with the ease and coolness factor of 21st century eRig tech. Conversely, the Peak's glass attachment sits on top of the base and the perc is built right in. Either way, no matter what temperature you desire, you won’t have to worry about compromising quality or flavor with these pieces. The RöK in particular delivers smooth milky rips as big as you want to go.

Another feature that both rigs have in common is pre-heat or “party” mode, which can add a little something extra to the sesh. With the Pulsar rig, you can preheat your dabs by double-clicking the dab trigger and activating RöK Mode, which heats up the atomizer cup for 30 seconds to your desired temperature. Don’t want to keep holding the button down for every pull? RöK Mode was designed with you in mind. It can be used to maintain the current temperature if you’re in the middle of a dab and looking for a more hands-free dabbing experience. The Peak comes with a similar Boost Mode, also known as Sesh Mode, that you can activate anytime during your hit to extend the time your atomizer stays at a specific temperature, or increase the temp if you need a little extra kick to get the absolute most out of your session.

Upgrading to the silicone base makes the RöK a perfect traveling companion for every occasion at every location: from casual hikes to pumped up festival shows, and anywhere in between. The water filtration from the included downstem percolator ensures every pull is cool and smooth.

Puffco Peak Smart Rig Electric Dab Rig

Dubbed a Smart Rig thanks to its app connectivity, the Puffco Peak makes dabbing simple. The Peak is a fairly intuitive eRig suitable for any user, featuring haptic feedback to tell you when the device is ready to use, and a colorful LED light band that changes color based on the temperature setting. It also includes a Sesh Mode, aka Boost Mode setting which extends the current temperature and functionality of the Peak by 15 seconds so you and all of your friends have time to puff, puff, pass! The included carrying case protects your Peak when you're on the go, so you can take it with you without worrying. The ceramic cup interior ensures your dab won't burn too quickly or unevenly, so every pull stays packed with flavor. Just like the RöK, the Puffco Peak offers some customization options if you want a rig with more color.
