Induction Vaporizer – Loto Lux Multi Material Vape

The Loto Lux is a new release that uses induction heating to cook your material. It's the first ever vaporizer to use electromagnetism to heat dry herbs, liquids, or concentrates. Formerly called the Evoke, the Lux has been in development for quite some time. At last it's available for purchase. In this article we'll look at what we know and what we've seen of the Lux vaporizer.

Loto Lux Vaporizer Review

What Sets the Lux Apart?

The big draw of the Lux is its heating technology. This uses magnets to heat-up the rod and in turn your material. This will give industry leaders like the Mighty and Crafty a run for their money. It will also compete with the Utillian 721, one of the most budget-friendly premium devices on the market. These use convection rather than conduction heating to vaporize materials. Electromagnetic induction heating is truly innovative. We were keen to find out how it would perform. Read on to discover what we found.


The Lux uses Bluetooth technology to connect the device to your smart phone. Only a handful of devices currently offer this facility. And it's something that makes your device much more powerful and personal. Apps can monitor your sessions and record what works and what doesn’t work for you. They also store your favorite settings. The Lux app is one of the most functional currently available.

Build Quality of the Loto Lux

The Lux is made from top quality materials and components. The body itself is classy wood and aluminum. The Lux comes with three different glass cartridges. One is for use with concentrates, one for liquids, and one for dry herbs. You slide the right cartridge for the job into the unit and position the mouthpiece over it. Inside the cartridge there's a metal insert. This is what gets heated to vape your materials. A computer chip inside the unit helps run the device and connects it to Bluetooth.

Who Manufactures the Lux

The Lux vaporizer has been a long time in the making. It was a silicon valley startup that first had the idea in 2014. Now, after years of R&D, a conduction vaporizer that uses electromagnetic heating is born.


Loto Labs has filed a couple patents for their new vaporizer. It has now begun shipping the device to those who've backed its development. The whole project has been crowdfunded and the Lux has enjoyed some great exposure throughout its development.

Loto Lux Style

The Lux has a very modern look. The grip has an ergonomic design to make it feel good in your hand. There's just one button. And the version we've seen has a classic wood finish with aluminum lines.


The Lux is a little bit bigger than other popular devices such as the PAX, the Crafty and the Da Vinci. But the Lux can vape all three materials. This makes it one of the most advanced portable vaporizers on the market in 2017.

Thoughts on the Lux Vaporizer

We'll have to wait and see what the vapor quality and performance of the Lux will be. But here's my prediction. I think the induction part is a bit overhyped and vapor quality will be much the same as that produced by other means. Electromagnetism heats the metal insert, which in turn heats your material. This doesn't seem all that different from conduction heating. It will still be surface heat that heats the material. I may be wrong - I'm no expert in thermodynamics. But this is how it seems to me.


It seems that the Lux is nearer to conduction heating than to convection. And convection vaporizers in my opinion will still have an advantage in how it heats your materials. Convection heats materials by forcing hot air through them. This cooks materials more evenly and lowers the chances of them combusting.


I think the Lux will perform well for concentrates and e-juice. The heat-up time is supposed to be pretty much instant. This will give big fast hits similar to a powerful battery mod. So the Lux may suit the nicotine e-liquid crowd more than the cannabis crowd. Again, I could be wrong. And I'll correct myself in an updated article if I am. But this is my current view.

Product Pros

  • portable 3 in 1 device
  • quality build
  • simple to use
  • app connected
  • electro​magnetic heating (new to vaping)

Product Cons

Conclusion - Final Thoughts on the Lux

Since this is a speculative article, I can't give a yes/no answer to whether you should spend $399 on this new device. What I'd suggest is that you wait until you see some user reviews or an updated review from us. The Lux is expensive and it's using an untried method to vape three different materials. And there's no guarantee it will produce superior results. The jury, as they say, is still out.


We’ll do our best to get some hands-on experience so we can share more with you. I wish the Lux well and hope I'm wrong in my surmise about how it will perform with dry herbs. Once we're able to test the Lux for ourselves, we'll bring you a more detailed review.
