Product intro and specs

Rokin is a family-owned and operated business established in 2016. They provide a variety of products that include cartridges, atomizers, and weed pens for vaporizing concentrates. Their name pays homage to the Rokin district in Amsterdam, which is well known for its cannabis culture. All of their products adhere to the most recent FCC, CE and RoHS standards.

The product I will be testing for this review is the Rokin Dial. It features a built-in 500 mAh battery, a 510 threaded connection and precise voltage adjustability from 2.2 to 4.2 volts . It comes in four color options and has been optimized for use with 510-threaded THC and CBD oil carts. Keep reading to find out how it performs.

Features

The Rokin Dial reminds me a bit of an old school combination lock. It has a unique look with a big dial in the middle, the centerpiece of the device. It gives you tactile control over the voltage setting. You get 21 different settings and it clicks from 2.4 to 4.2 volts. You know they had cannabis oil vaping in mind because that’s a lot of versatility in the lower voltage range. The internal battery is rated for 500 mAh, and the device charges with an included micro USB cable.

The Dial weighs 33 grams, which is rather lightweight. It fits in the palm of the hand and is under 2 inches in height. The top portion is removable, but I’m not really sure why. You can see more of the oil cartridge when the top is off, but the device looks a lot better with it attached. They sent me the black edition, which is the best-looking edition that’s out there, in my opinion. It comes with a lanyard that allows you to hang it from your neck. Since it is so light, you might even forget it’s there, but at least you won’t lose it that way.

There are no buttons, the Dial is draw activated. As soon as you take a puff it activates the sensor, and you get a little LED light show going on in the back! The first time I realized that, I was a bit shocked because it doesn’t look like the type of device with colorful flashing lights.

There are no magnetic adapters. The Dial features a 510 connection and is compatible with most of the cartridges that utilize bottom-fed airflow. Some styles of carts might not work. But we are going to find out soon enough, here’s a quick rundown on how to use the Dial.

How to use

  • Make sure the device is fully charged
  • Attach your oil cartridge, don’t overtighten
  • A blue LED will flash when a connection is made
  • Set the voltage to your preferred setting
  • Inhale to activate the device
  • Multi-colored LEDs light up while activated

Performance

I tested the Dial with five different types of oil cartridges. Four out of the five worked just fine, only one of the delta 8 carts I tested didn’t make a proper connection. The draw activation feature works well, it starts up as soon as you take a puff. There is no way to turn off the flashing LED lights, but you can just cover it up in your hand if you are trying to be more discreet about it.

I enjoyed using it in the 3-3.3V range like I usually do with other devices. But I tested it out on some of the lower voltages, which is great for conserving oil and getting a more gentle puff. I wouldn’t suggest going much higher than 3.3 volts, but some people might enjoy cranking it out. The battery life is going to vary based on your preferred setting, but you can probably get through a full day unless you are hitting it constantly on a high voltage setting.

Performance wise, the Rokin Dial is up to par with the best 510 thread vapes that I’ve tested. I can’t speak to its longevity because I’ve only been using it for about a month, but so far it’s been working smoothly. The outer shell seems to be made of a pretty durable material and since it’s relatively lightweight, it could probably handle a minor drop, even with a cartridge installed. Rokin offers a one-year warranty, so that’s always good to have.

Pros / Cons

  • Lightweight
  • Pocketable
  • Unique retro look
  • Tactile adjustment
  • 21 voltage settings
  • Ideal for oil cartridges
  • 500 mAh battery capacity
  • Passthrough charging
  • Easy to use
  • One year warranty
  • Limited compatibility with cartridges
  • No option to disable flashing LEDs

Verdict

All in all, I really like the Rokin Dial. It caters to oil with its wide range of low-voltage settings and it is incredibly simple to use. It’s also lightweight, compact, and looks pretty neat. The battery life is decent and it lights up when you vape, if you’re into that. I would be fine without that feature, but I could see it being a hit at parties. Other than that, the compatibility is a bit limited with certain cartridges, but it seems to work with the majority of the 510 cartridges that I’ve tested it with.

If you want a device for vaping oil that’s easy to use, it doesn’t really get much easier than this. You’ll be puffing within a minute, just screw on a cartridge and inhale. It gives you the freedom to set your voltage as low as you need to go to enjoy all of the subtle flavors from your oil. The kit comes complete with a lanyard and a one year warranty on the device.
