The Hydrology9 NX Vaporizer from Cloudious9 is the new and evolved version of the Hydrology9, featuring dual functions for both flower and concentrate. This all-in-one device stays true to the sleek and smooth design and functional technology the company is known for.
As with their original model, the water filtration feature ensures each hit is cooled, perfect for those who are sensitive to vapor or just looking for a luxuriously smooth vaping experience.
Below, find out everything you need to know about the Hydrology NX.
What is the Hydrology9 NX Vaporizer?
The Hydrology9 NX is an electronic liquid filtration vaporizer that can be used with dry herb or concentrate. There is an internal heating system as well as a leak proof inner chamber surrounded by cool water to cool down the vapor before inhalation.
The overall piece fits together like a glove with a few different parts, including two interchangeable chambers: one for flower and one for concentrate. It is small and lightweight enough to be easily portable, and discreet enough in its design to integrate into all kinds of activities.
Once you get the hang of it, it's a breeze to use while maximizing your stash.
What's in the box:
- Assembled vaporizer with silicone sleeve
- Heating chamber inserts (flower and/or concentrate)
- Magnetic charging kit
- Tool and cleaning kit with loading tool, brushes, replacement silicone parts, and magnetic mouthpiece cover
- User manual
How does the Hydrology9 work?
There are a few moving parts to the Hydrology9 NX, depending on if you plan on using flower or concentrate, but setting up for both is easy and quick.
The vaporizer comes already assembled, with each module fitting together perfectly, though you'll need to unscrew the top piece to fill the water chamber up to 70% full. The no-spill design ensures that you won't get water into other parts of the device.
Once filled with cool water, it's time to choose and insert either the fower heating atomizer or the concentrate atomizer.
The flower atomizer can be pre-loaded and comes with a cover to keep the flower snuggly in place. The concentrate atomizer comes with a quartz and ceramic cup to choose from, as well as a magnetic carb cap located on the top of the mouthpiece.
How to use
There is one main circular button to turn the Hydrology9 NX on and off. The temperature is controlled by twisting the ring on the very bottom of the device.
The temperature presets range is represented by blue (lowest), light blue, yellow, purple, red, and white (highest), and vary depending on if you're using the concentrate or flower atomizer, something the device itself automatically senses and adjusts.
The temperature range for concentrate is 450-750°F, while the range for flower is 324-468°F. To activate a heating cycle, twist the dial to set the desired temperature preset, indicated by the color coordinated light flashing, and when the light turns solid green, it is ready to go. As always, lower temperatures favor flavor, while higher temperatures are for stronger effects.
The Hydrology9 NX will stay at the set temperature for two minutes before entering a stand-by mode for one minute, indicated by a solid blue light, before cooling down to end the session. If left on, the auto shutoff will kick in after 10 minutes.
The charging adapter of the original Hydrology9 got an upgrade on this new model and is now magnetic, making it super easy to connect. The device will flash red when charging and green when it is fully charged. Full charge is reached after about an hour.
How to clean the Hydrology9 NX
Included in the package is a cleaning kit with high quality tools, just like the previous model. It's definitely a bonus that these tools come included, rather than being offered as pricey add-ons. The brushes in particular make it easy to deep clean all parts of the machine whenever necessary.
To keep the body and water chamber clean is easy: shake it up with clean water and let it dry completely between uses. For the flower atomizer, brush out any excess, making sure to clear any debris from the airflow holes. For the concentrate atomizer, the ceramic and glass chambers are removable and can be swabbed down with alcohol, or soaked and cleaned if they have a lot of build up.
Keeping the airflow chamber free of debris and clean is also important, especially if it gets clogged after using concentrates. This is simple since it is easily accessible and comes with long and custom fitting brushes.
What's the appeal?
The new and improved version of Cloudious9's original invention has noticeable upgrades, not least of which is the dual functionality for flower and concentrate. It's apparent that every detail of the Hydrology9 NX was carefully thought out, from the snuggly fitting parts made of high-grade materials to the magnetic details that make it fun and functional.
Practically speaking, the heating technology that heats from all sides is efficient, maximizing your materials and providing consistently full hits. The water cooling function makes it like an electric bong in the best possible way. Another bonus is the tool kit that comes standard with the device. In the same vein, having a replaceable battery extends the life of the overall device with the purchase of a new battery, rather than needing to purchase a whole new device.
While you can choose to purchase the Hydrology9 NX with just the flower or concentrate atomizer and tool kit, it's absolutely worth it to buy the complete set for an extra $30 and essentially get two devices in one.
At $300 for the dual capacity set up, it's well-priced for the versatility, function, and design it offers.
