Kaloud Lotus 1 VS 2

Kaloud Lotus 1 VS 2

Welcome to another blog post by the Oxide Hookah company. In today’s topic we will be doing a run down and comparison of two major hookah heat management systems in the hookah world. Kaloud is a shisha accessories manufacturer based out of California, USA and is the original innovator of the hookah HMD. Since their initial launch in 2009, the company has created multiple product lines to help enhance the experiences of hookah smokers and enthusiasts. Today our focus will be on comparing its flagship product line which happens to be the hookah heat management device. Currently, the Kaloud company has two variations within their HMD product line and today we will put the two against one another to compare side to side their pro and cons and what may be suitable for you as a user. So leads dive into it and compare the Kaloud lotus 1 vs 2. 

Lotus 1

The Kaloud lotus 1 is basically is the original hookah heat management system developed in the 2009. Although it’s gotten larger over the years and now fits 3 hookah coals rather than 2 the shape and form still resembles the body of the original. The design of the Kaloud Lotus one or also known as the Kaloud Lotus plus is very simple. The body of the HMD is circular and holds up to three full sized cubes of coconut charcoal. The lotus plus heat management system also has a lid which includes vents which allows you to manage heat from shisha charcoal and helps maintain the longevity of the session. The Kaloud Lotus Plus comes available in two different variants black and silver. The lotus fits all hookah bowls with a diameter of 3.25 inches and can you also work on smaller bowls as long as the vents set aligned with the shisha tobacco within the bowl. The Lotus v1 HMD allows you to regulate hookah charcoal heat to your bowl. This will allow you to have longer sessions and will sustain the flavour from your hookah tobacco. Unlike the Lotus V2, the lid or cover of the hookah heat management device has a handle for you to remove or add on whenever needed. This shisha heat system is manufactured out of high-quality aero grade aluminum and is safe to use when smoking. You will never be required to use tinfoil again.

The Lotus 2 is the latest HMD by Kaloud Inc. Unlike the original Kaloud lotus 1,  the V2 is more of a rounded shaped HMD. The new features of the lotus 2 includes a dome shaped vent system or cover which now detaches from the base of the heat manager. The heat cover no longer has an attached handle but includes now a rather detached carrier or attatchment to help manage and remove the cover when needed. Similar to the original model, the latest version also allows you to carry three charcoals throughout your hookah shisha session. Another difference between the Kaloud lotus one versus the version 2 is the fact the latest model only works specifically with lipped shisha bowls or the Samsaris edition made specifically for the lotus V2 whereas the latter is compatible with almost any shisha head. Some compatible bowls for the lotus 2 heat management system are options like the HookahJohn Ferris bowl, the Alpaca Lipache or LeRook. The new model of the Kaloud Lotus is also designed out of high quality aluminum and is also safe to use while smoking shisha.
