Review - Why You Should Buy
Having been the first hookah accessory company to innovate and release a heat manager back in 2012, Kaloud® finally released a new version of its predecessor mid-December of 2017. It took years to get here yet here we are and we are happy with the results. Your most likely familiar with the original model so let us skip through the whole introduction and get right into it.
Reason 1 - More Space For More Heat
With the original lotus having been such a revolutionary product from the get go, it was somewhat difficult to improve on something that really didn't need much work done to it but behold. The v1 would enable you to fit either 2 natural coconut charcoal cubes or 3 flat natural coco coals due to its curved structure. The manufacturer has now addressed feedback from the hookah community since noticing that there was a large demand regarding consumers desiring to use more heat for their sessions. The wall structure of the device is now much of a more straight and vertical build compared to the original curved model to allow more space to fit in 3 large cubes or 4 flats. This now allows you to transfer more heat to your shisha sessions to satisfy your crave of fluffy white smoke clouds. The hmd also enables you to use quarter circle coals exclusively made for heat managers that you may also want to check out as well.
Reason 2 - Lifted Carriers For Airflow
The previous model which was designed back in 2012, had a base surface that was a flat causing charcoal to black out due to oxygen suffocation. The new improvement features carriers at the base surface to allow your charcoal to stay raised allowing air flow from the side vents to keep your charcoals perfectly lit. You will no longer have to play with your charcoal or flip them in the middle of the session to keep them burning. Your sessions are now made easier to manage where you simply just insert your charcoals and you are good to go for the entire duration of your session.
Reason 3 - New Look But Still Original
Being the company's flagship model, it was only necessary to make a few small touches to its design for a more appealing and up to date look. The Lotus I+ has now been revamped with a matte finish for not just only its looks but to also manage heat in a proper manner. We've noticed after using the new HMD that although we are now using 3 cubed natural charcoals rather than 2 we are getting a more consistently heat managed session due to the new matte design. With the previous version, the finish was more shiny reflective which caused heat to bounce in all areas within the heat manager itself but with the matte design (which seems to be more enduring to high heat) the heat seems to be more consistent throughout the session resulting in an enjoyable smoke with full blasts of flavour and no burning at all. Another design change was adding its logo engraving to the surface as a final touch to verify authenticity of its product. This genuine product includes high quality packaging with a serial number for warranty purposes.
