Hydrolife explains Nectar Collector
Nectar collectors effectively vaporize cannabis concentrates. The device is small and portable. Some of the devices only measure 6 inches in length. Nectar collectors tend to be very expensive because they are relatively new. They can cost anywhere from $100 to $1,000 or more.
The device became known as a nectar collector because it resembles a small hummingbird that uses its beak to dip into the flower's sap. A nectar collector is shaped like a large syringe.There is an embedded percolator. The percolator functions as a filtration system when water is added. There is a mouthpiece and a titanium or glass tip that functions as the nail for the concentrate.
The nectar collector usually comes with a wax dish. High-end nectar collectors may even have a rotating dish. Water is added to the collector's percolator. The end tip of the device is then heated with a butane torch.
Once hot, the tip is placed into the dish holding the concentrate. The user then inhales the vapor through the mouthpiece.
