Any basic, straightforward search for “cannabis vaporizer” reveals a crowded marketplace of relatively similar, sometimes impressive and sometimes poorly designed, devices.
Maybe rainbow LEDs, solid gold air paths, or candy-colored collaborations set them apart from their shelf companions, but in today’s market there are new ways to consume. cannabis appear so frequently that it can be difficult to keep up, especially when it comes to new things. interpretations of the contemporary e-rig or electric dab rig.
The majority of electric dab rigs are portable, battery-powered units that effectively vaporize concentrates at low, medium, and high temperatures. For the most part, these devices consist of a percolator, a ceramic or quartz heating element, and a battery that users can recharge with a micro USB. Auxo‘s Cira is in line with this majority and, for very specific reasons, also stands out.
Whether you’re shopping or just invested in one of your own, here’s everything you need to know about Auxo Cira.
What is Auxo Cira?
Auxo is the brand and the Cira is its flagship vaporizer. The Cira works similarly to proportionate vaporizers; a unique macaroni-shaped water chamber and bell casing fit snugly atop a titanium or quartz nail (or bowl for the uninitiated), which punctuates the narrow rectangular upper body of Cira.
On one side, a digital monitor displays the temperature readings of a patent pending heating wire with a range of 450 ° to 1000 °.
How does the Auxo Cira work?
Right out of the box, the Cira is mostly intuitive when it comes to assembly and ease of use. The unusual shapes of the glass, case and charging device only need a moment of reflection before the device is ready to be charged. The instructions themselves come in a single sheet folded in three, much like the super simple instructions you get with a snap-in shelf or bed frame.
The Cira uses proprietary heating technology to evenly distribute and maintain precise temperatures in a titanium or quartz bowl, which consumers can screw into the head of the device. The glass component of the Cira is also unique; the glass is attached to the body via a mouth-blown dome that connects to a percolator mouthpiece and holds about two tablespoons of water. The separate, weighted load base keeps the unit balanced and stable.
Once assembled, you can load the nail / banger with a concentrate of your choice, then press the power button to activate the device. Then you can manipulate the heat controls to the temperature you want – or stay on the default setting of 450 ° – and double-click the power button to turn on the heating coil. The digital dial on the side of the Cira counts the degrees as the temperature rises, then counts down from 20 once the temperature is reached, giving you a 20-second window to make a draw or two. This suspend time can be increased by 15 seconds if you double-click the power button within 10 seconds of the countdown.
To assemble the Auxo Cira, attach the portable body of the device to the weighted charging base. Then insert either the titanium or the quartz banger into the top of the device and screw until it is snug.
Attach the carb-cap silicone leash to the shorter column of the glass element, then slide this barrel-shaped unit over the nail. Attach the carburetor cap to the other end of the leash and your Cira is ready for use.
The temperatures on the Cira can be managed via two small buttons just below the digital face on the side of the device. The unit default is 450 ° but can apply temperatures up to 1000 °. To locate your ideal temperature, make sure your device is on and simply use the + or – buttons above the power button to increase or decrease the temperature.
The Auxo Cira is charged by means of a removable charging base that connects via a USB / DC cable and an included charging box. Although the base is technically removable, it functions as the necessary weighted base for the device and should be used as such, rather than exclusively for recharging.
Out of the box, the Cira arrives with just over half a charge, and a full charge can be reached in under an hour. Progress is noted by the percentage on the digital face when the device turns on, and use is not recommended while charging.
The Cira cleaning protocol is relegated to removable nails and the glass percolator, both of which can be cleaned by immersion in alcohol. However, a quick swab with a cotton swab will extend the cool surface of the nail and an occasional isopropyl rinse should keep the percolator crystal clear.
Always wait until the appliance has cooled completely before taking it apart to clean it.

- Cleaning kit (individually wrapped cotton swabs)
The bottom line
The unusual shape and construction of this e-rig feels both cumbersome and unnecessary, especially the detachable charging base, without which the device cannot stand on its own. The digital dial makes temperature management easy, but the 20-second countdown and lack of haptic feedback – the little buzz that tells you when your tampon is “ready” – can complicate the process, resulting in wasted and burnt concentrates. .
The Astronomical Temperature Range effectively excludes low temperature tampons, intended only for users who pad at temperatures above the recommended range of 300 ° to 500 °. In my opinion, the main draw of the $ 180 Cira is the aesthetics, and potential buyers, especially low-heat pumps, might want to hang on to the Cira 2.0.
