Linx Hermes 2 Review: Breakdown

Build Quality

The Linx Hermes 2 looks very premium. Its shell and mouthpiece is made of premium stainless steel and is constructed entirely from medical grade components. There are no buttons on the Hermes 2 and there is no LED display screen.

Looking at it reminds me of the old vape pens back in the old days where the eGo vape pens were popular but the Linx Hermes 2 is way smaller in comparison to the vape pens before. Powering the Hermes 2 is a built-in battery with a capacity of 290 mah and it has a voltage output of 3.3 volts to 4.2 volts.

The battery capacity is pretty small in terms of the voltage output it can deliver but considering how small the Hermes 2 is, Linx has to make some small adjustments. There is a small USB charger included in the kit and it attaches to the bottom of the Hermes 2 if you remove the cap covering it.

The glass tank has a volume of 0.5 ml which you will think is very small but it is because the Hermes 2 is made to be used for vaping e-liquid concentrates and vape oils. 

The Linx Hermes 2 only comes in 1 color which is a pure stainless still and by looking at Linx’s other products, I don’t expect that they will be releasing other color variants for the Hermes 2 which is fine for me since I like the simple and classy looks of most stainless steel mods.

Vapor Quality

The Linx Hermes 2 is made to be a mouth to lung style vape pen and it will give everyone a tight and restrictive lung hit which is perfect for high nicotine liquids.

The Hermes 2 can output from 3.3 volts to 4.2 volts which is the right amount of power for how it is intended to be used and since the Hermes 2 is made with those making the switch in mind, what you will get with every puff is a tight draw just like how alternative methods may feel.

Versatility

Versatility

The Linx Hermes 2 is a very simple vaporizer. There is nothing you can do to change how it vapes. There are no adjustment buttons and the airflow is also not adjustable. It will always be a mouth to lung style vape pen. You will not have an option to change the tank as well and you will most likely always be using e-liquids, concentrates, and vape oils.

The battery is not removable and since it has a small capacity, you will find yourself charging the device more often and Linx says it can take up to 2 hours to fully charge the lithium-ion battery so you have to keep that in mind.

Portability

Portability

The Linx Hermes 2 is a very portable vaporizer. It is almost the size of a cigarette but just slightly bigger. It is only 110.3 mm in height and 10.5 mm in diameter with a weight of 28 grams.

It can easily fit in the palm of your hand and you will have no problems carrying it around. It is a perfect vaping device when you are traveling and even on parties or social gatherings since it so stealthy.

Conclusion

The Linx Hermes 2 is a good entry level vaporizer for those deciding to switch to vaping. If you are looking for a super compact, portable and stealthy device and you don’t mind the super small tank, small battery capacity at an affordable price then this is for you. The very small tank capacity means that you will be stuck using the non-traditional vaping oils, concentrates or e-liquids but the size, portability, and quality of its construction outweigh the cons.
