Smoking outdoors gets some serious star power with the Sun Token vaporizer, a novel take on the vape that harnesses the power of the sun.
Made from cherry wood with borosilicate glass and a walnut finish, the Sun Token is a beautiful piece that’s suitable for sitting on display as it is taking to the park on a sunny day.
They’re calling it the “world’s first solar dome vaporizer,” and as far as we can tell, they’re right. There are solar-panel vapes and solar-charged USBs for vapes but getting lit with a decidedly analog device, no electronics needed, seems to be completely novel.
As we’ve previously noted in our guide, vaping can give a milder, easier-to-control high than smoking. Since you’re activating raw plant matter without combustion and not lighting anything on fire, you’ll get a cleaner-tasting inhale. With the Sun Token, the sunlight that’s beamed from an included magnifying glass moves around the plant, warming it up and creating smoke that you then inhale like you would a normal bowl or bong.

The makers write on their website:
“Snap on the magnetic dome, and align the sun rays over the bowl using a magnifying lens (included). Smoke will stream upwards and dance around the dome. This method burns 3,000 degrees fahrenheit less than a conventional lighter. It is healthier, better tasting, more efficient, wind proof, fun, ecological, and beautiful to watch. Sunlight travels 150 million kilometers and 500 seconds all to reach your solar dome.”
Hand-crafted in Fredericksburg, Virginia by Hector Campos, the full Sun Token kit is $145. If you have your own bowl already, you can purchase individual pieces or replacement parts.
