  • Is there adhesive in the Zion and Milaana?

Yes, Loctite® M-121HP™ Hysol® Medical Device Epoxy Adhesive  is used to attach the rim of the heater glass to the wood.  This is the coolest part of the heater glass and rarely does it reach over 150 degrees F which is well below the 300 F temperature limit of the this epoxy .  Not only is the adhesive biologically tested to ISO 10993, a burn-off cycle is conducted at nearly 1.5 times the operating temperature to ensure any contaminants are removed from the entire heater assembly. The adhesive is not part of the primary flow path and has minimal exposed surfaces

  • What is the difference between the Splinter and Minaana?

The Milaana is an unregulated device meaning that the heater temperature is a function of the battery voltage so it drops as the battery drains.  Splinter is powered by an e-cig mod that delivers regulated (constant) power with the ability to adjust it's level.  Milaana is a "Full User Experience" giving the user control, Splinter is controlled given the user a more consistent experience with less required interaction.
