Staroma Lite Plus DIY Kit
An upgrade on the incredibly popular Staroma Lite the Staroma Lite Plus steps it up with larger ruby capacity and unrivaled flavor! The Staroma Lite Plus utilizes a 20mm heater coil in SS316 filled with ~300 Aroma Ruby Pearls to deliver instant and powerful extraction. The high-quality stainless steel ensures maximum durability providing sessions for years to come.
There is no learning curve or expertise required, simply set your preferred temperature and inhale. Like all QaromaShop desktop devices the housing securely screws over the coil and Aroma Ruby Pearls for a safe and secure fit, ensuring there is no possibility of spilled hot rubies. Kits can be customized to your preferences, just fill out our contact form with your order number and let us know what color Suet Jade Porcelain Stand and StabWood Coil Handle you would like! We are happy to customize kits for free, just make sure your requested colors are in stock.
The Staroma Lite Plus is an economy model offering thinner stainless steel sidewalls which maximize heat transferred to the aroma ruby pearls. Because of the higher mass of aroma ruby pearls relative to the stainless steel housing, flavor from the Staroma Lite Plus is exceptional. Please note that the heating coil is exposed in the Staroma Lite Plus which is different from the other QaromaShop housings which enclose the coil.
For best performance we recommend stretching your heater coil on the Staroma Lite Plus slightly longer than the gemstone chamber. The coil can then be slightly compressed (like a spring) by screwing on the cap for a nice tight fit.

How to Use:
While QaromaShop DIY kits require some installation before initial use, once installed operation of the Staroma Lite Plus is extremely easy. Each kit will include installation instructions, but generally users will install the wooden handle, place the coil inside the housing, fill the housing with included Aroma Ruby Pearls, and screw on the housing upper.

Shoot us a note if you're not seeing the GO Kit you're looking for and we'll see if we can make it happen!
Once installed, users just have to plug their PID into the wall, place their housing inside the porcelain stand, and then plug the coil into the PID Controller. Temperatures are set digitally through the controller which ensures consistent sessions every time. As your device is pre-heating, use the included stainless steel scoop to loosely pile your herbal material in the Adapter Bowl. Once at temperature, simply place the Staroma Lite Plus housing on top of your bowl and begin inhaling.
Please note the Staroma Lite Plus is not designed to be used with an empty gemstone chamber. Do not attempt to overfill the gemstone chamber or overtighten the housing on any model. Overfilling / overtightening can cause cracking due to thermal expansion and will void all warranties. We only guarantee compatibility with QaromaShop products, please do not use modified / incompatible coils on the Staroma Lite Plus. For reference, see below for QaromaShop's coil pinout.

One of our favorite aspects of the Staroma Lite Plus is how easy it is to clean. Because the air is heated before touching your herbal material; the housing, coil and Aroma Ruby Pearls shouldn't require any cleaning. The exception is if users decide to use the Staroma Lite Plus as a double-decker where they drop concentrates on top of the heater. In this case, we recommend a good cleaning of the housing and Aroma Ruby Pearls between sessions which can be accomplished by turning the controller up to 900 degrees for 20 minutes.
We recommend swapping screens every 3-4 bowls for optimal airflow. Additionally, if users brush out their bowl and screen after each use they will find airflow stays open for longer. Bowls and screens can be soaked in isopropyl alcohol and rinsed for easy cleaning.
