Introducing QaromaShop Upgrade Kits! These kits give you a discount on a new coil, handle, housing and rubies while allowing you to keep using your current PID controller and suet jade porcelain stand. Please note bowls are not included, we've included compatibility links below for your reference.
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 pre-stretched 20mm heater coil in a SS316 Stainless Steel housing 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.
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:
Suggested Starting Temp: 500 f
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. Not interested in assembly? Reach out and we're happy to put it together for you before shipping (not available on quartz housings).
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 stainless steel scoop to loosely pile your herbal material in the Adapter Bowl. Once at temperature, simply place the Staroma Lite 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 Taroma Lite. 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.
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.
