What is Evoke?
Evoke is the first of its kind: a handheld vaporizer that uses induction to vape your favorite material, whether that is eLiquid, Concentrates or Dry Herb. Evoke features an onboard microprocessor that communicates with your smartphone via Bluetooth in order to customize heat settings and monitor battery life.
What is Induction, and Why is it Cool?
Induction heating is a method of creating heat via magnetic fields. Evoke is the first vaporizer to use induction as a method of heating, although stoves, welding rigs, and other industrial applications have been around for years.
Induction works by passing alternating current through a copper coil, creating a magnetic field. The Evoke vaporizer uses this magnetic field to heat a special metal wick, which vaporizes material. Using induction this way gives the Evoke advantages in versatility, durability, precision and practicality.
The Induction Core:
Evoke’s Induction Core contains a copper coil which creates a magnetic field. Evoke has three different available Induction Cores: eLiquid, Concentrates and Dry Herb.
The different induction cores can be changed for one of a different size, giving Evoke the ability to vape all three materials.
Our research has shown induction cores can be optimized for different materials by changing the coil’s inductance. The original vision for Evoke called for three separate units. Eight months of development has enabled us to create a truly versatile product by integrating a swappable core system.
The copper coil in Evokes induction core is not the heating element and is never in contact with the vaping material. Unlike the traditional wick and coil system used in most vaporizers, our coil will never wear and break from the stress of repeated heating.
The heating element in Evoke is the wick itself!
Evoke’s metal wick is not electrically or mechanically attached to the vaporizer. The user can quickly swap out a wick and capsule for one of a different flavor.
Evoke’s metal wick is heated evenly by the magnetic field created by the Induction Core, making more precise temperature possible. No hotspots are created, and by adjusting the power settings Evoke can be tailored to your preferred vaping temperature.
Evoke’s metal wick is, again, not attached to the vaporizer, so it is easy to change it for one of a different size or configuration.
The Evoke’s metal wick is robust and reusable, and can easily be pulled out and cleaned.
We’re excited for people to try using the induction-powered Evoke to vape. We love it and think that it really adds a lot of awesome possibilities to vaping.
Evoke contains an onboard microprocessor. This chipset controls the heat settings, which are adjustable with the Evoke multi-function LED button. The microprocessor also communicates via Bluetooth with your smartphone, so you can customize heat settings and monitor battery life.
Evoke is made from premium materials because we are committed to developing the best possible vaping experience. We built Evoke using medical grade materials that we trust: aerospace grade aluminum, glass, silicon and ceramic. These materials have a tactile feel, and ensure that the Evoke will not off-gas, degrade, or have questionable materials in the vapor path. The dynamic shape of the Evoke is ergonomic and sleek. It feels great in your hand and looks elegant (some would even say damn sexy!) sitting on your coffee table or desk.
A better battery:
The user can access Evoke’s battery by removing the magnetically attached battery cover. We chose a Lithium Ion Phosphate battery, because it is more environmentally friendly than Lithium Ion batteries (which contains cobalt), has a longer cycle life, and will not ignite if punctured.

Why We Need Your Help
After our successful Indiegogo Campaign, we’ve spend the past eight months furiously designing, testing and refining a working prototype of Evoke. Now it’s time to get across the finish line and begin mass production, but we need your help to get there. Our first run is going to be for 5,000 units. 2,500 of these units are already promised to our original Indiegogo supporters. We want to make sure our very first supporters, receive the very first Evokes off the line.
Through InDemand, we will be offering a unique chance to purchase one of the remaining 2,500 units in our exclusive initial production run. We are offering Evoke’s for a one-time exclusive discounted price of $299. Our final, retail price for Evoke will be upwards of $400.
As a receiver of this initial batch, you will get the chance to be one of the very first people to use and provide feedback on this new technology application. We believe our users will find a myriad of different ways to ‘hack’ and modify Evokes wick to provide infinite usage ideas.
We are in the final throes of testing and making design adjustments to the prototype and are nearly ready to begin tooling for mass production. Evoke will be a reality, but with the strength and support of the Indiegogo and Vape communities, we can get there even quicker.
The Loto Labs Team
Loto Labs was created with the simple goal of creating the best vaporizer possible. We formed our company in Redwood City, CA, where all of us met through our love of recreational ice hockey. From there, we discovered that none of us were happy with the vaporizers we used. We realized that all four of us had lots of experience in different fields that when put together would create an ideal company to make the best possible product.
