How To Use

The Seahorse Max dab Pen is the latest generation of dab devices in the Lookah Seahorse range. Like the Seahorse and Seahorse Pro, it can be used with quartz or ceramic tips. More on the difference between these coils later. 

1. Before you start dabbing with the Seahorse Max, add a small amount of water to the Max Glass, just enough to cover the percolation holes. 

To start dabbing with the Seahorse Max, you first need to turn the device on. 

2. Remove the tip cover, and then press the power button five (5) times in quick succession within 2 seconds to turn the device on. 

Once the dab pen is on, you can select the temperature level. 

There are three temperatures to chose from low, medium, or high—each with a different color light to identify it.

3. To cycle through the three temperature modes press the power button two (2) times within 0.8 seconds.

Low 3.2V (blue), medium 3.6V (purple), and high 4.1V (white)

The higher the temperature, the more vapor will be produced, but also the more likely you are to lose some of the flavors as the terpenes. 

Manual Mode

1. Once the temperature has been selected, press and hold the power button to use the device. When the tip of the coil is hot, bring it into contact with the concentrate. A 45-degree angle between the tip and the concentrate is advisable. Please don't press the tip of the coil against a hard surface or concentrate as this can damage it. You can press and hold the power button to dab for up to 20 seconds in one go. 

Note: Please hold the button for 3 to 5 seconds for the coil to heat up before taking the first hit of a session.

Auto Mode

The auto mode heats the coil to the set temperature and keeps it there for up to 30 seconds of dabbing. 

1. Start the auto mode by pressing the power button three (3) times within 1.5 seconds. 

2. In auto mode, the device will preheat for up to 15 seconds with the indicator light flashing. 

3. Once the set temperature has been reached, the light will stop flashing, and the tip temperature will be maintained for 30 seconds. 

4. Bring the hot tip of the coil into contact with the concentrate to start dabbing. A 45-degree angle between the tip and the concentrate is advisable.

1. To exit the auto mode, press the power button three (3) times within 1.5 seconds. The device will return to standby mode. 

How to clean the Seahorse Max.

How to clean the coil.

To clean the coil, remove the tip cover and then turn on the Seahorse Max. Select the highest temperature setting. 

Run the auto mode in the highest temperature setting 2 to 3 times. This will heat up the tip of the coil and burn off much of the remaining residue. 

How to clean the base unit.

The Seahorse Max comes with a cleaning brush. To clean the base, remove the seahorse max glass. Unscrew and remove the seahorse max coil tip. 

Apply a little alcohol cleaner to the brush and insert it through the airway. Twist the brush to loosen and remove any concentrate buildup in the airway. 

How to clean the glass.

The Seahorse Max glass is the same as the glass on the Unicorn E-rig and can be cleaned in the same way. 

The Seahorse glass can be cleaned like any other glass percolator.  

1. Remove the glass top from the base of the unit. 

2. Remove the glass from the magnetic ring.

3. With your hand, cover the holes at the bottom of the percolator.

4. Add a little isopropyl alcohol and coarse salt into the percolator through the hole at the top. 

5. Cover the top of the percolator and shake well for 5 - 10 minutes.

6. If there is hard to remove residue, you can soak the percolator in hot water or isopropyl alcohol. 

7. Pour out the salt and isopropyl alcohol.

8. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. 

Difference Between the Lookah Seahorse Max Coils

The Seahorse Max uses the same coils as the Seahorse and Seahorse Pro. There are two seahorse coils or tips to choose from: quartz and ceramic. Both types of coils seahorse coils are available from the Lookah webpage; you may also find them sold in smoke shops and by online resellers.

The quartz coils are porous and tend to offer the best flavor; however because they are porous, they can be easy do damage, especially if you press down on them with any force. It's best to use the edge of the tip to gently dab into the concentrate or to use a dab tool to apply a little concentrate to the hot tip. 


The ceramic tips have two ceramic cylinders parallel on the end of the tip; these heat up faster than the quartz coils and tend to be more robust, however sometimes, due to their fast heating, they don't let the flavor through as well as the quartz.
