Beaker Base Bongs
Useful information about Beaker Base Bongs
Sometimes called ‘Scientific Glass Bongs’ because they look very similar to the Glass Flasks that you see in a laboratory. Beaker base bongs have a long narrow neck that leads down to a wide base with a flared pyramid shape.
We have beaker bongs for all types of cannabis smokers. It doesn’t matter if you are a first-time beaker bong buyer, or someone who has years of bong smoking experience. Our beaker water pipes are true classics, with clean lines and our signature Molino Logo engraved down the neck, available in a variety of bold colors.
Glass Beaker Bongs have extra volume in the bottom chamber which means they can hold more water to cool your smoke, they can also hold more smoke. Beaker Bongs are also very stable compared to a regular cylinder bong. You can even rest one on your lap if you are too stoned to put the bong back on the table.
All of our Glass Beaker Bongs use thick glass ranging from 5 mm up to our thickest 9 mm borosilicate glass for extra strength. You’ll also love the classic symmetry of our Beaker Bongs, not only do they provide a great smoking experience but they look stylish. Each piece in our catalog has been hand-selected and tested to ensure your satisfaction, no matter which of our beaker bongs you choose.
Because of their wide base and low center of gravity, Beaker bongs are much less likely to fall over than a regular Cylinder Bong. This is especially important if you want to add an ashcatcher to your bong as the extra weight added to the front of a Straight Tube Bong can make it unstable and more likely to fall over.
Another benefit of beaker bongs is that as the base narrows towards the neck, water is less likely to splash up into your mouth. Molino Glass Beaker Bongs also features an Ice Catcher in the neck of the bong. If you put ice in the neck this will not only cool the smoke, but also stop bong water splashing up to the mouthpiece.
Because of the larger capacity of the Beaker Bong’s chamber, a glass beaker bong can hold a lot of smoke, which means you can get a nice big hit.
So the main reasons a Glass Beaker Bong is better than a Straight Tube Bong is stability and the amount of smoke you can get in each hit.
Aside from the different shape of the beaker bong’s body, beaker bongs also come in different sizes. The size difference will mostly just be how tall the bong is but sometime also how wide the bong base is. The standard height of a Molino Glass Beaker Bong is 15-20 inches tall (40-50 cm) and they typically have a main tube diameter of around 2 inches (5 cm). Of course there are many size variation and we offer both tall bongs and short bongs, we even have smaller bongs that are called Mini Bongs, whatever size you want we probably have something you’ll like.
Another thing that can vary from one beaker bong to another is the thickness of the glass used to make the bong. The thickness of the glass does not affect a bongs performance, but thicker glass is much stronger and a bong made from thick glass will be more stable, especially a beaker bong. Our glass beaker bongs come in three main thicknesses 5 mm, 7 mm and 9 mm.
You have bought a nice new Glass Beaker Bong, but you’re not sure how much water you should put in before you smoke from it. Don’t worry, this is a very simple question to answer: Fill your Beaker Bong with water so that the bottom end of the downstem and it’s diffuser slits are fully submerged under the water, they should be about half an inch or so below the water line.
For simple beaker bongs that only have a downstem, the process of adding water is very easy. There are actually two ways you can fill the bong with water. The first way is to pour water into the mouthpiece at the top of your bong and let it flow down into the base, or you can take out the downstem and pour water in through the stem. Whichever way you fill your bong, make sure you don’t overfill it.
The prices of our Beaker Bongs depends on the thickness of the glass and the size of the Beaker Bong.
