Pulsar Rok vs Puffco Peak: Pulsar RoK Pros and Cons
The Pulsar RoK has all the features you would expect from a $250 e-rig but also has some cons that users have reported. It has three heat modes and the RöK Mode which maintains the temperature for 30 seconds allowing you to hit it continuously. The Pulsar RoK does allow you to smoke both flowers and concentrates but be warned as smoking flowers in it makes it very dirty / clogs the atomizer and will most definitely need a clean before smoking concentrates.
It does have some drawbacks like how the base is a glass chamber so it is the most vulnerable to breaking. Also, many users dislike how high up the chamber is compared to other e-rigs. The battery life is ok with some owners saying it is too short and with the micro USB charge it can take up to 3 hours to charge.

Puffco Peak Orignal:
The Peak Original is the predecessor of the Peak Pro. They look very much alike but the Pro is better in every way. The original still does the job but it is a much bare-bone device. With it being the first device it does have some defects and issues that were fixed in the Pro. Nothing that makes the device unusable but rather constant issues with the atomizer and temperatures. The temperature settings are better on the Pro, the bowl is bigger on the Pro, the atomizer is better designed on the Pro, and more.
The biggest things that attract users to the Puffco Peak original are the $150 price and the fact you can interchange the bowls on the insert on the original Peak letting you swap bowls in between sessions and easy to clean.
In the question of Pulsar Rok vs Puffco Peak, the clear answer is Puffco Peak Pro. While it is over $100 more than the Pulsar the features and build quality make a difference. The biggest difference between the Pulsar Rok vs Puffco Peak Pro is the battery life and temperature options. The Puffco Peak Pro offers more range in temperature and longer battery life for more hits. They both have their own design and user issues people have reported on but overall the Puffco is a better device.
If you are looking for a more barebones / cheaper product and don’t care for all the features the Puffco Pro offers then the Pulsar Rok is still a good buy. It does go pretty head to head with the Puffco Peak original but with the Puffco Peak original leaving store shelves as years go on it might be harder to get replacement parts in the next couple of years.
