Maybe you would like to buy your first dab pen? Or want an upgrade? Maybe your trusty wax vaporizer has just died and you need to replace it? Or one for each occasion, why not? Whatever your reasons, welcome! This guide is meant to provide you with lots of information about how to make the best choice of dab pen.
WHAT IS A DAB PEN?
The name ‘dab pen' refers to a small portable vaporizers that is made especially for vaping concentrates. They are typically small and very portable, exactly like the usual vape pens , except they're only compatible with different kinds of concentrates. These include:
In general, concentrate dab pens come with the perfect heat settings for dabbing or vaping concentrates. Since dabs usually require a much higher temperature to vaporize than dry herbs, dab pens run much hotter than regular vaporizers, making the entire experience pleasant and very efficient.
The difference between dab pens and regular vaporizers is that they're usually much smaller than most vaporizers because the whole point of a dab pen is to be small, portable, and very discreet.
There are many vaporizers that are compatible with both dry herb and concentrates or dabs, but a vast majority of them are either good to use with dry herb or with concentrates, and very rarely do you find a vaporizer that can seamlessly do both well.
That's why a dab pen is the best option for those of you looking to vape concentrates and dabs and still have an amazing experience.
One of the best things about a dab pen is that they produce some of the tastiest vapor of all vaporizers. Why? Concentrates or dabs are usually tastier than regular dry herbs because they have a higher concentration of terpenes and goodies, and that reflects in the vapor.
HOW TO USE A DAB PEN
Using a dab pen is pretty simple across the board, but it can change from pen to pen. So the basics are:
- Load the vaporizer with your dab
- Choose your temperature, and allow the vaporizer to heat up
- Pull directly from the dab pen
- Enjoy the session!
Of course, some dab pens get a little fancier than that when it comes to mechanics, but the overall basic steps that you'll have to take are in the list above. However, since there are different ways to use dab pens, you should always read up on the user manual that comes with your dab pen unit.
HOW TO CHOOSE A DAB PEN
Choosing a dab pen is quite simple. Look for one that meets all your needs and preferences. Yes, it sounds way too straightforward, but it really is that simple. However, we do have a lot of experience with concentrate vaporizers, so here are a couple of pointers we keep in mind when choosing a dab pen:
- You'll find that there are convection, conduction, and hybrid heating styles when it comes to dab pens. Take your time to read about the differences, and choose your dab pen with them in mind.
- Take the amount of concentrates you can dab with the pen into consideration. Some of them have small ovens for quick personal sessions, and others have a larger oven to give you longer, fuller sessions.
- Look for dab pens made by high quality and reputable brands to make sure you'll get the best of the best, and have a good experience.
- If you're looking for a discreet unit, get one that's small and easy to conceal, but that's also equipped with a stealth mode or that doesn't produce as much vapor.
- There are many different designs and models, so take your time to see your options to make sure you get exactly what you want.
What are the Differences between Dab Pens?
To show you the differences, we are going to take a few dab pens available on the Herbalize Store and make a comparison. Each of these pens features unique aspects that appeal to different users, so make sure you investigate thoroughly.
For under $100, you can pick one of these mini marvels up from the Herbalize Store. It is a remarkable invention. It is not much wider than a real pen and about the length of a chopstick. Even though it is feather-light and supermodel thin, it packs a serious punch.
Dr Dabber Stella: With this device, you get a titanium heating chamber for your dab. Pop a little in there with the provided dab tool, set your desired temperature from a range of presets, suck back a lungful and enjoy. It really is that simple. You can pre-load it for sly use on the go or load it up at home whenever you want to blast off. The Glass Mouthpiece add-on is both sleek looking and gives a nice feel to the session.
The really cool thing about this tiny Dr Dabber is that the quality of the vape is very high. Often small dab pens sacrifice quality for size: not so here. It is something to do with their titanium construction, it lets the device get up to the proper temperature in the chamber without heating the rest of the pen up to finger burning temperatures. This means you get a great hit that previously only a larger dab pen could have delivered while staying safe and discreet.
Yocan Evolve Vaporizer
This is an even cheaper wax vaporizer pen but it has some remarkable technology in it. For under $40, you can pick up the Yocan Evolve with a dual quartz coil atomizer, secret compartment for your dab, and a quality vape.
It is bigger than the Dr Dabber Light but it features a powerful 1100mAh battery, USB charging, and a larger vaping chamber. Discreet enough to be seen as just another ecig but powerful enough to give you a few sessions when you are out of the house, it is a fantastic compromise between price, capability, and power.
Boundless Terp Pen XL
The Boundless Terp Pen XL is one of the best dab pens on the market. It features a powerful battery that can last up to two hours of continuous use, and it has a large capacity tank that holds up to 1.5ml of concentrate. The pen also comes with three temperature settings so you can customize your experience depending on the type of concentrate you’re using.
What is Variable Voltage?
If you have taken a good look around the Herbalize Store, you will probably have noticed “variable voltage” as a selling point. Heating elements are powered by electricity being pushed through them. When you change the voltage, you change how much electricity is being pushed through, so if you turn it up, you get a hotter heating chamber.
Although manufacturers could just refer to it as a temperature control, it is a nice relic of the early dab rigs that you had to adjust the voltage on and try correlate it to a temperature or effect. Dab rigs and pens get much hotter than dry herb vapes, so it makes sense to have a different scale.
What Does 510 Thread Mean?
You might see this term on a lot of different dab pens, but what does it mean? In short, it means there are 10 threads that are 0.5mm apart that make up the screw on the battery in your vape. It is just a commonly used standard for batteries and tanks in vaporizers. There is nothing special about it, no matter what they tell you!
Dab Rig vs Dab Pen
There are a few significant differences between dab rigs and dab pens, but the most notable difference is that most dab rigs aren't ‘vaporizers', as they do require the need of flame such as a torch or a high power lighter.
They're usually quite similar to bongs, except they're equipped with special features that make dabbing much easier than it would be with a traditional bong.
Not to mention, dab rigs are typically much larger than most vaporizers, and basically the opposite of a dab pen in that sense.
However, there are dab rigs that are vaporizers, such as the Puffco Peak Pro,which are also designed to be used with concentrates. These are fully electronic, and don't require the use of a torch or a lighter because their heat source is the electricity.
Which is better?
Well, they're both strong for different reasons. The dab pen is much easier to use, transport, and is made to be used on-the-go. The dab rig is big, powerful, and made to cool down the dabs before they reach your lungs.
Dab Pen vs Cart Pen
When it comes to vaping concentrates, there are two main types of pens that are available: dab pens and cart pens. Both offer a convenient way to enjoy your favorite concentrates, but they each have their own unique advantages and disadvantages.
Dab pens are the most popular type of pen for vaping concentrates when it comes to vapor quality. They are designed specifically for use with waxes, oils, and other concentrates. They typically feature a heating element that is powered by a rechargeable battery, and they come in a variety of sizes and styles. Dab pens are great for those who want to enjoy get tasting concentrates on the go, as they are small and discreet.
Cart pens, on the other hand, are designed specifically for use with pre-filled cartridges. These vape pen batteries usually feature an adjustable voltage setting, allowing you to customize your vaping experience.
Cart pens are the perfect choice for those looking for a discreet and convenient way to enjoy their favorite prefilled cartridges. These pens feature a sleek, compact design that makes them easy to carry around and use on the go. They also come with adjustable voltage settings, allowing you to customize your vaping experience.
Cart pens are designed to be compatible with most prefilled cartridges on the market, making them a great choice for those who want to enjoy their favorite concentrates without having to worry about compatibility issues.
No matter what type of dab pen you choose, you can be sure that it will provide you with an enjoyable and convenient way to enjoy your favorite concentrates. Dab pens are perfect for those who want to enjoy flavorful and potent concentrates on the go, while cart pens aka vape pen battery are great for those who want to enjoy their favorite prefilled cartridges in a discreet and convenient way. Both types of pens offer a unique vaping experience, so it's important to choose the one that best suits your needs.
Best Dab Pen Coil Types
When it comes to dab pens, the type of coil you choose can make a big difference in your vaping experience. There are several different types of wax coils available for dab pens, each with its own unique advantages and disadvantages.
The quartz coil design is the most popular type of dab pen coil, but there are other options available. Ceramic heating coils provide a smooth, flavorful vapor with minimal draw resistance. They are also very durable and can last for several months before needing to be replaced.
Silicone-based coils are another popular option for dab pens. They provide a smooth, flavorful vapor with minimal draw resistance and are very easy to clean and maintain.
No matter which type of coil you choose, it's important to make sure that it is compatible with your dab pen. Different types of coils require different wattage's and temperatures, so make sure to check the specifications of your device before purchasing a new wax coils.
How much is a Dab Pen?
The cost of a dab pen can depend on a variety of characteristics, such as the make, model and whether it is reusable or disposable. Generally, an entry-level device falls between $25 and $100, while high-end vapes may cost up to $200.
The price range of a disposable dab pen is between $5 and $40. The cost will vary depending on the model of dab pen you purchase.
