What is a dab pen?
A dab pen, also known as a concentrate vaporizer or wax pen, is a small device that is used for vaping concentrates or oils. They look very similar to standard vape pens, being compact and slick and looking like an actual pen or e-cigarette, but are more limited in the materials that it can be used with.
However, just because they’re less versatile than vape pens doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider them. If you prefer vaping wax or concentrate to dry herbs, then concentrate vaporizers are an ideal choice - they produce high-quality, great tasting vapour, and are small and discreet enough to take around with you wherever you go.
Are dab pens the same as wax pens?
Yes. While the terminology may be different, both dab pens and wax pens are essentially the same thing, and fall under the branch of concentrate vaporizers. These devices come in all shapes and sizes, and some may be called one or the other, but they all serve virtually the same functionality. The confusion may have arisen because while concentrate vapes were originally referred to as wax pens, ‘dabbing’ has since become a popular term, and wax pens have adopted this.
How to use a dab pen
Using a dab pen, like most types of vaporizer, is pretty straightforward. Whichever type of dab pen you have, you must:
First make sure your dab pen has sufficient charge. Most dab pens have a good battery life, but it’s good practice to charge it in between each use.
You can then pack your concentrate into the heating chamber, making sure not to pack it too tightly as to restrict any airflow. You will often have to remove the mouthpiece first to get to the heating chamber.
You can then set the temperature to your preferred level. Around 205°C tends to work best for most types of wax and concentrate.
Once your dab pen has reached your preferred temperature, simply put your lips to the mouthpiece and inhale to enjoy the full flavour of your vape.
Benefits of concentrate vapes and dab pens
There are many benefits of using concentrate vaporizers, dab pens, and wax pens over other types of vaporizer, and indeed traditional forms of smoking. Take a look at the pros and cons of concentrate vaporizers before deciding whether they’re the right type of product for you:
When searching the market for a dab pen or concentrate vaporizer, you’ll find so much choice on offer that it may be difficult figuring out which one to go for. However, there are some key criteria to look out for which can make a big difference to the quality of your product and your all-round vaping experience:
Decide whether you want a vape with convection heating or conduction heating methods, or even a hybrid.
Choose whether you want a smaller heating chamber for short, personal sessions, or a larger oven ideal for longer sessions.
Consider the overall size of the vaporizer. Smaller models are best for discretion.
Consider the reputation of the brand. We’d always suggest buying from a trusted manufacturer to ensure the longevity and safety of your device.
