Best E-nails of 2020

KandyPens Oura

The Oura is a high-end, easy to maintain portable dab rig that produces terrific vapor quality and offers the choice of Ceramic or Quartz atomizers. It has four preset temperature levels, with the top one being 800°F. It is well-designed and small enough to operate with just one hand. The Oura is a premium vape that will change the way you dab & the lifetime warranty makes an already good thing even better.

Dr Dabber Switch

The Dr. Dabber Switch is a revolution in vaping technology because of its use of induction heating, and it’s dual compatibility (Extracts + Dry Herb). It heats up almost instantly and produces tasty vapor. The Battery lasts over 100 uses per charge, and it has 25 preset heating profiles for specific substances. Yeah, it might be too big or expensive for some, but if you’re a home vaper that can afford it, you definitely won’t be disappointed.

Puffco Peak Pro

If you are still using an old school rig and torch, ditch it. The Peak Pro is the latest reason to do so. At $400, the Peak Pro one of the more expensive eRigs out there, but it is also one of the best. The real-time temp control keeps a precise temp at the bowl, a game-changer in terms of efficiency and vapor quality. The Pro can be used as a point-and-shoot device by a total beginner, but it’s also powerful and smart enough to satisfy experienced users.

Vista Mini 2

The Mini 2 is a portable eRig compatible with concentrates and oils that delivers impressive performance for its excellent price – $159. It features wireless charging, four preset temperature levels, and a unique design with a clear carb cap. The Vista is a functional device and the vapor quality is satisfying for most average or entry-level users. Awesome value on this one.

G-Pen Roam

The G Pen Roam is a portable concentrate vaporizer that features a unique self-contained water filtration tube that results in cool & pure vapor. This is an unusual feature in any portable vaporizer but is especially interesting in a wax vape. A lot of thought and creativity went into designing and engineering this vape. The Roam is a dab rig packed into a vape that can fit in your palm.

G-Pen Connect

The Connect is an e-Nail that can attach to any traditional bad rig, and eliminate the need to use a torch or the danger of having an exposed nail. Once connected, it allows precise calibration and customization of your sessions. All connections are magnetic, it uses a ceramic heating element, and it has three preset temperature levels. If you already own a Rig, and are looking to convert it to electric, the Connect is the way to go.

Focus Carta Vape Rig

I’ve enjoyed all the portable dab rigs I’ve tried so far and the Focus V Carta is no exception. It has the superfast heat time and great flavor I expected. But it goes a few steps further and adds a smartphone app and removable batteries. But, possibly best of all, is the fact that it costs less than the competition.

Pulsar RöK

The RöK is a uniquely-designed versatile dab rig that can vape both wax and dry herb. It has an inverted design which means the water bubbler is used as a base and features a disc percolator that further filters the vapor. It also has 3 temp settings that range from 680-850°F and features a sesh mode which some vapers might find useful.

e-Nails / Dab Rigs Buying Guide

What are e-Nails / Dab Rigs?

E-nails, aka e-rigs or dab rigs, started out as a simpler way of using traditional dab rigs, where the user employs a blow torch to heat up and vaporize the wax. This is hardly convenient, and so e-nails were invented as an easier way to vape wax at high temperatures. E-nails use electricity instead of a flame to heat up and vaporize the wax, they also have a water bubbler to help cool down the vapor because the wax is vaporized at very high temperatures. Every dab rig consists of the following parts:

The Body – This holds the battery and supports the other components of the e-nail.

The Heating Element – As you can guess, this is used to heat up the wax.

The Nail – This is where the wax is placed, and it can be made from various different materials.

The Mouthpiece – All dab rig mouthpieces have a water bubbler attachment. This is necessary to cool down the hot vapor created by the heating element.

All of those components mean that e-rigs are far less portable than vape pens. The kit of many e-rigs usually includes some kind of carrying case that makes storage and transport a little easier. Nonetheless, the assembly involved means that e-nails are mainly stay-at-home devices.

Things to consider when buying an e-Nail

1. Advanced use

E-nails are not meant for beginner wax vapers for many reasons. For one, they produce very intense vapor, which might be too much for newbie vapers to handle. They are also more complex to use than vape pens since they consist of several different components that require some assembly. Portable dab rigs are less complex than e-nails but are still not suited for beginners. New wax vapers are better off starting with vape pens since they are the easiest wax devices to use.

2. E-Nails VS traditional Nails

E-nails have a lot of advantages over traditional nails, the main one being that they are easier to use since everything you need to vape is included in their kit. Traditional nails require the use of a blowtorch to heat the nail and vaporize the wax. E-nails also allow you to more precisely calibrate the temperature, which is something that isn’t possible with a blowtorch. E-nails also take up less space than a rig and torch setup. The only real advantage traditional nails have is that the blowtorch allows them to reach higher maximum temperatures than e-nails. However, that is only an advantage for hardcore users who like really intense vapor.

3. Size & Portability

Both e-nails and portable dab rigs aren’t exactly portable. It’s not just their size that limits portability, it is also the fact that they consist of several different components that need to be assembled. Plus you need water to fill the bubbler. All of those factors prevent them from being travel-friendly devices.

4. Portable Dab Rig VS Nail only Devices

One alternative to both e-nails/portable dab rigs and traditional nails is the electronic nail device. These are devices that consist of a battery powered nail that can be attached to traditional rigs. There is no need for a blowtorch since electricity is used to heat up the wax. These devices are good for those who already own a rig but want an easier, more convenient way to use it. They are not suited for anyone who does not already have a dab rig because of the expense of purchasing both a rig and the device.

5. Nail Types

There are three different coil types available for e-nails, they are titanium, quartz, and ceramic. Some e-nails will include all three types of nail in their kit, while others will have one or two. The differences among the three of them are as follows.

Ceramic – They heat up slowly but retain heat well. The flavor they produce is very good because ceramic is a neutral material that keeps the flavor pure.

Quartz – Quartz is also a neutral material that keeps the flavor pure. It also heats up quickly, but it loses heat more quickly than the other materials.

Titanium – These nails heat up fast and have high-temperature retention but the vapor quality is lacking compared to the other nails. That is because titanium can leave a metallic aftertaste to the vapor.

You can buy them at online head shops and dispensaries in states where marijuana has been legalized.

The small amount of wax that is placed in the nail is called a dab, so dabbing is the act of placing the dab into the nail. However, many people use the term as a shorthand for using a dab rig, e-nail, or portable dab rig in general.

There are low temperature dabs, medium temp dabs, and high temp dabs. The one you choose depends on the effect you want to feel when you vape and your level of experience.

Low temperature dab (315°F – 450°F) – You get a lot of flavor at this temperature, but the vapor is not that dense, and it takes longer to feel the effects of the THC. Hits in this temperature range are smooth and easy on the lungs, making it the ideal range for beginners.

Medium temperature dab (450°F – 600°F) – This temperature range gives vapers a good balance of flavor and intensity, though it offers less of either quality than the more extreme ranges. This is good for intermediate users.

High temperature dab (600°F – 900°F) – This range is all about intensity. The vapor is hot and harsh even with the water bubbler to cool it down. Plus the effects of the THC come on much faster, though the flavor is the weakest at this range.

Using an e-nail is easy since they all share the same general design. First you pour some water into the bubbler, then you place a dab into the nail. Next you turn on the power and select a temperature. Once it reaches the selected temperature, place the carb cap over the nail and inhale from the bubbler.

They are the most intense way to vape wax and they tend to offer a lot more customization than vape pens do. However, they are not very portable and take a while to set up. So, the answer comes down to what you want from a wax vaporizer, the portability and convenience of vape pens, or the customization and intensity of e-nails.

It comes down to personal preference, but most people prefer quartz or ceramic nails because they do not affect the flavor of the vapor. Titanium nails tend to leave a metallic aftertaste that most vapers find unpleasant.

You can, but that is not advised. Most e-nails can heat the wax to 600° and higher, which means that the vapor produced is extremely hot. The water is needed to cool the vapor down otherwise it would be uncomfortable and unpalatable for users.

It depends on what you want when you vape. If you want more customization options, then traditional e-nails are the better choice. If you prefer convenience and ease of use, then portable dab rigs are the more appropriate choice for you.

Using an old school rig and torches is the "old" was of dabbing, here is my list of the best enail of 2020 to get you dabbing like a pro.

The Best All-in-One Electronic Dab Rigs on 2019

Posted by Jack Daniels (Edited by Jay Dreadhead) on 23rd Jan 2020

As 2019 drew to a close, so too did another decade and what a decade it was as the evolution of vaping cannabis concentrates, extracts, and oils continued to progress. Not only have the flavor and effects of these oils reached an all-time high, but the methods and devices that we have used to dab or vape our terps have gone from darn near caveman techniques to space-age technology all in the past ten years.

There is no better example of the results of this rapid innovation than the all in one electronic portable dab rig. The all-in-one dab rig is – by our definition – a portable, wireless, battery-operated, water-diffused device that allows the user to “dab” their own wax or oil directly onto a self-heated surface. These devices are meant to emulate the full-scale dabbing experience but without the awkwardness of the torch or Kevlar cords when you are on the move. If you have been considering treating yourself or someone you love to one of these hot new pieces of hardware but are unsure of which one to buy, The Dab Lab has compiled a list of the Top 5 All in One Electronic Dab Rigs of 2019 which should help you decide.

5. Pulsar RoK – As the newest entry into the competitive battle between Puffco and Focus V, the RoK from Pulsar offers an alternative, but not any new or innovative features. Its design is more reminiscent of a traditional dab rig or bubbler which some may find more aesthetically appealing, while others may knock for its added lack of discretion. We do like the showerhead perc and the impressive level of diffusion it creates in the borosilicate base, and it is more traditional to see that water chamber below the heating element, rather than above it as it is on competing models. The all-metal body above that glass chamber also feels well-crafted in the hand. Vapor flows directly from the water chamber into the mouthpiece, and into your lungs without ever crossing over electrical components or substandard enclosure materials. You can swap out the downstem for a variety of colors and different percolator options and that’s definitely cool. With just 3 temperature settings, advanced users may find the RoK too simplistic, while those new to this form of consumption may appreciate the ease of use.

4. Dr. Dabber Boost – The Boost certainly gets some points for originality, as it was among the first mainstream designs to truly replicate the dabbing experience with a handheld, battery-powered, water-filtered device. Compared to today’s more popular models like the Puffco Peak and the Focus V Carta, the Boost leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to user options, but that in itself can be an important point to consider. The Boost is so simple to use, even for those totally new to vaporizing waxes or oils. With a rapid heat up time of just 30 seconds, you can expect to get 40-50 full-flavored hits off a single charge of the lithium ion battery. Unlike most vape pens, the Boost uses no wicks or coils as a heating element, instead offering both titanium and quartz surfaces for ideal flavor and a thorough vaporization.

3. Sutra DBR – The “DBR” features more of a crossover design between a vape pen and a dab rig with a much more slender profile than today’s more popular designs. Don’t get it twisted, though, this handheld portable all in one e-nail RIPS! Not only does the DBR come equipped out of the box with a finely crafted borosilicate glass recycler attachment, it also offers four different heating surfaces to help you decide which is best for your preferred flavor and effects. Choose from titanium, ceramic, quartz, or silicon carbide and experience an explosion of terps across your tastebuds! At just six inches tall and boasting a heat up time of just 30 seconds, the DBR is perfect for dabs on the downlow and ultimate discretion. The surprisingly useful level of interactivity between user and device along with the sweet price point make the Sutra DBR a perfect stocking stuffer for the discerning dabber in your life.

2. Puffco Peak – The Peak is the most commonly known example of this category of vaporizing product, though it was hardly the first of its kind, and its reputation is not all positive. There is no doubt that the Puffco Peak changed the game when it came to all-in-one electronic dab rigs, not only by advancing the technology, but by inspiring popular glass artists to create new, headier glass attachments so that users can now truly customize their Peak to match their personality. Still, the fail rate of the atomizers on the units cannot be overlooked and mixed reports of the quality of their customer service have plagued the brand this year. The lone, non-removable battery is reason enough to knock the Peak into 2 nd Place, and the comparative lack of user controls seals the deal.

1. Focus V Carta – That’s right… the Puffco Peak is not in the #1 slot because the Focus V Carta came along just long enough after the Peak that its developers could implement some of the key features that Puffco failed to include with their product. We did an in-depth breakdown which you can read HERE, but the key advantages that the Carta carries over the Peak, in our opinion, come down to lower cost of the unit and its accessories as well as a deeper, more intuitive and user friendly interface. Much like the Peak, the Carta is always in high demand and can be hard to find in stock from a reputable retailer, but you know The Dab Lab has your back! Add a few accessories to bump your order over $300 and we’ll ship it all to you for FREE!

Honorable Mention: The G Pen Connect – Although it is not truly an “all in one” electronic dab rig, the Connect from G Pen and Grenco Science has been a popular product this year and its unique design is worthy of a mention here. For starters, you need to already have your own dab rig, bubbler, or bong with a female glass on glass joint in either 10mm, 14mm, or 18mm. The G Pen Connect serves basically as a battery-powered banger for your waxes and oils by sliding seamlessly into the joint of your favorite functional glass piece. Leave the torch on the shelf and watch as the Connect heats up in a mindboggling FIVE SECONDS! While this may not work for those of you slamming full gram globs on your nail, the G Pen Connect is perfect for smaller portions and BIG vapor!

There you have it, folks, our all-in-one rundown of the Top 5 All in One Dab Rigs of 2019 is complete (+1!). The Dab Lab is your best source for legit, authentic, warrantied versions of most of the products described here and we’re always available in the event that you still have more questions to help you decide what may be best for your situation.
