Why Wax Pen Vaporizers?
Apart from being affordable alternatives and being a portable option for wax concentrate consumption, wax pen vaporizers can be an efficient and effective way of vaping your favorite concentrates. Most wax pen vaporizers on our collection are highly durable and are extremely reliable. We carry top-tier brands like Puffco and KandyPens, brands that are known for their durability and reliability. While these vaporizers are notable examples of high-quality devices, they also are perfect models of how stylish and sophisticated wax pen vaporizers can be.
They’re also a cost-effective means of wax concentrate consumption since wax pen vaporizers use batteries that power atomizers which make for an efficient method of vaporizing concentrates. Compared to dabbing concentrates with a butane-based lighter -- which inefficiently burns your materials, wax pen vaporizes are good for low and slow heating allowing you to savor your select concentrates and make the most out of your materials. This also means your concentrates are heated effectively without reaching the point of combustion which makes for a safer vaping experience.
How It Works
Most wax pen vaporizers are made up of three essential components. The battery, the atomizer, and the mouthpiece. Vape pen batteries are the primary power source of wax pen vaporizers and are normally rechargeable batteries which makes them a reusable and renewable power supply. They can be charged via USB chargers though some would come with wall adapters and even car chargers which allows you to charge your vape pen batteries virtually almost anywhere you are.
Atomizers are generally the heating elements of wax pen vaporizers. Different wax pen vaporizers feature different types of technology that is designed to match the battery and the mouthpiece. While other vaporizers feature interchangeable parts we recommend that you use the suggested specifications set by the manufacturers to get optimum results.
Here’s a quick look at the different kinds of atomizers you’ll find on some of our top-shelf wax pen vaporizers.
Quartz Rod Atomizers -- Quartz rod atomizers are known for providing its users with the purest and cleanest vapors in the market. Quartz by nature is pure, so it does not affect the quality of the concentrates and allows one to experience wax in its natural form. Apart from being pure, wax is known for being an inert component. Probably one of its most important aspect and attribute, wax will not chemically react to heat making it the perfect conduit for vaporization. In addition to its remarkable set of qualities, quartz is better known for easily absorbing heat giving users instantaneous, almost on-demand heating.
Ceramic Rod Atomizers -- Ceramic rods share the similar inert attributes with quartz rod atomizers though they are most known for their ability to resist and hold heat far longer than quartz components. Because of this unique characteristic, ceramic rod atomizers are preferred by most wax consumers because it can perfectly handle low-temperature dabs which greatly emphasizes and improves the flavor and smoothness of your wax concentrates. In addition, ceramic is porous in nature so it can easily absorb your liquefied wax concentrates while slowly vaporizing it.
Mouthpieces are an essential component to wax pen vaporizers. Surprisingly, wax pen vaporizer mouthpieces offer a variety of functions from airflow adjustment to offering users with an integrated dab tool. They play an integral role in your experience more than you can imagine. Some of the most notable wax pen mouthpieces are the mouthpieces from Puffco’s Puffco Plus and #ThisThingRips’ OG Series Gen 3 wax pen vaporizers. Puffco Plus’ “Dart” mouthpiece offers an integrated dab tool and makes a vortex-like path for the air to travel for cooler draws while the “VaporBlast” mouthpiece from the OG Series Gen 3 allows you to enjoy discreet yet powerful vapors in a forged and durable mouthpiece.
These components make for a simple and straightforward design allowing even vape rookies and newbies to use wax pen vaporizers like a pro.
Types Of Concentrates
While wax pen vaporizers eliminate the daunting task of vaping wax concentrates, knowing the materials themselves can be a little overwhelming. Wax concentrates are a product of blasting cannabis leaves or flowers with solvents like butane or ethanol. The process of extracting wax concentrates can be hazardous and is in no way recommended especially for beginners and while processing wax concentrates can be intimidating the overall experience of hitting on these concentrates are extremely rewarding.
Here are some of its popular varieties.
Shatter -- Shatters are concentrates that are produced using butane or CO2. It’s most notable physical characteristic is its honey-like consistency though it may sport various colors and transparency. Like most oily substances, shatters will harden when exposed to low temperatures. Once hardened they can be broken down to pieces hence the name, shatter.
Oil -- Oils, on the other hand, is extremely runny and will not be compatible with most wax pen vaporizers. The exact opposite of Shatter in terms of consistency. A word of caution, make sure you’re using a compatible device since some vaporizers will let runny substances leak and may damage the battery. In general, oils can be dabbed using the right vaporizer.
Budder -- To spot a budder look for the opaqueness of the wax concentrate as Budders are generally opaque because of its polycrystal components. They’re highly potent and will put you down for a good amount of time.
Earwax -- Legend has it that Earwax has a smoother and a much agreeable vapor believed to have been caused by the whisking and whipping hash oil. Generally, Earwaxes are favored by beginners because of their mild and mellow upshots.
