Top Wax Pen Vaporizers For 2018
Concentrate consumption has gone a long way since it was first introduced to the general cannabis scene over a decade ago. Wax was originally used with a dab rig, a contraption that could complicate dabbing especially for beginners. You had to have supervision from an experienced user to set up and use traditional dab rigs. Using a blow torch to heat up titanium nails isn't exactly a walk in the park. Furthermore, dab rigs are so clunky, you'd have to be at home to use one.
Today, wax concentrates can be used in a variety of ways. I guess you could say that like how your old desktop computers evolved and grew smaller and more portable counterparts like laptops and smartphones, the conventional dab rig also experienced the same phase. From the Jurassic dab units, we began seeing more portable concentrate vaporizers and even smaller ones in the likes of wax pen vaporizers. I mean, why not? Wax pen vaporizers are easy to carry, highly concealable, and they cost way cheaper than dab rigs. They're also easier to use, unlike the butane-fueled heating methods a dab rig would require. They're safer and a lot friendlier to beginners allowing newcomers to enjoy the same exact experience one would get from a dab rig.
We'll be listing down some of the hottest wax pen vaporizers for 2018. Our list includes some of the most innovative vaporizers that feature the latest, cutting-edge design and technology. We'll also include a few personal favorites so be sure to read on.
1. Puffco Plus
First on our list is the Puffco Plus vaporizer. The Puffco Plus is regarded as one of the best vaporizers for recreational and medical consumption. Unlike the traditional wax pen vaporizer, the Puffco Plus is made only with purity in mind. These vaporizers are manufactured with medical and food-grade components to ensure that the Puffco Plus will produce no toxic by-products making it one of the safest choice for both recreational cannabis consumers and medicating patients.
The Puffco Plus vaporizer features a coil-less ceramic bowl which enhances both the flavor and the taste of your select wax concentrates. Apart from effectively preserving your materials' aroma and potency, the coil-less atomizers also work well in efficiently heating your favorite wax. It evenly heats your materials and because the heating element does not have any coils, it leaves no room for material buildup. You'll be sure that all your wax concentrates are heated to the very last drop.
2. Linx Hypnos
Now, if you're looking for a small yet durable wax pen vaporizer, then you should be looking the Linx Hypnos. The Linx Hypnos measures only at about 10cm long and yet it boasts a heavy-duty outer shell that's made out of high-grade stainless steel. The strong housing protects the Linx Hypnos from your everyday wear and tear as well as your minor dents and scratches you'd get when using the average wax pen vaporizer. Moreover, the Linx Hypnos is as functional as it is hard-wearing. You'd be surprised to find a wax pen vaporizer this small sports 4 temperature profiles that are perfect for low-temp dabs. Like the Puffco Plus atomizer, the Linx Hypnos uses a ceramic-based material to heat up your concentrates. However, instead of having a coil-less atomizer, the Linx Hypnos uses a ceramic rod.
My only gripe about the Linx Hypnos is that I don't get visible vapors with it, though I find that it's perfect for discreet vaping.
3. Yocan Evolve Plus
The perfect balance of functionality and affordability, the Yocan Evolve Plus is the epitome of what the perfect mix of quality and affordability should be like. The Yocan Evolve Plus Pen works as well as other vaporizers twice its price making it one of the most recommended wax pen vaporizers for both beginners and seasoned veterans alike.
It features powerful dual quartz coils for better vaporization and immediate to almost on-demand results while an optional ceramic donut coil (coil-less atomizer) is an optional replacement should you want an all-ceramic heating element. The Yocan Evolve Plus Pen is leaps and bounds better than any wax pen vaporizer in its price range as it features a larger concentrate chamber and an upgraded 1100mAh battery. It also sports a built-in silicone jar for that added portability. If you're the kind of person who likes to vape on their feet, then these Yocan Dab Pens are what you're looking for.
4. KandyPens Prism Plus
If you're the minimalistic kind who wants a subtle mixture of sophistication and superior vapor production then the Prism Plus from KandyPens is what you need. Like some of the vaporizers in this list, the Prism Plus is housed in a durable stainless-steel casing which effectively protects the Prism Plus. You'd want to have this wax pen vaporizer kept safe since it uses glass mouthpieces which surprisingly improves the flavors of your choice concentrates.
The Prism is powered by a 900mAh battery that is outfitted with preset temperature profiles that are fine-tuned to vaporize almost any kind of concentrate, be it earwax, shatter, or budder. What I loved about the Prism Plus is that it already includes two atomizers, a dual quartz rod atomizer, and a ceramic coil-less atomizer so you won't find yourself spending a little extra dough to get the complete experience.
5. Dr. Dabber Aurora
Probably the most decorated wax pen vaporizer in this list, the Dr. Dabber Aurora has won several recognitions in the highly acclaimed High Times Awards in 2016. It bagged awards like "Best Innovation" and "Best Stealth" to name a few. It was also recognized for being the best in "Taste" and in "Durability" in the same event. And if these recognitions aren't enough, we'd want you to know that the Dr. Dabber Aurora is the only wax pen vaporizer in this list to feature thread less magnetic connections making your reloads easier than ever. Removal and replacement of parts can be achieved in seconds.
