Dab rigs and e-nails are common smoking accessories on the market today. But when used together, they make for an unrivaled experience in terms of efficiency and enjoyability.
What Is A Dab Rig?
First things first: You probably know what a dab rig is. But let’s just run through the basics for a quick refresher.
A dab rig is a type of water pipe that’s designed specifically for smoking oils, legal concentrates, wax or honey. It features a dab nail instead of a traditional bowl piece. With a dab rig, you heat the concentrate of your choice on the dab nail to vaporize it.
What Is An Electronic Nail?
An e-nail is a vaporization device that offers a steady temperature for vaporizing concentrates. It typically comes in the form of a small box and fits over the nail. The device’s metal coil gets heated through the use of electricity, and buttons on it allow users to have more control over the temperature of the concentrate.
Why Does An E-Nail Work So Well With A Dab Rig?
While using a torch to heat your dab rig to high temperatures is super easy, you literally have zero control over the process. And when you’re using an oil rig, temperature consistency is key. If your device is too cold, you’ll get little to no vapor, and your oil or concentrate will pool at the base of your nail. If your device is too hot, you’ll wind up with a rip that smells and tastes like hot, melting plastic—nobody wants that.
To combat these undesirable smoking experiences, many smokers opt to use e-nails with their dab rigs. An electronic nail is the most precise temperature control method on the market, making it easier to tell when you’ve reached your desired temperature than when using a standard torch. E-nails are perfect because they allow you to take low-temperature rips without having to wait for the nail to cool down. In addition to this, an electronic nail can also be much cheaper than a torch since it relies on electricity and not butane or other lighter fluids that often run out.
What To Look For When Browsing E-Nails
There are four key things to look for when shopping for your new electronic nail. To make sure you’ll get the most out of your smoking experience, keep these things in mind when deciding.
When shopping for your new e-nail, you’ll see that prices can run from $20 to $600. The amount you’ll pay is entirely based on your needs. While you may not want to buy a cheap, low-quality e-nail, you also don’t want to drop a month’s rent payment on one either. Good news. There’s a sweet spot when it comes to prices. You can find an electronic nail that is affordable but still offers you a quality rip. So, go for one that works with your style.
Portability is obviously a major factor when buying. If smoking with your dab rig means that you’ll have to haul a bunch of equipment around, you’re going to end up being annoyed a majority of the time. When shopping for your new e-nail, make sure it’s travel-ready and easy to use on the go. Most will come with a carrying case that will protect your e-nail and related equipment, making it more than easy to transport.
3. Customization Options
Customization options can take your electronic nail to the next level. Just be sure that the e-nail you’re considering is compatible with your current dab rig. You’ll also want to make sure that it will work with a variety of dab nail types, from titanium to ceramic to quartz. This gives you all the customization options you’ll need to change it up if you feel like it.
Last, but not least, you’ll want to make sure you get an e-nail that is durable and reliable. Part of this is choosing a device that’s easy to clean. You’ll want to clean your device after each use. Keeping your device and accessories in mint condition will help ensure a long lifespan.
