A wax pen vaporizer is a small handheld portable vaporizer that is used to vape concentrates. They typically have a single button on them that controls the unit when vaping. They are much easier to use than larger tabletop style vaporizers.
Wax Vapes will come with preset heat settings. They are extremely easy to use, and portable pen-style vapes are very portable. They can be used discreetly for dabbing while on the go.
Tabletop concentrate vapes lack the portability but are great for use while at home. They can handle extremely heaving dabbing. Tabletop vapes are great for larger seshes with friends. These vapes will have multiple heat settings, and you will be able to find your heat according to the type, and consistency of your extracts.
You can use many different types of concentrates in wax vapes. Shatter, Wax, THCa Diamonds, Rosin, and many other extracts are can be used in most wax pens.
Wax pens don't work well with oils & liquids. Even the liquid extract in sauce tends to run out of the atomizer making it extremely difficult to dab. For best use of the vapes a thicker concentrate is needed. Diamonds, shatter, crumble, etc.. are a good choice.
Loading your wax vape
Concentrates are much stickier and harder to handle then flower. They need to be stored in silicone containers that are non-stick. To transfer your wax from the silicone container you want to utilize some sort of dabber.
Dabbers can come in many different materials, but all perform the same function. From glass, titanium, stainless steel, to silicone there are many options on the market with varying degrees of expense. There is no need to spend a lot as they need to perform the simple task of loading your vaporizer chamber.
With concentrates you won't need to load as much into the chamber like with dry herbs. A little can go a long way because of the potency.
Wax vaporizer atomizer styles
Wax vapes come in many different atomizer styles. The atomizer is the element that heats up and vaporizes your concentrates.
Single rod, double rod, and triple rod vapes have varying amounts of rods running through the atomizer. The number of rods correlates with how much vapor the vaporizer will produce.
For lesser amounts of vapor a single rod is a good choice. For intense amounts of vaping power go to the triple rod atomizer, and you won't be disappointed.
Coilless atomizers have no rods or coils and the chamber appears empty. They tend to be lower temperatures and offer smooth dabs.
Ceramic atomizers are very popular. They offer slower heat up and slowly cool down temps. Ceramic coils are easy to clean and don't impart any flavor on your concentrates.
Quartz atomizer coils are favored for their inert flavor. They let you taste the true flavor of your wax, or shatter. Quartz heats up faster and cools down faster than ceramic.
