Dab rig Vs Dab pen

Have you ever sat and wondered what the difference is between a dab pen and a dab rig? Well sit back and read on because you are about to find out. Dab rigs are glass setups that someone can smoke wax concentrates from. It is like a glass bong but for wax.

The anatomy of a dab rig:

  • A chamber for the water
  • A mouthpiece
  • A bowl for the wax so that heat can be applied to it.

The process

You will first need a heat source like a blow torch that can superheat a domeless nail that was used to apply the wax to and then you can vaporize it. You can use a dabbing tool to avoid a sticky situation.

Vape Pen with Wax

how to use a vape pen


The first step is to use a small amount of safe and nontoxic wax. Make sure that the wax has been approved by your local health department before proceeding. If you can find one that is made specifically for your type of electronic device, then go for it! This small amount will provide enough heat to melt the wax and unclog your airflow system. It is important to remember to only heat the small amount of wax.


Once the coil is heated up, grab your load tool and load it up into the coil.

The load tool should look similar to a hook (it probably does). Once loaded into the coil, you should see a small amount of black smoke start to emit from the coil. If there is no black smoke coming from the coil, something may be wrong. Check to see if there is a small amount of melted wax in the coil and if not, the load tool may need to be adjusted.


If your coil is clean, and the black smoke still does not appear, then your coil is too dirty or damaged to use. Cleaning your coil does not include burning the wick. Just switch it off and allow it to cool down for a couple of hours or even overnight. After it has cooled down, you can then proceed to use the pressurized air supply.


Using the pressurized air supply to load your vaporizer is pretty simple.

Simply place your pen in the coil and start clicking and whirring away. When the coil begins to catch air, you know your coil is clean. You can then load more wick into the coil and continue clicking and whirring away.


If you find that your coil is too dirty, then you may have to remove some of the wick. Use a screwdriver to pry out a small amount of dirt, and then insert the end of the wick again into the coil. Repeat this process until your coil is free of dust and anything else that may impede your ability to use the device. You don’t want to damage your machine, so take your time with this step.


In conclusion, this article was designed to help you understand how to load your vaporizer with WAX. If you follow the tips here, you will find that your pen will be more reliable when properly warmed up. Also, you will find that loading and enjoying your pen will be much more enjoyable. So now that you know how, just go ahead and try it out.
