Canadian vaporizer manufacturer Arizer has recently brought to market a new portable vaporizer called the Argo or Arizer ‘Go‘. Arizer is known for manufacturing high quality devices that have strong long lasting batteries. The first vaporizer from Arizer was a desktop model that is required to be plugged in to a power source. The V Tower is a budget friendly desktop device that performs at the same level as more expensive brands.
Arizer followed up the success of there first vaporizer with the Extreme Q, Solo 1, Solo 2, and Arizer Air. Focusing on performance and quality while maintaining budget friendly devices has helped Arizer become one of the most popular vaporizer companies in the world. Here we will take a closer look at the Arizer Argo vaporizer.
The Argo is considered an easy to use inhalation device. To turn the Argo on you will need to press and hold both the M and the + button for several seconds while the unit turns on. You will hear a beep that signals the vaporizer has turned on. To cycle through the various temperature options you can use the + and – buttons. You can select a temperature to one degree of precision up to 220 degrees celsius.
To load the Arizer Argo, you can push down the mouthpiece shield which protects the glass mouthpiece tube. This motion will allow the glass mouthpiece to be exposed and you can remove it to fill it with herbs. The glass mouthpiece’s double as the oven loading chamber. You can twist the bottom of the glass tube into ground up herb to fill it. Once this is done you place the tube back into position. Now you are ready to vape.
The Argo is an interesting unit. One may think that a portable vaporizer is suppose to be a quick hitter that you can quickly use on demand. The Argo is a bit more of a time consuming portable vaporizer as it takes a while to finish an oven load. Initially it takes a bit of time to get a first good draw, and due to the convection nature of how your herbs are stored in the vaporizer it takes a bit longer to fully vape the contents. The flavor is pretty good with the Argo as it is heated evenly gradually.
Comparing the Arizer Air 2 and the Arizer Argo the batteries are similar. However, due to the Argo taking longer for a single session you will not be able to get as many sessions out of the Argo as the Air. The Argo is more compact and has more features than the Air. For the first model of the Argo it does pretty good with this battery.
If you have a friend who is also interested in getting the Arizer Argo you can both save buy buying at the same time. Some of the best deals and special offers are available from Vape-Smart, you can view the Arizer Argo on Vape-Smart here.
The Arizer Go is definitely the most portable and most discreet Arizer unit to date and will definitely find a home with people who prefer longer sessions that are full of flavor. However, the Arizer Solo 2 still remains the most powerful of the Arizer line.

Who says the vaping industry isn't fashionable? The new XLux Vixen wax pen is a discrete vaporizer that resembles a stick of makeup. XVape (XMax) has been manufacturing portable vaping devices for a long time and it looking to capitalize on the growing female consumer base for wax concentrates.
Vixen is a discrete portable wax vape pen that comes with a smell proof cap, magnetic mouthpiece, and leak proof design. If you have been on the lookout for a inconspicuous portable vaporizer pen, this could be your answer. Designed for those who like make-up the XLux Vixen comes in both black and pink casings.
The XLux Vixen is more powerful than I would have originally thought. After looking more closely at the Vixen wax pen I was pretty impressed. Powered by a 900 mAh battery, built with a smell proof cap and magnetic mouthpiece, USB charging, a leak proof design, and coming with 2 heating elements the Vixen is a solid little package. A dual quartz titanium coil and ceramic plate coil are included to give you the vaping experience more preferable to your liking.
Xlux Vixen has 3 pre set temperatures that you can vape your waxes with. Low temperature is set to 400C (753F), medium at 500C (932F), and high at 600C (1112F). This is a pretty wide range and high temperature output for such a small unit. The three options should be enough to deliver stronger flavor on low and larger hits on high.
Everything you need to start vaping wax concentrates is included (minus the wax). Included in the package with the XLux Vixen is a packing tool, USB cable, user manual, 2 heating elements, wax holding container, and the vaporizer itself.
XVape is more than just a discrete fashion vape pen manufacturer. Sure they also have the XVape Muse (view here) which is a vape pen that can also be used as a writing utensil. But they also have other high quality performance vaporizers. One of the newest editions to the XVape line is the XVape Fog. The Fog is a hybrid conduction + convection vaporizer that delivers superior vapor quality. Whether you are looking for a dry herb vaporizer, a wax vaporizer, an ultra portable pen or anything in between XVape has a solution that may work for you.

Today we examine the popular Utillian 420 vaporizer designed for dry herbs that you can get for a very competitive price. Many people believe that the Utillian brand is one of the best new vaporizer companies that brings high performance devices to market at the most competitive prices. The Utillian 721 is the big brother to the Utillian 420 and it has been compared to the industries top convection vaporizers such as the Mighty and Crafty which are two of the top devices in the Expensive Vaporizer category. In this article we will take a look at the performance and build quality of the Utillian 420 vaporizer and give our opinion on whether we thing its a good deal or not.

To start as with any portable vaporizer you should fully charge your device and also run it through on the highest heat setting with no material in it just to give it a quick clean. To load the Utillian 420 vaporizer you unscrew the glass mouthpiece which will allow you access to the oven heating chamber. You can use a grinder to grind up some loose leaf material and place it into the chamber. The best amount to put into the Utillian 420 is enough to make it still a bit loose and not to tight - a medium packing works best.
When you have all the above done you will be ready to start vaporizing your material. If youhaven't figured this part out already in order to turn the Utillian 420 vaporizer on you press the power button on the side of the device 5 times in a row (you do the same to power it off). When the device turns on you will see the remaining battery life displayed on the screen at the top, it will also show you the current temperature that the vaporizer is set to. By default the temperature will be set as the last temperature you used it on going forward.
There is only 1 button on the Utillian vaporizer and it is used to turn the device on as well as switch through the 4 pre set temperature options. To change temperature you just hold down on the button for about 3 seconds. Personally I think an up and down arrow would have been more user friendly and faster, but with more buttons comes more moving parts and the more likely a device will wear down or break faster.
To be honest the low price of this vaporizer would make you think that the vapor production would be not all that impressive. If you also thought this than you would also be incorrect. The Utillian 420 is one of the best vapor flavor producing vaporizers under $100 that we have tested.
The Utillian 420 impressed with its ability to extract and deliver strong flavor on the lowest 3 temperatures. The lower temperatures are perfect for extracting flavor while ensuring that none of your material combusts.The combination of these low temperatures and the glass mouthpiece makes for an enjoyable smooth vapor.
Most of the vaporizers that we have reviewed in the past in the vaporizers under $100 category get a little bit harsh and hard to hit on the high temperatures. The Utillian 420 was actually pretty goo and not delivering vapor to hot. The glass mouthpiece might be making a bigger difference in comparison to the ceramic or steel mouthpieces that some devices use.
The Utillian 420 is priced under $100 and yet it still has been built to the same standards as some of the industries most expensive devices. The 420 is housed in a anodized aluminum casing which makes it quite durable. The mouthpiece as we have touched on is glass which is perhaps that best material that you would want to have as a mouthpiece. Before holding the Utillian a feeling the weight and knowing that it was housed in aluminum I thought it might be some sort of plastic casing. The build quality of this unit is above average for vaporizers in general, and well above average for similarly priced vaporizers.
Utillian managed to keep the overall cost and purchase price of this model very low while including a screen that helps you keep track of battery life and visually see the current temperature. An LED screen in a vaporizer that costs just $89 is a nice touch.
Dry herb vaporizers have a disadvantage when compared to concentrate vaporizers in terms of battery life and portability. A dry herb vaporizer needs the oven to heat up and stay hot for a longer period of time. Typically for cheap dry herb vaporizers this means that you will not get many sessions and the longer your session the fewer you will get. Some cheap vaporizer will only allow you to get around 2 or 3 sessions or 20 to 40 minutes of vaping time. The Utillian 420 was able to easily deliver an hour of actual vaping time which at 6 minutes a session would give you 10 sessions.
For many users this amount of time will be enough to get you through a day and overnight you will have it charge for the day that follows. For some vape users one hour may not be enough. The Utillian uses a micro USB chord which gives you more options than a standard wall plug so that you can find more opportunities throughout your day to give it a recharge if need be.
The Utillian 420 is a pretty compact little unit that is only 11 cm high, 5 cm wide, and 2 cm in depth. These dimensions are actually pretty hard to believe since they are so small and the device pack quite a bit into its small design. The Utillian 420 is the smallest in the line of Utillian devices the second largest being the Utillian 621 and the largest being the dry herb convection vaporizer the Utillian 721.
The compact mini dry herb vaporizer 'Utillian 420' is one that I almost overlooked and shrugged off as a cheap vaporizer. I would have been wrong to do this and am glad that I took the time to dig more into this little vaporizer. Utillian is on the right track and is bringing to market well made low priced vaporizers. The vaporizer industry has had a few big names for a very long time that have charged an arm and a leg to get a hold of one. The competition that has been created in the past few years seems to have driven down prices while making build quality and vapor quality more important.
The Utillian 420 vaporizer is one of the best options in the under $100 category for dry herb vaporizers in my opinion. The 4 heat settings, the small size, strong build quality, LED screen, and glass mouthpiece make this a solid vape to buy. If you are looking for a bit more of a powerful unit that uses convection heating instead of conduction you may want to consider looking into the Utillian 721 vaporizer here. If you want to learn more or buy the Utillian 420 you can visit one of the links below depending on your area.

Today we have a look at one of the best new wax dab pens that was released in 2017. The QLoudUp Nexus Vaporizer is a powerful new pen that has many people interested for a few reasons. The Nexus comes with a lifetime warranty and 3 coils to work with peoples individual vaping preferences. The Nexus pen is priced very competitively at $80 which pits it against other affordable vaporizers under 100. Here we will touch on a few aspects of the Nexus Vaporizer by QLoudUp to see if it performs well and is worth your money.
The Nexus is available in a few different color options. As you can see from the images of the Nexus wax pen on this page it is a very sleek modern looking pen. You can get it in matte blaq, ruby red, pearl white, and gun metal.
The vape battery is a bit on the weak side, but for a wax pen and how it is designed it hits pretty hard. The battery is a 650 mAh temp controlled battery that has 3 temperatures settings of 340f, 400f, and 460f.
You are able to take 20 second draws from the Nexus vaporizer which is more than enough time to get a good hit. The Nexus by QLoudUp comes with 3 different heating chambers/atomizers - it comes with an all ceramic heating chamber which is great for flavor, a quartz crystal single titanium coil atomizer, and a dual quartz crystal titanium coil atomizer for quick large rips.
The oven chamber is actually pretty deep. Considering the design makes it so the oven can't have a very wide diameter since it is a slim pen shape they did good job at making the oven a solid size by going deeper. You are able to easily git half grab in the oven chamber.
The thread used for the Nexus vape pen is 510 which is typical in wax pens. The device was designed in the US and quality inspected in the US. It has been made with no wicks, glues or dyes. This is important to know that the vapor you will be inhaling is primarily your material and not any left over grit and grind from the manufacturing process. Even still it is still a good idea to run the wax vape pen through a cycle or two on the highest setting with each heating element to give it a burn clean.
One of the biggest features of the Nexus by QLoudUp is that it comes with a lifetime warranty. This gives you peace of mind knowing that the company itself is confident in the product they are selling and in the case that anything standard goes wrong with your unit you will be taken care of.
The package that you get with the Nexus wax pen includes the pen itself, the ceramic chamber, the single quartz chamber, the double quartz chamber, a micro USB charging cable, a dabbing tool, the user's manual, and a travel case.
The price is right and the hits a pretty good. The Nexus vaporizer is rated as one of the best new wax pens of 2017 and when considering things like the lifetime warranty, the temperature options, the overall build quality, the 3 heating chambers/atomizers and the low price tag we can see why it is a popular new wax pen.
The downfalls I see is the less then average battery and the fact that is designed to vape just wax concentrates. If you are looking for a more powerful vaporizer or perhaps one that can vape more than one material you can browse the sections below based on price.
One new vaporizer that may be of interest that was also released in 2017 is the Hera 2 which is a touch screen vaporizer designed for dry herbs and concentrates. A more expensive top of the line vaporizer that is jsut being released that you may also wish to look into is the Ghost MV1.
If you think that the Nexus by QLoud Up is a vaporizer that you may wish to purchase you can do so by visiting there official website here.
Dabado has made a new and improved version of the highly successful Bolt e-nail vaporizer that has jsut recently been released. The Dabado Bolt 2 looks sick and we are excited to check it out here today. The Dabado enail is a very easy to use and powerful little enail that you can get for cheap. Here we will touch on a few aspects of this cool new portable vaporizer and let you know whats new and if it might be right for you to purchase. Continue reading our Dabado Bolt 2 vaporizer review below.

The Dabado Bolt 2 is the next generation in the Bolt line. This new model has a built in LCD screen with a temperature display and a battery usage indicator as well. The Dabado Bolt 2 package comes with an extra heating element in the kit which acts as a backup in the case that you end up using this thing to the max for a while and need it replaced. This extra heating attachment adds a great deal of value to the package an should give this product a long shelf life.
The Dabado Bolt is one of the flagship devices from Dabado and is one of the easiest and most powerful portable dabbing vaporizer on the market. You no longer have to deal with a rig/torch setup or even have to be plugged into a wall as the case with desktop enail vaporizers. The image below shows you the Dabado Bolt 2 with the included glass piece and dab tool/carb cap.
Using the Dabado Bolt 2 is very easy - before you start using it with your material (wax/dabs) you will want to make sure to charge the device fully to start the battery off on the right footing. Secondly you should run the enail on a high temperature just to burn away any excess material that might have gotten in the nails - you can do this with all 3 of them. After you do this the device is ready for you to start dabbing with.
The device turns on with a few clicks of the power button and using the same button you can cycle through the temperature settings. You will attach the water attachment and when ready to dab hold down the fire button to get the nail up to temperature, use your dab tool to place the wax in the nail, and inhale. You will then use the carb cap to trap in the heat and get a good hit.
Very impressed with the hits you get with this little unit. The Bolt 2 is quick and powerful with all three of the included nails. My personal preference is the ceramic as it delivers the best taste in my opinion.
If you are looking for another option for doing dabs I recommend taking a look at the Atmos Studio Rig. The Atmos Studio Rig connects on to a vape mod using a 510 attachment. This allows you to turn your vape eliquid vaporizer into a powerful dabbing enail unit. You can check out the Atmos Studio Rig here.
Here is a video of the Dabado Bolt 2 where you can see the types of hits you can expect from this device. The video also shows how easy it is to replace the heating element, and the device being used with various glass pieces and a larger recycler. The Bolt is a versatile product and in my opinion one of the better enails on the market. This unit just really stands out to me as it looks cool, its powerful, and the sessions are very enjoyable.
Included in the package you get is the vaporizer enail itself, a carrying case, a powerful 18650 battery, the Bolt 2 magnetic stand, a silicon protector, silicon container for your waxes, a glass attachment, 3 different e-nails (a ceramic one, a quartz one, and a titanium one). The Dabado Bolt 2 as we mentioned above now comes with a extra heating element, and of course the USB charger and user manual. This package is a good deal and makes the Bolt a strong competitor in the vaporizers under 250 category.
When buying a portable vaporizer the best place to make your purchase is through the official manufacturers website. In the vaporizer industry there are many sites that offer cheap knockoff products similar to fake sunglasses and watches. You can be sure you are getting a genuine Dabado Bolt 2 by visiting the official Dabado website at https://dabadovaporizers.com/products/black-bolt-2-kit.

KandyPens has recently come out with 2 new vape pens for wax. The 2 new models are called the KandyPens Prism and the KandyPens Prism Plus. Both are designed to work with essential oils and are both offered at competitive prices. In this review we will take a closer look at both of these models and see which one is the better overall deal and which one might be best for you specifically.

Some devices come with a free gift (case, grinder, package deal)
The KandyPens Prism is a newly released wax/oil vaporizer. This Prism is the smaller of the two new models, the larger being the Prism Plus which we review below. The Prism is a strong competitor in the best vaporizers under 100 category.
The overall build quality of the KandyPens Prism and Prism Plus are both made with high quality components. The fact that these 2 devices are priced around the $100 mark makes them a pretty good deal. The housing of the Prism is made using medical grade electro plated stainless steel - comes in both white and black. The package comes with 2 heating chambers, one all ceramic and the other is quarts and titanium.
The Prism has a average size battery of 320 mAh while the Prism Plus has a more powerful 900 mAh battery. Depending on your lifestyle will likely determine which model you get - either a quicker charging model or a longer lasting model.
The mouthpiece is made from glass and no glues wicks or dyes were used to make or exist in either of these 2 vape pens. The package comes with 2 mouthpieces. If you get the Prism you will get a lightning charger (similar to an iPhone 5 or higher charger). The package comes with a dab tool, a cap for the top, and also a velvet protective pouch.
The Kandy Pens Prism and Prism Plus both come with a lifetime warranty for the battery. The Prism models were developed and designed in the US.
The Prism comes with two different heating chambers which both are designed to deliver a different vapor experience. The dual quarts rods with titanium coils are meant for bigger rips and heat you material up at a faster speed and deliver bigger vapor clouds. The all ceramic heating chamber is designed to work a bit slower and delivers a more flavorful draw.
If you are looking for more flavor I would stay on the lower 2 pre-set temperatures, and if looking for quicker draws and more vapor go with the higher two. The 4 temperatures are as follows: 320°, 350°, 390°, 430°.
The Prism has an ok battery and one that you typically find in the lower end vape pens. The battery used is a 350mAh sub ohm battery. The Prism Plus is the unit that has a larger more powerful battery.
The Prism is a very easy to use wax vaporizer pen. You turn the device on by pressing the power button 5 times. You are able to change the temperature by pressing the same button 2 times. The 4 temperatures are noted by the color of the LED light around the button - Yellow 320°F, Green 350°F, Red 390°F, and Blue 430°F.
It is recommended to fully charge the Prism before first use and to also run it through the highest temperature setting before your first use. This will just burn away any unwanted materials that may have found there way into either of the heating chambers.
Both the Prism and the Prism Plus have pass through charging so they can be used when plugged in. When you load your essential oil into the vaporizer and your ready t use it you simply hold down the power button and it heats up instantly. You can than take slow draws and enjoy.
The KandyPens Prism Plus is the larger more powerful version of the Prism wax/oil vape pen. If you are looking for a more portable vape pen that lasts longer and packs a bigger punch this one will be for you.
Overall build quality of the Prism Plus is identical to the Prism. Please refer to the section above if you have not read it already regarding build quality of the KandyPens Prism vape pens.
The KandyPens Prism Plus also comes with two heating chambers similar to the Prism. The same principles apply and you are able to use the all ceramic heating chamber for more flavorful hits while the dual quarts rod titanium coil heating chamber is designed for quicker larger hits.
The Prism Plus is powered by a powerful 900 mAh sub-Ohm battery. This battery will get you quite a bit more use in between charges. The downfalls of this larger battery is that it takes longer to charge and that it requires the overall size of the device to be larger. I personally think the larger one is still a good size and compact enough to fit easily into a pocket or carrying bag.
The KandyPens Prism Plus works similar to the Prism. They both use the simple one button design. The difference in the units is how they charge. The Prism Plus only has a micro USB slot located on the side of the unit, while the Prism has both a micro USB slot and a lightning USB charging slot.
So after having a look at both the KandyPens Prism and the KandyPens Prism Plus we can see that there are 4 main differences. The Prism Plus is a larger device than the Prism and also has a powerful battery that will last longer in between charges. The Prism Plus has the LED lights on the side where as the Prism does not. Lastly the Prism Plus does not have the lightning charger that the Prism has located on the bottom of the pen. So the smaller model has quick charging but does not last as long and is a bit less powerful. Choosing which one is best will depend on your need for portability vs quick charging. If you will be needing your device away from power for longer periods of time than the Prism Plus is your best bet.
The best place to buy is either from an authorized drop ship dealer such as Vape-Smart here.

The new vaporizer and attachments offered by Prohibited are pretty unique and something new to the vaporizer industry. Vaporizers are becoming more modular and attachments are becoming a bigger part of the picture. Vaporizers today are far more sophisticated than they were just a few years ago. Vaporizer like the ones from Prohibited are designed to vape multiple materials in multiple ways.This device may come to be a strong competitor in the best vaporizers under $250 category.
5th Degree Vaporizer has a few pretty cool attachments that will be available to work alongside it. Notably the dabbing attachment and the e-rig attachment which we will touch on a bit later. The Prohibited Vaporizer company also has a device called the 4th Degree coming out that is a more slim portable unit. In this article we will touch on the build quality, attachments, portability, ease of use, and where to get one if you so choose.
Visit Prohibited Official Site Here To Learn More
The Prohibited 5th Degree Vaporizer boasts a unique a premium vaping experience. This device uses different cartridges for dry herbs and for wax concentrates making it a multi material vaporizer. The interchangeable cartridges connect to the 5th Degree using magnets for a very user friendly and fast loading design. A combination of variable voltage and temperature settings gives you more control over your session than most other portable vaporizers.
The 5th Degree vaporizer by Prohibited has been built using a stainless steel oven for dry herbs and a dual quartz and titanium cartridge for concentrates. The housing is made using a single body construction design. The vaporizers from Prohibited are offered with a top tier warranty that only a small handful of device manufactures offer. The portable vaporizer by Prohibited have a lifetime warranty - this should tell you something about the overall quality and confidence that they have in their product.
The 5th Degree Prohibited Vaporizer is a portable multi material vaporizer. The device charges with the magnetic charging dock and is powered by a powerful internal rechargeable battery. The 5th Degree model is not quite as small as the 4th degree model that Prohibited is also offering but the design and functionality make the 5th Degree a more versatile and powerful option. If you plan on using the device without the 2 attachments it is a more portable unit.
The 5th Degree vaporizer is designed to be used with dry herbs and thicker concentrates. This device is not meant to work with e-liquids. Overall the versatility of this portable multi material vaporizer is pretty good.
The option to change variable voltage, the option to adjust the temperature settings, the option to vape different mediums, and the option to pair the device with innovative attachments such as the 5th Degree Dabber Attachment and the 5th Degree E Rig Attachment. This level of versatility does not exist in to many vaporizers when they are first introduced to market. The fact that right out of the gates these options are being mentioned likely means that we will see more innovative attachments designed for the Prohibited vaporizers.
The first attachment you may want to get is the tip heating dab attachment. When you connect this to the vaporizer mod you turn it into a Dipper like vaporizer. If you are unfamiliar with a dabbing vaporizer it is where the tip has a little atomizer in it that vapes your concentrates and inhaling through the mouthpiece at the same time.
The second attachment is the portable e rig. This allows you to vape concentrates using a nail and a water bubbler attachment. The e-nails have a heating capacity of 450°C and the nails are interchangeable.
A more portable vaporizer experience that will work for both dry herbs and concentrates by Prohibited is called the 4th Degree Vaporizer. As you can see by the preview below the 4th Degree Vape Pen is much smaller and more pocket friendly than the 5th Degree. We are not sure about the details of the 4th degree pen yet and also unsure about the attachment options.
Overall the Prohibited vaporizers are well built and stem from a new company that has parent companies that have been in the vaporizer business for quite a while. The versatility, portability, build quality, attachments and overall look and feel to the Prohibited line are very good.
The option to vape both dry herbs and concentrates from the 5th Degree in various ways is something that will keep you interested in the same device for a while. The fact that Prohibited is offering a lifetime warranty with there devices is quite impressive and should tell you something about the overall quality and confidence that they have in their product line.
The best place to buy the Prohibited Vaporizers is directly through there official website. There are a lot of companies that attempt to replicate vaporizer from other companies similar to fake watches. It is recommended to purchase from with the official manufacturer here.
The DAbOX portable wax vaporizer has recently been released by Vivant. The DAbOX is a compact vaporizer that makes dab hits very easy and convenient. The spelling of the device with the small 'b' makes it more apparent that it is meant to be a 'dab' 'box' in an attempt to gain market share of the growing wax/dab user-base. In this article we will have a look at the build quality, vapor quality, portability, pros and cons, our overall assessment, and where to get one if you think this device is right for you. Continue reading to learn more about from our Vivant DAbOX review.
The DAbOX wax vaporizer is built using quality materials and delivers 40W at the press of the fire button. The glass chamber is pretty big which allows the vapor to travel a good distance before hitting your lugs. The glass chamber is very easily removable making it simple and quick to clean.
The DAbOX dab vaporizer comes with a Dual Quartz Coil and a Dual Quartz Clapton Coil. The device has a patent pending Flip Door that opens and closes giving you access to the coil where you can quickly load it or replace a coil as necessary. It's actually a bit similar to the Ghost MV1 oven chamber in a sense that it is easily accessible, loadable, and maintainable.
The LED lights the device uses communicate various things with you. The LED lights will indicate if the unit is charging or fully charged, if the device is on or off, the connection to the coil, and you can also use stealth mode if you like.
When you have the device in use - as in you have the fire button pressed down (yes the DAbOX uses a fire button) the glass mouthpiece tube will light up from the LED lights to display the approximate remaining battery life. There are 3 different LED colors that will display depending on the remaining charge - if it lights up green you will have between 80% and 100% battery life remaining, if it lights up blue you will be sitting at 20% to 79%, and if it lights up red you will be running low and be between 1% and 19%. This is an interesting way to go about the remaining battery and to be honest does not seem like the most user friendly way to do it. They should have at least had maybe 5 different colors and closed the huge gap between 20% and 79% to help give the user a better idea. The light could be blue and you might think to your self 'what a wonderful world', and than bam! red light of death. Just saying, its 2017 could give the user a bit more of an indicator. Overall not a big deal, just something that seems a bit off to me.
The chart below will give you a god indicator of what to expect when using each f the included coils. The dual quartz coil has the fastest heat up time, which in turn gives you more battery longevity on a single charge. The Clapton dual quartz has the longest heat up time but also produces the best vapor. The single quartz Clapton coil is not included and can be purchased separately and falls in the middle of the other two in both vapor quality, energy usage and heat up time.
The DAbOX uses a built in 1500mAh lithium ion battery which for the size of the unit is a descent battery. Using a built in battery can sometimes be a pain when the device take 2 to 3 hours to charge, but the DAbOX uses a quick charge system that allows it to charge with 2 Amps current making it able to go from a 0% charge to 100%charge in under 1 hour. When the battery is charging the device will light up red and when fully charged the light will turn off.
The size of this new portable wax vaporizer is pretty small and the shape is a comfortable one. It can easily be held in the palm of your hand with the fire button in a good position. The device feels pretty powerful and generates some descent vapor clouds.
Here's what you will get in the DAbOX Vaporizer Kit:
Overall the DAbOX is a well designed vaporizer that provides something a bit different then the typical portable wax vape pen design we see with pretty much every other unit. Portable wax vaporizers are becoming more popular and the ability to do dabs so conveniently on the go is great to see. The fire button and the design of this vaporizer makes it feel a bit like a vape mod opposed to a herbal vaporizer. The price point of this wax vaporizer is extremely low and perhaps the lowest we've see for a device that performs as well as this one does. I would like to just point out another portable shatter vaporizer that you may be interested in as well - if you have not yet checked out the Dipper from DipStick Vapes it is a innovative versatile shatter pen that is also pretty cool. In conclusion the DAbOX is a good deal and performs well - a great way to get into dabs if you haven't already.
