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.

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.
