Electronic dab rigs are quickly replacing the manual glass instruments as they give a more wholesome experience. The device allows the wielder to change the temperature precisely, which is an indispensable requirement for generating flavorful vapors, especially from cannabis having a high terpene concentration.
They require a certain temperature; otherwise, the potency dissipates, and the plant fails to give out the optimum flavor. This is where e-rigs come and save the day with their superior technology. If you want one, you would need a guide to help you choose the right option. Here is everything you need to know about e rig.
Size and Portability
They come in all shapes and sizes and can be categorized into two classifications: desktop and portable e-nails. The desktop rigs are hefty units, built for vaping in a fixed place. The devices are huge and require an electric connection to work. However, there are models that even run on huge built-in batteries.
Portable e-rigs, on the other hand, aren’t as compact as vape pens. They are still hefty when compared to pen vaporizers, but relatively portable than their desktop counterparts. The good thing about these units is that the components come off, and you can store them separately. This helps you carry the device around in your bag.
For many reasons, they are better suitable for advanced users. For instance, the device gives out extremely intense vapors, which might be too much for non-experienced users. Plus, they have a learning curve and aren’t as easy to use as vape pens — the assembly consists of various components that are not easy to mount.
However, portable counterparts are neither complex nor hard to operate. But still, we would recommend the simpler versions for the newbies to gain some experience before getting an e-rig.
Nail Only Devices
E-nails are indeed complex, and may not be suitable for newbies, but they are undoubtedly superior. The built-in torch heats the plant matter at a precise temperature without fluctuations, resulting in purer vapors. The traditional nails required blowtorch to heat the banger, and it relied so much on guesswork. And something like precise temperature calibration was impossible to achieve with a blowtorch. That is why electronic nails win over traditional devices, which are easy to use but lack satisfactory results.
Still, if you are stuck between choosing traditional or e-nails, why don’t you check out nail only devices? They are battery-powered re-attachable electronic nails that can be attached to any traditional rig. The attachment helps you control the temperature levels on any dab rig.
Ease of Use
Some models are not only hard to assemble but also pretty troublesome to use. Watch out from such devices, and make sure the one you choose is user-friendly and easy to carry around.
Different Nail Types
Different material is used for e-nails, including quartz, ceramic, and titanium — each having certain benefits. Some e-nails come with all three types, while others may come with one or two. It depends on the brand and model. Read on to find out the difference between these three nail types.
Ceramic Nail – it is known for its ability to retain heat for long. Plus, it preserves the natural flavor, given the fact that ceramic is a chemically neutral material. On the con side, it doesn’t heat up fast.
Titanium Nail –Unlike ceramic nails, they reach the optimum temperature faster and retains the heat for a long time. However, the vapor quality isn’t as good as in the other two types of nails. That is because the material is reactive and leave a metallic taste in the vapors.
Quartz Nail –it heats up fast, and keep the vapors pure. But it does not retain heat for long.
