Under the action of the market, all kinds of new equipment are constantly emerging, making people dazzled.

As a novice, it is a big difficulty to choose which equipment to operate. Next, RELEAFY will focus on the analysis of the dab pen and dab rig.

What is a dab pen?

A dab pen is mainly a kind of vaporizer for evaporating wax, which is mainly composed of a cigarette holder, battery, and heating chamber.

Mode of operation: The battery charges and heats the coil located in the heating chamber to a certain extent, and then the coil interacts with the wax, just like heated smeared nails contacting the wax to make it evaporate slowly. With the different needs, the dab pens developed on the market are also different, and everyone can choose a dab pen according to their preferences.

What is a dab rig?

A dab rig is mainly made of glass devices, mainly composed of a water chamber, mouthpiece, and nails.

This is the most basic configuration, and some more advanced equipment will be equipped with percolators and so on. Mode of operation: use a blowtorch to heat dabbing nails to a certain extent, put the concentrate on it to make it into steam, and then hit it through the mouthpiece, and the steam is also inhaled and enters through the water chamber lungs.
