The world of wax vapes is even more vast than the dry herb vaporizer world. Between the different types of vape pen models plus all of the different attachments available, there are enough choices to make the head spin. The key to making a decision is focus, and we have laid out the top 3 things to focus on when shopping for a wax vaporizer pen.
1. Type of Wax Coil attachment - this is where the wax is placed, heated and vaporized so it is the most important part. This is also the component that will need replacing first, and most often. Over time coils burn out, so making sure replacements are available and affordable is important. Choices will include pancake style coils, wick, donut and rod coils - furthermore, dual rod coils and even quad rod coils exist, in both ceramic and quartz. It ultimately comes down to preference but quartz is typically the more highly preferenced material.
2. Other Atomizer attachments - in addition to the standard coils that work with a vape pen, there are often other attachments and accessories available. If you have a wick coil, upgrade to ceramic or quartz, but to go a step further, get yourself a glass globe atomizer or a bubbler attachment - if those interest you, do some research and find out what can be equipped to your vape pen.
3. Overall Design - when it comes to vapes for wax there are many opinions and preferences for the right model. The battery life is important but most wax vapes can last all day, however size can substantially differ which can impact portability. Some new models now come with an auto heat function but most functionality is fairly simple and standard across the board - however some give you ultimate control in terms of adjust the voltage output into the atomizer and that directly impacts the vapor smoothness.
1. Keep the pen standing upright - especially right after a vaper session, the wax will become fluid like from the heat, and if the vape pen is left on its side, the liquidy wax will flow towards the mouthpiece, creating a stick mess all along its path. Depending on the vape model, this can cause an issue when tryng to remove a heating chamber or mouthpiece, and in either case, it certainly leads to a loss of precious wax concentrates.
2. Store wax concentrates in the freezer - wax is super sticky and can be tough to handle. Handle the stuff enough and a quarter of your product is lost on fingertips, dabbers and other random object. The freezer is the best place for storage and will make handling so much easier - but be quick after removing from freezer, especially in warmer weather.
3. Maintain the coil properly - even with dry herb vaporizers, coils will burn out over time due to natural ware and tare and also user error. Do Not over pack and smother the coil, doing so can cause damage or at least a sticky mess. Try not to poke the coil or drop it - small, delicate wires connect the inner workings and doing so can cause damage or cause a disconnect. The average coil does not need to be cleaned, however excess wax along a chambers walls can always be scraped up for vaping purposes.
4. Replacement Coils - maintain, properly vape but over time a coil will go, or may be lost. Some users prefer new coils for a new wax flavor too. Whatever it is, a short lived vapor session can kill the mood, but a replacement coil can save the day. If a single wax coil is the only hope, you should have a backup just in case, you will be happy when the time comes.
Vape Mouthpiece - vapor particles slightly cool as they travel up through the mouthpiece and over time the pathway may become clogged. It is is difficult to take a hit and pull vapor, start with the mouthpiece and any little components along with it. If possible, feel free to scrape and gather any excess wax build up - sometimes possible and worth the small dab hit you get. But to thoroughly clean the mouthpiece, soak it in 420 cleaning solution or rubbing alcohol. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, and then while still soaking, use a cotton swab, rag or something else to help remove any wax resin build up. Always rinse under warm water afterwards.
Filter Screens - to keep things simple and easy, many users replace the screens - you don't need to throw the screen away, but if you have a few screens, it may make sense to go through them all, and then clean them all at once. You can boil screen in hot water, bat it around and end up with a nice fresh screen - just be careful. You can also soak it in rubbing alcohol or cleaning solution just like the vape mouthpiece above.
Heating Chamber Coil - depending on the wax coil, you may be able to scrape the sides or walls and gather a small dab hit. Besides scraping any wax build up, there is no reason to clean any further. If the coil atomizer base is sticky from wax, feel free to wipe it clean with some sort of cleaning solution, but do not use anything dripping wet and avoid the interior of the coil chamber or dish. Do not over pack and try to use each pack until finished - this will keep the chamber or coil dish as fresh as possible plus limit the amount of spillage into other areas.
Packing a vape pen is fairly simple and straightforward. First, make sure the heating coil is attached and properly working - noone wants to pack a coil that has already burned out. Remove the mouthpiece and test the coil. With a working coil attached to the vape battery, use a dabber tool to scoop up a small ball of wax and gently place it directly into the heating chamber or dish. Push the wax towards the coil center but be very gentle and do not poke the coil directly. Add more as needed but Do Not overpack and place the mouthpiece back over or onto the coil atomizer to begin vaping.
