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 your head spin. The key to making a decision is focus, and we have laid out the top things to focus on when shopping for a wax vaporizer pen.
The coil is where the wax is loaded, heated and vaporized. 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 and budget.
The battery life is important but most wax vapes can last all day, however size can differ and impact portability. Some new models now come with an auto heat function with variable heat settings. Many are fairly simple and standard across the board with operation. Some give you full control to fine tune the settings according to the wax in question so you can deliver the tastiest, best experience possible.
In addition to the standard wax coils that work with a vape pen, a glass globe is a great way to improve the vaping experience. 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. Get bigger, tastier and smoother pulls from any vape pen.
Vaping is the easiest and most convenient way to vaporize wax concentrates. Any vape that is deigned for this can be designated a wax vaporizer or pen. Like other vaporizers, there is a battery to power the unit, a heating chamber and coil where wax is loaded and heated, and a mouthpiece to seal the chamber and start vaping. Without the wax pen, the only other way to enjoy wax is with a nectar collector or dab rig and domeless nails.
Especially right after a vape session, wax becomes fluid-like and if the vape pen is left on its side, the liquid-like 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 trying to unscrew and remove a heating chamber or mouthpiece. In addition, it certainly leads to a loss of precious wax concentrates.
Wax is super sticky and can be tough to handle. During handling, even with a dab tool, wax can be lost on fingertips, dabbers and other random surfaces. 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.
Maintain the wax coil, but regardless, over time a coil will go, or may be lost. Some users prefer fresh coils when trying out 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.
Vapor particles cool as they travel up through the mouthpiece and over time the pathway may become clogged. If you find it difficult to get vapor, this may be the issue. If possible, feel free to scrape and gather any excess wax build up - sometimes possible and worth the small dab you get. But to thoroughly clean the mouthpiece, soak it in 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.
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.
A wax vaporizer is an electronic and should never be exposed to water. If you need to clean a vape battery or other exterior part of the vape, simply use a damp cloth, perhaps with some cleaning solution but be wary about impacting the exterior paint/design. If it is wax residue, simply scrape off with a dab tool and collect.
