What are the Best Electric Dab Rigs in 2020?
In the old days, everyone used glass water pipes or hand pipes to smoke the dry herbs. Last few years, dabbing with oil rigs or nectar collectors has been popular. Dabbing is an efficient way to inhale a concentrated dose of canna from wax to shatter. However, most dabs require a blowtorch to heat up the titanium nail or quartz nail.
Nonetheless, an innovation, electronic dab rigs (also known as e-rigs or e-nails) is the perfect alternative to a torch. An electric dab rig eliminates burning plant matter, permitting for a smoother inhalation with water filtration on the lungs.
Here are the best electric dab rigs on the market in 2020.
High Five DUO
Advertised as the smartest e-rig in the market today, the High Five DUO will definitely impress you with its technologically advanced features. It is equipped with the most precise and intelligent heating system particularly designed for the DUO.
The High Five DUO is conveniently compatible with dry herb and wax concentrates, which makes it a unique hybrid. The traditional rigs and most e-rigs are only compatible with wax concentrates. (Release of the attachment for dry herb to be announced.)
One of the main features of the DUO is the fast heat-up. It also has haptic feedback. It comes with 16mm quartz and titanium heating elements you can choose from and change depending on the material you would like to use. It has both pass-through and fast-charging capabilities.

It comes with its own High Five-branded pouch. It also comes with a very informative manual which you will need when assembling the High Five DUO.
Dr. Dabber Boost EVO e-Rig
Dr. Dabber Boost EVO e-Rig is the brand's latest innovative creation. It is the most advanced version of the original Boost.
The Boost EVO, according the Dr. Dabber, is definitely a leap above the competition. The device has an improved design compared to its predecessor. The manufacturer created the Boost EVO with the combination of ergonomics and function in mind. As a result, they came up with a very powerful device in a very convenient and travel-friendly make. It is available in two colors - Eclipse Black and Moon White. Composed of 4 main components connected by snap-technology, it can be easily assembled and disassembled for cleaning and travel. These 4 main components are the glass attachment, the quick connect adapter, the atomizer, and the base. Its glass attachment is replacement and exchangeable with a bent neck for more convenience. Its built-in battery, which is compatible with Type-C Fast Charging, can cater to over 40 hits on a single full charge. The EVO is outfitted with a built-in temperature sensor attached to the snap-in atomizer. Its purposes are to make sure that the atomizer never overheats the material and gets you back to the original temperature you set after repeat hits.
These are just some of the major features Dr. Dabber packed the Boost EVO with. Complete information can be found on the product page.
Focus V Carta V2
The Focus V Carta V2 is an electric dab rig or a vape rig which is famous for its use with both dry herbs and concentrates with an add-on atomizer.
It has four preset temperature settings, including 500, 630, 770, and 842 degrees Fahrenheit. The device heats up quickly with an average of 15 seconds under high temperatures and 10 seconds under low temperatures. An alternative way to control heat settings is to connect with your phone via Bluetooth. The app is available for iOS and Android and lets you control the temperatures easily.
The Carta V2 is packed with two premium bowls manufactured from titanium and quartz. The atomizer on the Focus V Carta vape consists of a high-quality build design called reverse threading, making it difficult to break.
The Carta by Focus V is also packed with 2 pieces of 18350 1200 mAh batteries. The average hit per consumer before the battery runs down is 40 when on a single charge.
The device charges quickly when connected to its USB-C cable. The 18350 removable batteries found on the Carta vape are easily replaceable with the Carta vape, and any batteries will work. The diversity of the 18350 batteries makes it suitable for travel or weekend trips.
Puffco Peak Pro
Here comes the improved version of the already revolutionary Puffco original Peak, the Puffco Peak Pro. This smart e-Rig can be customized via its own smartphone app. Options such as heat profiles and temperature settings can be conveniently controlled using the app.
The Peak Pro offers multiple modes you can choose from, such as Ready Mode and Stealth Mode. The Live Stat Display shows the current active heat setting, bowl temperature, daily dabs, and total dabs. The Peak Pro has an improved heating element and the capability to save your personalized temperature, vapor production, and time settings, which would be activated in the Ready Mode. There are a lot of upgrades done with this version. First thing we would like to mention is it comes with a power dock. The power charging dock functions as a home-base for the Peak Pro and allows you wireless charging, like a powerbank. It offers real-time heat setting control. The redesigned oculus carb cap allows you to see your materials as they are heated and vaporized. Besides the modes already mentioned above, it has a Lantern Mode which features 3 LED lights settings.
Finally, the Puffco Peak Pro comes with a travel pack which is perfect for on-the-go dabbers, which makes it a step-up from traditional vape pens and dabbing rigs.
The KandyPens Oura E-Rig is like most design patterns of other dab rigs, but with an additional KandyPens spin on it. The electric dab nail has a bell-shaped bubbler which distinguishes it from other electronic rigs in the market. The heating coil is found at the base and attaches to the front, and the atomizer can quickly move in and out. The device also has a detachable harness that connects the coil to the carb cap to increase portability during refills.
The heat-up time for the Oura to heat up to the lower temperature settings is five seconds, but for the Oura to heat up to higher temperatures, it will require about twenty seconds, which is still a perfect time. The heat-up time is reasonable when compared to other portable dab rigs. The bell-shaped bubbler can regulate the draw resistance to zero, which makes it easy to inhale the vapor.
The Oura has an excellent vapor quality which can easily match—or exceed—the vapor quality of competing brands. The top-quality vapor is also thick by nature, which is quite good as well.
However, thick vapor can even be gotten through higher temperature settings. It's recommended to allow your device to heat up before placing your dab on the atomizer. If you are impatient to enable your device to heat up thoroughly, it can lead to smaller clouds.
The Oura has one of the more long-lasting batteries in the market, and it averages about thirty minutes per session before it needs to be recharged. It can become more durable if you turn off sesh mode and choose lower temperatures. The USB-C charger that's packed with the device provides fast charging in less than an hour. Furthermore, you can use pass-through charging while waiting for the Oura to recharge, but it needs more charging time before use.
The Pulsar RoK ( RöK refers to the smoke in Swedish terms) is among the most exciting portable dab rigs in the market. It measures precisely 6.75 inches tall and fits quite comfortably in hand because of the narrow middle section.
The RöK by Pulsar Vaporizers can also vape both dry herbs and concentrates, which makes it more versatile than competing brands. This electronic dab rig also offers RöK mode, which is like the session mode found in other vape pens in the market. It holds the chosen temperature for about thirty seconds, so this removes the stress of continually holding down the power button.
The RöK offers one of the best vapor qualities in a dab rig due to the disc percolator that filters the vapor. This device also comes with an excellent battery life, which can last for about twenty-five to thirty sessions. However, one downside to the battery is the long hours of charge.
G Pen Connect
We considered adding the Dr. Dabber Switch in the top 6. However, G Pen Connect, which is a dab nail alternative vaporizer E-Nail, has been more and more popular since it was released in 2019. This is not really an electric dab rig, but we decided to add the Connect in the list. It is a compact adapter that converts your traditional dab rig with a glass on glass connection into an effective e-rig so that you can enjoy flavorful dabs in a convenient package.
The unit is packed in a 4.5" x 6" black hemp zippered travel case that is like a medium-sized purse. The primary components of the device (battery, housing, and 14mm male adapter) can be found on the right-hand side of the travel kit, while a micro-USB charging cable and other accessories are discreetly packed on the other side of the case.
You can easily switch through the essential temperatures settings by triple-clicking the one button on the battery: low (blue), medium (green), and high (red). After setting your temperature, you can begin heating your dab to enjoy the enhanced flavor.
This device doesn't support old-school bongs and ones which lack a glass on glass connector.
The G Pen Connect is an excellent device for amateur flower enthusiasts who are still learning about concentrates. This device will easily attach to their existing pieces and stop the worry of ever using a butane torch.
Vista Mini 2
This concentrate vaporizer e-Rig by XVape has a very unique and innovative design and was built with features that would surely take your vaping experience to the next level.
