Guide to Choosing Wax Pens

Vaping continues to be an ongoing and growing trend. Although most beginners start by taking mild doses of either vaping cartridges of liquids, when you become more experienced you will want to move onto higher concentrated doses, to get a more intensive experience. If you are at that stage, you should consider investing in a wax pen. Even if you are vaping CBD oil for legitimate health reasons, a wax pen can help you get even more from it.

If you have ever looked at the different dab wax pens available right now, you may have found it confusing and intimidating. To help you make the best choice, therefore, we are going to outline some of the important things you need to consider when choosing one. The one that’s right for you will be different from someone else, but we are sure we have given you enough information to help you find the wax vape pen with perfect performance for your needs.

Consider the Type of Concentrate or Dab

Above all else, you need to think about the kind of concentrate or dab you are looking to vaporize or use. The point is that not all wax pens are designed to work with any type of concentrate. You need to make sure the pen you choose is compatible with the kind of vaping material you will be using.

Battery Lifespan

The second most important aspect you need to consider is the battery lifespan of the dab wax pen you buy. You normally have the choice between a rechargeable or battery-powered pen. How often are you intending on vaping? If it’s just once or twice, then the battery lifespan will not make much difference to you. However, if you are going to be vaping regularly, you need to consider the lifespan of the batteries, the charge time and whether the pen you choose can take rechargeable batteries.

Size Really Does Matter

Don’t listen to what anyone says, size is crucial. Particularly if you regularly vape on the go and don’t just vape in the house. The mobility and portability of a wax pen depend on how big or small it is. Work out if a pen is compact enough to fit into your pocket or bag, before purchasing to avoid spending on something you can’t use in the way you intend to.

Material Used and Quality of Build

You obviously want to invest in a wax dab pen that is going to stand the test of time and not fall apart within just a few uses. Therefore, pay close attention to the type of material that is used to make it. Even if you are looking to save some money, look at where the savings have been made by the manufacturer. Pens that include metallic components and parts are going to last a lot longer than those made from plastic. Although, that could affect the price and push it out of your price range.


Following on from the point we made above about the price, although we would suggest you don’t base your final decision solely on the cost, you will obviously have a budget you want to stick to. It’s important to make sure your budget is reasonable though. Look at the marketplace. Any vape pen that seems to be dramatically lower in price than others may be cheap for a reason.

On the other side of things, more expensive doesn’t always mean better quality. You need to find a good balance. You need to weigh up what’s important to you from a vape, your budget and use customer reviews to assess whether it is a worthwhile purchase or not. Looking at both positive and negative reviews will give you a clearer and more balanced idea of the kind of experience you can expect from a pen.
