Source Orb 4 Signature Kit

The Source ORB 4 Signature Kit comes packed with 8 atomizers, magnetic mouthpiece and a 40W box mod making it one of the most powerful wax pens available. If you are looking for full customization, look no further.

Score

Focusvape Tourist

The Focusvape Tourist is hands down one of the best 2-in-1 vaporizers available. It features separate heads for both waxes and herbs as well as water filters for both attachments. Most multifunctional units sacrifice quality for function, but not the Focusvape Tourist. Both the herb and wax attachments are capable of producing some serious vapor.

Source Orb 4 Premium Kit

The Source Orb 4 Premium Kit adds portability to this premium wax pen with its 650mah pen battery giving you a full day of vaping. This kit includes 6 atomizers and 8 temperature settings for a truly amazing wax session.

Prohibited 5th Degree

This is a two in one vaporizer with a unique structure. It uses a cartridge system which allows you to quickly switch between wax and herbs. The unit has only one button and no display screen, so it lacks precise control for temperature, though it is capable of varying voltage. The vapor quality is great whether you’re using herbs or concentrates.


Thunder 2 Wax Pen

8.2
Score

ZEUS Thunder 2

The Thunder 2 is the follow up to very popular original Zeus Thunder, which was a 3 in 1 pen. Zeus has shifted its focus strictly on waxes for this new iteration with the goal of providing a superior concentrate experience. The atomizer features a ceramic plater atomizer to ensure even heating of your concentrates. This temperature adopts a low temperature approach, which is becoming popular in the wax community as it enhances the flavor of your wax and provides a more efficient session.


Dipstick Dipper Review

8.1
Score

Dipstick Dipper

This unique vaporizer features a bit of hardware which the manufacturer calls a ‘straw’. The straw allows the user to dip the end opposite of the mouthpiece into their wax and vape that way, instead of loading their wax in to the chamber. The unit does not have a lot of temperature flexibility but the vapor quality is high and the flavor is hard to beat.


boost-vaporizer-main

Score

Dr Dabber Boost

The Doctor Dabber Boost E-Rig will have you ditching the torch in no time. It is super simple to use and offers a water bubbler and 3 different nails for a cool, custom wax experience. It all comes in a portable carrying case, perfect to take with you for a weekend away.


linx-hyponos-zero-main

7.9
Score

Linx Hypnos Zero

The Linx Hypnos Zero features a super slim and sleek design making it seem more like an apple product then a wax pen. The reverse ceramic donut design of the atomizer provides great vapor and amazing flavor.


Dabado Bolt Pro Review

7.8
Score

Dabado Bolt Pro

This unit is essentially a portable e-nail and looks to replace a traditional wax rig with a battery powered, modular unit. The system has multiple pieces and also includes a dual purpose wax tool/cap. It can generate lots of vapor which leads to harsh hits at times. But the build quality is high.


gravity-main

7.7
Score

Kandypens Elite

The Kandypens Elite is the toughest Kandypen yet, featuring a ceramic enamel exterior capable of handling normal wear. This unit also features a dual quartz atomizer and a ceramic plate atomizer which each provide their own unique vapor experience.


aura-vaporizer-main

7.6
Score

Dr. Dabber Aurora

The Dr. Dabber Aurora features 3 atomizers than can be easily swapped between with the units SnapTech magnetic technology. The Aurora comes stock with one dual quartz atomizer, one dual ceramic atomizer, and one ceramic donut atomizer to give you some variety depending on your vaping needs. This unit is marketed as a low temperature wax pen meaning that the flavor of your concentrates will be preserved but exhaled vapor will be less visible. This is great for those who are looking for discreet sessions or the connoisseur who wants to taste the full flavor of their extract.


gravity-main

7.5
Score

Kandypens Gravity

The Kandypens Gravity is a bit of a stop-gap between the Kandypens Galaxy and Elite. It features a dual quartz coil atomizer and a ceramic plate atomizer as well as 4 temperature settings, giving you the ability to customize your vapor session.


source-nail-main

7.4
Score

Source Nail

The Source Nail is a portable e-rig that offers users both wattage and temperature control through the included mod. It is great for the on-the-go connoisseur who demands a rig-like experience. It also comes with a glass dome mouthpiece for a more stealthy session.


source-orb-xl-vaporizer-main

7.4
Score

Source Orb XL

The Source Orb XL is geared towards those who like to live life LARGE. It features a massive triple quartz coil atomizer, a massive 1300mah battery and the classic Source Orb mouthpiece to provide huge clouds of vapor.


apx-main

7.3
Score

Pulsar APX Wax

The Pulsar APX wax is suprising powerful for such a small device. It features an impressive triple quartz coil atomizer to produce punchy and potent draws. This unit is made to hit it and quit it.


galaxy-vaporizer-main_ok

7.2
Score

Kandypens Galaxy

Kandypens have made a name for themselves with their pens being endorsed by celebrities and featured in rap videos. The Kandypens Galaxy includes one dual quartz rod atomizer and 3 temperature settings to provide large clouds of vapor. The dish of the Kandypen is quite deep and you can fit almost a half gram of your favorite concentrate. The design is simple, straight forward and packs a punch with each draw.


Ooze Weeper XL Review

7.1
Score

Ooze Weeper XL

This concentrate vaporizer comes with a bubbler for water filtration. Think of this piece as more of a hybrid of the two. The weeper has one button and the power output is constant. This means that the level of temperature flexibility is zero. The vapor quality leaves a lot of be desired and the manufacturing quality is pretty average.


kandypens-icecream-man

7.1
Score

Kandypens Ice Cream Man

The Kandypens Ice Cream Man was intended to be a sidekick to the Elite, but ends up being more of a colorful update of the Galaxy. It features a dual quartz coil atomizer and 3 temperature settings to provide smooth vapor. Just don’t expect it to do anything different than the Kandypens Galaxy.


magneto-vaporizer-main

7.0
Score

Yocan Magneto

The Yocan Magneto features a unique loading system not seen in any other wax pen. Instead of loading your wax directly to the coil, you use a loading cap, which magnetically snaps on top of your atomizer, perfectly positioning your wax for vaporization.


boundless-cf710-vaporizer-main

6.9
Score

Boundless CF710

The Boundless CF710 is another take on a honey straw. Unlike the Linx Ares which uses a ceramic rod, the CF710 uses exposed coils. The main issue with the CF710 is the amount of wax it uses per session, which for the budget conscious may be seen as wasteful.


yocan-pandon-vaporizer-main

6.9
Score

Yocan Pandon

The Yocan Pandon is a two headed monster of a wax pen. It features 2 dual quartz atomizers giving you some serious quad core action. If you are looking for a rig-style experience in a wax pen, the Pandon will deliver. Our biggest gripe with the Pandon is that it requires a lot of wax in order to achieve impressive draws.


omicron-main

6.8
Score

W9Tech Omicron

The Omicron wax pen features a dual black ceramic coil wrapped with Gr. 2 titanium coils. While this unit does a decent job at delivering vapor, it can get dirty very quickly and has a bad habit of leaking. For the price we would expect a bit more from this unit.


yocan-evolve-vaporizer-main

6.7
Score

Yocan Evolve

The Yocan Evolve is a basic starter wax pen that can pack a punch. It only has a single temperature and one style of atomizer, so it is not the most versatile. Depending on how long you hold the power button, vapor can get harsh.


mini-main

6.6
Score

Kandypens Mini

The Kandypens Mini is a bit of a miss in our opionion. We love other Kandypens units and what they offer, but the Mini features a rehashed design we have seen time and time again. It lacks innovation, creativity, and oh yea, vapor quality.


r2-series-vape-pen-vaporizer-main

6.5
Score

This Thing Rips! StoK R2

The StoK R2 by This Thing Rips does little to set itself apart from the wax world. It features a standard dual coil quartz atomizer mounted on a standard 650mah battery. Our biggest gripe is that this pen features a plastic vapor path, and while it may be cool to look at, we do not trust it in the long run.


linx-ares-lifestyle

6.4
Score

Linx Ares

The Linx Ares wax pen is marketed as a honey straw, which means instead of having to load this wax pen, you dip the exposed heating element directly into your container of wax. This means no more sticky fingers or improper loading.


kind-pen-dream-vaporizer-main

6.3
Score

Kind Pen

The Kind Pen Dream was touted as one of the best wax pens of 2016, but we found it a bit underwhelming. It features a ceramic donut atomizer and a glass mouthpiece to provide pure flavor. However the glass mouthpiece is also this units Achilles heel as it can be quite fragile.


micro-g-main

6.2
Score

G-Pen Micro G Vaporizer

Made by Grenco Science and backed by rap mogul Snoop Dogg, the G-Pen Micro Vaporizer is a more compact version of the original G-Pen Vaporizer. The atomizer design is fairly basic featuring a spiraled stainless steel coil. This unit may have helped pioneer the wax pen industry but since its incarnation better technology has emerged for enjoying concentrates.


g-pen-vaporizer

6.1
Score

G-Pen Vaporizer

The original G-Pen for waxes and concentrates became extremely popular when rap superstar Snoop Dogg began endorsing Grenco Science’s products. The atomizer of this device is fairly simple featuring a single stainless steel coil. While when it was first released it was considered one of the best wax pens available, newer technology has slowly made the G-Pen seem like a dinosaur in comparison. It will certainly get the job done, but lacks the finesse the newer pens available offer.


jesus-piece

6.0
Score

The Game Jesus Piece Wax Pen

Seeing the popularity of Snoop Dogg and his line of G-Pens spawned “The Game” to try and get in on the wax pen action creating the “Jesus Piece”, a flashier take on the classic wax pen style. Just like Snoops’ G-Pens, the Jesus Piece has been left in the dust as new pen designs emerge.


jag

5.8
Score

JAG Pen Vape

Another pen put out by Grenco Science in their infancy, the Jag features a silica wick with a coil wrapped around it. This design has been mostly abandoned by current manufacturers as the silica wick has a tendency to burn and negatively influence the flavor.


cloud2-0

5.7
Score

Cloud 2.0

The Cloud 2.0 is another G-Pen Micro clone, it features a dual ceramic rod atomizer and only 1 temperature setting. Unfortunately, like many clones this unit feels cheap and not well put together and many other better units have since been released that are far more worth your time.


exxus-vaporizer-main

5.4
Score

Exxus Go

The Exxus Go is not quite sure what it wants to be, is it a portable? Is it a stationary? Both? The unit is capable of producing some good vapor with its triple coil atomizer, but the shape and exposed glass parts leave a lot to be desired.
