I enjoy being exposed to new products, which I am sure you do too, and the world of dabbing has been astonishing over the past few years.
Recently, the electronic nail has caught my attention more than ever and I wanted to share this wonderful gizmo with our readers.
You will hear the word, “preference”, a lot reading my posts.
The reason for this is because almost everything that has to do with smoking, or vaporizing is entirely up to what YOU prefer.
What dab nail should you get? What concentrate rig should you get? Should you go with dome or domeless? What temperature is best for vaporizing? Ect. Ect. Ect…
I can’t answer these questions for you, but I can help by providing some valuable insight from my experiences to help you get a good start.
So today, let’s discuss electronic nails.
Woah! Did you take that dab without using a torch?
The electronic nail (or more frequently used, e-nail) is a electronically heated device that heats up your nail for vaporizing concentrates.
Doesn’t sound that fascinating, you say?
Well the conventional dab nails before the invention of the electronic nail have to be heated using butane-filled, hand-torches. Kinda dangerous…especially if you suffer from arthritis in your hands or happen to have smaller children in the house.
While there are a few good models of handheld butane torches, danger isn’t even the top concern that most dabbers complain about. It’s the fact that their dabs don’t maintain the concentrate flavor. With e-nails, those worries are gone.
The e-nail comes with a handy temperature control and a heating coil. The coil is what heats up your choice of dab nail. You can get a constant temperature, which allows you to have a constant taste of your desired flavor from the dab itself… Magical. When you are dabbing, you want a continuous heat that ranges between 600 to 800° F if you are using larger dabs. *710 is a great temperature to start at.
The Benefits are Endless!
Imagine you have a group of your closest friends gathered together.
Just turn this wonderful contraption to your preferred temperature.
Have everyone prepare a dab for themselves.
On your marks..get set..GO!
Everyone can now take a dab without stopping to heat the nail up countless times.
Amazing for parties and hangouts!
In fact, one of the biggest reasons e-nails even hit the market, was because dispensaries and head shops needed to have a quick way for people to dab instantly at large events with thousands of people.
People like options. The E-Nail gives you customizable heating options.
You have the ability to adjust the settings of temperature with the turn of a dial or push of a button. You can literally set it and forget it!
Other experienced dabbers, like myself, understand the pain of heating the dab nail after each hit and not knowing for sure what temperature we were vaporizing at. Getting the nail too hot can destroy taste and waste concentrate.

But how could I afford something so expensive?
The price range tends to be barely $200-$299, depending on where you get it and the quality of the electronic nail.
Let’s just say that you dab everyday and you go through a $8.00 can of butane in a month (and these are prices on the low end).
Over 12 months – that’s almost $100.00 you could have saved on butane. That’s the price you have to pay just to heat up your nail for a year as a regular dabber.
By saving just $20-25 each month, you can afford even a high end e-nail model in just 12 months AND you’ll be able to customize your heat settings according to your personal preferences and have dabs ready for all your friends at the drop of a dime.
Who Is the E-Nail For?
Those tired of working with butane & buying refills
Those who are daily dabbers
Those who prefer quality concentrate flavor
Those who regularly vape with others
Parties, dispensaries, events
There may be lower priced electric nails but I wouldn’t suggest them because quality always comes first.
Always remember that when dabbing.
Imagine all of the money you will save!
You will no longer be forced to buy cheap hand torches and countless cans of butane.
The first time I tried an E-Nail, I was astounded. In awe. It was love at first site.
Enough about me though.
