Wax Pens use 510 Thread Vape Carts
There is some confusion as to the difference between a wax pen and a dab pen. We at VapeBatt.com refer to a Wax Pen as any device where the primary functionality is to vaporize a 510 thread vape cart. Wax pens also work with oil vape carts and may have other functionalities as it pertains to vaping wax concentrates. This differs from how we classify dab pens which we interpret to be any vape device built with the primary functionality requires putting concentrate in a chamber. There may be some cross over in terms of functionality as technologies advance, but we look at the primary function of the device.
What to Look for in a good Wax Pen
There are a wide variety of features in wax pens but having a good battery means making sure that a few of these features meet a standard. Vaping wax requires more power and causes greater strain on the devices internal components as it needs to meet a high level of performance on a consistent basis.
- Battery Capacity – Wax pens should have a battery capacity of at least 320mAh and 3.5V. If the battery capacity is lower in either of these two categories, you’re most likely going to have a tough time vaping wax concentrate. A higher capacity battery typically also means that you will have more time before you will need to charge it.
- Manufacturer Reputation – This is arguably more important for dab pens, but you should still do your homework and make sure you are purchasing a device made by a manufacturer that stands behind their product.
- Preheat – Preheat functionality for wax is a good thing to have. Wax is thick and preheat will come in handy to loosen up your concentrate making it easier to vape.
- Variable Voltage – If you plan on switching between wax vape carts and oil vape carts or if you use multiple brands of wax with varying viscosities, you are most likely going to want to, or need to, adjust the power to better align your experience. If you can’t adjust then in some instances, you may find yourself in a situation where you are having trouble vaporizing, burning excess, or creating a less-enjoyable taste.
