Wax atomizers for dabs, concentrates and oils can vary in their design and build material to offer different vaping experiences. Wax atomizers exist separate from typical wax and dry herb vaporizers as they can be interchanged among different battery types and styles. They can also feature more complex and hard-hitting heating elements that regular tanks and atomizers do not offer.

Some people that love to vape, really get into the ritual aspect of it. From loading to drawing, the Muad-Dib gives vapers a certain panache. It may be interesting enough to qualify as a conversation piece, but it is the quality of the vape that counts more than anything.
It is made for high quality concentrates, which right there sets it apart from other vape mods that will take any old e-juice or wax.
It also needs a little more involvement in the loading and drawing, so it is not meant to be stealth or discreet.
In fact, it is the opposite of discreet as it will draw some attention and probably have people asking about it.
Advanced stack coil technology for superior vaping
Compatible with any 510 threaded e-cigarette
Good price at $34.95
Glass mouthpiece can become hot
Predominantly glass tank leaves it vulnerable to damage
It is impossible to choose a list of the best wax devices without examining a wax vaporizer tank from Mig Vapor. This company’s huge selection of dry herb and concentrate products makes it a top choice for amateurs and experts alike.
Unlike many e-cigarette companies, Mig Vapor was founded by people with electric engineering backgrounds. This allowed them to troubleshoot existing design flaws in the market and create expertly-crafted products. This resulted in many quality items, including the Brain Fogger Wax Atomizer Pen Tank.
The tank uses a reverse-stacked coil design. This means that the wax is melted at the top of the coil, then drips down to be vaporized. Thanks to this mechanism, Mig is able to pack the performance of a professional concentrate vape into a 510 threaded tank.
Compatible with any standard 510 threaded e-cigarette or box mod, this accessory makes wax vaping easy, convenient and effective.
The HoneyStick Extreme wax atomizer features a stainless steel body and triple quartz rods. The Extreme comes with two atomizer styles, though, so it caters both to vapers who want huge clouds and intense flavor. The second atomizer attachment is a flat, ceramic “donut” that heats up gradually to extract the most flavor.
While there is a second atomizer attachment, the chamber of both is all-ceramic. There is a small glass section between the crucible and the mouthpiece that acts as a cooling chamber, so vapers do not get such a harsh hit. The Extreme is also a 510 wax atomizer so it can connect to any 510-mod. The HoneyStick Extreme can handle anywhere between 13 and 38W.
Vapers who love ceramic heating chambers will like this vape. The ceramic chamber produces flavorful vapor of unsurpassed quality. Additionally, it is powered by a strong 1,100 mah battery that can last 10 to 15 sessions before it needs to be recharged. The battery takes two to four hours to fully charge.
The best thing about the Stinger is that it handles thick oils and concentrates better than most devices, transforming them into a tasty stream of warm vapor. The mouthpiece is protected by a mesh screen, which prevents foreign materials from getting inside.
A dependable design with a sleek twist, the Green Bullet Wax Mini Atomizer Dab Pen Tank looks more like some alien tool than a wax vape tank.
This atomizer is designed to work on an OVP battery, but can also be used with a Canna Blast battery via the battery’s included adapter.
Despite its size, this tank does a surprisingly good at generating clouds and delivering a good hit of concentrate. The only downside appears to be its tendency to leak when filled beyond a certain point. Users should avoid filling it to capacity if they wish to prevent leaking.
Performs much better than typical tanks of its size
Small size means less cloud and flavor
Compatible pen-style batteries are cheap
Unsurprisingly, Mig Vapor makes the list once more with another 510 wax atomizer; however, this one is far from complex. In fact, one look at the H10 show it has been designed after the most basic (usually disposable) vape cartridges on the market.
Of course, Mig does not settle for the bare minimum. Although simple on the outside, these cartridges are not only refillable, but also have 2mm wicking holes that allow them to soak in thicker oils. Normally users would have to invest in something larger to get that kind of performance.
Overall, this tank may not be state-of-the-art compared to other products, but it more than gets the job done when dealing with tiny wax pen atomizers – not bad for just $8.99.
When used properly, wax does have some advantages. Most notably, it leaves behind much less tar and residue. Herb smokers who use pipes or vaporizers will often notice black buildup over time. What they may not realize is that the same material takes up residence in their lungs. Although much of it is expelled through coughing, it still can pose a problem over time. Wax concentrates remove contaminants and impurities, leaving behind clean THC.
Waxes are much more complex than simple dry herb. The equipment and dosing require a whole new level of expertise. New cannabis users should never try wax concentrates until they are used to the much milder herb option. Those thinking about “graduating” to wax or other concentrates need to consult their dispensary or online supplier for detailed instructions.
Where Can Consumers Buy a Wax Vape Atomizer?
Due to the increasing popularity of both waxes and e-cigarettes, wax vape atomizers are easy to find. They are a common product in some marijuana dispensaries; however, these can be found online in abundance. There are both brick and mortar offline vape shops and online stores that are one-stop-shop for wax vape tanks, parts and accessories.
A wax atomizer tank is only as good as the product inside it. The way concentrates are extracted makes a big difference in their overall quality. Customers looking for the purest waxes need to purchase ones that have been obtained through CO2 extraction (equipment pictured above). Put simply, this process uses pressurized carbon dioxide to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes, leaving behind a concentrate that is free of contaminants.
Things to Remember When Using a Wax Atomizer
Clean it regularly – residue does eventually build up (albeit not as quickly as with dry herb), and can ruin the atomizer.
Do not exceed the recommended wattage. Doing so could cause the concentrate to burn, or even combust. Refer to the instructions for specific details.
Start small. Begin with a tiny amount of concentrate and move up from there. Wax delivers a powerful hit, especially in large, high-performance tanks. Exceeding the tolerable limit will ruin the overall experience.
With all of the products available, it is difficult to objectively determine the best atomizer for wax. Considering the diverse nature of user needs, design variations and brands, the “perfect” device for one person could be a terrible choice for someone else. Nonetheless, the above list provides access to a well-rounded set of options for new and advanced users alike.

Being a regular Sweden student, I discovered innovative ways of living healthier. And with my very first e-cigarette, I’ve got obsessed with all things digital. So vaping collided my interests in electronics, science, and health. I enjoy bringing people into the world of vaping through my reviews, guides, and best-of lists.
