MegaToke Brand Review: The Device Bringing Combustion Back
The MegaToke line consists of battery-powered and operated units designed to combust dry herbs and liquids rather than vaporize. As a result, the units available from the brand do not produce vapor. Instead, they have combustion chambers that burn weed like pipes, bongs, or joints, so users inhale smoke. The devices have many characteristics and look like dry herb vaporizers. But they produce vastly different results.

Includes four atomizers in total (2 for herbs, 2 for dabs)
The MegaToke brand is a line of dedicated e-smoking devices that are different from a standard dry herb vaporizer. The MegaToke catalog consists entirely of products that combust weed and concentrate oil rather than using heat to produce an inhalable aerosol common to weed vaporizers.
The company has only four main products, which will be covered and reviewed here. Two of MegaToke’s products are for weed, two for dabs, and other cannabis concentrates, although the two devices for smoking herb come with dual-quartz coil atomizers that support dabbing.
The devices are super-expensive and come with limited cell life. The devices feature removable batteries with external chargers in the kit. Unfortunately, users can not recharge the batteries in the device. And they have no external USB charging port. The units also work with atomizers that are not 510-threaded and not compatible with any other type of device.
The Best MegaToke Products
The brand has a small line of only four leading products. However, many of the company’s units are compatible with other materials, meaning the devices come with atomizers that support dabbing concentrates and other solid or liquid products.
The Dab Oil Reaper from MegaToke is a portable e-nail device. It features a ceramic heating element, a removable and rechargeable cell, and a one-button operation. The device consists of three main components: the battery slot, the atomizer, and the mouthpiece. Like many other items from the brand, the mouthpiece features a silicone attachment. So users can insert it into bongs or other water pipes.
#2 MegaToke DabatokeXL
A Powerful, 2-in-1 Device
9.5/10 Review score
The MegaToke DabatokeXL is a dual-chambered vaporizer. It packs two batteries and two atomizers for users to use herbs or concentrates. The device has an all-metal exterior. It features the same one-button operation typical of all of its e-smokers. The vaporizer also comes outfitted with a silicone sleeve over the mouthpiece to fit into female 10 or 14mm openings on bongs and other water pipes.
#3 MegaToke XL
Take A Toke In Style
9/10 Review score
The MegaToke XL is another 2-in-1 vaporizer designed for use with herbs. But it comes with a dual quartz coil atomizer that supports oils and concentrates. The unit features a dimpled exterior in gold, silver, or gun blue and has a single firing button. The on-demand feature means users only need to press the button to burn the material and inhale it. There is no heat-up time. The vaporizer also features a rechargeable cell and a silicone sleeve to use with water pipes and bongs.
#4 Megatoke Device V2
A Shiny, Electronic One-Hitter
8.5/10 Review score
The Megatoke V2 is an electronic one-hitter device. It features an all-ceramic heating coil for use only with dry herbs. The Megatoke V2 consists of three main components: the battery section, the atomizer, and the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece on the device is all glass. It can be paired with a silicone sleeve to protect from an overheated mouthpiece or inserted the vaporizer into a compatible water pipe or bong.
How To Get Started
Every product in the MegaToke line-up has, more or less, the same functioning and design. Each has an oversized firing button. It creates on-demand fumes meaning the battery heats the heating element to combust the material inside. There are no other switches or controls. The promise of the device is that users do not need to heat their material with lighters or butane torches.
But that seems irrelevant if they are still inhaling only fumes. The devices use a particular battery. It is only compatible with the relevant device. The e-smokers do not have any external or onboard charging ports. But fortunately, the company does include external battery chargers in every kit.
Users need only to disassemble their particular device, attach the atomizer into the connection, load their material into the chamber, and attach the mouthpiece. Once the mouthpiece is attached, they need only press the firing button to burn the material.
Where Are They Sold?
Vapers can buy the devices directly from the manufacturer’s website. Then it is shipped directly to customers over the age of 18. The e-smokers are also available at several online vape retailers or cannabis-related retailers. In addition, the company also ships to several different local vape or smoking-related shops so users can buy them in-store.
How are Customers Treated
MegaToke has an explicit policy of not refunding any of their products, regardless of defective or damaged devices. However, the company does allow for the possibility of exchanges within thirty days of purchase. But customers need to provide supporting documentation or evidence of malfunction.
The warranty for all MegaToke products is also good for thirty days. But only applies to the device’s internal parts and nothing else. Customers may return a defective product. But the company also reserves the right to reject any returns or exchanges.
Regardless of these policies, many customers have expressed their satisfaction with their devices. Still, some have complained about the devices breaking down after only a few uses or the atomizer and coils burning out with only a few uses.
The company uses the USPS for most of its deliveries in the continental US. However, customers can choose to upgrade their delivery choice to a private carrier like FedEx at checkout to receive their product in a shorter period. This preference is, of course, up to the customer. The company does not cover any additional shipping costs.
Pax is an offshoot of Juul makers but for cannabis and cannabis-related products. The line of Pax products runs from their line of dry herb vaporizers, the latest being the Pax 3. Also, they broke into the concentrates market with their prefilled pod device for liquid cannabis, the Pax Era. The devices are hand-held and portable. They do not produce any combustion and are much less expensive than MegaToke devices. In addition, the latest Pax models are Bluetooth compatible. And it can be used with a downloadable app via smartphone.
PuffCo is a company that specializes in concentrates devices that range from the slim and portable, like the PuffCo Plus, to the more advanced, like the PuffCo Peak and PuffCo Peak Pro, which are e-rig devices with several different features. For example, neither of these devices creates a fume but a vapor. The Plus has simple one-button controls and is the size of a large fountain pen. But the Peak and its various versions are more prominent and have one-button controls. Moreover, they are made from high-quality materials like ceramic and quartz.
How does a MegaToke work?
A MegaToke is like a vaporizer but has no temperature control. And it is designed to burn material to create smoke, not vapor. A dry herb vaporizer has some type of temperature modulation that does not burn weed material. The company’s devices have no such control and use a battery to heat a coil that burns all weed material.
Why is MegaToke so expensive?
That is a good question, especially since some of the brand’s devices cost much more than top-of-the-line desktop vaporizers. In addition, the materials and components of the devices are not of better quality than any comparable vaporizer. For example, they do not even have internal batteries, regulator chips, or other components like LEDs or haptic sensors.
How long do MegaToke coils last?
The coils are often made of the same material as popular vaporizers, namely quartz and ceramic. Still, they tend to burn out quicker than other vaping devices because direct heat is applied. A typical coil can last for anywhere between 30-40 hits before it loses its capacity to burn.
How to use MegaToke XL with shatter?
The MegaToke XL supports weed and liquid concentrates. But the liquid concentrates atomizer can also support solid concentrates like shatter. Users can dab a small piece of shatter into the liquid concentrates atomizer and hit it like they would with any other liquid.
How do you clean a Megatoke coil?
The brand’s coils need frequent cleaning to remain in good condition since they produce much more waste than vaporizers like soot and ash from combustion. Users can clean out the coil with a cotton swab dipped in some isopropyl alcohol or tapped out any excess ash and dirt to prolong its life.
Kits include a lot of accessories
Uses rechargeable and removable batteries
Hit really hard
On-demand heating style (no heat-up time)
Short coil duration
A lot of clean-up and maintenance
Conclusion: MegaToke Brand Review: E-Smokers With Style
Have you ever used any of MegaToke’s products? What do you think of the brand’s focus on e-smokers rather than vaporizers? Do you think they are worth the high price? Let us know in the comments section below.
The MegaToke line is small and emphasizes e-smoking devices. They combust weed material rather than vaporize it. Three of its primary devices are dual-use, so users can switch out the atomizer and use weed or liquid concentrates. But why these devices cost so much when they are nothing more than pipes is anyone’s guess.
They have glamorous exteriors and feature many of the same materials used in vaporizers. Still, they produce the same results as a bong, pipe, or rolling paper, and a lighter seems to negate their uniqueness. They are overpriced devices that maybe look great but do nothing that an ordinary one-hitter or pipe could do.
