Wax atomizers are for vaping wax and oil concentrates. The atomizers use a coil system to create vapor. They can also use a flat, disc-shaped heating element as its atomizer. The heating elements usually consist of quartz, stainless steel, or ceramic. Wax atomizers are interchangeable. They have 510-threading so they can work with other batteries and mods. Atomizers for wax also work with box mods at low-wattage to vape wax and oil.
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.
Top Wax Atomizers
#1 Brain Fogger Wax Atomizer Pen Tank
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.
- Advanced stack coil technology for superior vaping
- Compatible with any 510 threaded e-cigarette
- Eye-catching design
- Good price at $34.95
- Glass mouthpiece can become hot
- Predominantly glass tank leaves it vulnerable to damage
#2 H10 Ceramic Cell 510 Oil Dab Cartridge for Vape Pen C4CELL
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.
- Extremely compact/discreet
- Performs much better than typical tanks of its size
- Only $8.99
- Small size means less cloud and flavor
- Compatible pen-style batteries are cheap
#3 Canna-Blast Vape Tank Atomizer for 510 Vape Pens
With a 1.2ohm coil designed to work at 4.2 volts – the highest voltage possible for these devices – users can expect deceptively good performance from a tank that looks so basic.
- Works at high voltage
- Simple design
- Easy to use
- Only $9.95
- Will not generate heavy cloud or flavor
#4 Green Bullet Wax Mini Atomizer Dab Pen 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.
- Sleek design
- Good cloud production
- Effective wax delivery
- Only costs $9.95
- Prone to leaking
#5 Pulsar APX W Atomizer Tank
Designed to work with the Pulsar APX Wax vaporizer, this tank comes equipped triple quartz coil and durable ceramic heating chamber.
The tank and mouthpiece are made almost entirely of glass. While this adds to the aesthetic, mouthpiece heat can be an issue, not to mention the increased likelihood of accidental breakage.
Regardless, this tank definitely deserves mentioning due to its high performance, superb quality and $27.99 price tag.
- High-performance triple quartz coil
- Attractive design
- Includes dab tool and replacement O-rings
- Very cheap at $27.99
- Glass mouthpiece could become hot
- Exterior is more vulnerable to damage
#6 G Slim Quartz Concentrate Tank
Originally designed for the G Slim Quartz, this 510 threaded tank is designed to create large clouds and bold flavor by vaporizing the wax slowly and at low heat. Thanks to its glass vapor path, no aromas are lost in the process.
However, it reputably has a tendency to break. Users should treat it with extra care to avoid damage.
- Backed by one of the most innovative companies in the business
- Small and discreet
- Strong flavor thanks to glass vapor path
- Large clouds for a tank of its size
- Very cheap at $9.95
- Breaks easily
Health Benefits of a Wax Atomizer
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.
A wax tank also happens to be one of the cleanest and safest ways to use wax. While methods like dabbing bring users dangerously close to a heat source, regulated mods offer a degree of protection not afforded by more established methods.
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. Vapor Nation, for instance, is a diverse 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.
