The Atmos Studio Rig is a portable dab rig designed to operate with mods and other types of batteries. With this rig, the user can switch between different heating chambers, notably a titanium nail chamber and a ceramic heating chamber for dry herbs.

Each draw is smooth and filled with flavor because of the glass attachment that cools down the vapor. This vaporizer is highly versatile and is made from materials of the best quality. These characteristics make it one of the most desirable dabbing rigs on the market.

Opening the Starter Kit

The kit comes with a glass bubbler, connector attachment, magnetic cap and packing tool, and a user manual. Additionally, two chambers are included for dry herbs and waxes.

Internal Build Quality and Design

The Atmos Studio was incorporated with several features that significantly improve the vaping experience. For one, the studio rig attachment uses a patented spring-loaded connection on both sides of the base. The spring-loaded connection ensures a tight and secure fit to the battery. Also, the cap magnetically seals for a secure fit. Another feature dappers will like about this set-up is that it has an anodized, scratch-resistant surface.

Atmos Studio Rig Attachment and Bubbler

The glass section of the rig is a glass tube that fits onto the connector base. The seal between the connector base and the glass is tight, and there is no wiggling or play. The glass section needs to have a little bit of water in it before vaping. The water pours in at the top, and it collects at the bottom. The glass section is designed to be portable. Therefore, it is light and moderately sturdy. Still, it is glass, so use caution when transporting the rig. It would be best to buy a case for the rig.

The centerpiece of this set-up is the chamber connector attachment. The heating chambers fit the Studio Rig attachment perfectly and mount securely to the vaporizer. Additionally, the sides are adorned with surface cooling ribs that prevent the connection from getting too hot.

Atmos 510 Studio Rig Heating Chambers

The rig comes with titanium and ceramic heating chambers. They have an embedded ceramic heating pin, solder-free composition, and the connection to the connector is spring-loaded. Furthermore, the heating chambers have a resistance of 0.4 ohms.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The glass section is cleaned by soaking it in soapy water for several hours. Afterward, wipe it down with a rag until it is dry. The titanium nail chamber is also cleaned with soapy water, or with a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol. Clean the inside of the heating chamber by emptying the herb or wiping out the wax residue with an isopropyl alcohol soaked cotton swab. Use isopropyl alcohol for cleaning the chamber connector attachment, as well.

How to Use the Atmos Studio Rig

Before using the rig, the chamber nail has to be broken in. If this is not done, the taste will be off for as long as it is used. Break the nail in by heating it to the highest temperature and putting a small amount of wax on it. Burn the wax until there is no more left, and then let it cool down. Repeat this process four times. When this is done, it is time to choose between waxes and herbs.

Waxes

First, put the nail into the connector, and then put the connector into the 510 battery connection. Next, fill up the glass with water, and then attach it to the nail. Once this is done, choose the voltage or temperature, and then put the wax in the heating chamber. Finally, place the carb cap over the cover and inhale.

Herbs

The steps are mostly the same as above. Screw the nail into the connector and then attach it to the 510 connection. Next, fill the glass with water, connect it to the nail, and then place the herbs in the chamber. Cover the chamber with the carb cap, and then choose the temperature. When the herbs are heated, inhale the vapor.

Performance and Vapor Quality

The vapor quality is surprisingly good. Most of the time, it seems that quartz nails outperform titanium nails when vaping waxes, but that was not the case with the Studio Rig. The flavor of the waxes was excellent when using the titanium nail, heating up quickly, and producing high-quality vapor. The breaking-in process improves the taste by many magnitudes. The sweet spot for waxes is between 5 and 25 watts. When vaping dab, start at the lowest setting and gradually increase it.

Heating dry herbs with this device is tricky, but it can be done. Just make sure the herbs do not get too hot, or else they will combust. Making sure the herbs do not burn is difficult if the mod to which it is attached does not monitor the temperature in degrees. If the temperature is measured in volts or watts, start with the lowest setting and carefully increase it. When the right temperature is found, the vaping experience is similar to that of a water pipe. Overall, this is a solid rig for dry herb vaping.

Competing Products

Atmos Studio vs. Mig Vapor - Mig Rig

What separates these two devices is that the Mig Rig comes with everything needed to start vaping, including the battery. The Studio Rig kit does not come with a battery. Also, the Mig Rig comes with a stand, decreasing the likelihood of it tipping over.

All of these features make the Mig Rig a superior kit for dabbing and vaping dry herbs. However, the Studio Rig is less expensive, even when the mod’s price is taken into account.

Atmos Studio vs. KandyPens Oura

The KandyPens Oura is a state of the art device for vaping waxes. It has a robust internal battery, quartz and ceramic atomizers, and four temperature settings.

Unfortunately, it is not compatible with dry herbs. Fortunately, however, the Studio Rig is compatible with waxes and dry herbs. Additionally, the Studio Rig is significantly less expensive than the KandyPens Oura.

Positives and Negatives

The Positives

  • Portable and easy to use
  • Kit comes with a ceramic and titanium nail
  • Maintenance and cleaning is straight forward

The Negatives

  • Battery sold separately
  • Does not heat herbs as well as waxes

Last Word on the Atmos Studio Rig

The Studio Rig was a pleasant surprise in terms of flavor and vaping production. Some devices that use titanium nails do not produce high-quality flavor, but this one does, so long as the nail is broken in properly. Also, it can vape herbs and waxes and comes with a ceramic nail, giving it an edge over other products in terms of versatility.

The only problem with this kit is that it does not come with a battery. It would be nice if Atmos would create a complete starter kit that includes a battery. Also, using this device with dry herbs is not very intuitive. Other than that, this is a grand device that is worth buying.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
