Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer — First Impressions


Dr. Dabber Ghost review

The Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer is a very portable device, easy to pocket or keep in a purse. When holding it, users will be impressed by the overall quality of the unit. From the logo on the button to the engraving at the bottom end, the beautiful textured finish, and the overall robustness of the unit. Everything is sleek, clean, and the attention to detail is exquisite. Even if it only costs $85, one might mistake it for a much more expensive vaporizer.

Build Quality

The device is well-built all around. All parts are machined well, with everything fitting perfectly. The button does not rattle and gives a nice tactile feel. The finish is perfect without any blemishes, and the overall build looks like it can take a beating. The only thing that may bother users though is the plastic mouthpiece. While it is made from high-quality material, some users feel it taints the flavor somewhat. However, this is just a minor quirk and doesn’t take away from the fact that the Dr. Dabber Ghost is a well-made, quality product.

What’s in the Box

Users who buy the Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer Kit will get one battery, one Ghost wax atomizer, one Ghost attachment, one mouthpiece, one wax storage container, one dab tool, one USB charger, and an instruction manual.

Vaping Experience With Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer


Using the Ghost is very straightforward. One simply pours a few drops of oil or dabs some wax on the heating coil, press the fire button, and inhale through the mouthpiece. There are no temperature settings, no fans, no waiting for heat-up times, and other rituals one must do like with a desktop vaporizer. With the Ghost vape pen, vaping is simplified.

Users can shut off the device by clicking on the button five times to avoid misfires, especially if the device is in one’s pocket. To turn it on again, one just clicks the button another five times. A simple yet elegant solution.

Some users might not like the plastic mouthpiece, however. They say it taints the taste and doesn’t feel right. While the taste is far from tainted, it would be nice to see a stainless steel mouthpiece. However, this is not an issue as the performance overall is not affected by the mouthpiece whatsoever.

Vapor Production and Performance

Those who use the Ghost vaporizer are usually surprised at how well the thing performs. Vapor production is top-notch with a clean taste and clouds of vapor. The high quality of the coil and the low heat combine to keep vapor smooth and tasty.

There is also no heat up times. The moment one presses the button, users can inhale vapor right away. However, it is best to let the coils heat up for about two seconds, not much, but just to ensure consistent vapor. Vape pens usually suffer from performance issues, but the Ghost does not have any of these. It performs excellently. Arguably better than other vape pens in its price range.

Battery Life and Atomizers

The battery life of the Ghost is superb, rated to last about 400 puffs. Actual usage puts the number around 200-300, depending on how one vapes. Even though, this is still a good showing, easily lasting users a couple of days before needing to recharge. When not in use, the battery holds its charge well, not draining significant power.

Recharging takes about two hours, and since it comes with a USB charging cord, users can charge anywhere there is a USB outlet. This is very useful for those who plan to take the Ghost on long trips. One simply plugs it in a car adapter or a USB power bank, and you’ve got power on-the-go.

The atomizer, on the other hand, is what the device is all about. The coil itself is made of high resistance titanium, which will last users a long time before needing replacement. The wick is made of high-quality silica as well. Silica usually gives a bad taste when new, but with the Ghost, this does not seem to be the case. Out of the box, the vapor from the device tastes clean and pure.

Although there are no temperature controls, like in powerful box mods, the Ghost delivers optimum heat to give users a smooth, clean vape. This is because the device operates at a lower temperature, compared to other vape pens. This is designed to avoid charring the material and prolong the life of the coils as well. More importantly, the flavor is much more pronounced since it is not burned too much.

The kit provides two atomizers, which is great. This gives users a spare when the first one finally dies out. For those who wish to see what happens to their material, Dr. Dabber has a glass globe attachment available for purchase. While the idea is not unique since other vape pens also offer this option, the one from Dr. Dabber is made of high-grade glass and performs well.

Pros & Cons

The Positives

  • This vaporizer is very easy to conceal due to it’s small size
  • Titanium atomizer allows for huge cloud production
  • Temperature is very well regulated
  • Very rapid heat-up time, the Ghost is ready to hit in under five seconds
  • The battery life on the Ghost is above average for a pen style vaporizer

The Negatives

  • The wick style atomizer occasionally will combust your concentrates


For a vape pen, the Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer shines. It may well be the best in its class. The vapor from it is fantastic, the build quality is superb, and the battery life is top-notch. It is super to easy to use as well, making it a great first vaporizer for the beginner, and the perfect backup stealth option for advanced users.

The only downside may be the plastic mouthpiece, which is only a matter of taste. Particularly for users who prefer stainless steel mouthpieces over plastic ones. However, the mouthpiece does not affect the excellent performance of the device, so this is a non-issue.

Users who want a reliable, pocketable vaporizer that performs far better than what others can provide, the Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer is a unit you should not pass up.
