Dab Pens & Wax Pen Vaporizers
Dab Pens & Wax Pen Vaporizers
Wax dab pens, also called wax vaporizers, are new types of vaporizers. This category of devices includes electronic nectar collectors. They are a modern take on the classic nectar collectors and are an increasingly popular and easy way to consume wax, legal herb concentrates, e-juices, etc.
The Lookah Seahorse and Seahorse Pro are two of the best vape pens for sale today.
These are like electric oil burner pipes or electronic nectar collectors. If you want a smoother hit, try the Seahorse Max vaporizer pen or the Seahorse X all-in-one dab pen, as these have water filtration added. If you prefer the old-school vibes, then check out our range of classic nectar collectors, we have plenty of dab straws to choose from.
We have everything you need to start dabbing on the go with our Lookah vaporizer pens and replacement Lookah Seahorse Pro tips and coils.
Are Dab Pens Better Than Vape Pens?
Dabbing usually delivers a higher potency than vaping herb.
The cannabis extracts used for dabs are more concentrated so for someone who doesn't consume cannabis on a regular basis, the high can be too intense.
However, for others, such as those with high medical needs then dabbing is preferable.
A single dab can deliver the full effect of THC or CBD as multiple hits from a joint or dry herb vape. The more intense effects can provide better relief for patients with severe pain or muscle spasms.
What is a Dab Pen/Wax Vaporizer?
Dabbing vapes are a compact, portable electronic alternative to using dab rigs and dab torches. Because of their portability and convenience, many dabbers and smokers buy vape pens to enjoy their concentrates on the go.
These electronic pen-shaped vaporizers heat up at the press of a button. They use a ceramic or quartz coil or atomizer to vaporize your cannabis wax for quick, hassle-free consumption.
Being able to fit in your pocket means dab pens are ideal for a quick hit wherever you are, perfect for on-the-go dabs!
The best portable dab pens for sale on the market today should be compact, and use a high-quality rechargeable lithium-ion battery and quartz or ceramic coils to provide superior flavor.
How Much is a Dab Pen?
You can buy top-quality dab pen starter kits like the Lookah Seahorse Pro from our online head shop for under $50. The original Seahorse vape pen will set you back just under $40, while the Seahorse Pro vape pen is a little more at $49, which still works out as a cheap dab pen. The Pro and Pro Plus have a glass mouthpiece, and additional accessories allowing you to connect the vape to a water pipe are attractive qualities for the slight price increase. The Seahorse and Seahorse Pro/Pro Plus range of vape devices can be used with 510 carts letting them be used as oil vape pens. The Seahorse Pro and Seahorse Pro Plus dab vaporizer pens can be used with the Seahorse bubbler attachment. This replaces the glass mouthpiece with a glass bubbler to produce smother water-filtered rips. If you want a device for use at home, the Giraffe is a great option as its shape with four legs works as a built-in stand allowing you to place it on a tabletop and operate it with one hand. Perfect for those who lack dexterity in their hands.
At the higher end of the scale, we have the Seahorse Max and Seahorse X. These come with a water filtration chamber and a larger battery. The Seahorse X can be used in many different ways and costs around $180. The Seahorse X brings the best of both worlds as it's a multi-purpose wax vaporizer, e-nail, and all-in-one dabbing device.
The Seahorse and Seahorse Pro Plus vape pens are multi-use devices that allow you to smoke wax concentrate and oil. With the Seahorse pro's 510 thread, you can replace the quartz coil with a 510 oil cartridge, allowing you to smoke from both sides of this vape pen.
With the new second-generation Seahorse 2.0 and Seahorse Pro Plus, you will get more effortless charging through USB Type C and access to the Seahorse type 3 coil, a ceramic honey straw for bigger, fatter dabs.
How to charge a dab vape pen?
The dab vape pens from Lookah all use USB charging leads. The light on the vape device will flash red if it needs charging. To charge the devices connect the smaller end of the mini USB or type C USB lead to the power port on the vape pen. Then connect the other end of the power lead to a USB power port or adapter. You can also use a power bank to charge the vape devices. The input charge is 5V/1A. Please remember to turn off the device while charging and not in use so as to preserve the battery life.
How to Use a Dab Pen?
Dabbing vaporizers are like electronic nectar collectors. You use them by bringing the hot tip into contact with the concentrate which is then vaporized and inhaled through the device.
A wax vape pen is different in that it will typically have a chamber or bucket-like dish that you can put your wax into. The chamber is then heated up and this vaporizes the concentrate creating a vapor that is inhaled, a good example of this is the Seahorse X.
All of the Lookah wax vapes have variable voltage or temperature settings. This allows you to adjust the vaping experience. By increasing or lowering the voltage, the temperature of the heating chamber will be changed. If the wax atomizer gets hotter faster, you will be able to get more significant clouds as more wax will be vaporized. Alternatively, by lowering the voltage and the temperature, you can maintain a purer flavor.
Electronic nectar collectors don't have a wax chamber attachment, so there is no need to load the wax. Just follow these easy steps. (These steps are based on the Seahorse Pro but will work for any of our Seahorse vaping devices.)
- Ensure the vape pen is charged. If the LED light is flashing red, the battery is low and needs charging. The LED will turn cyan when fully charged.
- Turn on the Seahorse series nectar collector by pressing the power button 5 times in quick succession.
- Double press the power button to switch between the temperature settings, from low (blue), through mid (purple), high (white), or preheat.
- The device has two modes: Manual and Session mode.
You can press and hold the power button to heat the coil to the set temperature. When the tip glows and is visibly hot you can start vaping, usually, this takes 3 to 5 seconds.
Press the power button 3 times quickly to start the session mode. The light will flash as the device gets to heat. When the light turns solid you're ready to start vaping.
- Bring the tip of the now hot coil into contact with your concentrate. It is best to angle the tip at a 45-degree angle when bringing it into contact with your chosen wax concentrate. This prevents the tip from picking up too much wax and clogging the airway.
- As the concentrate vaporizes, gently inhale from the mouthpiece pulling the vapor into your mouth and lungs.
- In the Manual Mode Release the power button about halfway through your inhale; the heat will continue to vaporize the wax.
- Repeat steps 4 to 7 as required.
Tips for dabbing with a Seahorse Dab Pen
1. In the manual mode, heat the tip for 3 to 5 seconds to let it get hot before you start dabbing. In the session mode, wait for the light to stop flashing before you start dabbing.
2. Don't dab into a fresh jar of concentrate. Separate a bit off first and put in a separate heatproof container or on a dab tool, then dab using that.
3. It is best to hold the tip at a 45-degree angle when bringing it into contact with your chosen wax concentrate. This prevents the tip from being submerged in the concentrate and picking up to much wax which causes the airway to get clogged.
4. After you start to get some vapor through the mouthpiece, move the tip of the vape pen away from the concentrate and keep heating it intermittently to fully vaporize the dab before applying more concentrate to the tip.
5. The tip of the vape pen will remain hot for a while after it finishes heating, do not touch the tip while it is hot or bring it into contact with any flammable materials.
Lookah Seahorse Pro Tips/Coils
Replacement Seahorse Pro tips are the 510 thread screw-on tips for all the Seahorse vape range. These Tips come in two types. The Lookah Seahorse Coil Ⅰ and the Lookah Seahorse Coil Ⅱ replacement tips are sold in packs of 5. Lookah Seahorse Coil ⅡⅠ comes in packs of 3.
Lookah Seahorse Coil-Ⅰ
This is a quartz replacement tip, so it heats up very fast. It also preserves the best flavor so you
get the richest flavor when dabbing concentrate and can enjoy the full palette of terpenes and flavanoids of your concentrate coming through.
Lookah Seahorse Coil-Ⅱ
This ceramic replacement tip has dual coils and holds the temperature well. It creates excellent vapor clouds and is a little more durable than the quartz tips.
Lookah Seahorse Coil-ⅡⅠ
The type 3 coils are suitable for the Seahorse 2.0, Seahorse Pro 2.0, Seahorse Max, and Seahorse X wax vaporizers. These coils are ceramic straw-like devices with a larger surface area to offer more significant clouds and fatter dabs.
Lookah Seahorse Coil-ⅠV
The type 4 coil is an advancement of the type 1 coil. It has a similar porous quartz tip but this is more robust and durable than the type 1 tip. It also has better airflow.
Lookah Seahorse Coil-V
The type 5 coils come as standard with the Seahorse Pro Plus. This coil will also work on all the other Seahorse vape devices. It is a tube-like straw that is made of clear glass. This means you can see the vaporized wax as it melts and enters the glass. The tip of the straw has a little disc of props quartz. This is heated by two wires and creates the hot dab tip that melts the wax. It is sold in packs of 4 and aims to provide the great flavor of the type 1 coils with the durability of the type 4 coils.
Lookah Seahorse Max
The Seahorse Max is a powerful wax vape pen with water filtration from Lookah. It uses the same ceramic or quartz atomizer tips as the Seahorse and Seahorse Pro but can also be used with the type 3 coils.
Its 950mAh micro USB charged battery has more battery life than the smaller wax vape pens. The addition of a water filtration cone or percolator on the top delivers smooth hits, so even if you're taking massive rips, it will be gentler on the throat.
Do Dab Pens Smell?
A vape pen vaporizes your concentrates so it won't stink up the place anywhere near as much as combusting dry herb like you would when smoking a cigarette or bong. However, the smell will vary depending on the concentrate you use and the number of terpenes contained therein.
