Portable Electric Dab Rigs
Electric Dab Rigs
Electric dab rigs, also called E-rigs, are among the newest wax vaporizers. These devices use electricity to heat and vaporize wax, oil, and other legal concentrates in atomizers rather than the traditional dab method with a butane torch and oil rig.
Dabbing has come a long way from the borosilicate glass water rigs, quartz bangers, dab nails, carb caps, and torches that dabbers are so accustomed to using. While many still love the classic glass dab rigs that Lookah is so well known for, others are eager to try the latest dabbing convenience.
You don't have to choose between glass dab rigs or e-rigs, you can have both, and each can fulfill a different dabbing need.
What is an Electronic dab rig?
The term electronic dab rig got coined when describing a traditional dab rig that used an electronic nail or enail. This enail was attached to the glass pipe and used to heat and vaporize the concentrate. This first generation of electric nail dab rigs were mains powered and rather large devices, which restricted how and where you could use them. As they evolved to battery-powered devices, the Enail became a distinct product range. The Lookah Q7 and Q8 dab vaporizers are good examples of enails.
The miniaturization of enails gave rise to a new generation of e-rigs, an electric bong for concentrate connoisseurs.
These new all-in-one handheld dab rigs include the Puffco Peak, Carta vape rig, Kandypen Oura, and Boost Evo. Now we can add the Lookah Unicorn to this list. Unlike other e-rigs, the Unicorn has a different design, putting the atomizer at the center of our device for a direct airflow and maximum flavor.
These electronic dab rigs still come with glass chambers and pecs that use water to filter your dabs. Still, these new generation e-rigs are mini dab rigs with a difference. They use electricity rather than a torch to heat up and vape your concentrates of choice and are much more robust and portable than a traditional dab rig.
How Do E-rigs Work?
E-rigs have e a built-in battery that provides the electricity needed to heat an element known as a coil or atomizer. The herb concentrate is added to the atomizer cup, turning it into vapor as heat is applied. The cup aligns to a percolator. As the dabber inhales on the mouthpiece, the vapor is drawn into the percolator. The percolator filtered the vapor through water before arriving at the mouth of the dabber.
What are the Advantages of an E-rig?
Electronic dab rigs are incredibly convenient to use.
Most electric dab rigs have a glass percolator but the rest of the device is made from some form of plastic or silicone. This makes them more robust than an all-glass water pipe.
They are smaller and sturdier than a traditional glass dab rig making them perfect for dabbing on the go.
These cool electric dab kits have preset temperatures, which takes the guesswork out of heating a banger with a butane torch. They are safer to use than a traditional dab with less risk of burning yourself because they use electricity rather than a torch. As less equipment is needed traveling with an erig is much easier than taking a glass dab rig with you places.

Taking your dabbing to the next level, this is the best portable electric dab kit to hit the market in 2020. It's available in standard colors as well as a limited-edition selection.
How to Use an Electric Dab Rig
These instructions on based on the Lookah Unicorn E-rig. While the style may be slightly different from other dab rigs such as the Pulsar Rok, Dr Dabber Boost Evo, V-Carta and Puffco Peak the same steps of cold starts apply to many e-rigs.
1. Lift the magnetic top off and add a small dab (0.1-0.2g ) of concentrate into the chamber/coil.
2. Add just enough water to the glass chamber to cover the percolation holes.
3. Replace the magnetic top.
4. Press the On/Off Power button 5 times to turn on the device.
5. Press the power button 2 times to set the power level.
6. Chose the dabbing mode.
The quartz hive coil is best used in manual mode.
The quartz cup coil is best used in auto mode.
7. Start dabbing.
In the manual mode, press and hold the power button to use the device. On the first use, wait 5-10 seconds for the coil to heat up before vaping.
In the auto mode, press the power button 3 times to start pre-heating. Once the light turns solid, and the device vibrates, you can start dabbing.
