Best E-Nails and E-Rigs in 2020

Definition of E-Nail

An electronic nail usually referred to as e-nail, is a unit that consists of a controller box that delivers the heat with the help of the coil that is in direct contact with the nail. The simple technology of the e-nail controlling the temperature that gets to the nail and enables the user to regulate temperature simply with a hit of one button.

E-nails have been available on the market for a few years already. However, they have been too expensive and hard to find until recently.

It is crucially important to achieve temperature consistency when dabbing cannabis concentrates. If the temperature is too cold, there will be next to no vapor, due to the dab pulling at the base of the nail. If the temperature is too hot, the taste of the vapor will be awful, and you will get a flavor of plastic with carbon. No one wants that, right?

One of the most popular dabber nail heating mechanisms that helped to achieve optimal temperature was a butane torch. Torches heat the nails perfectly, but there is another problem with them: they don’t manage to keep the temperature consistent.

This way, a dabber is forced to wait and try to avoid the wrong temperature each time. This experience is far from being pleasant. A new device, called an e-nail, is meant to solve this problem. It harnesses electricity and provides excellent dab each time in any case.

E-Nail Use

E-nails are used to switch on the unit and set the needed temperature. After this, a user can simply wait until the unit indicates that the required temperature is reached.

The best thing about e-nails is that you don’t have to worry about any heat variations. With an e-nail, a dabber obtains more control over the device. E-nail dab provides better vaping experience to the user.

The Perks of Using E-Nails

E-nails have many more benefits aside from temperature control. First of all, they empower you not to rely on butane. Even though butane is a very popular material you can find easily in most cases, electricity is far more reliable and easy to find. For this reason, many users prefer electricity to refined butane.

Another benefit of electric dab nails is that they can last several hours while consuming very little power. If you have ever been to a cannabis festival, you must have noticed vendors offering samples with a dab rig/e-nail device. Currently, no other device, including a torch, can handle such an overwhelming amount of dabs in such a short time.

Hidden Threats of E-Nail Dabbing

Despite the fact that the e-nail is a great product, we do not recommend it to each and all. This device can cause much harm in the hands of an unskilled user. Remember that an electric nail dab can harness enormously high temperatures, up to 1000 degrees F and even more.

Even if you are an experienced electric nail dabber user, we recommend you to be careful with your device at all times. Do not leave it unattended around children or animals, as well as around people who are not aware of how to use the given device correctly and safely.

Potentially, an electric dabber is a hazardous object that should be used cautiously outside. It should not be used around any other flammables, even torches.

So, if you have an electric dab rig, you should use it as intended at all times and avoid situations when it can potentially cause any threat to you, people and pets around you, or the environment.

One more factor that makes e-nails popular is their portability. Of course, most of the vaping devices are easy to carry around, but the majority of them are restricted to electrical outlets. This way, they will be of next to no use if you are far from the electricity for a long time.

Even though portable e-nails have become much more affordable recently, they are still not cheap. The cheapest electronic nail you can find will be around $150, but it won’t be a high-quality device. High-quality e-nails can cost around $700, with the top models reaching far beyond a thousand dollars.

The best models have the best temperature control and boast of the best consistency. Regardless of the high price, e-nails can be a good investment, because due to their quality they will last a long time.

If you still doubt whether e-nails are worth buying, let us give you some more ideas. Of course, a choice of any product is a matter of personal choice. We recommend e-nail dab rigs to everyone who enjoys dabbing cannabis concentrates. Still, the cost of butane concentrates will be much higher than the cost of any portable electric dab rig that you need to buy only once.

E-rigs are a good choice for dabbers who enjoy socializing. They are great for tasting stations at festivals as well. All in all, they are the best devices for reaching and keeping optimal temperatures as well. However, they can be potentially dangerous and should be used with caution at any time. For a safe choice, we suggest that you buy yourself a torch first and then transfer to an e-nail over time.
