Dab Nails are an essential to any great session. Heated with a torch or electronic heater coil, they are utilized by when a dab of concentrate or wax material is placed on the surface of the nail, resulting in tasty, potent vapor. There are many types of dab nails, some that go inside of glass joints and need a glass counterpart to be used while other go over the glass joint and require no dome. However, it is designed, Dab Nails allow the user to consume their favorite concentrate or waxy materials easily and efficiently.
Using a Dab Nail is a straight forward and easy process! Once you have your glass piece set up and dab prepared, you’re ready to get started.
First turn on your torch and aim the flame directly on the nails to get the best heat. Keep heating the nail until it begins to turn red-hot.
Once your nail is nice and hot, turn off your torch and if you have a Domed Nail, place the glass dome over the nail. Its recommended to let the nail cool for about 15 to 20 seconds as the surface maybe still too hot for usage.
As your nail cools, take your dabber and apply the dab directly on the nail inside of the dome. At this point you can start to inhale slowly. It is recommended that you rotate the dabber tip on the nail, as it helps to prevent waste.
If you are working with a Domeless Nail the process is the same but a little easier.
First, start by grabbing your favorite wax or concentrate with the dab tool, making sure to get a small amount on the end.
Next heat up the nail with a blowtorch for about 30 to 40 seconds, until the glass or quartz gets red hot.
Wait to use until the nail has reached your desired temperature. Then place the end of the dabber tool into the domeless nail, place the melting wax or concentrate materials into the plate, then cover with a carb cap.
Now you’re ready to take your pull as the nail surface vaporizes the materials.
Simple as that!
Please note eat nails and glass domes are extremely hot in the dabbing process. Remember to take caution when handling them and always wait for all your pieces to cool down before you even think of touching them.
Generally, all nails are used in the same fashion. The main difference between the use are the styles of nails and the way you can utilize them to get great airflow. Depending on the nail type it can also change the quality of dab you end with when you take that inhale. We are going to break down the nail variations, and the differences between Domed and Domeless nails.
The most common staple for the basic oil rig, Domed Nails are typically made of a variety of materials including titanium, ceramic, quartz and cheaper than most domeless nails as they don’t require as much milling attention. Perfect for the solo toker, domed nails like the Sutra DBR Portable ENail Kit by Sutra Vape are a great way to get great clouds. While there are many reasons to use a domed nail, there are a few downsides as well. Domed nails take much longer to heat up and are less simple to dab. Since there is more to the nail itself, it is also more prone to accidents or breaks. Also, what’s more, a domed nail is yet another glass piece you’ll have to clean and maintain, making sure it delivers optimal performance and not to break it all together.
Domed Nails definitely trump over Domeless and hold more heat efficiently, getting the job done. But if done on a regular basis it can result in accidents or extra steps that Domeless Nails cut out.
Domeless Nails are favorite for many users. Like Domed Nails, they’re made of a variety of materials that help you get the most out of your goodies.
A great accessory for both beginners and expert vapers, Domeless Nails like the 2 in 1 Titanium 10mm Domeless Nail by Torpedo are completely easy to use. Unlike like Dome Nails, you can put your materials straight on the nail allowing you to get larger amount of wax or concentrate that can be utilized.
The con to Domeless Nail is that they heat up faster, depending on the thickness of the material and they require use of a carb cap to capture all of the vapor created. A small drawback as carb dabs can be more effective and when dabbed at lower temperatures, result in smoother tastes and feels.
E Nails or electronic nails, typically made of titanium, is what you attach to your banger to provide consistent temperature to perfectly vaporize your materials. Like the Torch Portable Enail by Yocan, E Nails have increased in popularity because they offer an unparalleled efficiency. With an E Nail you don’t need a blowtorch to get the nail hot, and because it is electric you are in control of the temperature. You can pick the exact degree and keep it at the temperature for as long as you want. Rather than guessing and repeatedly using a blowtorch for every dab, E Nails allow you to save time and hit your dabs at the perfect temperature every time.
Quartz Bangers are also known as a go-to choice for nail materials. This is because Quartz Bangers such as the 4mm Quartz Banger Nail provide the best, potent natural flavors, are extremely sturdy and retain heat very well.
Quartz Bangers are typically made of superior quartz crystal and titanium, bring out the terpenes in your dry herb resulting in the user tasting nothing but full-bodied flavor. In a dab ring, the nail is the part responsible for heating the concentrate transforming it then to vapor. Quartz Bangers are great as the nail does not loose temperature between the initial dabbing and when you put on the carb cap. Quartz Nails are resilient, dependable and a great choice for any kind of vaper.
A Carb Cap is a tool designed to be utilized with domeless nails in either titanium or quartz. This lid is used to control the airflow and to seal off the heat from escaping. “Carb” short for carburetor works like a carburetor in a vehicle, controlling the air flow and pressure give in a space.
These convenient tools have a small hole used to maximize airflow to your nail. Like the 3mm Carb Cap, using a carb cap is simple; placing it over a domeless nail, they heat up the oil or concentrate of your choice. Employing the carb on a glass piece, for example, alters the pressure within the pipe, concentrating air flow through the bowl and reducing the temperature needed for combustion. This results in a stronger hit in less time and effort.
Carb Caps are going to offer the user the superior flavor, allowing you to keep the smoke where it belongs, in your glass piece. A Carb Cap will also restrict airflow and help to maintain the nail’s heat.
A Dab Tool or “dabbers” is where you place your concentrates before putting them into a burning hot nail. Most Dab Tools are made of glass, quartz, titanium or ceramic for durable, resilient, and safe use. With this convenient tool like the Wulf Tech Skillet Dab Tool by Wulf Mods, they can touch the hot nail without being damaged and of course without overheating.
When picking out the right Dab Tool, you want one that can easily pick up your concentrates and hold as much wax as you want without falling off the dabber. Higher quality Dab Tools provides enough surface space to securely hold a dab.
A Nectar Collector is a type of dabbing piece featuring a slender, straight tube design resembling an everyday straw. Made specifically for your waxes and oils, Nectar Collectors are made up of a neck, body and tip. Typically, these tools are made of glass or silicone and the tips are made of either titanium, quartz or ceramic for optimal performance. Nectar Collectors are used by one end touching the glass while you inhale from the other end. The neck is detachable so you can easily clean it as well as pack away for traveling.
Typically, Collectors like the DNA Xtract Nectar Collector, will employ a plastic keck clip that is used to secure the two pieces together while using. In the middle of the Nectar Collector is the main body which houses the percolator, which cools the vapor down before reaching your mouth.
Nectar Collectors are a great way to enjoy your favorite concentrates as opposed to using a traditional bong or dab rig. They vaporizer your materials giving you potent, flavorful draws on each intake. In a class entirely of their own these Collectors combine top performance and portability all in one. Ensuring that none of your concentrate goes wasted, Nectar Collectors are a great way to easily control and monitor your concentrate intake.
Known to preserve the natural flavors of the concentrate or wax, Ceramic Nails like the Male Ceramic Domeless Nail by Torpedo, are the perfect choice for the flavor chasers in the group. Made of ceramic, these nails are resilient and can hold heat very well. One drawback to Ceramic Nails is they can be very fragile. When using these nails you have to be careful as they are known to break at first accident, definitely not a great choice for the clumsy.
Titanium, or the Iron Man of nail materials, are the most durable of the bunch. Like the Dart Direct Inject Titanium Domeless Nail by Torpedo, compared to other materials, Titanium Nails are a much better candidate for those looking for less design and aesthetic; and more durability. It is extremely strong and hardly ever breaks, resulting in long usage.
When you heat your nail, Titanium will be able to retain much more heat and for a longer period of time that your average nail.
Universal or Interchangeable Nails such as the 2 in 1 Titanium 10mm Domeless Nail by Torpedo, allows you to use your favorite nails on a multitude of different pieces. To use all you would have to do is unscrew or take apart and put the nail back together with a stem of any size- which allows Domeless Nails to be compatible with a variety of dab rigs and stem sizes.
Dab Nails are an essential pairing to unbelievable sessions. Allowing you to get the most out of every draw, they help to deliver flavorful, refreshing inhales that are sure to brighten your day. Dab Nails come in a variety of styles catering to every preference.
