How to Use an Electric Dab Rig

If you want consistent heat for dabs, an electric dab rig is a way to go. It’s easy to set up and simple to use. Once you set up your preferred temperature, your e-rig will keep it at that level. There’s also no second-guessing the temp because you’ll see it immediately on the LED display. Here’s how to use your e-rig.

Step 1: Set up

Place all the things that you need on a sturdy, stable surface. Make sure that the surface is solid and not flammable in case you accidentally tip over your electric dab rig. You should have your nail, electric unit, and plug ready. The dab rig should also be filled with the right water level. Your carb cap and dabber should be clean and within reach.

  1. Take your e-nail and unscrew the top. Insert the top inside the coil of your e-nail system and screw the head back on.
  2. Attach the e-nail to your dab rig. If you want, you can wrap the coil around the dab rig to secure it.
  3. Attach the coil and the power cord to the unit and plug it in.
  4. Turn it on and use the up and down buttons to set it to the right temperature. Generally, it takes about 1-2 minutes for the e-nail to hit that temperature mark.

Step 2: Season the e-nail (if using the e-rig for the first time)

E-nails, especially titanium, should be seasoned to get the best flavor out of your dabs.

  1. Turn on the e-nail and set it to 750.
  2. Get low-grade oil or concentrate.
  3. Once the temperature is set, use your dabbing tool to take a dab of your concentrate.
  4. Apply it to the e-nail, swirling the concentrate around so that every surface is covered.

Step 3: Using the e-rig

  1. Set the preferred temperature for dabbing.
    1. Low temp dab: heat the nail to 800°F. Once it reaches that temperature, lower the heat level to 350°F-400°F.
    2. Medium temp dab: 450°F-600°F
    3. High temp dab: 600°F-850°F (although some will go for as high as 900°F, but that is burning hot)
  2. Once you get the right temperature, pick up your preferred dab size using your dab tool
  3. Pull through the mouthpiece and apply the concentrate on the dome of your e-nail.
  4. Cover the dome with the carb cap and inhale.

Electric Dab Rig Maintenance

How to clean an electric dab rig is just as important lesson as to how to use it. Make sure you are keeping your E-rig clean in order to have the best, cleanest, and best-tasting smoking experience.

Things to Consider

You can dab as long as you want without having to re-heat the nail. Just keep the unit on until you’re done dabbing. Don’t cover the nail with the carb cap while the unit is on. Aside from containing all that tasty smoke, the purpose of the carb cap is to retain the heat.

Once you’re done dabbing, clean up your dab tools using a clean cloth. Wipe the nail with Q-tips to remove any residue. Unplug the unit and keep the dab rig in a place where it’s safe to cool down. That nail is burning hot and can scorch your skin (and carpet) with a slight touch.
