#1. KandyPens Prism Plus Vaporizer
The Kandypens Prism Plus is a wax vaporizer offered by well-known manufacturer KandyPens. It is a very compact device with dimensions of only 1.25” x 3.5” x 6” and a weight of only 0.40 pounds. This vaporizer does not come with precision temperature control but it does come with preset temperature settings that are displayed on the device by four different colors.
Features & Benefits:
Some of the key features that come with the KandyPens Prism Plus Vaporizer include two glass mouthpieces that allow you to take flavorful hits without having to ruin the vapor flavors with plastic pieces, a choice of a dual quartz rod atomizer or a ceramic coilless atomizer (both of these atomizers have something special to offer when it comes to heating up your wax), and a small dab tool that can be attached to your keychain so that you can use your device absolutely anywhere.
A sleek and slender body with a powerful battery and great attachments makes the KandyPens Prism Plus Vaporizer a great choice for anyone who loves taking dabs on the go while also being discreet and not needing large amounts of equipment to vape.
#2. Dr. Dabber Boost e-Rig
This unit is a game-changing device that allows you to enjoy concentrates, waxes, and oils in style. Dr. Dabber Boost e-Rig has a sleek and slim design that matches any lifestyle, and it does a wonderful job keeping you under the radar if you're a traveler. Designed for ease of use such that anyone, including a novice, can use it, yet sophisticated enough for veterans.
The unit comes with a replaceable 2500mAh battery for heating the nail, which comes in three options: titanium, ceramic, and quartz. The Boost e-Rig helps to greatly conserve your product and eliminate wastage as it only requires a very small amount of wax at a time, which can give you maximum effect.
Although the device has a metal body, you have to take caution so that you don't damage the glass percolator that acts as a water filtration system to help keep the vapor cool and fresh, preventing throat or lungs irritation. The Dr. Dabber Boost does not have any temperature control, just click the power button three times quickly to heat the titanium and quartz nails, and five times quickly for the ceramic nail. Expect the power button to glow blue when the titanium and quartz nails are heat and white when the ceramic is heated.
#3. Boundless CF-710
Next on our list of the best wax vaporizers of 2021 is the Boundless CF-710 from Boundless Technology. This device adds another dimension to your dabbing experience with pure flavor and great vapor from your concentrates while on the go. This dab pen is very portal and solid to hold. It takes the shape of a pen marker with a diameter of 20 mm and a height of 5.5″ (140mm), which makes it a perfect unit for discreet dabbing.
The CF-710 eliminates the need for butane or electrical cords, thanks to its internal 16500 battery with a capacity of 900mAh. The battery capacity is one of the reasons why this wax device is great. Other units within the same price range come with 650mAh batteries which start cutting off after a few sessions.
The Boundless CF-710 wax pen uses replaceable heating coils with options for switching between a dual quartz coil and a single ceramic coil. While both coils are pure and durable, the quartz coil produces greater flavor, but thinner vapors and the ceramic coil produces thicker vapors but less tasty flavor.
#4. Kandypens Crystal
Kandypens got into the vaporizer manufacturing business in 2014, and since then, the company has won a sizable share of the market by producing unique and quality vaping devices. The Kandypens Crystal is explicitly designed for discreet consumption of herbal concentrates. The unit is stylish and portable, and when held, it feels like holding a marker. With a 900mAh battery, you are guaranteed multiple vaping sessions on a single charge unlike other wax units in the market.
The Crystal is pretty straightforward to use. It combines a quartz bucket coil heating method, a quartz chamber, a glass mouthpiece, and four voltage options to deliver pure and flavorful vapors. It is important to note that the vapor density and flavor depend on the voltage setting. If you prefer flavor over vapors, then vaping at a lower voltage is the best way to go, but if you love the clouds, then you should switch to a higher voltage.
The unit also features an innovative sesh mode that automatically heats your wax for 10 seconds, non-stop. This feature can come in handy when you want to take quickdraws on the go. A double-tap on the power button will activate this mode.
#5. Puffco Plus V2
The Puffco Plus V2 wax vaporizer is one of the sleekest and most straightforward vaping units out there in the market. The Plus V2's greatest strength is its simplicity and ease of use. Operating the device is not rocket science and can be done with a few clicks. The device is so simple to use that it eliminates all the complexities that usually come with most dabbing units.
The unit features a plated brass exterior with a single control button, three temperature settings, a 12-seconds sesh mode, and a coilless ceramic chamber for clean vapor production. The major downside of this device is its battery capacity. It uses a 520mAh battery which gives around 50 hits in a single charge.
#6. KandyPens Mini Wax
Featuring a retro candy gloss design and a ton of features that you would only expect to be present in much larger wax vaporizers, the MINI by KandyPens is a winner in both aesthetic and function. This compact vaporizer is only about 1.25” x 3.25” x 5.5” and weighs approximately 0.46 pounds. This dab pen comes installed with three preset temperatures at 350°F or 177°C, 390°F or 199°C, and 430°F or 221°C.

The Flowermate V5.0s Mini Pro is an impressive dual-use (dry herb and wax) device packed into a box that is only 2” x 3” x 5” with a weight of only 0.70 pounds. Like other palm-sized dual-use portable vaporizers, the Flowermate V5.0s Mini Pro has precision temperature control. It also has the capability of reaching temperatures as low as 104°F or 40°C and temperatures as high as 446°F or 230°C.
Some of the key features included in the Flowermate V5.0s include the vaporizer’s ability to vaporize both dry herbs as well as wax inside of its ceramic chamber. The use of hybrid heating which is a combination of conduction and convection heating for a high-quality vaping experience is a must. It also has an isolated air path combined with a glass mouthpiece that makes sure your vapors are untainted and flavorful when you begin hitting the device.
There is a digital LED display that allows you to track and set your vape temperature. You can also use it to keep tabs on your current battery life. A new feature that some vapes also have is the power bank feature so that you can charge other devices using your vaporizer. There is a 30-second heat-up time that gives you the ability to vape quickly, which is normal.
If you’re looking for something that is compact, convenient, and packed full of useful features that make for great vaping sessions, the Flowermate V5.0s Mini Pro is definitely one of the best vaporizers out right now.

The ceramic chamber, coupled with the three preset temperature settings allows users to enjoy controlled dabbing sessions with flavorful vapors. The oven is perfectly sized such that it can hold a reasonable amount of concentrate for long-lasting sessions before a refill is required.
The device lets you swap between two atomizers - the coilless chamber with a ceramic dish for zero combustion and the dual quartz rod wrapped with titanium coils for slow and relaxed vaping sessions.
#9. Dr. Dabber Aura
Aura is another powerful wax vaporizer from Dr. Dabber's collection. The Aura, just like many other products from the Manufacturer, delivers a unique and quality vaping experience for dabbers. Dr. Dabber Aura was designed for excellent mobility.

The unit comes with three atomizers - dual quartz rod, dual ceramic rod, and ceramic halo heater - with each offering a different experience with the concentrates. The quartz rod is perfect for thick oils, the ceramic rod is suitable for high viscosity concentrates, while the ceramic halo is ideal for waxier oils.
The atomizer is not the only customizable spec of the Dr. Dabber Aura wax pen; the device also has three heat settings that give you a varying experience. But as with any other wax pen, the lesser the heat, the better the flavor and the higher the heat, the thicker the vapor.
#10. Kandypens Galaxy
If you're looking for an inexpensive, yet durable, portable, and classy vaping device, then the KandyPens Galaxy Vaporizer is just the perfect unit for you. Awarded Best Vape Pen by "The Vape Critic," the Galaxy vape pen features quartz and stainless steel chamber, long-lasting battery, dual quartz rod atomizer wrapped in titanium coils, and a large mouthpiece to deliver the thickest vapor with each draw.

Changing the heat control setting is also done by rapidly clicking the K button three times to toggle between temperatures of 350ºF, 390ºF, and 430ºF, which is represented by an LED light indicator of light red, green, and blue respectively.
#11. Flytlab Stik
The Flytlab Stik is a stylish, portable vape pen that can fit into any user’s pocket. This device comes with a ceramic Slab and a dual quartz atomizer. Choosing between the Slab and the Dual quartz, users can decide to go from 200°F – 650°F degrees temperature. This helps you determine if you want to increase the heat for thick vapors or lower the heat to enjoy the flavor.
The exterior design of this vape pen makes it stand out from the crowd. It has a unique rectangular shape that gives users the feeling that they have purchased an expensive gadget. The good thing is that you don’t have to break the bank for this device as it is very affordable.
Powered by a non-removable 800mAh battery, the device can handle multiple sessions on a full charge. Interestingly, despite its long-lasting battery, it only takes about 90 minutes to reach a full charge. The four LED lights add to the beauty of this device, making the Flytab Stik more attractive.
The carb mouthpiece of this vaporizer is an added advantage as it lets you control the airflow with your lips. The unit also features a magnetic connector that makes assembly of the various parts very easy - even beginners would not have a problem joining the parts.
#12. QloudUp Nexus Pro Vaporizer
The QloudUp Nexus Pro Vaporizer is a 4.5” tall, sleek, easy-to-use wax pen. Despite being made with stainless steel, the weight of the Nexus pro is as light as a feather. It comes with great features including flash charging, ceramic atomizer, and dual quartz atomizers, deep half gram chamber, magnetic connectors, and long battery life, all at an affordable price.

Although the QloudUp Nexus Pro Vaporizer may not be the ideal device for experienced vapers due to its low capabilities when compared with other expensive vaporizers, it can offer a decent vaping experience to beginners and some regular vape users.
Users do not need to worry about the return policy of this product should, in case it develops problems during use, because this model comes with a lifetime warranty.
#13. Linx Hypnos
One of the best looking and sleekest wax vape pens on the market is the Linx Hypnos. From the stainless steel look to the cleanliness design, you will appreciate this wax vapor pen. It even looks just as nice, if not nicer with the glass mouthpiece on it. The Linx Hypnos does not contain any glue, paint, or fiber anywhere on or in the vape. Everything is made from medical grade equipment from the stainless steel to the ceramic to the coil and even glass. It is truly portable with its short stature standing at 4 inches and 14mm in diameter. As you can tell by now, we love temperature controlled wax vape pens and this is another one. It has 4 different temperatures to choose from. You start at low (blue), then medium-low (green), medium-high (yellow), high (red). The batteries' input voltage is 2.7 – 5.5v and the output is 3.5v – 4.1v. The battery is also 510 threaded so you can interchange it with other chambers and vapes but it won’t be necessary after you see the potential of the Linx Hypnos.
We cannot get over the quality of this dab pen. From the design to the vapor quality, everything is A1 from start to finish. It has a solid build that you can just taste as you use it. The ceramic atomizer is exactly what you need. Since the update, there are two types of Linx Hypnos with different coils. The Linx Hypnos original has a titanium wrapped coil with a ceramic rod atomizer where the Linx Hypnos Zero is a ceramic dish. It is all in preference but we think the Linx Hypnos Zero has a better-tasting atomizer. It burns a bit slower and keeps the good tasting vapor consistent and offers a great airflow vapor path.
How to Use the Linx Hypnos:
Press the white clear button 5 times quickly to turn it on. Unscrew the top chamber to show the atomizer and drop a nice small dab in there then screw it back on. Choose your temperature by clicking on the button 3 times to toggle between the 4 pre-set temperatures. Click the button and wait about 5 seconds before you take a slow drag. There is no real turning off the feature. You have to keep your finger on the power button for longer than 15 seconds to automatically have it shut off.
Pros: We cannot brag about this pen enough. On top of it all, it is a very low price compared to a lot of other vaporizers. The price is definitely a big factor along with just about everything else we talked about which was good. The glass mouthpiece is even a great added benefit because it helps with the great vapor taste.
#14. Pulsar APX Wax
The Pulsar APX Wax, or APX W, is a new addition to the Pulsar lineup that offers power as well as portability. This extremely compact device has dimensions of 2” x3” x 5.5” and a lightweight of about 0.45 pounds. This device appears to have preset temperature settings but there seems to be no information online about what those settings are or how hot the APX W is capable of getting.
Features & Benefits:
Some of the features that you can see in the Pulsar APX W include a heating chamber made of pure quartz for rapid heating, replaceable atomizer tanks, replaceable triple quartz rod atomizers, dabs that only take five seconds for convenience, a huge selection of bodies that you can choose from for those who like plainer designs and for those who like more customization, interchangeable glass, and stainless steel mouthpieces depending on the users preference, and a charge time of only one hour and 30 minutes.
If you need something small and discreet but also powerful, highly-customizable, and high-quality, the Pulsar APX W might be the wax vaporizer that you need.

#16. Atmos Kiln
The Atmos Kiln has a design extremely similar to that of the KandyPens Mini but with fewer features. This wax pen has dimensions of 1.75” x 2.5” x 5.5” and a weight of approximately 0.80 pounds. This is another model that has no temperature controls or settings, which may be an issue for some vape enthusiasts. Like the previous vaporizer, this one only has a single button for all of your vaping needs.
Features & Benefits:
Some of the key features in the Atmos Kiln include the ceramic coilless atomizer that gives you more powerful vape hits and helps you to conserve your wax rather than waste it on coils, the ability to turn most any e-juice mod into a powerful dab rig, an easy-to-modify body that allows you to take control of your vaping experience and do what you want with the Kiln, and bonus tools that help you to get the most out of your dab pen.
To be honest, the Atmos Kiln leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to a dab pen. However, if you are just starting out on your vape journey or if you just need a simple device for your dab sessions then the Atmos Kiln might be the way to go.
#17. Yocan Evolve Plus

Features & Benefits:
Some of the features that you will see in the Yocan Evolve Plus include a built-in concentrate jar located towards the bottom of the vaporizer that allows you to store and carry extra wax with you wherever you take your pen, a dual quartz wax atomizer with an atomizer cap for powerful dabbing sessions that prevents leaking, a larger chamber for better heating and improved holding capabilities, an impressive 3-second heat-up time for vape enthusiasts who can’t wait to hit their wax, and tools to help you remove and load wax from your Evolve Plus.
Although the weight of this device might be a bit much for some and the lack of temperature controls can also be a deterrent, the Evolve Plus is a very well-built device and is perfect for any vaper who wants to be able to carry their wax and device around with ease.
#18. G Pen Nova
Grenco Science is the brain behind this masterpiece vape pen. The G Pen Nova entire body and mouthpiece is made with silicone, giving it a great feeling of comfort.

The stealthy matte black finish helps to maintain the standard of discreetness on the go.
Combined with a built-in ceramic stirring tool and a quartz bowl, you are guaranteed pure and clean vapors. Although it gets very oily and messy when vaping with the device, it still helps ensure each vaping experience is smooth.

The glass straw helps to deliver flavorful vapors while removing obnoxious scents during vaping sessions. The titanium straw, on the other hand, produces better heat and thicker vapors.
Design and Quality:
Designed to achieve a variety of flavor profiles, the length of the Honey Dabber 2 ensures that the vapor is smooth and fresher than most vaping devices. When the device is held upright during vaping, there is a possibility that users might suck hot wax. This seems to be a problem for all vaping devices in the market. However, if the device is held horizontally, you won’t have to face this issue. The Honey Dabber 2 is a very convenient, portable, affordable, and easy-to-use device that helps get the most of your waxy concentrates.

What's a Wax Vaporizer?
A wax vaporizer is a rechargeable and sometimes replaceable battery operated vaporizer that its main purpose is to vaporize concentrates. Often times a wax vape pen will be dual-use or triple use so it can vaporizer other materials like herbs and liquids too. This can mean they share the same chamber but the wax uses its own pod or that the chamber gets changed for the correct material. Dab vape pens are designed for the vaper that prefers concentrates as their go-to medicine. The main difference between a wax vape pen and other vaporizers is the chamber for it. Atomizers specifically for concentrates are created different. One thing to remember is a vaporizer with lower heat will usually produce good vapor flavor and ones with high heat will produce a lot of vapor but keep the vapor level low. They generally work the same way as other vaporizers, usually turned on by 5 clicks. If it is a temperature-controlled vape pen, it is usually controlled by 3 clicks.
Difference Between Dry Herb Vaporizers and Dab Pens?
The similarities in different vape pens like ones for dry herbs and ones for concentrates are design, shape, size, and feel. However, the main difference is inside the heating chamber. When you open the chamber and look at the atomizer, you will notice a big difference. Herbal heating atomizers are generally a flat circle coil or an empty chamber with holes to heat it up. The wax atomizer can come in a plethora of designs from ceramic coils to ceramic dish to titanium nails to quartz rods wrapped in titanium coils. Dab pens also come with dab tools so you can scrape the wax and place it on the coil. Some coils tend to break or give out quicker than others depending on your atomizer. When you have been using it for a couple of weeks, the coil can be detached from the amount of oil build up over time.
