atmos studio rig review

The Good: Works with any 510 battery | Inexpensive compared to full-fledged e-nails | Very easy to use

The Bad: Nail selection is limited to titanium | Dry herb performance is mediocre

The Bottom Line:  The Atmos Studio Rig is a nice starting point for anyone getting into e-nails, but it’s not the best choice for veterans. That’s because the lone titanium nail included in the kit isn’t enough to satisfy the needs of hardcore extract vapers. So, I would say that the Studio Rig is more of a stepping stone to better e-nails.

Kit and Accessories

atmos studio rig kit
The kit of the Studio Rig includes a titanium wax chamber (L) and a ceramic herb chamber (R).
  • Atmos Studio Rig with 510 chamber base and water bubbler
  • One titanium nail + one ceramic nail
  • Magnetic carb cap + dab tool

Compatibility: The Studio Rig is compatible with wax concentrates and dry herbs.

Official Accessories

If you want a wax vaping option besides the titanium nail, then you can purchase a ceramic nail from the Atmos website for $27.95. Ceramic heats up more slowly than titanium but unlike titanium, it is a neutral material that doesn’t affect the flavor of the wax. That means the vapor produced from wax tends to be purer and better tasting than titanium vapor. You can also get replacement, or extra, parts from the website.

Design and Features

atmos studio rig
The base of the Studio Rig features heat dissipating ridges that also happen to look quite stylish.

General Design: The Studio Rig looks just like any other e-nail with the prominent water bubbler and heating chamber, but there is a nice design touch on the chamber base. The 510 threaded base that attaches to the vape mod has a ridged design that looks good and helps to cool it down. It comes in different colors too, so you can get a little bit of customization as well.

Ease of Use: As for functionality, the Studio Rig is very easy to put together and use whether you utilize it for wax or weed. Each of the chambers is very simple to use and the wide opening of the water bubbler makes filling it a quick and easy affair.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Water Bubbler: This can be cleaned by simply soaking it in soap and water for a few hours, preferably overnight, so that it will be clean when you’re ready to vape. Just make sure that it’s completely dry before attaching it to the rest of the rig.

Titanium Nail: This nail can also be cleaned by soaking it in soap and water. However, if you want to clean it more thoroughly, then you can wipe down the dish with a cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol.

Ceramic Nail: After the nail has cooled down, clean it by first tipping out the cashed herb. Next, wipe down the inside of it using an alcohol soaked cotton swab.

Chamber Connector: Clean this part by rubbing it down with isopropyl alcohol.

How to Use

Atmos Studio Rig How to Use
Loading either the titanium nail or the ceramic herb chamber is a quick and easy process.

With Wax Concentrates

  1. Screw the nail onto the base connector and then attach the base connector to your 510 battery.
  2. Fill the bubbler with water and place it over the nail.
  3. Select the voltage or temperature setting on your battery.
  4. Once heating is complete, dab your wax onto the nail.
  5. Cover the nail with the magnetic carb cap and inhale from the mouthpiece.

With Dry Herb

  1. Screw the nail onto the base connector and then attach the base connector to your 510 battery.
  2. Fill the bubbler with water and place it over the nail.
  3. Place your dry herb into the chamber and cover it with the magnetic carb cap.
  4. Choose the voltage or temperature setting.
  5. When heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece.

Seasoning the Titanium Nail: Before using this nail for the first time, it is recommended that you season it to prevent a metallic taste from affecting the vapor. You do this by heating up your nail close to the highest temperature or voltage setting and then putting a thin layer on to it. Once the wax has burned off, wait for the nail to cool down, and repeat the process three or four times. This process mitigates the metallic taste you sometimes get from titanium.

Performance and Vapor Quality

atmos studio rig performance
The titanium nail of the Studio Rig delivers nicely flavored vapor, but more nail options would be preferable.

Wax Performance: First of all, the Atmos Studio Rig should only be used in the 15W to 25W range and I recommend that you start at 5W and then gradually increase it until you are satisfied. The titanium nail that comes with the Rig heats up very quickly and produces some nice tasting vapor, particularly at the lower wattage ranges. However, if you are familiar with e-nails, then you know that many of them also include quartz and ceramic nails as well as titanium.

You may also know that quartz and ceramic nails tend to produce the best flavor, which means that you’ll always have the nagging feeling that the vapor quality could be even better. Atmos does have a ceramic nail that is sold separately, but other kits include a ceramic nail at no extra charge. So, the wax performance is good, but it could be improved with a better nail.

Dry Herb Performance: The fact that the Rig can vape dry herb is a nice option, but it isn’t the best option. You have to monitor the herb closely while it’s heating to make sure that it doesn’t combust, which is something that you shouldn’t have to worry about with a vaporizer. Finding the right setting can be tricky since weed vapers are more used to Fahrenheit and Celsius settings rather than watts.

When you do hit the sweet spot of wattage, the vaping experience is fairly similar to a water pipe because of the water filtration of the glass bubbler. Once you manage to calibrate the Studio Rig correctly, it makes a solid weed vape, but getting there takes some time.

Bottom Line

8.7 Total Score
Atmos 510 e-nail Review bottom line

The Atmos Studio Rig makes a great starter e-nail because of its price and versatility, but the lack of nail options means that it is not the best choice for seasoned extract vapers. It is a decent option for extract vapers who also like to indulge in the herb since it comes with an attachment that does exactly that. However, it doesn’t do so at the level of a dedicated weed vape.

Who is it for: Anyone trying out e-nails for the first time. Frugal vapers who don’t want to spend too much on an e-rig. 

Who is it NOT for: Vapers who want a wider selection of nails. Anyone who wants a better dry herb experience.

  1. would you recommend the studio over the Icon for a first Enail?

  2. Just bought a studio rig and rx200s, my first mod. What setting do you use with the studio rig? It seems like you need masters in rocket science to determine the right settings for this thing…

  3. What the wattage you site the mod on? Got a dna200watt

  4. I pulsed mine at 30w until the centre section was fully red , taking care I wasn’t burning the centre post out.

    Let it cool down a bit fitted with a recycler or any other enail attachments, done the job excellent.

    It is Far superior build quality than the g9’s Dr dabber boost and the dabado bolt which are rebrands the same as the glass and the various glass attachments they fit better on the atmos tbh.

    I Still managed to fry the coil in the nail and upon trying to repair the coils innards. It seems as though it works exactly the same as the g9 with a very sub par ceramic heating rod.

    Very good idea although, different coils should be readily available in different sizes or dish type ie quartz.

    Good thing is you can use the dry herb chamber for dabbing also

    I’ve found that to be better dabbing on the side wall it’s certainly works a treat

    But to say give up dabbing with a torch or e rig is plain silly.
    If you have the means to use one I’d opt for that over an enail any day

  5. Just bought the studio rig for my smok 80w baby mod and when i first tried it it seemed to work but now all i get is a ohm low on my screen. Tried loosening the enail and taking it completely off and put back on and getting the same low ohm. Any other way to fix or do i need a bigger mod?

  6. Using an innokin mvp4 on 550 watts. Works better then i expected. My new fav thing!
