The XVape Fog Pro is an updated version of the original Fog (released 2018). It remains just as simple and straightforward as its predecessor. But with several new features like precise temperature settings, an OLED display, haptic feedback, and USB-C. Performance-wise the Fog Pro delivers consistently well-flavored vapor and boasts a quick heat-up time of 15 seconds.
The G-Pen Micro+ (Plus) is a feature-packed 2021 version of an old-school dab pen. It’s comprised of three parts – a food-grade silicone mouthpiece, the Micro+ tank, and the 850mAH battery with 510 threading. The Micro+’s battery makes micro-adjustments for more consistent temperatures and distinguishes between cartridges and the Micro+ tank.
The DaVinci IQC keeps the brand’s iconic design and is an improved version of the very popular IQ2. Several of the former zirconia pieces have been swapped out for silicone, and details like hinges and magnets have been improved and made stronger. The charging port has also been switched from micro- USB to USB-C. Despite the lowered price point, the IQC performs and satisfies just like its critically acclaimed predecessor.
The Healthy Rips Rouge is an upgraded version of the Fury Edge. It comes in Healthy Rips ever-reliable, durable box design and features improvements such as improved battery life, and a larger loading capacity. For a device of this size, the vapor produced is quite impressive- dense, voluminous, and flavorful.
The Puffco Budsy is the only device Puffco makes that’s made for use with dry herb and it’s also interestingly shaped like your everyday water bottle. Made with shatter-resistant and food-safe BPA- free Tritan construction- it has a transparent body and an opaque lid which conceals the mouthpiece and ceramic bowl. To use the Budsy, fill with 420 ml of water and light up with any non-torch lighter.
DynaVap’s line of Thermal Extraction Devices (TEDs) is definitely different from the usual vaporizer – especially since you need to add a torch to the mix. There might be a slight learning curve here but once you get the hang of it, the DynaVap M is great for microdosing and delivers good quality vapor that’s heavy on flavor. It definitely feels a lot like an ode to the good old’ joint and it’s definitely recommended if you’re still transitioning from that to vaping.
The Yocan Flame is a feature-packed vaporizer, with several inclusions in its kit at a very affordable price. While it is primarily a wax vaporizer and the nectar collector feature is secondary – this is one of the few devices on the market that serve this dual purpose. It’s a great device to have if you want something that has water filtration – without breaking the bank.
The Yocan Torch XL shares its functionality with its little brother, the Yocan Torch. Although similar, they’re differentiated by size and power. The Torch XL features an interchangeable quartz dual and triple coil atomizer, a glass cap for purer flavor, continuous heating, adjustable airflow, and variable voltage. With a feature list like this, any user would expect to shell out $$$, but the Yocan Torch XL is priced at only $75.

The Apollo is a well-made, sturdy wax vaporizer/ eNail hybrid that is the best of both worlds. The included glass bubbler is uniquely and artfully designed although not the most discreet. The device features smart heating technology, several pre-set heat modes, and Linx’s signature quartz atomizer, this device allows you to really taste and experience your material – without wasting it.
The Session is smart and uniquely designed to be an all-in-one extract vaporizer or what’s better known as a hybrid vape. This device can be used both as an eNail with existing Rigs or as a “standalone” wax vape. It features a neutral ceramic coil, three pre-set temperatures, and a simple straightforward user interface. The vapor produced ranges from mild to dense but is quite flavor-forward. Although, the best reason to buy the Session would most likely be its duality.
The Boost EVO is another release from the famed brand: Dr. Dabber. It also features the brand’s signature ergonomic deep center curve and LED lights. All of the EVO’s components are magnetically secured, making cleaning and assembly a breeze. One of its most notable performance features is the integrated temperature sensor that ensures that the atomizer does not overheat. The EVO is a simple, yet well-performing dab rig, and it might just be a new crowd favorite from Dr. Dabber.
The AirVape Legacy truly wins in the design department with advanced features such as wireless charging and on-demand functionality. This all-in-one premium vape works pretty well with both dry herb and concentrate. However, the many moving parts mean that caring for it might require extra attention. The Legacy is a vape that certainly delivers, while also being somewhat of eye-candy.
The Crystal 2 is a high-end, durable Dab Pen. The “Coilless” quartz bowl and the glass mouthpiece produce flavorful vapor that remains pure and tasty throughout the entire session.

The Crystal is simple enough for beginners and powerful enough for advanced users, making it the best wax pen of 2021.
If you are still using an old school rig and torch, ditch it. The Peak Pro is the latest reason to do so. At $400, the Peak Pro one of the more expensive eRigs out there, but it is also one of the best. The real-time temp control keeps a precise temp at the bowl, a game-changer in terms of efficiency and vapor quality. The Pro can be used as a point-and-shoot device by a total beginner, but it’s also powerful and smart enough to satisfy experienced users.
The Breezy is a sleek oil vape that’s compatible with any 510-threaded CBD/THC carts. It has a fast heat time and features 4 voltage settings to customize your vaping profile. It has two magnetic adapters that allow the device to hold either 0.5g or 1g oil carts. Overall, the Breezy is a decent conceal-type oil vape that provides great value for its price.
The Weezy is an entry-level vaporizer that has a simple and intuitive design. It has three preset temperatures and features a 15 seconds sesh mode so that you won’t need to hold down the power button as you vape. It also features a button on its side that pops out the ceramic atomizer for easier loading and cleaning. Finally, it has a 700 mAh battery that could last a couple of days of casual vaping. All in all, this is an appealing choice for beginners or vapers who are looking for a back-up or travel vape.
The Deezy by Kind Pen is an entry-level vape that performs well and produces good quality vapor for its price. It features a glass mouthpiece, decent bowl capacity, and precise temp control in a simple and pocket-friendly package.

Dr. Dabber Stella is a sleek-looking vape that produces stellar vapor flavor. It features a Temperature Coefficient Resistance which prevents the wax from getting burned. Also, the ‘floating coil’ design helped with dispersing the heat properly. For a $100 vape, this is suitable for both newcomers and experienced vapers who prefer vapor flavor above anything else.
Yocan Vane has a 380 mAh battery with Dual Quartz Coil and features a pre-heat function. It’s a sleek and straightforward vape that produces vapor that’s suitable for beginners. It may be an appealing choice, especially for those who have a low budget or as a ‘travel vape’. But, if you are looking for a primary wax pen, I suggest you invest a little more $ and go for a longer-lasting, better quality vape.
The Dive Mini features a dual functionality which means that aside from using it as a normal vape pen, you can use the concentrate straw to dab directly onto your wax. It also comes with an additional mouthpiece with a water bubbler which works great on both modes since it makes the vapor less harsh and bearable for first-timers. It produces above-average vapor and flavor but not comparable to high-end vapes. Even so, for a $45 vape, this is a suitable choice for beginners and intermediate users.
The Utillian 722 offers excellent value with a high performance to price ratio. It uses convection heating to efficiently heat your herb and an isolated airpath to achieve pure and flavorful vapor.

The 722 is recommended for beginners looking for a value-driven vape that does not compromise vapor quality.
