Top 12 Dab Tools: For Efficient Dabbing
When it comes to dabbing, you always want to be prepared. It gives such an intense experience yet there are so many tools to help you with the process.
Dabbing tools like dabbers, nectar collectors, nails, e-Nails, bangers, torches and butane's are all part of the dabbing process. Although it sounds complex, it really isn't. It all comes down to following the process with the right dabbing accessories.
The nectar collector is one of the most simple ways to dab your concentrates. It features a tip, that is usually titanium. Using a torch, heat it up until it's hot and dip it into a wax container. A nectar collector is simply a dab rig that's smaller. Some of them contain a chamber to fill it up with water. There are also dab straws or honey straws which are made up of a straw that works the same way. However, dab straws don't come with a chamber for water.
To use your nectar collector, simply use your torch to heat up the tip you have for it. Heat it for 20 seconds then wait 15 seconds for it to cool down. When it's cool, simply tip it, dip it, and then sip it!

Banger nails are a very important part of dabbing. If you dab with an oil rig, you will need either a regular nail or a banger. These will be the receptacles in which you use a dabber to place the wax on. The banger gets heated with a torch until it reaches the right temperature. Wait about 15 seconds for it to cool down and use your dabber tool to dab your wax right on. Using a carb cap, which often times it placed at the other end of your dabber, you can control the airflow of your rig.
Bangers come in different sizes from 10mm, 14mm to 18mm. They also come in different joint genders like male and female. The stem can be curved at a 90 degree angle or it can be an S shape. Regardless, one thing they all share in common is the raised walls to help the wax stay in and have better airflow.
Quartz Color Crystal Thermal Banger
The Quartz Color Crystal Thermal Banger is by far the most unique banger because of its thermal ability to change colors. There are little thermochromic color changing crystals inside it.

Quartz Riptide Banger with Quartz Pearl and Carb Cap
The Quartz Riptide Banger with Quartz Pearls is another very unique banger that shows what physics can do! There are two crystal pearls in the banger. As you inhale, the pearls start spinning around. The faster they spin the more air they draw in from the top of the carb cap. This creates more smoke, The top of the quartz carb cap has a hole which acts as a spinner turbine.
Overall, this not only helps reduce oil from escaping but it also creates a bigger airflow drag. This feature also helps oil from getting trapped in the corners.
A dab nail works the same way as a banger by heating it up with a torch and letting it cool down. However, the design changes. A nail is a very simple construction. It looks very similar to a construction nail with threads in the middle. You just drop it into the stem of the dab rig. Some nails will need a dome while others are domeless. By putting a dome on top of it, this helps control the airflow so you can inhale it through the down stem.
