The 5 Best Electric Dab Rigs To Buy in 2021

In recent years, electric dab rigs or e-rigs have gotten more popular due to their portability and convenience.  Here are some of my top picks for electric dab rigs for this year.

Quick Answer

If you are the person who likes hitting two birds with one stone, the Dr Dabber Switch Kit is the right e-rig for you. For around $350, the function of a conventional dry herb vape and concentrate electronic dab rig will be at your disposal.


While this might sound pricy at first it actually really isn’t as you get two high-end devices in on.

With its 25 carefully-calibrated heat settings, the density of the vapour or clouds and the type of high you get from this e-rig/vape is entirely under your control.

The adjustable heat levels also give you the power to control the flavour of your buds or concentrates. If you are a terpenes expert or just like to tweak your cannabis experience this is exactly what you need.

If you don’t know what terpenes are I would strongly recommend you to check out my post: What is the best temperature to vape weed?

For added safety, the Switch has an automatic cool-down feature build in that activates after your session ends, so you don’t have to be scared of passing out with the switch kit in your hand or simply forgetting about it and setting your house on fire.

You don’t have to worry about overheating, there are no issues with that. 

The Switch kit comes with its Switch vaporizer, a banger each for concentrates and herbs, a charger, a herb filter, and a pair of tweezers.

For cannabis concentrate connoisseurs, the Focus V’s Electronic Smart Rig Laser Edition is the best choice. It combines the convenience of an electronically heated banger with the smooth filtration of water and a percolator. 

The exact temperature of the banger can also be controlled just like with the Dr Dabber Switch Kit, altering the taste and density of the smoke. 

Added to that, users can download the Carta Bluetooth Smartphone App, which is available for both iOS and Android. With the application, users can set the heat of the banger.

The package includes removable batteries, a USB Type-C cable, a concentrate chamber/banger, a carrying case, and a cleaning kit.

The Focus V Carta Electronic Smart Rig doesn’t have a build-in vaporiser thus it only makes the second spot. If you don’t need a vapouriser this is a great more affordable choice compared to the Dr Dabber Switch Kit.

Measuring only 17 cm in height, the Pulsar RoK e-rig is the second-most portable out there. It is designed to be compact for easy transport, concealment and storage.

With its 5-second heat-up time, it provides a quick and straight forward user experience for both buds and concentrates. An LED screen indicates the remaining battery charge where 25-30 hits can be expected on a full charge.

For around $220 the Pulsar RoK e-rig comes with a year of manufacturer warranty, four alcohol-filled cotton buds for cleaning, a micro USB charger, and other small accessories such as carb caps and spare bangers.

It is available in three designs, Black, The Alchemist, and Neptune which is fancy marketing talk for transparent, gold, and blue.

The Puffco Peak Smart Rig is an e-rig and concentrates vaporiser. Unfortunately, it can’t be used with buds.

It is nice looking and has a good ceramic banger, however, it can’t compete with the feature-rich e-rigs above.

Anyhow, it is a budget friendlier rig and if you are sure you don’t need the extra features, this can be a great choice. 

The Puffco Peak Smart Rig only has 4 heat settings and needs 25-30 seconds to fully heat up. The battery lasts for around 30 hits on a single load.

It will also turn itself off after 10 seconds, preserving its battery charge.

At around  $220, you get the Smart Rig itself, a pack of cleaning swabs, a micro USB cable for charging including European and US power plugs, and an extra ceramic bowl.

Pushing for compactness and portability, the Vista Mini Electric Dab Rig 2 from XVAPE combines two things that you need when out and about with your rig or if you like to keep it concealed. This rig stands at 5.7″ / 14.5 cm in height and heats up in 10 seconds.

It can use both wired and wireless technology for charging. Through the device’s LED screen, you can monitor the heat settings – which you can also toggle depending on the concentration preferred. For around $160, it comes with a USB charging cable, alcohol wipes, atomizers, and its smell-proof carrying case.

CONCLUSION

All these are great options but the Dr Dabber Switch Kit won by a landslide. Anyhow it might just be too pricey or feature-packed for you.

If you are into portability, the XVape Vista Mini and the Pulsar RoK Electric Dab Rig are your best choices.

In the event that you prefer using a device that can process buds, waxes and other concentrates, your best bets are the Dr Dabber SWITCH Kit and the Focus V Carta.
