There is a certain ritual to dabbing. Getting the nail heated, and prepping the glob while waiting for the temp to drop. The rotation of the carb cap with the sequence of inhalation. Dabbing is somewhat of an artform, and like all art, the process is evolving. Some are on a quest for the perfect temperature dabs and others are trying to take their love of dabbing extracts on the go. Despite the end goal, it all points to the E-nail. Simply put, an E-nail is an Electronic Nail used on a dab rig. They can be heated to specific temperatures for perfect dabs without the danger of using a blowtorch.
Here are 5 of our top E-rig picks that cut out the torch.
1) Dabado Bolt 2
Dabado vaporizers are durable, user-friendly, and perfect for dabbing on the go. The newest release, Black Bolt 2 features an LCD screen with a temperature readout to easily see exactly what temps we’re dabbing at.

2) MiniNail DeepDish Quartz Hybrid E-Nail
