The continued growth of the vape market shows no signs of abating. With new brands and products entering the market regularly there’s a lot to keep up with. Vaping is perhaps surpassing expectations in terms of popularity, hence there is room for fresh names to stake a claim to their share.

As the dab pen is among the most popular devices of all we’ve had a look at the 5 best weed pens for dabbing on the market in 2021, so let’s get down to business.

The Top 5

1 – Yocan Evolve Plus Kit

The Yocan brand is established as a leader in quality vape products at sensible prices. Using the latest technology and the most advanced materials, this example of a vape pen is one that others need to follow.

Available at many a reputable online vape store,the Yocan Evolve Plus comes as a full kit ready to get you going straight away, and you can also buy the components separately should you need replacements or stand-by parts.

The Evolve pen consists of a metal outer body with a built-in silicone jar. This makes it more durable than some rival products and suitable for travelling use. It has a 510 thread for interchangeable parts, and the 1100mAH battery is powerful enough for a portable device such as this.

The Yocan trend for using the best materials is displayed in the dual quartz atomizer coils. A ceramic coil is an option for those who prefer it.

The coil cap itself is detachable – all the parts can be removed for cleaning or replacement – and has been cleverly designed to ensure it is leak-proof and provides a seamless operation. Simple to use with one-touch operation, the Yocan Evolve Plus Kit is available in a choice of five colours.

2 – Flowermate Slick 2-in-1

Suitable for wax, dry herbs and e-liquids, the Flowermate Slick 2-in-1 is a popular dab pen of a neat and usable design. The brand has been around for some time now and offers a range of interesting, reliable and affordable products that use advanced design and materials.

The Slick 2-in-1 outer body is made from metal with a carbon-look finish. The active parts use medical grade materials including the ceramic chamber and glass mouthpiece, the former for consistent heat and the latter for a smooth draw of vapor.

A removeable 2500mAh battery is more than powerful enough for what is a portable device (it measures just 16cm x 2.5cm) and a ceramic oven and coils means zero combustion, and a heating up time of around 30 seconds. One charge by USB gives an hour of use or 12 vaping sessions, and there is a built-in 5-minute safety cut-off.

The Flowermate Slick comes as a full package ready for you to start vaping. This includes the body, mouthpiece and battery, as well as a pod for oil and wax plus another for dry herb (these are interchangeable). Also in the pack are 5 mouthpiece and oven screens of different sizes plus a cleaning tool, charging cable and manual.

One benefit of the Flowermate Slick over some rivals is the ability to change the temperature. There are three settings: 385°F, 400°F and 420°F. This feature is operated by clicking a button one, two or three times to select your desired temperature and allows for greater personalized use.

3 – Dr Dabber Stella Vape Pen

Dr Dabber is a well-known brand that has an established place in the vaping, cannabis and CBD markets. The product we’re looking at – the Dr Dabber Stella Vape Pen – is among its most popular dab pens of the moment.

Among the most sleek and stylish of the dab pens we have seen – especially in the neat and discreet black finish – the Stella vape pen packs a lot of features into a nice design at a sensible price.

Supplied as a kit with all you need to start vaping, the Stella vape pen features a 640mAh battery. That may lag behind some of the rivals we have listed here, but this is a pen designated for portable use, and we believe that the battery life is adequate for such usage.

In an interesting change from the usual ceramic or quartz options, the single coil atomizer in the Dr Dabber Stella model is titanium. The manufacturers state this achieves instantaneous heating and consistent heat throughout. A spare atomizer is supplied as part of the kit.

As all of the components are removable and the thread is the standard 510 this pen should work with many other cartridges as well as that supplied. This gives added variety to the user. There is no temperature setting option, it has been pre-set to a point that Dr Dabber believes to be perfect. This pen is for use only with liquid concentrates.

A neatly designed dab pen with some interesting features, that the Dr Dabber Stella lacks temperature adjustment may be the only off-putting factor about what is otherwise an excellent dab pen at the price.

4 – Airistech Quaser Vape Pen

Among the slimmest dab pens we have seen is the Airistech Airis Quaser Vape Pen. This really has to be seen at just 12.8 x 1.1cm to understand how Airistech has managed to achieve perhaps the perfect package.

Available in a series of colours, including the neat and discreet black, the Airis Quaser could be considered a basic yet quality dab pen for wax. It’s important to remember it is specific to wax and should not be used for dry herbs. If you are looking to vape dry herbs, we recommend you check out leading online retailer Vape4Ever for the best choice.

The Airis Quaser has a fairly robust outer casing and a specially designed mouthpiece that the makers claim adds greatly to the experience by offering a purer vape. This is also enabled by the three different voltage settings – 3.4v, 3.7v and 4.2v – which have been carefully chosen to alter the temperature to the user’s preference. The battery is only a 350mAh model, so will need charging quite regularly.

We like the clear window to the wax compartment which gives you a view of the state and amount of the wax left in the compartment. Where the Airistech Airis Quaser scores highly is in the use of a quartz coil atomizer to a patented design they call ‘Qcell’. This further enhances the purity of the vapor cloud for a better vaping experience.

5 – The Kind Pen Jiggy 2-in-1

If you are in the market for a superb-value yet good quality dab pen that can deal with oils, liquids and concentrates we might have the ideal choice: The Kind Pen Jiggy 2-in-1 dab pen comes at a price that we can only called amazing given what the starter kit contains.

Beautifully designed to be sleek and stylish yet functional and easy to use, it’s typical of The Kind Pen brand who are regarded for simplicity and quality. That it can be bought in 11 different colours adds to the appeal for those who want to be seen vaping with a trendy device.

The use of a quartz atomizer – which seems to be the way to go with the forward-thinking brands – is notable, as is the adjustable voltage 400mAh battery. Choose between 3.3V and 3.3V at 0.5V intervals to perfect he vapor output.

The single button usage, fast heating up time and clever mouthpiece design all add up to a dab pen that is unsurprisingly popular. The starter kit comes with everything needed as well as replacement O-rings and an instant heat-dip attachment for more versatile vaping.

That concludes our list of the 5 best dab pens for 2021, and we hope we’ve helped you find the one for you.
