If you are smoking wax through a vape, is it necessarily a wax pen? Or is it a vape pen for wax?  Wax pens and vape pens are not “tomayto, tomahto” in the way that they are often referred to. As a matter of fact, they vary in a number of ways, including the THC substance that they vaporize, the manner they’re created, and the way they’re employed. So, what exactly is the difference between a dab pen and a vape pen? What is the significance of knowing the difference?


If you walk into a smoke shop and ask for a wax pen, and you already have a wax pen cartridge that you want to use, it’s possible that they won’t give you what you asked for. Consider this: all wax pens are also vape pens, but not all vape pens are also wax pens… and some are even both at the same time. Let’s take it step by step.


Wax Pens

In one hand, a white female hand with pink nails and an orange longsleeve with a thumbhole opening holds the gold Ooze Duplex Dual Extract Vaporizer and the gold Ooze Slim Twist vape pen, both of which have an oil cartridge attached. Snow covers the ground where she is standing, making it difficult for her to see.


All wax pens are considered to be vape pens due to the fact that the substance contained inside the device is literally vaporized when the pen is used. Dab vape pens are equipped with a heating coil and an atomizer, which allow them to evaporate wax of a thicker consistency. It is the heating coil of your device that is in charge of performing the initial stage in the vaporization process.


Heat is generated as a result of the conversion of battery power into heat, which vaporizes the wax contained inside the atomizer. The atomizer is only required for dab vape pens since it is here that the wax or concentrate is filled prior to reattaching the device to the battery for operation.

In contrast to dab vape pens, oil-specific batteries do not contain a heating coil, resulting in a closed system that is ideal for loading external oil cartridges or even ceramic coils onto it. The cartridge is attached to the heating chamber of the battery (which is the pen itself), which is responsible for vaporizing the THC oils.


Those that smoke cannabis and want to do it in the most convenient and hygienic manner possible will find these gadgets to be really useful. They’re extremely simple to use; all you have to do is connect your pre-filled THC cartridge and press a button. Furthermore, you never come into contact with the real substance.


A white female hand with yellow nails holds the white Ooze Slim Twist Vape Pen battery, which has a fully charged oil cartridge connected, in her right hand. She is outside on a golf course, holding the pen aloft so that she can see the water at the bottom of the hill she is standing on below her.


Vape pens like the Slim Twist Vape Pen and the brand new, square-shaped Quad battery, both of which are compatible with all 510 thread cartridges, include a preheat option, and have several temperature settings, are some of our favorites. If you already know what voltage you like, our 650, 900, and 1100 batteries are a much more straightforward alternative to consider. All Ooze vape batteries are wonderful additions to your smoking circle, thanks to their long battery life and sturdy heating components.

As the cannabis business continues to expand at a rapid pace, it may be a good idea to invest in a device that can be used for both cartridges and raw concentrates in order to maximize your returns. Not to mention the possibility that your personal tastes may alter over time. Duplex Dual Extract Vaporizer is a vape battery device that can be used with 510 threaded pre-filled THC cartridges. It also comes with a coil for extracting THC and an atomizer for wax.


One of the characters is a white female who is dressed in a long sleeve black and gray jacket with a thumbhole and black Dr. Martens boots with bright yellow laces. A gold Ooze Fusion vaporizer, as well as a matching gold dab tool and a yellow silicone wax stash container, are held in her right hand.


Besides the Fusion, our other favorite hybrid vaping gadget is the newly redesigned Fusion, which has three distinct coil shapes, allowing you to choose the setting that is most appropriate for the substance you’re smoking. Simply connect your atomizer (laden with a generous dab of oil) or your pre-filled oil cartridge to the device.


Wax pen advice

If you’re using wax, be sure to connect the coil first before attaching the mouthpiece top to the mouthpiece. For oil, you may dispense with the coil and mouthpiece entirely and just connect your cartridge to the battery. Keep your device clean every time after usage!



Now that you know the equipment to use, you can learn how to alter the temperature settings so that they are the most appropriate for the cannabis material you want. Enjoy your wax and have a good time!
