Bangers, Bangers, and More Bangers!
Dabbing sweet budders and shatter definitely gives you the most bang for your buck when it comes to vaping dabs. The kind of Banger you use can make a difference, too. Depending on your style, here are a few to choose from.
Quartz bangers are probably the most popular kind of banger and these too come in a few different designs of their own. They offer the most authentic taste for every dab so you can enjoy all the terpenes and flavonoids of your gooey gold goodness.
The standard quartz banger is clear but sometimes has a white or opaque bottom. The white-bottom ones are supposed to hold heat longer and take less time to heat, however quartz itself is very durable and heats up pretty quickly, though it cools fairly quickly as well.
Thermal quartz bangers are just like the standard quartz ones except they have more mass and therefore retain heat longer and will burn at a lower temperature. This means a cooler, smoother, more flavorful dab.
Flat Top Banger With Insert
This kind has a little quartz cup insert that you fill with your product of choice and drop into the quartz banger. You get amazing flavor and slow vaporization without wasting any valuable goo. It also keeps your dab rig and banger looking new and clean all the time.
A reactor core quartz banger has a moat-like function within the banger bucket that provides more surface area. Plus, the little knob of quartz in the middle retains heat for a longer period of time than other bangers for enjoyable, low-temp dab sessions.
For the person who likes big dabs (like BIG dabs) this giant bucket banger holds huge amounts of dab goo for massive rips off the rig. It’s so large you’ll need a big carb cap to accommodate it.
These quartz bangers that change color with heat are so cool and fun to use. They let you know when your banger is hot enough to do a dab at the right temperature by changing color as you torch the quartz. Yellow borosilicate glass changes from yellow to red hot.
Titanium nails or bangers made from titanium are straightforward, easy to use, and easy to clean. They're also very durable since titanium is a non-toxic and super strong metal.
It’s important that the nail is titanium and not a cheaper metal because dabbing with a metal nail other than titanium can be very toxic and dangerous to your health.
The one thing about dabbing with a titanium nail is that you have to first season it before using it to remove any factory oils or impurities. Just like a good skillet.
How To Season a Titanium Banger
Step One: On your rig, heat the titanium nail to a red hot heat.
Step Two: Put the titanium nail under cold water, either with tongs or dumping into a dish. Repeat three times.
Step Three: Heat the nail again and coat the inside with a small amount of wax, budder or preferred gooey product and use a torch to evaporate it off.
Step Four: Enjoy as normal!
Ceramic bangers are durable and retain high heat for long periods of time, meaning you can add more dabs to it if the first glob wasn’t enough. They are a little trickier to use, since they require slow and even heating to resist cracking, but they are otherwise a great choice for more experienced dabbers and easy to clean.
Boro Bangers (Borosilicate glass)
These glass bangers are not the best banger to use but they do the trick. They are certainly not as durable as quartz bangers and due to their low resistance to high temperatures, they are more likely to crack or shatter and don’t withstand repeated use.
These do-dabs are great for dabbing on the go. They also make it easy to get the temperature setting of a dab perfect every time. Rechargeable and requiring no torch, they are perfect for sneaking in that quick dab between other tasks.
