When choosing the best dab pen, the amount of choices can be overwhelming. We put together a short list of the most important factors to consider when buying dab pens online

But first…

What Is A Dab Pen?

As we discussed in a previous blog post, there are three primary types of vaporizers:

  1. Dry Herb Vapes
  2. Extract Vapes
  3. Oil/Distillate Vapes

Dab Pens, also known as wax pens, generally fall into the second category. They vaporize cannabis concentrates like wax, shatter, and liquid cannabis oils. They are simple, yet effective, and utilize a mouthpiece, a heating element (e.g. a coil or plate atomizer), and a battery. Because of their slim design and portable size, they offer an easy and convenient vaping experience, from loading to cleaning.

Every extract vaporizer has something different to offer. Which brings us to…

How To Choose theBest Dab Pen

The materials used to manufacture a vaporizer of any kind play a huge role in their quality and durability. Cheaper dab pens are not only made from lower quality materials, they often contain heavy metals and other additives which can prove a huge detriment to your health. 


That’s why all our products at Linx are made from medical grade stainless steel, quartz, and ceramic, and are lab-tested for toxins by third party laboratories. That means your clouds aren’t just smooth and tasty, but health-conscious as well.


The use of higher quality materials paired with innovative design offers a range of next generation options. Our Hypnos Zero, for instance, boasts medical grade construction, four different temperature settings, a glass mouthpiece, durable construction, and a completely chemical free vapor path. The attention to detail has earned it several awards and made it one of the most popular dab pens online.



In order to earn the title of “Best Dab Pen,” that vape must balance portability, durability, and efficiency. Though they are all shaped like, well, a pen, your personal preferences will determine the right blend of these factors.


If you’re looking for low maintenance and low waste, the Hypnos Zero will be a perfect fit. Thanks to the powerful and unique ceramic heating plate, you get maximum flavor and minimal waste. Additionally, this lack of coil atomizer makes it safe and easy to fill and clean, and boasts an impressive atomizer lifespan. 


If you prefer a dab pen that’s small, sleek, and simply superb, our Linx Ember is perfect for you. Ultra compact with a top air flow that prevents spills and clogging, the Ember is ideal for vaping on-the-go. It even offers a glass vapor window so you can monitor the amount of extract remaining with ease.

We cannot stress this enough: temperature makes a big difference while dabbing. Knowing the right temperature for your particular concentrate is essential when shopping for dab pens online. Too low and you produce no vapor at all. Too high and you run the risk of burning your terpenes and creating a dab that is rough and harsh.


And to top it off, every terpene varies in its remedial advantages, flavor profile, and, naturally, ideal activation temperature. Wouldn’t want it to be TOO easy, now, would you?


It is for this reason that the best dab pens offer multiple temperature options, so you can adjust on the fly. All of our vape pens at Linx Vapor offer just such adaptability. The Linx Ember has three available temperatures, in addition to “Sesh Mode” — 12 seconds of continuous heating, perfect for group sessions. Not to be beat, the Hypnos Zero offers four temperature options. 


But it's the Linx Blaze that takes customization to the next level. Though bigger in size than the other two, it packs a powerful punch, and the four temperature options offer increased flavor and larger clouds. On top of that, it can be equipped with two different atomizers, the Ace and the Zero. Each of these provides its own unique benefits, so you can vape the way you want, the way you need, and the way you deserve.



You can pay anywhere from $30 to $150 for a dab pen. But the price is not always reflective of the other essential elements discussed above. When searching online for dab pens, Linx Vapor offers the ideal range of affordable options with the guarantee of quality design, health-conscious materials, and incredible experiences. That’s why our products continue to win awards to this day.
