What is an “E-Nail”?

For the 1 or 2 people that have stumbled upon this article that don’t already know what an e-nail is. An e-nail is an electric nail for dabbing concentrates. They are an alternative to heating up your nail with a torch, and if your into dabbing, they are a must have!

If you’ve ever “dabbed” before, your well aware that the classic torch and nail setup can be a bit of a pain in the ass, as you have to re-heat the nail every single time you want to hit a dab.

With e-nails, you can set your desired temperature and it’ll stay heated until you turn it off!

Since the use of concentrates has exploded recently, so has the amount of portable electric dab rigs on the market. This is great for many reasons but it also means there is no shortage of low quality e-nails for sale. Our entire team here at iMarijuanit are huge fans of dabbing, and we all take dab rips in our morning meeting on a daily basis!

Unless you know what to look for you could get stuck with less than perfect electric nail for dabbing. This article was made to help concentrate users find the best e-nail dab rig to suit their needs!

What are the Best E-Nails on the Market?

There are tons of great e-nails on the market, and there are even more low quality ones. I’ve tried quite a few e-nails over the years, and I’ve narrowed this article down to my top 5 portable e-rigs/e-nails.

The Dab Ninja E-Nail

The Dab Ninja is similar to most traditional e-nails in the sense that it has a base which allows you to control the temperature that attaches to the coil. The one thing that sets this e-nail apart from the rest is it’s convenience due to how portable it is. The base is very small compared to the other e-nails on the market.

As far as performance goes, this is my favorite e-nail. The heat up time on the Dab Ninja is very quick, and according to my temperature probe, it’s temperature is very precise.

The Dab Ninja comes with a nail that attaches to any 14mm or 18mm glass bong. I highly recommend this e-nail if your looking for a high quality traditional electronic nail.

Cloud V Electro Portable E-Nail

The Electro is a new style of e-nail made by Cloud V. It is a bubbler and an e-nail built into one portable unit. It’s what they call an “e-rig” style electronic nail.

It has exceptional battery life, and the functionality and vapor quality is outstanding. It’s the best e-nail for dabs in my opinion because everything is built into one simple unit, and not only that but it’s portable.

Why Should You Buy an E-Nail?

Electronic nails provide a unique way for concentrate fans to vaporizer oils and wax. E-nails are one of the preferred ways to smoke dabs by most seasoned concentrate users. They make dabbing much easier when compared to the standard old school torch and nail setup.

E-nails give the user full control over the temperature settings allowing them to finely tune it to however they like to vaporizer their concentrates. This is a huge bonus especially for seasoned concentrate smokers because everyone has their own preferred temperature for optimal flavor and smoothness!

The vapor quality and taste that most electronic nails produce is much better than the traditional torch and nail setup. Since you can precisely control the temperature, your overall vapor quality is much better than you will get from heating a nail up with a torch.

Unless of course your some kind of torch jedi… In which case you should stick to a torch and nail!

All jokes aside once you use an electronic nail, you won’t ever want to go back to the old torch and nail way of dabbing. E-nails are a much more convenient way of vaporizing concentrates, and it’s a night and day difference when your talking about convenience if you ask me.

Pro’s and Con’s of E-Nail Dabbing


  1. You have full control over the temperature. This allows you to finely tune it to your preferred temperature
  2. They nail stays heated so you don’t have to consistently reheat them, unlike with a torch and nail
  3. The vapor quality you’re able to get is much better since you can precisely control the temperature


  1. Since the nail stays hot for long periods of time, you need to be extra careful when using them especially indoors
