The Most Affordable Portable Dabbing Products Will Never Leave You Hanging
We’re all pulling ourselves back out of a financially wild time with some of us faring better than others. One thing we can all agree on: concentrates aren’t cheap. So, while it can be fun to act like high rollers, we have to check that bank statement and get real every once in a while. Fortunately, there are plenty of affordable devices on the market even for the most cash-strapped amongst us. Today, we’re going to take a look at 3 brands that make portable dabbing surprisingly affordable, especially when considering the performance and high quality of their products.
California’s Xvape has made a name for themselves by providing products of surprising quality on the budget side of the price point spectrum. The lowest priced Xvape portable dabbing device that we carry at Dab Nation is the Xvape Cricket Pocket Dabber, priced at a staggering $25.00. That’s cheaper than some disposable models! Being that this is such a low priced wax pen, you’ll find that the Cricket’s battery life, vapor quality and temperature range aren’t exactly top tier, but they’re also nowhere near what you’d expect from a $25 dab pen. But if you’re looking for a simple, straightforward, discreet pocket wax pen that still packs plenty of performance for its shockingly low price point, the Cricket will do nicely.
For nearly double the price of the Cricket, you can invest in the $49.00 Xvape V-One Plus, a bulkier wax pen with a much more powerful performance. Since the V-One Plus relies on a ceramic heating element, its hits boast improved flavor and its vapor is more consistent. It also has a more generous battery (1500mAh) than the Cricket. Another interesting feature of the V-One Plus is its convenient dab container, built right into the device itself. Though twice the price of the Cricket, the improved quality of the V-One Plus makes that a small price to pay for many people… especially when you consider it’s still under $50.
The Xvape Aria is easily one of the most popular Xvape products that we carry. Priced at just $79.99, it’s a dual use portable device with textured skin for a reliable grip and a decent range of color options. Boasting a generous temperature range of 212°F to 464°F adjustable to a single degree, it gives you much more control over your experience than the previous Xvape models. With a rapid 20-second heat up time, ceramic heating system and state-of-the-art haptic feedback technology, it’s a shockingly robust portable dabbing device for its price tag.
Colorado’s Dip Devices are perhaps best known for their pocket dabbing device, the Dipper, but recent years have seen them unveiling even more affordable options that rival their predecessor in convenience. The first of these devices is the EVRI, a 3-in-1 dab kit with interchangeable tips that allow it to be used as a dab straw, a 510-threaded cartridge compatible device or even as a pod-style device. If that’s somehow not already sounding like a deal to you, the EVRI is designed to be an ever-evolving gadget with Dip Devices promising further attachments in the not-so-distant future.
The latest addition to the Dip Devices family is also the smallest and by far the most affordable. The Little Dipper is priced at a staggering $29.99, just slightly above the Xvape Cricket. Operating with a simple dab straw design, this diminutive pocket dabbing device has earned rave reviews for its impressive battery power, rivaling competitors with twice the capacity despite its size. With 3 versatile power settings and replaceable atomizers, the Little Dipper will likely deliver much more than you’re expecting.
While the other portable dabbing devices considered affordable by this blog have all been priced at under $100, the Focus V CARTA is definitely in a different category. It retails at $250.00 but, unlike the dab pens and pocket dab straws on this list, it’s a Bluetooth-enabled e-rig. Therefore, when compared to other portable e-rigs, we would consider CARTA to be one of the most affordable options and another example of value surpassing its price tag. One of the features that sets CARTA apart from its competitors is its backup system of 18350 batteries, meaning you don’t need to stay tied to a power outlet. When your e-rig runs out of juice, the batteries take over. If you’re sitting on a stockpile of batteries, you could actually go years without a charge. Planning a scientific excursion to Antarctica or a prolonged sabbatical into the thickest jungles of South America? CARTA’s the e-rig for you. With the free Focus V app, you can even dial in your desired temperature to a single degree. Rounded out by its stylish look, smooth and flavorful hits (courtesy of that chic glass top) and ease of use, the CARTA sets the value standard for the e-rig corner of portable dabbing.
We’re in a golden age of dabbing when no one has to truly live like a pauper and the most affordable devices outrank even the flashiest models of just a few years ago. Still, getting real value for your dollar can sometimes feel like a challenge, so it’s always a relief to recognize the affordable options that deliver more than you’d expect. Whether you’re searching for a backup piece or just trying to get by on what you can after a rough year, these products are among the most affordable portable dabbing options you’ll find on the market that still bring you considerable value. So, whether you’re rubbing 2 pennies together or 2 hundred dollar bills together, we rest assured that one of the devices on this list is taking good care of you.
