Why You Might Need A Mini Rig
Concentrate consumption technology has moved fast these last few years. Those who fancied concentrates used to have to rely on large glass rigs but now can enjoy draws from variable voltage vape pens or even induction heated desktop units.
These high-tech options certainly have their place for on-the-go users or those who don’t want to pack a torch, but one of the newest (and smallest) trends in the concentrate world might be the best option for those wanting to boost cloud size and enhance their flavor experience.
Of course, we’re talking about mini rigs. Here at vapor.com we stock the latest mini rigs from MJ Arsenal, a homegrown Denver, CO company, and always enjoy anytime a new model comes across our desks. We’re going to break down just what makes mini rigs so special and outline a few of our favorite MJ Arsenal designs.
Let’s dive in!
What Is A Mini Rig?
Based on the name alone you probably assumed that mini rigs are...small-than-usual concentrate rigs. While it isn’t always smart to assume things, this is one instance where you’d be correct.
Mini rigs function in the exact same way as traditional concentrate rigs, just on a smaller scale. MJ Arsenal figured out that mini rigs are better equipped to handle concentrates thanks to the reduction in the volume of air inside the rig. Basically, less air means more flavor.
Aside from the fantastic flavor production, mini rigs provide more concentrated vapor than regular-sized rigs. With the smaller volume inside of the mini rig, your vapor doesn’t have anywhere to expand to, so even small amounts of material will produce thicker-than-usual draws. These draws won’t have the usual harshness of dense pulls, which makes the whole process a lot more comfortable.
One of the added benefits of owning a mini rig is the increased level of portability. A lot of MJ Arsenal’s designs feature a keychain loop for mobile concentrate users, and the borosilicate glass design ensures a shatter-proof situation should your mini rig take a tumble.
Using a mini rig is the exact same as a traditional sized setup, you’ll just need to heat your nail and add the concentrates once your desired temperature is met.
Mini Rigs We Like
Keeping a variety of shapes and percolators is what sets MJ Arsenal aside from other mini rig companies. Each piece has its own percolator, so there are options for those who put a premium on filtration options. A quartz banger is also included to ensure heightened flavor from your concentrates.
We have a multitude of MJ Arsenal mini rigs in stock, but these are our personal favorites right now.
MJ Arsenal Royale Mini Rig
This is one of MJ Arsenal’s most striking mini rigs. The Royale features a Fab-Egg percolator to help sift your vapor and moisture cool each draw; the internal chambers function as the percolator, with small holes connecting the upper and lower chambers. MJ Arsenal also gave the Royale domed walls to help recycle your vapor back into the percolator, creating double the water filtration.
MJ Arsenal Atlas Mini Rig
The MJ Arsenal Atlas is geared for the spherically-inclined concentrate users. A striking double-ball chamber not only is eye-catching it also keeps water inside of the chamber and out of your air path. Your vapor will make maximum surface area contact with the water inside of the mini rig, generating dense and smoother draws. The Atlas also features a honeycomb percolator, for added filtration.
MJ Arsenal Jammer Mini Rig
For concentrate users who want a more toned down and traditional looking mini rig, the MJ Arsenal Jammer is a fantastic choice. A base-connected percolator sends your vapor to the bottom of the chamber, encouraging fine bubbles to rise up and cool your draws. This no-frills mini rig is a fantastic daily rig, and is easy to clean when needed.
