The KandyPens RUBI can be used to enjoy thinner concentrates or eliquid from a refillable pod.

Iconic Cookies SF branding drapes the Nova which houses a ceramic heating element and 650mAh variable voltage battery offering voltages of 3.2V, 3.5V, and 3.9V.

One of the more “old school” vape pens on this list, the Atmos Jump has been a mainstay in the portable vape pen world. The 1200mAh battery inside the Jump Vaporizer rivals almost any other vape pen on the market and delivers thick vapor every pull. An optimized temperature or around 400°F heats your material just to the point of combustion, without going over. The Jump uses convection heating to heat the air around your material as opposed to heating it directly, which keeps the true flavor of your dry herb in play as you enjoy thick vapor.

MJ Arsenal has been making some of the most compact and effective mini rigs since 2018. The Ursa represents one of their more “toned down” mini rigs, but it gets the job done very well. The 100% quartz banger included with the Ursa Mini Rig finds a nice balance between heat-up time and flavor production. As your vapor is formed, the base-connected disc percolator sifts your draws through water to moisture-cool them before reaching your lips. Don’t let the size fool you, the Ursa Mini Rig rips big.
