    Did some searching, couldn't find an answer, hope this is the right place for this question. I'm trying to show a non-technical friend how great concentrates are. NO WAY she could handle a rig/torch combo. So then I thought of a pen. Seems like people get pretty good results/longevity with concentrates like wax and shatter.
    I think it would work well for her. She's a daily user, with a low/medium tolerance. What's a good inexpensive setup from ebay or fasttech?

    Thanks for the fast reply, but we're looking for an even cheaper option, she is on a low budget.

    Dr. Dabber pen, without the globe attachment. Not cheap enough?

    I understand, but a cheap pen that breaks in a week and has no warranty is not economical. Good luck

    Would love to know your results based on experience, ie have you owned one, did it break?

    Looks like $80 for the Dr. and $55 for the Ophos, don't know if that's average or includes shipping, but yeah, she's never gonna spring for that. She has a little glass tube about the size of a cigarette, that she smokes herb through, like a one-hitter! :huh: I have been trying to turn her on to vapor, but she is broke, and very non-technical. I just want to show her something that would be easy for her to use, discreet and so much healthier.

    Found a really good article: http://www.reddit.com/r/vaporents/comments/1xqipx/official_vape_pen_thread_v2_info_and_questions_go/

    For herb, take a look at the Vapor Genie. The coil is around $35, I think, and the Classic is like $55. The coil might work for her.

    at some point the amount of product saved through vaporizing trumps the price of the device

    Also an excellent point, I imagine after running a couple grams through a vape pen, you've probably saved $40 compared to combusting.

    and if your pen sucks and leaks you've just pissed away $40 worth of concentrate for nothing

    Looking for an oil pen.

    That is a good price, including the KISS cartridge.

    I vote for the $40 uptech pen too, because of the warranty and customer service.

    A cheaper option would be an Ego battery and a Divine Tribe atomizer.

    So, what does getting a bigger battery (say, by going to the regular minicron) do? Allow more hits off one batt.?

    I have the Dabbler. I've used it several times. It seems like a sturdy vape pen, the cost is $99. If you go too cheap, it may break. It serves it's purpose for what it's for. It's really a pretty basic vape pen, no extra fancy parts. I don't use it all the time.

    You dab the wax on the coil. No cartridge or anything.

    @pigfoot. Bigger battery equals longer run times and potential to run attachments with higher power demands. You cannot go wrong with ANY product from W9. Their customer service is impeccable. Their manufacturer presence here is @THC SCIENTIFIC. Almost always there to help guide customers through problems.

    +1 VB Dabbler. Excellent little pen, good taste, high quality build and a nifty very compact carrying case....

    Seego glacier with a 650 mah ego battery. Hits great, comes with 2 spare coils, replacement coils are under $4.00 a piece and the entire setup should be under $25 on eBay. I personally use the Luna but I had and liked this setup (before I gave it away) and have suggested it to others who really like it.

    I second the seego glacier, that thing is awesome. Big glass sleeve instead of a globe so it wont break in your pocket, and it's about 15 bucks on ebay.
