Picking The Best Dab Pen Battery | A Wax Vaping Guide

Dab Pen Battery

When it comes to the best dab pen, batteries matter. Don’t get left high and dry with a battery that isn’t up to the task. In this article, we take a look at what dab rigs require from their batteries for better, more consistent dabs.

Dab Pen Energy Usage

On average, dab pens operate at a higher temperature than vape pens. For electric dab rigs, that means a higher energy usage and a bigger drain on the battery.

For vaping cannabis, most people use temperatures between 315℉ and 365℉. While some people vape THCV at temps as high as 468℉, this is an extremely high outlier.

For dabbing, on the other hand, temperatures can range from 315℉ to 900℉. Generally, temperatures above 600℉ are not recommended as it causes combustion, which can release carcinogens and has a burnt taste.

Even low-temperature dabbing has a range up to 450℉. As such, it’s important to have a pen with a high enough energy output. Greentank batteries have a higher mAh, with those in the Torrch portable dab rig reaching 1500-2000 mAh.

This puts the Torrch battery as one of the most powerful on the market. As a result, it not only delivers on energy output but also has a large battery capacity. So you can vape more often and more reliably between charges.

Vape ChargingCharge Time

Because of the high energy demands of vaping wax, many dab pens take a long time to charge. It’s important to find a balance between how long a battery takes to charge and how long that charge lasts. Generally speaking, if a battery is designed for extremely fast charging, it doesn’t hold a charge as long, and also degrades quickly.

Li-ion batteries are good for dab pens because they can be designed to strike that balance. Our batteries are designed for relatively quick charges and can offer long battery life without sacrificing power.


The original dabbing method was to heat up a knife on a stove element and then use it to vaporize hash. Fortunately, today’s technology is much safer and more convenient. You don’t need to lug around a stove with you anywhere you want to hit a dab. The emergence of dab pens has made it easy to vape wax anywhere.

To maximize convenience and portability, it’s good to have a smaller battery. You want a battery that is large enough to deliver the needed power, but small enough to fit in a handheld device. This keeps your dab pen lightweight, portable, and discreet.


Since they operate at high energy outputs, dab pen batteries need the right materials. Picking the right materials ensures safety, protecting users and the vaporizer itself. All of our vape battery tubes use SUS 304 stainless steel.

Stainless steel does more than resist stains. It’s a durable, lightweight, practical metal. SpaceX is even building a rocket out of it. In part, this is because it’s durability performs even under high heat, where other metals fail.

SUS 304 has low electrical and thermal conductivity. This makes the battery safe to use, even at high temperatures and with the Torrch’s high mAh. It also prevents internal damage to the battery. As well, this steel is corrosion resistant, for a long-lasting, reliable battery.
