What are Enail Vaporizers?

Enail vaporizers, or electronic nails, are devices designed for the consumption of concentrates or “dabs” in a more controlled manner. They are often used in conjunction with a dab rig and provide a consistent temperature for vaporization, eliminating the need for a torch and offering a more precise and enjoyable dabbing experience.

How Do They Work?

Enails work by using an electric heating element (the e-nail) that is connected to a controller box which regulates the temperature. This allows the user to set a precise temperature for vaporizing their concentrates. Once the desired temperature is reached, the concentrate is placed onto the nail and vaporized, with the vapor then being inhaled through the rig.

Coil Types

There are several types of coils used in enail vaporizers, including:

  1. Flat Coils: These are typically used with flat-top nails and provide even heating.
  2. Barrel Coils: These are designed to wrap around the nail, providing heat from all sides.
  3. E-nail Coils: These are specifically designed for use with e-nails and come in a variety of sizes to fit different nails.

What Materials to Use

Enail vaporizers are designed for use with waxes and concentrates. These can range from shatter and crumble to budder and oil. It’s important to use the right type of concentrate for your specific device, as some may not be compatible with certain forms of concentrate.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Clean Regularly: Regular cleaning can help maintain the performance of your enail and prolong its lifespan.
  2. Use the Right Temperature: Different concentrates may vaporize best at different temperatures. Experiment to find the best temperature for your specific concentrate.
  3. Allow the Nail to Heat Up: Before placing your concentrate on the nail, allow it to reach the desired temperature. This will ensure optimal vaporization.


  1. How often should I clean my enail?
    • It’s recommended to clean your enail after every use to maintain optimal performance.
  2. Can I use dry herbs in my enail?
    • No, enails are designed specifically for use with waxes and concentrates.
  3. What temperature should I set my enail to?
    • This can vary depending on the specific concentrate, but a range of 315°F to 750°F is often recommended.
  4. Can I leave my enail on all the time?
    • While some people do leave their enails on for extended periods, it’s generally recommended to turn it off when not in use to prolong the lifespan of the device.
  5. Why is my enail not heating up?
    • This could be due to a number of reasons, such as a faulty power supply, a broken heating coil, or a problem with the controller box. Check these components and replace if necessary.
