Nowadays there are tons of wax vape pens that have flooded the market. There are so many models that it is hard to decipher between the pens that will turn out to be a waste of money and the ones that will create a thick, delicious vapor from every single draw. Sometimes the high price tag of a wax vape pen can be off-putting, but when it comes to getting a good deal you’ve got to know some inside tips. A dab pen is all about what kind of heating element is featured in the pen. The second step to finding a quality wax vape pen is to find one made with a battery that will last long enough to be used for a day or night out on the town.
This list has been compiled with you in mind. We’ve hacked the system and put together a group of 6 vaporizers that not only vape wax but also have a price tag under $100. Some of them are monumental because of their medical grade manufacturing materials and some because of their super cool all ceramic chamber. All of the vapes on this list have some special features while also garnering praise for their affordability.
Linx Hypnos Vapor Pen
The Linx Hypnos wax vape pen is a game changer in the portable wax vaporizer pen market for multiple reasons. The pen is only 10cm long with a 14mm diameter. The Linx Hypnos only weighs 0.1 lbs which makes it not only small but also lightweight. The portable sized pen fits secretly into the palm of your hand. The body is a sleek, stainless steel sheen separated by one LED lit button which is a huge difference between this and other vape pens. The mouthpiece is made of glass, something that I’ve never seen from a vapor pen at this price point. The mouthpiece also screws on and off for more ease in both storage and cleaning. Pictured at the bottom of the 650 mAh battery is a geometric Linx logo that is not only hip but clean looking. The battery can be fully charged in only 2 hours through the wall adapter and/or a USB port. Just 3 rapid clicks of the front button turns the unit on and off, locking the piece from vaping at unknown times. This will help to maintain battery life and the materials that may be packed into the pen.
Another way that the Linx Hypnos wax vape pen is setting precedent in 2016 is by having a completely medical grade vapor pathway that is manufactured with absolutely no plastic, paint, glue or fiber. The ceramic chamber vapes 0.1-0.3 grams of wax absolutely and without burning tastes or smells. That is probably due to the four temperature settings all controlled by the one button on the front of the pen. Temperature settings are marked by colors and labelled by the moniker Low which turns the light Blue, Medium Low turning the light green, Medium High which changes the button to yellow, and High depicted appropriately by red. The preset temperatures are perfect for vaporizing every consistency of concentrate to absolution. The preset temps are lower vaping temperatures but that is in answer to the surge of interest in terpenes. These temperatures will ensure the real flavor of the terpenes with every draw. Just three fast clicks of the main buttons switches the temperatures and the color of the LED light. This is by far one of the best dab pens right now, surely deserving of a top place on this list.
Linx Hypnos Vape Kit Comes With:
- Hypnos 650mAh Rechargeable Battery
- Hypnos Atomizer

- USB Charger
Source Orb 3 – Premium Kit
SOURCEvapes definitely created this kit with the vapor connoisseur in mind. The sleek metallic body type comes in 3 colors: black chrome, royal gold and chrome. The simple to use system is controlled by 1 large button and an LED light that illuminates it. 7 different atomizers fit into the beautiful tulip shell and mouthpiece completely and seamlessly. Each premium vape kit comes with 2 dry herb atomizers, a ceramic donut for wax or oil and 4 different types of wax coil atomizers. The Source Orb 3 vape pen gets a full charge in 2 hours which will deliver an entire day of vaping with no worries about losing charge. Along with being a fast charger, the Source battery is also variable voltage so the power output can match whichever atomizer and material is in the tulip. Voltages run between 3.2 and 4.6, 3.2-3.6 being best for wax and oils and 4.2-4.6 when vaporizing dry herbs. Control the voltage with a simple spin of the dial located at the bottom of the battery.
One of the wax atomizer attachments features one quartz rod that is wrapped in titanium, another features 2 quartz rods wrapped in titanium. There is also a ceramic chamber with a titanium coil and a wicked version. Wax vapers can’t complain because SOURCEvapes has made every single skillet attachment available in the Source Orb 3 kit. The included ceramic donut works with oils but also vapes almost every type of concentrate perfectly. Every atomizer holds anywhere from 0.2-0.3 of wax, budder, oil and all other types of chemically withdrawn concentrates. It fits perfectly on this list because it is basically 7 different vaporizers combined into one kit for under $80.

Ultra-compact KandyPens Donuts concentrate pen features a candy shell available in 6 different colors; pink, turquoise, red, black, white and purple. Each pen comes with a 510 threaded battery that can easily interchange with other dry herb chambers or wax atomizers. The Donuts pen is lightweight but still remains sturdy. KandyPens is changing the game with their all ceramic SloBurn technology skillet. It vaporizes wax at the perfect temperature so that there is absolutely no residue left in the atomizer. Every Donut is completely wickless, cottonless and uses technology to ensure there is no rapid heating that will burn the materials inside. With only 3 total parts, the KandyPens Donuts wax vape pen is super portable without any easy to lose pieces which makes it perfect for the clumsier vaper.
Only 1 button on the front of the KandyPens battery triggers the on and off switch as well as switching between 3 pre-set temperature settings. The K button on the front of the battery will change the temperature with just 3 rapid clicks. Every 3 clicks the LED lit button will change colors corresponding with the temperature. When first activated the atomizer will begin to heat to 350° and shine Red, with 3 clicks the button will shine green while heating to 390° and after the last 3 clicks the button will shine blue while it heats to 430°. Each of the preset temperatures has been chosen specifically to vape wax at the perfect temperature. The pen fits up to 0.5 grams of wax and concentrates. Unlike a lot of portable wax pens it’s definitely a good chamber for a party bowl with more than 1 person hitting the piece. This one is perfect for our list because it is tiny and portable, vapes the most wax we’ve seen well than a lot of wicked atomizers. All of this affordably under $100.
KandyPens Donuts kit includes:
- 1 mouthpiece
- 1 Donuts chamber

Dr. Dabber Ghost Kit or Light Kit
Both of these great portable vapor kits feature an atomizer, battery and mouthpiece set up like a lot of the usual wax vaporizers. This heavy hitting wax vape pens comes in a small, portable package that is suitable for travelling in any sized pocket. The battery only needs 2 hours for a full charge which creates enough battery life for 200-400 puffs depending on usage. This translates easily in 2 days of use with one simple charge using the USB charger that fits into a wall adapter and a car charger. Dr. Dabber wax kit built all batteries with a 5-click locking mechanism to ensure that the battery doesn’t run out while it isn’t even being used. All of the manufacturing materials are high grade and give off very little to no weird taste with the first couple of uses. With Dr. Dabber Ghost the band around the power button lights up blue to let you know that the unit is on. Both wax vapor pens are simple in design but flawlessly integrate technology.
The heating chamber uses a silica wick wrapped with a titanium coil to seamlessly vaporize wax with very little to no residue. The chambers in both Dr. Dabber Ghost and Light vape pens are pretty much identical. They can fit up to 0.3 grams of wax which will deliver about 2-7 draws depending on lung capacity and inhalation intensity. Each unit will come with a charger and wax tool for ease in loading the chamber, either of the vape pens is available for under $80.

Like the other KandyPens option on this list, the glossy coated shell comes in some beautiful colors but unlike the KandyPens Donuts, the KandyPens Galaxy shell is coated in glitter. Grab a Galaxy vape pen in purple (Venus), turquoise (Pluto), white (Jupiter), matte black (Draco) and shiny black (Mercury). The three part pen consists of the quartz atomizer, the 510 threaded battery and the mouthpiece. Each KandyPens Galaxy vape pen features a 5-click lock mechanism to be sure that nothing gets vaped without your knowledge. This will also extend the lifespan of the battery. The KandyPens Galaxy vape pen charges by screwing onto the battery and plugging into a USB port. It should achieve a full charge within an hour which should deliver about a day’s worth of portable vaping.
Another way that the KandyPens Galaxy relates to the KandyPens Donuts is with the epicly sized wax chamber. It can also fit 0.5 grams but it uses a different type of heating element than the Donuts. Three different temperature settings help to create an amber glowing wax every single draw. To set the temperatures it only takes one button and the setting is indicated by the LED lit color. The chamber is heated by two quartz rods wrapped in titanium coils. Quartz helps to reduce any wax from sticking to the chamber, all wax will burn clean and basically disintegrate. It hits like a dream with thick vapor that tastes delicious no matter the temperature setting. The Galaxy deserves to be on the list because it creates the most delicious vapor, packs a big old bowl and it comes with a hard shell carrying case; all under $100.

Glass Globe Vaporizer
The Glass Globe Vaporizer is a wax vape pen from King Pen Vapes our self and the reason we believe it belongs on this list is because it is one of our best sellers. With all of the new technology and different materials, the glass globe vaporizer is truly a classic. The 510 threaded 1100 mAh ego-T battery screws onto a USB plug wall charger to charge. After being fully charged the battery will last for up to 10 hours of continuous use. The battery is activated by 5 quick clicks of the power button, when it turns on the light will shine blue as an indicator. This 5-click locking mechanism will ensure a longer battery life for the globe vape pen. The atomizer is shrouded in glass with a silica wick with a ceramic coil or titanium coil used as a heating element. All of the components of this vape are stock, which is a bonus because replacement parts are not only easy to come by but also inexpensive right from King Pen Vapes. One thing we think is very cool with this vape pen is that you can see the vapor forming into a cloud in the globe as soon as you press the power button.
Just hold the button down for 5 seconds and inhale for the easiest vapor at the perfect temperature. Holding the button down for too long will only stop the coil from working at that one, but it will turn right back on when you press it again. It is super easy to use but also vapes all types of wax concentrates perfectly and comes with a King Pen Vapes carrying case. Another great thing you can use with this glass globe wax vaporizer is the glass vubbler. It is a water pipe essentially for vape pens. It comes in two forms and both consist of adding water inside it. If any of the pieces break, they can all be found in our Vaporizer Accessories page.
Glass Globe Vaporizer Features:
(1) Glass Globe Vaporizer Attachment
(1) 1100 mAh eGo Battery
(1) USB Charger
(1) Carry Case
