Looking for the best portable eNail on the market? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’re here to list down the latest and the best today’s industry has to offer when it comes to portable eNails.

But what is a portable eNail exactly?

Well, for the uninitiated, a portable eNail is an electronic vaporizer designed and engineered for wax concentrate consumption. Pretty much like a traditional dab rig, a portable eNail can be attached to a waterpipe or a bong. There are also other eNails that counts as standalone devices and come with their own sets of water filtration devices such as what we know today as eRigs. Both eNails and eRigs employ the same principle when heating your favorite wax concentrates. Just like your conventional dab rig, they use a heating element attached to a cup, a bowl, or an atomizer to heat your concentrates and extract the active ingredients into the vapor.

A portable eNail can be used to vaporize and consume a slew of extracts with various consistencies, it also is capable of delivering potent rips that’s relatively smooth because of its water filtration and moisture conditioning features. That’s why they’re coveted especially amongst wax concentrate consumption circles. But there’s more to versatility, power, and smoothness of vapor to portable eNails. That said, here are some of the best eNails on the market today.

  1. Yocan Torch 2020

Let’s start this list on a high note. The reason why the Yocan Torch 2020 is at the top of our list is because it has a lot to offer to the average consumer at such an affordable price. The brand that manufactures this portable eNail has made a name for itself by producing devices that rival the quality of devices twice (and sometimes thrice) its price. Here are some of the features that make the Yocan Torch 2020 a definite standout.

  • Yocan Quartz Dual Coils
  • Yocan Quartz Tri Coils
  • Male and Female Glass Adapter
  • 1100mAh Battery Capacity
  • Inclusive Metal and Glass Tube

On paper, the Yocan Torch 2020 seems to offer an impressive resume. It comes with two heating elements right off the bat that lets you customize and personalize your sessions. The brand’s quartz dual coils offer flavorful vapor production while the quartz tri coils provide consumers with more potent rips. The coils are powered by a 1100mAh battery that offers substantial performance in between sessions. There's also an inclusive metal and glass tube that adds to the level of personalization the Yocan Torch 2020 has to offer. The inclusive glass attachment also lets you use the Yocan Torch 2020 with a slew of water pipes you might have lying around.

What’s good about it?

This portable eNail does it in simple and straightforward fashion. The Yocan Torch 2020 works pretty much like a dab pen and that’s why consumers who are transitioning from using a wax pen to an eNail will find the shift quite easy. And of course, it’s also cheap.

  1. Puffco Peak

Considered by many as the golden standard in eRigs, the Puffco Peak literally as at the Peak of the portable eNail food chain. However, its somewhat exorbitant price makes it less accessible to the everyday consumer, or maybe that’s the price of buying an all-in-one device. Here are some of Puffco Peak’s best-known features.

  • Preset Temperature Settings
  • 1400mAh Battery
  • Intelligent Temperature Calibration
  • Inclusive Glass Attachment

While others might argue that the Peak is just another glorified eNail, it definitely has its advantages. Although it does not have additional atomizers, the Peak does come equipped with preset temperature settings. This allows a decent level of customization with the lowest temp setting giving you flavorful dabs and the highest increasing the vapor’s potency. It also has a smart temperature calibration function which automatically fine-tunes the temperature level so you get consistent results.

The Puffco Peak also has an inclusive glass attachment sitting at the top of the battery which means you won’t need any water pipe for it to function. The only downside is that it’s only compatible with the glass attachment it comes out of the box with. There are many glass attachments made compatible with the Peak but they’re often handcrafted by specialty glass makers.

  1. KandyPens Oura

Another all-in-one unit to make our list is the Oura from KandyPens. Why is it on our list? Well, this eRig doesn’t beat around the bush. It also has features that are common for most similar devices like the aforementioned Puffco Peak, but what sets it apart from the competition is that it offers a lifetime warranty. Yes, even if you’ve been a follower of the eNail and eRig platform, a lifetime warranty on similar devices is something that’s unheard of. Apart from the lifetime guarantee, here are a few features that put the Oura on the map.

  • USB-C Technology
  • 3000mAh Battery Capacity
  • Preset Temperature Settings
  • Zinc Alloy Housing
  • Quartz and Ceramic Cups

Like the Yocan Torch 2020, this device comes with different heating elements that’s complemented by the preset temperature settings which allows for unparalleled customization. The material used to house the device is made from Zinc Alloy which strengthens the device and gives it a lighter weight overall. It also has smart touch sensors in lieu of a tactile button which helps give the Oura a seamless look but can be annoying since your fingers can easily trigger the sensors when you hold the Oura in your hands. It does take a bit of getting used to but once you get a hang of it, the experience is worthwhile. Like the Peak, the Oura from KandyPens is not cheap. So, make sure you save up for it.

  1. G Pen Connect

The G Pen Connect is in a league similar to the Yocan Torch 2020. It’s a portable eNail that “connects” (see what they did there?) to a water pipe of your choice. It’s also compatible with a wide range of water pipes but comes at a cost since you’ll have to purchase these adapters separately. It has a ceramic heating element and preset temperature settings so it does offer a decent level of customization. It also comes at quite a steep price. Here are some of its features.

  • 850mAh Battery
  • Preset Temperature Settings
  • Reverse Airflow System

For all intents and purposes, the G Pen Connect is a versatile device. It has three temperature levels, something that’s important for wax vaporizers, and a patented reverse airflow system. However, what made it a compelling device is its magnetic connections which makes usage and operation quite seamless and convenient.
