The Dip Devices’ Dipper Vaporizer is a handheld dab device used to vaporize concentrates. The first of its kind, this portable dab pen has dual functions, and both produce thick clouds. It looks and handles like other handheld vape pens, and gets the job done as good or better than a more traditional rig and torch setup.
The Dipper uses an internal, rechargeable battery and the choice of two different atomizers, one of which lets you dab straight from the concentrate container. The other atomizer can be used to pre-load concentrate.
Below, find out everything you need to know about the innovative Dipper.
How does the Dipper work?
The Dipper is as easy to use as it is to hit. One main button controls the operations, which work the same with either atomizer included in the setup. Press the button five times to turn it on or off — the light will blink through the colors as visual confirmation. Press and hold the main button to activate the heating cycle — which lasts up to 15 seconds before automatic cool down — indicated by the light shutting off. There is an auto shut-off after two minutes of inactivity for safety and to save battery. Note: it is not safe to use the device while charging.

There are three temperature settings to choose from: blue (low), green (medium), and red (high), ranging from 450°F (green) to 600°F (red). Press the main button three times to change between the temperature settings, and the selected color will flash.
How to use the atomizer dip tip
The Dipper package includes two atomizer tips, one of which will already come connected to the device. This is the tip that allows you to dab right from the concentrate container, no loading necessary. Press and hold to activate the heat, then gently touch the tip to the concentrate and inhale slowly from the other end of the Dipper.
How to use the quartz atomizer
The quartz crystal atomizer can be swapped in for the atomizer tip to use as a pre-loaded vape. The quartz crystal atomizer has a deep chamber where a small amount of concentrate can be loaded (not too much), and then the mouthpiece cover is placed over the atomizer.
Depending on how gooey your wax concentrate is, it’s a good idea to keep the device upright once it is loaded. When ready to use, select your preferred temperature setting and hold the button down to activate the heat. After a few seconds, inhale slowly through the mouthpiece that covers the internal quartz crystal atomizer.
The Dipper’s unique design
Everything fits together securely and feels sturdy, and switching between the atomizers is easy. The dual end mouthpiece is clever, allowing consumers to use either the mouthpiece cap with the pack and go quartz atomizer, or the built-in mouthpiece with the dip tip atomizer.
The dip tip is a more precise hit to maximize flavor, or otherwise customize your dab. On the dip tip, the heat coils are well contained and don’t feel dangerous, but any semi-exposed heat source requires caution. Similarly, the temperature range is high, so it can be easy to overdo it and feel and taste the burn. It’s so efficient that gently inhaling is enough to get thick, stoney clouds.
How do you clean it?
Cleaning the device and all of its parts is simple. The atomizers can be removed from the device and soaked in alcohol for an hour and then rinsed off to remove sticky residue. The included long cotton swabs can be used with alcohol to clean the inside of the device and any touch points that may accumulate residue. A thorough cleaning after every few uses, or whenever you notice build up, is recommended.
What’s the appeal?
Overall this is a thoughtfully designed and versatile device that makes dabbing fun. It packs a powerful punch and gets the job done. Avoiding the mess of loading and sticky tools is a big plus. Another feature is how portable it is; it’s comparable in size to other vape pens with a discreet design. The versatility that the internal quartz atomizer offers is significant too, making it possible to have easy pack-and-go dabs within one small device.
At $115 it’s a steal for anyone who wants to try dip dabbing and/or wants a discreet portable way to enjoy dabs.
