The Dr. Dabber Light is an extremely discreet vape pen for wax and concentrates. It’s quite a bit smaller than the larger vaporizer pen option from Dr. Dabber, the Aurora. We actually got the opportunity to try out the Aurora and put a review together. Despite being smaller and much more affordable, the Light performed extremely well, virtually on par with the Aurora.
Dr. Dabber Light Review
The basic Dr. Dabber Light Kit costs $49.95 USD with the option to upgrade to the ‘bundle’ which includes extra atomizers for $69.95. We’re reviewing the basic kit, and we’re pretty excited about it!
Vaporizer pens are a dime a dozen these days, there are a lot to choose from and they aren’t too different from one and other. The components are all the same on paper, an atomizer, a battery and a mouthpiece, despite this they can actually vary in quality quite a bit.
Dr. Dabber is known for their quality and their customer satisfaction, making it one of the more popular choices when it comes to concentrate vape pens.
Found in the box:
- Light Vaporizer Pen
- Extra glass wick atomizer + mouthpiece
- Concentrate storage ball
- Loading tool
- USB charger
After reviewing some of the other Dr. Dabber products I had some pretty high expectations of their Light vape pen. I expected high quality components, a durable and solid feel and a pen that really rips. Well, the Light delivered on all fronts!
In classic Dr. Dabber style, the Light pen is very stylish and discreet. The only ‘flashy’ bit would be the blue light that illuminates when the vape pen is being used, otherwise it’s a matte black, stealthy piece of art.
Pens can be kind of fickle when it comes to how much concentrate you need to load in order to get a proper pull. After some serious testing, the Light performed perfectly with a full oven as well as a near empty oven. You will only get one or two solid pulls when loading a modest oven, but what else would you expect?
The Light uses the 5-click on/off safety feature, and you simply hold down the button as you inhale after the unit is unlocked. The lithium-ion battery lasts a good while on a full charge, another expectation I had after reviewing the Aurora pen (which has a much larger battery).
Generally I’m not a fan of plastic mouthpieces held on with a classic o-ring. The taste and smell leech into the vapor and you never get a true flavor profile. Despite the Light using a plastic mouthpiece, the vapor flavor was fantastic! I didn’t get any plastic flavor or smell when using the pen, even after a lengthy session.
While the Dr. Dabber light feels pretty solid, I would hesitate to carry it around loose in my pocket for the day. After all the unit itself is very small (a bit bigger than a cigarette), so I would caution against any potential stress to the pen if you want to keep it around for a while. It does come with a 3-month manufacturer warranty for peace of mind though.
Size and style. Chances are that if you’re in the market for a vape pen you want it to be very portable and inconspicuous. The size alone makes the Light a great vape pen for on-the-go, but the discreet styling takes it a step further. A sleek matte black exterior with a single blue light at the tip when the vape’s in use makes the Light one of the sleekest and most stylish vape pens we’ve ever used.
It could be the coolest looking vape pen in the world, but if it doesn’t work well it’s good for nothing. In true Dr. Dabber style the Light performs like a top-tier vape pen, even rivaling concentrate vaporizers that are twice the size and the price.
I love the fact that you can pack a tiny oven, or pack it right to the top and still get a quality rip right off the bat. Sometimes you just want a rip or two, but many vape pens won’t accommodate anything less than a full oven. The Dr. Dabber Light allows users to pack as much or as little as they want without sacrificing vapor quality and overall function.
Vape pens are small and seemingly fragile by design. The Light does a great job marrying the idea of a super-portable and sleek vape pen with a high-quality, luxurious feel.
This might sound like I’m reaching, and I kind of am, but the one issue I have with the design of the Light is the power button. It works just fine, and I like the rubbery feel of it, my issue is that it sticks out further than necessary. The only reason I even noticed that the button sticks out a little too far is that the rest of the pen is so sleek that it becomes kind of noticeable.
After using the Aurora I really came to enjoy the ceramic mouthpiece. It probably wouldn’t be feasible to include a ceramic mouthpiece with a vape pen that costs under $50, and I really don’t have an issue with the plastic mouthpiece included with the Light. It doesn’t leach any nasty flavor and the air flow is acceptable, I just like that ceramic mouthpiece a lot.
I loved the Dr Dabber Light vape pen. You might be able to tell that I was really reaching coming up with some cons for this thing. It’s just a really fantastic vape pen all and all, I wouldn’t call it cheap at $49.95 but it is well worth the money if you’re in the market for a quality vape pen. It’s well worth shelling out the extra $10-$15 to get the Light over some of the comparable vape pens out there.
What I found shocking was how similar the Light performed compared to the Aurora. If you were thinking of trying out Dr. Dabber for the first time the Light is a great place to start. You can pick one up for pretty cheap and get a good sense of what to expect from the company and the other vape models they offer. I’m convinced that you’ll fall in love with the Light as I did, and if you feel like upgrading then the Aurora is the obvious next-step.
