As a lifelong pot smoker, it was only recently that I began vaping after an unfortunate series of events left me unable to toke my stinky ganja freely. And while I still love the flower, I typically only vape wax and oil concentrate for their minimal smell and sweet taste.
My very first wax vape pen was the Atmos, an abysmal doohickey that clogged easily, drew tiny hits and couldn’t burn hot no matter how hard I tried. I tossed it in my garbage can shortly after trying in vain to pull dabs Wiz Khalifa would be impressed with. After a bit more homework I purchased my second wax vape pen, the Grenco G Pen Slim Quartz, which cost me $20. I was naive enough to believe this vape pen was the pinnacle of vape pens, at least for the price. For while it couldn’t hold that much concentrate, it provided a decent enough hit if you pulled on it long enough. It was also discreet enough that I could toke on it while waiting for the train home after work.
But I’ve recently upgraded folks, similarly to when you date a person you thought was smoking hot but then you go meet a dime and see what real sexiness is all about. That’s the Saber Vape Pen, an extremely worthwhile contraption I broke in yesterday and which has been dabbing my ass thoroughly ever since.
The Saber Vape produces huge, voluminous clouds of smoke, whether you’re dabbing concentrates or vaping flower. No longer do you need a large tool like the Dr. Dabber to dab, the Saber Vape is small enough to slip into any of your pockets and hits like a slap across the face everytime you pucker your lips and inhale.
What impresses me most about the Saber Vape Pen is not only how economical it is, but also how functional it is. Not only does it come with two heating elements, a quartz coil and ceramic bowl, but they can both be easily connected to the Saber Vape Pens battery via magnetic attachments. This is great for those days when you want to mix up your smoking experience and alternate between dabs and flower. It’s also a game changer in the sense that you no longer need to try and unscrew a wax sealed mouthpiece or heating chamber. With the Saber Vape, you simply load, click on your mouthpiece and get to vaping.
Your Saber Vape Pen also comes equipped with a dabbing tool and magnetic charger. I find the latter extremely useful as I have had the unfortunate experience in the past of breaking my charger off in their charging port. Not cool.
One experience I didn’t even realize I was having with my Grenco G Pen Slim Quartz was heating my concentrates on too high of a temperature, thereby producing a burnt taste that definitely lessened the impact of whatever I was vaping. The Saber Vape Pen has variable voltage settings so you can customize how hot you heat your wax. Turn the setting up for huge dab hits or turn it down to get a smoother, tastier hit. In addition, the vape has an auto heat setting that will bake your wax at a hot, but low temperature.

The Saber also has three temperature settings so you can experience the variations of flavors in your wax.
To turn the unit on or off, press the main button five times. When it’s on, press the button three times to cycle through the three temperature settings. The settings change colors to:
- Green: 3.7V (390-570°F)
- Blue: 3.9V (570-750°F)
- Red: 4.2V (750-895°F)
Again, while I still consider my self a dabbing/vaping newbie, the Saber Vape offers the same intense toke as a dab rig with the ease and portability of a vape pen. I’ve been able to taste flavors and accents in concentrates that were not palatable to me before due to Saber’s ability to change temp settings on the fly. Not only that, I can carry it around with me and not feel encumbered by its weight. The plastic straw mouthpiece was at first a turn-off, as I thought it would break off, melt or warp from the pens heat. But I am happy to report a few swabs of an alcohol wipe here and there and it’s as good as new.
The only gripe I have about the Saber Vape (if you could call it that) is that it can have a short battery life if you don’t keep it charged often. If you’re one of those people who are out and about all day, I would suggest charging your vape when you can throughout the day so you can maximize your dabs. Also keep in mind that you shouldn’t “over-charge” your Saber vape, as this can damage the battery.
I’m really digging my new Saber Vape and the full exposure it provides me with all my dabs. Bottom line is, if you’re looking for a portable dab rig or herb vaporizer, the Saber Vape is definitely a great option and a good investment. I can already hear the sad trombone playing over my G Pen.
