What is a Box Mod Vaporizer Pen?

by Chelsea O. January 10, 2020

A box mod is, more or less, a massive battery that has customizable attachments that can be interchanged as long as the threading matches both the box mod and the attachment. Threading is what allows the attachment (like a mouthpiece or atomizer) to attach or ‘hook’ into the box mod. Box mods are called that because they are generally boxier than the traditional vape pen. This tradeoff on size has a number of implications but often times it means: 1) that the box mod has a more powerful battery 2) that the box mod is more durable and 3) that the box mod is more compatible with different accessories than the average vape pen. Read this article to have a deeper look at what a box mod is.

Vaping Wax vs Dabbing Wax - Complete Explanation

by Courtney T. December 30, 2019

So, in general, these terms can often be used interchangeably and will more often than not be understood rather clearly.

This can be with a wax vape pen or with a traditional dab rig, etc. While this isn’t a firm rule, it generally plays out that this is probably the more generic term. Vaping wax, however, is the exact same thing but more often than not people will expect there to be an actual vape or vape pen. Read this guide to get a better understanding of the differences between vaping and dabbing wax concentrates.
