An enail, also known as an electronic nail, is a device used for heating concentrates such as wax, shatter, or oil. It consists of a heating element or nail controlled by a temperature controller, and eliminates the need for a traditional blowtorch by allowing users to set their desired temperature for accurate heating. Enails offer increased safety, convenience, and portability compared to traditional dab rigs and come in a variety of shapes and sizes with additional features like adjustable temperature, removable heating elements, nails, and rechargeable batteries.
The difference between the enail display screen temperature and the nail surface temperature is important to understand when using a dab enail. The display screen temperature is the temperature reading displayed on the enail's screen and is based on data from the temperature sensor near the nail. However, this temperature may not always be 100% accurate due to factors such as sensor placement or enail calibration. The surface temperature of the nail, on the other hand, is the actual temperature in contact with the concentrate and directly impacts the flavor, potency, and overall dabbing experience. To get the best results, it's recommended to use a probe thermometer to measure the surface temperature and use the display screen temperature as a guide.
The best temperature for dabbing with an enail varies depending on personal preference, the type of concentrates used, and desired potency. Generally, low temperatures (450-550°F) are best for preserving delicate flavors and aromas, while high temperatures (650-750°F) are best for maximizing potency. Medium temperatures (550-650°F) provide a balanced experience with a moderate potency and good flavor. For specific concentrates such as live resin or terp sauce, the recommended temperature may range from 600-750°F. Experimentation with different temperatures can help you determine the best temperature for your needs.
