How's the Dr. Dabber Switch Vapor Quality?

Now it’s time to set aside aesthetics and technical specifications to focus on what really determines the quality of a vape: the quality of its vapor.

Any connoisseur will emphasize the importance of temperature on the style of vapor you’re experiencing. What determines the best vapor quality will depend largely on each individual user. Some will prefer flavor-driven, lower temperatures while the cloud chasers will tend to stick to higher temperatures. Regardless of your preference, the Dr. Dabber Switch boasts a wide spectrum of temperature settings, each with its own balance of vapor density and flavor preservation. We’d recommend as much experimenting as possible to determine what works best for you. 

Is The Dr. Dabber Switch Easy to Clean?

The Dr. Dabber Switch is super easy to clean. In fact, it’s just as simple to clean as it is to set up and get going with. It’s important to ensure the glass and heating elements are cool to touch before cleaning to avoid any burns. 

To perform the clean, take the device apart in order to clean each element individually. They may all be cleaned using isopropyl-soaked wipes or cleaning swabs to wipe away residue and combat staining. 

There’s also a self-cleaning cycle. To activate this, press and hold the + button until the heat has risen to the highest temperature. Rather than let go of the + button, keep holding it for a further 5 seconds. Once the LEDs shine red the self-clean will begin.
