The Boost e-Rig Is Truly a Portable Mini Dabbing Rig
We took places in my living room; my dabbing colleague, my shatter and I. Unpacking the Dr. Dabber Boost e-Rig was the best part, this is when I realized it’s going to be my #1 portable mini oil rig. Yes, you heard me right, portable mini oil rig!
The Boost e-Rig is a hybridization of a traditional dedicated desktop oil rig and a dabbing pen. Giving smooth clouded hits like a desktop rig without the unflavored taste you might get from dabbing pens.
Tell Me More
To start using your Boost e-Rig you will need first to choose one out of three nail options:
The Boost comes with the titanium nail screwed in place as the default/standard nail and it delivers good results. It works nice, I could feel the taste and get clouds out of it. It’s just that it feels pretty average with average taste and average clouds.
To use this nail press the power button 3 times to start heating it up. The Boost will show white light and change to blue after 25 seconds indicating it is ready to use. The nail will continue heating for 20 more seconds before shutting down.
- Temperature reaches 515 F after 25 seconds
- Temperature reaches 610 F after 45 seconds
Quartz & Ceramic Nails
The quartz nail absolutely knocks off the other two. I always prefer quartz if it’s around! Big clouds full of taste and a very strong buzz in my head are all well indicators for my pick.
While the quartz nail works like magic, the ceramic nail has a hard time to heat up, but when it’s hot (after one heating cycle without dabbing) it delivers taste full of flavor and pretty big clouds.
To use those two nails (one at a time, yes?) press the power button 5 times to start heating it up. The Boost will show white light and change to blue after 40 seconds indicating it is ready to use. The nail will continue heating for 20 more seconds before shutting down.
- Temperature reaches 520 F after 40 seconds
- Temperature reaches 600 F after 60 seconds
*Dr. Dabber recommends using the ceramic nail with low temp setting but I got best results using it with high temp setting.
The Boost e-Rig is powered by 2500 mAh, 35 amp battery (Bestfire branded), giving it enough power for 40-50 hits per full charge. Also, the battery is a replaceable, making the Boost even more portable friendly.
When both white light and blue light flash 8 times its time for a recharge! A full charge will take about 3 hours.
Unfortunately, this is not a unique design and I have seen this design by other brands. But this doesn’t mean it looks bad, it actually looks great, fitting nicely in hand because of its small size, and keeping stable on a table (Ha!) because of the magnetic weight.
With a black-rough steel look, the Boost stands 9 inches tall and weighs 1.00 lbs. The spill-resistant glass percolator mouthpiece is 4.5 inches, providing a feeling you might be familiar with from other desktop rigs.
Vapor Quality & Taste
With ceramic heating element and a glass water attachment, the vapor is very smooth throughout the session.
As stated before, my preferred choice is the quartz nail. It provides me the best milky clouds without a problem at all, it’s also the most efficient nail.
The only thing you will need to do, is to warm up the Boost one heating cycle before you actually start dabbing (applies to all nails), this promises you will get a perfect first hit.

Makes Me Happy
Portable and working (!) e-nail replicating the dabbing experience. That’s all I needed!
More happy stuff:
- 3 Nails in the kit: titanium, ceramic and quartz. Having a choice always makes me happy J
- The spill-resistant glass percolator mouthpiece – because it’s great for portability.
- Operating the Boost does not require a torch or an electrical cord like traditional oil rigs – again, great for portability.
Makes Me Sad
- The spill-resistant glass percolator mouthpiece – because of the amateur glass-work. I could see some air bubbles inside the glass indicating it is not of a high class. With that said, I didn’t have any problems with it.
- The tooltip should be made out of titanium or other metal but not coated, it just melts in the heat when touching the nail.
- The ceramic nail is getting a hard time to heat up, although using the highest heat temp and waiting for one heating cycle, I could feel the lack of clouds compared to a traditional oil rig. I urge you to use the quartz nail. It’s probably the best!
It’s a Wrap
Dr. Dabber Boost e-Rig sells at $199.95. For this price, you will get a fully functioning mini portable oil rig. Much better dabbing experience than any other vape pen and much more portable than a traditional oil rig. If dabbing is your thing, whether at home or on-the-go, the Boost is for you! Try thinking of it like a tablet, it’s not a desktop computer and not a laptop. It’s something else.
If you want to buy the Boost e-Rig do that only at authorized dealerships, this promises you will get an original unit (no fakes) and a valid one year ‘no questions asked’ warranty on all electrical components. I recommend the original Dr. Dabber store, it is the official Dr. Dabber store with excellent customer service and free shipping.
