Time for a review that I almost couldn’t be more excited for! I’ve been going pretty crazy over this new product ever since they first hit the market, and I’m stoked to finally get my hands on one. I’m talking about the new portable Erigs that have become all the rage, or at least I think they’re gonna if they haven’t yet… I already did a brief overview of the first Erig of this nature that I had ever heard of called the Boost by Dr. Dabber, but since then quite a few companies have stepped up to the plate to try and improve on that design. One of the companies that seems to be doing the best job is Dabado. Dabado was founded in Denver by a couple of brothers that are dedicated to helping people vaporize concentrates more safely. They released their portable Erig called the Bolt fairly recently and I’ve had it for almost a week now. Let me tell you why I love it so much already.
Well the first thing that I love about these machines is that they really do have it all. A lot of people are intimidated to get into the dab game because of how much of an investment it seems to be. That might be true, between the rig, the dabber, the nail, the torch, the butane, the silicone containers, and the carb cap you’re looking at quite the shopping list. This device literally includes everything you’d need including most of those items and even comes with a nice carrying case to store them. The Bolt couldn’t be easier to use, because you just press the button three times and a white light comes on. In fifteen seconds that light turns green and you’re ready to dab. Throw your carb cap on and you’re in business. The temperature setting is simple because basically it gets about 100 degrees hotter each time you heat it up consecutively. This allows for some milky low temp dabs, or some scorchers. One of the great features of this Erig is that it has no need for a scary blowtorch that freaks so many people out. It also doesn’t need any chords when it isn’t charging, so there isn’t any need to worry about someone tripping and breaking your rig.
For that matter there really isn’t that much glass on this thing anyway. The rig section is pretty small, but has a good amount of percolation. It comes with a sturdy magnetic stand, but I knocked it over pretty hard and it didn’t break. The Bolt is lightning fast offering dabs ready in a mere 15 seconds. The Bolt also comes with an awesome magnetic carb cap that is strong enough that you don’t really have to worry about them coming apart. The Bolt might not be quite as good as a real rig, but it is a huge step closer from the pen game. It’s honestly so cool and convenient that I find myself using it sometimes even at my apartment when I have full access to any of my rigs. The carrying case seals the deal on making this thing incredibly portable. One advantage I can say for sure that the Bolt offers compared to its competition is a great price. The Bolt can be purchased for just $160 bucks, which is super cheap compared to investing in a rig. I am just thrilled to be able to finally have true dabs on the go without feeling like some kind of crackhead carrying around my big blue propane tank. That alone was worth my investment.
