1. E-Nail Controller Box and Power Cord


Enail Controller Boxes come in different sizes, with various features and temperature accuracy levels. For a straightforward and beginner-friendly option, consider a Micro controller.

Alternatively, you can opt for LCD E-nail Controllers. Which often feature more luxury components like a touch screen interface or enail coil temperature readings.

While Mini and Analog controllers are available, they are not as popular as they once were.

2. Enail Coil - Enail Heater Coil


The Enail Heater Coil will have a plug on one end with long wires covered by a kevlar sheath and a metal circular head. This is the heating element within your electric nail kit. As you set the temperature on your controller, the controller sends a message to the heater to coil to heat to your desired temperature.

E-Nail Coils will vary in size and style depending on which dab nail you are using with it. The enail coil and dab nail must be the same size so that they can properly work together.

3. Quartz E-nail Dab Banger or Titanium Dab Nail


Today, the market offers a diverse range of enail bangers and dab nails. This selection caters to a multitude of different dabbing preferences.

When selecting your electronic nail, consider that quartz delivers superior taste.

While grade 2 titanium enails excel in heat retention for high-temperature dabs.

We recommend terp slurper enail kits for lower temperature dabs.

Meanwhile, nectar collector e-nails offer a unique dabbing experience in their own category.

Dab Nails come in 10mm, 14mm, and 18mm joint sizes for a perfect fit to your enail dab rig.

4. O-Clamps or Cotter Pins

O-clamps or cotter pins are incredibly small but they play a crucial role within your dab kit. This tiny clip connects your heating coil, your quartz banger and enail together for safe precision heating.

5. Dab Rig - Enail Dab Rig


Finally the last part of your enail dab kit is your enail rig, we recommend going with a recycler rig when dabbing. This is because recycler dab rigs use little water while providing the most filtration of your dabs.

Look for something that has a wide base and is a bit taller in size. So that your dab rig does not topple over with the weight of an enail coil, carb cap, and other accessories.
