I’ve been pushing the Dr Dabber Switch to its limits hard these last few days. In this video, I drop a whole gram of shatter into the quartz cup in hopes of meeting the space Jesus.
We certainly had an adventure! The giant dab was probably about half a gram too big for the Switch’s tiny Induction Cups – but it still sent us down a rabbit hole of story-time (in Part 2).
For the 1 gram dab, I had the Switch in Crystal Mode. This mode is specially tuned for the Quartz Insert. The insert takes longer to heat and crystal mode does not have the self-cleaning cycle. We used the highest temp setting, which is way too hot for a normal dab.
I’ve been happy with the Switch as a portable dab rig. It’s easy to use, just a bit big. However, the 75-100 hits per charge should make up for the size…
It’s pricey at $399, but there is NOTHING on the market like this so it’s kind of hard to compare.
The Puffco Peak is $379 – it hits smoother and is more portable, but not as powerful or shareable. The Switch can serve a bigger crowd.
I ended up reheating the Switch a few times to get through this 1 gram dab. By the time all the shatter melted, the quartz had cooled down and vapor production plummetted. The first few draws from this giant dab were terpy and gritty in my throat, but relatively light on the vapor production.
By the 3rd or 4th draw the quartz insert had regained some heat and it was producing a more dab-rig comparable hit.
Right after I started talking shit about other giant dab video creators and promised to finish my dab no matter what, the dab started tasting like a factory and I gave up.
I did follow through and dabbed all of the reclaim in an instagram live session the next morning!!
The full review of the Switch is coming up soon, right now I’m still testing it and getting some feedback from others regarding the dry herb performance.
