Happy to start this thread for our wax pens, currently called "VB Eleven Pen"
The picture above is our friend Sunkat. You may see it looks like a standard dab pen, but the materials and methods are how we stand apart. Vaporbrothers won High Times "Best Standard Pen" a few years ago, followed up by a heavy hitter designation last year.
We came from a history of building plug-in vapor boxes which we originated in 1999. Everyone wanted us to make a portable (for flower). But with our self imposed limitations on materials that break down or smell like plastic, we never were able to jump into the high tech vaporizer world. Along came new higher quality dabs in 2007ish, and everything changed.
It's extraordinarily easier to evaporate oils than it is to vaporize herb. While herb requires heated air convection to taste ok, oils can simply be in contact with a hot surface and vaporize just fine. The only problem being the ultra-cheap construction of e-cig type devices, terrible materials, worry of what's off-gassing into your lungs.
Dab pens were originated by (depends on who you ask- Uptech or Vape-Pen Inc). Originally invented in China, tobacco e-cigarettes were repurposed for oil in California around 2007. We collaborated with the scientist inventor behind Vape-Pen to make "Vaporbrothers Dabbler by Vape-Pen" and eventually came out with an improved but more affordable version called VB Eleven Pen.
VB Eleven Pen looks like a standard dab pen but is built completely different. We custom sourced the wire used in the heater (an alloy of Ti & Ni to avoid corrosion problems of pure Ti), chose better lithium batteries, and replaced the traditional glass/fiber wick with textured hollow ceramic. A charging port is on the bottom to avoid you having to carry a separate charger. The pen is first made overseas at a factory we personally selected, but goes through rigorous heating and charging processes here in the US. To date we don't know another vape pen which comes pre-charged 100%. Not only does this mean you won't ruin your battery by using it too soon, but we ensure you won't get a dud.
VB Eleven Pens are backed by our warranty- currently at 90 days, with an easy $14 battery trade-in deal, regardless of time or what happened to the battery. Our warranties require no hoops to jump, like "RMA numbers" or registration. More info
