Dipstick Dipper Review: Breakdown

Quality

Build Quality

Build Quality

The build quality of the dipper is above average and the Dipper is an upgraded model of the original vaporizer known as the Dip Stick.

The Dipper uses a quartz crystal tip atomizer for the straw method and a dual quartz oven chamber for the vape pen method.

The Battery for the Dipper seems good enough, I could not find the exact specs of what the Battery is but after heavy user throughout a day it still going so it must be a decent one.

For a price of under $150 I think the overall build quality is pretty good.

Vapor Quality

The Dipper packs a pretty good punch and is one of the fastest dabbing pens I’ve tested. This is to say that you don’t have to load the oven and can start dabbing right away from your concentrate container. The hits you get are pretty solid using both methods and the device has 3 temperature settings.

The highest setting can get a little harsh and I found that the lower and medium temperatures gave the best flavor. If you are looking for a faster denser hit the highest does this but again it’s a little on the hot side.

The atomizers made from quartz crystal deliver pretty good flavor. One thing I will mention is that when you are using the straw method it’s best to try and get close to the concentrate without smothering the tip in it.

If you go to aggressive you stand a good chance at clogging the tip and it can take a few seconds to unclog each time which gets frustrating. If you are sharing a session with new people you should mention this to them.

Design


look-and-feel

Look and Feel

The Dipper comes in three color options – you can get gun metal, charcoal black, and newly released rose gold.

All three look really nice in my opinion as they give off a classy modern appearance.

Along the side of the device it spells ‘D!pper’ and the mouthpiece is designed to connect to both ends for its multipurpose functionality.

Discreetness

Discreetness

The Dipper is not really a discrete vaporizer but you can try to make it discreet if you try.

The only real way I see doing this is by using the lowest temperature setting and taking medium length draws while in the oven packing mode.

If you plan on using a wax pen multiple times and know that you will not have the time or dab tool to load it than the Dipper is a good solution for quick hits right out your concentrate jar.

Difficulty

Ease of Use

The Dipper is very easy to use and for some people this type of device will be perhaps the only one they can use. Some medical cannabis patients do not have the mobility to load a small oven and fidget with a dab tool and wax concentrates.

The Dipper allows for a simple solution where you can just dab the heated tip to your material. The DipWhip accessory also allows for an extension for one person to aid in helping another with delivering the medicine.

The Dipper is simple to use you click the button multiple times to turn it on and again to cycle through the 3 temperature options and multiple times as well to turn it off.

Depending on which method you are using in your session you will need to attach the specific atomizer or atomizer tip and position the mouthpiece on the correct end.

Portability

Portability

Wax pens have an advantage with battery life over dry herb vaporizers. Dry herb devices require the oven to be on for a longer period of time which drains the battery faster. The Dipper like other wax pens just needs to be heated while you are taking your draw.

The internal battery in the dipper is a bit about average for wax pens and the average vaper should be able to go a day on a single charge.

The Dipper straw method gives this device a hassle free method to perform a session that does not require any loading. This allows you to stay on the move easier in relation to stopping and loading an oven all the time.

This however is not a big concern to many people and the true portability of a vaporizer comes down to the size and battery life of the unit.

Conclusion

Overall I think the Dipper is a fun device that is well thought out and well built. This type of device will not be for everyone and definitely has its niche. The quartz atomizers help to deliver flavorful hits that I think will be a selling point to anyone who likes traditional dab hits using a rig and torch.

The issues that come with this type of device and the current materials used are that the atomizer tips will need to be replaced from time to time if you use that method often. You can get a package of replacement tips for 14.99 for 2, so you should just plan ahead and when you are down to one left send in an order for more.

If you are going to be vaping concentrates than I would say this is a great little dab pen to purchase. Having said that there are a few other great options such as the Thunder 2.

If you are looking for a unit that will give you a rig like experience for waxes and water filtration for dry herb, we recommend checking out the Focusvape Tourist 2-in-1 vaporizer.
