12 Best Quartz Bangers in 2019 - Every Budget Covered!

In this article, we list the best quartz bangers in 2019, covering every budget! With so many options to choose from it can be hard to know if you're picking the quartz banger that's best for you and your toking routine. We're going to start with some basic know-how that will help ensure you know what you're getting into and how to care for your quartz banger once you've got it. Keep scrolling for the list of our favourite quartz bangers out there today!

 

What’s the difference between a quartz banger and a thermal quartz banger?

A popular type of quartz nail, a quartz banger has a deep dish and a domeless design to allow for maximum amount of concentrate to be vaporized. It takes less time to heat and ensures that heat is directed away from the delicate dab rig.


Thermal quartz bangers, on the other hand, are much more recent and are similar to standard glass bangers. However, they have an additional cylinder in the middle allowing you to dab even more! It has more mass and therefore takes longer to heat, though the heat is also retained for longer.


A glass banger costs more than your average titanium dab nail but is bound to give you a better flavour and generally heats up faster! Glass is also not as durable as titanium, although one can still expect it to last for decades if looked after properly!


How long to heat quartz banger?

A commonly asked question, the time needed to heat a quartz banger varies depending on its thickness and age. At the end of the day, the temperature at which you dab is totally up to you! We recommend to start dabbing at lower temperatures ( 350-450°F; 175-230°C) and to slowly increase the temperature to your desired level. A high-temperature dab is considered to be between 500-600°F; 260-315°C.

 

How to dab with a quartz banger?

Generally, a low-temperature dab takes around 20 to 30 seconds of heating by a torch to achieve; allow around 1 minute for the banger to cool. Trial and error a few times with a timer ( or an E-nail if you have one), and it won’t take you long to find the perfect temperature!


While cooling, apply some concentrate to the quartz bucket (go easy to start with, as they can pack a powerful punch). The concentrate will vaporize on contact with the hot surface, and that's when you'll inhale away!  


Here’s a good video to start with for any beginners out there!

How to clean quartz banger?

As with any glass product, special care should be taken when cleaning; proper cleaning will ensure it lasts for a lifetime.


The most important point is to never use bleach or standard cleaning products, for accidentally dabbing trace amounts of this can potentially be very harmful. Instead, you should use an alcohol-based cleaner or distilled water. Soft material such as a cloth or cotton wool (Q-tips work great) is recommended to avoid scratching the delicate glass surface.
We recommend cleaning the banger after every dab session in order to prevent it from giving a dull yellow glow over time.

How to season a quartz banger?

Seasoning means putting a thin layer of wax or oil over the quartz glass, which prevents the dabbing of any potential unwanted material or dirt in order to give the most perfect taste!


To do this, the dab nail should first be heated while placed in the bong or dab rig. Once hot, add some wax or oil using a dabber tool, ensuring all surfaces are well covered. Allow the oil to burn. Note: you should not inhale during this process.

Here’s a good tutorial if you’re still unclear!
