What are eNails?
Quite simply, eNail stands for “electronic nail”. eNails have gone through many stages of evolution, but most have kept the moniker “nail”, as the original form looked very similar to a carpenter’s nail.
A good analogy that we like to use for our Entropy eNails is the camper stove versus electric stove comparison.
Imagine using a camper stove in your home kitchen. First of all, you’d have to buy the butane or propane, secondly, you’d have to fill up the empty tank or attach a new tank, and thirdly, you would have to light it with an exposed flame. You don’t know the temperature of that flame unless you have a laser thermometer and you can’t remember which setting you had it at last time you used it and enjoyed it. And don’t forget, all of this is happening inside of your home!
Now compare that with your kitchen stove. The stove is electric. It is plugged into the wall. There is no butane or propane involved, nor is there an open flame. You can set the temperature and you are able to remember which settings you like the best. There is no need to fill and refill tanks of gas, nor is there the safety issue of having an exposed flame inside of your home.
This is essentially the difference between using a butane or propane torch to heat up your nail, versus using an eNail. The eNail allows for constant temperature while a torched nail begins to cool down the second the torch is removed and even more drastically so once the user begins to inhale cold air through it and into the bong or rig. While the eNail will also drop in temperature as the user takes his or her dab, it usually only lowers a few degrees, before quickly climbing back up to the set temperature. Compared to the 200 degrees drop the torched nail experiences as it begins to cool completely, the eNail’s temperature loses are negligible.
Other than being able to choose your desired temperature and keep it there indefinitely, the eNail also allows for much more frequency to your dabs.
If you are with a few friends and you all want to take a dab, but you are using a torch, you will be inhibited by the 45 seconds it takes to heat up the nail, each time someone wants to take a dab. By contrast, the eNail allows for successive dabs without the need to wait for it to be brought back to temperature. Three different people could hit dabs at three different temperatures in less time than it takes two people to dab at the same temperature with a torch.
Entropy eNails can switch between temperature differences of more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit in less than 15 seconds. It takes just under a minute for our Entropy eNail to heat up from 0 to 710 degrees Fahrenheit. Essentially, the longest you would ever have to wait for a dab is less than a minute. If your eNail is already turned on, you are able to dab instantly, whenever you want.
Save the Butane, Forget the Torch
Just like the camper stove versus the kitchen stove analogy, only one method of dabbing requires the filling and refilling of Butane or Propane in order to heat up your nail. Not only does this cost you time, it also costs you money as having to keep buying butane adds up. You also have to have access to stores that sell butane. And what if you are at home late at night and your torch runs out of butane? Unless you are close to a 24/7 store that stocks butane, you will be out of luck in terms of dabbing for the night.
With an Entropy eNail, this is not a scenario that you will ever have to deal with, as long as you have access to an electrical outlet. Plug your eNail into the wall and get dabbing. It’s a simple as that. Want to dab outside? Run an extension cord to your patio and enjoy your cannabis concentrates under the sun. Want to dab at a friend’s? No problem, our Entropy eNail is nearly half the size of a standard tissue box and weighs less than 2.5 lbs. It is easily transportable and rugged enough to survive in your airplane luggage (We know from personal experience).
