eNail Heating Coil
Remember the domeless nails in the ongoing evolution of dabbing? Well, they evolved one more step and became fully compatible with eNails. Now, there is a slot to slide your eNail coil securely around the domeless nail, and with the push of the power button, you have a hot nail, set to your desired temperature, in less than a minute.
The Coil is NiChrome, which is a combination of Nickel and Chromium. It is resistance heat, meaning that the NiChrome is a resistor and not a conductor of electricity. When the power reaches the coil, the resistance creates a loss of energy, which forms as heat on the coil. This is the second law of thermodynamics, better known as entropy, in action.
One of the more recent evolutions of the nail has been the introduction of the quartz banger; a bucket style nail, which provides an even larger dish than typical domeless nails. Just like its previous incarnations, the quartz banger is used in conjunction with a butane or propane torch, as well as a carb-cap. The banger design veers drastically from the bulky, bolt-like style of the domeless nails and more resembles a basketball net than a carpenter’s nail. Users have tended to adopt this style more and more because of the large dish and it’s ability to contain the concentrate until it has been fully vaporized.
While titanium and ceramic bangers exist, they are rarely used when compared to the quartz version. Many people enjoy the neutral flavour of quartz over the somewhat metallic taste of titanium, while ceramic has the rare tendency to crack under high temperatures. The quartz also allows for transparency, allowing the consumer to visibly see how much is left of his or her dab.
