Using the included tweezers, the ceramic nail is placed within the glass top. Just simply scoop enough amount of wax (rice grain size) with the use of the included dab tool, then the “Go” button is pressed to begin the heating the process. The wax is dabbed into the nail and then covered with a carb cap. Now, you can inhale or vape from the mouthpiece. For your dry herb, flip the switch to set to leaf mode.

Dr. Dabber Switch Ultimate Guide
The Dr. Dabber Switch Vaporizer is one of the most ground breaking innovations in the vaping industry. It functions as a portable dab rig but if offers more than what other devices in this platform has to offer. Not only is the Dr. Dabber Switch highly capable of vaporizing wax concentrates but it’s also capable of vaporizing flowers and other raw or dried botanical plant matter. Hence, the Dr. Dabber Switch Vaporizer appears to be complex and a little too complicated to use as a vaporizer that can vaporize both weed and concentrate requires a more advanced type of technology. So, if it’s your first time using a dual-purpose vaporizer, let alone a dual-purpose portable desktop rig like the Dr. Dabber Switch, here are a few tips you can use to make your vaping experience more enjoyable.
1. General Directions for Use.
While the Dr. Dabber Switch Vaporizer boasts of two specialized modes, the way this vaporizer is prepared when using both types of materials are pretty similar. This makes the whole process of setting up more user-friendly and easier to get used to. Once you get the hand of it, you’ll be able to use the Dr. Dabber Switch like a pro in no time.
First, begin by filling the glass bubbler attachment with water. Do not overfill the glass attachment and only fill the glass bubbler with only a few ounces of water, else, this may cause the water to overflow and cause the water to make its way into the battery and into the Dr. Dabber Switch’s internal circuitry where it may cause permanent damage. Make sure you fill the glass bubbler with only the right amount of water.
Next, Load the induction cup with your select material. The white ceramic heating cup is used mainly for oil and other wax concentrates while the black ceramic cup is best for use with loose-leaf materials like ground flowers, nugs, and leaves. Sold separately, induction cups made from quartz and smoother variety of ceramic that increases and enhances your overall vaping experience.
Afterwards, once the induction cup is loaded use the inclusive tweezers that are intended to be utilized in conjunction with the heating cups. You can use the inverted tweezers so your fingers won’t get burned when handling extremely hot objects like the induction cups after a session.
Once the induction cups are set into place using the tweezers, secure the glass top and place the glass loading tool and carb cap accessory atop the induction cups. Proceed to selecting which mode to use depending on the type of material on the induction cup. The switch can be found at the bottom of the device with icons for leaf and oil.
After this step is done, tap the power button just right above the switch. Select the go button to initiate and activate the heating element. After the material is heated, wait till the vapors are produced and begin to vape.
2. Quick Tip When Using Oil Mode.
When using oil mode, the wax concentrates are heated evenly as the induction cups allow for the heat to be distributed uniformly. However, we’ve found that it’s still best to stir the contents of the induction cups in between sessions to make sure that the wax concentrates or thick oils are heated and are vaporized correctly.
Grab the carb cap/loading tool and swirl it around the stir the contents for an even better experience.
3. More Tips When Vaping with Oils and Other Extracts.
The Dr. Dabber Switch was designed to function in optimal performance in both oil mode and leaf mode, this is why both modes have specialized settings that enhance and unlocks the full potential of your select wax concentrates. When using the Dr. Dabber Switch in oil mode, follow these steps and keep these tips in mind.
Put water on the glass bubbler attachment only after removing it from the battery for obvious reasons.
Fill the glass bubbler with only a few ounces or it may overflow and spill all over the battery. Test the glass bubbler before placing it atop the battery. After which, place the glass percolator to the Dr. Dabber Switch securely.
Power the Dr. Dabber Switch on and make sure it’s set in oil mode.
After selecting the correct mode, set the Dr. Dabber Switch to your desired power setting with the help of the (+) and the (-) button so you can key in your preferred power setting. Remember, a single yellow LED light means that the Dr. Dabber Switch oil mode is set for optimum flavor delivery while five yellow LED lights means that it’s set for bigger cloud production.
You can either load the induction cups before placing them on the heating element or after they’re seated on the induction heating element. Either way, they will produce the quality of vapor you’ve dialed in on the Switch battery.
Press the go button to initiate the vaporization process. The LED lights will flash red when heating but will turn green when the Dr. Dabber Switch has reached optimum vaping temperature, this means that you’re ready to vape once you see the green light. If you like to stop the running cycle, simply press the go button again to stop the current cycle.
4. Quick Tips When Using Flower Mode.
When using the Dr. Dabber Switch in leaf mode, it allows the herbs to vaporize through conduction heating which is why it’s also important to mix the herbs in between sessions like vaping wax concentrates. This will allow the heat to be conducted and transferred to the herbs evenly so the materials can be heated without burning.
Also, make sure to ground your herbs before use so that they can cover better surface area and can heat easily.
5. More Tips with Leaf and Other Botanicals.
Operating the leaf mode is pretty similar to the oil mode, just make sure pack the induction cups tight and nearly full for best results.
