Wax vaporizers are usually called wax pens or wax vaporizer pens. They may also be a more significant vaporizer that has a wax adaptor or wax setting. There are also many E-rigs, that come in all shapes and sizes and are basically electronic versions of a traditional banger. However, in most cases wax vaporizers a smaller pen style vaporizers.
Wax vaporizers use either a conduction or convection heating system. In most cases conduction heating is used and the wax is heated with a heating element (coil) that is in direct contact with a quartz chamber (or quartz rod) or the heating element is touching a ceramic bowl (or chamber). The heat from the quartz (or ceramic) is in direct contact with the wax causing it to melt into a liquid that then converts to a vapour which can be inhaled.
