It’s good to note before we start this comprehensive review that Dr. Dabber is one of the most decorated manufacturers on the market with various award-winning vaporizers from some of the most prestigious award-giving bodies. It’s also important to understand that the brand has always been in the forefront of innovation with products like the Dr. Dabber Switch, that has broken barriers and transcended boundaries in the vaporizer industry by introducing the power of induction technology. On that same note, the Dr. Dabber Stella was gifted some unique features which is a mixture of both old and new. These features make the Dr. Dabber Stella the actual future of dabbing all with Dr. Dabber DNA.

Good, plug the Dr. Dabber Stella on the wall outlet and wield unlimited power your outlet has to offer. No outlets available huh, how about a desktop computer?

The Dr. Dabber Stella has a few other features that set it apart from the competition and sets it in place as your new next-gen dab pen. If you’ve been eyeing the Dr. Dabber Stella as your second when you’re away from your eRig or desktop vaporizer and even if you’d be using it as a daily driver, this review is for you. We’ll tackle all the relevant issues that comes with the Dr. Dabber Stella. Both the pros and cons, the real-life advantages and the real-world disadvantages. So, let’s check it out.
The Dr. Dabber Stella was made to be the successor to the Dr. Dabber Aurora. For the uninitiated, the Dr. Dabber Aurora is one of Dr. D’s most decorated dab pen and the Dr. Dabber Stella had some big shoes to fill. Nevertheless, to have come from the same line of vaporizers and share the same DNA as the Aurora puts the Dr. Dabber Stella at the top of the dad pen tier list. A premium vaporizer, the Dr. Dabber Stella offers some likewise premium features of its own. One of these features is the signature vortex airflow system that gives the Dr. Dabber Stella a unique way to dissipate the heat as well as to help with vapor filtration.
Compared to using a dab pen that shoots the vapor straight from the heating element to the mouthpiece, using one that allows the vapor to climb up a spiral vent gives it a longer path to travel. In vaporizers, a longer vapor path means that the vapors arrive past the mouthpiece cooler and carrying less irritants. This makes the vapors produced by the Dr. Dabber Stella easier to inhale – the kind that does not burn your throat. Premium vaporizers are known not for their soft vapor production but for delivering vapors that are refined. You’ll get that level of vapor production when you use the Dr. Dabber Stella.
There’s one downside to it though, cleaning could be tough for a mouthpiece that promotes the spirally movement of air. Just make sure you’re ready for some serious sprucing when you commit to buying the Dr. Dabber Stella.
Remember when we’ve said that Dr. Dabber is known to have a knack for innovation? Like the aforementioned Dr. Dabber Switch, the Dr. Dabber Stella is another breakthrough as it uses not just any ceramic wax chamber (or bowl if that’s what you’d like to call it). Instead, the Dr. Dabber Stella Vaporizer uses alumina ceramic that offers unique properties making it another one for the books. Alumina ceramic is an advanced ceramic material that promotes excellent electrical insulation and is extremely resistant to wear and corrosion. This means that by using alumina ceramic, the Dr. Dabber Stella offers a lasting heating element that can help vaporize your select wax concentrates without having to reach the point of combustion. Moreover, the use of alumina ceramic furthers the Dr. Dabber Stella’s ability to help preserve and maintain the properties your select extracts have to offer. That said, you can maximize both potency and flavor when consuming your wax concentrates with this brand-spanking-new dab pen from Dr. D. The Dr. Dabber Stella’s alumina ceramic heating element is built-in on the chamber. The chamber then boasts a sealed alumina heating element to further the properties this variety of ceramic has to offer.
The only downside we can see is the price of replacement atomizers. Although the Dr. Dabber Stella’s heating elements were designed to last, they will have to reach end of life. This means that it will eventually succumb to wear and tear and will have to be replaced. Because the Dr. Dabber Stella is one of the only few dab pens on the market that uses alumina ceramic, the cost of replacing one might not be as affordable as those that use a generally available commodity.
The Dr. Dabber Stella also offers a unique wax chamber that Dr. D likes to call a floating vaporization chamber. This works by raising the vape chamber to reduce the influence it has to the temperature of the Dr. Dabber Stella’s external housing. What this means is that even if you keep on using the Dr. Dabber Stella, it will not be as blisteringly hot that it will be too uncomfortable to use. You can still grab a hold of the device even when you’re ran a few cycles on it. This is the common pitfall of other vaporizers that get too uncomfortable to use after several sessions. Either the mouthpiece gets too hot or the battery is. Either way, you’d have to put it down and pause as you can’t continue dabbing on a vaporizer that’s too hot. Furthermore, because the heat of the heating element spreads to the battery, this can affect the performance as well as the longevity of the unit.
See, when the internal circuitry of the device gets exposed to heat, the wires, the metal parts, and even the small plastic components are subject to stress and weakens overtime. However, because the Dr. Dabber Stella perfectly places the chamber at a raised position, the heat from the actual chamber does not spread as vehemently as you would with a cheap dab pen. This is just one of the benefits of using the Dr. Dabber Stella and if you decide to commit to using this dab pen, there’s pretty much more in store for you.
But while we’re still in the topic of batteries…
The Dr. Dabber Stella offers a smart dab pen battery that does not only pack relatively serious power but also offers unique features to make sure that it lasts as good as it performs. The Dr. Dabber Stella offers a 600mah battery that not only works with USB type-c technology but also boasts safety features like overcharge, over discharge, overcurrent, and overvoltage protections. Basically, the battery protects itself from any form of damage it may incur during charging. Any fluctuation of power that might have gone past the USB type-c charging cable can be prevented by the battery’s ability to hold off these issues. That said, you can expect the battery to last especially when compared to other batteries that do not that this level of protection.
The Dr. Dabber Stella is one solid investment not only for beginners and novices but also for advanced consumers and seasoned veterans that are looking for a reliable and dependable dab pen. You can be sure that with every purchase of Dr. Dabber Stella, you’re getting the best dab pen today’s industry has to offer.
