Controller unit and coil both use mains electricity, which has the potential to do lethal damage to humans and other animals! If you attempt to open the case for any reason you must do so at your own risk. Unplug the unit after use to be completely sure it won’t be switched back on by accident or on purpose by a child, pet, or other beings. Secure all items to make sure hot coils or nails will not fall over and burn your items or yourself unintentionally!

More obvious don’ts:

Don’t spill any liquids on or around the controller, heater coil, nail, or power cord! Keep all included items free from all moisture and excessive humidity over 85% RH (relative humidity).

Soft power cords should never be excessively or repeatedly bent or compressed. This may damage the insulation in the cord which could cause the cord to heat up and cause a fire.

Working ambient (environmental) temperature of the controller unit is 32C-122F and up to 85%RH (relative humidity)

Do not attempt to replace coils from another brand until finding out if the wiring is compatible. The configuration for XLR pins 1-5 on the heat coil are: Pin1=AC power, Pin2=AC power, Pin3=TC+, Pin4=TC-, Pin5=Ground


Plug the power cord into the wall, and then into the e-nail controller (to avoid pulling the controller while plugging in). Make sure the cord is seated all the way into the unit to ensure power connection. If the cord is not plugged in all the way, it may tilt to one side, disconnecting the power from the wall and shutting the off.

It is a common error, but easy to fix. Hold the hard plastic end of the cord when and press firmly to seat into the power receptacle.

The heater coil will only plug in one way. There is a notch on the “top” of the heater coil plug which you can align with the button labeled “push” on the cord receptacle. You will feel and hear a small snap that lets you know the cord is fully

seated in the receptacle.

Switch the power button in back to the on position, and plug the heater coil in (or vice versa). To change the temperature, press the up or down arrows until desired number is reached. The screen will blink a few times then set itself. You will know when the temperature is set when it stops blinking.

Initial cleaning: For Ti nails, it is best to heat the nail up to around 100-300F and swab some 99% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) on the vaporization surface using a q-tip. This will remove any oil residues from the manufacturing process. There is also a process called seasoning the nail, which may also reduce some of these undesirable residues.

Ongoing cleaning: Set the controller to 1060F and wait about 5 minutes to turn back down to desired set temps, which are normally about 500F-900F depending on nail type and preference. With a standard Ti or quartz nail 710F is a pretty standard temperature, however with more massive Ti nails you may want to use more heat to prevent un-used, pooling product on the nail. For smooth, pronounced flavors (but a little more waste) a lower temperature with a carb cap is recommended. Of course, there is a sweet spot with great flavor and little waste, which is about 670F (on standard quartz dome-less 20mm).


If the controller ever draws too much amperage from the wall there is fuse in place for safety purposes. The LED display on the controller will not light up, nor will power be supplied to any other component in the unit. To get the unit working again, you will need to first correct the over-current (amperage) issue that caused the fuse to blow, then replace the fuse with a 120V AC 3A quick-blowing fuse. The fuse port (located in the center of the power receptacle in back) can be popped out with a flat tool, and the fuse can easily be replaced from there.


If using for dabbing medical concentrates such as cannabis, most prefer to use temperatures anywhere from 500F-950F. It all depends on your nail, if you are using a carb cap or not, and your preference on taste and overall experience. If using for aromatherapy, essential oils vaporize at a much lower temperature, and may range around 100F-300F. Tobacco vape juice is about the same as cannabis concentrate as far as range but slightly lower.

Bottom line is there is a wide range of applications and preferences. Start with a solid average and experiment for yourself!


Tilting the coil inward towards the center of the rig will help balance out smaller rigs or rigs that don’t have a heavy base. This greatly reduces the common tipping problem.

Besides getting moisture on the coil, the number one way to break one is to bend the wire too much too many times. The second is frequent extreme changes in temperature (hence the no moisture rule). Be aware that setting to 1080F to clean from a cold start will stress the coil more than if you start the set temperature to 700F and then bring it up about a minute later.

Carb caps help tremendously with vaporizing the same amount at a lower temperature.


What dab accessories do I need to make a full e-nail setup?

First off, the power cable plugs into the e-nail controller which your heating coil plugs into. The heating coil rests on (or in between in the case of a flat heating coil) the dab nail, which then sits inside of a mini tube (or other dab rig) or nectar collector. The only other thing left is a dabber, and possibly a capper. The only optional part in the setup IMO is the capper (but very hardly optional as I can’t imagine the waste without one). If you are going with a banger setup, an adjustable banger band mount is very helpful to help keep your banger held to your heating coil.

OK I have un-boxed my e-nail controller and accessories, now what?

After plugging the power cable into the e-nail controller box, you will then plug the heaying coil’s cable into the e-nail controller. Situate the coil onto you nail (this will look differently depending on which nail you have). After inserting the nail/coil into your mini tube, banger hanger, vortex recycler, or other dab rig, you are ready to flip on the power switch and “start ignition”. No need to count-down: just watch the temperature on the digital screen rise up to the “set temperature”, which is adjusted by using the up and down arrows you see on the face of the LED screen. After choosing the temperature using the arrows, just wait. The screen will  then blink a number of times and then switch back to the actual temperature reading (at the heating coil itself).

Will your heating coil work with my controller box?

Heating coil mis-matching is probably the most common issue that I come across with customers. In order to know if your e-nail and heating coil match, the relevant piece of information is the pin configuration, or in other words in what order are the pins wired? The issue is that you can have two heating coils that both have the same 5-pin connector, however the wires are placed in different spots. This means that the wires that are meant to make the coil heat up may be connected to the pins where the coil senses the temperature, completely ruining the coil. There are a few ways to go about finding out how your e-nail heat coil or controller box is wired. Check out this blog post and if you still need help feel free to ask.

Does it matter that I am using a coil with a different wattage than my original?

Yes, and no. It all comes down to the relay inside. Most decent e-nails have a relay that is well over 5A

Is it best to leave your e-nail on all day or just switch it on and off multiple times per day?

Most people would prefer (for good reason) to only have their e-nail on while they are using it. This is because it can be very dangerous to leave a heated device such as these un-attended. Especially if you have pets or children, it’s a must to switch it off when out of the room. That being said, for the heating coil’s sake, it is slightly better to spare it from having to go though more frequent heating and cooling cycles. Also our planet is warming up and it’s probably not best to leave a energy-intensive device like that sitting around if not being used. It only takes a minute or two to heat up from zero.

Why doesn’t the SET button work on my e-nail?

DONT PRESS THE SET BUTTON! Don’t worry. Most new e-nail users are get confused with the function of the SET button. What does the SET button do on your e-nail? You may think it would set the “set temperature” or the target temperature…well not exactly! The SET button does allow you to function the advanced parameters of the e-nail such as PID values and other high-tech tinkering, but 99.99% of e-nail users will want to just avoid this button. The up/down arrows are all you need to adjust the set temperature setting. It’s as simple as that! The screen will blink a few times on the screen before or during the change, just let it happen and don’t press the SET button to “confirm”.

What kind of custom designs can you make?

All sorts of designs from old toys to custom 3D designed e-nails are possible! If it’s an item that you want to make into an e-nail just use the contact and send over any pictures you have. You will be asked to make some measurements to determine if the object has enough space to house the electronics inside. For 3D printed designs, please send over any visual material you have and ideas for the project and you will be given a quote if not further information is needed to determine the length of time for the job.

Do you offer combined shipping on multiple items?

If the option is not available in the cart or the plug-ins aren’t working like that, please just contact and you will receive new quote or a small refund for the difference in combined shipping if available.
