FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT E-NAIL SETUPS:
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.
