Most small bubblers are not really designed for concentrates but again, it is possible to either top a small bowl of flower with a dab or stick a dab to the side of the bowl and heat it the same way as mentioned above. Also, some larger, bubbler pipes use a glass-on-glass bong bowl, so if that is the case, you can just replace the bong bowl with a dab nail and use the bubbler just like a dab rig.
Nectar collectors have all the benefits of a dab rig but are handheld, making them easier to use and much more portable. There is not even a need to have a dabber tool as you can simply dip the nectar collector tip into a wax jar to start dabbing. To use the nectar collector, just heat the metal or ceramic tip with a blowtorch style lighter (unless it is an E-nectar collector), and when the tip is hot to your liking, carefully dip it into the wax and inhale. Nectar collectors are perfect for those just getting into dabbing or want more of a traditional dab experience rather than a wax vape, but also want something that is easier to use and handle than an oil rig.
One of the added benefits of wax pens versus dab rigs is the obvious ease of use, especially when you are out and about. They slip easily into a small pocket or purse and many fit in the palm of your hand. Many dab pens also include an attached dab jar so you can carry extra wax inside the pen.
No dab rig, no problem. Dabbing has gained a lot of popularity in recent years, but if you are just jumping into the world of dabbing, you may not want to make a large investment into a dab rig.
There are many other ways to dab wax and shatter extracts. Nectar collectors, water pipes, and bubblers can all be used for dabbing. There is also the alternative of using vape style devices to dab. This includes wax (or dab) pens, box mod vapes, dab rig vaporizers, and dipstick vapes. We have organized this article by device so if you just want to find out how to dab using a specific type of device, you can skip to that section.
The SteamCloud Box Mod Vape is a popular model due to its size and power. It will fit in the palm of the smallest hand, yet it packs the power to deliver the most powerful dabs from a vaporizer device.
Although dabbing wax concentrates with an Oil Rig is ideal, there are many great ways to Dab without a Rig. From Nectar Collectors to Wax Pens and Dipsticks, this post covers all of the ways to dab.

Some good examples of nectar collectors are the mini silicone nectar collectors as well as the standard glass nectar collector with a titanium tip. The glass is perfect for glass enthusiasts who love the feel and purity that glass provides. The silicone nectar collector is made from food grade, high heat resistant silicone so it provides just as clean of flavor as glass and has the added benefit of being much more durable.
