Puffco Peak Portable Dab Rig Review

This is the Puffco Peak, a new portable dab rig for concentrates. The video above is me using it for the first time and my initial impressions.

The whole e-rig thing is a relatively new concept but the underlying technology mostly stems from vape pens.

Puffco Peak

It’s easy to get vapor from this thing which will make it have mass appeal, and it’s a pretty tiny rig, smaller than I thought it would be.

Peak

The look and feel is really nice just like the other Puffco products, it’s light and easy to pass around too.

It has a removable ceramic cup or bucket which is where you load your wax, and you don’t necessarily “dab” from this thing, it says to load your concentrate in the cup before you even turn it on.

Ceramic Cup

It also comes with a pretty cool carb cap made of glass, it fits great and is fun to use, but could be easy to lose and without it the rig does not function normally.

Glass Carb Cap

You get 4 heat levels to choose from and I’d say they’re set at good temps, I’ve been mostly using the middle 2 settings so far.

You’re supposed to put water in the glass part and to my surprise it did a very good job of keeping the water from bubbling up and touching my lips. It did happen once during my initial test (see video) but that was it.

Ceramic Heater

The ceramic cups are easy to remove and replace, they actually just sit in place on top of the heating plate. The cup is only heated from the bottom so don’t put your wax on the walls like some do when dabbing.

Peak Parts

I have mixed feelings about it… I still need to use it a little more before making up my mind but I’m not sure I feel that it’s worth the $380 price tag.

My Puffco Plus review page has a ton of comments on it, that’s their latest wax pen, and people’s feelings are pretty mixed with that one too.

I’ve heard a lot of people are having trouble with defects too, anybody have issues with theirs?

Also check out the Puffco Peak review thread on the forum, there’s some great info about it and reviews from other users.

What do you guys think about this one?

  • The Puffco plus sucks! I have gone through 2 of them and both hit well at first and then started to fail. It doesnt work well and the hits taste very bad. Its also difficult to keep clean. Do not waste your money.

  • GREAT PRODUCT BUT THE ATOMIZERS NEED UPDATING
    THEY LAST WEEKS AT BEST
    WHEN THEY WORK THEY WORK WELL
    BUT 40 TO 50 A PIECE IS RIDICULOUS {40 PLUS TAX AND SHIPPING}

    THE HONEY BADGER HAS BLOWN MY PEAK OUT THE WATER

    I HAD TO BUY ONE SINCE MY PEAK IS 3 MONTHS OLD AND HAS BEEN IN THE REPAIR SHOP AT PUFF CO FOR ALMOST 1 MONTH AND A HALF OF THAT TIME

    ATOMIZERS KEEP FAILING

    GET THE ATOMIZERS TO LAST LONGER AND YOU HAVE A WINNER OR LOWER THE COST

    40 SHOULD BE FOR A PACK OF 3 OR 5

    LOTS OF ISSUES

  • Got my peak a few day ago. After 2 heat ups the thing started blinking. I took apart the atomizer and the heating element was cracked in half AFTER 2 USES!! What a piece of JUNK. Now I have to deal with their non-existent customer service. They dont even have a phone number for CS. When you call it it goes to a VM telling u to email them. WHAT A JOKE! I’m reported them! This is just flat our WRONG!!

  • I’ve had mine for a week now. Been dabbing for 10 years plus. The Peak is an overpriced paperweight with cheaply made parts from China. There are other options on the market with better performance for 1/4 the price. Save your money and go elsewhere. I just put mine on eBay.

  • Have to second the comments about the atomizer being total crap that feels like it’s designed to fail. No wonder they sell replacements on their website for well above what the actual piece is worth. In reality, this is a dab rig and should be designed to handle more steady current use than the two small wires attached to the ceramic plate can handle. If you look at the heating elements on actual e-nails, you will notice a heavy duty heating wire meant to handle repeat heating and cooling as well as removing the nail.

    A suggestion to puffco, make this 400$ rig work otherwise there will be competition capable of making something more robust. I am not going to be on an atomizer subscription plan where your company eats 50$ every time it breaks.

  • Dude this thing is awesome when it works.. But really only an employee of Puffco would be completely happy with the Peak because they have access to atomizers and troubleshooting help. If you have a problem with the thing, you have to e-mail and wait days for a response. I just got a new atomizer in the mail today and went to use it and the damn thing did the rainbow light cycle meaning bad connection. Uuuhhh idk why bc it’s a new fkn atomizer and the thing is charged. I just want a damn refund at this point. What a waste.

  • Me and my buddy both purchased peaks. Mine never worked came with broken atomizer. My buddy’s lasted a week. We’re both experienced dabbers and followed all directions. The atomizer is too jank ass wires to a ceramic plate . After you take two dabs and try to pull out the bucket the wires come out of the atty and you can’t fix it. Awesome when it works . Spent more time trying to use it than using it though
