The bottom line

My thoughts after using the DabGo are overwhelmingly positive. Its portability, ease of use, ease of filling, easy charging and absolutely zero cleaning and maintenance make it hard not to enjoy using it; I mean, what’s not to love?

Well, the main drawback to the DabGo is that it’s a one-time use product. Once it’s filled and the chamber cover is snapped on, there’s no refilling it. That being said, how long it lasts will depend on how often you use it but its best use will be for trips out of the house. It won’t replace your main dab rig at home, but it does a fine job of filling the need for a few puffs when you go out for a night on the town.

With the DabGo you get the world’s first disposable dab device that is portable enough to comfortably fit in your pocket, while also being powerful enough to deliver a great experience for on-the-go sessions. 

So who’s it for? The DabGo is a great option for someone who doesn’t want to take their large dab rig out of the house and who just wants something small and effective. It’s also an excellent option for someone who has little to no experience when it comes to dabbing. 

To reiterate, you can’t buy this device with the expectation that it will replace a full sized rig. But if you want a great on-the-go dabbing device that requires no maintenance and is as simple as using it and then tossing it away when it’s done, this is your guy!

Artix offers a wide range of cannabis products. These include multiple options of disposable vapes such as the Lilmon, Sip and Cubox, a refillable pod device called the Fitty, and even a 510 cartridge, the Drillor.

Today I’m reviewing their first ever disposable dab pen, the Artrix DabGo. Inside each DabGo is a 1.5Ω coil and a 230mAh battery that can be recharged using the Type C port on the side of the device.

As the DabGo is a disposable device, it’s a single use device made for you to use it and then toss it once you have used all of your material. This gives you an on-the-go device that requires absolutely no maintenance or cleaning.

I have been using the DabGo daily to get an experienced perspective on the device and all it has to offer. Keep reading to find out if I would suggest getting your hands on one of these.

Design & Build Quality

  • Artrix DabGo - 2

The DabGo is the first disposable dab device from Artrix and it has a very unique look to it. This is not your average cannabis vape. The best way to compare how the DabGo looks is to an old school smoking pipe, but with a sleek modern look.

The DabGo is very portable, making for a perfect on-the-go dab solution. It measures at 84.6mm long, 32.2 mm wide and 21mm high. At just 27g, the DabGo is so light that you can easily forget that you are even carrying it. However, Artrix does suggest keeping the device in an upright position so that the material inside is making contact with the ceramic bowl at all times.

The body of the Artrix DabGo is made of aluminum and feels solid and sturdy. Unlike some other concentrate devices that are super slim, causing them to be prone to bending or flexing, there is no need to worry about that with the DabGo. The shape and design, along with the materials used make the DabGo, make for an all-around solid device.

One con that I noticed while using the DabGo is that there isn’t much when it comes to grip on the device. The only added grip is around the chamber to protect your fingers from getting too close to the chamber so the device can be slippery. I would have liked to see some extra grip added to the button area as this is where you have to have your hand placed to use the device.

Let’s break down the DabGo piece by piece, top to bottom. The body is a truly unique shape with it being more narrow at the end where the mouthpiece is, to quite circular and wider on the other end where the chamber sits.

The chamber sits on top of the device and features a flat mesh ceramic bowl. Around the chamber is a raised circular piece that protects your fingers from the heat of the device. This added design gives the device a more high end look, as the rest of the DabGo is pretty simple. 

Between the chamber and the raised piece are white LED lights that light up when the device is preheating.

Finally, the DabGo is a disposable device, so it comes with a one-time-use, pop-on plastic cover. This cover must be snapped onto the device after you have filled the DabGo with 0.5ml of material. The cover is not removable so you’ll want to make sure that you’ve filled the device before snapping the cap into the place.

The DabGo is rated for a wide range of materials including Sugar, Shatter, Budder Rosin, Live Rosin and Live Resin. I will touch more on how to fill and use the device later but to put it simply, you add 0.5ml of materials to the ceramic bowl, pop on the clear window cover, and you are ready to go. It’s truly as simple as that.

Moving on to the mouthpiece, it’s made with lead-free glass and is super comfortable to use. I can be picky with my mouthpieces but I had no issue with the shape and size of this one. The glass mouthpiece ensures a clean air pathway that will not alter the taste of your material.

On the back/bottom of the device is the power button. This button is used to preheat the device; simply press the button 5 times quickly and the LED lights around the chamber will light up to signify that it is preheating. When done preheating, the LED lights will turn off. From here you can use the power button to draw on the device. Unfortunately, the DabGo is not draw activated so you have to use the power button to activate it.

When the built-in 230mAh battery has died, the device can be recharged using the Type-C charging port on the side of the device. Super convenient for if you still have some material left in the chamber – no waste here!


How to use the Artrix DabGo

Artrix DabGo - 9

Most of the Artrix products that I have used in the past have required the use of needle tip syringes to fill. This is a fairly time consuming process as it can take forever to load the materials into the device.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a needle is not required to fill the DabGo! I was able to use the prefilled concentrate syringe that I get from my local cannabis store with no adjustments or added tools needed. Even better is that I was able to test the DabGo with thicker consistency materials like shatter and was not limited to a small hole in which to fill from. The DabGo is shaping up to be a rather versatile little device!

Since a needle is not required, the only supplies you’ll need are your material and a scoop or wide-tipped applicator syringe, depending on the material. If you are using something like shatter then you can use a dab scoop to pick up 0.5ml and drop it right in there. For something like Live Rosin, you can use a concentrate applicator syringe and squeeze right into the chamber.

Now that you have your needed materials and tools, let’s dive right into the filling process.

  • Ensure there is no lint, dust or dirt in the chamber before you begin filling. 
  • Place the DabGo on a flat surface, like a table. Thankfully the device is able to stay upright on its own. 
  • If you are using concentrates in a syringe, you can go ahead and take the cap off and squeeze in about 0.25ml of material into the center of the chamber. Thankfully, syringes usually come with the measurements on the side of the applicator. If you are using a thicker material such as shatter or budder, you can go ahead and scoop about 0.25ml of material into the chamber.
  • For thicker materials, you are going to have to level out your material before adding the other 0.25ml. Less viscous materials will level themselves out.
  • Once the first 0.25ml has been leveled, go ahead and add the other 0.25ml.
  • The chamber gives more than enough room for you to clearly see what you are doing. When you have filled the device with 0.5ml of materials, you are ready to snap on the cover. To do this, place the cover on the chamber and then press it down with your thumb. You’ll know it’s in place when it sits completely flush.
  • There is no need to let the products settle and the device can be used right away. 

Performance

Artrix DabGo - 14

For such a small device, the DabGo is highly effective at getting the job done. Most dabbing devices are so large that they’re not great for taking on the go.

The DabGo, being a portable solution to that problem, isn’t the most powerful dab device on the market, but the 4.5W maximum output does a great job of effectively warming up and vaporizing my materials. 

The 0.5ml chamber is a good balance where it still holds a decent amount of material, but also still keeps the device a portable size. Just a friendly reminder that as soon as the cover is in place, it cannot be removed, so ensure that you fill the DabGo with exactly 0.5ml of concentrate to get your money’s worth!

I have used quite a few dab rigs in the past and still continue to use them to this day, but the simplicity of the DabGo is something that I really like. It is incredibly easy to use, from filling to preheating to charging – it’s essentially fool proof. 

With each use, you can expect to get a flavorful and clean draw with the perfect amount of warmth. The DabGo delivers a draw with just the right amount of resistance; loose but not too loose. 

The power button on the bottom of the device reacts immediately and without delay. Pressing the button five times puts the device in preheat mode, which works quite quickly and efficiently to heat up material.

The 230mAh battery seemed to last a decent amount of time. I still would suggest charging it once a day or once every two days, depending on how often you use the device, just so that you aren’t stuck with a dead device at a time when you need it the most!


Verdict

My thoughts after using the DabGo are overwhelmingly positive. Its portability, ease of use, ease of filling, easy charging and absolutely zero cleaning and maintenance make it hard not to enjoy using it; I mean, what’s not to love?

Well, the main drawback to the DabGo is that it’s a one-time use product. Once it’s filled and the chamber cover is snapped on, there’s no refilling it.

With the DabGo you get the world’s first disposable dab device that is portable enough to comfortably fit in your pocket, while also being powerful enough to deliver a great experience for on-the-go sessions. 

So who’s it for? The DabGo is a great option for someone who doesn’t want to take their large dab rig out of the house and who just wants something small and effective. It’s also an excellent option for someone who has little to no experience when it comes to dabbing. 

To reiterate, you can’t buy this device with the expectation that it will replace a full sized rig. But if you want a great on-the-go dabbing device that requires no maintenance and is as simple as using it and then tossing it away when it’s done, this is your guy!
