Dr Dabber Switch Review: Switch to Superiority
Dr Dabber Background Info
Dr Dabber is one of the longest standing brand’s in the scene. They have been building vaporizers since 2013 and have done a great job at it. Dr Dabber has a small award-winning product line that allows them to focus on being the best. Their main product, The Switch, is on another level when compared to other luxury dab rigs. We put the Switch to the test to see if it lives up to its reputation or if it’s all just hype.
Dr Dabber Switch Review
Performance: How does the Dr Dabber Switch hit?
When you get this e-rig you are getting about what you’d expect. The Switch is top of the line when it comes to vapor quality. You have complete temperature control with over 25 presets ranging from 300°F-800°F. Combine this with the fast heat up time and you have full control to take cool to hot dabs with ease. This was by far one of the best experiences we had when using an electric dab rig.
The Switch also managed to create one of the best bubblers for an electric dab rig that sits on top of this monster. The bubbler is a traditional style downstem in-water percolator that provides solid cooling and filtration. Another added benefit of this being a traditional style bubbler is the angled mouthpiece. Most of the other e-rigs on the market have a straight mouthpiece that requires you to tilt your head down to use. Overall The Switch had some of the best airflow as well as design.back to menu ↑
Battery: How good is the Dr Dabber Switch’s battery?
The battery comes in at 3000 mAh which is average for an e-rig in this price range. The battery is also removable which isn’t as common, but is a big plus. What really sets the Switch apart from other electric dab rigs is Dr Dabber’s patented induction heating technology. This heating method is by far the most efficient and provides the Switch with an unmatched 150 sessions per full battery. When you combine this with the fact that it only takes 60 minutes to get a full charge you realize what makes this special.back to menu ↑
Portability: Is the Dr Dabber Switch portable?
Portability is just about the only thing the Switch doesn’t have covered. The Switch is huge, when we say its a monster, we mean its a monster. The Switch stands at just over 9” tall and the base circumference is 4”. Keep in mind that doesn’t include the glass bubbler that hangs off the top of it. They also don’t include or have a carrying case other than their large box. This rig was not designed with portability in mind so if you like to travel or dab on the go we would recommend a different option. A good portable electric dab rig alternative to the Switch would be Dr Dabber’s Boost EVO or the Smokeski.back to menu ↑
Build Quality: Is the Dr Dabber Switch made well?
When it comes to the build quality you continue to get what you pay for. The Switch doesn’t feel cheap and has a nice weight to it. The glass bubbler is a heavy duty borosilicate thick enough that it shouldn’t break easily. It also has a lot of well made attachments and tools that are included. The one thing I could see that was a turn off was the fact they were using cheap LED’s for the lighting. Other than that the manufacturing and build quality of the Switch follow the same trend and are top of the line.back to menu ↑

Dr Dabber Switch Features
Pass through technology
If you somehow find yourself with a dead Switch and still want to start a dab you can use the device while it is charging. This is one of the few rigs that features pass through charging.
Induction heating technology
Most current electric dab rigs use either convection or conduction heating. The Switch has uses patent-pending induction heating technology. This is a lot more efficient and is what allows the Switch to get up to 150 uses per charge. This also is why the Switch has a fast heat up time and can be heated in as little as 5 seconds.
The device is also capable of smoking dry herb, but we wouldn’t recommend it. The flower produces a lot of charring and has a very strong ash taste to it.back to menu ↑
Dr Dabber offers a very fair warranty on the Switch. If you order a Switch it will be protected for 2 years. The warranty covers the charger, battery, and all of the electric components. However the induction cups, glass, and the accessories are not covered.
If you’re just looking to put down the torch at home and have a long term consistent luxury product this is the device for you. It does provide a lot of value if you’re looking for something to keep on the desk or coffee table. If you want something lighter and that is more portable for travel we’d recommend something else. You get a lot out of this e-rig and it has a lot of extras included.back to menu ↑
Dr Dabber Switch Review Summary
Dr Dabber is your choice if you want a luxury high end rig for home. I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re looking for something to take around travelling since it can be quite bulky. If you do want a powerful device and size and price don’t matter to you then this would definitely be the choice for you.
