Dabado Bolt Vaporizer Review


If you couldn’t guess by the name of the company, Dabado makes vaporizers that are specifically designed for dabbing. These are not the same as the e-liquid vapes that VaporVanity primarily focuses on, but we’re happy to review any quality vaping product. If dabbing isn’t your thing, this isn’t the review for you.

The Bolt is a new portable E-rig that is easy enough for a beginner to figure out but still manages to provide an elite level of performance that will satisfy even the most advanced dabbers. A lot of people are a little too intimidated to start dabbing because of all the accessories that you need just to get started. The Bolt solves that problem by including most of the parts you need right in the box. It is literally an all-in-one dabbing kit.

Ease of Use

Glass portion of the Bolt.

Remember the part where I said that the Bolt was beginner friendly?

Once you make sure that the Bolt is assembled, charged up and ready to go, you tap the power button three times to get it to start heating up. That’s it. The green light that turns on is the indication that the Bolt has reached the first

heat setting. I’ve found that the first heat setting was more than enough for dabbing the vast majority of material and didn’t see much of a need to go beyond to the higher heat levels. But as always, everyone’s personal preference varies and you might want to bump it up to the next level, especially if you’re dabbing material that has a lot more wax in it.

Once the Bolt gets to the first heat setting and you see that green light, go ahead and tap the button three more times to take it to the next level. You can keep bumping up the heat level all the way up to an incredible 980 degrees Fahrenheit (526 degrees Celsius). It’s highly unlikely that you’ll ever need that much heat, but it’s always nice to have the option.

Dabado Bolt base. A little heavy, but well-constructed.


The included battery is a 2600 mAh rechargeable that provides more than enough power for all your dabbing needs. This battery is replaceable if need be. It takes approximately 30 seconds to heat up the titanium dish, and I found that the 50 dabs that Dabado claims you can get out of a full charge to be fairly accurate, as I always end up in the 40-60 range.


It’s clear that the Dabado Bolt is a well-constructed piece of equipment. While it may be possible to find a cheap off-brand portable e-nail that looks similar, nothing compares to the real thing. All of the components seem to be expertly crafted and designed with the hardcore dabbing enthusiast in mind.

I ended up trying out the gold color. I haven’t had the opportunity to look at the other colors in person, but I can vouch for the fact that the gold one really makes an impression. It looks high-end and expensive. In fact, most of my friends (who hadn’t heard of the Bolt) thought for sure that I was dabbing with a $500 e-nail. They were blown away when they found out how much it actually costs.

Bottom line

The Dabado Bolt is an excellent addition to the new portable e-nail category of dabbing vaporizers. I highly recommend it to both new dabbers as well as advanced stoners who want something for their on-the-go dabbing needs. Get the Dabado Bolt at

Dr Dabber vs Dabado : Some Portable eRigs Are Exactly The Same

In the end they are just G9 products with labels.

Two eRig companies that have very similar products are Dr Dabber and Dabado. The products look as if they are made from the same factory. They probably are. Here we will put heads up Dr Dabber vs Dabado on electronic dab rigs their main product. We will see if there is any noticeable difference between the two.

Dr Dabber vs Dabado – Portable eRigs Compared

Dr Dabber has two eRigs, the Dr Dabber Boost and the Dr Dabber Boost Black Edition. Dabado has the Bolt, Bolt Pro, Bolt 2, and Bolt 2 Pro. Dr Dabber may be coming out with a new eRig soon, but as of now the Dr Dabber Boost Black edition is their highest end version.

Dr Dabber Boost Black Edition vs Dabado Bolt Pro

Check out both of these portable eRigs. The buttons are in the same place. The stands look the same. Atomizers look identical. Same heating element? Check! These appear to be the exact same product.

They may not be exactly the same, but they are effectively the same devices. Those new to vape pens may not be aware, but a lot of vapes are the same thing with different labeling. That seems to be the case here.

Dabado Rallys Ahead On New Product

So what does Dabado have over Dr Dabber? The new Dabado Pro 2 Kit looks like a further updated version of the Dabado Bolt Pro (also known as the Dr Dabber Boost Black Edition with different labeling). It adds some pretty decent features.

Dabado Bolt Pro 2 Kit

We compare best to best in this Dr Dabber vs Dabado rundown. The Dabado Bolt Pro 2 Kit does appear to be better than the Dr Dabber Boost Black Edition. Added features include LED screen with temperature gauge, larger atomizers, removable battery, and a twice as thick heating element. The Bolt Pro 2 Kit is also more expensive at $169 than the Boost Black Edition at $139 from GotVape

And The Winner of Dr Dabber vs Dabado Is… Dabado

Dabado wins simply by offering a better option at the current time than Dr Dabber. The Bolt Pro 2 has more features and larger atomizers than the Boost Black Edition.

Things may change in the future when Dr Dabber puts out a new product. For now Dabado takes the lead, although neither product is really worthwhile as explained below.

The Real Best Deal On Dr Dabber vs Dabado

Further research leads me to DHgate to see if I can find the same item for a lot less. I found what appears to be the same model as the Dr Dabber Boost Black Edition / Bolt Pro original version.

It is $71 on DHgate and appears to be the same factory that makes products for Dr Dabber and Dabado. If you buy more than one the prices go down. SPlit with a friend or two and make it cheaper. Overall it is the best dollar for dollar deal if you really want this vape and are not looking to spend more. If you really want the branding, you can get the Dr Dabber Boost Black Edition here. You can get the Dabado items from their website. To get the original manufacturer version by G9 for $71, click the picture below.
