A wax pen is a vaporizer that has been designed to vaporize waxy oil concentrates. With a wax pen, you will find a heating chamber where your concentrate will need to be dabbed. The battery supplies the power, which will then heat up the material and produce the vapor. This vapor can then be inhaled through the mouthpiece.
