In this review you will learn:

Let’s get started!

What is the Puffco Peak 

The Puffco Peak is an electronic dab rig that easily breaks down into multiple pieces in order to fit into a convenient carrying case. It features for heat settings, a massive pack for dabbing concentrates, and a fairly decent battery life with a somewhat fast charge. 

It comes with the wide range of features and accessories, which make it more of a complete package than most other electronic dab rigs on the market. It does have a bit of a high price point, which is one of the main complaints that many users have with this dab rig.

Puffco Peak Features:

  • 7” Tall
  • 2.75” Diameter Base
  • 20 Second Heat Up Time
  • 2 Hour Charge Time
  • LED Light Band
  • Removable Ceramic Bowl
  • 30 Dab Average Battery Life
  • Borosilicate Glass
  • 4 Temperature Settings
  • Sturdy, Durable Silicone Base
  • Carrying Case
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Dabbing Tool
  • Micro USB Cable & Charger
  • Carb Cap
  • Extra Ceramic Bowl
  • Tether

You can also accessorize more with some Puffco Peak accessories, such as colored carb caps, colored glass domes, and an atomizer attachment. 

How is the Puffco Peak Different from Other Dab Rigs? 

The main way that the Puffco Peak is different from the competition is that it is an electronic dab rig. There are of course other types of emails and electric dab rigs on the market, but many of them fall short to the Puffco Peak in terms of performance and design. 

What makes this design really great is the fact that it is extremely easy to take apart which makes traveling with it and cleaning extremely easy. The ceramic bowl slips right out making it easy for you to access the atomizer below and to clean the bowl or replace it.

On top of that, the glass dome on top disconnect from the battery base, which makes it extremely easy to pack up into the nice portable carrying case that comes with it. The kid also comes with some cleaning accessories, a few tools for dabbing, and a couple of spare parts, which is a nice touch. 

What’s really revolutionary about the Puffco Peak is its compact size, solid battery life, and easy to take apart design. On top of that, the intelligent temperature calibration allows you to keep the bull at a steady temperature throughout your entire smoke sesh. As soon as the device detects temperature dropping, it begins heating the bowl again to your desired temperature setting. 

Puffco Peak Review - Is the Puffco Peak Worth It

Puffco Peak Review – The Real Breakdown

Now that we got the introduction of the way and you understand a little bit about the Puffco Peak, let’s get into the finer details in order to see how this really compares to some of the other options on the market, and if it’s best for you. 

1. Features – How Nifty Is It?

You’re the worst of the features above, what to save you the time of scrolling back up, here they are again:

  • 7” Tall
  • 2.75” Diameter Base
  • 20 Second Heat Up Time
  • 2 Hour Charge Time
  • LED Light Band
  • Removable Ceramic Bowl
  • 30 Dab Average Battery Life
  • Borosilicate Glass
  • 4 Temperature Settings
  • Sturdy, Durable Silicone Base
  • Carrying Case
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Dabbing Tool
  • Micro USB Cable & Charger
  • Carb Cap
  • Extra Ceramic Bowl
  • Tether

At the end of the day, all of these features are extremely convenient and make for a great smoking experience. But there are a few other features that really separate the Puffco Peak from a lot of other electronic dab rigs on the market:

  • Heat Settings – The Puffco Peak has 4 temperature settings: 450F, 500F, 550F, 600F. 
  • Fast Heat Up Time – Heating in 20 seconds is very impressive. It also allows you to apply the dab to an already hot surface, making for less mess and better smoke. 
  • Temperature Calibration – Being able to maintain a consistent temperature is one of the features that makes this piece a smash hit. 

Overall, our favorite feature of this electronic dab rig is probably the portability of it, and the durability of it. I love that it comes in a nice, compact carrying case with a lot of additional accessories and I think that the temperature control is pretty on point. 

Also, with just one button and an easy micro USB charging port, it is extremely easy to use for beginners. 

2. Battery Life – How Long Does it Last? 

The battery life on the Puffco Peak is alright. Compared to other portable dab rigs and electronic dab rigs, it is right in the middle of the line. In general, it takes about 2 hours to reach a full charge from 0%, and a full charge lasts about 30 dab sessions, or 2 hours of full heating.

Compared to some other options on the market, this may seem a little weak. However, it is important to remember that because of their intelligent temperature calibration feature, your dab rig always remains at the same temperature until you turn it off. This feature helps to provide a smooth and consistent smoking experience, but also can drain the battery quite a bit. 

Have you end of the day, as long as you make sure to charge the Puffco Peak after every third or fourth use, you should never really run into a problem with your battery life. But, for an electronic dab rig that costs almost $400, you should be able to expect a bit stronger battery life. 

3. Price Point – Is it Too Expensive?

Here’s the number one question that everyone asks about the Puffco Peak – is it too expensive? Is it really worth the investment?

It’s hard to really answer this question without an understanding of your personal smoking preferences and your overall budget.

For people who prefer a more portable dab rig that can easily fit in your pocket or in small bags, this may not be the best choice. For people who prefer a stand-up dab rig that has supreme temperature control, convenient features, a sturdy base, easy to clean design, and lots of replacement parts – it may be best for you. 

At the end of the day there’s no denying one fact: this is a designer dab rig. It is the equivalent of purchasing a Mercedes-Benz over a Lexus. There isn’t necessarily any improve performance between the Puffco Peak over the Dr. Dabber Elite at about one half the size and price point. 

However, there are some people who prefer a cleaner, smoother looking piece that has a bit more style and flair to it. If that is what you’re looking for, combined with a smooth and consistent smoking experience, then the Puffco Peak may be right for you. 

4. Durability – How Long Lasting is It? 

This is an extremely durable electronic dab rig. One area I think that the Puffco Peak shines over the other portable dab rigs is the fact that its design makes it extremely durable, easy to clean, and easy to keep clean. 

A lot of portable dab rigs have problems with the battery fading over time, internal parts becoming clogged with concentrates, and water chambers that are difficult to fill and that often overflow, damaging internal components. 

On top of that, the silicone base is not only waterproof, keeping the internal components safe from water damage, but it is also very durable. This thing can take a beating.

Also, it is notable that the glass chamber utilizes thick borosilicate glass which is more temperature resistant and much more durable than traditional glass or quartz. 

Last week, the ceramic bowl that the Puffco Peak uses is very durable compared to a lot of other packs on the market for enails and electronic dab rigs. 

5. Versatility – Can You Add Accessories? 

Overall, the Puffco Peak is pretty versatile when compared to other electronic dab rigs or e-nails. It comes with a carb cap, ceramic bowl, cleaning accessories, and if you spare parts that help to keep it going. 

Puffco also has quite a few other accessories that you can purchase in order to enhance the performance and change the style of your dab rig. 

I would say that compared to other electronic dab rigs, the Puffco Peak is easier to accessorize for style, but harder to accessorize for performance. 

When compared to traditional dab rigs, you can also add far fewer accessories. But this is something that is also true of e-nails. With increased portability, you tend to lose a bit of functionality and versatility. 

6. Smoking Experience – How Smooth is the Puffco Peak? 

Honestly, this is probably the area where the Puffco Peak shines the most over the rest of the electronic dab rig market. Because of its larger size, supreme temperature control, ceramic bowl, and large percolated water chamber, the Peak it’s extremely smoothly at all temperatures. 

I would say that in comparison to other portable dab rigs, this is one of the smoothest options on the market. Compared to traditional dab rigs, it is still very smooth and can hang with the best of them (that don’t have a ridiculous amount of percolation).

7. Cleaning – How Easy is it to Clean? 

Cleaning this thing as an absolute breeze compared to most e-nails and portable dab rigs. This is mostly because of the design I have mentioned above.

Because the bass, chamber, and bowl pack are three completely separate parts that are easy to take apart for traveling, they are also very easy to clean. 

On top of that, because the design is less compact than other portable dab rigs, there’s a lot less room for spilling, overflow, and the unwanted burning of concentrates in your rig. 

The ceramic bowl fits nicely in an airtight seal over the atomizer, making it nearly impossible to spill concentrate into the internal components. 

The water chamber fits nicely and easily onto the silicone base in an airtight seal also, which makes it very difficult to spill water into the internal components of the base. 

Overall, because a lot of the moving parts on this dab rig are larger than other portable dab rigs, it also makes them much easier to clean.

8. Design – How Well Built is It? 

Honestly, I have to give it up to Puffco on this one, the design is nearly flawless. 

Everything from the easy to assemble parts, to the convenient and small carrying case, all the way down to the water chamber and ceramic bowl, the design is very cohesive. 

Everything fits nicely where it is supposed to, sits securely on the dab rig, and all of the components are very durable. 

The bowl pack is wide and deep, and the water chamber is large enough to get good percolation, diffusion, and cooling. The base is extremely dirty and durable, keeping the battery pack safe. Lastly, this thing is extremely easy to use, with just one button that controls the entire device. 

9. Size – Is it Portable, Yet Functional? 

Honestly, the size of the Puffco Peak can either be a pro or a con depending on what you are looking for in a an electronic dab rig. 

For people who are looking for something that can fit easily in your pocket and be concealed oh, this is definitely not the piece for you.

However, for people were looking for something a bit larger than most portable dab rigs – for performance reasons, and who still want something that is easy to take apart, pack, and travel with, this may be the best piece for you.

Standing at 7” tall and about 3” wide, the Peak is the perfect mix between a portable and mini dab rig – while still having room for all the electric components that make it one of the best e-rigs.  

10. Temperature Control – How Much Control Do I Have?  

While the four temperature settings that this portable dab rig comes with are pretty much all you will ever need for a wide range of smoking experiences with all types of concentrates, you would hope for a bit more temperature control with a rig that costs nearly $400. 

Realistically, we never really recommend smoking outside of the 400-650F range, and generally prefer 450F as the ideal temperature. But, that doesn’t mean that they couldn’t have given you full range of control over the temperature within this safe dabbing temperaturec range. 

Overall, these are pretty standard temperature settings that you are likely to run into on just about any other electronic dab rig, and you will hardly ever have a reason to go outside of this temperature range. However, I still wish they had made an incremental temperature setting which would allow you to control the temperature by 1-10 degree increments. 

One area that the temperature control on the Puffco Peak definitely shines over the competition is the fact that it has the intelligent temperature calibration technology. This keeps the temperature steady at whatever setting you calibrate it too, providing a smooth smoking experience across your entire smoke sesh with no need to reheat your rig. 

11. Style – How Cool Does it Look? 

I would say that if you are looking for a stylish portable dab rig that is somewhat in between an e-nail and a traditional dab rig, this is absolutely the best choice. 

It’s honestly hard to find a cooler or sleeker-looking electronic dab rig on the market.

They also have a few color options, such as the traditional black design with clear glass, or the white design that glows neon green in the dark – which is pretty freaking cool!

Additionally, you can purchase glass chambers, carb caps, and additional accessories for the Puffco Peak that change the color and add to its stylistic features. 

how to use the puffco peak portable dab rig

Setup – How Do You Use the Puffco Peak?

Setting up and using the Puffco Peak is actually quite simple compared to other portable dab rigs. All you have to do is follow these simple steps:

  • Make Sure it is Charged – To get the best results out of your Puffco Peak, we recommend that you let it charge fully. When plugged in, the LED light display on the base will stop pulsing when the battery has reached full charge. 
  • Assemble Your Puffco Peak – To put your rig together, you will need to first set up the base, attach the glass chamber, put the atomizer in, and place the ceramic bowl on top of the atomizer. We strongly recommend following the instructions that will come with your kit. They make the process very easy. 
  • Fill the Glass Chamber With Water – Fill the glass chamber with water until it is filled a little higher than the holes in the downstem. 
  • Lock the Components in Place – Before smoking, you will want to make sure that all of the components are properly locked in place. To do this, simply press down on the button for 3 seconds.
  • Select Your Temperature Setting – Once you are ready to get the smoking process started, you can click the button to adjust the temperature setting. The button will change colors for each temperature setting, with blue being 450F, green being 500F, red being 550F and white being 600F. 
  • Place Your Dabs in the Bowl Pack – Once you have so like today temperature setting, it will take about 20 seconds to fully heat the rig up. When fully heated, the device will flash 3 times and vibrate to alert you. When this happens, use your jabber tool to place your concentrates in the bowl, and begin taking a hit. 
  • Use Your Carb Cap (Optional) – Carb caps are a great way to get the most out of your smoking experience. The Peak comes with one. To use it, simply place it over the ceramic bowl and twist it gently to adjust airflow in order to burn all of your concentrates evenly and create a better vacuum to prevent some vapors from escaping. 
  • Take A Hit – Once you have placed your concentrates in the bowl, it is time to take your first hit. Lightly inhale, and try not to take too big of a hit, as the first one can always come as a surprise. Over time, you will get used to the temperature settings that you like and the size of dabs that you like as well.
  • Power Down – After you are done with your smoking sesh, be sure to power down the Puffco Peak by holding down the button until the light turns off. Charging immediately after a smoke sesh is a good idea to keep your battery fully charged at all times.

By following these simple steps, you will be on your way to having an extremely smooth smoking experience. 

Concentrates – What Types of Concentrates Can You Smoke With the Puffco Peak?

Overall, you can smoke just about any type of concentrate in the Peak. It is good for smoking:

  • Wax 
  • Oils
  • Crumble
  • Shatter
  • Dabs
  • And more…

Basically, you can use it for whatever type of concentrate you want. Just understand that some types of concentrates are messier than others, and some concentrates also have different melting points than others.

how do you clean the puffco peak

Cleaning – How Do You Clean the Puffco Peak?

Cleaning the Puffco Peak is very similar two cleaning other dab rigs in the fact that cleaning as you go is the easiest way to do it. 

This can be done by simply taking a Q-tip or cotton swab and using it to clean the bowl pack while the concentrates are still somewhat warm. Be careful not to do this while the dab rig is too hot, or you can risk burning yourself. 

If you don’t take this approach, loss of resin will begin to build up over time, making it more and more difficult to clean. But you can still give the Puffco Peak a solid clean by using the following steps:

  • Make An Isopropyl & Salt Solution – Just like with cleaning a traditional dab rig, the best cleaning solution is to mix isopropyl alcohol with a little bit of salt. Place this solution in a container or plastic bag. 
  • Soak the Bowl & Glass Chamber – We strongly recommend that you soak the different components of your Puffco Peak in separate containers or bags to prevent from breaking, fracturing, or chipping that can happen as a result of them hitting one another. Soaking for about 30 to 60 minutes or more will give you the best results. 
  • Clean Your Atomizer – You can access the atomizer by removing a ceramic bowl and then unscrewing the atomizer from the atomizer well. Be careful when doing this to not remove the atomizer from its silicone casing, unless you absolutely need to – as this exposes the fragile piece to more damage from dropping. You can also soak your atomizer in isopropyl alcohol, and use cotton swabs to remove any remaining resin. Just be absolutely sure that before using your atomizer again all alcohol residue has been rinsed off and dried thoroughly, as it is a highly combustible fluid that could cause a fire inside your atomizer. 
  • Clean the Atomizer Well & Airpath – If your peace is extremely dirty and in need of clean, you may also want to consider cleaning out the airpath and atomizer well. You can do this by taking a cotton swab and soaking it in isopropyl alcohol then gently using it to remove any resin. 
  • Use Cotton Swabs to Remove Remaining Resin – Once you have let your individual pieces soak for a while in your isopropyl solution, you will want to use room temperature water and cotton swabs in order to rinse out and remove any remaining resin. If your dab rig is dirty enough, it may take a few rounds of soaking and rinsing to completely remove all of the resin.  
  • Rinse With Water & Let Dry Completely – The final but most important step is to make sure that you have rinsed all of the isopropyl alcohol out of your dab rig components with water, and let them all dry before using them again. Alcohol is an extremely flammable substance, and if you put your rig back together without letting it dry or rinsing it off, it could cause serious electrical problems. Water can also cause serious electrical problems. So, even though you may be eager to smoke your dab rig again, it is really best that you let it dry thoroughly before using it again.

More Puffco Peak FAQ

Before ending this review, we also wanted to take some time to answer some frequently asked questions about the Puffco Peak. 

How does a Puffco Peak work? 

The puffco peak works just like most other electronic dab rigs. Once the battery is turned on and a temperature setting is selected, the battery sends power to the atomizer which heats up coils and then transfers that heat to the bowl pack, heating up your dab concentrates. 

From here, the user takes a hit and the smoke is then filtered through the percolated water chamber and up through the mouthpiece. 

How much does a Puffco Peak cost? 

The Puffco Peak retails for $399, and you can often find online deals for around $379. But here at Best Gifts for Stoners, we have one of the best deals online, with our Puffco Peak sale starting at $349.99!

Why is my Puffco Peak flashing red? 

 Depending on how your Puffco Peak is flashing red, it could mean a few different things:

  • 3 Red Flashes – Low battery
  • 5 Red Flashes – Short circuit
  • Constant Red Light – Overheating

Keep in mind that red is also the color for one of the temperature settings, so if you are seeing it hold read while in use, it is nothing to worry about. You should only be concerned about the button holding red once you have finished smoking, or if you are smoking on another temperature setting. 

How can you tell if a Puffco Peak is real? 

Unfortunately, in this business there are a lot of cheap and fake knockoff products that are produced in China and distributed to the United States. The only way to ensure that you are getting a real, authentic Puffco Peak is to purchase from a secure, trusted online source. We only work with some of the best glass Brands, and do not sell any knockoff products on our site.

How hot does the Puffco Peak get? 

The Puffco Peak’s highest temperature setting is 650F or about 343C. 

How long do Puffco Peak atomizers last? 

It all really depends on how many times you use it, what temperature setting you are setting it to, and how clean you keep your atomizer and overall set up. 

Overtime, atomizers do tend to hold less heat and become less efficient, so no matter how good you take care of it, it will expire one day. 

The best way to tell if your atomizer is still working properly is if it is still heating up in a short period of time, and holding temperatures consistently throughout your smoking sesh. If you start to notice problems with this, it may be time for a replacement. 

How do you clean a Puffco Peak atomizer? 

In order to clean your atomizer, simply use the steps from the cleaning section above. Soaking it in a salt and isopropyl solution for 30-60 minutes or more gets the best results. From there, you should be sure to rinse it with room temperature water and let it dry completely before using it again – or you can risk serious damage to your rig.
