Puffco Peak Preview : Interesting Dab Rig But Expensive

Puffco Peak

The Puffco Peak is being eagerly awaited by many, so as the release date gets closer, we wanted to share what we know so far! This “first-ever smart rig” as claimed by the website, costs a whopping $379.99! So, what is all the fuss about? And is it worth the sky-high price?

UPDATE 4/18/2019: Puffco is now facing a lawsuit over the Peak dab rig.

Puffco, creators of the Puffco Plus and the Puffco Pro 2 have now gone a completely different way with the Peak. This device consists of two main parts, the glass and the base. It’s essentially a large portable e-nail, in a new shape. Weighing just over a pound, the Puffco Peak stands at 7 inches tall, with a base 2.75 inches wide.

What’s Included?

  • Puffco Peak Device
  • Loading tool
  • Cleaning swabs
  • USB cable & ‘supercharger’
  • Extra ceramic bowl & carb cap
  • Carrying case

Features of The Puffco Peak

  • 4 heat settings
  • 20 second heat up time
  • 2 hour charge time
  • LED light band
  • Haptic feedback
  • Sesh-Mode Functionality
  • Intelligent temperature calibration

The Peak battery can charge in two hours and last for up to 30 dabs. As this device is intended to be passed around and shared, the new “sesh-mode” function allows you to extend your vaping session. Average heat-up time for the Peak is 20 seconds, which is great in comparison to a typical dab rig. But does it stack up to other similar, cheaper products? As we’re yet to try it for ourselves, this information will be updated after we get to try one!

The Puffco Peak has four heat settings: Blue = 450°F / Green = 500°F / Orange = 550°F / White = 600°F.

The more wax you intend to load, the higher your setting should be. The Peak’s “Intelligent Temperature Calibration” feature consists of smart-ware which can automatically adjust the heat time on your device. This is meant to be useful during repeat use and sesh-mode. The light band around the Peak is designed to signal heat cycle and battery information, so you can dab at the correct time.

Comparison, Puffco Peak vs. Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition

The Puffco Peak comes with an extra ceramic bowl, which is good. But, the fact that the options are limited to only ceramic, and only two atomizers are included, feels like a letdown when you’re paying almost $400! As this is an investment, let’s hope the ceramic is good, and lasts a long time too. Personally, I prefer hitting on quartz as it seems to produce the best flavor without the wax sticking to the sides.

Take the Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition for example. This portable e-nail (which also doesn’t require a blow torch..) has the 3 standard nail types, including titanium, ceramic, and quartz. At $159.95, this alternative has three atomizers AND a replaceable battery, for half the price.

How To Use The Puffco Peak

From what we know, the way to use your Puffco Peak is pretty simple. First, fully charge your device. The light will turn off when it’s finished charging. Then fill the glass piece with water (just over the air-holes) and push it on to attach to the base of the device. Hold the power button down for three seconds to unlock the Peak, and a single click will cycle through the four heat settings. The bigger the wax load, the hotter your setting should be (e.g. Large loads – white setting, low-temp or small dabs – blue setting, etc.)

Pick your preferred heat setting and load the ceramic bowl with wax of your choice. When ready, cover the top of the atomizer with the included carb cap. Double click the button to start the 20 second heat-up cycle. The Peak will vibrate and the lights will flash when it’s ready for use.

When ready, just inhale from the mouthpiece and enjoy the vapor until the heat runs out. Hold down the power button to stop the heat at any time.

Portability and Discretion

One thing that stands out is the impressive look of this new product. The look is new and exciting, and it comes with a case, but could you really use this in public? The Puffco Peak is great for sharing, but this is anything but discreet. The large glass piece, flashing light band and thick base make it impossible to be stealthy with this thing. I’d say, it looks great for house parties, but good luck sneaking it into a music festival or any other public event.

Final Thoughts On The Peak eRig

To be honest, my main thought is that for $379.99 (around the price of the infamous Volcano vaporizer) – this thing better give me the best dab of my life. Every day. Forever.

The unusual shape and design of the Puffco Peak may be a selling point, at first. However, the fact that it’s not interchangeable at all worries me slightly. In a time of constant change and development, is it worth investing so much in one product without any variation?

It’s simple, the high price point fills me with high expectations. Let’s hope the Puffco Peak lives up to them! If you want one you can reserve it here.


  1. Hi my name is Tom I Got my puff CO less than 30 days ago my atomizer already wore out I’m on my 2nd one I can not afford to keep lion atomizers if they go out that fast what’s the problem here

  2. You can get a custom heady, a full rig, and e-nail coil for the same price from RCCtools that delivers a much fuller draw– but admittedly much less portable or sleek overall compared to the Puffco form factor. If I’m on the go it’s pen-action for me anyway.

  3. I contacted Puffco Support thru there website email since thats the only way to contact them about issues with your device, to get help with my Puffco Peak that is’nt working, at first they responded then nothing I have reached out to them the only way I can Via Email so many times and no response after they said they would help me with the faulty devise I Purchased, supposedly this device is covered under warranty for a Year yet not even 2 months later my device that I paid $375.00 is not working the way its supposed to, I responded to every email they sent me, they were requiring additional information which i sent to them, yet nothing!!!! I have emailed them twice to ask about my Puffco Device nothing, what kind of company doesn’t stand behind there product and support there consumers who purchase these products, who don’t even have the decency to respond and are not pro active in taking care of there customers especially if they want us to endorse a device that costs $375.00 horrible customer service, I was really hoping all the reviews I read about this device being amazing was true, but In my case Im not even being heard or helped!!! I am extremely dissatisfied with the service that PUFFCO provides to there loyal customers

  4. The peak is trash… I’ve never had an atomizer last a full day… After buying $150 in atomizers I put it on the shelf… Can’t bear to throw it in the trash where it belongs because I paid so much. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!
    Read Reddit….. Post after post about how badly they perform and how badly puffco treats their customers.
    I will NEVER buy a puffco product EVER again!!!!

    • You’re supposed to clean the atomizer regularly. I would assume you do the ladder, i had my first peak atomizer last me 4 months.

  5. the atomizers dont last
    at 50 bucks a pop ive had to get 4 in the last 3 months
    that puts my peak at almost 600 bucks

    plus the unit it self has been sent back 3 times for a total of about 1 month to 1 andna half months out of commision
    bought a honey badger for back up and it has blown the peak out the water
    badger is reliable and works even better for huge dabs if wanted
