Today we will take a quick look at the recently updated Ares Plus E-Rig from Waxmaid. Currently, Waxmaid sells flower pipes, water pipes, reclaim/ash catchers, nectar collectors, grinders, and other dabbing accessories. We have previously reviewed their Traveler Water Bottle Pipe here, Ares here, and One-Hitter Dugout here. Currently, the Waxmaid Ares electronic dab rig runs for a full retail price of $119.99 on their website. We will detail our experience objectively as always in our non-affiliate reviews. For this review, let’s check out the new and improved features of the Waxmaid Ares Plus.

The only significant update for the Waxmaid Ares Plus is its much wider range of temperature control. Instead of being limited to only two fixed temperature settings on the previous Ares model, the Waxmaid Ares Plus now has three new sets of temperature ranges: Low (450-550F), Medium (550-650), High (650-750).
Most live resin sauces, badders, and budders are best enjoyed between the lowest temperature setting for best flavor and the medium temperature setting for stronger potency/thicker clouds. Most live resin diamonds, diamond sauces, and live rosin badder are also perfectly fine at the medium heat setting. Shatter and larger-sized diamonds are ideal at the highest setting, but not completely necessary. While most of the accessories remain the same, the only new accessory that has been added to the Are Plus kit is an extra detachable green and black silicone mouthpiece.

Prior to this review, having only two fixed temperature settings felt limited on the previous Ares model. However, they have improved its temperature control by offering three new sets of temperature ranges. As a result, the much more reasonably-priced Ares Plus is a significant improvement upon the previous model. You can purchase the Ares Plus on their official website for $119.99 here.
