Whether you own a Honeybee Herb quartz banger or not, heating a dab nail is an art. Knowing the dos and don'ts will help. The process of heating a quartz banger is fairly simple. All you really need is a torch to get started. We don't just recommend any torch, specifically a torch that uses butane instead of propane. Heating your banger correctly ensures you get a smooth, flavorful hit every time.

The Importance of Properly Heating a Quartz Banger for Dabbing

Properly heating your dab banger is good for a multitude of reasons. First, heating your dab at a good temp ensures no harsh hit on your lungs when you inhale. Temping your dab correctly also provides a tasty dab that isn't burnt.

Low or High What Temperature is Ideal for Dabbing?

Low and high temperature dabs have always been up for debate in the community, so which one is best? Ideally, low-temperature dabs are going to be your best bet. 

Whereas high-temperature dabs can produce a smoke show, they are harsher, and the taste isn't as good. Low-temperature dabs ensure little waste, flavor, and a smooth finish.

Before purchasing a dab, understanding the disparities between high temperature and low temperature options can assist you.

How To Properly Heat a Quartz Banger?

Heating a banger is super simple and super easy. 

  1. First things first, make sure your torch is full of butane. 
  2. Once your torch is filled and ready to go, turn it on, and heat your nail. 
  3. After about 30 seconds, turn your torch off and allow your banger to cool down. 
  4. Set your torch on a stable place so it does not fall or burn you or any objects around you.

To Heat A Quartz Banger, What Kind Of Torch is Required?

We recommend a butane torch over a propane torch. Butane allows for a cleaner and better-tasting hit.

Propane has been known to have harsh chemicals that can be inhaled when you dab it. Propane also damages your quartz easier and faster than butane. 

Butane is overall safer and the better option.

How Do You Know When A Quartz Banger Is Hot Enough?

A lot of people nowadays use a temping device of some sort, whether this be a dab rite, a terpometer, or a cheap temperature gun from the hardware store. However, a temp device is not required. Before temp devices became popular, most dabbers used a heat and cool timer method. Heat for 30 seconds, cool for 40 seconds, and that is a pretty ideal dab temp.

Safety Considerations

  • Use a Stable Surface:
  • Torch Safety
  • Cool Down Period
  • Clean and Maintain Equipment


All in all, there isn't much to heating a quartz banger, especially when it is done the right way. Aside from making sure you are using butane and properly timing your heat up and cool down, you should always be very cautious when using a torch. Dabbing at a proper temperature will always land you with a tasty, milky, smooth dab.
