The Boost EVO is the latest premium vaporizer from Dr. Dabber. In pursuit of the perfect dab, Dr. Dabber designed the Boost EVO as a portable concentrate rig delivering exceptional hits.
Following in the wake of its big brother, the Dr. Dabber SWITCH vaporizer, the Boost EVO is the next line of spectacular e-rigs for vaping your cannabis concentrates.
This dabbing vaporizer is packed with many useful features like multiple temperature presets, reverse-airflow release to do away with carb caps, a magnetic attachment to easily connect the included glass bubbler and a couple other nifty features.
Design & Features of the Dr Dabber EVO
The Boost EVO is a standout vape as its loaded with many useful features and cool aesthetics.
This e-rig is quite tiny compared to its older brother, the Dr. Dabber SWTICH. Unlike the SWITCH, the Boost EVO was designed for vaping concentrates only, while the SWITCH handles both concentrates and dry herb.
Here’s a list of the Boost EVO’s standard features, then we’ll dive into the specifics of what really makes this vape stand out.

This vape includes a tiny bubbler glass attachment to filter and cool your hits. The glass piece easily attaches to the base of the device thanks to the magnetic quick-connect attachment. The attachment ring is also fitted with a reverse-airflow release valve (similar to the G Pen Connect bong adapter vape) that allows the chamber of the bubbler to fill up with vapor hands-free and without the need for a separate carb cap.
Directly below the glass attachment sits a large capacity quartz atomizer. Vapors from your dabs go directly from atomizer straight up through the bubbler for a clean and clear airpath. Dabs are controlled by six temperature presets ranging from 500-750 F so that you can dial in your desired temperature. You can increase the temp in increments of 50.
On top of that, the Boost EVO uses pass-through charging, meaning you can use the device while its plugged in. No worries if your battery dies on you mid-session. However, the device clearly displays the battery life on the face of the device and will automatically shut-off after 15 minutes of inactivity to conserve power.
The Boost EVO looks and feels cool with its ergonomic design shaped to fit well in your hand. Two no-slip grip pads built into the sides of the body of the vape helps prevent accidental drops. The built-in RGB light display is mesmerizing and customizable with five modes. If that’s too flashy for you, the lights can be disabled in stealth mode.

Since reviewing the Dr. Dabber SWITCH, it’s become my go-to for dabbing at home. Because it’s such an awesome vaporizer, I was really curious to try the Boost EVO when I heard Dr. Dabber was releasing a new dabbing vape.
The Boost EVO rips hard for such a tiny vaporizer, more than you might expect. For my first session, I loaded up a tiny dab of some Alien Bubba live sugar from Cresco Labs (available through Emjay Delivery). I set the vape to its lowest preset of 500°F to see what kind of vapor and flavor this little thing could produce.
I let the chamber fill up before using the carb release and drawing out all the vapor. The vapor was hot and not as smooth as I had hoped.
But after several sessions, I learned that the hits are a lot smoother with the EVO if you constantly let the chamber fill, then clear, fill, then clear. This works better than trying to fill the chamber and clear it in one long hit since the glass chamber is so small and because the device heats up so fast. Now that I’ve learned to vape with the EVO this way, every session is amazing.
The flavor of good cannabis concentrate passes through nicely as it travels directly from the quartz atomizer, straight up and through the glass attachment. That direct airpath is nice and clean. I got pretty high off just one tiny dab – and at the lowest temp setting. The Boost EVO definitely packs quite a punch and is very efficient.
The most annoying thing about the EVO is that you can only cycle through the temp presets in one direction. So if you accidentally skip past your desired setting, you have to cycle through all the presets to get back to your target preset. It would be more convenient if you could control temp settings in either direction as with the Dr. Dabber SWITCH vape. The presets are also color coded, but some of the colors similar, so it can be difficult to tell your current setting.
The giant atomizer on the EVO is great. It’s deep and has a large capacity bowl to hold a decent size dab of concentrate. Just be sure to keep the atomizer full. If you don’t put enough concentrate into the atomizer, it can easily burn off and cause somee harshness.
