How it Works and Ease of Use
The Gen 3 model in the OG series is a budget wax pen, and most entry devices of its kind are easy to use. The same holds true with this budget dab pen. 5 clicks of the single button will turn the device on, and three clicks will scroll through temperatures so you can choose which one you want. There is no learning curve at all as far as how to draw in, and using this device is straightforward and simple out of the box.
ThisThingRips OG Gen 3 Temperature Settings
There are three preset temperatures on the OG Gen 3 dab pen, although we aren’t sure how accurate they actually are. The manufacturer estimates that the three settings are 15-371°C, 371-426°C (59-700°F, 700-800°F), and 426°C+ (800°F+) above. It’s next to impossible to tell if these estimates are precise, but as far as the cloud production, there is no question that the OG Gen 3 gets hot enough for quality concentrate rips. We have found that the best combo of production and flavor is the middle setting with this dab pen.
Heating System and Chamber
The OG Gen 3 has what the manufacturer calls a ‘Lava Quartz Ti’, which is all quartz chamber with two quartz coils. This is pretty standard when it comes to budget wax pens, but the performance as far as vapor production leads to larger clouds than you expect.
Gen 3 OG Series Vapor Quality
Living up to its brand name, the OG Gen 3 really does rip, producing thick clouds. The OG vapor production is impressive! There aren’t a ton of budget wax pens that give you this level of vapor production, so we were pretty impressed with that. The flavor and smoothness are about average with the OG Gen 3 dab pen – nothing truly special, but not that bad, either. The lowest setting will give some decently tasty vapor. If you want a dab pen with some truly delicious flavor and a lot of smoothness, check out the Utillian 5 wax pen.
Battery Life on this Budget Wax Pen
Gen 3 model of the OG Series from #ThisThingRips vapes has a fairly strong 650mah battery that is pretty solid. It will last most consumers a whole day and get you about 5-7 sessions. The manufacturer says the battery will last a full 12 hours, but it’s probably closer to 8 hours. This is perfect for casual tokers, but medical patients might want to check out a device with more battery power like the Yocan Evolve Plus.
Aesthetics and Manufacturing Quality
This device has a really solid, durable build. The attractive glossy stainless steel finish feels more like a premium quality dab pen, at a mid-level budget wax pen price. There really aren’t any components that might move around or break down or need replacing – outside of the atomizers. Depending on how you vape, you will probably be replacing the atomizer once a month or so. The kit comes with two up out of the box.
The OG Gen 3 has 510 threading, which is convenient for portable dab pen consumers. While the pen style is attractive with the OG Gen 3, we think a unit like the KandyPens Prism is a bit better looking.
Portability and Discreetness
It’s a six-inch wax pen, so it’s obviously highly portable. It feels nice in your hand and feels good with the steel finish. The pen cap that comes with it helps increase the level of discreetness, and it looks like your typical e-juice vape. The unit does produce a ton of vapor though, so be aware of any kind of odor that might be coming from it.
#ThisThingRips OG 3 Accessories
The OG Gen 3 has a nice kit of accessories. In addition to the device itself, the 650 mah, battery, a mouthpiece, the handy pen-cap cover, a dab tool, an owner’s manual, a USB charger, a storage tray, as well as two dual ‘lava-quartz- Ti atomizers. This is a good amount of accessories, so if you need a quality case that is wear and water-resistant, check out this vape case from Tools420.
How to Clean
Just as it’s easy to operate, the OG Gen 3 is easy to maintain and keep clean. Just soak the atomizer and mouthpiece in isopropyl alcohol and remove any excess material from the chamber. Try to do this to the chamber when it’s warm and easier to remove. You will want to run a heat cycle to do a burn off to make sure it’s completely clean.

The OG Gen 3 model of the OG series from ThisThingRipsVapes produces some serious clouds, is durable and feels good to hold as well as coming with a solid accessories kit. However, it can only vape wax concentrates and the flavor is better on other wax pens. If you want a dab pen that has better flavor for a similar price, check out the Pulsar APX wax vaporizer.
