The SWITCH and Induction Heating

Dr. Dabber is proud to launch the SWITCH, our first induction heating unit capable of vaporizing oil or leaf materials with precise power & carefully calibrated temperature profiles.

The SWITCH was designed and developed from the ground up in the United States by our unique team of engineers, scientists, designers, and vaporizer experts. The result is a truly unique product that addresses the shortcomings most people are used to with a vaporizing device.

In technical terms, the SWITCH is a precision directed energy delivery device using electromagnetic coupling to transmit energy in the form of an oscillating magnetic field into the induction cups. Advanced electronics are employed to create a high frequency alternating magnetic field. The magnetic field is absorbed by the induction cups. During this process of absorbing the induced magnetic field, heat is created.

The SWITCH can control power to an accuracy of .1%. It modulates the power to precisely control the temperature of the induction cups throughout the heating cycle. These heating cycles are then optimized to produce the best possible vaping experience. During the preheat phase the SWITCH induces power into the induction cups to get them up to temperature incredibly quickly. In fact, with most temperature profiles, the unit is ready to use within 5 seconds of pressing the ‘Go’ button.

Utilizing induction heating means the SWITCH has a number of advantages. The induction cups heat significantly faster than any other heating method currently available. They are specifically designed to create an even heating surface temperature with less hot-spots, providing a consistent flavor during the vaporizing experience. There are no atomizers to replace. The electronics are totally shielded from the vaporization environment meaning the unit is leakproof. There are no electrical connections to the heating element that can wear out or break over time. All of these induction heating benefits work together to give you a totally unique, precise and practical vaporizing experience.

It should also be mentioned that the SWITCH has been designed to reduce or eliminate oxygen from the vaporization environment. Without oxygen present, your material cannot combust. Plain and simple. Oxygen is classified as an oxidizer which means it easily combines with other molecules forming new and unwanted compounds. The lack of oxygen during the vaporization process prevents combustion and oxidation of the vapor compounds resulting in a smoother vapor, less waste and higher efficiency.

  • Press the (Go) button at any time to cancel the heating cycle.
  • When the unit returns to the standby mode it is ready for the next heating cycle.


Auto Cool Down Cycle

  • The SWITCH automatically cools after every heating cycle.
  • The cool down cycle is indicated by the front LEDs illuminating Blue in a cascading pattern.
  • Minimum cool down cycle is 5 seconds.
  • The automatic cool down cycle length is determined by the internal temperature of the unit. The warmer the unit, the longer the cool down. This feature prevents the unit from ever overheating and causing damage to the advanced electronics.
  • Maximum cool down cycle time is 4 minutes.
  • If cool down cycle is interrupted by powering the Switch Down, then cool down cycle will reset upon powering the Switch back on.

Induction Cups

  • Ceramic Induction Cups should only be removed after they have cooled to a safe temperature.
  • Ceramic Induction Cups should only be removed with the reverse action tweezers.
  • Although interchangeable, the White Ceramic Induction Cup was designed for use with essential oils, while the Black Ceramic Induction Cup is designed for leaf.
  • The SWITCH is able to detect whether or not an Induction Cup is present and will not begin a heating cycle without a Ceramic Induction Cup in place.
  • Trying to operate the SWITCH with anything other than authentic Dr. Dabber SWITCH Induction Cups may damage the unit and/or cause bodily harm and will void all warranty.
