The C-Core Vs. the Competition

The C-Core Vs. the Competition

Samantha Catrambone |

Since releasing C-Core Technology, we have received a massive wave of positive feedback from customers and cannabis industry professionals. Creating this collection was a combination of meticulous research, master engineering, and a goal to create the best cannabis vaping experience on the market.

The 4 Ooze C-Core devices are lined up against a bright background

If you still need to try out C-Core for yourself, we searched the internet for competitor brands with similar products in the concentrate and flower vape space to compare them to. Unfortunately for them, this collection is tough to beat. With huge clouds, maximum efficiency, price points you'll love, and an overall elevated vaping experience, we couldn't find any products that were as technologically advanced or affordable.

If you still need to be convinced, read this blog to see how other cannabis vapes on the market measure up. Below, we will compare all 4 C-Core vapes to their top competitor device so you can see the hype for yourself!


C-Core Vapes vs. Other Cannabis Vapes on the Market

Ooze Beacon Extract Vaporizer vs. Puffco Plus

A comparison of the Ooze Beacon for $30 and the Puffco Plus for $90

If you love to dab, the Ooze Beacon Extract Vaporizer will be your new best friend. This powerful vape for concentrates has the familiar sleek shape of a standard Ooze pen but is upgraded with advanced tech for a streamlined dabbing experience. We looked for another wax pen to compare it to, and Puffco, another brand in the cannabis accessory space, has a similar but more expensive portable dab pen called the Puffco Plus. Let's dive into a few key differences between the two devices.

To start, the Beacon Extract Vaporizer comes with the C-Core Onyx Atomizer, a flat ceramic dish that features our smart ceramic, engineered to heat concentrates evenly. This leaves little to no residue behind, so you get the most out of your sesh while saving time on cleanup. Since the Puffco Plus is made using a standard ceramic, your dab won't spread out evenly, leaving a lot of residue after your sesh so the chamber will need to be cleaned frequently.

Another thing to note is that the Beacon also has a wide bucket, which means you will have ample room to load your dab into. Since the Puffco Plus has a skinny bucket, loading is more complicated, and you might even lose some wax during this step.

If you've ever heard of sub-ohm vaping, you know it's an excellent technique for increasing vape flavor and cloud production. The Beacon is a sub-ohm vape device, while the Puffco Plus is not, so you'll notice that it can't produce the same massive clouds. The Beacon is also ⅓ of the price of the Puffco Plus at only $30, so it's an easy win in our books. With more features, better vape quality, easier cleanup, and an affordable price point, there's no competition.


Ooze Booster Extract Vaporizer VS. Puffco Proxy

For anyone that needs a little versatility in their life, our Ooze Booster Extract Vaporizer is here to make your dreams come true. This two-in-one wax pen uses our C-Core technology to deliver a fuller, cleaner, and more efficient dabbing experience than ever before. Switch up your sesh by using this device as a handheld vape pen or touchless dab rig. We tried to find another comparable product, and the Puffco Proxy is the closest one in the market that we could find, although it comes in at a whopping $300 (vs. the Booster, which is only $50). Let's compare the two and see why you should save your money.

One of the best reasons to grab the Booster Extract Vaporizer is its dual functionality. You can use it as a handheld dab pen or insert it into a 14mm water pipe (with a 14mm water pipe adapter included) to create a torchless dab rig experience. Compared to the Puffco Proxy, which only has a single function with the original kit. You can buy add-ons if you want to add additional features, but it will cost you even more on top of the initial $300 needed to get the vape.

Another great thing about the Booster is that it comes with 2 Onyx Atomizers, so you always have a backup! You can also buy additional atomizer packs when those run out, so you never have to stop the party. The Puffco Proxy only comes with one atomizer, so you won't have a backup once the coil burns out. Compared to the Puffco Proxy, the Booster is a much better deal, giving you dual-functionality, and incredible vape sessions, all at a fraction of the price!


Ooze Electro Barrel E-Rig VS. Lookah Unicorn 2.0

An e-rig is one of the best devices for those looking for a torchless alternative to a traditional rig. Many electric rigs are on the market, but none are quite like our Electro Barrel E-Rig powered by the C-Core Onyx Atomizer. It's the first of its kind and one of the only sub-ohm electric rigs available today. This makes comparing it to another product hard, but the Lookah Unicorn 2.0 Electric Dab Rig is about as similar as we could find. Let's dive into what makes the Electro Barrel the clear winner.

One of the most critical differences between both devices is that the Electro Barrel is portable while the Lookah has a few design flaws that could be more satisfactory for travel. The first is battery capacity. The Electro Barrel has a 2000 mAh battery, while Lookah Unicorn 2.0 has a 950 mAh battery. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last, which means you'll have more than double the battery capacity with the Electro Barrel. Great for stoners who are always on the go!

Another is that the Lookah has a spillable water chamber that needs to be fully enclosed, which can lead to a mess of resin water everywhere. Since Electro Barrel has a fully enclosed water chamber, it's a better travel option.

Another excellent component of the Electro Barrel is what we like to call "pass-through charging," which means you can use your e-rig while plugged into a type-c charger. The Lookah doesn't have this feature, so you'll have to wait for it to charge to sesh. In addition, since the Electro Barrel features the Onyx Atomizer is 100% heavy metal free, your vape session will be clean. The Lookah Unicorn 2.0 uses quartz coils, so your vaping experience isn't heavy metals-free. 

The Lookah Unicorn 2.0 doesn't have the same portability, functionality, and safety as the Electro Barrel, which is only $70. At nearly three times the cost ($200), the Lookah isn't worth the extra money.


Ooze Verge Dry Herb Vaporizer VS. Pax Plus

A comparison of the Ooze Verge for $138 and the Pax Plus for $250

If you like to keep it old-school and smoke flower over everything else, a dry herb vaporizer is the perfect way to enjoy modern tech and the OG way of getting baked. That's why we made the Verge Dry Herb Vaporizer, a flower vape with three heating methods for maximum efficiency to give you bigger clouds than you could ever imagine with a flower vaporizer. Let's compare the Verge to another dry herb vape on the market, the Pax Plus, to see how it levels up on the competition.

Explaining the 3 types of heat the Ooze Verge uses to vaporize flower: Conduction, Convection, and Far Infrared Heat

One of the most unique things about the Verge is its nano-Glazed ceramic heating chamber, which features a proprietary ceramic formula that uses conduction, convection, and far infrared heat to ensure your bud is vaporized evenly. In comparison, the Pax Plus only uses conduction heating that doesn't heat the flower as evenly, wasting some of your stash. This heating chamber also makes the Verge 100% heavy metal free, which isn't the same for the Pax since it has a stainless steel heating chamber. Plus, the Verge also has one of the largest capacities on the market with a 0.5g chamber, while the Pax Plus has oven inserts for 0.25g and 0.5g capacity.

Another thing to consider is how long the battery lasts, a fascinating comparison between these two products. The Pax Plus has a larger 3500 mAh battery than the Verge, which has a 2500 mAh battery. However, it is actually less efficient and only provides 8-10 sessions per charge, while the Verge offers 10-12 sessions per charge because of its efficient heating design!

We also love how easy to use and versatile the Verge is, with precise temperature and time control on an OLED screen for easy navigation. The Pax Plus doesn't even have a screen, so you must use a single button to control everything. If you want even more flexibility, the Verge also has a water pipe adapter (sold separately), so you can use your vape with your favorite bong! The Pax Plus does come with a concentrate cup, so you can also use it for dab, which would be cool, but customer reviews say this makes a huge mess, and the added functionality isn't worth the cleanup.

Overall, the Verge features more reliable heating, better cloud production, more sessions per charge, and more user functionality. Plus, the Verge is only $140, 110 dollars less than the Pax Plus, which is a whopping $250. You decide which is worth it, but the Verge is a clear winner for us!
