How to: Fill with water
1. Remove the glass bubbler from the attachment (gently pull from the attachment).
2. Take off the Mouthpiece.
3. Pour 1/4oz. of water into the bottom piece, or until the slits inside the glass are covered.
4. If some water drops to the bottom chamber of the bubbler, that's okay, you can tip it forward slowly to let the excess water drip down.

How to use: With a water pipe (18mm Female Connection):
1. Take off the Mouthpiece, and connect the Bottom piece upside down on your SOURCE nail XL attachment (compared to normal use).
2. Connect the 18mm joint to your favorite water pipe!


How to USE SOURCE nail XL Attachment

1. Attach the SOURCE nail XL attachment to your 510 battery.
2. With the glass bubbler removed, screw your desired atomizer clockwise.
3. Replace the glass bubbler after it's filled with water.
4.With your desired settings (check Wattage Guide first), use the included Carb Cap & Tool to pick up your vaping material.
5. Press and hold the Power Button on your battery to start heating up your nail (We recommend letting your nail cycle between 7-30 seconds to reach optimum temperatures.)
6. Place your lips on the mouthpiece of the bubbler, press and hold the Power Button, slowly lower your material into the atomizer, and inhale softly.
7. Once all of the material from your Dabber has been placed on the atomizer, place the Carb Cap and cover the top of the glass bubbler to increas vapor strength and density.
8. Cover and uncover the hole on the Carb Cap to create bigger clouds and better flavor.
9. Release Power Button when all material has vaporized.


How to USE SOURCE slim XL Attachment

Works with:
3 series atomizers
4 series atomizers
XL series atomizers (except 15mm XXL atomizers)

1. Remove attachment cover.
2. Place material in the container.


How to: Using Coil-less atomizers

SOURCE nail Atomizers

  • Remove the bucket by unscrewing the top Retainer Ring counter-clockwise. The bucket should come out easily.
  • Replace with an alternate bucket. Please refer to the guide below for buckets and their compatible heaters:

Quartz Bucket - Stainless Steel 316, Ceramic Donut
Ceramic Bucket Stainless Steel 316, Ceramic Donut
Silicon Carbide Bucket - Stainless Steel 316, Ceramic Donut
Titanium Bucket - Ceramic Donut, Ceramic Heater

Using inserts

Inserts (usually quartz) are used to achieve Low Temp hits by adding an extra layer to control your temperature. To do this, you need 2 buckets and the smaller sized bucket is placed inside a larger one, like this:
--- 10mm - inside - 13mm
--- 13mm - inside - 15mm

SOURCE terra 2

If you use the Terra Core black ceramic cylinder, place material directly on top of the cylinder and run at low temp to melt and absorb it. Then, use a higher setting to vape.

You can easily remove the Terra Core by unscrewing the ring, then place any material to vape inside the sealed SOURCE terra 2 cup.

SOURCE Core (Not included)

Place your material on top of the atomizer over the black ceramic as much as possible.
Warm up the atomizer so the material melts and absorbs.
Raise the temperature to your desired setting to vaporize the material.




How to: Clean

To optimize the performance of your SOURCE nail XL, SOURCE slim XL and its atomizers, we recommend cleaning thoroughly whenever needed.

Option 1: After every hit, use a dry cotton swab to clean any residue inside the bucket while the material is still warm and liquid.

Option 2: Soak the cotton swab in 91% isopropyl alcohol and clean the bucket. Use a dry swab to dry it up.

For thorough cleaning, remove the bucket, soak in alcohol and scrub any residue left over with a paper towel.

For Terra Core: Remove the Terra Core and soak in 91% isopropyl alcohol (will need to be replaced in time). Use a cotton swab to clean the SOURCE Terra 2 like you would clean the inside of a bucket atomizer. 

Option 3: Make sure the battery is not active and locked. Unscrew the atomizer from the SOURCE orb 4 attachment. Submerge the atomizer a container with 91% isopropyl alcohol. Shake softly for 3-5 minutes, and allow to air dry completely.



Take apart your SOURCE nail XL or SOURCE slim XL attachment completely.


Take apart your 2-Piece bubbler.
Soak both pieces in 91% isopropyl alcohol inside a container overnight.
Once the inside of the glass is clean, pour water into the mouthpiece until all of the alcohol has be washed off.


Soak attachment in 91% isopropyl alcohol for a maximum of one hour. 
Use a soft clean cloth to gently remove any remaining residue.
Leave overnight to air dry.



Dip a cotton swab or cloth in 91% isopropyl alcohol, and clean the connection between the battery and the attachment regularly.

Keep this clean of sticky material.


Tips & Tricks

* Uptemping is vaporizing your material from a lower temperature and slowly increasing it (instead of starting with a hot nail). This produces maximum flavor due to all compounds being vaporized at their respective vaporization levels as the temp rises. This also reduces waste by not burning your material, as unnecessarily high temps are not reached immediately. To do this, simply fill your atomizer first before you heat it up.

* Don't overfill your atomizer. This will cause more leaking and splashing and will take longer to vaporize. We recommend filling your atomizer with 0.3g of concentrate at a time.

* You get better flavor with smaller doses.

* Clean your buckets with a cotton swab immediately after. Our atomizers are disposable items that are meant to be replaced every 4 to 6 weeks, cleaning them will allow you to reach the expected lifespan, sometimes longer.

* For better taste - use coil-less atomizers

* For BIG hits - use coiled atomizers (the more coils the bigger the hits)

* For runny material - use black ceramic atomizers. Coiled atomizers can leak a small amount of liquid our through the connection of the coils.


What atomizers work with the SOURCE nail XL?
- 3 Series, 4 Series and XL series atomizers work with the SOURCE nail XL, but the 15mm XXL series atomizers do not work with the slim XL attachment.

What battery works with SOURCE nail XL?
- 510 Threaded sub-ohm batteries with 20w or more output can work with the SOURCE nail XL.

Can I use dry herbs?

- We designed for use with concentrated materials, using dry material might make atomizers die quicker.

Can I use more heatsinks (2,3, etc.) to take more hits?
- Yes, just stack more heatsinks to easily dissipate the heat at your leisure.

What SOURCE nail atomizers use SS316 heaters?

- Quartz, Ceramic, and SiC SOURCE Nail Max (10mm) atomizers.

Can I use any bucket (Ti, Quartz, etc.) with any SOURCE Nail atomizer?

- No. Quartz 10mm buckets are too big for the Titanium and Ceramic housings. Titanium buckets ONLY work with ceramic plate and donut heaters. They will short-circuit the SS316 heaters when used in Quartz/Ceramic? SiC Max, XL and XXL atomizers. 

What kind of Titanium is used on coiled atomizers?

- Coiled atomizers use genuine Grade 1 Titanium coils, lab-tested in the USA.

My atomizer resistance changes during use, why?

- When the atomizer gets hot, the resistance will change. Once it cools it should go down. Coiled atomizers will have their resting resistance change with wear and tear through time. Make sure to also clean all connections of the atomizer regularly
. Dirty connections (ex. battery connection) will change the resistance being read. If the resistance is very high or low, the atomizer might need to be replaced.


Atomizers NOT making a connection (resistance reads 0.00 ohm)
- Remove the atomizer (while cold) and check the center pin on the atomizer to see if it has been pushed in. The pin is adjustable, when this is pushed in it sometimes fails to connect to the battery. Pull out the center pin halfway so that it makes a connection with the battery. 
- Clean all contacts. Remove the atomizer (while cold) and clean the center pin, the connection with the orb and the battery pin using a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol. Use a dry swab to dry the parts, and leave them to air dry completely.
- Atomizer needs to be replaced.

Battery not holding a charge
- Check the removable battery to see if it is installed correctly. 
- Try charging box mod with battery inside for 2 to 3 hours, then remove. Check battery icon, it should indicate a full charge. 
- Remove battery and plug in box mod. Check for charging icon.
- Battery or box mod needs to be replaced.

Atomizers working with a different attachment but not on SOURCE nail XL
- Adjust center pins on the atomizer.
- Clean 510 metal base attachment and heat sink.
- Metal base or heat sink needs to be replaced. (Please note that heat sinks are considered accessories and are not covered by warranty).
