A bucket-shaped attachment on a dab rig in which cannabis concentrates are dabbed. Bangers are made from a variety of materials: quartz, titanium, ceramic, or glass, and they come in a variety of sizes and designs. They are either manually heated with a torch or electronically heated by a coil connected to a power source.

How to use a banger
Bangers come in a variety of sizes and shapes: 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, etc.; and they can be male of female. The proper size and shape is needed to create a seal with the downstem.
Many dabbers use a torch to heat their banger, but it may take time and experimentation to figure out when your banger reaches your preferred temperature. Electric-powered heating coils also exist that can heat your banger to an exact temperature—simply turn it on and set the temperature. These coils can also keep a banger at a specific temperature for a certain amount of time, instead of having to constantly reheat it with a torch after it cools down.
Once the banger reaches the desired temperature, of 400-600°F, add some cannabis concentrate. Before inhaling, apply a carb cap over the banger.
