Basically, you have two different types of Dab pen Batteries Sub Ohm Batteries or Mod batteries and non-Sub ohm batteries primarily standard stick batteries.
What you must know is a non-sub ohm battery will not fire a Sub Ohm wax atomizer and make you think you have a defective unit when you do not. So, when buying a dab pen battery make sure to see the resistance of your wax tank or atomizer, if it is below 1.0ohms then it is Sub ohm, if it is above or is 1.0 Ohm then it is not sub ohm and falls into the standard category.

Most stick batteries that are non-sub ohm are 750MAH or less, Most Mod batteries that are sub ohm have over 1200 MAH of capacity. Usually, the bigger the physical size of the dab pen battery, the more capacity it also has.
