Vaporizers: A Guide for Vape Enthusiasts


Calvin Mud 2016-12-16 08:00:00

There are many reasons why you might want to purchase a vaporizer. Vaporizing is more efficient than smoking, but it’s also more safe as vaporizers heat herbs without releasing any toxins or carcinogens.

You want a vaporizer, but you don’t want just any vaporizer; you want the right one for you. Here is how you can find it.

🚬 1. Portable or stationary

The first thing you should decide is whether you want a portable vaporizer or a stationary one. Portable vaporizers can generally fit inside a pocket, and they are designed for people who want to vape on the go. They are discreet, run on rechargeable batteries, and most models are easier to use than stationary vaporizers.

Stationary vaporizers are larger and designed for people who only want to vape at home. They can be plugged into a wall socket, and it’s possible to inhale from a whip or a balloon. Since they have larger chambers than portable vaporizers, they can be used by more than one person. To learn more about the different types of vaporizers, visit DashVapes and browse through their collection.

🚬  2.Temperature control

Some models of vaporizers allow users to adjust the temperature of the unit, while other models come with a pre-set temperature control. Being able to choose the temperature you want can be an advantage.

A lower temperature generates thinner and more flavorful vapor, while a higher temperature will give you a thicker vapor that resembles smoke. If you are used to smoking but have decided to try vaporizing, you might prefer thicker vapor.

🚬  3. Conduction or convection

Vaporizers can use two different heating methods: conduction and convection. With conduction vaporizing, herbs come in direct contact with the heat source. This offers a good flavor when the session begins, but it eventually diminishes and herbs will cook unevenly.

Convection vaporizing is when the heat source will release hot hair that will pass around and through the herbs. This offers a good flavor during the whole session, and herbs are cooked more evenly.

🚬  4. Ease of use

Some vaporizers are very easy to use, while others are more complex to use and to maintain. Portable vaporizers are generally more user friendly, while stationary ones will have more buttons to press and more parts that need to be assembled before each session.

It’s up to you to decide if you want something that is simple, convenient and easy to use, or a vaporizer with more features and different attachments.

🚬  5. Ease of maintenance

No matter what type of vaporizer you choose, you will have to maintain it properly if you want to keep it clean and functional for a long time. Keep in mind that some vaporizers are easier to clean than others, so choose one that is simple to clean if you don’t want to commit to cleaning multiple removable parts.

Portable vaporizers are generally easier to maintain than stationary ones, since they have built-in chambers. Glass is easy to clean, so look for this material if you want to buy a vaporizer that will be extremely simple to maintain.

🚬  6. Price, accessories and warranty

Finally, the vaporizer you choose will also depend on your budget, as prices will vary between different models of vaporizers. If you decide to buy a starter kit that comes with accessories, make sure you will be able to easily find these accessories if you ever need to replace them later. Grasscity Magazine has a list of 12 must-have smoking acessories that may interest you.

If possible, try to choose a vaporizer backed by a good warranty, to be sure you are making the most of your purchase. If anything breaks down, you will be able to have it replaced with no trouble.
