What Is A Vaporizer?
A vaporizer is an electronic device which turns liquid or material into a vapor. During the vaporization process, the material is heated to the point where the vapor is extracted without any combustion. This means that you’re getting the best components of your material without any waste or carcinogens from combustion.
How Do Vaporizers Work?
Vaporizers work by turning power or energy into heat. This heat then turns waxes, oils and dry herbs into a vapor. Most vaporizers are based off a similar idea or principal. Vaporizers are basically a battery or power source, a chamber where the material is heated or atomizer and an airpath where the vapor is ultimately inhaled by the user. There are thousands of different vaporizers available, different models, different sizes and vaporizers for different substances.
Which Is The Best Vaporizer For You?
Ultimately the vaporizer which you choose will be determined by what you want to vape and what your personal needs are. There are different vaporizers which specialize in the dry herb, waxes, oils, and concentrates and some which do multiple substances.
The most portable and smallest vaporizers are vape pens. They are increasingly becoming a popular option for people that like to vape on the move and keep their vaping low profile. Nearly all vape pens utilize a 510-threaded connection which means that vape pen components are interchangeable. Due to the low price of vape pens, they are an easy and accessible option for new vapers or people on a budget. Vape pens utilize a conduction style of heating. Conduction heating is when the material is exposed to a direct source of heat. Vape pens that are designed for dry herb will have a heating chamber while vape pens for concentrates like waxes and oils will have an atomizer. Atomizers in vape pens for concentrates will use a coil design. These coils are wrapped around bars or rods and are usually made from titanium. The coils heat the concentrates into a vapor. The most common bars or rods in atomizers are made from either quartz or ceramic. If you’re looking for big hits ceramic rods are recommended while those looking for better flavor should choose quartz rods.
Portable vaporizers are a bridge between a vape pen and a desktop vaporizer. They are larger devices which are considered small enough to be still portable. Portable vaporizers offer vapers for choices and features compared to vape pens. They will allow you to have more control over your vape sessions and give you features such as LCD screens, precise temperature control and the option to vape concentrates, waxes, oils, and dry herbs. Portable vaporizers also offer vapers different heating options. The larger size allows you to choose between either convection or conduction heating. Most vapers that vape dry herb prefers convection heating which heats the air around the dry herb. This means that as you inhale on the vaporizer heated air passes through the herb rather than the herb sitting in a heating chamber.
Desktop vaporizers are one of the original vaporizers and still continue to be very popular for vapers looking for premium performance. Desktop vaporizers require an external source of power as they are much larger than either pen vaporizers or portable vaporizers. Due to their large size, desktop vaporizers offer vapers much more versatility. They allow you to choose from the classic whip style, balloon bag, or even glass adapters with water pipes for filtration. Desktop vaporizers are the ultimate vaporizers for serious vapers.
