Choosing a vaporizer
With more and more places prohibiting the smoking of cigarettes, as well as the general ill health that smoking delivers, smokers are now looking at making the switch to vaporizers. The decision to do so is easy enough, especially given the added health benefits of doing so, but deciding why type of vaporizer to get can be tough. Walk into any store that sells vape pens and you will enter a world where the selection is not just varied, it’s downright dizzying. The good news is that there is a vaporizer to suit every taste, and it’s just a matter of deciding which taste best suits your specific palate.
The first thing that needs to be decided is whether you want to go with a portable device or a stationary one. The portable units are very often in a vape pen style, although some of the newer styles employ a boxier shape. Either way, what you get with these is a device that can easily be carried around in a pocket or a purse. They are lightweight, efficient, and can usually be charged on the go via a USB charger that often comes with the starter kit.
The stationary devices are bigger desktop units that wield a whole lot more power and functionality. If you are someone that likes to smoke herbal blends predominantly at home, these types of units may well be the way to go. If, on the other hand, you are all about trying different eliquids to get a variety of flavors, the vape pen will almost certainly be a better option.
That brings us to exactly what it is you want to have in your device when you vape. Some vaporizers are made to hold liquids, while others are all about oils, wax, or dry materials. If you are in a place where herbs are legal, or if you have a valid prescription for herbal medication, you may want to invest in a dry herb vaporizer that will serve as a very efficient delivery system. If you are interested in trying a bunch of different things, you can always choose a vaporizer that comes with different atomizers for each of the different substances that you can vape. Again, there are a number of starter kits available that offer that type of option.
The next thing to consider is vapor quality, which is generally affected by the temperature of the chamber where the materials are placed. You also have to choose between conduction and convection heating, as both deliver a different type of vapor quality. It’s tough to say that one is better than the other, as it really all does come down to personal choice. We recommend trying to sample a few of each, as this will give you a basic idea of vapor quality with each option.
Pricing will also play a role in your decision, and you are going to find that prices are all over the place for vape pens. We recommend having a budget in mind when you start so that you can then start looking at all of the vaporizers available in your price range, keeping in mind all of the things we mentioned earlier in this piece. Good luck, and happy vaping.
