Are you wondering what to do in order to get even more pleasure from vaporization? Do you love inhalations, and you’d like to bring your vaping experience to a higher level? It’s time to learn 10 pro tips that will make vaping an unforgettable experience. Some of these things seem obvious, but we constantly need to remind vapers about them… However, some tips will surprise you for sure!
Vaporization – why is it worthwhile?
Vaporization keeps gaining popularity. It has become a hit in the last few months, and it has a long list of benefits. Vaping is economical, discreet, and safe for your health. On top of that, it’s very pleasant.
If you wonder what to do to bring your vaping to another level, this article is just perfect for you. It doesn’t matter whether you’re only planning to buy your first device, or you have one vaporizer or even five of them.
These tips are for everyone and they will help both a beginner and a seasoned vaping fan.
1. Be selfish
Surprised? It’s the first and most important tip! What do we mean by that? That there is no one vaporizer fits all. When you choose your device, you should focus on your own needs and expectations.
Your friends’ opinions and reviews can be just tips that will prevent you from making a very bad choice and throwing money down the drain.
We can show you what’s new on the market, what you should watch out for, and what pros and cons each model has. But at the end of the day, you are the one who chooses your own vaporizer.
Find some time for yourself. Sit down and think about what counts the most. How important are mobility, durable battery, and discreteness for you? How much are you ready to invest?
Based on these initial criteria, choose a few potential candidates, and then pick the one that you feel the best with and that you like visually.
Let’s face the truth… the look is important!

2. You spend less – you lose more
Vaporizers can be purchased in many places, but it’s best to buy them from authorized sellers. Why is it important? We’ll explain it using the example of PAX 3.
VapeFully gives you a 10-year warranty for PAX, but if you buy the same product on Allegro, eBay, or anywhere outside the official distribution network, the manufacturer’s warranty won’t be honored, so the device protection time drops to just 2 years.
On AliExpress, it’s especially easy to find fake devices. When you buy your vaporizer in Europe, you don’t need to worry because in VapeFully, we submit the complaint to the manufacturer for you. You don’t need to worry about the contact in a foreign language or about covering high shipping costs.
What’s interesting, even when you buy directly from the manufacturer, it can be risky. Lately, there was a post on a vaping group, where someone said they ordered the latest VapCap M from DynaVap, and… they got information from customs that the parcel had to be destroyed.
In this case, the device was ordered directly from the manufacturer, but not many people know that certain restrictions, requirements, and costs are imposed on this type of products, and that they are covered by the distributor after the stock is imported to a certain country.
If you want to start your journey with vaporization, but you don’t have a big budget, don’t waste your money buying something from AliExpress. Instead, try e.g. Vapocane that costs just €25.
You can use this vaporizer as a blowpipe in a bong or in a glass mouthpiece that forms a part of a set. I think it’s an interesting solution, but it’s not for everyone because you need to invest some time and effort into learning how to use the device properly. Maybe it’s better for you if you wait a bit and save more for a slightly more expensive vaporizer.
Some vaporizers cost even €400, but there are some cheaper ones that will do a great job for many people and I can fully recommend them. We have Vap Cap M 2019, a nice, butane vaporizer that costs just above €50. There is also Fenix Mini, one of the best vaporizers below €120.
Currently, you can get it at an even lower price because it’s only €64. Sapphire by Storm has also been on the market for a few months, and it costs just €65. At the moment, it’s the cheapest and the safest electronic model among the lower price range devices. It’s worth checking out because it looks like a good, budget vaporizer.
3. Do the burn-off before the first use
Most people can’t wait to get the parcel with their vaporizer, and they want to test the device as soon as possible. However, it’s better to have a little patience because every new vaporizer should be ‘burnt off’ before the first use. It’s a very simple process.
All you need to do is switch the device with an empty chamber on and leave it for 15 minutes. This way, you’ll get rid of any remains of chemicals from the production process, such as grease or oils, and you will avoid the chemical aftertaste during the first inhalation.
4. Use the app
We use many apps on a daily basis. Vaporizers also have their own, dedicated mobile applications that help to take full control over the vaping process and to adjust it to our preferences.
Of course, not every device has an app, but there are more and more being created. How do they affect the comfort of using a vaporizer?
Crafty has two settings of vaporization temperature: 180°C and 195°C. However, if you use the dedicated application, you can set it with a one-degree precision in the range from 40 to 210 degrees Celsius.
The app also shows you the battery level, it has vibration notifications and an LED diode. A cool feature is also the list of the most popular herbs and their vaporization temperatures.
In PAX 3, there are 4 standard temperature settings, but with the app, you can switch on an extra mode that lets you set the temperature with a one-degree precision. There are also many parameters that you can set, such as the vibration level, the LEDs color etc. But what’s best is the possibility to choose among 5 inhalation modes, depending on the moment.
There are modes that make vaporization faster, more discreet, or more intense. Others help to achieve the optimum flavor or maximize the inhalation efficiency.

5. Change the temperature
While we’re on the subject of temperature, we all know that a lot depends on the user’s preferences and the type of herbs for vaporization that you choose. Many people vape within the range from 180 to 220 degrees.
This seems to be the standard. The top limit shouldn’t be crossed, otherwise you risk the ignition of your dry herb. I think this is why the maximum temperatures of Crafty are 210 degrees, and in PAX 3 Vaporizer – 215 degrees.
I’d like to point out that if you care about your health, it’s better if you stay below the level of 250 degrees because vapor produced in higher temperatures can contain benzene. Its quantities are much lower than in smoke, but the substance is there.
That’s why the settings in Crafty seem to be optimal – you start from 180 degrees and go up to 195. What’s important, if you start from lower temperatures, you can do the subsequent inhalation on a higher temperature, using the same load of herbs. This way, your herbs will last longer.
6. Grind the herb well
Properly ground herbs are one of the basics in vaporization. Remember that the material should be dry – that’s when it generates more vapor – and that it should be well ground. Most portable vaporizers are conduction models, where the chamber walls heat the herb.
You can imagine how important it is to grind the herb well. It helps to even out the heat distribution inside the chamber since there is more contact surface between the walls and the herb. This makes the vaporization more efficient.
That’s why I make sure my herb is very well ground when I use my PAX 3. I use Santa Cruz Shredder. My friends have been very happy with it, too.
In the case of Crafty – which is a hybrid model with prevalent convection – I don’t pay so much attention to the grinding because it’s best to use medium-ground herb in this vaporizer. You should always check what’s best for your model.
7. Clean the vaporizer regularly
Each vaporizer is different, but you should make sure you clean it with a brush after every session. Also, once every a few/ a dozen sessions, you should do a thorough cleaning.
It’s best to use isopropyl alcohol in which you can soak all the steel and glass elements. Use cotton buds to clean all the other places with residue.
It’s good to choose better quality cotton buds that have a compact, profiled head that won’t unravel during the cleaning. Also, to be eco-friendly, try to choose biodegradable ones instead of the plastic ones.
When it comes to isopropyl alcohol, it’s best if it’s more than 99% clean. You can get it in shops with electronics or online. In VapeFully store, you can get VapeCleaner that costs just €4.99 and contains 100% isopropyl alcohol.
It’s very economical and you don’t have to go and look for it anywhere. You can also get THC cleaner – it’s a bit more expensive, as it costs over 10 euros, but you can safely use it for cleaning practically all the materials, except for wood.
8. Be “zero waste”
It doesn’t make sense throwing away vaped herbs because they still contain quite a lot of active substances. They are called ABV – Already Been Vaped.
You can use them for baking or for making other edible products. What’s very comfortable is the fact that there’s no need to decarboxylate them, which would be the case with non-vaped herbs.
9. Store the herb in a good container
It’s obvious that a lot depends on the quality of your herb. Make sure you store it in the appropriate conditions. Glass containers are the best for this purpose.
Jyarz Satchmo combines the benefits of a glass container and the discreteness and safety guaranteed by a plastic cover. It is odourless and it blocks the UV rays that damage the active substances.
10. Have energy at all times
Pay special attention to the battery and follow the indications the manufacturer put in the manual. This will prolong the battery life. Before the first use, it’s best to fully charge it.
Each vaporizer is a bit different. You can connect PAX 3, forget about it, and it will be fine because there is a mechanism that protects it from overcharging.
In the case of some other vaporizers, however, it’s better if you unplug them as soon as they get fully charged. It’s also a good idea to have a power bank on you.
As you can see, bringing vaporization to a higher level isn’t such a difficult task. All you need to do is take good care of your device and remember about a few important rules.
While the advice above is mostly directed at beginners, some more experienced users will also benefit from reading these pro tips. Who knows, maybe you missed something that will let you improve the quality of vaporization?
