During convection, the herbs don’t come in contact with the heater as it is placed between the chamber with the herbs and the air inlet. The air, heated by the heater, goes through the chamber filled with herbs and gets all the properties out of them. You can compare it to a special kind of conduction, where the heating surface is formed not by a ceramic plaque, but by every air particle. This means that the vaporisation is exceptionally even and doesn’t require stirring. Also, more even vaporisation means even release of taste, which gives more equalized taste sensations, as opposed to conduction vaporisers, where the taste can be very intensive at the beginning. The disadvantage of this solution is a longer initial heating time.
Requirements versus budget
Think about what exactly you want from your vaporiser. Do you want the maximum of taste sensations and savings on herbs or is a small advantage over burning enough for you? Do you want a precise control of temperature or do you find this function redundant? Are you interested in extra accessories, water filters and cases?
If your budget is limited, you don’t have to worry that by investing in a cheaper device you will make a mistake and you won’t be happy with the purchase. In VapeFully, our focus is on the quality of the devices – we sell only verified products with a certain level of functionality and quality. When we test the products, our main objective is your safety – we check whether the materials used are not harmful for your health. What’s more, we make sure that every vaporiser available indeed vaporises the herbs rather than just burn them, which is common in the cheaper vaporisers. However, if you can spend a larger sum, it is worth investing in a device of a higher quality, with a wider range of functions, as it will make your inhalation sessions more enjoyable.
Does the flavour count? It does, indeed, but even the cheapest devices will let you notice a huge difference between vaporising and burning. As the price of the device goes up, so does the quality and the taste of the vapour.
Is temperature control indeed necessary? Yes and no. It mostly depends on the type of herbs that you are planning to use. Some of them require a higher temperature, others a lower one. In the majority of the cases, however, the temperature of around 190-200°C is enough. It is worth mentioning that the temperature of 200°C is quite symbolic. Tar substances that may be carcinogenic don’t get produced below this temperature.
Are water filters indeed useful? Yes! Water filter, combined with a vaporised fume, is the best solution that you might imagine. It is worth investing into extra accessories as they improve the flavour, humidity and the quality of the vapour.
4. Stationary vaporisers: Balloon or tube? Or maybe both?
Stationary vaporisers give the possibility of direct inhalation through a tube made of PVC or silicone or through a balloon – a plastic bag into which a vaporiser built into the ventilator blows the vapour produced.
Due to the capacity, a balloon is much more handy for group inhalation. It also gives more freedom and is easier to use. For those with health problems, the easier inhaling from the balloon is an important advantage. It puts up no resistance at all. When you inhale from a tube, you have to ‘pull’ the air through the chamber with herbs. The more the chamber is filled with herbs, the more resistance it puts up. A tube allows, above all, to control the amount of the inhaled vapour, but it also forces you to stay within the reach of the vaporiser. If a tube seems like a good solution to you, consider buying V-Tower. Are you interested in balloons only? We recommend Volcano Classic/Digit. Or maybe you feel like having both? Choose Extreme Q 4.0 or VapirRise.
5. Simplicity of use
Do you like learning new things and you are willing to experiment? Choose Magic Flight Launch Box that with time and gained experience turns into a very efficient vaporiser. Or perhaps you want to have a simple vaporiser that is supposed to fulfil its basic functions? Consider the vaporisers from Flowermate series. Do you like getting ready for the evening ritual and you are happy to spend some extra time preparing it? We recommend Aromed that requires attaching several glass parts, pouring some water and a precise manual setting of the heater above the heating chamber. It will repay with the vapour of an unusual quality.
We know that the choice of the device is not easy due to a wide diversity. Beginners normally don’t know what is important and what’s not. We hope that we managed to clarify the most important aspect. We encourage you to filter the products by preferences and to get acquainted with the products specifications. Fingers crossed for your right choice of an ideal vaporiser!
