Initially, the herb vaporizer was a reasonably large, stationary unit meant to sit on a table. This is called fixed models. Today, these devices weigh only a hundred grams and can easily be carried in a pocket or bag to consume CBD Vape Juice and other concentrates.
These models of dry herb inhalers are the most popular and vary widely in terms of size, function and price. You can thus find extraordinarily compact and lightweight models with fundamental functionality and temperature control. These devices rarely exceed 100 euros. On the other hand, there are real war machines, condensed technology, colour screen, intelligent heating system, and Bluetooth connection with your smartphone. These models are at the top of the range and can cost up to 350 euros.
The hand-held vapes work with a rechargeable battery via a USB port. Some are removable and can therefore be replaced to extend the autonomy of the device. This is generally between 40 minutes and 1 hour (more for more efficient models).
Much more in demand and more comfortable to build than stationary models, portable vaporizers have exploded in recent years. New companies are entering in this growing market, and dozens of new models are emerging each year. This makes our task more difficult because the already vast offer is continually being renewed. We need to keep abreast of all the news so that we don’t miss a thing. However, some indestructible bestsellers have occupied the top of the table for several years, whether it is the Mighty, the Firefly 2 or the DaVinci IQ.
These larger devices are intended for home use to consume CBD Vape Juice. They are generally more expensive, although it is possible to find models that cost the same as a mid-range portable vape, like the Arizer’s Extreme Q. Stationary devices are praised for their vapour quality, often superior to pocket models, and some like the famous Volcanoare even patented for medical use. Inhalation is done either by a balloon system or via a pipe.
These models correspond to a sub-category of portable devices. They are characterized mainly by their extreme compactness and a thin and elongated shape that reminds that of a pen and an e-cigarette. They are often the entry-level of portable vapes and are quite limited in terms of functionality.
On-demand vaporizers are convection, but convection heating is not always synonymous with on-demand vaporization. The difference with session vaporization is mainly in the way you consume your weed. On-demand models are generally more difficult to master and require a minimum of practice to use their full potential. They are also often more expensive than the others. However, this balances out in the consumption of the herb, which is more efficient and avoids any waste.
