The field of vaporizers is expansive. Even when narrowed down to only dry herb vaporizers, you’re still left with some important options from design to function. Check out some things to consider below:


True Vaporization vs. Combustion

This is the first and most important choice to make when looking for a portable vaporizer for dry herbs properly prepared with a herb grinder. During True Vaporization, the heating chamber functions similar to a convection oven. The chamber will evenly heat to a controlled temperature and bake the dry herbs. The dry herbs will discolor and likely turn brown; however, they will not burn and turn to ash. When dry herbs burn, their chemical composition changes resulting in a higher toxin emission. True Vaporization is the healthier way to smoke and truly vape. If this is what you want, you’ll love the Flowermate V5.0S dry herb vaporizer. During Basic Vaporization, the heating chamber typically has an exposed coil that provides direct heat rather than the oven-like effect. The temperature is not controlled and the dry herbs are heated by the touch of the hot coil. The direct heat will burn the herbs and eventually turn them to ash. You’re technically smoking and a lot of people prefer this. Not everyone is looking for a healthier way to smoke, but rather a more convenient or discreet way. Picture yourself snowboarding down a mountain or lounging on a beautiful breezy beach with an AGO dry herb vape —now just with the press of a button, you can enjoy yourself without a lighter; no more worries about wind or cold, wet conditions when you’re looking to enjoy your dry herbs.


Temperature Control

If you’re going for vape pens with true vaporization, every vaporizer in that category has temperature controls. Temperature settings will vary from 200-425 ° F and the amount of control needed is based on a users preference. The average person can get by with 3 settings that are usually evenly spread out from low to high. The higher the setting, the thicker the vapor will be when pulled. If you like to fine-tune your experience, get a vape with multiple settings. The Titan 2 dry herb vaporizer has the most customizable settings around—you can change the temperature by a single degree ranging from 200-428 ° F.

Look and Feel

A vape is used often and it is also shared with friends and family, so depending on preference, you may want something that looks real stylish, or you may only care about the functionality and temperature control. Vaporizers come in all shapes and sizes, and some are easy to hold and some can be awkward. Make sure you find what is right for you. The VT 1.0 dry herb vaporizer is cylindrical in shape and comes with a very comfortable rubber grip.

The Size of the Heating Chamber and Battery Life

The heating chamber size and amount of dry herbs that can be loaded will vary from model to model. Some chambers have the capacity for a couple puffs, and others can be packed much more. The smaller the pack, the more often you’ll need to re-pack. Battery power and capacity will also vary model to model. Typically you can expect a True Vape to last the entire day and longer, but there will be differences and bringing your charger along is never a bad idea.
