With a better understanding of what is available and the features they offer customers can choose a device that suites their needs and lifestyle.
Which should you buy? portable vaporizer, desktop vaporizer, or both?
Most people are more familiar with portable vaporizers then desktop vaporizers, not realizing that desktop vaporizers have been around a lot longer making them very reliable with a variety of options and capabilities for both dry herb and concentrates, and in some cases both.
Although portable vaporizers offer varying degrees of mobility desktop vaporizers have no batteries to charge or change, have more power, and are much more session friendly, especially when it comes to a larger group of people. In an ideal world just like people have portable and desktop computers customers should consider purchasing a suitable desktop vaporizer to go along with their portable vaporizer.
Different Desktop Vaporizer Manufactures
Storz and Bickel Desktop Vaporizers
One of the best know manufacturers of dry herb and concentrate vaporizers on the market. For over 20 years Storz and Bickel has been setting the standard when it comes to dry herb vaporizers with the original Volcano. Their products are made in Germany using medical grade materials creating some of the most durable and reliable vaporizers available on the market. As time has passed and vaporizer technology has improved so has Storz and Bickel not allowing the growing field of capable devices to push them out of the market. Although on the higher end of the price spectrum you definitely get what you pay for when buying any of the Storz and Bickel vaporizers.
We will start with The Storz and Bickel Plenty. Being the least expensive of all the different Storz and Bickel Desktop Vaporizers, the plenty offers several cutting-edge thermal engineering features that enhance the vaporization experience, maximizing flavour and efficiency. The stainless steel whip effectively cools vapour as it passes from the heating chamber to the user, which prevents hot air from masking delicate flavours. The all-new double helix heat exchanger is a ground-breaking thermodynamic feature that heats up in half the time of the Volcano, and maintains a static temperature while the user draws from the whip. Ideal for dry herb but also works with concentrates, and is a great second device to go along with your portable vaporizer, especially if your portable device is a Storz and Bickel vaporizer like the Crafty + (plus) or Mighty. Can be used with patented Storz and Bickel dosing caps.
The next device on our list is the one and only Volcano. One of the best desktop vaporizers ever made the Volcano is a tried tested and extremely reliable device, with many continuing to perform like new after 20 years of use. The Volcano Vaporizer utilizes a vacuum system that pumps in fresh, filtered air, which is heated to temperatures needed for vaporization. Hot air passes over your dry herb or concentrates filling your Volcano balloon by the method of forced air. Once your balloon is filled with vapour, it is ready to be detached and used. The device has exact temperature control via an analogue temperature control dial.
Building on an already great device Storz & Bickel has created the Volcano Digital. As reliable as the original this desktop vaporizer offers great vapour production. Like the original the Volcano Digital uses the same patented vacuum heating system, with the added benefits of a easy to use digital screen for exact temperature control and a auto shut of helping tp preserve the devices heating element and conserving energy.
The most recent addition to an already fantastic desktop vaporizer line up, the Storz and Bickel Volcano Hybrid offers the most number of features, including a digital screen, the use of a wipe and balloon and much more. As always the Volcano Hybrid is made to same standard that is expected of all Storz & Bickel Vaporizers. Able to use dry herb and concentrates. But the most expensive of the desktop vaporizer line up.
Dr. Dabber has two great Vaporizers in this category. Dr. Dabber Switch which works with dry herb and concentrates, and the Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition made exclusively for concentrates. Both devices are well made, incorporate large batteries for extended use, and glass mouth pieces for exceptional flavour.
Well made, capable and powerful the Dr Dabber Switch has a large lithium ion battery, glass bubbler and mouthpiece, unique self cleaning feature, and as many options that anyone can ask for. It can be used with dry herb and concentrate but is specifically engineered with concentrates in mind. Significantly faster than others methods, the devices induction heating system creates an even heating surface temperature with less hot-spots, providing a consistent flavour during the vaporizing experience. Because there are no atomizers to replace, the device’s electronics are shielded from the vaporization environment, meaning the unit is completely leak proof. Designed to reduce or eliminate oxygen from the vaporization process, the SWITCH prevents combustion and oxidation, resulting in a smoother vapour.
Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition
Specifically designed for concentrates the Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition arrives in a beautiful wooden box. The Boost Black Edition is a battery-powered e-nail vaporizer, employing both titanium, quartz and ceramic nails and uses a glass water filtration system.
