Today we are going to discuss the factors that should inform your portable vaporizer purchase decision. Likely, you are trying to invest in a quality product that can last for many years, so we will hone the specifications to devices that would fall between $150 and $300. To pick the best device for you, ask the following questions:
Do I want liquid, loose leaf material, or both?
Not every vaporizer is created equally in the versatility category. Only a few allow you to vape both liquid and loose leaf and even fewer do this with a seamless experience in mind. Many devices have cumbersome pieces and parts that are low quality and difficult to clean. The risk and hassle aren’t something you want to deal with on a regular basis. If you only plan to buy dry herbs, though, it might not be totally necessary to buy a device that does both.
What size is appropriate for my preferences?
In this case, we are only considering the portable vaporizer category; however, the size still varies. Size and price aren’t always correlated, but the feature to size relationship can be more closely tied. “Portable” size ranges from something that will fit in a backpack, to something that can easily go in your pants pocket. Consider how you’ll use the device and take note of the size before you make the final purchase.
Do I want the peace of mind that comes from product warranties?
Finally, not all vaping devices come with generous warranties. Most at least give a 1-2 year warranty, but some companies offer 10-year or even lifetime warranties. If it’s down to a few products, make sure a slight price difference isn’t the determining factor. Those extra “insurance years” they offer can save you big bucks down the road. Not to mention, if a company is so sure their product will last 10+ years, that should be extremely reassuring as to the quality.
