Guide to Desktop Vaporizers

Vaping involves the inhalation and exhalation of vapor, with the aid of an electronic device built specifically for this purpose. There are several devices in the market you can use to vape with different specifications to suit each individual; ranging from electronic vapes (vape pens) to our topic of discussion for the day; desktop vaporizers!

Vaping devices like desktop vaporizers offer a high-quality vapor session, no need for batteries, and powerful heating power with lots of options for temperature control. These factors make desktop vaporizers a popular choice with experienced users.

How do desktop vaporizers work?

Like the title implies, desktop vaporizers are table top vaporizers and are quite sizable. They do not work with batteries (like portable pen vaporizers) and have to be connected to general power supply through a power outlet. This means they can be used for a longer period of time compared to a handheld vape which have to be charged and have varied battery lengths. Most desktop vaporizers use a convection heating system using forced air to heat up and vaporizer the product. This is one of the most seamless and health-conscious ways to vape.

To use a desktop vaporizer, you simply have to;

  1. Properly grind herbs or get your concentrates ready
  2. Turn on your vaporizer and set to the required temperature
  3. Fill the vaporizer appropriately
  4. Allow to heat up
  5. Fill the balloon
  6. Inhale the product
  7. Turn off, clean up and let cool for next usage!

Pros and cons of using a desktop Vaporizer

There are several advantages to the use of desktop vaporizers when compared to handheld vapes, or traditional smoking. These include;

  • More convenient for group use
  • Better for adjusting and controlling the temperature of your vapor
  • Better heating due to convection or hot air heating process 
  • Longer lasting vaping (portable vaporizers require charging)

As with every device,  there are a few cons to the use of desktop vaporizers; and based on your preferred form of use, these may not be too much of a downside. They are quite big, so they may not be convenient for portable use like walking around the house or a trip to the coffee shop. They are quite bulky, meaning it may be a lot harder to conceal or store away the unit especially for users with pets or children in the house.

They are also used while being plugged directly to power supply, meaning they can’t be taken anywhere and aren’t suited for travel to places where there may be different outlet types.

Lastly, due to their advanced heating systems and durability, desktop vaporizers are often much more expensive than portable, battery operated vapes.

Hopefully you can use this information and make an informed decision on your favorite way to vape!
