The vape market expands every single year, with new manufacturers offering new products, at new prices. The variety can be overwhelming, even for those of us who vape on a consistent basis. New comers have even more difficulty sorting through the market to find the perfect product. Although there may not be a catch all “best” vaporizer out there, you can and should base your purchase off of your personal needs.
To help you get a better grasp on what you’re up against, we’ve provided a list of points to consider when making your first, third, or fiftieth vaporizer purchase. Consider them below.
What’s Your Budget?
As with any other purchase you make, it’s important to first consider what you can afford. While most over-the-top vaporizers come with an “over-the-top” price point, there are several affordable options that make excellent vaping companions. You can start with a $74.95 G Pro Herbal Vaporizer which is effective yet affordable, or you can go upwards of $499.99 for the Volcano Classic vaporizer, which is well liked across all spectrums of the vaping world.
Alternatively, you can also search check smoke shops or head shops, but be warned: you can run into some shops that try to rip you off or don’t offer warranty. If you aren’t careful you can end up wasting your money on devices that simply do not work. You also can receive something fake and counterfeit that won’t work as well. What might sound like a good idea in the short-term could end up being no better than flushing your money down the toilet.
No matter how awesome a vaporizer might seem on the surface, if it isn’t dependable it isn’t worth much. Depending upon how often you plan on using your device, your new vape should be powerful and dependable enough to stand up to the test. The simpler the design, the less likely something bad will happen. On the other hand, devices with complicated features and accessories can end up being more pain than they are worth. Be sure and read up on vaporizers reviews to see just how reliable your potential new vape really is.
Is There a Warranty?
We briefly touched on this point earlier, but the warranty on your new vape really is critical to ensuring there is a backup plan available. Although a warranty may look good on paper, it might actually fall short when it comes to service. Once again, do your research and check out real reviews prior to making a purchase. Also, don’t forget to read the fine print of the warranty it comes with. You might not like what you find there.
Is it Portable?
Obviously, if you plan on travelling with your new vape you need one that is genuinely portable. Portable handheld vaporizers are just as powerful as the big bulky desktop vaporizers. Convenience is one of the biggest draws to vaporizers wherein you can enjoy your aromatherapy wherever you like. Portable devices should be small, easy to put in your pocket, and perfect for on-the-go vaping. However, keep in mind some portable vaporizers do not work as well as at-home vapes, so read the reviews and the description before ponying up the cash.
And finally, we recommend all new vape users choose a user-friendly unit as their first device. The quality of your experience will depend heavily on how easy it is to use your vaporizer. Make sure you opt for a simple design that puts your tech fears to rest.
There are many other aspects to consider when purchasing a vape, but it all really boils down to your own personal preference. Keep these points in mind when making a purchase but don’t rely too heavily on our opinion.
Variable voltage or single voltage battery?
This doesn’t apply to beginner much even though they can try it, but ask yourself if you want a battery with the option to change the voltage and make it more powerful. This can increase the heat of the heating elements coil causing it to burn too much. You can play around with it to learn more.
