16 Qualities a Dry Herb Vaporizer Should Have

Because of the benefits of using a dry herb vaporizer, many herb consumers have started buying dry herb vapes so they can switch to a healthier alternative. That said, many who rush into the bandwagon end up buying substandard herb vapes that break as soon as they power it on. If you are on the market for an herbal vape, here are 16 qualities you should be looking out for to help you find the right device that suits you.

1. Portable Vaporizer

Typically, you would want to have a vaporizer you can take with you anywhere. It makes consuming herbs more convenient since you can take your sessions with you almost anywhere you go. It also benefits medical consumers because they can consume their select botanicals even when they are on the go.

2. A Powerful Vape Battery

When you have a portable dry herb vaporizer, of course, you are going to want to use it for multiple vape sessions. That said, it is important to pick out a dry herb vaporizer that has a larger battery capacity. The higher the mAh of the battery the more power it can store, and therefore the more sessions you will get out of it.

3. Variable Vaping Temperature Settings

Another feature you should look for when buying a dry herb vaporizer is temperature flexibility. Cheaper vapes will have preset temperature levels but some of the better ones on the market will come with precise temperature settings that you can toggle between.  The Titan 2 dry herb vaporizer allows you to change temperature by a single degree at a time between 200 and 428 degrees Fahrenheit – now that’s temperature control.

4. A Display Screen 

To accurately tell the running temperature of your dry herb vaporizer, make sure to buy one that has a display screen. Many high-quality vaporizers also allow other information to be shown on the display screen including battery life, puff counts etc.

5. USB Charging

Today’s generation of vaporizers should at least be equipped with a USB charger. Not only does it allow faster charging and more stable power delivery, but it is also more convenient because you can use your smartphone and tablet charger to juice up your vaporizer. The more devices working from a single cord the better, less waste.

6. Removable Vape Battery

Not super common nowadays, partly due to vape battery regulation, but a vaporizer with a removable battery will allow you to vape longer — even in places where there are no power outlets. Should you plan to take your dry herb vaporizer on vacations, like when you go camping, you can bring extra pre-charged batteries and simply swap them out so you can continue your sessions.

7. Replaceable Vape Parts

Speaking of replaceable parts, it’s best to go with a dry herb vaporizer with replaceable or removable parts. This will help you keep your vaporizer clean and in good working condition. Dry herb vaporizers are also susceptible to wear and tear and having to replace some of the parts will allow you to prolong the lifespan of your dry herb vape.

8. Affordable

When investing in an herb vape, it is also important to go for one that does not break the bank. There are a lot of vaporizers on the market today that offer superior quality and professional-level performance while sporting an affordable price tag.

9. Heating Element

Not all dry herb vaporizers are made equal. Some use heating elements that affect the quality of your vapor. That said, go for a dry herb vape that uses a convection heating style. Convection vapes use the power of heated air to extract the vapor from your botanicals without burning the herbs in the process. The result is clean vapor production with a high concentration of its natural active ingredients. The other types of dry herb vaporizers use combustion, which heats herb with a hot coil, and this is just like smoking a pipe, just more techie.

10. Quality Vape Parts

A vaporizer made with parts of better quality will last longer than ones made with weaker ones. Look for a dry herb vaporizer made that uses medical-grade components or at the very least food-safe ones. They will prove to be better for you in the long run as weaker plastic may have toxic compounds that can rub off on the vapor.

11. Ease of Use

You do not want to spend weeks training yourself how to use a vaporizer. And while most manufacturers try to do their best to teach the user experience, they will have some getting used to, especially if you are new to vaporizers. So, make sure to get a dry herb vaporizer that will be easy to use and will allow you to consume your herbs with ease.

12. Accessory Compatibility

Accessories will allow you to use your dry herb vaporizers with other vaping or smoking paraphernalia like water pipes. Some vaporizers use special adapters to let you connect your dry herb vaporizer to a bong allowing you to enjoy the benefits of water filtration and moisture conditioning. Other accessories like a grinder improve your sessions by enhancing the quality of your herbs.

13. Versatile Vaping

Versatility is another feature you would want to see in a dry herb vaporizer. Instead of buying a dry herb vape that can only vaporize herbs and other dried plant matter, why not go for a device that can also vaporize wax concentrates and oils? This way you not only get to consume herbs but also enjoy the benefits of consuming wax and oils. The SteamCloud EVOD vape battery is compatible with dry herb, wax, and oil vape cartridges.

14. Discreet

If you are using a vaporizer when you are out and about, discretion is key. It is also one quality sought-after not only for portable vaporizers but also for dry herb vaporizers of all varieties. On that note, it is best to buy a vaporizer that does not come in large sizes or is finished with loud colors. As much as possible, find a vaporizer that does not catch as much attention when used.

15. Warranty

Warranty is also an important matter because you are going to want that extra layer of protection when your dry herb vaporizer breaks unexpectedly. Some companies honor warranties allowing customers not only to get their money’s worth but also to have a sense of security.

16. Reputation

You also want to get your dry herb vaporizer from a reliable and reputable company, like Dark Side Vapes. They sell the E-CLIPSE dry herb vaporizer which comes with some of the best features you can find in a dry herb vape.

Final Words

Finding a good-quality dry herb vaporizer can be challenging, especially if it is your first time buying one. Use these tips so you have a guided preference and so you can get the best vaporizer that will suit your needs.
