Portable Vaporizers

Portable Vaporizers

Portalbe dry herb vaporizers are great for on the go  They are small and easy to carry almost any place you may need to go.  A portable dry vape may be the only vape you need, or it may be for the ultimate connoisseur who has a desktop at home, and a portable like the SideKick for on-the-go.

Dry herb vaporizers were created for the use of Cannabis and a portable is no different.. Combustion or smoking destroys your herbs and releases harmful tar and carcinogens.  Cannabis dry herb vaporizing preserves the "FLAVOR".  Vaping also has a much higher bioavailability than combustion, so you will find yourself using less.

Who is a portable vaporizer for?

A portable vaporizer is perfect for a light user or a connissoure that needs their dry herb vaporizer on the go.  They beat a joint all day in flavor and efficiency.

Important features to consider before buying a portable vaporizer.

 

  • Price: Budget again comes into play here.  Remember you do get what you pay for, and remember also where you money goes when you choose a portable vaporizer company to support.
  • Heating Methods:  Most portables vaporizers use conduction heating.
    • Conduction: A conduction dry herb vaporizer uses a hot surface to heat the herbs.  These dry herb vaporizers are often more affordable, heat up faster, are MUCH smaller.
    • Convection: A convection dry herb vaporizer uses hot air to heat up the herbs, releasing and activating the oils into a flavorful vapor. These dry herb vaporizers are often pricier but they have their benefits like more even heating, better airflow, and a smoother flavor.  They are workhorses, and some have been around for a long time, like the Silver Surfer dry herb vaporizer that was created in 2004.
    • Hybrid Heating: Hybrid heating combines conduction and convection in dry herb vaporizers. Many portables will utilize the heat from the conduction heater to help in convection heating also, much like the SideKick portable vaporizer.
  • Chamber Size: The bigger the bowl, the more cannabis or herbs you can fit in.  The more herbs, the bigger the hit will be.  There is more herb to extract!    Most portable dry herb vapes have a similar bowl size, but still small compared to a desktop vaporizer.  
  • Vapor quality: The vapor will be effected by the heater immensely and why ceramic heaters are the best that heat from around the sides and not just from the bottom, much like the SideKick portable vaporizer.  Make sure the heater can get hot enough, you can always turn it down.
  • Airflow: When things are small, the air path also becomes small.  A good dry herb portable vape will have a good airpath for a smooth hit.  While airflow is important to be smooth and free, you must also consider how long the air path is so that you get a cool hit.  The SideKick has an airpath of almost 16 inches for a smooth cool airflow.
  • Battery Life: The battery needs to last, or you need to be able to swap out your battery in order to make a good portable vaporizer.  We like the option of having a removable battery like the SideKick so you can go and go all day.  A heavy user or someone that goes on long vacations may want to go for the removable battery over a portable vape that has a built in battery.
  • Build Materials: The materials used in a portable dry herb vape will have an effect on the vapor flavor.  Ceramic and glass are great, along with stainless steel.  We like to stay away from plastics as much as possible and use silicon if needed.
  • Customer Service:  How long has the company been making portable vaporizers?  Elev8 has been making the Silver Surfer since 2004 providing white glove customer service treatment.  They can help with any repair, or custom order or guide you in the right direction for what you need, want, and all within your budget.
  • Warranty: Will the company stand behind its dry herb vaporizer?  A 3 year is the standard warranty for a desktop and a 1-2 year is the standard for a portable vaporizer.  The bigger question to consider is will the company stand behind the warranty, and will the company be the during and after the warranty.  This is where Elev8 shines, over and over again!

How to choose the right Portable vaporizer?

With a little research and guidance, you will be able to find the perfect portable vaporizer for you.  By making the right purchase the first time, you will save even more money, and have an ultimate experience!

How to pick the right portable vaporizer:

Will you be vaping at home or on the go most of the time?  If at home, a desktop dry herb vaporizer like the Silver Surfer is the way to go.  The SideKick portable vaporizer is great for on the go and delivers cool vapor with the 16-inch air path and built-in stir tool.

Taking into consideration the battery, the warranty and where the money goes makes an Elev8 portable vape the right choice more most.  If you want something else, we know most of the answers and can help you out.

 

Portalble Dry Herb Vaporizer Maintenance and Cleaning

Frequently Asked Questions

How many hits can I get from a portable vaporizer vs. smoking?

You can get between 10-30 hits from a bowl.   The lower the temperature the more hits you will get.  Some start out lower, and increase the heat as the vape the bowl.

What is the best vaping temperature?

The best vaping temperature is one that allows the herb to get brown to dark brown.  Cannabis combusts at 450, so any higher is no good.  Again, many people will start out about half, like 6 on the SideKick and work up to 9 or even 10.  

Do portable vaporizers smell?

Yes, vaporizing cannabis flower will smell a lot like dabbing.  It is a lot lighter in smell than smoking cannabis and is less noticeable. If you are carrying your portable vape with a half vaped bowl, you will smell more than if the vape is empty.

How to tell when dry herb is done in a portable vaporizer?

As you vaporize your cannabis flower, the herbs will change from green to brown.  The darker the brown, the more you are extracting, so this is good!  Just do not go too far and let it combust.  It will be very hard and the flavor may not be what you like about vaping.  But there is still a lot of goodness in the flower, so save it and eat it like Jonny Duff.

Are handheld vaporizers safe?

Yes, they are safe and are perceived to be healthier than combustion. 

What do the best portable vaporizers offer?

Some good features to look for are the size of the bowl, what the heater is made from, how cool the vapor is that the portable vape produces and the materials used to make the machine.
