Best Vaporizers: Evaluate Well Your Needs and Preferences Before Buying

If you want one of the best vaporizers, you’ll need to resist the temptation to choose randomly or to buy the first vaporizer that comes up in the Google results. Though they are simple to use, these devices are quite exquisite and provide different experiences. So you shouldn’t be an impulsive buyer. This advice works for any type of purchase. Avoid being disappointed or using something that doesn’t fit you well.

First of all, you’ll need to evaluate well your preferences and needs. Think about the budget. How much are you willing to spend? If you’re on a tighter budget right now, you should rather spend money in quality and functionality instead of delaying to buy a vaporizer because you can’t afford a highly customizable one. Colors and designs should matter less if you can’t afford to get more than one or one of the most sophisticated vaporizers on the market.

There are digital and analog ones. Digitals are a better option if you like gadgets, while analogs have better prices. When money isn’t a problem, you have the freedom to pick anything you like. However, a good vaporizer represents a great investment due to its cost-efficiency on the long-term. So you should dig a bit deeper in your wallet to enjoy a high quality product.

Secondly, think about portability. A desktop vaporizer can’t be used outdoors as it needs an electrical outlet. It has a larger size so it won’t fit in a pocket. Desktop vaporizers have other advantages such as better vapor production, temperature control, more efficient heating element. It is group-friendly too. If you want to vape frequently anywhere you might be, get a portable one. The most popular portable ones are pen style vaporizers. They require batteries and extra batteries if you smoke a lot. E-cigarettes can be included in this category as well. If your budget allows you, get them both.

Thirdly, check vaporizer reviews. They provide interesting opinions of customers. If you read lots of recommendations for a certain vaporizer that won’t really work for you, don’t compromise and switch your options. Focus on the items that seem suitable for you.

Last but not least, think about the heating time. Pen style vaporizers are ready to be used in 10 seconds or less, while others will require a few minutes. If you’re home and you’re not in a rush, some extra minutes won’t be a problem.

It’s not that hard to find a great vaporizer for you. But you have to organize things a bit. Instead of randomly reading reviews and websites, write down your needs and preferences before starting to search for a device.


The E-Cig and Celebrities

Celebrities and E-Cigs

BluCig and Jenny McCarthy

McCarthy was the poster child for e-cigs, but with BluCig under the FDA radar. McCarthy has now either withdrawn or BluCig have gone down a different advertising route. McCarthy did however add glamour to e-cigs and gave weight to the e-cig trend.

Sean Penn and Robert Pattinson

It is no secret that these two actors smoke, but both of these stars have been spotted vaping on camera and neither of them tries to hide their interest in e-cigs.

Johnny Depp

In the movie The Tourist Depp was pictured on screen vaping and this could be the earliest on screen introduction of vaping. In the movie Depp’s character was able to vape inside a train. Since the movie it seems that Depp has developed an ongoing taste for e-cigs.

Celebrity E-Cig Benefit

When an actor, actress or musician is spotted vaping it creates credibility to the industry just like an advertisement. As celebrities have more of an impact they are able to inspire others to give up smoking in favour of an e-cig.

The e-cig benefit is that instead of inhaling smoke, the users will be inhaling vapor. Vaporizers come as portable, pen and table top which allows users to vape at home or to take there e-cig with them where ever they go so that they can enjoy the vape. Vaporizers use an e-liquid that comes in various flavours whether you are looking for a similar taste to a cigarette or something fruity like cherry. The e-liquid is heated up when the user takes a draw from the e-cig which then produces the vapor or mist.

If you are looking for an e-cig, VapeStore in South Africa has a selection to choose from.

Alfa Vaporizer by Goboof

The pax and the indica, are non of these too, but if products made in china worry you generally, like myself, you should definitely check out the Alfa.

The Alfa vaporizer haven’t had any bad smell or taste from the beginning. It’s one of a very few units, I haven’t had to burn off any production leavings first and was able to get clean and tasty vapor, right away.

The herb chamber is at the units bottom. The Lid is a bit complicated to close at first though, but you will learn to handle it quickly!

Compared to the Pax and the Indica, the herb chamber is rather small and it can only take about 0,1g of grinded herbs. However, I rather use 4 times 0,1g of herbs than once 0,4g. Especially, if you don’t need that much to get medicated, you won’t waste valuable medicine with it.

Also the heating pin inside of the herb chamber provides better heat circulation within and will use your herbs very equally.

You can choose between three different temperature presets. Lo is 190°C, Mid is 210°C and Hi is 230°C. For dry herbs I would recommend using the Lo and the Mid setting only. Hi would be fine for wax and oil, however I wouldn’t recommend using any of this stuff in your Alfa, since this would require a lot of cleaning, afterwards.

At first, it seems like the Alfa would offer less tempereture options than the pax and indica, but you should not forget about the two automatic settings! That’s actually where the real magic happens. The A/P setting will automatically increase the temperature by 3°C after every puff you take from your Alfa. The A/T setting will slowly increase the temperature until the max. temperature of 230°C has been reached after about 20minutes, when starting at 190°C.

So basically, you have countless possibilities to use your Alfa, when combing the automatic settings with a regular temperature setting. However, this will require some training before you will find the best solution for your personal needs, of course.

Personally, I start with the Lo setting and turn on the A/T setting after about 10 minutes, so the temperature will not cross the 210°C mark after 20minutes of vaping, but will give you the full spectrum between 190°C and 210°C to finish your bowl. Constantly, turning the temperature higher reflects the general proceeding of experienced vaporizer users pretty much and it’s also more efficent than just using one or two setting all the time.

Btw. the Alfa heats up very quick and it reaches the 190°C after less than 30 seconds, already. The airpath is entirely sealed, so you don’t need to worry that the hot air could get in contact with any electronic parts. However, like the Indica and the Pax, the Alfa will require a lot of cleaning. Since there is no screen between the airpath and the herb chamber, you will suck in small crumbs of your herb, which will get stuck in the airpath and restrict the airflow. Also a lot of resin will pile up quickly, if you won’t clean it with ISO alcohol often.

The vapor can get a little bit hot though, when you’re drawing too fast, but that’s the case with every portable vaporizer. The battery isn’t the strogest, but it can provide up to 2 hours of power, with every charge. Also the wheel is a bit loose, but that’s no real issue, too.

Overall, the Alfa vaporizer is a amazing device, I can recommend to everyone, without any doubts. With 199$, it’s cheaper than most of it’s competitors, the overall quality is just great, the taste is good, the vapor is thick, it’s efficent, it’s small, it’s light, it’s stealthy (looks like a powerbank)… What else could you ask for?!

For now, the Alfa vaporizer is only available in North America though, but until the end of this year they want to launch it here, too.

alfa vaporizer goboof

Today, I’d like to introduce you to the brand-new Alfa Vaporizer by Ireland based manufacturer Goboof. The Alfa Vaporizer is a very small and light conduction based portable vaporizer.

With a size of 2x5x9cm and a weight of 103,5g only, the Alfa is in fact the smallest and leightest vaporizer of its kind, so far. Watch out Indica and Pax, here comes your strongest rival!

To say it in advance: You can compare it best with these two units and for several reasons, the Alfa is my favorite amonst these three vaporizers! Most important for me is the fact that the Alfa is not manufactured in china, unlike its competitors. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen many vapes coming from china, good ones and bad ones, but quality control is very different here in europe! You know, vaping is no fun, if you think you might poison yourself while using…
