How to choose the right vaporizer | Everything you need to know


Purchasing something as simple as a regular vaporizer can turn out a waste of money if you head out to the market cluelessly. There are tons of vaping devices in the market with a variety of features and functionality. It can become quite confusing to choose when you have no idea what you are looking for. That is why doing research beforehand is imperative.

You don’t need to sweat over the research yourself as we have already compiled every piece of useful information for you regarding vaporizers. Let’s dig in.

Things to consider before purchasing vaporizers

What do you vape?

Not all vaporizers can handle both the buds and concentrate. Some people are still in shadows and that is why they end up getting the wrong product. Before getting your vape device, remember what do you vape. Some vaporizers are for buds only while others are exclusively made for concentrates.

However, most of them can handle both easily but they are a bit expensive than the standard ones. If you do not have a preference then you should invest in the device which works for both. We’d recommend you to get your first vaporizer from the Mind Vapes store. They have a never-ending variety of vaping devices and you can easily get what suits your needs.


The portability of the vaporizers depends upon personal preference. Some people prefer to have big-body desktop vaporizers that can also be used as decorative pieces. While others prefer compactness to carry these with them anywhere.

If you are one of those people who are on the road a lot then it might not be a good idea to buy a desktop vaporizer. In such a case, we’d recommend you to go with pocket devices.

Heating — Convection or Conduction

We cannot draw a hard line between which heating process is better and which not. But one thing is for sure that both have some pros and cons.

Most substandard vaping instruments have a conduction heating system in which the heating coil is directly in contact with your herbs. This way, your herbs get overburnt sometimes and you get a sharp hit in your throat. Some people like that strong hit but as for the majority, it is not desirable.

On the other hand, in convection hot air is used to squeeze out the vapors from the herbs. There is no direct heating so, your herbs don’t get burnt. Moreover, you can even control the temperature for optimum flavor. 

The downside of this system is that it is not cheap. Most expensive vaporizers come with a convection heating system.

Conclusively, if you are a beginner or loves to have smooth hits then the convection system is for you. But if you seek stronger and more flavorful hits then the conduction one is better. 

Temperature control

No all of the vaping devices come with the temperature control settings. Only the latest ones provide this feature. The device may have a low, medium and high settings option to choose the strength of the hit you want. For more flavorsome experience, you’d have to go for the higher temperature.

Types of vaporizers — in terms of compactness

There are dozens of different types of vaporizers currently available in the market. Here is the list of the most common ones and you can get all of them at the Mind Vapes store.

  • Pen vapes
  • Handheld vapes
  • Desktop vapes

The most portable ones are the pen vapes which you can slip in your tiniest pocket and move around effortlessly. The handheld vapes are a little larger than pen vapes but they have more power. Lastly, the desktop vaporizers are not portable but they offer matchless performance.
