No battery? No problem?
One of the more notable benefits of using a stationary vaporizer is the fact that it does not require batteries for operation. By contrast to portable battery-powered devices, desktop vaporizers are plugged into an outlet, providing consistent and even power without the risk of ever running low.
All you have to do is plug your power supply into the nearest wall socket and enjoy the benefits of vaping without the worry of charging or draining a battery during heavy use or sessions. Not only is this a benefit of convenience, but it can also save you big in the long run. No longer will you need to purchase chargers and replacement batteries as they wear out over time, or worse, get lost.
Editor Pick: Clocking in on the more expensive side is the Volcano Vaporizer by Storz & Bickle, an innovative leader in the vaporizer market. This powerful device both robust and built to last, providing a consistency of quality unsurpassed by other devices without all the frills.
Whenever trying to determine whether or not something is cost-effective, it’s imperative that you look at the big picture rather than being swayed by immediate savings.
Bear in mind that stationary vaporizers can vary in price from one manufacturer to the next. You won’t save much money if you’re dead set on buying the most expensive option. For most people, however, there are quite a few affordable options on the market ranging from $100+ all the way up to $400+.
That said, these machines are surprisingly inexpensive for the value that they provide.
Let’s break down some potential ways a desktop vaporizer may be a cost-effective purchase:
First, if you’re venturing into the world of vaping with the hopes of ending your smoking habit, you’ll save a whole lot of cold hard cash. The average smoker will spend $5,000 on cigarettes each and every year. In contrast, desktop vaporizers only cost $150 or so on average and can last years as long as they are properly cared for.
Editor Pick: One of the most powerful vaporizers is without a doubt is the Airzer Extreme Q Desktop Vaporizer. Quality, performance and affordability (currently priced at a serious value of $149) are just a few hallmarks of this impressive device.
The sky is the limit
While most portable vaporizers are limited by things like size, weight, power/battery, and tank size, desktop vaporizers don’t suffer from such restraints. This means that they can use powerful high-performance heating systems without becoming a nuisance when it comes to using them.
The advanced technology that you’ll find in desktop vaporizers would simply be impossible to implement in their portable counterparts.
Everything from larger chambers to more sophisticated temperature controls are present in these devices, making for a superior experience every time you fire them up.
One of our favorite desktop vaporizers is Da Buddha seeing as it contains all of the aforementioned features while sporting a sick engraved Buddha logo.
It could be healthier
As decades of research have shown us, smoking anything is extremely unhealthy and can have detrimental effects on our lungs. The combustion process can really take a toll on the structural integrity of your lungs — especially over a long period of time.
Whenever you light up dry herbs or tobacco, the process of combustion releases a boatload of toxins that are then inhaled and absorbed into your bloodstream, making their way into and around your body.
In contrast, the entire combustion process is foregone when you vaporize your dry herbs instead. While you won’t light your cannabis or other herbs up, we can assure you that you’ll still get lit if you intend to.
For example, the Stroz & Bickel Volcano was even certified by Canada as a medically sound instrument. In contrast to portable vaporizers, stationary vaporizers are more efficient at turning the oil or dry herb of choice into a vapor. This means a more efficient and healthier process that results in “vaporizing” all of the active compounds you want (like terpenes and cannabinoids) without the negative effects of combustion.
The vapor is also more potent and flavorful than that created by portable vaporizers. Most people have said that they sold their portable vaporizers shortly after trying a desktop vaporizer for the first time.
Potency + efficiency = desktop vaporizer
Expanding on the ending of our previous section, one of the biggest benefits of using a stationary vaporizer is the fact that it holds more efficient operating capabilities and can produce vape that is far more potent. Most desktop vaporizers are convection vaporizers — one of the most effective types of vaporizers.
There are a few conventions vaporizers available in portable forms, but they aren’t nearly as effective as their desktop counterparts. Stationary vaporizers are able to accommodate these sophisticated components.
Perfect for Parties and Social Gatherings
Passing around a handheld device is cumbersome, and likely reminiscent of high school passing around a cigarette under the school bleachers. Not to mention the battery will drain fast and you’ll have to keep refilling the thing due to the small tank/chamber. Not exactly the most efficient way to “share”.
By contrast, desktop vaporizers were made for long sessions and meant to be enjoyed among friends. The larger chambers mean refilling will be needed less often, constant power source by way of a wall outlet means no battery/power/recharging complications, and the volume of vapor is nothing short of impressive.
Is it worth it?
The big question: is it worth buying a stationary vaporizer? We’ve already given you five separate arguments on why you should get yourself a stationary vaporizer today. In case that wasn’t enough to convince you, here are a few more reasons that you should get yourself one:
