Today, there are many vaporizers out there on the market. When people begin to dabble in this up-and-coming industry they tend to try out the portable vaporizers first and then begin to be drawn into the benefits of a desktop vaporizer. The best desktop vaporizer will be different for everyone.
Firstly, we’ll have a look at the different types of desktop vaporizers for dry herbs and concentrates that are available on the market today and then link that through to the desktop vaporizers that we sell here at Herbalize Store.
Desktop vaporizers, by their very nature, are a lot bigger than their portable counterparts. While the portables have their advantages of being available whenever the desire to vape takes you, nothing can beat the big clouds of a desktop vaping experience.
In fact, desktop vaporizers have been around much longer than the ultraportable vape pens that everyone loves. But what are their advantages?
Firstly, if you’re somewhere with a plug, you’re good to go. There’s no hassle of recharging batteries or changing batteries like with portables.
Secondly, as I’ve mentioned already, the clouds of vapour! They’re really unrivalled. Furthermore, the vapour is purer and cleaner and there’s no accidentally hot vapour or vapour with a burnt taste. They’re consistent time and time again and, once you get the hang of it, they’re so easy to use.
It’s easy to become overwhelmed with choice but we’re going to make it simple. Let’s first look at Whip Vaporizers on the desktop collection.
The first vaporizer introduced is the Plenty Vaporizer created by Storz & Bickel which has become one of the biggest names in the vaporizer industry with their premium high-end vaporizers. Check out the amazing Storz & Bickel Collection here.
Moving on to the Arizer collection, they vary in portability, balloon, or Whip style vaporizers, or both. The Arizer Extreme Q is a fantastic dual-function vaporizer system, that accommodates both Balloon & Whip style vaporizer, which comes with remote control, multiple fan speed settings.
Another great Arizer vape system comes in the Arizor V Tower, similar to the Extreme Q which includes features with precise temperature control with triple heat sensors, 50% more energy efficient, improved compact design, making it perfect selection for desktop vaporizer system.
Moving on to the Plenty Desktop Vaporizer, a great example created by Storz & Bickel. The Plenty Vaporizer design integrates a new and improved double helix, giving vape fans a long vapour path to help cool down the particularly massive hits while great preserving a great consistent taste every time.
The Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition comprises of a wax concentrate vaporizer, different from your typical desktop dry herb vaporizer, the Boost using no wick or coil, ensuring the pureness and most consistent tasting vaporizers on the market. The Boost battery can last 50-60 hits per single charge. If you are into wax concentrate, the Black Edition if everything you want and need.
The Silver Surfer whip style vaporizer currently a fan favourite in the market with vape fans. The Silver Surfer comes in a variety of colours, 3-year warranty, the glass made for the Silver Surfer is hand blown to ensure only the highest quality components for its customers. Most other devices do not ensure this quality for all components, but with the Silver Surfer, everything is taken care of.
Finally, we have Da Buddha whip style vaporizer made by 7th Floor, this device features the same high-quality craftsmanship found in the Silver Surfer while still being the most efficient and cost-effective desktop vaporizer on the market.
When purchasing a desktop system, there are 2 types of vaporizers on the market which are whip & balloon style system has been introduced and made popular by Storz & Bickel, which comes in a Volcano Hybrid and Volcano classic analog version, perfect for using with friends. With convection heating, the warm air passes through the dry herbs or concentrates instead of relying on combustion.
These can be cut so that you can have shorter sessions or kept longer for larger groups to share or for longer sessions. If this sounds more your thing, then a balloon vaporizer would be ideal. Check out various Volcano accessories.
Very few desktop vaporizers have the dual functionality of both a whip and a balloon or bag. These would make a great choice for anyone whether you enjoy long sessions alone or with a group.
Arizer are at the forefront of dual functionality vaporizer systems, by simply giving customers a choice, is the reason Arizer vape system is amongst the most popular on the market with all vape fans.
The Arizer Extreme Q is one of the most versatile vaporizers on the market. Along with dual functionality, the Extreme Q uses precise temperature control with Triple Heat Sensors, with remote control for the ultimate experience.
If you’re used to traditional water pipes, you can get a water pipe adaptor to work in conjunction with your pipe to make it into a vaporizer. Your herbs can then be turned into lovely clouds of flavorful, water-filtered vapour.
What material can you use with a desktop vaporizer?
Most desktops are versatile these days and can handle dry herbs and concentrates but you must check the individual model as you don’t want to mess up your new piece of kit.
Now that you know a little more about desktop vaporizers (or maybe you were already well-informed!), we’ll have a look at the desktop vaporizers that we sell here in Herbalize Store.
First up is the Arizer Extreme Q. Arizer is one of those very well-known brands of vaporizers. If you’ve started vaping, chances are that you have already heard of Arizer.
Their Extreme Q is one of their desktop vaporizers with the same top quality components and warranties that Arizer are renowned for. This is one of the only desktop vaporizers on the market today that can be controlled with remote control.
The vape temperature can be set and the whole vaporizer activated with the simple touch of a button. It has a fast ceramic heating element which operates 80% more quietly than the previous models.
The Storz & Bickel Classic Volcano delivers consistent, quality vapour time and time again. The Classic Version is controlled via a rotating dial which has a temperature range of one to nine, with nine being the highest temperature.
The Volcano desktop vaporizer uses a heater and a fan that sits below the chamber, blowing hot air through the herbs and into the bag. The bag can then be removed and you can draw the vapour through the mouthpiece.
This comes in two types: the Solid Valve system and the Easy Valve system. This is better for single users because you can shrink the size of the chamber to suit you. However, this requires a little more cleaning than the Easy Valve system.
With the Easy Valve system, you buy new bags that are already pre-made with their custom mouthpieces, check out Volcano accessories. The sizes are all the same and there’s much less cleaning to be done. Having said that, the Volcano is one of the best desktops in reference to how little you need to clean it!
The Storz & Bickel Digital Volcano is exactly that. It’s the same as the Classic Volcano vaporizer but has a temperature display and easy to press temperature buttons as well as a 30-minute auto-shutoff feature.
The Plenty Vaporizer is made by Storz and Bickel. It’s great for providing some of the best vapour on the market, with big clouds and excellent vapour production due to its hybrid heating system. It’s ideal as a pass-around or to leave by the bed, thanks to the auto-shutoff feature. It’s also remarkably inexpensive!
The Herbalizer is a top-quality desktop vaporizer. It’s a whip style and it produces smooth, cool vapour, even with the higher temperatures which often results in a loss of flavour.
It’s extremely versatile since you can use the whip and bags and there’s even a steamroller you can buy separately.
One positive point about this desktop is that it heats in about ten seconds, which is much faster than the vast majority of desktop units. There’s also the optional fan assist for when you want large, effortless draws.
The Silver Surfer desktop vaporizer is for the true dry herb vapers use and for good reason. It’s a top of the range whip-style featuring glass construction with a convection heating unit. There’s also the angled design of the heat-cover to wand connection which prevents any of your blends from falling out of the wand.
It also features an indicator light which dims and brightens as you adjust the temperate. There’s also the handy padded case for travel (despite this being a desktop!) and it comes with a three-year warranty too!
When you first look at it, the V-Tower looks similar to Arizer’s Extreme Q. This is a whip-style vaporizer which heats the air through the herb as it flows, not in a heating chamber. It has a simple and easy to use digital display panel to control it and a pleasing stainless steel casing.
You can select the temperature precisely and it also comes with a potpourri bowl so that you can use it as an air freshener as it cools down. This can help mask the minimal odours that your vaping may have produced.
For many of us, desktop vapes are where it’s at. They’re consistent, reliable and durable, providing us with hit after hit of smooth, tasty vapour. If you mainly vape at home, then a desktop would certainly be the best option, especially given the superior vapour quality that most desktops produce.
Portables are all good and well but they sometimes just don’t deliver in terms of consistency or quantity and sometimes the batteries can run flat!
Whether it’s the reputation of the Arizers, or the bag style of the Volcano's, there is a desktop vaporizer that is just perfect for you.
