Anyone even slightly familiar with the world of vaporizers has most likely heard of the Volcano Vaporizer. It’s probably the most popular vaporizer on the block, and there’s a good reason for it. It’s a tried and true product that has stood the test of time for over a decade now. While barely any of the Volcano’s counterparts can make a similar claim, that doesn’t mean it’s without challenge from some of the other high-end vaporizers out there on the market because there’s quite a few stellar table desktop dry herb vaporizer giving the Volcano Vaporizer a run for its money. One such product is the Herbalizer Vaporizer out of San Diego, California.
The Herbalizer Vaporizer is actually considered the world’s first smart vaporizer and before making any quips about just how smart a vaporizer can be, it stands a chance at maybe being the best when you consider that the dry herb vaporizer was actually designed by two gentlemen from NASA. Of course, NASA scientists have also designed mattresses in the past but it’s still an impressive proclamation that only the Herbalizer Vaporizer can make.
The Herbalizer Vaporizer looks like a strange futuristic jam box which opens like a clam making it rather inconspicuous. It’s made from a strong plastic encasing which can also be used as a storage units for the aromatherapy pads, cleaning brush, grinder card, and oils that come with the purchase of a Herbalizer Vaporizer. The grinder card can come in handy but is not a substitute for a proper grinder. It can be used as a whip-style vaporizer or to fill balloon bag attachment which is nice as it’s always good to have options. It’s an option that the Volcano Vaporizer has yet to offer as it is strictly a balloon bag style vaporizer. The Canadian company Arizer makes a vaporizer with dual functions which is a third of the price of the Herbalizer, but the Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer doesn’t deliver as many goodies as the Herbalizer which has a plethora of features never seen before.
How It Works
There’s a reason the Herbalizer Vaporizer can be called the first smart vaporizer and it’s not due to a lack of innovation. The Herbalizer Vaporizer is a convection vaporizer. Convection vaporizers are normally more effective than conduction vaporizers because the heating element heats the air instead of heating the botanicals. This greatly reduces the risk of combustion without sacrificing vapor quality. While most vaporizers use a ceramic or metal heating element, the Herbalizer Vaporizer foregoes both in exchange for a 300-watt halogen bulb. Anyone that’s ever stood in front of a work light for a long period of time should know just how hot that can get, but what does this mean for the temperatures on the Herbalizer? Well, It means that preheating is pretty much a thing of the past, but it’s not just that, this makes the temperature controls on the Herbalizer the most accurate among vaporizers meaning that a user can get the same quality of vapor on low temperatures or temperatures around four hundred degrees Fahrenheit. With the Herbalizer Vaporizer, the user has full control over the density of their vapor. This is a claim often made with vaporizers but there’s absolutely no hyperbole in the case of the Herbalizer. The Herbalizer Vaporizer also cools down extremely quickly and its fan is a thing of beauty.
Some might consider the chamber on the herbalizer to be somewhat miniscule but it doesn’t matter when a device stretches botanicals as much as the Herbalizer. A tenth of a gram of material will usually last long enough for two to three entire balloons. Because the Herbalizer Vaporizer is a super clean convection vaporizer, the vapor is extremely potent, robust, and flavorful as it is extremely thick.
There really couldn’t be a simpler device to use than the Herbalizer. All one has to do is load the chamber (which couldn’t be easier), turn the device on, and select the temperature in order to distinguish the intensity of the vapor. The digital display is absolutely a sight to behold. It’s actually closer to software than just mere digital readings and users can switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit. It really is no wonder why it’s being called the world’s first smart vaporizer. It is incredible just how easily the vapor’s temperature can be reduced or increased just with the press of a button.
How to Clean the Vaporizer
As far as upkeep with the Herbalizer Vaporizer goes, it’s a very clean machine but like all convection vaporizers, it will build up some gunk over time. That’s why regular upkeep is recommended. The device comes with a cleaning brush to use on it and one should wipe it down regularly. There’s a top and a bottom screen and only the top screen collects residue over time so if a user wants to save on downtime, all they really have to do is switch the screens. This is not particularly recommended though as it will eventually lead to two dirty screens as opposed to one. The screens should be soaked in isopropyl alcohol overnight and wiped down. The whips should also be soaked overnight but will eventually collect thick residue leading to eventual replacement. Luckily, extra whips are not that costly of an expense (usually only about five dollars for one hose). The halogen bulb has been tested to withstand thirty years of use and is also covered by the warranty. The Herbalizer Vaporizer is backed by a two year warranty.
The Experience of the Herbalizer Vaporizer
There’s really no doubt that the Herbalizer Vaporizer is the future of vaping. Unfortunately, there is a price for innovation. The Herbalizer is currently one of the most expensive vaporizers on the market. In many ways, it could be compared to buying a Mac in that the purchase ensures a certain level of quality. There’s really no doubt that before long, it will surpass all the other desktop dry herb vaporizers as the highest quality vaporizer out there. A user has to love the fact that it’s not merely a balloon-style vaporizer but can also be used as a whip as well. Another key factor is that the Herbalizer Vaporizer is highly innovative and discreet, but while it’s easy to go on and on about all of the Herbalizer’s nifty features, none of them are more apparent than its high quality of vapor.
