How a convection vaporizer works
Both convection and conduction vaporizers get the job done, but how they produce vapor is significantly different. The heater in a convection vape is separate from the bowl, as opposed to making contact with it, and only cooks your herbs as you draw. You could take a few hits, set it down, and finish it off later in the day, with zero waste in between. Convection vapes chew through a lot of power, and battery life tends to suffer with most portables, but this isn't the case with desktop options.
Pros and cons of a convection vaporizer
Because convection vapes don’t heat herbs between your hits, they’re less wasteful. This type of heating also produces tastier vapor that other methods simply can’t compete with, but it does come at a cost. As mentioned above, convection vaporizers require a lot of power, and can also come with a bit of a learning curve. You just have to find the sweet spot. Lastly, convection vaporizers are generally more expensive than their conduction counterparts, so price is something you’ll need to consider when making your choice.
Desktop convection vaporizer options
Most desktop vaporizers on the market utilize convection heating. They have all the power they need to produce satisfying hits that you won’t find with portable options, so we highly recommend them for more serious users. The Arizer Extreme Q is a great choice for beginners and comes with unique features. Like most convection vapes, It requires a bit of learning to get the hang of, but will satisfy both light and heavy hitters. Not only can you take direct hits with the included whip, but it also comes with everything you need to blow up full bags of vapor!
