How to Choose a Vaporizer
Most of the makers of vaporizers will claim their products are the best, while alleging various health risks associated with the competitors’ models. For a consumer, this can be quite confusing. It is important then for the consumers to understand the difference in the heating elements used in the manufacture of the vaporizers, which is more important than which model it comes shipped in.
The heating element of a vaporizer is where all concern should be. It regulates the temperature of the air that catalyzes the active ingredients as air passes through it. The air can be forced through by a mechanism, or by the inhalant’s pulling. The element need to maintain an accurate temperature setting. The kind of heating elements vary in type and design.
An example of a heating element is the ceramic kind. They are said to be the cleanest and thus the healthiest. Ceramic can withstand extremely high temperatures before they are affected. This makes them the cleanest and healthiest. This should not be taken to mean that other heating elements are any less, since their boiling points can never be reached in the operation of a vaporizer.
It is also important to know whether the ceramic used in the vaporizer cover all or only parts of it, as other materials in the vaporizing channel can affect it. If you get a cheap vaporizer, you can bet there are other materials used in the heating channel. Sometimes, a manufacturer can tell you what was used when you ask, which if they did not, you would be forced to take the vaporizer apart.
The high regard in which the ceramic vaporizers are held makes their overall reputation easily tarnished. High quality ceramic vaporizers are the best in the market. When combined with precision engineered circuitry and computer chip technology, they are also very accurate.
Aluminum is also another example if a heating element. It is argued to be the best, since it responds to heat faster. It may have a lower boiling point than ceramic, but it is still high enough not to endanger the life of the user. It is therefore wrong for some people to say it can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
Another one is glass. It does not differ much to ceramic in its properties.
When you consider all this, it becomes clear that choosing a heating element has more to do with personal taste than health concerns. Precision also, falls into the same category. Any health concern may lay with the type of plastic housing and tubing used in different models. Great elements are found in the high end vaporizers. Choose ceramic ones in the midrange price point.
