DESKTOP VAPORIZERS – Perfect for Home.

Desktop Vaporizers are connected through a power outlet and when it comes to quality vapor the Desktop is king.

Desktop Vaporizers utilize a:


Whip-Style Vaporizers allow the user to inhale vapor through vinyl or silicone tubing by pulling hot air over the material from the heat source.

Some Examples are:

Da Buddha Vaporizer

Volcano Plenty Vaporizer




Forced-Air Vaporizers utilize an internal fan that propels hot air over your material, thereby creating a steady stream of vapor that is typically collected in a balloon bag that you then draw from.

Some Examples are:

Volcano Classic or Digital Vaporizer




Dual or Multi-purpose Vaporizers are Whip and Balloon Capable and provide the user with two options. You can inhale the vapor through the simplified whip-system or with the advanced forced-air system. Most Desktop Vaporizers are one or the other, however some models like for example “The Arizer Extreme Q” are capable of both.

Some Examples are:

Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer

Vapir Vapirise Vaporizer


PORTABLE VAPORIZERS - Perfect for on the move.

Portable Vaporizers are exactly what it says — portable. These are small, compact and lightweight Vaporizers are made for vapor enthusiasts on the move. Portable Vaporizers can be used almost anywhere and are very simple to operate. These units require absolutely no cords or wires and either butane, flame or battery powered. If you're looking to vape on the go, a portable Vaporizer is your best option. Other considerations are do you need it small enough to fit in your pocket or are you happy to keep it in a bag to travel with?




Battery Powered Vaporizers provide a reliable and efficient power source because they provide a consistent flow of energy to the device. They are however slower to ready themselves for use (heating up) but with these you don’t have to worry about inhaling any butane fumes.

Some Examples are:

Arizer Air Vaporizer

Magic Flight Launch box Vaporizer

Firefly Vaporizer



Butane-Powered Vaporizers are great for people on the go that don’t want to be tied down to a power outlet, for example if you go camping regularly and don’t have the option of charging a battery.

Some Examples are:

Iolite 2.0 Vaporizer

Iolite Wispr 2 Vaporizer



Flame/Lighter Powered Vaporizers are very convenient and allow for a quick heat-up time. No cords or wires of any kind, and once again ideal for a regular camper.

Some Examples are:

Vapman Classic Vaporizer

Nimbinvap Vaporizer




Vaporizers are capable of vaporizing your favourite Herbs. A Grinder is recommended for the making the best out of your blends. This helps to give your blend an even vaporization and helps to give a more flavoursome vapour.



Oil/Wax Vaporizers are intended for all types of oil, wax or other concentrate. Some of these Vaporizers feature a cartridge system whereas others utilize an oil dish/bowl.



Dual Compatibility or Hybrid Vaporizers allow you to efficiently vaporize any type of dry blend, oil, wax or other concentrate.

Some Examples are:

Haze V2.5 Vaporizer

DaVinci Ascent Vaporizer

another Thing to take into consideration is whether the Vaporizer is a Convection or a Conduction Unit. More information can be found on this subject here - A Quick Guide to Convection & Conduction
