Posted on Jul 05, 2016

Buying a Vaporizer in 2016?

At this stage, the majority of us are more than aware of the potential health risks that comes with smoking and the long term affects it poses to our health. With more and more people each day striving to improve their quality of life and health, the popularity of vaporizers of all types, from pens to desktops to portables, has exploded in recent years. With Portable Vaporizers becoming increasingly popular, especially among those users who have a preference to vaping dry herb.
Check out our wide range of Portable Herbal Vaporizers right here!
So, lets get down to business. Choosing a vaporizer can be tricky, especially with the wide range available these days. Without some proper research you will only end up with a vaporizer which is wrong for you or does not suit any of your vaping needs, whilst also burning a hole in your pocket. Similarly, choosing a vaporizer based solely on its price, doesn’t always mean that you are getting your moneys worth. So, how do you find the vaporizer for you? We here at NamasteVapes are looking out for you lovely people so we have carefully researched our most popular vaporizers and organised them in accordance to their budget. 
Click one to go see the top rated vaporizers reviewed in that category. If you're not sure, keep on scrolling to learn more about each type.

Below are the 3 main categories of vaporizers:

  • Vaporizer Pens - Best suited for e-juices/waxes/concentrates etc. Vape Pens are generally small, subtle and discreet. Vape Pens are not good for dry herb use. Generally vape pens are inexpensive in comparison to other vaporizers. 
  • Portable Vaporizers - Portable vapes are best suited for vaping dry herbs. A lot of vapes have dual vaping abilities these days (dry herb and concentrates/waxes etc) Portable vapes are generally small and subtle enough to carry with you.
  • Desktop Vaporizers - These vaporizers are for the vaping connoisseurs out there. Desktop vapes are more of a home appliance as they are not particularly portable or discreet. These are powerful devices which are great for using with friends.  


What's Your Vaping Budget?

Vaporizers for £100 and under 

If you have a budget that is £100 or below for a vaporizer, then you will be pleasantly surprised that you have more of a choice than you probably would have first thought. 

If vaporizing oil/wax/liquid concentrate is what you are after, then the options available to you are endless. Check out our full list of Vaporizer Pens that we have available! The majority of vape pens fall into this pricing structure anyway. One or two vaporizer pens are compatible with vaporizing dry herb, but generally they are not. If vaporizing dry herb is what you are looking for in a vaporizer, then we would recommend having a better look at the Best Portable Vaporizers from NamasteVapes.

The Magic Flight uses alkaline batteries for a truly spectacular vaporizing experience. Its small, slick and subtle.

Vaporizers for £200 and under 

It seems that in todays market, the majority of high-end portable vaporizers fall into the above £200 price range, however there are a few quality buys available here. We would recommend anyone shopping on this budget to consider at least viewing the products in other price ranges as the selection of products is quite vast. However, if you have your head set on not going over £200, then we have still got quite the selection of amazing vapes for you to choose from!

The Haze Dual V3 Vaporizer is one of the most popular vapes in this price range. The Haze V3 really does cover all of your potential vaping needs!

This allows users to continue vaporizing multiple materials, like loose leaves, wax and oils, all of this without even having to swap cartridges. Also rocking in at this price range is the ever present Pax 2 by Ploom. Listen, we could sit here all day talking about how fantastic this vaporizer is, but more than likely you've heard it all before. Voted as the most popular Vaporizer of 2016 so far, what more do you need to know?

The last vaporizer we are going to be discussing within this price range is the newly released Grizzly Guru Vaporizer.

What materials Will You Be Vaping?

The Vaporizer scene has changed significantly since the continued development of concentrates in wax and oil form. Vaporizer pens have stormed the scene in force and have established themselves as the go-to vaporizer for any user who prefers to vape concentrates. However we can also see that classic dry herb vaporizers have grown as well with vaping technology improving day by day. It's so simple to pick up a premium dry herb vaporizer for approximately £200, and gone are the days of it being a big bulky unit, it's subtle and discreet enough that users can put it in their pocket and vape on the go. 

The Vape scene has changed so much recently, so before you begin shopping for that new vape, decide what kind of materials you will be using the majority of the time.

Wax Concentrate

Many users would prefer wax concentrate to dry herb, and this can be quite beneficial to the user. Quality wax vaporizers are generally sold for much cheaper than standard herbal vaporizers.  We would recommend checking out any of our selection of Pen Vaporizers here. Also, just to be aware, that there are a significant portion of portable vaporizers that can cover all bases with regards to waxes/concentrates/herbs i.e. The Haze Dual V3 and the Grizzly Guru Vape. 

Oil Concentrate

Electronic cigarettes massivley affected the ciggarette and smoking industry when they were first introduced.  This E-Cig technology has also hugely impacted the vaping scene as now medical patients can use this same technology, which was introduced by e-cigarettes, in order to vaporize their medicine which comes in liquid form. The nicotine-laced e-liquid was simply replaced with administrated medicinal oil, and this now allows vapers to use e-cigarette technology in oder to discreetly access your materials. 

Dry Herb

This is still the most popular form of vaporization, dry herb remains an old favourite of the vaping community. The simplicity of the method is the reason for its popularity, simple vaporizing your materials is so much easier than going out and purchasing your materials and then having to pay someone to extract the oil or concentrate levels.
