What are Butane Vaporizers and How are They Different

Posted by CSR Team on

What is a Butane Vaporizer?

A butane vaporizer is powered by butane liquid rather than relying on battery power. As long as your butane is plentiful you will have a functioning vape. 

Why Butane?

The butane vaporizer fulfills a need that more-typical modern electrical models can’t fill. No matter how long the battery lasts, they all rely on electricity. Eventually you'll need to plug it in again. Going for the model with Bluetooth apps and fancy LED displays is often a great choice. But when you’re a couple of miles from the nearest source of electricity, they’re not going to do you much good.

These kinds of vapes work entirely on butane liquid which can be bought at any hardware store or smoking store and as long as you keep the supply flowing, you’ll never run out of vape power.

Butane vaporizers are a popular choice for going to a festival, camping, or any adventure where you might be away from power sources. Power is often an issue with vaporizers and even the higher-end models can barely go a day before they finally power down. Making the switch to butane is a great choice for remote journeys. Couple bottles of butane and you're good to go for any trip.

Manual Control

Butane vapes also have the luxury of being manually controlled. They have to be since they’re heated by the flame created by the butane which needs to be altered by the vaper if needs be. Manual control is often desired by those who want to add a little technique and skill to their vape sessions.

Perfecting the technique requires a bit of learning, but once people put in the time, they rarely go back. Imagine if you didn't leave your perfect vape up to a bunch of circuitry that can never get it just right, but instead relied on just yourself.

Most manufacturers make digital models so the butane market is a bit sparse. This means there’s a lot of room for a truly well-made butane model to rise up through the ranks. Already quite a few models have made a name for themselves based on their abilities and build quality alone.

Iolite Wispr 2

The Wispr 2 by Iolite is one of the most aesthetic and intelligent butane vaporizers ever built. The round squared, cross-hatch design looks beautiful and the strong plastic that makes its body incredibly durable. The look alone is enough to draw people in. Inside the Iolite Wispr 2 we’re talking about a stainless steel chamber as well as a flexible rubber for the mouthpiece and stem. Most people prefer glass in their mouthpieces, but since we’re talking about a durable, take-anywhere sort of model, plastics almost seem necessary. 

The magic of this vape isn’t just in its build but it also creates some very fine vapor. Despite not having as much control over the temperature as the other models on this small list, it still produces quite a good, dense vapor.

Coming in what seems like a strange egg shaped container, the VapMan portable is many people’s first choice vaporizer for long camping trips. Coming with its own, brand name lighter, the VapMan simply needs to be lit from the bottom before it begins to work. 

The VapMan is so simple to use once you get used to it. Just hold a light up to the metal base. The real secrets to this vape lie within the simplicity but well thought out design. There’s a bit of a learning curve to the VapMan Portable though. The trick to getting the vapor density you require is repeating a process of heating the bottom section of the vape for 2-3 seconds and inhaling to figure out if it’s right for you. 

The build materials are of exceptionally high-quality with the wood shaped to perfectly fit your grip while you vape. Thanks to an insulated mineral coating this wood material doesn’t burn during use. Everything about this unit depends on you, with the flexibility in the vapor of this vape being dependent on your skill.

The NimbinVap, now on its 4.2 edition, is a handy portable vaporizer that’s so small it fits like a small, wooden pebble in your hand. Yes, that's an analogy people use.

Well, despite its size, the NimbinVap has been hailed as an incredibly versatile, 7-in-1 vaporizer. "7-in-1?", we hear you ask incredulously? Yes, we reply emphatically. There are multiple uses for this little wooden gem. It can be a vaporizer, bong, hookah, joint holder, hitter, you name it. All this in such a small package.

In terms of vapor production, the vape performs very well. The taste isn’t exactly high-end but because of the flame assisted heating element you get a great amount of efficiency and cloud density. These thick clouds will knock you right on your backside if you’re not careful so prepare for those massive, lung filling, heady hits.

Despite the size it has a decent chamber and you'll vape your material with no problems. I’m not sure what else you could hope for from a model that doesn’t rely on electricity.
