There are ton of choices in today’s vape world when it comes to vape pens. There is just so much out there to choose from that it can be confusing as far as what to buy. Also, there are a ton of cheap vaporizer pens that perform well, while others leave a lot to be desired. For many people, this can be a bit frustrating and a bit challenging. Shopping around for a vape pen that works should not be so difficult. Luckily, we’ve put together a quick, easy to follow guide on what type of pen works best for you.
The best vape pens are not the necessarily the ones that look cooler, but the ones that perform better and are made out of the best materials possible. One of the main issues that we’ve come across when it comes to vape pens is that many times you’re not getting a full vaporization, but rather a mix of combustion (burning) and vapor. Other aspects to look out for include the quality of materials which essentially determine how clean your vapor will be. Many of the complaints with today’s vaporizers is that the vapor that these vaporizers produce tastes too much like plastic or metal. Lastly, size and discreetness of your vape pens should also matter. You want a vape pen that is actually to carry in your front pocket, or that it won’t draw to much attention to yourself.
Concentrates, Herb or Oil?
Are you looking to vape herbs? Or are you looking to do potent concentrates? How about some hash oil? There are pens out there for either one of these materials. We recommend concentrate and oil pens over herb pens. The reason for this is, herb pens tend to not be as effective at vaporizing as concentrates or oils. Because of the nature of the materials, herb pens tend to burn herbs rather than vaporize them. Manufacturers have yet to catch up and find ways to make better vaporizer pens for herbs.
Discreetness / Compact
Today’s pens are increasingly becoming much more compact and much more discreet. Manufacturers have found ways to make these pens much more smaller and compact than in years past. This is particularly good because it offers users the option of getting pens that they can easily take on the road and easily fit in any pocket or compartment.
