First you should determine the amount of money you’d like to spend (especially in this turbulent economic climate). Think of your vaporizer as an investment, not an expense. Vaporizer prices can range between $50 to $700. Setting your price limit will facilitate the selection of other options with a product that fits your budget. The average vaporizer cost is around $200-$250 with plenty of high-quality options available.

See the chart below for price ranges and examples:


Next you should decide where and how you will use the vaporizer. If portability is not required and you intend to vaporize at home, several options exist with standard 120V plugs used in your electrical socket. If you prefer something portable, you may want to research battery-operated and butane‑fueled products rather than something that requires an electrical socket. Some great portable options are listed below:

Often times, home units are easier for first-time users. Home units use electricity which eliminates the need for outside heat sources or fuel and frequently have shorter learning curves.

Digital vaporizers can be useful as they provide an exact reading of your temperature setting—a very important feature when vaporizing different types of blends. However, it is also important not to be seduced by flashy buttons, lights and switches. Standard vaporizers are just as functional as digital varieties, and can be easier to repair if tragedy strikes and your vaporizer fails. In addition, digital units usually have shorter warranties as more technology can lead to more repair issues.


If you’ve decided on a plug-in vaporizer for use at home, there are two basic categories with which to choose from:

  • Bag-fill system Vaporizers
  • Direct vaporization Vaporirzers

Many vaporizers are fan-driven, which heat the material with hot air, using a pump or fan to extract the vapor. It is then released into a bag or handkit (also known as a whip), from which the user can inhale the vapor.

All bag-fill systems are fan-driven. This requires no effort as the fan regulates the flow of vapor as well as the temperature. Basically, the machine does all the work. These units work very well, but they are higher in price.

The other delivery system is direct vaporization, which uses no fan or bag. Using your lungs takes more effort to draw from the handkit, but the vapor is pure and more concentrated than a bag-fill system since the vapor is going directly into your lungs rather than collecting in a bag and becoming diluted with oxygen before you inhale it. You will enjoy a more robust, potent and pure vapor with no leakage from a bag. Direct vaporization is a durable, practical and economical option.
