Entry Level Desktop Vaporizers
The Extreme Q 4.0 by Arizer is a multipurpose vaporizer that is able to do both whips and bags. The Extreme Q has a unique feature in that it uses a remote instead of switches, which gives it a more hands free experience.
The device is pretty simple to use as you just turn the vaporizer on with the remote and choose your temperature setting. The LCD display will show that you have reached your desired temperature in 20 seconds, but for better results you should leave it for a minute after.
Once the temperature is reached, you can place your material in a glass cyclone bowl and place that into the top of the unit. Then attach the glass elbow into the whip and then place that into the cyclone bowl and you’re ready.
If you want to use the unit with a balloon then you use the tube and place that on top of the bowl and then attach the balloon to the tube. Set the fan to high and wait for the balloon to fill.
The herbalAire H2.2 by herbalAire is a small unit that has got power. You will not have to grind your material for this vaporizer which is a pro for this vape.
You will find that there are two different versions of the herbalAire. One of the units has a dial and the other features an LCD display. The dial unit is called the herbalAire H2.2 and the LCD display option is called the herbalAire Elite.
You can use both of these units with either a bag, a whip or you can choose to take draws directly from the unit. Also this unit can be directly attached to a water pipe right out of the box, whereas units need a separate attachment.
The bags of this unit need to be filled by using an external pump to it. You do get this pump with the herbalAire unit though.
The whip and the direct draw work well, but the temperatures do generally run on the hot side so it’s advisable to start with 350⁰F.
The unit is easy to use as you simply turn the dial to the temperature, load the crucible and pop in the mouthpiece. Then you just need to put in the whip or the straw for the bags and you’re ready.
