Conduction vs. Convection Vaporizer - Which One to Choose?


If you haven't heard about convection vaporizers, you're probably living under a rock. It's the new technology that has become the best alternative to smoking and has helped billions get rid of smoking. There are two types of vaporizing processes used by vaporizers, including convection, conduction, and full convection.

It is very important to know the difference between these three types of methods and to know the truth. Knowing the truth will save you from the myths about convection vaporizers. This article will talk about both the types and their differences.

What are conduction vaporizers?

Conduction vaporizers are also known as oven-based vaporizers and are widely available in the market. In such vaporizers, the herb is in direct contact with the heating element of the device and is in contact with the herb. This makes the herb get heated directly, which gives solid and large draws.

Conduction vaporizers are easy to manufacture and design, which makes them comparatively cheaper than convection vaporizers. In order to use the conduction vaporizers, you should know the vaporizer basics. When using a conduction vaporizer, you have to constantly stir while using because the herb is in direct contact with the heating surface. If the herb stays in contact with the hot surface for too long, it will get burned, and the hit will be very hard and may damage your throat. Also, it won't taste very pleasing.

What are convection vaporizers?

This process is completely different from conduction. In a convection vaporizer, the material does not undergo vaporization unless hot air is moved over it that takes all the active ingredients away. The herbs do not come in contact with the heating surface in these types of vaporizers. This is why the hot air moves slowly and more gently through the flower or oil. This enhances the aroma of the herbs and prevents combustion.

Convection vaporizers typically take longer to heat up than conduction vaporizers because the herb is not in direct contact with the heating surface. It is also inhaled in a much different way. You should go for long and slow draws in order to enjoy vaping.

Debunking the myth about full convection

The majority of the vapes are not of the full convection type. This is because conduction vaporizers are way easier to manufacture. They are not complex in terms of technology and are simply an oven that heats up the herb for you to inhale. On the other hand, convection uses a lot of battery power.

When you inhale from the vaporizer, the air surrounding your herb cools down. Then the convection vaporizer has to reheat the air, which uses up more battery. A perfect convection vaporizer, therefore, is very expensive.

A large sum of vaporizers is of the convection type because they adopt the convection heating method that heats up the air that passes through the material. But in some vapes, the chamber also gets warm, which makes the output occur through the process of conduction. The only way you can determine whether the vaporizer uses convection or conduction is by the fact that the herb is in contact with the heating element or not.

In a nutshell

Both convection and conduction vaporizers are available in the market, each having its own advantages and disadvantages. If the herb inside the vaporizer is in contact with the heating surface, then it is of the conduction variety, and if not, then it is of the convection variety.
