Home vaporizers are usually in a desktop form as they do not have to be portable. Desktop vapes come in many shapes and sizes. They also have many different features.

Let’s look at some important features that will help you choose the right weed vaporizer to suit your needs.

  • Bowl size (quantity of substance)
  • Type of substance (dry herbs or oils)
  • Heat-up time
  • Temperature range
  • Power source (AC or batteries)
  • Heating method
  • Construction material used
  • Ease of cleaning
  • Additional features (digital screen, mouthpiece type, etc)
