Popular Vaporizers Facing New Competition

The Volcano Vaporizer is still considered one of the best and the top rated vaporizers. It has held this position over the last several years despite competition from other models.

This is due largely to the Volcano vaporizer’s performance and the quality of vapor that it produces. The Volcano is known for excellent performance and dense, flavorful vapor. It heats the aromatic herb elements precisely to prevent combustion, which results in a pure, effective, and flavorful vapor. The Volcano vaporizer has also received prestigious award of Rudolf Eberie for innovation in 2003. It also comes in two models: Classic and Digital, which both carry a 3 years manufactures warranty.

New models from other manufacturers now offer many of the same features and in some cases have even improved upon the Volcano’s design. The Vapir Rise and Zephyr Ion are two good examples.

The Vapir Rise is smaller than the Volcano, uses a digital temperature control, and comes with a whip in addition to bag functionality. The Vapir Rise vaporizer also comes with a 4 person direct draw adapter for easy use by groups and an adjustable fan, which are two features lacking in the Volcano.

The Zephyr Ion’s ease of use is where it really stands out. With flip top design that allows for one handed operation and a well-designed, push button valve, the Ion is the most convenient vaporizer in terms of use that we have tried to date.

On the portable vaporizer front, Pen Vaporizers are getting very popular and are beginning to provide competition to tabletop models. Over the last few years, pen vaporizers have becoming very popular among consumers as the popularity of E-Cigarettes has shed light on their pen vaporizer cousins. These vaporizers are just very small in size, hence the name pen vaporizers. And they are easy to use, one just fills the pen vaporizer with aromatic plant materials or essential oils (depending on the model) and they are quickly heated to the desired temperature. Pen vaporizers are user friendly, very light in weight and small in size so there is no question about portability They are also very discreet and can be used with essential oils too. Most pen vaporizers run on high-performance Lithium-ion batteries.

We cannot conclude that only the table top vaporizers i.e. Volcano or Zephyr or Vapir are popular and the rest are not. All the vaporizers are popular and reliable on their own way. People who like to vape have a lot of options to pick from the Volcano Vaporizer to pen vaporizers or the Zephyr Ion or Vapir Rise.

While table top vaporizers are clearly facing competition from Pen/Portable vaporizers, they still have a place because of their ease of use and their efficiency. The number of good table top vaporizers has expanded with new technology, so there are a lot of good options to choose from

    hey, great gift idea! the Volcano is a bit expensive, but I do belviee it’s worth it I’ve reviewed 10 vaporizers so far and it definitely comes out on top. However, there are some other good ones I also like that are less money. I really like the Plenty vape ($349) for its amazing vapor production, and I also like the Launch Box ($119). I think the Solo vape is pretty good too ($229). I have review videos for all of these with more info, hope this helps!
