Convection vs. Conduction: Which Vaporizer Is Right For Me


Let’s define these two distinct varieties of popular vaporizers. 


A Conduction Vaporizer means the heating element has direct contact with the herb. A great example of this is the Pax Vaporizer. While these vaporizers can be great when digitally controlled, the physical contact between the heat source and the herb means that you can expect splotchy exposure. These vaporizers require you to open the chamber and reposition the herb in order to achieve an even burn.


A Convection Vaporizer means the heating element does not come in direct contact with the herb; instead, the hot element heats the surrounding air which coerces the active ingredients into a vapor cloud. A convection vaporizer gets closer to guaranteeing uniform heat exposure to all of the herb packed into the chamber; this results in clean, flavorful vapor!


Vapir Vaporizers combine both Conduction and Convection-style heating elements to deliver an unprecedented vapor experience! In the VapirRise2.0 Ultimate and the NO2.V2, the herb is contained within a metal chamber; since this chamber gets immersed in hot air, the chamber itself become a conductor for heat while the passing air fills the internal space. This combination results in a vapor cloud that is dense, flavorful, and 100% non irritating!


If you’re looking to save money, consider conduction. If you require a more precise instrument, go with convection: but, if you seek the ultimate vaporizer experience, choose a model that combines conduction and convection heat: this is something that all Vapir products accomplish – and this is one of the reasons why we call them Elite Vaporizers!
