Why a Cheap Vaporizer Isn’t Worth the Money

cheap vaporizer 7th floor vapes

You’ve undoubtedly heard the phrase that, “you get what you paid for.” And unless you’re a professional cat burglar who is getting what someone else paid for, this phrase usually holds true … even in the world of vaporizers. With the public perception changing for good, and with companies exploding onto the marketplace, competition for your vaporizer dollars has never been stiffer.

Unfortunately, many new or first-time vape owners get duped by slick advertising and sub-par construction. A cheap vaporizer can lead to poor performance, dissatisfying vape experiences, and even mechanical problems like overheating and battery leakage.

The fact of the matter is … that just like you can’t build a Dodge Charger on a lawnmower budget, you just can’t make a quality vaporizer with poorly-constructed parts. If you’re opting for a cheap vaporizer to save some money, it may end up costing you more in the long-run. Here’s why:

Temperature Control

As you may have read in some of our other blog posts, every vaporizing material has its own ideal vaporization temperature. And while vaporizers like our Silver Surfer have an adjustable temperature knob for precise control over the heat in the chamber, a cheap vaporizer may skip on this feature and just run at a single temperature.

The problem? You may burn through your stash much more quickly than you needed to. Overheating or under-heating the material in the chamber can mean that you’re missing out on some of the benefits of the vapor. This means it could take much more of the plant material than normal to achieve your desired effects. Even if you got a smokin’ good deal (pun intended) on a vape, if you’re losing dollars in vape material, you’re no better off than when you started.

Cheap Vaporizer vs. Quality Construction

Your vaporizer’s overall construction plays a vital role in its ability to produce vapor and provide a comfortable, safe experience. And in our world, it’s all about the vapor path – um, the path that the vapor takes. We probably didn’t need to explain that.

Our SideKick portable vaporizer, for instance, boasts one of the most innovative vapor paths in the world. Not only does our SideKick come with a hand-blown glass mouthpiece that connects into the unit to extend the vapor path as it comes to your lips, it also includes our unique Vortex Vapor system. This spiral-shaped insert can be removed from your SideKick, cooled in your fridge or freezer, and replaced back in to the unit. Then, as vapor passes through it, not only is the distance the vapor travels increased, it also cools to the touch. This means a smooth, pure, clean vape that’s full of flavor.

While it all comes down to personal preference, a cheap vaporizer can lead to a harsh or even unpleasant vape. If you don’t enjoy it, you won’t use it. And that’s just money down the drain. It’s true that all vaporizers have their upsides and downsides, but be sure to do some research as to which vaporizer is best for you and your lifestyle. This blog post is a great place to start.

Versatility in a vaporizer is also a key point to consider. As your tastes change and evolve, it’s important that your vaporizer grows with you. A good general rule of thumb is that it’s better to have additional features in your vape and not need them, than it is to need additional features in your vape and not have them.

Reputable Companies

As we mentioned above, vaporizing is becoming more and more popular as we delve deeper into the 21st Century. As you shop for a vape, be sure you choose a manufacturer who stands by their product with support and warranties against defects in workmanship. Good or bad, a company earns its reputation. Even if it means saving for an extra few weeks before pulling the trigger on a new vape, the wait will be worth it.

    I have a $150 vape that is the best vape I have. I also have a surfer and a sidekick. Expensive does not mean the best.
