A popular alternative to smoking cigarettes today is the use of e-cigarettes. This new electric device allows the user to enjoy smoking without suffering from negative health effects. The e-cigarette even looks like a real cigarette, giving users the feeling that they are indeed smoking cigarettes. However, instead of inhaling smoke, users inhale a vaporized mist similar to that produced by vaporizers.
The e-cigarette works with heat in order to vaporize a glycerin or propylene glycol-based solution that turns into a mist of aerosol, much like what a humidifier or a nebulizer does. This device consists of three major parts: the cartridge or mouthpiece, an atomizer or the heating element, and the battery with an electronic logic board included.
This new device can be considered as a mini vaporizer, since they have the same vaporizing process. However, traditional vaporizer users are not encouraged to use this as an alternative to regular vaporizers, since these e-cigarettes are especially made for tobacco. Some dried herbs that vaporizer users normally take as medications may not be suitable for use with e-cigarettes.
If you want a vaporizer that you can keep in your pocket, consider a portable herbal vaporizer instead. The main advantage of this vaporizer is its small size, which makes it possible for people to inhale the vapor of dried herbs whenever and wherever they want. This provides great convenience for many vaporizer users.
A portable herbal vaporizer may also be operated manually, since there is not enough room for a digital interface in a portable vaporizer model. Its best to be careful when it comes to operating the vaporizers functions, to avoid problems such as burns and defective temperature readings. This type of vaporizer may also need cleaning after every use. A portable vaporizer typically has a smaller filter, which is more easily clogged with dried herb particles.
The e-cigarette revolutionized the smoking habits of many people today. However, the device may not be as useful as a vaporizer when it comes to heating dried herbs. For purposes of inhaling the oil vapor of dried herbs, a portable herbal vaporizer is more ideal for use.
