The summer sun is here and many people want to break free from the stygian shadows of their offices and stride out into the wilderness to enjoy the majesty of nature in the sun. Of course all across the New Zealand vaporizer aficionados will want to do the same, but they may want to bring a vape along so they can enjoy their greenery while enjoying the greenery of nature!
Obviously the first port of call when selecting a vaporizer for outdoor use is to look at portable vaporizers. Portable vaporizers are the more compact and portable (hence the name) version of desktop vaporizers. Where desktop vaporizers require a plug socket to work a portable vape can work entirely with battery power. They also use lighter components to make sure they’re small enough to pop in your pocket!
There are several things you want to consider when you’re picking out a portable vape for use when you’re out in the great outdoors.
Of course your battery is important, a decent life of around 3 hours of continuous use should see out any day hikes. For longer sojourns you’re going to want to have a swappable battery, allowing you to carry spares to extend your battery life even further!.
If you’re out on a hike and every second counts because you’re on a schedule you want a vape that heats up quickly. Conduction is the best heating technique in this case, it has the fastest heat up time of all the heating techniques. This is because it puts the heating element in direct contact with the heating element. However if you are out for more of a leisurely ramble then maybe a convection vaporizer will suit you. Convection is slower than conduction because it has to slowly generate hot air to flow across your herb and generate vapor. This tends to be thicker and of higher quality than the vapor from a conduction vape.
Even if you’re deep in the woods, you want to make sure that your vaporizer is subtle and understated. You’re just trying to enjoy your herb in the great outdoors. You also want to make sure that it doesn’t leave a lingering smell too!
