Part I in our series on the components of a personal vaporizer.
There are several different components to a portable personal vaporizer. To best understand how they work together, it’s important to know what each piece does, what materials are used to make it work, and how it interacts with the other parts. Today we’ll be looking at the piece that most of us interact with first; The heating chamber.
The heating chamber is a rough analog to the “tank” in a liquid vape mod or pen, and it is sometimes called by that name. The big difference is that a traditional e-cig tank does not get heated up at all. You’ll also see it referred to as a vaporizer oven, or simply as the chamber. It has a seemingly simple function: hold your herbs so they can be heated properly and safely. There is a surprising amount of complexity that goes into creating the ideal environment for it to perform that function.
The first consideration is the material that oven is made from. There are only so many different approaches because it has to be something relatively non-reactive, sturdy, and heat-resistant. They can be found made glass, stainless steel, ceramic, quartz, and even plastic. Each type of chamber has advantages and disadvantages to it. Let’s quickly review:
The next consideration will be size; It matters. The oven chamber will function most efficiently if it’s properly filled with dry plant material. That means that you’ll want to think about how you plan on using it. If you’re mostly using your personal vaporizer alone or with one other person, you’ll want a smaller chamber to maximize battery life and heat the herbs quickly and evenly. If you’re considering a portable vaporizer more suitable to use mostly in groups, you’ll definitely want a larger chamber so you’re not constantly refilling it.
The final consideration when thinking about the chamber of your next pocket sized portable vaporizer is how it interacts with the rest of the components. There are some design elements that are really very much up to the manufacturer, but it’s also important for the consumer to consider several points. Is it going to be easy to fill and then clean? Does the way it interacts with the heating coils seem efficient? Is it snugly fitted within the casing and well insulated from my hands?
So now you know a little more about the chamber on your personal vaporizer, you’re ready to get some information on the other pieces that come together to make modern vaping possible. The Battery and Atomizers
