Thanks to the advent of the vaporizer, millions of herbal enthusiasts around the world are now able to enjoy their craft through a convenient and portable platform. Fortunately, the movement that radically changed the botanical industry never stops evolving. The latest advanced for the herbal community is the hybrid vaporizer -- a solution that incorporates both concentrate and dry herb enjoyment.
Hybrid vaporizers were initially designed to address the methodology compromise that individual enthusiasts were forced to make -- conduction versus convection. Under conduction vaping, herbal materials are placed in a heating chamber. The heat source then applies direct thermal energy to the botanicals. From a battery standpoint, the conduction method was more efficient. However, the direct contact risked uneven heating of the flavors.
Through convection vaping, the heating chamber is placed away from the thermal energy source. Rather than direct application, air is used to channel heat to the botanicals. This allows a much more even distribution of thermal pressure, and thereby, facilitates a pure vaping experience. The downside to the heating efficiency is that convection is battery inefficient.
But due to the advancement of hybrid vaporizers -- such as the Arizer Air Vaporizer -- these units combine the energy efficiency of conductors, and the pure vaporization of convectors; thus, no compromise is necessary. As a result, hybrid vaporizers often leverage incredible power output to be able to perform multiple tasks. Furthermore, the infrastructure of hybrid vaporizers is inherently modular, allowing for both herbal enjoyment and the use of wax concentrates.
