We recently gave you a breakdown of the most user-friendly desktop vaporizers on the market, and today we’re asking ourselves another crucial question in pursuit of the greatest desktop vaporizer – what desktop vaporizers can hold the most vapor? 

To answer this question, it’s important to keep in mind that not all desktop models are created equal in terms of what you can experiment with, and what results you can achieve. When you’re looking at desktop vapes based on their vapor capacity alone, you’re going to be dealing with models that are suitable for balloon attachments. Of all the desktop vaporizers suitable for balloon attachments, our favorites – and the most popular sellers on our site- are the Arizer Extreme Q, and the legendary Storz & Bickel Volcano. Balloon attachments are a really effective way to vape in a larger group or at a party, namely for two reasons; One, they can hold a lot more vapor without you having to constantly refill the bowl. Two, they’re a hell of a lot of fun.  

Arizer Extreme Q 

The Arizer Extreme Q is a great desktop vaporizer choice if you’re trying to blaze on a budget. It produces smooth, tasty vapor in a great compact tabletop device. Balloons for the Extreme Q measure in at just under 10 feet long, and 1 foot wide, which is over 280 liters of vapor.  

One downside is that when using the balloon bag attachment, you need to keep your thumb over the mouth to stop the vapor from leaking out, as there is no internal to stop leakage. This is a bit of a bummer, and makes the balloon feature a bit trickier to use – especially for less able-bodied vapers out there.  

On the upside though, the Extreme Q is a more versatile model than the Volcano since it can be used with either a balloon, whip, or mini-whip attachment - for the days where you just want to take a long leisurely session on the couch, as opposed to huffing vapor from a 10 foot bag as fast as you can while all your friends chant your name.  

Storz & Bickel Volcano 

Quite simply put, the Volcano desktop vaporizer is the daddy of all desktop vapes. Produced by German vaporizer magicians Storz & Bickel, it’s widely regarded as the best vaporizer on the market - which is definitely reflected in the price. As intimidating as that price tag might be, from customer testimonies online it’s clear that both the digital and classic Volcano are well worth the money.  

Since the virtues of the Volcano have been widely documented far and wide across the community, today we’ll be focusing purely on the balloons themselves and their vapor capacity. And frankly, all there is to say on the matter is that Volcano balloons are the best balloons, period. They’re amazing quality, they don’t leak, they’re highly customizable to your own size preferences, and the internal valves prevent leakage while holding your vapor for up to a whopping eight hours. You’re also not left with a funky taste in your mouth after using them, like you get with some other balloons made with lower quality materials. It’s no wonder why Volcano balloons are so infamous across the community, with many people using them with other vaporizers to produce great results.  

You can buy boxes of replacement balloon material in rolls of three meters, which you can cut and customize to any length you want. But why follow the rules when instead you can create one giant balloon that towers at 10 feet tall, like these cyber entrepreneurs:

Or, go even further and create a beautiful franken-bag 30-foot monster (we’re not even entirely sure how they did this)

Before you consider this please, ask yourself – how much vapor can one individual physically handle from a 10-30 foot balloon? And with the 8 hours of vapor life you get from the bag, that’s a lot for just one person. So, we at Namaste Canada would highly recommend you invite some friends round if you’re going to try and tackle a giant balloon full of vapor - if not for assistance, then at least so someone can document it for our viewing pleasure.
