Battery or Butane?
Battery-wise, you have a few different options to choose from. Butane is the best option for you if you prefer individual hits to serious sessions, and with a bit of technique required, it can be slightly harder to share around a group. You will also have to replace the butane on occasion, but don't let this dissuade you! If you are someone who wants to unwind with a few hits, not a whole bowl, then this is the choice to go for. Battery based is easier if you are someone who likes being outdoors or with friends. A simple charging port, getting a battery powered vaporizer ready to go is as easy as charging your phone in the morning! Most portable vaporizers come with a spare battery nowadays so don't worry about being caught outdoors without charge in the tank, you will be ready to go in seconds.
Putting Pens over Papers
Pen vaporizers are the way to go if you prefer using waxes or essential oils, they tend to lean towards concentrates rather than dry herb. If you are someone who has used an e-cig or similar before, you'll understand how there work! Simply drop your substance within and watch as they turn into smooth vapor. They work by using a heating coil powered by either a rechargeable or replaceable battery. Pen vaporizers are very handy if you are looking for a discreet portable vaporizer, as they have the same appearance as e-cigs. They are also very budget friendly, and many can be customized to your heart's content as the appearance is so similar across the market.
