As the popularity of vaping increases, vaping manufacturers are pushing vaping technology at an increasing pace. It feels like no sooner has something new hit the market than the next technology is being released. We don’t blame you for feeling a little intimidated by new technology, including induction technology.
When conduction heating first hit the vaping market, it blew vaper’s minds. Dry herb would be placed into a chamber where direct heat would heat the dry herb, turning it into a vapor. As a result, hundreds of new conduction vaporizers hit the market, from large desktop versions to smaller pen-style vaporizers.
While these vaporizers were popular then and are still popular now, there are some drawbacks to conduction technology. The material is almost heated too much, and if heated too hot, the temperature can almost cause the material to combust. There was already a solution in the pipeline. It was then that convection vaporizers hit the market.
Convection vaporizers rely on heated air being pushed through the material rather than the material coming into direct contact with the oven or chamber. Many people prefer convection heating over conduction heating as it wastes less of the material, but could there be an even better solution? Introducing induction heating.
There aren’t a lot of induction vaporizers currently available to choose from, but it won’t be long before we start to see more hit the market. As the technology improves, we’ll see more vaporizers with induction heating technology become available.
Induction heating involves heating an electrically conducting object through the utilization of eddy currents. While it all sounds a little complicated, the important thing to remember is that the heat is generated inside the article itself, which means that there is no contact with any external heat source.
The first desktop-style vaporizer which utilizes induction style heating is the Dr. Dabber SWITCH. The team at Dr. Dabber engineered the SWITCH with an induction coil located on top of the unit, and it works with the included induction cups. The induction coil heats up the cups, which hold the dry herb material using a magnetic field.
One of the biggest issues facing induction vaporizers is the size of the induction coil and also where the induction coil is placed. To make it practical for vaporizers, it needs to be small enough to utilize but big enough so that you can fit a reasonable amount of material in it. The way the Dr. Dabber SWITCH is setup seems to be the most logical setup for a larger desktop-style vaporizer.
With the Dr. Dabber design, there’s extraordinarily little oxygen inside the cup, which means even when you’re vaping at extremely high temperatures, there’s little chance that your dry herb is going to heat up to the point of combustion. What does this mean for you? It means that you’re going to get maximum extraction of terpenes from your dry herb material while leaving all the waste material in the cup. The lack of oxygen inside the cup will prevent oxidization while giving you a smooth draw every time you fire up the vaporizer.
Another added bonus of induction heating and induction cups is that it eliminates the need to use atomizers, and if you’re not using atomizers, you’re not replacing atomizers either, which will save you some money. While you’re not paying for atomizers, you’re also saving the time and hassle of changing them. It’s a win-win situation. We’ve all been in the middle of a session with friends or relaxing at home by ourselves and dropped or broken an atomizer. There’s nothing worse! Well, with induction cups, you’ll never have to worry about that again. Induction cups make the entire process smoother and faster and if it’s one thing everyone can get on board with are fewer hassles when you’re vaping. The heat-up time is usually between five and ten seconds! It doesn’t get much faster than that.
Another popular induction vaporizer is the DynaVap Vaporizer. The DynaVap is a much smaller induction vaporizer compared to the Dr. Dabber SWITCH. If you spend a lot of time moving around and vaping in different locations, then the smaller DynaVap may be a better option for you than the larger Dr. Dabber SWITCH.
Like the SWITCH, the DynaVap also doesn’t require an atomizer of any kind. The cap of the DynaVap holds all your dry herb material and is then placed inside the induction heater. Your DynaVap dry herb vaporizer will heat up in about 10 seconds which makes it one of the fastest heating desktop-style vaporizers in the world.
We don’t have a lot of induction vaporizers to base our research off. Still, it’s fairly safe to assume that most induction vaporizers are going to follow a similar path with induction cups for holding and heating dry herb material.
The cups in both of these induction vaporizers are carefully designed to promote even surface heating. Why? So, all of your dry herb material heats simultaneously, same temperature and same speed. The smoother and more balanced the heating, the better the vaping experience will be. Induction heating delivers a smooth and consistent vaping experience every time without worrying about electrical components breaking or wearing down over time.
