Pros and Cons of High-Tech Vaporizers

When it comes to vaporizers, there are many different options on the market, ranging from simple and analog to high-tech and digital. In this blog post, we'll be exploring the pros and cons of high-tech vaporizers, with a focus on desktop dry herb vaporizers including the popular Volcano vaporizer compared to the simple, yet effective, Vaporbrothers box vaporizers.


One of the main advantages of high-tech vaporizers, like the Volcano, is that they control their temperature well. They're often designed as "set it and forget it" type devices, which means they don't require a lot of technique to use. All you need to do is follow the instructions, figure out how to set the temperature, and let the device do it’s thing. The superior temperature control of high-tech vaporizers ensure that the herbs will not get too hot or burn. This can be particularly helpful for elderly or medical patients who need a light mist that is easy to inhale.

High-tech vaporizers are often built with good quality materials and may be supported with replacement parts and accessories. Temperature control is precise and easy to set, which means that you can customize your experience to your liking.


One of the drawbacks of high-tech vaporizers is that they can often be overemphasized on "low temp vaping," which can result in weak and unsatisfying results. While the temperature control is precise, the beneficial components of the herbs are not always fully extracted when the temperature is held constant. This can be a significant downside for users who are looking for the full benefits of their herbs.

High-tech vaporizers can sometimes require an app to operate fully, which can cause delays in the user experience. Additionally, they're not always intuitive to use, are bulky, and awkward to load. This can make them less appealing for users who want a more straightforward and user-friendly experience.

Volcano Vaporizer

The Volcano vaporizer is a top-of-the-line product that fills a bag with pure vapor. It is built solidly inside and out, and the company has a high reputation.

One of the main advantages of the Volcano is that it is effective and easy to use. The temperature can be set precisely, and it does not drift off target. It's quite a luxury to take the bag of vapor to someone in another room; something you can't do with our desktop vaporizers.

However, the Volcano does have its drawbacks. It's air pump motor is not silent and the crinkly plastic bags can be awkward to use. Additionally, it disappoints some users by using up a lot of herbal material and giving an underwhelming feeling. Without a good supply of organic botanical blends, you might find the homogeneous tasting vapor to be ultimately unsatisfying.

Vaporbrothers Vaporizer

In contrast to the high-tech Volcano, the Original Vaporbrothers vaporizer is a simple, low-tech device that is known for its tasty and effective hits. While it may take some time to learn the breath and rhythm of vaporizing with the Original Vaporbrothers, users often report more benefits over years of use. Medical patients have reported feeling more relief when using the Original Vaporbrothers compared to more modern vaporizers.

The Vaporbrothers vaporizer is unobtrusive, intuitive, and efficient with small amounts of organic botanical blends placed in the vaporizer whip. It produces a dense, sweet tasting vapor immediately, without any of the motor or plastic noise associated with the Volcano.

The temperature can be changed across a wide range, allowing the user to decide between an expansive true-vapor experience.

Another advantage of the Original Vaporbrothers is that it does not rely on plastic or metal components, which can add an unwanted taste to the vapor. Instead, it uses natural temperature resistant materials such as ceramic and glass and a wooden housing that handles being warm without outgassing a chemical smell.

Vaporbrothers wood is Low VOC and won't contribute to the taste. We use a custom designed ceramic heating element which provides clean and flavorful vapor, as opposed to the metal heating elements on many high-tech vaporizers that cause hits that taste a bit like metal.


While high-tech vaporizers like the Volcano offer many benefits, they also have their drawbacks. Users may find that they do not provide a satisfying feeling, or that they are not intuitive to use. 

For those who prefer a simpler, low-tech vaporizer, the Original Vaporbrothers is an excellent choice. Often people get both the versatile vaporizer and the stationary workhorse. Ultimately, the choice of which vaporizer to use will depend on personal preference and individual needs.
