When it comes to choosing a vaporizer, there are really only two types: conduction and convection.
Conduction is the transfer of heat between two objects in direct contact. Heating by conduction is easier to do and, naturally, comes at a lower price tag. Vaporizers like the Magic-Flight Launch Box and the DaVinci rely on conduction.
On the other hand, vaporizers like the Volcano and the Arizer Extreme Q rely on convection. These devices are more complex, since heat is transferred via air particles instead. And while more expensive, convection vaporizers have a few advantages of their own. Check out the infographic below to learn more:
