Debunking the convection vaporizer myth

In this article, we will first explain the difference between convection and conduction vaporizing. After that, we will debunk the convection myth once and for all.

What is a conduction (oven based) vaporizer?

Most vaporizers on the market are, in fact, oven based. In this type of vaporizer, your herbs are heated through direct contact with the hot material of the heating chamber (“oven”). This direct heating method typically gives full, dense draws. Conduction vaporizers are relatively easy to design and produce, and therefore, they’re often cheaper than full convection vapes.

Because the plant material is heated through direct contact with a hot surface, you will have to stir during your session. Heating it for too long might also run the risk of “burning” your herbs. They won’t catch fire, but the hit will be harsh on your throat and won’t taste very nice.

What is a convection vaporizer?

Convection heating works differently. A convection vape technically shouldn’t vaporize material, until hot air has been drawn over it, extracting the active components. The heating element in these devices is separated from the herbs, so the hot air that it produces seeps through the flower or the oil in a slower, gentler way. This avoids combustion and exalts the aromas of the herb.

A convection vape often takes longer to heat up than an oven based one. It also requires a slightly different inhalation technique. To get the best results, it is recommended to take longer, slower draws – you’ll be rewarded with smooth, light and delicious clouds of vapour.

The full-convection myth

Although sometimes marketed as such, most vaporizers are not full convection vapes. There are two main reasons for this:

  1. Conduction vaporizers are easier to produce. Conduction vapes don’t have to be as technologically advanced as their convection counterparts. After all, it’s basically just an oven. The oven gets hot, and when the surface reaches vaporizing temperature, it ‘bakes’ your herbs. Even if your device also uses convection heating; as soon as your plant material is heated through contact with a hot surface, it becomes conduction (or oven based) vaporisation.
  2. Convection costs a lot of power. When you draw, the air that draws through your herbs cools down. So a convection vaporizer has to fight against the air cooling down too much, which costs extra power and is quite stressful on the battery and the heating system. Taking the calculations relating to distance, heat and draw speed into account, a 100% convection vaporizer is a technologically advanced, often quite expensive device.

Many oven-based vaporizers are claimed to be convection vaporizers. Which is not entirely incorrect; many vaporizers use convection heating, by heating up the air that passes through the herbs. However, in most of these vaporizers, the chamber heats up as well, making part of the extraction happen through conduction.

The only factor that defines if you’re dealing with a conduction or convection vape, is if the plant material is in contact with a heated surface to create sublimation. If so, it is not convection.

About this product

​The FORCE is a pure convection vaporizer with patented – Convection Air Heating Technology. This means that the air is heated below the chamber and passes through your herb as you take a draw. The heat is evenly distributed throughout your herb – giving you incredible flavor and a very consistent large cloud of vapor. We would recommend the FORCE for a daily or a multi-session vaporizer that is still very portable (about the size of a deck of cards). We tested all the convection vaporizers on the market and we found nothing even close to the vapor production and quality that you get from the FORCE. The vapor production and quality of the FORCE is very similar the Crafty & Mighty. At less than 1/2 the cost – the FORCE rips huge clouds of tasty vapor! The FORCE has two heating modes: Normal: Huge clouds and amazing flavor. Force: Huge clouds and great flavor. ​ The FORCE works as well with Wax & Oil (wax & oil cup is included). ​ ​Features: 100% Pure Air Convection Heating Full Aluminum Body – powder-coated 30 Second heat-up time Isolated stainless steel air path (food grade) USB Charging Four temperature settings 338°F, 356°F, 374°F, 410°F Two heating modes – Normal and Force Wax & Oil Cup (included) LG Class A 2200 mAh Lithium Polymer battery (safety – can not explode) Provides approximately 60-70 minutes of battery use per charge Size: 4.37″ x 2.2″ x 1.1″ Very low draw resistance (easy to draw) 5 minute auto shut-off protection What’s in the Box: FORCE Vaporizer ​1 Oil & Wax Cup 1 Cleaning Brush 1 Wax Tool 2 Replacement Screens 4 Replacement 0-rings (2 big 2 small – food grade) 1 Tweezers 1 USB Charger 1 User Manual 1 Gift box Always Free Shipping! $129 – Only at HealthyRips.com

I am a Convection vaper onlt, I have tried a few different units some were Ok and some Plain Just No Good ! This is my opinion the force i have had over a year now and No Problems. I enjoy it, clouds are satisfying easy draw , flavor. I do know their service is the best they are right there if you have a problem. They stand behind their products and do not be fooled with other vaporisers that look like Healthy Rips Vaporisers . They are not.

I have been using the Force vaporizer for a couple of years now. I’ve been very satisfied with it, although I had to have the first one replaced because it went wonky after about a week. I also use a boundless CFX vaporizer which I’ve been using for about six months now. As between the two of them, I much prefer the CFX. It has a larger herb chamber. It has more precise temperature control. And it vibrates to let you know when it reaches temperature. The temperature readout can be adjusted to either Celsius or Fahrenheit, and has a range up to 220°F. It is also about $20 cheaper than the Force vaporizer. Nevertheless, they are both good vaporizers, with the Force being a little bit more compacr than the CFX. Some people like the smaller size.
