Smoking of cigarettes and cannabis started even before modern technology was born and it is still practiced among many today despite the fact that the users are aware that the federal ministry of health warns that smoking is dangerous to the health and might even lead to the death of the user. The earliest countries to start smoking of cigarettes are Mexico and North America. The rise of technology gave birth to the invention and design of modern devices like vape pen and portable vaporizers which reduces the risk and damages that can be caused by smoking.
The vape pen and the portable vaporizer might be design for the same purpose but they still have their differences. Before we talk about the difference between vape pen and portable vaporizers, it will be better to first discuss about a vape pen. The vape pen is a device that converts cannabis oil into air bourn droplet or vapor. It achieves that by heating it up to a temperature of 300 to 450 degrees which is below the temperature of combustion, which protects it from direct burning. Note that direct burning allows it to produce dangerous toxin which is harmful to the the human health. The vape pen consist of parts like the tank or cartridge, the atomizer, the sensor and the battery. The tank is the part that holds the cannabis oil. It can be usually refilled. The ones that cannot be refilled are called the cartridge and they cannot be used twice, they are mostly designed for single use. Tanks are mostly made of polycarbonate plastics, though some of them are made of stainless steel. The atomizer is the element that generates heat in the vape pen, it converts liquid to tiny air bourn droplets. The sensor makes the vape pen to turn on automatically whenever the user inhales through it. Not all vape pen turns on automatically, some of them uses push button, which is located on the vape pen. Vape pens that uses push buttons also require the use of a sensor to determine when the user is actually inhaling it. The battery provides the power which allow the heater to heat up to about 400 degrees. Just like the battery of a phone is being charged, the battery of a vape pen is also charged. The vape pen and the portable vaporizer are similar in many ways but that doesn’t make them the same.
The portable vaporizer also used for smoking and also help in preventing the harm that can be caused by smoking, so you may want to wonder what differentiates a vape pen from a portable vaporizer. The difference is that vape pens are mainly used for oils, when used with dry leaves the heating element may make contact with the leaves causing it to burn instead of vaporizing it. When dry herb is been used on a vape pen, it will cause combustion. Portable vaporizers actually vaporizes dry leaves while vape pen do not. This is the main difference between vape pen and portable vaporizer.
