Conduction Vapes V Convection Vapes, Which Is The Best?

There are two kinds of vaporizers ruling the lush and abundant pastures of the vaporizing world- conduction and convection. Conduction was the method which blazed a trail across the vaporizing landscape for decades. A pioneer of a method which set the standard for vaporizing excellence.

But with advent of convection technology we have a new type of heating method which is taking the vaporizer world by storm. Convection is rapidly becoming the essential way for vaping enthusiasts to vape their precious herbs.

Convection technology seems to have lit a fire that wont be put out for many a generation. But like everything in life there's a fine line between success and disaster and both methods have their own pros and cons. Depending on the circumstances both conduction and convection can lead to combustion, and other problems, and in this blog I will attempt to educate you minions on what's what.

Conduction Vaporization

Conduction is the method which the vast majority of vape pens use. What happens in this method is that your herbs are situated directly on top of a heating element or coil and when this element comes into contact with your materials they're vaporized.

One of the negatives when it comes to this method is that you can only vape the materials directly on top of the coil. Another negative about his method is that your herbs can be heated unevenly and this may lead to a very inconsistent vaping experience.

This method can also be very prone to combustion issues and this most certainly will be something that you'll want to avoid. There is nothing worse than wasted herb, and so, you'll want to avoid combustion like the plague.

Pax 3

The Pax 3 is one of the best conduction vaporizers on the planet. What separates the Pax 3 from the rest of the riff raff is that this machine has a consistency of draw that will leave you gobsmacked. And not only does this little beauty give you consistency it gives you an ability to vaporize multiple materials with an equal level of efficiency.

Another massive plus in favor of the Pax is that it seems to avoid many of the combustion issues that would be more commonly associated with many of the cheaper conduction vapes out there. If you're looking for a top quality vape well then you cant look further than the Pax3- truly a king amongst the vaping world.

The Black Mamba Vaporizer

Just like its namesake, the Black Mamba Snake, this vaporizer packs a considerable amount of venom, but in a good way! The Black Mamba is a small conduction vaporizer that has the capacity to hit the spot time and time again. The device is super portable and you could easily slip it into your pocket or take it anywhere else with you.

For the price range that it offers the Black Mamba is one of the gems of the vaporizing world delivering consistently powerful hits. When it comes to high quality conduction vaporizers, and at a good price range, the Black Mamba is one of the machines that stands out.


Convection is the type of technology that is incorporated into most desktops and portables. There are two types of convection vaporizers- fan assisted, and inhalation vortex. Fan assisted convection is where hot air blows into your herbs and this results in a delicious vapor travelling down a mouthpiece.

Both methods are very consistent and should produce some very consistent and mouth-watering draws. Many people feel that convection is the superior method, and in my opinion it is, as the vapes that you'll receive will have that little bit of extra magic.

The Mighty Vaporizer

The Mighty Vaporizer by the legendary Storz and Bickel is one of the best portable vaporizers on planet earth. What really makes the Mighty stand out from the crowd is that it utilizes both conduction and convection technology. Yes, you read that right, the Mighty has both conduction and convection!

How this machine operates is that it uses conduction to heat your herbs and then when you take a draw it utilizes convection. The Mighty Vaporizer will be sure to provide you with the total vaping experience of your dreams.

The Firefly 2

An outstanding convection vaporizer is the Firefly 2. This is one of the most alluring vapes you can get your hands. The device provides an irresistible and complete vaping experience. The vaporizer itself is very neat and handy and packs some serious power when it comes to delivering vaping bliss right into your DNA.

The machine is designed in a striking array of colors including, red, gray, and black which makes it stand out from the crowd. The Firefly utilizes the very best convection technology that the world has to offer. If you want to get your hands on a top vaporizer you can't go too far wrong with the Firefly 2. 


Both conduction and convection technologies have their moments and both can offer users some truly marvelous vaping moments. Conduction was the method which led the way for a many a year- flying the flag for the vaping fraternity throughout the globe. But then came convection which took the vaping industry to the next level.

No longer had users to contend with nasty combustion issues on a regular basis- this has become like a thing of the past. And whilst convection is the superior method combustion has its moments too. The moment when everything really changed was when both methods were combined into one. Whoever came up with this fantastic idea we salute you!

Whilst conduction on its own can lead to certain issues, the fact that many vapes are now utilizing both conduction and convection is a
