Wax pens differ in size with the smaller units having a smaller chamber and less powerful batteries, but these can be easy to carry around.


There are wax pens that have attachments, which you may find useful.

da buddha

Da Buddha Vaporizer Review

The Da Buddha is a desktop vaporizer from 7th Floor and is able to vaporize dry herbs.

Lets take a look at the Da Buddha vaporizer and what it can offer.da buddha vaporizer

The Da Buddha vaporizer does not have the same reputation as the Volcano another dry herb vaporizer, but it does still provide a good vape and is better than other vapes that have a similar selling price.

The Da Buddha is quick to set up and gets hot in 2 to 4 minutes. There is a mighty ceramic heating element and you are able to set the temperature to the ideal level. There is however no numbers on the dial so precision will take some practice.

There are not a lot of buttons or settings that have to be adjusted on the vaporizer, so you will be able to get satisfying draws right away. There is a ground glass connection that holds the wand in place. The only issue is that due to the angle of the wand, herbs fall inside the whip that can result in uneven heating. You will then need to stir the herbs frequently.

The Pros

  • Provides an above average vapor
  • An affordable desktop vaporizer
  • Ground glass hands free connection
  • High quality ceramic heating
  • Fast heat up time
  • Temperature can be customized
  • Easy to use.

The Cons

  • Herbs need to be stirred to prevent combustion and uneven heating
  • Glass components are fragile
  • No numbers on heating dial

Silver Surfer Vaporizer Review

Silver Surfer Vaporizer Review

The Silver Surfer advertises itself as a desktop vaporizer that makes use of all ceramic heating elements. The Silver Surfer is a good whip vaporizer that produces a good vape from dry herbs.

silver surfer

The Design

The Silver Surfer has a unique design that sets it apart from other desktop vaporizers. The unit is on a flat base and comes out at an angle.

There is a ceramic heating unit that is kept away from other components. The device is made mainly from ceramic and silicone.

The Use

Turn the power knob to full for a few minutes, as this will give the unit time to warm up and reach the preset temperature. Once the unit is heated you can turn the knob back down to a third of its full power. This allows you to vape for a while without risking combustion.

If you opt for aromatherapy oils then you should set it at two thirds of its power.

Insert the whip into the base and begin inhaling. After each inhales it is a good idea to stir your herbs so that they heat evenly.

The Performance

It takes about 3-5 minutes for the Silver Surfer to heat up, which is on par with other desktop vaporizers.

The whips do have a tendency to get dirty after each session as the oils and herbs build up inside the whip, but this can be cleaned easily with some rubbing alcohol.

The vapor that is produced is decent and produces an ok dense vapor.

The ceramic and glass parts are fragile and can break easily if they are dropped, but they do help to produce a clear vapor.

The Silver Surfer is not perfect, but it does come close to it and the ceramic heating means that you get a tasty vapor.

arizer extreme q

Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer Review

The Arizer Extreme Q is a multi-use desktop vaporizer that is more affordable than the Volcano.arizer

The Design

The Arizer Extreme Q has a flat base plate and a tapered cylinder that has a shiny and metallic finish, which gives it a sophisticated look.

This vaporizer is able to use both bags and whips. The heating elements in the Arizer are ceramic. The Arizer Extreme Q also has glass parts, which sets it apart from the competition.


The Arizer Extreme Q has a remote control, which makes ease of use easier. With the remote control you are able to start up your vaporizer from your couch and then when it is ready, walk over and start to vape.

You will need to place your herbs in the bowl and insert them over the heating element. You will also need to attach your whip or balloon. Once you have everything attached you can turn the unit on and adjust the temperature and fan speed to your preference. The temperature control is pretty easy to use and the fan speed changes the density of the vapor. The slower the fan speed is then the thicker your vapor.


The fan on the Arizer is very quiet so it makes for a discreet device that also provides a relaxing vaping session.

It can be hard work to take apart all of the glass parts to clean them and if you drop them they will break. However, the glass parts do provide a clear vapor. The vapor also has a great taste that is due to the glass tubing and ceramic heating.

The tubing and the vaporizer though can get a little hot and they get gunked up quickly so the glass parts need to be cleaned after every use.

As you use the Arizer Extreme Q you will need to stir the herbs to ensure that they are getting vaped. This will also ensure that they do not get burnt.

You get everything that you need with the Arizer Extreme Q and this is a great unit. You get a full and tasty vape and can either vape with the balloons or the whip.

Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer Review

Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer Review

The Magic Flight Launch Box is easily recognizable because of its unique design. The vaporizer is made out of a block of wood and you can choose between maple, cherry and walnut.

Even though the unit might look simple, it isn’t. There is some sophisticated engineering that has gone into the Magic Flight Launch Box that makes it highly efficient in vaporizing dry herbs.

The herb chamber is exposed by swiveling the acrylic screen and uses draw through an acrylic tube attachment.launch box

Another feature that is different about this vaporizer is that it is powered by AA batteries.

Build Quality

The Magic Flight Launch Box is made in the USA and has been beautifully made. It has been made from a single block of wood and has been built to last. The acrylic cover and tube are not cheap wither and are made of a high quality.

The one weak area though is the screen, but this shouldn’t be messed with anyway.

In the Box

When you buy the Magic Flight Launch Box you receive a battery charger, two rechargeable NiMH Glyph batteries with caps, a decorative tin with a felt lining, a cleaning brush, an acrylic draw stem and the manual.


At first the Launch Box is not that easy to use and will require a slight learning curve. After some practice though you will get use to it and using it like a pro.

You will first need to prepare the herbs by finally grinding them. The finer they are then the better the vape will be.

You will then get even vaporization and no residue will be left in the tank.

Once the chamber has been filled, users can start vaporizing by engaging the batteries.

Your draws should be long and slow and pulls should be about 5 to 10 seconds long.

The vaporizer doesn’t have any temperatures gauges so you cant see the temperature, but the design means that you are able to control the vapor heat depending on the length of time that the herbs are heated and how fast you take draws.

The material should also be mixed in between the draws. The cleaning brush can be used to mix the herbs inside.

Production and Performance

The vapor quality is good with a potent hit.

Overall the Launch Box is a good performing vaporizer and uses the plant matter efficiently.

Battery Life

The vaporizer uses two AA batteries, which can last for several hours.

The battery life will also depend on high the temperature is set, how you vape and how often you use the device.
