The ever-expanding vaping market never fails to surprise us. Every year new innovative technology is introduced that radically improves the performance of vaping equipment. However, advances in technology come at a price, and not everybody can afford them.
Of course, not all vaporisers are equal, and there are significant differences in pricing between desktop and portable vaporisers. That's why most people tend to use portable vaporizers which are a cost-effective solution, and easier to use on the move.
However, although most vaporisers are made for herb or oils, there are many that are made to utilise wax as opposed to the aforementioned. Wax vaporizers come in many shapes, designs and models including desktop devices, palm-held devices, and portable pen devices. The cheapest of the bunch – and mirroring the trend – are the pens.
These vaporizers use conduction or convection depending upon the model. They also come with several coil options including titanium coils, ceramic coils and a dual rod quartz coil. These coils when heated, then give rise to flavoursome vapours, which is the basic principle on which almost all vaporizers work.
So, if you are a budget-conscious herb aficionado, then here are a couple of the best wax pen vaporizers under $100.
