When picking out a portable vaporizer for your herbal needs, there are so many things to take into consideration in order to ensure maximum satisfaction. So many of us look for a high-capacity battery, a high-quality heating chamber and output settings that keep our herb tasting great. With so many advancements in vaping technology over the last few years, there are a lot of really exciting features out there that enhance our vapes in many ways.

However, the look and feel of your portable vaporizer can be just as important. After all, this is a device that you’ll likely be handling quite a bit throughout the day. Don’t you want it to feel extremely comfortable in your hand? And, why wouldn’t you want it to look great?

Luckily, many of today’s most advanced vaporizers are also extremely attractive and ergonomically designed. So, if you want to take the look and feel of your device into consideration before making a purchase, simply follow this guide.

Looks Do Matter

The appearance of your portable vaporizer is more important than you may think. When we talk about appearance, we don’t just mean its visual design. We’re also referring to its size and shape.

First, let’s get into aesthetics. If you’re going to be looking at your vaporizer several times throughout the day, you want to make sure it’s got some visual appeal. Before choosing a vaporizer too quickly, really look through the selection of what’s out there today. Chances are that you’ll find something that suits your personal style and is visually stunning to your eyes.

Next, let’s get into the size and shape. These two elements affect both its portability and its conspicuousness. If you’re the type of vaper who likes to enjoy their herb as discreetly as possible, a slim, compact device might be best as these devices can easily slip into the pocket without being noticeable. Or, perhaps, you want something that’s designed to look like something else such as a cigarette, a whistle or a ballpoint pen.

The size and shape also determine how the device will feel in your hand. Some shapes are designed to fit very comfortably in the palm. Rounded edges and wider bodies allow your fingers to hug the device, reducing the risk of muscle strain in your hands. Because, if you’re vaping all day, your hand muscles really can get tired out.

The Feel Makes a Huge Difference

The feel of your portable vaporizer is just as important as the look. If you’re going to be spending a good deal of money on a device, you deserve to have one that feels great in your hand. And, these days, there are loads of materials used for the exteriors of vaping devices.

Now, the feel is really up to you. Do you like the feel of a silicone overlay? Many find that this material feels nicer against the skin than cold, hard materials. Still, many prefer materials like resin and alloy as they feel nice and sturdy, telling the user that the device is durable enough to last.

As for the weight of your device, this is also important. A lightweight device is appealing to most vapers because it can fit in the pocket comfortably without weighing the user down. Plus, a lightweight device is less likely to be dropped. And, the lighter the device, the greater it feels when the user consistently puts it up to their lips during a vaping session.

There are other factors to consider as well. For instance, when you hold the mouthpiece up to your lips, you don’t want to feel a hot material burning your skin. At the same time, you don’t want something that’s cold, especially during the chilly winter months. That’s why choosing the right mouthpiece material is crucial.

And, lastly, the buttons themselves are important. Does it strain your finger to press the firing button? Or, do the buttons feel uncomfortably cold because they’re made of metal? Consider every material from which a device is made before deciding whether or not it’s right for you.

Look and Feel Really Do Matter

As you can see, the look and feel of your portable vaporizer matter a whole lot. These factors can make or break how much you enjoy vaping during the day.
