Three herbal vaporizers and some herbs to use with them
With the increasing popularity of the e-cigarette and some early prototypes of vaporizers, there is a new type of device that’s drawing a lot of attention from enthusiasts – the herbal vaporizer. An herbal vaporizer is a battery-powered gadget that uses electricity to heat up a mixture of herbs and allows the user to inhale on the resulting vapor.
There are essentially two main types of herbal vaporizers: desktop and portable. Desktop vaporizers have to always be plugged into an outlet and they typically need to be placed on a flat surface but at the same time they produce the strongest and largest volume of vapor. An internal rechargeable battery usually powers portable vaporizers and they vary in size from something that fits in your palm to something the size of a small water bottle.
We are going to look at three portable herbal vaporizers today and at some of the plants you can use with them.

The Firefly is the latest portable vaporizer on the market and it will fit in right with your cell phone.
