Desktop Vaporizer

A desktop vaporizer allows you to enjoy the purest, best-tasting vapor and get the most out of your material. It is a big investment, so you want to ensure that you select the best one for your needs. Our reviews below of some tabletop vaporizers can help you select the unit that is right for you.

Forced-Air & Balloon Bag Cannabis Vaporizers

A forced-air vaporizer is one of the two main types of tabletop vaporizer designs and is considered by many to be a superior way to vape. This type uses an internal fan or an air pump to circulate air inside of the heating chamber. Also called a balloon bag vaporizer, as it releases vapor into bags or balloons attached to mouthpieces and allows you to draw at your leisure. At VaporPlants, we carry many of the forced-air vaporizer models, like the Volcano Vaporizer, Herbalizer, and the VapirRise. Whether you prefer a dry herb vaporizer, or a model that also allows you to vape oils and waxes, we have the perfect forced-air model to meet your needs.

Whip-Style Weed Vaporizers

A whip vaporizer is a type of desktop vaporizer, allowing you to draw directly on demand from the heating chamber using a device called a whip. The whip includes three different parts: a wand for holding your material, a mouthpiece that you draw through, and a hose that connects the two parts. In our collection of whip vaporizers, you'll find models with and without ground glass connections. A ground glass or hands free whip style has a special connector that keeps the wand of your vaporizer whip in place while you draw, so that you don't have to hold it.

Whips vs Wands

vaporizer whip tubing, mouthpiece and wand shown diagram

As you begin to shop for and compare various types of tabletop vaporizers, you'll soon notice that the terms "hands free" and "standard" are often used to describe these devices. Although it's common knowledge that a hands free dry herb vaporizer allows you to vape more easily. The actual mechanics behind how this device works may remain unknown to many new vaping enthusiasts. Because of this, we've created this article to provide a brief introduction to both hands free and standard wands. Hopefully, you will be able to use this knowledge to find the perfect vaporizer that meets your needs and expectations! Although there is no "perfect vape", these products may help you have an excellent experience with vaping!


Vaporizers that are given the "standard" or "hands free" label are those that rely on whips to draw the vapor out of the chamber. If you are looking to buy a vaporizer, it's important that you become familiar with this terminology!

Silver Surfer Vaporizer wands with a hands free wand attached

A whip consists of three parts: a wand that holds the herbal blend, a mouthpiece which provides suction in order to draw the vapor out of the chamber, and the whip tubing that connects the two pieces. When comparing the attributes of standard whips and hands free whips, the difference lies in the wand itself rather than any other component of the whip's design.

Hands Free Wands: The Good

Hands free wands are designed to remain stable inside of the vaporizer without requiring the user to hold it in place. These are usually large units and would classify as a tabletop or a desktop vaporizer. In order to make this possible, the feature of hands free ground glass wands connection, a somewhat courser texture that provides increased grip and security. The hands free vaporizer's connection point has also been converted into ground glass. The texture of the two connection points creates friction which helps to hold the wand in place, allowing you to keep your hands free when vaping. Some people also like the look of a ground glass wand compared to the standard wand.

Hands Free Wands: The Bad

While many people prefer hands free vaporizers and wands due to the convenience they offer, it's important to note that these devices do have their drawbacks. The friction that holds the wand in place also makes it impossible for to move or rotate the wand inside of the vaporizer. As a result, some of the herbal blend may not fully vaporize. Wear and tear to a vaporizer caused by frequent use, as well as low quality parts and vibrations can all lead to the reduced effectiveness of the ground glass connection, which can cause the wand to fall out of the vaporizer. If this occurs, complete breakage of the wand may result. The dry herb blend itself may also fall out of the heating chamber.

About Standard Wand Vaporizers

Unlike the hands free vaporizers, the standard vaporizer features smooth connections throughout the hardware. The smooth surface is quite slippery, requiring users to hold onto the wand while vaping. The standard vaporizer design has remained quite popular due to the fact that they do not have the same drawbacks as more recent hands free designs. Using the standard vaporizer, individuals can optimize the efficiency of their personal vaporizer and avoid the risk of breakage.

A Final Note about Wands

In addition to deciding whether to purchase a standard or a hands free vaporizer and wand, you will also have the opportunity to decide between one and two-piece wands. A two-piece wand features a threaded connection that allows users to open up the device for cleaning. Although a one-piece wand does not have this added feature, it is noticeably less expensive.

So, which type of wand and vaporizer is right for you? Ultimately, it depends upon your personal preferences. If you're vaping an expensive blend, concerns about wastage may supersede the convenience of a hands free design. If you're only planning to vape tobacco, however, this may not be an issue at all.
