Vaporizers are currently available in a wide range of brands, styles, and designs. A vaporizer that is available in the market are are tabletop vaporizers, handheld vaporizers, and vaporizer pens. There are vaporizers that are meant exclusively for use with powdered herbs and there are also those that are meant for use with essential oils.

Now, the huge number of options in terms of vaporizers also means there is a wide range of vaporizer accessories currently available. Some of these accessories make your vaporizer a lot easier to use, while others help keep the device in good condition for a longer time.

Aluminum Grinder
The aluminum used in creating vaporizer grinders is anodized, which makes the grinder airtight and lightweight. Note that the best grinders are those that come with a magnetized lid that keeps it in place throughout the grinding process. Note as well that a grinder of superior quality has clog-resistant, razor-sharp teeth that produce maximum cutting power. You’d also do well to choose a grinder package that comes with stainless steel screen.

Mouthpiece Kit
This accessory kit typically includes a mouthpiece, a crucible, an herb storage container, a cleaning tool, and two straws. The mouthpiece can be directly attached to your vaporizer’s filling chamber to help you capture pure vapor.

Protective Carry Case
Vaporizers can be quite expensive, so you would naturally want to protect it from damage of any kind and keep it in top shape for as long as possible. A protective carry case can definitely help you accomplish that. This type of case comes with special padding and is rubber-lined to keep your vaporizer safe in case of falling or hard bumps. There are even cases that are spacious enough for you to store not just the vaporizer itself, but also other accessories.

Car Charger
A vaporizer typically comes with a wall charger, but you don’t always have access to a wall socket, do you? What if you’re on a road trip and your device becomes low on battery a good distance from the nearest motel? That’s when a car charger comes in handy! With this accessory, you can enjoy your favorite herbs and/or oils wherever and whenever you want. Of course, you’ll have to make sure the charger you buy is compatible with the vaporizer you have.

Water Tool Adapter
There are those who choose to use a water tool along with their vaporizer from time to time. This has the advantage of rehydrating and cooling the vapor as well as allowing you to enjoy pure flavor. If you choose to go this route, then you should definitely get a water tool adapter. When you do, you may want to consider getting an all-glass adapter for optimum benefit. And don’t forget to make sure the adapter you choose is a perfect fit with both your water tool and vaporizer. You can check an example of a water tool accessory on the video below.

Metal Pick
A metal pick could very well be the most versatile accessory you can have for your vaporizer. First, you can use it to unclog your vaporizer’s glass screen whenever necessary. Second, you can use it to remove the glass parts of the device for cleaning. Third, it can be a safe way for you to remove a hot oil can after use. Finally, you can use it as a stirring tool for your herbal or essential oil blends. Pretty nifty, huh? These are just some of the accessories you may want to get for your portable vaporizer. There are others that may also be of use to you, depending on the type of vaporizer you have and your preferences in vaping. Here are a couple of tips you may want to keep in mind while shopping for your vape accessories:

Regardless of whether you choose to buy your accessories online or from a brick-and-mortar shop, it’s always advisable to ask whether there is a video showing a demo on how each piece of accessory should be used. Even if the brick-and-mortar shop is unable to show you the video at the time of shopping, it would be helpful is they could tell you which site you should visit to view such a video. If there really is no video available, you should at least make sure the accessory package comes with an instruction manual that’s easy to understand.
