Health, fitness and nutrition are being discussed more than throughout the world. The concern is greater in developed countries as there are fewer other issues that demand more attention. The promotion of healthy lifestyle has been considerably successful especially in America so far. The awareness about the hazards of harmful habits and addictions such as smoking is increasing among the locals. The pace at which the vaporizers are gaining popularity is evidence of the fact that people prioritize health over addiction.
Smoking causes many serious diseases and disorders, on top of the list of which is cancer always. Around 90% of the patients of lung cancer develop the issue due to smoking. Besides, premature death, heart diseases and chronic respiratory disorders are some of the other health risks that are associated with smoking. However, many of those who smoke are victims of addictions. They succumb to the urge of their desire to smoke despite the knowledge of its ill-effect. Addicts need safe or less hazardous alternative in order to transform their habits into a completely healthy one. Vaporizers are the best solution that can be offered to them. It allows them to enjoy the herb that they are addicted to but minus the smoke. Even those who are not addicted but have poor control over their desire can consider buying a vaporizer to save them from the harm of smoking.
Cigarettes and other types of smoking systems that are available in the market burn the herb that they contain. The combustion emits carcinogen, tar and toxin that are inhaled directly into the lungs. It has been proven that the default filters in the cigarettes are of little help. On the other hand, vaporizers are made to heat the herb that is fed into it. They are specially designed to avoid combustion of the material. Thus, they always generate vapor but never smoke.
There are many vaporizers that can even combust the herbs. However, such models always provide detailed information on heat and temperature settings. The growing concern for the provision of safe alternative to smoking for people has been one of the factors in the innovation of vaporizer. A vaporizer heats the materials up to just below their relative combustion point. That is why it does not generate smoke. Thus, it eliminates the scope for release of carcinogen, tar and toxin from the herbs. Since a vaporizer releases only vapor, it is safe unlike cigarettes.
Vaporizers heat the herbs to just below the combustion point, and thus, ensure that the vapor generated due to heat contains maximum flavor and effect of the herb that is fed into it. Therefore, as the users inhale the vapor they can have experience similar to that of smoking cigarettes, but always minus the health risk. Besides, a vaporizer is cost-effective as it can utilize the herbs for multiple uses, unlike cigarettes. Moreover, different models are designed with specific need and demand of people in consideration. So, there is a suitable variety in the market for everyone.
There is no vaporizer in the market like the Silver Surfer Vaporizer. Unlike Silver Surfer, the heating element in none of the vaporizers is all-ceramic. The glass cover of the heater features a small opening for inhalation of the vapour. The air heats up due to the ceramic heating component to the temperature where it vaporizes. The glass cover of the heater of Silver Surfer becomes the passage or the hot air, which then enters the wand made of glass.
The inhalable air does not heat up sufficiently for vaporisation the tobacco for smoking. The hotness of the vapour can be controlled by varying the frequency of inhalation. When users inhale slowly, the air remains inside the glass cover of the heater for longer, and therefore, become more heated. However, even if slow inhalation does not heat up the air enough to vaporise the tobacco, users can simply increase the heat with the help of the regulator.
One of the most important features of the Silver Surfer Vaporizer is the placement of the ceramic component. Other vaporizers with different style of wand allow passage to the hot air through electrical connections and wires. The SSV has eliminated all electronic components and hot wires from the passage for the hot air. Thus, Silver Surfer provides the cleanest vapour. The vapour generated by a Volcano vaporizer, which is considered as a competitor of SSV, is not as pure as that generated by the latter. It is due to the passage of air through the circuitry and device in case of Volcano, the design of which reaches the screen before it vaporizes herbal material. Therefore, the vapour does not remain hot enough for generation of fume when it reaches the screen. The 7th Floor uses a screen of stainless steel too. Thus, prospective customers can judge which one is the best for them.
There are different ways of vaporizing with the Silver Surfer Vaporizer. Users can turn the regulator glass knob to maximum heat for a few minutes and then turn it down to one-third of full strength. In this way the heater gets adequately heated before it is fed with herbs. Otherwise, users can regulate the power to a desired point and wait for a few minutes to let the device heat up. Users can grind the herb in the meantime. Typically, homoeopathic and aroma-therapeutic herbs vaporize at two-third of the full heat.
The appropriate proportion of herb to be fed is ¼ of the total capacity, since it allows the material to get properly evaporate.
Replacing the screen
The screen can be easily changed with the help of a stick. The older one needs to be removed while the fresh one has to be inserted in its place.
Using Oil Diffuser
Users only need to place the oil diffuser of their favourite scent. The heat of Silver Surfer Vaporizer needs to be reduced to ¼ of the maximum power. Notably, hot dish should not be placed on cool surface or vice versa in order prevent oil diffuser from cracking.

Magic Flight Launch Box is a decent product. However, it may let down those with high expectation. It is suitable for those who want a discreet and cheap portable vaporizer for the times they cannot access their home unit. The competitive price of MFLB makes it even more considerable. But it is not for those who want high-quality vapour since MFLB is effective only on dry-herbs. The price seems expensive when observed from that perspective. In fact, hardly any portable vaporizer emits high-quality vapour as desired by many. Moreover, MFLB has not been launched with any promise for improvement either.
MFLB is in a small white box that is covered into another box by the courier service vaproviders. Inside the white box is another sleek box made of tin, and black in colour. It can remind many of collecting hockey and baseball cards as children. The logo of Magic Flight printed with bright neon on the lid makes it playful without losing its professional character. The black felt lining at the box-interior makes it suitable for use while travelling. Other items that comprise the package are: cleaning brush – 1 unit, draw stem – 1 unit, battery caps – 2 units, charge station – 1 unit and charged NiMH battery – 2 units. AA batteries do not work with MFLB.
The batteries can be simply plugged into the outlet for recharging and into MFLB for powering it. Each battery can provide power for 2 – 3 packs. Though it is usually sufficient, especially with option to alternate, longer life is expected from a portable product that is built to be used while travelling. The Flight Guide is helpful and provides details on maintenance, theory and techniques.
Grinding the herbs fine is the first task. Uneven herbs do not vaporize uniformly and are wasted. The ground herbs should be dumped not exceeding than the depth of the trench. The best feature of MFLB is its rapidity. As soon as the lid is snapped and battery is inserted, the vapour appears to generate. What others do in minutes, MFLB does in seconds. So, it takes around one-tenth of the time taken by other vaporizers to show effect. A small light on the surface rear to the trench glows to indicate the engagement of the battery. Mixing the herb after each hit is recommended for better result.
MFLB cannot preserve the herb-taste. It creates definitely noticeable smell when used for sipping. It is not suitable for good-quality herbs since the experience of smoking does not vary. Those who have newly entered the domain of vaporizers and need acquaintance before using V-Tower and/or Volcano will find MFLB useful. However, it cannot be considered as a replacement to vaporizers that support combustion too. It resists wind, and so, it is suitable to be used during short walks.
Perhaps, MFLB is stealthier than all of the portable vaporizers. Typically, 1 is pack sufficient for a single person. Magic Flight Launch vaporizer outstands in terms of customer service too.

Vaporisation is the process of evaporation of liquid due to heat. Generally, a setup that can facilitate evaporation of any liquid can be called a vaporizer. However, the term vaporizer is used to refer to a specific type of device that is designed to produce vapour of liquid as well as solid such as certain herbs. Vaporizers are portable equipment that are typically used to generate vapour for indulgent consumption. They are extensively used in place of a cool mist humidifier. The advantage with a vaporizer is that it boils the liquid before release its vapour. Thus, there is hardly any chance of germy contamination of the vapour. The vapour released by vaporizers can be used for various purposes. It can be used for sheer pleasure as well as sheer medical treatment.
The main use of a vaporizer in the present age commonly is changing the environmental and atmospheric humidity. That is why regular vaporizing devices are mainly used in winters nowadays. Winters are cold and dry in most countries. So, a vaporizer can increase the moisture inside enclosed rooms. The device is fed with water, which is transformed into steam due to heat. The steam is gently blown out of the device into the surrounding air, making the surroundings relatively warm and moist. Even NIH recognises this benefit of vaporizing devices.
Another significant utility of vaporizers is diffusion. They can be utilised in place of diffusers too. They are purposefully built to diffuse the scent of natural essential oil such as eucalyptus oil and lavender oil, or any other any liquid additive. Menthol and camphor are extensively used with vaporizer units too. When these ingredients are used in a vaporizer, the steam carries their scent and healing properties along with it into the air. Thus, the soothing and healing properties of those ingredients become generally present in the air inside the room. Prolonged and regular inhalation of beneficial additives relieves chest congestion, sinus congestion, stuffy nose, allergies or cold.
Dry Body Tissue
Dried body tissues can be remedied with the help of vaporizers too. Skin tissues can dry for various reasons. The consequence of natural process of aging and living in dry or less humid places are some of the top reasons. According to NIH, dry nose, dry throat, dry mouth, dry lips, dry skin, etc. are symptoms that appear only in less humid or dry conditions. A vaporizer can prevent dryness of body tissues or expedite the process of healing.
Reduction in congestion is another important benefit of vaporizers. Its significance and benefits become clear when one or more inhabitants of the place where a vaporizer is used have allergy. Similarly, the device is useful towards quick haling of cold. Prolonged and regular inhalation of moist vapour loosens mucus jammed anywhere in the respiratory system. Thus, it relieves users from stuffy nose, chest congestion, etc., according to AAP. However, vaporizers demand high degree of safety. If a unit is within the range of children’s reach, not only is the device at risk of damage the children can get burnt too.
