Posted by Accounts AusVapes on

There is nothing worse than when the vape you invested in isn’t living up to its factory standards. There can be a couple reasons why you’re getting bad results from your vaporiser and it can be from some simple mistakes you’re making. 

We want to ensure you get the best results from whatever vaporiser you get your hands on. It doesn’t matter what vaporiser you use; all of them should have a high standard of vapour quality regardless of make or brand.

Improving vaporizer quality

Let us be your vape quality compass

Navigating through the choppy seas of vaporiser mishaps can be hard; allow us to be your guide and help you get back to land safe and sound with a preforming vaporizer in hand.

Dry herb

Aside from the actual unit itself, the biggest performance influencing factor is your herb. Different dry herbs and batches can yield very different results. We are aware that in relation to your material, these are elements that are completely out of your control. But there are some things that you certainly can.


Material moisture is a big component. Some believe the drier the better but that is not entirely true. Don’t get us wrong, it is always better to be on the drier side of the scale but if your substance becomes too dry, it can have detrimental effects to the potency. Finding a sweet balance between dry and moist is key!

Grind consistency

Grind consistency can have a major effect on vapour production. Most vapes call for finely ground herb to allow enough surface area, so heat can flow through the herbs evenly and produce some beautiful vapour. A good grinder is key.

Temperature is always a topic of argument when it comes to vaporizers and rightly so; most vaporizers nowadays give you complete control over the heating components making it somewhat difficult on choosing what temperature to use. Particularly if you’re swapping between different herb types. The best way to figure out what temp you like is to experiment. Start off low and work your way up in 5-degree increments until you find one that works for you and your dry herb material!

Heat-up times

As vaporiser units advance and change so do their heat up times. Heat-up times are becoming quicker. If your unit instructions say that your vaporizer will be fully-heated in 30 seconds; throw another 10 or so seconds on that to ensure the device is properly heated.


A huge issue that can prevent vapour production is how you inhale. Many people believe that short, fast and quick inhales are the best way, which is incorrect in a vaping context. Long, slow and deep inhales are the way to go.


The biggest issue of all is maintenance. You must clean your vaporizer. Remember – a clean vape is a happy vape! Cleaning briefly after every session is recommended but not mandatory but do clean frequently! We recommend cleaning your vape once a week, depending on how often you use it. Cleaning your vaporizer is paramount to a high-preforming unit.

Following these simple tips can help you get the most out of your vaporizer and seriously boost your vapour quality. Whether you’re looking to improve the quality or overall performance of your device, these small tips and tricks should come in handy!
