Looking online you'll find a bunch of vaporizer review sites…
They'll throw around random numbers for different vaporizers while leaving you completely in the dark as to how they got to these numbers.
I don't know about you…but when I'm looking to spend my hard-earned money, I would like to read reviews which are based on a SYSTEMATIC, ORGANIZED and CONSISTENT rating system.
Guess what…that is exactly what we do at Herbonaut.

How We Rate Vaporizers
We differentiate between 9 different rate-able categories for desktop and 10 different rate-able categories for portable vaporizers. The extra category for portable vaporizers, surprise surprise…is ‘Portability'.
Every category is being rated on a scale of 1 to 10. And every category consists of multiple rate-able elements. We rate these category elements separately and then calculate the average. The result is the final grade for a particular category.
Lastly, we calculate the average of all the categories and come to the final grade of the vaporizer.
What the End Score Means
The end score is calculated as the average of all the rate-able categories. Obviously the higher the rating…the better the vaporizer, overall.
But there's a catch:
When choosing a vaporizer, it's more important that you pick a vaporizer based on YOUR specific preferences than one with a better general end mark.
What do I mean by this?
Let's give an example:
Let's say potency and flavor are extremely important to you, but the rest of the categories are less important.
This means you should first and foremost get a vaporizer that scores high on potency and flavor and you shouldn't blindly go for the vaporizer which has the higher end score.
