A battery powered herb grinder puts a fun, modern way in grinding your herbs. Being the smallest in the electric grinder family, it has some pros and cons over a manual grinder.
Let’s see what makes the mill above a manual one.
Many love using this grinder because you don’t have to use both hands to grind. It’s highly beneficial for those who use herbs for medicinal purposes. People with muscle or joint issues, hand tremors, and other grip problems find using manual grinders cumbersome.
This grinder features a single-button operation. A simple push and the unit will do the herb grinding for you. Depending on the setting, you can have a coarse or fine grind without any effort at all.
The grinder comes with different attachments that will make it easy for you to load your bowl or atomizer. Some come with a funnel attachment for neat and convenient loading. Some have a point and grind feature, allowing you to dispense ground herbs as you grind.
Some have a chamber for joints and blunts. Just load your rolled paper, and it will catch the herbs as you grind.
When you need your herbs stat, you can’t afford to spend even less than a minute of grinding. A portable electric grinder can process your nugs in just a few seconds.
The designs are slim and sophisticated. Some models will conveniently fit in your pocket, while others can sit comfortably in your bag or purse. The unit is mostly made of durable material, allowing you to carry it with you as you travel.
Convenient and handy this type of electric herb grinder may be, there are some cons that you need to be aware of.
Some of these grinders have glass parts. Although it makes it easier for you to see your ground herb during operation, glass limits the unit’s portability and durability. You have to be careful not to drop it or tap it too hard to prevent damaging it.
It needs some juice to get going. Once the battery drains, you can’t use it until you plug it into an outlet. Some do have universal cables, so just in case you lost yours, you can easily use the one from your phone. However, some do have dedicated cables and chargers, making it difficult for you to charge in case you forgot to bring it along.
Because of the technology and electronic parts applied to the grinder, getting one may cost you a hefty some compared to manual grinders.
Kief is what makes your herbs tasty and potent. Although some electronic grinders have attachments for catching kief, they are still less efficient compared to manual grinders. The manufacturers are still yet to perfect their design for catching crystals. If you’re a fan of kief, you should consider getting the Kannastor Multi-Chamber 4pc Grinder. It has a modular magnetic design that effectively contains your herbs. The stainless steel screen catches your kief, making it one of the most efficient grinders in the market.
The repairs can be costly, especially if you have to replace some parts. On some models, once they stop working, you’re better off buying a new one. Also, some models require that you clean the unit after every grind. If you’re a heavy smoker or someone who needs frequent medication, this is going to be a hassle.
A battery-powered herb grinder can make grinding fast and easy, and convenient. Its one-hand operation makes it attractive to those with hand problems, and for busy individuals. There are also some limitations like the need for power, expense, and high maintenance.
It’s an excellent grinder for modern smokers who love efficiency and advanced technology.
