Out to Lunch
How 'infrared' the bulbs actually are I don't know. If that's just a halo bulb with red glass does that make it IR?
Even though people frequently talk about IR, it’s worth keeping in mind that IR doesn’t heat the air, thus serving little value in a convection vape. And while IR is technically always present, to actually vaporize via IR takes considerable heat energy. IR is also very localized heating and subject to the inverse-square law.
To vape with IR is like using a toaster, that radiant energy only cooks the very top of the load.
