In my humble opinion, while choosing a portable vaporizer over a desktop vaporizer will certainly ruffle a few feathers, there’s no two ways around it. A portable vaporizer will generally offer more convenience and quality at a good price. So, why pick anything else? It might be fun to have a powerful unit to work with, one that you can share with friends and get huge vapor clouds out of, but for me, it’s not right choice, and it’s likely the same for you.
In this post, I’ll share the top ten best portable vaporizers in the market today. Each of them comes with something a little unique to suit your lifestyle. For those who prefer vaping discreetly or when they are out and about, here are the options I’d recommend.
The mighty vaporizer is made by Storz & Bickel the legendary makers of Volcano. It comes with a robust, handheld design, and it’s quite difficult to find a vaporizer with as much power and quality vapor as this one. Nonetheless, one of the biggest drawbacks about the Might Vaporizer is that it’s not as compact as products like the DaVinci IQ. Still, it’s incredibly portable, only that you won’t be able to put it in your front pocket in a hurry. It’s also particularly easy to use and durable. Plus, the battery can last up to 90 minutes of continuous use when fully charged.
This is the perfect vape if you love everything compact. The Pax 3 will easily slip into any pocket or bag, and you can easily conceal it in the palm of your hand. It’s also incredibly stylish, sleek, and more importantly, subtle. You won’t have to worry about portability at the cost of power" its anodized aluminum body houses a high-tech heating system that handles concentrates and dry herbs with ease. The LEDs on the body of the vaporizer lets you see exactly what settings are active at a glance. Best of all is perhaps the fact that you can bring it anywhere; it’s no bigger than the average smartphone. So, for those who like to travel light, the Pax 3 is a great choice
Crafty is arguably one of the best all round portable vaporizers you can find on the market today. It’s perfect for both beginners and advanced users, since it only uses a single button on its body, and everything else is controlled via an app. As a convection-heated device, Crafty features two temperature settings, one for the default setting and another for boost. You can change the temperatures on the fly using the app or on the unit itself. You don’t need to fiddle with the chamber too much to get the right amount you want to vape on, and it’s generally easy to load. One of the main drawbacks might be its battery life. However, since it can charge via USB, you can charge it in quite a number of places.
ArGo was released in 2018 as a pocket-friendly vape that really packs a punch. As the name suggests, it’s built for people who like to be on the move. It comes with removable batteries, making it easy to keep it charged and ready to go for far longer than the ordinary vaporizers. Its design is also pretty cool. It has three buttons on the body along with an OLED display that shows the current temperature and the battery level. The ArGo also comes with a removable glass stem that helps to keep your vapor crisp and pure.
This has become more of a staple in the last few years of portable vaporizers. It’s the third portable vaporizer offering from DaVinci, and uses conduction heating. The IQ is also very light, weighing around 145 grams. But don’t let its light weight fool you. The DaVinci IQ doesn’t feel cheap, and is made from durable materials that probably won’t be bothered by a few drops (not that you should test this one out!). on a closer look, there wasn’t any skimping on materials in the construction of the IQ. For example, its mouth guard is made from zirconia ceramic, which is easy to maintain for a pure, great tasting vape.
The Miqro Vaporizer is the latest addition to the DaVinci family, which has soared to the top of everyone’s most wanted list in no time. While the IQ is still popularly sought out and will always have a special place in our hearts, there have been a few improvements to its design. One of these is the portability of the vaporizer. The Miqro is 33% smaller than the IQ, which makes it noticeably lighter. So, if you like bringing your vaporizer with you on nights out and hiking trips, this is a great option. Just like the IQ, you still get four options for temperature increases during your session. It also has replaceable batteries and includes a 5-year warranty. This is not bad at all!
With its subtle and bright design, it’s similar to the original Firefly, making it a perfect companion for the great outdoors. Its incredible battery life will ensure that you get a great tasting vapor all night, whether you’re vaping concentrates of dry herbs. Its design also features a borosilicate glass vapor path, which naturally attracts a lot of love from the veteran vapers who understand the harsh realities of tainted vapor. Aside from its excellent design, it features a Bluetooth app that allows for endless control over your vaping experience.
If you prefer having something ultra-portable and light, the Grasshopper vaporizer might be perfect for you. The device basically looks like a typical pen. It only features replaceable batteries, and a quick heating system, which operates like a pure convectional heating system. It also comes with a silicone mouth guard, which makes it great for the longer sessions that might cause the unit to heat up a bit. Although it’s not ideal for sharing with a large group of people, it’s perfect for sharing with a friend or two.
This is definitely one of the smallest devices on our list. The shape of the CFX fits snugly in the hand, is easy to put in the pocket, and it surely a vaping favorite. Its size makes it feel right for sharing with friends, especially due to its large bowl. The CFX also has super quick heating times, which does a lot in bringing this vape in the top ten list. In just 20 seconds, it can reach upwards of 204 degrees Celsius, which is one of the fastest conducting heating times out there. The battery life is a solid 60 minutes of continuous use, which is impressive by any standard.
For those not looking to splurge on a vaporizer but still want a great vaporizer to show for it, fret not. The Xmax starry vaporizer might be the thing for you. It’s the ideal vaporizer for anyone who’s just entering the vaping scene. Despite its affordability, there’s still a wide range of features on the unit. It’s durable, lightweight, and has a full temperature spectrum on its heating unit. Along with these, it comes with replaceable batteries, meaning you’ll be able to keep it on for a long enough.
