This section is designed to help you find the best portable weed (dry herb) vaporizer based on some of the most popular and debated choices for 2017.
I initially started this blog highlighting the top 5 vaporizers on the market at the time which included both portable and desktop. There really wasn’t many great vaporizers on the market back then.
I’m quite happy to see that things have changed quite a bit in recent years! This site has grown so fast and kept me busy evenings and week-ends trying to get new vapes tested and reviews posted. The fastest growth has been in the portable category as you can see from the list below which seems to be growing all the time!
I still have quite a few vaporizers sitting here still waiting to be opened and tested! It’s quite remarkable to see how fast this new technology is advancing, how small portable vaporizers are getting and how many new players are getting involved. I can’t wait to see what the next 5 years bring!
The debate continues (and will probably always continue) online on popular sites like Twitter, Facebook and Reddit in regards to which vaporizer listed here actually is THE best portable vaporizer among this group.
My current top choice is the new DaVinci IQ while others swear by the Pax Series, Arizer Air, G-Pen Elite or even the Mighty. I have a friend who won’t use anything other than the Magic Flight Launch Box!
This section is designed to help you narrow down your choices and find the best portable vaporizer for your particular lifestyle, needs and taste.
Once you are dealing with the more high quality brands the rest is really just a matter of personal style, budget and preference.
Are you more concerned with performance and vapor purity like myself, or are you more focused on heating time and stealth?
How long do you need the battery to last between charges? How important are the aesthetics? Or, is budget your primary concern?
Since this list has grown so incredibly over the last few years, I have now broken them down into 3 main groups:
- Best of the Best -Best of the Top Shelf Portable Vaporizers
- Mid Range -Best of the Mid-Range Portable Cannabis Vaporizers
- Best of the Budget -Best Portable Weed Vaporizers on a Budget
Regardless of which category you choose from Best to Budget, I still would not include a vaporizer on these pages that I wouldn’t use and personally recommend regardless of the price. A poor vaporizer is a poor vape regardless of price, design, bells and whistles, etc.
As we all know, in most cases, you get what you pay for but I’ve come to learn that with vaporizers, more expensive isn’t always better and there are some great vaporizers on the market now that won’t break the bank.
The new Pulsar APX is a great example of that. It may be listed in the budget section but it’s a vape I really enjoy using, offers and fully ceramic heating chamber and it just works great.
So, with that being said, don’t let the dollar amount be your only point of focus. Any vape you see listed on these pages, regardless of section, is only here because it is a vape that I have used and personally enjoy.
If you are a new vaper or someone who is looking to buy their first weed vaporizer, I can assure you that if you choose one of the vapes listed on this site, you will not be disappointed. The rest really is up to you.
Feel free to use the comment section for any questions, or if you’d like to recommend a portable vaporizer you think should be listed here as well, I’m always eager to try new vapes!
