PAX 3 BY PAX LABS
The PAX 3 keeps popping up on ‘Best-of-lists’ and with good reason. Created to vape both herbs and concentrates, it is one of the most stealthy devices out there. It easily fits in your pocket or bag, and thanks to its sleek design, it won’t raise any suspicion whatsoever, just envy.
Sold as a Complete Kit , the PAX 3 comes with an oven lid that reduces the chamber capacity by 50%. This makes the PAX 3 an ideal vaporizer for those who are looking to microdose. Or, if you are an extract fan, the Complete kit also offers a concentrate insert. If you want to make your herbs or concentrates last, this definitely comes in handy. If you are looking for a more affordable option, you can choose to buy the Device Only , which offers great value and includes everything you need to vaporize your favourite herbs.
Thanks to the brilliant mobile app, you can easily customise your vaping experience and adjust your preferred settings. PAX continuously updates their app, which makes for an optimal experience at all times.
STÜNDENGLASS GRAVITY HOOKAH
The Stündenglass Gravity Hookah is a truly unique piece of kit that functions as a 3-in-1 device that allows you to use it as a Hookah, vaporizer and bong.
The cool thing about this device is that it generates airflow with the use of gravity. Its borosilicate glass water reservoir rotates on a 360º axis and uses the kinetic energy of cascading water to generate airflow that immediately cools the vapour that bursts out of the mouthpiece. This allows you to inhale the vapour without having to make contact with the mouthpiece. Something that is quite important nowadays, in case you wish to share the experience with your friends.
Otherwise, The Stündenglass Gravity Hookah also comes with a 90 cm silicone hose which lets you use it as a classic hookah.
STORZ & BICKEL MIGHTY
The Mighty by Storz & Bickel is one of the vaporizers that also made our 10 best portable vaporizers of 2018 and 2020 list. It remains a top 10 vaporizer for many reasons, with the biggest one being its versatility; the Mighty is a portable vaporizer that functions just as well as a desktop vaporizer.
The bright LED screen on the Mighty gives you all the required information regarding settings and current temperature, as well as the status of your battery life. It’s an easy-to-operate device that will give you haptic feedback once it’s good-to-go.
VapoShop currently carries the 2018 version of the Mighty, which is driven by an improved battery good for 20% more power.
DYNAVAP VAPCAP 2020 M
A proper top 10 vaporizers list wouldn’t be complete without a DynaVap VapCap, and we expect it will remain on lists like this one for many years to come. It’s the only open-flame vaporizer that made this year’s list, but it definitely holds its own amongst the other, battery-driven powerhouses.
Because the DynaVap VapCap 2020 ‘M’ doesn’t rely on complex electronics, it is one of the most affordable vaporizers we carry. All you need is a (torch) lighter, and you’re set for instant on-demand vaping at any time.
Made to vape both herbs and concentrates, the DynaVap VapCap 2020 ‘M’ is praised by experts as the ultimate device for those who consider themselves a flavour chaser If you’re all about flavour, and you’re looking for a device that guarantees instant on-demand vaping, we can’t think of any vaporizer better suited to your wishes than the DynaVap VapCap 2020 ‘M’.
STORZ & BICKEL VOLCANO HYBRID
The Volcano Hybrid by Storz & Bickel is without a doubt the best home or desktop vaporizer on the market. Still building on the foundation that was laid with the Volcano Classic, the Hybrid is like its digital younger brother that offers the option of vaping through a balloon as well as a whip.
The Volcano Hybrid is as straightforward as a vaporizer can be. Fill the chamber, choose your preferred temperature, switch on the air pump and voilá! The only thing you have to decide for yourself is how to consume the vapour you create.
The Volcano Hybrid is called the Hybrid for a reason. It gives you the choice between vaping directly through a whip or “catching” the vapour in a detachable balloon. With the detachable balloon, the vapour may be inhaled at ease, completely separated from the vaporization process. This makes it perfect for social vaping, as it’s both comfortable and safe!
Another recurring vaporizer on our yearly list is the Boundless CFX. The Boundless CFX is included once more because it is perhaps the ultimate device when we look at the amount of power for your buck.
The large, powerful battery makes for some serious clouds of full vapour. It also means you can bring the Boundless CFX with you on those longer trips, without having to worry about it running out of juice.
The Boundless CFX is one of the more sturdy vaporizers out there. Thanks to the solid casing, it can definitely take a hit or two. If you live an active outdoor lifestyle and you ́re looking for a suitable device, we highly recommend the Boundless CFX.
BSTORZ & BICKEL CRAFTY+
The Crafty+ is one of two vaporizers on this year’s list that received the “+” treatment. As the follow-up to the original Crafty, the Crafty+ provides some pleasant updates to its predecessor. The original Crafty was part of our 10 best portable vaporizers for 2018, and it makes total sense for the new and improved Crafty+ to make both last year’s and this year’s list.
The Crafty+ is extremely easy to operate, which is even further strengthened by the tremendous mobile app. The app even offers a “Find my Crafty” option, which we believe can be of real assistance to some of our fellow botanists out there.
With a fast heat-up time and very little draw resistance, the Crafty+ is a very powerful portable vaporizer. Storz & Bickel only make use of the finest materials when building their devices, and the Crafty+ is powered by a longer-lasting battery. If you’re looking for a strong impact from your materials, we highly recommend the Crafty+.
FIREFLY 2+ BY FIREFLY
Another iconic vaporizer we saw get the “+” treatment was the Firefly 2. The Firefly 2+ - very much like its predecessor, which was featured in our 2018 list - is quite possibly the ideal vaporizer for those who are all about taste. The vapour and terpene profile released are of the absolute highest quality, perhaps only rivalled by the previously discussed VapCap 2020 ‘M’.
Good-to-go in only 3 to 5 seconds, the Firefly 2+ offers almost-instant vaping. When you’re not inhaling, the chamber cools down rather swiftly, making sure no material is wasted. If economic vaping is your thing, this might be the perfect device for you.
On top of the amazing flavour and economic vaping, the Firefly 2+ is an easy vaporizer to operate and maintain. Cleaning your device couldn’t be more straightforward and thanks to the superb Firefly mobile app, you are in complete control of adjusting the settings.
G PEN ELITE
New on this year’s list is the latest portable vaporizer from Grenco Science: The G Pen Elite. With its sleek, ergonomic design and large, all-ceramic heating chamber, this convection vaporizer delivers smooth and flavourful vapour on-the-go.
The temperature control feature lets you select any temp between 93° - 220°C, giving you all the freedom to experiment and find your optimal vaping temperature. This welcome bit of freedom is clearly made visible on a full LED display.
The large herb chamber, which fits about .75 grams of dry herb, is all around ceramic and lets you enjoy extra-long vaping sessions.
ARIZER SOLO II
Besides unprecedented vapour quality and a long-lasting battery, the Arizer Solo II’s built is also solid and robust. Those are great features for a portable conduction vaporizer. A perfect fit for those who enjoy an active outdoors lifestyle.
The long glass mouthpiece doesn’t only cool the vapour for smooth hits, it also allows you to enjoy the full flavour of the terpene profiles of your favourite dry herb.
The temperature is fully adjustable and is equipped with an OLED screen, letting you set your preferred settings with ease.
