The vaporizer industry is a fast-evolving sector, and we witnessed a lot of wonderful upgrades and new releases in 2021, despite a tough worldwide situation. This is the time of the year we update our top 10, so here's some previously unseen vaporizers, along with some updated fan-favourites. Without further ado, let’s take a look at our selection of the best vaporizers for 2022.
DaVinci offers some of the most advanced and forward-thinking set of vape devices available, and we definitely couldn't go without one of their handheld vaporizers in our top 10. DaVinci premium vaporizers are known for their clean airpath and high-quality materials, as well as consistent and precise temperature control.
The IQC is the ideal middle ground between DaVinci’s IQ2 and MIQRO, as it offers almost all the same great features of the top-shelf IQ2 in a more affordable format.
With the Smart Paths, you can customise your vaping session in ways no other vaporizer can. The DaVinci app lets you choose precise temperatures that evolve over a defined period of time, so you can really enjoy your herb or concentrates your own way. Cherry on top, its USB-C port allows it to fully charge in as little as 2 hours.
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 edition, 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.
STORZ & BICKEL MIGHTY+
The Mighty gives way to its successor the Mighty+ on our list of the best vaporizers this year. The ultimate portable powerhouse has finally been updated, and we couldn't be happier about it.
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.
This new device features a USB-C charging port that makes charging faster and more convenient, and the improved heating element allows for a faster heat-up time.
VapoShop currently offers the Filling Aid for free with every Mighty+, so you don't miss out on this famous and really useful Storz & Bickel accessory.
DYNAVAP VAPCAP ‘M’ 2021
A proper top 10 vaporizers list wouldn’t be complete without a VapCap by DynaVap, 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 it on our list, but it definitely holds its own amongst the other battery-driven powerhouses.
Because the DynaVap VapCap ‘M’ 2021 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 2021 ‘M’ is praised by experts as the ultimate device for those who consider themselves flavour chasers. If you’re all about flavour and you’re looking for a device that guarantees almost instant vaping, you can't go wrong with a VapCap ‘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. It 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.
STORZ & BICKEL CRAFTY+ C
The Crafty+ C is one of two vaporizers updated by Storz & Bickel this year to make our top 10 list. Like the new Mighty+, this new version of the portable Crafty vaporizer features a USB-C charging port as well as a freshly redesigned ceramic-coated chamber.
The Crafty+ C 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+ C.
FIREFLY 2+ BY FIREFLY
The Firefly 2+ 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 2021 ‘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
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 build 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.
BONUS: STÜNDENGLASS GRAVITY HOOKAH - THE BEST VAPE ACCESSORY
Even though the Stündenglass Gravity Bong is not a vaporizer per se, we had to mention it in our top vaporizers list. This premium contactless water pipe unlocks amazing possibilities and offers some of the best vaping combos ever when used with a vape.
The ultimate combination is achieved with the G Pen Connect, allowing you to enjoy a surreal amount of tasty vapour from your favourite concentrates. These two devices are a true match and definitely worth the experience.
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, allowing you to inhale vapour without having to make contact with the mouthpiece. The Stündenglass Gravity Hookah also comes with a 90 cm silicone hose which lets you use it as a classic hookah.
2021 brought a newer and maybe even better version of the Gravity Hookah: the Kompact. The Stündenglass Kompact offers all the same great features as the original but in a smaller, more portable format and comes with a cleaning kit and carrying case.
