The vaporizer industry is still evolving at a fast pace, and we witnessed a lot ofwonderful upgrades and new releases in 2022.Following the technological progresses and discoveries, vaporizers now have better batteries and charging capabilities, as well as more and improved functions. It is the time of the year we update our top 10, so here's some previously unseen vaporizers, some still high performing classics, along with some updated fan-favourites and a glimpse of what is coming.
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.
The DaVinci Miqro is the smallest and most affordable vaporizer by DaVinci, the brand behind some of the best portable vaporizers on the market. With a smaller battery and reduced oven size, the Miqro is ideal for those who want to microdose or have a complementary device.
Everything on the Miqro is up to Davinci's high quality standards, and the device features a zirconium airpath, DaVinci's very own Smart Paths andprecise temperature control. All that in an elegant and well-made housing.
All the useful and usual accessories are included in the package, including the extended mouthpiece that allows you to connect the vaporizer to a water pipe. We highly recommend buying the extra MIQRO Glove though, as the device can get hot after some times. It’s a trade-off required to create a device so small.
An overall very good bang for your buck, that might get even better soon. Did someone say USB-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.
DaVinci's top portable vaporizer cannot be left out of our top 10, and it is only natural that the IQ2 features on this list. The DaVinci IQ2 comes as a sequel to the IQ and includes new functions while keeping everything that made the success of the original.
The IQ2 offers precise temperature control as well as DaVinci's classic Smart Paths, customizable through the DaVinci mobile app. The airtight, all-ceramic air path is made from zirconia in combination with a glass-lined oven to guarantee an incomparable flavour.
The sleek aluminium housing is now brushed for a durable and eye-catching finish and features a new air dial at the bottom that allows you to adjust the airflow restriction. By increasing or decreasing the air / vapour ratio, you can adjust the density and harshness of the vapour, for a fully customisable experience.
ARIZER AIR MAX
Besides unprecedented vapour quality and a long-lasting battery, the ArizerAir MAX is one of the most versatile vaporizers on the market. With its new automatic screen inversion and almost fully customizable usability settings, it has never been easier to combine it to a vape bong and get the exact experience you're looking for. A perfect fit for those who enjoy water-filtered vapour.
The Air MAX is the first Arizer vaporizer to feature a 26650 rechargeable lithium-ion battery, offering more than 2 hours of vapour. Its USB-C charging port – also for the first time on an Arizer vaporizer – allows you to charge it twice as fast as the previous models.
The heating element has been significantly improved, now featuring advanced and precise rapid-heating ceramic technology. This new heater combined with the classic Arizer Air isolated airpath and the original glass pod system makes for a noticeable improvement.
The airflow has also been improved too and is now less restrictive than the previous Arizer vaporizers.
