Best vaporizer, here are the candidates:

Best compromise

Evaluation parameters: Portability, vapor quality, ease of use, Design &Duration. Jack of all trades.

Crafty Plus


The Crafty+ is the younger brother of Mighty, reviewed by us some time ago.
It is a dry herb vaporizer that mainly uses convection technology to heat the grass, with a range of temperatures ranging from 100 to 410 °F.

Thanks to the use of convection, it will produce a steam of excellent taste and definitely pleasing to the throat, causing no disturbance during vaping.

Very small and compact, you can keep it in your pocket and stay in the palm of your hand: a best seller dry herb vaporizer.

The “plus” 2020 version, it’s a step forward overall.



Best vaporizer for vapor quality

Evaluation parameters: Taste, Density, Temperature

Firefly 2 Plus


When it comes to steam quality, the Firefly 2 Plus is second to none in our ranking of the best portable dry herb vaporizers.With this convection dry herb vaporizer you can also use concentrates and oils, and even with these produces an excellent and super smooth vapor.

It heats up in just 3 seconds, and produces quite chubby clouds of vapor; its use is simple, so even a novice can use it without problems, while the expert loves it because of its excellent vaporization.

The battery is swappable and it recharges in about 45 minutes.

In case you take it outside the home for long periods, like at the campsite or at a concert, I suggest you get an extra battery, in order to have one always charged.



Best vaporizer for discretion / portability

Evaluation parameters: Dimensions, Weight, Portability, Discretion

Pax 3



The Pax 3 is an evolution of the previous Pax 2 dry herb vaporizer, it heats faster, it is lighter and it can even vaporize concentrates.
It is the best portable dry herb vaporizer with regard to portability and discretion.

In fact, the Pax will fit perfectly in your pockets, and hides completely in the palm of your hand and is also very light.
The vapor quality is good, especially considering the dimensions: it uses conduction technology.

It has a 10 years warranty.
As for the Pax 2, the defects are a slight resistance to the flow of steam when inhaling.



Best vaporizer for dry herbs only

Evaluation parameters: Best weed-only vaporizer

Davinci IQ 2


The Davinci IQ 2 is modern, compact, stylish and produces a steam of excellent taste and density.

It has a 10-year warranty, a removable battery and you can control the temperature and other parameters through an app on our smartphone.

If you are looking for a vaporizer dedicated solely to dry herb, you are in the right place.



Best vaporizer – Battery life

Evaluation parameters: Better average battery life (from max charge)



As read at the beginning of the post, the Mighty is the big brother of Crafty, which it differs for the lacking of the LED screen, but not only.
The larger battery allows it, at the cost of a bit of portability, to last almost 2 hours, if used with care.

The steam quality is excellent and this dry herb vaporizer is robust and easy to use: in fact, the convenient display shows the set temperature and the battery status.

The cons of Mighty are the size a bit too abundant compared to other portable competitors and the fact that the battery can only be recharged by the wall power outlet.


Best vaporizer for concentrates

Ghost Mv 1

ghost mv1 vaporizer


The Ghost MV1 is a perfect tool to vaporize your concentrates, therefore it is perfect for all fans of wax and dab.
Its vaporization chamber is in ceramic and does not put the heating element in contact with the substance that we want to vaporize.
The result is similar to a mixture of conduction and convection technology, which gives the vapor a perfect taste.

The Ghost MV1 has a removable battery.


Best vaporizer under $250

Evaluation parameters: Guess 🙂

In fact, there are many options to chose a dry herb vaporizer under 200 pounds: here are some suggestions.


Boundless CFX


The Boundless CFX is an excellent portable dry herb vaporizer, with an excellent vapor quality, and an enviable battery life.
Basically it is a step below the Mighty, of which it remembers the features and the display, but the price difference is considerable; remains a good compromise between quality and price, in its range.


FlowermateV5.0 Pro


This dry herb vaporizer is the evolution of V 5.0, with a led display for complete control over the vaporization temperature.

Good vapor quality and portability, decent battery life.


Pax 2


Still a winning choice, PAX 2 has remained a landmark portable vaporizer since its launch in 2015. Featuring 4 preset temperatures optimized for dry herb and concentrates, this pocket-friendly powerhouse will zero in on the best temp for your favorite strains and vaping style based on how you inhale. 


Best vaporizer without battery

Dynavap Vapcap series


VapCap dry herb vaporizers have the characteristic of being without a battery, in fact it can be used with a normal lighter (a torch lighter is better).
It is a great advantage to never have to worry about the battery life, and besides they are extremely portable.
