Read on to fully explore our list of the best vaporizers for your use.
This powerhouse vape delivers a solid throat-hit, consistent quality, and all-day use. Definitely worth the price! Features a 1600 mAh variable voltage battery, large tank (holds 2.5 ml) with options for air flow (delivering different heaviness of smoke, versatile - can be used with multiple e-liquids, and comes with 5 replacement coils and USB charger/wall adapter. Additionally, features the longest battery life of all the products on our list, affordable, sleek and beautiful, feels durable, versatile, and compatible with any liquid nicotine or cannabis.
E-liquid must be bought separately, liquid is pricey.
Performance: This vape sets the industry standard for "best battery life". The 1600 mAh battery can run all day long without draining, making it easy for you to plug it in overnight and let it charge.
But don't think battery life is all it has! The settings allow you to adjust the heating element, delivering as thick/thin, rich/mild, hot/cool vapor as you want. It's only compatible with liquids (oils, cannabis, and e-liquid), but you'll find it's easy to burn all of those liquids EXACTLY the way you want them. Some people find the vapor is a bit too cool, but turning up the heat causes the liquid to taste burnt. However, you'll get used to the cooler vapor in no time.
One major plus: the glass chamber delivers rich flavor, but the stainless steel casing ensures maximum durability.
Features: The controls only allow you to adjust the temperature between 3.2 and 4.8 volts, but that's more than enough range (370 F to 420 F) to ensure you get a consistently delicious vapor. With the built-in air flow holes, you get a good vapor without too much heat. It's easy to tweak the vape to your personal preferences until you get just what you want.
Price: At $90, this is a pretty well-priced vape pen. However, for heavy vapers, the high cost ($15 for 30 ml) of the e-liquid may end up costing you more in the long run.
For vaping dry herb, you'll love this sleek, stylish vape pen. The best Atmos has produced to-date! Reaches 385 F in 40 seconds, holds up to 0.4 grams of herb/loose leaf, and 1600 mAh battery with a long life. Additionally, fits in your shirt pocket or briefcase pen holder, lightweight, vapes dry herb beautifully, long battery life, solid flavor and smooth draw.
Will shut off after just a minute or two of inactivity.
Performance: Let's start with the bad: the quick shut-off time. Most vape pens shut off after 3-10 minutes in order to conserve battery life. The Atmos shuts off after 60-120 seconds. Unless you're a casual vaper who just wants an occasional hit, this can be annoying. Thankfully, it has VERY quick heat-up time (30-40 seconds tops), so you can get vaping again quickly.
The heating element reaches 400 F, burning your dry herb very effectively. You get a solid throat-hit and a rich, thick vapor with every pull, though the stainless steel chamber doesn't deliver as well-rounded a flavor as a ceramic one. However, you can fit a surprising amount of dry herb into the compact pen, giving you a steady supply of vapor all day long.
Features: There are no temperature controls built into the vape, but this makes it ideal for those who like their smoke strong and thick. It's a simple "click and puff" design that is user-friendly and incredibly simple to operate. You simply assemble the components and get started!
There is almost no maintenance required with this vape pen--just the occasional cleaning of the built-in mesh filter. Thanks to its long-lasting battery (which is replaceable), you get a well-functioning vape pen that delivers consistency and quality.
Price: The price tag on this vape pen starts at $125, though you can find it for as little as $100. Not the cheapest vape pen, but a good option for those who want a durable, long-lasting vaporizer for their dry herb.
Roughly the size of an old-school beeper, dual chamber design, can vape both liquid and dry herb, easy to load and clean, minimal draw resistance, and produces excellent vapor if given time.
Takes 60 to 120 seconds to properly heat up and deliver the full flavor.
Performance: With this vape, you're getting less of a vape pen and more of a vape box. This is due to the fact that it has TWO heating chambers--one for dry leaf and one for e-liquid. You can use either one at will, all it takes is a minute or two of heating and you can puff away. Once the chambers have heated up properly, you'll find you get a good mouthful of thick, rich vapor with a lot of flavor. Excellent for those who want to savor their nicotine, though the vapor can be a bit hot.
The Haze is incredibly easy to open, clean, re-fill, and reassemble. It does require a bit more cleaning (especially of the glass and steel mouthpieces), but you'll find that the heating element (both conduction and convection) is very reliable. It may be compact, but it doesn't feel like cheap plastic. It's a well-built vape that feels built to last.
Features: The dual chamber feature means you can vape concentrate and dry herb without switching vapes or cartridges. It's easy to switch between the two, and all you have to do is wait for the burner to heat up before vaping away. Many users note that it's better with dry herb, especially on a lower heat setting. Thanks to the ventilation, you can vape without causing a build-up of internal heat (which could damage the vape).
Battery life isn't so great on this vape--you only get about 90 minutes of vaping time before you need to recharge. However, using the battery on the lower heat settings gives you a longer lifespan. The vape also has a built-in auto shut-off function that will turn the heating element off after 5 minutes of inactivity. Unless you're a heavy vaper, you'll find it lasts more than long enough for any outing.
Price: The Haze is a $250 vaporizer, making it one of the most expensive on the list. However, given its portability and versatility, you'll find that it makes a good investment. Plus, it's backed by a 10-year warranty!
Despite its tendency to disassemble while in your pocket, this is one of the best vapes for newbies. Features a built in LCD screen to monitor battery charge and puffs-per-charge, 8 to 12 hours of battery life, affordable and easy to use for e-liquids, slim and portable, and compatible with both concentrate and dry herb.
Not the best for loose leaf and may disassemble while in your pocket.
Performance: If you are looking for simplicity and reliability, this is definitely the vaporizer pen for you. With its 900 mAh battery, you get a vape pen that keeps working from morning until night. It's designed to activate easily (just press the button 5 times), wait a minute, and get smoking.
It's built to vape both dry herb and e-liquid, but you're better off with the e-liquid (poor performance with dry herb). With the e-liquid, you get a solid throat-hit, a rich mouth feel, and a flavorful smoke. It delivers consistent quality all day long, making it a good option for those who want a no-fuss vaporizer.
Features: The built-in LCD screen is one of the major "pros" of this vaporizer pen. The screen not only tells you how much battery life you have left, but it also tells you how many puffs you have until your tank is empty. It makes it easy to know when it's time to recharge or refill.
The heating coil ONLY activates when you press the button, which helps to conserve the battery. You can vape all day long, but if you run out of power, the battery recharges in just 90 minutes.
Price: This is one of the best-priced vapes on the market--anywhere from $25 to $50, depending on the seller. You'd think such a low price tag would equal poor value, but that is not so with this vape. It delivers quality and consistency all day long.
While pricier than most of the other vapes on this list, this is the vape for serious users. Heats quickly, can be used while plugged in, convenient to use on the go, and includes an optional water pipe attachment for water-cooled, cleaner vapor and gentler smoke.
ONLY compatible with loose leaf, cannot vape liquid; iffy battery life.
Performance: This is, hands down, the best herbal vaporizer on the market today! It burns surprisingly hot (420 F), meaning it will produce a thick smoke packed with the flavor. However, be warned: the smoke can be quite hot! The heating element is an inch from your mouth, so you have to breathe slowly to avoid being burned. But this placement means you're getting fresh, rich smoke with every pull.
Features: The vape comes with built-in controls that allow you to adjust the temperature according to the herb you're burning. This gives you total control over your vaping experience. The HydroTube attachment will turn your vape into more of a "water bong", delivering a gentler smoke that will be easier on your throat. Definitely a good option for people who want stronger smoke and a thicker throat-hit with every pull.
Price: At $200, this is a higher-end model. It's worth it if you burn exclusively oils and dry herb, but for those who like concentrate and e-liquid, it may be better to consider other, more versatile models.
If you want a highly versatile vape, this is the one for you. Features 135+ settings, large ceramic chamber with space for plenty of loose leaf and e-liquid, and battery life up to 8 hours. Overall, the most versatile vaporizer on the market with Digital OLED display for greater customizability, Smart Memory Technology remembers your last setting, and is compatible with both e-liquid and loose leaf.
Lacks durability; made of plastic.
Performance: If you're looking for a tailor-made vaping experience, you won't find better than the Matrix. Not only does it deliver a rich, thick smoke, but the 135+ settings make it easy for you to adjust the device EXACTLY the way you want it. It's one of the top-performing vapes on the market today.
Battery life is solid at around 8 hours, and the heating element takes roughly 30 seconds to get your vape ready. You have total control over the vape's performance, making it the most versatile of all the vapes.
Features: The OLED screen allows you to scroll through the many settings, and you can customize every aspect of your smoke down to the last detail. A few clicks, and you can increase or reduce the heat as desired. It's compatible with both dry leaf and e-liquid, and it works wonderfully with both.
The Smart Memory Technology will remember your last configuration, ensuring you get consistent quality every time you use it. The on/off safety feature will keep the vape safe while it's in your pocket or purse.
Price: At $150, this is definitely one of the most high-end vapes around. However, the price tag is definitely worth it for those who want their smoke just so, and want total control over their vape. You don't get more versatile than this bad boy!
If you want compact and portable, you'll love the V2 Pro Series 3! The vape pen fits in any pocket, and is durable enough to last for years of regular vaping. Additionally, e-liquid canister replacements are inexpensive, incredibly simple assembly, excellent vapor output with a solid throat-hit, lightweight, portable, and versatile power settings.
One of the priciest on our list and is ideal for liquid vaping but not as good with loose leaf.
Performance: If you are looking for quality vapor, this is the vape pen for you. With every pull, you get a mouthful of rich, flavorful vapor. Battery life may not be the best on this vape pen (the 650 mAh battery lasts for 12 hours), but you'll find that it's incredibly easy to charge it (via USB) no matter where you are.
The vape pen comes with everything you need to keep smoking on the go: a wall charger, car adapter for the USB plug, and a power bank to ensure your vape stays charged wherever you are. Users have reported dropping it repeatedly, and their vape is no worse for the wear. It's a durable device that can handle a lot of daily use. However, it's surprisingly lightweight and fits comfortably in any pocket or purse.
Features: One of the best things about this vape is the fact that it's so easy to assemble. The magnets built into each part of the vape pen will help all the pieces snap together in seconds, and there's no need to screw anything together. It's as user-friendly as it gets!
It's also a highly versatile vape. It will burn not only e-cig liquid and dry herb, but can burn concentrate as well. Thanks to the variable voltage settings and temperature control, you can adjust how much you burn with each puff--ensuring maximum economy of your smoking.
Price: At $170, this is slightly pricey. However, you can always expect to pay a bit more for quality, and that’s what you get with the V2 Pro. The cartridges are also a bit pricey, but you'll find the liquids are very affordable and come in a wide range of delicious flavors.
