If you're looking for the best vaporizers in the market you're in the right place! We've done the research, tested hundreds of vaporizer and boiled it down to five top choices. Here they are:
1. Arizer Solo 2
The Arizer Solo 2 is the follow up to the mega popular Solo. Arizer is a world renowned brand for a reason: they make stellar dry herb vaporizers that work well for a fair price.
The main reason the Solo 2 comes in second is because of its impressive battery life. When fully charged it runs for almost three hours non stop without needing a charge. That's probably the longest battery life of any portable vaporizer you can find in 2019.
Not only is the battery life stellar, but the vapor quality is fantastic. It features a hybrid ceramic/stainless steel heating system which delivers delicious and thick vapor. The vapor itself stays cool due to the long glass air path.
Don't worry if you're in a rush too! The Arizer Solo 2 heats up in around 20 seconds which means you can go from dry herb to vapor in no time. The digital controls are sleek and simple to use.
Just like the Mighty, the Arizer Solo 2 isn't quite pocketable since it has a glass tube that you pull from, but the battery life and vapor quality more than make up for it. If you're looking for an awesome portable vaporizer at a fair price, definitely consider the Solo 2.
Also we didn't include the Arizer Air 2 in this list but it deserves a mention. It's essentially a smaller version of the Solo 2 with a worse battery life.
2. Davinci IQ/MIQRO
Davinci has been making vaporizers for over five years now. They started off with the original Davinci Vaporizer and followed it up with the solid Davinci Ascent. Their third product is certainly their best portable vaporizer yet.
Perhaps the best thing about the Davinci IQ is the design—it just looks downright sexy. It has a super sleek design with a beautiful LED grid display. It looks like it could be an Apple device if they decided to dip their toes in the vaporizer market.
Not only does it look great, but it performs great too. It delivers tasty vapor from its ceramic heating chamber which is a conduction heating system. It also includes a 'flavour chamber' which lets you vaporize dry herbs without having to grind them up.
If you're looking for a true, pocketable, portable vaporizer you're in luck. The Davinci IQ is small. It only weighs around 145 grams which is tiny compared to many other portable units. You can easily throw it in your pocket along with your phone.
The battery will only last about an hour of use though, so be wary. The batteries are replaceable so consider picking an extra one up if you're going with the Davinci IQ. They're easy to swap in and out!
New in 2019: Davinci released the MIQRO vaporizer, which is very similar to the IQ but has a smaller size and comes in at a lower price point. While the battery lasts a little bit less than the IQ, it's an amazing little conduction vaporizer. If you want a small unit to throw in your pocket, you should definitely take a look at the MIQRO.
3. Boundless CF/CFX
Boundless has released a couple cheap products that have taken the dry herb vaporizer world by storm. The CF/CFX are essentially a poor man's Crafty/Mighty: they are hybrid convection, they look similar and they have similar sizes. Considering they're half the price of their Volcano counterparts—the CF/CFX are pretty impressive.
The Boundless CF is the smaller of the two. It's a relatively small size and features five different temperature settings. The battery is non-replaceable and will last you around 50 minutes of use.
The Boundless CFX is the big brother. It's bulkier, but features a nice OLED display which lets you pick your exact temperature. Like the CF, the batteries are non-replaceable and will last you around 60 minutes of use.
What really sets these two vaporizers apart from the crowd is their vapor quality. They have the best vapor of any cheap vaporizer available right now. It's not quite on par with the best, but it's definitely better than most. If you're just starting out with vaporizing, or can't afford a more expensive unit, you won't be disappointed with either the Boundless CF or CFX.
4. Arizer Go (ArGo)
The Arizer Go, or ArGo for short, is the latest release by the Canadian company Arizer and is the 8th best dry herb vaporizer on out list. It's their most compact dry herb vaporizer yet and has a nice looking square design. The size is comparable to the Davinci IQ, just maybe a little bit wider.
The benefit of the ArGo over the Solo 2 or Air 2 is that the glass mouthpiece is retractable. That means it's the first Arizer vaporizer that you can throw in your pocket. Just keep in mind that there are glass pieces so don't knock it around too much.
With its bright digital display, the ArGo is super easy to use. Set your temperature at your choice up to 220° Celsius, wait around 30 seconds and you're good to go. Just be careful because it gets a little hotter than the Solo or Air.
The battery life is pretty good and clock in at around an hour and a half of use. That's long enough for a few sessions and it even has replaceable batteries if you have a weekend out of town. It also features pass-through charging so you can juice it up while using it.
Overall, the ArGo is an awesome little portable vaporizer that delivers the outstanding vapor you expect from Arizer.
5. Dynavap 2019 M
The NEW 2019 M from Dynavap is among the best herb vaporizers in the market under $100.
It is made of 100% medical grade stainless steel and is designed to deliver a powerful, yet simple experience. This butane vaporizer doesn't require a battery, it heats with a butane torch or lighter. It features a mouthpiece, removable tip, and condenser tube. The Dynavap 2019 M is one of the best vaporizers in Canada.
