by Katie Johnson
What is a Portable Vaporizer?
Portable vaporizers are increasingly becoming a favorite tool for tobacco and dry herbs. As their popularity increases, so does the availability. New vaporizers are being introduced to the market seemingly every day, and while some of the tools feature a classic design, others swap out functionality for a bit of flashiness. The problem is that when you are looking for a portable vape, especially if you are new to vaping, it is hard to know the difference between what works and what is unnecessary.
Factors into choosing a Portable Vaporizer?
There are several factors that you ought to look at when considering the purchase of a new portable vaporizer. This includes the price point, the durability of the item, the ease of concealment and portability, and finally the overall quality of the vaporizer itself, including the smoothness, temperature and taste of the dry herbs.
Before you head out to the store, do your research and know what you are looking for ahead of time. Here is a quick breakdown of 5 of the best portable vaporizers for dry herb that are currently on the market:
Consistently rated one of the top choices in portable vaporizers for 2017, the crafty vaporizer is a bit on the higher-end of the budget options but it delivers a top-quality experience that makes it worth the extra cash. This is the newest addition to the Storz and Bickel product line. The crafty features an extremely subtle and portable design that is easy for on-the-go use, easily fitting in a pocket or even in the palm of your hand. Battery life is dependent on a charger, but the micro USB makes it as easy to charge as your cell phone. The Crafty Vaporizer is available for $279.
V2 Pro Series 7
The V2 Pro Series is just about always making a top 10 list, but the 7 is good enough for the top five. A bit more affordable than some of its counterparts, the V2 Pro Series is an ideal on-the-go vape option for someone who is not looking to break the bank. This vape perfectly handles dry herb, wax, or oil, and is small enough to easily fit in your hand or pocket.

This is a pure convection vaporizer that produces a quality vaping experience, with five different temperature settings, the ability to handle dry herbs and concentrates, and incredible ease of use. One of the reasons the Firefly 2 is so sought after is due to its battery life alone. The Firefly 2 comes with two replaceable and rechargeable batteries that make it easy to take this vape off the grid for hours on end without disruption.

The device also comes with a 10 year warranty and one replaceable battery. The DaVinci IQ can be found for $274.99.
Despite being often looked at as a mini-vape, and so not considered a primary vaporizing option, the Pax 3 handles like a vaporizer twice its size, capable of producing a decent amount of flavorful vapor. One of the best features of the model is its App integration. The vape itself is easy to use and can work at just about any temperature, from 200 to 428 Fahrenheit. The App makes it easy to set your default preferences, but then to change those preferences easily with just a few touches.
