This is our current top pick for the best dry herb vaporizer in 2022 (portable).


#1 Top Pick: Mighty+*Strong vapor, very consistent, easy to use, USB charging

The Mighty+ is a very, very good vaporizer. If performance and consistency are your main priorities then this vape should be at the top of your list.

The Crafty+ and Mighty+ share a lot of the same qualities and have many similarities, but one of the main differences is their physical size. The Crafty+ is the “pocket-able” version of the two. Both models however are extremely easy to use and don’t require any special hand or finger dexterity to load.

We consider this one more of a cordless home vape than a true pocket vape, but it is still portable nonetheless and the larger size gives it some advantages like extended battery life.



Best Pocket Vaporizer

If portability is the top feature on your list, check out the DaVinci IQC. This little vape packs a punch with some smooth vapor. The aluminum chassis is durable, and it features pre made smart paths as well as full temperature control. The removable 18650 battery is perfect for on the go, as you can easily swap it out if you can’t find a charger.

We love how well it fits into our pockets, and we would recommend it to any vaper looking for a great session vape when they leave the house. It easily can be described as the best pocket vaporizer on the market.

Portable Vaporizer with Best Battery Life

If you’re looking for a portable vaporizer with the best battery life, the Arizer Solo 2 is the one you need. The stems are easily swappable, and the battery life lasts all day. The Solo 2 reaches max temp in about 30 seconds. You can easily adjust the temperature using the up and down arrows on the front of the device. It uses a DC charger for fast charging the efficient battery.

The aluminum body of the Arizer Solo 2 vaporizer is extremely durable, and the size is perfect. It comes with pass through charging and a 2 year warranty.




The Stacheproducts RiO makeover is a fantastic all in one rig. It comes with everything you need to start enjoying solid concentrates. The glass body fits perfectly into the molded plastic base, which houses a torch. The stock quartz banger on the RiO makeover has a core that helps hold heat. Perfect for cold start uses, it’s extremely portable and even comes with its own carry case.

It’s a heavy hitter, and brings us back to our roots. We love how flavorful every concentrate is through the device. Don’t forget to clean out glass! We recommend removing the glass by grabbing the base. Don’t grab the mouthpiece, you will risk breaking it. It’s definitely the best concentrate vaporizer we’ve used so far.




The VapCap M is a classic at this point. Originally developed in 2017, there have been quite a few updates to the lineup. Dynavap has even introduced color variants that truly shine. Our favorite is the Rosium Vapcap M 2021. Whether you prefer to use a butane cigar torch, or an Induction Heater, the 2021M is incredibly efficient.

It’s one of the smallest vaporizers we’ve tested. It is the smallest butane vaporizer we’ve used and our favorite butane vaporizer currently offered online.




DaVinci IQC

The best smart vaporizer is the DaVinci IQ2. Complete with an app, you can track your dosage per draw and per session. It features full temperature control, as well as a removable 18650 battery. This vaporizer is designed for connoisseurs. It allows you to control every aspect of your session, including the airflow using the adjustable dial.

I has smart path technology allowing you to enjoy sessions based on a set of preset temperatures that increase throughout the length of the session. The brushed aluminum body is absolutely stunning and looks great next to Apple products.

The 51 dimmable LED’s on the front of the vaporizer can show either temperatures or which smart part you’re on. Easily switch between smart path and temperature control by pressing the power button once on the DaVinci IQ2 vaporizer.




The best vapor quality comes from the FireFly 2+ vaporizer. The vapor is smooth, potent, and flavorful. The Firefly 2 plus is an on demand vaporizer, meaning you heat it up for each inhale. Most vaporizer are session vapes, which tends to add heat to the vapor. The vapor path of the FireFly 2+ is extremely large, with a huge surface area. This helps allow for extremely smooth vapor as it gives ample time for the vapor to cool.

Using the app you can set the temperature for the FF2+. Tune it to your liking. Personally we love using ours around 380F. The vapor is still smooth, and there is plenty of it. We pack around .25g of dry herb in ours. It can also be used with a little bit of solid concentrate by adding a concentrate pad to the chamber.




The Pax 3 is the best vaporizer under $200. The Pax 3 Basic kit comes in at $199 and is ready to be used out of the box. Featuring a 1 button control system we love how simple it is to pass to a friend to use. It’s small, sleek, and reminds us of the IPhone design. It uses 4 preset temperatures, and a pretty large chamber. We like using a fine grind, you can turn your grinder upside down to get a fine grind. Pack the Pax 3 chamber tight and you’ll have a great session.

The Pax 3 magnetic charger uses USB and is very easy to take with you on the go. Perfectly pocketable, and easy to use, we love taking the Pax 3 with us for portable sessions.




The Healthy Rips Fury EDGE is a well loved vaporizer under $150. We consider the Fury EDGE to be the best vaporizer under $150. Smooth vapor, and an efficient chamber combined with the easy to use technology has us in love with this vape. It charges via USB-C and allows for full temperature control.

The Fury EDGE is a step between the Fury 2 and ROGUE vaporizer in size, and battery life. We love how it packs a punch with such a small bowl yet has great battery life.

If you’re looking for longer sessions or a bigger chamber to share with friends we would recommend taking a step up to the Healthy Rips ROGUE




The Xmax Starry V3 is the best portable vaporizer under $100. The large oven, replaceable 18650 battery, and small size are some of the best features in a vape under $100. It’s incredibly easy to use, and the chamber is held on by a magnet. This means when it gets dirty, it’s still easy to remove.

The Starry v3 holds 0.5g of ground material and is surprisingly efficient. We’ve had ours since release, and haven’t managed to break it. Even with frequent hiking, mountain biking, and skiing.




The best cheap portable vaporizer is the xmax v2 pro by far. We’ve seen it go for around $60 with a coupon code over the last couple of years. It uses a 18650 battery, and has 5 preset temperatures. Super easy to pack, just shove some dry herb in the chamber after grinding it.

Before you use it, remove the plastic tab covering the battery. It’s there to protect it during shipping, but will prevent you from turning it on. Charge the battery to full, and you’re good to go. We recommend taking long slow draws with the xmax v2 pro vaporizer.

  • Hi, would like to learn about the best and cheapest pen-vaporizer with the two important features: really (!) easy to clean and on demand mode. Who can name it?

  • I bought a Flowermate 5.0 and was really disappointed to find that you can’t toggle it on to draw and hold/off while inhaling to not have it burn up your herb by the time you’re ready to take a third draw. Is there something I’m missing here?
    I’ve had many pocket and travel sized convection vaporizers that only heat the herbs when you engage the heat/battery button. Is this option missing from this otherwise beautiful, convenient, and quality made product? Would love input.

  • I recently purchased an Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer and I’m very happy with my purchase. This vaporizer has amazing vapor production and great temperature control. It’s easy to use and clean, and the digital display makes it simple to adjust settings. The balloon system is a great way to enjoy the vapor without having to draw from a tube. All in all, I’m very pleased with my purchase!

  • You should review the XMax V3 Pro. Though not quite perfect by my standards, it comes closest of any vaper I’ve tried. I’m not a constant heavy hitter, so I don’t need huge showy clouds. My top priorities in roughly descending order are convection oven, removable stainless steel pods or dosing capsules, reasonable price, fairly fine temp control, large enough swappable battery, pocketability, cleaning ease, comfort in the hand, clear and simple controls, rapid heating, USB C charging. This vaper meets all of those objectives, and it’s the most efficient vape extractor I’ve used. I would never willingly use anything but a full convection oven that fit removable pods. With them, the oven never needs cleaning. After six months of use, I still haven’t needed to do an alcohol cleaning. A couple times I’ve scraped the oily buildup from inside the (cheaply replaceable) mouthpiece ceramic heat exchanger. That stuff is condensed vapor, just the same as RSO or other concentrates, so why throw it away? So far, this has been very reliable and easy to use.
    Only minor complaints: 1) The battery compartment cover is flimsy, not-quite-flush-fitting, and comes off too easily. A latch would be better than the magnetic closure. I don’t need to swap batteries if I charge it every 2-3 days. 2) The magnet-attached mouthpiece also comes off too easily in a pocket if you’re at all active. 3) It’s too slippery. Some textured grippable surface would be worth detracting from the sleek, modern finish. 4) It lacks a carrying case option. I found a drawstring bag that works perfectly, but a harder case or at least some kind of mouthpiece cover would be better.

  • Hey, these details about products are amazing. I was a bit confused between different products but now I am gonna buy Davinci IQ2. With its advanced heating and easy-to-handle design, I think it’s a great fit. Plus, it falls in my budget.

  • Lol kandypens is falsely claiming that you said they were in your best of 2022 for this category. I automatically don’t trust them now.
