Top 10 Best Portable Vaporizers For Beginners
One of the questions we are asked most frequently is ‘what are the best portable vaporizers for beginners’? Our answers do change from time to time, but usually our response remains constant. Most newbie vape users tend to be looking for an affordable, user-friendly device that has a decent amount of features, a battery that they don’t have to constantly charge, and something that provides them with value. You might think it’s a bit of a task to meet all of these requirements, but we’ve narrowed it down to the top ten portable vaporizers that fit the criteria as of right now. These ten aren’t necessarily in any particular order, just ten that we think are the best at the time of this writing. There are pros and cons of each. If you’re new to the vaporization world and are looking for the best option, you’ve come to the right place.
1) Utillian 420
The Utilian 420’s battery lasts about an hour of continuous usage, which is an impressive time for a unit that is under $100. This model is simple to operate, with only one button and a digital display that anyone can understand. It also heats up in 20 seconds. As an added bonus, it looks like a cool little metal flask and is easily concealed for discreet toking. You really can’t beat the functionality, or the vapor quality, discreet nature and sleek design of the Utilian 420 – especially for such an affordable price.
2) Pulsar APX
The APX dry herb vape is one of the most affordable units on the market today. It also looks cool, with your choice of several different exterior designs to choose from. The APX lasts about an hour or so on a single charge and takes about two hours to fully juice up. Just pack up your dry herb and put the silicone mouthpiece back on, then press the single button five times to power it up. It heats up in about 30-50 seconds, depending on which of the three temperatures you selected. When it’s ready for you to take a hit, it will vibrate to let you know so there’s no guesswork. Newbies sometimes ask why five button presses, and the reason is because sometimes you might accidentally press the button while it’s stashed in your pocket, so the five button presses avoids any unwanted usage. You won’t get thick clouds from the APX, more like wispy ones that dissipate quickly. This is not for a user that prefers milky rips, but is perfect for those looking to be as discreet as possible and avoid unwanted attention.
3) Boundless CFC
The Boundless CFC also lasts for an hour of continuous usage and costs less than $150. It takes less than 2 hours to fully charge, which is a nice feature. The temperatures up and down buttons are basically self-explanatory. Even though you can’t remove the battery, it still lasts most users at least a few years. A unit that is made entirely from plastic turns off some experienced vape users, but that really doesn’t degrade the vapor quality of the device as much as you might think. Most users who are new to vaporization seem to find the unit meets or exceeds their expectations.
4) Atmos Vicod 5G
The Vicod 5G is another high quality vape a low price of under $150. This unit goes from completely dead to fully charge in under two hours and lasts an impressive 90 minutes of continuous usage. The 5G portable vaporizer heats up in a quick 30 seconds, and its rubber finish is comfortable in your hand and make the unit durable. The OLED display on this unit is attractive and anyone can easily read it. After you use the 5 G for the first session out of the box, it will remember what temperature you last vaped at and automatically heat itself up to that same temperature the next time you turn it on. Of course, you can disable this feature if you prefer as well. The unit is intended for use mainly with dry herbs, but it also comes with an accessory that you can use with concentrates. It also comes with a 5-year warranty, which is well above average for the price point.
The FocusVape offers some of the thickest clouds at this price point of under $150. Its battery can be replaced, which is a nice feature. Most users get at least an hour of continuous use out of their FocusVape. Its OLED display is bright, simple to understand and a no-brainer to operate. Most of the unit is pretty durable, although the glass mouthpiece can break if you’re careless. You can also vape with the unit while it’s charging.
6) Exxus Mini
The Exxus Mini is simple to use – just press the button 5 times and wait for it to heat up. The Exxus Mini is one of the tiniest, most compact vapes on the market today – and might just be the smallest. It lasts about 90 minutes of continuous use, which is impressive for a unit as small as it is. The vapor quality is about what you’d expect at a price tag of around $150, and most users with realistic expectations have no complaints in that department. Since it is so small, it can tend to get very hot in your hand after a few tokes, so just be careful of that if you do end up buying one.
7) Zeus Smite Plus
The Zeus Smite Plus is a bit pricier than the other vaporizers on this list, but is still affordable at under $200, but you do get considerably more with this one. Like the other vapes on this list, the Smite Plus heats up after pressing the side button five times. Unlike the other vapes, the temperature controls are precise and exact; as you can pick whatever temperature you want, right down to the degree – anywhere from 40 to 220 degrees Celsius. A top-notch three hour battery life puts this one in a class of its own even further. The Smite Plus is a breeze to clean, as only the removable heating chamber tends to get dirty.
8) G Pen Pro
Right around $150, the G Pen Pro is another great choice for newbies. The G Pen Pro charges up in about two hours and lasts about 40 minutes until you need to recharge again. The G Pen Pro is another unit that is one of the most discreet and compact on the market today. The device heats up in 30 seconds after five button presses, and has three preset temperature options. Vaping at the highest temperature with your G Pen Pro might cause some harshness. As long as you keep your vape rips low and slow with this unit, you shouldn’t have any complaints about the vapor quality, though.
9) Magic Flight Launch Box
The Launch Box has what might be the fastest heat up time of any portable vaporizer on the market, of about five seconds. Priced under $160, you will be hard pressed to find a device with this level of sleekness, ease of use and tasty vapor hits. The exterior of the Launch Box is made from really attractive wood, and comes in your choice of three different classy looking colors. To add even more value, it comes with a lifetime warranty.
10) Cloud Pen 3 Vaporizer
The shape of the Cloud Pen 3 definitely lives up to its name; it closely resembles a writing pen – which is absolutely ideal for tokes that are discreet as possible. It is perhaps the most customizable on this list when it comes to aesthetics, as you can choose from about a dozen different colors. It even comes with three different atomizers so you can try each one and pick the atomizer that is the best fit for the way you like to vape. It is what’s known as a direct draw vaporizer, so it heats up almost immediately as soon as you inhale. You can also vape either waxy concentrates or dry herbs with the Cloud Pen 3.
