Top 10 Dry Herb Vaporizers for 2021!
With 2021 right around the corner, we figure we’d compile a list of the best dry herb vaporizers around! These devices will be in different categories, including desktop, best budget vaporizers, and most powerful.
Without further ado, here’s our list of what we feel are the best dry herb vaporizers for the upcoming year!
Storz & Bickel Crafty+ and Mighty
For what seems like the 5th year in a row, both the Mighty and Crafty+ vapes by legendary Storz & Bickel will be topping the charts. Unbeatable? Perhaps. We’re starting to think that nothing out there can match their ease of use, performance, and form factor.
The Crafty+ is their latest release and quite a pleasure, though we’d personally pick the Mighty if battery life and improved temperature control are things you desire.
You couldn’t go wrong with either as they have top notch vapor quality, terrific engineering, and a reputation of which few companies in the world can boast about.
- Super easy to use and consistent
- Top shelf vapor quality
- Durable, rugged, and reliable
- Dosing capsules
Zeus Arc GT
The Zeus Arc GT is a top-notch portable dry herb vape that is designed for taking everywhere. Taking up less real estate than something like the Crafty+, the Zeus Arc GT even edges out the DaVinci IQ and Arizer Go as our favorite small and portable herb vaporizer. Feature-rich with plenty of power and strong battery life, the Zeus Arc GT is a solid no-frills and easy portable herb vape.
While it has relatively limited temperature control options and a non-removable battery, it punches above its weight class with the vapor it produces. Haptic feedback, a very small size, and frequent firmware updates are some of the fun features packed inside. While it’s not the heaviest hitter overall and the flavour is good for a conduction vaporizer, the small size may offset those concerns.
If you’re looking for a small and simple portable dry herb vape which can kick fairly hard, the Zeus Arc GT is a great one to consider. The battery life is a strong suit and beats the Crafty+ outright.
- Very small and compact, great very portable herb vape
- Strong battery life
- Frequent firmware updates keep the device modern
- Conduction Heating System
- Limited Temperature Control Options
Assembled by hand by a Swiss legend, the Tubo Evic/TetraX by Lamart has by far the best vapor quality of any dry herb vaporizer. The extremely powerful convection heater can extract a huge bowl in a quick moment with incredible flavour and huge clouds. The removable batteries ensure you have juice for days and there is really no better option if you want the best portable dry herb vaporizer.
With that being said, it’s quite bulky and not exactly portable like the Crafty+. It’s better for at-home use. They take quite a while to build as well and if you get the TetraX, you’ll need to buy and configure a separate box mod. It’s definitely with it however and the Tubo Evic brings desktop power to the portable world.
If you’re able to get your hands on one, it’s a true powerhouse and worth the wait. We love artisan vapes like this and it kicks like a mule. For beginners, it might not be the best choice however, unless you’re fine with tinkering.
- Best of the best vapor quality – extremely potent and flavourful
- Removable 18650 batteries
- Handmade with love from Switzerland and very unique
- Lacks portability
The new Utillian 722 houses a powerful convection heater which can come close to rivaling some of the more expensive and powerful units on the market. A strong battery life, simple operation, and compact design make it a solid overall unit. While the temperature control is limited and still uses Micro-USB to charge, these downsides are overshadowed by the price to performance ratio.
The bowl is fairly large, it’s very easy to use, and the vapor quality is very satisfying. It feels nice in the hand and all in all it’s the best vaporizer Utillian has made thus far.
The stealth black design and e-cig-like shape makes it a good stealthy herb vaporizer, it heats up in a quick 30 seconds, and really we can’t find many complaints with it. It’s a little larger than most but still fine to take out anywhere you go. For a good portable convection dry herb vaporizer, the Utillian 722 is a solid one to consider.
- Powerful convection heater + good-sized bowl for great hits
- Stealthy black design
- Good battery life
- Micro-USB and non-removable battery
The new Volcano Hybrid really can knock your socks off. The large chamber, legendary Storz & Bickel build quality, and incredible hybrid heater makes the Volcano Hybrid second to none. Pump out dense and flavourful balloons or use a whip for a direct draw. While the vapor quality and build quality are immense, so is the size and price tag.
There’s a reason why Storz & Bickel and their Volcano vapes are widely popular. They just work so well and for satisfying a whole crowd, you’ll have a hard time finding a vape able to pull off the task as well as the Volcano can.
The Volcano Hybrid is strictly for at-home use and the size won’t have you easily moving it from room to room. The price tag also makes it one of the most expensive dry herb vaporizers around, and that alone makes it quite exclusive.
You get what you pay for however and very few devices can even come close to the sheer power that is the Volcano Hybrid. We think many would be comfortable in crowning the Volcano Hybrid as the best dry herb vaporizer ever made.
- Incredible vapor quality
- Top-notch build quality
- Huge chamber for parties and group sessions
- Very expensive
- Large, bulky, best to leave in one place
Arizer Extreme Q
If the Volcano Hybrid seems to be right up your alley but the price tag is a few multiples more than you can afford, then the Arizer Extreme Q might be the perfect device. Also with the option to use it with balloons, a whip, or direct draw, the Arizer Extreme Q has plenty of versatility alongside a powerful convection heater, large bowl, and healthy price tag.
Arizer is a very reputable Canadian brand and all of their units are of high quality. Simple and effective, all of their units are a good choice and we’d recommend looking at the Arizer portable vapes as well.
Of course being a desktop unit it requires the use of a wall plug, but it’s a good magnitude easier to carry around than the Volcano Hybrid. With such a good price tag for the quality of vapor you’re getting, it’s hard to find any device that performs better than the EQ. If you want a top-class experience and do most of your use at home, then the Arizer Extreme Q is a solid choice.
- Powerful convection heater for great vapor quality
- Reliable Arizer reputation and build quality
- Versatile and great for group sessions – balloons, whip, or direct draw
- Requires a wall socket
- Not the most attractive
Dynavap M 2020
Usually touted as the best budget dry herb vaporizer around, the Dynavap M 2020 is a unique little device. Using no batteries and a torch lighter to heat it up instead. The Dynavap M 2020 hits surprisingly hard with very little material used. It’s very small and makes for a great portable dry herb vape with its convenient, smell-proof carrying container.
People really enjoy the Dynavap for the joint-like experience and how customizable they are. Referred to as ‘stoner Lego’, people enjoy tinkering with them and end up getting more than one.
Using it out on the go may be hard, as torching it to heat up takes some time and may look strange to the public eye. This definitely takes away the discreetness factor and ultimately hurting portability. Having a quick session in less than 30 seconds is super easy, however, and the low price and great build quality also make it appealing.
Completely made in America, the Dynavap M is surely one of the best budget dry herb vaporizers around. The cult-like following it has speaks for itself.
- Very small, sized like a joint
- Fun to use
- Terrific price to performance ratio
- Hard to use in public
- Has a moderate learning curve
Healthy Rips Fury Edge
Sequel to the ever loved Healthy Rips Fury 2, the Fury Edge ticks all the marks to be one one of the best portable dry herb vaporizers. While it doesn’t quite keep up with the big dogs in performance and features, it’s one of the best choices in the price range it’s at. USB-C charging, haptic feedback, a powerful hybrid heater, and good vapor quality make it a terrific unit.
If you’re in Canada the Fury Edge is a little harder to get a hold of then we highly recommend the Utillian 620 which is very similar and even has certain features that the Fury Edge lacks.
The full temperature control lets you perfectly dial in your session and the improved battery life lets you have a good handful of sessions before running flat. The matte black design and small size make it a great stealthy dry herb vape and it heats up very quickly, allowing you to have a quick session whenever.
- Portable, solid stealthy dry herb vape
- The hybrid heater gives great vapor quality
- Feature-rich with USB-C, haptic feedback, temperature control, etc.
- Small bowl size
- Non-removable battery
Arizer Solo 2
We’ve brought back the Arizer Solo 2 for this one even if it was missing from our best dry herb vapes 2020 list. The reason being that it’s just so reliable, has incredible battery life, and is very simple to use.
On the more portable side, the Arizer Air 2 offers a similar experience and instead uses a removable 18650 battery, if that’s your thing. Regardless, all the Arizer units are built well, simple to use, and have great vapor quality.
- Phenomenal battery life
- Top-notch build quality
- Delightful vapor
- Bowl size is on the smaller side
Art of Vapor – VapBong
Gently yet quickly taking vapor connoisseur’s hearts by storm, the VapBong by Art of Vapor goes against all trends and uses seemingly simple technology in a brilliant way.
Entirely handmade from ceramic, the VapBong boasts an enormously powerful convection heater, gigantic bowl, and one-of-a-kind experience. If you’re a canna lover who wants the absolute best of the best desktop experience around, you’d be well looked after by the VapBong.
While the form factor initially seems a touch strange or strange, we simply can’t get over how incredible this device is. We had to include it on the best dry herb vapes of 2021 list as it’s one of the best vaporizers we’ve ever had the pleasure to use!
- Outrageously powerful convection heater
- Enormous bowl fits 0.1-2.5g of flower
- Incredible build quality and function
- Phallic form factor
Some of these devices didn’t quite make the cut but are awesome in their own regards. While we’re certain one of the above devices will grab your attention, perhaps check out one of the below for some more inspiration:
The Sticky Brick Lineup
The Sticky Brick OG, Flip Brick, Jr, Runt, Hydrobrick/Maxx are all great, hit like a truck, and are fun to use! Attractive cuts of wood are shaped into a brick-type shape and pack a mean punch. Using a butane torch like the Dynavap, the Sticky Brick has a steep learning curve and isn’t best for beginners. We recommend the Sticky Brick to experienced users only. Definitely worth it if you want some more wood in your life.
510 herb vaporizers
If you already have an e-cig box mod and are familiar with how they work, a 510 herb tank might be your best bet. Units like the RBT Splinter, MistVape Imp, ModPodLabs StemPod, Dreamwood Glow, and Lamart TetraX are incredible devices when configured properly. There’s a steep learning curve to set most of these up have the capacity to even outperform vapes twice as expensive.
Healthy Rips Fury 2/Grindhouse Shift/POTV One/Sutra Mini
A little bit older now and brother to the Fury Edge, the Fury 2 and similar designs are still great little devices and truly tiny. Though the battery life is rather weak, they’re extremely portable and stealthy dry herb vapes. They hit hard with their strong hybrid heater and make a lot out of a little herb. They can be found at great prices now and definitely still worth it.
These vapes in our mind are the best dry herb vapes around which are relatively available and perform reliably. Though there are countless other high-quality units out there and it was a tough task to narrow it down into a top 10 best dry herb vapes list.
