If you need to vaporize your herbs while at a park, camping or somewhere power outlets aren’t available, a portable vaporizer might be for you. Fortunately many models of portable vaporizers have come on to the market within the last few years. Some models use butane fuel, a rechargeable battery, or holding a lighter to a glass tube. Lets take a look at a few of the top portable vaporizers below.
Top Battery Operated Vaporizers
Top spot for best battery operated vaporizer goes to Ploom’s Pax Vaporizer. Some of the highlights are, Overall quality of construction, 10 year warranty, super fast 30 second start up, efficient vaporization of herbs, long battery life with quick recharge, and small size.
Second Place for top portable vaporizers is the Vapir NO2. Its battery operated and will last for 5 or 6 sessions. Extra batteries are available if you need some additional vaporizing time. Its a quality vaporizer with a great LCD temperature screen.
Top Butane Operated Vaporizers
The top butane vaporizer is the WISPR by Oglesby & Butler, which replaces the first generation Iolite. Many upgrades were given to the WISPR including:
- Richer Vapor Delivery
- Longer Run Time
- Fast Warm Up Time
- Quiet Vaporization
- and More
This cool little guy is small, and easy to conceal. It runs on butane so its easy to refill and keep vaporizing. It produces a decent vapor considering its size and the fact it uses butane.
This is the first generation portable vaporizer manufactured by Oglesby & Butler. This unit has since been upgraded by the WISPR, although it’s still a great little vaporizer and recommended if you can get one for a good price.
Top Lighter / Flame Operated Vaporizers
The Essential VAAAPP
Ok, there are some pros and cons to this portable vaporizer. Its nice and small, very inexpensive, and easy to transport. On the downside, you have to use a lighter for temperature control.
This means its really easy to burn your herb, defeating the purpose of vaporizing. Overall, its pretty cool, and I like it.
