Every day, a stoner wakes up and knows they will be bombarded with yet another smoking gadget. Probably, said smoker only wished to carry around a joint and a lighter, without worrying about batteries, capsules, cleaning, and charging.

In this blog, we would love to change your mind with some portable vaporisers that will make your life easier (basically as easy as carrying your joint around in some cases) and slightly healthier compared to setting your buds on fire.

The Best Portable Vaporisers on the Market

If you are approaching the vaping world for the first time, it can quickly become overwhelming to decide which device is best suited for your needs (and pockets). After all, vape shops are saturated with products.

If you’re reading this article, we already know you are in the market for something light, easy to use, and extremely portable. So, we excluded any desktop or overly complicated device from our pool of choices. Then, we continued on our quest by adding specifics that we believe will help you experience your buds (or concentrates) in the easiest, tastiest way possible.

How to Choose the Best Vaporiser for Use on the Move

First, we suggest you look around the gadgets you already own to decide which direction you should go. Do you like convection or conduction ovens? Do you prefer dry herbs or concentrates? Perhaps you need a device that can hold your stash while you carry it around, or you require pre-made pods because loading it up on the bus is not an option.

All of these characteristics will ensure you purchase exactly the model you need, and most vape shops are equipped with filters to make the choice even easier! We applied the same method to our own research and came up with the three of the best portable vaporisers on the market, plus a fourth bonus vape at the end. Let’s have a look!

Multiple Temperature Settings to Suit All of Your Needs

The first factor we decided to include is temperature controls. Some might believe that in order to achieve top performance and customisation, you need a bulky desktop device with a huge LED screen. Well, we beg to differ.

  • Pax 3 Special Edition — Endless Temperature Settings

The Pax 3 Special Edition can remember up to 75 settings, ensuring all of your different sessions are just a click away. Plus, the app will suggest the best temperature to experience every compound in your herbs. Bonus? You can engage in Party Mode, which will lower the temperature slightly to make sure the herbs don’t burn during longer vaping sessions. And, if your vaping party turns into an actual party, the Pax 3 turns into a glow stick! Nothing to do with vaping, but cool nonetheless! The embossed RQS logo will show your support for your favourite seedbank too!

  • AirVape XS GO — 5 Simple Settings

If 75 settings feels overwhelming, perhaps 5 is more up your alley? The AirVape XS GO is another great option. The cheapest of the bunch (in price, not in quality), this vape is extremely light and portable. Similar to the Pax 3, it heats up in under 20 seconds, so you can start vaping as soon as you step out of the train.

  • Flowermate Aura — The Best of Both Worlds

Somewhere in between the previous two offerings, we have the Flowermate Aura. This vape pen bears the quality mark of the Flowermate family while fitting comfortably in the pocket. Manufactured with medical grade materials, the screen allows you to select the exact temperature you require (within a range of 40–230°C) with the precision of single digits. You can read more about ideal vaping temperatures and which compounds can be experienced at different temperature settings.

Dry Herbs, Concentrates, or Both?

Perhaps the most important variable when it comes to vaping devices, the way you consume your cannabis is vital in deciding how to spend your money.

  • Dry Herb Only — AirVape XS GO

If dry herbs are all you’ll ever vape, the AirVape XS GO will get the job done with no fuss. Ideal for loose-leaf vaping, this device will fit snugly in your hand thanks to its ergonomic shape. The combination of both conduction and convection technology will heat your herbs evenly. Every hit will be rich and smooth, and, if you run out of battery, the device will recharge in less than 45 minutes!

  • Herbs and Concentrates — Pax 3 Special Edition & Flowermate Aura

If you enjoy both flowers and concentrates, like waxes and oils, you will be happy to know that both the Pax 3 and Flowermate Aura allow you to do so. The Pax 3 has a completely different concentrates insert, while the Aura comes with a liquid/wax pod (as well as a dry herb pod). This way, the vape can match whatever mood or need you have for that specific day.

Think About Your Budget

Last, but not least, the price of the device is extremely important. It’s your hard-earned money we’re talking about, and this is an important purchase for every user. While nothing beats the affordability of smoking papers, there are some portable vaporisers that will cost you less than €70 while upgrading your cannabis experience in a way smoke could never achieve!

  • More Affordable — AirVape XS GO & Flowermate Aura

The AirVape XS GO can be yours for as little as €59, while adding 10 euros can give you the choice between vaping dry herbs or concentrates with the top-tier Flowermate Aura.

  • Premium Option — Pax 3 Special Edition

If you are willing to spend a little more, the Pax 3 costs €249. Some vapes can cost up to €600, and for the quality you get with this Pax 3 Special Edition, we believe it’s absolutely worth every penny. Sometimes, you just can’t put a price on an experience!

Vaping With Just a Lighter? It’s Possible!

We don’t want to fool you; all of these vaporisers feature one thing that is slightly annoying at best, and impairing at worst: a battery! Yes, every single one of the above vaporisers needs to be charged. While the quality of the batteries, the technology, and the charging time are among the best you can find in the industry, if you forget to charge them or pack the cable, you might end up with no vape at all.

  • Introducing the DynaVap VapCap M

This is where the DynaVap VapCap M comes to the rescue. This vape pen is completely digital technology-free. Using both conduction and convection heating, this device will heat your dry herb perfectly. A lighter is all you need! The position of the flame will decide how hot you heat your herb, and the improved air channel will deliver powerful hits every single time.
