Identifying the Best Portable Vaporizers

There are tons of portable vaporizers on the market. The best of them are shown in this review. Thus, it is crucial to be able to tell the good ones from the bad. When picking out a pocket vape, there are few things in particular that a vaper should consider. The first is obviously their price range. For beginner vapers, finding a vape under $100 is usually best. This way, beginner vapers can use their first vaporizer to figure out what they like and do not like before investing more in a higher quality device. More experienced users who know exactly what they want their vaporizer to be able to do should invest in a higher priced vaporizer in order to get the best quality vapor.

Temperature

Regardless of the price of the vape, one of the most important qualities of a vaporizer to consider is its temperature range. Typically, it is best to find a device with an extremely wide range and precise TC. This way, a user can pick their favorite degree or range and stick to it. It is still okay if vaporizers have predetermined range options, but a vaper should check that these options are suited for optimizing their medium.

Compatibility of Mediums for Vaporizing

Vapers should know what they want their portable vape to be able to vaporize before purchasing it. Vapers who do not regularly vaporize one medium over another should choose a device that can heat all types of mediums. Vapers who are regularly and exclusively vaporizing juice, concentrate, or dry herb though will greatly benefit from a vaporizer that can vaporize their preferred medium though. Since they are specifically designed to vaporize one thing well, they will do a better job than a “one size fits all” vape at optimizing vapor.

Chamber Materials

When looking at chamber materials, there are the best ones and some awful ones. One of the best chamber materials of all time is ceramic. Ceramic is one of the best materials because it holds heat in almost a magic way. It will distribute it evenly throughout the medium in the chamber. As long as the medium is vaped at an appropriate temperature, it will also prevent the medium from ending up burnt. Some more of the best chamber materials include glass and high-quality stainless steel. Both of these make the best chamber list due to their high melting temperatures.

The number one material that should be avoided is plastic. Plastic can have numerous negative side effects on a vapers health should it accidentally be melted or burnt and inhaled. These side effects include breathing problems, damage to the immune system, and can even potentially cause cancer. While some plastics are engineered to have a high melting point, it is best to just avoid plastic heating chambers altogether. They may be cheap, but they may not be safe.

Is Convection or Conduction Heating Best?

Before a vaper decides whether they want convection or conduction heating, they first must understand what those are. Convection heating occurs when “warmer areas of a liquid or gas rise to cooler areas in the liquid or gas.” For liquids, in particular, it is often the best way to heat and vaporize. Conduction heating takes place when two objects of different temperatures meet– for example, dry herb and a ceramic chamber. “Heat flows from the warmer to the cooler object until they are both at the same temperature.” This is best for solid mediums than liquids or concentrates with a low viscosity. Vapers who want to effectively vaporize solids and liquids in the same device should seek out a mod with hybrid capabilities. Though these vaporizers are usually more expensive, they are often worth it.

Best Trustworthy Vaporizer Brands of 2019

Any of the brands of the best twelve vaporizers reviewed above can be trusted. Whether a vaper is ordering from Arizer, Storz & Bickel, Firefly, DaVinci, or any of the others, they can trust that they will get what they ordered. The best portable vaporizer brands can be identified in a variety of ways:

  • First, it is always a good idea to look to customer reviews for the truth. These can be found on the products’ home website, on YouTube, or even Reddit. Recognizable names are often recognizable for a reason– because they are quality and others have been satisfied with them.
  • One of the best ways to identify a good vape brand is to read review after review on reliable websites. A comprehensive review should cover the specifics of the vaporizer, such as ease of use. The review will help vape gods separate a decent vape from the best one. Some examples of good vapes and brands with the best reviews are the Mighty, Firefly, DaVinci, Pax, and Arizer.
  • Avoid brands that sell vaporizers for a price that is too good to be true. Additionally, avoid brands and sellers that sell knock-off versions of the best known and respected vaporizers. These products will likely be of bad quality and may even risk the safety of the user.

Picking the Best 2019 Portable Vaporizer

The hunt for the best vaporizer for a person is going to be unique to everyone. While all of the vaporizers in this review are great, there will be some that suit vaper’s individual needs better than others. When choosing the best vaporizer for them, people should consider their price range, needs, and preferences. Vapers should also check a vape’s battery life and charging time. Nobody wants a vape battery that cannot even last 30 minutes or a battery that takes longer than two hours to charge. Some extra little things to look for are replaceable batteries for extending a vape’s life, warranties, and protection features.

For example, a vaper who values vape battery life should look into the Pax 3. If they are looking to save some money, they can look at earlier versions of the Pax as well. Plus, according to the review, the Pax is great for inconspicuous vaping, and the Pax comes in classy colors. For a vaper who values versatility best though, the Mighty review should be given extra attention. Mighty vaporizers actually vaporize solids, concentrates, and liquids. Mighty vaporizers also boast high-quality vapor even though they have a one-size-fits-all design.

Additionally, the level of use that a vaper is at is important as well. The best device for a beginner to use is going to be a cheaper one with easier controls. The best device for an intermediate vaper is going to be a moderate price that a vaper can use to vape their preferred medium. The best vaporizer for an advanced vaper can be more expensive and difficult to use since it will have a wider variety of features, as stated in the review above.

Lastly, it is important to only buy vaporizers from the best reliable sources. If the brand name or buying location of the vaporizers is not recognizable or has bad reviews, it is best just to avoid the product. Finding the best vaporizer is not always easy. However, the best vape is out there for those who look hard enough!
