Best Portable Vaporizers 2024

Before you go out and buy a dry herb vaporizer because it’s popular, I implore you to explore this helpful guide to portable vaporizers I’ve put together below. My collection of vaporizers is unrivaled, and my vape reviews are the most trusted content in the community.

These dry herb vaporizers are the best portable vapes on my shelf.

S-Tier: Portable Vaporizers

These S-Tier vaporizers are the best of the best. These vapes offer a high-end vaping experience without compromise.

Arizer Solo 3

Arizer Solo 3 - #1 Best Portable Dry Herb Vaporizer

Arizer Solo 3

New for 2024 – the Arizer Solo 3 is one of the best new portable dry herb vaporizers available.

The Solo 3 is a versatile, agile vaporizer with an all-glass bowl and vapor path. It heats up in 15 seconds and is powerful enough to extract a bowl in just a few hits.

This vape can be used as an On-Demand vape or a session vape.

The $276 (after coupon) Solo 3 includes two glass stems and two glass water pipe adapters. Users can vape directly or through a bong.

I’ve rated the Solo 3 a 9.9, giving it the highest rating of any other portable vaporizer and the highest rated on this list.

See my full Solo 3 review to learn more about this amazing vape, or use code TROYTIME20 to pick it up from Arizer for $276.

Venty Vaporizer

Venty Vape Front 2
Venty Vaporizer

The Venty was released in October 2023 and has already proven itself as the ultimate portable herb vape. It has more airflow than any other portable dry herb vape, producing massive fluffy clouds of vapor with unrivaled comfort.

The Venty vape experience is remarkable, and this vape will be the vape that other vape makers will try to copy over the next ten years. See my full Venty Review

You can click here to pick up the Venty directly from Storz and Bickel ($449). This popular vape is also available from Planet of the Vapes.

Mighty+ Vaporizer

Mighty Plus Storz and Bickel Vaporizer
Mighty+ Plus Vaporizer

Mighty+ Vaporizer – The Mighty+ ($399) is my most used and most recommended portable dry herb vape. It’s easy to use and fun to share. The vapor is full, fluffy, and delicious, and the Mighty is easy to load, unload, and reload. The Mighty doesn’t have a replaceable battery. It has 2 internal 18650 batteries and will vape 8+ bowls per charge. Read more about the Mighty Plus in my Mighty vape review.

You can click here to check out the Mighty+ directly from Storz and Bickel ($399). I also recommend POTV ($319) as an authorized S&B retailer.

A-Tier Portable Dry Herb Vaporizers

The A-Tier vapes are not quite as amazing as the S-Tier vaporizers, but they are still very good with minimal compromises.

Tiny Might 2

TinyMight 2

Tinymight 2

The TinyMight 2 is a micro-sized powerhouse of a dry herb vape.

The TinyMight 2 is a full-convection vaporizer with both On-Demand and Session Mode. All other vaporizers in the S-Tier and A-Tier sections use a combination of conduction and convection heating.

This vaporizer heats up in about 10 seconds and can fully extract its bowl in 2 to 5 hits, depending on temperatures and draw style.

The TinyMight 2 has a removable 18650 battery and a built-in stir stick. It comes with a glass stem, a titanium stem, and a stainless steel ‘cooling unit’ that sits in the stem and holds the bowl screen.

This vape is smaller and more pocket-friendly than most while having massive vaping power.

To learn more, see my TinyMight review, or buy one from Planet of the Vapes for $349.

OG Mighty

Original Mighty Vaporizer
Original Mighty Vaporizer

OG Mighty – The Mighty OG ($349) reigned King of the Vapes until it was dethroned by the Mighty+ The Mighty OG has an aluminum bowl instead of ceramic coated and it uses a wall plug to charge instead of USB. The Mighty OG is the same great vaporizer as the Mighty+ but without USB-C charging and a nonstick ceramic bowl.

The OG Mighty retails for $349. Click here to pick it up directly from Storz and Bickel. Check out POTV ($279) as well.

Crafty+ Vaporizer

Crafty Plus Vaporizer
Crafty+ Plus Vaporizer

Crafty+ – I wasn’t really a fan of the Crafty until they updated the Crafty+ ($279) version to a better battery. I’d still rather carry the Mighty+ and have a few extra bowls worth of power and easy temp control, but the Crafty+ offers the same great vapor in a smaller-sized vape. Crafty+ packs the same perfect vapor as the Mighty+ but in a smaller, less-featured package.

You can click here to pick up the Crafty+ for $279 directly from Storz & Bickel. I also recommend POTV ($223), they are a Storz & Bickel authorized retailer.

Best Cheap Vaporizers

I get it, you’re on a budget. Being cheap doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice though! Below I will recommend the best cheap vaporizers to make sure you get a good product at a good price.

Dynavap B Series

Dynavap B Series
Dynavap B Series

Dynavap B – By far the best bang-for-your-buck vaporizer is the Dynavap. The new Dynavap B is a budget-friendly $49. The M is an all-stainless-steel vape that will last a lifetime. Or pick up the BB3 glass stemmed vapcap for an affordable all-glass vape that fits 14mm bongs natively.

If torch-powered portables aren’t for you and the Dynavap Induction Heaters aren’t your thing, there are still several cheap portables I recommend.

Read more about all the Dynavap models in my Dynavap Vaporizer guide.

You can click here to check out the entire lineup directly from Dynavap. POTV is also an authorized retailer.

Davinci Miqro-C

Davinci Miqro-C Vaporizer (Green)
Davinci Miqro-C Vaporizer (Green)

Davinci Miqro-C – The Davinci Miqro-C is a portable dry herb vape the size of a key fob! It offers Pax-like performance with a replaceable battery system for a mere $99. This is a little conduction vape with a tiny battery.

You can click here to pick up the Miqro-C directly from Davinci.

POTV One

POTV One Vaporizer
POTV One Vaporizer

POTV One – The POTV One ($99) can fit in the palm of your hand while simultaneously milking up a fat bong. Don’t let the size of this device fool you, the POTV One vaporizer features a 30-second heat-up time, a hybrid heating system, and precise temp control.

Read more in my POTV ONE review.

You can click here to check it out directly at POTV.

Best for Beginners

Portable vaporizers like the Xmax V3 Pro ($109) and POTV One ($99) are perfect for beginners and casual cannabis users. They are both pocket-friendly and come with everything you need to vape dry herbs. 

If you plan to vape daily, you’ll probably want to upgrade to a Mighty+ ($399), or a Pax Plus ($250) but the XMAX V3 Pro and the POTV One vaporizer will fit the needs of most beginner vaporizer enthusiasts.

XMAX V3 Pro (POTV)

XMAX POTV V3 Pro Vaporizer
XMAX POTV V3 Pro Vaporizer

XMAX V3 Pro – Upgrading in style, features, and performance – but still on a budget – the Xmax V3 Pro checks a lot of boxes at only $109. The XMAX V3 Pro also features a replaceable battery system but a much bigger battery. 

Check out my XMAX V3 Pro review for more info

You can click here to buy the XMAX V3 Pro from POTV.

Arizer ArGo

Arizer Argo
Arizer Argo

The Arizer Argo packs a massive value in a tiny package. This micro-sized dry herb vape is the size of a deck of playing cards and features an all-glass vapor path and a removable 18650 battery.

The ArGo is a fun vape to carry for on-the-go sessions. This badass little herb vape was originally $270 when it came out in 2017 but is now only $119 from PotV.

See my Arizer Argo review to learn more about this vape.

Potv LOBO

PotV Lobo for $139
Planet of the Vapes Lobo

PotV Lobo – Planet of the Vapes put a lot of work into this little vape! The Lobo has more power than most vapes in this size and price range. At only $159, the Lobo is a high-performance convection vaporizer with a removable battery and a glass cooling mouthpiece.

The Lobo is affordable enough to be budget-friendly and powerful enough to serve as a daily driver. The Lobo is great on a bong and Planet of the Vapes has a massive selection of cool glass options.
See my Lobo review for more info, or go straight to PotV and join the Wolf Pack. (Lobo means wolf)

Best Battery Life

Battery life is important if you plan to be away from a power source for more than a few bowls and that’s why I trust the Mighty+ and the Solo 2 vaporizers.

Venty

Venty Vape Front 1
Venty Vaporizer

Storz & Bickel nailed it with the Venty. This portable Volcano vaporizer has 2 internal batteries and will power through 10-14 bowls per charge!

The Venty has customizable battery-saving features as well as fast fast-charging USB-C. From completely dead, the Venty will charge to 80% in just 40 minutes and will be fully charged in an hour.

See my Venty Review to better understand why this vape is worth its $449 price tag.

Arizer Solo 2

Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer
Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer

Solo 2 – The portable vape with the best battery life is the Arizer Solo 2, it can vape 12+ bowls per charge and it’s charged via USB-C so you can even add a battery pack. 

The Solo 2 used to cost $300 and it was competitive with the Mighty. Now that it’s $135 it’s hard to ignore! The all-glass vapor path gives the Arizer Solo 2 an upper hand in the flavor department and the super large internal battery powers through about 13 bowls per charge. 

You can click here to pick up the Arizer Solo 2 directly from Arizer for $145. I also recommend POTV which has it for $135.

Mighty Plus

Mighty Plus Vaporizer

Mighty Plus – The upside to the Mighty+ vaporizer ($399) is the portability. While the Mighty+ is a decently-sized vaporizer, it will still fit safely in my pocket. The Solo 2 is a bit thicker and you need to take extra caution when storing the glass stem. The Mighty+ vapes 8-10 bowls per charge.

Both units charge via USB-C, feature easy-to-read displays, and are easy to operate. If I had to pick one, my vote would be the Mighty+ but purists will go for the all-glass vapor path of the Arizer Solo 2. Read more info in my Mighty Plus Review.

You can click here to check out the Mighty+ directly from Storz and Bickel ($399). I also recommend POTV ($319) as an authorized S&B retailer.

Arizer Air MAX

Arizer Air MAX Vaporizer
Arizer Air MAX Vaporizer

Air MAX – The Arizer Air MAX ($229) has the same great Arizer portable vaporizer benefits, plus a HUGE removable battery. The Air Max replaces the legendary Arizer Air 2. It’s a slim-style vape, similar to a vape pen with a glass stem. The removable 20650 battery is large enough to vape about 12 bowls per charge.

All of the Arizer portable vapes have essentially the same vapor with subtle feature differences. Click here to check out the Arizer Air MAX directly at Arizer($229). You can also check out Air MAX @ POTV ($199).

Best Conduction Vaporizers

Conduction vaporizers vape slower and heat your herb continuously. The effects from conduction vapes are typically more “stony” and sedative. Conduction vaporizers are meant for 5-15 minute sessions. Portable Conduction vapes are great for that heavier stone like smoking delivers.

Battery-powered conduction vapes like the Pax Plus and Davinci IQC are pocket-friendly and easy to hide but usually require longer sessions especially when compared to on-demand vaporizers.

Davinci IQ2

Davinci IQ2 Vaporizer Purple
Davinci IQ2 Vaporizer Purple

Davinci IQ2 / IQC – The all-metal body Davinci IQ2 and IQC are classy and powerful vapes with a removable battery for true portability. 

The Davinci IQC lacks adjustable airflow like the more intuitive IQ2 and the IQ2 also boasts better materials plus dosage tracking software built into the vape. 

I’m working on a lot of Davinci vaporizer content but for now, you can click here to check out the Davinci IQ2 directly from Davinci.

Pax Plus

Pax Plus Vaporizer
Pax Plus Vaporizer

Pax Plus / Pax Mini – The Pax vaporizers are extremely popular for their small size and easy interface. First-time vaporizer owners will appreciate the simple bowl and sippable robust vapor. The new Pax Plus and Pax Mini are the more pocket-friendly options in the category and offer excellent battery life for their size. 

Look for my Pax Plus / Pax Mini reviews soon. The Pax Plus retails for $250 and you can click here to pick it up directly from Pax Labs.

The Pax Mini is basically the same vaporizer minus a few features and overall the much better buy at $150. You can click here to see the Pax Mini directly at Pax Labs.

Best Butane Vapes

Butane vapes are great for disconnecting from the grid and getting high without batteries and plugs.

Dynavap Vaporizers

Dynavap M Series Vaporizer
Dynavap M Series Vaporizer

Dynavap – The Dynavap vaporizers ($49 – $200) are the most popular portable butane vaporizer because it offers a familiar interface. The Dynavap Vapcap loads like a one-hitter but vapes the weed instead of smoking it.

The Dynavap Vapcap is a must-have for any cannabis enthusiast or micro-doser. It provides a fun and familiar vaping method and an oddly satisfying experience. Check out my full Dynavap vaporizer review for more info and scroll down to see pricing and which model is best for you.

The Dynavap lineup runs from $49 for the B series, all the way up to $200 for the Dynavap Omni series. You can click here to check out the entire lineup directly from Dynavap. POTV is also an authorized retailer.

Which Dynavap is Right For You?

  • Start out with the Dynavap B if this is your first vape! It’s the simplest and the cheapest Dynavap model that uses a silicon stem and a stainless steel half-bowl. The Dynavap B holds as little as .01 or as much as .1g
  • The M is an all-stainless steel version with a larger bowl and more o-rings. It’s $30 more than the B and can hold twice as much in its bowl.
  • The Vong and BB stems are both compatible with bongs and bubblers. The Vong is better for carrying or traveling with its titanium crowns and wooden or titanium centerpieces.
  • BB glass stems come in a variety of sizes and colors for affordable at-home bong usage. These glass stems offer condenser-free vapor with an all-glass vapor path. They’re tasty, but the balls do gunk up fast.
  • The Omni is the most luxurious and lightest of the Dynavap vaporizers. It’s an all-titanium device with an adjustable airport and twisted condenser cooling. The Omni is my favorite Dynavap to carry.

Sticky Bricks

Sticky Brick OG Vaporizer
Sticky Brick OG Vaporizer

Sticky Brick – Vaporizers like the Sticky Bricks ($99 – $200) use the hot air from torch lighters as convection heat to vaporize your herbs. Sticky Bricks can hit hard and fast or soft and slow. They’re the quickest heating portable vaporizer and a true instant-on as they’re powered by a small butane torch.

Sticky Brick Vapes are hand-made in the USA out of responsibly harvested woods and borosilicate glass. The Runt and the Junior are my favorites in the lineup, but the OG is super fun to hit. If you plan to carry your vape, the Sticky Brick Jr is your best bet – it has a magnetic cover to protect the glass.

Check out my full Sticky Brick review for more info on all the different models. The suite runs from $99 for the Flip Brick, up to $200 for the Hydrobrick MAXX. You can click here to check out the Sticky Brick vaporizers at Planet of the Vapes.

Best On Demand Convection Vaporizers

If you’re looking for convection, you’re looking for flavor. These vapes deliver. Small, on-demand vaporizers like the Xmax V3 Pro and the TinyMight 2 are the most popular convection vapes. 

Tinymight 2 Vaporizer
Tinymight 2 Vaporizer

TinyMight 2 – The TinyMight 2 ($349) has a mild learning curve to use and master, but it’s worth it. I recommend picking up the glass WPA and an additional mouthpiece with an extra cooling unit.

You can click here to check out the Tinymight 2 from POTV, the only authorized retailer in the US.

While they may come close, very few portable convection vapes can compare to desktop vapes. Check out my best desktop vaporizers guide for some plug-in convection options or my ball vape guide for the heaviest hitting desktops.

I've been medicating with vaporizers, legally, since 2012. I started reviewing dry herb vaporizers and other cannabis products in 2015. I fell in love with creating content around vapes and cannabis vaporization. I'm passionate about the topic and the community. I love bringing people together and I love helping them understand the ins and outs of vaping weed.

    Hi Troy, I have alot of vapes on this page but was looking for a strong condution, stoney, battery powered vape. I was looking at starry vs cfx+ vs Pax3. What are your comparisons?
    Thanks and see on the streams.

    In reading all of your reviews, I am not sure which one would provide a milder hit, as I am sensitive to smoke. I am also looking for one that is easy to use and easy to keep clean. Thank you.

    TM2 in A tier and Solo 3 at the top top of your list just makes me curious if you got to try the upgraded “Purple
    Heart” edition?

    I thought it was just a limited color like what Puffco does, but found out they cranked up the heater too! also, has the new stems with balls and a glass mouth-piece.

    Do you think you’ll do an update on the Tiny? Was curious with all the Solo 3 hype.

      I need to update my TM2 content this year. I didn’t go in on the Purple Heart though. It looks gorgeous!
      Tinymight 2 doesn’t do much for me in my reach test, but I love it for what that vape can do. It’s just a lot of bills to still be a bit tinker-toy-ish.
