Vaping has to be one of the most popular ways to consume dry herbs. They’re a healthier alternative to traditional methods of smoking and many have gotten on that train lately. In the beginning, vaporizers were costing a small fortune. However, as they have gotten more popular and advanced, it created an opportunity for the market to be flooded by quality, affordable vaporizers. As there are so many of these things available nowadays, we’ve decided to present you with few of the best ones, so you can be certain you’re not wasting your money on a sub-par quality product. Let’s get started.
1. DaVinci IQ2
What you can expect from IQ2 is a top-of-the-line performance, sleek design, a couple of innovative features and a hefty price tag, which if you don’t mind paying, makes this one of the best products on the market for consuming the dry herb.
It doesn’t get more comfortable and tasty than this. The vapour cools as it travels through the device and by the time it hits your mouth, it’s as comfortable as it gets. The flavour lingers with this one so you can treat your taste buds once you pick it up and start your session.
As we could’ve expected from DaVinci – the quality and the craftsmanship of this device is top-notch. It looks and feels great, as one premium device should.
Using it and cleaning it is also quite easy and comfortable. It takes the IQ2 about a minute to reach 390°F, or a little bit longer if the battery is drained – but it’s not an issue. It just leaves you with enough time to get nice and comfy so you can enjoy your vaping session.
The battery is pretty decent and you can expect about 70-ish minutes of use on a single charge.
With IQ2 you get several new cool features like adjustable oven size, controlled airflow and a new dosing control feature. With all of these, you can completely customize your vaping experience to your needs.
2. Quant Vaporizer
Quant vaporizer is one of the most versatile devices on the market being used for dry herb, wax and liquid.
When it comes to design, the device feels very sturdy in your hand and the walnut finish makes it stand out in the sea of aluminium, minimalist-looking devices.
The chamber of this device is truly remarkable. It’s a quartz chamber that can withstand quite high temperatures and not only that, this device heats up to 320°F in just a matter of seconds. It has this very nice, bright LED display that lets you keep track of the temperature and notice when the device is ready for use. The vapour is smooth and tasty as you would expect from a device of this calibre.
The battery on this device is also great and it charges rather quickly for a vaporizer battery. Another fun thing about this device is that is has a neat power-saving feature that shuts off your device after 4 minutes of idle time.
All in all, this is one of the best looking and best-performing vaporizers you can buy right now.
3. Pax 3
According to the Green Society, Pax 3 is one of the most popular and best overall dry herb vaporizers your money can buy.
One thing that stands out about this one is how sleek and good-looking it is. It’s small, compact and remarkably stunning – which is something we’ve gotten used to coming from Pax.
If you’re looking for a dense, yet smooth vapour and a mouthful of tasty goodness – look no further, because it doesn’t get much better than this. The vapour quality is something else with this one and you have complete control of it.
Battery life is impressive, as you get about 90 minutes of use for 90 minutes of charging, which is quite nice.
It’s a rather simple device to use, you can do it all with just one button and four LED indicators that are showing your what you’re doing. Don’t like buttons? You can just shake the device to get it out of temp or battery mode. And if you don’t like any of that – you can download an app a have complete control over Pax 3 right from your smartphone.
Another neat feature of this one is that it recognizes when you are not vaping and it lowers the temperature inside the chamber to save battery and keep the herb fresh for longer.
4. XMAX Starry V3
For a budget-friendly vaporizer, it doesn’t get much better than this.
The third version of the Starry is the best one so far. It’s a small, discrete device, with a sturdy aluminium body and a simple, but cool design.
It produces quite a vapour for a budget model and that’s because it features a ceramic conduction oven and the vapour never touches anything other than ceramic or stainless steel – so there’s nothing there to mess with the flavour.
It’s really easy to use. All of your controls are simple. There are three buttons and a mini display with all the necessary information like battery life and temperature. Also, a haptic feature will slightly vibrate the device when it’s heated up and ready for use.
Battery life is also pretty good, about 80 minutes of use on a single charge. It takes a fairly long time to charge up, but, it is also a removable one, so you can easily switch between batteries when you run out of juice.
If you’re tired of conventional design and you want to experience something different – Plenty is plenty different.
The first thing that strikes you about this one is the unique design. It features a large, triangular body, or a handle, whichever way you want to call it, alongside a corkscrew-like mouthpiece. However, it’s important to notice that the unique design is not without purpose – it’s shaped this way to make sure you get the best vapour quality possible. And you certainly do.
You get cool, rich-flavoured vapour thanks to the metal coil that serves as a mouthpiece.
You could argue that it’s not the easiest to use because you have to squeeze the orange trigger every time you want it to heat up, but that has its advantages as well.
Now, you won’t carry this one with you in a pocket because it has no battery, so it’s more of a table-top device, powered directly from the outlet.
Those were our top 5 picks for the best dry herb vaporizers. Of course, there are other quality products on the market as well, but we chose these 5 because we feel each of them offers something different, rather than just focusing on the one group of herb enthusiasts.
