The Best Vaporizers for Dry Herb as Rated by Real Users

The Best Vaporizers

I could tell you what the best vaporizer is, but why don’t you tell me for a change? ;-)

Post a comment below and share what your favorite vaporizer is, and at the end of your post please list all of the vapes you own. If you have more than one favorite (like me) just write about the one that you use the most.

It can be any desktop or portable vape for dry herb, and if you own both types you can vote for your two favorites (one portable and one desktop).

I’ll keep an updated tally below so you can quickly see which models are getting the most votes.

Please write at least a few sentences so that I can ensure each post is a legitimate vote. I’m gonna start the ball rolling by leaving the first comment on 3/16/17.

This page will be strictly for user reviews, if you have any vape questions please feel free to post them on the forum to get help.

Stay up!

    Definitely the vapcap! Full spectrum extraction the size of a pen no batteries to keep charged just a jet lighter.

  2. Dan says:

    I have a craft, firefly,and summit that never get used cause the omnivap is by far best

  3. Emm says:

    Boundless cf. ..easy vape, small,and less expensive than most good notables

  4. Sean says:

    I like the Pax2 simply because of it’s portability and how stealthy it is. I started with a Hot Box, which I think is great and can really stretch out your use of dry herbs, just not so stealthy and it is a desk top.

    I own and their use in order of preference:
    For Herbs – Pax2, Firefly2 & Hot Box.
    For Concentrates – Linx, Aurora, Gohst.
    Right now I’m using a Grav Labs Fire Button on their Slush Cup. I feel that it was my first “real” Dab experience :) I nearly fell over from the intense high \m/

    Updated thanks guys!!

  6. John says:

    Here is the vapes I’ve owned :
    Portable : mflb crafty mighty Omnivap OG vapcap
    Desktop : volcano digit Aromed SSV EQ

    In the desktop area, the Aromed is my favorite one for his incredible taste,fast heat up time and mesmerizing light show.

    In the portable area, my Vapcaps are my favorite for the unmatched portability, the efficiency, the on demand aspect, the taste of the first draw and the power that this little vape can put on your face, unbreakable (for my full Ti omnivap) and the ritual that’s so more human.. I only reach my mighty when I want a long session!

  7. Seb says:

    I have a Vaponic, a Focusvape Premium Pro and an Omnivap (VapCap).
    The Omnivap is by far the best one, it´s so efficient, looks good, the taste is very good.
    Hands down the best Vaporizer I can imagine.

  8. Mike says:

    Mighty is the king of killer rips…

  9. Alex Hand says:



    Vapes I own:

    Vapor Bros desktop, V2 Pro Series 3, Grasshopper.

  10. Blu says:

    Hey bud

    I have a mighty
    Vapcap og and omni

    Omni wins all day long!

    My poor mighty’s been gathering dust since I got on the vapcap train and I thought I would never see the day that I stopped using the mighty!
    Omni’s just so quick / effective and stealthy.
    Think vapcaps goin to be my most expensive vape/s soon tho cos can’t stop ordering more parts, I so want a nonavong now lol.

  11. Bud Bud says:

    To the last bunch of people who voted for the IQ: Please reply to your own comment and let us know what other vapes you have for perspective, thank you!!

  12. Green Remedy Barcelona says:


  13. Hector says:

    By far the best is the IQ! Purity is what I like and with the IQ its what I get..

  14. Isabel says:

    IQ all the way!
    I already had the Ascent and I decided to upgrade for the newest version and I Love it

  15. Will Loomis says:

    I love that my IQ extended mouthpiece works with my bubbler…all that yummy vapor.

    Other vapes include:

    – Pax 2
    – Crafty
    – Vivape….pos!

  16. Mary Maddox says:

    DaVinci IQ, Best I have used or seen on the market love it!

  17. Todd says:

    DaVinci IQ all day

  18. Cort Smith says:

    DaVinci iq. Best taste, best materials used, most thoughtful engineering

  19. Ted says:

    I didn’t see the vapes my wife and I use. We both use the v2 pro series 3 and 7. My wife loves the series 7 because she gets a better draw. I use the series 3 for oils.

  20. Rhys says:

    The Plenty!

    It’s great for solo use with the help of the liquid pad, and great for sharing because of the size of the chamber. The draw resistance is the lowest I’ve experienced.

    I own it and the Crafty, and almost never use the crafty in favour of the lower draw resistance offered by the Plenty.

    The vapour is also much cooler compared with the Crafty.

  21. Skip says:

    I have owned the magic flight, crafty, 2 mightys at the same time, herbalizer, cloud evo, and the grasshopper. I honestly loved them all at the time. For my purposes.. I’ve sold them all except the 2 mightys and the grasshopper. I also kept the hydratube that came with the evo. My personal favorite is tbe grasshopper. Ikept the mightys because 1is for the wife and one is my stand in for the grasshopper when its being repaired.. Which happened more frequently in the early months. My reason for choosing the grasshopper over the other vapes is….. I live in a non legal state. I like to smoke all day while I’m out and about with out long heat up times and lots of smell…. I can pull it out and hit it and put it away with people 20 ft away without much worry. I can finish a bowl before the mighty is even up to temp when I set the gh on 5.The grasshopper allows for all of these MOST important needs of mine when smoking at work lets say….I’ll trade a hot mouthpiece and shorter battery life for stealth and speed anyday. It also does everything I need it to do at home especially with the HT. I have 3 spare batteries and and external charger.. Im in love. If you dont have to sneak around or you just wait till you are home… Or ifyou live in a legal state I’m sure you have a different opinion.. I think the I’d still choose the GH afyer a year of heavy use. I have a mighty waiting on me when I get home but I still use the GH everyday with the exception of a joint here and there… Grasshopper hands down

  22. Bud Bud says:

    Just updated again keep the votes comin!

  23. koepen says:

    I own FF2, Pax2, Crafty and Linx Hypnos Zero.

    FF2 -> #1

  24. Diggy Smalls says:

    I own an Underdog, Heat Island, Da Buddha, Light Saber Vaporizer, MFLB, ti-woody vapcap, and several cheap portables.

    I do love the vapcap a whole lot, but the underdog is the one I use the most hands down. I love the Heat Island and Vapcap a whole bunch, but they don’t get used quite as much as the Underdog.

  25. Jack Kelliher says:

    All I have is the Plenty, and I like it very much, but I think the Volcano or Herbalizer would be better, if not so expensive.

  26. Oddjobold says:

    No vapcap?

    +1 dynavap omnivap

  27. Paul Waller says:

    Mighty #1. for now

  28. Moran says:

    Pax2. Undisputed. I’m sure the 3 is nice but I like the colors and finishe of the 2. I have firefly2 as well. It’s been a huge disappointment. Is there anyway to improve draw resistance in the fitefly2?

  29. Bud Bud says:

    Thanks again for all of your feedback it’s very helpful!

  30. NickyRicky says:

    Mighty by far the best portable

  31. Tim says:

    The VapeXhale Evo is the best vaporizer available.

  32. ganjajoejoe says:

    Hey Bud,

    Here’s mine:
    2-Crafty (3rd one after replacements)
    3-Pax 1 (no longer use)

    Was all set on the Firefly but after mixed reviews stayed away.
    Looking for another vape, still searching.

    Stay High,


  33. Janet Liston says:

    My favourite vape is the Mighty. The DaVinci IQ is excellent but not as a daily use vape. I use my vape heavily and none of them can keep up like the Mighty. Add to that the capsules for fast loading and there’s really no comparison. Plus I can drop the damn thing! And I do. :)

    Cheers Bud.

  34. Sparkie says:

    Top vape for me is the Crafty. Wish the battery lasted longer, but it’s size and vapor quality are the best. Also, you can’t beat the service from their office in California.

  35. Julia Ruggiero says:

    I have been vaping for many years now and my most preferred vapes are…The Plenti gives a great direct strong hit. Unfortunately it is not portable it is a plug in. My favorite portable (and I have 5 ) is the WISPR2. I love that it is NOT chargable …it runs on 5 time filtered butane. It great for camping when you dont have electricity no need for it. I like how easy it is to clean…and I like how big the chamber is. I have tried MANY portable vapes…from the divinci to pax…and just not happy with the size of chamber….hard to draw…and hard to clean.

  36. Bud Bud says:

    Quick question for VapCap voters, what do you think an accurate average price would be for it? Right now I have it as $35+ because that’s the cheapest one but I see that most of them are more like $100-$200. Thanks!

  37. nickdanger says:

    The VapCap has been the ideal vape for me. I’m a microdoser and the ability to take a hit or two on the go makes it my daily driver of choice. Small, easily portable, fast to use and hard hitting.

  38. StraightLine says:

    E-Nano Upsides dependable, powerful, adaptable, efficient and easy to use. I can’t think of any short comings that I haven’t got around or just learned to live with.

  39. Bud Bud says:

    Good morning all I just updated the totals again!

  40. Christopher says:


    • Christopher says:

      I also own a Grasshopper, PAX, Lotus, and previously owned an Arizer EQ, I strongly prefer the Vapcap to any of them.

  41. Marco says:

    firefly 2, I use it every day for about 5 months

  42. Todd says:

    I’ve never dropped the serious dough for a top shelf vape, but after buying some “ok” and poor ones, I’ve found that I love my Arizer Extreme Q tower as a tabletop – but my go to has been the Boundless CF – it’s cheap, works well, is durable and extremely consistent. It vapes well, tasted good, manages temp well and has a pretty solid battery life. I like the water pipe attachment with some ice in the ice tray of the bong – pretty much the smoothest thing ever and leaves you very very not sober. Lock away your funions….

  43. Brian Moss says:

    Volcano best for daily home use. Pax 3 best for mobile, travel, more public needs.

  44. Taz4101 says:

    Going to have to cast my vote for mighty. You should make 1 for portables and one for desktops. Cause we all know as good as portables are they cannot surpass they best desktops.

  45. Chuck the Duck says:

    Mighty vape by far!!! power purity effect!!!!!

  46. Omphaloskeptic says:

    Another vote for VapCap, I’ve converted several friends with multiple vaporizers. Flexible and a piece of art.

    I also own a Grasshopper and have spent significant time with the Haze V3.

  47. Farid says:

    Whoops, forgot some stuff in the last comment. My vote goes to the vapcap but I also own/have owned:

    arizer air
    Vapor Genie
    Arizer Solo
    Firewood 1
    Thermovape T1/Evo

  48. Farid says:

    Vapcap by far. The omnivap is like nothing else.

  49. Barry says:

    DynaVap Omni-XL (VapCap – top model).

    Love it, simple and easy to use, best customer service ever!

    I also have a GrassHopper which see’s less vape time now because of the VapCap.

    A Pax2 lying dormant.

    No longer using MFLB, Wispr, V2Pro S3

    As you can see I’m strictly in the portables scene, which is ironic as I’m currently stuck at home. Meh ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  50. Spencer Cotten says:

    My favourite is my Dynavap Vapcap Ti, it has dethroned my Herbalizer only by a small margin. What an incredible vapourizer for the price. Super low maintenance, high efficiency, no electricity required, and the vapour so so smooth.

  51. Squiby says:

    I tried several vapes before I found the perfect device. Avocado all the way!!!
    I tried a Volcano and own a few pens, which were scrappy, sort of worked and were short lived. Then I discovered how fabulous it is to shed the electronic tether and move on to liberation. I own: Lotus, Vapman and several Ti Vapcaps and an Omni.

    Vapcaps are the smallest, most efficient vape ever. Simple, beautiful, efficient.

    The Vapcap will still be working when all the rest have died.

  52. Prolsio says:

    Portable = VapCap!

    It’s efficient, hard hitting, durable, easy to clean, easy to use, customizable, modular and affordable. No batteries, no electronics to fail or finicky pieces to break.. If you get a wood or Ti version they’re almost indestructible. I carry mine around daily and never have to worry about it needing to be charged or dropping it and ruining my vape.

    Desktop – Underdog

    Efficient, smooth hitting, doubles as aromatherapy, customizable bodies and typically each unit is a one of a kind piece. Perfect for microdosing. Excellent quality stems and accessories.

    The vapes I own are:
    Vapcaps: Burl OmniVong, Ti Omni, Ebony Nonavong-S. Ti-Glassy.

    Underdog, SSV, SSSV, Sidekick, Solo, Air, EQ, CFX, Alternate, Milaana, Davinci (original), Magic Flight Box, several Source concentrate devices.

  53. antispleen says:

    Vapcap all the way. As a lifelong smoker, the vapcap is the perfect substitute. Great for microdosing and saving herb.
    Vapcap og
    Vapcap s
    Ti woody s
    Cocobolo Omninonavong

  54. Rob says:

    Volcano digit
    Crafty (rip)
    Haze v2

    Favorite is the mighty for its desktop performance on the go!

  55. Richard Finder says:

    #1 mighty. Works every day
    Never fails

  56. Stephen says:

    Davinci IQ,
    Arizer Air,
    Firefly 2,
    Air Vape,

    All good but Grasshopper is a stand out overall. Its accessible and tractable. Much like cigarettes and a great analogue.

  57. Stephen says:

    Overall? Grasshopper.

  58. Annette says:

    My fave is the X max v2.
    But I have a new box mod on order that I think will serve well.
    Others I have:
    M cig pen
    Trippy stick
    Magic flight launch box
    Candy pen

  59. Master Kush says:

    The crafty is a wonderful vape. I am on my 10th replacement as each unit only lasts a couple of months before failing. S&B has excellent support. They send replacement units out fast. My last failure was beyond the two year warranty but they still gave me a brand new crafty. I have an Ascent vape I purchased 3 years ago. I had it replaced by Davinci 6 times but the support was not as good as S&B. The crafty is much more efficient and easy to clean. They both give a powerful hit.

  60. Carlos Vapster says:

    (But I’m not digging the failure rates with these, I’ve never personally had a failure, but most of my friends have gone through 2 each)

    (But to be honest I haven’t tried many other desktops).

    Long response:
    But it’s never that simple, I have different vapes for different uses.

    My on the go stealth vape:

    My on the go if there is more than 1 person using it:

    My on the go if battery is a concern:
    Dynavap Vapcap Ti Woody-S

    (Current line up: Crafty, Volcano, Grasshopper, Dynavap vapcap Woody, Solo.
    Don’t use anymore: Indica, Flowermate v5.0S, Hebe Titan 2)

  61. Jerry says:

    I can compare what I have used and that is a volcano, crafty, mighty, plenty, (really like that company) grasshopper, boundless CF, PAX 1+2.

    Mighty is overall the best, because it’s so good and portable … plus capsules make it quick n clean ;-)

    The grasshopper I got recently and that thing with a bubbler …. WOW. Those rips … That can even beat a volcano in terms of effectiveness- not joking!

  62. Bookie says:

    Never used them would like to try herbalizer

  63. Bud Bud says:

    Man you guys are the BEST, I should make a page just for you ;)

    Just updated vote totals!

  64. shaywhitegrow says:


  65. PJ French says:

    The Plenty is my favorite.

  66. Luis says:

    Crafty is top for me.

    150 hrs so far and it’s still kicking like a champ.

  67. Derek musket says:

    Mighty not even close on any of the others

  68. Susan says:

    I like the Haze V3. Easy to use and clean. Maybe not as portable as some but it is my choice. Everyone seems to love the IQ. I do not. I have a Crafty which has been replaced twice but this one seems to work well and like it fine but again, I love the new version of the Haze.

  69. Alfred Angel Dreger says:

    I now own two Mighties. They’re keeping me alive. I always have one on the charger and each one goes through a full recharge cycle daily. These things are beastly and should be considered for medical users.

    Plenty (I was ashamed to even give it away. That cooling unit sucks, Condenses too much and impossible to clean. The reducer only fixed half the problem as the screen/top piece needs to be modified.)
    Crafty (100+ hours)
    Pax (original, nightmare to keep clean)

  70. Gixxer says:

    I use both a desktop and portable vaporizers.

    I only own one desktop and that is the Volcano. There is nothing better out there. I usually weigh out about 0.3 grams. Then I will grind it and then grind it again in the Magic Flight finishing grinder. It is normally enough to completely cover the bottom screen of the bowl for the Volcano. I will start off at a setting of 4.5 and go up by 1 with every bag. It gets me a nice high for a few hours. If I want to get really baked, I will use more weed and smoke more bags.

    I have a few portables but I have one favorite. I love my Crafty! It is a little bulkier for a portable but it gives me the most control and bang for my buck. I will normally prepare the weed

  71. Geoffrey Calderone says:

    My favorite has been, for a long time, the Crafty. But now that I’ve been using the IQ, my Crafty is gathering dust. I love, love, love the IQ! Great taste, replaceable battery, easy to load and super easy to clean. Plus multipe heat paths. It’s by far my favorite.
    I own the following: Volcano, Crafty, Pax, Solo, Whisper and Iolite. I loath the Pax and the company for its piss poor service and warranty department.

  72. Ben Son says:

    Well let’s get into it :). I won’t go in to great detail, since else this post would be getting waaaaaaay too long. But i can talk for hours on this subject haha.

    1.Mighty: (taste & quality is more than great)
    2.FocusVape [pro]: (my GF her #1 choice, since it doesn’t deliver an in your face punch like the Mighty does. It’s has a longer build up.
    3. Arizer Solo: Unbelievable economical vaporizer. the little amount of herb it uses is astounding. Easiest to clean & is cleaned super fast!
    [2b or 3b: Crafty. love it in general as an on-the-go vape.]
    4. MFLB: I love this little fella when I go to the movies or somewhere else where stealth is everything. (i just hate that the batteries drain so fast.)
    5. PAX2: Looks great! but yeah… Not a fan b/c of various reasons.
    6. Ascent v2: Friends of mine rate this one higher, it really isn’t a bad one to be placed 6th. but, without going into great detail, it ranks here regarding my personal specifics.

    Trash: Flowermate Aura, Flowermate v5.0s Pro, Summit. Neither of these worked good or tasted good or anything. I would advise you to stay away from these. Get a Focusvape (pro) if you want to buy a startup/budget vaporizer!!

    Desktop Vaporizers:

    1.SSV (silver surfer vape). Sadly the store where i bought it doesn’t want to acknowledge that i bought it at their store, and 7th floor wants a receipt to get it repaired.. But I love the “on demand” control. the taste is awesome!
    1b. (hehe) Volcano. because hell yeah! def worth its money.
    2.Extreme Q has all the goods and needs. if you are unsure if you like the whip or bag the most, this is a great start desktop vape.

    Great Mention; I love using “De Verdamper” at cannabis cups orso. but it’s too bulky to have it at home, in my opinion.

    I own: all of the above; except “De Verdamper” & Flowermate v5.0s Pro (It broke down after 6month, which is quite normal for this unsafe Chinese crap, apparently. Traded it for a FocusVape Pro). The Summit and Aura are collecting dust.)

    • Bud Bud says:

      Amazing post thank you! Got u down for the Mighty and SSV ;)

      • Ben Son says:

        Alright, that’s good ;-).

        Thanks for the compliment. =)

        I really like vaporizing and I have helped friends in the past, choosing the right vape for them.

        It’s a fun side hobby :D.

  73. DJF says:

    The Mighty is the best that I have tried! Efficient and Powerful! I only use the Capsules in its oven. They provide the dosage I need and are excellent in helping keep the Mighty clean. My second Vape is the Pax 2, a good dependable back up vaporizer.

  74. LDC says:

    Solo Arizer.
    I’ve tried a couple others friends owned. Solo A has been the best thus far. 3 yrs now. I’ve introduced the Solo Arizer to several friends. At least 6-8 of them sent off and bought one. I love the amount it holds and the vape is always great. 5 stars fm me!

  75. Nederveit says:

    After trying a couple of less
    Expensive vapes, I bought the
    Mighty, and it’s great. Don’t really have to clean it.

    There are cons, like warm up time, and battery life, but best one I’ve tried to date.

  76. JD says:

    I have a Plenty and an IQ and love them both, but I find myself reaching for the IQ most of the time. The quality of the vapor combined with the convenience of use makes it my go to vape.

  77. Brian says:

    I’ve owned PAX 1, Crafty and Firefly.

    PAX wss good with water adaptor, but not a fan of the flavor. Sold it.

    Crafty better flavour and is really nice on the go portable. Sold it but wished i hadn’t.

    Firefly is by far my overall favorite. Once you get past the learning curve it’s awesome. Best flavour, but not great on the go because you have to stir between hits. Should have kept the Crafty for on the go and Firefly when you have time and space to enjoy.

    Update: I meant firefly 2. Not sure about the original.

    Note from Bud: Good cus I was gonna ask ;)

  78. Aidan says:

    I have the arizer solo & extreme q, pax 2, inhalator XP, mflb, and some pens. The solo is my favorite. It’s not the most stealthy and doesn’t have the most features, but it consistently provides exceptional vapor quality, has great battery life, and is extremely efficient. I’ve used the crafty and would take the solo over it!

  79. Just Sum Geezer says:

    Oh, I meant to say… Frankly, they all burn a bit too hot for sustained use. I’d really like to see a portable system that didn’t rough up my throat sooner or later.
    I’m really not too bothered about how efficient they are in relation to that… ;)

  80. Just Sum Geezer says:

    Toughie. I have an Arizer Solo with a couple of water attachments which would really be my favourite at home; a Crater Deluxe which is a UK PAX copy and is great for a sneaky hit while out and about or hiking in high winds; and a Flower Mate something or other (not the top model)which is my general go to at the moment.
    The two things that determine which I go for are privacy – I’m condemned to rented accommodation so I do use a ‘Smoke Buddy’ with the Arizer and the Flower Mate (although neither seem to set off smoke alarms). And what I’m vaping – the crater goes great with bud and leaf, as does the Solo. The Flower Mate, with which I use the little canisters, isn’t so great with shade leaf.
    Just to explain the latter choice – I’m very happy with the “cabbage” now, after many years on the Devil’s Lettuce, and I don’t push my luck so to speak.
    My next Vape will most likely be the latest FireFly.
    Loving your work Bud! You never cease to put a smile on my face…

    Stay Up!

  81. Scoobie Steve says:

    The mighty is by far the best portable vaperizer I have used. The Crafty is worth considering but there is better battery life on the Mighty (two lithium ion batteries instead of only one). I also give high marks to the PAX 3 for its quick, 15 second warmup (compared to over a minute to heat up, with the larger bowl, in the Mighty). The Pax 3 only holds about half of the medicine in its bowl compared to the Mighty. The mighty is so easy to load with the loading tool that it comes with! Taste, conveyance, big hits, battery life, S&B quality, all “TOP OF THE LINE” with the Mighty!

    P.S.- Best Home Vaporizer- Digital Volcano #1! After I got the Mighty, I don’t use my Volcano very often because the Mighty is so easy to use and it gives such Big, deep, tokes! Incredible amount of engineering in that Mighty!

  82. Jim says:

    I like the Air Vape XS I just got best, it’s my 4th portable vape, I also have the Pax 1, launch box, and Firefly 2.

  83. steve says:

    Aromed is my favorite.
    still own : Vapman ( awesome , usually my daily), herbalaire, grasshopper (perfect for what is is designed for ), pax.

  84. Mike T. says:

    I own both the Volcano and the Mighty.

    They’re great but the digit volcano is the winner for me.

  85. Blaine says:

    For swappable batteries, great flavor, extreme efficiency, and potent vapor along with the great look my pick is the Firewood 4

  86. Johnny says:

    I Vape for R.A. pain, usually a gram per day. For my purposes the Mighty has been the most eficient, easiest to use and maintain, best tasting, and coolest vape production. My other vapes are Crafty, Plenty, and Vapeman.

  87. Jerry says:

    The Mighty.

    For it’s consistency… quality … and most of all: it’s damn fine clouds.

  88. Moe says:

    The mighty is the best hands dowm

  89. jeff says:

    Davinci IQ is my favorite vape right now. I like a larger session and one i can use with water. The IQ can go for almost 20 minutes straight and has the best water attachment i have used of any vape. It’s size, vapor quality, removable battery are also pluses. i also own a FF1, FF2, CFX, Hypnos pen.

  90. Ken says:

    I own a Mighty, DaVinci IQ, DaVinci Ascent, original DaVinci, a Kandy pen, a Firefly 2 and an Atmos. The Mighty is the best, followed by the IQ. The Atmos was a useless piece of junk.

    I try to get the next one down from the top of the line ,I think.
    Extreme Q – Desktop
    Smoke stay cool, Good smoke

    DaVinci Ascent – The older model. The smoke stays cool
    Good portable. I would bump up to the IQ. Can’t go wrong.

  92. Steve says:

    Still the Silver Surfer ( SSV ) for me. Great desktop vape for short or long sessions alike, never lets me down.
    Thanks for asking, Bud !

  93. Robb says:

    I own the crafty, aspire and DaVinci. Crafty da best.

  94. Bud Bud says:

    Just updated the totals again!

  95. Stan says:

    Mt favorite dry herb vape is the Arizer Air, love those removable batteries and very easy to clean. My favorite for concentrates is the Linx Hypnos Zero. I’ve also owned an iolite, davinci, magic flight launch box, and O-Phos.

  96. Jim pike says:

    My best vape is a volcano digital. The crafty is quite good as is the extreme q.the pax i had was rubbish to small place to put weed. I got awispr too but now days i like the amount you get in the bag ask the rest you can’t vape enough weed!

  97. Darren says:

    The mighty and crafty is by far the best. I have both of them, the plenty, firefly2 and the snoop Dogg G pen. Definitely watch the vape critic, he knows his stuff.

  98. Rob Yale says:

    In my opinion the Digital Volcano is the best vape I own!

  99. Cliff Jackson says:

    I could be the poster guy for Storz-Bickel. I use a Volcano and a Mighty. Both are excellent and provide reliable service. I have and use other vaporizers, but none seem to deliver consistent quality like the Storz-Bickel products.
    I’m a cancer patient and possibly use my vapes more than the average consumer. I wouldn’t say that makes me an expert, but I am definitely a learned vape user.
    Have a blessed day

  100. Tommy Giglio says:

    I just bought the DaVinci IQ. So far very happy with it. Love the flavor and small size. Nice long sessions with one pack fav at the moment. My honorable mention would be the whisper 2.

  101. Murr says:

    I love my VapeExhale EVO. Big hits, excellent taste, easy maintenance with heavy use. The hydratube feels like hitting a traditional bong with thick, cooled clouds.

    Still searching for my fav portable. Pax2/3 is hard to beat in terms of stealthiness but the MFLB has a much better hit, IMO. Hoping to try Mighty or Crafty in the near future!

  102. Jacob says:

    Arizer Air is epic! Clean vapor and tastes so yummy! You can really taste the flavors and there are so many attachments.

  103. JOHN J ROBB says:

    I’ve been vaping since 2001 (a Vapor Brothers) and have a few vaporizers. But my go to favorite is the MIGHTY.


  104. Mattsu says:

    Mighty, easy!

  105. Reed says:

    Vapolution 3

  106. Zep (Cheryl Haag Phelan) says:

    My favorite is the Pax 3. Second best Pax2. Both vape weed thoroughly to dark brown coffee grounds-like dust. Also had a Magic Flight Box that I never liked, Firefly1 that was ok but didn’t hold much or go far, and was impractical to take out. And an Alfa that could not vape as thoroughly as my Pax2/3

  107. Jeff lowenfels says:

    Vapcap is the best tasting, easiest to use, biggest hitting, hardest hitting vaporizer out there!

  108. RenegadeReviews says:

    The Davinci IQ has my vote. From the excellent clouds it produces full of delicious flavor to decent size chamber for those of us who like longer sessions. I also own the Firefly2, Crafty, Mighty, And the Davinci Ascent. I spare no expense when it comes to trying to find the best most reliable vape to serve my high use needs.

  109. Edd soly says:

    I have the volcano ,the plenty magic flight lunch box , pax1,pax2
    Volcano is my number one
    Pax2 for on the go

  110. JS says:

    The Crafty. It is discrete, holds enough to last a medical user who uses it for sleep several days. It is cost-effective because it burns the flower so efficiently, it allows the flavor to come through and truly vaporizes, no smoke on the throat. I have had it for 3 years now. Yes, it is true the battery life is not terrific, but it’s not the kind of a could be passing around among friends very much anyway. Most surprising of all is that I have dropped it into my hot tub on several occasions, where it was submerged for several minutes, and after a day of drying out it worked perfectly.

  111. Prashanth says:

    Having used the Haze for over a year and then a few cheaper units that my friends owned, I recently switched to butane torch vapes a few months back and I’m simply blown away at the efficiency of the Lotus and Vapman in particular. Besides that any of the log vapes are absolute killers. I’d vote also for the E-Nano in that case. I still prefer the versatility and “herb-economy” of the butane torch vapes though.

  112. Larry says:

    Herbalizer is great! Smaller than great volcano. Mighty is my favorite portable. Herbalizer my favorite desk top

  113. Kim Switzer says:

    I have both Mighty and Plenty but lately have been using pens more with cartridges in CA

  114. Rosemary says:

    I love, love, love my Herbalizer! Cashed material is golden in color, never burned. It’s always ben spot on for my needs.

    I also own a Plenty and a Magic Flight Launch Box. I used to have a Vapor Tower.

  115. Colin says:

    Volcano is my every day use, also have the mighty and a load of other ones, nothing beats the volcano. Although I am intrigued by the classic glass verdamper unit.

  116. Dave says:

    I own volcano Herbalizer vapexhale evo ssv vapirrise 2.0 mighty crafty IQ pax 1and 2 ascent davinci haze prima solo air. #1 volcano / mighty

  117. Sandy says:

    Top Favorite: Arizer Extreme Q. I have 2 and love them. I recommend these to everyone and have even given one as a gift.

    Also own:
    Puffit 2 ……..hate it; never use it.
    Mighty……….Hate everything about it. Really regret the 400 bucks I spent on this thing. Gave up trying to get any satisfaction out of it after about 5 inadequate and bad tasting sessions.

    Stay up! Bud. Thanks for all your dedication.

    I guess I’m about to give up trying to find a decent portable.

    • Prashanth says:

      You should give butane torch vapes a shot. I just posted a comment about the vapman and lotus vapes. Amazingly efficient, cheap and so much more fun to use compared to battery powered ones. :)

    • Jacob says:

      You should try the Arizer Air for portability, easy to load, good vapor clouds, and best of all great taste every time… Even with old dry herbs.

  118. JT says:

    PAX 3. I own the PAX2. Davinci. ArizerQ. Definitely the PAX3

  119. Jesse says:

    03/17/2017, 10:09 am ET

    Bud, I love my Storz & Bickel Mighty (with modified glass mouthpiece) – and as an old-school backup to that unit, I like my OG Sticky Brick from Sticky Brick Labs.

  120. Lou says:

    I started with the vapir no2 then moved to PAX then to PAX2 then Volcano. By far Volcano is the best.

  121. Peter says:

    e-nano, due to its elegant appearance, simplicity and ability to efficiently vape small amounts

  122. kfir hefets says:

    The Grasshopper.
    Stay up!

  123. vape L (forum ID) says:

    I own a grasshopper, an IQ, and a vapcap. My favorite is definitely the vapcap. It 100% dependable 100% of the time which is just the beginning. The vapor is dense and smooth every time. It’s super durable and beautifully made. Carrying it around in not a problem since it’s no bigger than a cigarette. I love how every owner will eventually tweak it to reflect their own personality. The other major selling point is that the CS from Dynavap is out of this world. I have never heard one bad thing said about their CS in the entire vapcap thread on FC forum.

  124. Tom says:

    Portable = Mighty
    Tabletop = Volcano

  125. Joey says:

    Best portable vape IMO is the Crafty by far, as it’s the most reliable vape: quality-built, top notch flavor-wise, handy, great customer service…well, Storz and Bickel.
    Other vape I own (in order of preference): Grasshopper, Dynacap Nonavong, MFLB, Firefly2, Arizer Solo, V2
    pro series 3, Iolite.

    Can’t wait to see what S&B got next!

  126. Bud Bud says:

    Thanks guys!! Just updated the vote totals!

  127. Chris says:

    FireFly 2…??? how has this one not been mentioned yet?

    • Chris says:

      WTF Zib lol, we posted same vape same time lol,freaky I feel like we r in the twilight zone (zoooodoooozooodooo)

  128. sue says:

    Best Desktop for me is my Volcano for sure. Perfect Vapor 100% of the time and extremely efficient. Best portable I have to say is the Crafty. Very efficient and I love the vapor quality. The vaporizers I own: Volcano, Sticky Brick, Haze V3, Grasshopper, and Crafty.

  129. Southern Chef says:

    If you only let me keep one, it would have to be the EVO. EVO and Mighty if you let me keep two.

    I own most of the usual suspects.

  130. pedro says:

    I won the alpha and crafty, my vote is for crafty now doubt. peace

  131. D says:

    My fav vape is the e-nano. You just can’t beat the efficiency when it comes to conserving material. Also has an adjustable temp wheel and can also be simply left on for use whenever. Vapes owned: e-nano and pax 1.

  132. Joseph says:

    l use a Flower mate air V 3.0 cheap works l am happy. 2nd vape l had was a titan also a snoop dog g absolute crap cheers stoners.

  133. Bishop says:


    While I have other desktops and portables, the Volcano has always provided the best vape sessions

  134. Teddypear7 says:

    Desktop: Vapexhale Cloud Evo
    Portable: Mighty

  135. Arjun says:

    First choice: volcano classic

    Special mention: the mighty for stealth and portability and ability to roast our third world resins & concentrates.

  136. Look Mexico says:

    I own the plenty, arizer v tower, and launch box. The plenty is my favorite but the vtower is a solid unit as well. Plenty produces a lot of vapor. Vtower is more efficient and can be left on for up to 4 hours at a time. Launch box is ok but only if the batteries are full otherwise it’s not that reliable. It works well with full batteries and it’s nice and small and easy to carry around.

  137. Bruce says:

    I think the DaVinci IQ. Has become the best dry herb vape. The Crafty and Mighty have held the crown as king of the portable dry herb vapes. It’s 10 years Storz and Bickel need to upgrade. The IQ is packed with dozens of features, durability and excellent performance. The Crafty still will outperform the DaVinci IQ, but it’s close. The DaVinci IQ, is no slouch, if you aren’t careful it will knock you into next week.

    The Crafty / Mighty still make a compelling case to remain #1 because it’s a dual purpose vape, I like the way the Crafty does concentrates. Not the most efficient but smoother than my pick up lines.

    If concentrates are important, a combo of the Vape Critics favorites, The IQ and for concentrates The Lynx Hypnos Zero. ($275 for the IQ and $60 for the Hypnos Zero.

    If it were not for the defect rate I would still have the Crafty at number one. It’s a very important factor, reliability and defect rate.

    The best balloon Vape is the Volcano. I think it’s the strongest and most potent vapor ever produced by a vape I have tried. The Arizer Extreme Q is my favorite. It is extremely potent and very adjustable. It has the cool factor looks really futuristic, remote control, glass, can be used as a desktop, balloon or aromatizer.

    I take the Arizer Extreme Q over the Volcano.

  138. Magicman says:

    C’mon man…

    Crafty is still the best!

  139. Brandon says:

    I have to put my vote in for the Firewood 4. Absolutely incredible battery life, 4, 5 or even 6 bowls per session with a good battery, flavor that lasts through almost the whole session. The capsules are unfortunately a bit fiddly to fill, but if you can, it’s worth it. It’s cheaper than the Grasshopper, pretty much as portable although possibly not as stealthy, and it’s great for sessions. I own a stainless hopper, crafty, Vapcap and Yocan Evolve Plus as well as the FW4.

    • Bruce says:

      I request that the Vape Critic add new categories. Ultra Portable (The Grasshopper, Portable (IQ, Crafty, FF2 etc..) and semi portable (The Mighty).

  140. Jason says:

    Own volcano and mighty, but use mighty 9x% of the time. Also use a small attachment to allow the mighty to be filtered through a water bong. Easy to use, quick, efficient, effective, and smooth.

  141. Bud Bud says:

    Love it thanks guys keep it comin!

  142. cilantro says:

    Portable: Grasshopper
    Desktop: Cloud EVO

    Currently own: (portables) – FF2, Crafty, Mighty, CFV, OmniVap, VapCap OG, MFLB, Pax 2, Lotus
    (desktop) – EVO (w/Hydrabomb), Volcano

    All of the vapes are great for different situations, but the ‘Hopper design, stealth, and power are still pretty remarkable despite the flaws. At home, EVO gets the nod.

    Thanks VapeCritic for your work!

  143. Jack Jackson says:

    Portable: Grasshopper
    Desktop: AroMed

  144. Chris says:

    “The Plenty” Storz & Bickle

  145. Baron23 says:

    For portable – the Mighty. Well built, extracts great, taste great, and easy to operate. While I love my Grasshopper, my pens and mods/atomizers, and my VapCaps, if I could only have one portable it would be the Mighty.

    For desktop – the VXH EVO (with HT) – This vape hits like a bong, is versatile in both the products you can vape (herb and concentrates) and how you use it (straight stem, J-hook, HT, whip, upside down on your own WP), and VXH CS has been very good to me so far. I LOVE my Volcano and Enano. This was hard. There is no more reliable and consistent vape than the Volcano. There is hardly a more useful vape than a good log vape like the Enano. But if it was down to one and one only, I would go with the EVO.

    What I own now:

    Desktops: Volcano Digit, EVO, Enao
    Portables: Ti Bronze Grasshopper , Mighty, Vapcap OG and Ti Woody, Eleaf iStick TC 100 w-DT 2.5/2.7 and Atmos Kiln, KandyPens Galaxy, Linx Hpynos Zero
    Enail: G9 and Auber 300 RDK controllers and CCA710 Liger Banger 2.0 with SiC & Quarts inserts
    Glass: C2 stemless 65mm can, Bates x Worm internal and external diffusion pump, PAG Hover Pecr and Recycler, TAG egg recycler, Turbine Hydrotube.

  146. Bud Bud says:

    Portable: Crafty
    Desktop: Volcano

    This is of course an extremely difficult question for me to answer, so I cast my votes based on how many hours I’ve used each vape.

    I’ve used the Crafty more than any other portable vape I own, about 400 hours total if I add up all my units, and I’ve had my Volcano a very long time (since 2009, and I still use it).

    These are made by the same company (Storz & Bickel), and they’re kinda the guys who started it all in terms of taking this vaping stuff seriously.

    There are a LOT of other vaporizers that I love and use often, these just stand out.

    My top picks lists are always being updated but I consider these two to be legendary.

    Vapes I own: You already know lol
