The Yocan Regen is an affordable concentrate vaporizer made for the hard-hitters. It includes two different quartz coils that produce intense vapor and big clouds. The vapor quality is good but not great, so anyone who is into flavor over clouds should look elsewhere.
The Yocan Hit is a pen-like dry herb vaporizer that has cool innovations for its price. It has a built-in stirring tool, precise temperature control, and convection heating which are uncommon to find for an affordable vaporizer. It has a small and sleek build that allows for stealthy and discreet vaping. Although the Hit may be appealing for beginners, it’s not recommended for experienced vapers who are looking for top flavor or power.
The Connect is an e-Nail that can attach to any traditional bad rig, and eliminate the need to use a torch or the danger of having an exposed nail. Once connected, it allows precise calibration and customization of your sessions. All connections are magnetic, it uses a ceramic heating element, and it has three preset temperature levels. If you already own a Rig, and are looking to convert it to electric, the Connect is the way to go.
The Zeus Arc GT has a lot of the same features found in the top dry herb vaporizers as well as a few distinctive features of its own. Those features include gold parts that help to cool down the vapor and keep its flavor pure. The fact that those parts give it some extra flair doesn’t hurt. The haptic feedback, accelerometer, and unique temperature cycle don’t hurt either, in fact they make it one of the more exciting weed vapes to come along in a while. If you’re ready for some solid gold vaping, then pick up the Zeus Arc GT.
The Zeus Bolt 2 is an appealing choice for vapers that are looking for a low-cost grinder. It has a smooth grinding action and shreds down the herbs consistently. The scoop and the carrying bag are nice additional features that can be useful especially if you’re traveling. However, this grinder needs to be cleaned more often than other manual grinders.
I was impressed by the Linx Gaia because you don’t often see this kind of style, vapor quality, and build quality at this price range. This vape has features I would expect to see in products that cost nearly twice as much. That makes it one of the better vape deals I’ve seen in a while.
The Atmos Astra 2 surprised me with the vapor quality with the glass mouthpiece. The feature set, which includes haptic feedback and an OLED screen, is also impressive considering that this vaporizer costs less than $200.
The Tectonic9 is a manual grinder with an electronic dispensing action that makes it easy to use while keeping it portable-friendly. The grind consistency was good, and you can drop the herbs directly into your vaporizer. However, the additional complications involved with operating this grinder, plus the fact that it needs to be charged, means that it is not for everyone.
Fury Edge is a mid-tier vape that produces good and tasty vapor. It has a solid and compact build that has features like precise temp control, convection heating, and LED display. Also, it has tons of accessories you can choose from to improve your overall experience with this device. The Fury Edge is capable of giving you a premium experience that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
The Qloudup Nexus Pro is an upgrade to an already great vape pen. It keeps the great flavor while upping the convenience and comfort factors via a glass mouthpiece and magnetic connections. Those features and the selection of comparatively low temperatures make the Nexus Pro a great vaporizer for beginners.
The Linx Eden redefines what a budget weed vape can be by giving users a quartz herb chamber, vape pen like convenience, lengthy battery life, and above average vapor quality. It gets a little hot and the recharge time is pretty long, but overall, the good qualities outnumber the bad ones.
The Volcano Hybrid proves the viability of desktop vaporizers by providing the vapor quality and customization features that portable vapes cannot match. It allows you to program your own heating profile so that you can choose how you want to vape. The Hybrid also comes with a balloon and a whip for even more customization. Those options give the Volcano Hybrid an impressive level of versatility.
The RöK is a uniquely-designed versatile dab rig that can vape both wax and dry herb. It has an inverted design which means the water bubbler is used as a base and features a disc percolator that further filters the vapor. It also has 3 temp settings that range from 680-850°F and features a sesh mode which some vapers might find useful.
The Special K is a stealthy oil vape that’s compatible with any 510-threaded CBD/THC carts. The fast heat time allows you to vape whenever you want, and it also has 3 temp settings to personalize your session. There are two refillable 1ml carts for your liquid extracts. Overall, these are the qualities of a functional and versatile oil vaporizer.
The wide flavor variety and good selection of concentration levels make Hemp Bombs CBD cartridges some of the best around. They have a great airflow that provides a low draw resistance. They also work well with any type of compatible battery. People who like more neutral flavors will be disappointed, but everyone else will be satisfied by the wide variety of flavors available.
The Firefly 2+ is an advanced on demand vaporizer that is perfect for instant vaping whenever you want. You can also take it wherever you want because of its pocket-friendly size. The magnetic cover makes loading quick and easy and the smartphone app adds extra functionality.
The Omura uses pre-packed dry herb cartridges and provides a quick and easy start to vaping hemp. It had low draw resistance and good flavor. But there is a caveat- it only works with proprietary “flower sticks.” This is a limiting factor, especially if you don’t have access to a licensed dispensary.
The K-Vape Pro is one of the better budget vapes I’ve tried lately. This one stands out because of its tapered glass mouthpiece which helped with cooling down the vapor. It also features a hybrid heating method that vapes the herbs efficiently. Overall, this is a suitable dry herb vape for anyone who is looking for an entry-level durable vape for a fair price.
XMax Starry V3 offers a great value for the money, providing premium features that are not likely to be seen in a less than $100 vaporizer. It’s easy to use, has great build quality, and feels solid and sturdy despite its pocketable size. It has a magnetic mouthpiece that is made out of ceramic zirconia and it offers precise temperature control and haptic feedback. With a surprising performance, Starry raises the bar for value-oriented dry herb vaporizers.
The Mini 2 is a portable eRig compatible with concentrates and oils that delivers impressive performance for its excellent price – $159. It features wireless charging, four preset temperature levels, and a unique design with a clear carb cap. The Vista is a functional device and the vapor quality is satisfying for most average or entry-level users. Awesome value on this one.
At The Vape Guide, our goal is to have our visitors be the most well-informed and up-to-date vapers—or soon to be vapers—anywhere. We do that by giving you detailed breakdowns of the different kinds of vaporizers, tips, tricks, and advice that vapers will find useful, and by providing the most in-depth vaporizer reviews on the internet.
Since the vaporizer industry is constantly growing, it seems like a new vaporizer is released every week. That can make it hard for even seasoned vapers to keep up, which is why you have us. We help you to choose the right vaporizer for you by focusing on the specific aspects that are important to vapers regardless of whether they are beginners or veterans. Here is what we take into account when we rate each product:
As you can tell by the criteria listed above, our rating method is a mix of the objective and the subjective. When it comes to the subjective opinions, you can trust our team because they have been into vaping almost as long as vaporizers have been around. We have used and tested dozens of vaporizers in all available categories, so our experience is unparalleled.
After we rigorously test each device, we express our opinion in an easy to understand five point number system. That way you can get an idea of the vaporizer’s quality at a glance, but if you want a more detailed opinion, you can read the whole review.
When ranking vaporizers, we are looking for a high price/ performance ratio. Vapes can be ranked higher or lower, depending on their performance vs other vapes in the price range.
No matter which vaporizer you decide to buy, make sure that you get it from an authorized retailer. That is the best way to make sure that the vaporizer you purchase is authentic and not counterfeit. Counterfeit vapes can be dangerous so you want to take all possible precautions to avoid them. All of the retailers listed on our site are authorized so you can be sure that their inventory is always legit.
