Carry in your pocket for discreet any-time medication. Most run on special rechargeable batteries and a few of these are as strong as some plug-in units three times their size.

→ Arizer Solo ✓ Highly Recommended Medium-sized, delivers steady thick clouds; 7 temperatures offer nice range; not super stealthy
→ Pax ✓ Highly Recommended Powerful hits in a slick and stealthy stick; good battery; large herb capacity; requires cleaning often
→ PUFFiT Looks like asthma inhaler; recharge via USB; 8 temperature settings; one charge = 30 heat cycles or about 80 hits
→ Thermovape Durable; can be boiled clean to remove sticky resin; works with oils and concentrates; slim, modern design; stealthy
→ Magic-Flight Launch Box ✓ Highly Recommended Beautifully simple wooden box; near-instant warm-up; super efficient and discreet portable; hits require practice
→ VaporGenie ✗ Not Recommended Hard to use and requires wasteful lighters; bulky; spend your money on a quality portable vape with rechargeable batteries instead

→ iolite Slim and easy-to-use; good air flow when inhaling; sturdy design; nice temperature setting keeps herb from burning
Desktop vaporizers that you use at home. Powerful, sturdy and great for groups of people or regular medication sessions. Plug these in the wall like a toaster and turn it on, most are ready to use in a few minutes.
→ Herbalizer ✓ Highly Recommended Fastest & most-accurate temperatures; use bags or whips, dry herbs or oils; most efficient desktop vape, medical-grade
→ Da Buddha ✓ Highly Recommended Durable and designed for regular use; stays cool; nice temperature knob adjustments; quick warm-up; very affordable
→ Hot Box Decent starter vape; reliable over years of use; we’d recommend upgrading to Da Buddha for adjustable temperature in a better designed case
→ Arizer Extreme Versatile: use either vapor tube or balloon bag; strong vapor hits; remote control; optional battery makes it portable; an affordable Volcano alternative
→ Vapor King ✗ Not Recommended These cheapie wooden vaporizers tend to last about 6 months of use and then stop working. Save your money
→ Volcano Digit We favor the Volcano Classic over the Digit as there are fewer things that can go wrong with a simple knob, plus it saves a few bucks
