Vaporizer Buying Guide 2019

First things first, there is no “Best Vaporizer.” I’m very sorry! But there can be the best vaporizer for a person and situation. The experience people can have with a specific vaporizer can vary from person to person, that’s because everyone values different kinds of features.

I want to mention right away; I did not test every vaporizer myself yet. There are simply too many, but I am catching up vape by vape. Please read more about our ratings on our about page. We often adjust vaporizer ratings after using them more often.

Feel free to message us your questions or opinions about vaporizers via Twitter, Instagram or Reddit. We’re happy to help.

Things to consider

Here are some features you should look out for, and questions you should ask yourself when choosing a vaporizer:

Build Quality & Used Materials
Some vapes feel more sturdy than others. Do you want a perfectly designed & well-built vape or is it not so important, and you rather prefer a lower price? How important is the build quality for you?

Vaporizers are made out of plastic, glass, steel, aluminum, wood and ceramic elements. And don’t worry, when a vape uses plastic for a mouthpiece it’s not necessarily bad. They are usually food-grade materials. Even the Mighty has a plastic mouthpiece and is one of the most popular vapes out there. What’s your preferred material?

Size & Weight
How portable does your vaporizer need to be? Do you usually use it at home or mainly on-the-go? How important is it, that your vape fits into your pocket? Smaller vapes are not necessarily the better choice when you opt-in for optimal portability; some smaller vapes can get much hotter than bigger ones.

Battery
Do you need a big battery or are you okay with charging it daily, as you do with your smartphone? Are you often using your vape on-the-go, so a replaceable battery might be great?

Session or On-Demand Vaping
Do you prefer long sessions or a few hits at a time is all you need? Well, you need to decide this for yourself. What’s for sure is that most vapes are meant for vaping in sessions and only a few are suitable for on-demand vaping.

Temperature Controls
Some electronic vapes work with a preset of temperatures, others let you precisely adjust the temperature. Certain vapes have special kind of settings, like a smart path or boost mode.

Vapor Quality & Bowl Size
The vapor quality is something that can vary by so many factors. The strain of herbs, how moisture it is, how tightly you pack a bowl, the temperature, and many more factors. It’s hard to determine the vapor quality of a vaporizer. I fill the bowls full, since that’s what is recommended in general. Some vapes work better with loosely packed bowls than others.

Smartphone Apps / Yay or Nay
Some vapes come with a Smartphone app; most don’t. Apps normally give you more control of the device and make handling it more convenient. On the contrary, it can make you kind of dependent on your phone. Even though vaporizers that feature apps can typically also be used without them, but somehow it makes you feel missing out on functionality. My experience with apps was surprisingly great so far.

Ease of use / Cleaning
Last but not less important is the simplicity or ease of use of your vaporizer. You don’t want a vape that frustrates you every time you use it. You want a vape, that you can turn on and start vaping without hassle. The cleaning process is rather important as well. Keep in mind that certain devices need more care than others.
