Our pick Planet of the Vapes ONE - Way less than $200. If you only have $200 to spend, the Planet of the Vapes ONE will leave you well equipped, with some cash left to spend. It’s extremely compact, and heats up super fast, so you can bring it with you and sit down for a session wherever you might be. It’s built on an already popular vaporizer, with our special accessory attachment that lets you settle in for home sessions. It’s also a great starting point if you’re new to vaporizing.
It comes with everything you need to get up and running, and we include your choice of extra mouthpiece for the accessory attachment, like a tiny bubbler for well-cooled hits, or a water pipe adapter for your existing glass. If it doesn’t have to be quite so compact, the Arizer Solo II has a lot to offer. The glass stems are awesome for flavor and efficiency, and Arizer sends you everything you need to get started right in the box. It’s easy to use for personal sessions, or share with friends, and the huge battery means you won’t have to worry about charging it often. Sometimes the most important factor when buying a vaporizer is how easy it is to get up and running. Fortunately, we have some vaporizers that require little to no instructions to take you from vaporizer novice to session master, without sacrificing important features. These vapes are ready to go right out of the box, and are among our top-rated vaporizers. Beginning to end, the Mighty is the easiest vape around to use. It turns on with a single press of the clearly marked power button, has a large, easy to read screen with direct temperature control, and the adjustment buttons are up front and bright orange.
It even comes out of the box with an 80% charge, so it’s ready to go immediately. But it isn’t just the controls and simple setup, the Mighty is also easy to hit. You can draw as fast or as slow as you like, and the Mighty will happily produce flavorful, potent vapor. It’s easy to pass around and share with friends, without having to teach them how to use it. Everyone has a good time, and no one has to teach any lessons on how to vape. The medium-size, yet pocketable Boundless CFX boasts a big screen, clearly marked buttons, and a spacious oven for easy loading. It doesn’t need any special instructions, so you can hit it right away or hand it off to your friends for a quick session. Boundless is known for chunkier clouds, which makes it easy to see how much you’re taking in. To us, efficiency means squeezing every last bit out of each bit of herb you load into the oven. We want full extraction not just in terms of flavor, but in terms of the herb’s practical effects too. Our preference is for vaporizers that provide mostly convection heat at the beginning of the session, with more conduction heat as the oven itself heats up around the herbs. Storz & Bickel has plenty of practice dialing in their vapor, and it really shows. The Mighty’s blend of convection and conduction ensures every oven gets fully roasted, with no stirring required. Whether you like to take little sips, or long draws, you’ll see impressive results and smooth vapor. Plus, with some of the best battery life of any vaporizer we sell, it’s great for a long weekend. The Mighty’s digital controls aren’t just convenient, they also help with efficiency. You can slowly turn up the temperature over the course of a session or oven, or turn it down if you find you want some more flavor. With plenty of battery life, and support for the Storz & Bickel dosing capsules, you can run some easy side-by-side tests and see what you prefer, while getting the most out of every bit. Like the Mighty, the Solo II’s efficiency comes from the balance of convection and conduction heat. The glass stems keep the herb chamber cooler between hits, reducing waste and preserving flavor. With a small bowl and gentle heating when you’re not hitting it, the Solo 2 can be dialed in to really stretch your herbs. The most important factor when it comes to smooth vapor is cooling it down, typically by running it past a heat-absorbing material, or by slowing it down with fins or a circuitous airpath.
Our picks go out of their way to cool down that hot vapor before it can make you cough, for the smoothest experience possible. The Firefly 2+ has a unique take on cooling vapor, with a wide and shallow, mirrored channel that lets the vapor expand and cool before hitting your lips. Even on the hottest mode for concentrates, every sip is smooth and tasty. Slow draws help cool the vapor even more, making this handheld convection vaporizer a shoe-in when it comes to preventing coughs.
You can also dial in the experience to exactly how you like it with the app, so all you need to do is hold the buttons for the perfect hit.
