Top 50 Vaporizers: Spring 2015 Edition

Posted by Vaped Staff last updated:


We've done it. After months of testing, a few heated arguments and countless empty boxes of pizza, our second quarterly top 50 vaporizer roundup is complete.

Please keep a few things in mind when going through this list:

  • These rankings are based on herbal vaporizers. If they can handle concentrates and oils - that's great and they may get bonus points - but our real goal is to find the best herbal vaporizers.
  • Our ratings are based on a combination of price, vapor density & flavour, functionality, design and unique features.
  • Just because we rank one vaporizer ahead of another doesn't mean that it's necessarily better. These rankings are subjective and based on our experiences; everybody's different. Do your research on 3rd party review sites before purchasing.
  • If we missed a vape or if you're furious about your vaporizer's ranking.. We're sorry. Please give us hell in the comments below.
Note for the spring update: There were two new additions with the Vapium SUMMIT and the PAX 2. The Goboof Alfa had an update with USB charging and a better heating element and so it moved up the rankings. The Herbalizer moved down because the company is in a bit of a limbo (read more).

Now on to the vapes!

#1

Crafty

Crafty Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.9

Price: $399

Summary

The Crafty is a piece of engineering genius from Storz & Bickel, the creators of the Volcano. It's small enough to fit in your pocket but has vapor quality that matches top-end desktop units. Simple to use but you can customize temperatures with your Apple or Android phone!

#2

Volcano

Volcano Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.8

As usual the Volcano made the top 5 vaporizer list.. I don't think it would be complete without it! Almost all vape lounges around the country stock the Volcano because it's a super duper balloon vaporizer. If you haven't tried it, have a bag to yourself and you'll see what we mean.

#3

Mighty

Mighty Vaporizer

#5

Herbalizer

Herbalizer Vaporizer

Rating: 4.7

Price: $729

The Herbalizer is hands down the best dual function - ballon and whip - vaporizer on the market. It's one of the highest priced vapes but it boasts the best current vapor quality, precise temperature control and quick heat up time. The Herbie is a beast of a vape.

#6

Haze

Haze Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.6

Price: $249

Goboof Alfa Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.6

Price: $219

Summary

The Goboof Alfa is an Irish made vaporizer that's positioning itself as the best pocket vape.. And it's doing a pretty good job. It's lightweight, feels durable and is the perfect size for a portable. With adjustable temperature and conduction heating the Alfa is looking to take off.

Rating: 4.4

Price: $159

See Arizer Solo Reviews

Summary

The Arizer Solo is a semi-portable vape that's renowned for having top notch vapor quality for its size. While it won't exactly fit in your pocket, the Solo is a perfect vaporizer for use around the house. Many die hards now attach it to water pipes to enhance the experience.

#11

Plenty

Plenty Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.4

Price: $349

Summary

The Plenty is another vaporizer by Storz & Bickel and can be described as a whip-style Volcano. Coming in at a fair $349, the Plenty is great value for your money. It has a massive herb chamber for long sessions and the vapor comes out smooth due to the cooling coil whip.

#12

Vapium SUMMIT

Vapium SUMMIT Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.3

Price: $189

The Vapium SUMMIT is a new vaporizer that’s designed for the outdoorsman… And they’ve done a great job! It’s a rugged little vaporizer that delivers as promised: it’s pocket friendly, there are 8 temperatures to choose from, and the vapor is tasty and smooth.

#13

Arizer
Extreme Q

Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.3

Price: $179

See Arizer Extreme Q Reviews

Summary

The Arizer Extreme Q is a desktop vape that's popular among vaporizer beginners.. and for good reason: it's all you really need for a great price. It comes standard with a whip and bags so you can give both a go. It even has a remote control to adjust the temperature!

#14

Silver Surfer

Silver Surfer Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.3

Price: $269

Summary

The Silver Surfer is a whip-style desktop vaporizer that's made by 7th Floor. The SSV is best known for hitting hard.. When you get the right temperature you can get huge clouds with this vape. It also comes with a great 3 year warranty.

#15

PAX 2

PAX 2 Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.3

Price: $379

Summary

The PAX 2 is the long anticipated follow up to the original PAX. It’s 25% smaller, has a longer battery life, has lip-sensing technology and distributes the heat more evenly. While it’s a fantastic vaporizer to throw in your pocket the price is just too steep to justify.

#16

Firefly

Firefly Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.2

Price: $369

Summary

The Firefly is a vaporizer with a unique form that makes it easy to clean and simple to use. The real benefit of the Firefly is that it heats up almost instantaneously.. You can go from herb to vapor in a couple seconds. It is portable but has some weight to it.

#17

Epic Vape E-Nano

Epic Vape E-Nano Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.2

Price: $199

Summary

The Epic Vape E-Nano is a super efficient log vaporizer. Log vapes look just like a piece of wood and look great on any living room table.. Unlike most vapes which try to mimic spacecrafts and Apple products. It also heats up instantly and delivers milky clouds.

#18

Magic Flight Launch Box

Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.2

Price: $119

Summary

The Magic Flight Launch Box is a unique portable vaporizer made of a single piece of wood. While it takes patience to use at first, once you learn the technique you can rip huge clouds. It's one of the best budget vapes on the market.

#19

Ploom Pax

Ploom Pax Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.2

Price: $249

Summary

The Pax is the "iPhone" of the vaporizer world. It's sleek, sexy, easy to use, and convenient. It's a great portable unit and definitely gets a high rating on the "coolness" scale but is tough to clean and lacks the depth of flavor found in higher end models.

#20

VapeXHale Cloud Evo

VapeXHale Cloud Evo Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.2

Price: $450 +

Summary

The VapeXHale Cloud Evo is a desktop vape that hits like a truck. If you're a heavy water pipe user this is probably your best bet to replicate the experience. Other vapes have water pipe attachments as a secondary thought.. not the Evo.

#21

DaVinci

DaVinci Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 4.1

Price: $199

Summary

A tried and true classic, the DaVinci is a stellar portable vaporizer. It has a solid build that can handle a few drops and offers precise temperature control so you can vape how you want. One of its downsides is that it can be tough to clean due to its latching mechanism.

#22

Vapir Rise 2.0

Vapir Rise 2.0 Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.0

Price: $249

Summary

The Vapir Rise is known in the vaporizer world for being the "hookah vape". It has a multi-user attachment included that lets it act just like a hookah. It can also handle balloons and uses a HEPA air filter which makes it a great desktop option.

#23

Da Buddha

Da Buddha Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.0

Price: $179

Summary

The Da Buddha is made by 7th Floor and offers a very similar expericen to the Silver Surfer vaporizer, except it's got a little less going for it (which it makes up for in price). At its pricepoint, the Da Buddha is probably your best bet for a desktop cause it can crank out vapor.

#24

Arizer V Tower

Arizer V Tower Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 4.0

Price: $149

Summary

The V Tower is Arizer's low cost alternative to the Extreme Q - it's cheaper but lacks the remote control and balloon options. It's price is right though and if you're looking for a whip vaporizer you can do far, far worse than the Arizer V Tower.

#25

Vapir NO2

Vapir NO2 Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.9

Price: $149

Summary

The NO2 is the portable offering by Vapir, the company that makes the Rise. It's got temperature control, average vapor quality and okay battery life which makes it a decent pick for its price. It's just kind of bulky, you wouldn't want it in your pocket.

#26

Flowermate
v5.0s

Flowermate v5.0s Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.9

Price: $129

Summary

The Flowermate 5.0s is the improved version on the original. It's an exciting vaporizer because it delivers big vapor clouds, has good battery life and fits in your pocket. It just sucks that they're based in China, it makes warranty issues are a hassle.

#27

Life Saber

Life Saber Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 3.8

Price: $199

Summary

The Life Saber is 7th Floors final offering on the list, but differs from the SSV and DBV. It's a got a unique "light-saber" look and draws great vapor right off the bat. Overall it’s a pretty underappreciated vaporizer and we think it needs some more lovin.

#28

HerbalAire Elite

HerbalAire Elite Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 3.8

Price: $349

Summary

The HerbalAire Elite is a vape that gives you many inhalation methods: fill a balloon, use a whip, use directly or connect it to a water pipe. It also offers precise temperature control and has a nice sleek look to it. Thing is, there are equally good desktop vaporizers available for less.

#29

HerbalAire H2.2

HerbalAire H2.2 Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 3.7

Price: $199

Summary

The HerbalAire H2.2 is the more affordable option to the Elite. It's cemented itself as a quality desktop vaporizer that simply does a good job with balloons and a whip. The only thing is that it isn't as efficient with herb as other desktop vapes in a similar price range.

#30

PUFFiT 2

PUFFiT 2 Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.7

Price: $99

Summary

The PUFFiT 2 is the new and improved version of the original puffer look-a-like vaporizer. Discreet Vape made a few improvements by making it smaller and also making the battery last longer. For only $99 the PUFFiT 2 is a great deal for a secondary pocket vape.

#31

Vapor Genie

Vapor Genie Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.6

Price: $60

Summary

The Vapor Genie is a wooden vaporizer that mimics the looks of a pipe. Its beauty comes from its simplicity: you just pack the bowl, light underneath the bowl and you get vapor! If you're looking for a bare basics vaporizer the Vapor Genie is a great way to go.

#32

Iolite WISPR 2.0

Iolite WISPR 2 Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.6

Price: $169

Summary

The Iolite WISPR 2.0 is a butane vaporizer made by Oglesby & Butler, an Irish company that began making butane hand tools in 1984. What you get with the WISPR 2.0 is a well-made product that delivers decent vapor. Battery powered just seems to be more convenient.

#33

Lotus

Lotus Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.6

Price: $124

Summary

The Lotus is a little vaporizer that is powered by a torch lighter. Although it works efficiently on its own the real beauty of the Lotus comes when it's attached to a water pipe. The Pipe/WPA kit makes the Lotus the perfect attachment; it's lightweight and delivers big clouds.

#34

PUFFiT-X

PUFFiT-X Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.5

Price: $169

Summary

The PUFFiT-X is the upgraded version of the original PUFFiT vape and features 8-step temperature with a forced air fan system. It's a nice discreet vaporizer and has decent battery length for its size, but the vapor quality isn't great.

#35

Pinnacle Pro

Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.5

Price: $219

Summary

The Pinnacle Pro is a thick pen-style vaporizer made by VaporBlunt that started the Water Pipe attachment on a portable vape movement. While the Hydrotube it was a great innovation for portable vapes unfortunately it's been copied for many other companies.

#36

Inhalater INH05

Inhalater INH05 Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.4

Price: $249

Summary

The Inhalater INH05 is another pen-style herbal vape that is made close by in Montreal. It works with a pretty innovative feature of putting your herb in capsules before hand, which is great for the go. While it doesn't look as sleek as other portables it's a good option.

#37

Firewood

Firewood Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.4

Price: $89

Summary

The Firewood is a pocket vaporizer with a wood exterior. The Firewood has a lot going for it.. The battery life is good, it looks great and you can get nice hits from it. That being said, it does have a pretty steep learning curve but it's a steal for the price.

#38

G Pro

G Pro Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.4

Price: $99

Summary

The G Pro is basically a rebrand from the Chinese Titan-2 by Grenco Science, the maker of the G Pen. Although the company made no innovations themselves the G Pro is still a handy pocket vape that won't give you great flavour; but it won't combust the herb either.

#39

Aromed

Aromed Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 3.3

Price: $449

Summary

The Aromed is a medical looking device that heats up with the use of a halogen bulb. You can get really big hits from the Aromed but it just looks a little scary. While it was once considered a beast, there are other high-end vaporizers that have eclipsed the Aromed.

#40

Atmos Transporter

Atmos Transporter Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.3

Price: $164

Summary

The Transporter is one of the vaporizers among Atmos' big 2014 release. While it steals its shape and form from other similar vaporizers, it’s a good option if you want a pocket vaporizer on a budget. It's pretty basic, but has a sleek look to it and the vapor is surprisingly smooth.

#41

VaporBlunt 2.0

VaporBlunt 2.0 Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.2

Price: $249

Summary

The VaporBlunt 2.0 s a portable vaporizer with a big herb chamber, variable temperature control and that can connect to water pipes. It's a pretty good unit but the vapor quality isn't phenomenal, it's pretty fragile for a portable vape and it's not nice to look at.

#42

Iolite Original

Iolite Original Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 3.1

Price: $129

Summary

The Iolite Original broke in to the scene as a pretty revolutionary vaporizer; it was small and actually vaporized the herb instead of burning it. Unfortunately for the Iolite, since then many other vaporizers have been released which make it pretty outdated.

#43

Hotbox

Hotbox Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 3.0

Price: $169

Summary

The Hotbox is a desktop vaporizer that looks as advertised; it's a box. Or more specifically, a cube. It's whip only and delivers some nice cool vapor. The Hotbox is a nice vaporizer for beginners as it's really simple to set up and get vaping.

#44

Vapor Brothers

Vapor Brothers Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 3.0

Price: $149

Summary

Vapor Brothers have been around for about a decade now. The vape doesn't offer any fancy features of some newer vapes but it's built of high quality materials and does deliver some smooth vapor. There's also a lifetime warranty included which is pretty impressive.

#45

Vapman

Vapman Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 2.9

Price: $89

Summary

The Vapman is a cool looking portable unit that delivers some pretty tasty vapor for its price. It is butane powered though which means you need to continually buy new canisters if you want to use it. Also some pieces, like the mouthpiece, are made of pretty shoddy plastic.

#46

The Hammer

The Hammer Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 2.9

Price: $139

Summary

The Hammer is a unique butane-powered vaporizer. It's built tough and great for outdoor trips that provide no electricity. Due to the fact that it has internal butane heating and such a short heating path it's a bit of a worry that you'll inhale fumes though.

#47

Easy Vape Digital

Easy Vape Digital Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 2.8

Price: $79

Summary

The Easy Vape Digital is one of the cheapest box-style desktop vaporizers available. It does have "precise" temperature control, but most of the time even when you change the temp.. The vapor stays the same. It's not a bad device if you just want to test out vaping.

#48

Zephyr Ion

Zephyr Ion Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 2.7

Price: $459

Summary

The Zephyr Ion is a balloon vaporizer. It's coolest feature is that it can connect to your computer to set up schedules for it to heat up.. So you can have a bag waiting for you when you get home. Unfortunately it's over priced, a little outdated and doesn't look very nice.

#49

Sonic

Sonic Vaporizer

Type: Portable

Rating: 2.7

Price: $199

Summary

The Sonic is a relatively new vaporizer that has a nice sleek look to it with a fancy shmancy digital display. Looks are all the Sonic's really got going for it though.. The battery life is lackluster and there are many better portable options in its price range.

#50

Deluxe Daddy

Deluxe Daddy Vaporizer

Type: Desktop

Rating: 2.6

Price: $169

Summary

The Deluxe Daddy is another box-style whip vaporizer that looks similar to both the Vapor Brothers and EVD. It's made of pretty cheap materials (clearly made in China), takes a long time to heat up and is just over priced for what you get.
