Portable vaporizers are defined by two things: that they’re
portable and they vaporize. Pretty straight forward, right?
Well, while that is true, the world of portable vapes actually
encompasses a wide range of different units.
Some are better than others, some are bigger or smaller, and
some cost a ton of money. Not to mention, the best
portable vape for one person might not be the best for
That’s why we wanted to write this guide. A lot of people,
especially those who are new to vaping, have no idea
where to start. They know they want a portable unit, but
with all the choices out there, they are left with more
questions than answers and don’t know which one to buy.
The first thing you need to consider is how much money you
want to spend. Once you have a budget in mind, it’s easier
to start narrowing your choices down.
Mid-range vapes are designed for people who want
something a little bit more advanced than the entry level
units, but still don’t want to drop a ton of cash on a higher
end unit. They are easier to use than something like the
MFLB or Vapor Genie, but will cost more (except for our
These will give an overall better vape experience than their
entry-level counterparts. All of the units we recommend
below are under $200.
The SOURCE Ghost is a great 3-in-1 vaporizer to hit the
market in late 2014. The unit can vaporize e-liquid,
concentrates, and dry herb.
Even though it only costs $99.99 (~$90 with our coupon
code), which normally would put it in our entry-level
category, the Ghost performs as well as a mid-range
vaporizer does, so we decided this category would be best.
With three temp settings, ranging from 374° F to 446° F, you
really get a full range of vaping with this unit. The device
only has one simple button, and to turn it on you only have
to click it three times. With it’s simple button, you can
change temperatures easily by just holding down the
button until the light changes from blue (374° F) to green
(410° F), and green to red (446° F).
Overall, the Ghost is a great unit, and you can purchase it for
less than some of the units in our entry-level category.
The Indica is a fairly new vaporizer to hit the market. It is
interestingly in the shape of a Zippo lighter, which would
be a huge positive if it was the size of an actual Zippo.
However, it’s about the size of a pack of cigarettes, so
it’s not quite as small as a lighter would be.
With that being said, it’s still very portable and fits perfectly
into your pocket.
To turn it on, you push the button near the mouth piece until
the LED turns on. Once it activates, you push the button
two times to change the temperature setting. There are 5
