Portable vaporizers are the most popular form of vaporizer in 2017. They are small, compact and powerful as technology advances. Today we’re going to go over our Top 10 Portable Vaporizers. We take into account quality, price, convenience and performance in our rankings, as well as user reviews and feedback on other sites. Without further ado, let’s jump into it.
Top 4 Portable Vaporizers in $129-$170 Range
Unfortunately, all of the high-quality vaporizers are going to be in this price range. If you go under $130, you are probably going to be looking at something that lacks in vapor quality/production, sturdiness, and just generally isn’t going to match the ones in this category. There are good options that we’ll go over below, but if you are investing in an expensive vape, you’re probably better putting another $100 in to get something great.

Our Definition of a Portable Vaporizer
Pocket vaporizers come in all different shapes, sizes and styles. We only have two rules that a vape must follow to quality as an actually portable: it must fit in your pocket and it must efficiently vaporize dry herb. The ability to work with wax or oils is simply a bonus, not necessary. A vaporizer pen doesn’t fit this definition because there is really not a single pen out there that can vaporize dry herb effectively. A desktop vaporizer doesn’t fit this definition because it can’t fit in your pocket.
You will see some vaporizers on this page that are even smaller than some vape pens, but this is because they actually can work with dry herb. These vapes typically aren’t shaped like a pen, and usually have a bit of an odd design. Standard portable vaporizers typically have a base and a straw, they don’t usually have whips or bags like some of the popular desktop vapes out there today. If you are going to use only dabs, check out our list of the best wax pens to find the right one for you.
