People are going back and forth in the forums about what vaporizer is the greatest portable unit of all time. Well of course we are a little bias but that doesn’t mean we can’t have an honest discussion about what makes certain vaporizers better than others. Luckily for all of us there are a ton of different portable vapes to choose from and almost everyone that vapes regularly has collected more than one by now.
While some people have claimed that the Palm 2.0 is the portable vaporizer I think we all know that is pure poppycock. Sure the Palm might be a handy little vape good for when you are in a pinch but it lacks the power of the DaVinci and does not allow for multiple temperature settings. While they do come with a lifetime warranty you are more likely to lose the vaporizer than activate the warranty. It has a faster heat up time than the DaVinci and it comes in more colors but other than that it is far from the best portable vape we have seen over the last several years.
The Vapman has been gaining popularity and making a claim for the best portable butane/torch vaporizer on the market and I can understand why. It is simple and straight forward to use, works wonderfully and heats up super fast thanks to the powerful torch. It is also very inexpensive because there are no electronics involved. The most important thing to remember with the Vapman is not to hold it anywhere near your mouth or face while you are heating the pan. Some people have actually tried inhaling while the torch is pointed at their face and that is EXTREMELY dangerous. Please exercise extreme caution when using the Vapman and the butane torch. In short this is a great vaporizer but cannot be considered the best portable vaporizer.
The only true challenger to the DaVinci on this IMO is the Magic Flight Launch Box. It is cheap price-wise and very well made. Handcrafted here in the USA Magic Flight takes great pride in producing only the highest quality vaporizers possible. Similar to Palm in that you press down on a rechargeable battery to activate the heating element the MFLB heats up in just a few seconds. I would recommend the MFLB over the Palm any day, there is plastic and looks so much cooler. The Launch Box also has a ton of accessories that you can purchase such as a plugin power adapter, water bubbler attachment and a tray for vaping concentrates. I still prefer the precision temperature adjustments of the DaVinci but like I said previously the MFLB is a close second in the race for best portable vaporizer.
The Arizer Solo is one of the portable vaporizers that is most commonly compared against the DaVinci. It features one of the most powerful batteries of any portable vape and can last on one charge for up to four hours. While the looks my not be overly impressive the vapor that it produces is second to none. It is easy to use, has an LED temperature control system and comes in Black or Silver. The best part about the Arizer Solo is the glass draw stem, there are not plastic parts in between the heating chamber and the user. It is a bit larger than the DaVinci and does not fit as easily in your pants pocket. It is better suited for jacket pocket or backpack.
