Most Portable Vaporizer UK
Decision Based on: Weight, Size, Discreetness and Concealment
The PAX 3 was selected as the most portable vaporizer on the market in 2019 for a good reason. It resembles a portable charger, which makes it incredibly discreet and compact enough to fit just about any tight pocket. It also fits nicely in your hand and gives you one of the highest quality vaping experiences out there.
Comparing the PAX 3 to the PAX 2 reveals one of the most notable features of the PAX 3; you are now able to vape both dry herbs and concentrates, thanks to a new concentrate insert. The PAX 3 offers an impressive level of discretion while remaining to be a truly stunning piece of kit. All this is rare to come by in a single vape, and that’s why we found the PAX 3 to be a top vaporizer in the market today.
It comes with a 3500mAh battery, which is an upgrade from the 3000mAh on the predecessor. The pre-heat times of the PAX 3 range between 15 seconds to 20 seconds, compared to the 45 seconds of the PAX 2.
You can control the PAX 3 with an app, which ideally gives you complete control over the range of temperatures (360F to 420F). there are also options to choose different heating profiles, changing the color themes, locking the device, dimming the LED, or completely locking the device.
PAX Labs have made changes to the outer construction of the PAX 3 by replacing the brushed aluminum used on the PAX 2 with a polished finish. We found the new shiny surface to hold up incredibly well, though it’s a bit more susceptible to fingerprint smudges and scratches. That said, it still provides the same awesome vaping experience.
Users love the new concentrate insert. However, it most likely won’t be replacing your dab ring or e-nail, since other produces on the market can actually satisfy these needs more efficiently. Still, the insert extracts the materials incredibly well and doesn’t leave a big mess behind. Nonetheless, it doesn’t get close to being as hot as the conventional methods.
On a single charge, you can expect an average of 100 minutes of use, and it will take about 100 minutes to charge a dead PAX 3 fully. The Half-Pack lid is a nice extra feature for those solo sessions. Plus, you don’t need to get third party accessories anymore in order to maximize efficiency. The included concentrate insert also offers an excellent option for using other materials instead of dry herbs.
At Vapor Blog, we found the PAX 3 to be as good as it can probably get when it comes to portable dry herb vaporizer. And if you consider the portability, durability, overall ease of use, and the battery life, you can easily see why. The company also offer a wide selection of PAX accessories that you can check out.
Most Compact Vaporizer UK
Based on: Portability and Concealment
From its name to the set of feature, the DaVinci IQ is one of the most sophisticated and arguably advanced vaporizer kit on the market today. For such a compact device, the DaVinci IQ houses a variety of features that we have more than fallen in love with. The precision engineering and incredible attention to detail is simply unmatched. The heating chamber and the vapor path are all made from Ceramic Zirconia, which is basically optimized ceramic, giving you great flavors vape after vape and promoting durability.
The DaVinci IQ also fits nicely in your hand, and its design is one of the most sophisticated on the vaporizer world. In fact, its appearance gives the competition a run for their money. It’s available in plenty of colors, so you can easily find one that’s perfect for your lifestyle. It weighs a tiny 5 ounces, and the dimensions stand at 1.65” W x 3.53” H x 0.94” D, making it one of the most discreet and compact vaporizers out there today, without forgetting all the amazing features it packs.
The construction is made with precision engineering from high quality materials, which culminates into one of the most well-built devices with the highest quality vapors. Speaking of, the vapor is so smooth and full of flavor, and with good maintenance practices, the DaVinci IQ will give you satisfying sessions use after use. The temperature range starts at 250F to 430F and you can use an app to control the right temperature for maximum discretion.
As if this wasn’t enough, the device includes a Boost Mode. To activate it, simply hold down the power button – the power will continue to increase while holding it until you let the button go. This will come in handy when you need that extra oomph during a session. The battery life lasts for about 50 to 80 minutes based on how often you use it and the temperature setting. We do recommend that you invest in an extra pack of batteries so that you’ll always have another charged batter when your DaVinci IQ dies on you while on the go.
From its size, its features, and its design, the DaVinci IQ vaporizer oozes sophistication and functionality. It’s no surprise then that it has been voted as the best compact vaporizer on the market today. It fits in your hands and pockets nicely, and we think that whether you’re a beginner in the vaping world or an enthusiast looking to move onto the next best thing, you will undoubtedly love the DaVinci IQ vaporizer.

The app for the DaVinci IQ has also been voted as one of the best apps for vaping devices by a number of our users. It’s fluid in design, incredibly easy to use, and connects to your device rather easily. DaVinci have gone out of their way to enhance the user experience on this device, just when we thought they couldn’t possibly do any better than they already have. The app lets you take screenshots and share your paths with friends and other users, and if you’re looking for new ways to enjoy your DaVinci IQ, all these are at your disposal.
Although the app makes your life much easier when using the vaporizer on the go and helps to promote discretion, it’s important to mention that you don’t necessarily need to use the app for the device to work. You can easily control the vapor path setting, temperature settings, and even dim the LED lights on the device itself.
If we were to summarize our experience and review of the DaVinci IQ in 3 words, they would be: Innovative, Compact, and Consistent. Although the price might seem a bit steep, keep in mind that getting a good vaporizer is an investment. And with proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy every session on your DaVinci IQ further down the line just as you did you first.
Best Battery Life
Based on: Average battery life after full charge
Storz & Bickel are known for developing high quality vaporizers and have established themselves as a leading brand of vaporizers on the market that are effective and can be relied on no matter the occasion. Their line of products such as the Volcano Vaporizers have been on the market for more than a decade and are still considered some of the leading desktop vaporizers available. The Mighty Vaporizer is made with the same precision engineering as the Volcano, and is currently making waves in the portable vaporizer market.
Despite having a plastic construction, the Mighty Vaporizer has a high quality appearance and feels durable, which are the things most people look for in a vaporizer. There’s an extra battery included in its unique design, making this one stunning piece of kit that combine both beauty and functionality to produce a truly phenomenal vaping experience. The buttons on the body are nicely responsive, and there’s a clear and bright display that shows you the battery life, the current temperature settings. As such, you will be aware of how much time you have left to enjoy your session no matter where you are.
The Mighty Vaporizer also has a phenomenal vapor quality. It produces smooth hits and powerful flavors, and there’s really no competition when it comes to these with the Mighty Vaporizer. And while the construction is plastic, the Mighty Vaporizer doesn’t give off the taste of plastic while vaping; instead, it delivers a cloudful of vapor that’s smooth, full of flavor, and very satisfying.
The Mighty Vaporizer was made to be seen and is actually a force to be reckoned with. For those who prefer vaporizers with a bit more discretion, the Mighty Vaporizer might not be the one for you. The added battery that’s incorporated into the design inevitably increases its footprint and thereby limits the discretion. In fact, the device is larger than a number of its competitors. With this in mind, it’s still relatively portable, so if you aren’t bothered much about discretion, the Mighty Vaporizer might be the perfect choice for you.
Storz & Bickel have made a name for themselves in the vaporizer market when it comes to the efficiency of their vaporizers, and the Mighty is no exception. It essentially gives you enjoyable sessions use after use. Aside from its efficiency, the Mighty Vaporizer is a high tech vaporizer packed with so many feature, which begs the question, how easy is it to use? Well, we found it to be really easy to use, and is suitable for both professionals and newbies.
The Mighty works in four simple steps:
- Load it up
- Turn the device on
- Set your preferred temperature
- Wait for a few moments
There’s also an auto shut-off feature that triggers at 60 seconds. This helps to prolong your battery life, so that you’ll enjoy as many sessions as possible when you’re on the go. There’s also very little resistance to the draws, and all these culminate in making the Mighty Vaporizer from Storz & Bickel a favorite here at Vapor Blog.
At Vapor Blog, we only provide our customers with the best available vaporizers, and the Mighty is no exception. It produces high quality and smooth vapors that are full of flavor. This, along with its sturdy build, incredible ease of use, and long lasting battery life means that you can’t really go wrong with the Mighty Vaporizer.
Best Desktop Vaporizer
Based on: Weight, Size, Vapour Quality and Build-quality
Although everyone loves vaping on the go, those looking to enjoy a session at the comfort of their home with their friends or alone are going to love the Volcano Digital Vaporizer. This desktop wonder has gained a long-standing reputation for being one of the best products in the game, and it’s no surprise that it’s still considered one of the best desktop vaporizers in the market today. The volcano-like profile is a good indication of the power and strength of this vaporizer – you’d be crazy not to get one!
It’s worth mentioning that there are known fake Volcano Digital Vaporizers out there, and although they look the same with the original and come at a cheaper price, they won’t last as long in the long run, and could be injurious to your health.
The Volcano Digital Vaporizer has quite a steep price but as mentioned before, it’s more of a long-term investment for both your health, quality, and your love for vaping. The device oozes power and quality with its volcano-like profile, and you’ll know from the get go that you’ll get a powerful and incredible experience.
Instead of being mass produced in China like other devices, the Volcano Digital Vaporizer is precision-made in Germany by engineers with a special emphasis on durability, high quality construction, and use of sturdy materials to produce a powerful piece of kit that can stand proud on your desk. The Easy Valve Set easily clips into your unit, leaving little room for any kind of mishaps when assembling the device prior to use. Using a convection heating system and featuring a large base, your dried oils or botanicals will be heated evenly, and you’re guaranteed of a truly incredible session, use after use.
Although the Volcano Digital Vaporizer at first glance appears as a sophisticated piece of equipment that only advanced vapers can use, it’s actually the opposite. The device is actually really easy to use for beginners and professionals alike. The Volcano Digital Vaporizer comes with a digital display unit, which is one of the features we like best here at Vapor Blog. It lets you control the temperature right down to the degree, meaning that whether it’s herbs or oils you enjoy vaping, you’ll get the perfect temperature for you.
Using the Volcano Digital Vaporizer is really simple. All you need to do is fill up the chamber with your desired product, close it up, and then set your desired temperature. Wait for your favourite product to heat up and then attach the included easy valve. Then, engage the fan and watch as your balloon fills up with delicious vapour. The device uses a bag-style system, and while some desktop vaporizers require a whip, the Volcano Digital Vaporizer lends you the freedom of filling up the bag with delicious vapour, detach it, and go ahead and enjoy the vapour as you’d like.
Having had the long-standing reputation for being the best desktop vaporizer available on the market today, competitors have constantly tried to match the incredible vapour quality and performance of the Volcano Digital Vaporizer but have failed to even come close to Storz & Bickel’s standards. As such, it’s likely going to remain as the best desktop vaporizer on the market for quite some time, since they have essentially combined the desires of their customer base with precision engineering to craft a truly incredible vaping device.
Best Overall Vaporizer
Based on: Weight, Size, Vapour Quality Material Quality, and Price
G Pen Elite Vaporizer – £89.99
The G Pen Elite was named “Elite” for a reason. Having been voted as the best overall vaporizer, this vaporizer is at the top of its game in almost all categories. With virtually the largest ceramic heating chamber you can find on the vaporizer market, the G Pen Elite uses an innovative conduction 360 heating element, making sure that your herbs are heated evenly, in no time. This way, you can enjoy your session as soon as you need it.
The pen screams attention to detail from the moment you start unboxing to using the actual product. It combines beauty and functionality, which is by no means a simple fete, and we’re impressed that Grenco Science have managed to create a device that has both.
The construction is high-grade plastic, which makes the G-pen incredibly durable, with its inbuilt digital display fitting seamlessly with the design of the vape. It’s so nicely done that you can hardly tell it’s there until you turn it on. And as said earlier, its innovative, large heating chamber heats your dry herbs evenly while delivering consistently thick clouds that are full of flavour from the start to the end. It’s actually a step up from the previous models on the G Pen line, and we’ve simply fallen in love with the G Pen Elite.
They say “don’t judge a book by its cover” but in this case, you can judge the G Pen Elite as much as you want because it performs as good as it looks. Its temperature settings range from 98C to 220C (200 to 428F) and if you’re new to vaping, you can easily find the right temperature for you with a bit of trial and error. The device heats up your dry herb evenly in just under 30 seconds, which is quite impressive compared to some of the competitors in this price range that can take up to a minute.
The all black exterior gives the G Pen Elite a classy yet sleek appearance, which combined with the ergonomic fingerhold that’s built into the design, makes the vaporizer feel like it belongs in your hand. The device is about 4.4” long, which makes it capable of fitting into just about any pocket, and while it’s made from plastic with no movable parts, it’s one of the most durable and portable devices on the market today.
It comes with a 2200mAh Lithium Ion battery, which lasts an average of 10 to 15 full sessions based on your temperature settings. This means that you can take the G Pen Elite anywhere without having to worry about when you’ll need to charge it next.
The G Pen Elite’s reputation as the best vaporizer on the market today is for a good reason. It’s suitable for both beginners and vaping enthusiasts alike, as it packs lots of features into a small handheld device. We think that Grenco Science have really stepped up their game with this one, and we’re head over heels in love with the G Pen Elite.
Best Mid-Range Vaporizer
Based on: Overall Quality, Size, and Price
PAX 2 Vaporizer – £129.95
This is the ideal vaporizer for those who are just starting out or those looking for a relatively cheap vaporizer. After the release of the PAX 3, the PAX 2 has had a significant price drop, making it one of the top vaporizers on the mid-range market. Many people with a budget of around £150 are investing in the PAX 2 instead of the PAX 3, which is considerably more expensive.
Coming in at under £130, you couldn’t get a much better vaporizer in terms of the vapour quality and build than the PAX 2. It’s made from high quality materials, and with such an impressive attention to detail, the PAX 2 is a stunning piece of equipment that combines simplicity and function in its design.
Its mouthpiece is made from food-grade, high quality silicone, and you have the option of getting a raised mouthpiece or one that’s flush with the design, which improves discretion. The PAX 2 uses a conduction heating system that heats up your favourite dry herbs evenly, and produces thick clouds of smoke that are full of flavour. The vaporizer’s innovative design includes lip sensing technology that prolongs the battery life when it’s not in use, and helps to preserve your herbs.
The battery life is between 50 and 90 minutes, which might not be ideal if you are on the go for a long period of time. In such a case, you might have to invest in a portable charging option for situations where you’re on the go. Checking the battery percentage on the PAX 2 is one of our favourite features on the vaporizer. You simple need to shake the device, and voila! 4 petals on the anodized finish show you how much battery you have left – 25% to 100%. For a vaporizer at this price range, it’s no surprise that it was awarded the best mid-range vaporizer on the market, with its high quality construction and features in mind.
At Vapor Blog, we recommend that if you’re on a limited budget and you still want to get a high quality vaporizer, the PAX 2 is a perfect choice for you. But if you can afford the PAX 3, then go ahead and buy it because it comes with a number of new features such as the ability to control it via an app on your Apple or Android device.

Storz & Bickel is a company that has made a reputation for itself by producing some of the best quality vaporizers available today, such as the Volcano Classic and the Volcano Digital. And while these are desktop vaporizers, the company has revolutionized the portable vaporizer niche. Understandably, it’s quite a tough task to build products that are of good enough quality to be featured on the list of the best vaporizers for 2019, but they’ve done it! Plus, they’ve used the same precision engineering and high quality construction on the Crafty Vaporizer, which has ideally changed the game as we know it.
The Crafty Vaporizer is one of the most portable devices on the vaporizer market, and all of us at Vapor Blog have been left speechless by it. It only has one button that turns the device on, and everything else is controlled via an app, which is incredible easy to use and fluid. This helps to enhance the discretion of the device while you’re on the go, considering that you can set up the device while it’s still in your pocket; from your phone.
The loading process is something you’ll probably never have to worry about. You can simply load up the device with your preferred amount and you’re all set. With a convection heating system, you’re guaranteed that your herbs will be evenly heated, giving you a smooth vapour that’s full of flavour.

But this is an area that Storz & Bickel thrive. They’ve been known to create vapes with precision engineering and high quality materials. And although The Crafty Vaporizer is made from plastic, it’s very durable and you can be sure there’s no taste of plastic on your vapour while vaping.
It also fits nicely in your hand, and with its ribbed edges, it has a good grip and is good at dissipating the heat it generated. The vaporizer is simply a force to be reckoned with.

The Firefly 2 makes it to the top vaporizer with the best vapor quality for a good reason. It comes with a glass vapor pathway, which ensures that your vapor doesn’t mingle with electronics or other materials that might affect the taste of the vapor.
The Firefly 2 uses a convention heating system, which heats up your product fast while producing thick, flavorful, clouds of vapor depending on the temperature you’ve set it to. The process of setting up the vaporizer before using it is one of the things we’ve fallen in love with for this device. You control the Firefly 2 through a fluid and well-designed app, and even if you’re new to the vaping world, you’ll feel right at home when using it.
Another feature that can’t go unmentioned with the Firefly 2 is that the heating process stops when you stop pressing the button after taking a hit. This helps to conserve your dry herb or concentrate, and prolongs the length of your session. The incredibly set of features on this device, along with the functionality and beautiful design makes the Firefly 2 such a compelling device – one that will make you wonder why you didn’t start vaping sooner.

Best Upgraded Vaporizer
Based on: Improvements Over the Previous Model
For quite some time now, Arizer have been in our radar, and while we’ve enjoyed using some of their older products, we’ve been stunned by the developments and improvements that they did on the Arizer Air II. Arizer have somehow managed to improve on what was already a high quality vaporizer, which is always welcome.
One of the most notable difference with the new Arizer Air II is the display LCD. It has not only been improved in terms of the functionality of the device, but has also made it more desirable in our eyes. The screen lets you set more precise temperature setting, making this a really well-rounded vape for the price.
With its excellent vapor quality and the high quality finish, the Arizer Air II is durable and also guarantees you satisfactory and enjoyable sessions from start to finish.

There’s also a shut off feature that helps to conserve the battery, preserve your herbs, and improves on the general safety. All these makes the Arizer Air II a great investment for newbies and vaping enthusiasts alike.
In comparison to the Air I, the battery life of the Arizer Air II has improved substantially. The construction also feels incredibly durable, and its smaller footprint makes it a portable powerhouse. Overall, the Arizer Air II is a big leap forward from its predecessor, which admittedly we never thought was impossible. Nonetheless, the Arizer Air II is suitable for novices and enthusiasts, and there simply isn’t a better upgrade than the Arizer Air II.

The Black Widow holds up to 0.5g of your dry herb, so you can enjoy your sessions for as long as you like without panicking about refilling the heating chamber after a few draws. It also has a relatively low draw resistance, in a way that you won’t have to go to hell for getting a good draw from the vape.
There’s also 5 temperature settings, each with its own color LED lights, and you have the freedom of easily chopping and changing your desired temperature until you find the perfect one for you. And if that isn’t enough, the device evenly heats up your favorite dry herb in less than 30seconds, such that no matter where you are, you can enjoy a quick session, even when on the go. It also has a responsive one button system that makes the sleek device easy to use, and with the included 2200 mAh battery (Lithium ion) it’s the perfect companion while you’re on the go. There’s also a 5-minute auto shut-off feature that not only helps promote safety, but also preserves your herb, so that you get the most of it.
Unsurprisingly, the Black Widow has made lots of waves in the vaping community, its sleek and incredible design comes in a variety of colors, and there really should be one out there for everyone. Here at Vapor Blog, we’ve all fallen in love with the Black Widow, especially for its sleek and lightweight design, while fitting nicely in your hand via its ergonomic design. It’s also small in its design, so it can fit nicely in your pocket and hand without drawing too much attention to yourself.
The Black Widow is one of the latest additions to the Vapor Blog family, and we’ve welcomed it with open arms. We’re so excited about sharing it with you. For a vape that comes at this price level, you’ll be surprised as we are to realize that it’s an incredibly well built piece of kit that will fit into your vaping arsenal no matter your experience level in vaping. It was actually voted as the best vape under £60 you can buy, and we aren’t surprised of the amount of attention it’s getting.
Best Value Pipe
Based on: Weight, Size, Discreetness, and Concealment
The Genius Pipe – £69.95
The Genius Pipe is not named “Genius” for no reason. Its waterless filtration system is arguably a revolution from Genius Pipe. This innovative product is essentially a new take on a smoking classic, which some people (even us) would regard it as a modern masterpiece of smoking wonderment. With the use of a well-developed and well-known simple technology, this pipe has pretty incredible filtering and cooling capabilities.
It comes in a minimalistic 3-piece design that makes carrying it around really easy, since you can prepack the bowl with your favorite dry herb and just slide the cover back over before you leave the house, and that’s it. You can toke wherever, whenever, even while on the go.
The Pipe is ideally a combustion pipe like no other. Fill up the bowl, light it up, and take a drag. It lets you inhale a nice cool smoke with its dimple technology. The dimple technology has many application, ranging from military supersonic jets to food storage, to gaming computers – it’s actually one of the best feature on the Genius Pipe. The technology pulls up smoke via hundreds of special indents, which clean up the smoke that you inhale and filters any unwanted resin or tar. For a combustion system, this is nothing short of revolutionary.
The waterless filtration system on the Genius Pipe is by far the cleanest you can find on the market today. It has a simple 3-piece design and a magnetic hold that makes it easy to clean and maintain. You only need to pull the 2 pieces apart gently, and then wipe them down using a cloth and some cleaning solution. This will let you enjoy more clean hits.
Best Cheap Vaporizer
Based on: Vapor Quality, User Experience, and Price
The Black Mamba Vaporizer – £36.99
On our site, the Black Mamba Vaporizer currently has a rating of 4.5 stars from 233 review, which is not surprising. People just love it! The Black Mamba is a conduction dry herb vaporizer that is well known for it even and precise heating. Its unique design and shape gives it space for a large ceramic chamber that can hold up to 0.65g of your dry herb.
The Black Mamba also comes with an all-glass vapor path, food-grade glass mouthpiece that should keep you safe and healthy, as well as 5 pre-set temperatures with a 20-second heating time. The pre-set temperatures are 425F (220°C), 410F (210°C), 400°F (200°C), 375°F (190°C), and 356°F (180°C).
Since this kick ass device is a herbal vaporizer with an impressive conduction system, it’s better to have your favorite dry herbs well ground for the best vaporizing experience. The exterior of this baby is coated with a soft-touch rubber material with a temperature gauge and a single button with LED lights on the sides. The non-removable battery in this device will last up to 2 hours after a full charge, and takes up to 2 hours to fill up. As such, it’s not the best choice when it comes to battery life – definitely not the worst either.
Best New Vaporizer
Based on: Weight, Size, Discreetness, and Concealment
The Davinci brand is already well-known within the vaporizer industry, mainly for their flagship product: the IQ. The company has become incredibly popular mainly due to the quality of their products, and now, they have introduced another fine offering. This time it’s aimed at people who prefer slightly smaller but more portable vaporizer with the same kind of quality we’ve come to expect from Davinci.
The MIQRO is the new product on the Davinci line, and is 33% smaller than its predecessor – the IQ. Davinci have always emphasized on quality, and with the MIQRO, the quality of the vaporized material is second to none. For instance, the mouthpiece and the internal vapor path are all made from zirconium ceramic, which produces pure, untainted vapor, giving you the best vapor experience than anything on the market.
Just as with other Davinci products, the MIQRO comes with an elegant and beautiful design. They don’t hold back on functionality either. The device has a handheld design that’s small and convenient to use, and you can bring it with you everywhere. There’s also a removable battery to enhance the portability experience, and something of an innovation in today’s vaporizer market. The ability to bring an extra battery with you is quite a handy feature, especially if you’re planning on going camping or to a festival; or basically anywhere where a power outlet is not readily available.
The Davinci MIQRO is constructed with anodized aluminum on its outer shell, which is robust and feels durable. The buttons on the device light up so that you can see what you’re doing even under low light conditions. There are also magnetic hinged doors that give you access to the interior of the vaporizer, but these stay fully sealed when you’re vaping. The temperature range for this baby starts at 300°F and goes through to 430°F.
The smart path technology is quite innovative and truly a breakthrough, considering it allows the user to choose between four different channels or paths for the vapor to travel, standby mode, and boost mode. Each of these channels or paths has its own temperature range, which increase by 20°F.
The range of temperature is outlined below:
- Smart Path 1: 350°F to 370°F
- Smart Path 2: 370°F to 390°F
- Smart Path 3: 390°F to 410°F
- Smart Path 4: 410°F to 430°F
In addition, there’s a boost mode that essentially increases the temperature in the chamber until it reaches the maximum capacity and then holds onto this level as long as the boost button is pressed. This allows for more versatility and provides an extra boost when you need it. And at the price point, the design, and the kind of features you get, the Davinci MIQRO is the best new vaporizer on the market for 2019.
