Top 10 Portable Dry Herb Vaporizers for 2019
Mighty has now been around for close to four years but it remains at the top of the list of the best portable dry herb vaporizers. The vapor quality produced by this vapor pen is as good as that produced by desktop vaporizers and that makes it exceptionally good. It provides smooth and flavorful pulls which is a key quality in an excellent portable herbal vaporizer.
In addition to the good quality vapor, Mighty is an easy weed vape to use. The units come with a screen that enables one to control the temperature as they please. It also comes with a safety feature that turns the vaporizer off automatically if you forget to turn it off.
This weed vape pen makes use of a combination of both convection and conduction heating techniques, which Storz and Bickel patented. It also includes grating, located on each side of the vape, that protects you from potential burns on your hands.
The battery life on the Mighty is top tier and in 2018, the battery life was upgraded by a further 20%. It can be used for close to two hours straight without recharging, which makes it a great option for a weekend out and about. It can also be used while it is plugged in to its charging unit which makes it convenient to use when one is indoors.
The Mighty is not as portable or small as other vaporizers on the market but its size is enough for you to move around with it and it’s a great use at your home. It can be quite pricey but it is a worthy investment.
Arizer Solo 2
Designed as a follow up to the highly popular Solo, the Arizer Solo 2 is undoubtedly one of the best vaporizers out there. The company that makes it, Arizer, is popular for its exceptional vaporizers that are fairly priced.
The biggest selling point of the Arizer Solo 2 is its unmatched battery life. The Solo 2 can run for approximately 3 hours without the need of recharging. It is undoubtedly the longest running battery life compared to any vaporizer in 2019.
Besides the exceptional battery life, the Arizer Solo 2 also produces high quality vapor. It makes use of a stainless steel and ceramic heating system that creates thick and good tasting vapor. The air path in this weed pen is made of glass, and its length ensures that the vapor is kept cool.
The heating time of this weed vaporizer is about 20 seconds, meaning it takes only a little time to have your dry herb vaporized into consumable vapor. It comes with easy to use digital controls that also gives it a sleek look and finish.
The only drawback with the Arizer Solo 2 is that because of the glass tube, which cannot be carried or quite big for your pockets. Its other qualities compensate for that though, and it is fairly priced, which makes it a good option if the Mighty is out of your price range.
Though not included in the list, Arizer Air 2 needs to be mentioned. Basically, it’s similar to Arizer Solo 2, but has smaller size and shorter battery life compared to Arizer Solo 2.
A new kid on the block, the Ghost MV 1 is definitely a strong competitor among the best vaporizer for weed on the market. Although the initial version of it had some problems, these problems have been fixed and the Ghost MV1 has become best herbal vaporizer for some people who buy a vaporizer.
The Ghost MV1 is different from the other top vaporizers in the sense that it is the best pen vaporizer as opposed to the Mighty and Solo 2, which are classified as session vaporizers. Being a well-known vaporizer, it boasts of a feature that instantly heats up and hence, users can get their dose immediately. Session vaporizers require a bit more time to heat up the bowl. This makes the MV1 great for short smoke sessions and small doses.
Great quality vapor is a major selling point of the Ghost MV1. Making use of convection heating, it produces top notch vapor and our first few pulls from this vaporizers are best flavors yet compared to other vaporizers that we have ever tried. Furthermore, it can be used to consume concentrates for those who prefer them.
A few users have complained regarding the difficulty they experienced in using the crucibles on the device. It can take a bit of time to get familiar with the crucibles but it’s fairly easy to familiarize their usage. We do not recommend this to elderly people, especially to someone who is not adept. Overall, Ghost MV1 is a great pen vape as we totally enjoyed using it.

These two products from Boundless are on the cheap end of the spectrum and therefore, they are good options for those who cannot afford the likes of Volcano’s Mighty and Crafty. Boundless CF/CFX make use of hybrid convection heating and are similar in size and looks to the Mighty and Crafty.
