What does the future have in store for portable vaporizers?
The portable vape industry is an ever changing scene. New portable vaporizer companies pop up over night and most vanish as quickly as they entered the market. We can predict based on a recurring history which portable vaporizer makers will stay in the game and build upon their current success. Companies/devices like PAX, DaVinci, Fire Fly, Crafty, AtmosRX, Dr Dabber, Grenco Science, V2, and DipStick Vapes are all industry leaders that have built upon past models. It is interesting to watch each company grow and develop new innovative features in their own niches within the portable vaporizer market. We expect to see the PAX 4, Fire Fly 3, New DaVinci model and many more portable vaporizers in the near future come to market. Most companies keep there new products under wraps until close to launch date. If you wish to be among the first to catch a glimpse of these new devices, subscribe to our e-newsletter.

They have created a solid image around their products and offer great customer service that is backed by well made and long lasting devices. Stay tuned for any updates made to this page and new and exciting portable vaporizers that may soon come to market.
Conduction and Convection - How They Factor In
Many people are paying more attention to how portable vaporizer operate and how they can be improved to help do what they do best - create a healthier means to intake cannabis and other vaping materials. The best vape pen 2017 is currently a conduction vaporizer. Conduction vaporizers are able to be built easier and much smaller than convection vaporizers. This is because a conduction vaporizer is where the oven is heated directly and the material being vaped sits in/on the heating element. In the future with advancements in technology perhaps convection vapes will become the more sought after mini portable vaping device. Convection is where the heating element is lower than the oven that hods the material being vaped and is blown up into it. The main benefits of a convection vaporizer is that your material is vaped more evenly and you do not have to stir (at least not as frequently). The Haze Dual V3 vape that we touched on above is a convection vaporizer (and a conduction vaporizer) so this company is definitely one to watch. Their device is a little bit large right now, especially compared to the PAX. But down the road I'm sure Haze will come out with models that only have one oven, are more compact, and keep the convection aspect.
As seen in the image above, the Haze Dual V3 comes in an array of colors and looks fairly large for a portable vape. But it is portable and has tons of features.
Another convection vape that has been introduced to market that is in the low to mid price range is the Atmos Aegis portable vaporizer. The Aegis is a convection vape designed for dry herbs only. If you are looking for a low cost convection vape to see what all the fuss is about this might be a good starting point. Seen below is the Aegis convection vaporizer. The aegis is not a contender for best vape pen 2017, but due to the nature and industry keeping their eyes out for convection vapes we thought we would share this one with you.
