Check out the top selling portable vaporizer brand PAX Labs. The PAX 3 is the new and improved compact portable vaporizer for both dry herbs and wax extracts.
The portable vaporizer is a small, handy device that is changing lifestyles. Many smokers have dropped the traditional flame in favor of the vape. There are many great portable vaporizers to choose from – here we take a look at two of the most popular brands – PAX and DaVinci.
Naturally, portable vaporizer users would want the ultimate vaping experience as well as value for money. Hence, the logical choices would be the premium models – DaVinci Miqro and Pax 3 – from among the many available in the market.
Currently, the competition between the two iconic brands just intensified. Both are engaged in an intense battle to win the hearts of portable vaporizer users. Their respective lead products boast of excellent features and functionality that perhaps only a thin line separates them.
To begin the comparison, the Miqro 3 is the newest entry to the market where the Pax 3 is presently lording over. Thus, the Miqro 3 is the challenger to the throne held by what users claim as the best if not the smartest of the lot.
The diminutive Pax 3 is the acknowledged titan of the industry. The design of the anodized aluminum, four-inch-tall vaporizer is ergonomic. It carries a simple yet intuitive interface.
Assembly is effortless as the lids and mouthpieces are magnetically attached. There’s a lip-sense technology to make vaping simple.
Miqro 3 is smaller in size but actually the petite version of its highly-popular predecessor, the DaVinci IQ. This is by far the extremely portable vape. The 15 grid LED display embedded in the handsome, elegant design is a marvel to the eyes. For portable vaporizer users, Miqro 3 is very easy to use.
In terms of substance compatibility, the Pax 3 is compatible with wax concentrates and dry herb. The Miqro is well-suited for dry herb only.
Conduction is the heating system of both. But in so far as oven size is concerned, the Pax 3 can take in up to 0.3 grams of herb. The smaller Miqro has a smaller oven but features a zirconium pearl. While the oven is relatively small to hold enough herb, it is ideal for solo sessions.
The Pax 3 earned its lofty position in the market because of its extensive features. Users will gain complete and full control of the vaporizer with its Smartphone App.
That is an outstanding feature if you want a more customized vaping experience, especially when using the dynamic modes. The size of Pax 3’s oven can also be adjusted as there are three different oven lids to choose from.
On the other hand, the Miqro is unbeatable if you want a device with absolute portability. Aside from this standout feature, the pocket-sized vaporizer has the DaVinci IQ’s Smart Path mode. The temperature increases gradually as you vape.
You will also notice the pearl on the inside of the Miqro’s chamber cover. It allows the user to adjust the oven size while providing an even distribution of heat. In addition, portable vaporizer users have several customization options with the integrated precision temperature control.
Undeniably, both vaporizers have unique features. However, the Miqro’s Smart Path can operate without the smartphone app. and its oven size adjuster is also built in. With the Pax 3, the smartphone app. is required in order to go into the advanced customization.
The Pax 3 battery is non-replaceable but chargeable. It can last for 90 minutes with charging time of about 2 hours.
The Miqro battery is replaceable and chargeable but the duration time is shorter (20-30 minutes).
The Pax 3 has proven that is one of the most reliable and top-of-mind vapes. There are no adverse feedbacks as to dependability. The brand reputation remains solid. The product warranty is 10 years.
Even if the Miqro is comparatively new, DaVinci vaporizers are known to durable and made to last. Users can expect this device to perform in a similar fashion after years of use. The product warranty is 5 years
Given the tale of the tape, it’s a head-to-head battle between the legend and the upstart. With no clear, runaway advantage, the decision might rest on three things: price, size, and brand preference.
The Pax 3 retails for $249.99 and if you purchase directly from PAX Vapor, you get the full 10-year warranty. The Miqro 3, which is the ultra-portable version of the classic DaVinci IQ, sells for $199.00 directly from DaVinci.
Both products are terrific choices. No vape comes close to the premium features of either device. You’re making a wise decision if you invest in the Pax 3 or the Miqro. But the best part is that you get to own the best the vaping space has ever produced. And that’s a fact.
Canadian vaporizer manufacturer Arizer has recently brought to market a new portable vaporizer called the Argo or Arizer ‘Go‘. Arizer is known for manufacturing high quality devices that have strong long lasting batteries. The first vaporizer from Arizer was a desktop model that is required to be plugged in to a power source. The V Tower is a budget friendly desktop device that performs at the same level as more expensive brands.
Arizer followed up the success of there first vaporizer with the Extreme Q, Solo 1, Solo 2, and Arizer Air. Focusing on performance and quality while maintaining budget friendly devices has helped Arizer become one of the most popular vaporizer companies in the world. Here we will take a closer look at the Arizer Argo vaporizer.
The Argo is considered an easy to use inhalation device. To turn the Argo on you will need to press and hold both the M and the + button for several seconds while the unit turns on. You will hear a beep that signals the vaporizer has turned on. To cycle through the various temperature options you can use the + and – buttons. You can select a temperature to one degree of precision up to 220 degrees celsius.
To load the Arizer Argo, you can push down the mouthpiece shield which protects the glass mouthpiece tube. This motion will allow the glass mouthpiece to be exposed and you can remove it to fill it with herbs. The glass mouthpiece’s double as the oven loading chamber. You can twist the bottom of the glass tube into ground up herb to fill it. Once this is done you place the tube back into position. Now you are ready to vape.
The Argo is an interesting unit. One may think that a portable vaporizer is suppose to be a quick hitter that you can quickly use on demand. The Argo is a bit more of a time consuming portable vaporizer as it takes a while to finish an oven load. Initially it takes a bit of time to get a first good draw, and due to the convection nature of how your herbs are stored in the vaporizer it takes a bit longer to fully vape the contents. The flavor is pretty good with the Argo as it is heated evenly gradually.
Comparing the Arizer Air 2 and the Arizer Argo the batteries are similar. However, due to the Argo taking longer for a single session you will not be able to get as many sessions out of the Argo as the Air. The Argo is more compact and has more features than the Air. For the first model of the Argo it does pretty good with this battery.
If you have a friend who is also interested in getting the Arizer Argo you can both save buy buying at the same time. Some of the best deals and special offers are available from Vape-Smart, you can view the Arizer Argo on Vape-Smart here.
The Arizer Go is definitely the most portable and most discreet Arizer unit to date and will definitely find a home with people who prefer longer sessions that are full of flavor. However, the Arizer Solo 2 still remains the most powerful of the Arizer line.

The cannabis industry continues to move forward at a relentless pace amidst all the backlash from strict government regulations around the world. The people have spoken and when there is a movement as powerful as the one behind the cannabis industry there is not much hope in stopping it. Companies like Quest, are bringing to market new and innovative ideas that make us rethink what cannabis consumption is all about. The Aero Inhaler Vaporizer seen here is a prime example of new ways to consume medical and recreational marijuana.
The Quest AeroInhaler is a new device that allows you to inhale puffs of approximately 10 mg of THC every time. Each cartridge gives you 100 puffs and can be picked up at many of the top dispensaries. The puffs send THC distillate directly into your lungs with no heat applied. This means there is no combustion which greatly reduces any irritating or burning of the throat.
The AeroInhaler is the most simple cannabis delivery system on the market. You just place the actuator between your lips and press down. The Aersol delivers an excellent blend of herbal terpy flavor.
A major concern with regular dab hits and dry herb hits using both the traditional flame and regular vaporizers is the whole guessing game behind the potency of each hit. With the Quest AeroInhaler, you are more in control of each session as it delivers the same dose with each puff.
Quest distillate delivers pure THC that helps to eliminate the buzzy head high of a Sativa and the couch burdening low of an Indica. A measured, and metered dose allows you to get the desired effect you are after and not over do yourself by accident. The Quest distillate is created with added live resin which delivers great tasting terpins.
One of the big problems plaguing pretty much every other type of cannabis consumption method besides edibles is the smell. The distinct potency of cannabis although quite delightful to some, is a red flag and dead give a way to others.
The Quest AeroInhaler is unique in that it has no odor that people around you can detect. This unit is truly one of the most discreet cannabis consumption methods that exists.
Quest AeroInhaler is made with pharmaceutical-grade components. It is recommended to clean the actuator valve that dispenses the doseage on a frequent basis. Keeping the actuator clean will ensure that you are receiving the proper dosage level of each puff.
KandyPens last ever vaporizer is finally here! Jk'ing, they'll probably have 10 more out by the end of the week ;). The new KandyPens RUBI has taken a page from the PAX Labs JUUL playbook. Resembling the PAX Era the KandyPens RUBI is a liquid oil refillable pod based system. In this article we will explain what exactly this means and also touch on the build quality and performance of this new KandyPens entry.
Ask and you shal receive! The KandyPens Rubi is similar in looks to the popular PAX Era pod vaporizer. The RUBI is however more versatile and has a specific feature that most will be happy to hear about. The KandyPens take on a refillable thin liquid vape pen uses an 'open based system' opposed to a locked in pod system. By this I mean to say that with the RUBI you are able to easily fill the pods with your own e-juice and own CBD or THC liquids.
I think one of the reasons why some of the other pod systems were built as enclosed systems was the fact that they did not have a good way to allow an open based system while keeping it leak proof. KandyPens has created a very simple 'door' or 'slot' that you just press into place and remove easily to solve this issue. I'm sure another reason for the enclosed system of other devices is to keep you ordering their pods as a money grab, but you don't have to worry about that with the RUBI.
A ceramic coil is the heating element that is surrounded by a Japanese cotton around the coil with a stainless tube inside. The coil itself is 1.6 Ohm with a 8.5 watt battery giving 3.7 volts.
Weighing just half an ounce the RUBI is one of the lightest vape pens you can find. The thin design makes it extremely pocket friendly and portable. This to me is one of the most portable wax pens available. The battery is pretty small and will not last as long as most of the big pens will. On a single charge you will get around 30 to 50 rips on average. The battery does however charge very quickly at about 30 minutes.
The KandyPens RUBI can be purchased for under $50. This is a solid deal in my opinion as the product is well built and produces descent vapor. You can use it with both THC/CBD liquids and flavored vape juices. The low price point, small size, sleek look makes it a winner in my books.

A cannabis inhalation device is one of the most health conscious ways to consume cannabis for medicinal reasons. A portable cannabis vaporizer removes the need for a torch, lighter, or other heat source that uses open flame. A flame to material such as loose leaf creates tar and carcinogens that are harmful to the human body. A vaporizer is a device that heats material through either convection or conduction heating. These vaporization methods heat cannabis at a temperature that lower then the temperature required to combust (set on fire) your medicine.
A portable cannabis vaporizer has many benefits over a desktop vaporizer. A portable cannabis vaporizer can be used on the go and does not need to be plugged in to a power source. Portable cannabis vaporizers are small enough to fit in your handbag or even pocket. The portable medical cannabis vaporizers of today are advanced enough to be safe to use with automatic shut off times and in some cases micro dosing capabilities.
Ergonomic, affordable, convection, cooling vapor path - all things sure to make the Pulsar Flow vaporizer a popular device. The Pulsar Flow is an affordable high quality portable dry herb convection vaporizer. Available in multiple color options with a few unique features under the hood we expect this will be a stong mid price range contender. Although we have not had the chance to test this unit yet we will let you know about its details and features.
Buy the Pulsar Flow Here
Intended to be one of Pulsars next big sellers the Flow has been built with quality in mind. The herb chamber is lined with quartz to help deliver strong tasting vapor while the housing is made of durable materials.
An internal 1600 mAh battery powers the Flow. The 1600 mAh battery is better than your average mid range device's power supply. Considering the Flow comes in at around the $100 mark a 1600 mAh battery is pretty impressive.
Located on the top of the Pulsar Flow vaporizer is a long magnetic oven lid that doubles as the vapor filter and cooling path. This lid is made of a durable metal. Overall the build quality and components used make the price seem very reasonable.
Convection units require a stronger battery to be effective. The Flow is powered by a 1600 mAh battery as we mentioned above and it looks like it is a sufficient power source to do the job well. A modest 40 second heat time is needed to allow the convection heating method to do its job before you can achieve a good pull. Convection heating is the most efficient way to vaporizer dry herbs and helps to deliver better tasting not burnt vapor. View more convection vaporizers here.
Taking a page out of the playbook of popular vaporizer brand 'Firefly' is the long groove like vapor path. As the vapor leaves the heating chamber and heads towards your mouth it is forced to flow in and out of the embossed cooling filter pattern. Honestly, the Flow looks like a less sophisticated version of the popular Firefly 2 vaporizer (seen here).
The long vapor path assuming it works on par with the Firefly 2 will require a quick wipe down after several uses. If the vapor path works even only half as good as the Firefly 2 it will remove a good amount of unwanted vapor particles from entering your body.
Temperature for the Flow ranges from 356 to 428 with haptic feedback. The one button design makes switching between the temperatures simple and leaves less room for wear and tear on the unit.
We already commented on the fact that the Pulsar Flow uses an impressive 1600 mAh battery. We expect that this will get you between 10 to 20 sessions. We will again need to confirm this once we have seen this device in action. The small compact nature of the Flow makes it one of the smaller convection vaporizers available. The rounded shape could be comfy or awkward depending on which way you have it positioned in your pocket.
Available in a few variations you can get the Flow in all black, silver and black, carbon fiber, and also with a hint of nature with wood grain and silver.
The shape of the unit is similar to that of the Loto Lux which is another high end vaporizer that has recently been released. This teardrop design is comfortable to hold in the hand. The mouthpiece is ergonomic and feels natural to draw from. So we're told. The overall design and functionality of the Pulsar Flow is simplewith just one button. There is a row of five LED lights to indicate temperature settings located on the one side.
We suggest you purchase the Flow from Vape-Smart here. If you and a friend both make your purchase at the same time you will receive an additional 10% savings.
Who says the vaping industry isn't fashionable? The new XLux Vixen wax pen is a discrete vaporizer that resembles a stick of makeup. XVape (XMax) has been manufacturing portable vaping devices for a long time and it looking to capitalize on the growing female consumer base for wax concentrates.
Vixen is a discrete portable wax vape pen that comes with a smell proof cap, magnetic mouthpiece, and leak proof design. If you have been on the lookout for a inconspicuous portable vaporizer pen, this could be your answer. Designed for those who like make-up the XLux Vixen comes in both black and pink casings.
The XLux Vixen is more powerful than I would have originally thought. After looking more closely at the Vixen wax pen I was pretty impressed. Powered by a 900 mAh battery, built with a smell proof cap and magnetic mouthpiece, USB charging, a leak proof design, and coming with 2 heating elements the Vixen is a solid little package. A dual quartz titanium coil and ceramic plate coil are included to give you the vaping experience more preferable to your liking.
Xlux Vixen has 3 pre set temperatures that you can vape your waxes with. Low temperature is set to 400C (753F), medium at 500C (932F), and high at 600C (1112F). This is a pretty wide range and high temperature output for such a small unit. The three options should be enough to deliver stronger flavor on low and larger hits on high.
Everything you need to start vaping wax concentrates is included (minus the wax). Included in the package with the XLux Vixen is a packing tool, USB cable, user manual, 2 heating elements, wax holding container, and the vaporizer itself.
XVape is more than just a discrete fashion vape pen manufacturer. Sure they also have the XVape Muse (view here) which is a vape pen that can also be used as a writing utensil. But they also have other high quality performance vaporizers. One of the newest editions to the XVape line is the XVape Fog. The Fog is a hybrid conduction + convection vaporizer that delivers superior vapor quality. Whether you are looking for a dry herb vaporizer, a wax vaporizer, an ultra portable pen or anything in between XVape has a solution that may work for you.

Who doesn't like holding a flask! The Utillian 651 is a flask shaped dry herb vaporizer that packs a punch. An upgrade from the popular Utillian 651, elder sibling to the Utillian 420, and more compact than the Utillian 721 the 651 is a promising mid sized performance vaporizer. Today we will take a closer look at the overall build quality, vapor performance, battery life, pro's and con's, and our overall thoughts on if this product is a good buy. Continue reading below to learn more from our Utillian 651 vaporizer review.

Housed with an anodized aluminum shell the Utillian 651 is a durable device. The glass mouthpiece is protected by a flask style protection lid. This device does not have very many parts which means there is not much that can go wrong with it. The Utillian 651 is in the vaporizers under $150 category and outperforms most mid priced range devices on the market. The oven uses a ceramic heating chamber to heat your herbs. Overall the build quality of the Utillian 651 is above industry average.
You should never purchase a vaporizer that does not come with a warranty. A warranty means that the company stands behind the quality of their devices. Utillian offers a 1 year hassle free warranty.
Powered by 3 pre set heating temperatures the Utillian 651 vaporizer does not offer a very wide range in heating options. Luckily the 3 default settings are chosen well and switching between them should deliver enjoyable results. The lowest temperature is set at 196C, the medium to 204C and the highest at 212C.
As the vapor is heated in the ceramic heating chamber which uses conduction heating it travels upwards into the glass mouthpiece to deliver a pure smooth hit. The lower two temperatures deliver stronger taste while the hottest produces the most visible vapor.
Battery power is where the Utillian 651 packs its punch. With up to 3 hours of usage time this is one of the longest lasting portable vaporizers in the under $200 price range.
Shaped like a flask this unit may be considered discrete in terms of looking like a vaporizer, but it raises alarm in its disguise. If someone is intrigued by the flask or perhaps you are in a no drinking area then closer inspection would reveal your little secret. For this reason I would say that this is not a discrete vaporizer and is more of a novelty device.
On a comfort-ability scale I would say that this is a nice vape to carry around and also to hold while using. Similar to a flask it is curved to fit nicely in your pocket. When you are using the Utillian 651 it feels like you are taking a sip from a flask.
Here are a few points that make the Utillian 651 a vaporizer worth considering:
No portable vaporizer is perfect. Here are a few reasons why you may not like the Utillian 651 vaporizer:
For the low price point and the extra long lasting battery I think this device is a good deal. Utillian is known for making strong performing devices that are made with high quality components. The 3 temperature settings do not offer a wide range of heat settings but the 3 that have been chosen work well. The appearance of the Utillian 651 is my favorite aspect of this device as it speaks class to me. Failling somewhere in between the Utillian 420 and the Utillian 721 the 651 has its niche.
