Best Portable Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer

These are the top picks for overall portability and performance. Fellow bakers, rest assured that we have not only taken our own staff reviews into consideration but also from feedback from customers worldwide.

WINNER : Storz & Bickel Venty

Storz & Bickel's latest portable vaporizer offering - the Venty - wowed us into becoming our top pick for Best Portable vaporizer in 2024. Building upon Storz & Bickel's renowned reputation for reliable performance marked by consistency and excellence, the Venty pushes the envelope with larger and more impressive hits. With Storz & Bickel's patented hybrid heating system, the Venty delivers unparalleled vapor quality, while dual-level cooling chambers ensure a smooth, comfortable experience. 

Its customisable airflow system empowers you to create unique vapor experiences, while its 20 second heat-up time and generous battery life ensure you're always ready to indulge in pure, flavourful vapor. Whether you prefer tight, slow draws for a meditative session or open it up for voluminous clouds, the Venty seamlessly adapts to your vaping style. The Venty's intuitive controls and lack of complex techniques make it accessible to both seasoned vapers and newcomers alike. Simply pack your herb, turn it on, and enjoy the ride. 

While it may not be the most pocket-friendly vaporizer, its comprehensive set of features and long-lasting battery cements the Venty as the ultimate choice. You can confidently invest in this vaporizer, and if you’re ordering from outside of Malaysia, Pocket Ovens offers customs clearance insurance to guarantee your order arrives smoothly.

Honourable Mention : PAX Plus

While the Venty may not win any awards for being pocketable, the PAX Plus steps in to shine. Popular for its compact, classy design and striking finish, the PAX Plus can hold its own when it comes to power. 

The PAX Plus delivers steady, punchy vapor while being discreet and pocketable. Read our comparison of the PAX Plus and PAX Mini to see why this device is one of our top-picks.

Best Dual Use Aromatherapy Vaporizer

If you’re one to switch up your aromatherapy sessions between dry herbs and concentrates, there’s not many devices that do both equally well. We carefully picked aromatherapy vaporizers that can perform best in both worlds.

WINNER : Storz & Bickel Mighty+ and Crafty+

These two connoisseur vaporizers never fail to wow us with their outstanding vapor output for dry herb vaporization. The Mighty+ and Crafty+ are designed to also work well with concentrates using the Storz & Bickel stainless-steel mesh concentrate pad. A lot of users even love using both dry herbs and concentrates together in the Storz & Bickel Dosing Capsule

Plus, the added convenience of carrying multiple pre-loaded Dosing Capsules broadens the opportunities for your vaporization sessions. It turns the Mighty+ and Crafty+ into a travel friendly, versatile vaporizer. 

Between the two, the Mighty+ heats up faster, has precise temperature controls and has a longer runtime than the Crafty+. However the Crafty+ is more pocketable and is cheaper.

Honourable Mention : Firefly 2+

Any dual use category must mention the dynamic convection vaporizer, Firefly 2+. We think it is fantastic for equally tasty dry herb and concentrate vaporization. 

You can set your heat between 93°C and 260°C (200°F and 500°F), the widest range available in any portable vaporizer! Heating up only takes 3 seconds, delivering fast and flavourful vapor. The Firefly 2+ improves on its predecessor with 33% more airflow. It is also simple to load up and go with an included concentrate pad that works straight out of the box. 

Best Desktop Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer

Desktop vaporizers tend to cost a bit more than their portable counterparts. However, desktop vaporizers are the best choice for first class vapor quality. To make your investment worth it, we focused on the best ones for your home use.

WINNER : Storz & Bickel Volcano Hybrid

It’s no surprise that the Storz & Bickel Volcano Hybrid is the titleholder in this category. Even decades after the introduction of the first Volcano desktop vaporizer, dry herb aromatherapy users still sing its praises. 

The legendary Volcano Hybrid oozes out vapor into a balloon bag or through a whip with a flat mouthpiece. It uses a hybrid of convection and conduction heating method to create clean, thick, and consistent vapor.  The magic of this device is that it just works! 

There’s an easy learning curve, Bluetooth app compatibility, precise temperature control and it’s easy to clean. The bag or whip systems makes the Volcano Hybrid amazing to use whether solo or in a group. 

For those of you who want the best, Storz & Bickel ensured each material and every component was designed to meet medical specifications. If you don’t want to skimp on a desktop vaporizer, this is the one you should get for the long haul.

Honourable Mention : Arizer XQ2

Often lauded as the budget version of the Volcano Hybrid, the Arizer XQ2 is a desktop vaporizer for fun features and versatility. Offering vapor through the balloon bag or hookah-style whip attachment, it’s great for those who are just dipping their toes into the desktop vaporizer segment. 

The full convection heating device uses a ceramic heater and all-glass parts that bring out the best aromatherapy flavours in your herbs. And did we mention that there’s a lifetime warranty on the ceramic heater? Users also get full digital temperature control, amusing light shows, on-board and remote controls to customise sessions.

Best Discreet Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer

When you want to enjoy your aromatherapy herbs without getting looks or questions, you need something compact, light, quick to heat up, and an oven you don’t need to reload often. We picked the best vaporizers for incognito mode.


The PAX Plus offers maximum efficiency in a minimalist body. It’s small enough to fit in one hand and effortlessly operate while in your pocket or bag. One push of the button, wait for the vibration signal, and sip! 

The PAX Plus also features a pre-set ‘Stealth Mode’ temperature setting which dims the lights and reduces visible vapor. You’re able to sneak in a quick hit or even a full session with the unobtrusive and intelligent mode. The size doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice on dosage, it can pack roughly 0.35g in its oven compared to 0.2g-0.3g capacity of other popular devices. Even better, you can pre-fill multiple so you can easily swap out a used capsule for a fresh one. 

Want a smaller dosage while out and about? PAX Plus got you covered with the Half-Pack Lid, which allows for a tightly packed oven even with less material in there. Look no further than the PAX Plus if you want to fly under the radar. 

Speaking of discreet, if you order from Pocket Ovens, rest assured that the package that comes to your mailbox will also be just as unassuming. As the cherry on top, PAX Plus comes with a 10-year-warranty so you know you can have long-term peace of mind. 

Honourable Mention : Fenix Mini

If you’re open to testing out up and coming brands, the Fenix Mini is a great stealthy aromatherapy vaporizer. Subtly vaporize with the Fenix Mini as it's small enough to conceal in your palm for a quick hit without raising any eyebrows. 

To be precise, it’s 8cm tall and 5cm wide. The Fenix Mini has a quick heat up time of 20 seconds and can be used with both dry herbs and concentrates, producing flavourful vapor using convection heating.

Best Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer for Battery Life

Charging batteries frequently can get really inconvenient especially when you’re just about to unwind with a dry herb aromatherapy session. That’s why many users pay attention to battery life as one of the top priorities when buying a dry herb aromatherapy vaporizer. Here is our pick for sessions that will outlast you.

WINNER : Arizer Solo 2

The Arizer Solo 2 can last an impressive 3 hours on a full charge! This is unparalleled in the portable dry herb vaporizer world. Being the second iteration of the original Solo model, this device improved many key features while maintaining all the good ones. 

The Arizer Solo 2 has 50% better battery life while being smaller than the original, heats up 4 times faster, has better airflow and has complete on-board session controls. This cleverly engineered device optimises battery output to extend the minutes you can get out of the 3,400mAh battery. While a full charge takes about 150 minutes, the pass-through charging feature lets you use it while charging which really comes in handy. 

The Arizer Solo 2 doesn’t sacrifice flavour and vapor production, using all-glass stems, ceramic and stainless-steel heating. A lifetime warranty on the heating element is included with the Arizer Solo 2 in addition to an industry-leading 1-year warranty on the battery and a 2-year warranty covering workmanship and defects.

Honourable Mention : Storz & Bickel Mighty+

The Mighty+ vaporizer from Storz & Bickel comes with a Super Charger add on cable and adapter that pumps the battery from 0% to 80% in just 40 minutes, and 100% in under an hour. Without the accessory, the device fully charges via USB-C in about 90 minutes. 

A full charge will last approximately 6 to 8 full sessions, about 60 – 90 minutes. That’s more than enough to last throughout a fun-filled day out. With the ability to produce chunkier vapor than the Arizer Solo 2, the choice boils down to preferences.

Best Budget Friendly Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer

If you’re on a tight budget or new to dry herb vaporizing, you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot to get started. Many options are available in this category but for the best features and premium materials, we’ve narrowed it down for you.

The three-button set up makes it straightforward to use whether you’re a beginner or seasoned user. The Fenix Mini packages convenience and cost-effectiveness in one compact vaporizer, a great pick without breaking the bank.

Honourable Mention : Dynavap M Plus

If the Fenix Mini is too plain for you, then let’s sweeten this category with a one-of-a-kind offering, the Dynavap M Plus. This device has a cult following because it works so well, uses very little material and doesn’t require batteries or electricity to operate. For users who prefer a tactile, analogue experience, the Dynavap offers the opportunity to tinker, mod and customise your sessions.

Best Mid-Priced Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer

For those saving up for a better device, there are many best-sellers that fall nicely within a comfortable price. We selected these winners based on the best quality and functionality you can get.

WINNER : XMax V3 Pro Titanium Glass

The XMax V3 Pro Titanium Glass is an upgrade to the popular XMax V3 Pro aromatherapy vaporizer. It replaces the stainless-steel oven with a premium titanium oven that boasts convection heating, something usually reserved for higher value vaporizers. 

This cool collaboration between FlowRolls and XMAX replaces the standard heat-resistant plastic mouthpiece in the XMAX V3 Pro with a glass mouthpiece to deliver superior vapor. 

Out of the box, there’s an accessory that adapts the XMax V3 Pro Titanium Glass for botanical aromatherapy dry herbs or concentrates. This device heats up to 180°C in a mere 10 seconds, and you can also get dual mode operation to suit your vaporising style. 

With features like full digital temperature control and a detachable battery the XMax V3 Pro Titanium Glass delivers serious value. It is so efficient that the only time your herbs are cooked by this vaporizer is when you are inhaling.

Honourable Mention : PAX Mini and DaVinci Miqro-C

PAX Mini

Prefer simpler operations and less tinkering? The PAX Mini offers the top technology and sleek looks of PAX Labs’ vaporizers without blowing your budget. With a one-press operation and an impressive heating algorithm, it’s a portable and reliable vaporizer perfect as a 2nd device or for light users.

Davinci Miqro-C

For the littlest size without compromising on quality, we recommend the Davinci Miqro-C. It has an adjustable oven, four pre-programmed Smart Paths, and a compact, concealable form factor. This nifty device is just under 8cm and weighing 87 grams. The Davinci Miqro-C dry herb vaporizer produces tasty, thick vapor.

The easy-to-use vaporizers we have selected below allow you familiarise with dry herb vaporizers’ operations and maintenance while learning about your own preferences as you go along. In our humble opinion, these options are the best as a first step into the dry herb aromatherapy world.

Best Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer for Microdosing

Sometimes all you want to do is vape a little instead of going all out. There are two ways to microdose, load less and vape less or with some devices you can pack a full load and take a smaller hit, saving the rest for later. These devices will give you the subtle benefits you want from microdosing.

WINNER : Dynavap M Plus

The DynaVap M Plus comes with an “adjust-a-bowl” feature that adjusts the chamber down as small as 0.05 grams. The DynaVap M Plus aromatherapy vaporizer heats the dry herbs at a lower temperature producing consistent and flavourful vapor. 

The device fully extracts the material in one heat cycle, leaving no wastage. With the addition of the DynaCoil accessory, you can also vape concentrates making it a dual-use vaporizer.

Honourable Mention : Firefly 2+

The Firefly 2+ is a fantastic option for a simple micro dosing experience with excellent vapor quality because it’s an on-demand convection vaporizer. You have the option of packing it fully but not vaporizing it all at once. 

Just pick one of the seven preset temperature settings, take a couple of small hits and come back to it later. This is because the Firefly 2+ only runs the heat as you draw from the device and cools the oven down between hits.

Best Dry Herb Aromatherapy Vaporizer for Large Amounts

Sometimes you just want to plonk down on the couch for a long, unwinding session. Or maybe you want to have a social aromatherapy session with friends. These options have sizable ovens to take care of that.


The oven size of the DaVinci isn’t the only factor making it the best for chewing through large amounts of botanicals. With a big conduction 0.5g oven capacity and powerful Boost mode it can extract your herbal benefits quicker.

The DaVinci IQC also features a recessed mouthpiece design to prevent saliva from being shared during group sessions. You can also use the DaVinci Flavour Chamber in the IQC to add flavours to your aromatherapy session. Experiment placing the chamber in the vapor path once filled with peppermint leaves, lavender flowers or orange peel. 

Big oven, big possibilities!

Honourable Mention : Arizer Desktop Devices

Any of the Arizer desktop devices will ensure you never have to put your sessions on pause just to reload. The Arizer XQ2, Arizer Extreme Q and Arizer V-Tower build upon tried-and-true designs from one of the best names in the industry. 

Their broad precision temperature control from 50°C to 260°C (122°F to 500°F) enables you to push out clouds from large dry herb amounts. 

With the Arizer XQ2 you’ll get two Glass Connoisseur Bowls with two chamber sizes:

  1. ‘Cloud Chamber’ with large capacity for quick and potent vapor production.
  2. ‘Flavor Chamber’ with small microdosing capacity for light, smooth, and tasty vapor. 

For longer sessions, heavier users or parties, the larger chamber can handle 0.5g with no sweat. The Arizer Extreme Q and V-Tower’s Glass Cyclone Bowl can hold approximately 0.7 grams which is really admirable.

The WoodWynd aesthetically blends classic craftsmanship with modern technology. Its sleek, handcrafted wooden body, crafted from the finest padauk wood, exudes an aura of sophistication and refinement. The hourglass shape not only complements the vaporizer's elegant design but also ensures a comfortable and ergonomic grip. It reminds us of a treasured find at a vintage store, speaking volumes about its owner's tastes.

DynaVap WoodWynd Vaporizer
