The Best Vaporizers of 2020: DopeBoo Ultimate Guide
This collection of vaporizers has earned the BOO Paw of Approval. From classic to cutting-edge, these devices will have you belly up with pleasure! To streamline your shopping experience, we've organized this awesome lineup by level of portability, concentrate/dry herb compatibility, and special features like a smartphone app.
Whether you’re heading out for a romp through the park or getting cozy with your favorite furry friends on a Netflix binge -- here are DopeBoo's highest rated, The Best Vaporizers of 2020 are below.
1. BEST DRY HERB VAPORIZERS
Where it all began. These dry herb vapes were just pups in the industry at one time, but have been honed for peak-performance through the generations. Storz & Bickel’s famous Mighty and the classic Easy Vape first mastered dry herb vapor like Boo has mastered the art-of-fetch. Today, the portable PAX 3 and Apollo AirVape XS have stepped up with slicker profiles to deliver top-shelf quality vapor that comes close to, but doesn't quite match the classics. Of the dry herb lineup, the DaVinci IQ Vaporizer takes the cake.
This vaporizer matches Storz & Bickel’s clean crisp rips with the portability of a PAX and its own flawless engineering. The 7th Floor Sidekick Vaporizer is a close runner up with a slew of user-oriented features like a built-in stir stick powered by the push of a button and clean glass pathways.
2. Best CONCENTRATE Vaporizers
A quality concentrate vaporizer in 2020 means you barely have to concentrate on your concentrates at all! (And you thought bulldogs were too dense for tongue-twisters.) These wax-friendly vapes do the work for you like a well-trained canine. Because of the efficient size of dabbing, many of these are also our best vape pens. The PuffCo PRO2 is a completely clean experience with zero fibers, glues, or dyes to tinge the purity of your vapor. KandyPens Gravity has also stepped up with a perfect blend of quartz and titanium that will allow your concentrates to flourish. Our guides can help you get to know all the materials and accessories that take concentrates to the next level (whether by vaporizer or dab rig). And don't forget to check out our concentrate tools to help to keep your paws clean.

3. Best DUAL-FUNCTION Vaporizers
As both a gentleman and a scholar, Boo can truly appreciate a great dual function device. While many devices can work with both dry herbs and concentrates -- it doesn’t mean they should. The Firefly 2, DaVinci, and PAX 3 are three portable vaporizers that actually deliver top-notch vapor from both materials. You’ll get clean, flavorful, pure vapor whether you’re delighting over dry herbs or getting creative with concentrates. Those of us who enjoy vapor at-home will appreciate that Storz & Bickel has stepped up to dual function by adding liquid pads to the Volcano, just as the Vapir Rise Vaporizer has introduced the oil chamber. The best dual function desktop vaporizer, however, is the luxurious and exquisitely crafted 7th Floor Super Surfer Vaporizer. This excellent device is crafted with hand-blown Elev8 glass, high grade aluminum, and includes both balloon bag and whip for added versatility.
4. Best DESKTOP Vaporizers
Gadget lovers have all got their eye on portable vapes, but true connoisseurs know that even in 2020, a stationary vaporizer is where the magic really happens. These desktop devices never dwindle in power and tend to hold a more generous portion of your favorite material. Nearly all of today’s desktop vapes work with both dry herbs and concentrates. The Classic Volcano first launched the word “vaporizer” into a household term. Today, such exquisite devices as the Herbalizer and Arizer Extreme Q have elevated desktop vaping to a truly luxurious experience. These devices are excellent for placing on the coffee table when friends come to visit, and both also function as open air oil diffusers for your favorite aromatherapy oils when not paired with legal extracts.

5. Best PORTABLE Vaporizers
I’ve mentioned many of my most popular portables in the categories above, but there are still a few portable vaporizers that deserve an extra-special shoutout. In particular, Storz & Bickel’s Mighty and Crafty vaporizers feature the noteworthy engineering that launched the Volcano into must-have status on a portable design. Each device works with both dry herb and concentrates on the go, but Crafty has a smaller profile than the Mighty and definitely wins when it comes to portability. This dynamic duo also introduced us to the Dosing Capsules which let you pre-load and ration out your stash. The AirVape XS holds its own in flavor performance against its top-shelf peers, and boasts the slimmest profile of our portable winners. Looking for the DaVinci Micro? While this slick vape is among the smallest, it's power was disappointing, with draws that consistently underwhelmed. The best portable vaporizer for getting a reaction from the crowd is likley the Hydrology9 Vaporizer, (which integrates hydrodynamics with a vibrantly lit water chamber that glows a different color at every temp) but we find this more 'gimmicky' than 'functional.'

6. Best SMART Vaporizers
There’s an app for everything nowadays -- including for your vape! The DaVinci IQ Vaporizer, PAX 3 Vaporizer (Checkout our Pax 3 Review HERE), Storz & Bickel Crafty Vaporizer, and Firefly 2 Vaporizer are all leading the smart vape trend with their own Android/OS apps. The advantage of an app is an increased level of control that doesn’t burden your device with an onslaught of screens and buttons. Boo's clunky paws much prefer to swipe through settings on a smartphone than maneuvering tiny buttons on a pen. These apps allow you to quickly swipe through preset modes or get your preferred temp down to the single digit. The PAX 3 app even lets you play games with your vape.
