Due to its design the Firefly 2+ is also super easy to clean and maintain . Along with Volcano, Pax has been the face of vaporizers for a little while ago. The original rendition had a unique, sleek design that really helped it stand out from the crowd. The Pax 3 looks even better with new matte colours and has some big improvements to boot.
The best thing about the Pax 3 is probably it's size. There are smaller vaporizers available, but Pax has really nailed it with the perfect size for activities. It's awesome for hikes, skateboarding, snowboarding or anything else outdoors. It weighs only 93 grams which is pretty insane for all of the technology they pack in to it. The Pax 3 also heats up quickly in around 15-20 seconds. It uses lip sensing technology to tell when you're using it, so it can heat up the chamber which is super dope. The vapor you pull from the unit is surprisingly good too! It does run on a conduction oven which won't deliver the subtle flavours of a convection vaporizer, but that won't matter for the majority of people. They've also improved the battery life with the Pax 3.
You can use it for around an hour an a half before having to recharge. Even charging is cool with the Pax 3 with the innovative charging dock. You can tell that a lot of engineering went in to it.

They promised to deliver food-grade air paths that use convection technology to heat the herb, and they've delivered. While their first few vaporizers were great, they've released a true winner in the Fury Edge . The most notable part of the Healthy Rips Fury Edge is that it delivers (mostly) convection in a small package. Until this point if you wanted a portable vaporizer that fits in your pocket, you were most likely using conduction. While there's nothing wrong with conduction, convection is generally more efficient and delivers better flavour. They've also packed a 2300 mAh battery in to the Fury Edge which is a very decent battery. Our main complaint with the Fury 2 was that it wasn't truly portable since the battery was so small (and not replaceable). That's fixed and the Fury Edge runs for over an hour in use which is great. Not only that, but they've implemented USB-C charging. It charges quickly and USB-C doesn't wear out like a mini USB. Last but not least, one of the main reasons why the Fury Edge is nearing the top of our list is because of the price. Sure, the Mighty and Ghost MV1 have less draw resistance and have better flavour, but they're double the price . If you're looking for an affordable, portable, unit you should definitely check out the Fury Edge. The Healthy Rips Fury Edge also gives you a variety of attachments you can use. If you want to throw it in your pocket there's a plastic mouthpiece, or you can use a glass one while at home - totally up to you. See our full Fury Edge review if you want more info on it. Crafty+ The Crafty+ is the nimble little brother of the Mighty that's sitting up at the #1 spot. Depending who you talk to, and what you're looking for, the Crafty+ could take the top spot as the best portable vaporizer. It is cheaper and smaller than the Mighty which is great, but there are a few downsides. It doesn't have a built-in display which means you need to control the temperature settings from the app connected to your smart phone (which may not be possible since Apple banned vape apps). Also the vapor it produces isn't as cool as the Mighty.
The Crafty+ does have a much improved battery life over the original model though. It gives you almost 90 minutes of vaporizing off of single charge. And it also features pass-through charging so you can use it while it's plugged in. If you're looking for a true portable unit though you'll want the Crafty+ over the Mighty.
It weighs in at just around 135g which makes it discreet and can easily fit in your pocket. The Crafty+ is built tough too which means you don't really have to worry about it rattling around a bit. Just like all Volcano products, it has amazing vapor quality. It has a hybrid convection heating system which is impressive for a vaporizer of this size. Davinci has been making vaporizers for over five years now.
