Portable vaporizers consist of any vaporizer that can be used without being plugged into the wall. These handheld units boast advantages and disadvantages to be considered against your needs. Units in this category often benefit from an inherent discreteness. For a unit to be among the best portable vaporizers, it has to be small enough to carry around. As a result, these portable vaporizers are often easier to slip into your pocket or backpack and travel with. This means you’ll be able to have a quick session somewhere and easily pack up and move if you feel the need to make a move to a new location. Unfortunately, because portable vaporizers run off battery power, their output is lower than their stationary counterparts. This means that more often than not, units that specialize in dry botanical can’t vaporize concentrates well, if at all. This is because concentrates vaporize at a higher temperature than the compounds found in dry botanical. If you would like to buy any of the units below, check this portable vaporizer store out and support my reviewing efforts in the process. They only carry the best portable vaporizers however, which is a good thing. :)
