5 Reasons to Own a Handheld Vaporizer

Handheld vaporizers are the latest evolutionary stage of vaping devices, an answer to the modern commuter lifestyle, and a solution for vaping discretely in public. The best portable vaporizers pack the high-level vapor production of desktop vapes in compact units that aren't anchored to an AC power outlet. Handheld vaporizers are also more affordable than larger vaporizers, and easier to operate. Let’s unpack the 5 top reasons for going portable at your next vaporization session.


The portable nature of handheld vaporizers enables you to vape from just about anywhere. This accommodates those who lead busy lifestyles. You can vape with your handheld vaporizer on your lunch break, while walking about town, and on your commute. Handheld vaporizers like the KandyPens Gravity vape pen are especially lightweight and compact, making it easy to carry them around wherever life leads you.


 Handheld vaporizers are discreet. Their compact nature makes them easy to conceal in the palm of your hand. They can also be designed specifically with discretion in mind. Vape pens, for example, resemble ecigarettes, giving the appearance that you’re vaping nicotine eliquid no matter what you’re actually vaping. Some handheld vaporizers are shaped like inhalers, travel mugs, and car key fobs. For those who vape outside the house and want to keep it low-key, handheld vaporizers are ideal.


When time is money, convenience is important. Handheld vaporizers are perhaps the most convenient type of vape. Many portable vapes have easy-to-use single button controls with preset temperatures that are optimized for the most popular strains and concentrates. Some vaporizers like the PAX 3 can even be controlled via smartphone, that way you can boot up your vape and choose a vaporization temperature while the device sits in your pocket.


If you’re vaping on a budget, handheld vaporizers are the most affordable vaporizers on the market. While high-end units like the Firefly 2 run expensive, cheap vaporizers like the Pulsar APX offer decent vapor production at a fair price. In fact, many portable vaporizers are affordable, especially in relation to larger, pricier desktop vaporizers. By spending less on a handheld vaporizer, you can invest more on vaping materials, replacement parts, and customization.


Lastly, handheld vaporizers are evolving at a fast rate. With a high demand for portable vapes, manufacturers are scrambling to innovate. We as consumers get to enjoy a plethora of highly advanced vaporizers as a result. Just look at the numbers. There are many more handheld vapes on the market than desktop units. That’s because portable vapes accommodate the modern lifestyle. They’re easy to carry around, affordable, easy to use, and discreet. From the DaVinci IQ to the PAX 3 and Firefly 2, there’s never been a better time to own a handheld vaporizer.
