Reviews of the Top 3 Portable Vaporizers

There are 2 standard choices in vaporizers; namely, portable and desktop. While there are people who prefer the desktop type (as these are ideal for home use), there are also those who prefer the portable models.

The main advantage to using a portable vaporizer is that it can be literally used anywhere. You can use it at home and you can choose to bring it along with you when you go out too. This provides for maximum flexibility; and you won’t have to do without a vaporizer even if you are always out of the house.

The only slight disadvantage to using a portable vaporizer is that they usually have a smaller chamber. Therefore, you may need to refill it more frequently throughout the day, depending on your use.
