Top 10 Best Convection Vaporizers [AWESOME List]

Want more purity from your convection vaporizer? Then you're in the right place.

Today I'm going to show you the 10 Best Convection Vaporizers. We've got the latest heavy hitters here...and some classics that just keep on vaping.

The best part?

There's evidence that these convection vapes extract more flavor and effects than conduction devices, all without burning material. Let's talk the best convection!

The Top 10 Best Convection Vaporizers 

Crafty+ Vaporizer


  • Heavy-Duty Plastic
  • Improved Ribbed Design
  • Low-Draw Resistance
  • Hybrid Convection/Conduction Heating
  • Swivel Mouthpiece
  • Normal & Boost Mode
  • Smartphone App

The Crafty+ vaporizer is the improved version of the the iconic Crafty vaporizer and delivers more sessions and faster heat-up times than its older brother. The Crafty+ features a slimmer body for a more pocket-sized design.

The preset temperature settings are optimized for immediate use, and a new Super-Boost mode produces thick vapor clouds from dry herb and concentrates with just three clicks. The Crafty+ also boasts an improved battery life and an updated circuit board for more reliable performance.

Once the Crafty+ is heated, swivel out the mouthpiece and take a draw. For big hits, you'll need a longer inhale. I recommend a nice 10-second draw at a slow pace. That will give you a fuller hit.
Expect around ten to 12 large hits per bowl.

The Crafty+ is a powerful portable convection vaporizer with strong and smooth vapor. Its performance is similar to the Plenty but it's more compact and powerful than its predecessor, making it easier to carry around.

Here's the cherry on top...

You can modify the default temp settings via smartphone using a mobile app.


DaVinci IQ 2 

DaVinci IQ 2 Vaporizer


  • Dual Use Vaporizer
  • Adjustable Airflow Via Air Dial
  • On Device Dosage Calculation
  • 9% Larger
  • Brushed Aluminum Shell 

The DaVinci IQ 2 Portable Vaporizer is a step up from the OG IQ vaporizer because it features dual-compatibility, adjustable airflow, dosage information, and an insulated oven. The adjustable airflow is a great add-on because it lets you have total control over your draw resistance and airflow. In other words, if you want less dense vapor, just increase the airflow, and those seeking denser clouds will use the AirDial to decrease airflow.

Here's one thing that's absolutely excellent about the DaVinci IQ 2 Vaporizer...

The elite conduction heating system ensures more consistent heating performance and its thicker oven offers a more even and flavorful roast of your materials. Plus, the glass-lined conduction oven heats your material to your preferred temperature in less than a minute.

Another overhaul is the “Fill Your Own - Know Your Dose” feature that lets you enter your dry herb or concentrate’s potency and the amount of material in your oven, so the IQ 2 can track and report your dosage. You’ll also be able to add a “maximum dose per session” via the DaVinci IQ 2 app.

A couple of tweaks include an extended pearl to make your sessions more enjoyable. The IQ 2’s pearl was increased by 30%, making adjusting materials easier. This allows you to modify your oven size and pack your materials more tightly. The oven now has better insulation because of the battery, making the oven 20% thicker. With a better-insulated oven, you get better vaporization results for more flavor and vapor production.

How is the vapor quality?

Awesome. Quick heat-up times, improved heating, and glass-lined oven deliver satisfying vapor quickly.

If you want a convection vaporizer that's powerful and gives you complete control over your sessions, this is a great option.

Firefly 2+ 
Firefly 2+ vaporizer


  • Dynamic Convection Heating
  • Improved Airflow System
  • 3-Second Heat Up
  • Dual Touch Sensor Controls
  • Borosilicate Glass Air Path & Bowl
  • Mobile App
  • Dry Herb & Concentrate Compatibility

The Firefly 2+ is a huge improvement on the original Firefly 2 vaporizer. Firefly gave the 2+ 33% more airflow than its predecessor, tweaked the heating profiles to ensure easier draws, and updated the firmware to help the learning curve. 

The Dynamic Convection Heating system is efficient and great for microdosers, and the three-second heat up time means anytime you want vapor, you can have it. 

Borosilicate glass was used for the bowl and air path and are both highly thermal-resistant and preserve flavor. To load the Firefly 2+, snap off the magnetic faceplate to reveal the bowl, and the new Firefly logo. 

The Firefly 2+ has dual touch controls and is a litte easier to use than the Firefly 2. Newer vaporizer users or those looking for their first "elite" vape won't be intimidated by this vaporizer. I found the touch sensors not only convenient but fun.

The Firefly 2+ has many cool features. Here's one that I really like...

You can control everything via mobile app. Compatible with iOS and Android, the Firefly Vapor app lets you adjust the temperature from your smartphone. You can also change temp directly from the Firefly 2+. The app is easy-to-use and the visuals are stimulating and fun.

The Firefly 2+ has awesome flavor and vapor quality with a shorter learning curve than the previous model. An added bonus to the Firefly 2+ is that even with the improvements made, it is cheaper than the original Firefly 2. Not a bad combo right?




G Pen Pro 

G Pen Pro vaporizer



  • Convection Heating
  • Ceramic Chamber
  • 3 Heat Settings
  • Super Compact
  • Color-Coded Temperature Lights
  • Rapid Heat Up

The G Pen Pro is one of the most compact dry herb convection vaporizers. It's sleek and slender, almost like a vape pen. I'm impressed by its vapor quality considering the small size.

This is a "session" vaporizer that stays heated until you turn it off. You don't have to reheat everytime you want to take a hit. It's better suited for those who like to take multiple draws per session.

So how does this little guy make such great vapor?

It's all in the heating. The chamber is a highly thermal-resistant white ceramic that cooks material without burning it. Hot air flows in through tiny holes and vaporizes dry herb nice and evenly.

Do keep in mind, those tiny holes will clog after a few sessions. You can keep them clean with some isopropyl and a cleaning tool or q-tip.

Higher Standards ISO Pure comes highly recommended. It's 99% isopropyl, which really breaks down grime. And you can pick up Pipe Dreamz pipe cleaners for clearing out air paths.

Using the G Pen Pro is very easy. You don't have to fiddle with it much.

Power on by clicking the button five times in rapid succession. The LEDs will light up, reverting back to your last temperature.

There are three temperature settings: blue (375 °F), green (400 °F), and red (428 °F).

To select a temperature, press and hold the button for five seconds. The LED lights will change colors, signaling that the device has cycled to the next setting. Once you've toggled to your favorite setting, the device will take 30 seconds to heat.

This is a super compact, mid-range convection vaporizer that I can safely recommend to anyone who wants a reliable on-the-go option.

I recommend using the green temperature setting (400F °F) for the best results.

DaVinci IQC
DaVinci IQC Vaporizer


  • Dry Herb And Concentrate Compatible
  • 0.5g Dry Herb Oven
  • 0.2g Dosage Pod
  • Glass Lined Over, Heat-Not-Burn Conduction
  • Airtight For Even Heat Distribution
  • Glass And Zirconia Ceramic Delivers Flavorful Vapor
  • Smart Paths And Precision Temperature Mode
  • 30 Second Heat Up Time
  • USB-C Charging
  • 5 Year Warranty

The DaVinci IQC Precision Vaporizer is a dual-use vaporizer that has impressive vapor quality, ease-of-use, and pocket-friendly design is great for the price. The IQC is slightly bigger than the original IQ vaporizer because it comes with extra battery insulation and a thicker oven.

The chamber is crafted from a ceramic glass lined airpath and a zirconia pearl without any metal or plastic parts, delivering unprecedented purity and flavorful vapor with each draw.

This dual-use vaporizer is great for connoisseurs who like to switch between dry herbs and concentrate sessions. Just put your dry herbs into the chamber to start vaping. You can purchase dosage pods separately to load with your favorite concentrate.

The IQC’s temperature is simple and wide, leaving much to be explored. To toggle between temperatures by using the + or - 1 degrees for precision mode. Use smart paths for an easy-to-use, guided vaping experience.

Aside from the flavorful vapor and temperature range, the IQC vape has removable 18650 batteries and utilizes USB-C charging, so six-hour charging is a thing of the past. It also has a mobile app you can download from the Google Play Store. Once you pair the vape, you can control it from your device to fit your vaping style.

This is a good portable convection vape that’s perfect for beginners but even experienced users will appreciate its ability to deliver performance.

Volcano Classic 
Volcano Classic


  • Medical-rade Heating Element
  • Precision Temperature (104 °F - 446 °F)
  • Convection Heating
  • Balloon Bag System
  • 3 Year Warranty

If budget isn't a concern for you, the Volcano Vaporizer by Storz & Bickel is arguably one of the best convection vaporizers on the market. It's equipped with advanced features like precise temperature control, convection heating, and an easy-to-use balloon bag system.

The powerful convection heating system delivers 95% of its vapor consisting of compounds found in dry herbs, so you're getting pure vapor. This makes the Volcano desktop vaporizer a popular choice among consumers.

The Volcano Classic is also easy to use, thanks to the simple hardware design. To adjust the temperature, simply turn the dial from 266 °F-446 °F (130°C-230°C). After selecting your desired temperature, it'll heat up in 180 seconds. When the orange light turns off, dock the orange mouthpiece onto the filing chamber, push the green button to start blowing air into the bag, and press it again when there's enough vapor in the bag.

Then detach the bag from the filling chamber, attach the black mouthpiece, and it's time to vape. For any real smoker looking to add to their collection and step up their game, the Volcano deserve a look.

  • Awesome Flavor
  • Hybrid Convection/Conduction Heating
  • Precision Temperature Control
  • Upgraded Battery
  • 45-Second Heat Up

This device has two awesome features…

The first is its glass air path. It comes with two glass aroma tubes that plug into the chamber. They preserve flavor and keep hits cool.

The second outstanding feature is an upgraded battery. It gives you up to 80 minutes of continuous vaping, which breaks down into roughly seven ten-minute sessions.

The batteries are replaceable, so you can keep a fully charged one on hand to swap in when needed.

This dry herb convection vaporizer has pure and smooth vapor quality—the ceramic heating element and borosilicate glass parts make sure of that. If you're looking for great flavor that you can enjoy at home, this is the right vaporizer for you.

Mighty Vaporizer

  • Hybrid Convection/Conduction Heating
  • Precision Temperature Control
  • German Engineering
  • LED Screen
  • High-Quality Plastic
  • Tactical, Vented Design
  • Swivel Mouthpiece
  • Vibration Notifications

The Mighty is a portable vaporizer by Storz & Bickel, makers of the iconic Volcano. It’s the big brother to the Crafty, offering the same heating system with more battery power, an LED screen, and precision temperature. It's more of a cordless home vape than an on-the-go device.

The larger size makes room for a second battery pack; the Mighty delivers 90 minutes of vaping time compared with the Crafty's 45 minutes.

This is a very reliable German-engineered convection vape. The body is high-grade plastic that's lightweight and sturdy. The exterior has little ridges that vent out heat and make the unit easy to grip.

But here's the most outstanding thing about the Mighty…

Its vapor production is worlds beyond the usual portable vaporizer. The convection/conduction oven pulls intense flavor and smoothness from dry herb.

The temperature range is also wide for a portable device. You can choose any setting between 104 °F - 410 °F, which leaves much room for experimentation. The LED screen shows the chosen and current temperature as well as battery power.

To access the dry herb chamber, just twist off the top piece. The capacity is .3 grams. The chamber works quite well with material from a four-piece grinder. The included filling tool makes loading convenient.

The Mighty is one of the best convection dry herb vaporizers out there, placing the power of desktop vaporizers into a portable device.

Arizer Solo 2 
Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer



  • Hybrid Convection/Conduction Heating
  • Precision Temperature Control
  • Borosilicate Glass Aroma Tubes
  • Customizable Settings
  • 3-Hour Battery Life
  • Fast Heating

The Arizer Solo 2 is a portable dry herb vaporizer that delivers a lot of flavor. It is the big brother of the Arizer Air 2. A little on the larger size, it is the best convection vaporizer if you're looking for a cordless at-home device.

As far as flavor goes, the Solo II delivers the goods. The borosilicate glass aroma tubes deliver incredibly delicious hits. The glass is highly resistant to heat, preserving essential tastes. Just load dry herb into the chamber on the end of the tube, then plug it into the stainless steel heating chamber.

The chamber features recessed heat jets for more airflow. As a result, the Solo 2 can keep up with the biggest inhales, continuing to deliver vapor the longer you draw in. 

The Solo 2 has excellent battery life. You get roughly three hours of continuous use from a full charge. That's double the amount of the original Arizer Solo.

That's not all there is to love about the Solo 2…

It also gives you full control over sessions with a digital screen. You can adjust precision temperature, automatic shutoff, beep notifications, and screen brightness with ease.

Once you choose a precise temperature (anything between 122 °F - 428 °F), the Solo 2 is ready in roughly 30 seconds. What comes next is not to be missed. Expect intensely flavorful vapor with a smoothness you don't normally find in portable vaporizers.

What is a Convection Vaporizer?

So you've heard that convection is better than conduction at making superb vapor. But what exactly IS a convection vaporizer? In most cases, it's a pocket-friendly, easy-to-use device.

But not just any device—it’s a device designed to give you the most flavor and potency from dry herb without the harmful downsides of smoking.

Rather than burning your material, the best convection vaporizers will heat it just beneath the point of combustion. The resulting vapor is comfortable, pure, and free of smoky harshness.

But how exactly do convection vaporizers pull off that awesome vapor?

How Does a Convection Dry Herb Vaporizer Work?

Instead of heating material directly against the hot surfaces of a heating element, convection vaporizers surround dry herb in hot air.

Hot air generally flows through tiny holes within the chamber, making contact with every millimeter of exposed surface area. Why does this matter?

Because the heating is even and thorough, releasing more flavors from less material. Nothing is burned or wasted. This not only promises tastier, smoother vapor, but also saves you money.

Do Convection Vapes Smell?

Woman using a convection vaporizer in her home

The fact is convection vaporizers smell. Just not as bad as smoke. The smell is more of a fragrance than an odor.

Convection smells less than other heating types because it doesn't overcook material. It keeps the temperature just right for extracting compounds without burning the dry herb.

The odor will hang around for five to ten minutes. However, it won't stick to the walls and furniture like smoke.
