Looking online you’ll find a bunch of vaporizer review sites…
They’ll throw around random numbers for different vaporizers, while leaving you completely in the dark as to how they got to these numbers.
I don’t know about you…but when I’m looking to spend my hard earned money , I would like to read reviews which are based on a SYSTEMATIC, ORGANIZED and CONSISTENT rating system.
Guess what…that is exactly what we do at Vaponaut.

How We Rate Vaporizers
We differentiate between 9 different rateable categories for desktop and 10 different rateable categories for portable vaporizers. The extra category for portable vaporizers, surprise surprise…is ‘Portbility’.
Every category is being rated on scale of 1 to 10. And every category consists of multiple rateable elements. We rate these category elements separately and then calculate the average. The result is the final grade for a particular category.
Lastly we calculate the average of all the categories and come to the final grade of the vaporizer.
What the End Score Means
The end score is calculated as the average of all the rateable categories. Obviously the higher the rating…the better the vaporizer, overall.
But there’s a catch:
When choosing a vaporizer, generally speaking…it’s more important that you pick a vaporizer based on YOUR specific preferences than one with a better general end mark.
What do I mean by this?
Let’s give an example:
Let’s say potency and flavor are extremely important to you, but the rest of the categories are less important.
This means you should first and foremost get a vaporizer which scores high on potency and flavor and not blindly go for the vaporizer which has the higher end score.
With this caveat in mind…we present you the best vaporizers overall below.
(haha, tricked you!)
Different Classes of Vaporizers
Before immediately jumping to the vaporizers with the highest ratings…
You have to realize that, generally speaking, high-end vaporizers are going to be rated higher than mid-range or low-end vaporizers…you’re paying for premium quality after all.
How do we classify vaporizers?
We do it based on 3 different price ranges, which slightly differ for portables vs desktops:
- Low-end: $0-150
- Mid-range: $150-250
- High-end: $250+
- Low-end: $0-200
- Mid-range: $200-300
- High-end: $300+
This is where your budget comes into play and you have to decide for yourself how much you are willing to spend on your new vaping companion.
