Desktop vaporizers have been popular since the very beginning, and with good reason! They really pack a punch, some don’t need to be recharged, and they offer a more complete and satisfying vaping experience. But what is a desktop vaporizer?

Desktop vaporizers are non-portable vaporizer units which typically need to be plugged in to an external power source, such as an outlet. They come in all different shapes and sizes, but they are usually larger than a portable vaporizer, thus explaining the name ‘desktop vaporizer’.

They are widely known for their quick vapor production and the large amounts of vapor they produce. These two features, along with the need to recharge it every few hours, makes desktop vaporizers perfect for parties and gatherings, or even vapor-packed personal sessions!

But over the years, many different models have been introduced to the market, so finding the perfect vaporizer can be a bit tedious. So before you start on your vaporizer quest, we decided to make it a bit easier for you and we created this list of our personal favorites. Take a look!


Best Overall – Volcano Vaporizer Hybrid

In the past, Storz & Bickel produced the Volcano Classic and the Volcano Digit. These were both very popular in their time. However, Storz & Bickel just came out with a 2019 Volcano Hybrid which has taken the world by storm!

The Volcano Hybrid is unique for many different reasons, but the most unique of these is its balloon feature. This feature allows users to fill up balloon-like bags with fresh vapor, and vapes to their heart’s content! 

Not only does the balloon feature allow you to store vapor, but it allows you to also vape from the balloons! All users need to do is fill up the bag, put a mouthpiece on the balloon, and then vape from it! It’s a very unique feature, and it allows users to have loads of ‘high times’ whenever they want. 

If users aren’t in the mood for filling balloons, they can attach a whip to the Hybrid unit instead. The whip allows users to vape normally from the Hybrid, and if it’s long enough, they can even do so from the comfort of their sofa! 

The Hybrid offers delicious vapor, nice big hits, and huge clouds of dense vapor. It is really worth buying if you want a modern vaporizer that offers all you want and more, that is also good for sharing with your friends.

The Dr. Dabber brand is well-known for its compact designs, but their innovative take on a desktop vaporizer is simply amazing. They bent the ‘rules’ of desktop vape design and made this small and sleek e-nail for everyone to use.

When it comes to e-nails, people tend to get a little intimidated by the way they look. But the Boost is incredibly easy to use and understand. It’s very intuitive, very easy to get the hang of, and overall just a great vape.

When using an e-nail, large and dense vape hits aren’t usually expected. However, the Boost is here to change this. When vaping concentrates from the Boost, you’ll get the biggest hits, and it’s wonderful.

If you give this unit a try, you will find that it looks more intimidating than it really is. Therefore, give this unit a try, and reap the benefits of this compact and sleek vaporizer!
