The handheld Phedor Vaporizer is one of our top-selling models. We think this is likely due to the fact that it is highly portable. Its competition is somewhat lacking: the VaporGenie is not a true, electronic vaporizer and the Oxygen O2 Mini handheld has some design issues i.e. a tiny filling chamber. Read more about the Phedor in our most recent Staff Review.
There is clearly a lot demand for a good, portable vaporizer, but the technology is still catching up. The three handheld models we carry all approach vaporization differently. The Oxygen Mini is the only true, electronic vaporizer, but it’s still hard to scale all the components down. The VaporGenie mixes hot air from a lighter with cooler air. And the Phedor is a lot more like a lighter than a vaporizer. We’re interested to see how this area develops. Hopefully, good portable vaporizers will be available in the not-too-distant-future!
