    after some research i've narrowed it down to a few vaporizers

    these seem to be well-liked vapes and mentioned quite often.

    what I want:
    dense vapor, cost-efficient is nice but yet heavy hitting, easy to carry around, not to hard to conceal if i wanted to use it in public.

    also, i do want people to point out which vape out of those listed is the better, and why.

    the LSV does not fit your what i want description.

    I havent owned a pax or inhalator style vaporizer yet so i cant comment much on them. some other models to look at that might interest you are the solo, da vinci, palm 2.0 is a new portable, various thermovape products.

    I use a MFLB for out and about use and really like it since you were looking for opinions on other vapes.

    sorry i couldnt be more helpful.

    well, using it in public isnt a necessity. ill use it mostly when im relaxing in my room, if the other requisitions are met i'd be more than happy to look into it

    my friend has a mflb but he didnt like it and it seems to be outdated in performance area by newer vapes

    you should decide where your most common vape area will be and base your decision about that.

    if being portable isnt your #1 or #2 concern id look into desktop vapes instead of portables.

    you can buy a vaporgenie for <50$ if you decide you need somethin portable after you get a desktop

    "Better" depends on individual preference, meaning what type of vape appeals to you as far as features. There is no best portable or best home vape.

    Many people that don't take the time to figure out the LB don't like it. Most of them also have unrealistic expectations of it. You could argue "outdated", but you could also argue that no other portable has yet to approach the LB in several areas, including battery operation. Other vapes that use lithium batteries have to be recharged. The LB just needs a fresh battery.

    One of these things is not like the others, the LSV. IMO generally something with a power cord is going to outperform portables.... USUALLY.

    From the options you got, i would go with the Inhalater.

    It can be loaded with a lot of material, so it has the potential to be a heavy hitter although others excel at it while the INH doesn't.

    It has a good battery life and it is charged by USB, always a plus.

    The taste is quite good, although you don't mention that as a defining factor it is always good.

    It is easily carried and concealead and it has no breakable parts.

    I tried many vapes, nothing is better than a vapor lighter. Google it, do yourself a big favor.

    What vapes have you tried? Please explain WHY you believe that no other vape is better?

    I'm asking you these questions because I'm really trying to take your post seriously, unless of course...........you don't, do you? :shrug:

    This is weird. I don't know if I should take you seriously, or if this was done "tongue in cheek".

    I am serious, you should trust google.

    All good vapes are hot air powered. Conduction vapes are all junk. The contact area has to be hotter than thc boiling temperature, therefor some of the weed will combusting during vaping.

    The best conventional vapes are volcano, extr q, pax ... but nothing is even close. The vapor lighter is so easy to use and so efficient, vapor taste much better, I say way better.

    Try it and report back.

    So let me get this straight. You believe that the best "conventional vapes are the 'Cano, the EQ and the Pax and that I should "trust" google and believe that the VaporLighter is the absolute best vaporizer there is?

    And.........you believe that all conduction vapes will combust?

    You have much to learn, grasshopper...............much to learn.

    Or...you could open a thread about the vapor lighter? I don't think the OP would consider a vapor lighter remotely discreet for use in public?
    I'd reccomend the Inhalater for your needs.

    We all have much to learn. Only youself can tell what's best way to vaping. I tried so I know.

    Cut a piece of tin fol, put on your lighter. Maybe you'll find a whole new world. Nothing to lose.

    Hot air passes through weed, you get vapor. Adjust the temp you get vapor of thc, cbd etc...if temp gets too high, busted.

    When a lighter is lit, you see the flame, don't see the hot co2 and h2o produced by the flame. If your eyes only can see heat not color, you will see the flame part is hotter, about 1000 F, and you will see the hot co2 and h2o and ambient air mixture above the flame is like a tail raising up and the temp is like 900, 800, 700..... hot enough to smoke or to vaporize.

    But there is a problem, the hot tail is raising up quickly and move with ambient air. It is hard to locate the right spot to inhale the right temp to vaping.

    Now you put a flame casing on a lighter, you can easily control the temp you like. The lighter becomes a hot air supply, just as the main part of any convection vape. Your pipe is the rest part.

    By adjusting the position/distance between the lighter and the pipe, you can adjust temp as wish instantly. You can take as big hit as you want.

    You can vaping a cig or cigar too, but it's hard to take big draw and paper vapor is so nasty.

    DIY try it!

    maybe if youre in a bind and have NOTHING else available you could do that, but it will not perform nearly as well as other options available.

    we try to be subjective here and find what fits everyones needs, please try to remember that. youre presenting your opinion as facts. please do some research and youll learn why others have been sort of brash towards your suggestion.

    I used it at local bar where people vaping ecig. I put tobacco in my pipe thou. I wish I am in those two cool states.

    Thanks! All is good.

    I found two comments on youtube about the lighter. The second guy is a cano user.

    seriously this is an epic idea, I was wondering if you could just make a lighter that vaporizes and the internet led me to this awesome genius.

    this has gotta be the single best value for money vape.

    I use 1.5 Bic lighter to vaporize every day. 500 last year.

    At first was a vapor slut, sucked too much lighter fuel, in less than 2 weeks, my gums turn red and bleeding, toothache and feel bad. I dump the slut and called my friends also using it.

    I give away all my smoking tools long time ago. The vapor lighter is my best friend forever.

    plenty not pax, still typo a lot, bad weed.

    wow, i saw that rig before and i am sure it works but.. aren't you worried about the amount of butane you are inhaling? Also, the taste is impossible to be as good as the majority of the vaporizers out there, not to mention it is much more difficult to master that thing.

    I don't know why you use that health hazard when you can just buy a Vaporgenie which does about the same and it costs 50$.. with 500 lighters at 1$ a piece you just spent 500$ on lighters.

    If you're happy with it, that's fine.. but to me that vapor lighter is almost as bad as smoking.
