    Hi all,

    I'm looking to buy a portable, i.e., battery-driven, vape. The stealthier the better; a pen vape is optimal because I could use it openly and everyone would assume it's some e-cig thingy. Price doesn't matter. I care a lot about air path, i.e., all glass is best, metal ok, plastic not really. I'd use it for herb only, but if it can do concentrates, why not.

    I think a pnp with the new glass tip would suit me, but I didnt find it easy to browse the whole thread on it to look for potential problems.

    Any help, hints, etc are really appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I'm not the right person to answer that question, but some info that may help those with a greater level of expertise..

    What is your price range, and what is your experience with portable/desktop vapes?

    If you are patient enough, the Grasshoper might fit the bill. Or the Spyre/UpToke, or the INH05...or...or... :p

    Thanks for your replies.

    Price is not important to me, only quality.
    I got a LSV, which is perfect but with a plug, and a MFLB, which takes too much time and work during travel.

    Not really patient :) Also I dont really wanna test out new products, but rather something that has proven itself for at least some time

    From what I understand, there really isn't anything pen-sized that will do the job properly. I think something like the PAX is the most efficient stealth option I've seen yet for ground herbs

    Do you have any thoughts on the pnp? It would be sufficiently pen-like for me.

    Can't really comment on the PNP since I've never used one, and don't know much about them. A few people have them on here, don't see many fanboys for the PNP. I'm sure it would fit your need for stealth just fine. But performance might not be as spectacular as other more popular vapes on this site.

    I haven't followed the PNP thread for a while and I am sure others will chime in. Iirc it's harsh vaping native for anything above power lvl 2 making the pinnacle water tool almost a necessity, for most people who want to do higher temp vaping and significantly taking away from the stealth factor...

    FWIW: I use my portable mech mod for dabs on the go when I really need stealth, and my lotus for when stealth isn't a huge deal and I just need to sneak in a couple quick big hits.

    If you aren't into testing products then skip the PPro or PNP as they have many issues with warranty issues and haven't figured out a cure for the pong/mouthpiece that is permanent yet. Start 30 pages back from the end of the Pinnacle page to get a good clue on if its going to work for you. The Indica is similar to the pax but not very stealth when using. Way stealth when just laying around or in your pocket as it looks like a zippo. The Firefly is a good option but I found it was just too heavy in my pocket. The Pax takes to much cleaning in my opinion. Most of the pen vapes are way harsh for straight herbs but stealth. I was at a Burning Spear Concert a couple weeks ago and the security was out of hand. I looked over and this couple are passing a vape pen looked like the Atmos back and forth. Pretty funny. My solo was resting in my car. Sadly it wouldn't talk to me for a few weeks for not trying to bring it in. Yes none of these are actual pen vapes not much more to say about that unless you are going to use concentrates. Good luck

    I have looked long and far for a pen vape, Grasshopper is the safest bet for that type if it turns out well....

    Otherwise the Pax seems like the only really stealthy device. I wish someone would make one the size of the AtmosRaw, guessing that's not even possible yet...

    The T-Vape maybe. I just got an awesome pen vaporizer. The Vaporbros dabbler. But it is only for concentrates. A pen that does herb well is the holy grail.

    Might not be a couple years till we see it in E-Cigarette size, even the Grasshopper isn't perfect size wise but its better then whats out now IMO.

    Keep in mind that even big-battery E-Cigs are the same size if not bigger. For example, I owned a Provari and it was as tall (or taller with extension 18650) as my Solo but smaller diameter wise.

    @HillaryClinton But keep me/us up to date on the Grasshopper I am very interested!

    Lets not forget that The Grasshopper does not exist yet and it is possible that it may never do so. You can't bank a promise :|
