    So.. what's your preference?
    From looking at the threads with the most posts/views, it would see that the portable vape section of this forum is more popular, but I want to hear it from the horse's mouth!

    All my vaporizers are portable. I like using something small. I have 3 of the Pinnacle pros, 2 Solos, 1 Ascent and the No2. Recently I gave my MFLB away to a friend. Last week I just bought the Dabbler vape pen for wax/oils. I prefer using the Solo. I have the newer 2014 Solo and the older model that I use plugged in as a desktop using the PA.

    I have thought about buying the Herbalizer, it's a bit pricey though. Maybe when it comes down to a more reasonable price.

    Sell some of those Pinnacle Pros to raise the funds! :lol:

    I only have experience with one type of vape, and thats the Extreme Q (desktop)
    I fucking love it, but I can't judge the portables for myself unfortunately.

    I wouldn't sell the Pnps they aren't worth much, 2 have cracks around the collar. I have had all since around October of 2013. They should be covered under warranty IMO. VB feels differently and are not standing behind their product unfortunately but that's a looooong story, different thread.

    Early days, but it looks as if portable really is the most popular form of vaporizer. Are they more efficient / reliable, or is it simply because of their portability that they are so popular?

    Most desktops are more powerful and efficient than most portables. But not all.

    My older model Solo using the PA keeps me happy as a desk top. It's very dependable and gets the job done. It's so individualized we are all so different. What one person likes another person might not.

    I just gave a friend of mine my MFLB, I don't like using it, too much hassle with the battery. My friend loves it. He has the Vapir No 1, and is satisfied with it, it's too loud IMO, but the sound doesn't bother him.

    I pretty much only vape at home so a desktop was a natural choice. Couldn't be happier with my SSV. Wasn't planning on acquiring any portables but a ceramic dabbler cart fell into my lap and I love it too! Now I really want a lotus. Because. ...VAS!

    I started with a Solo, then i got the EQ which if not modded to user preference is a step backwards(Sorry just my opinion). Once I did some mods to the EQ I became more attached to the desktop. Then came the Cloud:disgust: this machine really screwed me up. I went on to the EVO :disgust::disgust::disgust: This made it much worst. For those not comprehending what Im saying, I love my SOLO its a BEAST but the quality of vapor I get from the EVO and the Cloud are just in another class. Hell I tried to go back to using my Cloud instead of using the EVO exclusively it was really hard. Yesterday I pulled out my EQ and put it back up after 2 hits. I felt bad for it like I was betraying an old friend. My solo is my on the go vape so its still used regularly but in my opinion there isnt anything to replace it on the market so its still used for that reason alone. I love the Solo but compared to my desktops its harsh. So if someone actually put out a portable that produced better quality vapor than the solo and not just looks better than my Solo maybe then I'll retire it but I must have a portable and a desktop at all times :2c:

    I used only portables for a few years even plugging 'em in and Tellin' myself they were just as good as a desktop.
    Then I bought a Vapolution and saw I was very wrong ! Very Wrong !
    ^^ (Then the Herbalaire, then an Underdog, Then the EV-2)

    Now if possible I will always use one of my plug-in vapes first. Going portable is cool if you need to but ...

    Years ago I used to use a portable vape a lot,
    but in the past ~2 years I've basically only used desktop vapes.

    I love the power of the plug-in vaporizers.

    I got a blackhole DBV unit, and it meets all my needs, quite well, I am however going to buy a new solo so I can vape outside every now and then.

    Man, the opposite. You won't find a portable that gives you clouds like your Nano. It's just not gonna happen yet. Unless of course you use a w9 oil vape, then you can achieve such clouds, just not with flowers lol.

    IME, portables are in their infancy. The only portable flower vape I have found satisfactory is the Solo, and the thing isn't even portable enough to bring out of the house really - also it's iconic factor and relative well-known status as a weed vape make it not stealthy at all!

    The PNP, as was covered earlier, is a garbage vaporizer which started from some good ideas, but was turned to garbage by the use of inferior materials and the most absolutely unforgivable customer service (rather lack thereof) I have ever seen. I hope that The Baker tanks, these people are not ethical enough to deserve to make money off what they do. Sorry for the digression from my response to the matter at hand, but I swore to myself that I would not let the device be mentioned without highlighting to all and sundry just how poorly these people have conducted themselves!

    As for how I tend to vape - I tend to use my quartz castle nail more than anything now, on my LW bubbler. Persei 3.7v herc or 3.7v kiss carts and shorty SS tube for when I'm out and about. However, for flowers, it's all about the desktops. I'll hit my solo through the direct draw stem (can't wait to get my Ed's shorty wong/stem in the next day or two! Glass stem on a portable just seems completely counterproductive to the portability part lol) if I'm in bed every now and then, but flowers and kief are mostly done through my E-Nano either in my LW bubbler or steamroller (SO TASTY!).

    However, my new custom worked oil mini rig will be here soon, which means I will be bothered to use my LW bubbler for flowers a lot more again, so this is subject to change!

    I must say, I use each of my vapes except the Lotus regularly (which is great, but is here as a backup piece - not as easy to use as my other vapes) ;)

    When I'm indoors it the vapolution2.0
    Outdoors it's the launch box.
    The vapolution2.0 for moist buds
    The LB for dry, real dry buds

    Interesting to hear peoples experiences. Respect+ to those who use both desktop and portable equally. They obviously have their benefits outdoors and indoors and for those that have the money to have a great desktop vape & a great portable, you're living the dream!

    VAS would be too much for me to comprehend in these early days of being a serial vapist.
    People of my nature are more succeptible to a nasty case of GAS, so wish me luck!

    Purely portable here but when I have the spare cash I'll definitely spend a week researching and get a desktop. I've a feeling I could get hooked on the researching alone.

    The portable I'm using is the Inhalater XP and I'm really loving it. Turning my mates onto vaporizers too as they're slowly realizing the health and financial benefits of it.
    What astounds me most is how little weed you can manage to get by on with a vape without tolerance building. So glad I found this place!

    I'm pretty much split 50/50 at home. FF, Solo, and HI all throughout the day to meet different purposes at different times. Quick tasty hits, sessions, big smooth hits through water, etc. So nice to have such quality and variety without having a ridiculous amount of vaporizers. I would love to have a ridiculous amount though... :lol:

    I used to think of the idea of a "home portable" as silly, but now I definitely get it. So nice to not be tied to your desktop and not have to sacrifice the experience. With my FF and Solo, I am able to get different pleasures than with my HI, so it's really great to have all three for at home.

    Whether you want to go for a quick walk and vape, or sit out on the porch, or my favorite, vape while taking a dump, you are going to appreciate that home portable... one way or another.

    When I'm on the go, I, believe it or not, tend to use Portables more... :ko:

    Lots of room for improvement as far as my on-the-go needs are concerned... :\

    In the style of me, a humorous reply...

    I'm a hit and run vaper.... that being I walk up to your loaded & ready vape, then I hit it and run! :lmao:


    But in all seriousness, I am a hit and run vaper. That was the reason for my mod of the EQ, so I could go grab a hit and back to what I was doing. I needed that one hit to be "huge" when necessary. I rarely have time ever for an extended session. (Note, Herbie takes this to the above and beyond!)
