    I'm looking for a vape pen or a portable vaporizer for dry herb.i have an airizer solo but I lost the charger and it didn't really give me much of a buzz. I got a DGK G Pen but it doesn't work right. It heated up a little and shut off, luckily I got my money back on it. I need something inexpensive as I'm low income. I'm a medical mj patient who was just recently diagnosed with asthma. I need herb for fibromyalgia and arthritis.
    On the other hand it could be my tolerance as to why I don't get a buzz vaping. In that case does anyone know where I can buy a charger for the solo?

    I would suggest checking out the Omicron oil vaporizer. Given your health concerns I know of no oil vaporizer using safer materials in its construction.

    There's a thread here with hundreds of pages of information.

    If you want a small portable vaporizer that is efficient and reliable, get a Vapcap. I have chronic severe asthma and I use the Vapcap to ease nausea and pain symptoms from other health issues. I use a degummed hemp fiber filter in my Vapcaps to create a super smooth vapor that never irritated my lungs. The link below shows how I make The filters.


    The vapcap is made by Dynavap. It is tiny, the size and shape of a cigarette. They are arguably the most attractive vaporizers on the market and are made from materials like stainless steel, titanium and wood. No plastic anywhere. The price is very reasonable, from $55 for the basic all stainless steel M model to $95-$115 for the titanium tipped models and up to $190 for the top of the line all titanium Omni model. All the models are fantastic vapes.

    The Vapcap is a dry herb vape but it also handles hash and concentrates as well. It is surprisingly efficient and you will get much higher with less material than many other vapes. You'll certainly save money on bud.

    Vapcaps are heated by just about any heat source. The common way to heat them is with a small jet butane lighter with anywhere from one to 4 jets. I like this one, linked below, because it is about the same size as the Vaocap and since it is ignited using a flint, it is quiet as well. You heat the cap until it clicks a few seconds later and you are ready to toke. You can also use a bic, a candle, an induction heater that you plug in or just powered by batteries if you don't want a flame Other sources of heat for the Vapcal is a campfire stick a stove element of even a solar heater. When the power goes, no worries. No batteries or cords to fuss with, replace, charge or organize. The Vapcap will always work.


    This is a long term vape. You may consider putting it in your will, cause it will still be functioning. There are videos on YouTube showing the Vapcap being run over by monster trucks with only a scratch or two to show for it. They are tough as nails.


    One of the fun things about a Vapcap is that they are modular, meaning that the components are interchangable , so you can switch out bodies, stems, mouthpieces, condensers and tips for different applications or to create a look of your own. Beyond the stock midsections at the Dynavap site, there are custom aftermarket artists that make unbelievable pieces for your Vapcap. Check them out! These guys offer functional art.

    @phattpiggie thread, Phattiggies Wood Shed. PP makes stunningly beautiful hand turned wood stems. Check out some of the pictures on this page.


    @stardustsailor thread, Custom Carbless Titanium Stems. SDS makes super durable works of art stems from titanium with various patterns and anodization.


    @Winegums Etsy store and thread. He makes beautiful woods VonGs for use with water tools and storage and stash boxes.

    Vapcaps are really wonderful vapes and will last a lifetime and I highly recommend them.

    +1 with exception of disposables as odd as that sounds.

    To be honest it is really hard to find the right one vape which will be perfect for you. Usually, I prefer to ask about it some of my friends which have more experience than I am. But from time to time I have to find some info for my own. I really love different types of reviews on Youtube or on Vapingdaily all that I need is to read some of characteristics and compare them. Also, I prefer asking people on forums about it before the purchase.
    Hope you will find the best one for you)!
    Best regards!

    Pens are useless with herb except for the grasshopper.
    Vapcap is penlike and 100% reliable.
    Why restrict yourself to the pen type vape?
