Searching a good portable Vape to purchase for concentrates/crystals

Does anyone have any advice on a good portable vaporizer for concentrates?
I am new in vaping concentrates.
I am using CBD crystals which become liquid when heated.

At the moment i'm sprinkling crystals over the herbs in a V Leaf Go, but it is not ideal, as the vape gets dirty much faster due to the crystals.

thx :)

Abysmal Vapor

Saturnine in my mind
Since you are in EU options are pretty limited atm as far as i know. I recently got a Saionara TAF with Ti bucket from Verdampftnochmal for a friend and tried it only for two loads and i liked it,but that is very limited experience.Build quality is great,but in the comparison thread it was mentioned,it makes a bit of mess
. There is V4 also available and i started a comparison threads,so far people mention that it is better than the Saionara,but there is new version v5 comming which will address the issues of the v4 which was described as a little finnicky.
There is also mention of the Sequia which is better the two mentioned up above is avaiable only in UK as far as my EU search extended
I have found that the vaporization of isolates is not satisfying unless it is boosted with some terps and compared to sprincling it ontop of your herb.
I use just a little on top of my bowl on my DIY logvapes, which i use with water filtration,but i can imagine it really get messy if you put it in bowls that are not easily cleanable or removeable .I have a friend who uses some with Air 2 ,but i have yet to get feedback on how messy it actually is.

i dont like vapes with 510 mods
what ybout Linx Vapes or Utilian 5?

I'm not sure about Linx or Utilian, but I can tell you that the Divine Trive v4 (and v5) aren't "vapes" in the same way as dry herb 510 vapes. They use the power from batteries to heat crucibles to dabbing temperatures. I don't care for 510 dry herb vapes either, but I have to say concentrates is a different beast. It's easier to clean than any flower vape I have (other than the Sticky Brick), reliable (if at first a bit difficult to figure out), and produces excellent vapor (and flavor if you can get resins or rosins).

Like yourself, I've use a lot of CBD (concentrates and flower) and not found any dry herb vapes that work great. Of the options I've tried (if you're just deadset against 510 mods), DynaVaps with the concentrate coil and Sticky Brick with the concentrate pads both work pretty well. One of the nice thing about Sticky Bricks (if you don't mind using a torch) is that they don't really clog up at all in my experience. They have wide open airflow and nothing but a screen to get clogged. I have a proper enail setup (banger and coil from 710 and controller from Disorderly Conduction) and the DTv4 for portable use, and both are far, far superior to any dry herb vape I've tried.

I bought from cbd-brothers very good quality crystals.
I notice a significantly stronger effect of the THC when i add cbd to my weed or vape it afterwards.
I wouldn't have thought it possible either. Without terpenes in the crystals.
Even when i vaporize the crystals alone i feel a strong effect.

I have a linx, barely ever use it: short vapor path, hard to clean. I've never vaped CBD crystals, but vape wax (and similar concentrates) and different types of hash in my mighty all the time and am very happy with its performance. it's not the right vape for someone looking for huge rips like you get from a banger or mod-based devices, but if you're okay with a more relaxed 'session' vape experience, it could work for you. I usually put .05 - .08g of wax on top of the liquid pad, start getting vapor @ ~180ºC, get ~15 hits from that amount.

If when you say "portable" you mean "easy to move from place to place" I would go with the incredibly easy to use and integrated Rio Stache.

If you mean "fits in my pocket" I really love the Xmax Qomo, especially since they now have a quartz atomizer.

BTW, both can be run dry. Personal preference and neither overly harsh dry.

I vote the Qomo for portable (Terp Pen from Boundless for extra sneaky), Puffco Peak Pro for cordless and DNail SiC Halo for corded concentrate use.
The Xmax Ace also has a High temp concentrate mode that is the best dry herb vape I have used for concentrates.

I think there are probably better options than the Pro especially at that price. I'd personally go with an IH rig over these around that price point (Switch, Wand, Daab).

As for a pen option, the knock on those is that they can be a pain to clean. And like atty-based rigs like Pro (or Qomo), be prepared to factor in cost of needing to replace coils or atomizers.

because of the language and i am new in this kind of vaporizer i dont understand what is an IH rig ? Do you have an link ? but i have to look if it is available in europe. - the meaning of the 2 words switch and wand i do not understand too. Sorry. The rest i understand ;) LOL

ok i understand. thanks for the info
-
for now i would order the StoneSmiths' Slash Dab Pen at monday. But if you say it is difficult to clean i maybe stick to the Tafee if i vape cbd crystals if i can't find a better solution.

Thx for your help :)
