After considering 35 vaporizers, testing 13, interviewing expert reviewers, digging through enthusiast forums, and using several models for more than a year, the Grenco Science G Pen Elite is the best portable vaporizer for most people. It delivers key features we wanted in a portable vaporizer—foremost, vapor quality good enough that you’d never think of smoking instead—along with a reasonable price, good battery life, convenient charging, smooth draws, and quick heat-up times.

Based on isolated reader feedback, we’ve added some concerns about the warranty and customer support to the Flaws but not dealbreakers section of our top pick, G Pen Elite. If the problems persist or become more widespread, we may change our pick, but for now we still think its simplicity, design, and quality make it the best choice for most people.
