As with phones, drones and other technologies, vaporizers have gone beyond their initial functionality to offer all sorts of advanced features for the next generation of smoking devices.
Here, three great new vapes worth puffing right now. See you on the other side, bruh.
1. Pax 3 ($275)
With a battery twice as strong as its predecessor, the well-made Pax 3 delivers initial vapor in just 15 seconds and nearly instantly for subsequent drags. It smartly vibrates when ready to use, heats up as you bring it to your lips and automatically cools down when you set it down. Best of all, you can switch between loose leaf and extract as your heart, lungs (and mind?) desire.
2. V2 Vertx Plus ($90)
Packed with all sorts of technological advances, the Vertx Plus is the first e-cig with a touchscreen, which helps you adjust its voltage on-the-fly. The magnetically connected cartridges with high-capacity reservoir let you puff more and longer. Speaking of which, it offers long battery life, with a handy power indicator on the side telling you how much juice it's got left.
3. Haze V3 (bundles starting at $261)
Dual chambers and interchangeable canisters mean you can pre-pack a combination of dry herb, oil, wax and liquids. Replaceable batteries, choosing between vaping types (convection or conduction) and an adjustable mouthpiece are just a few of the features that make this portable vaporizer the most versatile out there.
