The G Pro Herbal Vaporizer from Grenco is able to vaporize dry herbs, which is easy to use, portable, lightweight, has multiple temperature settings and it heats up pretty quickly.
The G Pro is mainly made from plastic. The body of the unit is plastic, which makes the unit a lot lighter and remains durable, but the mouthpiece uses a lot of plastic that could cause problems later on. The quality of the plastic though is very good as there are no rough edges or parts that don’t fit well together.
The vapor that you get from the G Pro does have a plastic taste, which you will notice when you take draws. The heating chamber is also quite close to the mouthpiece so the vapor doesn’t have the room to cool down.
The unit is all black which helps with its discreetness. The flexibility of the temperature means that you can dial down the thickness of the vapor so that is less noticeable in public settings. The size of the unit also allows you to conceal it in your hand.
Ease of Use
This unit is really easy to use as there is just one button. The unit can be turned on and off by pressing the button 5 times. The temperature can be changed by pressing and holding the power button until the LED light changes color. There is a removable screen in the mouthpiece, which makes the loading and cleaning easy. The heating chamber is stainless steel so it can be easily cleaned.
The battery life is about an hour.
This is a good vaporizer and is perfect for those that are beginning their vaporizer journey.
Discreet Vape are the creators of the Puffit 2 portable vaporizer and looks like an inhaler.
The Puffit 2 is a discreet vape and whilst you will not get the best vapor, but it is great for when you want to vape in public.
The Puffit 2 works a little differently from other portable vaporizers as it heats up for one draw and then will turn off automatically. If you want another draw then you just turn it back on and then take another draw when it is heated.
The Puffit 2 is not intended for long sessions but just for a few quick draws. When the portable vaporizer is heating up it will vibrate and then when it is fully heated it will do a short double burst.
There are four heat settings on the Puffit 2 that range from 170 degrees Celsius and 220 degrees Celsius.
The chamber on the Puffit 2 will hold about 0.2 grams and if you pack it then you could get about 5 to 7 draws.
The battery on the Puffit 2 attaches to the chamber and is charged through a USB. You will get about 25 to 35 puffs on a single battery charge. It also takes over an hour to charge the battery.
The Puffit 2 is an affordable vaporizer that is good. It provides you with those quick draws that you want during the day and is discreet. Also it looks like a medical inhaler so its inconspicuous.
Silver Surfer Vaporizer Review
The Silver Surfer comes from the 7th Floor Company, which is from Colorado and is a great desktop vaporizer. 7th Floor is also responsible for the Life Saber and Da Buddha vape and the Silver Surfer vaporizer is a slightly more enhanced version of these.
Overall the Silver Surfer is a high quality unit that performs well. This desktop vaporizer is durable and it comes with a 3 year warranty on the electrical components.
The main feature of the Silver Surfer vaporizer is the vapor quality. You are able to dial in the best heat setting which will then give you a nice and potent vapor that is flavourful. The Silver Surfer uses a ceramic heating element and glass parts that help it to provide you with a nice clean flavor from your herbs.
As this desktop vaporizer has glass parts and a silicone whip you will need to clean this vape semi-regularly so that it looks like new, but the cleaning of the vaporizer is pretty easy as you will just need to use some rubbing alcohol.
Compared to other vaporizers the Silver Surfer vaporizer is probably built better than the Extreme Q vaporizer but in comparison to the Plenty vaporizer, the plenty is better in terms of ease of use, it produces an even stronger vapor and it also stays cleaner.
The Silver Surfer is easy to use and here is how it works:
- Firstly air is inhaled through a small hole in the glass heater cover
- The ceramic element heats the to the vaporizing temperature
- The heated air then passes through the Silver Surfer vaporizers glass heater cover and into the glass wand which is attached to the mouthpiece.
There are two main ways to use the Silver Surfer.
- You can turn the glass knob to full power for around 2 to 3 minutes and then turn the knob back down to about 1/3 power
- You can also turn the unit on and turn the knob to your preferred position which you will find after some practice and wait 3 to 5 minutes for the unit to reach this temperature.
If you are interested in buying the Silver Surfer from 7th Floor then it is advised to buy it from a fully authorized dealer as 7th Floor will not honour the warranty if it is bought somewhere else.

Firefly Portable Vaporizer Review
One of the nicest vaporizers is the Firefly Portable Vaporizer, but there are some downsides to the model. The Firefly is a quality household vape but some of the features make the Firefly not the best vaporizer to take out and about with you.
How the Firefly Works
The Firefly vaporizer uses a convection heating method that uses software that is able to raise the vapor temperature from 37 degrees Celsius to 205 degrees Celsius (100 °F to 400 °F) in a quick 10 seconds according to smokedoc.org.
The custom draws are perfect with the Firefly in that for a lighter vapor you will just need to draw for a shorter period of time. If you want a stronger draw then you just take a longer draw. As you are in complete control you can enjoy the perfect draw each and every time.
The Firefly bowl should not be packed to tightly as the firefly requires a packed bowl like that of a pipe and lighter unlike the Pax.
Loading and Cleaning the Firefly
In regards to the packing and the cleaning of the Firefly vaporizer it is easier than others but you will need to clean it regularly.
There is a wide mouth and inwardly sloped sides at the heating chamber which then makes the loading and unloading of ground aromatic blends much easier.
There is a magnetic lid that has an open vapor path which is fully exposed when the lid is removed. This allows the Firefly vaporizer to be quickly brushed clean or rinsed in the sink with cold water.
One charge of the Firefly battery will give you about 45 minutes of use or 40 draws, but the battery does increase the weight of the unit. However, the battery is interchangeable so you are able to get other batteries for the unit instead of having to charge it all the time. You will be able to get through a day with just two batteries.
The Firefly vaporizer is built solidly but it is heavy.
What You Get
The Firefly vaporizer comes with:
- The Firefly Vaporizer
- Cleaning kit
- High powered rechargeable Lithium-ion battery
- AC Adapter
- User manual and
- Soft case.
