These are the current Leaders – Latest box mod rating September 2017
SMOK Stick V8
Highest rated Vape Pens for liquids, herb and waxes in 2017
Vaporizer pens, like are exactly what they sound. Pen sized and pen-shaped vaping devices. Just after the cig-a-like’s became poplular the next big thing were the vapor pens. These vape pen mods could produce way more smoke, could be easily filled and charged. Former e-cig fans abandoned their analog looking devices for the newer high tech Vape pens. These have bigger batteries to produce more vapor for more hours.
Most vape pens consist out of two main parts. The battery and a tank system which screws on top. Inside the tank you will find a heating element (coil). For every kind of vape pen there is a different kind of heating element. Dab pens or wax pens need different temperatures to produce vapor than dry herb or e-liquid vape pens.
Our goal on this page is to showcase the best vape pens we have seen so far. Most of the devices are 2017 models while some might be 1 or 2 years older. This does not make them inferrior to the others. We tried three different kinds of vape pens. First we showcase the best vaporizer pen for e-juices. Than we listed some of the highest quality wax vape pens which are worth taking a look at. And last but not least we have the vape pens for dry herb.
All in one vapes are those odd looking box mods with an integrated tank. These mods are perfectly tuned for a great vaping experience. The best thing about all in ones is that you don’t need to worry about getting the right tank. The system always works! These are the all in one devices we found best this year.

What is a vape pen or vaporizer pen?
A vape pen or a vaporizer pen is a small and portable device used to vaporize e-liquids, dry herb or wax and concentrates. Its name comes from the fact that it greatly resembles a standard pen. These devices are usually powered by an internal battery and come with their own atomizer attached.
What are the main differences Between wax, liquid and herb vape pens?
Some vape pens are specifically built to work with e-liquids. Others are built to work with dry herb and some are used for waxes and concentrates only. The main difference between them is their operating mode. E-liquid vape pens are very similar in functionality to box mods and they deliver a specific amount of power then the button is pressed. Dry herb and wax vaporizers require the chamber to heat up for a couple of seconds before use and that’s why power from the battery is delivered differently.
What are The different TYPES OF VAPE PENS?
- E-liquid vape pen: These devices are smaller and more portable than vape mods and this is why they are so popular. They can easily fit any pocket or purse and they deliver the same great vapor with every puff. The tank is attached to the battery via a 510 connector and they usually feature single button operation. More advanced varieties have temperature control or select-able power output.
- Herb vape pen: Dry herb vaporizers include a built in chamber made from ceramic or various metal alloys and they work through conduction. Current from the battery heats up the coil and this helps the oils inside the loose leaf material to get vaporized instead of burnt. Depending on model the heat up time ranges from 5 – 20s.
- Oils / Wax / Concentrates vaporizer pen: Wax pens are rather similar to dry herb devices but the chamber and resistance are built differently in order to accommodate a smaller quantity of material. They also require a few seconds heat up time before reaching the optimum temperature. Since the operating mode is similar they can also work with oils and concentrates without any extra enhancement.
- Multi usage pens: 3 in 1 vaporizers pens are some of the most versatile products on the market. They work with e-liquid, dry herb and wax / concentrates and the user only has to swap atomizers or chambers. Since the process is different, the user has to select between operating modes or the pen detects it automatically.
