Top 5 Desktop Vaporizers of 2022

Well here it is, the top 5 desktop vaporizers chosen via a combination of reviews, speaking personally with customers who own desktop vapes AND our reliable staff vaporizer enthusiasts that help our customer in choosing the vape of their needs. Check out the top 5 desktop vapes below.

Desktop vaporizers were some of the first vaporizers in the game, for instance the volcano has been around for 20 years! We have compared our rating to some of the top leading stores and all have the same results, no matter where you go you will see the same top desktop vaporizers across the board.

The desktop vaporizers are for those of you who like to vape in the comfort of your own home, appreciate more powerful, and a more reliable unit. Because they are larger vaporizers they can offer better airflow and larger packed bowls, which can ultimately lead to larger vapor clouds, better flavor, and smoother vapor.

The Top 5 vaporizers that we have listed are subject to change based on personal preference. We want to give you a run down of what we have picked and why we believe that they are the best desktop vaporizers on the market today.


1. Volcano Hybrid

Of course the volcano is on this list. Brought to you by Storz & Bickel the ones who created the first ever desktop vaporizer with the volcano classic back in 2000. The volcano hybrid is an upgraded version of the original volcano, now with more precise temperature settings, hybrid heating, milkier vapor, and a whip! The volcano hybrid heats up extremely quickly, taking only a couple minutes to reach a maximum temperature of 446F. The Hybrid allows you full control of your vape session through their APP if you have an Android, if not do not worry they have also created a Web APP. If you appreciate flavorful consistent vapor the Volcano is for you. It is a reliable vaporizer that can last years of use.

2. Dr. Dabber Switch

The Switch is the only desktop vaporizer that Dr. Dabber has created. It can be used for both dry herb and concentrates, but is better with wax and concentrates. It is an e-nail and a desktop vaporizer all in one. The switch is extremely easy to use as everything is done with a push of a single button. You will be surprised to hear that there are 25 heat settings ranging from 300F - 800F and no matter which one you are on it will heat up in a mere 4 seconds using induction heating. With a 20 hour battery life it is sure to last you a few days on a single charge. Not only does it charge in about an hour there is also pass through technology making this vaporizer available to you whenever you need it. Although this device is in the desktop category it is completely portable as it does not need to be plugged in to use, but it is pretty big so I wouldn't recommend taking it everywhere.


Great as a top-shelf dab rig

Easy to grip and hold

Huge battery life


Not the best for dry herb

Learning curve

No visual interface

close call

3. Plenty Vaporizer

One more from Storz & Bickel! The plenty is a handheld desktop vaporizer with the same quality of the volcano but now in the palm of your hand. It is a unique vaporizer when it comes to shape as it looks more like something that belongs in the garage as a power tool. The Plenty uses convection heating so the heat source is not in direct contact with your herb and takes roughly 3 minutes to heat up. The Plenty uses a stainless steel cooling coil that allows the vapor to cool down before reaching your mouth for optimal flavor. There are no precise temperature settings as you set the temperature with a dial labeled 1-7. The Plenty can be used with either dry herbs or concentrates with the correct liquid pads. It is produced with a very large heating chamber, similar to the volcano, so prepare yourself for massive hits.


Very easy to use

Low draw resistance

Great taste


Takes a lot of herbs

Takes time to warm up

Constant handle pressing required

4. Extreme Q Vaporizer

The Arizer Extreme Q is probably one of the cheapest if not the cheapest desktop vaporizer you can get your hands on. Don’t let the price fool you though, it still has great flavor and light and fluffy vapor clouds. It comes equipped with a full LED display on the front of the machine as well as a remote operating system with added benefits like the lights and allows you to turn on your vaporizer from across the room. It has temperatures from 122F-500F which gives a lot of variance between your likings, also coming with a whip and balloon so you can pick your favorite way to vape. It does use convection heating so it also takes some time for your vaporizer to heat up, but ensures that your herb is heated evenly. The Extreme Q is an easy to use reliable desktop vaporizer where you get a lot of bang for your buck.


Lifetime warranty

Affordable, great value

Whip and bag options


No valve on the balloon

No milky clouds

Glass parts need constant cleaning


5. Volcano Classic Vaporizer

A premium desktop vaporizer with unbeatable vapor quality and astounding longevity, the Volcano Classic has few peers. It’s definitely not portable (weighing in at nearly 4 pounds), but aside from that it ticks every box a vaper could want. With its intuitive temperature controls and the balloon vaping systems—more on that later—the Volcano Classic is the pro’s pick for incredible sessions whether you’re alone or with a group of friends.


Effective Temperature Control

Balloon Delivery System

Clean and Tasty vapor



No Bluetooth

Moderate Vapor Production
