The Best Vaporizers for Clouds 2023

We’re talking about the very best clouds from our lineup of dry herb vaporizers. Let’s get into it.

Last updated: December 7th, 2022
We are constantly looking for new and exciting products to add to our list of top choices. This page will continue to update and evolve as we discover and test more vaporizers.

We often emphasize quality, taste, and efficiency with our dry herb vaporizers, but what about just raw cloud production? Our choices here maintain the overall quality that we look for in a session, but do so with a cloudy finish every time. If you want the biggest vape clouds, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s get into it.

Best vapes for clouds: How we test

It’s pretty simple. We run each vaporizer through a session and, since we’re focused on clouds here, we set the temperature high. At least 390°F/198°C and above (or it’s highest preset temperature) for the best results. Are exhales greeted with a billowing cloud of vapor, or are they thin and wispy? Does it die down after a hit or is it consistent throughout the session? Bonus points if it keeps up with a full inhale.

With that being said, every vape on this list passed with flying colors and cloudy exhales.

Best vapes for clouds: FAQs

Can I charge my vape with a phone charger?

Many of the portable vaping products we carry charge via micro-usb and plug into a power adapter, similar to the one you use with your phone. However, a lot of portables are transitioning to USB-C charging, so it depends on your vape as well as your phone.

What’s the best vaping temperature for large clouds?

400°F/198°C and above is the best for cloud chasers. This area creates the thickest clouds with no regard to taste or smoothness, but is potent and provides the strongest effects. The higher you go, the thicker the results.

What’s the best vape for beginners?

Many of our top vaporizers and vape pens are beginner friendly, aspire to be the best of the best, and are ideal for new vaporists. On top of reliable safety features, these vaporizers are easy to use, require little know-how, and deliver potent, quality hits with ease. Take a look at our Best Vapes for Beginners for the full rundown.
