Our highly anticipated best vape pens 2017 list is finally ready. We’ve selected top devices ranked according to performance and general feedback from our readers. These small personal vaporizers are usually easy to use and affordable however there are some key aspects which define their functionality. From battery life to the type of coil used, these are intended for different types of users and vaping styles. This is why we only picked seven top vaporizer pens and grouped them according to user relevant criteria. We will continue to update the list as we stumble upon devices which deserve the credit.
Cheap vape pens are usually great for beginners making the switch from tobacco cigarettes or rudimentary cig-a-likes. However these don’t offer the performance and vapor quality as top of the line products. Powerful batteries, sub ohm coils and even temperature control features stand between entry level vape pens and real pocket friendly cloud machines. Great flavor, outstanding vapor production and a complete set of accessories earned these devices a place in our top.

We included durability over time, price to quality ratios and the feedback from multiple readers to assess the key aspects of these products. So rest assured, we ended up with a list that includes only the best vape pens money can buy.
