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.
Battery performance can make or break your vaping experience if you’re not using a desktop vaporizer. Nothing is worse than a session that's cut short because of a weak battery, so let’s jump into it and take a look at the best portable dry herb vaporizers for battery life.
Best vapes for battery life: How we test
One of the first things we test when we receive a new vaporizer is its battery life. To get the most consistent results, we keep it at a set, mid to high range temperature to mimic a traditional vaporizing session. And then we use it like we normally would and run enough sessions through it until the battery hits zero.

Best vapes for battery life: FAQs
What is the best vape battery?
If your vape has replaceable batteries, you can upgrade the power anytime you want. The best vape battery is the one that suits your specific needs. If you need a battery to power your higher temperature sessions with a fast heat up, look for one with higher amps. If you vape at lower temperatures and want a longer lasting battery, get a battery with a higher mAh rating.
Check out our full lineup of batteries and chargers.
How do I fix my vape battery not charging?
If your battery won’t charge, it might be time for a replacement, or you may have a faulty charger. Swap in another battery to make sure your charger works properly. If you bought your battery or charger from us, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you out.
Will any 18650 battery work with my vape?
All 18650 batteries that we carry will work with our 18650-powered vaporizer. Any of them will work, but as we mentioned before, what’s important is the amperage and mAh rating. Grab one that suits you and your specific needs. If you’re unsure, reach out to us and we’ll point you in the right direction.
There are only a few dry herb vaporizers that require button-top 18650 batteries. They are rare, and you most likely don’t have one. All of the batteries on Planet of the Vapes are flat-top batteries.
