If you are in the market to buy a vape pen, things can get confusing due to the amount of options to choose from. This article is here to simplify vaporizer pens and help you decide which one suits your needs best.
Vape Pens That Can Vaporize Dry Herb:
One thing you must know before proceeding is that most vaporizer pens only work with full melt concentrates as of now and will not vaporize dry herb. No matter what the manufacturer claims, the majority of dry herb pens exceed the vaporization point of 455 degrees Fahrenheit.
However, there are a few exceptions to this.
The V2 Pro Series 3 is one of these exceptions, and it was the first pen that could actually vape dry herbs. We have been using this pen for our dry herbs ever since its release, and we are super excited about this product. It actually does what it promises, unlike all the others that say they can do herbs but really can’t.
If you want a legit vape pen that can do your herbs as well as e-liquids and concentrates, I highly encourage you to check out our review of the V2 Pro Series 3 here and see if it fits what you’re looking for (or, click here if you want to buy it and you will be taken to V2’s website where you can pick it up).
Otherwise, if you’re interested in a vaporizer pen for your wax/oils, keep reading to learn all about them and find out which unit is best for you.
You have 2 options when it comes to buying a vaporizer pen:
- You can buy a pre-built pen that comes with all the necessary parts (easiest and what most people prefer)
- Or you can build one yourself by buying all of the individual parts (this is usually cheaper, but requires a little bit of knowledge so you know what to buy.)
In this guide, we will only be covering the pre-built pens since that is what the majority of people are looking for.
For those that want to build their own pen, we have a separate guide for that.
At the moment, there are 2 pens on the market that stand head and shoulders above the rest. We used to have a longer list, but as of right now, these 2 are our absolute favorites, and we recommend either one very highly.
Our favorite pre-built vaporizer pens are:
1. The Galaxy Vape Pen by Kandypens- $99.99 from Kandypens (Use promo code ‘GALAXYLOVE’ and get 20% off your purchase)
The Galaxy by Kandypens with the quartz coils may be their best product to date. It does exactly what it’s made to do (and it does it very well), and with the promo code, it comes in at a very reasonable price.
The battery has three voltage settings, which you change by simply clicking the button. The atomizer itself is really high quality, utilizing quartz for the chamber and the rods in the coils as well.
This quartz design allows for the purest and cleanest tasting vapor out of any pen on the market, and if you’re used to more standard atomizers, the purity of the flavor you get from the Galaxy will blow you away.
Not only that, but you can get some pretty massive hits from the Galaxy as well.
If you’re just looking for the best of the best, grab the Galaxy. No questions asked. We’re huge fans of this vaporizer pen.

2. The SOURCE Orb V3 Vape Pen – $79.95 or $129.95 from Source’s official website* (use coupon code ‘moon’ and get 10% off)
*Depending on if you go with the Premium Kit or the Signature Kit (more info on these below)
The SOURCE Orb V2 was an amazing vaporizer pen and used to be our top ranked unit, but Source stepped it up even further and just released their new V3 model, which we love even more.
The main difference with the Source Orb V3 compared to the V2 are the new Quartz atomizers, which deliver the best flavor of any atomizer on the market (similar to the Galaxy above).
If the improved taste wasn’t enough, they even made the bowls 20% deeper and capable of holding twice as much material as the previous V2 atomizers.
The V3 comes in 2 different kits: Premium and Signature
The Premium kit, which goes for only $79.95 on Source’s website, comes with 7 different atomizers including 2 brand new Quartz atomizers, a variable voltage battery, a large eGo charger, dabbing tool, and several attachments.
The Signature kit, which sells for just $129.95 on Source’s website, comes with everything in the Premium kit, but adds 1 more Quartz atomizer (the terra), the Source Slim (a thinner version of the V3), a glass globe, and a cool little metal briefcase to carry everything in.
The 8 completely different atomizers allow you to customize your vape experience exactly how you want it to be, which is one of our favorite things about this pen.
The different atomizers that the V3 comes with are:
- 1x SOURCE orb 3 Quartz Single Coil atomizer
- 1x SOURCE orb 3 Quartz Double Coil atomizer
- 1x SOURCE orb 3 Ceramic Double Coil atomizer
- 1x SOURCE orb 3 Wicked Double Coil atomizer
- 1x SOURCE orb 3 Dry Herb Baker atomizer
- 1x SOURCE orb 3 Dry Herb Hitter atomizer
- 1x SOURCE terra Ceramic Donut atomizer
- 1x Quartz SOURCE terra Ceramic Donut atomizer (only available in the Signature Kit)
The Orb is dead simple to use. Basically, all you do is turn the battery on by clicking the button 5 times, then set the dial at the bottom to whatever voltage you want (higher = warmer vapor/faster vaporization, lower = cooler vapor/slower vaporization).
After that, just pick your atomizer, screw it into the orb, attach the orb to your battery, and load it up. Then, all you have to do is press the button and inhale.
Overall, this is an awesome vape pen at a very affordable price that any vaper should have.

Which Vape Pen is the Best?
This is a bit subjective as it depends on the user, but we have them ranked above in order of our preference. We personally love both pens, but each one will appeal to a different user.
The Galaxy has the smallest size and offers amazingly clean vapor thanks to the quartz chamber. It’s also variable voltage, and is just a great all around vape experience. If you want a simple to use pen with some of the purest flavor on the market, buy the Galaxy.
The Orb offers a ton of options for vaping concentrates, letting you control how hot you want to vape as well as which of 7 atomizers you want to use. It also uses the new Quartz atomizer design, just like the Galaxy, so you’re getting great flavor with either one.
If you like the flexibility that comes with having 7 atomizers, go with the SOURCE Orb. The Orb is perfect for the user who likes to experiment a bit and play around with a bunch of different atomizers. If you don’t care about that though and just want something simple with amazing flavor, just get the Galaxy.
