Titan 2 Vaporizer

#10 Titan 2


Overview:

The Titan 2 is our most affordable portable dry herb vaporizer on this list. It still features temperature control to the degree and good battery life. For many users, it provides good enough flavor, but it isn’t as clean as the other vapes on this list. Instead of glass or ceramic chambers found in the other vapes on this list, the Titan 2 has a metal chamber which can affect the flavor of the vapor. It has decent build-quality, but the components in the Titan 2 are not as high-quality as more expensive dry herb vaporizers. In summary, the Titan 2 is a solid starter vape and is an excellent value for those looking to buy their first dry herb vaporizer without breaking the bank.


Pros:

  • Excellent value
  • Large chamber (about 0.5 gram)
  • Budget-friendly
  • Full temperature control
  • Digital display
  • Lightweight

Cons:

  • Metal chamber can affect flavor
  • Decent build quality


Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 1.0" W x 5.4" H x 1.0" D
  • Weight:  3.3oz
  • Heat-up Time:  60 seconds (to 375° F)
