As time goes by, technology has become more advanced. Simultaneously, our technological gadgets have been shrinking in size to make them more convenient to use. Vaporizers are no exception to this, having evolved from larger, clunkier models, to tiny gadgets that easily fit in your pocket or can hide in your hand, if you want to be discreet.
The O.pen Vape is by far one of the smallest vape pens available on the market today. Ever since it became available, I have been excited to finally get one and try it out for myself. One of the best parts of this product is the Fill it Yourself Kit, which is a pretty innovative and unique concept that lets you mix your own oil solutions to use in the vaporizer.
This comprehensive review, which was written based on my personal experience using the device and all its awesome accessories, covers every aspect of the product so that you’ll be confident when choosing the best vaporizer for you!
What Is It?
The O.Pen Vape is quite similar to a regular pencil or writing pen and only approximately double the weight. The bottom of the device has a battery which attaches to the cartomizer. It is compatible with disposable, plastic cartridges that run for about $30 a piece and come already filled with oil containing cannabis.
Due to this, you can unfortunately only buy the O.Pen Vape cartridges in cannabis-friendly states. This flagship product from the company ranges in price from $20-$25, making it a pretty great deal, especially considering the kit that comes with the pen, and all the great accessories it contains, making it possible for you to mix your own oil at an incredibly reasonable cost!
Personally, I absolutely love the design of this vape device. It is extremely light in weight, thin and smooth to the touch. It easily fits in the palm of your hand and has a very sleek and elegant design. However, it is very long for a vape pen, measuring up to about six inches. That may be less than ideal for some people who like to be discreet with their vaping habits and want the ability to completely conceal the device in their hand while they inhale.
It does fit perfectly into a coat, pant, or shirt pocket, making it ideal for a life on the go. It comes with a box which has separate compartments where you can store all of the accessories that come included in the kit. You can also use the lid of the box, often called a “honey pot,” to mix your vape oil. This makes it very easy to keep everything organized and stowed away in order to avoid losing any of the small pieces that belong to the kit.
The box seals securely, helping to avoid any of the liquid from spilling out, which can cause a huge mess. Not to mention, a leaking vaporizer left in extreme temperatures, such as inside your car, can potentially be detrimental, or even lethal to your device.
The cylinder-shaped packaging the device comes in will help to not only protect your vaporizer but will help to ensure if it does begin to leak due to being left in extreme temperatures, it will not cause a mess!
The O.Pen vape also has a feature which will automatically cut off the battery’s power after eight seconds. This will help to avoid overheating the device and will prevent it from becoming damaged as a result.
Various types of hash oils are available for purchase in syringes at dispensaries. Simply heat the oil, then fill up a cartridge! This device can be used for vaping non-liquid concentrates as well. Just mix the polyethylene glycol into the concentrate and get it to the right consistency, then you’re ready to start vaping!
Despite the variety of options available, some vapers have complained that it takes too long to get the right consistency and ensure that the concentrate you are using is homogeneous and unvaried.
Due to this, the cartridge system featured on the O.Vape can be very restrictive in its ease of use. Some people have also complained of a “chemically” taste to some of the oils that come in the preloaded cartridges.
The battery which is built into the pen will come uncharged when you purchase it, so it will require a change it before using your new vaping device. The battery charges with a USB cord. A light located on the tip will turn from red to green when it is fully charged.
It takes around 3-4 hours to get a full charge, which is quite a while to have to wait. And it’s something many users have complained about time and time again. However, once it reaches a full charge, the pen can potentially last for up to a week, even with daily use, before the battery becomes drained.
This device is very easy to use. There are no buttons you have to press to receive a hit, just draw in air as though you were sucking through a straw and the device will automatically heat up, making this product fool-proof! It is simple to conceal from view and great to use on the go!
The brand keeps avenues of communication open with its retailers and ensures they are very knowledgable in the brand’s products and features. It certainly comes in handy to have the opportunity to ask knowledgable distributors about certain products before making a purchase.
They also encourage retailers to collaborate with the company so they can get a better idea of their potential customers needs and concerns. The company even regulates the prices retailers charge for their products, so you can be sure users are not going to be paying an outrageously high amount.
O.pen Vape even offers warranties on all of their products. Something that is far too rare among vaping companies, especially when it comes to vaping pens. Vaping pens can be very a low-budget option in theory. But often, the ease with which they break, and the rate at which you have to shell out money for new ones will end up costing you far more than anticipated in the long run.
Unfortunately, while the company claims to have an excellent customer service team, this is something many O.Pen Vape users disagree with. It seems on many occasions, the company has disappointed many customers by falling through on their promises, which leaves many people questioning the company’s overall credibility.
