How the Product Works
You start by loading the pen up. To do this, the mouthpiece has to be twisted in order to unlock it and remove it so that atomizer can be exposed. Then, you unscrew the coil, which in turn exposes the heating chamber. You can then proceed to fill it with your preferred concentrates.
We suggest that you place the concentrates directly on the coils while taking care not to hit the coils with the tool as this can destroy them. After you are done with the loading, you can then gently place the coil cap back on and screw it in place and doing the same for the mouthpiece.
Now all you have to do is turn on the pen and draw. Turning on requires you to power press on the button five times in quick succession. You will know that the device is on when the light surrounding the button illuminates. Now you can go ahead and draw as you power press the button.
The Yocan Evolve Plus wax pen looks and feels sturdy when in your hands. And it proved its quality over the testing period as we observed no issues. The standout quality of the pen is the coil cap which has been designed in the mold of a carb cap found on the traditional rig.
This ingenious design not only sets Yocan pens apart from those of other manufacturers but also ensures the ambient temperature next to the coils remains hot, facilitating an efficient vaporization process.
The additional advantage offered by the pen is that it prevents any form of splatter happening. The overall build of the product indicates quality construction, especially given the price of the pen.
Vapor and Flavor Quality
The vapor you get from Evolve Plus is high quality, which we expected thanks to its use of the powerful dual coil atomizer. However, this design is not exclusive to Yocan pens as several other pens from different manufacturers use it, especially the ones from Kandypens Galaxy. Still, it is well set up as expected.
When it comes to vapor quality, the verdict is decent. Even then, it is dependent on how you manually manage to control the coils’ temperature in a method we shall discuss below.
If you don’t do this and instead just press then hold it, you will get harsh and sharp draws, and towards the end, you start getting a burnt taste.
The one major letdown of the pen is its lack of any temperature control feature. In the broader scheme of things, this seems to be an issue Yocan does not consider significant since the several pens from the manufacturer we have reviewed all lack of temperature control ability.
With no feature for temperature control, the only option you have is to manually do it by pulsing on the power button instead of continuously holding it down as you draw. You achieve this by holding the button power for three seconds and releasing it for one second.
Then hold it down for another two seconds before releasing it and repeating the rhythm. It is the only option that you will manage to keep the temperature even and prevent the coils from overheating.
Because of its shape and size which resembles more of a marker than a pen, the product is capable of carrying a 1100mAh battery. This capacity is way higher than the regular 650 mAh battery that most vape pens use.
With almost double the power, you can get the Yogen Plus wax pen product to get you more draws on a single charge.
Our tests show that on moderate use, that single charge can go for a couple of days before it is depleted. The pen uses a micro USB for charging, so you can charge it even when the pen is out.
While it is larger than your average vaping pen, the Evolve Plus still slides easily in your pocket or a small bag making it easy to carry around. To further aid you, especially when moving with your concentrates, the pen comes with a silicone wax container. And its large battery means you can be out with it for a couple of days.
Ease of Use
The product also scores highly in this field with only one power button and fixed temperature. You only need to press more on the power button five times to put it on and then another five to turn it off. Then you press and then hold the power button as earlier discussed to draw the vapor.
If discreetness is ever an issue, the similar shape and design of the pen to e-liquid vape pens will offer the perfect disguise. Furthermore, the small size means you can always slip it easily in the pocket.
The all-around verdict we have for the Yocan Evolve Plus Wax Pen product is that it is a competent wax vaping pen for starters. Its low learning curve makes it easy to use. The high-capacity battery, great coil cap design, and storage bag are great perks for its price.
