The Evolve – D by Yocan is the latest evolution of their Evolve design. The original Evolve and the Evolve Plus are popular wax devices whilst the Evolve – D is a “vape burner” type of dry herb pen. What this means is that your dry herb is not vaporised but heated via combustion. Instead of producing vapour this device will create smoke (and odour so be careful if you are trying to be stealthy!). The Yocan Evolve-D vape pen is a leap in vaping technology, when compared to current offerings of combustion style pens. The air flow is quite impressive and really does produce decent clouds that will surprise most users.
Like most products made by Yocan this unit is made from stylish elegant chrome. Small, very portable and easy to use the Evolve -D is geared towards those of you who don’t want to spend a large amount of cash whilst still enjoying your favourite herb. The battery (650mAh) is an outer ego-thread style with inner 510 threading and will work with other devices with compatible threading. The voltage on this device is not variable.
An innovative mouthpiece doubles as a protective atomizer tube and features a tamping device for packing the herb chamber tightly. Simply push down the tamping device after loading the chamber to ensure a tight fit. The tamping device is also useful to help clean out any ash within the mouthpiece. The heating chamber on this unit is quite wide and deep. The power button is made of chrome as is the top tamping button all adding to the overall stylish design of this vape!
The Yocan Evolve-D vape features a pancake-style dual coil that heats more surface area than the average heating chamber, which usually features a heating rod instead of a flat, disc-shaped coil. The flatter, wider heating element touches more dry herb, making for even and thorough vaporisation. Yocan Evolve-D creates big, flavourful clouds in just seconds, perfect for on-the-fly vaping. The dry herb dual coil screws into the base piece, and is protected by the atomizer tube, which includes the tamping device for packing the atomizer properly. The coil is concentrated in the middle, so it will cook the herb from this point. The edges won’t cook as well, so this cleaning/tamping function in the mouthpiece is definitely handy for keeping the herb fresh through the session. Give tamps lightly as you don’t want to potentially bust the coils, but you can tamp it after every hit to get just a little bit more from each toke.
A strong 650mAh battery offers long lasting vaping sessions and big, milky clouds. Yocan Evolve-D heats at around 3.2v to 4.2v, the optimal temperature for extracting the best flavour and potency from dry herb (generating approximately between 1.3 and 3.0 ohms). An easy-to-operate single button control makes taking hits a breeze. Expect between 3 and 6 hours of vaping from a full charge. Charge up using the included USB cable, making it convenient to power up on-the-go.
To use: This is a very simple device, with no variable temperature and one button to power. 5 quick clicks turns it on and off. To load you need to turn the unit upside down and unscrew the battery. Holding the chamber (still upside down) you may now fill your chamber. Don’t pack it too tight as you still want a little air flow (will definitely affect airflow if too tight). Make sure to leave a small amount of room for the pancake atomiser. Screw the battery back on. You can now press down on the tamping button at the top of the atomiser tube to ensure a thorough conduction occurs within the heating chamber. Turn the unit on (5 clicks). A white light around the power button equates to a full charge. Flashing red denotes a dying battery – time to charge.
I strongly recommend cleaning all vaporisers regularly between uses. Unscrew the atomiser tube, coil and base from the battery. Use the included cleaning brush to remove all dry herb in the chamber. Remember to use the tamping button to release any ash or other debris. Don’t forget the filtration holes within the mouthpiece (atomiser tube). The holes are small but relatively easy to clean. If you have any issues getting the filtration holes clean you can use a very fine needle to push out any debris. Whilst unit is disassembled make sure to also wipe clean the battery connection between the base and the battery and anywhere else that resin may have found its way into. Insert and twist the dampened paper towel into the mouthpiece from the tamping button, repeat till the paper towel is no longer brown. Do the same for the heating chamber. Reassemble the base and the coil back on the device. Cleaning the pancake coil is as simple as a quick 3 second dry burn (power on then hold down the fire button for 3 seconds), you may need to repeat the dry burn depending on how much cleaning is needed. Allow the coil to cool then use the included nylon brush to gently scrub away any gunk.
