Vaping herbal concentrates can be done in a few different ways, some a little more portable than others. A portable wax vaporiser is a handy unit to own enabling you to vape at your convenience. Discretion and ease of use are 2 points that I try to factor in when deciding on a vape to take out and about. Yocan is a massive vape brand based in Shenzhen, China and they make a wide variety of quite affordable (yet advanced) herbal vaporisers. The Evolve Plus XL has been around for a while now (they have sold well in store) and this is the latest upgraded 2020 version.
The Evolve Plus XL is considered to be an all-in-one concentrates vaporiser, providing you all that you require (including storage) within the one slimline pen style device. Obviously, they don’t provide the herbal material, so maybe not an all-in-one!
Discreet due to its small profile whilst nice and weighty in your hand, the Evolve Plus XL is built to last. Don’t be fooled by its looks though, this unit is incredibly easy to use with just one button to get you vaping. As I am a real safety girl I personally love this unit as you effectively remove the dangers of dabbing since no blowtorch is required. Speaking of safety this device will turn itself off after 15 seconds of continuous firing. The Evolve Plus XL is powered by a strong 1400mAh internal battery allowing you to use it over and over and over again before a recharge is needed. The charging port is located at the back of the unit near the base. A red light near the port will illuminate whilst charging and go out when the unit is fully charged and ready to go.
The dome top cap/atomiser tube is magnetised and can be easily removed from the base by simply pulling upwards. Saving you time and less cleaning due to no more sticky threading. The top cap has also been specifically designed to direct the vapour upwards towards your mouth and prevents spit-backs. The adjustable airflow valve lets you customise and control the amount of vapor being inhaled to optimise your experience.
At the base of the Evolve you will find the hidden detachable, dual compartment silicone container to hold your favourite concentrate/s. This container can be easily removed for cleaning. Simply slip it into your pocket and off you go. Impressive huh? On the fun side this is the first vape pen that comes complete with a hanging ring and lanyard. Helping to keep your Evolve Plus safe and close at hand when needed. The hanging ring is a removable piece.
Measuring: 22mm diameter and 115mm in height
QUAD COIL TECHNOLOGY
This one of a kind vaporiser features unique QUAD Coil technology – using a 4 Quartz Rod Coil (0.4 ohm resistance). Made specifically for giant clouds and hits, which is hard to come by in a wax concentrate device. A coil cap sits in place above the coil helping to curtail any messy splashing that may occur. The Quartz rods allow for pure and clean vapour that sticks with the original scent and flavour of your concentrate. As a flavour girl yet another reason that I love this unit!
TIP: You can keep the coils clean by either doing a dry burn or soaking in Isopropyl alcohol. Allow to dry completely before use.
Dabbing requires high heat and in this case the heat is supplied via a high-quality battery (rechargeable) eliminating the need for you to apply intense levels of heat yourself. This is a major safety feature in my eyes, especially if you are new to vaping concentrates. Press the power button (fire button) for longer than 15 seconds and a further safety feature will kick in basically disabling the power. You will be able to continue using the unit straight after you let go of the button. A short circuit will be denoted by 3 flashes of the light and 10 flashes when the battery level is low.
Just above the fire/power button is the adjustable airflow-valve which allows you to customise the amount of vapour you wish to create. It slides nice and easily to either side. Open it up all the way if you want to create massive clouds and a bigger throat hit or close it to your specifications.
Before your first use of a wax vaporiser it is advisable to break in your new coils by pulsing the coil. Power the unit on (x5 quick pushes of fire button) then begin pulsing by holding down the fire button for a few seconds then letting go. You will see the coil start to glow slightly. Repeat this process until the coil glows evenly. Your coil is ready.
Once charged you are ready to load your concentrate. Simply pull up the magnetised top cap to reveal the heating chamber. You will then need to unscrew the coil cap to load. Use the included wax loading tool to place a small amount of your concentrate (carefully) directly onto the Quartz Coil. It is recommended that you use around 1-2 grains of rice in size. Placing too much wax into the chamber may result in overflow and will drive you crazy with the cleaning of it all!
Once loaded replace the chamber cap and magnetised top cap. X5 quick click of the power button will fire up this unit and also shut it down. Enjoy your session, you can thank me later!
