The Evolve size and shape are quite standard, and you will find many other devices with the same size or shape. However, it is small enough almost to be completely covered by the hand. If you are into stealth vaping, this device is just small enough to get that niche job done.
Yocan Evolve: Build Quality
The device is put together quite well, and it feels rigid and strong with a metal-based quality to it. Also, it comes equipped with an atomizer splash guard – it really helps control any splatter. The inclusion of backup atomizer is nice and should have your vaping needs covered for a few months.
What do you get with the Evolve?
The box is practical, flat, made of thicker paper (so more solid) and comes with the following content:
- 1x Atomizer
- 1x 650mah Battery
- 1x Extra quartz dual coil
- 1x Wax tool
- 1x USB line
The Experience of Using Yocan Evolve Wax Pen
Start with unscrewing the Yocan Evolve mouthpiece, to access to the atomizer then unscrew the atomizer cap to see the heating chamber. The pieces come off easily. Use the loading dab tool to load the wax directly to the heating coils and try not to touch the coils with the metal tool to avoid damaging them.
Put the mouthpiece back. It is easy and takes no time. Just like most wax pens out there, press the power button five times to switch the device on. Then press again, hold the button and start drawing at the same time from the mouthpiece.
The Evolve heats the coils until you release the button because it does not have any temperature control settings. Moreover, the device will automatically stop heating after 10 seconds, in order to preserve battery life.
The Evolve Battery
The 650mah battery is standard in most wax pens and has a fairly average battery life compared to other similar devices.
Frequent users would probably have to charge the battery once a day. The other ones will probably be able to get a good few days without charging. However, the Yocan Evolve requires detaching the battery from the device body, in order to charge. So you will not be able to use the pen while charging.
Evolve VS. (R)Evolve
(R)Evolve, the newest version of the Evolve, is sleek and discreet, the device comes in a customized box, light and easy to carry in your bag or purse. Simple to use, it might take a bit of time to clean – especially the first times – and to recharge given its larger capacity.
However, one thing stands out with the Yocan (R)Evolve pen: its ability to regulate low temperatures, and still produce a tasty vapor with thick clouds throughout each session.
Yocan Evolve vs. the Atmos Kiln RA vs. the Mig Vapor WASP
The Atmos Kiln RA
The Atmos Kiln RA has a similar form factor to the Yocan Evolve, with its stout, stubby body. Both devices measure around the same with the Evolve being 4.7 inches long and the Kiln at around 4.12 inches.
The Kiln has only an all-ceramic heating chamber and disc element, while the Yocan Evolve uses both a dual-quartz and ceramic disc atomizer. The Evolve is much cheaper compared with the Kiln, but they both produce vapor very well.
The Mig Vapor WASP
The WASP has a slimmer, more compact design than either the Evolve or the Kiln, making it the more portable of the three. The battery on the WASP is 900mAh, so it is less than the Kiln’s 950mAh battery but bigger than the Evolve’s powerful 650mAh cell.
The WASP does not have a ceramic heating element while the Evolve’s dual quartz coils work well for heating the wax to produce clean and pure vapor.
Yocan Evolve would be the perfect fit for the beginners. However, it has been designed to remain simple and easy to use, for low budgets. Overall, it does not require much knowledge or maintenance, and it is easy to use with its simplified options and unique button. It does the job and offers a decent vapor. One thing for sure: it will not be a wasted investment
