Our First go at the (R)Evolve
We found getting everything to be simple, just unscrew the atomizer cap off the chamber and load your (R)Evolve with enough concentrates for your session. The device has a large chamber; however, it is best not to overfill it. Then screw the cap back.
Click the button five times and let the light blink three times. Then hold the button to start heating and start drawing. The device will heat up at 4.2V for the first 4 seconds, before decreasing to 3.2V for the next 6 seconds until it reaches 10 seconds, which will activate the chamber automatic cooling off. Click the button another five times to switch the pen off, and you will see the light blinking three times again, which indicates that the device is powering down.
Pretty simple nothing out of the ordinary, some more common features would have been nice to see like micro USB charging or something to really get us excited. However, we were overall happy with our first time with the (R)Evolve and its simplicity.
Strength is in the Vapor!
An important aspect of vaping is the vapor quality, and the (R)Evolve has it. This device ideally regulates the heat to deliver low temperatures, which guarantees a maximized transfer of flavor. The atomizer is made of quartz dual coil material (instead of ceramics) and heats up instantly, to produce thick vapor clouds.
We thoroughly enjoyed the vapor flavor produced by the (R)Evolve. Using it was extremely simple and taking a puff up to 7-8 seconds long was more than enough for us. This little device was sure a surprise.
Managing the Yocan (R)Evolve
(R)Evolve Battery Capacity and Charging
With its 650 mAh, the Yocan (R)Evolve offers a decent battery capacity for its size. You can not really expect much in the way of battery with this type of device though. The awkward charging setup also degrades from the overall experience. Having to remove basically everything just to be able to hook up the USB charger is a slight pain. However, once you have it all hooked up, it only takes about an hour and a half to charge, and should last anywhere up to 4-5 hours or 350-450 puffs depending on use.
Maintenance on the (R)Evolve
Simply use isopropyl alcohol on any areas, and replace the atomizer coils when required. Depending on the use, they have an average lifespan of about six months. Note that the whole device is made of five removable parts, which could be a hassle to unscrew and screw back again.
Comparing it to Others
Besides a strong contender like the Zeus Thunder 2, the Yocan (R)Evolve does not stand a chance but has strong arguments to fight back. We looked into it.
The Thunder 2 will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of concentrates fully but comes a little more pricey. The (R)Evolve has slightly more options, but overall the Thunder 2 offers better combinations of vapor flavor and build quality. Despite its low temp heating feature and quartz dual coil atomizer, it cannot beat the Thunder 2 and its coilless ceramic. Ceramic heats more evenly to keep most (if not all) the flavor. A big asset.
Our Final Thoughts
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.
