The EpicVape E-Nano is a plug-in vaporizer for dry herbs that uses a ceramic heater, convection heating, and an adjustable heating dial to vape its material. The E-Nano has a basic configuration consisting of the all-wood exterior (seven different wood grains), which has a short stature and the internal, stainless steel sheath that houses the ceramic heater.

The E-Nano vaporizer works with a stem made from glass (several sizes are available) where users load their material, giving them a pure, all-glass vapor path.

A Closer Look at the EpicVape E-Nano Vaporizer

The E-Nano vaporizer has a very simple configuration. It has no screen or adjustment buttons and it has no separate parts save for the glass stem attachment where users load their material to be vaped. The company offers three different stem sizes ranging from a standard short stem, a long-stem tube, and a fixed stem tube made from glass.

The other component of the E-Nano is the power cord that also doubles as the heating adjuster. Users plug one end into a wall socket, while the rest of the cable runs through an adjustable dial with numbered heating options ranging from 1 to 11. The exterior of the fry herb vaporizers consists of an untreated, all-natural wood grain that gives the device a feeling of durability while also being esthetically pleasing.

E-Nano EpicVape Design

The E-Nano is very discreet and it could easily be mistaken for a simple decorative object or a lamp rather than a dry herb, desktop vaporizer. There is a small LED indicator light at the base of the E-Nano that glows more intensely as a user increases the temperature.

The interior of the device is wide-open and no covering or lid goes on top. The heating element is encased in a central tube that is covered with a metallic screen so no herb falls into the heater. Users need to fit the stem over the heater, set their ideal temperature with the heating dial and simply inhale through the opposite end of the stem to create vapor.

What Comes with the E-Nano

The E-Nano, in keeping with its discreet, low-profile form factor, comes packaged in a white, nondescript cardboard box that has no branding or logos on it. The kit includes the main device with the AC power cord and your choice of stem that you choose when you purchase the product.

Build Quality and Design

The EpicVape E-Nano has a very simple configuration. The entire device consists of a single piece that users outfit with a stem made from glass that acts as the loading chamber and the mouthpiece. The device stands at just over 3.75” tall and only spans 2” wide, making it lightweight and portable (the kit includes a cinch-up plastic bag for transport).

There is no on/off switch on the device. Users need to plug in the power cord to the back-end of the device and then into a compatible wall socket. Activating the device then takes only adjusting the heat dial, which begins the heating process. The heat-up time depends on the level users select.

Instructions

With no power button or screen or adjustment buttons, using the E-Nano is as easy as following three steps. The first being plugging in the device. The second is loading material into the provided stem. The third step is placing the stem made from glass over the ceramic heater and then inhaling the vapor.

The ceramic heater does not even need a burn-off, as the company performs a pre-shipping burn-off at the factory so the device is ready to use right away. Loading the stem with the material is also easy. It works like other glass-stem devices like the Arizer Air, which also users a protruding stem made from glass.

Users can alternate between a fine grind for their material or a large nugget of material to place into the tube. The consistency depends on the stem they use, either the stainless steel fixed screen, the adjustable stainless steel screen, or the honeycomb design. With the adjustable stainless steel screen, users can move the screen to accommodate more or less material.

This is the reason the kit includes the E-Pick tool so users can measure how far down the screen should go, as being too close to the heater might lead to combustion. The E-Pick also works to stir the material mid-way through a session to ensure overall combustion.

Temperature Control

Adding to the simple usability of the E-Nano is the temperature control dial. There are two options available for the device: a simple, numbered dial attached to the power cord, or a wood-grain control box that comes with the same wood finish as the main device (it is a paid upgrade so it costs more).

The temperature dial runs from 1 to 11. It functions a lot like an adjustable lighting dial for a floor lamp or any other lighting device. The exact temperatures of the heating dial are unknown, but they are self-explanatory. The company recommends setting the dial above, at least, 6 or 8 for the right balance between flavor and cloud production. Users are, of course, free to experiment with the dial, which makes using the E-Nano very straightforward.

Performance

The E-Nano uses a pure vapor path so the vapor does not pass through any electronics or metal parts. The vapor comes straight through the tube and into a vaper’s mouth. The ease with which users can regulate the temperature also means they have a lot of versatility to fine-tune vapor quality.

The heat-up time for the higher temperatures is a little faster, between one or two minutes for the device to reach temperature. Users should set their temperature first, then let the heater get hot, while they are loading their material. Once the material is loaded, the heater should be ready and users need only place it over the heater.

The fast heat-up time gives off great clouds even with the first few draws. The path is direct between the material and the user so there is no vapor loss. The device does not indicate when it is ready, which could be a drawback for some, but even if the first few pulls do not produce satisfactory vapor, users need only wait a few moments for it to achieve the ideal temperature.

Because of its design, the E-Nano requires very little cleaning and maintenance. The parts that get stained with residue are the stems, which users can easily clean with a cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol. They can also let the stems soak in a container with iso alcohol to let the residue come off completely.

Competing Devices

The battery section has a single-button, which also lets users choose from among the four pre-loaded temperature settings (620F, 860F, 980F, 1090F). There is a handmade glass piece that sits atop the main battery housing, where users inhale and where they can also fill with water.

Plenty Vaporizer

The Plenty Vaporizer is another hand-held, portable vaporizer for dry herbs and concentrates that uses an adjustable heating dial for temperature control between (266°F to 395°F). The Plenty borrows the whip-style of inhalation from other desktop vaporizers, but uses a stainless steel cooling coil for users to inhale their vapor.

The Plenty users convection heating and its dual heat exchanger allows users to get the most out of their aromatic blends.

Positives and Negatives

Conclusion: EpicVape E-Nano Review: Stylish, Discreet and Flavorful

The EpicVape E-Nano occupies a unique position in the desktop vaporizer category as it is officially classified as a “log vape”. That label is accurate, as the entire device begins with a solid, sustainable piece of hardwood that is untreated (no lacquers or paint finishers or other chemicals). It not only makes for a reliable addition to any serious vaper’s collection, but it stands alone as a beautiful ornament for any space.

The E-Nano has functions simply. It has an endless power supply and it’s only another part is the glass stem, so there is very little on the device that can degrade. If anything were to go wrong with the device, EpicVape offers users a three-year warranty on the entire device and a lifetime warranty for the ceramic heater. The temperature control feature is also simple and gives users a lot of control over their vape.

I love the written word, and in my career as a journalist, I strive to provide the facts about everything I write about. There are too many false and alarmist stories out there about life and vaping mainly. My mission is to make e-cigarettes less scary to people with informative articles and extensive research on not only the possible evils of cigarettes and Big Tobacco, but the objective side of e-cigs.
