The KandyPens Gravity is a portable wax and dab pen that comes with two styles of an atomizer. The Gravity works with either an all-ceramic, flat-disc atomizer, or a dual-quartz rod/wire atomizer. The proprietary flat-disc atomizer is perfect for low-heat vaping. The battery on the Gravity features four distinct temperature settings.
The heat range on the device runs from 300F to 430F. There is a single power/firing button on the battery section. The button is in the shape of a “K” for the KandyPens logo. The switch also flashes different colors for each of the four heat settings. The entire device has a sandblasted finish that gives it a comfortable grip and a stylish look.

Up-Close with the KandyPens Gravity
The KandyPens Gravity is a slick, three-piece wax vaporizer with a single firing button. The button turns on the device, and also allows users to toggle between the four temperature settings loaded onto the battery. The Gravity shares a form-factor with the Galaxy, another KandyPens wax pen, but there are a few improvements as well.
The Gravity separates into three sections: the battery, the atomizer, and the carb cap/mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is removable, but users need to remove the carb cap to get to the loading chamber. The carb cap also has a small opening on its side to improve the airflow into the chamber. This little air hole is one way the Gravity differs from the Galaxy.
The battery section has an LED tip, again in the shape of the iconic KandyPens logo, a “K.” It lights up whenever a vaper presses the firing button. The battery section connects to the atomizer via a 510-connection, so it is compatible with other tanks and atomizers.
One thing that is unique to KandyPens products is the lifetime warranty they offer for all their batteries, with the Gravity as no exception. The battery uses a unique USB charger that comes in the hard-shell carrying case the Gravity comes in. The atomizers included in the KandyPens kit are two of the best atomizers KandyPens has in their line-up.
The first is the all-ceramic, flat-disc atomizer that first appeared in the KandyPens Donuts. KandyPens also bills the flat-disc, or “Donut” atomizer as a “coilless” atomizer, as it uses no rods or wires in its design. As the “coil” or heating element is only one flat disc, heat is distributed evenly for a more effective vape.
The disc atomizer also functions well at low temperatures. The heat-up time takes a little longer, though, and is not as fast or as powerful as the rod/wire design of the quartz atomizer. The second atomizer uses two quartz rods wrapped with titanium wire, which gives it a quick heat-up time (near-instant) and creates more giant clouds.
Keeping with its low-profile shape and design, the KandyPens Gravity comes in an elegant, hard-shell carrying case that also doubles as a travel case. The case is pocket-size, which gives an idea of how little the Gravity needs to function.
Inside the clam-shell carrying/travel case for the KandyPens Gravity, vapers can expect to find the following:
- 1 x Dual Coil Quartz Atomizer
- 1 x Ceramic Atomizer — Coilless Chamber
- 1 x Chamber Connector
- 1 x Mouthpiece
- 1 x Dabbing Tool
- 1 x Temperature Controlled Battery
- 1 x USB Charger
- 1 x Travel Case
- 1 x Instructions Card
- 1 x Warranty
A Closer Look at the KandyPens Gravity
The KandyPens Gravity has a simple, straightforward design that makes it easy-to-use. There is a single button to activate the battery and change the heat settings. Users need to click the button five times to turn on the device, and another three times to adjust the temperature. Each temperature has a different color, shown on the firing button — “K” logo.
The colors run from:
- Pink = 300F
- Red = 350F
- Green = 400F
- Blue = 450F
The device also remembers the last temperature settings, and it begins there when it is reactivated. There are no magnetic connections anywhere on the device. The atomizer and carb cap has 510 threads, so a user needs to screw off the mouthpiece and top cap to access the loading chamber.
The mouthpiece is also removable and comes separate in the Gravity kit. The mouthpiece has a glossy finish to it and hourglass shape to make it a better fit in the mouth when vaping. The entire device is lightweight and portable, so it makes for an ideal device to vape on-the-go. It can fit comfortably in a pocket or bag or the carrying case that it comes in.
The Power Source
The KandyPens Gravity uses a lithium-ion battery that can last for around two hours on a full charge. The battery life also depends on which atomizer is installed. The low-temp, flat-disc ceramic atomizer uses less power and, therefore, can last for longer, around 100 cycles or sessions.
When using the coil/rod atomizer, users can expect a shorter battery life. As the coil/rod atomizer uses more power and heats-up faster, the battery will drain more quickly than with the ceramic heating element. The choice of temperature also plays a role in determining battery life.
If vapers prefer a more flavorful and subtle vapor, the ceramic atomizer, coupled with the two low-heat settings, should be ideal. Vapers who want to suck on huge clouds and get more massive clouds should stick with the higher heat settings with the coil/rod quartz heating element.
Ceramic or Quartz?
The dual option atomizers for the Gravity offers vapers a chance to enjoy two different styles of vaping. Ceramic and quartz are common materials for both dry herb and extract vaporizer heating elements. Still, the flat, disc/plate heating element is an innovation that KandyPens first used in their concentrates pen, the Donuts.
The quartz dual-rod atomizer is another familiar heating element, as the Galaxy also made use of this style of a heating element. Having both options for the Gravity vape pen is sure to please both flavor-lovers as well as cloud junkies. The bonus for users of the Gravity is that the two atomizers come with leak-proof seals around the base.
Users can use oils or liquid concentrates with the unit without the fear of spilling or leakage. Cleaning and maintaining the atomizers might be the most challenging part of using Gravity. The chamber can hold about 0.5g of materials, but users will only need a small dab of concentrate to get outstanding performance.
Users can dry-burn the heating elements before use to burn off any unwanted oils or chemicals from the factory. Whenever the atomizer needs cleaning, users can switch on the device at the highest temperature, and then press the firing button to liquefy any residue at the bottom of the coil.
Vapers can turn the device upside down, place a piece of paper or foil underneath, and let the oil seep out of the chamber. After, users can clean the sides of the chamber walls or the mouth with the alcohol wipes provided in the Gravity vape pen kit.
Vaping with the KandyPens Gravity
Vapers need only a small, pea-sized piece of wax or a few drops of liquid to get quality vapor from the Gravity vape pen. After charging the battery for the Gravity, users need to attach their preferred atomizer (ceramic or quartz) to the device. Once connected, users should load their material chamber with the dab tool provided in the kit.
After clicking the firing button five times, they should then select their ideal temperature. Users can choose from the two lower temperatures, at 300F and 350F, respectively, to gently melt the material inside. Only the vapor that emerges is not so plentiful. It is kind of thin and does not fill the mouth.
Using the higher temperature settings with the flat-disc atomizer did result in more massive clouds and kept a noticeable flavor profile. The dual quartz rod atomizer also did an excellent job. Its heat-up time was less than the ceramic-disc heating element, and the vapor production was formidable.
While all the temperature settings did provide a good range for users to play with, the range was TOO wide for users to plug in a perfect setting. Going from 400F to 450F, it leaves a lot of space in between. With more accurate temperature control, users might have had more options than just those two values.
The Vape-Off: KandyPens Gravity vs. the KandyPens Galaxy vs. the Dr. Dabber Aurora
The KandyPens Galaxy
The KandyPens Galaxy is a brand-mate to the Gravity, and it uses a similar quartz rod atomizer that comes as a separate option with the Galaxy. The Galaxy is also compatible with the ceramic-lined atomizer that comes standard with the Gravity.
The Galaxy has a more refined, elegant design that the all-black seriousness of the Gravity. The Galaxy has three exterior color options, which make it very discreet. The Galaxy also has only three preset temperatures loaded onto its battery, one less than the Gravity, which has four settings.
The Dr. Dabber Aurora
The Dr. Dabber Aurora is a wax and liquid concentrates pen that comes with three different atomizers in the same kit. The three separate atomizers consist of two coil/rod heating elements made of ceramic and quartz along with a single, flat ceramic disc atomizer.
The Aurora also has three preset heat settings and uses a 650mAh, 510-threaded battery section to attach to the atomizers. The Aurora also has a similar, all-black, soft-touch exterior as the Gravity, but it also has more airflow holes than the Gravity. The Aurora also has an all-ceramic mouthpiece, which is different from the metal mouthpiece on the Gravity.

Final Thoughts: Wrapping Up on the KandyPens Gravity
The KandyPens Gravity is a portable, discreet wax vaporizer pen that offers versatility and consistent performance. The Gravity vape pen comes with two styles of an atomizer, so vapers can easily switch between the two. The flat, ceramic-disc, offers great flavor at low temperatures, but the cloud cover lacks this style of a heating element. For users who want a greater mouthful of vapor, KandyPens smartly included the Galaxy atomizer with two quartz rods wrapped with titanium wire.
The quartz rods and titanium wire heat up fast, and the four heat settings let users find their ideal vaping temperature. The battery can last longer with the ceramic atomizer than with the quartz. The four heat settings on the battery, though, let the user find their preferred setting, while it is not as accurate as precision temperature control. At just under $100, the Gravity takes its place among the best mid-range devices available for dabs and waxes.
