Yocan is a well-known family in the vaporizer world. The Evolve Plus follows a similar design and technology line with several devices released, keeping the same idea: have an efficient and easy-to-use vaporizer. Among other improvements, the device requires no prep time. It features a quartz dual coil, a built-in ceramic chamber, and a unique button technology. It helps the device get ready in a snap and put you in the best conditions to enjoy pleasant vaping sessions.

This device is a sleek and discreet vaporizer. It has pretty much the shape of a pen, just a tiny bit bigger (due to the large chamber) than the average pens with similar features. It is very convenient to use in public and to carry around. The atomizer cap system is unique and specific to Yocan. The cap works like a carb cap on a regular rig. It allows the temperature around the coils to stay hot. This also offers more efficient vaporization.

Significant Improvements

The Evolve Plus does not need any prep time, and that is a great thing. It is heating up quickly and gets ready to use in a snap.

Yocan also found a solution to the splatter and flooding issues common to quartz coils devices. The square edges design of the chamber cart efficiently prevents the splatter from entering the chimney. Instead, it is melting back in the cart.

The ceramic chamber on the bottom is easily accessible, which helps to reload quickly and anywhere. The coil cap is another design option we find excellent. It prevents heating loss between the chamber and the pipe. Moreover, it does not interfere with the vapor at all. Also, the device has 15 seconds automatic shut-off to help to conserve the battery.

Getting Started

To turn it on, press the button five times before the light around the button is illuminated, which means the device is activated. Moreover, to switch the device off, we simply pressed the button another five times.

The Evolve + does not feature any temperature control, which can be convenient for some or disappointing for others. However, with its unique fixed temperature, one button with a five clicks system to turn on or off, easy to open, fill in, and clean, the device is simply a piece of cake to use.

The device battery charges with a micro USB. It features a 1100mah battery, which is much stronger than the standard batteries in similar category pens. Such a large battery is a strong argument because you will certainly get a full day of vaping (at least). It is great because it also gives more draws on a single charge.

Yocan Evolve Plus XL — Lots of Power in a Pocket

Sturdy, compact, and stealthy, the Yocan Evolve Plus XL packs a punch. More significant than the average wax pen, it will surprise what a vporizer can do.

Users of the Yocan Evolve Plus will find the same features that made it an exceptional wax concentrate pen but with some updates to make it even better. For starters, the quad coil quartz atomizer is more powerful than the average coil on a vape pen and delivers huge clouds due to having four times the size of other wax pens. It remains compact. The 1400mAh battery offers a 25% longer life than the Evolve Plus.


As powerful as a dab-rig, yet still small enough to fit into a pocket, it doesn’t come any stealthier. For added discretion, there is even a dual compartment silicone jar built in to store wax. To get the max out of this wax pen, it’s best to keep up with cleaning. The coils can run hot, and as a result, there may be some build-up of residue in the coil chamber. Using isopropyl alcohol will dissolve any stuck on or burnt wax. The atomizer should last at least 6 to 8 weeks, but heavy users may want to swap that out earlier to ensure a tasty vappr every time.

The Yocan Evolve Plus XL has everything needed to vape while out and about all within the body of the pen itself makes it so easy to get that fix. This is a great starter wax vape pen for those looking to get started with vaping concentrates.

How to Use

The Yocan Evolve Plus is a concentrates atomizer for both liquid and solid concentrates. Unfortunately, Evolve Plus does not support dry herb vaping. The device has an internal dual quartz rod atomizer and uses an internal 1100mAh battery.
The Yocan Evolve Plus has a very straightforward design. The unit is divided into several parts, including the battery, coil, coil cap, atomizer, and mouthpiece. The pieces are all 510-threaded for easy assembly. Users need to:

  • Fully charge the battery
  • Attach the coil chamber to the base and battery
  • Load the material chamber
  • Attach the atomizer tube/mouthpiece to the chamber
  • Press the firing button five times and press to inhale

How long do Yocan Evolve Plus coils last?

Yocan Evolve Plus coils generally have a lifespan of between a week and three weeks. Heavy use can shorten that time frame to only a week. If you begin to experience dry, burnt hits or if you notice that vapor production has decreased, those might also be signs that it is time to change the coils.

Is Yocan Evolve Plus for dry herbs?

No, the Yocan Evolve Plus is not for dry herbs. The heating element configuration does not support flowers and will only singe or burn any dry material. However, Yocan does feature a line of dry herb vaporizers, including a version of the Yocan Evolve, the Evolve D that supports dry herb vaping.

The Competitors

The Atmos Kiln RA

The Atmos Kiln RA has a similar form factor to the Yocan Evolve, with its stout, stubby body. In addition, both devices measure around the same, with the Evolve being 4.7inches long and the Kiln at around 4.5inches.

The Kiln has only an all-ceramic heating chamber and disc element, while the Yocan Evolve uses dual-quartz and ceramic disc atomizer. As a result, the Evolve is much cheaper at $50 than the $69.95 price tag for the Kiln, but they both produce vapor very well.

The Mig Vapor WASP

The WASP has a much slimmer, more compact design than either the Evolve or the Kiln, making it the more portable of the three. However, the battery on the WASP is only 900mAh, so it is less than Evolve’s powerful 1100mAh cell or Kiln’s 1000mAh battery.

The WASP does not have a ceramic heating element but uses special carborundum coils that do not oxidize and produce vapor just as clean and pure as ceramic. The WASP retails for $49.95 on the Mig Vapor website, so it is the most cost-efficient option, but not by that much.

    Great review!!! I just purchased the Evolve Plus yesterday and after buying it on a whim I am super happy with it. I was using a GSlim before and the Yocan is more than a step up. Easy to use and with a wider tank easier to fill. Also going from a single coil unit to a double coil came out in the first hit as with a higher temp the hits were larger and more flavorful. The added silicon container at the base is a great idea as well. Being a big guy with big hands I also like the stout, solid feel of the pen. I work at a dispensary in Oregon and remarked to the owner how good this vape is for the cost.
