Review: Kandypens K-Vape Pro

Kandypens K-Vape Pro Review

How it Works

5 rapid clicks of the device will turn it on and holding down the same button will allow you to cycle between the available temperature settings. We recommend using finely ground herb packed down slightly for the best results.

Temperature Flexibility

The K Vape pen has four temperature presets to choose from – 350, 375, 400, and 428°F / 177, 190, 204, and 220°C. Users that prefer temperature control tend to go for devices such as Arizer Solo 2 that helps them find the sweets spot.

This is fine enough, though complete control and a display would be preferable as many budget devices in today’s age give you that option.

Vapor Quality

Wholly unimpressive, the K Vape pen has a tight draw resistance, low vapor production, the flavor is mediocre and really it’s hard to find any positives with the device.

The glass mouthpiece isn’t quite long enough to allow vapor to cool and we struggle to see how the K-Vape even comes close to beating other units like the Utillian 421 and Flowermate Slick.

Manufacturing Quality

The K-Vape feels very finicky and okay at best. The glass mouthpiece is a nice upgrade over plastic however the entire unit doesn’t really feel solid or luxurious by any means. We’re scared plugging it in wrong or a small drop may spell disaster for the device. Users that prefer sturdy yet smart vaporizers usually tend to prefer the Mighty vaporizer.

Included in the box is a real basic kit including the device itself, two mouthpieces, USB charger, and cleaning brush. For this price we would’ve liked to see some spare screens and a packing tool and maybe a carrying pouch included.

There’s no data out there on the battery size, however since the manufacturer doesn’t disclose the capacity, we’d say it’s pretty underwhelming.

Expect around 4-6 sessions on a full charger and to charge up from empty to full to take 1.5-2 hours. The battery is also not removable and once it degrades naturally, you’ll be left with a pricy paperweight.

Users, on a budget, that want something long term usually prefer vaping units like the Flowermate Slick vaporizer because it has a  removable battery.

Portability

It’s small, it’s comfortable to use, and fits well in most pockets or any bag. Not quite as small as some devices like the Zeus Arc or LITL 1, but it’s not cumbersome by any means.

Ease of Use

Anyone wondering how to use K Vape, it’s not difficult to use by any means. Load up the chamber, hit the sequence of buttons, and wait for it to heat up. You might be confused after taking a hit that there’s not much coming out. That’s normal, the vape just doesn’t produce much vapor! Users that prefer stronger vapors prefer units like the Utillian 722 which has an enhanced boost mode for full extraction.

Cleaning is simple. A cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol will clean out the chamber properly and a glass mouthpiece can be submerged in iso to full clean it. Simple and we always prefer vaporizers which make cleaning a non-issue.

Discreetness

Its form factor is discreet and sleek, most people will likely think it’s a standard e-juice vape and the design doesn’t draw much attention to itself.

It does emit a strong amount of odor when in use and after a session so keep that in mind! Users who want little to no odor when in use prefer to use convection based devices like the Utillian 722.

It’s just not very good. Performance is certainly below average in every aspect and for the price, you can certainly get a device with much better vapor production and battery life.

We’d instead recommend something by Utillian like the Utillian 421 or if you want to spend a bit more money the Flowermate Slick.

    I have this vape for a couple of weeks now. There are things I really like about it, and a couple of things I really don’t like. The design, shape, charge time , and feel are all very nice. But then the mouthpiece gets too hot for me. Now, I did need to go to the 3rd level of heat to get any good vapor. I tried to 2nd level but it never worked well. At the 3rd the vapor was good, but got too hot. The bowl is nice and easy to clean, but a little small .. So, this is not a bad one….just a bit too hot for me.

    This little pen surpassed my expectations. It has super easy controls and great manufacturing quality. It takes about 20-30 seconds to get heated up and then it’s ready to vape. The vapor quality is also nice. But, the battery could have been better as it does not last long.

    K-vape pro is my third vaporizer, and so far the best I’ve own. It’s easy to clean, easy to pack, and easy to use. Also, want to say that its mouthpiece is very solid as I usually travel with it and put it inside my pocket without any cover. However, you may not like its vapor quality as it’s a basic unit but pretty good at this price

    It is easy to use and control and also has a decent battery life but the pen takes a while to warm up and then once it appears to be ready you really should wait at least another 30 seconds to vape if you want to see any good vapors. And if you go less than the highest setting you won’t feel any vapors coming out from it.

    Only been using this for a few days, but it’s everything it advertises. I think a larger chamber would be easier and more satisfying, hence the four stars also I had trouble reading the micro print on the business card sized instructions with no illustrations Overall easy to pack, easy to clean. Nice draw. The mouth piece does get hot during use.

    I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this device the first time I used it. The pull is smooth, the flavor of the herb shines through, and the glass mouth piece is comfortable on your lips. It is very light weight, fits comfortably in my hands, and has a long battery life allowing for several sessions before recharging, making this a great device for on the go. Love it!

    As a new user I found this to be easy to use and to clean. It heats up fairly quickly and is perfect for my medical herb usage. Great purchase, especially for under $100 for a vaporizer. Does the job nicely. Losing 1 star out of 5 just because there are times when the tip’s air flow gets jammed but the problem usually fixes itself if I just suck on the mouth piece really hard for a few seconds.

    I did a ton of research before I made the jump! For the price and size, I am very pleased with this dry herb vape. Easy to use, discreet, very well made. Little upset with the performance as it doesn’t produce good vapors. Battery life is also not good.

    The pull is really smooth, the flavor of the herb shines through, and the glass mouth piece is comfortable on your lips and helps in getting flavorful vapors. There’s no learning curve with this and I can’t think of anybody who wouldn’t be able to use it because of the ease of use and the easy maintenance.

    Not bad. After a few days I learned how to make this vape work properly. Although I have to have it on it’s highest setting (blue) to get any decent vapor clouds. Price was great and a great sturdy built device. But the mouth piece does get hot and the battery life is a little short, but it is still worth considering. It is convenient not to have to “burn” herbs while I watch TV.

    This an excellent dry herb device, heats up quickly and hold its temperature. The herb cooks evenly, does not burn your herbs and produces great taste. I believe for the price and the warranty that it has, you are not going to find a better dry vaporizer in this price.

    The kandypens K-vape pro is okay. It’s fun to use and a fresh bowl pack tastes great. But after a few hits, it gets a little nasty. But it does the job none the less. I recommend the 24 k edition because of the accessories but the pen itself is just okay.

    This vape is the bomb. It uses the convection heating style, so pure flavor no doubt. Took me a couple of times to work out how to use it properly. After that perfect, real big hitter on high setting. Great battery and nice build quality, go get one now.

    An excellent vape for the beginners! It seems to be well made and does what it’s supposed to do. Great vape for the money and I’ve tried a lot before this one, but never got a quality of vapors like this vape produces. I haven’t had any issue with this vape yet.

    This is my first vape and it has been a game changer! Great taste, heats super quick, getting way more out of my herbs and very easy to take out and about. Chamber size is great overall a sensational unit.. little bit slippery in the hand, Gets a bit hot in the hand but not an issue really.
