We’ve checked out a lot of units by Yocan before like the Yocan Evolve Plus, and many more. Each time we’ve come away satisfied but felt that Yocan can use some improvements when it comes to manufacturing quality. The Evolve 2.0 aims to bring ultimate versatility to the game with a simple pod system, one for e-juice, one for oil, one for waxy concentrates. Check out what we have to say about the Yocan Evolve 2.0 in our review!

Review: Yocan Evolve 2.0
How it Works
Using a convenient pod cartridge system, simply load in whichever pod you like to use and away you go. They have removable mouthpieces which allow you to load up any material or liquid you like with ease. No proprietary, non-refillable cartridges here!
With 5 clicks of the main button the device will turn on, and that same button clicked three times will adjust the output voltage of the device. Conveniently, the Evolve 2.0 also had a pre-heat function which lasts for 10 seconds which can be activated with a double-click of the button.
The Evolve 2.0 packs in three voltage settings. Unfortunately, Yocan hasn’t mentioned what they are and it’s not listed anywhere on their site or the user manual.
While this doesn’t necessarily affect performance when it comes to wax concentrates, the same cannot be said when it comes to using the device with oils. Having some idea of where the voltage is at is imperative for knowing which setting you should be using with their oil.
Regardless, we feel as though the three settings carry a good variety we just wish we had an idea of what the settings actually are.
From such a tiny device, we weren’t really expecting much. And to be honest it did not really blow us out of the water. Every atomizer included performs, but the performance is average at best.
The dual coil quartz atomizer works decently well for small-medium loads of wax. While the ceramic oil atomizers are able to handle most oils.
The pre-heat function actually works better than expected, allowing you to get larger and more powerful hits than you’d think. Due to the short vapor path, however, the amount of lung and throat irritation may be a little too much for most people.
Yocan has always missed the mark when it comes to manufacturing, which is to be expected when they offer their devices for basement prices. The Evolve 2.0 continues that legacy feeling slightly cheap in the hands, while looking nice from afar. The magnetic pod system is nice and snappy, the button does feel a bit cheap but overall it’s passable for the price.
Included in the box is the battery, a concentrates pod, oil pod, e-juice pod, USB charger, and user manual. A pretty basic kit and we would’ve liked to see a dab tool and/or cleaning kit included, but it’s not a big deal.
With 650mAh jammed into such a small device, we can say we’re quite happy with the battery life. You’ll get multiple days of occasional hits no problem. For casual users, 650mAh is definitely enough for a bit, though more frequent vapers will definitely be itching for something with a bit more juice behind it.
Unfortunately, the battery isn’t removable, meaning once it inevitably degrades, you’re left with a dead device.
About the height of width of a few sticks of gum stacked together, you might even sometimes forget it’s in your pocket.
That’s really great for portability’s sake, however, we also found it a bit annoying to carry around 3 pods at all times. With a couple loose pods in your pocket or bag, it can be easy to misplace or lose them.
We’d appreciate it if Yocan found a solution to conveniently carry them all.
Ease of Use
Entry level wax and oil vaporizers are quite straightforward and simple to use, and the Evolve 2.0 is no different. With one-button operation, magnetic pod system and easily detachable pods, it’s a pretty seamless experience.
As for cleaning, we don’t really recommend trying to salvage any parts once they become overly used and actually recommend simply replacing the offending cartridge when needed.
Since it’s so tiny and reminiscent of entry-level e-juice vaporizers, you can easily take powerful hits in most situations without anyone raising a brow.
A great companion on days out to the park, theatre, bar or anywhere you really like.
A bit more streamlined than the other Yocan units, the Yocan Evolve 2.0 offers a step forward for Yocan units, but still remains fairly average for consumers.
Multi-material devices are usually jack of all trades but masters of none and this is true with the Yocan Evolve 2.0.
