The Torch is designed to work with just about any glass water piece, and it delivers a great overall experience. If you have your own glass but want a device that can deliver controlled temperature, you need to check this out. Keep reading… also if this is your first wax pen be sure to check out our Buyers Guide for helpful info and tips.

Yocan Torch Review

Yocan Torch atomizer

How it Works

When looking at the Yocan Torch Portable eNail, you’ll see two vertical cylinders. The shorter side is the atomizer, while the taller side is your battery. At the bottom, there is a tiered connector that is designed to fit into any glass water piece. It doesn’t matter what kind of stem you have, it will fit right out of the box. The bottom connecting piece can even be flipped so that it works with male or female stems.

 Once you have it on your rig or water pipe, you simply add your wax to the atomizer and put a cap over. You get two atomizers, both dual quartz rods. There are also two caps. One is glass so you can see the vapor building up and the other is metal and has a carb ‘button’.

 To turn the unit on, you click the top of the battery 5 times. When you want to take a draw, you click the button again to engage the heat, wait a few seconds, then begin drawing. You can pause the heat at any time by clicking the button again, or it automatically shuts off after 15 seconds.

The biggest downside to the Yocan Torch eNail is the lack of temperature flexibility. The temperature isn’t even exact, just guaranteed to be with the range of 482F to 536F.

This range is well-positioned for low-temperature dabbing and does deliver good results, but the lack of flexibility is also something that a lot of people may be frustrated by. If you’re on the market for something with more temperature flexibility, then the Linx Blaze with its four temperature settings is another good option.

Vapor Quality

Despite the limited temperature range, the vapor quality is excellent. The flavor is good and the draws all come out smooth, regardless of the size and duration.

On that note, one of the best features of the Yokan Torch is its ability to perform well regardless of draw size. You can definitely take big draws, but this is also well suited to taking very short ones throughout the day.

Also, hotter temperatures are usually associated with bigger clouds, but we found that this was more than capable of doing the job. For truly monster clouds, you may want to check out the Utillian 5 Wax Pen which can pump out massive clouds of vapor.

Manufacturing Quality

The Yocan Torch eNail is made in China, but then again, so are a lot of the vaporizers and e-rigs that are made these days.

Overall build quality is good, including the longevity of the coils. The fact that they designed a full adapter set into the basic unit is also very nice. For more coil options, the SOURCE Orb 4 could be another interesting choice especially because of its multiple coil options.

These sell on a lot of different websites, and it’s not clear if there are knockoffs on the market or not.

It’s probably smart to be diligent when choosing your supplier if you want to make sure you get one that is well made.Yocan Torch torn down

We looked through the materials and Yocan’s website for details on battery size, but couldn’t find any exact specs. The only claim made regarding the battery is that it will last through 45 heat cycles. Each heat cycle is 15 seconds, which is usually enough to finish off an average-sized dab.

Without knowing more about the battery, 45 cycles seem to be a good amount. That should certainly last you through a full day or more. However, for a fast charging alternative, you can check out the Puffco Peak.

Portability

The Torch itself is extremely portable, but there’s a catch: you need another piece to actually use it. As discussed above, it will work with any sized rig, so you can get an extremely small one to use when on the go.

But even the smallest glass piece will significantly diminish the overall portability of the entire setup.

The bright side is you can take this to a friend’s house or party and just use glass that they already have. For situations where you actually want to use it while out and about, we continue to recommend a wax pen like the Kandypens Elite.

There’s just no comparing the convenience.

Ease of Use

This is an extremely easy unit to use. The one-button design is definitely straightforward, but the area where this really shines is the built-in adapters.

The fact that you can quickly put this into any rig is incredible. Gone are the days where you have to buy extra ‘accessories’ just to mate your devices. If you are looking for a simple wax pen, then the Yocan Evolve Plus features a one-button operation which is also a good option to look at.

I wouldn’t call this discreet. I really haven’t seen any e-nail that is though. Sure, the Torch itself is small, but as soon as you put it on top of the glass you’re just begging for attention.

This comes back to the same points we made in the portability section. This is great for at-home use or when at a friend’s house, but if you are in public, a wax pen like the Kandypens Gravity would serve you much better.

If you are a fan of dabs and already have your own glass, the Yocan Torch is definitely worth considering. It may only deliver low-temperature dabs, but it does these very well. You’ll get excellent flavor and good clouds too.

The real kicker is the built-in connector for any size stem, male or female. This makes it a great device to take around to show off at your friend’s houses while using it on their own rigs.

If you don’t have any glass, you may want to look at e-rigs that have the glass built-in like the Focusvape Tourist or Dr. Dabber Boost.

Or if portability is what you are after, your best bet is to start looking at wax pens at like the Source Orb 4.

Compatible with ZEUS Iceborn
This vaporizer is compatible with the ZEUS Iceborn, a revolutionary new vapor cooling system engineered by Canadian vape manufacturer ZEUSArsenal. The Iceborn is designed to produce cooler draws and bigger clouds when connected to your vaporizer. The vapour produced is ultra smooth and crisp and because of ice cooling, instead of water filtration, there is no loss of efficiency. The ZEUS Iceborn adds an additional 2 points to the vapor quality score of this vaporizer and is a highly recommended vaporizer accessory.

    The button got sloppy within a few uses and is to the point now after a few months where it is now very difficult to push unless it’s plugged in

    I just got the torch a few days ago. So far I am very happy with it. It gives a good sized hit. That is smooth and tasty. I haven’t had to recharge it yet. I have only used it for two sessions though. As long as it last it is part of my new dab setup. I was a little skeptical about this but it makes saving much less of a hassle.

    I’ve had it for a few months now, and it is working just fine. My only 2 cons would be the battery life and not being able to check the battery status. As you know, the price of this unit isn’t cheap, so they should have added these features. Overall the performance is fine.

    It is a portable, domeless e-nail that gives me an alternative way to dab, without having to use a blow torch every time which is a real hassle. It makes dabbing mess-free and extremely easy to use and comes a removable 1100mAh battery which last me long enough to fulfill my needs pretty easily. The design can be little awkward for some users but it is totally fine for me.

    The GF picked one of these up a week or so ago. We love it but my GF is sick of the yocan torch, have to heat, have to wait for cooldown, big dabs cool down nails too much, Takes so long to get it ready ready for a dab. I didn’t realize it at the time.. but seeing how quick and painless it is to use the yocan torch, I am going to throw it.
