From the same company that gave you the Grizzly Guru comes a rather simple and straightforward device for wax concentrate consumption. The Grizzly Honey Dab Pen is a user-friendly dab pen that’s outfitted with some rather rudimentary featured for a dab pen released just a few years back. For the uninitiated, the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen came from Grizzly Originals, a subsidiary company of Namaste Vaporizers which is why we were expecting a lot from a device that came from the workshop of vaporizer sellers who supposedly know what the customer wants. That said, its simplicity and straightforwardness could be what makes the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen the ideal entry level vaporizer for beginners and vaporizer newcomers looking for a device they can start with. On that note, we had a hard time looking for battery specifications for the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen and we were surprised with the lack of information the manufacturers cared to put out. That said, we’re sure that it uses an eGo style battery with universal 510-threaded connections which makes it so that you can connect a wide variety of attachments and heating elements with the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen aside from the inclusive wax atomizer for your favorite extracts. However, the battery does use the same 510-threaded connections to accept charge which means that there’s no pass-through charging and that you have to keep on removing and replacing the atomizers when you need to juice up the battery. Speaking of which, the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen uses a variable voltage battery allowing you to select from various preset and pre-tuned temperature levels that are designed and engineered to give you specific results. Everything from its rudimentary design and the decent level of customization it offers makes the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen a great device for beginners to start with. However, it may not appeal to most advanced and experienced consumers.
The lack of precision in controlling temperature may cause vape veterans to stop and think before investing in the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen. Not only does this limit them to how much they can achieve with each session but it seems that having to go through preset temperature settings gets old fast. Also, the use of 510-threaded connections in charging the device is kind of decades dated for a dab pen who will compete with devices outfitted with modern USB-C charging technology and makes the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen irrelevant. If you’re on the fence about throwing in money in this vaporizer for the same aforementioned reasons, then you’re in the right place. We know you’ve been eyeing the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen but are having second thoughts about investing in it so we decided to make this review for you. Here, we’ll look into the more relevant features of the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen so you can decide whether or not it’s worth your time and your money. Furthermore, getting to know the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen a little better gives you the ability to tell whether or not the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen is the right vaporizer for you. So, if you’re ready to know what this dab pen brings to the table, let’s start and get on in with the review.
As we’ve briefly covered above, we were surprised of the lack of battery information about the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen. That said, we were able to squeeze in a few sessions with it but the length of how long the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen stays up also depends on the temperature level you’re using. Based on other devices we’ve used, we can say that the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen’s battery is rated at around 400mAh or less, although there’s no official statement from the manufacturer as to how much battery capacity does the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen carry. That said, the battery holds up well for about a couple of sessions before it needs to be recharged. Beginners and those who have low tolerance to THC-rich wax concentrates can make do with just having to recharge the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen at least once a day while those who consume their wax concentrates heavily and frequently might need to keep the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen plugged in a couple of times more. This could be a hassle because you will have to remove the atomizer every time you need to charge the battery which could look like a lot of work. Just make sure to remove the coils after it cools down lest you’re up for some toasted fingers.
The Grizzly Honey Dab Pen uses an eGo-style battery that sticks to the 510-threading while it connects to a USB outlet. USB charging is convenient as it allows you to enjoy more options in recharging your battery and you don’t always have to search for a power outlet every time you need to plug the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen. You can connect it to a desktop computer, a laptop computer, a video game console, or even to a compatible power bank for the optimum on-the-go charging experience. The eGo-style charger that comes with the device has an LED light indicator which lets you know when the battery’s still charging or if it’s already juiced up. The charger is also lightweight, but let’s face it. Nothing beats the convenience of USB-C charging.
Having said that, the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen is perfect for anyone who are just testing the waters and are trying out if using a vaporizer and switching to a healthy alternative is what’s best for them. Devices with these types of technology are usually cheap and therefore makes letting go of the device easily compared to vaporizers that require some saving up for. On the other hand, you might want to invest in a more advanced device with relatively advanced features if you’re someone who has advanced vaping skillsets and advanced tastes for a vaporizer.
The Grizzly Honey Dab Pen also uses a beginner-oriented temperature setting with preset temperature levels so you can switch from one preset and enjoy the benefits given by your wax concentrates when exposed on the said temp setting. This makes for a great feature for beginners who do not have a concrete idea of what active ingredients their select wax concentrates have to offer and what temperature level causes these active ingredients to be extracted. Having used a preset temperature vaporizer feels like you’re getting generic results with varied effects. That’s why these temperature settings are usually the safest choice for beginners as it offers just the right amount variety to prevent confusion. Adjusting the presets are also user-friendly as it can be accessed through the single button installed in the device. A few clicks let you toggle through each setting allowing you to operate the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen single handedly without having to sit and stare at your vaporizer like you would with one that uses precision temperature controls.
Our only gripe with the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen’s preset temperature settings is that it does not indicate what the temperature level is nor is there any user manual to tell what the settings are. That said, you can still make out the settings going by low, medium, and high. Pretty much like other batteries that use the same technology, we reckon the temperature level to be around 2.4 volts, 2.8 volts, and 3.2 volts. These variable settings are also represented by an LED button which makes getting used to the temperature settings a little easy. And while the temperature levels are on the soft and gentle side, they still yield distinct results. The lower settings make for vapors with thin wisps of clouds which we are convinced to be perfect for stealth vaping for when you’re out and about. Since the vapors aren’t exactly dense, you won’t bother other people, plus it doesn’t smell as much too. When using the medium temp setting, you get slightly improved flavor and vapor quality that’s still passable as a stealth session for when you’re roaming around town. Using the high setting is where potency kicks in. It gives you a mild body buzz that lets you still be functional through the day without melting your face off. All of these features can be accessed and unlocked with just a few clicks of a button. However, as we’ve mentioned earlier, advanced consumers might feel these settings a bit lacking. Not only may they feel underpowered but the number of choices can bore connoisseurs that are looking for more specific active ingredients released by using more accurate temperature settings.
Overall, the Grizzly Honey Dab Pen is a great device especially if you’re a beginner looking to use an inexpensive device to help you try and test the waters. Affordable dab pens won’t let you feel as guilty when upgrading to a more expensive device later on in your journey.
