The KandyPens Donuts is one of the earliest versions of what we know today as the modern dab pen. During the time it was released, most dab pens were just repurposed devices that did not function like one would expect to work nowadays. That said, the KandyPens Donuts boast features others would think simple and rudimentary for today’s standards but were revolutionary and groundbreaking back in the day. These features include preset temperature settings that allowed you to switch from one temperature level to another so you can personalize your sessions. Featuring 3 presets, the KandyPens Donuts offered ample room for personalization allowing consumers to easily dial in their sessions by pressing only a single button. This variable voltage setting is paired with a relatively decent battery that gives you the chance to squeeze in a few sessions in between charges. The KandyPens Donuts uses a 350mAh battery that offers just enough power should you want to take the KandyPens Donuts with you when you’re out and about. The battery can be charged using an eGo-style charger that connects to the KandyPens Donuts via a 510-threaded link. This recharges the battery in a reasonable amount of time but mainly because the capacity of the KandyPens Donuts is only rated at 350mAh. Together, the battery and the preset temperature settings have placed the brand on the map especially in the wax concentrate consumption platform as they offered superior vaporization targeting connoisseurs looking for flavorful clouds of vapor. That said, the KandyPens Donuts offers a flavor-oriented atomizer that was kind of a rarity back then. The KandyPens Donuts uses a ceramic coil-less atomizer back when most wax pens were outfitted with heating elements composed of fibrous wicks and heating coils. This gave the KandyPens Donuts an identity and separated it from the sea of products that were basically one and the same. All these features are packed in a small and compact device that looked sleek and sophisticated, especially back then.
However, the KandyPens Donuts will not make it into the list of everybody’s favorite vaporizers especially the ones who just recently got introduced to wax consumption. First, today’s consumers of wax concentrates look for devices that offer more features and are outfitted with batteries that have a higher capacity. Consumers with higher demands for a dab pen may consider the KandyPens Donuts 350mAh of power a bit lacking. Furthermore, having been outfitted with a dated means to recharge the battery could also put others off especially nowadays it’s become a standard for most dab pens to be compatible with the charger you use with your smartphone and other devices. That said, the KandyPens Donuts may not please every consumer. And if you’re feeling the same thing and are having second thoughts about investing in the KandyPens Donuts for the same reasons then you are at the right place. Here, we’ll talk about some of the relevant features of the KandyPens Donuts so you can decide whether it’s the right device for you. We’ll also look into some of the advantages and disadvantages of using the KandyPens Donuts on the daily so you can tell whether or not the KandyPens Donuts is worth your time. We, at VapoCorner, are here to help you make a better decision when buying your vaporizer so you can make the right purchase whether it’s your first device or you’re simply adding to your growing collection of dab pens, we’re here to help. So, if you’re ready, let’s start this product review.
We’ll admit it, nowadays, having 350mAh of battery isn’t enough. We were only able to get limited number of sessions before the battery needed to be recharged. When we tested the KandyPens Donuts, our team were able to get a handful of sessions which was still pretty decent. We can see the KandyPens Donuts making for a great device especially for beginners who are still getting used to the psychoactive effects of their wax concentrates. The KandyPens Donuts’ battery can last them a good amount of time if they plan of using it for short sessions loaded with a small amount of concentrate. However, those who have developed a high tolerance to the psychoactive effects of their favorite extracts may find that they need to recharge the KandyPens Donuts every now and then. Speaking of charging, the KandyPens Donuts needs to be charged using an eGo style charger that uses and harnesses USB technology but still connects to the battery using 510-threaded connections. The upside of using threaded battery chargers is that they enjoy a stable connection and can deliver uninterrupted power to your batteries. However, you will have to remove the atomizer from the battery so you can screw the charger on it. And although this can be advantageous, the way you have to replace the charger back and again can be pretty tiring. Having a USB-C or even a micro-USB connection in the battery would have been good. But then again, the KandyPens Donuts uses a pretty dated charging technology. The battery can be recharged in about 4 hours compared to the typical 6 to 8 hour charging time you often see on other devices. If there’s any consolation to it, you won’t have to worry about plugging the KandyPens Donuts overing and risk damaging the battery in the process since you can easily wait for 4 hours to remove the battery from the outlet. And yes, aside from connecting the KandyPens Donuts to your wall outlet, you can easily connect it to a USB port in your desktop computer, laptop computer, and even a compatible portable power bank.
In terms of how the battery looks, the KandyPens Donuts boasts a good-looking glossy finish reminiscent of the glaze in the donuts you get from your local boulangerie. This makes the KandyPens Donuts a device befitting for the loud and the proud and not exactly for the discreet and stealthy. We believe these to be some of the most important factors that play in your decision making when planning to buy the KandyPens Donuts. Do take these into consideration before you splash the cash so you can maximize your money when buying your vaporizer.
As we’ve briefly covered above, the KandyPens Donuts is outfitted with preset temperature settings that are designed and engineered to give you specific results from your select wax concentrates. The KandyPens Donuts comes with three presets that were carefully selected and fine-tuned to help you get the best results. First is the lowest at 350° F, they you have the middle temp setting at 390° F, and finally the highest temperature setting at 430° F. this gives you a good spread of temperature levels that allow you to get specific but pronounced results depending on what you want to achieve. The lower temperature levels are perfect for extracting flavorful clouds of vapor. The middle voltage setting creates decent potency and a balance between the aromatics of your wax concentrates while the highest temperature setting is perfect for increasing and intensifying the potent effects of your extracts. The lower temperature levels are great if you’re just looking to enjoy a mood enhancing and focus improving session because it only activates a low level or a low concentration of the wax concentrate’s psychoactive compounds. The middle heat setting is ideal for getting deep sleep and meditation as it can extract the curative compounds of your wax concentrates. Lastly, the highest temperature setting enhances and intensifies the potency of your vapors giving you the high and the body buzz wax concentrates are known for.
That said, we want to warn you that the KandyPens Donuts was built in a way that focuses more of its power in producing flavor. You may feel that the vapors it produces is quite insubstantial because you will not get full bodied vapors that are dense and viscous with the KandyPens Donuts. The kind you get are thin wisps of clouds but still pack flavor. In a way, the KandyPens Donuts makes for a discreet device because it lets out vapors that are unnoticeable allowing you to take quick hits even when you’re out in public. The KandyPens Donuts comes in a black or a white finish as well so you can get it in those colorways if you want to be stealthy. That said, if you’re a cloud chaser, the KandyPens Donuts will definitely not satisfy your needs. On the other hand, if you prefer to experience it rather than see it, then the KandyPens Donuts will make for a great device to start your dabbing journey with.
Overall, the KandyPens Donuts makes for a great device and we see it working out better for beginners who are still starting to experience the benefits of wax concentrates. Not only will the decent battery capacity satisfy them but the ease of use and simplicity of the KandyPens Donuts can make them comfortable with wax consumption and be confident in their skills in dabbing.
