The Yocan Evolve Vaporizer has been the brand’s flagship device and is the dab pen that put Yocan on the map. It’s simple, effective, and affordable allowing beginners and advanced consumers to enjoy an on-the-go wax pen vaporizer that has all the essential features. The Yocan Evolve Vaporizer is outfitted with a 650mAh battery that is perfectly paired with the company’s iconic quartz dual coils (QDC). Together, the heating element and the battery delivers flavorful clouds of vapor with a slightly noticeable body buzz. That said, it’s often the choice of both medicating patients and recreational consumers since the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer allows them not only to reap the benefits of their select wax concentrates but also to consume it discreetly while they enjoy only the slightest psychoactive effects from their extracts. The Yocan Evolve Vaporizer also comes with a functional coil cap that works pretty much like the carb caps on traditional dab rigs. These caps allow for better temperature regulation and heat retention. And, like most of Yocan’s products the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer is made simple and easy to use. A single power button is used to control and operate this dab pen with very little to no learning curve at all.
If you’ve set your eyes on this wax pen, we suggest reading our honest and unbiased review first to help you decide whether to make the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer your next dab pen or not. We’ll share some real-world advantages and disadvantages in using the first iteration of Yocan’s Evolve dab pen to help you make a sound and informed decision before your next purchase.
Yocan’s products are characterized as being simple, straightforward, and affordable. That’s why many consumers label products under Yocan’s banner as entry-level devices. The kind that’s cheap and is less complicated than your premium vaporizer. Nevertheless, being affordable and rudimentary isn’t always a bad thing. The Yocan Evolve Vaporizer is a device that allows both beginners and advanced consumers to easily use a dab pen without having to learn new ways to dab.
In classic Yocan fashion, the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer is outfitted with a single power button that’s used for all the wax pen vaporizer’s functions. From activating the battery to how you trigger the heating element, you only use one button. This is great, especially for beginners, who wish to experience using a dab pen without having to go through all the trouble of setting up a complex and complicated device. This setup makes the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer a user-friendly device that acts as a gateway for those who find dabbing daunting. That said, the good thing about Yocan’s products, like the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer, is the actions needed and necessary to use the device. They are uniform and will keep all users on the same page, so, if you have experienced using a product from Yocan before, you’re pretty much sure to be able to use the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer like a pro.
It also features a single heat setting. Because it’s one of the earliest dab pens in Yocan’s catalog, the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer offers a heat setting found on older devices. This makes it ideal for newbies who are just starting out at dabbing and who are just looking to test how consuming wax concentrates will benefit them. No need to set temperature profiles that might just complicate the experience of beginners. The Yocan Evolve Vaporizer allows you to enjoy and experience the essence of consuming wax concentrates instead of focusing on things you shouldn’t be worrying about – like temperature. When you’re a beginner, what matters to you is getting and experiencing the results and you pay little to no heed on the specifics of dabbing like how wax concentrates react to various temperature levels. In fact, if you need to play around with temperature, what you can do is play with how short or how long you hold the power button which is technically an easier way of calibrating and fine-tuning your sessions. Yes, it does lack temperature control but it only makes it simpler and easier for many consumers to enjoy the benefits that their select wax concentrates have to offer.
Yocan has been known for producing some of the best dab pens and dry herb pens on the market. That’s because their products combine the elements of affordability and practicality as their vaporizers are often reliable and dependable and are only sold half the price of their premium counterparts. One of the things that make the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer a reliable dab pen is its heating element. The Yocan Evolve Vaporizer uses the company’s iconic quartz dual coils that are still in production and is still used amongst Yocan’s more recent products until today. The technology that made the brand and the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer model popular amongst many extract enthusiasts remains relevant to this day. The quartz dual coils, colloquially known as QDC, are made using two high-grade quartz rods. The rods are then wrapped in titanium coils that allow the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer to deliver fast and accurate heating of your select wax concentrates. Quartz has been widely used in the vaping industry and Yocan has used quartz and its technology in almost all of its devices. Quartz is a great conductor of heat which is why it’s good in vaporizing wax concentrates and other extracts of the same consistency. Furthermore, because it can act as a great catalyst for heat, it can reach high-temperature settings quickly. As a result, your wax concentrates are vaporized faster and because the QDC reaches high-temperature settings faster, the psychoactive compounds in the extracts are also released. This allows for a vapor production that’s both flavorful and is packed with potency.
The quartz dual coils used in the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer is only the first of a series of heating elements that are spread around Yocan’s products including the single quartz coils used on Yocan’s cartridge-like atomizers and vape pods, the recently introduced quartz tri coils, and the all-powerful quad coils. By far, the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer’s quartz dual coils produce the most comfortable vapors of all. The kind that won’t irritate your lungs and your throat which is why it’s become as popular as it has been especially amongst beginners. Warm vapor production may seem harsh on the throat and can irritate especially those who are just trying out the consumption of wax concentrates the first time. You don’t want to get caught up coughing your lungs out. Using the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer can help you avoid just that.
Another feature worth mentioning is Yocan’s clever use of the coil caps. The coil caps act like the carb caps on a dab rig. What it does is it caps and regulates both the temperature and the amount of air that goes into the heating element. By doing so, the coil caps also help the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer’s quartz dual coils maintain and retain heat and preserve battery life in the process. The coil caps also block spit backs as hot wax concentrates bubble up when they are exposed to extreme temperature levels.
The Yocan Evolve Vaporizer uses a 650mAh battery to heat up the coils. The battery and the atomizer are 510-threaded which means that removing and replacing the heating elements can be done easily. It doesn’t have connections or interlocking parts of proprietary design which means that you can easily understand the workings of the atomizer and the battery’s connection. On that note, the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer is recharged using a 510-threaded battery charger.
Because the battery capacity is only 650mAh, the longevity in offers in between charges can only be considered as decent. There are a lot of vaporizers on the market today that offer larger battery capacity than the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer like another dab pen from the same brand, the Yocan Evolve Plus XL Vaporizer that uses a 1400mah battery – more than twice as much as the Evolve’s 650mAh capacity. That said, you can expect relatively decent performance from the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer in between charges. And, when the time comes for you to recharge the battery, you may find that it’s not as compact and as convenient as dab pens that use today’s technology. Having a device that uses USB technology is more advantageous than using a 510-threaded charger. Not only is a USB (Micro USB, USB-C) charger offers faster charging times but it’s also more convenient. A 510-threaded charger is bulkier than the USB-C and micro USB chargers you use to recharge your smartphones and your laptops. Having said that, another disadvantage to using a 510-threaded charger is that you always have to carry it around with you wherever you go. If you like traveling with your device, be sure to carry around a small pouch to store all the paraphernalia used for the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer.
Overall, the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer is a device we can easily recommend especially for beginners who want to enjoy dabbing less the complications. Sure, it may lack the features found on an advanced dab pen but its simplicity and rudimentary design can be considered as the Yocan Evolve Vaporizer’s actual allure.
