I should start this review by stating that I received this product free for review from the manufacturer. Regardless, my review will remain balanced and honest as to my experience with the product. I should also note that my experience with concentrates is very limited have only started using them with any frequency recently. Also I have only used a few other wax pens, so my comparisons will be limited.
Now let’s forge ahead. The evolve kit comes in a nice package, with a single battery and atomizer housing, two coil heads or atomizers, a dabber tool, and a usb charger. The instructions were limited to the back of the box but I have surmised the battery is probably around 700mah give or take, and the atomizer heads measure at a resistance of 0.8 ohms. This product has been generating positive reviews all around the web for both the quality of the product and the reasonable price, and you can add my review to the pile.
Considering you can purchase this kit for under 25 USD at various sites, the Evolve is very well made and performs way out of its price range. The quartz coils are powerful and flavourful, the atomizer head has an interior cap on it to contain wax from spilling and splattering, and the airflow is very nice. It only gets clogged occasionally and a few pulses of the battery will free up the airflow quickly. I recommend pulsing the battery when using it as the coils can burn a little hot and affect flavour with constant application of power. I have gone through at least 2 grams of wax with the first atomizer I’ve used and it’s still going strong. I’ve given the head a few quick ISO washes with no degradation.
The only improvements I can see making is the battery’s base should allow it to stand up better (a small but annoying complaint) and perhaps the battery’s voltage should be toned down a bit, as continuously pressing the button gives huge hits but flavour suffers. All in all, a great offering from Yocan that probably should be the first option for a wax pen for people on a budget.
