Vaping wax concentrates have been around for almost a decade -- at least that’s what the modern-day records show, and it could have been longer than that. Wax is a product of blasting cannabis herbs with a solvent until the concentrated doses of cannabis that contains strong compounds of THC and CBD are extracted from the plant. These concentrates oftentimes have a waxy consistency, thus, most refer to them as wax concentrates.
Initially used with dab rigs, today’s advancement in technology allowed wax concentrate consumers to use portable, handheld devices like wax pen vaporizers for their daily wax concentrate rituals. Companies like Yocan and Puffco have spearheaded the revolution in wax pen vaporizers and paved the way for most companies to venture into wax concentrate consumption using vape pens. Devices like the Yocan Evolve Plus and the Puffco Pro 2 are some of the most notable wax pen vaporizers that are used by many consumers for featuring easy and straightforward operation as well as practical functions one would look for in a wax pen vaporizer. Though both are at the top of everyone’s list and share similarities as wax pen vaporizers, both present a dynamic spectrum in portable vaping. Join me today as I review these two portable vapes and find out which one of them is the best wax pen vaporizer.
For the most part of Yocan’s existence as a manufacturer of quality portable vaporizers, they have already amassed numerous patents for vaporizer tech that gives them the edge in the market. With weed tech only available on Yocan products like the Pandon, a QUAD technology featuring dual quartz coil designs and the iShred, an herb vaporizer with a built-in grinder. Not to mention the Evolve plus with its QDC tech allowing it to generate clean vapors with its dual quartz rods gives Yocan as an institution the lead in manufacturing high-quality vaporizers. Their strongest suit as a company is their R&D team, a group of professional engineers whose ideas give way to unique and distinct vaporizers.
Puffco, on the other hand, is a company that’s bent on changing and reshaping the industry and the way how you vape your favorite wax concentrates by merging the elements of design and engineering and creating the best platform for wax concentrate consumption. Puffco has had some award-winning products like their flagship device, the Puffco Plus. With prestigious recognition from some of the biggest names in the cannabis industry, like High Times Magazine and other mainstream media outlets like “Mashable, Rolling Stone, and Cool Hunting.” Puffco as a brand has gained immense aesthetic value with products that are both tasteful and functional at the same time. No other vaporizer manufacturer has come this close to achieving a perfect balance of masterful craftsmanship shown in Puffco’s products.
Alright, so they’re both good. But which one is better? To help us decide why don’t we look at this argument through the eyes of the daily dabber. Let’s admit it, there is or at least at one point we’ve been conscious about how much we’re spending on our vape budget and I am still.
The Cost Conscious
For the cost conscious vaper, the clear winner is the Yocan Evolve Plus Vaporizer. Yocan has been known in the industry as a manufacturer of affordable vaporizers, both for herbs and for wax concentrate. Though the prices of their vaporizers come in cheap, the quality of their devices is in no way in the same context as the former. The Yocan Evolve Plus, with all its features, wouldn’t come at the price point we see it should it was released and branded by a different manufacturer. Here’s what the Evolve Plus brings to the table.
- Built-In Concentrate Jar
- Dual Quartz Wax Atomizer
- Larger Chamber
- Micro-USB Charging
- Upgraded Battery
- Sleek and Discreet
The Evolve Plus was built to be used every day, for people who would most likely put the Evolve Plus to the extreme test, those who would subject it to extreme use. That’s what makes the Evolve Plus from Yocan best suited for the daily dabber. It’s cost-effective, cost-efficient, and overall a practical choice. We, I don’t have money to burn so I’m all for saving and even if I had, I’d still be on board on choosing an affordable yet durable unit. I’d love to save on vaporizers since the money I’d be saving I’ll be using to buy materials, and wax isn’t cheap.
Most people who like to flaunt it wants to have that wax pen vaporizer that draws attention once they pull it out of their pocket. If you’re the kind of guy who likes to display and show it off, then look no further because the Puffco Pro 2 is the best wax pen vaporizer for you. The moment you look at it you’d know that it’s a Puffco. With its iconic cloud logo whacked on the power button and its polished premium exterior, you won’t be able to resist and would immediately be drawn to its sexy and posh look. With great aesthetics and even better vape tech, the Puffco Pro 2 sports a price tag that’s a tad above the Yocan Evolve Plus. If you’re down to pay for the added premium then feel free to lavish upon the experience of vaping on such an iconic vaporizer. Here’s what the Puffco Pro 2 has to offer.
- Premium Finish
- Extended Battery Life
- Large Capacity Ceramic Chamber
- High-Efficiency Bowl Design
- Sesh Mode
- 3 Temperature Control Settings
The Puffco Pro 2 is for those who want to look good and feel good, for those who want only the best things in life. The people who won’t bat an eye in spending on a vaporizer that spells and speaks sophistication above function.
A Biased Conclusion
I’m a simple man with simple needs, I’d be biased and won’t speak for everybody but only for the general public that I would have to choose the Yocan Evolve Plus between the two vaporizers. Why? Because apart from the luxurious finish and the three temperature settings found on the Puffco Pro 2 both wax pen vaporizers are virtually the same. Moreover, I find that having two coils are better than one.
The Yocan Evolve Plus sports two quartz rod coils while the Puffco Pro 2 is only outfitted with a single coil atomizer. In terms of real value, I’d have to go with the Evolve Plus. It’s simply better and sensible, the most realistic approach to vaping in my own opinion.
