Regarded as one of the stealthiest vape pens in the industry, the KandyPens Special K Vaporizer is the modern day gentleman’s vaporizer. From a distance the KandyPens Special K Vaporizer looks like the real deal, complete with a pen cap, no one would imagine that what you hold in your hand is a premium, portable vaporizer. Today, I’ll be reviewing the KandyPens Special K Vaporizer and we’ll see just how special this vaporizer is.
So, what are pen-style vaporizers and just how and why did they become so popular? Well, vape pens are probably the smallest iteration of vaporizers. Their benefits and advantages lean towards stealth, convenience, and portability. They’re smaller and easier to carry around compared to their desktop counterparts, they provide the same feel and portability as cigarettes since they can be carried in your pocket. Plus, they’re the cheapest kind compared to the bulkier and heavier portable versions, let alone the desktop variants. They’re generally available to the public and anyone in the right age can purchase a pen-style vaporizer.
Statistics show that a large number of today’s smokers are switching from the conventional means of smoking to vaping. It’s a growing trend, and it’s a good trend. Smoking causes significant damage and puts every organ in your body at risk after prolonged exposure. It accounts to nearly “480,000 deaths each year in the United States” alone. It causes more deaths than firearm-related incidents. Smokers who are conscious about their health have at some point taken these facts into consideration. That’s why vaping has become more of a healthy alternative as opposed to what others claim as vaping to be a gateway to smoking.
Because of its benefits, vaping is now being accepted in most communities and is even being promoted in some countries where cigarette smoking is prevalent. Compared to smoking, vaping leaves less footprint like cigarette butts that take anywhere from 18 months to 10 years to decompose. It produces no ash and makes for a less harmful case of second-hand smoking since vapor evaporates faster than the actual smoke. Vaping is also helpful for cannabis users, both recreational and medical consumers. People who consume marijuana, whether it’s the actual loose-leaf material, wax or oil concentrates, have enjoyed the benefits of vaporizers and prefer its advantages over other methods of THC and CBD delivery.
So what role does the KandyPens Special K Vaporizer in this picture? For cannabis consumers, especially for waxy oil enthusiasts, the Special K combines all the aforementioned benefits of vaping packaged in one discreet pen-style vaporizer.

The KandyPens Special K Vaporizer is a carefully designed oil pen vaporizer with a temperature controlled battery. Its dimensions measure 6.25 inches tall and 3.75 inches by 1.25 inches wide. From afar, no one would suspect that the Special K is a vaporizer in disguise. Especially the black version which honestly looks sleek and sophisticated. It looks like a vaporizer my grandfather would use, hands down, the classiest vaporizer I’ve seen so far. I imagined the Special K to be heavier, but it’s surprisingly compact and lightweight. The only drawback I had is that the glossy black finish seems to take my fingerprints almost every time I hold it. I loved how it easily blends with my everyday carry stuff, like my phone, laptop, notebook and other daily essentials. Overall, here’s what the KandyPens Special K Vaporizer looks like in paper.

How to Use
The KandyPens Special K works similarly like most oil pen vaporizers. Its components consist of a battery, a heating element, a chamber for the material, and a mouthpiece. You simply have to pop open the cartridge, fill it up with oil concentrate, screw it back in and vape away. Here’s a step by step guide on how I did it.
- Take off the cap of the Special K which exposes the mouthpiece and the oil cartridge.
- Unscrew the cartridge to get to the oil reservoir.
- Fill it with your favorite oil concentrate.
- Replace the cartridge.
- Let the material sit on the oil cartridge for a few minutes to prime the oil cartridge.
- Tap the power button five times to power the battery on.
- Tap it again three times to select the temperature setting.
I find the KandyPens Special K vaporizer easy to operate. Though I’m not in any way an expert in oil vaporizers, I’m familiar with using these pens since I’ve handled several vaporizers for wax and dry herbs over the years. The Special K operates basically the same way your normal pen style vaporizer would work, it never required me to learn anything new in order to vape it. There’s no learning curve or getting used to. I appreciate that from the Special K and I’m sure many vape enthusiasts would feel the same way too.
The three preset temperature settings were extremely helpful especially when I switched from oils of different consistency. I was able to get the optimum temperature level for every oil variant and every temperature setting was met with different levels of satisfaction.
The lower temperature settings gave out subtle and smoother vapors while the higher levels produced somewhat more visible clouds, though going on a higher temperature setting reduced the flavor of the vapors. I felt that low temperature vaping is what the Special K was made for, the thin wisps of clouds made for better taste and flavor without blowing up your cover. If you’re a covert vapor who value being discreet then vaping with the Special K is the way to go.
The KandyPens Special K Vaporizer allowed me to take quick hits without much of a fuss. It’s the perfect on-the-go vaporizer for people who want to experience the benefits of their oil concentrates on their feet. Another feature I loved about the Special K is its peek hole which allowed me to tell how much material I had in the chamber. An extra oil cartridge made for better reloading since I literally had no need of stripping of my Special K and refilling the glass cartridge in public. The threaded design made for quick removal and replacement that no one around me even bothered asking what exactly I was doing.
Overall, It’s an oil pen vaporizer I’d recommend especially for those who’d like to keep a low profile when they vape.
