KandyPens Icon Review-
KandyPens has been making some of the best vaporizers and vape pens I ever tested this year, and they just came out with their first e-nail style vaporizer- the KandyPens Icon 510 Kit. The Icon is a Concentrate compatible portable e-nail (although I doubt you’ll ever get it out of the house), with a water filtration attachment.
The Icon is available as a stand-alone 510 attachment ($119 from KandyPens) or as a kit that includes the Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 and 3 batteries ($199 from KandyPens). If you buy the standalone version, of course, you will have to use your own box mod to power it. KandyPens recommends using a 25w-50w mod without the temperature control option turned on. Important: Do not go over 50w as you may damage your heating element.
KandyPens Icon Kit Includes:
- Icon e-nail 510 base
- Titanium e-nail
- Quartz e-nail
- Ceramic e-nial
- Glass Attachment
- Carb Cap
- Instruction manual.
So the KandyPens Icon comes with 3 nails- titanium, quartz, and ceramic. That’s actually great that they give you all three in the kit and then you can reorder your favorite one. For me it was the quartz but more about that later on.
Prepare for use
To Prepare the KandyPens Icon for use, attach the 510 base to your vape mod, and install one of the 3 included nails. Next, fill up the water attachment. The water attachment is made of 2 pieces. Remove the top piece and fill the bottom glass piece with water. Be careful not to overfill.
The water should fill about a third of the bottom glass piece. Do not fill the water when the glass unit is connected to the base or the vape mod. You always want to keep the water away from the heating element and the nail.
Using the KandyPens Icon
I got the best results when pre-heating the Icon for 5-10 seconds before using it. Especially when using the Quartz or Ceramic nails. I used the Icon with the Reuleaux RX2/3 box mod, as supplied from KandyPens, and it performed outstanding.
I’ve tested many e-nails previously but the Icon is the most powerful and aggressive of them all. The KandyPens Icon heat up quickly, and I could feel the heat of the nail even from a few inches away. The water filter attachment did an amazing job of cooling down the vapor and giving it that distinct pure flavor that you can only get from water filtration.
The glass water attachment has a unique design, as it is made of 2 pieces. This design proved to be 2 problems I always had with e-nails- the water touching my lips, and filling them up was a bitch. With this 2 piece water attachment, the water stay at the bottom part and therefore will never touch your lips. The 2 piece design also made it easy to fill and clean the attachment.
The KandyPens Icon is outstanding. After about a week of using it, it performed well in all categories. The Icon impressed me every time and I was looking forward for my next sessions. The vapor was crisp and cool, and the flavor was top notch.
The price is a bit steep ($119 / $199 from KandyPens) but just as with all of KandyPens products- this is a premium vape. It is not here to compete with the cheaper units. KandyPens also has a lifetime warranty of their products.
If you are looking for a powerful, high-end e-rig system, the Icon is it.
