KandyPens K-Box Review
TVG reviews products
The Good: Delivers strong, intense hits | Highly portable | Good battery life
The Bad: Might be too intense for some vapers | Bland design
The Bottom Line: The KandyPens K-Box is a little too intense for me, but it would be perfect for anyone who likes their vapor to be on the strong side. I did appreciate that I can take it nearly anywhere and that it would be ready to go pretty quickly. I didn’t like the forgettable design, even though it is easy to use and pretty sturdy.

Design and Features
General Design: The K-Box is essentially a beginner box mod and it looks a lot like most vape mods on the market. It’s not as distinctive as most of KandyPens other concentrate vapes, though it does come in some nice colors besides basic black if you want to add a dash of style. What it lacks in looks, it makes up for in functionality, because it is very easy to use thanks to its one-button operation.
That button is colored silver and looks distinctive since it contrasts nicely with the black color of the standard K-Box. It also looks good when contrasted against the other colors available on the K-Box.
The K-Box is also 510 threaded, so you can attach your favorite pre-filled cartridges to the device. The voltage settings are clearly labeled on the device, so you’re always sure what voltage you selected. The mouthpiece and atomizer setup is of pretty high quality. The actual mouthpiece is made from glass so it helps to cool down the vapor and keep it pure. One nice touch with the K-Box is that you can adjust the airflow easily using a ring so you can choose how open or restricted you want it to be.
Portability: The K-Box is only four inches tall so you can take it with you anywhere even if with the mouthpiece attached. Fitting it into a pocket might be a bit of a squeeze, but you can just about manage it. You might try a backpack or a purse if trying to fit it into your pocket is too uncomfortable for you.
Build Quality: This vape is made from hard plastic instead of the metal that you see in other more advanced vape mods. That makes the K-Box a little less sophisticated than other, more expensive mods, but it is still quite durable.
How to Use
- Remove the glass mouthpiece to expose the coils.
- Dab your wax onto the coils and then replace the mouthpiece.
- Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
- Press the power button three times to select one of the voltage settings.
- Once heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece while holding down the power button.
Voltage Settings: 2.8V | 3.2V | 3.6V | 4.0V
Performance and Vapor Quality
Vaporizer Performance: Heating is pretty much instantaneous with the K-Box, which is what you would expect with a box mod. The adjustable airflow is a great feature since it gives you some more control over the vaping experience. I prefer to leave it wide open, but I know some people might like a tighter draw, especially on the higher voltage settings where the vapor can get really harsh. And on that subject…
Vapor Quality: Since the K-Box uses triple quartz coils, it can hit pretty hard, particularly at the higher voltage settings. That’s why I stuck to the lower settings where the vapor is milder, but still kind of intense. Clearly, the K-Box is meant more for hardcore vapers and cloud chasers than those who prefer cooler, more flavorful vapor. The glass mouthpiece helps to mitigate some of the harshness, but it never really goes away no matter which voltage setting you choose.
Battery Performance: The K-Box has a 900 mAh battery that can last for a few days of casual use before it needs recharging. With heavier use, it can last about a day, so the battery performance is solid all around.
KandyPens K-Box vs Pulsar APX Wax vs Atmos Q3 Kit
The APX and the Q3 both use triple quartz coils, so if you like intense vaping, then you have some more choices. The APX wax only has a single voltage setting which gives it fewer customization options but makes it easier to use. The Q3 has a longer glass mouthpiece than the other two vapes here, so it keeps the vapor a little cooler than they do.

The KandyPens K-Box is a box mod style concentrate vaporizer that hits hard. That makes it more suitable for veteran vapers who like intense hits and big clouds than for beginners or anyone who prefers cooler, smoother vapor. If that sounds like you, then the K-Box is one of the better choices available.
Who is it for: Cloud chasers and anyone who can handle really intense vapor.
Who is it NOT for: Anyone whose vaping preferences tend to flavor rather than intensity
