KandyPens MIVA Review
The KandyPens Miva performed well in all aspects. I was especially surprised by the amount of vapor this little thing was able to produce.
The KandyPens Miva is the ultimate beginner and intermediate vaporizer. I was amazed by the amount of vapor I was able to produce with short (2-4 seconds) draws. With the extended mouthpiece, the vapor was smooth and crisp, and draw resistance was minimal. KandyPens already released some of the best vaporizers I tested and it seems like the Miva follows the same line. It delivered in all aspects.

KandyPens Miva Review:
KandyPens recently introduced a new flagship vaporizer, the Kandypens Miva. A portable herbal vaporizer that has temperature control settings, deep convection ceramic chamber, and a glass mouthpiece attachment. In this review, we will elaborate more about its features, go over unboxing, load the Miva with dry herb, talk about the interface and do some hands-on usage.
KandyPens have been making some of the best vaporizers I tested and I had high expectations coming into this. I have been using the KandyPens Miva for about a week before writing this review, and I was impressed by its performance every single time.
The Miva is a portable vaporizer, powered by a 2200mAh battery, which provides a 10-20 seconds heat up time. The Miva has a temperature range of between 300-435 degrees F, and just like all of KandyPens products, it comes with a lifetime warranty.
KandyPens Miva Kit:
In the Box, we have the Miva Vaporizer, and my first impression pulling it out of the box was that the Miva is smaller than it looks. It has a shiny plastic shell and is very light. We also have an instruction manual, that will explain how to use the Miva and give important safety information.
Then we have a little box with “Goodies”. The goodies are-
An extended glass mouthpiece. The Miva comes with a small mouthpiece pre-installed but KandyPens also includes a larger mouthpiece that turned out to do a great job in cooling down the vapor. With the small mouthpiece, the vapor has no time to cool down because of the proximity to the oven. Using the longer mouthpiece produced cool, clean tasting vapor. Also in the goodies box is the charging cable and a maintenance kit with a cleaning brush and a packing tool.
KandyPens Miva Design and Interface:
Ok let’s take a minute and talk about the KandyPens Miva design. On the top, there is the smaller mouthpiece pre-installed. Removing it will expose the oven, also known as the heating chamber. And as I mentioned earlier, the Miva comes with an extra “longer” mouthpiece that will dramatically improve the vapor quality and especially the vapor temperature.
While the interface of the Miva is not the most advanced I’ve seen on vaporizers, it is definitely one of the most simple. It has three operation buttons- power, temperature up and temperature down. To turn the Miva on click the power button 5 times and it will immediately start heating up. You can adjust the temperature with the arrows and the Miva will show you the current temperature in smaller numbers. The interface will also flash while heating up and will become a solid Blue when it reached the desired temperature.
Loading with dry herb:
Next, we are going to load the oven with some dry herb. Have my ground herb ready, and remove the mouthpiece to expose the chamber. The KandyPens chamber is not too big which was something I actually liked. It didn’t feel like I had to waste a lot of material when packing it. I personally like to vape in smaller batches, so I liked to Miva as a personal vaporizer.
When packing the oven, you can use the supplied tool to make sure that your dry herb sits tightly. You want to push it in so it feels firm, but not too tight in a way that will restrict the air flow.
Once it is packed nice and tight, close the mouthpiece, and the Miva is now ready to use. And as you probably already gathered, I like the glass mouthpiece much better so I will attach it and we’re all set.
Using the Miva with Dry Herb
Just to go over my settings here, I turn the Miva on by clicking the power button 5 times, and set the temperature to 390 degrees F, I found that to be a good starting point.
Overall I was very impressed with the performance of the Miva. It produced large amounts of thick visible vapor with relatively short draws. With most vaporizers, even the higher end ones, you need to pull for a long time in order to get nice sized cloud, but with the Miva even a 2-4 seconds produced a lot of Vapor!
I think that the glass mouthpiece is a must, and dramatically improves the vapor quality of the Miva. If you take it to go the smaller mouthpiece will work but I I found myself using the glass mouthpiece whenever possible.
Vapor Quality: The Miva produced cool, good tasting vapor. The draw resistance was very low, and that means that the Miva is very easy to pull from. You don’t have to try pulling hard when taking a draw. Breathing in felt easy and natural.
Oven Size: I like the size of the oven of the Miva. The right way to pack an oven is to push the material firmly together. With a big oven, this means that a lot of material is going in for every session. That may be all right if you vape with a friend or a group, but for personal use, the Miva was perfect.
At the end my session, after the Miva has cooled down, I examined the material to check the heating consistency. The herb was completely exhausted and had an even brown color to it. It seems like the KandyPens Miva did a fantastic job in extracting every little bit of the active ingredients that was in the plant.
The bottom line? The Miva is a beast. It may not be my first option for group vaping but it more than impressed me as a personal vaporizer. ceramic chamber and glass mouthpiece provided smooth and cool tasting vapor. The interface is simple and straightforward. Performace is surprisingly good, especially for the Miva small size.
The KandyPens Miva is the ultimate first-time users. It is Mid-Priced Vaporizer and I recommend buying from KandyPens official website. Use coupon code TVG25 to save 25%. That’s around $50 on the current price tag of $200. The Miva for $150 is a great deal and I tested much more expensive vaporizers that were not half as good.
