KandyPens PRISM+ Review

9.6 Total Score
Bottom Line

The KandyPens Prism and Prism+ are two of the best vape pens ever made because of the high quality vapor they produce, how easy they are to use, and the high level of customization they offer. Oh, and they look really good too. They give users the choice of a dual quartz coil or a ceramic coil and four temperature settings, so vapers of every experience level should be able to find a setting that suits them. Both are portable-friendly but the slimmer Prism is the more discreet of the two, though its smaller size also means a smaller battery. That’s the main difference between the two, otherwise the Prism and Prism+ are extract vaping (almost) perfected.

KandyPens Prism+ Review

KandyPens Prism+ Background

I’ll just come right out and say that the KandyPens Prism and Prism+ are among the best vape pens around. Yes I know that there are dozens, if not hundreds, maybe even thousands of vape pens on the market, but even so, these manage to stand out. Some of the reasons include their choice of two different atomizers and their sleek design.

The main differences between them is that the Prism+ is the thicker of the two, has a larger battery and costs more, $127.99 compared to $97.99 for the Prism. Both are available directly from KandyPens and you should use our exclusive KandyPens coupon code TVG25 for a 25% discount. You can find out which of the two options is better for you in my KandyPens Prism+ review, but I can tell you right now that you can’t go wrong with either of them.

Their Design

KandyPens Prism concentrate vaporizer review

The Prism (left) is slimmer than the Prism+ (right), and has a smaller battery, but is similar in every other way.

Both the Prism and the Prism+ are just about four inches tall and very light, making them both highly portable, yes, even the wider Prism+. You just have to be careful about their exposed resin mouthpieces when they’re being transported since they can get dirty if you’re not careful. They both have a smooth, stainless steel finish that looks and feels terrific. They are available in black or white finishes, both look great, but I prefer the black, it just looks like it means business, whereas the white looks a little clinical.

I also prefer the Prism because of its slimmer profile which feels better in my hand. The Prism+ feels good too, I’m sure many will prefer its thicker grip and you won’t hear me tell them that they’re wrong. They might also like the LED lights on the side that light up as they vape, a feature that the Prism lacks, however, they might dislike how those lights attract attention, so it’s a toss-up.

As with most vape pens, they use a simple one button interface that’s easy to get a hang of. They also have their USB ports on their base, this means that you can’t stand them upright while they’re charging. It does mean that you can hold them while they’re charging, which is good since pass through charging enables you to vape as they charge. Nice.

Their Performance

KandyPens Prism concentrate vape review

The dual quartz coils (left) heat up faster and produce more intense vapor than the ceramic coil (right), which delivers cooler, smoother vapor.

The Prism comes with two coils, each of which offers great, but very different, performance. The dual quartz coils heat up fast and produce big clouds and strong flavor, but might be a little too intense for newcomers. The ceramic coil produces rich, flavorful vapor that is cooler and milder than that produced by the quartz coils. Needless to say, I preferred the ceramic, the vapor felt richer and had stronger flavor notes.

They both give you four temperature selections to choose from, ranging from 320°F up to 430°F. I found the middle temperatures of 350°F and 390°F to hit the sweet spot of strong vapor and nice clouds. The higher temperature settings give you bigger clouds and harsher vapor, especially with the dual quartz coils. The resin mouthpiece helps a lot with higher temps since it helps to cool down the vapor before it reaches your mouth. It also has a splash guard so there is never any hot sputtering oil, plus it has practically no draw resistance, so inhaling the vapor is as easy as inhaling air.

The performance is the same between the Prism and Prism+, so in terms of flavor quality they are identical. The big difference—aside from size—is battery life, the Prism+ has a 900 mAh battery and the Prism has a 320 mAh battery, no guesses as to which one lasts longer. The Prism does have an edge in that it can use a lightning cable port, which gives it more charging versatility over its bigger brother. Both have pass-through capability, so you can keep vaping while they’re charging.

The Last Word

Did I already mention that the Prism and Prism+ are two of the Top Vape Pens on the market right now? I’m pretty sure I did, but just in case, I’m saying it again. Their flavor quality, style and simplicity put them in the top tier of extract vaporizers along with vapes like the Puffco Plus and Atmos Electro Dabber.

As if that wasn’t enough, they offer a choice of two different coils and four temperature settings, which gives them a greater degree of personalized customization than most vape pens on the market. If you’re a fan of vaping wax, then you need to give the Prism or Prism+ a shot, yes they’re more expensive than other wax vapes, but I guarantee that they will be the last wax vapes you ever need to buy.
