The Kind Pen Dream Review
TVG reviews products
The Good: Glass mouthpiece cools down the vapor | Adjustable airflow | Large battery capacity
The Bad: Touch sensor is awkwardly positioned | Glass mouthpiece gets dirty quickly | Vapor quality is just decent
The Bottom Line: I found the Kind Pen Dream to be a solid performer because it delivers good—but not great—vapor quality and has a glass mouthpiece, an option I always like. My main problem with it is the strangely placed touch sensor and the fact that the mouthpiece gets dirty very quickly. Those qualities make it a slightly above-average vape pen rather than an outstanding one.

Design and Features
General Design: The Dream is a little thicker than most vape pens and it has a big glass mouthpiece on top. There aren’t too many vape pens that look like this, so it does stand out. One of the Dream’s big features is that it has a touch sensor on its base instead of a standard button somewhere on the body of the pen.
This does give it a smooth look with no protrusions, but it also makes the Dream a little more awkward to use. The problem isn’t the touch sensor itself, but rather its placement, because you need to hold it down while you vape. That means you need to hold it in a very strange way that takes some getting used to. You do get used to it but I have to wonder why they made that design decision since it doesn’t really benefit the Dream in any way.
The mouthpiece is attached to the battery via a gasket rather than by threads, but despite this, it sits on the battery rather firmly. One of the worries about this type of attachment is that it might be too loose, but that’s not the case here. The mouthpiece doesn’t move around at all once it is attached to the battery. The Dream also has an easily adjustable airflow that allows users to further customize their vaping experience.
Portability: Despite its somewhat thicker girth compared to other vape pens, the Dream isn’t too difficult to carry around. It just about fits into most pockets and will easily fit into a purse or a backpack. The glass mouthpiece is exposed though, so you need to be careful so that it doesn’t break or get too dirty.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The mouthpiece can get dirty rather quickly so it will need cleaning fairly often. Since you also need to clean the atomizers on a regular basis as well, the Dream can be a pretty high maintenance wax vape.
Mouthpiece: You clean it by soaking the whole thing in isopropyl alcohol until the residue dissolves and then rinsing it out with warm water afterward.
Atomizers: They are cleaned using a cotton swab or q-tip soaked in iso alcohol that is then run around the inside of the atomizer. That will get rid of any excess residue in the atomizer.
How to Use
- Remove the mouthpiece to expose the coils.
- Dab your wax onto the coil and then replace the mouthpiece.
- Press the touch sensor five times to turn on the device.
- Tap the touch sensor three times to cycle through the temperature settings.
- Once heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece while touching the sensor.
Temperature Settings: 350°F | 390°F | 430°F
Performance and Vapor Quality
Vaporizer Performance: The Dream heats up pretty quickly and is easy to use, but there are some issues. One of them is that the glass mouthpiece gets dirty very quickly and requires a lot of cleaning. The other is that there is no tactile feedback from the touch sensor, so you can’t be sure that you activated it or not. The only indicator you get is the light illuminating on the base of the battery, which isn’t exactly convenient.
Vapor Quality: The vapor is better with the ceramic coil rather than the dual quartz coils for me. That’s mainly because the dual quartz coils are a little too intense and I prefer my vapor to be more on the smooth side. That being said, the dual quartz coils aren’t as strong here as they are in other vape pens, so the vapor isn’t too harsh when using them.
Nonetheless, the perfect setup for me is the ceramic coil on the middle-temperature setting with the airflow wide open. The vapor quality is good, but not as good as I was expecting, I would say it’s about mid-tier in terms of flavor. The airflow is good but even when it is wide open, it feels a little restrictive. It’s not as free flowing as I would like, but I wasn’t disappointed either.
Battery Performance: The Dream has a 1500 mAh battery that lasts for about an hour and takes two to three hours to charge. That means you can vape for a day or two before you need to worry about a recharge.
Kind Pen Dream vs KandyPens Prism+ vs Puffco Plus
The Prism+ is the larger of the two Prism models and is the one that is most comparable to the Dream in terms of size, plus it also has a glass mouthpiece. The Plus is one of the better vape pens around and it has the neat feature of a dab tool built into the mouthpiece. That feature also makes it one of the most convenient vape pens around. The Plus also has much higher temperature settings than the other two, however, unlike them, it only has one type of coil.

The Kind Pen Dream is a decent vape pen for the price. It has a pretty big battery but the vapor quality is just okay regardless of which coil you use. Also, the touch sensor is awkwardly placed, which makes the Dream a little harder to use than other vape pens. The Dream isn’t a bad vape pen, but there are better choices available for a similar price.
Who is it for: Vapers who want a decently affordable vape pen that can last for a long time.
Who is it NOT for: Anyone who wants top-tier flavor quality.
