Compatibility: The Special K is compatible with liquid extracts and pre-filled CBD and THC oil cartridges. If you’re interested in a similarly priced vaporizer for dry herbs, then you can check out the KandyPens K-Vape Pro instead.
Design and Features
General Design: The Special K is one of those vape pens that looks just like a pen, and a rather high-end one at that. So, you can stick in your front pocket and look all dapper, and no one will be the wiser. The Special K uses a 510 connection, so you just need to screw in the tank you plan to use with it and you’re good to go.
The casing that encloses the oil tank has a little slit that allows you to monitor the level of oil in the tank. So you don’t need to remove the whole thing if you need to know how much oil you have left.
My only issue with this vape pen’s use of 510 connections for everything is that the USB charger uses it too. This means that pass through vaping is impossible, plus having to screw the Special K into a charger takes longer than attaching a regular USB cable would.
Portability: The Special K has the proportions of a pen, which means that it also has the portability of a pen. So it can easily fit into any pocket when you need to take it with you. Using it on the go—or at home—is pretty simple too since you just need to pop the cap off to get going. You’ll need to fill and/or attach the tank beforehand of course, but that is your only worry when transporting the Special K.
How to Use
- Unscrew the pen cap from the casing and then unscrew the casing from the battery.
- Attach a refillable or pre-filled tank to the 510 threads.
- (Optional) Replace the casing so that it conceals the tank.
- Press the power button five times to turn on the vaporizer.
- Press the power button three times to toggle the voltage settings.
- Once heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece.
Voltage Settings: 3.2V | 3.7V | 4.2V
Performance and Vapor Quality
Vaporizer Performance: The Special K only takes three seconds to reach the selected voltage, so you can always take a quick hit of whatever oil you’re using whenever you want.
Vapor Quality: The vapor quality mainly depends on the kind of oil you’re using, especially in pre-filled cartridges. However, the vaporizer does have an effect because it needs to heat the oil to the right temperature to properly vaporize the oil. That is why batteries with multiple voltage settings are ideal because they allow you to choose your own vaping profile.
The lower setting of the Special K provides a smoother, cooler experience, while the upper setting provides a harsher one with more vapor production. The middle setting splits the difference of course. I like the lower setting the most since I prefer great flavor over everything else.
Battery Performance: The Special K has a 650 mAh battery, which is quite good for a vape pen. It can last for days before needing a recharge.
