Utillian remains consistent with their designs and innovations as they release new vaporizers such as the Utillian 620 (Review | Buy) and the new Utillian 722 (Review | Buy) that performs well for its price. They continue to improve and use the latest technology available to make vaporizers that have the balance of quality and affordability.
Utillian introduced themselves in the wax concentrates by creating their first wax pen, Utillian 5. It’s a mid-tier vaporizer that matches its durability with performance. It has a long battery life, interchangeable coils, and adjustable airflow that’s primarily built for one reason—massive cloud production.
Design & Features
The 5 is a standard looking vape pen that has a single power button, a mouthpiece on top, and a USB port on the side of the device. It has a solid and rugged design, and a bit bigger than most wax pens around. But still, it’s portable enough to carry around and put into your pocket. It has a stainless steel exterior with either a matte black or titanium gold finish that looks classy. It’s kind of hefty but also sturdy and the parts feel tough and durable.
The Utillian 5 features an adjustable airflow located underneath the mouthpiece that allows control of the draw resistance. Increasing the airflow will cause air to pass through the oven resulting in cooler, less dense vapor. While decreasing the airflow will produce bigger clouds and tastier vapor. It’s a pretty nice additional feature for a wax pen within its price range.
The interchangeable coils are a nice feature for this vaporizer. It’s one of the key factors to affect its performance. There are two coils that you can choose from:
- Twisted Kanthal Coil: suitable for small loads that are enough for solo sessions. It produces more flavor and fewer clouds.
- Triple Titanium Coil: can hold up to 0.3g of wax and suitable for bigger loads. It produces less flavor and massive clouds.
Both coils have black ceramic rods instead of quartz, which is a pretty common coil type for extract vaporizers. The black ceramic rod allows the wax to soak and not to slip into the bottom of the oven, resulting in efficient vapor production.
How To Use
The 5 is a straightforward device with a simple one-button interface. It does not have precise temperature controls but it has 4 voltage settings: 2.2V, 2.4V, 2.6V, and 2.8V.
- Remove the mouthpiece.
- To change the coil, twist the coil and replace it with the selected coil.
- Dab your wax on to the coils and then replace the mouthpiece.
- Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
- Select one of the preset voltage settings by pressing the power button twice.
- Twist the airflow ring to adjust the draw resistance.
- Hold the power button to begin the heating process.
- Inhale from the mouthpiece once heating is complete.
Cleaning and Maintenance: I recommend cleaning the vaporizer regularly because the wax is a little stickier and harder to clean than dry herbs. The mouthpiece, chamber, and atomizer can be easily removed and cleaned with pre-soaked alcohol wipes.
Performance & Vapor Quality
No matter which atomizer you choose from, you’ll be getting intense vapor and big clouds. If you still want some flavor, you should use the Kanthal coil because you’ll get some flavor as long as you choose one of the two lower settings. Now, if you like big clouds that hit hard, then the triple titanium coil is for you. This coil delivered some of the biggest, harshest vapor I’ve experienced in a while.
The Utillian 5 uses a 1050 mAh battery which is pretty big to its comparable wax pens like Puffco Plus (Review | Buy) or Dr Dabber Stella (Review | Buy). Normally, 900 mAh is pushing the upper reaches of vape pen batteries, but the 5 surges past those limits.
The 5 might not be much of a looker, but it certainly functions well. It can give you the strong and fog-like vapor that you won’t usually experience in inexpensive vape pens but a bit overwhelming for beginners. This is recommended for vapers who prefer big clouds over flavor. However, if you prioritize flavor and prefer your experience milder, I suggest that you go for a slow-burn vaporizer like the KandyPens Crystal (Review | Buy).
