Yocan Evolve Plus XL Background
The Yocan Evolve Plus XL Review ($59.95 from Yocan Vaporizer) is the latest product from Yocan. It is the updated version of the Evolve Plus. Although similar to the Evolve Plus at first look, it’s a bit bigger and has a couple of extra features. Let’s dive in and take a close look!
Yocan Evolve Plus XL Review Design and Features
It is powered by 1400 mAh battery with a standard micro USB cable charging. One of the improvements of the Evolve Plus XL over the Evolve Plus is the magnetic connection between the battery and the mouthpiece. This can easily take it off to reload the device. It also features an adjustable airflow intake so you can hit it how you like. On the bottom, same as the Evolve Plus is a compartment to store your concentrates, except this time the whole jar comes off with a lid and has two separate compartments inside.
The most important part is the coil inside and how well it works with the battery. As you might have spotted from the photos so far, it uses a quad quartz coil combination. Initially, this did worry me, as I’m not a big fan of quartz. I’m more of a ceramic donut person and as of now, Yocan doesn’t have any plans for ceramic coils for this device.
Using the Yocan Evolve Plus XL Review
Loading the device seems like a bit of a task if you do it the way I did. You can either put a big glob of shatter in the middle or load it like I did, putting a few small balls on the coils. It does seem to hold quite a bit of shatter as the air holes are pretty high up. Hitting the device is as easy as any device though, just click the button and go.
Yocan Evolve Plus XL Review Performance
This thing is capable of putting out some serious clouds, but it hits pretty damn hot. I can’t take hits any bigger than other wax pens just because of how hot it feels in my throat. The coils get hot really fast as well, so make sure to pulse the button or you’ll be burning your oil. Flavour-wise, it’s okay. The first hit came off as tasty, as you would expect from any fresh coil, but subsequent hits on the device tasted slightly burnt. The oil seems to pool below the coils and that causes the coils to get red hot within a few seconds if you’re not careful. This could be fixed by loading a larger amount of concentrate but I didn’t want to just add a huge chunk my first time with the device.
This is probably a good device if you like quartz coils and want something that can hold a lot of concentrate at once (especially with the built-in jar that holds about 1g). However, it’s not my personal favorite as I still prefer ceramic donuts and loading smaller amounts. Despite that, the clouds can put out hit me like a horse in a way that my regular pen can’t match, but not quite as hard as an actual rig.
