Speaking of money, at the time of writing the G Pen vaporizer was on sale for $49.95. This not only includes the dual quartz coil upgrade, but you also get a G Tool, Wall Adaptor, two glass containers, three cleaning tips, and a G Pen wired USB Charger. In our opinion, that’s one of the best deals in the industry. The Grenco G Pen still has the gorgeous all-black design with a stainless-steel exterior. It does, however, seem somewhat outdated because of its relatively basic heating system (even if there’s a lot to be said for pressing a button and being ready to vape in seconds).
Overall, it is an easy device to use because of the one-button interface, and it was clearly designed with beginners in mind. Unlike Grenco’s latest models which have permanent heating chambers, though, the G Pen uses a dual quartz coil that needs to be replaced every 6-8 weeks . This is a potentially major inconvenience if you’re not akin to things like maintenance (and what stoner is?). Also, the heating oven is extremely small and probably not large enough to satisfy experienced weed users. We were only able to extract a maximum of four draws from a full chamber, which isn’t enough unless you’re using a super potent strain. On the plus side, though, you get a lot of “kit for your cash” including the handy spatula-like G Tool which does an excellent job of loading up the messy concentrate material. There are also a couple of glass containers that you can use for loading your favorite shatter or butter , and Grenco clearly states that the original G Pen is not intended for use with ground-up flower!
The charging dock on the G Pen allows you to charge your unit on any USB port, or via the usual outlet plug. The 900 mAh battery can last for up to two hours of continuous use, and it takes a couple of hours to charge a dead battery all the way up. Also, as the G Pen is roughly the size of a ballpoint pen, it is super easy to conceal. Another interesting feature of the OG Grenco G Pen is its compatibility with both the ZEUS Bolt Grinder and the ZEUS Iceborn . The Bolt Grinder allows you to vaporize kief , or the ‘dust’ material that’s found in your grinder’s lower chamber. (In other words it ensures that you use every last piece of your weed, which should help you save money in the long run). All you have to do is collect the dust, add a small drop of water and create a little ball using your finger. The result is tiny dust balls that make for an exceptional experience when vaporized with the G Pen. The Grenco G Pen is an ideal unit for beginners because there is no temperature control or settings to adjust. Remove the mouthpiece and you’ll see a small hole in the center of the opening. Hold the power button and you’ll see a small red light glowing, this is where you can put in your wax or concentrate. After adding your mix, replace the mouthpiece and hold the button for up to four seconds. Once you’re finished using the device, press the power button five times to lock it. Otherwise, there’s a danger that it will begin to heat in your pocket! You can use the device again after pressing the button five more times. The vapor quality of the G Pen doesn’t compare favorably to the later Grenco models, although it does produce decent clouds for the price. If you want better vapor, you’ll want to consider investing in the ZEUS Iceborn as it is compatible with the G Pen and helps it produce larger clouds and cooler draws when connected to the vaporizer. It uses ice cooling rather than water filtration which means excellent efficiency and smooth, crisp draws. When it was initially released, the G Pen was one of the kings of the hill. As time has passed, though, the device is looking increasingly dated. It does not allow for temperature control, for example, and the fact that you need to spend $14.95 every 6-8 weeks for a replacement coil is a major drawback that takes away some of the vaporizer’s value for the money. Even so, the G Pen vaporizer still represents an excellent starter unit as it is relatively inexpensive and should help you decide if you prefer vaping over smoking. (You could also look at an upgrade such as the Snoop Dogg G Pen) . Doesn’t have a large enough capacity to satisfy experienced users. The Grenco G Pen Gio is the latest Grenco Science release, and it is something completely different. Industry experts have suggested that the Gio vaporizer is the future of cannabis oil , wax, and concentrates.
The hype surrounding the new release began in July 2017 when Wiz Khalifa and Berner shared a video on Facebook using the futuristic-looking device, which pretty much caused the greater weed-loving internet community to go bonkers. Of course, then, when the Gio was finally unveiled to the masses at the 2017 Emerald Cup, it sold out in a matter of hours. While the majority of vaporizers work with dry herb, the G Pen Gio runs on disposable oil cartridges. It comes with a micro USB charging cable and is available for just $29.95. Grenco is taking advantage of the pre-filled oil cartridge craze and is attempting to position itself as a leader in the field. As these are pre-filled, though, there is the irritating issue of marijuana laws to contend with.
As a consequence, only residents of Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Illinois, Maryland, Florida, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Colorado are allowed to purchase the Gio at the time of writing. The device is made from a zinc alloy which means it is exceedingly tough while the sleek, ergonomic design means it is far more aesthetically pleasing than its rivals in the market. It is approximately the size of an e-cigarette, which means it’s a winner in terms of portability. The 180 mAh battery offers surprisingly long life – you can get around 100 or so puffs before it starts to drain, and the battery charges from completely dead to 100% in less than two hours. While this is impressive for a device this size, it still means you have to plan ahead when traveling.
