Lastly, cleaning the unit is a breeze and is something that you’ll maybe only have to do once a week or so, depending on how heavily you use it. In the end, you’ll struggle to find a better portable vaporizer for under $100. The device becomes hot after use on its highest setting.
Models such as the Snoop Dogg G Pro 2.0 Herbal Vaporizer are not very compact. Temperature color scheme is confusing as red is the coldest and blue is the hottest! One of the first things we noticed in our Grenco G Slim vaporizer review is that, you guessed it, the vaporizer is TINY! We knew it would be small, just not 21 grams and 0.3 inches thick small . We suppose that the G Slim is the type of vaporizer they would use in Lilliput if the place existed. In any regard the device has recently been upgraded with a quartz rod and borosilicate chamber, which has led to improved performance over past models.
One of the main benefits of the G Slim vaporizer is its near invisibility. Also, even though the device looks as if it could break at any moment, it is actually made with high-quality materials and thus is surprisingly durable. The heating process takes place in a tank made from ceramics and heat-resistant medical glass, which are both industrial grade materials. The built-in heating element means the G Slim will warm up your ground flower within a few seconds. As you know, vaping is a big improvement on traditional smoking — while the latter has been known to destroy up to 80% of active substances through combustion, the advanced heating techniques of vaporizing ensures that you receive as close to 100% of the raw material as possible. In the end, this means that a little weed can go a long, LONG way. One of the downsides in using something as small and discreet as the Grenco G Slim , though, is that there is no temperature control, which is a bummer if you’re trying to vape like a boss and customize your high . Also, the Lithium-ion battery has a 650 mAh capacity, which is significantly lower than other Grenco Science vaporizers . As a result, you won’t be able to get more than five sessions from a single charge, but that’s more than enough when you consider the size and power of the device. All you have to do is unscrew the silicone rubber mouthpiece, load your herb into the chamber, screw the mouthpiece back on, and hold the button to heat the herb as you vape. It heats the weed in a matter of seconds, so you get the benefit of near-instant hits. Before your first use, though, make sure that you fully charge the battery. You can achieve this by unscrewing the tank from the battery and screwing it into the USB charger. It should go without saying that the vapor quality of the G Slim doesn’t really compare to its larger counterparts like the G Pen and the G Pro . Nonetheless, the vapor quality is fine for what effectively is an electric pipe. All in all, the Grenco G Slim Vape Pen offers exceptional value for the money, especially with the upgraded quartz version available for $24.95. It is easy to use and clean, and you can enjoy a hit within a few seconds of powering it up. Also, the aesthetically pleasing design is something to be noted, as is the discreetness of what the device actually is (in other words unless you’re actively using it, most people will have no idea that it’s paraphernalia for weed consumption ). The Grenco G Pen vaporizer is where it all started for Grenco Science, and while it has updated the original design on several occasions, it is still primarily the same device that Chris Folkerts created all those years ago. While our G Pen vaporizer review disclosed the unfortunate fact that it is no longer a cutting-edge model in the grand scheme of things, we have no hesitations in saying that this is still an excellent, high-quality vaping device. If anything, the passage of time has only ensured it offers extraordinary value for the money. 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!
