Put it at the right battery and put it on the right voltage, and now you will have a strong cartridge again. Definitely in the top 1/3 of carts when it comes to strength when it’s at 4.2V. I’m comparing to other cartridges that I have tried in CA, CO and NV. It’s not the absolute strongest cartridge and if I’m looking for something that is stronger around the same price, I would probably take an AiroPro over this one.
You are getting an extra 100mg with this cartridge but I would just grab and take another cartridge that is slightly better than buying this one. I mention AiroPro because it was available at the same dispensary I picked up this APEX RemPen cart at. You do need an AiroPro battery or UWOW Storm (don’t use an adapter the magnets line up perfectly already) to vape AiroPro carts though. Nothing really special on taste, but in a good way. It doesn’t seem like they’re adding any flavors in here and I prefer that rather than adding fake flavors. However, the distillate itself doesn’t taste spectacular. There are better tasting cartridges that are straight distillate. For example, Roots, Cannavative and one that completely blew us away on taste, the AiroPro Live Flower Series.
Comparing CO to CO from the same purchase batch, APEX RemPen was on par taste-wise with Eureka Vapor, but behind Javelina. APEX RemPen cartridge is pretty efficient, with the right battery. If you are using a standard battery the whole time of this cartridge, you will really think that this is not efficient because you will never get a strong hit out of it even though it is using the oil up to the last drop. We should note that the intake holes on this are much smaller than there are on most of the batteries. Personally, I think larger intake holes are better and small intake holes are often the reason why you’re not getting a strong hit out of your cartridge. But if you have the right battery on the right voltage, efficiency is pretty good and this oil does really last a long time. It vapes slowly as you would expect from this thick of THC oil. If you have a crappy battery it’s gonna puff for a while. But if you have a good battery, its gonna give a better hit and still puff for a while. You’re also getting a lot of puffs than normal because there’s 600mg in here instead of the usual 500mg, which gives you a bit extra. Value is there but could be better with different hardware. If they give this a better piece of hardware, this will definitely be of better value. You don’t really know the full potential of this oil until you put it in some type of standardized hardware that hits really good. We already know that this cartridge doesn’t hit very well without the right battery, so that does take it ours from its value. You need to have the proper battery in order to get a better hit. At the price of $40 plus tax, there are other options available that have a better value. For example, in Nevada, a Cannavative cartridge is also $40 at Tsaa Nesunkwa Dispensary in Ely. Cannavative cartridges are stronger, taste better and use CCELL’s glass cart hardware. They come 100mg less, but I rather take less to have an overall better cartridge. Compared to a lot of other brands though Apex is way better. I would take an APEX RemPen over a Cookies cartridge any day, even though they do use the same CCELL cart hardware Cannavative does. In fact, this in a way proves the APEX RemPen has great oil, just needs better hardware.
Concluding our APEX RemPen review… Overall, the APEX RemPen vape is good. It hits well with the right battery but seems weak otherwise. It’s nice that they have included and extra 100mg but I rather just have better hardware than have the extra 100mg. I also would like to see this oil in a syringe if they don’t have it already and test it out on a CCELL cartridge. APEX RemPen cart is an example of a company trying to go unique with the hardware and it’s not working out so well. The piece of hardware doesn’t seem that it would be much cheaper based on the construction of it, which seems like high-quality parts. My recommendation would be to switch this oil over to a CCELL, SPRK or other types of hardware that hits better. We’d love to hear all about it in the comments below or check out our forum. Not too impressed with the Sour Diesel but overall great product. I have chronic pain from a botched operation, severe depression, CFS, nerve damage.
