Whether you’re vaping herb, concentrate, or oils, there’s a vape pen out there for you. If you’re old school and prefer to stick to flower, the KandyPens K-Vape Pro may be exactly what you’re looking for. It’s an entry-level herbal vape pen that does one thing and does it well, without all the bells and whistles. Of course, that doesn’t mean they skipped on safety features, like a 5-minute auto-shutoff.
And be sure to thank Vapor.com for providing this KandyPens K-Vape Pro and several other vape pens for me to test this month. It’s the marketplace to find all the top vaping brands at affordable prices. And if you’re looking for affordable, K-Vape Pro is only $100, making it a great entry-level into the world of herbal vaping.
Let’s dig into what makes the KandyPens K-Vape Pro portable vape pen worth the money.
KandyPens K-Vape Pro Design and Accessories
Even though it’s a mostly bare-bones design, the K-Vape Pro does come with a basic micro-USB charging cable, instruction booklet, and an extra glass mouthpiece. The body itself has an anodized aluminum shell that feels sturdy in your hand. Its cylindrical shape is similar in look to the c-cell batteries and tanks used by nicotine ejuice vapers, but inside is a ceramic chamber capable of holding up to .5 grams of your favorite herb.
The brushed-metal look and all-black everything (aside from the crystal-clear mouthpiece) gives it an elegant look lacking from most KendyPens, which tend toward bright colors more meant for a kid’s Legos than an adult’s vape pen. One-button clicking turns it on, off, and switches between the four available heat settings. Overall, it’s a basic pen, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The K-Vape Pro uses a combination of convection and conduction heating to ensure your herb is evenly heated. It also offers pass-through charging, so when the battery dies, you can hook up a USB battery bank to keep vaping while it charges.
KandyPens K-Vape Pro Usability and Functionality
Loading the K-Vape Pro is easy enough. The cap comes off with a little twist and pull. And the mouthpiece didn’t fall off when I dropped on concrete to test (although I can see how it could. I was impressed I didn’t even get a chip, but I know from my indestructible glass pipe that chips and nicks can happen. Click it five times, and the LEDs (including the K logo) light up to let you know the status.
The 1100 mAh battery lasts about a little over an hour of steady usage, depending on the heat settings used. And I got a decent draw from it, nowhere near the power of the Airvape X or a portable water vape, like the Dr. Dabber Switch, but still respectable and in line with the DaVinci Miqro and a few others. Cleaning was relatively simple, and I really like the look and feel of the thick glass mouthpiece
KandyPens K-Vape Pro Final Thoughts
KandyPens K-Vape Pro is a competent entry-level herbal vape pen. It lacks many of the bells and whistles of higher-priced brands like customized control, bluetooth/app connectivity, and the ability to vape oils and concentrates. With that said, at $100, it’s a great utility vape pen to have around for vaping any herbs and flower you want.
The dual-heated ceramic chamber provides even heat distribution, so you won’t waste any of your supply, and it fits easily into your pocket. This isn’t as discrete as portable vapes like the DaVinci IQ, but the price is right for those not looking to break the bank on vape equipment. You can buy an ounce (or two, if you’re good) with the money you save on the K-Vape over its competition.
