Despite the seemingly overnight popularity of vaporizer pens, the industry is still in its relative infancy. New products are being introduced into the marketplace at an exponential rate by new companies, many of which do not yet have a solid reputation. As a result, consumers may feel adrift when it comes to which vape companies they feel like they can trust.
Despite the confusion, however, one company in particular has emerged as both a reliable and revolutionary manufacturer of vaporizer products: Yocan. Through an assortment of both dry herb and wax vape pen products, a review of Yocan’s products reveals that the company has established itself as a bona fide industry leader in the field of vaporization.
One of the most ingenious vaporizers to emerge since the invention of the vape pen, the iShred brings dry herb vaping to a whole other level.
The dry-herb-only iShred is what vaporization enthusiasts would refer to as a “true” vaporizer. Many vape pens these days still rely upon heating coils that essentially burn the dry herbs or wax in its heating chamber. This method -- commonly referred to as combustion -- places the substance directly into contact with the vaporizer’s heating element that produces smoke for the user to imbibe.
Vaporizers like the iShred take a different approach. Instead of burning the dry herbs, the iShred instead pushes hot air through them. The air then absorbs the compounds within the dry herbs and becomes vapor, resulting in a more efficient and healthy method of consuming dry herbs. This heating method is called Convection vaping. If you want to learn more, read our blog post about understanding the difference between combustion, conduction and convection vaping.
The vaporization method is only part of what makes the iShred a world-class vaporizer. The atomizer in which the dry herbs are placed is 100 percent ceramic, ensuring that the vapor that is produced is flavorful and lacking in the metallic taste that often accompanies vapor that is produced from stainless steel atomizers.
The iShred also features a top-of-the-line temperature control that allows the consumer to set the vape pen’s temperature anywhere from 200° to 460°F. This feature ensures that the user will be able to fully customize their vaping experience to suit their preferences.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, the iShred also comes equipped with a built-in dry herb grinder and kief catcher, a godsend to any dry herb fan who has found themselves in a literal sticky situation.
The Yocan Pandon is one of the Best Wax Vape Pens. This is because the Pandon features not one, not two, but four quartz rod coils. For some context, just one quartz rod coils would be sufficient in yielding a comfortable amount of wax vapor.
But that’s not all. While the four coils themselves are revolutionary, they are contained within special plus-sized heating chambers. The largeness of the wax atomizers is such that -- when filled with shatter and powered by the Pandon's formidable 1300 mAh battery -- the vape pen is able to emit astronomical amounts of wax vapor. Just be warned: This is likely the most powerful single vaporizer pen on this list and is not for the faint of heart.
Though small in size, this wax atomizer packs a heck of a punch.
The Yocan Cerum is a detachable wax atomizer that is compatible with multiple batteries, including those that are not made by Yocan. The Cerum’s heating chamber -- equipped with two quartz rod coils -- is massive for a wax atomizer, allowing consumers to fill it with monstrous amounts of wax that can ultimately yield larger hits than is possible for almost any other vaporizer.
There are a few caveats to bear in mind when using the Cerum. For starters, the Cerum is 510-threaded, meaning that it is only compatible with batteries that also have 510 threading. (Among these products are the SteamCloud and Kamry box mod.)
Also important to be mindful of the fact that the Cerum is only functional with batteries that are above a certain power level. It will not function when it is paired with smaller batteries, such as the 280mah 510 thread stylus battery.
It instead works best with the two aforementioned box mods, which provide a great jolt of power that yield a greater amount of vapor than almost any other battery-atomizer combo. (Just be careful: The ideal wattage at which to heat the Cerum when using a box mod is anywhere from 15-25 watts; anything more will likely cause damage to the atomizer.)
If there is one drawback to the Cerum, it is that its cap and heating chamber are simply able to pop on and off. A more secure design would have made these components screw on and off.
Vaporizer fans will not be strangers to the Yocan Evolve Plus -- it remains the best-selling wax vape pen on all of Vape Vet Store.
There are several likely reasons for this phenomenon, starting with its atomizer. The Evolve Plus features a huge heating chamber, anchored by two quartz rod coils that provide the best vapor flavor and instant vaporization. (The Yocan Evolve Plus Coils are so sought-after that they are also sold by themselves.)
Second, there is the vape pen’s battery power. The Evolve Plus' battery capacity is at the higher end of the battery-power scale -- 1100 mAh, to be exact -- meaning that it is both long-lasting and capable of delivering enough power to vape sizable amounts of wax at any given time.
There is also the crucial issue of convenience. Many vaporizers on the market these days tend to be bulky and not amenable to being carried around in a person’s pocket. The Evolve Plus, on the other hand, is lightweight and among the smaller wax vape pens out there, especially when taking its vaping power into account.
Finally, there is the ultimate added bonus: The Evolve Plus features a built-in silicone jar for storing shatter or wax. This saves on the inconvenience of toting around a separate wax container and ensures that the consumer will have everything they need all in one place.
Yocan evidently made sure not to leave out fans of dry herbs. This attachment -- which is compatible with the standard 510-threaded battery kit -- features specially-designed Yocan 94F dry herb coils that are designed to last anywhere from 4-6 weeks, depending on the rate at which they’re used.
Fans of convection vaporization should note: The Yocan 94F relies on combustion vaporization, meaning that the dry herbs are essentially burned rather than vaporized. If you use glass screen filters in the dry herb atomizer, you will prevent combustion and get more vapor out of your vape pen.

The Yocan Torch is among the most highly-regarded portable dabbing accessories in the industry, due in large part to its convenience. The dab rig accessory -- which is one-half battery and one-half atomizer -- streamlines the entire dabbing process.
Instead of lighting the nail with the typical blowtorch, the piece lights by itself and can yield around 45 puffs before needing to be refilled. This is the perfect piece for that dab aficionado who nonetheless finds the whole process to be tiresome and inconvenient.
To Sum Up: Yocan offers a wide variety of portable vaporizer products that are likely to cater to any vape or dab enthusiasts’ preferences. If you have any further questions about Yocan products and their compatibility, please reach out to our support team so we can answer your questions.
