Welcome to our review of the KandyPens Gravity!

The entire KandyPens lineup has always enjoyed a relatively high profile, thanks to a sleek design, good branding, and a healthy dose of appearances in the hands of celebrities. The Gravity is no exception and seems to be a hit with most users.

Others have called it the best pen of 2016, and it commands a premium price when you compare it to other units with similar features. We can’t help but wonder if it actually lives up to the hype.

Today we’re going to take a good, hard look at what the Gravity offers to see if it deserves its top-dog status.

Product Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Good vapor quality
  • Portable
  • 4 temperature settings

Product Cons

  • Average battery
  • Premium price, average overall quality

 

KandyPens Gravity Review: Breakdown 

Quality

Build Quality

Build Quality

I think this is a well built device with a nice set of features, but I don’t think there’s enough going on here to justify the premium price that this commands. There isn’t anything remarkable about this pen. Every last feature can be found in other pens, and there are actually a lot out there that deliver more versatility with a greater range of atomizer options for less of an investment.

The design is very nice, I’ll give it that. The Gravity has a sand-blasted matte black finish and a curvy exterior that gives it an attractive appearance. No complaints about any of this, and I would guess this is why people love it so much.

The two atomizers that are included are also well built. The first is made of quartz and features two rods and coils. The second is made of ceramic and is the coilless dish/plate style.

The battery is only 650mAh. While it performs better than a lot of pen-style concentrate vapes, this is still relatively small compared to what’s possible. You do get four different temperature settings to choose from, which allows you to adjust your experience based on your vapor preferences. This will get the job done, but it’s certainly nothing special.

Vapor Quality

You can expect good vapor production from the Gravity. The dual quartz rod option was a fan-favorite in the KandyPens Galaxy, and it seems to perform just as well here. I thought that both flavor and vapor production were great using this atomizer.

The ceramic plate was a bit of a let down. It wasn’t bad, but this design normally excels on flavor. My experience suggested it wasn’t much different than the flavor the other option delivered, though it did use less wax.

The KandyPens Galaxy had three temperature settings, but the Gravity has a fourth option on the low end of the spectrum. This lower temp is great for people looking to maximize flavor, though vapor density will be minimal. If you want stronger hits, opt for one of the higher two settings.

look-and-feel

Look and Feel

Again, this is where the Gravity really excels. This looks like a premium vape, even if it isn’t exactly built like one. The exterior is sleek, simple, and attractive. It’s only available in matte black, but the LED indicator light gives a splash of color. The exterior is ever-so-slightly curved, but it’s enough to visually set it apart from most other pen-style units.

Discreetness

Discreetness

Most pen-style vaporizers are great when it comes to discretion, and this is no exception. You can easily conceal most of it in your hand while using it, and the exterior doesn’t look much different from a pen-style e-cig to onlookers.

If want to maximize how discreet you are, I recommend using the ceramic dish atomizer on the lowest heat setting. This will still extract all the desired botanicals, but visual vapor and smells will be kept to a minimum.

Difficulty

Ease of Use

This is beginner friendly. With only one button, there isn’t much to learn in order to use this. Click the button five times to turn it on, then another three if you want to change the temperature. Temperature levels are indicated by the color of the light behind the button, with pink being the lowest and blue being the hottest. The exact levels are:

  • Pink = 300°
  • Red = 350°
  • Green = 390°
  • Blue = 430°

The quartz atomizer does have a relatively deep dish, and it can be difficult to get your wax properly placed on the coils. If you are having this problem, remember to take your time because you don’t want to break anything. You may have better luck with the coilless dish option.

Portability

Portability

This is a very portable device, but so is every other wax pen. You can easily carry the Gravity in your pocket or a bag, and there isn’t anything on it that you’ll need to worry about breaking easily.

The battery life could be better, but you do get a convenient case to carry everything in. If you are worried about running out of battery life, just remember to put your charger in the case and take everything with you.

Conclusion

This KandyPens Gravity is a good wax pen. It features an attractive design and delivers good vapor production. I have no major complaints, except for the fact that it’s positioned as a premium unit that all others pens must look up to.

In reality, it’s exactly like every other pen on the market.

There isn’t a single feature that can’t be found elsewhere for cheaper. If you already have a concentrate vaporizer that you like, you probably won’t find anything special about this.

If you have the money to spend, I don’t see any reason that you wouldn’t like this. Beginners will especially like that it’s easy to use and looks nice in your hand.

But I also think you’d like cheaper options just as much. The ZEUS Thunder 2 is one option that comes to mind, and the coilless atomizer that it uses performs better than the one in this kit. If you want more versatility, look to the SOURCE Orb 4.
