Yocan is known mostly for their wax pens, but recently they’ve been extending their reach. Lately, their focus has been on multi-use devices. Previously we saw this with the Delux, and now there’s the Evolve 2.0. The Delux was called a 2 in 1, but the legitimacy of that title is debatable. The main unit vaporized wax exclusively, and it basically acted as a dock for the smaller e-liquid pen that stored inside. Yocan really stepped it up with the Evolve 2.0. Best of all, it’s a true 3 in 1. They aren’t playing word games this time. The Evolve 2.0 is a single unit that vaporizes three materials. So without further ado, let’s jump into this review of the Yocan Evolve 2.0.

  • Oil pod is nothing special

 

Yocan Evolve 2.0 Review: Breakdown

Build Quality

The Yocan Evolve 2.0 is better made than the previous Yocan Evolve but that is not saying much. Its metallic construction has a very decent overall feel and reminds us of the flood of pod style vapes that have hit the market, like the Smok Novo. On the Evolve 2.0’s side, near the mouthpiece, there’s a little window that allows you to see the e-liquid level.

That’s a thoughtful inclusion that we really appreciate. This unit includes three pods that also function as mouthpieces. One’s for e-liquid, one’s for oil, and one’s for concentrates.

It works as well as you’d expect a vape pen of this size to work, but it does each material averagely at best. Units like this aren’t competing with mods in terms of vapor production, but it does an okay job, especially for its size. Overall, the build quality is decent for Yocan.

Vapor Quality

The vapor production from the Yocan Evolve 2.0 is average. The e-liquid pod and oil pod are nothing special and the wax pod’s vapor production seemed mediocre at best.

It wasn’t bad, but I expected a little more. I think that the wax pod’s less-impressive results were due to insufficient voltage. It takes a lot more heat to vaporize wax than oil.

On the highest temperature setting, the e-liquid pod produced clouds that surprised me a little. With the wax pod, the highest temperature setting gave me results that I’d typically expect from a medium temperature setting. It makes sense.

Wax’s ideal vaporization temperature is far higher than e-liquid’s, so any set temperature would have a lesser effect on wax. If I could change one thing about this product, I’d give it an extra preset temperature.

look-and-feel

Look and Feel

This unit is sleek, sexy, and feels great in the hand. It’s ergonomically shaped, so it’s easy to grip, and the mouthpiece is soft and comfortable. The window on the top side is obviously useful, but it honestly just looks great.

That window is well-placed right in the middle, and it’s rounded. The symmetry is delightful, and the lines are so clean that I can only assume they were made with precision engineering.

Discreetness

Difficulty

Yocan didn’t deviate from the usual here, and there’s really no need to. Most single-button vaporizers with preset temperatures have been functioning in the same way for years. Five clicks turn it on, and three clicks allow the user to alternate between temperatures.

They’re not reinventing the wheel here, but why fix something that isn’t broken? It works, and because we’ve been doing it for ages, the device is easy to just pick up and use.

Portability

For an e-liquid, oil, or wax vaporizer, this little guy is sleek. It’s very compact and easy to carry around in your pocket. You don’t really even notice it there most of the time. The only drawback is that you’d likely only be able to take one pod were you to go out with this.

The other’s are rather small, and I haven’t had a problem with leaking. Still, I’m not really comfortable carrying them around in my pocket. They’re not leaking now, but they seem a little fragile.

I’d be afraid of the day-to-day wear and tear that it would go through. If I did that, I feel that it would just be a matter of time before one broke and leaked in my pocket.

Portability

Discreetness

Its sleek design and small footprint make it fairly discreet, but it isn’t the most discrete device in the world. The shape of the Evolve 2.0 leaves little to the imagination. It’s clearly a vape pen.

The black Evolve 2.0 is obviously going to be the most discreet. The others are pretty loud, especially the Champagne Gold and Rose Gold variations. Overall, the Yocan Evolve 2.0 is a fairly discreet unit, due entirely to its size. If discretion is a focus, consider the black variant.

Conclusion

This is an average little device at best, but the 3 in 1 option does make in enticing. The wax pod’s cloud production was slightly underwhelming, but that’s my only complaint real complaint besides the other 2 pods being fairly generic. The device is decent-looking and extremely convenient. It’s just that the wax pod is thrown into an ecosystem that’s clearly designed to favor e-liquid and oil.

Obviously, if you get a device dedicated to just one substance you will get better results than a 3 in 1 system like the Yocan Evolve 2.0. The Linx Hypnos Zero, for instance, is better for wax, while the Smok Novo is better for e-liquids.
