Yocan Evolve D Plus Review: Breakdown

Build Quality

Build Quality

Yocan built this unit with the same high-quality metal shell as their other vaporizers. Although the underside is plastic, you can still count on the Evolve D Plus for durability. The power button and bottom (built-in storage jar) are chrome.

The 1100mAh battery is removable, so you can still vape while you charge if you have a replacement. Since it is attached by standard 510 threading, so you can use it with other vaporizers as well!

The worst part of the build quality is the heating chamber, and not because it is poorly built! In fact, the pancake atomizer is well-made for the right kind of material.

For dry herb, not so much. If you do decide to use this for flowers, be prepared for straight combustion.


Vapor Quality

Our biggest issue with the build quality directly affects the vapor quality. Even though the dual coil is extremely powerful, it is in fact too powerful to vaporizer botanicals. As we mentioned earlier, your material will burn. What exactly does this mean for vapor quality?

The answer is huge clouds, but weak flavor. However, the large clouds are actually smoke from the combustion, not vapor! This results in a sore throat, coughing, and choking. This burning destroys almost any flavor.

Even if you wanted to turn down the temperature, you can’t. The Yocan Evolve D Plus is stuck somewhere between 3.2 to 4.2 volts. Since the manufacturer doesn’t tell us our 1 temperature choice, this was our best estimate.

Look and Feel

In terms of personalization, there are 5 colors you can choose from: silver, black, red, blue, and orange. All look like the average eCig vaporizer, and we think the black and silver look classic and classy!

Although not the strongest on the market, the D Plus feels like it will last a long time.



Slightly longer than its predecessor, this Yocan still manages to be a discreet size. It is only 5.5 inches long and 1 inch thick! This is a little bigger than some of the compact vaporizers, but still small enough to easily conceal.

Unfortunately, the discreetness of the size is outweighed by the smell and size of the clouds. Since there is a fair amount of burning, you won’t be able to escape looking like Pig Pen from Charlie Brown! That makes it difficult to hide the scent on yourself.

Ease of Use

If you are at all familiar with vape pens, using the Yocan Evolve D Plus will be like second nature. To make it even easier, there is only 1 button and no customizations. This is a very basic vaporizer.

The first step is to load the large oven with dry herb. Do not crowd the botanicals, or else you will restrict the airflow.

Afterward, use the mouthpiece to tamp down the botanicals. This feature comes in handy later on, as tamping throughout your session can help even the burning. Why? The coil burns from the inside out.

To turn the power on or off, simply press the single button 5 times. This is standard in most vape pens. When you turn the unit on, the heat will automatically start. Wait for the pen to heat up and take a draw!



The Evolve D Plus weighs in at a lightweight.30 pounds.  That combined with the discreet size makes the Evolve D Plus is extremely portable. The outer shell allows you to carry it almost anywhere without worry.

The D will last between 3 and 6 hours, and the replaceable battery allows you to keep vaping on the go.


Overall, we would not recommend the Yocan Evolve D to anyone until they fix their very prominent issues. This vaporizer is from a decent company, but it makes a mess by combusting instead of vaporizing herb. Luckily, there are many other inexpensive, quality vape pens in the sea!

There are tons of vape pens on the market and some for every budget, you may find it helpful to check out our vape pen section where we review the top devices in the industry. One popular device that may be worth looking into fits most budgets is the Thunder 2.
