Yocan Hive 2.0 Review: Breakdown

What are you expecting from a device which you can pick up for sixty bucks? Upon holding the vaporizer, you might not be assured of its quality but the truth is that if you take care of it, the odds of the Yocan Hive 2.0 breaking are slim. We’ve seen Yocan before and one thing is for – they build decent vapes.

There are two interchangeable atomizers. One for e-juice and one or concentrates, they connect and disconnect seamlessly with magnetic connectors allowing you to simply pop them off.

A small percentage of buyers have reported problems with the juice chamber, specifically that the coil breaks extremely quickly.

Three voltage settings allow you to take the hit that you want to take. Each level serves the expected purpose. The lowest setting produces minimal vapor and gives the user a very light hit, the medium voltage offers significantly more vapor and was the level we found ourselves most comfortable with.

The highest voltage was considerably stronger but nothing that would knock your socks off. This unit is perfect for casual vaping at a concert or in bed.

Design

look-and-feel

Look and Feel

Aesthetically, the Yocan Hive 2.0 is an attractive vape. It comes in six different colors, all of which are bright and striking. This gives it a fun look and a little extra personality.

In the hand, it feels light and cool to the touch this is always pleasant when dealing with devices that can get red hot.

Discreetness

Discreetness

If there’s one thing that the Yocan Hive 2.0 excels in – it’s being discreet. This dinky vaporizer is 29x79mm. That’s so small that it can be easily palmed wherever you go and nobody would ever need to know.

Pair that with the ultralight vapor which is produced on the lowest voltage and you have yourself an affordable, portable hitter that can be brought anywhere.

Difficulty

Ease of Use

Intuitive is the word. Five clicks turn it on, five clicks turn it off and a rapid double-click changes the heat settings. Picking up the Yocan Hive 2.0 you will not have any problems figuring out the controls, although the device packs a considerable amount of features, it is – at its heart – a budget machine with usability galore.

The two atomizers that come with this vape snap on and off easily thanks to the magnetic connector. There are no worries about spilling or leaking either, the design is clever enough to help avoid any messy accidents.

Portability

Portability

There is nowhere you can’t put the Yocan Hive 2.0. It’s so small that you would struggle to find somewhere that it doesn’t fit. Skinny jeans?

No problem. The device will slide effortlessly into any pocket, any handbag or briefcase that you need it to which is a huge advantage for a device which holds its own amongst larger and more expensive vaporizers.

Conclusion

If you’ve been umming and ahhing about dipping your toes into the world of concentrates then this is truly a perfect starting point. The small price matches the size of the unit which means you won’t be out of pocket if you decide to try vaping and don’t like it. The Yocan Hive 2.0 keeps up with more established concentrate vaporizers offering most of the features they do in a budget format.

The three ascending heat levels were not spectacular but far from disappointing and did what you would expect them to. If you need an ultra-portable, entry level vape then you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the Yocan Hive 2.0.
