KandyPens Prism Vaporizer

The KandyPens Prism, released in 2017, is a new vape pen for wax and oils. This is the smaller of the two Prism models. There is a slightly larger version called the Prism Plus. KandyPens has produced the Prism in a limited edition of only 500 (more will likely become available if they sell out). However, the price is still very reasonable.

KandyPens is one of the most well-branded vape companies. It enjoys a presence in many music videos by top artists. In this article, we'll review how well the Prism performs. We'll look at its build and vapor quality, look and feel, discreteness, portability and ease of use.

KandyPens Prism Vaporizer Review:

Build Quality of the KandyPens Prism

The Prism's build quality is above average for units in this price range. It has an outer casing of medical-grade electro-plated stainless steel. And the package comes with two heating chambers: ceramic and quartz/titanium.

The battery that comes with the Prism is below average. It's actually one of the smaller ones I've seen in a wax pen. The most common battery that comes in low end wax pens is the 650 mAh. The Prism uses a 320 mAh. The battery does however come with a lifetime warranty. Overall, though, for the low price, the unit does have pretty good build quality.

Vapor Quality of the KandyPens Prism

The Prism produces pretty good vapor. And with a price tag of under $100, it's actually pretty impressive. As we mentioned above, the Prism comes with two different style heating chambers. The dual quartz/titanium coils deliver faster more dense vapor hits. The all-ceramic chamber works well for flavor delivery.

The device comes with four preset temperatures: 320°, 350°, 390°, 430°. I preferred the two medium settings with the all-ceramic chamber. The two higher settings worked better with the quartz chamber. The highest was fine, but I feel it may have vaped my herb a little too quickly. So, with the quartz chamber, the third setting was the optimum for me.

Appearance of the Prism

The Prism is available in either black or white models. It’s a good weight and feels more durable than other pens in the same price range. The glass mouthpiece is something I liked. I produces cool smooth vapor and is easy to keep clean.

Discreteness of the Prism by KandyPens

As mentioned earlier, the Prism is the smaller version of the model. The Prism Plus is a bit larger. The compact size of the Prism makes it small enough to fit in most pockets. It's also very easy to conceal in your palm. Black is obviously the more discrete of the two color options.

The Prism's four heat settings is four more than you'll get with most low priced wax pens. This lets you choose a lower heat to cut the amount of visible vapor. Of course the lower the setting, the longer it takes to produce any vapor. But it does give you the option of a quick more-vapor session or a slower less-vapor one. And it's one you won't get with other wax pens under the $100 mark.

Using the Prism

The Prism is a simple device to get used to. It has only one button. To turn the Prism on, you click the button five times. You press it another five times to turn it off. Each of the presets has its own color, which display around the button. Yellow = 320 °F, Green = 350 °F, Red = 390 °F, and Blue = 430 °F. It's simplicity itself!

As with any portable vaporizer, the Prism should be fully charged before it's first used. You should also run it through a session on the highest setting with no material in it. This burns away any leftover materials from the manufacture. It also prevents plastic tainting of the vapor later on.

Both the Prism and the Prism Plus need to be pre-charged before use. Once you've loaded your material and you're ready to go, just hold down the power button. The unit will heat up instantly. You can then start to take slow draws... and enjoy.

Battery and Portability

The Prism has a small less-than-average battery. It would have been nice to see at least a 650 mAh battery. But it seems as if the 350mAh does a pretty good job anyways. The compact size and carry case make this pen easy to tote around wherever you go.

You can use the Prism while charging thanks to its pass-through charging facility. This means you can vape when fully charged or wherever you can plug in.

Final Thoughts on the KandyPens Prism Vaporizer

The Prism is solid and affordable, with above average build and vapor quality. The glass mouthpiece, four heat settings, and two oven chambers make it more than just a simple pen. The Prism Plus is larger and more powerful, and costs a bit more. The Prism is smaller and more compact, making it portable and discreet.
