To say that Snoop Dogg and Grenco Science are well acquainted would be an understatement to say the least. Their partnership is longstanding and has yielded a great many products that Snoop has proudly supported through the many mediums he speaks through. Today we’ll be looking at one of the many products that partnership has yielded to see what is has to offer the vaporizing world.
We are happy to report that Grenco has designed a new “G-Pen” that offers true vaporization, the G-Pen Elite. It’s not as small as previous G-Pen’s but is a huge improvement over their G-Pro. Grenco has followed up their G-Pro Vaporizer with the all-new G-Pen Elite and we are happy to say its a BIG improvement over their past offerings.
Review: Snoop Dogg G Pen Vaporizer
How It Works
This unit is a pretty straightforward unit to use. Pressing the power button 5 times unlocks the unit so that pressing the power button engages the coil in the heating chamber. All you need to do then is load your botanical into the heating chamber, then drop the shield and mouthpiece on top, press the power button and inhale, but you won’t be inhaling vapor.
Like and other pen unit, this gadget doesn’t have any temperature flexibility. The unit has one temperature setting that is engaged as long as you’re holding the power button. Other than moving air faster or slower through the heating chamber or only pressing the power button for short periods of time, you can’t control the temperature in the heating chamber.
The vapor quality from this unit is horrible for the simple fact that it doesn’t actually produce vapor. The unit is only capable of using one heat setting, and that heat setting combusts your dry botanical in the heating chamber no matter what you do.
The unit is pretty well made as they’ve chosen to use a lot of high quality materials in the construction of this unit. The tank uses glass for the shell, metal for the 510 connection and a ceramic plate below a metal coil. The power button feels relatively sturdy and the and the only place where the unit feels relatively low quality is the mouthpiece which is made of plastic.
Like all pen vaporizers, this unit has a pretty good battery life. The unit’s battery lasts for somewhere around 2 hours of continuous use, which is pretty good even if the unit can’t actually vaporize with this unit. If you choose to take this unit around with you, you won’t find yourself having to charge it up too often.
Just like any pen vaporizer, this unit is really easy to carry around because of how small it is. The pen shape makes it easy to slip it into your pocket and carry it around with you without much of a problem. The glass around the heating coil might be cause for some concern, but the shield covers and protects the glass for the most part.
Ease of Use
Being a 1 button pen-style unit means this is really easy to use. The power button locks and unlocks the unit and the power button also engages the coil inside the heating chamber. Loading and unloading the heating chamber is the hardest part only because the combusted botanical can be difficult to fully get out of the chamber. Also, it’s impossible to use the unit as a vaporizer, which is its own issue, but still worth mentioning.
The look of this unit is pretty discreet, though it doesn’t actually vaporize, so the smell of your combusted botanical will make this unit a lot less stealthy than it could be. Otherwise this unit is pretty discreet as it’s small enough to fit pretty comfortably in your hand and is colored to blend in pretty well to its surroundings.
This was a decent attempt from Grenco and Snoop, but this unit is still light-years from being able to vaporize dry botanical, and there is no other way to use this unit. If you’re looking for a pen unit, you’d be better off with the ZEUS Thunder
. It doesn’t vaporize dry botanical either, but it’s a convenient solution that actually provides you the ability to use oils and waxes as well so you aren’t anywhere near as limited.
Compatible with ZEUS Iceborn
This vaporizer is compatible with the ZEUS Iceborn, a revolutionary new vapor cooling system engineered by Canadian vape manufacturer ZEUSArsenal. The Iceborn is designed to produce cooler draws and bigger clouds when connected to your vaporizer. The vapour produced is ultra smooth and crisp and because of ice cooling, instead of water filtration, there is no loss of efficiency. The ZEUS Iceborn adds an additional 2 points to the vapor quality score of this vaporizer and is a highly recommended vaporizer accessory.
