The Puffco Pro 2 Vape Pen For Wax

This is the brand new Puffco Pro 2 vape pen for wax, and I think it’s a great all-around upgrade from the original Pro which you can find my full review of farther down the page.

See my best vape pen list for the models I currently rate the highest. Stay up!

The new one is smaller, made of nicer materials, and has an updated atomizer. Check out some of my updated pix below.

Puffco Pro 2 New vs Original Puffco Puffco Coil

Below is my review of the original Puffco Pro pen:

Puffco Pro The Puffco Pro is a sexy-looking vape pen with an elegant feel.

Puffco Pro Atomizer

It’s big. The ceramic-lined chamber can hold roughly ~.3g of concentrate, which is definitely above average.

At the bottom of the chamber is a ceramic rod wick wrapped with a titanium coil. It’s pretty deep, so sometimes I find it difficult to load a little bit of my wax directly onto the coil.

This is one of the reasons why I recommend loading this atomizer with at least ~.2g for the best performance and efficiency. I really haven’t found it to be very great with small amounts at a time, it’s obvious that this one was designed to just be packed full every time (well, at least 2/3 full).

When you load it you wanna make sure that there’s some kind of air path through your concentrate down to the oil. If no air can pass through you might not get a good draw so just use your dab tool to make a little air hole for the best performance.

Puffco Atomizer The extra large chamber is cool, but one of the drawbacks is that your oil may have a tendency to get stuck around the edges, and sometimes down under the coil as well. Every dozen puffs or so I would open it up quickly and move the wax back onto the coil if necessary.

The best way to clean out the atomizer is really just to turn it upside-down and run through two heat cycles on high. Whatever’s left in there will come leaking out so do this over a paper towel to avoid a mess.

If you wanted to reclaim any oil stuck in there and use it again there’s a few ways you can do it, but here’s one simple method: Get a hair dryer, some parchment paper, and a pair of tongs. Grab your atomizer with the tongs and hold it upside-down over the paper, then gently heat it with the hair dryer, and after about a minute or so your oil should start leaking out onto the paper.

Performance, Efficiency & Vapor Quality

When I load .3g in there I get 50-70 puffs on average, and this is with taking a ~4 second draw and vaping on the low heat setting. As far as efficiency goes I can’t complain about that at all, that’s a high number of pulls from one packing.

Puffco Components I’d say the quality of the vapor it produces is very good, and above average. The taste is clean and the vapor is smooth and comfortable, and it works equally well with both smaller and larger draws.

There’s a tiny bit of draw resistance when you’re pulling from it, so it’s not as free-flowing as some other models, but it’s still totally acceptable.

However, something I don’t like is that the atomizer will sometimes feel clogged, meaning I’ll go to take a pull from it and it’ll just feel stuck, like no air getting through.

To fix this all I usually have to do is pull on it strongly on a few times while tapping the power button, and then it’ll feel like it “unclogs”. Simple fix, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t annoying when it happens.

Temperature-Controlled Battery

The battery is pretty small compared to most full-size pens, and it has 3 heat settings:

Puffco Cloud GREEN = Low
BLUE = Medium
RED = High (yes I am)

To cycle between the three levels you tap the power button 4 times and wait a second (tapping it 5 times will turn it off).

I don’t notice any difference in the speed at the which the coil heats up between the different settings, but I do see a slight difference in the maximum temperatures (the coil glows a tad brighter on high heat).

The battery charges up for me in just about 3 hours or so, and it does last through quite a bit of usage before it dies. It’s hard to say exactly how long because usage styles vary widely between users, but compared to other pens I own it’s right in line with what I would expect.

Overall

This is a great pen if you don’t mind loading a decent amount of wax at a time, and the build quality and feel is certainly above average.

It’s not the best with small amounts, but when you pack a lot you do get quite a few draws, so the efficiency ends up being pretty good.

Sometimes I’ll randomly get a clogged feeling when I go to take a pull, but aside from that the vapor it produces is smooth and comfortable with a nice clean flavor.

  • I have also only had problems with the pen. The original battery only worked with pre-filled catridges and then completely stopped working after one week. It didn’t matter how long I charged the battery for. They sent me a new battery that again only worked with pre-filled cartridges. After one week it stopped working entirely. I think it may be the charger. I have asked for a refund several times after sending several videos to demonstrate the issues. I also took it back to the store where I bought the pen and got a video with a battery check system that also demonstrated it defects.

    • Hello, Heather sounds like you’re overcharging the battery. Battery life is particular to that of the user of course. Our new Plus atomizer technology does draw more current from the battery than our competitors.

      Frequent use of the highest (white) setting and/or Sesh Mode will greatly deplete battery life.

      Your kit came with one of our brand new usb/supercharger that are expected to fully charge a depleted Plus battery in under 35 minutes, (please do not charge over this recommended time and especially do not charge overnight) while those with a Pro 2 model charger should anticipate a charging time of approx. 55 minutes so charging your Puffco should be quicker than ever. If this is not what you are experiencing, the battery is covered under warranty and will be replaced at our cost while under warranty.

  • Horrible experience. My first vape pen, got great reviews, and didn’t work – it would never charge regardless of where and how long I tried to charge it; and yes, I cleaned the battery connections. A total rip off because the place that sold it to me says to send it to the manufacturer. Great, I’ve now got to purchase something else. Screw this, I’m going with a rig – at least I know it’s fool proof. I’m out $90 and will never use another product from this company.

  • So I love my PuffCo pens, between me and my family we have three of them. I had a problem with my PuffCO pen where the pen would not work correctly (connection pins weren’t making sufficient contact). I contacted PuffCo support and within 24 business hours I received a reply from John. He asked me to upload some information about my issue and some troubleshooting tips, after that didn’t work he asked for my address and sent me another battery for free! I’ve never been treated by a company as well as PuffCo has treated me. Usually you have to RMA your device or product, etc. but with PuffCo it was a no questions asked, covered under warranty, replacement shipped out ASAP ordeal. Love this company and happy to support it by buying their product!

  • **Make sure to clean your battery/end of atomizer** I totally love this pen, but ive experienced the same problem as I see a few others here have. One day when I unscrewed the battery, a little piece of the atomizer was broken off.

    I went to the store I bought it and was told/pointed out wax was coming through to the battery so the tip of the atomizer needs to be cleaned regularly. Luckily this store is the best and they sold me a new atomizer at cost :). Now i know to keep it clean.

    Besides the ocassional clogged feeling mentioned above thats the only other problem.

  • I look online and see so many good reviews on the new puffco2. I bought two of them I loved my first gin and just knew that the new on was going to be better. Boy was I wrong. It hit great, that was not the problem. They both broke. The platform that is soldered to a wire going to the battery, comes out with the top when you take it off for charging. Lucky for me I still have my first gin that still hits great. I want two more of the first gin model.

    • Hello Lance,

      Thanks for reaching out to Puffco! I do apologize for any inconvenience, however, there are currently no plans of restocking the original Pro 1 or its coils. The original Pro has been discontinued for some time now and was essentially replaced by our new Pro 2 unit.

      Let me know if need any troubleshooting or replacements for your Pro 2 batteries, we’re happy to help.

      Thank you!

  • I’d advise caution with Puffco products. The battery casing on my pen came apart in my pocket a couple weeks ago and started to spark when I tried to put it back together. I bought a Puffco in the first place because I’d heard so much about how they stand behind their product, but when I contacted their support they tried to sell me another pen. The people at the store I took it to were very clear that it was a manufacturer’s defect and the pen should not come apart that way.

    I feel a little guilty because I’d planned on letting it go if they’d honored their commitment to stand behind their product, but it’s probably good for others to know when an electronic device we keep in our pockets has the potential to fall apart and start sparking. I realized it and could cut the wires to the battery before anything bad happened, but I was lucky because it’s these types of things that lead to vaporizer batteries catching fire or exploding.

    The pen was awesome when it was working! But with the combination of a dangerous defect and poor customer service, I decided it was a better idea pay the extra money for an Indigopro. I’m sure there’s a danger with all vape pens, but no exposed wiring or sparking with the Indigopro so far! So off to a good start.

    • Hi Lance,

      While this is not how we normally cover this part under our warranty policy, I am happy to provide a replacement as a one-time courtesy for your expired warranty Pro 1 device.

      We’d love to hear back from you again to get this issue tackled as quickly as possible.

      Thank you for your assistance, I look forward to hearing back from you and getting you back up and puffing!

  • They basically stole my money. I bought the product. It never worked. They sent me a new battery which they claimed was the problem. Never recieved battery so now they want me to file a claim with post office. And made me feel like I’m scamming them. They should be filing claim. Typical scam. Beware this is a scam.

  • Bought new. Didn’t work. Three weeks now problem still not resolved. Company could be a scam? Don’t buy this product. Stole my money.

  • Can you show a picture of the battery inside with the atomizer removed please
    The gold contact feel out of mine and won’t work. I’m afraid I lost a peice?

    • That doesn’t sound too pleasant. Please forward me a picture of this issue to my e-mail [email protected] or any of our social media outlet message inboxes. Happy to tackle this for you right away.

  • Im a MM patient and Im new to all this i just got volcano last fall and a g pro elite for flower I’ve never used concentrates or dabbed yet but I’m very interested in a pen like this I’m disabled ( hands thumbs, shoulders etc all very bad ) and need ease of use , ease of maintenance and long lasting like you say but I don’t need huge chsmbers full of wax I want to know can i leave it in there and use it at my leisure?you mentioned a high number of draws I mean 60-70 draws will last me for days not 1 day so is this chamber too big for me ? Or can i use it slowly leaving some for another sess…or if this pen isn’t good a fit for me then whats your advice for the best pen for my needs and under 90$ too ? By the way love your YouTube vids as well thanks

    • I find the puffco Pro 2 the best vape pen going. I use it everyday and I only put small amount in it Burns just fine best way to load it is the vape pen oil in a syringe or honey oil excetera

    • Only fill a single use (.2 or .3) of product at a time. The Pro 2 was designed for mobility and strength, so stick to smaller loads for the optimal experience. If this is not what you are experiencing, the battery is covered under warranty and will be replaced at our cost. Please contact me in our social media inboxes to get to me fastest to see what we can do keep puffin’ with us.
