The G Pro / K-Vape Vaporizer For Dry Herb

G Pro & K Vape

This is one of those vapes that’s sold under a bunch of different brand names, but they’re all essentially the same thing with a few minor variations. The most popular models are the G Pro from Grenco Science (G Pen) and the KandyPens K-Vape.

It’s easy to use which is nice, all it has is the one button on the front. Click it five times to turn the vape on and hold it down for 3 seconds to cycle between the different heat settings. All 3 vapes use the same red, green and blue colors to indicate low, medium and high temperatures.

LOW (RED) = 320°F
MEDIUM (GREEN) = 380°F
HIGH (BLUE) = 420°F

I think it’s pretty confusing and not very intuitive to have the red light as the low setting, it should really be: low = green, med = blue, high = red

These are the three G Pro models I currently own – Standard, DGK, and Black Scale:

G Pro

For the best performance and most vapor production you should grind up your dry herbs fine and pack the chamber full, then tamp it down a tiny bit, you don’t really want your stuff loose in there.

As far as vapor quality, that’s where it doesn’t score very high in my book. I’ve definitely experienced worse, but it’s not on the same level as the better portable vapes on my list.

The taste of the vapor is decent for the first few draws, but about halfway through your session it starts to get a little hot and harsh, and not quite as pure as some other models. This is when using it on the medium or high heat settings, on low heat it won’t really get uncomfortable you just won’t get as much visible vapor. However, you can use this vape on high heat through a water-pipe with a special adapter and it really makes the vapor smoother and the experience better, I show a clip of me using it a little farther down the page.

Oven Again, this vape is very inexpensive which is why I’m giving it some leeway with the vapor quality, I wouldn’t expect a unit this cheap to produce top shelf vapor, and you shouldn’t either. If you get this as your first vape at least you’ll know it only goes up from here! ;)

The herb chamber is fairly large with a capacity of roughly 0.4g to 0.5g depending on how finely you grind. It isn’t quite as efficient with your material as some of the better portables, but it’s not bad either, I seem to be averaging about 10-15 decent draws from a full packing. It does seem to evenly vape your herbs pretty well though which is always nice to see.

The video below shows me vaping a half session on high heat, so this is pretty much the max amount of vapor you can get from it:

Heat up time is pretty quick, normally around a minute, and you should be able to get just about an hour of usage before the battery dies. It uses the standard micro-USB adapter for charging which is really convenient, these chargers are cheap and come in many forms. It also has pass-through charging, which means you can turn it on and use it while it’s plugged in.

Cleaning and maintenance shouldn’t be a big issue with this vape, as long as you brush out the chamber and mouthpiece quickly after each session you should be able to go quite a while between thorough cleanings, at which time a paper towel and some q-tips with rubbing alcohol will do the trick.

These are the K-Vape models I have – Standard (middle), and the White & Black 24K Editions:

K-Vape

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money at all, if you’re just looking for something entry-level, this one could be right up your alley. For the best experience I highly recommend using this vape through a water pipe with the adapter I show below, you won’t notice any harshness in the vapor this way and it’s way more enjoyable.

Buy the K-Vape on the official KandyPens website, and use my promo code STAYUP20 for 20% OFF the regular price.

Stay up!
-Bud

NOTE: Using this vape through a water pipe makes the vapor much more comfortable in my opinion, and you can take bigger draws without it feeling harsh. NewVape makes some really nice water pipe adapters, and they made one specifically for this vape. I really like the quality of this piece a lot and highly recommend it if you want the best experience.

    every time l hit the G pen a couple of times both lights turn green. I just bought ot yesterday. It was working fine the first time l used. When l charged it up both lights turn green and I can’t get anything. Is it broken already. I paid 99 bucks for it.
    Thanks

    The mouth piece design is extremely poor. The plastic that holds metal filter keeps breaking within 3 weeks. I replaced two already and now I can’t use my vape. I’ll probably buy another part and really research a pen that will be designed in a better way. Anyone that is reading this comment.. I’m open to suggestions , I’m willing to spend up to $120. Or is that a very low budget??

      After my 2nd mouthpiece I improvised. I took a pill bottle (meds from pharmacy) and drilled a hole in bottom for drawing from. I kept the metal screen piece from original mouthpiece. I load, insert metal piece , then pill bottle. Fits perfectly snug and leaves abit of draw room in case. I can use the bottle for about a couple of months and replace when just to dirty or anything. Been doing this for just over a year. Getting meds monthly is a free mouthpiece whenever needed.

        This is so true. I went through two already. Besides that, the vape is pretty good . When my last mouthpiece broke .I ended up using one of those large hookah tips.I took the metal piece out of the tip and i fits perfectly in the hookah tip.Last much longer and a better hit.I have a spare GPro tip to use only to use when I’m away from home to keep discreet .

    These things are perhaps dangerous as the lids start to melt and crack over time…possibly breathing in plastic fumes. The company won’t reply regarding these concerns which is also not a good sign. DO NOT BUY

    I bought one of these as a cheap extra to add to my Pax1 and 2, mflb. The USB charger was key to the purchase. These proprietary chargers (my #1 complaint with the pax1 and to a lesser extent the pax2, which still requires you to carry the cradle. My biggest issue is with the plastic mouthpiece cap. It gets real hot AND it cracks. I was traveling with it and didn’t have an extra cap obviously, not knowing it was a problem. I had to krazy glue it on the outside, not optimum considering the fact that it gets real hot so if you have an issue with vaping krazy glue, well… After gluing it, it just cracked in another place. I guess you need to limit the session to to your 2nd 5 minute timeout (it takes about 4 of the first 5 min. to warm up). Don’t use the highest heat setting either. That’s more likely to crack it. The warm up is not quick, but it’s not a deal breaker.

    We used it with 3-4 people and it seemed to work out, but you do have to let it cool. The battery life was pretty decent really. I’d say that’s a major plus.

    The vapor was quite good, IMO. More consistent than my pax 1, which had to be packed tight to produce good vapor, with a light top off and stirring to get the most of the fill. I don’t like a burny flavor and I thought this stayed within the flavor range fairly well on Red and Green. I was a little confused about the temp colors at first, but as a graphic designer, the RGB is easy to remember.

    The other big issue I have with this vape is how hot the black mouthpiece gets. You must use the rubber tips. They should make a ceramic one Or use one of the accessory attachments. A ceramic screen to replace the wire mesh is a good idea, which allows for a clearer draw

    Overall, this vape is worth the money, preferably as a secondary portable in instances where you don’t want to risk your pax2.

    Hello Bud,
    I bought my first Gpro earlier this year and it was working great then I went to charge it and it would not charge at all so I went back to The Lemonade Stand where I bought it and I said it was working with my laptop but now it doesn’t. So they suggested I get a USB block and try that so I did and it worked then after a fey months it would not charge at all. So I went back and they said that I’d have to go through GPro to ge it replaced cus they can’t do anything. About it. I then went to another store here and just bit the bullet and bought another Gpro so I have one till I get around to contacting GPro. Now last night I went to charge it again and it won’t charge. Any suggestions?

      I thought I was the only one having this problem, no one talks about this. The taste is so dramatically disgusting…and I can’t even stand the smell! My room stinks after using it as you said, too. I noticed the taste is (always horrible, but) almost “acceptable” on red, while it makes you want to throw up on blue. I’m so sad this is happening. I used it a couple of times and that’s it.

    Hey Bud,

    I’m hoping you can help me determine if I purchased a lemon K-Vape 2.0 or if I’m doing something wrong. 1st…my only vape experience is with my Magic Flight Launch Box. Ok…so I’ve only used my K-Vape 2.0 three times and each time I have to suck so friggin hard on the damn thing that I almost pass out…like the airflow is obstructed. I cleaned out the device thoroughly to test the airflow. 1st I pulled the mouthpiece off and sucked through the mouthpiece to make sure it was functioning…and it was working perfectly…good flow. Then I put the mouthpiece on with no herb in the chamber and it is difficult to get airflow. Then I examined the device to determine how air is supposed to get it and the only thing I can figure is the USB charging portal? Seems like there should be a hole somewhere…bad design IMHO. 12 pulls off of the K-Vape 2.0 is equal to 3 pulls off of my MFLB. By the 12th pull the thing is so hot it burns my throat. WTF am I doing wrong?

    We have 3 of these and are going to switch because the lids are CHEAPLY made; they crack and/or the middle metal piece falls out after about 3-5 uses! So far we have spent more $$ on replacing the mouthpieces than for the vapes themselves (and yes, we followed the instructions on how to take the top off and put it on, but the mouthpiece is CHEAP, thin plastic, with the center metal screen holder not even glued or held in by anything so that expansion breaks both the plastic and allows the center to fall out! Worse, the company that MAKES these mouthpieces could care less,obviously); this is NOT acceptable and I am surprised you said nothing about that since it is a big problem: In fact, it is the only problem we have had; we have had ZERO trouble with the vape itself, so it’s frustrating – and we bought two different brands (but BOTH use the same exact mouthpiece!). I have to wonder WHY the company doesn’t just fix the darn mouthpieces – other than to get more money out of the buyer?! Well, it has driven three of us away completely from those types and I’m sure others are angry and frustrated as well. our 3 cents.

    So I am left to wonder why you did not add any info about the crapy tops they make for ALL of these particular “types” of vapes.

    I just got my GPRO black pen going. I found on High heat, a slightly conjested screen , and fine ground dry side herb gave me the best vap. Im a smoker and I like the burn …I swore it was burning but the left over material and lack of real smoke proved it was vaping.
    Unfortunately , I dropped it and the mouth piece cracked as did the plastic housing the metal screen receptacle. I just used some instant glue and will hope for best. Its plastic pressure fit mouthpiece was the main weak point I noticed upon this otherwise worthwhile economy vaporizor when it arrived. Anyone know of parts?

    My gf’s G-Pen breaks roughly once a month, which the guy at the smoke shop told her was “normal”. So she has to replace the middle part monthly…not really convenient or cost-effective. The company should definitely warn customers about this if it’s a known issue. Also, I see people on weed forums claiming the Grenco model “can’t possibly vaporize herb”. Is that true?

    P.S. – It *IS* my gf’s first vape, so maybe she’s doing something wrong. Meh.

    I bought a G Pro vaporizer about 2 months ago. I actually liked this vaporizer (for it’s price it’s just fine) however, it has one big fault which undoubtedly didn’t show up in your review because it takes a bit of time to appear. After a couple weeks the plastic lid/mouthpiece started loosing it’s grip onto the unit so I started using adhesive tape to hold the lid on. Then little pieces of the rim started breaking away …basically just deteriorating. The seller sent me another plastic mouthpiece (they said this was a common problem)and I handled it even more carefully yet it started losing it’s grip and had little pieces breaking away even sooner. I used to work in the plastic business and that plastic mouthpiece is just too thin around the rim, and even if ‘fattened’ I doubt it would hold up unless they also improved the quality of the plastic used. As is, it’s a complete waste of money.

    Cheers …and keep up the good work Vapecritic:)

    Hi Bud. First off, thanks for these reviews; your site has been my go-to resource for reviews while I look for the best starter vape for my purposes. I’m looking to vape about 0.25g a day for chronic pain relief and have been told that convection vapes are the way to go for not having to pack bowls tight. This vape advertises as “convection vaping in its truest form” but does it really live up to that claim? I don’t want to have to pack my material because I am going to be vaping at school and don’t want to attract attention when I do so. Assuming the herb would get shaken about and un-tamped, does it greatly reduce the efficiency of this device? Price point is great and I don’t care about clouds or huge rips; just enough to get a numbing of my body while maintaining clarity of mind. My budget is ideally less than 150 (CAD, not helping myself here!). Do you think this vape would hold up to those requirements? (small bowls, discrete, not picky about grind)

    Thanks!

    For those still CONSIDERING getting this vaporizer…don’t. Just get an astral. With Bud’s discount, you can get it for the same price as the K-Vape/G-Pen/Titan/etc. and not get as harsh or hot vape quality. Will THAT be better than Pax, not by a long shot but it will be FAR superior to this and it definetely won’t break the bank. Good vape sessions to all and to all a good vape lol

    DO NOT BUY THIS CHINESE PIECE OF GARBAGE. This thing is a total ripoff. I literally used it for two months and the mouthpiece fell apart and now the battery won’t hold a charge. If you try to contact their customer service you will most likely be ignored. One of the guys who owns the company is named Roger and he will tell you a bunch of BS if you run into any problems. If you want a quality vape, I would seriously look elsewhere. I literally saw this same vape on a Chinese wholesale website. Kandypens buys these piece of shit vapes from China and then throws a “K” on it. What an f’ing sham this company is. I REPEAT…. DO NOT BUY THIS CHINESE CRAP.

You can add many other consumer products to this that are either manufactured in China or other parts of Asia – most are well made (nut to a lower overall cost than in the USA) and will deliver whatever they are supposed to.

    I bought the G/Pro Snoop version and was rather disappointed. It did not follow the 1-3 hrs as the manual stated to charge. After about 5-6 hrs it finally turned green, then to not a hold a charge after first usage. To add to the 1st one, no high, no vapor, no nothing except for wasting my herb. It did however turn the herb brown and waste it. Now they replaced it “Grenco Sciece”, who were nice to replace this model since I did not buy it from them, however neither of them WORK! The second one was the “black version”, it did not take 5-6 hrs, it took 2. Then the light was fully green and it did not produce a vapor, nor a buzz, hit whatever. The rep told me it was not fully charged even though it was green and to give it another 2-3 hrs, which it held the charge but produced no vapor, no high, and herb was still green. Now they want to send me a pen, this company needs to go back to the drawing board. I have used a volcano, a Pax, an Ego-t and they all do both. I might as well been vaporing H20.

    5 clicks, The K Vape turns on, warms up, about 30 seconds, temperature light comes on, and the top light immediately starts blinking, 13 times and shuts down and its not hot enough for one puff.
    I saw one comment suggesting clicking the ON button 10 times when turning it on as it resets the clock? No luck.

    I got the g pro about a month ago and it worked fine and didnt really have any problems with it untill one day it stopped charging. The only way it chargers is if i put pressure on the usb and bend it a little but even then it cahrged for 3+ hours and still was red. Ive tried using different usb cords but the same thing happens everytime.

    Hey there! My GPro is showing a full charge but then blinks red and shuts off before it gets hot. I even tried keeping it plugged into the outlet and it still won’t work.

    Any ideas on what might be going on?

    Thanks!

    My wife got a free one for me at some Convention in Vegas and I was pretty hyped considering I was scoping this one out before I got my Flowermate. But after using it a few times I realized that I made the right choice going with the Flowermate as my back up vape to my Pax2. The G Pro let me down.. The mouthpiece get’s super hot even with the rubber piece and taking short pulls. You have to use that long weird looking adapter mouthpiece in order to take long pulls. Which leads me to the taste.. The taste that comes from this thing is dreadful! I cleaned it and ran it a few times hoping the taste would go away. But it never did. I used it 6 times in total, and the last 2 times I got a headache. That rubber/ plastic bitter taste can’t be good for your body. I have to admit the vapor production is pretty good at the medium/high setting, and the herb vapes evenly. BUT! Needless to say i’m never using this G Pro again. That rubber/plastic taste is a deal breaker for me. I’ll stick with my Flowermate & Pax2.

      Quite the same here, I thought the strong plastic smell was because the unit was new, but after several use it just remains and you can actually smell it on every part of the vapo. Also I did find out I do not seem to obtain much vapor in low or medium and have to use it at the highest temperature; which quickly consume the bud and produces a harsh smoke that burns the throat. I guess that’s what it is for this price… The worst thing is definitely the plastic taste.

    My Grenko G-Pro vaporizer stopped holding a charge after less than 15 uses. They made it very difficult for me to go through a return process through their company. Fortunately the store I bought it from did a complete exchange. After two months, the replacement charging port began to fail. Now, again, it does not work after charging. Disappointed after some short-term enjoyment.

    I recently bought the G Pro vape and I’m trying to figure out how much herb I need to get [desired effects]. I’ve used the medium setting and found it didn’t work as well as if I put it on high (420 degrees). Last night I filled the bowl to the max, which is like 0.5-0.6 grams and it got me super [nice]. I just don’t want to be using so much product. It is a little harsh (heat/taste) but it definitely works and it’s not too unpleasant. Better than smoking, that’s for sure. Very clean [effects], takes a little longer to kick in as opposed to smoking. Easy to clean. Looks nice. No issues so far with the batts or any problems like that. So, how much (good quality) herb do you use?

I used desk tops before but this is my first portable. Also, I’ve used both the medium 380deg and high, 420deg (ironic the temp) but still no vapor. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Hi, just bought the DGK G Pro. Worked ok the first time and from then on it doesn’t seem to hold charge, even though the power light eventually turns green (charged) from red when it´s been plugged in for a couple of hours.
    But then when I turn it on the power light starts blinking red a few times and then it shuts itself off.
    Any tricks that you Bud or anyone reading is aware of to get it to work again? is the battery replaceable? Otherwise it was a pretty expensive one session.
    Regards, all the best!

    August 13, 2015 at 10:51 pm

    Hey Bud,

    So my bro has the G-Pen and he thinks its the Bees knees. I tried it and thought it was the coolest thing ever…until I found this awesome website. Now once you try the Pax (original) you are going to realize the STRONG contrast between the two. For aesthetics, it is plastic and cheap feeling. The raw mouthpiece (not the rubber they send you) gets hot after one pull (not even a session just a pull) though we’ve only used it on hot since it doesn’t vaporize well on medium and we didn’t grind it up to flight box standards. If you have soft buttery lips (you naturally have smooth lips and don’t crack easily), then you’re going to feel it very fast and the rubber mouth piece is recommended.
    The rubber mouth piece itself makes it harder to pull meaning you got to pull harder than average to get decent pulls (for harder pulls, pull super hard with the mouthpiece). The rubber can get warm but won’t burn.

    You have to tap it around which can become a nuance between sessions. And even though my bro never dropped it and always charged it RIGHT before using it (never at night before bedtime) the battery started dying out faster and faster within 6 months so it has a cheap rechargable battery. Currently battery life is sustained around 20-30 minutes. Sometimes it doesn’t even charge fully or at all and you have to wait an hour or so just to have it accept charge. Maybe do some fanagling just to get it to pick up charge. A big no no in my book.

    The vape is kind of harsh like you said bud and it definetely has a funny taste. Even though I never taste any flavors when smoking or vaping to begin with, this one had a funny taste that definetely didn’t belong on the material but never had that problem with the same material on my Pax. I never got the experience I was looking for as fast as I could with other vaporizers so I definetely think people should save up and especially now since this Vapium SUmmit seems to be making quite a lot of buzz too, because otherwise, you’ll just grow weary of all the fanagling. And please don’t drop it on hard flooring because I have heard horror stories of it not working anymore either.

    August 6, 2015 at 9:37 pm

    Bud, I have a question for you. Since the G-Pro and K-Vapes are, basically,the same and you have both can you check to see if the G-Pro mouthpiece will fit the K-Vape. The reason being that the replacement cost of the G-Pro’s mouthpiece is $5 and the K Vape is $20. I know the K Vape is warranted for life , but have heard of others having trouble with Kandy after a couple of mouthpiece replacements.

  62. Tiger Weedz
    July 22, 2015 at 4:21 pm

    You mentioned cheap build quality but you didn’t mention that the K-vape is still lifetime guaranteed. I’m a mmj patient who is getting ready for a second major spinal surgery. After the first the cartridge style vape pen I used in the hospital & nursing home both bankrupted me & added humidity to my lungs when I got pneumonia. I want a dry herb vape for the next surgery. I have COPD & that gives me issues with draw pressure. Most reviewers do not rate on ease of draw & that is unfortunate because that’s one of the most important issues to the people who need to vaporize the most. Also many of us are disabled & therefore on fixed incomes so clear quality/warranty information helps us.when it comes right down to it for $150 or under what vaporizer would best serve me while I am on my back recovering in a hospital with possibly limited dexterity like I have presently? I have about 60% use of both hands.

      I own the Magic Flight Launch Box ($119), and the PAX2 ($279). I adore them both! My mother in law also has COPD, she is in the end stage of it, lots of breathing difficulties. She has used both the MFLB and PAX2, they both worked good for her, although the PAX2 had to be cleaned with a pipe cleaner after a 1-3 uses otherwise it would become more difficult to inhale. I have MS (I get a lot of weakness), and pushing in the battery on the MFLB gave me no issues. Hopefully you’re able to see this, and it helps. Good Luck!! :)

    I found the problem for the people that have the flashing red light problem… so i took it apart and the problem seems to be the 2 white wires that hang from the heating cup and break off really easily from the main circuit board . These wires connect to the thermometer in the heating cup, and so if the thermometer can’t read the temperature then it shuts off for safety reasons. Its a very simple fix just reattach those wires to the motherboard and voila it will work .
    The case is made of 3 parts, insert a flat screwdriver between the top right and top left edges of the plastic piece that has the button. Gently pry and the two small nubs in the ribbed part will move back amd let the top piece slide up and out. Be careful, theres two black and two white (silicon) wires to power the heater around the cup, and two thin wires wrapped in thin white silicone tube it looks like. The two thin wires go to what appears to be a thermocouple.
    Do not bother prying up on the plastic part that has the cup, its only held in with two small nubs protruding into the main part of the case. No glue, no extra clips.

    Ok, so i am now on my second replacement of the K-Vape and idk what to do . Same problem on both pens !! i charge it up with a Galaxy Note 4 charger ( 5v 2.1Amp) for about 2.5 (hrs) and then use it . First round of its use it works fine, but once i click it five more times to turn it off to prep round 2 it doesn’t fully turn back on again . It just goes through its heat up stage and then flashes the red light like 15 times and turns off , i’ve tried recharging it nothing.. Same problem over and over . Am i doing something wrong here ? Does it really seem normal for two consecutive units shipped a few days apart ?

  66. John
    July 4, 2015 at 3:05 pm

    After reading a lot of reviews, including this one, I bought a K-Vape. Yesterday it arrived. I was stoked!

    I read the instructions and plugged it in to charge. When I did, the red light came on like it’s apparently supposed to. About two hours later, the light was green, indicating the unit was charged.

    However, when I attempted to use it, it would not work. I pushed the button 5 times and the red light came on, indicating it was heating. Almost immediately however, the light flashed 15 times and the unit turned off. I tried charging it and repeating the process many times, all with the same result. 15 flashes of the red light and the unit shut down. I even tried different charging cables and plug ins.

    I’m waiting to hear from customer service. Doesn’t really help m at the moment, but at least it’s warrantied.

    Hey Bud,
    In your opinion would it be better to spend like 20 dollars more and get a magic flight launch box instead of a K-vape? I would be using it pretty much every day, but I haven’t had a vape before and would prefer to use something simple for the time being.

    • Anon
      June 29, 2015 at 1:04 pm

      Don’t buy this vape, it has off-gassing issues and is probably unsafe to use on a regular basis. Awful, headache inducing odors led me to shine a flashlight on the unit (this was all prior to ever using it with product). I deduced from personal experience as well as some threads on vaporizer forums that inappropriate materials are used in the vapor path and mine had a visible plastic vapor coming out of the unit. Beware!

      • Anon
        June 29, 2015 at 1:07 pm

        Moreover, I did around 100 full burn off cycles and the strong, noxious vapor persisted. After 100 cycles it was just as pungent as ever. I returned mine, will never buy a cheap plastic vape again and will be purchasing a Firefly, as I value my health, which is the whole point of vaping anyway.

I can get the No2 or the G-pro exactly for the same price. Now i’m kind of confused since you got the g-pro in the “top-picks” and the No2 you don’t. Is this really better than the No2?

      As as I know bro, it is a Lithium battery, just as cellphones are. I do use my cellphone while charging it, and I do unplug it before a whole charge sometimes. I’m doing the same with Grenco Gpen Black Scale… hoping it’s a good quality battery and it won’t be affected negatively.

    I just got one of these today, and your review is spot-on. The vapor quality isn’t on par with my other vapes (Da Buddha and Firefly), but for what I paid for it I’m pretty happy. It’s very portable and the build quality seems decent. There’s a definite plasticy taste when you first turn it on, especially when set to 420. It’s much less noticeable at 380, and seems to be diminishing as I continue to use the it. The unit does get pretty warm, and the vapor is a tad bit harsh but not terrible. I got a good deal on this vape so I think it’s definitely worth it, but it ain’t no Firefly. You get what you pay for. BTW, that V2 Pro Series 7 that just came out looks nice, maybe you can review that one some time.

    I just bought the Atmos Transporter. I like everything except the taste. One of the best parts of an experience is the taste. I put top-shelf product in the chamber as described and it taste bad. I hate [using] paper, but the flavor with this vaporizer almost makes paper better.
    My product taste and smells amazing until I use this vap, then it taste yukky from first to last hit.

    None of you who are having trouble with the “G Pro” are alone. I won’t bother typing out my experience because it is literally identical to the less than satisfactory results some of you mentioned above. I’ve already sent my unit back to Grenco. Of course no refunds but I’ll receive a rebuilt or replaced unit within two to three weeks. Let’s see if they have better customer service than they do vaporizers.

    Between this one and the V2 pro what’s your rating? I am entry level. I like the V2 because it seems to have a smaller chamber and better usage of your material. Do you have to completely fill the chamber every time ? Not really worried about amount of vape. I’d like it to be smooth as possible with price. Just worried really about getting my affect and not hacking a lung from too burnt material from the classic pipe and lighter

    This is an absolutely terrible vaporizer.

    Maybe my unit’s defective, but I’ve tried using it six times now and I’m getting zero results from it. On the low and medium settings, no amount of “heat-up” time, and no amount of any length of draws will produce any vapor at all. On the highest setting, I have to let it heat up for nearly three minutes and take an unprecedented 20+ second draw until I get anything, and even then it’s an anemic cloud that I feel absolutely nothing from.

    On top of this, the mouthpiece burned my lips and already has a large chip in it from where a piece fell off, and obvious fault lines where pieces are sure to fall off in the future!

    What do I wind up with? .2g of ABV and barely a headrush. This is AFTER a three week t-break! Where’s the manufacturer to stand behind their product, provide support, and maybe even offer a replacement for my unit? Nowhere to be found.

    AVOID THIS PEN AT ALL COSTS.

      Hey I’m super bummed that you’re so disappointed!!

      You should be able to get better results than that with it, maybe something is defective with your unit.

      One thing I can think of is how you’re packing the chamber…

      Grind your material VERY fine and then make sure you pack it at least 90% full, and tamp it down so your stuff is fairly tight in there.

      If it’s not ground up enough, or you don’t pack enough / make it tight enough, you can get the results you described.

      Try it and let me know how you make out!!

    Our new units are not like the others everyone is selling.. the titan model.. We’ve upgraded the temperature from 360, 380 & 420 to 365, 400 and 428. We heard you loud and clear so we updated our new pens. Site update in progress. Watch for “The Chief” within the next few days as well. It is by far the best and most improved version of this vaporizer…custom one-of-a-kind design and performance.. aside from the X Pen Pro. Lord Vaper also has a handful of new useful pens coming out to solidify our product line. We’re here for the long haul to create and bring you the best most affordable and effective vape pens on the market. In one case, we’ve taken a pen the critics raved about and improved on a few things. So keep an eye on us and try our products. Thank you. BTW we respond to all sales and customer service inquiries and follow-up every day, even on weekends in most cases.

    HeyBud, Great Blog! I just got the G Pro by Grenco. It’s my first vaporizer. Wanted to know a few things in general. Do I need to always fill the chamber to the top? And how many draws should I be getting from a full chamber or half full chamber? I seem to only get one good draw from an almost full chamber, and then a few little draws at most. I’m using medium temp. Any advice? Thanks Bro

    • Bud
      January 9, 2015 at 12:36 pm

      Hey man yes this vape works best when you fill the chamber completely, and usually it’ll work even better if you pack it fairly tight and your stuff isn’t loose in there

      From a full chamber you should be able to get roughly 10 decent draws total

      Try grinding your herb finer and packing a little tighter, and make sure you take a long, slow draw to get max vapor

      • Davesjoint
        January 11, 2015 at 12:07 pm

        Thanks Man! Really appreciate your response (even though you did remove my link for some reason!). Will try your advice! Sometimes less is more, but I guess in this case more is less!

        Go forward, not straight! Peace!

    How does this pen compares to the v2 pro series 3 with loose leaf chamber? And also how do these 2 (v2pro series 3 & x pen pro) compare to the pax? I am buying a crafty from storz and bickel for myself and thinking of a second one for sharing the experience with friends. I am wondering if the x pen pro or the v2 pro series 3 are half as good as the pax! As prices are more or less half of the price of the pax!

    • Bud
      December 18, 2014 at 11:51 am

      The Main difference is the chamber size – the V2 Pro chamber is smaller (~0.1g versus ~0.3g in X-PEN) so you can’t get as many draws from it and the volume of vapor won’t be as much, but it’s efficient and the vapor quality is good.

      I normally recommend the V2 Pro for personal use, and just a handful of draws at a time.

      The X-PEN Pro would work better with a group of 2 or more people but the vapor quality isn’t quite as good as a vape like the Pax.

        FYI, it was the Titan 2 I was asking about. IDK about you, but I get a pretty good laugh when other sites who sell this vape go off on a rant about how all the other ones are fake pieces of garbage and theirs is the only good one, when in fact they’re all selling the same exact product.

    Excellent review, purchased product 1-2 months ago and for being a low end device, it works pretty well and it does not combust. Thanks for your reviews. It’s great that it kinda looks like an e cig and it is very discreet.

    Hey Bud, I just bought this vape from Lord Vapers. I can’t vape from it while it’s plugged in when battery die and this vape very little vapor ( I tried all 3 heat settings)
    Can you comment on this? Could you also do a video with
    quality steam on a black background

    Thanks

    • Bud
      November 25, 2014 at 1:07 pm

      Hey what you might have to do is if the vape is completely dead you might have to let it charge up for a little while before it’ll turn on.

      This is because it uses power faster than it can charge back up, so it needs a bit of initial charge (maybe around 20% charge or so) to have enough power to vape.

      I do show vapor production in my review video and it starts around the 1:46 mark.

      Are you grinding up your material nice and fine and packing the chamber full?

      If you’re not that’s usually the cause of poor performance, but if you’re already doing that let me know.

      Stay up!

    I recently purchased my first portable dry herb vape, a look-a-like to the X Pen called V-pure from a head shop locall
    in Michigan. Cost was $129 out the door.

    Very little vapor ( I tried all 3 heat settings).
    Have you heard of this knockoff? Any info would be greatly appreciated!! :-)

    Hey bud, I’m really stuck between the g pro (xpen, titan) and the iolite. How would you say the two compare? Besides the fact that one is butane powered and one is electric?

  107. M Curious
    November 7, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    In the second video here you say that vape pens generally just combust dry herb in a more convenient fashion. Is that true of the product in the first video (The X-PEN Pro Portable Herbal Vaporizer)? I am interested in a low-cost dry-herb vaping option but I want to actually be vaporing and not just using an electric pipe. Thanks.

    • Bud
      November 8, 2014 at 10:32 am

      No sir, the X-PEN Pro (first one) does truly vaporize dry herbs, there is no combustion.

      Some pen vapes for concentrates claim that they work with herbs also, but most of them just burn it.

    I didn’t care for the orbit when I tried it, I’ve been looking for this X-pen and frankly I’m glad I got it, the price is right and it performed better than I expected from the review and everybody sayin stuff. Vapor quality is great with a steady draw as recommended. Its sitting on my night stand and getting good use. ;) What a beautiful day people. I vote X-pen. Good customer support over there too.

      …based on YOUR review, again I’m sold on the Kpen. Appears with what I’ve ‘learnt’ from Bud this should be a super one person do hickey. With care the ‘cheapness’ and lower quality construction should not matter. Reviews are higher elsewhere. Than X!!! Than X to you 2 Bud. Peace!!!

    Compare this unit to the atmos orbit, which is better?

    • Bud
      October 13, 2014 at 12:15 pm

      Tough call but I’d say the vapor quality from the Orbit is a tiny bit better, and it’s also a little more expensive. It’s a little heavier than the X-PEN too and feels slightly more solid.

    October 9, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    Just came In the mail, your review is spot on, Bud! First time using a vape. I highly recommend it to anyone reading this, especially if you’re still combusting. Im totally biased because this is the only vape I’ve used but it definitely seems atleast an 80/100.

    Hey Bud, I just bought this vape (a titan). I haven’t received it yet. A large portion of the internet is claiming a strong plastic taste from this vape. Can you comment on this? Could you also do a review of the new flowermate v5.0 with a glass mouthpiece? Thanks

    • Bud
      October 7, 2014 at 8:52 am

      Hey Josh, the taste and vapor quality are definitely the main drawbacks to this vape, I don’t think it’s horrible or unbearable, I’ve tried worse, but after the first few draws it’s not going to taste very good and the vapor will be kinda hot & harsh. A little plasticy yes, but mostly just hot. I recommend using it on the low or medium heat settings only, I wouldn’t put it on high.

      For the price though I wouldn’t expect more, it gets the job done which is most important to some people, and if you’re looking for tasty high quality vapor I would look into one of the higher rated models.

      Thanks for your request also, I have that one of my list of future possibilities.

      Stay up!

      • Vape Lord
        November 11, 2014 at 9:28 pm

        Yeah but is that plasticy taste safe because if it is harsh on the body then it kinda defeats the purpose of vaping.

      • Sandy
        March 19, 2015 at 2:11 pm

        First portable vape purchase, fairly happy with it.

        No burnt plastic on my end. Burnt popcorn towards the end of the session before you repack. Make sure nothing is getting to hot and/or you do not over pack this as it won’t work as well and you may end up burning the unit getting a plastic taste.

        Here’s how it to works the best for me.

        First: finely chop and *DO NOT* over pack. Screen at top can get blocked after one draw. So try to pack it down about medium [don’t pack too hard or too loose] leave the top half centimeter [.5cm] from the top empty. [you may need to turn unit off, take cap off and clean screen with brush]

        Temp/type and draws.
        High temp if you’re in a hurry and/or herb is chopped but a little damp. After 1-3 pulls you can use medium setting.

        [pollen] – is IDEAL in this unit, very little is needed and you can still add a little mix to it Important: ONLY USE LOWEST HEAT setting for ‘pollen’

        Always give it 30 seconds after it turns green before first draw, on any setting. Best/biggest vape hits that way. 10-30 seconds between draws.

        The taste. As your session comes to an end and time to refill after the last 3 min session the taste is more like burnt popcorn [unit auto turns off approx 3-4 mins no matter what…]

        How do you know you had max vape session with this product? When I clear the screen [please remember to turn it off] pour a little of the herb into your hand, scrunch it. Does it remain looking like tobacco? You probably can do another session or two. If it crushes easy and turns to coffee grounds/dust – DUMP it.

        Hope this helps new users of the G Pro convection heating herbal vape pen. Others that use coils *burn* the material, this won’t burn it. Cannot say that other Grenco products for [concentrates] are decent even for the price.

        ~ 30 years of experience w/herbs and oils

          Wow thank you Sandy I bought this unit just a few days ago. I was not too disappointed but i though it did not produce enough vapor. It says to use the V card to grind, i found out the v card does not grind enough unless you really go at it. Now that it is fine thanks to my crusher I really like it. I do have to agree though the charge does last an hour or less in my case. No worries I always have a portable charger on me in case, but a longer lif would make it better. I would spend $50 for a better version with longer battery. If I had to change my mind i would have waited and bought a pax, but for now I like my G pro a lot Thanks

            Thanks, Sandy. Been using the G-Pro as my only vaper for a year or so now. Have had to replace the plastic mouthpiece twice – it cracks from overheating after a while, even at only the lowest setting (which is all I use). AI very modest dab of essential oil (I use lemongrass) rubbed inside the rubber mouthpiece will add to the vape flavour and eliminate the ‘plastic’ taste – which was never that bad for me at low heat setting.

      you should try the K-vape from Kandy pens they are getting a lot of hype. I know you already tried the x pen but that a cheap knockoff of the k-vape. I want to buy but have been burned by the puff it vape and counterfeit pax. so now I’m skittish when it comes to portable vapes.But its getting good ratings.

        Please get your facts straight. The X Pen is NOT a knock off. It works quite well. X Pen was out before the G pro or the kandy pens. They are all coming from the same factory in most cases. In fact, the X Pen guys have a new one called the Chief which has been hot-rodded (modded) with better temp settings.

      Hey Josh,

      I have a Flowermate 5.0. It’s was the first Vape I bought and subsequently my best purchase of 2015. I accidentally dropped it in a half full sink, smashing the glass mouth piece and submerging it in water in the process. I was devastated….I could not get it to turn on, so in a panic I went to the nearest Vape shop. They did not carry the Flowermate 5.0, I was foolishly tricked into buying a G Pro Black Scale kit. Worst decision of 2015 thus far for this girl. Thankfully I was able to fire up the Folowermate again once it dried out! My sweet, sweet Flowermate 5.0.
      I am now stuck with $180 Vape kit that sucks… Apparently you can’t even hock these things on Kijiji, my ad was taken down.

      Cheers and happy vaping!
