Ease of use
Today we will take a look at one of the many products from Yocan Vaporizers. Yocan Vaporizers currently offers a wide and diverse selection of dry herb, oil, and concentrate vaporizers. The full retail price for the Yocan Stix thick oil vaporizer currently runs for $24.99 on their website. For this review, I will try their Yocan Stix thick oil pen with the Bloom Drop syringe.
- Discreet portability
- Smooth efficiency
- Relatively easy to use
- Works with 510-threaded cartridges
- Solid battery strength
- Plastic mouthpiece
- Slightly burnt taste
- Only effectively works with distillate oil
Recommendations: A glass mouthpiece would be appreciated.
More versatile than the Little Dipper, works with most 510-threaded cartridges
The leak-proof Yocan Stix is a compact and lightweight oil pen designed for maximum portability and smooth efficiency. The Yocan Stix unit comes in a slim brown mylar-like bag with the manual and detailed instructions printed on the back. This is also a bit more versatile than something like the Little Dipper, which doesn’t support 510 threaded cartridges. The Yocan Stix is relatively easy to use when you get used to its features. When opening the packaging, the Yocan Stix is pre-assembled with the mouthpiece, atomizer, and battery. For this review, I had little or no issues using the Bloom Drop distillate syringe with the Yocan Stix.
- Grab your preferred extract, most preferably distillate oil
- Take the unit and hold the mouthpiece
- Turn the mouthpiece counterclockwise
- Unscrew the base connector at the bottom of the mouthpiece
- Load the desired amount of oil into the mouthpiece slowly
- Make sure to turn the mouthpiece upside down when filling it
- Keep in mind to allow some space as filling the mouthpiece
- Keep the pod/mouthpiece in its upside-down position with the battery upside down when connecting it to the pod/mouthpiece.
- Screw the battery and the mouthpiece back in place
Mostly limited to distillate oil or E-liquids for its usage, less efficient than Linx Ember, similar performance as Toqi wax cartridge
Although the Yocan Stix is extremely portable and efficient, the flavor can taste a little burnt the longer the hit. The strength of the battery and the flavor of the hit from the Yocan Stix is similar to the TOQi wax cartridge. The limitation of the Yocan Stix is that it is mostly limited to distillate oil or E-liquids for its usage. So, you will not be able to fill the Yocan Stix with any thicker concentrates. While you cannot use any thicker concentrates, this also serves as a great backup 510-threaded cartridge battery. However, I had a slightly better overall experience with the Linx Ember wax pen in terms of battery strength, flavor, and cleaning & maintenance.
Here’s a brief comparison between similar wax pens:
|Yocan Stix||Linx Ember||Toqi Wax Cartridge & Battery|
|320 mAH||350 mAH||400 mAH|
|Plastic mouthpiece, ceramic coil||Stainless steel mouthpiece, See-through vapor window||Stainless steel mouthpiece, dab tool attached to the mouthpiece|
|Only works with distillate||Works with most concentrates||Works with most concentrates|
|Low (Red), Medium (Green), High (Blue)||3.3v – 4.2v||2.8v – 3.6v|
The cleaning and maintenance are similar to the Linx Ember and the Toqi wax cartridge attachment:
- Unscrew the atomizer from the battery
- Unscrew the mouthpiece from the atomizer
- Soak the plastic mouthpiece and ceramic coil atomizer in 90%+ isopropyl alcohol
- Thoroughly rinse and dry the atomizer and mouthpiece
- Charge the battery while not in use (The micro-USB port is located on the bottom of the battery)
Overall, I would recommend the Yocan Stix for its discreet portability, smooth efficiency, relative ease of use, and solid battery strength
All things considered, this is a practical choice for anyone looking for a refillable distillate oil cartridge and battery. In addition to its function as a refillable oil pen, this also serves as a great backup 510-threaded cartridge battery with solid battery strength and efficient performance. The Yocan Stix is recommended for its discreet portability, smooth efficiency, relative ease of use, and solid battery strength. You can also find it at torontovaporizer for CAD16.99 here.
