The Kandypens Galaxy has been on the market for some time now, and Kandypens has recently released some new accessories with the Galaxy that I think improve on the overall design of this vape pen.
The new parts are a new Tornado atomizer that gives users the option of having adjustable airflow, and an improved mouthpiece with a carb hole (similar to a bowl pipe) which is great for getting all of the vapor out of the pen after a hit.
To make this Kandypens Galaxy review easier to follow, we’re going to break it down into a few sections so we can focus on each feature specifically:
- Temperature Control
- Parts and Assembly
- Vapor Quality and Efficiency
- Battery Life
Now, let’s take a look at the upgraded Kandypens Galaxy!
Powering on the Galaxy is done the same way any e-cigarette is powered on. Simply tap the power 5 five times rapidly.
Beyond that, there are 3 different temperature settings that you can set on the Galaxy. Simply tap the power button 3 times rapidly to cycle between the heat levels. The power button will glow either red (low), green (medium), or blue (high).
Personally, they’re all more or less the same to me. I prefer low for the most part. I didn’t find it necessary to go higher than low after my testing with all the settings, but that’s just my opinion.
But you do have the ability to cycle through the 3 and figure out if you like one better than the others, which is a nice option to have.
There’s an LED that glows on the bottom of the vape that’s pretty bright, and I honestly wish you could turn this off somehow. I don’t mind it when I’m home, but when I’m walking around, I don’t want to draw anymore attention than I already am to myself.
It’s easy to conceal it by holding the battery differently, but I would like to see functionality on the battery itself to disable that for stealthy situations. Not a big deal or a deal breaker, but it was something I noticed when I took this pen out for the first time at night.
Parts and Assembly for the Kandypens Galaxy
Let’s start from the bottom of the Galaxy and go up.
The Galaxy’s battery is pretty small and threads onto anything with 510 threading.
Next up, we now have two different atomizers for the Galaxy. They’re both similar, but they do have some slight differences.
The standard dual quartz rod atomizer that has been shipping with the Galaxy since its release is still great, however I’m really liking the new Tornado atomizer after using it with the Galaxy for a bit now.
The Tornado atomizer allows the user to adjust the amount of airflow that goes through it. My only complaint about the original galaxy atomizer was the draw resistance. The new atomizer rectified my complaint though. I like an open airflow and I can get that with the Tornado atomizer.
It is also sporting dual quartz rods like the original atomizer.
And from there we’re brought to the mouthpiece, and this is yet another area Kandypens improved on from the original design. The old mouthpiece didn’t have a carb hole. The new mouthpiece does however.
This is great because you can clear out any vapor remaining in the chamber after you’re done hitting the Galaxy. Likewise, you can take your finger off the carb hole for a short moment to allow some air to mix in with your vapor while taking big hits from the Galaxy.
Vapor Quality and Efficiency
Both atomizers that come with the Galaxy special edition hold respectively the same amount of material.
I found it best to load .1-.15 of concentrate into the atomizer. I found that loading too much concentrate created really uncomfortable vapor, or will overfill the chamber creating issues for the atomizer.
1 chamber loaded with concentrate will produce about 6-10 good hits from my testing.
Both Quartz atomizers are great at efficiently vaporizing your concentrate. They vaporize all of your material efficiently and produce very large vapor clouds.
Now that we talked about the efficiency, let’s look at the vapor quality for each atomizer separately.
They’re both about the same in terms of flavor and smoothness. If you’re looking for an atomizer strictly for flavor, I would point you towards the Kandypens Gravity as it comes with a coil-less ceramic atomizer that produces a much truer flavor to the concentrate you put in it.
The flavor from the quartz coils is on par with any other quartz atomizer on the market, they are all very similar. I’m not the biggest fan of the flavor produced by quartz coils personally, I feel they’re great for getting large portable hits but not for really sitting down at home and appreciating some concentrates (that’s where the Gravity would suit you better).
However, I assume most people who are looking for a concentrate pen aren’t looking for a sit down at home vape, so my opinion is just my own and you may not agree.
After using the new tornado atomizer, I feel it really should be the standard atomizer. The adjustable airflow makes the device a lot more comfortable to use in my opinion. I hate restricted draw resistance, and it’s easy to beat that when you can adjust the airflow yourself with this atomizer.
Battery Life on the Kandypens Galaxy
The Galaxy actually has a pretty good battery life considering the size of the battery. It’s so good that sometimes I forget it needs to be charged and it dies when I go to use it, so be mindful to charge your vape.
The Galaxy is charged with a typical 510 thread charger. The battery simply threads into it, and the charger can be plugged into a USB wall socket or a USB port.
This vape pen will take about 2-3 hours to fully recharge depending on your source of power.
The Galaxy’s form factor lends itself well to portability. It’s coming in at the same size as a typical 510 e-cigarette.
You shouldn’t have any issues transporting the Galaxy, it will fit in any pocket or bag easily.
Likewise, the carrying case gives users a great way to safely transport your Galaxy if you don’t want to carry it around by itself.
Accessories with the Galaxy
The Galaxy comes with a pretty simple kit. There’s not a lot of useless extras, and you really just have what you need to effectively vaporize concentrates on the go.
When you purchase the Galaxy, you’ll receive the following:
- Galaxy Carrying Case
- Galaxy 510 Threaded Battery
- Galaxy Mouthpiece
- Concentrate Tool
- Tornado Atomizer
- Upgraded Mouthpiece with Air Carb
To conclude this review, we’re going to summarize the points I’ve made in the review into a few pros and cons.
- Outstanding vapor production
- Long battery life
- Adjustable airflow with Tornado atomizer
- Carb hole in mouthpiece
- Small and sleek form factor
- Bright LED’s
Final Subjective Assessment of the Kandypens Galaxy
The Galaxy is overall a great vaporizer pen offered by Kandypens. The Quartz coils it offers are awesome for offering large concentrate hits easily on the go.
I’ve been bringing my Galaxy with me everywhere and it has been a great companion. It’s a very discrete concentrate vape and really shouldn’t draw too much attention to yourself while it’s being used.
The Galaxy is a great option for someone who’s looking for a vaporizer that can discretely vaporize concentrates on the go, and it does an amazing job at effectively delivering potent vapor to you in a moments notice.
It’s definitely worth picking this one up.
