Yocan is definitely no stranger to the vaporizer game, especially when it comes to vaping concentrates. This is probably why their latest device, the Yocan Loaded, a dedicated wax vaporizer is making waves with its extensive feature set crammed into a tiny and portable frame. Available in an array of 4 colorways to choose from (black, white, blue, red), the Yocan Loaded might not look like much but its got a ton of vaping horsepower at its disposal with its hearty 1400mAh battery.
While the Yocan Loaded might not seem like much upon first glance, holding onto the device for the first time was definitely enough to erase any misgivings we might have had towards the device. The device is coated with a pleasant satin-like finish that feels great to the touch and doesn’t feel cheap at all. All the bits and pieces fit together well with tight tolerances that erase any sign of annoying creaks and rattles evident in poorer made devices and the inclusion of a magnetic lid for the coil chamber is an excellent touch which further contributes to the device’s premium feel.
We also appreciated the well designed and ergonomic mouthpiece that feels comfortable to vape on. The fact that it extends further definitely contributes to the comfort that the Yocan Loaded offers when vaping at higher than normal temperatures as it lets the vapor cool a bit more before it reaches your lips. The Yocan Loaded also makes use of a magnetically attached silicon container at the bottom of the device to help cut down on additional baggage as it functions well as a storage solution for any extra concentrates that you intend on vaping for the day.
Due to the inclusion of two types of quartz coils in the Yocan Loaded kit, you could say that our expectations were a bit on the high side when it comes to vaping performance. The Yocan Loaded did not disappoint however as it does a great job of providing copious amounts of vapor and heat despite its diminutive size. We feel safe to say that even the most hardcore vapers won’t be left wanting when vaping with this device thanks to its high output, especially when vaping with the included quartz coil
Flavor quality is every bit as good as we would have expected from this device thanks to the quartz coil design and we had no problem experiencing the full range of flavor wrought on by the terpenes in the wax we used. While flavor production on the Yocan Loaded might not be as dense or “pure” compared to dedicated dabbing setups, it still manages to make things pretty close which is already more than we ask for considering the size, portability, and ease of use with the Yocan Loaded.
We initially had some concerns regarding the battery life of the Yocan Loaded. While the device did make use of a 1400mAh integrated battery to power the coils, taking our first heavy hit on the device made us think that there’s no way that the battery can keep up with the high output that the Yocan Loaded manages to deliver. We were proven wrong, however, as the Yocan Loaded kept chugging on throughout the testing process and managed to last almost 3 hours of continuous vaping before it started giving off signs that a recharge was required.
It’s important to note though that the Yocan Loaded isn’t going to be your all in one solution; it cant vaporize dry herbs and only works with concentrates. We honestly didn’t have an issue with this as most hybrid devices that promise both wax and dry herb vaporizing usually manage to disappoint when it comes to performance in either one or both departments.
While the minimalist facade of the Yocan Loaded might give you the impression that it’s a straight-up shooter and only works with one temperature setting, the device actually comes loaded with three available temperature presets that offer a good range of options when it comes to getting your ideal vaping experience.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Thanks to the magnetic lid that easily opens to reveal the chamber used to store the coil, accessing the coils for cleaning and maintenance has been a pleasant experience by far with the Yocan Loaded. If you’re looking to into giving the coils a deep cleaning after a major vaping session, its simple enough to remove the coil head to give it a good soak in some isopropyl alcohol to remove the accumulated gunk.
If a minor cleaning is all you’re after, a q-tip that’s been dipped in alcohol acts as a great swab to remove light gunking that’s managed to accumulate in the coil. Just be sure to not to use anything sharp to poke the coil with as that might end up breaking or damaging the coil assembly. Giving the mouthpiece a good blow also helps clear out the airflow pathways that might have gotten some debris lodged into it.
How to Use the Yocan Loaded
Thanks to the one button operation of the Yocan Loaded, there’s not much of a learning curve when it comes to getting the device set up and up and running. The magnetic tray housing the coil easily opens up and installing a new coil or replacing an old one can be done in just a few seconds. The kit also includes a dabbing tool which can be used to easily load your concentrates into the coil. After you’ve fully charged the device via the included micro USB port and cable and loaded up the chamber you’re now ready to vape.
A simple 5 presses on the singular firing button turns it on and starts the heating up process of the coil. During this period, you’re able to choose between the 3 temperature presets by pressing the firing button 3 times to cycle between temperature modes. At this point, you’re now free to inhale away! Turning off the Yocan Loaded is just as easy with another 5 presses on the firing button if ever you feel like cutting your vaping session short.
