Design and Features

The Gpen Connect is not new vape type. If you are a concentrate vaper or e-rig user, you may have seen this design before with the Yocan Torch. All those two devices are portable eNail vape devices.

The main body of Gpen Connect has a thin, somewhat cylindrical shape by itself, but the somewhat large rectangular battery pack connects magnetically to the rest of the device. The cover of the ceramic bowl is also magnetic, which is nice and convenient.

The G Pen Connect is a revolutionary alternative to conventional concentrate consumption that heats to temperature within five seconds of activation to deliver high-density, quality vapor production without the hassle of a torch and exposed nail.

As for the Yocan Torch, you’ll see two vertical cylinders. The shorter side is the atomizer, while the taller side is your battery. At the bottom, there is a tiered connector that is designed to fit into any glass water piece.

The Yocan Torch Portable eNail is an attachment for 14mm and 18mm sized water pipes (not included), it makes dabbing safer for anyone whether on-the-go or at home. The Yocan Torch can change any bong into a concentrate vaporizer.

Temperature Control

The G Pen Connect gives you three temperature settings to choose from, which are instead voltage-regulated at 3.1v, 3.6v, and 4.3v. This is fairly standard for budget wax pens, but for a device in this price range, we were hoping to see a little bit better control.

Yocan Torch don’t have temperature control function. But Yocan device have more coil options for choose. The Yocan Torch is a dome-less portable eNail that takes all the danger out of dabbing.

Battery Life
Gpen Conect comes with an 850mAh battery, you get a pretty decent amount of battery to play with before it goes flat. In practice, you can expect between 10-15 sessions on a single charge, which is definitely more than enough for a whole day of use and then some.

The Yocan Torch is a really great enail and it will take your concentrates experience to a whole new level. It’s easy to use once you read the manual and the flavor you get from it is just insane. Vapor is also off the charts and it’s a great thing you get the spare coil.

Portability


A portable e-rig? Not so fast, you’ll still need a bubbler or at least a j-hook to run it through! Still, it’s an ultra-convenient way to take a pretty full-fledged dab experience with you on the go.

While the device itself is pretty covert and not really conspicuous, taking a hit from a bubbler with it surely will gather a lot of attention if you’re out and about.

Thus, either Yocan Torch or the G Pen Connect is really best suited for at-home use and bringing to a friend’s place, unless you’re comfortable taking hits from a dab rig out in public!
