What’s the Difference Between the Prism and the Kandypens Prism Plus?
There are a couple of key differences between the Prism vape pen and the Kandypens Prism+, and each vape has its own advantages and disadvantages.
The KandyPens Prism+ is significantly wider than the regular Prism vape pen. In terms of height, however, they’re almost exactly the same.
The KandyPens Prism+ larger size is both its biggest advantage and its biggest disadvantage. It’s heavier and less portable, but the extra space that it occupies is put to good use.
Kandypens Prism Plus has a larger oven with a larger wax capacity, and it has a 900mAh battery that’ll hold a charge for far longer than the Prism vape pen’s 320mAh battery. The larger oven results in better vapor production, and it doesn’t need to be refilled as often.
Now, everyone should know what’s what, so without further ado, let’s jump into the rest of this KandyPens Prism review where we’ll discuss everything that vapers need to know about the Prism vape pen and the KandyPens Prism+.
How Does the Prism Perform?
Vapor Quality Review
Now that we’ve established the differences between the Prism vape pen and the Prism+, we can move on to the in-depth analysis. This officially starts the KandyPens Prism review.
The Prism vape pen’s vapor quality, in a general sense, is very good. However, the experience will vary depending on the atomizer that’s being used. The Prism comes with a dual-quartz coil atomizer as well as a ceramic atomizer.
Ceramic plate atomizers are becoming more and more common, and there’s a good reason for that. Ceramic materials don’t affect the flavor of vapor thanks to their unique physical properties. Consequently, ceramic atomizers tend to produce some seriously pure and flavorful vapor.
Plus, ceramic plate atomizers, as the name implies, are flat (like a plate.) Consequently, the vaporization is very even, resulting in a very smooth and flavorful vape session, especially combined with the Prism’s meticulous temperature control.
It’s awesome that KandyPens opted to include a dual-quartz coil atomizer as well. It’s more expensive to build with than ceramic materials, so it isn’t quite as common. It is, however, a fantastic material to use in an atomizer. Like ceramic materials, quartz won’t affect flavor.
Most vapers will prefer one over the other, but neither is better than the other. They offer equal yet very different experiences. The quartz atomizer heats up very quickly and produces strong, potent vapor.
On the other hand, the ceramic atomizer takes a little longer to heat up, but it offers a smoother, more flavorful vape session. It’s very cool that KandyPens gave their customers two atomizer options that offer two different vape styles.
Both atomizers are great for their respective vaping style, but neither have outstanding vapor production. After all, both the Prism and Prism+ max out at 430°F/221°C.
That isn’t a bad maximum temperature for concentrates, but those that want the best vapor production will prefer something that gets a little hotter. That being said, owners of the Prism or Prism+ that want to get the most vapor production should use the quartz coils atomizer.
Another factor that plays into the Prism vape pen’s fantastic vapor quality is the resin mouthpiece. Resin is yet another material that won’t affect the vapor’s flavor.
The Prism’s airpath is made entirely from materials that preserve flavor, and this is evident in the Prism vape pen’s superb vapor quality.
Of course, the vaping experience will vary between the Prism vape pen and the Kandypens Prism+. The Prism Plus can potentially produce more vapor than the regular Prism vape pen thanks to its larger chamber and wax capacity.
A vape’s vapor quality is usually one of the biggest deciding factors for most vapers. That being said, vapers with refined taste might want a little more from their vape session. Some vapers care deeply about how premium their vape looks and feels in their hand.
Next up in this comprehensive KandyPens Prism review is the manufacturing quality. How does the Prism look? How does it feel? Most importantly, will it last? Keeping reading this KandyPens Prism review and find out.
Manufacturing Quality Review
We’ve now established that the Prism vape pen’s vapor quality is superb, but no KandyPens Prism review would be complete without an in-depth look at the manufacturing quality.
These concentrate pens really couldn’t be better in terms of their build quality. Every material used in the Prism and Prism+ is premium. They both have a stainless steel finish that looks absolutely fantastic, and they feel very premium in the hand.
There’s a single button located on the front of the Prism vape pen, and it has an illuminated ring around it. It looks awesome, especially combined with the premium aesthetic that the Prism’s high-quality materials make possible.
At first glance, one might think that the Kayndpens Prism and Prism+ have a glass mouthpiece, but it’s actually just a high-quality, clear resin mouthpiece.
That’s absolutely fine because it looks like glass and brings the same premium style as well as the same superb flavor. In fact, it’s arguably even better than glass due to its superior durability.
The Prism vape pen and the Kandypens Prism Plus come with two interchangeable atomizers, both of which are held to the highest manufacturing standards. Both fit the Prism and Prism+ like a glove for effortless swapping.
The Prism’s vapor quality and build quality are both fantastic, but where does that leave the battery? Continue reading this in-depth KandyPens Prism review to find out.
Battery Life Review
A vape’s battery life is an important yet often overlooked factor. No matter how portable or powerful a vape is, it’s essentially useless without power.
The Prism features a 320mAh battery. That might not sound like a large capacity, but for a pen of this size, it’s a decent amount of power. The battery actually lasts longer than one might expect from a 320mAh battery with a maximum temperature of 430°F/221°C.
This is likely due to some power management features in the Prism’s chipset. All things considered, the battery life is very good. Of course, the Prism vape pen’s battery life is going to depend on the owner’s frequency of use and their preferred operating temperature.
The Prism vape pen’s battery life is very good, but that of the KandyPens Prism+ is great. Its 900mAh battery has nearly 3x the capacity of the Prism vape pen’s battery.
That isn’t to say that it’ll last three times as long. Keep in mind that the larger oven draws more power. Its battery life is, however, far superior to that of the Prism.
In conclusion, the Prism vape pen and the Kandypens Prism Plus both offer pretty great battery life considering their respective sizes. To learn more about the Prism’s features and other competing vaporizers, keep reading our in-depth KandyPens Prism review.
The Prism is, so far, awesome, but what about its temperatures? Does it get hot enough to do its user’s favorite concentrates justice, or does it get too hot to do so? In this section of the KandyPens Prism review, we’ll discuss exactly that.
The Prism features variable temperature control and gives the user four different temperatures to choose from: 320°F/160°C, 350°F/176°C, 390°F/198°C, and 430°F/221°C. To alternate between temperatures, simply press the power button three times rapidly.
This temperature range isn’t bad. In fact, it’s optimal for flavor-chasers. However, it would’ve been nice to have a higher temperature option for those that prioritize vapor production.
The Prism and Prism+’s vapor production isn’t bad, but there are definitely better wax vaporizers for vapers that want big clouds.
At this point, most vapers kind of understand where the Prism falls in terms of its temperatures and its vapor production, but the Prism wasn’t really made to be a powerhouse vape with the best temperature options on the market.
It was, however, made with flavor and portability in mind. Flavor has been covered pretty extensively, but we’ve not yet talked in detail about the Prism vape pen’s portability. Keep reading this KandyPens Prism review to find out exactly how portable this tiny vape is.
Again, the Prism vape pen isn’t the most versatile vape pen on the market. It was made to do just a couple of things extremely well. One thing that it does extremely well is flavor. The other is portability. In this section of the KandyPens Prism review, that’s exactly what we’re diving into.
This concentrate pen is extremely portable. It’s about 4 inches tall (or 10.5cm,) and it’s less than an inch in diameter. Most people won’t really notice it in their pocket due to how tiny it is. The KandyPens Prism+ is, however, a different story.
While the Prism+ and the Prism vape pen are nearly identical in height, the Prism+ is significantly wider.
Consequently, the Kandypens Prism Plus won’t be as pleasant to carry around. It’s definitely portable, but the portability of the regular Prism vape pen makes it look bulky. Those that prioritize portability will likely prefer the Prism vape pen.
As previously stated, the Prism and Prism+ were made to do a couple of things extremely well: namely, flavor and portability. However, those aren’t the only things it does well.
Every vaporizer, big or small, powerful or petite, has the opportunity to provide its user with a seamless and intuitive experience.
Ease of Use Review
The next thing on the itinerary for this KandyPens Prism review is the Prism’s ease of use. KandyPens made it very easy to operate the Prism and the Prism+. To turn it on, just click the power button five times. To alternate between temperatures, press the same button three times. Even loading the chamber is extremely effortless thanks to the included loading tool.
The only thing that might pose some complications to inexperienced users is finding the right temperature setting. Finding the right temperature isn’t too difficult when it comes to the ceramic atomizer. It produces pretty accommodating vapor at every temperature.
The quartz coils atomizer, on the other hand, might take a little trial and error. Its vapor isn’t harsh, but it’s very strong. Experienced wax users probably won’t have a problem with the higher temperatures, but novices should definitely start low and work their way up.
The Prism and Prism+ are very easy to use, but how easy is it to use the Prism with discretion? Next, in this KandyPens Prism review, let’s talk about the Prism’s discreetness.
No KandyPens Prism review would be complete without an in-depth look at how the unit stacks up to other discretion-oriented vapes.
The Prism Vape Pen isn’t the most discreet concentrate pen on the market, but it’ll be discreet enough for most. The black version of the Prism Vape Pen is particularly stealthy and recommended to those that prioritize discretion.
The only thing that might draw unwanted attention to the Prism is its illuminated LED ring. Luckily, it’s quite small, and due to its location, it’ll usually be covered by the user’s hand or thumb during use.
The same can be said for the Prism+, except that its size makes it less discreet than the Prism. It’s still a pretty discreet wax pen, but the regular Prism has a slight edge over the Prism+ in terms of discreteness.
The regular Prism will be less noticeable both in the user’s pockets and during use. While the Prism+ is undeniably more noticeable in every respect, its appeal lies in its battery life and vapor production.
Now that virtually every aspect of the Prism and Prism+ has been covered, the KandyPens Prism review is nearing its end. However, before wrapping it up, let’s talk about a few of the Prism’s most competitive rivals.
Kandypens Prism Plus Competitors
Pax 3 Complete Kit
The Pax 3 Complete Kit is significantly more expensive than both the Prism and Prism+ Kits at $250, but it provides more accessories, more features, and more functionality.
For instance, the Pax 3 Complete Kit comes with two mouthpieces and three different oven inserts that Pax calls “oven lids.” It comes with the standard oven lid, the half-pack oven lid, and the wax oven insert.
With these oven lids/inserts, the Pax 3 can vaporize both dry herb and concentrates. With that in mind, it’s already providing twice as much functionality as the Prism and Prism+.
Additionally, it comes with a few of the more common vape kit amenities, such as screens, a cleaning kit, a loading tool, and a carrying case. Plus, it’s worth mentioning that legitimate Pax purchases come with a 10-year warranty.
The Pax 3 Complete Kit comes with a lot more than the KanydPens Prism and Prism Plus in terms of both functionality and accessories, but again, it comes at a price.
The Prism’s saving grace is its concentrate performance. Sure, it won’t vaporize dry herb, but its wax performance is far superior to that of the Pax 3.
While the Prism vape pen’s maximum temperature setting of 430°F/221°C isn’t ideal, it’s far superior to the Pax 3’s maximum temperature setting of 420°F/215°C.
The Pax 3’s operating temperatures are ideal for dry herb, but those that vape concentrates more often might be happier with the Prism vape pen or the KandyPens Prism+. There lies the primary difference between these two vapes.
The Pax 3 is really an herb vaporizer that can also vaporizer concentrates, but it can’t do so very well. It’s a device that’s all about versatility. The Prism and Prism+ are, on the other hand, devices aimed at wax users that want the best concentrate vape session.
Mig Vapor SOL
The Mig Vapor SOL is a vaporizer that’s a lot like the Prism and Prism Plus in terms of its price and its overall functionality. Like the Prism and Prism+, it’s an ultra-portable concentrate vaporizer.
Also, like the Prism and Prism+, it comes with a ceramic atomizer as well as a dual-quartz coil. The Mig Vapor SOL does, however, have a hidden concentrate storage compartment in its atomizers that won’t be found in the Prism’s atomizers.
That’s an awesome and thoughtful feature to include, and a lot of vapers will really appreciate it. However, the Mig Vapor SOL won’t perform on par with the Prism vape pen and the KandyPens Prism Plus in terms of flavor.
While the Prism and Prism+ feature variable temperature control, the Mig Vapor SOL features variable wattage control. While, on the surface, the difference might seem minor, when it comes to flavor, there’s a big difference between the two.
Variable temperature devices like the Prism feature variable voltage, but it monitors and regulates the temperature as well. In other words, it’ll increase or decrease its voltage output to maintain the desired temperature.
Variable voltage devices like the Mig Vapor SOL, on the other hand, offer various voltage options, but the operating temperature isn’t regulated to the same extent. The temperature can vary more, which results in a less consistent and (usually) less flavorful vape session.
While the Prism and Mig Vapor SOL have a lot in common, the primary difference between the two is their heating method. The Prism is going to be better for flavor, but the Mig Vapor SOL comes very close to the Prism in that regard.
The two are very close in terms of overall functionality and performance, and the choice is going to come down to the user’s personal preference. The ability to store concentrates within Mig Vapor SOL is extremely cool, but the Prism’s superior flavor is extremely valuable as well.
The Kandypens Prism: Final Verdict
That concludes this KandyPens Prism review. Hopefully, those that were on the fence before have a pretty clear idea of what the Prism and KandyPens Prism+ offer.
The Prism isn’t the perfect vaporizer, but to be fair, no vaporizer is a perfect vaporizer. The perfect vaporizer does not and will not ever exist. That’s because every person’s idea of a “perfect” vape is different and depends on that user’s particular needs.
The Prism vape pen will be perfect for those that want a flavorful concentrate vape session in their pocket at all times. It won’t be perfect for those that want the best vapor production or the vaporizer with the most versatility. That isn’t what the Prism is about.
The Prism is all about doing one thing extremely well, and that one thing is producing flavorful concentrate vapor. It even goes so far as to include two different atomizers, because “ideal flavor,” in terms of concentrates, will mean different things to different people.
They have both of those groups covered. The quartz atomizer is going to be ideal for the more traditional concentrate users that want a strong, intense hit, while the ceramic atomizer will be better for newcomers that just want a smooth, flavorful hit.
Even in the areas where the Prism isn’t the best, it manages to perform very admirably. For instance, its vapor production isn’t the best on the market, but it’s by no means a letdown. It’s actually quite good. It just might not be enough for those that are used to far more.
The Prism and Prism+ are awesome devices that function exactly as they were intended to. Those that love concentrates and want a premium, portable vape for flavorful, on-the-go sessions will love the Prism vape pen and the KandyPens Prism+.
