The J-Pen at a Glance

The J-Pen by Vaporous Technologies is a portable vape pen made exclusively for concentrates. Due to its compact size and simple appearance at first glance, I had a good feeling about this pen when I popped it out of its sturdy travel tin. The pen itself stands at about 4.5 inches tall and has a slim black profile for its cylindrical frame, making it very easy and discrete to both use and transport around in either your pocket, backpack, or purse.
Another big reason this pen scores highly with me is its short yet effective mouthpiece. When I first saw it, I had initially thought that the good folks at Vaporous had forgotten to even include a mouthpiece. I was pleasantly relieved to find that the mouthpiece on this pen is short with a wide opening, making it even easier to transport while still getting the most vapor out of my concentrates. As far as portable vape pens go, the J-Pen scores high marks for its compact yet sturdy build and sleek design for incredibly easy use and transport.
Operating and Using the J-Pen
Loading this pen and powering it on is pretty much identical to most other vape pens out there. Unscrewing the mouthpiece reveals a very deep ceramic atomizer with dual coils, which I was pleased to find. The dab tool that’s included really comes in handy here, as the titanium tool is shaped to have a longer, flat-headed end to help you put your choice of concentrate in the chamber easier.
Turning on the pen requires five clicks of the single button on the device. Everything about loading and preparing the pen for use was a breeze. Screwing and unscrewing the pen to access the chamber is effortless even after multiple uses, and the deep chamber allows you to fully load this pen with a good amount of your favorite concentrate.
I enjoyed vaping with the J-Pen. None of the successive hits after the first one were as flavorful or big, but I was able to get a consistent pull each time during my sessions with this pen. All three light “settings” were able to produce a good hit amount of vapor for me. My wax lasted a good while in this pen before having to reload, and I was already nice and toasty before I had to do so. Each session and setting provided a steady vapor draw with a decent amount of flavor from my wax, and these qualities still kept up towards the end of those sessions.
Overall, the J-Pen by Vaporous Technologies is a discrete and reliable option for portable concentrate vaping. Its size and profile makes it really easy to carry around and use wherever you go. I wasn’t super impressed with the vaping performance of the pen, but I will give credit to the consistent hits I was able to always get due to the unit’s sturdy construction and open airflow.
Generally speaking, the J-Pen is a solid option for anyone who’s looking for a reliable, functional portable wax pen. The $74.99 price tag makes this device a great middle-of-the-road option that will get you solid construction and reliable performance without having to break the bank.
