Gpen Dash+ (Plus) Review

Review Summary

The G Pen Dash Plus is lauded for its slim design, ease of use, and efficient hybrid heating system. It produces thick vapor with good airflow and quality. The device is easy to load and features a cooling mechanism for less harsh vapor. It’s considered great value for money, especially for beginners. The only minor issue is that it can get hot with back-to-back use.

Background

Today we have a review of the new G-Pen Dash+ Dry herb vaporizer. It retails for $150, and you can use coupon code TVG20 for a 20% discount directly from Gpen.com, so that brings it down to $120, which is pretty sweet. 

Design & Features

The Dash+ follows the same design principles as other G-Pen products. It is slim, ergonomic, feels well made, and it is straightforward to use.

The front has a power button, an LED display, and up/down buttons. Both sides have air intake holes, and the right side also has a USB-C charging port. 

The casing is made from zinc alloy, and this vape has a “clean airpath,” meaning the vapor path is isolated from electronics or anything that can contaminate the vapor. 

The magnetic mouthpiece sits on top, and it has a built-in spiral ceramic vapor cooling mechanism. As the vapor passes through here, it cools down and becomes less harsh.

Titanium Chamber

The opening of the chamber is shaped like a funnel which makes loading it very easy. The herb just slides in there. 

As always, you should pack the herb pretty dense but not enough to restrict the airflow. A good place to start is packing it enough so that if you wiggle the vape, nothing falls off.  

The chamber is made from titanium, and the Dash+ uses a hybrid heating system. It uses both conduction and convection for efficient heating.

The herb chamber of the Dash+ fits around .5 gr of dry herb

Conduction means that the herb is heated by contact with a hot surface, in this case, the sides of the oven, and convection means that with each inhale, hot air is pulled into the oven to boost the extraction. 

Usage

To use the Dash+, I'll hold the button for three seconds, then select a temp using the +/- buttons, and then double-click to start heating up.

The vape will vibrate, and the display will show the current temperature as it is heating up. Once the set temp has reached, it will vibrate again.

Performance 

The Dash+ produced loads of noticeable thick vapor. The dual air intake holes create very good airflow, and the vape has very low draw resistance. So inhaling through it is easy and natural. 

The vapor quality is very good considering the $150 price tag (well, actually, $120 if you use the coupon code below.) So at $120, I think this is an incredible value. It is super simple to use and probably the perfect beginner vaporizer. Cheap, well-made, and performs a lot better than other vapes in the price range. 

The only issue it has, which is actually very common among ultra-slim vapes, is that the heat has nowhere to dissipate, so the unit can get hot if you do multiple back-to-back sessions. But for 99%, this shouldn't be a problem, especially if you usually vape solo.
