The Yocan UNI Pro was designed and engineered to be a universal solution to all your vaping needs, a be-all-end-all box mod capable of catering to almost all the 510-threaded cartridges on the market today. Kind of like the one ring to rule them all. Interested in how Yocan achieved this feat. Here’s how.
The Yocan UNI Pro has some notable features it inherited from its predecessor, the original Yocan UNI. One of which is its ability to cater to 510-threaded cartridges up to 14mm in diameter, arguably one of the widest chambered box mods the industry has to offer. Plus, instead of having narrow cartridges wiggle and wobble inside the large chamber, the Yocan UNI Pro offers an adjustable diameter dial keeping almost any cartridge in place. Relatively, the Yocan UNI Pro also features a height adjustment tool that allows users to select between three height options. This makes the Yocan UNI Pro a box mod that not only accepts 510-threaded cartridges of any size but a box mod that allows you to comfortably and conveniently use your cartridges on-the-go.
This design is patent protected, that’s why you won’t see it on other vaporizers.
While it borrowed some ideas from the original UNI Box Mod, the pro version of the UNI has some tricks up its sleeves. This includes precision temperature settings that were formerly preset selection at high, medium, and low respectively. The new heat settings allow you to enjoy a wide temperature range of about 2.0V to 4.2V adjustable in 0.1V increments. This gives you plenty of options in finding your sweet spot. The temperature level is conveniently displayed on a crisp OLED screen as well as other important information like battery life. Of which, can be recharged with the use of a micro USB charging cable and is capable of pass-through charging allowing you to take hits even when the battery is plugged in.
The Yocan UNI Pro Box Mod comes with a full suite of safety features with accompanying display notifications like the “shorted” display protecting the battery from cartridges with resistances below 0.5-ohm and the “overtime” protection which safeguards the battery from any activity over 15 seconds.
Beating under the hood is a 650mAh internal battery. It’s non-removable making it a more stable fixture supplying the Yocan UNI Pro with reliable firepower. The dependable battery complements the precision temperature control making the Yocan UNI Pro a reliable companion for those who need to consume and reap the benefits of their materials on-the-fly. The Yocan UNI Pro Box Mod is capable of vaporizing all kinds of extracts from wax concentrates to thick oils and effortlessly extracts the active ingredients of your select materials in both its lower and higher temperature profiles.
The battery stays on for a decent amount of time but will require to be charged daily if you’re a heavy consumer. Nevertheless, you can go about your day without worrying about having to constantly recharge your batteries as the 650mAh battery can handle well enough roughly 200 pulls. However, note that several factors like cartridge resistance, voltage setting, and how long you take a drag from the UNI Pro affect these numbers. Still and all, should you find yourself low on battery, you need not worry as the Yocan UNI Pro reaches full-charge status in under an hour plugged in a power outlet and a little longer when you juice it up through a portable power bank.
Overall, the Yocan UNI Pro offers impressive performance regardless of the cartridge you put in.
Many other vaporizers claim to put in the numbers but fail to live up to their claims when put to real-world use. Surprisingly enough, for its price, the Yocan UNI Pro did not disappoint.
First, let’s start with how well the Yocan UNI Pro holds up with everyday use. Thanks to its decent build quality, the UNI Pro felt substantial to the hands. Using it as a daily driver, the Yocan UNI Pro had seen constant action in and out of the pocket, getting stashed in a bag, and ending up getting charged in a power outlet at the end of the day. To say that it held up well is an understatement, the matte-like finish on the black color variant proved that it’s not a dust nor a fingerprint magnet. Sure, it’s got some scars but it aged pretty well. The buttons remained crisp and the OLED screen gave clear readings even when you look at it in broad daylight. For once, the Yocan UNI Pro made it feel that vaporizers in this price point can be legitimate devices and not feel like toys.
Next, the precision temperature settings did not feel like a fraud and the results you can get from various voltage settings were legit. Pre-filled cartridges produced flavorful clouds of vapor on lower temperature profiles while vapor potency and density were substantially increased on higher temperature profiles.
Lastly, the Yocan UNI Pro proved portable enough when used on the daily. Sporting the same dimensions as the original UNI, it felt comfortable in the hands and in the pocket. The added “hanging hole” may prove useful in certain situations like when in concerts and parties but when used daily, the Yocan UNI Pro felt at home discreetly hidden one’s pocket.
The Yocan UNI Pro is a befitting upgrade to the original UNI. Its sharp and straight lines give it a dominating presence which makes for a proper visage for the one mod to replace all your mods.
