Today there are thousands of different personal vaping devices available in styles ranging from short box mod style devices to slim vaporizer pens. In addition to this multitude, personal vaporizers can be completely bare, fully adjustable to some degree, or anywhere in between. Highly customizable models tend to deter people who haven’t started vaping, but ultra-basic devices often provide a sub-optimal experience and result in powerful hits that can discourage people from trying to vaporize CBD.
To simplify the purchase, many CBD manufacturers have started selling their own batteries to accompany their pre-filled cartridges or oils. It’s a good concept that takes some of the guesswork out of it for consumers, but most of the batteries we tried… were inadequate. However, when we saw that Joy Organics had started selling a battery to accompany their pre-filled CBD vaping cartridges, we were intrigued.
We’ve been impressed with every product from Joy that we’ve tried so far, so we thought it only fair to try their vaping battery. Sleek and elegant, the white barrel-style pen battery is discreet and lightweight, making it extremely portable for both on-the-go and at-home use. The battery itself is approximately 3.25 inches long and just under half an inch in diameter. With the pre-filled Joy Organics cartridge installed, the barrel is about 4.75 inches long.
For a small, simple barrel device with no buttons or tactile controls, the battery works extremely well. Since it’s controlled by the strength and duration of the draws you take, it’s very intuitive, even for new vape users. The design makes it easy to draw exactly the type of hit you’re looking for, from a quick puff to a big, dense cloud. Here, we’ll discuss the details of the Joy Organics vape, how it works, and our experience with it.
What’s Included with the Joy Organics CBD Vape Oil Pen
The pen is simply packaged in a slim cardboard box. The insert, which houses the device and the accompanying vape cartridge (the battery includes a pre-filled 0.5ml CBD cartridge for the purchase price), slides easily out of the body of the device using a divider at the bottom to expose the battery on one side, the cartridge on the other, and the USB charger in the middle.
The battery fits standard 510-size cartridges, including most of the pre-filled CBD cartridges currently available (we tested it with cartridges from four different brands and each one fit perfectly). We love this decision by Joy – it’s a little frustrating when brands try to encourage exclusivity by making their products only slightly incompatible with off-the-shelf products, and we think steps like this encourage a greater spirit of collaboration in the industry. This is a small detail, but we think it’s a positive.
The Joy Organics CBD Vape Oil Pen Unit Itself
We were a bit impressed with this battery in a way we didn’t expect. Is it a bit… stylish? It’s beautiful in its simplicity, especially when paired with Joy Organics’ pre-filled CBD cartridges (creating a satisfying white-on-white look). The body of the vape is pure white, with no logo or power button, and the base acts as an indicator during charging and use. Even those of us who usually prefer darker finishes on our devices noted that this is an aesthetically pleasing vaporizer.
The device has a decent weight, light enough for easy handling without feeling flimsy. We found it surprisingly durable – it survived several moderate drops (1 meter or less) without a single scratch. It holds up well for carrying in a backpack, pocket or purse without leaking, even when using competing cartridges.
The battery took about an hour to charge from empty, glowing pink while charging and flashing when the battery was fully charged before completely shutting off. Once charged, we got about 2-3 days of continuous use – not too bad considering the size. Even if you smoke all day, it will last you all day without having to charge it on the go.
This is one of the most intuitive vaporizers we’ve tried. No temperature control, no buttons to press, nothing to mess up or do wrong. Simply inhale for up to 10 seconds, adjusting the inhale length to manipulate the vapor however you like. As you take your hit, the LED light on the base will glow pink (indicating that the vaporizer is heating up). After 10 seconds of continuous inhalation, the light will start blinking, indicating that the battery has reached peak temperature and it’s time to finish your shot.
The buttonless design prevents the vaporizer from accidentally getting caught in your pocket or bag and preserves battery life (and vaporizer oil!) when you need it. It’s extremely easy to use and we like that too – but we can see a potential problem. Since there is no way to “lock” or turn off the vape, it can be picked up by a small child and easily used without supervision.
Think about it if you have curious little hands and keep the vape out of reach when not in use. Although it carries no risk of serious physical harm (CBD carries no risk of overdose in humans and is not psychoactive in any way), we believe that CBD is a medication and should therefore only be administered to children under adult supervision.
The choice to use CBD as part of your child’s recovery regimen is yours (and there are many reasons to do so) and we fully support that decision – with supervision by you. Overall, this is a relatively small detail, but one worth noting, especially for parents of children who are curious about everything, especially things they shouldn’t touch at that delightful and dangerous stage of their development.
Joy Organics CBD Vape Oil Pen Performance
The battery holds up surprisingly well to a week of highly mobile use. We took this electronic cigarette to a concert, a night out with friends, hiking, on the road – everywhere we went. It has been dropped, sat on and even accidentally stepped on once (oops), with no damage whatsoever. Not even the beautiful eggshell polish spilled. For something that looks so light and minimal, it can pack some pretty impressive hits.
This battery ranks in the top 3 of our favorite vape pens for ease of use and customizability. Getting the right size is as natural as breathing – just take the hit you want to take and stop when you’re done. Inhale for 4-5 seconds for lighter, smoother hits; puffing for 10 seconds will result in thick, dense clouds with a more earthy flavor profile. The unit doesn’t get hot enough to burn the oil, which ensures a smooth and flavorful hit on every level.
We really like this battery, especially for beginner vapor users. It’s a very well thought out product, with a lot of attention to detail, and that attention is evident in the user experience. The pen is functional, pleasant to use, made of safe materials and one of the most intuitive devices we have tried. We think this pen is worth the extra money, especially if you want to try Joy Organics’ CBD pre-filled cartridges.
Is $99.95 a Good Value for the Joy Organics CBD Vape Oil Pen?
All in all, we were pleasantly surprised and impressed by this small but tough vaporizer. What it lacks in features, it makes up for with ease of use and intuitive controls. Since it creates from the smallest hits to the most intense clouds, it’s suitable for many different vaporizing styles (and sharing atomization doesn’t require a 3-minute explanation beforehand).
As far as we know, the vaporizer is not currently available on its own – it can only be purchased in combination with a pre-filled CBD cartridge from Joy Organics. The price difference between the cartridge itself ($79.95) and the package ($99.95) is only $20, making the vaporizer surprisingly affordable given its quality and durability. And since it’s compatible with just about every 510 cartridge imaginable, even if you don’t care about the cartridge it comes with (we think they’re pretty awesome ourselves) it’s still perfectly usable.
If you’re already looking at vaporizer cartridges from Joy Organics, consider going with the bundle, especially if you’re just getting started with vaporizers. It may not be the only vaporizer product you’ve ever used, but it will definitely be a regular in the rotation.
DISCLAIMER: Joy Organics has since stopped selling their vaporizer products. If you are looking for a vape product, we recommend cbdMD as a K2C favorite!
