Yocan Falcon is a 6 in 1 Vaporizer reinvents vape the way we see it.
Yocan Falcon 6 in 1 vaporizer
When you first lay eyes on the Yocan Falcon in this vape review, it may be tough not to suspect some flirtation happened between a water pipe and a 1950s sci-fi film’s rocket ship. But the unconventional looks of the Falcon bring with them some unconventional — and very exciting — possibilities.
Yocan bills the Falcon as a six-in-one vaporizer. Considering the fact that it comes with two interchangeable mouthpieces and three interchangeable coils, it’s well enough equipped to live up to that billing; we had to get our hands on one to put it through its paces and find out just how well it delivers the goods. Also, look to the end of this Yocan Falcon review to win your own free vaporizer in our vape giveaway.
In The Box
Inside the Yocan Falcon’s very clean packaging — aside from an image of the device contained inside, the pristine box is decorated only with Yocan and Falcon branding — the unit and its army of accessories nestle in tidy, well-separated compartments.
The Falcon itself is what grabs your eye when you first open the package. Depending on which color you’ve chosen — colors include black, silver, red, blue, and purple — it’s hard to miss when it’s lying there center stage just waiting for your hand to set it free.
5 Color Options
Also included, of course, are its three coils: One quartz tri-coil, one pancake coil, and one XTAL coil tip. Next, you’ll find two mouthpieces: one is a glass bulb that can hold water in order to add a nice, smoothing moisture to your vape; the other is a shorter metallic mouthpiece, should that be your preference. Then there is, naturally, a very handy magnetic storage base stand, for the user’s convenience.
Finally, the requisite maintenance accessories, in the form of a pick, cleaning brush, and mini cleaning brush. A USB-C charging cable is, of course, also included, as well as a user manual.
Specs & Features
The main body of the Falcon packs an integrated 1,000mAh battery. On the forward face of the device, you’ll find a simple, square firing button. At either end of the Falcon, you’ll find threading. At the top, this threading is for the mouthpiece of your choice; at the bottom, the threading will attach and detach your coil of choice.
Getting to the coils, the three options include the XTAL tip-shaped coil, which Yocan refers to as a “nectar collector”, ideal for dabs. The pancake coil is the Falcon’s solution for dry herb vaping, while the Quartz Triple Coil is intended for use with wax concentrates. It should be mentioned that each of these coils is proprietary to the Yocan Falcon exclusively.
Setting up the Falcon for first use could hardly be any simpler; after unboxing the device, we simply plugged in the USB-C charging cable and let the device rest while we read through the user manual. Once the device was charged, we added dry herb to the pancake coil’s compartment, threaded it onto the main body of the Falcon, then threaded the metal mouthpiece onto the other end.
The performance of the Falcon is, to put it simply, astonishing. Giving the device time to pre-heat the coil, then pressing the firing button and taking a deep, deep hit, it was like getting hit by a truck full of warmth and flavor. It was everything we love about smoking, just… better. All the power, all the flavor, none of the harshness, and none of the waste.
Is it just the difference between vaping and smoking, though? No. We’ve used competitors’ offerings — we’ll stay away from naming names, here, because we’re not out to give anyone a hard time — but when it comes to dry herb, many of the competitors we’ve tried don’t hit as hard, while still maintaining vivid, authentic flavor, as the Falcon does.
Next up, it was time to try the XTAL tip. It should be noted that, after a few solid rips from the pancake coil, the hit from the XTAL pretty much put a halt to testing for the remainder of that day of testing. The XTAL tip, specifically, and the Falcon in general with its built-in storage, is just that effective.
But what’s truly remarkable about the Falcon, aside from its power, is its pocketability. Not that we’re out and about, owing to present health-related regulations, but when those are eventually lifted, the Falcon will prove itself as a pocket-friendly companion for social gatherings.
The 1,000mAh battery provides plenty of longevity for extended sessions, and when it does come time for a recharge, the USB-C charging cable makes that recharge time pass more quickly than the older micro-USB standard, which should keep you nicely satisfied almost any time.
That’s not to say that it’s all pluses, of course, because nothing is. If there was one area in which we’d have to knock the Falcon, though, it’s also one of the Falcon’s strengths — its size. That is to say, the Falcon is very easy to lose track of if you get a touch “distracted” at the height of a session and set it down. For this reason, we strongly advise users to avoid the Falcon in black colorway and opt for something that catches a less-than-focused eye a little more easily, such as red or purple.
