The G Pen Elite is a conduction based vaporizer that features a ceramic heating chamber and precise temperature control. As we have pointed out in other reviews, G Pens have not always lived up to their vaporizer name, often combusting dried material even when the unit is branded for herbs. The Elite tries to change the tide of Grenco vaporizers, offering significant design improvements that make this unit a more viable option when choosing your first vaporizer. However at the end of the day it is still a conduction based unit which has been available for 2 years and its already showing its age when other units within the same price point, like the Utillian 721, offer convection heating and better battery life. With any product, pros are inevitably accompanied by some cons, so let us give you the 411 on the highs and lows of the Elite.
