Since G Pen burst onto the vaporizer scene in 2012 with the first tank system specifically designed for “personal aromatherapy regimens,” they’ve been responsible for propelling the industry forward with a steady stream of revolutionary products.
While their Elite and Pro flower vaporizers, the Nova concentrate pen, and the Connect concentrate attachment have all been blockbusters in their own right, none are quite as game changing as G Pen’s newest creation: the G Pen Roam.
The Roam is G Pen’s first totally portable concentrate vaporizer with a self-contained water filtration system. While that may sound like a mouthful, don’t worry, we’re here to break it down for you.
Here’s our take on the new G Pen Roam.
What is the G Pen Roam?
The Roam is a fully portable electronic dab rig in the form of a large vape. The first of its kind, the Roam features a spill-proof, self-contained borosilicate glass hydrotube, a fully quartz tank, and a 1300mAh lithium-ion battery that heats to temperature within seconds of activation — delivering a perfect dab-like vapor experience with every hit.
What truly sets the Roam apart is the water filtration feature. Normally, portable concentrate vaporizers hit rather harshly, delivering concentrate vapor at high temperatures directly into the lungs. It can be rough. By introducing water filtration to the portable vape, the Roam offers smooth vapor with a dab rig experience that you can hit anywhere.
Coming in at $249.95, the Roam is G Pen’s most expensive product, making it a bit of an investment, albeit a worthwhile one.
What can you vape with the Roam?
Thanks to its fully quartz tank and super strong battery, the Roam is capable of vaporizing any conceivable concentrate, even crystalline substances like shatter. Because it’s a concentrate vaporizer, it does not work with flower or other ground material.
How do you use the G Pen Roam?
Now that you know what The Roam brings to the table, how exactly do you use this new device?
How to charge the Roam
The Roam uses USB charging and comes with a USB charging cable. The battery level is displayed on the LED screen. Brand new, straight-out-the-box Roams need about 45 minutes to fully charge.
Press the power button located on the Roam battery five times to power on/off.
The buttons located above the LED screen can adjust the temperature up and down by 25 degree intervals. The temperature range is 600 — 800°F. To enter “Max Mode” (where the device outputs full power without temperature control), press the up button one time when the device is set at 800°F. If the device begins to overheat, a warning will be displayed and the device will stop until a safe operating temperature is reached.
Filling up the water tube and concentrate tank
Slide the device apart to reveal the water tank and connected mouthpiece. Remove the water tank and fill to the black line with a very small amount of water. Replace tank and connect back to the battery.
Open the quartz concentrate tank on the top of the device, and fill with desired concentrate using the tool found inside the Roam kit.
Heating for use
For automatic heat activation, press the power button two times. Once the device has heated to optimal temperature, the device will vibrate, notifying you that it’s time to start hitting from the mouthpiece. The Roam will remain at temperature for 30 seconds, then vibrate again before being deactivated. Press the power button an additional two times to extend the session for 10 seconds.
For manual heat activation, hold the power button while the device is powered on. The device will heat up to selected temperature, vibrate to indicate that temperature has been reached, and maintain that temperature until the button is released or until the 30-second time limit has elapsed.
How to clean the Roam
Clean the Roam like you would any other vaporizer or concentrate device, with cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol. All parts of the Roam are removable for separate cleaning.
What’s the appeal?
Aside from being sleek, discrete, and easy-to-use, the Roam is exciting because there’s nothing else like it on the market. By merging the concepts of concentrate vaporizer and portable dab rig into this wild new creation, G Pen has created the most exciting product of Summer 2020 — one that could significantly elevate all upcoming days spent enjoying the great outdoors.
Thought taking a dab before jumping off a waterfall sounded too good to be true? With the Roam, you can comfortably get high on concentrates anytime, anywhere. No one will suspect a thing, because they’ve never seen anything like it before.
