G Pen Elite 2 Vaporizer
G Pen has returned to the portable vaporizer market with a massive upgrade over the original G Pen Elite. With new features on the Elite 2 like an isolated air path, hybrid heating, and a high-quality zirconia mouthpiece, they’ve revived the model to be competitive with the best of them!
HD User Interface
With a new HD user interface screen with all of the settings and information you could ever ask for, the Elite 2 is a true third-generation cannabis vaporizer.
The main shining star of the settings is the optional convection heating boost, but all of the other settings are in-depth enough to let you try and perfect your sessions as well!
With a fast heat-up time of 20 seconds, you’ll be puffing on tasty terpenes in no time flat.
Modern USB-C charging
One of the most significant drawbacks of the original Elite model was the 3-hour charging time.
With the upgrade to the more modern USB-C charging, charging time has been brought down to 1.5 hours from dead. You’ll also get around an hour of run time (8 sessions) from the proprietary 2100mAh lithium-ion battery, which is decent considering the HD screen. After 90 seconds of inactivity, your Elite 2 will also automatically turn off to preserve battery life. This is a great feature that prevents you returning to an accidentally dead vape!
Optional Hybrid Heating
Especially in the first few minutes of your session, the terpene flavors of your cannabis strain will really shine through!
Consistency is one of the definite strong points of this unit, though, as you’ll always feel like you had a good session. You’ll find the vapor quality has vastly improved compared to the original Elite! Using a mainly conduction-based ceramic oven, you’ll have the option to turn on convection heating for more hot air to run through your chamber, which will extract your THC faster. The new cooling spiral ceramic mouthpiece insert will also make your vapor noticeably cooler compared to other models.
By using a zirconia mouthpiece, the glass-like substance really helps to make the vapor quality that much smoother to inhale.
Durable and Portable
With a durable zinc frame and 4.5in x 1in design, you’ll be able to take the G Pen Elite 2 anywhere you want without fear. Thanks to its jet black and size, most people will think that you’re just using an E-Cig. With the high-quality ceramic oven, maintenance is as easy as using a vape cleaning wipe on the oven and the different parts of the mouthpiece.
While the metal body might heat up if you like back-to-back sessions, G PEN has included a silicone vape sleeve to help this, as well as add some durability if you prefer vaping on the go.
How to use the G Pen Elite 2?
- Charge your Elite 2 to full
- Remove the mouthpiece and fill the chamber with a medium grind of flower
- Hold the power button down for three seconds, set the temperature with the up and down arrows, and then double-click the power button to begin a session
- Press the power button five times to access the menu and adjust settings like brightness, haptic feedback, F to C, and session timer
- Knock out the bowl with the pick tool on the bottom of the vape
Dosing Capsule Compatible
With the XMAX V3 Pro Steel Dosing Capsules and XMAX V3 Pro Wax Cups, you’ll be able to use them to help keep your chamber clean from flower and dabs safely in the chamber. For added portability, you’ll also be able to fill as many dosing capsules as you want for transportation in a vape case. This will make chamber reloading and maintenance much easier!
Use the G Pen Elite 2 with a Bubbler
With the 14mm whip bubbler, you’ll be able to take out the mouthpiece cap and insert, put in the small glass mouthpiece from the bubbler kit, and attach it to the silicone whip for a super-cooled and super fun session customization experience. You can read more about that in our G Pen Elite 2 Review.
2 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
G Pen is an industry leading manufacturer and ensures the G Pen Elite 2 for up to three years upon registration on their website. They have a great customer service team and should be able to help you out should a defect arise.
This thing absolutely slaps at 380F. Needs a tightly packed bowl, and 0.5g chamber listing is pushing it, but excellent vapor quality overall.
Had it for a few days now and all I can see is wow – What a big upgrade over the original G Pen Elite. Better build materials, the screen is top-tier, and the convection boost has it on par with the Mighty+ for vapor in my opinion. The only downside would be the battery, under an hour on my max temperature usage.

Smooth, easy, and if you take long, patient draws, you can get some Deep Smoke
This is seriously an amazing vape. It blows the original Elite out of the water. The convection boost ups the vapor quality to be comparable with the Mighty and the HD screen is nice over the super bland ones in the market.
The g pen elite 2 has amazing flavor that has been better than my Arizer Solo 2. The airflow can be a bit tight if you overpack or overcompress the bowl, but overall the design is super sleek and feels high quality like my friend’s Mighty plus.
Amazing flavor. Very consistent. Lots of room for customization. For sure the best portable vaporizer I’ve owned.
I’m in love with the new Elite 2 but on higher temperatures you start to lose the flavor of your terpenes and it can get warm in the hand and on the lips. As well anything above 400 Fahrenheit is a bit harsh on my older lungs. Still though, under that temperature and its by far the best vaporizer I’ve owned.

Awesome flavor so far. Love the sleek screen and design. I wish there was a bong adapter for it.

Very portable and sleek. It’s mainly conduction and easy to clean, but the taste dissipates from your cannabis quite quickly. The key for big clouds to to fully exhale and then slowly inhale. I also wish there were more accessories. Overall happy, though.

I like it, I just wish there was a bong adapter mouthpiece, it would work great through water, no sure why gpen isn’t making one
Well made and well packaged. Tried a session starting at 390 and 410 for the last couple draws. Vapor was medium to light but okay. When reloading I noticed the ABV was unusually light in color (like it hadn’t been used). I put this material in my Utillian and got some good clouds of vaper. Not good.
I’m just getting started with the E II and I’m hopeful of getting better results in the future. It really needs to improve its efficiency to see much more use.
Update to and lowering the score of my prior review. I reloaded the E II and tried another session. Okay vapor cloud at first. I started at 380 with the boost on (first draw), went to 390 (a few draws until the vapor dropped), and finished at 410 until the vapor stopped. Again the ABV looked light in color. Again, the ABV generated nice clouds of vapor with my other vaporizer. Since this was only my second test it was hardly worthy of another review…………..Until I looked at the battery gauge. The battery was down to 25% (confirmed by the larger charging graphic when I plugged it in). Only 2 uses?? And the total time jt was on was 60-70 minutes. Really not good.
I like g pen vaporizers. The E II is the 5th g pen dry herb vaporizer I’ve owned. Had high hopes for this one but what a let down (so far anyway).

Hey Joel, sorry you’re not liking it so far! We had a customer give us a good tip that poking a hole in the middle of your herb with the pick tool helps vapor production along with long and slow inhales. Hopefully we get can it working it your liking!

It’s easy to use and portable. Doesn’t hit the best out my lot, but it’s high quality and would be great for beginners that just need consistency. Flavor is good but quickly goes IMO.
