There are some outstanding vaping devices out there for comsuming crumble and wax. But, they all have one thing in common -
- No Data Sheet
- No Instructions
- No User Manual

Here, I attempt to provide this required owner information for the Yocan Evolve Plus.

0.8 Ohm dual-coil cup
These SUCK.
They leak like a sieve, and foul the battery and battery connection.
I'm done with them.

NOTES:

* - Pure
Pure, of course, has no meaning, since it is undefined. Which makes it a rather silly specification. "Pure metal" could mean pure cadmium, pure arsenic, pure lead, pure mercury, etc.

** - Coil Type
While cleaning, I noticed that 151 proof ethanol ran right out of the QDC cup, and the ethanol STAYED PUT in the CDC Ceramic cup. Which would indicate that the concentrate content of the CDC is less likely to run down through the "Base" during use, and foul the top of the battery.

NOTES:
There is no Yocan print catalog.
China does not use external part numbers.
There is no "version" control".
This makes it more difficult when ordering.
The same "tech device" can come in different versions.
   --- Different options, different functionalities
Having part numbers for the coils would be very helpful.

  4. INSTRUCTIONS (Mine)
         How to Take A Hit

Step
#
Operation

1.

Loading
Unscrew the Mouthpiece from the top of the pen.

-

2.

Unscrew the Coil Cap from the top of the pen.

3.

Keeping the pen upright, carefully place your material (crumble, shatter or wax) into the coil cup. Use a tamping tool (pencil eraser?) to gently push the material down into the cup.

Start with an amount equal to about 2 cooked grains of rice. With experience, you will then be able to adjust the amount (hit numbers/ size per load).
.

4.

Screw the Coil Cap back onto the top loosely.

5.

Screw the Mouthpiece back onto the top loosely.

6.

Hitting
There is a REASON for NO INSTRUCTIONS from Yocan. It SEEMS that different versions of the SAME VAPE PEN work differently.

6A.

TAKE A HIT (instructions A - found online) -
Push the Button near the middle of the pen 5 TIMES to "turn the power on". Then, slowly begin inhaling the smoke, while holding down the button on your sixth push.

When you have had your hit, release the button, while continuing to inhale, and holding the pen vertically.
- If you are done with the current session, push the Button 5 more times to turn the pipe off.


The pen has an automatic coil shut-off, at 15 seconds, to prevent over-heating.
.

6B.

TAKE A HIT (B- MY instructions) -
(The 5 "priming clicks" are not required.)
Just push the Button near the middle of the pen to begin the heating process. Try to keep the pen vertical at all times.

STEPS
Press the button for about 4 seconds.
Release for 4 seconds.
Press again for about 4 seconds (warms coil).
Release for 4 seconds (heat conduction).
Press the button again, and after about 4 seconds, slowly begin inhaling the smoke for ~5 seconds, while continuing to hold down the button.

When you have had your hit (~ 5 seconds), release the button, while continuing to
- inhale, thus cooling the oil to make it less runny ,
- hold the pen vertically. This prevents the now liquid oil from running out of the hole into the top of the Coil Cap.
END OF STEPS

Modify these steps to suit yourself.
Experimentation is required.

THE CLOUD SIZE (for time of inhale)
- is determined by various factors
1. How clean the pen is
2. How excellent your wax is
3. How hard you inhale (try medium)
4. How long you inhale (try 5 seconds)
The pen has an automatic coil shutoff, at 15 seconds, to prevent overheating.
.

7.

Charging
Plug the micro USB plug into the bottom of the battery, just below the "Yocan" logo. Plug the large USB plug into your computer that supports USB 2 or USB 3.
A small red LED will light immediately, and stay on while charging.

When the charging is complete, the LED light will turn off. This took about 2 hours in my case. It can take 3.

While charging, if you press the power Button, the Power Button Light will blink on-and-off 3 times.

Over-charging Bullspit
Other instructions found online insist that you unplug the charger as soon as the LED light goes out. Otherwise, you will "overcharge" the battery.

IF this is true, then the charging circuit design is HIGHLY FLAWED. I suggest that it is NOT TRUE, since it would be a FAULTY PRODUCT if true, and should not be sold. NO COMPANY should impose a "MUST UNPLUG" requirement, because people will NOT ALWAYS do it.

Is there an ACTUAL ISSUE? Tell me about it.
.

8.

Cleaning
Disassemble the pen.
BEWARE - When grasping the barrel to untwist it, do NOT inadvertently press the VAPE button, which is right where you would naturally grasp it. BURN danger. Or at least, a surprise danger.

Remove the Coil Cap and the Quartz Dual-Coil chamber.

Soak them in -
- ethanol (Everclear 151 proof) or
- isopropyl alcohol (99%, not 70%).
Allow to soak until all the residue is dissolved, and blow dry. Burn any remaining residue off by pulsing the power button.
.

Alternative - Boil some water in a small container, and insert the Cap and Chamber for a few minutes. Allow to dissolve residue. Blow dry. Burn any remaining residue off by pulsing the power button, 4 seconds at a time.

INSTRUCTIONS (Yocan)
"How To Fully Use
Yocan Evolve Plus"

"The Yocan Evolve Plus has 5 quick clicks to lock and unlock the unit. There is an additional feature that most people don't know about. When you do your 5 quick clicks to turn off the unit, you'll get triple flash to confirm. Take your hit, let go of the button, and the flash will appear back on for a couple of seconds.

This is to be sure your airway is clear of any built-up product and allows it to re-solidfy your concentrate. DO IT! It keeps the airway unclogged. And also ensures the most use out of your concentrate/"
(I find the above text to be utter BS. MINE sure doesn't work that way).
.

"Tips of Fully Use
Yocan Evolve Plus"
from:

©
www.yocanonline.com
(by a native English speaker)

-

1.

DO NOT OVERLOAD - The Evolve Plus has its own silicon container attached. So, there's no need to try and pack it full. Add a dab about the size of 2 grains of rice, no larger.
.

2.

DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THREADS - It will just make your life more difficult. Once you've over-tightened the thread, and let it clog with oil, you'll likely have to warm it up, and try again. If that doesn't work, you may possibly have to use pliers, so DON'T DO IT.

The perfect setting will be with the base tightened to the battery snug, but not over-tightened.
.

3.

ON to the Coil Cap.
AGAIN, DON'T OVER-TIGHTEN IT! -
It doesn't need to be super tight - just a couple of turns, and it stays on fine. The other design feature with the Cap, is that when you inhale on the mouthpiece, the airflow continually clears the Coil Cap. If your oil heats, and you blast air through it, its going to splatter.
Draw gently, to get thick appetizing clouds, and keep your pen clean.
.

4.

After a 5-10 seconds hit, release the button and keep slowly drawing in until the "all-clear light" has appeared back on and turned off again.

? = Which all-clear light is that?
      Location? Color? Behavior?

.

5.

Cleaning - the cleaner you keep your pen, you'll get more flavorful and enjoyable clouds. Don't scratch up your ceramic, a gentle brushing if you absolutely have to. Use alcohol or warm water to clean it, and allow a unit to dry completely before next use.
.

Amazon does NOT sell the Yocan directly, but they DO have "Sponsored Links" that do.

NOTES:
BE CAREFUL on eBay - deception abounds.
1. MOST coils come without caps.
     Many coil sellers use the word "ADD Caps" in the title,
     which is intended to deceive - people read it as
     "AND CAPS" - WRONG - They are saying that
     you must ALSO ORDER CAPS separately!

2. "Clones" are sold as "Authentic"
     Clones illegally use the Yocan logo -
         Or they use stolen photos.
         Buy one to find out!

3. Avoid buying from China for ONE reason -
      Delivery can take OVER a MONTH!

Yocan Issues

The fact that there is ZERO Documentation of any kind is the BIGGEST ISSUE of all.
Product quality is high, but the language barrier restricts high-quality English translations from the company - a frequent issue with Chinese and Japanese companies.
