    Yocan was nice enough to send me 2 Handy's in the mail to test out. I received them yesterday and quickly charged it up via the usb & put a really nice Ccell cart in it I got from the dispensary. The airflow is perfect unlike some other magnetic devices I have tried that have hindered airflow a bit for me when putting the magnetic piece on the cartridge itself. The temperature selection is spot on and very flavorful at the lowest temp. The clouds have been huge at all temps . Its easily pocket-able , oil level window at the side is nice touch. Like most Pens 5 clicks to turn it on/off , 3 to change temp and 2 quick clicks to preheat your oil if it is thick and needs some help flowing. I will say so far it has been really nice and my only small complaint is the power button is a little finicky in that if lightly pressed it may not fire and if attention is not paid to it you may select a different temp on accident while hitting it. It would be nice if it was changed to some form of rubber for the power button and just made a bit tighter. Besides that small thing its a cool pen that will get some use & I am happy about everything else. Thank you @Yocantech for sending me this. I will try and post some pics if anyone is interested. Oh and I forgot to add , this should fit mostly any cart size as I put a few different 1's I had in it and no fitment issues at all.

    Yocan also sent me one. I just started using it, but really like it so far. It’s a tiny little thing, and stealthy as hell!

    I also received some to review, got them yesterday and here's my first impressions.

    First of all, with half gram carts loaded they're seriously small, two fit in my hand easily - and I'm definitely not Shaq.

    The fire button is a little clinky, something rubberized may have been a little nicer but very minor; everything functions fine and I haven't gotten any sticking or anything to detract from the performance.

    The power settings are 2.7v (white) 3.5v (blue) and 4.0v (green)

    For my usage style (terps) the 4.0v setting is probably higher than I would need, maybe an extra one between white and blue would have been cool, I'll probably stay on white for most of my favorite carts. Flavor on this Raw Garden and Cresco is noticeably better on white, especially the Cresco which is liquid live resin and a bit thicker than Raw Garden distillate, and doesn't vaporize as quickly; so it works better with lower temps.

    Haven't tried the preheat setting, I'm in SoCal so I probably won't be using this feature.

    Included micro USB cord is short, but I'm sure we all have a longer one laying around. I like to use the flat one that Pax includes with the Era.

    Classic button layout: 5 clicks on/off, 3 clicks to change power, 2 clicks for preheat.

    Has a viewing window to see how much gas is left in the tank, kinda cool, although the magnetic attachment allows the cart to be removed easily enough to check anyways.

    I gotta knock it for only coming with one magnetic adapter - plenty of stoners probably lose this, and plenty buy more than one cart - I'm sure this works to YoCan's advantage, and I get it, but it would have been nice to see a spare.

    Battery is 500 mAh, haven't charged it, ripping right out of the box so I'll have to update on that later.

    It weighs 29 grams, empty.

    Overall I see this as YoCans take on the Ccell Palm, but with more control. Still haven't charged yet, brought it on the dog walk this morning, that liquid live resin sure can slap!

    I've got this now as well, quick test I did notice the button was annoying to click, since it was too clicky and needed to be clicked close together so trying to do preheat is tedious unfortunately. I like to use preheat as a super low temp hit where I don't have to hold down the button (like a cruise), so it being 10sec is nice at least.

    This compares mostly to the v-mod I have, which is larger with 900mah battery and looks like an iPod with circle button. I like how the Handy is even smaller, though battery life will be lower of course. My V-Mod does 15sec preheat and also starts at 2.6v. This charges very quick though!

    I only ever really use the lowest setting on these carts, use many different brands. Right now I've got a couple half Liquid Moxie carts and California Dab Company (one half one whole) plus a raw garden near empty and a potters half. The 1g size does poke out quite a bit, but not too bad, of course with a half gram it is super stealth.

    I'll post some pics comparing my various cartridge batteries to the handy later

    I’ve been using it for a little while, and really like it. It’s really small and stealthy. It can fit most 510 threaded atomizers that I have access to, but it is not adjustable like my UNI. That is the only thing I dislike about this MOD.

    It has a 5 click to turn on and off function, two clicks for a pre-heat, and 3 clicks to change the temperature. It has three different temps (2.7v (white) 3.5v (blue) and 4.0v (green), but I always keep mine on the lowest setting. Big clouds are not what I am shooting for, but this will still deliver big clouds on the highest setting, if that’s what you want.

    The battery lasts me a few days, but a heavy user might have to charge it more often. It’s a 500 mAh battery. Also, Yocan does NOT include an atomizer with this unit, so keep that in mind.

    I’ve been able to use this everywhere without being noticed. I can completely hide it in the palm of my hand. I used it in a restaurant, while grocery shopping, and at the mall. No one ever saw me. I like this a little better than the UNI because I can hide it completely and medicate wherever and whenever I need to.

    Yes super stealth, used mine in a movie theater (which I can do with any cart batt, but this was probably the most comfortable one yet). I have gotten more used to the button press, though I still think it could require a bit less force to push, it is not too bad. The preheat is perfect for small low temp hits and I like the led colors. Still need to post photos

    Might need to pick one of these up soon. Love the Palm and its size, but hate the fact there's no button to force clear clogs, and no adjustable voltage.

    I honestly don't like the magnetic collars, I had the Palm pull apart 3 different carts from different manufacturers. Kinda pissy when it ruins a new cart!

    I’m taking it to the theatre soon to see Godzilla, King of the Monsters. I’ll probably still sit in the back though, just in case.

    Oh I've never had a cart come apart on me, my V-Mod uses magnet too, just sometimes it screws loose is all. Seems that can happen with the handy too, but the magnet is more robust for sure. I also thought the Palm looked nice, but not button one temp made me write it off.

    Noice, I had a pen for that lol had the Handy for Dark Phoenix. Super easy as long as you have a sleeve to cover the led light and exhale slow with small low temp hits. I was using preheat

    I haven't found a reason to use anything over the lowest power setting, I actually think it might be a little high for really thick stuff like this liquid live resin. If anything was to be changed, I think a lower power setting could be nice; I'd drop the 4.0v and maybe do something like 2.5v, 3.0v, and 3.5v.

    Overall really digging the Handy, I just pulse the button for the really thick stuff, distillate like Raw Garden stuff seems to handle button smashing better.

    For me personally, the oil viewing window isn't really necessary.
    The viewing window is a small slit, and not much light gets in, so for me personally it's easier to just remove the cartridge to check the oil level - no big deal since it's on the magnet.

    Yeah, I agree with the low setting being all I need. I also like the lower temps on my Pax Era, so maybe it's just personal preference?:shrug:

    Been using a Handy for a few days, since I ruined my Uni charging it in a car.

    Never charge these things in a car.

    I like this Handy better than the Uni, it has a more robust magnet.
    I also like the shape and placement of the button.

    Only cart I've found that didn't fit is an Alpine.

    Just wanted to show the difference between a .5 and a 1mL cart in the Handy - not much!

    Well that does depend on the cart, still need to show mine, more noticeable with CDC full gram vs half grams at least.

    Had my half of Tangie in pocket accidentally unlocked, so it was left on, got really warm, seems okay though... I hope? Hard to tell looking at it, haven't used it much since, seemed to work fine.

    Got Handy today. No issues with button yet. Like how half gram cart sits low, and it's pretty light in pocket. Nice! If they would only add auto inhale sensor in addition to button...

    Again I have to highly recommend using the preheat as a low temp hit without having to hold the button down (10sec), super smooth and very effective :tup:

    Got a Handy too but I wasn't able to test it since my only cart to fit was the Trinity tank but, sadly, my cart wasn't working anymore. Although I received yesterday 2 Ccell's half gram carts I loaded with some trim bho thinned with some drops of terps. For now this is seems to work perfectly, I'm using lower setting and tested the @Shit Snacks trick with ultra low temp cruise hit too. I agree higher setting is useless for me.

    Nice Yocan product, cheap and effective like usual.

    The Handy landed with an extra surprise, an even smaller Rega.

    Don't have much time to fiddle with them now, just put a charge on em and threw them back in their boxes... excited to bust these out tomorrow when I land in Denver!

    So what is the deal with preheating a cart? Never had to do this before, isn't it kinda wasteful to fire the atomizer for 10s without taking a draw?

    Draw during low voltage preheat, like 10 second tasty cruise
