The KandyPens K-Vape Micro-DX is one of the only truly portable vaporizers that offers True Convection Technology. With a digital display, precise temperature control and a 3-4 hour battery life, the Micro DX may just be the best vaporizer under $200.

The Micro DX is everything that you want in a desktop vaporizer, but in a completely portable unit. Sure, there are other high-end portable vaporizers out there that use convection heating and have similar features, but most are expensive and some are quite large. The Micro DX is compact and affordable – just under $200. And it’s small enough to fit in your back pocket, although still larger than some units out there.
Is the Micro DX the best dry herb vaporizer?
We think so, but to prove our point, let’s take a look at how this unit works.
How the K-Vape Micro DX Works
At first glance, this vaporizer doesn’t look like anything special. With a matte black finish, its appearance is nothing to write home about. But once you turn on the OLED display, everything changes.
Like other portable models, the Micro DX turns on after pressing the power button five times in a row.
Immediately, the OLED display will illuminate with your last set temperature as well as the remaining battery life. The digital display is a unique feature that most other portable models don’t include, especially in the mid-price range.
Heat-up time is lightning fast – 30 seconds or less. And if you want to adjust the temperature, all you have to do is press the “+” or “-“ buttons located just below the power button. The Micro DX offers an incredible temperature range of 350° and 430° (that’s over 80 different settings), so you’ll be able to choose a temperature that works best for you.
The higher the temp, the denser the clouds will be. But even at cooler temperatures, this unit outperforms the competition.
For a moment, you might feel as if you’re smoking.
Even when you have the unit set on a low temperature, the clouds are thick and you maximize your session by getting the most out of your herb. The best part is that you can adjust the temperature accordingly, so you can experiment and find the right temperature for your own unique tastes.
The Micro DX also comes with a huge filling chamber – 0.5g. That is one of the biggest chambers on the market – even compared to some of the top-selling portable vaporizers out there.
Built with True Convection Technology, your herbs will never burn or combust during use – that’s a difficult feat for any portable vaporizer. At the end of the session, you’re left with golden brown herbs that were evenly heated.
Kandy Pens includes all of the accessories you need to start vaping right out of the box, including: USB-to-micro USB charging cable, cleaning brush, and a packing tool. All you need is some herb, and you’re good to go.
One thing we do have to point out is that this unit is not compatible with liquids or waxes. You’ll only be able to use the Micro DX with dry herbs, and as far as we can tell, there are no accessories available that would allow use for liquids or waxes.
KandyPens K-Vape Micro-DX vs Pax 2
In the portable vaporizer debate, the Pax 2 usually wins. But the Micro DX absolutely gives the Pax 2 a run for its money.
Both vaporizers offer a similar performance, but the Pax 2’s oven is smaller than the Micro DX’s – 0.3g vs. 0.5g.
The Micro DX also offers a digital display that lets you know how much battery you have left and the current temperature. Pax 2 doesn’t offer this. In fact, there are no precise temperature controls with the Pax 2, which puts it behind the Micro DX in terms of customization.
If you’re looking for a vaporizer that gives you control over the heating temperature, the Micro DX is exactly what you need.
The only thing the Pax 2 has going for it is a unique modern design and its “social” mode. Aside from these two things, the Micro DX is the clear winner. Is it worth paying nearly $100 more just for a sleek design and a “Party Mode”? Probably not.
While the Micro DX beats out the Pax 2 in terms of capacity, price and customization, it’s not a perfect device. Let’s review the things we liked and didn’t like about this unit.
- Easy to use
- Precise digital temperature controls with a huge range
- Huge filling chamber
- Convection heating prevents the combustion of herbs
- The device remembers your last temp setting, so you can start vaping quickly
- Not compatible with waxes or liquids
It would have been nice for Kandy Pens to make this unit compatible with oils or waxes, but it’s hard to complain at this price point. For under $200, you can’t beat the performance of this vaporizer.
The Micro DX is one of Kandy Pen’s best portable vaporizers, and it beats most of the competition when it comes to customization, price and oven capacity.
With True Convection Heating, your herbs won’t combust, and you have the option of choosing between 80 different temperature settings for a truly personalized vaping experience.
It doesn’t get much better than that – especially at this sub $200 price point.
