Before I get into the G5, it is worth mentioning that Airistech has a bunch of popular dab pens. First and foremost the Headbanger, the Quaser, and the Q-Tip. After reviewing those vapes, we were excited to test the G5 out.
The Design of the Gethi G5 Dab Pen
The Gethi G5 is powered by a 650 mAh battery. The battery attaches to the quartz atomizer with a 510 thread. As a result, you can use the battery with most 510 threaded oil cartridges. You basically get double use out of your vaporizer this way.
The quartz atomizer works with a ceramic dab mouthpiece. In other words, the mouthpiece of the vape has a built-in ceramic dabbing tool.
You apply your concentrate to this mini dabbing tool and put your mouthpiece on. As you fire the atomizer, your dab will melt onto the quartz and provide you with your hit.
The design of the Gethi G5 is very modular. You can screw off the 510 threaded battery, as well as the coil adapter, the QCell quartz coil, the see-through tube, and of course the mouthpiece.
What’s in the Box?
In the slide-out box, you’ll find the below items.
A Gethi G5 Battery, a QCell Atomizer, a micro USB charging cable, and a user manual.
How to Use the Gethi G5 Dab Pen
Using the G5 is as easy as it gets. We recommend putting it on the supplied micro USB charger for a couple of hours before you use it for the first time. This is in order to condition the battery for optimal performance.
Once that’s done, you are ready to use your dab pen.
As a first step, take the mouthpiece off and put a little concentrate on the ceramic dabbing tool. You don’t need a whole lot, about the size of a small rice grain or less.
Next, put the mouthpiece back onto the vape. The ceramic dabbing tool sits just above the quartz coil. Some of your dabs may touch the coil or may not, don’t worry too much about it.
Press the power button 5 times in a quick sequence to turn the vaporizer on.
Once your vape is turned on, you are ready to set the voltage. The G5 offers 3 variable voltage options. You can move between these 3 settings by pressing the power button three times in a row.
The LED light above the power button indicates what voltage you are on. A green light indicates 3.4V, blue is for 3.7V, and red is for 4.2 Volts. The ticker your concentrate is, the higher voltage you may need to dab it.
Also, higher voltage gives you larger clouds. Might be a bit harsher taste, but definitely bigger clouds, if that is what you are after.
Once you set your voltage, you are ready to go. Press the power button, while inhaling through the mouthpiece.
The cannabis concentrate from the dabbing tool melts over the QCell quartz atomizer. You can observe this process through the see-through tube as you vape.
The Gethi G5 is an affordable dap pen, that offers great value. The 650 mAh battery, combined with the QCell quartz atomizer does a good job at dabbing concentrates. Taste is quite good and using the pen is a good experience overall.
Also, you can use the battery with most 510 oil carts, so you literally get two vaporizers in one.
