How to Use It

The Yocan iShred vaporizer works like most other portable vaporizers with the exception of its built-in grinder. Let’s take a look at how to use this vaporizer step-by-step.

Step 1. If you plan on using the built-in vaporizer, pull down on the bottom of the grinder and twist clockwise to separate the grinder parts from the bottom of the device. Place the herbs that you want to grind into the separated grinder pieces and then reattach the grinder parts to the bottom of the Yocan iShred by screwing the pieces back in. Once the pieces are reattached, you can begin grinding your herbs by pushing down on the grinder (or up against the device depending on how you look at it).

Step 2. Once you’ve ground your herbs, you are ready to pack the heating chamber, remove the grinder once again and place it to the side. Next, remove the mouthpiece at the top and load your ground herbs into the heating chamber. Be careful not to pack the chamber too much or to pack it too tightly or you may compromise your vaping experience. Place the mouthpiece back on once you’ve finished packing the heating chamber with your herbs.

Step 3. To begin using the Yocan iShred, turn the device on by pressing the on button five times quickly. The LED screen will flash on and you will be able to set your desired temperature by using the up and down buttons located on the front of the device. When you’ve found the temperature you want, hold down the on button for three seconds to begin heating your device. At the highest temperature, your device will take only about a minute to heat up.

Step 4. That’s it! You can now begin vaping. Once you are finished with your session, you can either wait for the power off feature to kick in or manually turn off your device by pressing the on button five times again.

Additional Usage Information: If you want to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius, all you have to do is press the on button and the up arrow button at the same time. If you want to switch between the left-handed display and right-handed display, all you have to do is press the on button and the down arrow button at the same time.

Pros:

  • Uses a built-in grinder, which is a feature that is hard to find in any other vaporizer currently on the market. In addition to the grinder, it is also convenient that it comes with a separate catching and storage piece so that you don’t lose any herb that is ground too finely.
  • Has an LED screen, which is a feature that is also not commonly found on portable vaporizers of this size.
  • Has precision temperature control that allows you to have full control over the quality and taste of your vapor.
  • Creates a diffused airway using two separate air entrances on the vape, allowing for a better vaping experience.
  • The vaporizer is extremely small, which makes for discreet and easy vaping sessions.

Cons:

  • The manufacturing quality of the Yocan iShred leaves a lot to be desired. Although there are quite a few desirable features on the iShred that are missing from most small portable vaporizers, it doesn’t help the fact that the plastic. However, no one has complained about tasting plastic or anything wrong about the exterior shell.
  • Another small issue with the Yocan iShred is the grinder. Yes, the grinder is a helpful addition to this vaporizer but it is poorly built and does not have enough room or the ability to grind herbs the way you need to. It takes a lot of effort to use the grinder. Most people say that users would be better off purchasing a separate grinder rather than trying to use the one attached to the iShred.
  • Some of the other problems that most vape users encounter are issues with the battery life and the vapor quality. The battery only lasts for about an hour and is not built for long vape sessions or sharing. This is a huge issue since the battery is not removable also.
