Desktop log vaporizers are known for their elegant style and efficiency. The EpicVape E-Nano log style vape sets the bar high with effective microdosing, mouthwatering flavor, and eye-catching appeal. If you're in the market for a new home vaporizer, this one is worth a look. Let’s dive in.
EpicVape E-Nano Review: Decadent vapor
The E-Nano log vaporizer doesn’t look like much of a competitor at first glance, but it provides one of the most well-rounded hits you can find from a vaporizer. Each hit brushes your lips with a subtle warmth and terpene-rich character that will surprise with rich flavor and thick clouds. The vapor is flavorful and potent, but the higher temps will feel toasty on the back of your throat. The pure, all-glass vapor path delivers a truly satisfying hit each time.
Beautiful, solid construction
Vaporizers that can spice up any decor don’t come around too often. Vapes that are endearing and perform well are even harder to find, but the E-Nano qualifies. The handmade, hardwood finish combines natural beauty and durability with simplistic functionality. The medical grade stainless steel heat exchanger sits as a single piece, providing a rock solid foundation for vaporizing. With no moving internal parts to break, the E-Nano is ready for years of service.
The power cable is a tad big for the E-Nano’s petite figure, and is really our only complaint with the build. It can send your vape flying if you bump the cable too hard or trip over it. The E-Nano’s short stature is begging for a smaller cable connection, but it’s hard to complain with how well this little vape stacks up. Despite its size, there isn’t a more user friendly power controller for any log vaporizer we’ve run across.
Heats up in a few minutes
The E-Nano log vaporizer goes from cold to ready-to-vape in about two to three minutes, but the longer it heats up, the better. Five to 10 minutes of heating should do the trick, or you can turn the dial all the way up for a few minutes, and dial it back down to your desired temp. All day users can avoid the wait and set the E-Nano on three or four as a standby mode, then bump it up to six or seven when it’s time to vape.
Variable bowl size
Each E-Nano has a glass stem with a sliding metal screen that allows you to adjust the load size to whatever you want. The included multitool has two different settings to easily adjust for small and large doses. Adjust the temperature and your draw speed accordingly and find the combination that works best for you. We got rich, satisfying hits from loads as small as 0.015 grams (not a typo!), to as large as 0.25 grams.
Great with concentrates
The E-Nano does an exceptional job with concentrates. It doesn’t come with a concentrate insert, but a mesh insert like the POTV ONE Concentrate Pad fits the glass stems perfectly. Replace the basket screen in the stem with the concentrate pad, place a rice-grain size amount of material onto the pad, and have at it. The E-Nano’s efficiency had us vaping a whole load with just one long hit!
Hotter temperatures, such as 8 - 10 on the dial, yielded the best results, but the vapor can get too hot to use with the straight glass stem. If you also find it hot with concentrates, we recommend grabbing the E-Nano Adjustable GonG Stem, and using it with a bubbler.
Adjustable temperature dial
The E-Nano boasts a broad temperature spectrum, all the way up to 560° F (293° C), to cover all of your needs. Each setting has a purpose. For example, settings 3 to 4 can be used for diffusing oils with the E-Nano Aromatherapy Cup, 5 to 7 for typical dry herb vaping, and 8 and above for concentrates. The dial has an 11 on it, but don’t get too excited, as it only turns to 10. Regardless, the function and flexibility make it a great, versatile vaporizer.
King of microdosing
Log vaporizers (small desktop vapes made from a block of wood) are known among enthusiasts for being ultra efficient, and the E-Nano is a shining example. Its full ac power and narrow bowl can fully extract loads as small as 0.015 grams with a satisfying hit that’ll leave you questioning the need for bigger bowls. Use the included multitool and adjust the screen to the first little notch for smaller doses. You’ll want to make sure the herbs are covering the bottom of the screen, and aren’t touching the heater for the best hits.
EpicVape includes everything you need to get started with dry herb vaping, but we recommend three accessories to round out the package. As mentioned before, the E-Nano Adjustable GonG Stem is a must-have for concentrates, but it’s also become my go-to piece for dry herb vaping as well. The added glass and water filtration cools the vapor perfectly on both the higher and lower temps for sweet, monster hits. I highly recommend grabbing one for both dry herbs and concentrate usage. Make sure you grab the right size for your glass, either 14mm or 18mm.
If you want to vaporize concentrates, the mesh pad for the ONE is a perfect fit. We also recommend any type of small brush that comes with so many other vaporizers. I like the brush that comes with Storz & Bickel vapes because the butt end of it is a perfect fit to tamp down the E-Nano bowls.
A few (minor) downsides
It’s hard to come up with things to dislike about the E-Nano. The air flow, however, is typical of a log vape, and feels like sucking on a thick milkshake. The biggest hits require a long, slow draw that won’t appeal to everyone. As mentioned before, a smaller power cable would be the icing on the cake. It’s a little too thick for its small size, but by no means a deal breaker. The temperature dial is also a bit slippery. A small bump can knock it up or down a few notches if you’re not paying attention.
EpicVape offers its users a three year warranty on the unit and a lifetime warranty on the ceramic heater(glass not included). As with all vaporizers purchased from Planet of the Vapes, you are also covered by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

For best results
Our Tips and Tricks article is just around the corner, but in the meantime, here are a few pointers to get you rolling with your E-Nano. With every bowl pack, make sure to give it a soft tamp to push the herbs down away from the heater. You don’t want them to touch and potentially char your herbs. Don’t tamp it down too much, though, or you’ll tighten up the airflow.
For the big hitters, pair a larger load with a strong pull to get the thickest hits. For the small tokers, choose a smaller load and take slow gentle hits for relaxing, but effective vapor. Play around with different load sizes, temperatures, and draw speeds to find the ideal combo for you.
We’ll release our Cleaning and Maintenance guide soon, but in the meantime, be sure to brush out the glass stem after each session. The longer it sits, the messier it gets. For the heater, a quick brush of the screen is all you’ll need in the long run. Deep cleanings require nothing more than soaking the glass stems.
Who is the E-Nano for?
The EpicVape E-Nano will do well in anyone’s lineup, but is especially valuable for smaller hits, or microdosing, without sacrificing quality. It performs well with any size bowl, but its level of efficiency with tiny loads outperforms every vape in its category. The E-Nano pairs function and style beautifully, and would make a great addition to any vaporist’s collection.
Who is the E-Nano not for?
If you need to consume mass amounts of material in as little time as possible, this isn’t for you. It’ll take time going through a whole stash as you repack the stem over and over, so it likely won’t keep up with the heaviest of hitters. And of course, if you need something portable to take on the go, look elsewhere.
Log vapes have been around since the early days of vaporizing, captivating users with amazing efficiency and taste in endearing little packages. Most manufacturers are smaller shops with limited supply, and are usually only found by enthusiasts. The E-Nano, however, packs up all their best qualities, and brings them to the mass market. We’re stoked to bring you this little-known gem! If you get one, chances are you’ll fall hard for it, and use it all the time.
