After expressing an interest in vape pens (having previously reviewed the MCig) before, I was excited when I obtained a Gentleman’s Brand Ambassador Kit V3. My kit came with the following items:
- Mega V2 Oil Cartridge
- Dry Herb Cartridge
- Espionage Pen Battery
- Double Agent Battery
- Concentrates Jar
- Instruction Manual
After charging both batteries for several hours, I attached the espionage pen to the dry herb cartridge and began to warm it up. After taking a few puffs, I soon began to see quit a bit of smoke and I became noticeably buzzed (keep in mind that the dry herb cartridge is designed to act as an “e-pipe” rather than vaporizer). The cart does its job well, but since it isn’t a vaporizer you still get the drawbacks of combustion.
On the other hand, the Mega V2 Oil Cartridge has a flat heating element, allowing concentrates to have maximum surface area during vaporization. Once I swapped out the dry herb cart for the oil cart, I placed a dab of concentrates onto the heating element and began to take hits. Using concentrates, the Gentleman’s Vape produced a good amount vapor and each dab tasted pretty good (make sure to stir the bowl occasionally). Furthermore, the oil jar came in handy for storing additional concentrates while I’m on the go. Cartridges should be replaced from time to time as the heating element’s performance degrades over time and replacements can be purchased on the Gentleman’s Brand website.
Both batteries are 510/eGO (e-cigarette) compatible and lasted quite a long time, but the Double Agent battery created larger amounts of vapor and had a longer battery life than the Espionage Pen (plus it has a USB passthrough as well). Moreover, the Double Agent has 3 temperature settings of low (3.2V), medium (3.7V), and high (4.2V) in order to best suit your vaping preferences (I mostly used 4.2V for oils). I haven’t had enough time to comment on the reliability of these batteries, but I haven’t run into any issues yet in the month I’ve had the kit. The Ambassador Kit does come with a 6 month warranty which creates some peace of mind should anything go wrong.
In summary, The Ambassador kit is great for concentrates, and offers good value for oil enthusiasts. The battery life of the Double Agent battery is great for all day use, plus the USB passthrough was handy for longer vaping sessions. If you vape cannabis concentrates exclusively, then I
recommend giving this kit a try!
