After 8 years of making great dry herb vaporizers, the Canadian company, Utillian has just released their latest model with the Utillian 5, which features a glass bubbler attachment.
An affordable option for raw concentrates couldn’t have come soon enough. Over the past year, more and more users have started experimenting with various new cannabis products that they wouldn’t have had if they hadn’t been sitting at home all day. At the top of the list of these cool things is a boutique hash, which is of a different level than anything else in a cartridge.
With the new Utillian wax pen, you have a product that stands out from the biggest discounts and yet is very affordable. Here you will find everything you need to know about Utillian 5.
What is the Utillian 5?
The Utillian 5 features a tough stainless-steel exterior that is built to withstand the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Though it is a high quality stainless steel pen, it is priced as a mid-range wax pen. Engineered to be simple to use, the one button design removes the hassle providing a user-friendly experience each and every time. It’s actually a much improved version of the Utillian 2 with a lot more accessories for twice the price, but the package still only costs $69.99. So if you can’t afford some of the more popular electronic dab rigs currently available, the Utillian 5 is a great option for you.
The Utillian 5 allows for more powerful hits on it’s coil than in the competitors’ ceramic chambers. What you may lose in taste or flavor, you make up for in volume. It’s definitely a little smoother with the bubble attachment, but you still get the same high quality taste from the coil. The build quality and design for the Utillian 5 wax pen is extremely sturdy and solid. The 1050 maH battery is also very easy to use with a simple and clean one-button design. The USB charging port is located on the side of the battery, which is very convenient. That allows you to stand the battery up with a cart in it and still charge it.
The battery on the Uttilian 5 has an extremely long-lasting life with a single charge. The battery unit can be turned on and off by pressing the power button five times. The four main voltage settings are toggled by pressing the power button twice. Another big plus is that the battery also works with most 510 threaded cartridges, even with ceramic coil cartridges. This feature is especially useful if you are not able to travel with concentrates in your luggage.
How does Utillian 5 work?
After the first charge, your Utillian 5 will be ready for use in no time. Just plug in the included micro USB and wait until the bar is full and stops flashing. The battery indicator lights up continuously when the battery is fully charged.
Before using a vaporizer for the first time, it’s always a good idea to wipe down the parts of the atomizer and mouthpiece with a few drops of isopropyl alcohol. Then burn it several times following the instructions below.
Once you’ve prepared your device for the first digital dabs, the party won’t last long.
Remove the mouthpiece and cuspidor to expose the atomizer coil, and put a small amount of BHO or resin on the coil. Utilian recommends a piece of concentrate about the size of a grain of rice, but our research has shown that it can be a little meatier, especially if you’re using a triple titanium coil. Despite its name, the Jumbo Kanthal reel is actually meant for one-off sessions.
Press the power button five times to activate the device.
Press the button twice to set the Utillian 5 to one of the four voltage options: Lower voltages give more flavor, while higher settings give more sparkle.
Once you have selected the desired voltage, press and hold the button to begin heating the concentrate. When you see the LEDs start to turn white, you can take the shot. It stops heating automatically after ten seconds. You can adjust the airflow ring under the atomizer to find the right draw for you.
The Utillian 5 has four preset voltages levels. To get better flavor and to try to conserve your wax, use one of the lower voltage settings. For stronger potency and bigger clouds, use one of the higher voltage settings.

The Utillian 5 wax pen comes with two different coils, one dual twisted Kenthal black ceramic coil, and one triple titanium black ceramic coil. The black ceramic coils promote better wicking with their porous nature offering better efficiency and less waste. They are both very easy to clean, maintain and switch between the two coils.
How to clean the Utillian 5
The maintenance is easy for the Utillian 5 wax pen, which makes it very easy to clean, assemble, and disassemble. Because the ceramic mouthpiece dab tool will slowly drip your concentrate or wax onto the coils, there will be much less risk of your concentrate getting burnt or falling beneath the coils. Since the coils are very large, it will also help with your wax pen’s maintenance. All you’ll have to do is give them an isopropyl alcohol soak followed by a hot water rinse. Once its dry, you’ll be able to pop it back into the pen and continue making clouds. For the mouthpiece, vape cleaning wipes can also help get rid of any resin build-up on the dab tool, and the alcohol also kills any bacteria on the ceramic mouthpiece.
You can also just clean the coils with alcohol using a cotton swab or Q-tip. The black ceramic rods do a fantastic job of absorbing the concentrate and there’s virtually none wasted if you load the coil carefully. Make sure not to overload the coils or things could get a little messy. After a thorough cleaning make sure you burn the coil a few times without any concentrate in the pen. The core will absorb the alcohol, and when this happens, it may take a little time to get it out. Heating the coils also helps to disinfects the battery and removes any residue from the battery itself. If you clean the coil and oven regularly after every couple of sessions you can really extend the lifespan of your coil.
The Final Conclusion?
What you get with the Utillian 5 is a legit one-piece wax pen with some a few extra features like a large battery that extends your battery life and multiple coil options. You will be able to smoke most high-end concentrates on the market. It is far easier to clean and much less messy than most wax pens. The atomizers can hold up to 0.3 grams of concentrates, which is slightly more than most wax pens.
