Our Verdict

Overall, the Hyer is a well-constructed, nicely designed, and solid device. The anodized finish scratches quite easily, but otherwise I have no complaints about the build quality. 

The battery itself is a bit bulky and heavy, and the tank housing is quite heavy too. Plus, you have to bring your glass water piece with you to use it outside of the house so there is some portability sacrificed with this device. However, the freedom to use your own water pieces is a big and unique feature of the Hyer, so at-home-use is really where it’s at with this e-nail.

The ability to use either concentrates or dry herb (by purchasing the tank which is sold separately) is a big pro for the Hyer. They both perform equally well, delivering excellent flavor, and effects with nice and clean vapor due to being ran through a water piece. 

I found the Hyer to be a bit complicated to operate at first, so new users may be daunted by the operation. However, the included user manual makes using the Hyer clear and new users should keep it handy for their first few sessions.

Overall, the Hyer has quickly become one of my favorite e-nails ever. If you like the idea of water cooling your concentrates (or dry herb) using your own water piece, I highly recommend picking up the Hyer.

G Pen is a company that needs no introduction. They’ve been in the vaporizer business for over ten years now and in that time, they’ve made some of the most popular and best performing dry herb and concentrate vapes available. G Pen consistently pushes the envelope with their products and it’s this relentless innovation that has earned the brand a high reputation among consumers. 

We recently reviewed their G Pen Elite II dry herb vape and we were impressed by its even heating, ease of use, and overall performance. Today, I’ll be reviewing one of their latest concentrate and dry herb vaporizers: the G Pen Hyer.

The G Pen Hyer is an e-nail that is designed to be used with your own glass-on-glass water piece. The Hyer consists of a battery/control box, a heating chamber, and a heavy-duty braided cable which connects the two pieces. The heating chamber and housing connect to your water bong like any other bowl would, allowing you to use your own water piece to vape concentrates. It’s an extremely unique product that is unlike any other e-nail on the market.

In this review I’m going to go over everything that you need to know about the G Pen Hyer so that you can decide if it’s an e-nail worth purchasing. Let’s dive right in!

Design & Build Quality

  • G Pen Hyer Vaporizer - 4

The G Pen Hyer is the most unique e-nail that I’ve ever used and this all comes down to the construction and unique setup of the device. Unlike other e-nails that are one complete standalone unit, the Hyer has to be paired up with your existing glass water piece in order to function. If you already own a glass water piece, then great. If not, you’ll need to purchase one to use with the Hyer.

The Hyer consists of two distinct pieces: the battery/control box, and the housing/tank. The battery is the brains of the device and it’s quite a hefty beast. It’s 90mm wide, 31mm tall, and 61mm thick and it weighs 201g. It’s this box that controls the temperature, session time, and everything else that the Hyer has to offer. It also houses a massive 6000mAh battery.

The battery/control box has a nice shape that is essentially a rectangle, but with cut corners. One corner has a larger cut than the others, and it’s on this corner that you’ll find the controls and LED indicators. There’s also a G Pen “G” logo that lights up and glows when the device is powered on. All of the buttons feel great, tactile, and responsive.

The anodized aluminum casing is finished in black and it’s sleek and discreet. My unit has picked up some scratches during the time that I’ve been using it, and I haven’t even taken it out of the house with me. You’ll want to be careful with the finish, so using the included travel case to store it away when not in use is probably a good idea.

On the side of the battery box you’ll find a Type-C charging port, as well as the connection point for the braided magnetic adapter that connects the battery to the tank. The cable is about 2.65 feet long, so there’s plenty of cable for slack. The cable is also very heavy duty and the braided style keeps it durable. The ends of the cable magnetically attach to the battery and the side of the tank housing, linking the two pieces together into one single unit.

You also get a nice, heavy-duty velcro strap to tidy any excess cable, which I thought was nice to have.

The tank housing is the other piece that completes the Hyer. This is essentially like a high-tech bowl that you insert into your water piece. The tank inside of the housing can be swapped out for a dry herb tank, which is sold separately, but out of the box you get a full-quartz concentrates tank with a stainless-steel heating element that is preinstalled in the tank housing.

The tank housing is made of the same anodized aluminum as the battery, so they match and pair well together. On the bottom of the tank housing is a 14mm male ground-glass adapter, which you insert into your water piece. This adapter is removable so if this adapter isn’t quite the right size for your water piece, there are 10mm and 18mm adapters sold separately.

The tank housing is a bit heavy itself, so you’ll want to make sure that you have a large and sturdy water piece. If not, the tank can make your water piece tip so you’ll want to be careful using it with light or smaller water pieces. 


Features

G Pen Hyer Vaporizer - 6

The Hyer is a high-end device, and as such, you get some features that you otherwise wouldn’t with other e-nails/concentrate vaporizers. For one, the Hyer can be used with either dry herb or concentrates. 

The dry herb tank is sold separately, but can be easily swapped into the tank housing for dry herb use. This turns the Hyer into a dry herb vape that you can easily use with your water piece; not something that many e-nails can do.

The G Pen Hyer has a total temperature range of 356-842℉ (180-450°C), however the actual temperature range will depend on which tank you are using; the dry herb tank or the concentrates tank. For the concentrate tank, you can choose between five settings from 482-842℉ (250-450°C). The LEDs on the Hyer will glow in one of five colors, with each color corresponding to a different temperature setting. These settings are:

Concentrates Tank Temperature Settings

  • Blue: 482℉ (250°C)
  • Turquoise: 572℉ (300°C)
  • Green: 662℉ (350°C)
  • Yellow: 752℉ (400°C)
  • Red: 842℉ (450°C)

For the dry herb tank, these settings are:

Dry Herb Tank Temperature Settings

  • Blue: 356℉ (180°C)
  • Turquoise: 374℉ (190°C)
  • Green: 392℉ (200°C)
  • Yellow: 410℉ (210°C)
  • Red: 428℉ (220°C)

To turn the device on or off, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds. The temperature can be changed by simply pressing the left and right adjustment buttons on the Hyer to cycle through the five settings.

You can also set your session timer on the Hyer by pressing and holding both adjustment buttons together for two seconds. When the 5 LED lights start flashing, use the adjustment buttons to change your session time. The sessions times are:

Concentrates Tank Session Times

  • 1 LED: 15s
  • 2 LEDs: 30s
  • 3 LEDs: 45s
  • 4 LEDs: 60s
  • 5 LEDs: 75s

For the dry herb tank, these settings are:

Dry Herb Tank Session Times

  • 1 LED: 3m
  • 2 LEDs: 3m30s
  • 3 LEDs: 4m
  • 4 LEDs: 4m30s
  • 5 LEDs: 5m

In my experience, the 6000mAh battery on the Hyer lasts around 30 sessions with concentrates and ~50 sessions with the dry herb tank. However, this will vary based on your session times and temperature used. One thing that will be consistent though is the charge time, which takes around 2 hours to go from dead to fully charged.

The 5 LEDs on the Hyer will display your battery life when the device is off. Simply press the power button once to indicate your battery life:

Hyer Battery Life

  • 1 LED: 0-20%
  • 2 LEDs: 20-40%
  • 3 LEDs: 40-60%
  • 4 LEDs: 60-80%
  • 5 LEDs: 80-100%

Last but not least, the Hyer also features sound notifications but you can turn this off if you don’t like it. Pressing the power button three times will turn sound notifications on or off.


How to use the G Pen Hyer

G Pen Hyer Vaporizer - 1

As you can see from the numerous features and functions that the Hyer has, using it is not exactly simple, at least not at first. Once you become familiar with the operation of the Hyer it becomes second-nature, but for the first few sessions you’re going to want to keep the included user manual close by.

The first step is connecting everything up. Take the battery box, the braided cable, and the tank. Connect the magnetic cable on one end to the battery box, and the other end to the tank.

As I mentioned earlier, you’ll need to have your own water piece to use the Hyer. You’ll want to get that out now. Fill it up with water like you normally would if you were using a regular bowl with dry herb, but remove the bowl, leaving only the stem and bowl adapter in the stem.

Insert the Hyer tank into the stem of your water piece, ensuring to hold on to your water piece until you know that it’s not going to tip over from the weight of the tank.

Remove the concentrates cap on the tank and load it with your concentrate of choice. You don’t need to use a lot; a rice grain sized amount will do.

There’s a tool that comes with the Hyer and this tool can be used to scoop your concentrates into the Hyer. It can also be screwed into the top or side of the cap, allowing you to easily and safely remove the cap to inhale and clear the chamber.

With your concentrates loaded, your cap on the tank, your tank inserted into your water piece, and the battery and tank connected by the braided cable, you can turn on the Hyer.

Press and hold the power button for three seconds to power it on. From here, use the left and right buttons to select your preferred temperature. If you’re just using the Hyer for the first time, I suggest starting at the lower (blue) temperature setting and working your way up to where you are comfortable.

Before starting, you should also set your session time. Hold both adjustment buttons together until the LEDs start to flash, then use the right button to max out the session timer to 75s. I prefer keeping the session timer at the lengthiest setting because you can always end it early, but it’s annoying when it shuts off before you’re finished.

With your temperature and session time set, press the power button twice to start the heat up. It should take around 20s to heat up when set to the lowest temperature setting.

Now inhale on your water piece like you would with any other bowl, and enjoy!

Dry Herb Tank

The dry herb tank is sold separately, but using it is similar to using the concentrates tank. You can easily swap out the tank by unscrewing the concentrates tank inside of the tank housing, and screwing in the new dry herb tank. 

From here, follow the same steps as above to use the dry herb tank. Use the temperatures found in this review (in the features section) or in the user manual for guidance.


Performance

G Pen Hyer Vaporizer - 11

Since the Hyer only comes with the concentrates tank, that’s what I’ll start off with. But G Pen was kind enough to also send me the dry herb tank, so I’ll also go over it’s performance afterwards.

The concentrates tank with the Hyer is amazing, especially since you can run it through your own glass and water cool the vapor. I experimented with all of the temperature settings, but I ended up settling on using either the green for a more mellow session, or the yellow when I really wanted to feel the effects of my material.

Using the Hyer was confusing at first, so I kept the user manual pulled out for the first few sessions. But once I had used it a few times, the operation became simple and straightforward; almost automatic.

I liked leaving the session timer maxed out to 75s so that I could vaporize every last bit of my concentrates without having to worry about the Hyer shutting off and I suggest that you do the same. The shorter session timers are good if you’re only going for one or two pulls, but for a full session the 75s time is needed.

The flavor and vapor that I get from this setup is full and intense. It’s quickly become my favorite e-nail to use, but only when I’m at home. Because while the Hyer does come with a travel case, you also have to somehow transport your glass water piece in order to use it and since they’re so expensive, I’m not taking the risk of it breaking. 

The dry herb tank is equally as good as the concentrates tank and that was surprising for me. I expected it to perform at a lesser level, but it’s actually really good. Running a dry herb vape through my water piece is something that I’ve missed, so it was nice to experience it with the Hyer again. 

With dry herb I preferred it on the red setting for maximum vapor, but experiment with the settings for yourself and see what you like. The green and yellow settings are good too, just not strong enough for me personally when ran through the water.


Verdict

Overall, the Hyer is a well-constructed, nicely designed, and solid device. The anodized finish scratches quite easily, but otherwise I have no complaints about the build quality. 

The battery itself is a bit bulky and heavy, and the tank housing is quite heavy too. Plus, you have to bring your glass water piece with you to use it outside of the house so there is some portability sacrificed with this device. However, the freedom to use your own water pieces is a big and unique feature of the Hyer, so at-home-use is really where it’s at with this e-nail.

I found the Hyer to be a bit complicated to operate at first, so new users may be daunted by the operation. However, the included user manual makes using the Hyer clear and new users should keep it handy for their first few sessions.
