The G Pen Hyer is a portable e-nail that allows you to take precisely controlled dabs out of any bong, water pipe or other dab rig.
Featuring a powerful, high-capacity battery, the Hyer uses a controller with 5x temperature presets, and magnetically attaches to a large atomizer for taking precisely controlled dabs.
It’s like the bigger, stronger, more powerful version of the G Pen Connect, which we’ve reviewed previously.
It also has an adjustable auto-shutoff timer to control the length of your sessions.
Right out of the box, the Hyer is designed for dabbing cannabis concentrates, but it can also be adapted to vaporize flower using a separate atomizer for dry herb.
Each Hyer order is a full e-rig kit that comes with a hemp travel case. Each order includes the following:
- 1 G Pen Hyer battery
- 1 G Pen Hyer quartz tank for concentrates
- 1 G Pen Hyer concentrates tank cap
- 1 G Pen Hyer tank housing
- 1 G Pen Hyer 14mm male glass adapter
- 1 G Pen hyer power cable
- 1 USB to USB-C charging cable
- 1 dab tool
- 1 hemp travel case

How to Use the G Pen Hyer
The G Pen Hyer works for concentrates right out of the box. A dry herb tank and glass adapters to fit the joints of various sized rigs are available though.
Here is the most basic use of the Hyer right out of the box:
- Attach the controller/battery to the atomizer housing using the snap-on magnetic attachments.
- Plug the glass fitting on atomizer housing into any water pipe with a 14mm female joint.
- Load the atomizer up with your cannabis concentrates.
- Hold the power button for 3-seconds to power on/off.
- Select your desired temperature using the < and > buttons (blue is the lowest temp setting at 482F and red is the highest setting 824F).
- Press the power button 2x to start heating and once more to end your session.
I’ve used other e-nails in the past. They’re usually clunky with sloppy, exposed coils, ill-fitting bangers, and cheap controller batteries. The exposed coils make these designs dangerous and the temperature is often hard to regulate.
The G Pen Hyer, on the other hand, is beautifully designed and keeps everything nicely organized.
The magnetic attachments are great. It’s a breeze to snap-on the attachments to connect the controller battery to the atomizer housing. Same goes for the carb cap on the concentrate tank.
If you like taking fat dabs, the included atomizer has a huge quartz dish that’s heated by a steel heating element hidden underneath. No exposed coils means you avoid any risk of burning yourself.
The housing has is fitted with a magnetically attached carb cap. The included dab tools can be screwed into the carb cap for hands free lifting. Again, well thought out so you avoid any danger of getting burnt.
This thing has 5 presets that can take you from baby dabs with super tasty terps to high temps that will rip a lung.
Testing out some dabs
I tend to take tiny dabs because I enjoy a smooth toke and flavor from my concentrates. I find the middle settings, either the 2nd or the 3rd, works well for me.
You can use an adjustable timer to auto-shutoff too. I keep my sessions short, so the lowest setting for for me as well.
Testing dry herb
I think it’s so cool that you can switch from dabbing wax to vaping flower all in the same e-nail. This is the first device of this kind of that I’ve come across. Other vape-to-rig adapters I’ve used are typically just for dabbing wax.
Scoop and Tamp Tool Editor Choice
With the 2nd setting, it heats up the flower enough where I can see the chamber in my rig start to fill with light vape. It actually hits pretty hard without getting so dense and hot that it becomes uncomfortable.
For those with an iron lung or high tolerance, you will probably want to go north of the 2nd lowest setting. The 3rd and up will probably be your best bet.
Pro tip: When using the dry herb tank, don’t remove the carb cap to clear your hit.
It’s better to pull the entire housing out of the female join rather than remove the carb cap. Depending on your type of rig, inhaling from the chamber can causes a suction that adds back pressure. This build up of pressure can blow your herb right out of the oven if you remove the carb cap.
Trust me, I’ve learned this the hardware.
I’m not sure what the recommended way is to use the carb cap. I’ll have to dig around.
Since this device just came out, I’ll need more time to spend using both the concentrates and dry herb tanks. I’ll report back and update this review I’ve given it a fair assessment.
But so far, this thing rips and I love the design.
UPDATE: I’m now convinced that I get the best pulls when vaping dry herb on the 4th setting (yellow). I activate the device and let it heat for about 45 seconds. Then I start milking the chamber and pulling the Hyer our of the rig to clear it. I’ll do this about 4-5 times before the bowl is nuked. If you pop off the lid, you can give it a stir. This will give you another good hit or two, but it won’t taste as good as the first round of nice rips.
I’ll have to revisit this review for a final assessment, but it’s no doubt a great e-nail for dabbing concentrates. The added bonus that it vapes dry herb as well is really cool too.
