How to Use the Utillian 722 & Ease of Use
Just like its siblings, the Utillian 722 is a dry herb vaporizer that is extremely easy to use. There is only one button to press to operate this vaporizer. Just pop off the top, load your herbs and hit the single button five times. The device takes less than 30 seconds to heat up, which is pretty quick.
While the unit is on, two clicks of the power button will let you toggle through the temperature settings. Pressing and holding the button will put the Utillian 722 into its boost mode. This will quickly heat the unit up to 225°C/437°F. The 722 from Utillian vapes can also vape concentrates with the included wax canister.
722 Temperature Settings
There are four pre-set temperatures on the Utillian 722 vape: 180°C, 190°C, 200°C and 210°C (356°F-374°F-392°F-410°F) and these temperatures are color coded in the same order as Green, Blue, Purple and Red. For a device that is closer to premium than most, we would have liked to see precision temperature controls, but the boost mode does make up for that a little bit. The boost mode quickly heats up the device to 225°C/437°F, which is a great way to finish off your session. The best hits come with the 190°C/374°F and 200°C/392°F settings to start off your session and with boost mode finishing it off. We get into more details about the vapor production in Utillian 722 Vapor Quality section.
Utillian 722 Heating System and Chamber Size
The chamber on the Utillian 722 is made of stainless steel. The heating system is convection, which is a noticeable upgrade over conduction vaporizers. Convection heating is a welcome feature for a device that is this affordable as it convection vaporizers produce smoother and more flavorful vapor. This unit can fit 0.3 grams of herb in the chamber, which is a nice size.
Utillian 722 Vapor Quality
The flavor and smoothness of the Utillian 722 is solid. It’s not the absolute best when it comes to vapor quality and taste, but it is definitely above average. For a budget convection vaporizer, we were pretty happy with this unit. As far as vapor production, you would be hard-pressed to find a vaporizer that produces bigger clouds than the 722. There is a trick to getting really good vapor with the 722. Fill up the chamber but don’t pack it too tight as it can reduce airflow and you don’t want to restrict the airflow. Then turn the unit on at 190°C/374°F or 200°C/392°F wait till it heats up then take steady long draws between 5-7 seconds long. You’ll feel your lungs fill up. We found we got really great vapor with this method even at 180°C/356°F.
The upgraded maximum temperature of the 722 makes for better concentrate rips than its younger sibling. For the price of this budget portable vaporizer and what it is, we were happy with the vapor flavor and smoothness and very impressed with its cloud production.
Utillian 722 Battery Life
The 2300mah battery on the Utillian 722 is decent, it’s about an hour. Most consumers will get about an hour of continuous usage out of the 722. We’ve seen longer battery life like the Zeus ARC with 1.5 hours or the Mighty with 3 hours but those units come with a price increase as well. 772’s battery is internal, but it can be charged via micro-USB, which is convenient and easy for just about everybody.
There is an LED light at the bottom of the 722 that indicates your battery life starting from green being fully charged to yellow half charged and red meaning only 10% of battery left before the device runs out of juice.
Aesthetics and Manufacturing Quality
The 722 has a design that is more square than the original 721. If you like devices with more rounded edges, you might like the 721 better than the 722, but the new 722 seems a bit sexier and better build. There are two color options – black and gunmetal. The black version has a rubberized finish, while the gunmetal version has a solid aluminum exterior.
This is not a device that you will need to worry about breaking in case of an accidental drop. For such an affordable price, we were impressed with the build quality of the Utillian 722. The rubberized finish feels better than the previous version the 721 and feels more sturdy, specially the mouthpiece.
Portability and Discreetness
The 722 fits pretty easily in most pockets, but it’s not the smallest vaporizer out there. It’s just about the same size as the previous version the 721. If you are looking for a great way to protect your Utillian 722, check out this water and wear-resistant vape case from Tools420.
As far as discreetness goes, it doesn’t stand out as being an obvious vaporizer. It can be relatively concealed in the palm of your hand. However, the vapor production is high with this one, especially on the high settings. You will be blowing large clouds with the 722, which could draw quite a bit of attention unless operating the unit at lower temps and taking shorter draws.
What comes with Utillian 722
Along with the unit itself, the Utillian 722 comes with a cleaning brush, tweezers, a wax tool, and a wax canister and a USB cable. The Utillian 722 vaporizer also comes with a 1-year warranty.
How to Clean the 722
Like all of the units from Utillian vapes, the 722 is easy to keep clean. Just take some cotton swabs dipped in isopropyl alcohol to the mouthpiece and the heating chamber. Doing this will remove bacteria and debris. If you are looking for a way to keep your vapes clean without having to dip your Q-Tips in alcohol, check out these vaporizer cleaning sticks from Tools420 to make your life easier.
For a device that is this affordable, the Utillian 722 vape is a solid choice for newbies and for experienced vape consumers looking for a convection device that can vape concentrates as well as dry herbs. The vapor flavor and quality aren’t the absolute best on the market when it comes to portable vaporizers, but it is certainly solid and the vapor production on this unit is very good. The fact that the maximum temperature has also been upgraded is a welcomed addition with the 722. The battery life is decent but still has room for improvements. The exterior shell of the 722 is prone to dings and scratches if you aren’t super careful, but that’s not a huge issue. We would also prefer a device that offers precision temperature controls, but the boost mode of the 722 helps with that as well.
Another device that we feel is a good comparison for the 722 is the Crafty by Storz and Bickel. They both are convection vaporizers, same battery life, similar in size but some minor difference like the temperature options and vapor flavor is slightly better on the Crafty but the 722 is more affordable.
