The Utillian Brand of vaporizers is known for its high-quality units that don’t break the bank. The Utillian 722 is a fantastic convection unit designed to be a value driven option over vaporizers like the Crafty or the Mighty. In this guide, we will dive in and make sure you spend your money the right way.
The 722 is an upgrade to the Utillian 721. There’ are a couple different things including as you will notice right away the design, the airflow is a bit better, and they have increased the highest temperature to more capably handle your wax and concentrate and just to finish off your session with a nice hit.
- A new external design
- Convection heating
- Simple heat settings – four base temp and one boost temp, five total temps
- An improved mouthpiece straw durability and thickness
- A higher maximum temp of 225 extracts more fully and provides a great bump in wax performance
- A new gunmetal color option, an elegant two-tone design with black mouthpiece straw
- Solid battery life
How Does it Work?
The Utillian 722 is incredibly easy to use because it features one button operation. Five tabs will turn it on and two taps will switch between temperatures. Green is the lowest at 180 degrees Celsius, blue is next at 190, purple is next at 200 degrees Celsius, and red is the highest at 210 degrees Celsius. The 722 takes roughly 60 seconds to reach temperature. Utillian has also added a boost mode feature whereby you press and hold the button down to enter boost mode, the lights will flash red and it will automatically ramp up to its highest temperature (225 degrees Celsius).
You have to press and hold down the button in order to activate boost mode and hold it for the entire duration of your hit. We think this is a great way to finish off a session just by going right to boost mode in order to fully extract your herbs. The 722 is also compatible with waxes and extracts. Load your favorite extract into the canister, toss it into the chamber and you are ready to enjoy some flavorful concentrate.
The Utillian 722 features four preset temperatures, as I mentioned before, which range from 180 to 210 degrees Celsius. It also features a boost mode that pumps it up to 225 degrees Celsius which is great for extracts and finishing off your session. The boost mode in my humble opinion is the best upgrade that Utillian has in this device. Having a mode that automatically ramps up to 225 degrees Celsius is easily my favorite part of this device.
In terms of vapor quality, I will say the airflow has definitely been increased between iterations. It is a much smoother draw because of the open airflow but the great flavor experience of the 721 remains. As with most devices, lower temperatures give you better flavor and fewer clouds and higher temperatures sacrifice a bit of that flavor in order to pump out some serious vapor and extract the most out of your herbs. As mentioned, the boost mode will fully maximize your session and get you that extraction that you are looking for. As far as vapor production, there are few vaporizers that produce bigger clouds than the Utillian 722. For the price of this budget convection vaporizer, we were pleased with the vapor smoothness and flavor and also impressed with the cloud production.
Manufacturing Quality and Aesthetics
Utillian has greatly increased their manufacturing quality with an anodized aluminum shell that just feels better in the hand. It is definitely a sleek and stylish device which opts for a little more of a square look versus the rounded look that the Utillian 721 had. The 722 is offered in two colors, the gunmetal gray and black. The mouthpiece on the 722 is larger and much sturdier than the one on the 721 and it definitely optimizes air flow as well. We quite like the new mouthpiece and this further helps to optimize airflow for some serious cloud production.
Chamber Size and Heating System
The Utillian 722 chamber is made of stainless steel. It uses a convection heating system which is a noticeable upgrade over conduction vaporizers. Convection heating is a neat feature for a vaporizer that is this budget-friendly, as convection devices produce more flavorful and smoother vapor.
The Utillian 722 is powered by a 2,300 milliamp hour internal battery which should roughly last you about sixty minutes of continuous use. This isn’t the best battery life we have seen in a vape but it is definitely better than average. The 722 charges via a micro USB port at the bottom of the unit which is easy and convenient for everybody. We recommend carrying a portable battery around with you. If you don’t have one, pick up the Zeus Charge in the tea bag store. It’s a great little device for you to carry around with you all the time so you don’t run out of battery on your favorite vaporizers.
The Utillian 722 features an LED light at the bottom that shows your battery life. Green means fully charged, yellow means half charged, and red means just 10% of battery left before the unit runs out of juice.
The 722 is discreet for several reasons. First, it does not really look like a vape. This is true for a lot of herb vapes, as most are designed with discretion in mind. Like most herb vaporizers, this device will look more look more like a power bank than a vape to those that are not too familiar. Another element that yields itself well to the overall discreetness of the 722 is the design. Both the black and gunmetal finishes are standard power bank finish options, so it is not an obvious vaporizer.
If discretion is a priority for you, we recommend going with the black finish. Although both colors are quite stealthy, the black variant will probably draw the least attention.
In terms of portability, the Utillian 722 fits in a hand. It certainly slips into a pocket easily and is comparable to something like the Crafty. Perhaps slightly larger but overall around the same footprint. That being said, the Utillian 722 is definitely not the most portable vaporizer on the market.
Ease of Use
With the one-button design the 722 is super easy to use. Whether it’s for first-time users or seasoned vets, you should be able to pick it up and figure it out without even having to read the instruction manual. Getting good vapor production from the 722 is incredibly easy and is one of the reasons the 721 was so popular. It’s a very plug-and-play device just pick it up through your herb and pass it around at a party and no one will really have any questions.

Overall, we think the Utillian 722 is an excellent upgrade over the 721. They have streamlined the look of it which we really like, like we said before especially in that gunmetal gray. They have made a couple minor adjustments to things like air flow which make a major difference and that boost mode is just the icing on the cake. It’s a great way to end your session and make sure you extract the most terpenes out of your plants. Not only does the 722 do a good job of fully extracting your herbs but it also works very well with concentrates.
We are thrilled with what the 722 offers and we can easily recommend it as an upgrade to the 721 and definitely a cheaper more value-driven option to things like the Mighty and the Crafty. When it comes down to it, it’s just a great budget convection device.
