Modular PenSimple

How I turn on my PenSimple?

  • Press the the power button twice in quick succession.
  • The PenSimple will vibrate to signify it has turned on.
  • Make sure your unit is charged, which means charging your unit until the red LED turns off.

Why is the power button LED not turning on when charging?

  • It’s possible that the charger is not fully plugged in. Make sure the charging cord (micro USB) is fully inserted into charging port on the unit.

How do I load my PenSimple?

  • Remove the cap piece (there is a magnetic connection).
  • You can simply put your herbs in through there or use the included funnel.You can load your PenSimple with whole or ground herbs.
  • When grinding with your PenSimple, don't fill the grind chamber .

How do I get the best grind?

  • Be gentle with ground or whole herbs. Don’t overload the grind chamber or push down hard on the cap.
  • Gently push down and grind smoothly away as it gradually falls into the magnetic seal.

Why is my PenSimple not dispensing correctly?

  • Ensure herbs are cured and ground properly.
  • When dispensing, hold the PenSimple vertically.
  • Don't pack herbs tightly into the dispense section.

Some of my herbs fell out the point of the PenSimple?

  • When you are done using the PenSimple, give the point a gentle tap against whatever you are loading.
  • When dispensing, hold the PenSimple vertically.
  • If you recently purchased your PenSimple, this problem will correct itself as you use your PenSimple. This break-in period prevents dispenser jams throughout the life of your PenSimple.

Why does my PenSimple vibrate?

PenSimple uses a vibrating motor to let you know what is happening. PenSimple vibrates when:

  1. The PenSimple is dispensing
  2. Two buzzes - when manually turned on or off
  3. Two buzzes - after 3 minutes of being on and not used, your PenSimple will automatically turn off

Why did my PenSimple vibrate 5 times?

That means something is off with the dispenser. Gently clean inside the dispenser section with a Q-Tip to ensure no herbs are stuck. If the error persists, check our warranty policy and we will replace your dispenser.

How do I maximize storage?

You can maximize your storage by taking out the grind teeth which allows you to fit 3 grams in the PenSimple. Follow these steps:

  1. Remove cap, unscrew grind cylinder
  2. Unscrew the grind chamber + grind plate
  3. Attach grind chamber to dispenser
  4. Snap loading funnel into grind chamber
  5. Load with ground herbs
  6. Add cap and store securely

How do I clean it?

PenSimple is modular! Unscrew the grind plate and cap, and use a Q-Tip, toothpick, pipe cleaner, or compressed air to clean out any herbs that may be inside.
