I am well known for my extensive researching, and I take pride in finding new brands/products, but I cannot take credit for this find. A valued customer of mine reached out to me via Instagram to introduce the Hamilton Devices brand (thanks Josh!) and it was love at first sight! I owe him big time.
Hamilton Devices are experts in all things CCELL. They are internationally recognised for their superior CCELL (Ceramic Heating) Technology Cartridges as well as their incredibly innovative oil and/or wax vaporisers.
Medicinal Marijuana oil cartridges are now available on prescription in Australia and for these you will require a 510 threaded battery stick of sorts. This is definitely one such battery.
510 threaded batteries come in many styles, ranging from simple pen styles and ones that are shaped exactly like an old fashioned pipe. Some require you to thread the cartridge directly onto a connector (510 connection) whilst other’s are the “drop-in” style. Both styles have pros and cons associated with them. The Shiv falls into the “drop-in” category whereby your cartridge sits deep within the device, kept safe.
TIP: Should hold almost all 510 threaded cartridges.
The Shiv is described as the world’s first Switchblade battery. Equipped with a switchblade mechanism that offers discretion. Designed for those that love stealth. Small and compact with minimal markings. Both 0.5ml and 1ml should fit. Depending on the length of your cartridge it should be able to hide completely within the Shiv. Pop the cartridge out via the thumb slide on the side. Fully rechargeable via USB-C Charger and a full charge will not take long (less than 2 hours).
As with all Hamilton Devices units this battery contains a High Quality Circuit Board within making this a very safe battery. The battery capacity is 900mAh, quite a good amount which should last for a while before a recharge is required. This battery works via button activation and has variable voltage. You can individually adjust the voltage in 0.1V increments with a range between 2.0V – 3.8V. On the side of the Shiv is the power button, OLED Screen and +/- buttons making it pretty easy to use. A puff counter is also included enabling you to keep track of your usage.
TIP: All good cartridge batteries should have variable voltage in my humble opinion as various extraction methods can result in thicker or runnier oils. I tend to recommend the lowest temperature/voltage possible for good vapour production/effect.
