Vessel has arrived in Bondi! A brand I have had my eye on for a while now as I constantly strive to up the game in my Bondi Herbal Vape Store. As a sucker for well thought out design and beautiful aesthetics, Vessel was an easy pick for me. Vessel makes battery sticks for 510 threaded cartridges and that is pretty much all they do. Not just any old battery sticks but by far the most beautiful ones I have ever seen. To use their own words “our products are built better, designed smarter and inspire optimism and happiness”. Quite a big call from a battery stick and I wish them all the best!
TIP: Please register your device with Vessel direct for warranty purposes.
This is the Compass Series, Vessel’s high-capacity small stature battery sticks. I call it is a stick but a stick it is not and it is oval in shape! Nice and weighty, small enough to fit entirely in your palm with a large power button upon the front. Your cartridge slips into the very top where it is protected (partially dependent on length) by the body. This opening is quite wide (1cm) but just be aware that very wide cartridges may not fit (almost all standard ones should fit). The Compass Series has an interesting cartridge swivel system. You drop your cartridge directly into the opening and swivel once. Your cartridge is now in place. You can then rotate the cartridge whilst in place to line up your mouthpiece.
Vessel doesn’t skimp on functionality with high-performance air intake design, delivering perfectly tuned airflow. What does this mean? Each inhale will be effortless and smooth with a satisfactory level of cloud production, but no battery stick can perform miracles and poorly produced oil/cartridges may present with some issues (sorry!).
Smart Power Technology has been incorporated to help keep you (and the battery) safe with the following included;
- Overuse protection – 8 second use limit
- Auto shutdown – Power off after 15 minutes of inactivity
- Charging cut-off switch – kicks in when fully charged
The lithium-ion rechargeable battery has a fairly high capacity of 550mAh, and the optimised power band provides you with 4 options (voltages) for temperature selection – 2.4V, 2.8V, 32.V and 3.6V. Clicking on the power button 3 times will cycle you through all 4 options (colour coded LED lights).
A standard USB-C Charging Cable is provided in this kit for a super-fast charge. The port is located at the very base of the battery. From start to finish this is a quality piece of kit.
TIP: As I always recommend please start on the lowest voltage setting to find the optimal setting for your particular oil.
