I recently got a chance to review the CCELL M3 Plus Battery from VPM. It is a standard battery meant for a 510-threaded cart. The battery is stainless steel and 0.41” wide by 3.4” tall. Here is a quick rundown of some of the features of this battery.
- Inhale activated
- USB-C charging port
- Temperature control
- Decent hardware quality
Recommendations: Some indication of low battery would be great
There’s no button on this battery so you just inhale to use it. There is a little LED light at the bottom which activates when the battery is working. I do like that this is a white LED light vs a green one which I have seen quite frequently. I personally like using vaporizers and edibles because they are considerably more discreet than smoking traditional flower. While not a complete giveaway I feel like the green LED light as opposed to blue or white screams “this is weed” to anyone who might be looking. It is a 350 mAh capacity battery with a USB-C charging port. I really like this feature specifically because I feel like a battery in the 510 chargers can be a bit heavy for my computer’s USB ports. I do not know that it is necessarily damaging but it feels like they are.
- Battery capacity: 350mAh
- Dimensions: Φ12 x 86.4H (mm)
- Body: Stainless steel
- Standard 510 thread
- Dual-heat slide switch
- Inhale activated
- Built-in LED indicator
- Type-C charging
- Available for customization
Nice temperature control
Another cool thing about this battery is the switch at the bottom. I know many inhale-to-activate batteries do not have any form of temperature control but this one has it. It is only a two-way high-low switch with 3.3V and 2.8V of power respectively. But it does make a noticeable difference. When first trying out the battery I kept it on the low setting of 2.8V. The CCELL M3 Plus helped me get quality and smooth hits when I kept it on low. However, that little boost up to the high setting is great. Sometimes, I feel like I don’t want a smooth light hit but something much more intense. I remember I used to hear the myth that coughing makes you higher. I don’t know if that’s true. To be honest, it sounds like it’s not. But regardless that’s the kind of hit I was looking for and it was definitely delivered when I used the M3 Plus on the high 3.3V setting.
Decent battery life
In terms of battery life, it feels pretty good. While I have been using this product for a week it has never run out on me. So yes while I have charged it, it has never been out of necessity. However, there is no battery indicator light from what I can tell on this product (not unlike many others) so I could never really be sure how much life was left in the battery. Generally with products like this, it feels like a guessing game based on how well the cartridge is still pulling.
For the price, the CCELL M3 Plus is definitely a quality battery. It is pretty solid and sturdy. It has a variable power switch and is activated just by inhaling. The battery also comes in 5 different colors, although I have been using the silver one. And all of this is for only $14.95 from VPM.
Concluding this review
I would definitely recommend this battery to anyone looking for a new and affordable replacement. In my experience, most batteries priced under $15 have questionable quality and durability. That is not something I have noticed at all with the CCELL M3 Plus nor is it something I’m expecting. If I could add one feature to this battery though it would be some sort of indicator on the LED light that it is running low. Maybe a red glow instead of white when it is being used would work.
