Vessel currently has the best airflow on the market. Their original Vessel battery has stayed on our best batteries for THC carts list since the list began. There’s no denying there’s something special about the way the Vessel batteries hit CCELL carts, the most popular type of cartridge hardware, and the Compass hits just as good.
Currently, the Compass replaces the original Vessel battery as my favorite battery for CCELL carts.
Recommendations: A stand to make it sit upright would be nice
I am putting the Compass a hair ahead of the other Vessel battery due to its higher battery capacity and awesome form factor. Right now I can’t think of a better battery for CCELL carts. CCELL is practically everywhere from Jetty Extractsin California to Rythm in Illinois, CCELL has become the standard.
The Compass vape battery was made with CCELL carts in mind, but still does an awesome job hitting Rove and other brands.
Whether you hold it from the front or the back, you can pretty much just squeeze your hand when the battery is on and take a hit. The battery also does not annoyingly pop out and go off randomly like we see happening on the XTube 710.
As far as looks, I prefer the gold look over the black and gray. Either way and in any color, these are stylish looking batteries. When you use a Vessel, you won’t look like a cloud-chaser pulling out a funky mod.
The carts are protected by the battery. Half grams are all the way in, full grams stick out a little but are still mostly protected. You can drop the Compass battery quite a few times with the carts staying safe.
Besides the airflow, this is my next favorite feature about this battery. The way the button is positioned you can be holding it on either side, just squeeze and you can hit it. Either your fingers or the pressure of your palm if it is flipped around will active the battery.
This type of design addition is what makes it a step ahead of other batteries.
You can drop the Compass and it won’t break. At least that’s my experience after four drops so far. It seems to be constructed stronger than the original Vessel battery.
The 550mAh battery capacity is a big size increase over the original Vessel. The original Vessel is a 280mAh battery. It does charge really fast though which partly makes up for the lack in capacity. At 550mAh, the Compass is almost twice the battery capacity and on par with the CCELL Palm and Silo in mAh.
You should be able to go through about 750mg of THC oil in a cart before you need to recharge again.
There is no weakness coming off the Compass. Very strong hits identical to that on the original Vessel battery. The key characteristic to hits off both these batteries is how smooth it is. I have yet to see another battery that gives out this type of smooth and strong hit combo on CCELL carts. The Vessel Compass gives the best airflow on CCELL carts and works great on Rove too.
The airflow is the exact same as the original Vessel battery, which is as good as we’ve seen so far for CCELL carts. Turns out it works great for Rove too. We have not yet tried enough different batteries with the Rove cart to say the Compass is the best, but so far it hits excellent and much better than the mod battery previously used with Rove.
The Compass goes for $59 plus tax, less than most of the other traditional Vessel batteries. While $59 is on the higher end of prices, it’s also a higher end and better performing product. Simplicity of operation, auto shutoff, and the best airflow make it worthwhile.
I think with Vessel batteries due to the better airflow, I am getting at a minimum 5% more use out of each cart than if it was on something else with less airflow, like the Dipstick Duo. So over the course of the year, it more than pays for itself. If you hit carts once in a while, then it might not be worthwhile to you.
Overall, the Vessel Compass is one of the best batteries out there. Currently, it takes over for the original Vessel as my favorite battery for CCELL carts. At $59 it is expensive, but if you hit a lot of carts, you make it back in the excellent quality hits you get due to the superior airflow.
