Our Verdict

The PCKT Two is all-around the best 510 battery that I’ve used. It has a gorgeous, high-end design that really stands out from the competition, and the build quality is excellent. Comparing the look of the PCKT Two to other 510 batteries is like comparing a smartphone to a flip phone — there’s really no comparison. 

In addition to its portability and great looks, the PCKT Two also delivers on features and performance. By using one of the two included adapters, you can use any 510 thread cartridge with a diameter of less than 12mm, which means that it’s compatible with 99% of cartridges out there. The five voltage settings from 2.43V to 3.84V provide a good voltage range that will work perfectly with most 510 cartridges on the market, refillable or prefilled alike. Plus, you can use draw or button activated firing depending on your preference. 

The options to adjust the LED brightness or change the strength of the haptic feedback are by no means necessary, but they are nice to have. These settings just mean that you can further customize the PCKT Two to be just the way you want it.

PCKT’s SPRK and SPRK Ceramic cartridges are also excellent. They each deliver clean flavor, smooth vapor, and a burnt-hit-free experience, no matter how thin or thick my oils/distillates are. They also last for multiple refills without a drop in flavor or performance, so they’re great carts all around.

Overall, I can confidently recommend the PCKT Two and SPRK Cartridges to anyone looking for a new 510 battery, a new refillable cartridge, or both. Give them a try, and don’t be surprised when you’re echoing all of the sentiments that I had here!

CHECK PRICE

PCKT Brand is a company that specializes in smoking and vaping accessories. In just a short period of time, PCKT has become well-known in the vaping community for their high quality 510 thread batteries and 510 cartridges. Their PCKT VRTCL 510 battery received high scores from reviewers and positive feedback all-around from vapers, so they definitely know a thing or two when it comes to concentrate devices. Their 510 cartridges are also very popular, and are meant for use with oils and distillates.

PCKT Brand’s latest 510 battery is the PCKT Two. It’s compatible with most 510 thread cartridges and uses magnetic adapters for easy use. It has 5 voltage settings, haptic feedback, and features both draw and button activated firing. The PCKT Two has a 660mAh battery that recharges with Type-C Charging.

In addition to going over the PCKT Two in this review, I will also be going over PCKT Brand’s refillable SPRK 510 Cartridges. These cartridges use a dual ceramic heating core and will hold either 0.5ml or 0.8ml of oil or distillates.


Box Contents

  • 1 x PCKT Two Device
  • 1 x USB-C Cable
  • 1 x Warranty Card
  • 1 x User Manual
  • 2 x Magnetic 510 Adapters

The PCKT Two comes in a triangular box that looks really neat. The box unfolds to reveal the device, as well as a load of information about the PCKT Two which is written on the inside of the box.

In the box you get the PCKT Two Device, a nice braided USB-C cable, a warranty/authenticity card, a user manual, and two magnetic adapters for 510 cartridges. As you’ll notice, the box does not include a 510 cartridge, so you’ll have to purchase that separately (PCKT’s SPRK cartridges can also be purchased on their website). 


Design & Build Quality

  • PCKT Two and SPRK Cartridge - 1

The PCKT Two has a modern and high-tech design that is unlike any other 510 battery that I’ve seen before. It’s 71mm tall, 35mm wide, and 16mm thick, so it’s quite a tiny device. It’s also quite light, and with a cartridge installed it feels solid but not heavy.  

It has an oval shaped body with rounded edges that feels natural and comfortable to hold. I can completely palm this device, which is nice for those stealth hits. While it’s not the smallest or most portable 510 battery, it’s small and light enough that you won’t have any trouble carrying it around in your pocket, bag, or purse.

While other 510 batteries are made of plastic, the PCKT Two is CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum. It looks and feels like a premium device, and the matte paint finish is aesthetically pleasing and feels nice to the touch. Only taking the design and build quality into account, the PCKT Two looks and feels like it’s worth far more than the $79.95 price tag. 

On the front face of the PCKT Two there’s an engraved PCKT logo at the top. Near the bottom, there’s an oval power button that is surrounded by an LED ring. This device is both draw and button activated, so depending on the cartridge that you are using, you can use whichever one you prefer. Not all cartridges will work with the draw activation, and in this case you can just use the button activated firing.

The PCKT Two is compatible with any 510 cartridge that is less than 12mm in diameter, so it will work with pretty much every 510 cartridge on the market. Since cartridges attach magnetically to the PCKT Two, you get two magnetic 510 adapters in the box. These adapters screw onto the bottom of your 510 cartridge in order to make it compatible with the PCKT Two. One adapter is short and meant for larger capacity cartridges, while the other adapter is taller and meant for smaller capacity cartridges.

Once the adapter is fitted, cartridges fit right into the PCKT Two and make a solid connection. The magnetic connection is quite strong, so once a cartridge is attached it isn’t going to fall out by accident. When you want to remove a cartridge, it takes a little force to remove but it’s not a struggle.

On the bottom of the PCKT Two is where you will find the USB-C charging port. The PCKT Two takes around 45 minutes to fully recharge, and it can be used while it recharges.


How to use the PCKT Two

  • PCKT Two and SPRK Cartridge - LED and Power Button 2

The PCKT Two has a single button which controls all of the features and functions of the device. It’s a little confusing at first but once you get the hang of it, using the device is a piece of cake. For starters, to turn the device on or off is a straightforward 5 clicks on the fire button.

The PCKT Two features both draw and button activated firing. Not all cartridges will work with the draw activated firing, and for those that don’t you can simply press and hold the fire button and draw.

An interesting feature is the haptic feedback. The device will vibrate when you press the fire button, as well as when you start the draw activation. This is useful because it lets you know that you are actually activating the draw function, and not just pulling without getting a draw. There are a few more ways the haptic feedback is helpful, which I will detail as this section goes along. To change the strength of the haptic feedback, press the power button 4 times. There are five vibration settings, including completely off. 

There are 5 power levels that you can choose from on the PCKT Two, which is great for adjusting the strength of your draw to just how you like it. Each power level is indicated by the color of the LED ring. The colors and voltage outputs are:

  • Light Blue: 2.43V
  • Dark Blue: 2.73V
  • Orange: 3.09V
  • Red: 3.54V
  • Purple: 3.84V

2.43 to 3.84V will work for the vast majority of oil cartridges on the market, so it’s a good range that gives you a lot of choice with how you want your draw to be. To change the voltage, press the power button twice. Then, click the power button to cycle through the five output settings. When you find the setting that you want, you can either long press the fire button, or do nothing for a few seconds and the output level will be confirmed. If you have haptic feedback turned on, the device will vibrate each time you cycle through the output levels.

The brightness of the LED ring can also be adjusted from dim to bright. To do so, press the fire button three times. Then, click the power button to cycle through the five brightness settings. The lowest brightness setting is useful for stealth draws when you’re in a dimly lit area, while the brightest setting works great in brightly lit situations, like when you’re out in the sun. The haptic feedback will vibrate once on the dimmest setting, twice on the next setting up, etc…

If you press the fire button quickly, the LED ring around the button will light up to indicate your battery life. The colors are:

  • Red: 0-25% battery
  • Yellow: 26-50% battery
  • Green: 51-100% battery

When you press and hold the fire button to draw, the LED will light up in the color that indicates your current voltage output level. This LED design is neat, because you can see key information just from pressing the button. Want to know your charge level? Press the button once. Forget what voltage output you set it to? Press and hold the fire button. 

As I mentioned, it can be confusing at first to remember all of the settings. Hell, I’ve been using the PCKT Two for two weeks now and I still get mixed up with how to change the haptic feedback or the LED brightness. But to effectively operate and use the PCKT Two, you really only have to remember these two button combinations: five clicks to turn it on or off, two clicks to adjust the voltage output. The other button combinations are useful to remember off-hand, but not necessary. If you forget ’em, just look it up in the manual or inside the box.


PCKT Two Button Combinations

  • Power ON/OFF: Click the fire button 5 times.
  • Manual fire: Press and hold the fire button.
  • Change voltage output mode: Click the fire button 2 times. Next, click the fire button to cycle through the 5 power modes. Long press the fire button to confirm your selection.
  • Check battery life: Click the fire button once.
  • Check voltage output mode: Press and hold the fire button until it vibrates.
  • Adjust LED brightness: Click the fire button 3 times. Next, click the fire button to cycle through the 5 brightness settings. Long press the fire button to confirm your selection.
  • Adjust haptic feedback strength: Click the fire button 4 times. Next, click the fire button to cycle through the 5 haptic feedback levels. Long press the fire button to confirm your selection.

SPRK Refillable 510 Cartridges

PCKT Two and SPRK Cartridge - 4

In addition to their 510 battery devices, PCKT also sells their own 510 cartridges. These are the SPRK and SPRK Ceramic 510 cartridges. These are sold separately and do not come included with the PCKT Two. Both cartridges can be refilled by unscrewing the mouthpiece, and then filling between the coil and the glass. 

The SPRK Cartridge houses a 1.5Ω dual ceramic heating core and can hold up to 0.5ml or 0.8ml of oil or distillates, depending on the one that you get. These come with either a standard 510 threaded connection, or with a magnetic base that will work perfectly with the PCKT Two.

The SPRK Ceramic Cartridge is PCKT’s newest cartridge and it’s built entirely out of Ceramic. If you’re concerned with your oil or concentrates touching metal or other materials, there’s none of that here. The SPRK Ceramic uses the same 1.5Ω dual ceramic heating core as the original SPRK Cartridge and it will hold up to 0.8ml of concentrates.


Performance

PCKT Two and SPRK Cartridge - 2

The PCKT Two uses the RCKT 2 chipset, which is PCKT’s own in-house chipset. From what I’ve experienced in this review, the chipset is reliable, accurate, and consistent. This chipset is also responsible for the multiple modes and features that the PCKT Two has, and it does a good job of handling it all.

Battery life from this little guy is impressive. I got a few hundred hits per battery charge, and that’s with vaping on the two highest voltage settings. You can definitely stretch out the battery life a little more if you use the lower voltage settings, but the PCKT Two delivers respectable battery life either way. 

As I mentioned a bit earlier in this review, the PCKT Two is compatible with most cartridges under 12mm in diameter. I tested it with a few different pre-filled THC, Delta-8, and CBD cartridges and they all worked without a problem so the compatibility of cartridges with this device is high. 

All of my cartridges also worked with the draw activated firing, so I can’t imagine very many cartridges won’t. However, even though they worked, I still preferred using the button to “preheat” my oil a little before drawing. That’s one downside to the PCKT Two; no dedicated preheat functionality. 

I found that most of my cartridges gave me the best draw when I had the PCKT Two set to either the red (3.54V) or purple (3.84V) voltage output settings. All of my cartridges delivered good flavor, great draws, and didn’t give me any burnt hits. 

Speaking specifically to the SPRK and SPRK Ceramic cartridges, I got clean flavor and smooth vapor from both. I didn’t notice much of a difference between the original and the ceramic SPRK cartridge, but the all-ceramic construction is definitely a big plus if you’re concerned about metal and other materials affecting the taste. The SPRK Ceramic cartridge does deliver a slightly “truer” and more accurate taste, but it’s not a very noticeable difference.  

The only small complaint that I have is that the vapor is a little cooler than I desire, but it’s not a big enough deal to turn me off from using these cartridges.

I’ve refilled the SPRK and SPRK Ceramic carts a few times with CBD oil, THC distillate, and D8 distillate, and they are just as good as when I started using them. I can definitely see these lasting for weeks if treated right, so the value to performance is definitely there with these carts.


Verdict

The PCKT Two is all-around the best 510 battery that I’ve used. It has a gorgeous, high-end design that really stands out from the competition, and the build quality is excellent. Comparing the look of the PCKT Two to other 510 batteries is like comparing a smartphone to a flip phone — there’s really no comparison.

For both health and financial reasons, I knew I had to quit smoking cigarettes. At a certain point I felt as if I had tried everything and it was too difficult to quit cold-turkey. That's when I found vaping and I've been off the stinkies ever since! I love testing and reviewing the latest vaping gadgets, marathoning television series and playing with my awesome dog Lupa.
