- Micro USB charging cable
Compatibility: The Uni is compatible with pre-filled THC and CBD oil cartridges.
Design and Features
General Design: The Uni definitely stands out from the crowded field of box style 510 batteries thanks to some unique design touches. You’ll no doubt notice the knob just beneath the opening of the cartridge receptacle. This knob is used to adjust a shutter in the receptacle opening that allows it to accommodate cartridges of any diameter. You just turn the knob until the shutter clamps down firmly on the cartridge so that it doesn’t rattle or shift around.
The other innovative feature is a lever on the bottom of the battery that adjusts the cartridge chamber to three different heights. So, now you can choose how far you want the mouthpiece of your cartridge to stick out. The magnetic 510 connector is taller than normal in order to enable this feature. Both of those features make the Uni a truly universal—yep, that’s what Uni stands for—battery that can fit any type of cartridge.
The Uni also has a window that enables you to view the oil level of your cartridge no matter which height you choose. The power button is well placed high on the device and the USB port is on the side, so it stands upright while it’s charging
Portability: The Uni is a little taller and wider than some other 510 batteries, but it still very portable. I never had any problems slipping it into my pocket and it feels good in my hand. In fact, it feels better than the really small batteries since I can reach the power button with my thumb more easily.
To give you some perspective, it’s smaller than the Yocan Delux, but bigger than the mini oil vape that is part of the Delux. The Uni doesn’t feel particularly bulky and it is very light, so it never feels too intrusive when it’s being carried around.
Build Quality: This battery has a texture that is really pleasant to the touch. It feels like silicone paint sprayed over plastic and I like it better than most metallic finishes. The reason is that it doesn’t get scuffed or scratched, so it will stay looking as good as new for a long time.
How to Use
- Screw your cartridge onto the magnetic adapter and then place it into the cartridge chamber.
- Use the knob to adjust the shutter until it holds the cartridge firmly in place.
- (Optional) Use the lever to adjust the cartridge to the height you find most comfortable.
- Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
- Press the power button three times to select a voltage setting.
- Once the voltage has been reached, inhale from the mouthpiece.
Voltage Settings: 3.4V | 3.8V | 4.2V. Note that these settings are not indicated anywhere on the device, this information comes from the manufacturer.
Performance and Vapor Quality
Device Performance: The Uni was able to securely hold any cartridge I used without any problems. The adjustable shutter works like a charm to hold the cartridge nice and tight without any jiggling or looseness. Height adjustment is also great because it means that I can adjust my comfort or stealth level. The highest setting feels the most comfortable, but the lowest one is great for vaping low key. Heat up times are quick too, so no complaints on that front.
Vapor Quality: I prefer to use the Uni on its lowest setting because it felt the most comfortable to me. That setting brings out the full flavor of any of the cartridges I used. However, cloud production is minimal on that setting. If it’s big clouds you want, then choose the highest voltage and go to town.
Battery Performance: The battery has a capacity of 650 mAh and lasts for a long time before it needs a recharge. When it is time for a recharge, you don’t have to wait long because it charges in under an hour. The main downside to the battery is that there isn’t an indicator to show you how much juice is left, so it can suddenly die on you if you don’t charge it regularly.
Yocan Uni vs Atmos Micro Pal vs KandyPens C-Box 510 Battery
The Micro Pal and C-Box are both high quality batteries that are good alternatives to the Uni if you want more voltage settings. The Pal is the smallest of the lot if size is your priority. The C-Box includes different sized adapters so that you can choose the height of your cartridge. But, as you know by now, the Uni has that function built into it.
