The PCKT One Plus is a portable, hand-held vaporizer for distillates that uses a wide-open, 510-threaded attachment as well as an internal 660mAh battery. The PCKT One Plus uses a single-operating button that can switch between automatic and manual controls so users can control their vape.

The entire device features a solid aluminum alloy build and the exterior of the device is so small it can disappear in the palm of your hand. The One Plus also takes a wide variety of oil-cartridges, as it includes a special magnetic adapter to connect to non-510 oil cartridges and tanks.

A Closer Look at the Device

The PCKT One Plus is a very simple, easy-to-use vaporizer. It does not have a screen or any adjustment buttons beyond the central firing/power button, which controls everything about the device. The button also features an LED ring that shows users the battery life, as well as the current power setting – the device has three different power settings.

The entire PCKT One Plus starts as a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum, which gives the device its lightweight but durable frame. It has a rounded frame, as it eschews straight edges, which gives the device a very ergonomic feel to it. The PCKT Plus also has a low-impact, low-profile frame, which makes it great for a portable, discreet, on-the-go device.

There is a single operating button, and there is a universal USB port on the bottom of the device that is for charging the 660mAh battery. There is also a small, pinhole LED next to the USB port that shows users when the device is charging and when it is done. The open-mouthed cartridge bay lets users install cartridges as wide as 11.5mm (0.45”).

The device comes with two, different-sized magnetic adapters so users can switch between small and large cartridges. They can screw on the adapters to 0.5ml tanks or 1ml tanks so that they can fit nicely within the device’s frame. The magnetic adapters also lift the tanks out of the slot so users can easily access the tank’s mouthpiece.

Kit Contents

The PCKT One Plus promises versatility and flexibility with its two magnetic adapters. It also includes a proprietary SPRK cartridge that can hold between 0.5ml and 0.8ml of liquid concentrate in its glass build.

Here’s what else to expect from the PCKT One Plus kit:

  • One x PCKT One Plus
  • One x Short Adapter
  • One x Tall Adapter
  • One x USB Cable
  • One x Warranty Card
  • One x User Manual
  • One x SPRK Cartridge

Outstanding Features

The PCKT Plus One is remarkable for its size, portability, and discreteness. The device, even with a loaded cartridge inside, can disappear in a closed fist or pocket easily. It stands just under 4” tall – even with a cartridge installed – and measures barely an inch across. The cartridge slot measures a little wider as it can accommodate tanks as wide as 11.5mm (0.45”).

The main power button is on the bottom of the device and is oval-shaped. It is backlit by an oval-shaped LED that shows battery life and current power setting. The overall build of the device is solid, and it feels like it could handle daily use, even on-the-go. The button responds well and it does not get jammed,

The SPRK cartridge also has excellent build quality. It has a top-fill system with a threaded top cap that users can remove to fill the tank. It has fine, stainless steel accents on the base and top cap, with a glass tank section. Inside, the tank uses a ceramic core atomizer.

Instructions

The PCKT Plus One along with the SPRK cartridge are very user-friendly. They are meant to be with their simple, streamlined designs. The battery section has only one-button so users can get started vaping right away as long as the internal batteries have a suitable charge. Users can check the battery level with the main firing button just by turning it on, which takes five clicks of the button.

But to check the battery life when it is functioning, users need to press the button once, which will then change the LED to either green, yellow, or red (indicates a charge is needed). Even though the battery comes loaded with three different power levels, users need only press the firing button twice to switch between the levels.

Each level has its own color:

  • Blue – low power – 3.7W
  • Green – medium power – 4.3W
  • Red – high power – 5.1W

When the battery needs recharging, the device can be plugged into any compatible USB port with the provided USB charging cable. The charging port is on the bottom of the device and there is a small LED located next to it. When charging the light will turn red. When fully charged the light will turn blue.

Build Quality of the PCKT One Plus

The PCKT Plus One has many good qualities among them: the variable voltage levels, the low-effort cleaning and maintenance, and the quality of vapor from the SPRK cartridge. But, of course, since the two magnetic adapters can take any size or style of tank, it is also great for use with a wide range of tank options.

The size of the device is also a winning quality. It is very ergonomic and comfortable to hold, while in the pocket, users will even forget that it is there. The variety of power levels also gives users different vapor quality. Users who prefer more flavor can use the lower to mid-range settings, while cloud chasers can set the battery to its highest level.

The SPRK cartridge is also easy to handle. The top, metal mouthpiece screws off so users can fill the glass section of the tank. There is no dedicated fill port, as the entire mouthpiece comes off so users have to fill the tank along the side of the glass. Users should use a syringe-tipped bottle or container to fill their tank, as anything larger will not fit along the sides of the tank. SPRK cartridges have varying capacities, so users should know how much space they have to fill before filling it or keep a close eye on their levels when filling.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The entire Plus One device requires little maintenance. The exterior battery does not need much attention, but the tanks or the SPRK cartridge may need a little cleaning so the chimney does not get clogged. The magnetic adapters and the interior of the cartridge may need a scrub with a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol, Users must be careful though and not use too much liquid. They should turn the device upside down and make sure they do not get any excess liquid into the battery section.

Competing Devices

PCKT One Plus vs PCKT One

The Original PCKT One featured the same 510-threaded magnetic adapters as the new version, but it only had a 540mAh capacity battery, compared to the 660mAh battery on the new PCKT One Plus. The original device also only had two different power levels that users could choose from.

PCKT One

The first PCKT One also had a bigger size compared to the more streamlined PCKT One Plus. Both devices do share the pass-through charging feature as well as the five-clicks-on, five-clicks-off feature.

CCELL Silo

The CCELL Silo is also a battery device for pre-filled or refillable oil liquid cartridges. The device carries an internal 500mAh battery good enough for 200 puffs. The Silo is an air-activated device so users can simply inhale from their mouthpiece to start vaping.

Closing Thoughts: PCKT Plus One Review: Vape Oils Discreetly

The PCKT One Plus has been making a lot of noise in the distillate vaping world. It is an achievement for its pocketable size and comfort, while it also produces high-quality vapor. The 660mAh battery can last for a good long while, especially as users can select between the three power output levels.

The SPRK cartridges are also the perfect companion to the mod section. The SPRK cartridges have great build-quality and use many liquid holes in the chimney to vape liquids evenly and smoothly. The mouthpiece gives off great airflow and there are a few air holes along the bottom section for excellent cloud production.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.
