CCELL® batteries and vaporizers have been some of the most popular vaping products on the market since the brand’s introduction in 2016, and the reason for the company’s success has everything to do with CCELL®’s revolutionary patented ceramic vape coil. Designed to deliver a reliable and enjoyable experience with even the thickest vape oils, the CCELL® coil was so much better for oil vaping than the cotton- and silica-based coils of the past that there was little reason to use anything else.
The CCELL® brand has expanded rapidly over the years and now includes a wide selection of vape cartridges, 510-thread batteries and vaporizers all designed to make maximum use of the CCELL® ceramic coil – so if you’re in the market for a new vape, there’s a good chance that CCELL® products will be at the top of your list.
Before you buy your next device, though, it can be helpful to understand what CCELL® products are, how they work and what makes them different from other vapes. Those are the things you’re going to learn as you read this comprehensive guide. By the time you’re done reading, you’ll have a much better idea of what device will be the right one for you and why.
CCELL® History: How Did CCELL® Get Started?
CCELL® developed and obtained a patent for its ceramic coil technology in 2014, and the company’s first products reached the market in 2016. The main inspiration behind the CCELL® ceramic coil was to develop a vape coil capable of working with very thick oil-based concentrates without delivering harsh, unpleasant “dry hits.”
Before the development of the CCELL® coil, the majority of the vaping products on the market used wicks made from either cotton or silica. Those materials work well with thinner liquids, but they’re very inefficient when it comes to absorbing viscous oils. Because oil-based concentrates don’t absorb readily into cotton or silica, coils made with those materials tend to have poor flavor quality and inconsistent performance when used with oils.
Upon its release, the CCELL® coil was so superior to the existing technology for oil vaping that it quickly became the top choice for all vape pen owners.
Understanding the Science Behind CCELL®
To know why the CCELL® ceramic coil works so well for oil vaping, it’s important to understand the scientific principles behind the use of ceramic as an absorbing material in a vaporizer. Ceramic, after all, is a solid – how can it absorb oil?
The reason why the CCELL® ceramic cylinder works for vaping is because it is actually porous. The ceramic mixture is blended with minute organic particles that burn away during the firing process, leaving a cylinder that’s solid but has thousands of tiny holes. As you use your vape pen, the oil saturates the cylinder by flowing through the holes. Although ceramic wicks have long existed in other types of products, the application of ceramic to vaping was truly revolutionary at the time and changed oil vaping forever. It was immediately obvious that CCELL® cartridges were the best vape cartridges on the market.
Since developing the first ceramic vape coil, the engineers at CCELL® have continued to make consistent improvements to the company’s products. Recent CCELL® products, for instance, use a new corrosion-resistant coating that greatly extends the life of the coil’s metal heating element.
Different Types of CCELL® Batteries and Vaporizers
CCELL® vaporizers fall into three categories, and you need to understand what those three types of vaporizers are if you want to choose the device that’s right for you. They are:
- 510-Thread Batteries: This type of vaporizer is a rechargeable device that’s meant to work with pre-filled or refillable vape cartridges. You use the device by charging the battery, connecting a cartridge and puffing on the cartridge’s mouthpiece. Since a 510-thread battery is rechargeable – and vape cartridges are generally very affordable – a 510-thread battery is one of the most inexpensive types of vaporizers you can buy. Learn more about 510 vape pens and how they work.
- Pod Systems: This type of vaporizer is designed to work with empty or pre-filled pods. You use the device by charging the battery, pushing in a pod and puffing on the pod’s mouthpiece. When the pod is empty, you’ll replace it with a new pod. Pod systems are sometimes smaller and sleeker than 510-thread batteries, but they can cost a little more over time because they only work with the pods designed for them. Learn more about CCELL® pod systems vs. disposables.
- Disposable Vapes: This type of vaporizer is available either pre-filled or empty, and it’s charged and ready to use out of the package. Disposable vapes are small, simple, convenient and affordable. The only drawback is that once a disposable vape runs out of oil, you need to replace the entire device.

How to Use CCELL® Batteries and Vaporizers
CCELL® vaporizers are some of the most user-friendly vaping devices on the market, but it’s still helpful to understand how your device works before using it for the first time. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to using a CCELL® battery or vaporizer.
- Connect the battery to your computer using the included charging cable. When the battery is fully charged, the indicator light will change color or turn off. At this point, the vaporizer is ready to use.
- Fill an empty cartridge with oil or connect a pre-filled cartridge to your device. If you’ve never filled an oil cart before, read our guide on how to prime and fill a CCELL® cartridge.
- Puff gently on the cartridge’s mouthpiece when you want to vape. Inhale the vapor into your lungs and hold it as long as you like before exhaling it.
- Recharge the vaporizer when the light begins to blink.
- Refill or replace the cartridge when it’s empty.
If you want to have the best possible experience with a CCELL® battery or vaporizer, you need to remember these two things.
- Puff very gently when you vape. Otherwise, you could force oil out of the cartridge’s coil assembly. The oil will either end up in your mouth, or it’ll cause a clogged cart.
- If you’re using a refillable cartridge, always refill the cartridge before it’s completely empty to avoid dry hits.
Maintaining a CCELL® Battery or Vaporizer
If you want to have the best experience with a CCELL® battery or vaporizer, you need to keep your device clean. That’s especially true if a cartridge leaks because if oil collects in your battery’s threading, it can prevent the device from working at all.
- You can clean the main body of your CCELL® vaporizer with a soft lint-free cloth.
- If oil leaks in your vaporizer’s threading, remove it with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Absorb the excess alcohol with a dry cotton swab and wait until the threading is completely dry before vaping again.
CCELL® Battery or Vaporizer Not Working? How to Fix It
Almost every vaping device experiences occasional problems, and the most common problems that you may experience with a CCELL® vaporizer include a cartridge that isn’t hitting and a battery that doesn’t charge. Here are some quick tips that can help you resolve those issues.
- CCELL® Cartridge Not Hitting: If you have a cartridge that isn’t hitting, you should try a different cartridge if possible to confirm that the problem is actually the cartridge and not the battery. In most cases, you can fix a cartridge that isn’t hitting by charging your vape pen’s battery, cleaning the device’s threading and making sure that the cartridge is firmly screwed in.
- CCELL® Battery Not Charging: If you have a CCELL® vaporizer that isn’t charging, you should start by trying a different cable because USB cables that are frequently used will often fail without warning. Charge your CCELL® battery only by connecting it to your computer. If the charging port is dirty, clean it with a toothpick.
- CCELL® Cartridge Tastes Burnt: If you’re getting a burnt flavor with a CCELL® cartridge, you should first make sure that the cartridge isn’t empty and that you’re waiting several seconds for the ceramic cylinder to refresh itself after each puff. If you’re using a new cartridge that you’ve just filled for the first time, wait at least a half hour before vaping because it can take a while for the ceramic to saturate fully. You may also find it helpful to warm the cartridge gently between your hands, which can loosen cold oil.
Most Popular CCELL® Batteries and Vaporizers
The two most popular CCELL® vaporizers on the market are the CCELL® Silo and the CCELL® Palm Pro. We’ll discuss some of their features and differences.
- CCELL® Silo: The CCELL® Silo costs just $16.49 and is one of the most popular 510-thread batteries for beginners. It has a 550 mAh battery that’s regulated to operate within a power range of 3.2-3.6 volts for ideal performance with any connected cartridge. Sleek and stylish, the CCELL® Silo is extremely light and fits comfortably in any pocket.
- CCELL® Palm Pro: The CCELL® Palm Pro costs $34.99, and it’s an ideal vaporizer for those who need a device with more advanced features. It offers variable power levels and operates at 2.8, 3.2 or 3.6 volts. It also has an automatic preheating function that helps to loosen thicker oils. To ensure that you’ll enjoy a perfect draw every time, the CCELL® Palm Pro has fully adjustable airflow.
Although the CCELL® Silo and CCELL® Palm Pro are both impressively small, they’re both compatible with all CCELL® vape cartridges, including ones that store a full milliliter of oil.
All CCELL® vaporizers come with a full suite of built-in safety features including overcharge protection, battery cell monitoring and short circuit detection. In the unlikely event of a short circuit. a CCELL® vaporizer automatically shuts down output from the battery.
What Are the Future Trends for CCELL® Technology and the Vaping Industry?
In the future, CCELL® product engineers will continue working hard to make the company’s products safer and more reliable by incorporating purer materials and more reliable technologies such as more advanced power regulation circuitry. CCELL® commitment to safety is evident in the company’s new anti-corrosion coating and the fact that the company’s coils already meet or exceed the most stringent standards for heavy metal content.
You can also expect the vaping industry’s technologies for the creation of vape oils to continue advancing rapidly. You can already buy vape cartridges pre-filled with a variety of individual hemp-derived cannabinoids such as THC-P, THC-B and HHC-O, and it’s likely that there are many other useful cannabinoids that scientists either haven’t discovered or haven’t figured out how to isolate yet. Single-cannabinoid vaping is undoubtedly the future of the vaping industry, and you can expect the selection of cannabinoids to expand rapidly over the next few years.
Finally, it’s likely that the vaping industry will continue to expand its efforts in the fashion world. Today’s vape batteries are already impressively compact and stylish, and continued improvements in lithium-ion battery technology will help manufacturers continue to push the envelope in that area. It’s equally likely that companies will augment their products with luxury materials such as leather, unusual metal alloys and more.
