The CCELL® Silo is simply one of the best oil vaporizers you could ever own. Sized appropriately to fit almost any oil cartridge, the CCELL® Silo is incredibly sleek and portable thanks to a recessed threading design that allows most of the cartridge to hide inside the body of the device. One of the most unique features of the CCELL® Silo is a magnetic cartridge connector that allows you to swap between cartridges with ease – and as you vape, you’ll enjoy the windowed side panel that allows you to see your remaining oil at a glance.
Although the CCELL® Silo is full of technological advancements that enhance the quality of your vaping experience, those enhancements wouldn’t mean as much if the Silo wasn’t simple and enjoyable to use. Thankfully, ease of use is the Silo’s strongest point because this device has no controls whatsoever – all that you need to do is puff to vape. Thanks to the Silo’s built-in 550 mAh battery, you’ll have no trouble vaping all day on a single charge.
As great as the CCELL® Silo is, you may still have some questions about using it if you’re new to vaping – and if you’ve searched online, you’ve probably noticed that a good CCELL® Silo instruction manual is hard to find. With this guide, we’re going to rectify that problem. Reading this manual, you’re going to learn everything you could possibly want to know about using the CCELL® Silo. If you’re experiencing a problem with your device, you’ll also find troubleshooting information here. Let’s begin with some general information about how to use the CCELL® Silo.
How to Charge the CCELL® Silo
To charge the CCELL® Silo, connect it to your computer using the micro USB cable included in the package. When you connect the Silo to a power source, the light should immediately turn on to indicate that the battery is charging. From that point, all you need to do is wait for the device to finish charging. When the charging cycle is complete, the light blinks 20 times and turns off.
The CCELL® Silo is designed for low-amperage charging, so you shouldn’t connect it to a high-speed charger like the one that you use for your smartphone. A high-amperage charger isn’t good for any vaping device and could potentially cause the battery to overheat.
How to Fill a CCELL® Vape Cartridge
The CCELL® Silo works with almost all oil vape cartridges, so there’s no need to worry if filling a cartridge feels like too much work. You can always buy pre-filled cartridges online or in a local dispensary and use those instead. If you want to save a little money by buying your oil in bulk, though, you’ll find that filling a vape cartridge isn’t that hard as long as you have a blunt tip syringe.
- Begin by confirming the volume of the cartridge you’re using. Most vape cartridges hold either 0.5 or 1.0 ml of oil. Load that volume of oil into your syringe.
- Unscrew and remove the cartridge’s mouthpiece to expose the filling hole.
- Place the tip of the syringe into the cartridge’s reservoir, which is the entire area around the center air channel. Inject all of the oil into the cartridge. Don’t overfill the reservoir; it’s normal for a vape cartridge to have a little empty space at the top.
- Screw the cartridge’s mouthpiece back on and wait 30 minutes before vaping to ensure that the ceramic wick is completely saturated.
How to Load the CCELL® Silo
The CCELL® Silo is unique among vaporizers in that you don’t screw your cartridge directly into the device. Instead, the device has a magnetic connector that allows you to simply drop your cartridges in and switch between them whenever you like. To load a cartridge into the CCELL® Silo, start by screwing one of the two included magnetic adapters to the bottom of the cartridge. After you’ve done that, simply slide the cartridge into the opening at the top of the device. When you’re ready to discard a cartridge, don’t forget to remove the magnetic connector first.
How to Vape with the CCELL® Silo
The best thing about the CCELL® Silo is that using it is incredibly easy because it has no controls whatsoever. To vape, all that you need to do is puff on the connected cartridge. That’s it! If the light blinks several times when you attempt to use the device, it means that the battery is dead. Connect the device to your computer to charge the battery.
How to Fix Problems with the CCELL® Silo
Although problems with the CCELL® Silo are extremely rare, you’re bound to experience issues with any oil pen if you use the device long enough. If your device isn’t working as you expect, here’s what you should do to fix it.
CCELL® Silo Not Charging
If the indicator light on the CCELL® Silo doesn’t light up when you connect the device to your computer, the battery isn’t charging. In that case, you should first check the device’s charging port to confirm that it isn’t dirty. If you find pocket lint or other debris caught in the charging port, use a toothpick to remove it. If the Silo still isn’t charging, replace the USB cable.
CCELL® Silo Not Hitting
If your CCELL® Silo isn’t hitting, the first thing you should do is confirm that the battery is fully charged. The indicator light should turn on when you connect the device to your computer. If that doesn’t happen, refer to the section above to troubleshoot that issue.
If the Silo still isn’t hitting, remove the cartridge from the device and unscrew the magnetic adapter from the bottom of the cartridge. Check for leaked oil in the cartridge’s threading, inside the magnetic adapter and in the chamber of the device. If you find oil, use an alcohol-moistened cotton swab to remove it. Reattach the magnetic adapter tightly and place the cartridge back in the device. If the Silo still isn’t hitting, try a different cartridge.
CCELL® Silo Tastes Burnt
If your CCELL® Silo tastes burnt, the first thing that you should do is check the level of oil remaining in the cartridge. If the cartridge is empty, it’s time to refill or replace it. If the cartridge still has oil remaining, make sure that you’re always giving the wick several seconds to replenish itself after every puff.
CCELL® Silo Cartridge Clogged
If you’re using a very thick oil, you may find that the oil doesn’t flow quite as quickly through the cartridge when it’s cold as it does when it’s warm. Try puffing on the cartridge a few times briefly to warm the coil and loosen the oil. If that doesn’t work, you can try running the cartridge under warm water for a few minutes. If you have trouble inhaling through the cartridge, the center air channel could be blocked. Use a bent paperclip to remove oil stuck in the airflow channel.
