CCELL sent over their new CCELL Luster Battery and CCELL Luster Pods for me to try shortly after announcing the new product a few months ago.
CCELL is a leading vaporizer battery company from Shenzhen, China that has been leading the industry for many years now. If you’ve ever vaped before in the last decade, you’ve probably inhaled at least one smooth hit from a CCELL battery. CCELL offers everything from 510 threaded to pod style form factors so they’re able to supply the (electric) juice to go with your preferred type of vape juice.
Over the last decade, they have set the standard with their new products and are the gold standard when it comes to ceramic heating elements. CCELL’s ceramic coil actually features a patented ceramic formula that utilizes a high-temperature manufacturing process known as sintering to end up with a ceramic that has way more nanoscale inlet holes than normal.
What that means for us vapers that aren’t rocket scientists is that CCELL’s ceramic coil is able to better absorb both heat and oil - resulting in a superior hit even for higher viscosity oils and juices. And that is just one of 400+ patents that CCELL holds in the vaping industry.
CCELL’s products are made in their 1000 square meter facility which coordinates the efforts of over 260 engineers. Their high standard production facility is operated at ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 13485, and GMP certificate standards.
The CCELL Luster Battery comes with 350mah battery capacity and a handy micro USB charging port. The CCELL Luster Battery takes both 0.5ml and 1ml CCELL Luster Pods - you’ll notice the plastic housings for both come with your CCELL Luster Battery. The Luster Battery itself is a beautiful epitome of sleek and minimalist design. The battery is available in multiple colors - all of which are featured on the Luster’s zinc alloy body which is both strong and resistant to tumbles and falls as well as very aesthetically pleasing.
The Luster Battery measures in roughly 11mm by 21mm by 83mm which makes it significantly skinnier than a normal BIC lighter while being a little longer. The CCELL brand name is emblazoned lengthwise in the middle of the Luster while a single indicator light sits right above it. When you hit the CCELL Luster Battery, it will glow white while the electricity is flowing and the coil is heating.
The Luster Pods feature CCELL’s patented ceramic formula and are optimized to work with a whole range of viscosities. Whether you plan to use vape juice or something a little more sticky, the Luster Pod will be able to handle all of it. All in all, CCELL is so confident in the superiority of its products their website notes that “CCELL batteries are capable to provide 25% more vapor production when compared to other brands.”
Filling up the CCELL Luster’s pod is exactly as you might be used to from the Dart and Uno pods. Make sure you don’t add any vape juice or oil to the middle metal tube. Instead, go on either side and fill evenly. Make sure to let the pod sit and let the cotton soak the juice or oil for at least thirty minutes to avoid a burnt taste later on. Once the vape juice is settled, click on the lid and then put the entire pod inside of the plastic housing/mouthpiece.
I tried the pods with vegetable glycerin (VG) CBD vape juice and was able to produce ridiculously sizable clouds for such a small and convenient form factor. Usually, just a VG mix without any propylene glycol in it isn’t as visually appealing when vaporized. However, I was blown away by the amount of vapor the CCELL ceramic coil was able to produce.
The taste didn’t have any burnt coil or cotton taste or smell and was a solid but smooth stream of vapor, that did seem to clock in at 25% more volume than others. Between the magnetic locking mechanism and the thinner, longer form factor, the CCELL’s new Luster Battery is sure to be a looker. Don’t be surprised if your friends start lusting after your new setup. Just make sure you don’t let them pocket it!
Ease of use: 4.8/5
Overall score: 4.9/5
CCELL has produced recognized, quality batteries for many years now. The CCELL Luster Battery is the latest in that long and distinguished trend. Use the Luster on the go and enjoy a vaping experience worth lusting for.
