Why Isn’t My Cartridge Full?

Marketing Dep. 2019-02-22


“Less is more” are words a lot of people live by. It also applies to filling CCELL cartridges. You’ve probably noticed when making your purchase that usually the cartridges are not filled up. There is always tiny headspace above the oil level. How did the tiny headspace end up there? Does it mean that you didn’t get what you paid for? Read on to find out!
 

Hide and Seek in Highly Absorptive Atomizer


If you purchased pre-filled CCELL carts, some of the extracted oil has been absorbed into the ceramic heating elements. After filling the carts, we usually advise oil manufacturers to let them sit there for a while in order for the ceramic atomizer to be fully saturated so that when they land in your hands, you can start vaping right away. No prime time needed. 

The ceramic heating elements, however, are usually a bit bigger than other atomizers on the market, and more importantly, they have incredibly high absorption ability. According to our researchers and engineers, one CCELL ceramic heating element can absorb up to 150 milligrams of the extracted oil, resulting in part of it “missing”. 

Your Purchase Is Worth Every Penny


In addition, when using a pressing machine to press the mouthpiece into the reservoir, it creates a bit of air pressure which is also likely to lower the oil level. 

Last but not least, at the design stage, engineers at CCELL have already considered all the possibilities and made the reservoir larger for headspace. For example, if you purchase a cart with 1-gram oil, the actual full capacity of the cart itself is around 1.25 grams. A completely full reservoir may increase the risk of oil leakage.   

Our goal is to bring simply the best vaping experience to you and make sure that every penny you spend on CCELL count. Got more questions? Connect with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and let us know!
