Airo Pro cartridges are filled with THC oil and they use magnetic hardware that is known for producing more vapor than traditional vape cartridge systems. Formerly Indigo Pro, Airo Pro vape pens are distributed by Airo Vapor. They are available in California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona.

Pros:

  • Great oil quality
  • Long lasting battery
  • Strong hits and thick smoke
  • Variety of carts available
  • Can be found in multiple states

Cons:

  • Battery indicator light not visible when hitting
  • Battery does not work with other cartridges by default
  • Cartridge sometimes has to be adjusted to hit

Reccommendations: Make the battery indicator light visible while hitting it. Include an adapter with the pen that works optimally with standard 510 threaded cartridges.

See below our video review on the Airo Pro vape pen and cartridges. Continue reading to see our more in depth written review.

Airo Pro cartridges are overall excellent

CCELL manufactures the hardware for Airo Pro vape pen batteries and cartridges. The difference with Airo Pro is is produces a bit more vapor than the standard CCELL cart. Airo Vapor also uses great quality distillates as the oil. For this Airo Pro review I tested both a Sativa and Indica cartridge.

Design and Build is unique to the Airo Pro vape pen, but awesome quality overall

The Airo Pro uses a CCELL cartridge that is not threaded. Instead of threading it has a straight magnetic connector. The magnetic connection had to be adjusted occasionally by popping the atomizer back in and pressing it. Not really a big deal and have had this happen wit almost every other cartridge type at some point with extensive use.

Only design flaw shows when the Airo Pro battery is dying

Airo Vapor’s battery for the Airo Pro cartridge system overall does a great job, but when it runs out of juice it can be hard to tell. The placement of the charging light that indicates the battery is dying cannot be seen while you are hitting it. You have to hit it real quick and turn it around if your vape is not hitting to see if it is dead. Sometimes it is just the cartridge needing an adjustment and the battery is still alive. Having the ability to see the battery status while hitting it would be a big plus. Many batteries do not have indicator lights at all.

How to tell the battery is dying

The battery vibrates in a way to tell you if it is dying:

One pulse – 30% battery left

Two pulses – 20% battery left

Three pulses – 10% battery left

Although I would prefer lights to tell, this still at least lets you know where the battery is at on the amount of power left.

Vibrates when you are hitting it

Taking a hit from the vaporizer results in a vibration you can feel. I like this feature as it lets you know when you are getting a hit or not. Adjust the cartridge by taking it out and putting it back in and moving it a bit if you are not getting it to hit. This is common with other carts as well, but with the vibration feature you get to that part a little faster since you can tell right away it if the vape pen is not hitting properly.

Carrying case is a nice bonus, but you pay for it

Airo Vapor throws in a carrying case with the Airo Pro. I really like the case and will use it to carry it around. You cannot fit regular CCELL carts properly in the slots, but could fit another similar sized stick battery in. The slots that hold Airo Pro carts fits other carts just fine too.

The Airo Pro vape pen case has a nice feel and carries multiple cartridges too.

The Airo Pro’s standard retail price at dispensaries is $35 while the CCELL Silo and Palm are $25. An extra $10 is not much compared to cartridge costs and you get a case, but the Airo Pro is not compatible with other cartridges without an adapter. I will make a separate post on using a PCKT One adapter with the Airo Pro to make it work with standard CCELL cartridges.

Oil quality shines on Airo Pro carts, top notch distillate

Airo Pro THC cartridges use distillate oil. I originally skipped the vape carts because I was told they were regular CO2 oil incorrectly at Nuwu dispensary. Sick of CO2 after too many CO2 carts I wanted some distillates and was directed to the less than stellar Cannabiotix vape cartridges. I went to Essence Tropicana a few months later. I was then correctly informed that they are distillate and bought a battery with two cartridges.

Even though it tested lower I liked the Northern Lights a little more than the Oz’s Orchard.

Airo Pro vape cartridges test high on THC and feel strong

THC percentage is not the end all be all of strength, but it does matter. Oz’s Orchard tested at almost 84% THC and Northern Lights tested at almost 74%. Airo Pro’s vaporization system is excellent. The experience is consistent. You have to use their battery, but that helps with consistency. We have found that CCELL carts work better with CCELL cartridges, and the Airo Pro forces that experience by requiring their battery.

Taste was stellar particularly on the sativa cart

I am not a big fan of flavor being added or where strength is sacrificed to add more terpenes. Although THC percentage is not everything, I generally try to pick out carts that are at least in the mid 70s. Budtenders often will recommend a cartridge due to flavor so it is always good to ask, is this one really strong?

Never tasted anything this good that had a similar THC percentage.

Stronger sometimes means worse flavor, not here

Many of our readers would just take strength over anything and there are a lot of carts that have more terps and less THC. Terps are important too but I rather take the higher THC percentage and that often results in not-as-good taste.

airo pro ozs orchard test results
Nice solid THC 83.577% THC.

There are lots of carts in the mid-high 60s for THC percentage that taste better than the finest distillate high percentage carts. Airo Pro’s indica cartridge tasted pretty standard for a distillate cart but in a good way. Taste was amazing on Oz’s orchard despite it’s strength.

airo pro northern lights test results
Tested lower, but effects were awesome on the Northern Lights vape cart.

Efficiency was as good as it gets

The Airo Pro was as efficient as any other CCELL cartridge. This is as efficient as cartridge can get at the current time.

Pretty much down to the last drop.

Number of puffs slightly reduced, but each hit bigger

Hits are bigger than off a regular battery and cartridge. This reduces the number of puffs but not in a negative way. The score has been adjusted higher here rather than just basing it off the actual number, because overall you are getting good value per puff here and that is the true purpose of the category.

It was totally worth it, would buy again

Value was on point with Airo Pro. The battery system costs you more to get in the door than some others, but the case is convenient and you get hard hits. Cartridges are the same price as other THC carts, but these are stronger, creating a better value.

Concluding this Airo Pro review…

The Airo Pro turned out to be a great system overall. Oil is strong and of great quality distillate. The battery is unique and puts out hard hits. The cartridges do not work on other batteries, but at $35 the Airo Pro vape pen battery is worth the cost. Plus it includes a useful carrying case.

  1. Do not buy this brand. I purchased a battery and two cartridges. The battery couldn’t make it through even one of the cartridges before it broke. I asked for and received a replacement battery. It did not work upon arrival. I asked for and received a second replacement battery. It too did not work upon arrival. Airopro has not responded to any further attempts at communication.

    • That’s awful. If you can email us at community@dabconnection.com we can try two things:

      1- I will email them on behalf of the site and see if that gets a response

      2- If not, we have an extra Airo Pro battery we can mail you

      I do think however your cartridge is somehow shorting the battery. I would try the next battery on the other cartridge only and see if it works.

  2. The battery sucks. It should be called intermediate vapor technology. Im on my 3rd battery in 3 weeks of use. The carts taste amazing but if the battery is junk then its pointless. It sucks to have 3 catrs and cant hit either…

    • Oh my that’s awful. I can’t say I had the same luck, I have two of them (one from just forgetting to bring it) and they both work fine.

      I have to suggest though I think this might be the cart shorting the battery? Seen this happen a long time ago on a different device. If they would take back that cart I would take back both and see if changing both helps.

    • I would love to get you another vaporizer! You should never have to pay for a replacement vaporizer. Just bring it in to the store and let them know there’s an issue and they should hand you another one. This is not normal and I’ve got Airo vaporizers from 2 years ago that work great and still hold a good charge. Reach-out to me directly and I’ll drop one off for you!

  3. Hello,

    This is Patrick with Airo Pro here in Nevada. To the few of you who had troubles with your batteries I would like to say I’m sorry and that it’s very uncommon. A fully charged battery will usually last the entirety of our 0.5g cartridge and there is a lifetime warranty on our units which are seemingly bulletproof most of the time with a 1% defect rate.

    There is a production number hidden under the top metal sleeve that hides the cartridge. I’m guessing the defective units were from the same production batch and we would love to get those defective units back in-house for testing as well as making sure our customers are happy.

    Please don’t hesitate to reach-out to me at:

    patrick@lvxtracts.com

    We take pride in our products and superior vapor technology. Thank you for the review and feedback!

  4. […] The strength of the cartridge was incredibly weak. When compared to other cartridges available in Las Vegas, strength came in weak. If I picked any cartridge off the shelf, way more likely than not it would be stronger than Brass Knuckles cartridge. Part of that is due to the hardware. The hardware just does not hit that hard. Second, there is also a limit on the THC percentage for 1 gram cartridges in Nevada. It is either 80% or 85%. But that is why you will find half gram cartridges have much higher THC percentages. I even took the oil and put it into a CCELL cartridge to see if it was strong. The hardware is definitely holding it back. However, the oil was still not as strong as that available from other brands such as Roots and Airo Pro. […]

  5. I love the battery but there are flavors that would be even better if I could use this battery with it. Is there any way to make this universal? I would love that and in sure more people would buy if you guys were the only way to get an adapter. It’s got to hurt sale to limit what people can freely do with their property. I’m just saying I find that I trust brands more when the make things convenient for me. But I feel like I dont have any choice in where I get my cartridges and that just turns me off completely. Also military discount would be nice..

    • If you’re located in Washington you should visit Zips Cannabis Tacoma on 38th St.! We sell 510 adaptors for Airo Pro and we also provide 15% off for military. Hope this helped!
