The AiroPro turned out to be a great vape pen system with quality THC cartridges.
IMPORTANT UPDATE 3/11/21: AiroPro has now rebranded its distillate as AiroPod. Their products now look like this:
Same company with their website at Airo Brands. The below review mentions their old cartridge product line. We will have to get around to reviewing their new product line.
AiroPro 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, AiroPro vape pens are distributed by Airo Brands Inc. They are available in California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona. They made are best cartridges lists for both California and Nevada.
Since AiroPro launched it’s original cart and we did this review they have come out with additional lines of carts. This review covers the original flavored carts that are still available. Check out our reviews of AiroPro’s live resin and Live Flower series to see the new lines they have come out with. Their live resin made our best live resin carts list as the strongest currently available.
- Great oil quality
- Long-lasting battery
- Strong hits and thick smoke
- Variety of carts available
- Can be found in multiple states
- Battery indicator light not visible when hitting
- The battery does not work with other cartridges by default
- Cartridge sometimes has to be adjusted to hit
- Battery has had high failure rate, but they do replace it
Recommendations: Make the battery indicator light visible while hitting it. Include an adapter with the pen that works optimally with standard 510 threaded cartridges.
Licensing Information: LVPCA Lic. #1037731824-000-PRO
Update 11/30/2019: If you have had an AiroPro battery fail, most dispensaries will replace it for you, but call them first. If they will not, contact Airo Vapor support for a replacement. The UWOW Storm battery mentioned below is currently our pick for best battery for AiroPro cartridges.
See below our video review on the AiroPro vape pen and cartridges. Continue reading to see our more in-depth written review.
AiroPro cartridges are overall excellent
CCELL manufactures the hardware for AiroPro vape pen batteries and cartridges. The difference with AiroPro is is produces a bit more vapor than the standard CCELL cart. Airo Vapor also uses great quality distillates as the oil. For this AiroPro review, I tested both a Sativa and Indica cartridge.
Recently Airo Vapor issued a statement regarding vape safety. Take a look below.
Over 3,000,000 units sold and no health complaints. AiroPro carts are available in multiple states and they follow all proper procedures in making their products.
Design and Build is unique to the AiroPro vape pen, but awesome quality overall
The AiroPro 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 AiroPro battery is dying
Airo Vapor’s battery for the AiroPro 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.
The best battery for AiroPro is the UWOW Storm
This little known battery from a now possibly defunct company works best with AiroPro. We do disclaim here this battery was not designed for AiroPro, made by CCELL nor designed with AiroPro in mind. We just had an AiroPro battery go bad once and this was lying around and it worked.
The key is don’t use the magnetic adapter when you use the UWOW Storm with an AiroPro cart. Just pop it in and it works. If it’s being picky pull it out push it in and twist it a bit.
We originally received the battery it as a sample from UWOW when they sent us their C-Rex cartridge. We could not find them anymore and think they may have gone out of business. However, the UWOW Storm is still sold in a lot of places. So far the cheapest we have found is $15.99 at City of Vape. With shipping about $21 for most people in the US.
The Storm battery has lasted so far about a year and as you can see above it’s taken some beatings. Lots of drops and falls, still going strong. Hits off this are also harder than on the regular AiroPro battery.
4.0 volts seems to be a good setting. Don’t good too high as you may blow the cartridge. Another plus is you can bring the magnetic adapter and only need one battery for regular carts and AiroPro. The Storm battery also works with both top and bottom airflow 510 carts when the magnetic adapter is used.
Carrying case is a nice bonus, but you pay for it
Airo Vapor throws in a carrying case with the AiroPro. 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 AiroPro carts fit other carts just fine too.
The AiroPro’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 AiroPro is not compatible with other cartridges without an adapter. I will make a separate post on using a PCKT One adapter with the AiroPro to make it work with standard CCELL cartridges.
Oil quality shines on AiroPro carts, top-notch distillate
AiroPro 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.
AiroPro vape cartridges test high on THC and feel strong
THC percentage is not the end all be all of the strength, but it does matter. Oz’s Orchard tested at almost 84% THC and Northern Lights tested at almost 74%. AiroPro’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 AiroPro forces that experience by requiring their battery.
The 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?
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. There are some carts that test high in THC, taste good, but still are not that strong, like we found on our Flav cart review.
There are lots of carts in the mid-high 60s for THC percentage that taste better than the finest distillate high percentage carts. AiroPro’s indica cartridge tasted pretty standard for a distillate cart but in a good way. The taste was amazing on Oz’s orchard despite its strength.
Efficiency was as good as it gets
The AiroPro was as efficient as any other CCELL cartridge. This is as efficient as cartridge can get at the current time.
Number of puffs slightly reduced, but each hit bigger
Hits are bigger than of 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
The value was on point with AiroPro. 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 better value.
Concluding this AiroPro review…
The AiroPro 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 AiroPro vape pen battery is worth the cost. Plus it includes a useful carrying case.

Have you tried any AiroPro carts before? Post your review below! Questions or comments? Post below or in our forums!
Included with some of the tiny handheld/palm ccell vape batteries is a small magnetic adapter ring 510-threaded. This will adapt almost any 510-threaded vape cartridge to fit the airopro. Even carts that seem too wide for the airopro will usually fit with an extra push and the magnetic adapter piece attached to the cartridge.
Can you use any magnetic cart in the air pro battery?
My spouse popped out the little metal plug on the bottom of the cart. How does it go back in ?
I don’t like this style cartridge. Why not just make to fit most batteries? It’s just frustrating to get home and find out it doesn’t fit any of my batteries. It’s lame. I’m not gonna keep buying batteries bro! Fucking hate AiroPro.
Got to admit, I see your point!
The cannabis industry is still in its pioneer days, maybe some standardization will happen eventually. The federal illegality of cannabis keeps the market more fractured than it has to be.
I bought one of the UWOW storm mods, however it didn’t come with a manual or anything. Do you have any idea where one might be online? My main difficulty is wanting to reset the puff counter on it and being unable to find any information or methods anywhere on how to do it.
Not sure that the puff counter can be restart at all! UWOW went out of business and there are less and less of them now available.
Besides the puff counter was there any other issues? Those we may be able to answer here and thanks for commenting!
I’ve been wondering lately about the consistency of the oil inside the Airopro carts or any other multi state brands. I mean that I wonder if there is a level of consistency from the Airopro Carts, or as they have now started calling them, “Airo Pods”, from one state to the other. Also, I’ve been wondering if there is a difference between the stuff that the state brand uses in the Airo Pods vs. their regular 510 threaded carts.
For example, here, the company that fills the Airo pods is called Buckeye Relief, and they also make regular carts, vape pens, and concentrates. I’ve been wondering what the difference is between the Airo pods they sell vs. the disposable vape pens, for example, assuming that they are both distillate or live resin, so “apples to apples”.
The batteries seem to fail after a couple months of light use. Stores near me will not replace after 10 days. Really like the cartridges though.
and I found the flavors overwhelming and odd, but my friend was ok with the flavor
I had a bad experience with this brand.
Bought a pen for myself and one for a friend
Between the two of us we bought 8 cartridges. 3 of 8 got clogged up. My shop indicated that if the cartridge was not utilized frequently enough, that could happen. WHAT? I have to vape more than I want, in order for the cartridges to work properly?
FYI A single cartridge last me a month, so it is not like I left it to sit for a year.
another FYI, the battery would last for 2 cartridges. That was good.
That’s awful and there has been some batch problems with Airo Pro. I would try reaching out to their support directly and see what they can do:
Also it MIGHT get unstuck by using a hair dryer on it first and thinning the oil with heat, then try to hit it. Last, the battery messes up quite often and I think this battery is better:
Just pop the cart in without the magnetic adapter that comes with the battery. Runs great that way.
Will these work with any vape? I have a Yocan Evolve Vape Pen that I’m having trouble attaching
No they require a special battery – they should have mentioned that at the shop!
So there’s a few options:
1) $35 AiroPro battery with case at the dispensary
2) $15 AiroPro battery comes without the case
-most dispensaries that carry AP got at least one of those in stock
Then there’s this that works too:
This one is only $16 – don’t use the magnetic adapter with AiroPro just pop it in. I think this one hits best because you can up the voltage, but probably best to stay 4.2 volts and under. It’s not an official made-for-airopro battery but testing around came across this and it works even better!
I live in Georgia but travel to Cali and Colorado on business frequently and have a pretty good supply of the Airo carts, but I need a backup battery like ASAP and am wondering if I can purchase the battery and case online somewhere. Please comment back to me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So this is not the official battery, but in our experience has worked better:
Just drop the cart in WITHOUT the magnetic adapter and it should work fine. Looked around and the regular AP batteries are sold out online everywhere.
I stumbled on airopro about 2 years ago. I’ve been a consumer for a few decades of cannabis products; that being said, airopro is hands down the finest product out there. I NEVER write reviews or tote any companies flags, yet here I am. I cook with canabutter and use tinctures creating my own meals and edibles and I now leave all those at home. This product hits so well, within a few puffs you should be right as rain. It’s certainly military grade for all is veterans. Don’t wait, just get one. You won’t regret it.
Military grade! Haha that’s exactly what it is. So powerful!
Has anyone traveled from lower altitude lower sea level to a higher altitude and did they have any problems with the cartridge overflowing during transport? Or taking it up in an airplane I guess would be the same kind of thing. I’ve had previous pens and cartridges that have overflowed through the mouthpiece I think due to the altitude and I wanted to know if anyone had any advice on how to transport or what I can do maybe I need to smoke A hit on the way partway up so that I release some pressure?
Haven’t taken one in a plane but have taken them from sea level to higher mountains and never had an issue, but i do always store them upright. are they possibly upside down when you are traveling?
Hey I just purchased an AirPro and want to take it back home for medical purposes to help me sleep. Do you have any suggestions to carry the cartridges on the plane safely and discreet? Thanks so much!
We do not advise taking them on the plane, but it might be fine within a legal state like LA to SF or Las Vegas to Reno
I love my Airpro. I have bought atleast 6 and have never had an issue. 2 were gifts and they both work. One was damaged by a family member who left it in pants that went in the washing machine. That’s on us. The other three all work perfectly. I have not found a better system and am a daily user due to medical issues.
Just tried one for the first time. No clogging and the overall rating is very good. My only question. Is there any vitamin E added to the carts?
Nah doubt it, pretty sure Airo Pro is straight distillate and terps, but good question and I will ask them to be sure
I think the people adding Vitamin E are trying to use it as a “cutting agent”
They replied pretty quick. Official Airo Vapor response:
Definitely no Vitamin E or Vitamin E acetate in our products. I think this is a byproduct of people using random oils as cutting agents and should be limited to the black market products I would hope.
Thanks for checking on this!
Do the carts contain diacetyl?
Should not, check this out about the diacetyl scare:
So basically should be fine – but I think what probably happened is many street carts were still made using eCig products. For example the earliest carts were mostly with a PG/VG mix. Airo Pro now is just distillate and terps. However, I recommend their Live Flower Series if they got it in your area:
Just as strong but more of a real flower taste, uses cannabis terpenes
Their website also states they use no Vit. E/acetate and never will. Sounds pretty safe.
The dispensary I purchased mine from did not give me a case. He tried to give me an open battery box and I asked for a sealed box. The case looks amazing ????
Love love love this!!!! Amazing!! Thank you!!
I would love more info on Airopro using all organic if you can link me to it or have info. I recently got some AiroPro carts, and while I really love them and the pen, I’m hesitant to buy again because the cart packaging states the use of Azaguard and Pyrethrins as part of their pest management protocol.
What state are you in? I didn’t see this on ours but will check this out
I have had my Airopro vape for 10 months with not one issue. It still lasts FOREVER and I smoke a handful of puffs a day for my anxiety, pain, migraine/nausea, and insomnia.
Obviously, I’m a medicinal user. And that is one of the reasons I only use this vape brand.
They are very conscious of how they cultivate and make their oils, keeping everything as natural and potent as possible. They care about quality above quantity and I hope they never loose that with how big they are growing so fast! They cover their Vapes with a YEAR WARRANTY too which is unheard of, so you know they are making quality products when they back their brand like that…they also cover their cartridges for a month (with packaging) if you experience any leaking or clogging- only happened to me once and it was one of the new Caliva carts which was leaking upon opening the package.
For those who don’t know…They have AMAZING LIVE RESIN CARTs and 1:1 CBD-THC carts!
These are the carts I smoke regularly and they are amazing for all my issues listed above…and they still have up to 85% THC on some. These carts = Longer lasting, more medicinal, and a more FULL grounded high. I smoke the live flower indica and hybrid, and Buddha smile 1:1 all the time when I need some medicinal assistance.
I smoke the sugarplum nightrider-indica, Sumatra sunrise blood orange-sativa, and bubba kush- indica when I just wanna have a good time.
Before I finish, I want to mention how I respect and love the use of ALL organic botanical terps in their flavored carts….another reason I use them and why they taste bomb. ✌????
I have been using this Vape pen for almost 2 years and this last batch of oil cartridges has solidified. I am in fl so it’s not the cold. This newest batch is the first time that I’ve had an issue and I am trying to find a solution. Right now I’m not happy with the airo pro 🙁
what state are you in?
He said FLORIDA’
I’m having the very same issues that these people are, and I’m on my second battery in two weeks. Sure the store is fine about replacing them, but maybe I don’t feel like dropping by every 3-4 days to get a replacement battery. Today is April 23, I got my replacement battery on April 18, I had purchased my first battery 4 days earlier. It seems that the cartridge for this battery won’t work with any others, is this a correct assumption, from what I’m reading.
It doesn’t matter that your working on this issue, we can’t be the only 4 people that have had this issue. If you know the manufacturing code that would tell you what series of batteries are affected with this issue or just say tell stores to tell customers, if you’ve purchased a battery that is having these issues, just take it back to the store. But I’m not running back and forth every 3-4 days just to get a battery replaced, I have a better idea, why don’t you fix the problem, because once I’m gone as a customer, I won’t be back, and no customer should.
No they only work with aeropro carts UNLESS you get the adaptor part along with it, then I believe you can use 510 carts in if as well. I might be wrong but I feel like they mentioned that above? So actually they do work with other carts, with the adapter
Yes the adapter does work – if it’s the right adapter. Some seem to not work at all and it was kind of random which ones seemed to work right with the AiroPro battery, but I haven’t seen an official AiroPro adapter.
love Airo Pros flavors
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!
how much for the adapter?
A medium size one seems to work, but I have noticed they can be picky, some seem to work, some do not
the original PCKT One middle size adapter worked well
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!
I agree, this ubit is far better than others on the market. I have had no problems with it other than the cartridge’s are a bit more pricey
What’s the price difference on Airo Pro vs other carts where you are?
yeah man, battery sucks 2nd batter and only on my third cartridge so far, wahatsup with Airopro? sounds like a defective product
Make sure to contact their support they will replace it
However we found this to be the UWOW Storm to be the best battery:
https://www.cityofvape.com/uwow-storm-mod/ Prices might change but that’s the cheapest I could find for now at $15.99
This thing hits the AiroPro carts harder too. Going to update the review to include this information.
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 email@example.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.
