Is the CCell Rizo worth it?
I recently got the chance to try the new CCell Rizo 510 thread battery and let me just start by saying, it’s definitely unique.
This CCell battery is sleek and draw-activated, but its lower voltages and haptic feedback during every draw make it more of a niche vape battery that I think only certain people will like.
Let me explain.

CCell Rizo Build Quality
The build quality of the Rizo battery is top-notch, as it feels sturdy and durable in hand, and I appreciate the minimalist design and kit that includes two 510 Magnetic Adapters.
Underneath a small rubber flap is the USB-C charging port, as well as a voltage dial that will let you choose between Low and High (2.8V and 3.3V), which is a nice feature for a draw-activated battery. On the downside, the rubber flap on the bottom of the Rizo means that it won’t be able to stand upright.
These voltages are somewhat similar, and the only difference I found was the higher voltage was a bit harsher on the throat. I found the main difference to be the heat-up time of the cartridge, as you’ll need to inhale longer on the low voltage to get it going.
Okay, here’s where it gets a bit weird.
You have to inhale very hard for the draw-activation to work on the Rizo.
And when you do get the wick working as indicated by the white light, the Rizo has haptic feedback the whole time that you’re inhaling.
Overall, I would compare the experience to blowing a balloon up and getting red in the face. It’s pretty ridiculous.
When you do manage to get your cartridge to work, because you’ve been inhaling so hard, your clouds are going to be massive even if you haven’t inhaled for too long.
- For a more normal experience, I would suggest the Dr. Dabber Universal Battery as an easier button 510 battery.
CCell Rizo Battery Life
The battery life of the CCell Rizo is solid, coming in at 300mAh, which is a bit more than you’ll find on an entry-level 510 battery.
The USB-C charging cable is pretty short, but it will bring the device back to full within an hour. One thing I can’t help but think is that it could have gotten more battery life if it didn’t have the goofy haptic feedback throughout your inhales. Who thought that was a good idea?
- Voltage Control
- USB-C Charging
- Vibrates your whole hit
- Doesn’t stand upright
- Expensive for what it is
Overall, I like the design of the CCell Rizo 510 thread battery.
It’s sleek and feels great in the hand, but the weird performance means I wouldn’t recommend it to most people, especially for its $35 price tag.
