Cerabis Ceramic Tank by Ceravape

Ceravape Cerabis Ceramic Tank

This isn’t the first time we’ve reviewed a ceramic tank from Ceravape. Ceravape designed, built, and released ceramic tanks long before ceramic tanks were cool, but because these previous tanks were MTL (Mouth to Lung) tanks, no one here liked them very much. Perhaps that’s the reason we are so incredibly impressed with the new CERABIS ceramic tank. Everything we didn’t like about Ceravape’s earlier ceramic tanks has been replaced with everything we do like about ceramic tanks. The Cerabis is downright remarkable.

Ceravape has been at the forefront of ceramic vaping technology far longer than the big boys. Though the company, it seems, hasn’t been huge fans of big clouds of vapor or using a DL (Direct Lung) style of vaping. Things change, and finally Ceravape has designed and built a tank our entire staff can get behind.

The CERABIS is available in Black and Stainless Steel colors for right around $40. We received both colors, and for this review I chose the black one. After the review period was over I kept using the Cerabis as my primary tank, though not my exclusive tank. I’ll tell you why near the end of this review.

Cerabis Ceramic Tank BY CERAVAPEThe Cerabis is a CERAMIC coil tank with a 4mL e liquid capacity, a top-fill system, and variable air-flow. It features leak proof and dry-hit protection, and is constructed with stainless steel and high-strength Nanometer ceramics. The Cerabis tank is also self-cleaning, which I’ll talk more about in the Real World Usage below.

The Ceravape Cerabis Ceramic Tank (say that 3 times fast) is first and foremost a ‘Flavor Tank’. After a small period of break-in this ceramic coil system will provide the vaper with a clean, authentic, flavor from any e liquid in any PG/VG ratio. During the review period I used half a dozen e liquids, from 50:50, 70:30, and MaxVG, and they all performed excellently. However, just because the Cerabis is a flavor tank, don’t assume the clouds are few and far between. Using a MaxVG e liquid at 40-50 watts with the 0.8-Ohm Kanthal coil head, the Cerabis provides more than enough clouds of vapor. With its 0.4-ohm Kanthal coil head you can go even higher, to 50-60 watts and enjoy somewhat bigger clouds. I prefer the 0.8 coil head because e juice consumption is considerably less, and battery life is slightly longer.

Let’s Talk Ceramic Coils

The Ceravape Cerabis is a pure ceramic tank. The food grade ceramic coil system uses zero cotton, which is why self-cleaning is so effective and the lifespan of the coil head is months instead of days.

The Cerabis Sub Ohm Tank use a vertical ceramic build as its wicking material, made with food grade ceramic material. The Cerabis Ceramic Tank BY CERAVAPEcoil material begins as a powder and is then heated to 2300 degrees Fahrenheit (1260 degrees Celsius), which turns this high grade ceramic powder into a solid, yet porous ceramic heating element. This process is called “sintering”, and it makes the ceramic coil a much healthier coil over cotton wicking that is so prevalent in many coil heads now. A high grade ceramic wick will not throw off glass fibers or cotton particles while vaping with it, resulting in a better tasting, and purer vape experience. Naturally, if the user isn’t breathing in foreign matter being thrown off by the high heat it is a healthier way to vape, especially for those of us that enjoy Direct Lung vaping.  Like all other tanks, ceramics and cotton, drip a few drops of e juice directly into the coil.

Note* The melting point of ceramic wicks is higher than glass fiber and cotton wicks, making it much harder to create a burnt taste. It can happen, but it is difficult.

Cerabis Operation

Cerabis Ceramic Tank BY CERAVAPEWhat truly makes this ceramic tank unique is the use of a Push-Pull telescoping system. Simply put, when the Cerabis is in the extended position the glass chamber is visible and the tank is ready for use. When the glass chamber is hidden, by pushing down on the exterior of the tank, everything gets shut down. The e liquid flow ports, the airflow system, it’s all closed off, thus no leaking.

To fill the tank, it must be in this shut down position. Then, unscrewing the top cap will reveal large fill slots on either side. Fill the tank to just under the top, screw on the top cap, and pull up on the tank to reveal the glass chamber. When the tank is pulled up the airflow opens, as does the eliquid ports. Allow a few minutes to saturate the porous ceramic heating element and vape.

The Ramp Up time is not instant, no matter what you might have read or heard, but it’s not the worst I’ve seen by far. As with most ceramic tanks, save for the Horizon Krixus and its Tungsten heating element, ramp up speed is not as fast as wire/cotton coils. I’ve made it a habit to press the fire button for roughly a second before inhaling and it works just fine.

Coil Replacement

Despite the long life of the ceramic coil and the numerous times the user can dry burn the coil to clean it, there will come a time that replacing the long coil head has to be done.

In order to replace the coil, the user unscrews the base of the tank while the Cerabis is in its “Vape On” position (tank is extendedCerabis Ceramic Tank BY CERAVAPE to reveal the glass chamber) Once the user removes the base, the users pushes down the tank to close it and that movement pushes the coil head out, or dislodges the coil head. With a straight and steady pull by the user the coil head can be safely removed completely. Once out, the user pulls the tank up again to reveal the glass chamber, then places a new coil head in, screwing it to the base, then push down again to close the tank again and fill with e juice. Trust me, it sounds more complicated than it is.

Real World Usage

When I first laid my eyes on the Cerabis I was struck by its elegant beauty. The black color is a deep, opaque, black as night. It’s rich, luxurious color with gold letters and logo imprinted on the upper body of the tank. The wide bore Drip Tip is extremely heat proof, and its material is comfortable to use.

Cerabis Ceramic Tank BY CERAVAPECleaning the ceramic coil not only extends the life of the coil, but it allows the user to change e liquid flavors without having to replace the coil. Once cleaned there is no residue of flavor from the previous e juice. Note* Removing the coil head for the first time requires a lot of strength. So much so that I had to refer to the manual more than once because I was sure the coil head didn’t come out and there was another way to replace the inner ceramic core. But, with effort, it came off, and when I remove and replace now I screw it in hand-tight, and no more.

Cleaning the ceramic coil is done by using the Dry Burn method. I like to use 20-25 watts to clean my ceramic coils, but you can go as high as 30w. Set the device to 20 or 25 watts with the Cerabis in the extended (open) position and hold the fire button down for 2-3 seconds. Repeat 3 or 4 times to make sure all the remnants of the previous juice, and any residue that may have formed, is gone. Then let the tank rest a few minutes, refill, and go. As I said earlier, I used 6 different e liquids and cleaned the coil in this way each time. I never tasted the previous flavor in any of the changes. Alternatively, if for whatever reason, dry burning the coil to clean it isn’t something the user is comfortable with, the coil head can be run under cool water for about 30 seconds. Either way is fine, but I prefer to dry burn the coil.

During the entire review period, and after, I have experienced zero gurgling and not a hint of spitback. Vaping between 40-45Cerabis Ceramic Tank BY CERAVAPE watts was plenty with the 0.8-ohm coil head. Flavor was always stupendous, and vapor production was more than adequate.

To discover the real flavor properties of the ceramic coil head I used a favorite e liquid flavor in the Cerabis and two other tanks I use all the time, the Uwell Rafale, and the Crown. The flavor authenticity from the Cerabis was every bit as good as the others.

E Liquid Consumption was surprising. I’m used to vaping my way through almost 30mL a day, especially with Max VG juice, high wattage, and low resistance. The Ceravape Cerabis tank is very conservative about consuming e juice, a major plus for vapers looking to get more vape time with a bottle of e juice. Battery life is a little better, but because I was using my device at 40-45 watts, the extra life was maybe 5-10% longer.

Conclusion

Cerabis Ceramic Tank BY CERAVAPECERAVAPE CERABIS Tank is, in my opinion, one of the best sub-ohm ceramic tanks produced so far this year, and certainly one of the most unique. Unfortunately, you can expect to pay $35-$40 for one, but in my opinion it’s worth the price. Anytime you can vape without switching out a coil for a month or more the tank pays for itself in no time. I guess the reason I still use this tank a lot is because when it comes down it, flavor is vital for a great vape experience. The Cerabis provides me with all the flavor I want, and produces more than enough vapor to satisfy.

Because of the Push-Pull method of filling and refilling, I might not recommend the Ceravape Cerabis to new vapers just getting into the bigger devices and tanks. Perhaps a month or two after getting into the larger equipment it would make sense, but just starting out it might be just a little intimidating. Otherwise, if you’re looking for a Flavor Tank that provides ample vapor at the same time, the Cerabis is definitely a contender.

  1. I read the your last review on this and am very interested, more so now that it’s improved! You guys do such a great job with your reviews…thank You!

  2. Thank you for this review, I’ve been putting off buying into the ceramic coil simply because most new vaping concepts need some version improvements to get the kinks worked out but it looks like some time went into the design of this one. I especially like the pop up idea and the ease with which you can dry burn and switch flavors. Being a flavor whore I’ve found that I now have setups for each profile and this tank would solve some space issues.

  3. This tank looks/sounds amazing. I’m so intrigued by everything vape becoming ceramic. Unfortunately I’m still using my Kangertech Subox Nano kit which was my 3rd ever vaping device although I plan and want to substantially upgrade in the very near future as I’m so much more into baking than I was 2 months ago when purchasing the nano and when my finances permit me to do that ceramic is def the way I wanna go. This tank is def on my list 😉

  4. I like the looks of this tank. I really like the push-pull method of refilling. I have not yet tried a ceramic coil but this might be the one to buy.

  5. I have been trying the SIMBA tan and am not real impressed with the vape on their ceramic coil (although others have been, possible dud coil). From reading your review, this sounds lie a tan with a better design, and better coil. I will look for it.

  6. Wow that’s such a sexy tank. I’m really enticed by ceramics making their way into vape products. It was only a few months ago when I first read about one, and now, just a short time later, there’s options to choose from and refinements being made to it (such as with this product). The coil swapping procedure does sound a bit awkward though, maybe a video tutorial showing it in action would be appropriate? Also love the new look around here. Very clean.

  7. I have not tried a ceramic tank yet. Seems like so many new vape gadgets are coming out on a daily basis that truthfully I don’t pay attention to most of them. This one caught my eye when I saw words like ,” self- cleaning” and “coil can last month” and the fact that I can change eliquids as often as I like without having to change coils. I love to change up my eliquids probably more often than most people and I dont normally change coils each time.Not ever actually. So I have to deal with tasting some God awful mixtures. (Some things just should never be mixed!) I am much more interested in the flavor of an e-liquid as opposed to vapor. I am definately going to look into this one. The price looks great to me, especially if I will be saving money on all these coils! Looking forward to it

  8. I am totally a flavor girl…..and alas, I am still dripping. I have bought many subtanks, pretty much as they came out- Kanger- Atlantis- Horizon- Arctic- I lost track…..and I just can’t pull the trigger. They all fall short. I last tried the TVF4 which failed me — leaked like crazy and flavor wasn’t dripper-equal to me. So now, the next on the list are the DOTCOM2 and the Tsunami. BUT, I have wanted to try ceramic, and haven’t. Maybe I should try the CERABIS first? Any other recommendations? Rafale is also on my list…..I switch juice every 5 minutes ( I have over 5,000 btls)….so tanks aren’t necessarily practical. BUT I do love like 5 flavors constantly, so I would keep 5 tanked, so they do make sense to me. HELP!

    1. Lori, I have the Tsunami, it is a totally sick dripper, the velocity style build deck is a definite plus, very easy to build on, once I had watched a youtube on how to coil this type of RDA. Once I saw that 1 leg goes into top slot, one wire goes into bottom slot, make sure all is in alignment tighten, turn aroud do the other side you are good to go! If I had one gripe about the Tsunami it would be thus; building is easy wicking a snap, but once you have your cotton in, unless you are building small coils like 2 mm and under there isn’t much space to insert the wick. I had to go to a 2 mm coil and that works it doesn’t take much to wick it and then turn the ends under and into the juice well. I like to saturate my wick & coils makes it easier on me, this is definitely a full flavor RDA as the flavor at least in my experience with this RDA has been nothing short of totally EFFING awesome! This RDA also has some incredible air flow, massive amounts of air if you want it.
      Another great RBTA is the Vaporesso Gemini, very very flavor based for me any way tank. Again, it has the velocity style deck so its super easy to build on. It does have a very nice sized base in which to build on. Her I could do my usual dual 2.5 mm coils coming in around .45-.5 ohms GREAT flavor has a decent size tank, 4 ml I believe it is. S her is just my take on 2 very nice very easy to buid on and some outstanding flavor. Have a great weekend, be well, stay safe, God bless, and….VAPE ON!

  9. Really interested in the push-pull system, and I have one other ceramic tank (Dolphin) that I like. But how available are replacement coils? I’m a bit leery of tanks from companies I haven’t heard of before.

  10. Great review. This absolutely sounds like the tank I’ll be buying once I upgrade to a better mod. Thanks again!

  11. Got me on the self cleaning. Would really like to try this. So many new things out there and your reviews help a lot weeding out the hood from the garbage.. Well not garbage just not what I want or need.

  12. I like the looks of this tank and the push-pull design. The self-cleaning is also very attractive as far as costs go. Maybe this will be the ceramic tank to try.

  13. This tank has a lot of pluses going for it. The biggest minus is I’d rather build than buy coils. I’d be interested in knowing how long a coil actually lasts. I’ll have to find out from someone I know that actually gets one because most reviewers test something & move on.

  14. Well, it sounds like the Cerabis tank is the first real ceramic tank that is consumer useable. I figured the ceramic would take a second to warm up but, like you said, no big deal. My biggest attraction to the idea of a ceramic tank has always been the coil longevity/price point. A coil that lasts months, delivering an accurate flavor profile is highly desirable. I did not, however, catch the cost of a new coil for the tank. I hope Ceravape continues its research and brings us more tanks.

  15. I have the Zephyr 2, Krixus, Scylla and Phoenix. I definitely like the flavors from ceramic. I did try the Atom Vapes coils in a Crown but was really disappointed. All of my favorite juices took on a licorice flavor no matter the wattage. I have two of the Cerabis on order and should see them in a couple of days. By your review, I’m really looking forward to the test. The Team does an excellent job of straight forward reporting, thank you.

  16. I do believe that ceramics is the future of vaping. Would love to try this one out to determine how ar we’ve come.

  17. really want to try a ceramic ..i hear the flavor is out of this world,,and that they last for a long time

  18. It seems like a great idea, it really does, but powder solidifying into hardened metal seems…. frightening somehow. I have been very cautious with different metals as nickel caused hives on me everywhere (allergic to nickel). After finding SS, I don’t think I could change heating elements, but maybe in time I could try ceramic. I love your reviews, so thorough and honest. Keep up the good work Spin-F Team!

  19. Thank you for such an in-depth and informative review! So well done, as always- I love to read Spinfuel reviews.

    I work for Cera Vape, and run the online store the best I can from the U.S., and I also handle any concerns from customers (Ben@ceravape.com).
    I’d like to add a few points:
    -The coils are only rated for 1 month of average use, although if used responsibly, I’m sure more use can be had.
    -There is no need to drip any juice into the head to prime it- just close off the AFC (air flow control) and take a few pulls without firing the device- or you could even open/close/”pump” the AFC/JFC (/juice flow control) a few times to get the juice flowing.
    -My experience with the ramp up is that it’s pretty quick- I would imagine it will vary with the device used to power it- I get the crackle right after I hit the button (45 watts/0.9O coil/RX200), and I don’t have to wait.
    -To easily remove the coil, just screw the base back on a half turn, and the coil will pull free attached to the base
    -It’s pretty cool that the reviewer didn’t need to remove the coil to dry burn- I would suggest dry burning with the coil on the base and blowing on the coil head to free up the burned off gunk, then washing with warm water to make sure no ash from the burned gunk remains.

    (If this is bad etiquette, please disregard/delete)
    The Cerabis and coil heads are now in stock (at the time of typing this,the site needs to be updated, as I just received the shipment an hour ago):

  20. I think ceramic tanks are the ones that everyone going to be getting.This tank sounds and looks like the best one out.
    Looking forward to getting one for myself.

  21. I’ve enjoyed the many reviews of the new tanks using ceramic coils. The idea of a long lasting, clean tasting coil is very enticing. As my collection of more standard subohm tanks start to need replacement I’m convinced ceramic is the way to go. The push-pull on-off feature and the looks of this tank are great.
    I’ll keep following your excellent reviews so I’ll be up to date when I start making the shift to ceramics.
    Thanks Spinfuel!

  22. Thanks Again for another great review. I just ordered 2 Cerabis tanks, and cannot wait to try them. Thanks again. Mark
