Rincoe Ceto SE AIO Pod Kit Review
Greetings, vaper. We’re back with another vape review. Today we’re looking at a strangely shaped pod system. It’s the sequel to the Rincoe Ceto Pod System. Let’s be honest, this looks ugly from the start; but I won’t get ahead of myself here. This is a popular, super cheap system that is selling like crazy and there must be a reason for that. Who am I to judge? Hell, I may even like it.
I will open the box and review this product for you. You’ll hear my thoughts, concerns, complaints, blasphemy, etc. I will be as honest as possible about what it can and cannot do. I will also consult the reviews from other experts and gather the comments in a pros and cons list for your consumption. This way, you can tell if its worth it or not from a quick glance.
Regardless, I will take this for a spin and give you my thoughts. But first, let’s take a looksie at the specs & features:

Review & Final Thoughts:
Let’s rip this up. First thing I notice: no extra pod. Boo! I hate this, already. Why? Answer this, Rincoe. Why? Moving on. The packaging is typical and almost bad. It feels like I’m unwrapping a kitchen appliance. That being said, the device fits well in the palm of my hand, feels ergonomic, and the construction feels plasticky but the sturdy kind of plasticky. I am still not a fan of the pod shape. I’ve also read about the 650mAh battery, and, let’s face it, 650mAh won’t last that long. Maybe just long enough to review this damn thing.
When comparing the OG Rincoe Ceto and the Ceto SE, they almost seem like they’re from different brands. They share no resemblance whatsoever.I’m filling this up with tasty Beard Vape No. 32, for some of that cinnamon flavor I prefer. The pod features a magnetic snap-in connection that means just that: you snap it in. It’s okay, nothing to rave and rage about. The pod itself holds 2mL, which is not unusual for something like this. It’s actually bigger than I expected. 1.3ohm coils hold promises of tasty MTL vapor, but I haven’t gotten there.
It’s still priming, and while it does that, let’s remember this device boasts several protections: low voltage, charging, short circuit, and a 10-second cutoff. Pretty standard for a pod kit like this, as well, but it’s good that it offers all that. Now, coil primed and ready to dance, let’s take a draw. The flavor comes out good and rich. Reviewer Vaping with Vic recommends juices with VG lower than 80% and I most definitely concur. The pull is pleasant and the airflow as well. The battery is actually surviving my non stop vaping. I’m impressed.
Let’s look at the pros and cons. First off, the lack of a spare pod is always going to be a con. Nobody likes to receive just one. Get it together, Rincoe. The design quality was praised by some but dissed by others. Some said it looks like a marker, others that it is ergonomic and resembles sports car quality. On the positive side of things, this is touted as user friendly and ideal for those who prefer pod systems or in the process of switching from cigarettes. I can see why. The form factor definitely fits that mold.
Overall, this received contradicting complaints and compliments. What is the final verdict? I guess it depends. For myself, it is not the best pod system out there. It forces you to place the pod in the same angle, and to only draw by pressing the button. Usually, pod systems offer more flexibility. I would recommend this product if it were $10 or less. But for $19.99? I’d recommend looking elsewhere.
