Cartridge - These are plastic mouth pieces which contain a little pillow of Polyfill that holds the liquid flavor (e-juice) most folks just call em' "carts" They come in round tips and tapered tips.
Cartomizers - These are cartridges that are disposable with a built in atomizer, they are available either prefilled or blank. You can refill them several times but once you taste a slight burnt flavor or the vapor production becomes less it's time to pitch them. They can be refilled either by removing the mouthpiece cap or simply dripping the e liquid directly into the hole where the battery connection is. Keep them moist with eliquid for best performance and longer life.
Be sure to wipe any excess eliquid before re-attaching to your battery.
CE or Ceramic Inside Cartomizers - These are Vapor and Flavor monsters. There are wicks and a ceramic coil inside rather than wadding or polyfil. The CE Cartomizers must be filled using a shart syringe. The CE carto's offer the user a much purer flavor and better vapor.
CE Dual Coil Cartomizers - Same as above (Better) but with 2 coils of different ohm ratings (usually 1.5+0,2ohm) which give the user even more vapor and a bigger throat hit. If you want more vapor, more true flavor and crave that big tasty smooth throat hit then the CE Dual Coil Cartomizer are it! Must be filled using a syringe. Simply fill your syringe remove the CE mouthpiece and insert the syringe by piercing the silicone ring against the wall of the cartomizer. Allow to sit for a few minutes for those fat wicks to absorb the liquid and do their magic. Always fill cartomizers while removed from your battery and be sure to wipe all connections dry.
Always allow your CE Cartomizer to sit and absorb for a few minutes. A burnt flavor is almost always user error. The wick must be allowed to be thoroughly saturated so it does not get burnt from the coils. This is also true for all Cartomizers with wadding/polyfil in them as well. Keep them moist, Too little e liquid = Burnt flavor
E-liquid - E Juice or Juice - This is the liquid which fuels your electronic cigarette it's what gets turned into vapor. You can buy ejuice in various strengths of nicotine from 0 to 36 mg and refill your cartridges with it. Aside from typical flavors e- juice comes in more flavors than Baskin Robbins and may or may not contain Nicotine at your request. Keep your cartridges moist with e juice and add a drop or two to your atomizer for best results. Too much e juice/e liquid in your atomizer may result in leakage between the atomizer and battery, just unsrew them and wipe off, it shouldn't harm your e cig unless it is seriously flooded.
E juice can be used in all two piece and all three piece electronic cigarettes
Analogs - The term we vapors use for traditional tobacco cigarettes.
PCC-Portable Charging Case . This is a flip top box shaped device which allows you to charge your e-cigarette batteries while on the run. Some E-cig portable charger cases like our Mystic box will allow you to re-charge your e cig battery up to six or seven times before the case itself needs to be re-charged. The PCC is normally charged through a USB port from your computer or other usb port device. AC/USB port adapters are available for when a USB port alone is not available.
USB Charger- This is a charger that you can plug into any computer USB port and charge up your e-cigarette. Available for most models.
PG- Propylene Glycol. Is a "wetting agent" cleared as safe for human consumption and used in many of the foods we eat, cosmetics we use and medicine we take. It's the flavorless base of e juice. PG tends to give the e cig user a better throat than VG, but this can vary with each user. Both are great flavor bases.
Vaping- The term we use instead of smoking.
PV-Personal Vaporizer, Higher Voltage Units - sometimes called "mods" are another kind of e-cigarette. They're prized for their unique and often quite beautiful designs - and for producing huge plumes of vapor. A great addition to any e cig collection but not usually recommended as a first e cig choice, they are somewhat larger than a regular e cigarette and are a bit cumbersome to carry around with you, they are best left at home to enjoy. You also risk damage to the units by carrying them around in your pocket or purse, which is not covered under our return policy.
Make sure your battery has a good charge. Check and make certain your cartridge is moist with e juice. Try dripping a couple drops of e juice around the atomizer bowl. Or try a new cartridge. Check all fittings and make sure they're snug. If your E cig is new allow a couple of days of use for your atomizer to fully break in and then you'll see a more consistant amount of vapor. If your battery is charged and theres still no vapor your Atomizer may have reached the end of it's life...(R.I.P.)
Let your e cig rest between draws, if your atomizer is too hot from constant continual vaping the unit will not produce a good vapor.
Particularly with the DSE905 if your atomizer is very hot from taking big long hits, it may shut down and not light up when the button is depressed. So give it a rest between drags, puffs, hits, draws, pulls etc and let it cool a minute. And draw gently with e cigs. Keep the cartridge very moist and a couple drops down into the atomizer.
Check to see if your cartridge is dry (not enough e-liquid) and that your battery is sufficiently charged. These are common reasons for weak vapor producion. Try dripping a few drops of e juice onto your atomizer. Allow a few hours of usage for your atomizer to break in. Keep the Cartridge and Atomizer moist....can't stress this enough. E Cigarettes do not draw like a regular cigarette, you must take long slow gentle draws to achieve the best vapor. Not short hard draws.
Atomizers need to be replaced and usually have a lifespan of 14 days. This can be more or less in some instances. It is not unusual for an atomizer to burn out in a week.
A right of passage into the world of vaping!
This can happen when the cartridge has been overfilled. Remember, your filled cart should like a "slushie" it should never have a pool of ejuce floating on top. If it does just shake a little out.
Unfortunately, not all are, other than the cartridges for the DSE901, DSE 905 and the Joye 510 and ECIS 510, Atomizers, Cartridges and Batteries for the DSE 801 and the Joye/JKY 302 are interchageable. Atomizers and Pass Through devices for the DSE 905 and DSE 901 Are Interchangeable.
That's why we try to stick with the one OEM supplier who invented the e cig. Always be sure you buy the correct replacement atomizers, batteries, and cartridges for the model e cig you have. As always we're here to help.
How long can I expect a pre filled cartridge to last?
How long does an Atomizer last?
Typically an atomizer should last approximately 2 to 3 weeks, but depending on usage and care they can go in a few days. Our attys are all Premium meaning they have a ceramic "bowl" and a solid brass heating coil. If you're a light to moderate user expect a life span of about 3 weeks. So be sure to try an replace your atomizer every few weeks or more for best performance from your e-cigarette.
How do I clean my Atomizer?
The Best Method for cleaning your E cig Atomizer is by boiling them in water for several minutes and them allowing them to dry at least overnight, be sure to blow them out very well also after it is dry. Then add a couple drops of E Juice to the Atomizer Wick (that fuzzy little metal loop on or down in your atomizer sleeve) This process should give you a bit more life out of your Atty, unless it is totally shot.
My E cigs makes a poping gurgling sound when I draw on it.
Perfectly normal with a freshly juice cartridge and a full battery. It just the atomizer heating up the e liquid, sort of like a boiling pot of water making a poping crackling sound. (I hope that makes sense)
This can be caused by a couple of things. It is usually either not enough E Juice in the cartridge so you are 'vaping dry', or it can be a small thread of metal sticking out from the atomizer bridge and catching on the polyfill.
Chargers come with an LED, whether they are Wall chargers or USB Port chargers. The LED is usually red when you place a low battery into it, and will change color when the battery is fully charged (usually green, but can also be blue).
How Long Should I Charge My Battery?
For the initial charge always charge your e cig battery for at least 8 to 10 hours. Then use it for approximately 20 minutes and then put it back on the charger for another hour to condition it.
There is NO NEED to fully drain an E cig battery before recharging it. It is actually better to top off the charge before it completely discharges. And Do Not Over Tighten Batteries Into The Charger Or Atomizers. Be Gentle with your e cig.
Your e-cigarette may have a manual supplied with it. For the majority of models, a first time charge of 8 hours is recommended. After that most e-cigarettes take between one and three hours to fully charge again. It may take slightly longer if charging through a USB Port charger. See Above - How Long Should I Charge My E Cig Battery. With the larger mAh E cig batteries charge times will be much longer
The Mystic Box typically takes 5 or 6 hours but will keep your batteries charged for a whopping 45 - 60 hours. No need for a wall outlet you can charge 510 batterieson the move several times before the Mystic Box itself needs recharging. Each 510 battery charge will take roughly 1 - 2 hours After the initial 8 hour charge.
This is a personal preference depending on the type of stinky analog cigarette you were using, the liquid nicotine strengths range from Zero, Low, Medium, High,(Very High 36mg not recommended)
ECigsEJuice.com e-liquid ranges from 18mg, 24mg,26mg Low, Med, High.
How much e-juice am I likely to use a day? A Week? A Month?
Depending on how much you use your ecig is the key here, but we would say a pack a day smoker would use anywhere from 20 to 50 drops per day. Or a 15 to 20ml bottle of ejuice per week. On the average most e juice users will go through about 60ml of e juice per month.
Manual button batteries should not be carried around in your pocket as the button may be depressed and drain your charge, also there is the risk of the button coming off if you place it in your pants pocket.This will Void any warranty. As will over tightening batteries into the chargers and on to the atomizers. A carrying case is recommended for transporting your e cig in your pocket or purse.
