Take used wick/base, remove the stem. You will see a small 'secondary' wick laying on top of the main wick/coil. Remove that.
You will see a very charred section of the wick.
Rinse in hot water. Lightly brush with old tooth brush.
Allow to dry completely.

*This is the weird part*
Put wick/base without the stem or tank back on your battery.
Energize. It will start to smoke. Soon (3-4 seconds you will see the coil start to glow red).
Allow it to get completely red across the coil. De-energize
Let it cool for a couple minutes.
Lightly brush soot off.
Wala.. Almost new looking wick.

Put a small piece of "secondary" wick back on top of main/coil. *a bag of wick is available at my vape store for .75 cents.*
Put stem back on and set in place.
This makes it work as good as a new wick.
vodka works great for doing this too. i've done it a few times but just buy a new pack now.
are you using the right size atomizers? i was going through atomizers every 3 days when i had a evod tank, pissed me off. never could find out what was wrong so i bought a mini davide and love it. better flavor, vape, glass tank, just awesome and i use 1 atomizer every week & half. pack of 5 atomizers cost $12 locally

We have now successfully transitioned to e-cig only. Lungs have started that quit smoking clean out already. So nasty but feel so much better.

Finally got some rebuildables (t3S). Much better than the vapow cartomizers or Joye atomizers I was using.

I just ordered 2 900mah Joye ego T batteries, 4 vision ego clear-o-mizers, and 6 6ml bottles of various juice. Ordered Friday should be here by Wednesday.

Let the smoking stop.

I started smoking when I was 13ish.. Marlboro lights, then Reds, then Camel Wides, the Kamel Reds, then Camel Turkish Royals... 1ish+ packs a days, and I'm 31.
I tried their equivalent to Camels... it sucked. Then I tried Red Bull Flavor, then they switched companies. The new company sucked. After trying a multitude of different ones, I now vape with Mango... But it's growing boring, so I may switch to something different in the future.

So in short.. Experiment. Find what you like. A friend of mine smoked Marlboro lights. He got their equivalent, and loves it. It's all personal preference.

Mini davide or pro tank 3, awesome tanks. I only use joyetech batteries, they work as they should and last a long time. My batteries are going on 8 months with no problems

Are there any starter kits for these awesome atomizers you guys use? The batteries on my Blu E-Cig are really starting to piss me off.

Google ego starter kit, tons of options. My everyday setup is a joyetech ego-c 1000 battery and mini davide tank. After trying around 15 different tanks, this one rocks. Alot of people like pro tanks, either one works good. I have a bunch of tanks i never use anymore. I even have a new evod setup but my davide tank is better hands down.
Im down to 18mg nic, 36mg is what i vaped for 6 months

I use ego t and the t3s.
I'm not nice to my stuff and have gone through like 4 batteries, but they're not super expensive.
The Davide looks almost like a t3s.


I just found a "mini" t3. Might have to try one.

I use an Ego-Ctwist with a T3 3ml tank. Watch your oms rating on the T3 wicks. They are not all created equal. I had a 1.5 and was burning them up like crazy. Switched to a 2.5 and they have been lasting MUCH longer.

As for staters kits, the local stores seem to want to start everybody out with carts. Look at what they are all running. Tell em' to skip the BS and run what they run. The work there, they aren't going to run shit.

I have 1.8 ohm now, figured it would be fine with VG juice and 3.7v.
Seems ok so far.
I have 2.2 ohm replacement coils to try out too.

With the law of ohms wouldn't you want higher than 3.7v for 2.2 ohms?
