Problem: I just received my cartomizer. I just filled it up, but now when I try to take a hit and fire the battery, I get no suction, and then all of a sudden I’ll get a surge and liquid will pop into my mouth! After that happened, I take a puff, and it goes from being completely clogged to giving little gurgles and I am getting little, if any vapor out of it. What’s going on?
Answer: What happened in this case is the cartomizer was overfilled, and the excess liquid is preventing it from functioning properly. Take the cartomizer off of the battery, and take a napkin/tissue and use your pinky finger to poke into the battery connection area of the cartomizer and dab the area. You will see when you take your pinky out that there will be liquid saturating the napkin. Use a dry part of the napkin, and with your pinky repeat the process. Do this until you see no more liquid on the napkin when you try to wipe it. Also you should clean the battery connection plate/center-pin of your battery with a q-tip, to wipe off extra juice. Now simply try to inhale through the cartomizer and check to see see if you receive a clear hit, without it being connected to the battery. If there is still an obstruction, then put the napkin on the end of the cartomizer, and gently blow through the cartomizer, and repeat the cleaning process. Repeat these instructions until you can get a clean, clear hit through your cartomizer.
