On cartomizers, bottom feeders and juice samplers ... and what will be in the year 2000

So I troll the forums on the lookout. I know its coming. I have seen and heard of modders such as raidy from germany doing it. A reliable TRUE self juicing e-cig.
A cartomizer is as close as it comes to that. I can fill my C-E2 R4 cartos with nearly 2 ml of juice and vape it all day just about. But it has some wicking issues as it goes against gravity and wicks UP to a atomizer coil that sits nearer the mouthpiece than say, a Joye carto. So about half the time you have to tilt it slightly to help the wicking process. And...you are limited to 2 ml.
The bottom feeding mods such as the REO, Ali'i, Wetbox and others require you to squeeze a 3ml or maybe 6 ml, bottle. Now that bottle may be stiff and you might squeeze too hard to compensate but like, as they all say..."You'll get a feel for it". Even so you still are looking over your shoulder for the dry-hit even though I am sure as you get accustomed to it you will learn to stay ahead of it. Its maybe a good intermediate step but its a stopgap for what is envitable.
I'll just refer you over to a thread in the modders' forum started by a German guy name of raidy. Look it up. I don't have a link here cus I am afraid to leave the blog post right now but maybe edit this later with the actual link. You have to see what this guy is doing. The stuff he has created could be likened to a Mercedes compared to our Ford Pinto experiences.
Once that's all sorted out the next big challenge is getting juice vendors to provide all of their juices in sampler packs of 3ml. I know it can be tough on a juice vendor to individually package 3ml bottles in an on-demand ordering environment but like, those who do and do it cheerfully will be greatly rewarded. I mean, wow, I am sitting at a desk right now with 20 bottles of stuffs (with about 10 more bottles of stuffs coming) and can count on one hand the keepers (and that may be being generous). The rest will either be donated or sold at fire sale. Its not that its bad juice as much as it might just not agree with me.
