    Default What does "punching" a cartomizer mean?

    So I got some 510 XXL BOGE Cartomizers in the mail at long last..

    These things kinda deceived me. I popped it open and its a wee cotton-looking tube on the inside with a black hook in it.

    Directions said to just put e-liquid straight on to it. I loaded up my syringe with my favorite "Dragon's Fire" e-lquid and filled her up til she was saturated.

    Let it sit for about 3-4 minutes and then put it on my EGO-T battery.

    Pressed the button. Very little smoke. Gross carbon burn-off taste. So I started reading around on the forums and it seems like people do something called 'punching'.

    Now these BOGE cartomizers haven't groped my lady nor have they insulted my grandma so I'm not gonna ball up my fist and punch the li'l guys .. so the only thing I can guess is that it means to actually punch a hole in one.

    Can someone give me some guidance?

    Punching is putting holes or slots in the side of the carto, so it can be fed juice from a carto tank. They can be purchased pre-punched, but most people either by a carto punch or similar to punch their carto or use something like a dremmel to cut slots into the side.

    Yes, it means to punch a hole, or more than one, in the steel body of the carto when using them in a tank. The juice can then flow into the carto from the tank.

    as far as your lack of vapor (not smoke) what ohm carto did you get, and what was the pg/vg ratio of the juice? and have you been drinking enough water as that will also effect your vape

    Ok, so I don't need to punch them if I'm not using a "tank". I don't get why it tastes absolutely disgusting though.

    These are what I ordered, as Low Resistance:

    After filling which it sounds like You did correctly, You may want to wait a little longer just to let it all soak in a little better

    Punching only if you have a carto tank:

    The first fill of a carto is VERY important- has to be fully saturated from top to bottom. The Boge XXL holds 1.4 ml liquid. 20 drops= approx 1 ml juice so at least 27 drops must go in.
