eGo CE5+ Rebuildable Cartomizer Video Review (LordDavon)
I cranked my first one of these today. First it didn't work...I fiddled with it a while and it started working. Then it started leaking. So...I dumped the juice, took it apart to mess with it...and broke the little wire from where it connects at the bottom. Got out the replacement innards I bought to fix it....30 minutes later with a LOT of fiddling, it is back together. I'm sure it wouldn't have taken so long if I hadn't been so worried about breaking the wire again. Now to try it again....
I really had to work at squeezing the little circlular thing on the bottom to fit....luckily had another one to check and make sure where it was supposed to go. Then...the top would not go down far enough. I finally took off the silicon cup at the top, pulled the piece that has the wicks off, and then was able to get it pushed down far enough.
This is an awesome concept.....just wish they would make the replacement a little easier.
The E1, on the other hand, is working like a champ. I bought 4 CE5s, and one E1....kinda wishing I had done it the other way around.

I completely agree. The replacement innards are way too difficult for their own good.
Here is a reason for nusty taste:
The wick is so thin and burnes down so fast that literally fell apart when I tried to pull it out of the coil.
I thought the wick (selica) shouldn't gets burned at all? This one even feels like a cotton or smth like that.

I haven't had any burnt or nasty taste, but other people have. I am going to look into it further. I do vape it at lower voltages, since it seems best about 3.4V.
I got 3 of these last week, and as said above, wish I had gotten the E1 instead. These work okay for me, but they have a terribly hard draw. Don't know if it's just the way it was assembled, but when I replace the innards I will check it out. After the first tank, I took it apart and cleaned and burned it just like any other clearomizer. I've used it up to 4 volts, but past that or hit hard at that level it can't keep up. A little wobbly on the top end by the mouthpiece. Vapor is OK, but taste is slightly muted yet. Gonna try the E1 next, but I've never found anything yet to beat a good CE2!
LD....looks like they might have revamped this design to a screw on head (isn't that what you suggested?
Vision Ego 2.0 Clearomizers, Vision Newest.
I tried to use the CE5 I rebuilt with the new innards....doesn't work at all on a KGO, and threw an E1 error on the ProVari. Thinking I will just use the other three until they die, and then give up on this design.
i never had a problem with the innards. but i was replacing the tubes on all three of mine once a week.
