I fell in love with the 901 atty's last year (2010). They lasted 1 to 4 weeks, they tasted so good, they blew-away 510 atty's as far as taste. Then I fell in love with them even more when I got my First Very-able volt battery mod. I would dial them in at 4.4 volts and Tasty Vapors: Waffle, Caramel Popcorn, Tasty Finger and Café Moca tasted even better. And the vapor was so dense and full, I swore I would never stop using them on my Joker V-V. and My ProVeri.
In January 2011 I made an order and they were great as usual. Then in March I ordered some more, and they seemed kinda stale, didn't last very long. Ordered some more a couple weeks later, and they were very DRY like the primer had evaporated, and keep burning the liquid, After-burn after every draw (I hate that sound SSSHHhheeewww). I ordered some place else. Same thing. Ordered some where else, same thing. I wrote myvaporstore (always ordered from them, I like them) stating my concern that I have been getting old and stale 901's and they insured me that they get new shipments every month.
I have been Vaping for over a year, and I know all the tricks, I've used Blue Foam and it works fine. The bad 901's started about 5 months ago. Either 1- they made changes to it, 2- they stopped using primer in them, 3- They are really stale and the primer evaporated and left a dry residue on the element causing them to suck.
I really likED the 901's, and wish that would come back again like they use to be.
Any one else have this conundrum? Or am I just UNLUCKY? Should I give up on the 901's like I did with the 801's, ego-tanks, small Cigarette style battery's, Lea-tanks, etc.?
Or, should I just thank my lucky stars I found the CE2 Clearomizer? I cant wait for their new improved CE3's. They are good for the liter flavors. But, I really do miss doing the 901's on 4.4 volt!
