    Default Can the filters be reused on these?

    I have been using my 901 since Sunday evening and have worked my way through the 5 filters that were included with my starter kit. I have been adding juice to them but find that the filter material inside becomes "stringy" for lack of better terms. Is there a way to prevent this or should I just purchase new filters every time? Is there a way to replace the filter media?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I used the wrong term. They are cartridges that attach to an atomizer. They are NOT cartomizers.

    People replace those fillers all the time. There is something called umm Fluval or something? Some sort of blue stuff that people buy and cut up and use those to replace the stuffing. I myself have used empty tea bags -- there are threads on here somewhere that have a bunch of different ideas for refilling those cartridges. Lemme see if i can go find some links for you!

    they say its very cheap to buy -- i never tried it. I did do the tea bag thing cuz i happened to have like 40,000 boxes of tea in my cupboards and i didnt think that was too bad at all.

    I remember thinking that too about the fish tank stuff lol -- hmmm do i have any filter stuff around here that is NOT full of old algae and fish poo??

    I have lots of teabags at home so I think I'm going to try that method first. Of course my main concern is leaking around the mouthpiece or into my mouth, but I figure it is worth a try. Right now it seems I'm getting 3 -4 drops of juice into the cartridge when I'm topping off, but any more than that and I'm too full.

    Dotma....I really need you to make sure the filter media has no poo or algae. I'm thinking that is not a tasty vape at all!!
