I was nervous trying this but was about to chuck the atty on my 19 day old eGo T thanks so much Vicki and Shaka!
I had a few challenges. Difficult getting the plate out, was afraid I would bend/damage but finally did get it out with a small flathead, followed all the steps, got the wick out fine. Problem came when I went to put the wick back in, wick came out of mesh Somehow I was able (determined) to get it wrapped back around and did .whew. then.... re assembled then couldn't get the plate back in tried tried tried, used a drill bit end, then empty ink pen body, pushed pushed....aggggggh no go, finally got it when I pushed it straight down hard enough and heard and felt a pop, in it was. Nervously put my juice filled cartridge back in...took a draw and Wow!!!! I can't believe the vapor! and flavor! it's better than it was when it was new. Nothing short of amazing. Wouldn't have believed it until I did it. Now I MIGHT have the nerve to try it on the other one. Thanks so much!
when i take the wick out of my atomizer of the ego c it isn't being held by a mesh or anything.. is this right? i'm getting flooding and can't get it work right. ughhhhh i'm about to throw this thing against the wall
Check inside of the spike to see if the mesh is stuck in there. While the mesh is not absolutely necessary, it does add a great deal to the smoothness of the flow. It is entirely possible to re-wick without the mesh, but wick position and thickness can become a finicky factor in getting the flow correctly adjusted.
if there is no mesh around fiber of your wick - you don't have genuine Joyetech eGo-C
Thanks for this excellent tutorial. My atomisers are fine for now, but I had been wondering how to clean them when the time came.
Does this process work with the type a as well as the type b?
it should work with any atty that has the removable nib that punctures the tank.
No matter how unrealistic, optimism is always preferred.
