    Default Wiki

    This information is exactly the kind of stuff that needs to be on th e-cig Wiki, so that people don't have to dig through the forum to find it. Still good info.

    Hello there, maybe you can help me!! I just purchased my first e-cig, it is from a company called OMG. after charging the bats i put on a new cart and the first two puffs were ok with good throat hit and good vapor, after that I would get harsh throat hits and no visible vapor and other times I would get good vapor and no throat hit and other times I would get this disgusting burnt flavor and this is all within the first 2 through 15 puffs.
    So I did some research and bought a 510 titan from wicked and I am having the same problems. So I tried dripping, I tried topping off the cart . I just cant seem to get consistent vapor out of either one of them.
    I would greatly appreciate your advice as I want to quit smoking, but it will not work for me unless I can produce a consistent vapor to get me by. Thank You in advance,
    Mark Z.

    It says in the guide to wait 3 minutes between drags. Really? Did I read that correctly?

    That's a recommendation from a manufacturer. It's there for reference. I don't think many people wait that long though.

    Great information in the trouble shooting guide. I think I understand what has been going on and how the dead appeared. Now I feel confident that this can be somewhat easily corrected.

    Thank you so much.

    Heck yeah, I feel like I just got a new manual that was originally intended to be written in English... no I think maybe I'll call it American today.
    Yeah - written in American.

    Default Batteries

    Hi! You seem like you must be the 'battery' expert. I use vapor4life and I'm happy with the product. However, I seem to go through batteries like crazy. This style is the two part .... battery and cartomizer. The 'vapor lock' batteries seem to get tough to draw on after a few uses. I tried cleaning the contacts with alcohol and 'blowing' through the battery, but it just won't budge.

    I recently began using the manual batteries. My newest one is a 'supersize' that was lasting all day long. It was terrific! However, for some reason once I attach any cartomizer, it blinks when I push the button as though it's running low on power. When I remove the cartomizer, the light stays on when I push the button. I found that the first few times just plugging it back in the the charger for a few minutes would fix the problem. However, that has stopped working and I'm back down to one manual battery, two mini's (that I have to pull up the contacts after every use) and a regular battery with virtually no draw. HELP!
    Thanks!
    Cindy

    for a noob, this guide is like a map of an uncharted territory.
    that was before... not anymore. jim's ecf troubleshooter changed all that.
    thanks, guru.
