I introduced a friend who smokes to vaping a few months ago and he bought an eGo. A couple of months went by and every time I talked to him he mentioned how pleased he was with the PV and giving up cigarettes.
Recently, I ran into him and noticed he was smoking a cigarette. He said he had to give up vaping because of serious allergy issues every time he would vape.
Long story short: After a few minutes talking with him about variables...we got down to cartridges. Asked him when was the last time he changed cartridges. He said he never changed the cartridges because in his words "they don't wear out".
I told him the residue liquid or batting might be contaminated. Suggested he pop in a new cartridge and see if that would solve the problem. He did. NO Allergy issues! He is now a happy camper and tosses cartridges once a week. He knows now that he could disinfect the cartridges and make his own batting etc...However, he said that the cartridges are cheap and he wasn't going to take any chances.
Wondering if others might have experienced similar issues and or have returned to analogs not realizing their allergy issues could have been avoided by changing the cartridge or changing the cartridges more often?
