Whomever said it does, you might want to stop listening to them.
I'd say it probably won't work or we'd all be doing it, but the worst that can happen is you ruin an atty or singe your tongue with steam.
Hardware: Tesla, Vamo v3, Silver Bullet @ 3.7v, Omega @ 3.7v, a pile of 3.7v boxmods. I'm a diehard, old school dripper. There aren't many of us left anymore, too bad because that's how you get the cleanest, tastiest vape.
Trust me, after vaping on a 510 atty thats still a little damp from a water rinse, its a horrible burnt smokey taste and will ruin it too.
