Best way that I have found to clean attys is to soak in Vodka (cheap stuff) over night and then blow out from battery end. Not a clearomizer person so I cant help you there. Wen you refer to tanks what kind of tanks are you referring to?
No Problem, Glad I could help. One thing I forgot to mention, after you soak and blow out the atomizer you should keep it wet. If your going to use it relatively soon just add a few drops of what ever juice your using in there before using, if your going to let it sit for a while you should put a few drops of plain PG or VG in there just to keep it moist. For the Tank I usually will take it apart and soak it in hot soapy water (usually Dawn) and then rinse well and dry, always worked for me. Some people will boil theirs in water but have not tried that, if u were to use that method I would remove the o-rings
Found this youtube, made by a member on the ECF. Never tried to put a link on here so I hope it works. If not just search Estarra on youtube and go to his channel, he has a few videos pertaining to the Vision Ego Clearomizers.
I just happened upon a syringe with an attachment which makes a good seal on one end of a cartomizer. I gather you just attach the cartomizer to the syringe and flush warm water in and out several times. Smoktek has them here. It certainly looks efficient. Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing or with this product?

Reason: messed up
Never tried it before but for $6.95 its worth a shot. In my experience with cleaning atomizers, letting them soak in vodka or alcohol has been the best, and I have tried different methods. Cartomizers are a different beast, I have tried boiling them in water like many other people do and they are never "like new". I would fill them up after letting them dry out and the taste was always off to me. But its def worth a shot, it just might work for ya.
$8.95!!!! You can get one at Wal-Mart for less than $2.00. Here's a video of a guy cleaning cartomizers. I use a similare modified procedure to clean atomizers. I do a few dry burns first and I use distilled water (to avoid mineral build up) that I bring to a boil in the microwave. Blow it out and a couple dry burns to dry. If you do it with the water in a white bowl, you'll see the little particles of carbon.
