New to filling carts - Are they supposed to crackle?
So I just filled my first cart (yay!) with Johnson Creek Red Oak Domestic. I'm using volt cartomizers and the volt automatic battery.
Let it sit for a half hour and it tastes great, although the vapor is quite strong and there's a crackling noise in the cartomizer at each hit. Did I do something wrong?
No, a bit of crackle is what you'd expect from a carto. If you're getting good hits out of it, it's normal.
Sounds normal to me!!
It's *gurgle* you really don't want to hear...
if you get a gurgle it means that you have overfilled and now you have some juice in the airflow tube in the middle.blow through the carto and no more gurgles
oh ok. i've been very careful to only drip down the sides of the carto top so that none gets in the airflow tube. Does 18-20 drops at a time sound right?
Crackling is the sound of carto heaven.
I'm not sure about the number of drops to top it off when it starts getting dry, but you'll know it's ready to hit when the inside is nice and wet. Sounds sexy, I know.
As all have said above...
Gurgle not good.
As for how many drops?
When I used cartos, I would add slowly...about 5 drops at a time and rest. Then, continue til it got slushy.
I know there are videos out there showing how to push juice from the bottom using the plastic cover.
There are many ways and means to fill them. I fill from the bottom and add from the top. I also blow my carto's out onto a paper towel before use to make sure it doesn't Gurgle..
I love it when my cartos crackle.
