    Default Anyone else using "wick-less" clearomizers? I really like them

    I've used short and long-wick clearos before, short wicks are the worst, but long wicks are pretty good. I recently discovered wick-less clearomizers where the "wick" is just cotton in the center tube of the clearo. Granted, I just picked this all back up about a week ago and I'm sure these aren't exactly "new" but I'm really enjoying these new clearos. I filled a wick-less with a local shop's tobacco flavor which is pretty dark in color I would say. On the same day I filled a long-wick clearo with Swagger (very dark) from Pink Spot and in just three days' time, the long wick clearo is done, doesn't hit well at all now. I can do a quick dry burn and that gets it back for about one or two vapes but then it's back to burnt-tasting. The wick-less one is firing along like a champ though.

    Now, to be completely fair I've used the swagger long-wick clearo about three times as much as the other so I guess what I'm wondering from everyone is, do the wick-less clearos outperform AND outlast the long-wick clearomizers in your opinion? I could not tell you the brand of either, they came from a local B&M cigarette store with no branding on them. So anyway, as a big fan of the clearomizer in general, I'd like to know if I should stick to the wick-less or if I'm just imagning things. TIA!

    I haven't tried the wickless clearos yet, but I've used many different clearos. I am interested to hear from the folks about their experiences with them, before I buy them. The description you provided was not exactly a "scientific" comparison, so I'm not sure we can glean anything from this particular experience, but there are definitely some mixed reactions out there to the wickless clearos. Long or short wicks doesn't always make that much difference depending on the location of the wicks and the wick material. What is always key is that these heads do wick correctly and sufficiently to keep up with the atomization of the liquid, neither too quick, nor too slow, so different clearos work differently for different vapers because of their vape technique. This accounts, in part, why we get such a broad and diversified picture of the "best" clearo out there. Different strokes, and so forth. Good luck to you and welcome to the Forum.

    I'm interested in trying 'wick-less' clearos, but I don't where to look for them or what to look for or even what they look like

    Todd...you got a pic of those (so I can compare, when I'm hunting for stuff)

    Hi Bill! The short wicks I tried were at the top of the clearomizer, not the bottom. They were truly awful, unless you wanted to vape while staring at the ceiling. The wick-less clearos, so far, have never dry-hit on me, they have a perfectly acceptable (at least to me) amount of vapor and, having had the same flavor (albeit quite awhile ago) through both types, the wick-less are at least as good and, honestly seem to have more flavor to me. Like i said, could just be placebo but so far I have not found a downside to them. I was just curious if anyone else who uses them noticed the same things as I, or anything different. The last time I took up vaping to quit smoking I basically did so without doing much research or learning, just kinda learned on my own. Unfortunately when I hit a little adversity, rather than reach out for help I just went back to analogs. I'm trying to remedy that part this time

    I use the wickless and find that they do vape better than long wicked clearo's, which I use also. I have had no dry hits whatsoever with the wickless (CE5) and this is with continuous vape, one after another, 3-4 hits in a row without waiting. They are amazingly smooth vapes. My biggest problem is finding them to buy.

    These are rebuildable, mine are not, but they look identical other than that little detail:

    CE5+ Clearomizer

    Also, didn't watch this video but it apparently talks about them:

    I don't like the CE5. The bottom hole is too high and there always 1/4 of juice left in the bottom of the tank.

    Yes bottom hole is way too high, and I had a ton of problems getting a solid connection on anything I had, when it worked though it was great specially on my vamo, it was about 2.7 ohm and was great at about 3.9-4.1 volts.
