Day one with my vaperator
I've read alot of material on this forum before getting my DSE 901. I studied, i watched Youtube videos, and waited for my new e-cig to arrive. It took about 5 days to get here, and I got it at lunch today
here's my take: I ordered my 901 from the smokeless shop with a kit that included 3 batteries, 2 atomizers, juice, chargers and some extra cartridges. I came home at lunch and took it back to work. The instruction page said the batteries were already charged, so I cracked open a filter(is that what you call them?), screwed together the atty(notice I've already picked up some of the lingo, ha!!) and the battery and started puffing.
WOW did that suck!!! Didn't taste good at all. I think the pre-juiced cartridges are tobacco? Not sure but the first 5 tokes were absolutley disgusting. But I pressed on and continued to use it off and on for an hour or so. Then i noticed that I wasn't getting as much smoke as when I first started. I think I read on here that you can drip the cartridge with some juice and that's what I did. Melon juice to be exact and man did that taste good!!
I didn't have an ANALOG from 3 to 7:30, while I was working. Normally I would smoke every 30 minutes or so. That was pretty impressive. I'm just not sure how much nicotine I'm actually getting from my 901? I topped off the cartridge again when I got home and just wasn't getting much smoke so I decided it must be the battery getting low. I charged the battery and the green light came on after 10 minutes. So i'm guessing it's not the battery. My question is, can you keep dripping juice in the pre-juiced cartridges? I like the fact that I've only had 2 analogs this afternoon but I won't more of a throat hit.
After all that studying I did, I thought I was ready. But I'm realizing now, that I don't know what in the hell I'm doing, ha!! HELP?
i drip right on the atomizer and just take the cart filler out, you could give that a try. also it may be the strength of juice you are using. I use 24 mg, on a joye510. GL! and welcome. PS. only drip if they are manual batteries...push button

You can keep dripping juice in the prefilled carts. Make sure that the atty has some juice on it but not too much to avoid flooding it. Sounds like an atty problem. Maybe not enough juice.
the bad taste could be primer on ur new attys, the melon juice might taste better simply cuz some flavors bring out the nasty primer flavor, while some flavors can overpower it for good flavor...i've noticed strawberry works alrite with primer, while most tobacco flavors are no good with primer...try tobacco again in a couple days after ur atty breaks in...
Can you keep dripping juice into the factory filled cartridges? Yes.
As for the battery charge--the ones I have carry about 40% of a charge. Normally when the green light on the charger turns green that means the battery is full and has turned itself off and will accept no futher charge.
I have noticed on my Joye 510 sometimes I can screw in a battery. The charge light turns red, I walk back to my table. When I set down and look back I see a 'green' light. Obviously this is wrong. I walk back over there, unscrew the battery, then screw it back in and the light turns red again.
I don't think mine is caused by a bad battery. My charger hands down the wall and the tip of the battery holds it up. Most likely my charger just doesn't like 'any' pressure caused by the battery holding it up.
Finally, if you don't get any 'bad taste, order' from vaping on your cartridge you might beable to use the same filler material for a week. If it starts tasting bad (burnt), your cartridge is probably a little too dry. You might take the filler out, rinse it off in hot water, place between two pieces of paper towel and 'pat' it completely dry--then re-stuff your cartridge with it.
As time passes, the filler material will loose its abilitly to stand up in the cartridge--it will then slump down in there. Re-place the filler.
be careful dripping on the 901 unless its a manual battery
I started out with a 901 so I kind of know what you are going thru. First, you didnt say whether you got manual batteries or the automatic ones. If they are the autos, DO NOT DRIP. You will quickly flood the atty which will rund down into your battery and mess up the switch in it. Only manual batteries are sealed and not all of them are.
You can refill or top off a cart quite a few times before you need to clean/change the filler. When you change flavors it is often advisable to start with a clean cart or clean filler. Some flavors just don't go well together. When I was using carts with fillers i used the poly-fill for pillows that you can get at Walmart to make new filler. I would take the old filler, put it in a 10ml syringe with no needle to squeeze all the left over juice out and save it. Believe it or not, you can really get some awesome flavored juice this way. At the very least, you have juice for a rainy day.
I drip right to atomizer once my cartriage went out and popped the cartriage refiller out as well.
Friends don't let friends
What he said. I hate auto batteries. I went thru about a dozen of them in the first month of vaping and was ready to call it quits until I figured out what I was doing wrong. If you like the 901 invest in a few manual batteries and the charging adapters. Doing this also helped the life of my attys for some reason. I know get about 3 months out of a 901 atty. You will see a huge difference in the way you can vape and how much better dripping is.
