    Default re-fill supplies/acessories??

    You mentioned that you are using a syringe.

    Where did you get the syringe from?

    We live in PA, possibly one of the most restrictive in the US for buying a syringe.

    In PA you are required to have a prescription to legally buy a syringe.
    Here's the weird parts: That rule ONLY applies to a syringe to use for a human.

    A farmer can buy a limited supply at a place that sells animal medications. (The syringe, and the medication are exempt from the prescription rule!)

    I have ordered syringes for "refilling ink cartridges" from e-bay at a pretty good price. (new ones of course, do NOT want to try and smoke ink! YUCK)

    I guess since the needles are dull they are exempt?

    Anyway, thanks PA for your bizarre laws.

    Some folks say 15 to 20 drops (20 drops = 1 ML) Have heard that various cartomizers can hold 2 ML (40 drops) but I'm not sure if this applies to the VK cartomizers. It also depends on how dry your cartomizer is when you refill it. I would start with 15 drops if it is pretty dry since you can always add more without wasting any of the liquid by overfilling/overflowing.

    Can you elaborate on how this is done? Do you actually suck it in with your mouth or do you use some kind of eyedropper like tool? Any worries that you may suck it through into your mouth?
    Thanks for being so open about this Steve! I know you could easily be all hush hush about how to refill these to boost your cartridge sales. Your transparency is refreshing as this mint carts I just got.

    When I use this method, I simply use the dropper bottle that the juice comes in. After dropping 4 to 6 drops of juice into the battery end, I turn the atomizer on its side and roll it back and forward with my finger to help with distribute the liquid. The liquid dissappears into the atomizer within seconds! Because you'll only get liquid in your mouth if you overfill the atomizer, the amount of your refill will depend on how dry (or empty) your atomizer is to start with. It's a trial and error thing.

    Thanks alot gings! I just gave it a try. Holy crap! the cartridge seems to just suck the liquid in on its own. I was totally expecting the liquid to just spill all over my hands.
    Gonna wait a little while to and let it sit before I try out this Dr.Pepp.

    Yep, that's exactly what I thought you were thinking.

    I see some people talk on various sites about "sqeezing out" old catridges.

    Couple of questions if anyone can answer them.

    1 - WHY? Is this a way to clear all juice of out a cart, and maybe have a "cleaner" old cart (free of mixed flavors)?

    2 - How would you do that?
    The only way I could think of is to open up the cart, and remove the filler material.
    Then use a heavy syringe to squeeze it out.

    Would this cause other issues?
    Like squished filler material, and how do you get the material back in correctly?

    Sorry for some of these, but still learning.

    You dont have to be afraid of the juice, that amount will not kill you if you touch a little
    Take the old filler out of the cart, tweezers, paperclip??
    and put it on a piece of paper towel or napkin and fold over the PT or napkin and it gets all soaked up, real easy,

    Some people clean it under water and let dry I use most of the same juices, so it does not matter to me
    I rarely re use the filler, there are SO many alternatives you can find on this site to try something else as filler
