    Default My refilling trick

    I had no chocolate cartos to refill with the juice I ordered to try, my plan was to take a used kamel carto and rinse it and use it for my new chocolate. Rinsing was as easy as the other forum members suggested and soon I had a new looking empty carto that smelled just slightly of kamel, close enough for me!

    Impatient person that I am I wanted to try the chocolate right after it arrived so I started filling up my carto and wondered how can I force the juice throughout the batting inside without waiting for it to soak down. I tried the plunger method and it did seem to force it down a bit. Then tried an idea of mine, putting on the condoms and butt plug, I popped it into one of those battery bags (top end up) and spun it in circles and the centrifugal force easily pushed the juice all the way into the batting, it looked dry as a bone when I opened it up again. I added several more drops, I lost count because my phone kept ringing. Three times I dripped new juice inside and spun, I know I added at least thirty drops. After the last spin I added three drops on the top because it was well soaked in again.

    I was able to vape it right away with fantastic flavor and tons of vapor and very long lasting. I'll count the drops accurately next time or if someone tries it let me know how many you could get in. I even used the trick when I flodded my atty with juice when I was just topping off my pineapple cart, was able to vape on it immediately with no sizzling flooded sound and feel and no wasted juice from blowing it out. So far my cartos seem to thrive with that little helicopter spin!

    Has anyone else tried this trick?

    That's a neat trick! I have used the 'shake it like a thermometer' tip to get the juice down, but I like your idea much better! Will definitely try it next time

    Interesting idea.... Just tried it and boy does it work. I know you're supposed to stop at 18 drops when refilling, but for shock value i just got 30 drops in using this method. Gonna vape it and will update on how long it lasts.

    I'm going to have to try this trick Taryn. last time I dropped in 25 drops, even with the "shake the therm", and plunger method, I still flooded my cartos all to hell. Thanks for the tip!

    I will have to try this! Because of right now I suck at refilling! My refills last for about an hour or two when a brand new cart will last me almost all day! Ive heard a lot of people talk about rinsing the carts out and I tried it but how are you "blowing them out" Do you just put the battery end in your mouth and blow in it real hard? And do you have to wait at all for all the water to dry up until you add juice? I really need to get good at refilling so I can save some money!!

    maaron - put the mouth end (without the white cap and rubber stopper) in your mouth.

    How about making a sling for this technique?

    Take an empty 10ml juice bottle and cut the neck off. Get a 3-foot length of cord or strong string, double it, place the bottle in the bend of the cord and hot-glue it or tape it in place. The cord should run across the bottom of the bottle and up the sides.

    Place the carto in the bottle, hold the cord ends in your hand and spin it around your head, like David winding up for a shot at Goliath.

    I have some nylon drawstring cord from a windbreaker, and I think I'll try this out.

    I have never had to do this, though I haven't tried every liquid out there, so it may be necessary with some e-liquids.
    After rinsing out a cart, I can get from 23 to 30 drops of fresh liquid into it. Sometimes I let them sit, but my last two I refilled I vaped right away with no flooding or other problems...

    Blowing them out means just that, blowing into the open end with the white cap and o-ring out. A couple of medium blows and it's as dry as a bone inside.

    Oh and you do not have to helicopter it around super fast or very long, the bag worked perfect for me for this but I'm sure you could use anything that would allow you to twirl it in a circle.

    And even cartos that haven't been rinsed will take much more juice without flooding using this trick.
