    Monkey Arms great questions. i figured i have questions on this as well so i am not hijacking your Thread. Please do not think i am.
    Taryn i know you invented the refilling trick and its great i use it many times a day but i have to put the bottom condom on or my cart drips thru the bottom. but others say theirs dont leak. am i doing something wrong. The method works great and thank you for telling us this.
    when i first started taryns refilling the first 2 carts leaked thru cause i didnt put the butt and condom on so after those 2 times i put them on the bottom.
    another question and i am sorry if it is stupid but this happenned to me last nite and i am lost why it happ. Why do some cartos get very hot? i understand i vape heavily and maybe thats why but last nite i was vaping my VK and then my battery needed to be charged so i grabbed a greencig battery and screwed it on the VK carto and while i was vaping it got hot. very hot, then too hot to even touch. I quickly unscrewed the greencig battery. anyway i looked at my VK carto and the vinyl paper on the cart looked like it melted so i took it apart. the inside was all burnt and the atty wires were all frayed. Do cartos go bad? Is this cause i used a gc battery on a VK cart?
    Thanks. i figured this is a;ll about cartos so i hope its ok to ppost this here . Thank you MonkeyArms. I think this will help and benefit us all if someone knows the answer. Thank you to all.

    With my refill strategy, i.e. refill early and often, I can't really say. I'd guess that I'm vaping 2-3ml per day, so about 3 cartos worth.

    Again, since I refill before I need to, it might be inflated, but I traditionally refill until I can't anymore. 3 is a minimum, and I usually get about 10 before the carto looks pretty beat up. If I wanted to I could probably get a few more refills out of those, but heck, they are disposable after all.

    I only rinse on a flavor switch, so most cartos only get rinsed once.

    I've never used the GC batts, but most of my vaping is on a PT. I highly suggest that you rotate cartos very frequently. I only take 3-4 draws usually before I'll switch cartos. Getting them too hot, as you discovered, can kill them. I like to think that keeping them cooler also extends the life of the carto.

    Johnny Vapor Thanks for the info. i didnt know you had to rotate cartos. Man i will put a cart on 1 battery and a cart on another battery and just vape them both all day. but i do vae heavy. i may take 10 vapes at a time. holy moly i didnt know you cant do that. been doing it this way for 2 months and it never got hot beforewell it got warm and kinda hot but not too hot to touch like last nite. so i will have to roate from now on
    Thanks again

    What adapter do you use on the Chuck to put the cartos on there. Also where can I get one of those tips?
