    I talked to somebody at the Chicago B&M. They pretty much confirmed that people have problems with the Smileomizers. For now I am switching to the dual coil tanks.

    It's obvious there is an issue... it would be nice to have a V4l rep get out in front of this issue and let us know when it will be resolved. I sent a tweet to V4l amd they responded that samples have been sent back to the manufacturer. To leave the effected smileomizers up for sale with a known issue is bad businesses practice imho. The people who are trying them for the first time don't know like alot of us do how great they can be!! And to sell a subpar product at regular prices will only cause more problems. They have been great about replacing the bad ones, but that means I have to keep buying a product I know is bad or switch products..

One cart just plain wouldn't fire at all filled it with 90 drops and nothing I adjusted the contact and still nothing im on number 4 today and its pretty much the same thing clogs easily. Im not sure whats the difference same juice same batty s terrible results any ideas? I guess i need to learn how does everyone clean there center hole with out damaging the electrode?
    I have the same problem. See my earlier thread in the forum. For a while, I was only able to make it a few days, then I got a batch with screens which worked for a week each. Doesn't matter which juice I use, and like you, if I use a paper clip it breaks the filament inside. This new batch of 10, at $60, has been a horrible waste of money. I'm going through 3 or 4 a day. Not sure if the ones without screens don't work well and they are getting rid of old stock or what. It's really frustrating. Doesn't have to do with cleaning or the battery as far as I can tell; I use best practices and it makes no difference.

    It's a shame, really, because I love the Zeus and smileomizers when they work, but when they don't it's a money sink. Hopefully we'll hear from Vapor4life staff about these problems.

    The first batch of smileos I got back when the zeus was new were great and now have stopped using them due to their very short life. I really liked them too, but the Zeus is still an awesome battery and goes well with carto tanks!

    Audrey, I obviously cant speak for everyone here, but I believe we have all contacted cs, and have gotten replacements. But in order to get replacements we have to continue to buy defective equipment! Do you see how maddening that can be?? We have all wasted juice, hoping that the next one will work, only to have it clog, or die. I don't believe that anyone is questioning V4Ls customer care, But I think we are all wondering why you guys would continue to sell a product you know is defective. Only to have to turn around to ship out replacements? In the long run its costing V4L money. Maybe discount the ones that are questionable, and don't do exchanges, or better yet scrap the questionable ones before you start loosing new customers who have not had the experience most of us have had when the smileomizers worked like they are supposed to! Then people will start talking about how bad the V4L products are, not knowing it was simply a bad batch.
    Just my 2 pennies.....

    I have to agree the ones i got in my last order are $$$$ compared to the older ones. I buy them 20 at a time got only 12 left out of this batch. I am only getting 1 or 2 days out of them. when i use to get 2 weeks. I like my Zeus but not to happy with lately. I also would like to know when you have fixed this problem.

    Yes, I have to agree. V4L was very good about shipping me out 10 replacements. However, those 10 replacements also did not work. Went through them right away. I don't believe this is a case of some users needs being different than others. I have tried brown, black, green, etc, and these things are just defective. They work great for the first fill and then it's game over. I'm actually planning to buy 10 more with 0 nicotine juice just so I can quit. This is getting more expensive than my old cigarette habit.

    Is there any update on the defective smileomizers yet? I feel like an ... buying $60 worth and then continuing to request replacements. I'm going through 3-4 a day, even with unclogging. To add insult to injury, my Vapor Zeus had a defective automatic switch and I still am waiting for the replacement (although you guys were good about sending out smileomizer replacements), which unfortunately, also were defective. Went through those 10 in 2 days.

    Hey guys! Hope you’re all having a FABULOUS week so far! This is what I can tell you about our Smileomizers. We sell a TON of them and still feel they are the best cartomizer on the planet! We did send a bunch to our manufacturer for testing. It turns out there is a 2% defective rate, which is very low, and unfortunately bound to happen with any product that is mass produced. Of course we want this number to be zero, and are doing everything we can to make sure we continue to produce extremely high quality products. We would never sell any product that is subpar, or does not live up to our high standards, as we here use them too. We stand behind all of our products 100% and will gladly replace any product that does not work as it should. With that being said, we have received a new shipment of Smileomizers and are sending them out in orders. Please let us know if you have any questions. We’re here to help!!
