I use either Virginia Menthol or Smilin menthol where hubs uses Triple Nickle. He has no problem with carts or tanks. Mine are always burning out or have a godaweful taste within a day or two. And that happens when we occasionally change to different manufacturers. For almost 4 years I've been extremely happy with everything from v4l. I really hope they can figure this out, too.
    Also - lambolover808 - I'll say hi neighbor because in a town this size, chances are you're not too far away.
    This sounds like you may not be refilling the carts when they need to. It varies by user, but you should always check a carto to make sure that it still looks moist. You can also tell that it needs refilling when the vapor is almost flavorless. What type of carts are you using? How often do you refill them?

    I can tell you that I keep my carts filled almost to the point of flooding. Not enough juice cannot be the problem. Something has changed. Something is not right in the product line. Your team should take the issue seriously or you are sure to lose customers.

    You know, that might make sense, but I haven't used only V4L juice, and all my smileomizers have bit the dust after 1 or maybe 2 refills. I go through like 2-4 a day, depending. It's become useless to continue, but as my other mods all broke, I have this one Zeus and seem to be unable to break this horrible cycle.

I bought a 5 pack of atomizers and not 1 lasted past a day. Either burned up the coil or burnt taste. So I went back to a carto tank with smoke tek cartos.
    My initial thought was the kanger atomizers were junk. I have not had good luck in the past with bottom coils. So I went back to what I know. Problem is I've almost gone through the 5 pack of smoke tek carts already.
    The only common link is the V4L 18mg peach juice that I use as my all day everyday juice.
    I would like to hear from anyone else who changed from V4L cartos to other manufacturers and are still having similar issues.... The dying coils premature clogging etc..

    Juice seems to be pretty clean. I can't speak for the tanks or carts anymore (never had problems with them), but the smileomizers are really going to destroy them if they continue to be defective. I appreciate that they send me replacements, but I suppose I'll have to keep reporting the problem every time. Putting "don't send me defective smileomizers" in order comments doesn't work.

    I love V4l and their Juice. It has been my all day everyday vape since I started vaping and quit smoking. I just hope that they figure out the issue, weather its the juice, or smileomizers. Maybe a combination of both? I figured I would just use other rigs until the smileomizer thing got fixed, but moving to different devices only made things more confusing for me!

    I have completely switched devices and setups. I purchased a re buildable atomizer tank so I could see exactly what was going on. after 1 day of vaping V4L peach I had a black build up on my coil. this build up caused my coil to go way out of spec. It was a 2 ohm coil when I started, within 24 hours the resistance had gone up to 3.5 ohms, because of the build up. I can clearly see what is happening inside a smileomizer or cart now. There is extra sweetener getting left behind on the coils causing clogging and coil resistance sky rocketing...

    I thought it was only the P-Nut Butter Cup so I ordered the Peach and Pear juice and they are both clogging the BDCs after about a day. Now, I know they changed something because we have used this for 3 or 4 years without a problem until just the past couple of months. I have the same set-up with Dekang 555 and get 2 weeks out of one BDC. My wife is going to have to find another supplier because I am just wasting money.

    Im in the same boat.. I have ordered the same juice in the same strength for 4 years! now all of a sudden smileomizers, carts, kangers etc,, wont last past a day. it may not be every flavor thats affected, but certainly the peach. I think they changed sweeteners, or added more. The strange thing is the juice taste the same, but i cant tell you there is ALOT of build up on the coil after 1 day!

    The Cola killed three of my BDCs in a row, each died after one days use.
