Hello. Just soak it in rubbing alcohol for an hour or so. Rinse in warm water. Blow it out. Let it sit upright with the battery connection at the top.
I just got mine in the mail, yesterday, and I had no problems getting the primer out with this method.
Thanks Olde One - I love IPA for cleaning most things, using the purest I can find, but think I'll use Everclear 90. I think letting it set upright as you say...for 24 hrs or longer is key.
I didn't need to let this one dry out for that long, actually. Hm. I think I had it sitting for a couple hours. Yeah, I was antsy to try out my new vape. The spare atomizer was allowed to dry for over a day. Well, more than that. I haven't used it, yet. I haven't had a reason to bust it out.
Day two of the Ego-T, and it's still great. It's even working well with my crazy-thick, pure VG juices.
So turns out I was afraid of the dry burn.
microwave boiled 1/2 a cup of drinking water (Kroger's "Purified water"...yeah, probably has some minerals in it, but didn't have any vodka nor distilled water)
added 1/2 cup of room temperature distilled white vinegar to cool it a bit
bathed and blew out, bathed and blew out, repeatedly about 5 times
nuked some more drinking water and repeated a 'rinse' cylce 5 times then....
dry burned repeatedly, 4 seconds on, 4 seconds off (blowing in the tank chamber)...until there was no more smoke no more smell, and as Sassy said until the heater glowed after a 1 second press.
dropped the atty in the drinking water bottle with the remaining room temp water and shook it for about a minute
blew out the remaining final rinse water *blowing in each end* (why not...) until no more water blew out
Qtip dried each end
stuck on a tank and pulled (without inhaling) hard on it about 7 times for good luck, and what better way to prime it?
back on the USB PT battery connected...
fired it up
....no residual burn nor vinegar taste. Worked very well. No waiting for it to dry at all.
