    Hello, if i want to switch up juices to try another flavor then whats the best way to go about it? Also, should I switch heads everytime I change juices or can those be cleaned as well? Thanks.

    I toss mine in a cup with warm water over night unless you use something like pluid or very dark you should be OK to just rinse and dry for a lil

    Ok thanks. Does that go for the head as well or just the tank? Should I replace heads with a new flavor or can they been cleaned and reused as well?

    just soak it in vodka or any other unflavored higher proof alcohol, or even takes out all the smell and cleans it very good. Just be careful with polycarbonate tanks with too high proof as it could damage it.

    I run hot tap water up in it while holding a finger under the mouthpiece....then shake and rinse. I repeat this 6-7 times and then toss head and body in a rubbermaid container full of distilled water......after 20-30 min in distilled water I remove atty + body with tweezers and lay them on an old towel to dry (an hour or more).

    Haven't needed to dry burn at all tap water contaminants left.

    Either run hot water over/in everything as long as my hand can take it. Or let it all soak in hot water for an hour or so (or until I remember). Lay it all out and let it dry on a paper towel. Fill 're up and vape.

    I have used the same head for over 2 weeks so far.

    I soak the tank and only the tank in 50/50 white distilled vinegar and water for 5 minutes and rinse, good to go! DO NOT PUT RUBBER GROMETS IN THIS SOLUTION!!!!

    I just cleaned my T3s last night with vodka. Worked great & only took about 5 min plus dry time.

    Be careful cleaning with vodka. I recommend a distilled water rinse afterwords since vaping alcohol can be very dangerous.

    I know the alcohol is a common practice but personally avoid the risk.

    Have you tried rebuilding the coil in these tanks? Super easy and easy more cost effective.

    This is what I do to clean & dry burn before I swap out juices!

    I actually dip mine in rubbing alcohol overnight and in the morning I take it out and let it sit all day.. the alcohol just evaporates and you have an almost brand new coil..

    Thanks for the video, 317. I am two weeks into this, and my first atomizer is starting to perform poorly (I was a pack a day smoker). I have spares, but if I can get some more life out of them then that is even more money saved.

    Some have said that dry burning burns the insulator, resulting in burnt flavor, even with clean coils and wicks. Here's what happened to me:

    In my last attempt at cleaning & dry burning, I took about 20+ evod and protank heads, pulled the stems and flavor wicks, soaked and rinsed repeatedly in warm water, thoroughly dried. I then rotated between 4 batteries, giving each coil about a 3 second burn 'till it glowed, and repeated this about 5 times. After they cooled, I put a clean cotton flavor wick on each, and put them back together. The result? I've gotten no more than a full EVOD tank out of any of them before they started producing burnt hits, so I'm wondering if I may have burned the insulators? And if I recoil these heads with cotton, are they still going to go burnt on me?

    Ok I have had it so many comments about rebuilding coils being super easy.

    What exactly are you talking about rebuilding coils?
    Does it involve soldering?
    Do you need a magnifier to see what you are doing - ie precision tools?
    Does it involve wrapping fine wire into a coil with non-touching coils?
    Does it involve the magic of getting a tiny wick to through a 1mm diameter coil?

    Dry burning is relatively easy to do. Just check out some YouTube videos on this.... between that and all the info you will find here you'll be a pro in no time!!

    Everclear vodka. I do soak them in hot water too.

    Just some crazy old lady happily vaping away.

    I just drop my coil head in a cup of hot water and let it soak overnight. Then I let it dry on a paper towel. I do this every couple of days before I get any burnt taste. Then I put the coil head on the base remove the chimney and attach it to my cheap ego battery and dry burn for a second til it glows. I leave the flavor wicks in place cause last time I removed them I lost them. I put a drop of e liquid on the wicks and let it soak in. Then I put the tank back together and vape on.
    I had some juice that would burn quick in the iclear, but never had that problem with the protank.
    I think the key is cleaning before its burnt.
