    First and foremost, I did not write what you're about to read. This information comes from esigaret.nl, but is so solid that I felt it had to be listed here for the benefit of our members. So without further ado:

    Direct link

    Enjoy everyone!

    I know we each have our own ways ... but I can't see doing this. It's WAY too much trouble. And it smacks of doing dope. I want a product that works as designed. I keep cartridges filled and batteries charged and use my e-smoking devices as intended.

    I have tried this, by the way, with underwhelming results. It wasn't much of an improvement over a brimming cartridge and freshly charged battery. It definitely wasn't worth all the dismantling, dripping and reassembly. And I cannot see doing this in an office or public place.

    Just one e-smoker's opinion, you understand. But I have no interest at all in dripping.

    I use both.

    The dripping method when I use the e-cigs I got from e-cig.com.

    The cartridges when I use my Janty or NJOY because they work great.

    I like both methods but dripping is not easy to do when you are driving.

    In the interest of full disclosure -- I changed my mind. I now drip for my e-cigar. Works great. Not so great are either the mini cig or the pipe. But they may come around yet.

    I tried e-dripping on my mini health E-cig, didn't work at all... do you e-drip on the metal wool looking part or right on the spiraled coil??? Both my mini ecigs quit working after that all together even with a fresh cartridge. (dripped on the outer metalish looking wool) They both started working the next day with the normal cartridges. I was worried. :eek: Applied 2 small drips on each side. Not sure how they fixed themselves, maybe dried up.. who knows.

    We indeed have the same Health mini cig. "Didn't work at all" describes it well. "Didn't work" also describes what happened. I got nothing! I stood the atomizer on end and an incredible amount of liquid crud poured out in the next 15 minutes. After that, it resumed its weak vapor production.

    I'm pretty disheartened with the cig. I use it now mostly as a prop, same way I used fake plastic cigarettes before I began e-smoking (hey, a smoker needs something in his hand!).

    I really can't see where the liquid is hitting for any of my devices. The e-pipe also flunked. Nothing spectacular resulted. But the e-cigar with two drops down the middle is great. And it lasts for many, many puffs.

    I'm actually impressed with 2 out of the many mini health e-cigs I bought.. vapor is excellent.. Soon as I get my Sh*t together and set up. I'll upload and post some videos for you and everyone else to see and compare.

    If you drip and drive, it's time for the Detrol discussion!

    And, for Karen's leak, we need Depends for E-Cigs. Then it can just keep going and going and going ...

    I know htis is an old post, but I wanted to share my experience here- I have two SmartFixx penstyles, and 3 atomizers- two atomizers simply will not work with Cartridges in them, I get a burtn flavor when tryign to use htem with Carts, and no vapor, and I htought the atomizer was kaput in htem and just set htem aside thinking I couldn't do anyhtign with htem- however, just out of curiosity, I took the Carts out of hte two 'dead' ones, and dripped 3 drops straight onto the atomizer, and the burnt taste dissappeared after a few inhales, and hte vapor is now very good- I'm getting 15-20 full drags off them using htis method- which is abotu = to one full regular cigarette smoke-wise (I know hte nicotine isn't = but I'm mainly after vapor to satisfy that part of htr smoking experience)-

    to me, it's not really a big deal dripping 3 drops for hte = of one cigarrette- just a little extra step- no big deal. I'm smoking hte pens without any mouthpiece- so htere's no dissassembly and reassembly needed each time (This of course won't work with a mini cigg as you'd need the mouth piece to create the chamber between mouth and atomizer- but I was thining, maybe I'll try enlarging the hole in the mini mouthpiece so I can just drip directly htrough it without havign to dissassemble and reassemble)

    The only peroblem with not using hte mouthpiece on the penstle, is that you can't hold it in your teeth anymore- but perhaps enlarging hte hole on the penstyle mouthpiece will work too.

    Nazareth,

    How are you smoking without a mouthpiece? Doesn't the atomzier get too warm/hot?

    Thanks for all the info. Do you guys just drip smoke or do you use cartridges? I've never drip smoked and am kind of afraid of ruining my atomizer. I also read somewhere that someone was using stainless steel wool in an empty cartridge. Any thoughts? I want to try veggie glycerin, but where do you get it? I was thinking a baking supply shop might have it. Also can you get stainless steel wool at the hardware store or in a hardware dept like Kmart? What grade? Any other thoughts on what to use as cartridge material? Anyone tried the guts of a filter from a cigarette? I want to make sure whatever material I use is safe for human consumption. By the way I have an Njoy penstyle and also an E-Puffer Penstyle. The Njoy definitely produces more vapor, but the E-Puffer is not too bad. I just got another e-cig from myecig.com as I have seen Dusty's video. But it only comes in white. Maybe I can decorate it with heat proof enamel paint and have a designer e-cig : ) Anyway, I've been puffing on it off and on for about 4 hours now and so far, it's superb! The vanilla flavor isn't very strong, though it's pleasant. I'm still afrad of dripping. I also just got some e-juice and have dripped a few drops on a cartridge. So far so good.

    Damn it, Janet! (Sorry, I'm a RHPS fan) Take a deep breath, and calm down. ;) You just asked about a dozen different questions is 30 seconds. All I can say is welcome, and take a bit of time to read around. it's all been discussed, and mostly recently.

    Leaford, Damn it Janet! LOL. I once had an art teacher come up to me while we were working, and said "Damn it Janet!" Then he apologized and said he just couldn't resist. Maybe I should find a picture of Damn it Janet from RHPS and make her my avitar (sp?). I still would have to figure out how to do that though. My brain can only take so much. This e-cig thing has turned into a major project! I have three e-cigs now and I rotate them, so they seem to be doing well. I like the pen style because it's cool-looking. I have decided to buy some e-liquid from E-Puffer in Canada. I ordered some Bickford extracts - went kind of crazy and spent too much money. I have learned from the forum to not use the ones with oil. Now I need an egg cup, syringe, little bottles, quality empty cartridges, an eye-dropper and a good recipe. I need a friggin laboratory! I live in Ohio and do not want to deal with overseas companies. I really want to learn the best way to clean the atomizers. Maybe this isn't the right place to ask this, but I did read about people using needles to clean the atomizer. That sounds kind of scary to me. I was thinking of using a mini bottle brush - about the size of a mascara brush. Sorry, I tend to ask a lot of questions and also make things more complicated than they really are. I just want to do the right thing.

    Tweezer, scissors, flashlight, magnifying glass, blacklight, baggies... Go to the nearest crack den and ask for extra supplies. :p

    No, it's not that kind of cleaning, I don't think you'll want the brush. Here's the post: Dr. Loi Scratch Technique

    We have a club... :cool:

    Jamie, you have a club? Alright! I will try to be good :rolleyes:. Please, everybody - just bear with me as I find my way around this club. To add to the real thread - I have tried dripping with my Njoy, but was not very impressed. The cartridges seem to work better.
