    hi,

    been vaping for almost 2 yrs, and am using smoke tip batteries and cartridges. I've been refilling the used cartomizers since i have accumulated quite a few in the very beginning of my vaping years. However, i currently looking for refillable cartos. I know the smoketip battery is a KR808D1 with 180 mAh. I'm looking for the type that is pictured here:

    Cartomizer-without-Cotton-KR-808D-1-.jpg


    can anyone help me with finding out what kind this is and where i can buy it? thanks in advance!

    Wish I could help, but I've never seen those in my life! Are you totally hooked on those or can you switch to something more readily available?
    Most place sell 808D blank cartos to fill yourself. I know Vaporkings.com has a couple of brands, and I suspect almost any large online retailer will as well.

    Those pictured look like CE3 clearomizers to me. No filler and look like they need to be filled with a needle/syringe.

    Smokeless Image Smokeless Image | The Best Electronic Cigarette sells a couple of varieties. The CE3 and the easier to fill Nano. Both are 808-threaded that should work on the OP's batteries.

    Hello :) cig easy has a variety of things for kr808. Smokeless image and vapor4 life might be places to look as well. Sorry for the lack of links. My pc is down.

    I'll second the recommendation for the Vision Nano. Both it and the CE3 are clearomizers, rather than cartomizres but they are much easier to fill than cartos. The Nanos are extremely easy to fill (the CE3 needs to be filled upside down with an included syringe...) and they are what I use on my 510 batteries if I want a more stealthy vape.

    Just make sure you order the 808 threaded versions as most places that sell them will also have the 510 threaded ones...

    thank you very much for all of your replies guys...as well as pointing me in the right direction!
    BTW, what is the difference between clearomizers and cartomizers? do you think the smoketip battery has enough power for the clearomizer?

    Yes, you can use clearomizers on your Smoketip battery. The CE3 and Nano will be the same diameter as your battery. The regular clearomizers (808-threaded) will be a little larger in diameter, but they will screw on and work, and look a little top heavy on the cigalike.

    I've made a picture dictionary of the more common juice delivery attachments in this blog article:

    http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/blogs/baditude/3230-1-proper-terminology-carto-tank-what-primer-juice-delivery-attachments.html

    Basically, they vary in construction and what method they use to draw e-liquid to the heating coils. Cartomizers use a wad of filler to hold and wick the juice to the heating element. Clearomizers use silica string wicks to draw the e-liquid to the heating coil.

    Clearomizers can be further classified as either top-coil top-wicked or bottom-coil bottom-wicked.

    All deliver a slightly different vapor experience, and vapors that have tried different varieties tend to like one over another. Having choices is a good thing.

    Cigalikes are not my world, at least recently, but the suggestions in the previous posts look excellent. Is there some reason you need to stay with the cigalikes? There are a lot of options in the 510 devices, I think, and include improved features and options. Longer battery life and variety and selection of toppers is why many choose the ego style (about the size of a sharpie pen) battery. Just something to consider while looking at your upgrade options. The best device, though, is the one that keeps you vaping, and off the analogs. Best to you!

    thanks again for the replies!

    billbeckusa: i'm staying with the KR808 mainly b/c of smoketip's lifetime warranty. I've had a few batteries that have gone bad on me over time and was able to get them replaced by them for free. Also, i like how they look like a regular cig so i dont get asked questions about them when using them in public ;)
