    Hey everyone,
    I just recently purchased a couple of Tanks from TotallyWicked and was wondering if you could tell me how to clean them? Is there a thread about this? Video?

    Thanks so much!

    I bought a kit and a five pack of the clear tanks to try it out. You can really tell that your tank needs cleaning if it's a clear one better than the ones that are all black. I take off the cap on the side that slides into the atomizer with my fingernail, then remove the cap (with the small hole in it) with the end of a paperclip. Then I remove the inner cap with the small hole in it (paperclip again). Running under hot water or shaking it around in 91% isopropyl alcohol if you want it really clean always does the trick. By the time I got to this point, I'm thinking that you are referring mainly to the atomizer. Did you mean the atomizer?

    Yeah I'm thinking about trying to somehow clean the atomizer part. I think I remember seeing a film on you tube that showed somebody taking the insides out with a pair of tweezers. I'd rather not go to all that trouble if possible.

    I bout two about a month ago. One died about a week ago, and the other just doesn't seem to vape as well. I've gone back to dripping the 510LR. Am I doing something wrong or do I just need to clean it?
