So I've been a bit frustrated with cartomizer issues in recent months as I'm sure all cartomizer users are. I decided to pick up a box of the IKV MEGA 510 Platinums Standard cartomizers in hopes of getting cartomizers that avoided the various "bogegate" issues, but I'm afraid I wasn't so lucky. At first I was excited, because I could see differences in the design of these cartomizers compared to the Boges I have. But then I went to fill it up, and it exhibited the same sort of hydrophobic issues. It took forever to fill it up, and it didn't seem to hold as much liquid as I expected. But then I had hopes again, because it seemed to vape well. So I punched a hole in it and stuck it in a tank. After another ml or so of juice went through it (somewhere in the neighborhood of 2-3ml total) the flavor seemed to just totally disappear. I wasn't getting much of a strange flavor per se, but I could barely taste my juice anymore. And then I started noticing the draw tightening up intermittently. Was it unreasonable of me to expect these to sidestep the vast cartomizer QA issues of late? Perhaps it's a coincidence?
