    Hey guys,

    So heres a small tip that some of you know, and some of you does not.

    I myself hadnt actually read this part of the manual when i first started out, so i had resorted to a million different ways of cleaning my atomizers - and they all had some good points, and some bad.

    However, after speaking with Thor, from today, he told me that i should just do what the manual says, and so i did - and it brought back the taste in 20 (!) of my 801 atomizers that i had otherwise deemed awful.

    Mind you, it did NOT bring them back to life (as they were working but tasted horribly) - but it did restore them to actually a condition where they tasted like new ( without the primer.. ew )

    So for those of you, like me, that sometimes skips the manuals, here we go:

    Take your atomizer, - put it under hot water and rinse it. You dont have to do it excessively, just rinse it out over the course of 20 seconds or so.

    Then blow at both ends of your atomizer till it appears dry, and you cant see it "sprays" out water on a piece of tissue.

    Then insert your atomizer into any vaping device you have - THAT RUNS 3.7 VOLT (do NOT do this with higher voltage devices )- and in the case of a Jantystick, then push the button and let it hit cutoff, WHILE you blow air into the atomizer with your mouth. Do not have the filter on for this ofcourse.

    Now, this will smell funny - none the less, keep a finger on your atomizer, while you do this (if it gets overly hot, let it cool down for a bit before continuing), and do it up to 4 times - till the cutoff is hit ( for those without a cutoff, thats around 12 seconds ) - keep blowing air from your mouth onto your atomizer during the entire button-pressing-stage of this.

    Once youre done, you drip 5 drops of any liquid you want into the atomizer, - let it rest for a minute, then try to take a hit. If it still tastes bad, put two more drops in - if it still tastes bad, add one more drop and do this until it tastes good.

    Notice: After you put in the 5 drops, after initial burn-cleaning, make sure you DO taste if its good, this varies on atomizers. Some work right there, some dont. Also make sure you dont drown your atomizer. If the taste is there, and you get almost no vape, then its almost drowned.

    Once you get it going, add 2-3 drops everytime you need to redrip - or if you use carts; you know what to do.

    Happy vaping, and let me know your results!

    -- Even though this IS part of the manual, i will not officially take any responsability for any damage you cause by this process to you, your atomizer, you PV, your cat, your lawn, your neighbours girlfriend, or anything else that could be harmed, or destroyed ( or broken ) while doing this!

    -- But i doubt it will get to that point :D

    Hehehe, well i do too - but sometimes you forget, like when you get your first e-cigarette ever and it just works! And when you then upgrade to the Jantystick, and that blows your mind, you kinda forget there is a manual...

    But yes, it does work!

    maybe you should try soak with vodka,it's work better than hot water for me.
    step of process like Mik said but change your solvent from hot water to Vodka and when you try to dry atty, it's easy to do as put your soak atty behind air flow out of your labtop computer about 5min hot air from your labtop make it dry that it.(or maybe use some blower or hair drier instead of)

    Is this also the preferred method for cleaning the eGo atomizers?

    Hey Smitty,

    Yes it is.

    Allthough the above is done at your own risk - i forgot to mention that before. However, if your atomizer is fine and it isnt broken, damaged, then this procedure should not do anything to it, except get it back to a working state.

    I used this technique with my blu atty's that were tasting kind of burnt. Worked like a charm! No button to press as it's auto but just blowing directly on the atty that's connected to a battery will do the trick. I'm getting a Tornado in the mail and will definitely be using this method.

    Good to hear :)

    However, i hope you do realise that your tornado is not a Janty product, but a Janty eGo clone, meaning that it is not something we cover, warranty wise, or support wise on this forum seeing as it is a rebrand of the original Janty eGo product. Just FYI!

    Seems that we would rather vape than read manuals. I just tried this method to clean up the atty, works great!

    Take off the cart, unscrew the atty from the batt, cover the cart side with a tissue or paper towel, blow into the battery side of the atty (not too hard), repeat until u have no liquid coming out.

    Heres what i do:

    1. Boil 1 1/2 inchs of water in LOW PROFILE glass jar, microwave (120 seconds).

    2. Drop atty in glass with long spoon or such (be carefull, it will boil up when you drop it in).

    3. Let set for 15 or so minutes to loosen particales, run cold water in glass, take out and blow them out.

    4. Put 1 1/2 inchs of water back in glass and this time put the atty in the glass for 120 seconds in microwave, when it starts boiling this time, it will work like a jet stream blowing the boiling water thru the end of the atty.

    5. Let cool or run cold water over it, blow it out good and let it set over nite or blow dry for 15 or so minutes, either way works for me.

    P.S. I haven't had to dry burn one yet, I do this about every 3 or 4 days, just depends.

    BE CAREFUL......if you do this.....

    I don't Blow Smoke I VAPE!!!

    You can put metal into the microwave, if it is covered with water. The metal itself will not heat, but the water around it will.
    Try at your own risk, of course.

    I just dont see a reason to take the chance, when you can do it the way i described to be honest...

    Well, tell the truth, neither do I, I was merely reacting to the "you can't put metal into the microwave".
