510 carts: has anyone successfully dyed / painted / stickered them a different colour?

    I seem to be in that minority of vapers who care MORE--not less--about the aesthetics of their ecig as they go...

    I recently bought a metallic red 510 (battery + atomizer) whose look I adore...except for the clunky black cartridge at the end!

    I tried giving a white 510 cart a 48-hour bath in some red food dye, but of course the plastic didn't take the colour at all. Oh well--worth a shot. :rolleyes:

    The only thread I've been able to find about this is called "510 colored carts? tan?" (sorry, can't post links yet). A responder mentioned LeCig's soft cartomizers (which admittedly look pretty awesome if you're after the tan filter look). However, I like the performance of the normal 510 atomizers and don't want to give them up.

    I guess I could keep my ecig one colour by tailpiping (hee hee--love that term!), but I prefer the convenience of carts to dripping.

    So...has anybody found a solution to the problem of 510 cart colours?


    • Are there any vendors out there who sell 510-compatible carts in colours besides white and black?
    • Has anybody found a non-toxic paint/nail polish/dye/sticker/what-have-you that did the trick?

    Thanks!

    Your other option would be a red drip tip.

    That's a good idea, guitarman023! Can you point me in the right direction?

    Also, if anybody has a photo of an assembled 510 with a matching colour drip tip on it, that would be wonderful!

    here's the site I was going to direct you to, but it looks like they're out of stock. I would email them and see when they'll have them back in.

    Ooo, those look pretty good! Other drip tips I've seen were too tapered/hour-glass shaped for my liking, but those are ones I might be interested in. --Thanks for passing that along!

    I'd love to see a picture of a 510 with one of those on the end, if anybody has one. I have a hard time visualizing things... :)
