Now that Rob is about to start carrying these, I thought it might be helpful to point out some things that longtime CE2 users like me are all too familiar with. PRE-CLEANING is sometimes required I've said it before, and still believe that if a CE2 is clean, I think its the purest taste you'll get from any atty. RoyalSmokers (the manufacturer) has perfected these things for the most part. That said, RS has not, as far as I've seen yet, perfected the art of fully washing off the wick material before boxing them up and shipping them out. Its a bit like having to blow the primer out of a standard atty. I've received a grand total of ONE CE2 in all my time with them, that tasted just fine, without me washing it first. That was the one that Rob sent me with the SSR to try out. I didn't bother boiling that one first, primarily because I was just super excited and forgot. And it tasted fine, for whatever reason. In fact, the same day I got the SSR, I placed an order with another vendor, for a box of clearomizers (as backup atties for the SSR). I thought "Rob's tasted fine, so maybe RS has figured out that they need to wash em", so I tried one, and sure enough, it tasted like S#!T. This has turned a lot of people off of ceramics, since their beginnings. Fortunately for me, when I first tried them and thought it was nasty, I had ECF, and a quick search told me to boil em first if they taste weird - as soon as I did that, I went from wanting to gag, to vaping perfection. And ALWAYS do several dry burns before filling. And thats really all you need to do. (with clearomizers, pull off the clear plastic tube before you boil em - the tube might melt in there, Idunno) I'm going to be putting together a video that touches on this, and other cleaning/maintenance techniques, but I thought just in case I don't get to that in time, I should point that out here. Rob will have zero control over how clearomizers arrive to him, and I'd hate to see anyone get turned off, upon their first puff, by this easily-fixed issue!
