    I need a question answered................can you actually clean the Aspire Maxi heads or use them more than once?

    I was using one, cleaned it and let it dry and today; changed out that one to use the cleaned one and all I have got off this is dry burnt hits. I have it on the spinner and haven't had it above 3.8 and it tastes horrible. I dropped it down to 3.3 and the same thing.

    It hasn't been all day but it has been throughout the day and all of this afternoon and it is all I have until I get home.

    It changes my mind on these if they only work once or cannot be cleaned.

    I'm using 3 different styles of the Aspire BDC head and simply let them soak a bit in vodka or ever clear. Take them out let them sit a few minutes and load it up again. I getting 3 to 5 weeks out of a head usually. Now I have gotten a couple that where bad out of the package. If you do a search of RiP Trippers you tube videos he has a video on rebuilding them. He has another on rebuilding the Nautilus heads as a single with cotton wick.

    Maybe I just have a bad one then, this is awful and it isn't stopping.

    I am not sure if it is just not wicking or what but it is unbearable. I am just going to have to tough it out for another hour and a half.

    I have other options at home so I am not dead in the water but I have never had a clearo that just kept giving a dry hit.....maybe once in a while but not like this.

    I have a couple that I have rinsed out and no problems. I washed with hot water, toke the heads off, dryed the inside out and let them dry all night and they work like a charm. Good luck

    I'm still on the original coil for 2 months, waiting for it to go bad so I can try replacing it. I've vaped over 100ml, and every once in a while after filling, I get dry burn hits. I solved this by laying it on its side for a few minutes. May be just me, but when really full, it seems to have trouble soaking the wicks properly. Seems to happen more frequently recently, so I will probably try a new coil.

    Having said that, I have rinsed it out every 2 weeks or so, when I change flavors. The coil seems almost indestructible. I'm using the one with the stainless tip.

    I took the vodka advice and let it dry out. I have three currently in rotation so we are going to try "take 2" when I get back to that coil.

    It was pretty full so it could have been too.

    It has only been that one and I have had zero issues with any of the others and I bought more so that should say something :)

    So far I've not had any fail from Smokeless Image in their version of the Aspire Line however I did have one fail after cleaning due to the seal ring on an Aspire Nautilus on the second cleaning. Oh and this one is 510 treaded. One thing I would like to find is an adapter from ego/510 to ego/808 so I could also use the SI line of Aspire's on my Vamo V5 or other devices like it. I have actually purchase on of the 3 sizes I have in 808 in 501 so I could use the clearomizer by changing just the bottoms.

    The Vodka or Everclear work great. Let the atomizer soak for awhile then soak them again in hot'll be amazed how clean they get.

    Good Luck to You.

    Funny you should mention the adapter because I wish I could find an adapter to use my SI Spinner on my "other guys brand" glassomizer.

    I got a 808 to 510 and although I can make it work (by not tightening the adapter down too much and covering the air holes) on my larger glassomizer, the mini version threads on the outside and I can't make it work. If there is no coil, it does screw on the bottom threads (where the cone goes) of the SI Spinner but it won't work otherwise. I assume that means I need 808 to ego but I haven't found that or I just bought the wrong 808 to 510 but it is hard to tell what I really need without making a string of 7 adapters on the end of the battery.

    I will likely just buy "the other guy's brand" of spinning variable voltage. Shame really :(
