    Just got this yesterday and attempted to play with it last night.
    Maybe I am not doing it right, not sure..

    here is the link to it:

    $7.47 Authentic X8 2.5ml Electronic Cigarette Atomizer at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    amazingly, it has a glass tank.. so when I took it out the packaging, I was like wow!!

    I managed to get.. well check my pix.. but I did get some juice in.. let it soak for a bit..

    I go to take a vape.. the draw is so stiff.

    I can taste my juice, no problem there, but no vapor on exhale..

    I am sitting here, wondering what am I not doing, as I am sure this is a sweet lil tank.. :p

    hmm **grabs my hallo chocolate coffee and vapes and waits for help.. IMG_20130610_162154.jpg IMG_20130611_071704.jpg IMG_20130611_071744.jpg

    *note.. it's sitting on my twist right now, but I did have it on my ego 1300mah.. if that helps..

    the funny thing is it's got tiny screws, one to lock in onto the carto, and one to fill the juice..

    it's a cute thing, just wished it would be nice to me!! :laugh:

    well it looks like a cartotank, you can probably put your own cartomizer in there if you don't like the one included.

    It's not that I don't like it, I can't get any vapor to go right.. :/

    can't tell if it's the carto or??

    Would I need to enlarge the hole on the carto?? Something isn't working right..

    um.

    Pop the drip tip off. do you see something like this?

    Then it's probably vaping like crap because you need to prime that by dripping some liquid in there.

    what is the res. of the carto? if you have a meter, stick 1 lead into the ceter with the other lead going to the outside of the threads and that will give you the res of the coil inside. i have found that dual coil cartos suck on pretty much everything i have tried under 5v, so you may have a dual coil carto in there.

    well then i don't know what to tell you. widening the hole inside the tank won't improve airflow. the air flow is on the bottom, in the side of the connector threads.

    i see from the link that they say irs 2.5 ohm. more than likely, its closer to 3 ohm(chinese are notoriously inaccurate on res readings) IMHO. maybe try a single coil carto in there and see how it works.

    I have several and have no problems with them. it's just a tank with a 33mm standard res. carto in it. if you prepped the carto part correctly, it should be working. try leaving the fill screw off for a few drawls,

    would I need to pop a hole into a new carto??

    I did get some replacement cartos for it, but I also have some other different ones, without holes.

    for the cartos with holes already, you would just need to install and prime them. for the ones without holes, you would need to punch one or however many you wanted based on juice viscosity. you could try priming the carto in there. remove the tank, cover the hole at the bottom (threaded area) with ur thumb, and give it i few quick draws, and make note of the bubbles coming out of the hole in the carto. that tells u that juice is getting to the poly fill inside. dont worry if you flood it a little, u can always turn the tank upwards (so the hole in the cart is no longer in juice,) and give a few blows into a napkin to get any fluid out of the airhole inside.

    then the carto may be damaged. try one of your spares.

    with the tank off, hold it up to a light and make sure you can still see through the center hole (with drip tip off) if not, you may just have a stinker carto. its rare, but it happens. you can try to open it up a bit with a paperclip so you can see through it. if the poly fill has collapsed, and the paperclip doesnt work, i would try a new carto.
