I've been vaping now for just about 2 months. So far I've enjoyed it, but it has taken a bit of a learning curve. After reading a lot on here and getting recommendations, I've settled in with the following set-up: eGo-C Twist w/ 1000 mah battery - usually running @ 4.0v IBTanked 19mm tall tank, using Smoktek XL 510 LR cartomizers (w/ 2 laser punches) Liquids usually at 50/50, 12mg nicotine Baditude turned me on to the IBTanked set-up, and I find that I get the best results using it. Not only for the taste and vapor I get from it, but also because it can handle the cinnamon and fruit juices I've been enjoying lately. I've been using an iClear16 clearomizer for all other juices. However, I have noticed that after about 3-5 days of using the cartomizer, they tend to flood on me pretty regularly. It's this problem that has me irritated. When putting in a new carto, I always use the "play with your thingy" method to make sure the carto is filled with juice before first firing. But like I said, I'm finding after just 2 cartos that I get the gurgling liquid problem after just 3-5 days. When it floods, I blow it out into a paper towel as recommended here. That seems to take care of the problem for about 1-2 hours of vaping. But it floods right back again very soon afterwards. Again, I just get the liquid coming into the draw - no burning. My question is if there is a way to avoid this and help extend the life of the carto. Would it help to not fill the tank so much? What about cleaning out the carto using a connection between the carto and a syringe to draw distilled water back and forth thru it? Is it possibly caused by the force of the draw? I'd appreciate any helpful feedback so that I can enjoy my carto set-up longer.
