    I put this in the general forum, as well, because it doesn't seem like this one gets a lot of use and I have been asked who to do this by lots of people.

    306 first, then 510!

    Be warned : I am not responsible for any damage you may do to your atomizers or devices or any bodily injury you may sustain if you do this. This is not the INTENDED treatment or use of electronic cigarette atomizers and if you ruin your atomizers, blow up your house or kill your cat while doing this, It's on you.

    was gonna ask the same thing, king. Just quicker wicking for drips, no soaking in?

    well

    Sometimes the 306 will start to get a burnt taste to it (the 510 will do this, too) and that's usually because the wick at the top is burning up, I believe. De-bridging the atomizer removes that burning taste and seems to increase the vapor output and throat hit.

    At least that's my experience ;)

    Gotcha. Well definitely an easy fix to that problem :)

    Thanks, Terraphon!

    I've been considering this for a while with my 510s because I noticed they vape better if I drip the juice down the sides of the atomizer instead of through the drip tip. I just tried this on one of my 510s and it seems to be working great. The cup *did* pull about a third way up the tube but went back down with a light touch

    Yes, that's exactly what I was talking about. They often pull up like that but will go back to their normal position with just a very light push.

    I find that, for dripping, this is the way to go. It seems to take less juice to get a good response because it doesn't have to soak through the mesh on the bridge.

    Also, with hotter burning 306 atomizers, this is a MUST because they'll give that nasty burning taste the first time you light them up.

    thanks, I actually didn't realize my old volcano that I had was a 306, I didn't know what a 306 looked like! (yeah I didn't dig too far admittedly either) but this is awesome! thanks!
