    V4L has a drip tip that the description says “This drip tip is aluminum construction and designed to work with our cartomizers.” How do you use them? I didn't know you could use a drip tip with a cartomizer. :?: :confused:

    I use drip tips sometimes with my cartomizers that have the filling in them. I just drip on an angle I do fill them first before putting them on a mod. I drip just to keep them topped off. I found the drip tips do not work well for me with the ceramic cartomizers though.

    You remove the top cap and put on the drip-tip. I like doing this even with clearomizers and carto's as well. Not only can you top it off, I feel it gives you better air flow and draw.

    I never drip into them because I find the drops tend to go directly down the center tube and leak out the batt end of the carto. Not good for me cuz I use auto batts. The reason I use them is twofold. First, I use them in place of the little white rubber cap, so I don't have to look around for a paperclip every time I want to refill. Second, they are a must, when using my 5V GLV2. If I didn't use them, I'd burn my lips for sure!

    I just use them because it's quicker and easier to remove than the little rubber cap. But I don't like the aluminum- feels weird to me. I like the little plastic delrin drip tips.

    I use my Super T drip tips on cartos because they just look so nice. I manage a bar, so looking stylish is always a consideration for me.

    I use them with my cartos for the change in color. I can coordinate to my outfit.

    I'm such a girl! :blush:

    I agree, it is much easier to refill and the delrin plastic drip tips are easier on your teeth.

    I started using drip tips on cartomizers to make it more convenient to pull it off to refill. But after a while I realized that if I used a 3/8 drill sharpened to a 90° included angle and drilled up from the bottom of the delrin drip tip until it tapered out the bottom nearly to the edge then used a sharpened dowel in a drill to polish the taper it would proivde a ramp surface. Now I can hold the carto at a steep angle, about 15° from vertical, and drip into it and the juice clings to the side of the tip and runs down the side of the carto. You have to be careful because you can't see the batting getting wet but if you know how much it takes normally to top off when you decide it is needed you don't have to remove the tip.
