    During my cartomizer vaping experience, it was pretty much up and down (and I believe everyone gets that too) and the downs are really once in a while. Just one of those bad carto times, and then I just change them out and they did be fine. As long as you're getting vapor, some flavor, then you're good!

    Rul, I guess the only facts we can gather are mostly opinion-based due to a lack of sufficient testing and research, but I guess for everyone else there, if your vape is good for you then stick to it :vapor:

    Hey guys! Got a question up about genesis attys.

    I've been noticing that there's black stuff around my coils after about a day of using them. I don't know whether it is because of this black stuff, but then it doesn't fire up occasionally. So what I do is that i have to remove these black stuff.

    Could it be due to the tightness of the coils on the ss wick? Or is it because I'm not doing something right?

    Thanks in advance for the answer :D

    Black stuff is aka gunk. Happens due to combustion of juice. The vg and sweet stuff gets burn n leaves gunk there. Usually dark color and sweet flavours gunks the most. But all juice will gunk coil sooner or later so... Yuh its normal. My belgian cocoa gunk my penelope in 2 days.

    Also i would prefer kanger than boge.
    Kanger draws a lil tighter than boge and hits warmer and harder due to the fact that ii is horizontal coil. (coil sits directly below airhole straw)
    My explaination for prefer kanger over boge is also simple, see picture.
    Boge's coil touches the filler directly and is hollow (no wick in between the coil. coil is also touching filler directly... meaning filler would tend to get burnt more easily.)
    Kanger has a wick which touches a surrounding wick which is then surrounded by filler.
    Boge (used)

    ALso if u notice, boge's coil is in the middle and u will have gravity so ur juice will sit at the bottom most of the time...
    Kanger (new)
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Coil is at bottom so its fine. only problem is kanger is slightly shorter than boge so tanks made for boge will still fit kanger but the ss tube may cut the inner orings.

    However, boge gives a smoother vape. that i have to say.
    Vaping burnt filler anyone? xD

    Vaping on dark juice, or juice with much sweetener in them will accelerate the gunk, one way is to dryburn them. Let it grow red for 3 secs, stop. Rinse and repeat a couple of times and you're good to go. I usually just change to a new coil, nothing beats a freshly coil wick, in terms of flavors and taste.

    Ahhh, but then I just realized that it could be due to the tightness of the oils. Cause yesterday, there were lesser (like way lot lesser) black stuff on the wick :3

    Cleaning carto by- soak / dry burnt / flashing .
    may work once or twice, but it may also kill it.

    Err there is not much ways to clean a carto. Do not dry burn as u may burn the poly fill instead. U can do it for kanger cartos though. Dry burning and.flashing works best for attys. Carto cleaning best method would be soaking in alcohol whilst in a ultra sonic cleaner.

    Hello people, pls help me out on this. I'm trying out with the kanger 510 cartomiser and the experience is really inconsistent.

    I filled up using condom method, with a few more drips from the top of the carto going into the side. My first experience is using a 50/50 12mg juice and i got very heated vape which hits my throat terribly and with little vaper produced. My second experience is using another 50/50, but 6mg juice and this time round the experience was very smooth and good.

    I doubt its due to the nic level from the juice right?

    Seems like a case of burnt poly fill. Ditch the carto and use a fresh one out of the packing..

    Seem like that's the case. Tried another carto with the same 12mg juice and got it perfectly working. What a pity to the spoilt carto and the filled juice. Anyway thanks for the response! :)
