    Does this method work for the newer ones with the metal spike at the top?

    I don't think I have one with a metal spike on top to try out. Steeljan mentioned to me she had one with some sort of brass spike so I guess I need to order more to find out! Anyone know where there are pictures of the spike? (I'm curious. I assume its to help prevent leaking if it fits into the mouthpiece?)

    That said, if the tank is put together the same way, there shouldn't be a problem. Only one way to find out, of course!

    Looks like it's designed to make sure the mouth piece centers each time. Nice upgrade.

    Coneheads!!! I guess it helps with sealing/leaking and makes filling easier--i.e., more difficult to get juice in the center tube. I have heard those coneheads can give a harsh TH, though, until it's broken in. Interesting!

    I think the cone is added to make filling easier, and to prevent any liquid that condenses in the tip from running down the center hole. You do need to loosen the tip periodically to let it drain back into the tank.

    It was mentioned somewhere that it was to keep the tip aligned to aid airflow.

    I can now fill it in a dark room. Super easy to fill now, without having to blow ejuice out of the airway.

    yes the latest batches are much improved all around and new metal tip is fanastic.

    My DIY menthol and GV menthol mania are there, crushed caramel apple is just a bit less.

    Regarding the confusion on coneheads, Steeljan came to the rescue!

    My LR Stardust was a little "funny" at first. It did break in. I also have the standard Stardust with the top cone, and it was fine. I only had one of the LR's "funny" though.

    i never had issues with juice getting in the center, but I've always tilted it to fill. I will admit that the new metal top cone allows me to just fill without tilting. :)

    I actually had never heard of her, until she did that Ultimo review, but I really like her humor. She has enjoyable videos. Also, she subscribed to me! YAY! Jan, you rock!

    You rock too Robbie!

    Hey, GV just attracts people who rock! :lol:

    Not sure if that's a good thing. Anyone get the old juice in mouth/gurgle syndrome?

    Going to hold onto my flat head washers just in case.

    I have only used 1 of the new ones for about a week. I haven't had any juice leak into my mouth so far. After using it you can unscrew the tip and see a little juice fall back into the tank. Not sure why, but it hasn't hurt anything.

    Actually that makes sense. While the design with the cone heads has to trap condensation, I usually top of every 1/2 to 3/4 ml so the top is popped often enough to prevent a large build up perhaps.
