    I think I read somewhere that SS cartos are recyclable. Where would I take/send them to be recycled?

    Send me your checks, your money orders...send me your nice green cash....but please, do not send me your used cartos....I lift my lamp beside the golden door! :facepalm: :ohmy:

    Seriously, you can recycle your cartos in your community recycle bins!

    Sorry Susie, I misread the question, and thought it was a battery question. I thought Steve might have a suggestion on dead battery recycling.

    No more "cute" answers for me today!

    You can recycle them in your regular recycle.

    If you are only using them once, you can send them to me. :)
    I'll PIF them.

    you keep an empty aluminum can on your desk.....just drop your used up cartos in the can.....they are made of aluminum.....any other substance in them will burn off in the smelting process....

    Thanks, that was my next question!

    By the way, they are so beautifully made and have so much metal in them . . . I'm very glad there's an option other than throwing them away when they die.

    you know....I was just thinking about this......and well.....I'm not really sure how sanitary that would be? Especially if someone like me sends them to you.......you know....someone who sits here all day typing and what not so your vaping hands free......which.....no delicate way to put this......means you tend to end up with saliva inside the cartos......hence the term...."drooling idiot".....LOL!

    LOL Ya know, I was thinking the same thing. And while I'd be sure to boil them etc, it probably wouldn't be a good idea. I get kind of enthusiastic about SmokeStik cartos and I hear about people out there complaining about life expectancy and burning and all the other stuff. And keep telling em to try the SS.

    If I didn't know better, I'd swear you guys use a lower resistance carto and yet somehow keep them from burning. It's the magic of SmokeStik.

    I think I'll reconsider PIFing used ones. :)

    I'd say boiling and soaking in alcohol would kill most of the "bad things", if not all. But its sorta gross now that I think of it.

    Yeah, I'm not gonna do it. Calmer (and more sanitary) minds have prevailed. :)

    is there such a thing as a sanitary mind?????

    I don't drool, but my husband does(it's always sticking out of the corner of his mouth). I won't even use his. They get trashed!

    It isnt lower resistance......it's higher more consistant voltage from the batteries. And a realistic cutoff time. You set your cutoff at 10-13 seconds....anything is going to burn. I have said it many times before....if you want to Holy Grail of cartomizers......learn how to use an atomizer.

    tweet tweet........and if we lowered the resistance.....then you would burn through juice much faster......and we would get nothing but complaints about the cartos not lasting.......it's all a big cosmic co-mingling of factors......you can't seperate out one thing and think it will improve performance.....it all has to mesh.


    but what the hell do I know? I'm just the chick that answers the phone............
