    Pull stuffing out of cart.
    Remove plunger from syringe.
    Place wet stuffing in syringe.
    Insert plunger and press while holding needle in container to remove juice. Then fish out the smashed stuffing.
    Works best if multiple carts are done together.

    Why do we want to remove juice from a cart in the first place? Seems like filling a totally dry cart procedure would be more important. Just askin'..SB

    Because when you get tired of fooling with old cart material you have usually just tried refilling it or it is still half filled but won't wick. It does lend an interesting flavor.

    So am I to understand that the fill material will be re-used after the extraction? I have only had one of these things for a week, I don't know. Seems like snaking out the old fill and tossing it for new fill, or a totally dry cart replacement makes easier sense. SB

    So far, I've been topping off the very first cart, but about an hour ago, I ran the 901 battery to dead and didn't notice before drawing in juice to the mouth, YUK! I considered popping the end cap and getting q-tips, etc. to fix it and continue, then I thought is far easier to grab another cart.

    To be clear, are you suggesting the residual juice in the old cart is desirable to keep for use, or to be thrown out? Thanks. Bob

    "Mystery Juice," the liquid recovered from used cartridges, is well-appreciated by vapers whose bottles have run dry.

    Sometimes it's even quite good, and attempting to guess which flavors have gone to make up the mix can be entertaining. At least it's much better than ashtray-diving for stale half-smoked ciggie butts.

    Man, that was gross. Did it ALL THE TIME. Yuck.

    undyingguitarist, It's not something you do with every cart change. As I change filler, I just stick them in a little bottle/jar until it gets full. Then I squeeze out the juice and toss them. I don't bother washing cart filler. It's too cheap to replace.
