    hahahahaha-- now that is really putting your 2cents worth in !!!!!!!! -- hahahahah

    i think I read somewhere that someone else put a washer into the bottom to build up the gap a bit too --- hahahaha

    Please be careful ----

    the holes are in the bottom of the battery section for safety measure and should not be blocked --

    in case of battery failure, the battery will vent down thru these holes.

    Regarding the LR 510 attys:

    I've been using the "rinse and dry-burn" method for cleaning them, and I must say they hold up far better then the stock Joye 510 attys I've used in the past. I dry-burn these puppies on a 2AA box mod (14500 battery), and I haven't lost one yet... no matter how long I kept the coil red hot.

    As a side-note, I tried the blue Crest Pro Health rinse on some 510 cartomizers and didn't like it at all. The minty after-taste stayed in the carto even after several refills. It might be ok for attys, but for cartos I think hot water or PGA is still the best way to rinse.

    Be careful using those pennys sanford, if they happen to move and you short those two stacked batteries your using they could discharge or vent on you. The spring thing I speak of is only to help Eastmall customers not hurt anyone especially when stacking batteries, try this one I speak of if you get a chance to, it works extremely well and you will be able to run almost any manufacturers Batts including the exceptional ones Eastmall makes, in fact the Eastmall 16340 runs great like this.

    yes, I do the rinse, blow out and dry burn for attys

    I have never cleaned a cartomizer,

    I use them and refill them about 10 times,

    then consider them near to death, and I chuck 'em -------

    thanks matt

    everyone must always be aware of safety when using any battery

    but especially when using 2 (stacked) battery options,

    please be careful guys,

    and always use protected batteries,

    there is a reason for the protection ------

    and a reason for the vent holes,

    do not block these holes.

    Nice Trick from Wael ---- Rid The Flowery taste Juice

    Di Check this out!

    when i brought the Dekang tobacco flavors for my father
    he really could not stand how strong the perfume taste was on some of them ,
    so he did a trick and it worked!

    he took the bottles covers completely out , the bottles were fully open ,
    and left it like that over night , he thought that the perfume thing will fly out
    as it could be alcoholy stuff , and guess what , it worked

    he couldn't stand a puff from the RY4, now he vapes it and enjoy!

    mabey someone else can try it and tell us if it works with him too!

    = = = = = = = = = = = == = == = = = = = == == = = = = = = = = = = =
    And From Di -----

    Yes, wael,

    I did it with a brand new bottle of RY4

    I opened it and vaped it last night --

    then I left it open, with no caps or dripper tip,

    and this morning --

    wow, yes, the taste is different for sure,

    that sweet, flowery taste is gone,

    it is different for sure,

    I dont know what this is doing,

    maybe it is something in the PG that is evaporating out ----

    but it is deffinately a more defined taste,--
    that sweet taste is gone and now I have a nice mellow RY4 taste.

    I do like this,

    I will try it with my Camel, Marlboro and Tobacco flavours as well.

    BY THE WAY --

    get some Cigar for your father to try--

    I loooooooooooove this cigar

    and he can add a bit to other flavors to harden them up a bit.

    I once read one of your posts about removing some of the filler out of a cartomizer, and it then giving a better TH. :confused: I searched for it, and could not find it. :mad: Can you enlighten us again with that info. :D

    What made me remember your post is that I am using two 510 cartomizers at the moment. The TH on one is just much better than the other one. I had a look inside, and the one has much more filler in than the other one. :?:

    with cartoz and cartridges

    sometimes I find the wool inside is packed pretty tight in there

    cartridges -----
    I pull the wool out and cut a bit off down the side length and fluff it up a bit and put it back -- it draws easier and fills more and I like it better--

    cartoz -
    I tease a bit of the filler out with needle nose tweezers, then spread the rest around in there --
    seems to help a bit with the draw and th ..............

    with cartoz tho -- be careful - do not damage the wire thread in there --

    Nevermind! Selena answered this on another thread. Thanks, Selena!

    Is there a benefit to removing the wick? Or why else would one want to do that? I know someone knowledgable will fill me in.. :)

    I removed the wick from one of my regular 510 and another on LR510. It helps to remove the burning taste and at the same time the vapor diminished too. I guess i have just killed two atties.

    Yeah better dont do it if your atty is working fine. But it does get rid of the burning taste. Maybe i was unlucky to remove the vapor as well. Now i am waiting for my LR atties to arrive. Btw, i am using the joye 510 atties now from the 510 kit. I noticed the vapor is alot less compared to the Riva 510 atties. Vapor also is not as warm as the Riva's and not much TH. Tried 6 atties from 3 kits so far (I ordered the 6 kits special). I even put on the atties on my Riva to be sure and it is with the same result. Is the joye 510 atties supposed to be like this? I think i am gonna stick with the Riva or LR atties.

    Ps. I am not trying to defame EM or anything. Just want to be sure whether it's supposed to be like this. Maybe i am spoiled by the LR atties. I also notice the stock Riva 510 atties gives as much vapor and TH as the LR510 atty. Already ordered myself somemore stock Riva atties together with a bunch of LRs.

    different attys by different makers will have slightly different performance- this is normal.

    the Riva attys are made for Riva and are slightly different from the Joye 510 attys.

    when you find your bliss - you stick with it -

    I adore the 801 regular atty the LR510 EM atty and the 901 LR atty

    I have not tried the LR801 yet, but I am sure I will love it too. Di -----

    Yes, i listened to your advice and got those LR801 and LR901. I am sure they will be great together with the LR510. I also ordered another set of Riva. Really love the Riva. Was planning to order Indulgence but cant wait for the restock.
