My Electronic Cigarette is Sucking too Much Air Through

Okay, let me explain.

When I started using the e-cig and filling up the cartomizers myself I had no problems at all, but as time went on it seemed that the cartomizer and battery weren’t joining together tightly enough, and this lack of a tight fit meant that when I sucked on it I could hear loads of air being sucked in through the join, and not a lot of vapour being created.

What I’ve found to be the problem is that grease off your fingers, dirt, etc gets into the threads that screw the 2 bits together, meaning the join isn’t as tight as it could be.

The Solution:

The fix is simple. All I did was got a bit of tissue paper, wet it (just damp, not dripping), and then held it over the end of the cartomizer.

I then got my thumbnail into the groove at the bottom of the thread and basically screwed my thumbnail around until I got to the top.

The result was loads of black oily stuff on the tissue.

I then got the tissue and screwed it into the end of the battery and screwed it around.

Then when I tried putting the 2 bits together again I got a much tighter fit, no more air being sucked through the side, and better vapour generation!

That’s the end of tip number 1 – I hope you find it useful!

About Me

My name is Dave and I live in England in the UK. I’ve been a 40 a day smoker for over 20 years, and I’ve decided that I need to stop smoking. But wanting to stop is nothing new for me. In the past I’ve tried just about everything to quit including nicotine patches, gum, lozenges, an inhalator, Zyban, Champix, and even hypnosis – and up to now nothing has worked. I did even try will power once but that only lasted for about 3 minutes! I don’t know why I’ve found it so tough to give up cigarettes in the past.
