Hey Markt welcome to the forum.

I think you mean Microcig... and yes both are refillable.... most cartomisers are.

On the shops website there are tutorials for filling the Clearomisers and Smokemisers on the product pages.

Smokemisers

Hope that helps

Ahhh good catch Drahcir ... forgot they were added here ....... condom filling method I suppose would work ... haven't tried them yet to know for sure.

You can lift the white cap off the top.... think there might be a silicone washer in there as well... pluck that out... and just drop some eliquid on the foam inside...put back together and vape on.

Just to add a bit of info to this - you don't have to remove the cap (in fact they are very difficult to remove cleanly. The best way of filling these is as follows:

Put 5 - 8 drops into one of the silicon covers that come with the carts. then push the cart slowly into the silicon cap first (it sounds strange, but is the best way of filling them!). Then remove the cart, blow through and put it back on the battery.

I recently got a microlite for those times when I don't want to be carrying a huge e-cig around and am very impressed with it. For a small device, it really chucks out the vapour, and being able to carry a fully assembled cig in the case is a real bonus.

The price is incredibly low too - 24.99 for the starter kit and 40 for 50 cartomisers is a bargain!

I have a similar kit no names though lol as im very ashamed but TW did not stock this at the time i got mine otherwise id be getting it form here.

I would like to say the easiest way to pop the white cap off cleanly is to get an office drawing pin. You know the ones with the big plastic ones yeah those ones lol

Then you stick it in the hole in the white cap now tilt the pin back in the hole as if you were going to pop out the white cap. DONT pop out the white cap this might damage it, although they are quite resilient. Once you get it tilted move the pin round in the hole it will loosen it up evenly and come out quite easily lol

I Love these wee beauties I only wish the batteries would last longer its my only wish  :D

Phil I was thinking of getting one of these as a back up as I love the case I was just wondering if you knew the capacity of the batteries and generally how long do you get on each fully charged before its dead

I think I know which brand you mean.. I wonder if they're the same carts as the TECC Micrlite carts? If so, a big saving to be had

I absolutely love the microlite - for the size it performs incredibly well. When I'm using it, I tend to use it like I would a cigarette rather than chain vape and find 1 battery lasts for 5 - 6 cigarettes worth of vaping. The case will charge 4 batteries so with the two it holds you get the equivalent of 6 batteries worth of charge in an incredibly small package, which should last most of the day

Hi all

I have had mine for nearly a week now and can say these are really good.

I moved from a tornado tank to this microlite kit and actually prefer it.

The microlite kit seems more efficient to use (in terms of liquid use) compared to the tornado kit.
With the tornado tank I had a few leaking issues and went through two tank full of liquid a day.

With this kit I am currently finding that I use most of the cartmoisers in a day and about 3 to four battery charges a day (not the main battery).

Regarding refilling :-
This is an ongoing experiment but overall yes they can be refilled.

So far the best method to refill is the condom method using the silicone squeezable lid with 5 - 8 drops of liquid.
Then once done I put another 5 - 8 drops in and do this for a second time.

So far so good and no leaks.
I did mod a few cartomiser's by drilling a hole in the plastic cap to 2.5mm, shoved the bottle in and filled this way but this can end up leaking.
The upside though is that there is no resistance to a draw and massive amounts of vapour can be produced with this method.

However not recommended if you want a cartomiser to last a long time and less refilling as you could vape the whole liquid very quickly.

So the silicone lid filling method certainly does work and so far I have refilled the cartomiser's several times.
I plan to use them until they go pop and then buy more cartomiser's.

In terms of liquid flavours I am using the Titan e-liquid.
Cola flavour is not recommended as this mixed with the tobacco cartomiser tastes like urine. urgh !
The titan tobacco flavour is nice and smoother compared to the pre-filled cartomiser taste.
I have double mint on order and I will report back how good or bad that flavour is.

so, to sum up, yes the cartmoisers can be refilled and used again and again and the kit is very good value for money.
Shame there isn't a refillable tank for these.

Hi Guys,

I'm still new to vaping - bought a TECC Microlite kit this week & am totally enjoying it, won't be buying any more baccy again.

This is a very interesting thread and am seriously considering trying to refill my spent cartomizers and it seems easy enough to do using the squeezable lid.

Because I've not refilled before, I haven't yet quite sussed out which liquid to use - am I right in assuming that, if I bought a bottle of T.W. Titan Fluid in a certain tobacco flavour, that this would be all I need, in other words, I could start refilling from that bottle without having to mix it with any other product? That these bottles contain nicotine & flavour?

Thanks.

I got mine in the mail on Monday and the condom method works well.  I have found that 4 to 6 drops works well any more I seem to get nic juice on the tip.  All and all it works pretty well doing it that way so far not sure how long they last refining them this way will last. I would like to hear from someone on how long they can be refilled before the stop working.

pretty much the same as any carto between 2 weeks of use and a month then it would need changed I would say aim for a decent 3 week period before you would need to change it but you have to remember that with these you would be rotating the cartos anyway since they dont hold allot of liquid so will probably need 3 or more for a days use depending on how much you use it

The microlite is a great bit of kit I use mine whenever I have to go out! I like the psychology of having a look a likey ciggie! And filling the carts couldn't be easier

+1 to the condom method above.....
No faffing removing caps and lids, and works very well.

I tend to use my Micro-lite when not at local pubs, or with friends (where they're all used to my 'contraptions'), especially when just want a quiet evening out.
I still get asked the odd interested questions, but when out with Odyssey, everyone seems interested !!!
(Note - Odyssey is great when clubbin, etc.. even at my ripe old age.  Try it... The amount of people that come up and strike a conversation is unreal)

I really like just quietly vaping with micro-lite in smoking areas as can be quite un-noticed.

I destroyed one cartomizer attempting to remove the white cap, then, assuming I just didn't do it right, carefully tried loosening a second one, hoping I could use that cap on both carts, but, much to my dismay, it also broke off, leaving the inner ring still inside the cart =( Now I have 2 destroyed carts, and I'm not comfortable with the condom method of filing, since it seems that lots of the juice will stay on top of the silicon ring, instead of down in the wadding, where it needs to be. I think I'll be ordering another type of ecig tomorrow. One with carts (or tanks) that are intended to be refilled.
I don't believe in signatures unless I'm endorsing a check.

i wonder if they are as hard to dismantle as the prefilled?
 I'll wait till they have them here at TW, since I'm in the US.

I am re filling mine with all sorts of goodies. this was my first purchase from TW and a bit of a bargain i think. Anyway once the first cart was empty i used the condom menthod to refill with raspberry 18mg juice fabby dabby doo. I use these when i feel the need to "fit in" with smokers, and when i am driving so as to not alarm the constabulary or my fellow motorists. Hahah.. i have purchased a vvv chrome wotsit and a little vv batt (cant remember name) as well. I have another large batt mod as well which i am using til the chrome torpedo arrives (?Mon - why oh why do i order on the weekend???)

Thanks for the link DD. I had seen that TECC now did the refillable cartos but though they were quite expensive in comparison to the prefilled ones. Now they're on yo-yo I think I might have a go if I can get a good discount  :D
