Cleaning the atomiser in an eGo-C
« on: January 21, 2012, 08:32:02 PM »
Ok im a newbie to the vaping world, (nearly 4 weeks) and have an eGo-C system, so here is my question...  When it comes to cleaning out the atomiser/vaporiser or whatever its technical name is, why cant you just fill a cartridge with warm water and vape that to flush it out?? seems like they start to deteriorate due to the build up of reside on the coil (correct me if im wrong here), so sureley flushing out with pure water would remove this build up?? or am I missing something important?? could somebody please advise me, kind regards Mark C.

The build up is hardened gunk which lessens the effectiveness of the coil over time. Water would not remove it alone. Instead it would leave deposits of it's own on the coil and make things worse. Mos effective way of restoring life to an atomizer (in my experiences) is to dry burn the crud off and rinse with deionized or distilled water (strait PG works also). THIS INVALIDATES YOUR WARRANTY. To be safe just blow the thick gunk out every night so it doesn't harden on the coil as fast. The if you feel daring give it a dry burn after the warranty is up.

Let the atty head be in the housing and the cone.
Blow firmly and slowly from the battery end while holding a bit of soft tissue from the other end.
Repeat until the tissue is dry when looking at it.

Don't dry burn unless it is necessary! Only blow out every day/ other day to keep things clear. When vapor is noticeably less than normal or flooding is happening often you should dry burn. Good luck.
