How to fill E-Cigarette Cartridges, Cartomizers, Clearomizers and Tanks

Taking the step from traditional tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes can be somewhat challenging for some. Knowing what device is right for you and what strength and flavour of e-liquid will work takes time and alot of patience, but once you give it time and get comfortable with your device and how it works, things come together and everything becomes second nature fairly quickly for most.

In this article, we are going to teach people how to fill the various cartridges (cartomizers), clearomizers and tanks that we sell on our store.

Filling KR808D-1 T4S & EGO Mini CE4 Clearomizer style cartridges

  1. Simply unscrew the mouthpiece and drip liquid inside the tank being careful not to put any liquid into the center hole.

  2. Fill the tank up to the top fill line (T4S would be 0.9ml line and CE4 would be 1.6ml fill line).

  3. Screw the mouthpiece back on and take long slow puffs to prime the atomizer.


Filling KR808D-1 Metal Cartridges

  1. Make sure the white end plastic is removed. 

  2. Now next step is to take the clear rubber end cap without the long center rubber point (this is the rubber end cap that would be attached to the end of the cartridge you puff from) and use your dropper bottle and drip approx  35 - 40 drops into this rubber cap (cap should be almost full).

  3. After you have done this, simply take your empty dry cartridge and push it very slowly into the cap.

  4. You will notice the liquid fills the cartridge evenly and some liquid comes up the center wick (this is ok).

  5. After you have fully pushed the cartridge into the cap, you can then pull the cap off and wipe off any excess liquid on the cartridge itself.

  6. Wash your hands thoroughly and let cartridge sit for 10 minutes. 

  7. The longer you let it sit, the better the smoking experience will be.
