So i have a feeling that the atomizers failing has to do with heating of the solutions. for example, e-cig liquid seems to be much worse for atomizers than ruyan liquid. I think it has to do with solids forming when heating.
Here is my thought. If we could find a solution that would cut(or dissolve) the solids but not destroy the atomizers then maybe we could get these things to last longer.
It has to be something that is either non-toxic when heated, or has to completely dry so we aren’t inhaling nasty fumes. any ideas?
Flux-cleaner was a thought as it is supposed to dry with no residue, but i don’t know if it will affect the atomizer, or how long it will take to completely dry.
-Dusty-|||Dr. Loi probably knows more about this than anybody. Let’s hope he chimes in. In the meantime, I wonder if liquor might not help. There are alcohol inhalers, after all (banned in Florida for any use!). And we use rubbing alcohol to clean the atomizer. I have also used alcohol-based extract as a part of the smoking fluid — but I don’t know what it’s doing to the atomizer.
If this could help clean an atomizer, we might do something like 80% PG, 20% alcohol in the flavor of our choice (I’ll use Kahlua, thank you, or creme de cacao). Or, for nicotine, 80% tasteless extra high nic E-Liquid and 20% Kahlua liquor. A double whammy perhaps?
One other note: E-Cig fluids darken cartridges. Their explanation was that the tobacco extract they use is the cause. Note that Ruyan announced its fluid would not contain tobacco extract after last November. Their cartridges don’t darken. Soooo…the e-liquid has particulates suspended in the water/PG fluid. Those particulates darken cartridges. Those particulates might be the reason atomizers clog on E-Cig fluid but not Ruyan fluid.
And could those tobacco extract particulates build up on the walls of our lungs?||| |||Sure do. I was editing my post while you were posting.|||Hey TB
The liquid from Freesmoke doesn’t darken in the cartridges even over quite a long time so maybe they don’t add tobacco flavours.|||i dont trust e-cigs liquid anymore.i reckon its bunged up two of my atomisers-the only two i use it with!knutselpeter reckons it ruins atomisers too.who regulates these people?nobody it seems-they probably make it with stock cubes.time to look for other suppliers(not so easy for usa folks,i know) and buy new atomisers,methinks…hope you find a solution rat.|||as do i… as do i|||Mr. Darcy and RatInDaHat,
Do you not trust eliquids for use in any way? For example, not even for taking out the filter material and soaking it in an elquid?|||so far, not the e-cig.com e-liquid. i think that is the cause of my problems. I have heard that strong flavors don’t help either. like pineapple is supposed to be the worst, where as flue-cured isn’t too bad.
-Dusty-|||not eliquids in general,just e-cigs liquid.maybe im wrong,but after looking at the evidence of my own experience,and listening to the opinions of people who are much more experienced and knowledgeable than i am,like knutselpeter-whos a bit of an esmoking guru-i just have come to the conclusion that it isnt the best stuff we can use regarding the longevity of our equipment.however,for some its the only viable option at present for financial and supply reasons.so we are in a bind right now.im sure options will improve in time.Tags: atomizer, e-liquid, eliquid, flavor, flavors, nicotine, RUYAN, supplier, Tips & Tricks
