thats basically all im asking lol

well, i ask because i have a cheap ecig with rechargeable battery that has a cartomizer, i think and i noticed that when i take long drags that i can feel the butt warming up a bit on my lips. im sure thats not natural or good
i think that it burns the liquid too much and that may be the reason why its a little harsh when i inhale and very dry. i mean, if its supposed to be water vapors then i dont see why it would be dry when i inhale.

whats with that?

i started out with a cheap e cig also that i bought from a local tobacco store. the e cigs were E Health Cigarettes, they were crap and lasted maybe a week and when i took them back to the store the guy pulled out a box full of parts and said, please find what will work....lol. well i wasnt loling at the time so i started doing more research which lead me here. everyone here will help to get you the right info on what your looking for, they sure did help me thats for sure ;).

i would get a new e cig, thats what i would suggest. maybe a 510 starter kit which i have or a ego which is very popular :)

Neither one is 'the best' IMO. But Cartomizers are 'better'... offering user the ease of usage and time between refilling/dripping, etc. And, for me, I actually get better flavor/vapor than with an atomizer. I think other carto users would agree as well, Christopher? Also, if you are a 3.7 volt vaper... then you must try 'Boge LR cartos'! They really work like a champ!

thanks
one of the main things im curious about with this question is related to the slight but noticeable burning feeling and roughness i get. like is it supposed to be this way? are all of them, even the expensive ones supposed to be rough or harsh? i like ecigs, and so far it has replaced my desire for analogs. but i wish it were smoother goin down my throat instead of feeling like its burning like an analog almost.

You're mentioning a burning and harshness, from my experience, it sounds like you may vaping on a Carto that is too dry. This will sometimes cause the material around the atomizer to burn slightly and give you that bad taste and burn in your lungs and throat. The problem is, once a Carto gets scorched like that it's pretty much done for giving you a smooth vape.

Our VaporTalk Founder and fearless leader, Christopher made a really useful vid that shows how to fill your cartos up right and give you the best vape.

Hope this helps you!

You have to consider that most people who use cartos suggest the boge's. They also use juices from quality vendors, which taste much better than any pre-filled carto I've tried. Upgrade your carto and Juice, and you should be much happier than where you are now.

As far as which one is better? Clearly it would be an LR atty (if you ask me), but it seems more people use cartomizers. IMO, DD on an atty tastes and vapes the best. With it comes the pain of dripping all the time, and having tissue around. A bottom feeder solved this problem for me so attys taste and function the best.

Cartos will get hot, so you may want to use a drip tip with them. Using a drip tip will also help you keep from getting juiced (sucking eliquid into your mouth). IMO, for convenience go with cartomizers, but for the best vaping experience go with an atomizer and direct dripping.

They each have thier place.Atties can't be beat for dripping and carto's are good for outings.A drip tip or cut down cart in place of the rubber plug will cool off the lips .And when they reach the end on thier useful life 3 to 5 days for me depending what liquid I am using they get nasty tasting harsh vappor.
