Polyester Filling And Njoy From 7-11? Pretty Worried!
Posted 22 October 2012 - 11:06 AM
that same article was updated on 6/2012 to say that polyester is no longer used, so im sort of at a loss here. i send njoy an email to see what the deal is, but can anyone put my mind at ease here? id rather not get emphysema or cancer from an ecig.

So, I think i determined it was liquid that was burnt/crudded around the wick/atomizer part of the cartomizer I had. At least, after a full day of googling and asking questions, that's what I think.
Anyhow, if anyone has more info that would be cool. I guess i really just dont want to end up with popcorn lung or something.

I think it was the "wick" and not the actual filter (absorbing material). it was NOT the big piece of cloth/fiber in there, it was inside of that...if I understand correctly, the atomizer is wrapped around it or is near it?
ive been on and off again smoker, never really heavy...just kind of needed something to relieve the stress and went the ecig route, rather than analogs this time around. didnt wanna trade one poison for another, but i suppose the < 24 hours of using this cartomizer was not enough for anything too bad.

If you purchase liquid by the bottle and refill the cartomizer, it will last upwards of about a week or so. Then should be changed out. Regardless what the filler is actually made of, at the end of the day, if it's not kept moist, it's going to start burning up.

Thank you for the kind words!
As for your question, the "wick" is actually made of cotton not polyester so there is nothing to worry about.
The liquid (aka "juice") turns the cotton a dark brownish color initially and becomes darker as the fluid is vaporized.
Hopefully this was helpful, however; if you have any other questions please feel free to ask!
Take care Joshua and have a great week.
well, that's relieving to know!
