I am completely new to vaping.  I have a few questions, the ecig i have now has a wickless clearomizer tank.  I have seen some that has wicks.  Which is better?? Also my clearomizer has only been lasting about 2 weeks.  Is this normal?? After 2 weeks time i am not getting a good hit, hardly any smoke.  I clean the battery and blow all the juice that gets stuck in the middle tube thing. LOL Sorry if I sound stupid here, but i only know 2 other people who vape and they are new too..Thanks!

More than likely there is a wick in the "wickless" clearo, it's just very short and on the bottom of the tank instead of long and hanging down from the top of it.

 

Personally I prefer the bottom coils, it's less likely that I'll get a dry hit and I don't have to keep tipping to keep the top coil long wick wet.

 

Coils (the heating element) usually last around two weeks. Some last longer, some shorter. That's why it's good to get a clearomizer that you can change the coils so you won't have the expense of replacing the whole thing every time. A replacement coil usually only costs a little less than $2.00 each.

 

You don't sound stupid, you sound new -- just like we all were when we started. Asking questions is good.  :)

Thanks so much for your help.  I am having another problem.  I opened a new clearomizer the day before yesterday and it still isn't smoking right.  I get little or no smoke.  So I thought maybe this one was messed up so I opened a new one, this one is doing the same thing.  I would like to know how to change my coils.  Where would I get this information.  thanks!

What exactly are you using? Without that information I can't begin to help with your questions. What brand and style of battery? Which clearomizer? What ohm coil?

 

Also, one other thing. The reason why you're not getting any "smoke" is because there is nothing combustible when you vape. If you set something on fire it will give off smoke. We "vape" and get "vapor". It's a small distinction but something we prefer in order to differentiate ourselves from cigarettes and all the negativity related to "smoking".  :)

How long have you had your battery and like Tameiki asked What are you using? And what brand and style of battery are you using? And what ohm coil? :) Also are the tanks your using disposable that the coils cannot be changed on or does the bottom screw off and you can take the coil out? :)

okay I have a triple 3 ego.  I have a 900 and 650 battery.  I have tried on both and I get little or no vapor.  the clearomizer I use are the ce5, wickless. Usually when I put a new clearomizer on it works really really good, but the last three aren't working well at all.  All my batteries are less than 3 weeks old and one I bought yesterday.  I cannot take the coil outs they are disposable coils.  I hope this helps.  Thank you both for your help!! :yes
