I did a search, but might have missed it. What is the difference between the two? I see them talked about and am not up to speed on the Ecig Lingo yet.

TIA

WELCOME TO VT!!

Cartomizers have the filler in them with the coil. Kinda like an atomizer with a cartridge tip. But will hold more juice than a cartridge. An atomizer is just the heating element and the bridge/wick to help get the juice down to the element. With an atomizer you will need to use a cartridge or use the direct drip method, which is dripping juice in the atomizer.

Feel free to ask away! We love to help!! Posted Image

The cartomisers are meant to be disposable while the atties are to be reused.Having said that most of us are way to frugal to throw away something that still works good so we refill cartomisers for a couple of days to a couple of weeks.And a lot of us clean and use attomisers for weeks and months .The cartomisers are good for longer between refills or topping off.Attomisers are really good for dripping .

I was turned off by cartomizers early on due to some negative posts on another forum. I tried them a few months ago and now they are my weapon of choice. I don't think I will buy another regular ATTY again.

Then, I found this video on VapeTV which shows how to extend the live of a cartomizer by turning it into an atomizer when the fiber filling starts to give off a bad taste.

The removing the filler will not work on the ones with aluminum threads as the element is embedded in the filler,should work on the DSE ones with brass threads though.
