How to Fill a Cartomizer with the Flex-Tip Syringe

E-smoking can be intimidating to newcomers. The team at Johnson Creek Enterprises has created a series of articles and videos to help people learn about vaping. This one is meant to help you learn how to fill your cartomizers with a Flex-Tip Cartridge Needle.

You’ll need three items for this:  a bottle of e-liquid, the Flex-Tip Cartridge Needle, and cartomizers.

The flex-tip syringe comes in a little bag with the tip off.  Some people fill the syringe with e-juice and then put on the blue tip. Other people put on the tip first then fill it. In our example, we’ll put the tip on before we fill it; however, if you find it difficult to draw the e-liquid into the syringe with the tip on, you’ll want to try it with the tip off.

Remove the flex-tip from the baggie and attach the tip. It screws onto the end of the syringe. Make sure it’s snug. The plunger should be fully depressed.

Your Vea electronic cigarette cartomizers will be in a box. The rubber mouthpiece comes attached. You’ll need to remove it before filling; it can be easily removed with a fingernail.

There is a center tube surrounded by fiber fill inside the cartomizers. You’ll be adding your e-liquid to the fiber fill. You do not want it in the center tube.

Shake your bottle of eliquid and set the cap aside. Make sure it is out of the reach of kids and pets.

Insert the flex-tip syringe into the juice. Draw back on the plunger until it is holding 1mL of e-liquid. Subsequent refills will need a bit less than 1mL.

Remove the syringe from the bottle. If you don’t already have the tip attached, attach it now. If you do have it attached, slide the long thin tip between the fiber fill and the cylinder of the cartomizer. Add a bit of e-liquid. Move the tip and add some more e-liquid. The idea here is to evenly distribute the ejuice.

As you fill it, the fiber filling turns from dry, fluffy, and white to wet and dark. This color change is easier to see with darker flavors. Lighter colored flavors may be difficult to see. You want it wet and saturated, but you do not want e-liquid pooling at the top of the cartomizer.

Once you have added the e-liquid, remove the syringe from the cartomizer and put on the rubber tip. You want to make sure the "point" of the rubber tip lines up with the center tube.

You can now screw the cartomizer onto the Vea battery (or any other 510 or eGo-style threaded battery) and enjoy the vapor! You don't have to use a syringe to fill cartomizers. We have an article that explains how to use a dropper cap to fill a cartomizer/
