in my liquid tank, how do I switch from one flavor to another without it tasting off? it says to use up all what is in it before replacing it, than it also says not to hit if it is empty, so where is the line, what do I do, and do I need to clean this thing?

Depends on what kind of tank it is; does it have wicks hanging down from the top or no? No matter what, you can just vape it dry, fill it up with another juice and go; you'll have a few hits where the bit of old juice is mixed with the new, but after 8 or 10 toots, it should be all the new flavor. If you're just refilling with the same juice, no worries...just refill it and continue vaping.

Eventually you'll wanna clean it and maybe dry-burn the coil/wick, but how you do this depends upon what type tank it is. Got a picture or a link to a picture?

This is going to depend on what type of tank you are using. I have only dealt with clearomizers so far and they are easy to clean. You can look up cleaning a clearomizer in youtube and it will come up.

if there is a wic I can't see it, but the instruction manual says simply to clean the threads now and then for a good connection. which when I refill a very (almost not even visible) amount of juice gets in where the battery meets the tank. it could be something else but it seems to be when i first fill it, but I just take the corner of a cotton cloth put it down in the threads and turn it... anyhow heres a link with a decent pic on it.

The website does not have a very good photo of the tank, I've seen some similar "Wickless" tanks that really have very small wicks. But I'd need to see a better photo to figure out how it is cleaned.

Looks kinda like this...do a youtube or Google search for "Wickless CE4 Clearomizer for eGo cleaning" and see what you find. Good luck!

I looked at the website.

Kinda lost interest in the add for WHITE RHINO SYNTHETIC URINE.

Try just about any of the Kanger series clearomizers.

Or the ViVi Nova or the ViVi Nova mini as long as it is V3.

It's all mind over matter. If no one seems to mind, it really doesn't matter!

yeah, the company itself is in all kinds of things but this thing last forever on battery so far and is just so much better than the ones with the cigarette style cartomizers. I got it at a local tobacco store for $35. I'm sure since the warranty sucks that it may die soon, or have a short lifespan. but I figured I would give it a shot. I haven't charged except a total of 6 minutes when I got it.
If I did want to upgrade, is their anything that that is probably of higher quality but with the same style with the clear tank? I won't have the money for a while though. I had to drop $1,400 on my car. Still need tires too... it sucks.

So I just tried to dry burn 2 of my T2 clearo tanks for my twist and they look clean but still smell like the last juice I had in them.. Is this normal or should I have done it longer??
