      Oh you laugh, but the thing works amazingly well. Especially for flushing out cartos. I just hope someone makes a metal version at some point.

  3. I've tried using filling syringes in the past, but the amount of air pressure is tight due to the rubber seal inside the plunger, making it difficult to pull fluid up into the syringe itself, as it's a little too air tight, too high a vacuum. The needle top bottle lids have worked better for me, including for cartomizers. For the cartomizers with felt around the exterior, I began taking a plastic stemmed cotton ear swab and cutting off the cotton ends, placing that down into the center hole so that no fluid can get beyond the plastic tube and then using the needle top bottle to saturate the fiber around the edges, letting it stand upright and soaking itself down into the padding. I do look forward to getting a tank cartomizer soon so I can use pure fluid, refill from above and do it quickly without having to worry about filler material getting soaked. So many designs and so many product types, between atomizers, tanks, cartomizers, it's hard to keep up on which is the most convenient and also easiest to refill and maintain to last longest. Nice articles here to find out by review how different product lines work before deciding whether to go the various different routes available these days.

      I haven't had any real issues pulling liquid into syringes before, unless I used a very narrow-gauge needle like an insulin needle. The hollow tip needles like the one in the kit are plenty big. Silly question, but are you taking the dripper top off the bottle to fill the syringe?

      Anyway, there's now a world of choice. It wasn't that long ago when atomizers were the only option, and they all came in the same resistance!

      Glad you are finding the reviews a useful tool in navigating the wide array of stuff that's out there now. It sure is fun trying all the different tech out, even the ones that work less than great!

    I speak from experience. when I say even your "ego-t B LR" atty can benefit from this flush method plus a dry burn. A 510 to 510 extensions will work well with this unit. SmokTek has a flush unit with an attachment for the ego-T atty.

    I use straight VG niquid and it's impossible to suck into a syringe so my solution is to pull the plunger out, put an appropriate amount of niquid into the tube then replace the plunder with the needle inserted into the carto. It takes a little pressure to pump the liquid out but it's about the easiest way I've found when filling larger cartos.

    1. Yes, I think that's what it is for me too, the VG is very thick and so hard to pull into the syringe. Topping it in from the top is a better idea in that case. Good idea, thanks.
