Clearomizers are one of the best innovations for eCig users looking to get the most out of their vaping experience.
Clearomizers come in all shapes and sizes but are distinguished by their transparent composition that allows a user to see the level of liquid remaining in them as well as the quality of the wick.
Because of their unique nature, clearomizers are susceptible to problems outside of the normal realm of atomizers and cartomizers. Many of these problems are easily remedied through proper maintenance, however sometimes a defective clearomizer unit needs to be replaced.
Why Is My Clearomizer Is Leaking?
Clearomizers, like CE4 and GS V-Core units are made from a reinforced plastic that is crack resistant, but not crack proof. These tanks will stand up to heavy wear and tear, but can still crack under constant abuse. Be sure that you’re not dropping your clearomizer or allowing it to bang against hard surfaces when putting it down, as these actions will greatly reduce the lifespan of the unit.
Sometimes, in the case of a CE4, if the tank is still intact but leakage is occurring, the problem can lie in the O-ring sealant that’s inside the tank itself. Check to see if there’s a small, clear ring attached to your black mouthpiece after you unscrew it. If no ring is present, the unit is no longer being sealed and juice can leak. Simply replace the O-ring to fix this issue or, for a replacement unit, call AmericaneLiquidStore® customer service at 877-367-9988.
Why Does My Clearomizer Taste Burnt?
If you’re getting a burnt taste when inhaling from your clearomizer, the problem is likely with the wicks inside of it. When your eLiquid level becomes low and the wicks become dry, they can cause a burning taste to occur. Simply re-wet the wicks inside of your clearomizer by refilling your tank with eLiquid or tilting the unit back and forth so that the remaining juice wets the wicks.
If the burnt taste persists after re-wetting the wicks, please call AmericaneLiquidStore® customer service at 877-367-9988.
Why Did My Clearomizer Stop Working?
Because of their plastic composition, clearomizers are susceptible to decomposition when filled with a highly acidic or corrosive eLiquid. Usually, eLiquids that are oil based (cinnamon, peppermint, clove, etc.) tend to cause problems for these products and should be avoided. Clearomizers tend to stop working very quickly when filled with corrosive eLiquids, as they will damage the atomizers within just a few hours of being filled. We recommend not filling your clearomizers with these juices.
How Do I Fill My Clearomizer?
Filling clearomizers is very different from filling a normal tank. When filling a clearomizer, you must fill liquid to the side of the unit, making sure that the tip of your bottle is diverted away from the center interior console. Getting liquid in the center of the tank can result in leakage, which isn't fun for anyone! Here are step by step instructions on how to properly fill a CE4 Clearomizer (GS V-Core units are essentially the same, but are easier to fill thanks to their size):
- > Unscrew mouthpiece and set aside.
- > Insert bottle tip or syringe into clear part of the tank, with tip angled towards the side.
- > Slowly squeeze eLiquid into the tank until tank is filled.
- > DO NOT OVERFILL! Do not fill past indicators on the side of the tank.
- > When finished filling, replace mouthpiece.
- > Tilt tank back and forth to wet wicks inside of clearomizer.
- > Vape On!
