Smile-o what? Understanding the Smileomizer cartridge

So, you consider yourself a vaping novice? Think you know all there is to know about mods, threading, coils, and ohms? Have you heard of the Smileomizer from Vapor4Life? If you have, cool! Vape on my friend. If you don’t know about “Smileos” I’m here to tell you all about them.

A Smileomizer is basically a giant cartomizer. It has white polyfill inside the cylinder which soaks up juice. They are KR808D-threaded and have a vertical single coil with 2.5ohm resistance. Cartomizers with 2.5ohm provide the most superb flavor and vapor production in a single coil. It’s made of stainless steel. Smileomizers look very similar to cartomizers on the inside. The end tip that goes in your mouth is very different though. The Smileomizer has a soft rubbery-like tip that is chewy, kind of like a cigar. This part is made from surgical-grade silicone.

Available in magenta, black, blue, green, and cigar-color, Smileomizers also come in two sizes. The small hold 3.5ml of juice, while the large holds 6ml. Unscrew the cap, and squirt about 30 drops of juice into the polyfill. Make sure you don’t get any juice into the center hole. Then let the juice settle in for about 5 minutes. Then continue filling it, 30 drops at a time. The small need about 60-90 drops, while the large take about 90-120. Again, let the Smileomizer sit for a few minutes to allow the juice to fully sink in.

One of the most important things to keep in mind is that Smileomizers must have enough juice in them to work right. If there’s not enough juice in it, then the polyfill will burn and you can never recover a burnt Smileo. That, and a burnt Smileomizer (or cart for that matter) taste super gross!

After using a Smileomizer for a few hours, unscrew the cap and make sure it’s still saturated with juice. If it looks dry, it needs a refill. These bad boys can be refilled over 12 times. It’s true, Steve Smilin Milin says so himself!

One of the great things about Smileomizers is that they can be cleaned and reused, just like cartomizers. To clean it, just take the cap off and run the cart part under hot water. Use a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol to wipe the metal threading clean. The key to cleaning Smileomizers is to make sure they are completely dry before adding juice.

Why would you want to clean the Smileomizer? Well if you want to use a different flavor and don’t think the old and new flavors will get along too well, it’s a good idea to clean it before adding a new flavor.

  1. Although the cigar-like rubbery tips, esp. the ming-vase style, are not bad, I would prefer to have a choice between them and a more standard drip tip like V4L’s stainless steel or Delrin one. Looking at the (un-)screwing topcap this shouldn’t be rocket science to design and build, perhaps a nice idea for a new product/accessorie for 2014 ?
    …just *my* €0.02 worth…

    Kindest regards!


  2. I have 4 titan batteries 2 old 2 new and only one really works. I have bought the dial avolt and had to return two of them and the third one doesn’t work well either. I started using the smilizer like the smoother draw. But when I filled a new one it doesn’t work either. I have spent hundreds and am totally frustrated. I quit cigarettes but am considering a different company. So frustrated!!

  3. I have had the most frustrating experience with the Smileomizer! I am reading all the positive comments on your site, so I know it must be something I’m doing wrong! I need help figuring this out. I am careful to put 90 drops of liquid in my carts but I STILL get that nasty burnt smell the first time I use it, and whoever said once they smell gross they’re ruined is right! So what am I doing wrong??? Also, is the mesh ring supposed to stay in the cart? And last but not least, how do you avoid that nasty burn to your throat from heat even if the cart is filled??? So far I’m not very happy I bought the ten pack of these. HELP!

    • Hi Margaret, I’m sorry you’re having trouble. The answer is MORE juice. Add juice until it leaks out and then let it soak in. (Wipe off the excess before screwing onto your battery). Then, every once in a while add more juice to replenish what you’ve used. It takes a bit of time getting used to, but you’ll be a pro soon! :)
