What is the life expectancy on the tanks?...I know I get 5-6 refills out of a blank cart before I toss it.
Sir Mycheal gotten between 48-96ml's of juice through the ones tested so far before they need to be replaced. All depends on the juice. Higher vg content and certain flavors will shorten the lifespan...

TYVM....I will let you know how it works out for me, I should have mine this week
Can these be cleaned the same ways as traditional cartomizers can? I typically boil mine, so I'm wondering if that will be an option with these (if they pop out of the tank).Interesting....I believe Whistles asked me this same question about 2 weeks ago about cleaning the Dual Coil Tank cartomizers and the answer I gave was, "Yes". However I am not a big fan of boiling them out since hot tap water is as effective and doesn't risk damaging them. To dry them give them a Taryn Spin, if you have any fishing line 6lb. + take about 3 feet, match the ends together and tie a knot. Now you have a big loop, tie a half not around the cartomizer under the flange and sinch it down, give that a good spin (away from fragile items) then let the carto sit mouth piece end down on a paper towel for a day.From what I understand these are a slight bit longer and they have two holes punched on the side to let the juice come in... the bottom is also flanged for air flow.
I don't see why you can't clean them like a regular they do pop out of the tank...
As for the flange, as I mentioned in my video the flange is notched for Air flow. The notches have everything to do with the current KR batteries that are sold at Vapor4Life.
The flange in and of itself has Zero, Nada, Zilch to do with airflow. It also has very little, if nothing to do with preventing leakage, that is the job of the O-rings. The Flange simply acts as a stopper to keep the cartomizers from being pulled up thru the tank thus spilling juice everywhere. Indirectly it also slows down the amount of leakage should the lower inner O-ring fail, but by no means will it actually prevent juice from leaking.
With these specific tanks, you cannot use regular 1 ml Cartomizers..they are too short. The Dual Cartomizers that are used in these tanks are referred to as XL's and they hold 1.5 ml of juice. So when a tank alone is drained to the bottom and you refill it to the top...that is 2 mls with 3.5 tank, 4.5 mls with 6ml tank.
Generally speaking you should be able to 30-40 mls of use out of them with thick juices and 40-60 mls with thinner juices. If you chose to rinse them out you can get about another 20-30 mls of use before they die out.

So to get this clarified.... Notbhing with the flange deals with airflow.... Except the notch in the flange which has everything to do with airflow on some batterys.... Yeah... Zombie point but I think the simplified answer worked the same.

I am curious:
This post may contain subject matter which is influenced by any person I have met or heard of including (but not limited to) Plato, Newton, Copeland, Hawking, Reagan, people on facebook, members of this and other forums, folks with CBs back in the 70's, my coworkers, fellow band-members, and that guy who owns the convenience store down the street. Consider this your blanket citation of all prior works.
I'm just here to ensure people get the correct information, so when you noted "the bottom is also flanged for air flow" that is simply incorrect. The purpose of the flange is noted in my reply. The bottom flange is notched for specifically for KR808s airflow, but that is not it's main purpose. If the bottom flange is simply for better airflow, why is it 510 flanged cartos are not notched?
You seem a little defensive perhaps you should PM me if you would like to discuss this matter further.
Mikelos had a question, I responded with an answer.

Not so much defensive as simply clarifying my understanding... Allthough seem you are on sort of an offensive with arrogance...
No pm's needed to see that
