I am a fairly new vaper. I jumped right in with a Zeus. I bought a starter kit on 4/24/2013. Since then I have only gone through a bottle and a half of juice but have gone through 3 smileomizers. I just ordered a 5 pack. I expected them to last a heck of a lot longer. The first 1 lasted only about half a bottle of juice and then started tasting like burnt crap. I blamed it on myself being a newbi and not keeping it topped off. So the second one I kept topping it off rather frequently. Then after a bit, after i filled it the juice seemed to just leak right onto the paper towel i sat it on to fill it. So I ordered a new one (3rd) on 5/20. The other day it would not even work unless it was half screwed onto the battery. It got progressively worse. I thought it was my battery, so I put one of the old ones on and it works fine. So the 3rd one is completely shot. What am I doing wrong? I think I am filling them correctly. I'm tilting and rotating it when I fill it. When it is new I'm putting in about 70 drops. When I top it off I am putting in 20-30 drops. How can I make these things last longer. If this is the way it is I think I am gonna stop using. I don;t want to, I love my Zeus but it does not seem worth it at this point.
