@Via...Thank you for the cleaning advice. I just finished it and it worked great. I taste no remnants of Banana Breeze whatsoever. It was kind of grueling however. I'm not the biggest fan of vodka:). It was definitely worth it though. Saved me some money and allowed me to fill my tank with my favorite flavor without waiting on another cart to ship. I'm going to go ahead and order more right now so I can be ready when this one dies.
thats great, OJ!!! i suppose you could use your favorite adult beverage...but what a waste of gentleman jack!!!

here is what i do if my cart seems a little "tired"....(i got all these tips and tricks from mr Morandir, Mr Rick06 at ecf, and others who post info about the eGo mega cartos...all im doing is explaining how i do it, and putting MY checklist in order!)
first, check the filling material...poke it with the syringe needle if necessary to see if it is hard and crunchy, or still soft and pliable...sweet, sugary juices i THINK tend to carmelize or something in there...some mints and menthols make it REALLY HARD and CRUNCHY!!
if it appears to be still soft, or at least not TOO HARD AND CRUNCHY...first thing to try is the "GUM" brand toothpics..they are white with a green rubberized brush end....CAREFULLY run the toothpick up the battery end gently twisting as you do so. IF YOU RUN INTO ANY RESISTANCE..STOP..STOP..STOP!!!! then, run the toothpick down from the mouth end..(i use a tweezer to hold it)...if you run into resistance, try twisting the toothpick or wiggling it a bit...but, if you dont do this right, you will dislodge the wick, and the carto will die...(anyone remember the game "operation"?) you will probably pull some "gunk" out...if i were smoking an analog, i would compare it to "tar"...but its not...just caramelized sugars...test the carto again...if it is giving you a nice flow...you dont need anything more...if still rather sluggish, go to next step...
If you have a steam cleaner, steam it until it is clean...if no steam cleaner, go thru the cleaning operation...soak in vodka to break up the sugars, then rinse under the tap with hot water, then boil...and into the oven to dry...just like i wrote out before to get the taste out...but a shorter version, if you are just going to refill with the same flavor, or something compatible, there is no need to put the carto thru 4 vodka soaks, and hot water baths, etc...all we want it is CLEANER....ie: you had vanilla in the cart, and now you are adding vanilla mocha frappe...im sure you understand...
if you have any questions...pm me, or post...im on the forum almost every day...
OJ sir if you're using the king diamond and stealth series you can use the 1.5ohm dc's on them without issue. 1.25 dc's (which Vapor4Life doesn't sell) won't fire on them, but they were designed for people using 3.2v egos anyways. Actually am getting the notes together tonight from my latest testing on just such topic. :)
Cool. Can't wait to read it. I think after trying the Boges and the Cool Carts, I prefer the Cool Carts a little more. The Boges definitely produce more vapor but the Cool Carts provide more taste especially during consecutive hits.
