I never used the carto condom filling method (too messy).

Just add drops round the side from the top (about 20+ drops depending on size, the XXL size used to take about 50+ drops, and I lost count how many the fartos used to take Wink), and then when in use pull out the drip tip and top up with liquid every 20-50 drags or so.

RE: Blank cartomisers
I used Boges for several years (in a tank) and they were the most hassle free vape ever. Unfortunately the vapour production no longer satisfies my cravings Blush
PM me and i'll sort you out for a few packs of Boges and a carto-tank. Then you can have a play.

RE: Blank cartomisers
Stick with the cartos if they work for you. I happily use low power gennnys - a few months to learn all the things that can go wrong, then hassle free vaping, never a leak. Always thought tanks are for folk who like getting juice on their hands.

Thanks for any advice anyone can give me.
Hi,
We stopped selling cartomisers 3 years ago, but some the best ones were the Boge or Innokin 510 carts. From memory they hold about 0.5 to 0.7ml the xl and xxl hold a bit more. They are OK to fill as long as you leave them to soak before use and you can re-fill them a few times if you're careful.
I don't know any shops that still sell them but you may be lucky finding them.
Good luck

I first got my carts from VIP but, later found Magic mist; they sell compatible carts for every brand and are far cheaper than the originals. I've been using their prefiled ones for some time and was just wondering about their empty ones

RE: Blank cartomisers
Thanks everyone for your advise. I'm going to stick with Magic mist cartos for the moment as they are far cheaper than the VIP ones and have far better taste although they only have two flavours, tobacco or Menthol. I might try a batch of their empty ones when I finish my present batch of fifty which will be sometime in the new year. As I said previously, I like cartos, they are hassle free and easy to use for this old boyHeHe!

RE: Blank cartomisers
Are these what you're looking for?
https://www.totallywicked-eliquid.co.uk/...mizer.html

Stumbled upon them when looking at what TW has to offer as they sent me a 20% discount code. Don't think I'm gonna buy anything so you're welcome to try it if you like. Anyone else too for that matter. May not work as could be specific to my account though

Free your mind and your ass will follow.

I think those are intended for use in their tank system (could be wrong though!)

I found a couple of stores with cartos still in stock: I've not had any experience of them myself so can't vouch for them Smiling

They're definitely a rare item though and becoming rarer, so it may be worth trying to find an alternative for the long term

Ah OK makes sense. Only ever used carts on my first cigalike myself, so don't know a great deal about them. They seem pretty simple and faff-free

Blank cartomisers
I still use cartos every now and again even though I've got loads of other more modern gear. I like the simplicity and think you get good flavour from them for menthols. I've got a stash of Boges but this site still sells them...
