WOW where to start? Let’s see, I’m sure people don’t read every blog post so I will summarize everything lol. A Twitter friend (@destinblue) told me that her and her husband have an online store (@ZeusEJuice) where they sell e-liquid for e-cigarettes. I don’t smoke, but it got me thinking, and long story short I decided that it was for me lol. I figured the sweet tastes would help me stop snacking. I bought a kit with 2 batteries, 2 atomizers, the charger and cartridges. It took like 6 weeks to get to me and I already had the e-liquid from Zeus e-Juice waiting to be used.
I faced several issues. 1 the atomizers weren’t giving me any flavor and 2 I bought 50/50 strength e-liquid, which I later found out doesn’t matter. I bought a “Changeable Coil Clearomizer” from Smoktek and all was great with the world until I overtightened the tip and snapped the rubber seal and could then only taste burnt flavor. I didn’t know that that was why I was tasting burnt flavors and I bought 5 new coils which still tasted burnt so I bought 5 more coils and wasted 2 of them for nothing. The first 5 were the right type of coils, but the second 5 weren’t, they had a cone near the threads so I had to return those to get the right ones.
Fast forward to now… LOL
When I got the new coils that were the right fit, they still tasted burned and I finally came to the realization that the problem wasn’t the coils, the problem was that rubber seal that snapped and was removed from the clearomizer, so I bought 2 new clearomizers in red and black (pictured above). The only problem is, the coils in them are the same wrong ones that I returned, so now I have 8 wrong coils for these new clearomizers lol.
I had been without my e-cigarette for over a month because of this whole snapped rubber seal and didn’t even realize that it was the seal and not the coils. I guess something in me just snapped and made my eyes open to the fact that the clearomizer is dead and I needed another one. I am so happy with the new ones because not only do I now have 2, but they work and I can vape 2 different flavors whenever I want to instead of being stuck with 1 flavor.
Another thing that I love about them is that they screw on the battery all the way, the other one and the atomizers that came in the kit didn’t, and they wobbled. These new ones have 2 holes at the bottom for air flow, so that’s why it can screw them on all the way. Also, the black one has a round tip and not a flat tip which I found out is actually better because it makes pressing the button less awkward if the flat tip isn’t lined up with the placement of the button.
As far as the 8 wrong coils are concerned, SmokTek was very understanding. It wasn’t their error in sending the wrong coils, they were sent the wrong coils and the new clearomizers that I got that had the wrong coils, well technically it was their fault, but they didn’t even notice that they weren’t the right ones when they shipped them to me. It was such an odd coincidence that a screw up would happen to me twice, but I laughed it off. As long as I get 8 new coils that fit these new clearomizers I’m happy. Those things cost money you know, they are $2.50 each, so I had $20 worth of coils, $25 if you count the ones that I thought were burnt out and I threw in the garbage. Yes ladies and gentlemen, I basically threw $5 in the trash.
So the new clearomizers rock. I’ve been vaping Banana Nut Bread in the red one and Gingerbread in the black one. I’ll take a few hits off of one, then switch to the other.
As always, for some reason I feel that I have to state that I do not get paid to blog about SmokTek and/or Zeus e-Juice. I have seen videos on YouTube where they state in their video that they are not getting paid and so I feel I should also state that just in case.
