When you make the shift to electronic cigarettes, you can
purchase pre-filled e-cig cartridges or refill your cartridges with e-liquid. By
making the choice to refill your own electronic cigarette cartridges instead of
throwing them away, you can save a fair bit of money. To refill your e-cig
cartridges, you will need to buy E-Liquid to use to fill the cartridges. All the electronic cigarettes products can be refilled with the E-Liquid actually.
Filling E-Liquid into the cartridge can be tricky if you are
doing this for the first time because most are not designed to be reused. This
doesn’t mean that it’s impossible though, if done right then you will be able to
smoke your prefered liquid nicotine flavour to your heart’s content.
There are generally two ways to do this. The first is the “drip
method” and the second is the “injection method”.
Materials needed: E-Liquid dropper bottle.
This method requires that you open up the cartridge
and remove the polyester filling inside the cartridge. Then take a
dropper and drip a few drops into the cartridge. Gently place the
filling back and wait for the liquid to be soaked up by the filling. Add
a few more drops to the filling to make sure it is saturated but not so
much that the liquid will accumulate at the top. You may need to push
the filling and then add more drops multiple times to ensure that it is
completely saturated with the liquid nicotine. Close the cartridge. This
method takes time and patience because you have to wait for the
filling to be completely saturated.Or for a Cartomizer click here for a video.

The best tool to use for refilling electronic cigarette
cartridges and to avoid getting e-liquid all over the place is a syringe. By
using a syringe with a needle, you can disperse the e-liquid evenly along the
cartridge filler. A syringe also makes it easier for you to extract e-liquid
from a bottle.
How to Refill E-Cig Cartridges with a Syringe:
Step 1: Take the White Rubber Cap off of the end of the
cartridge using tweezer or a small screwdriver.
Step 2: Use your syringe and remove e liquid from your bottle.
Then, insert the syringe needle into the middle of your e cig cartridge filler
until you are near the bottom of the cartridge. For two-piece Cartomizer, you
will want to make sure you avoid damaging the atomizer and insert the syringe
needle aiming for the mesh that is inside of the cartomizer tube. Depress your
syringe plunger slowly while moving the needle. The goal is to ensure an even
fill of your e cig cartridge without overfilling.
Step 3: Replace the Electronic Cigarette cartridge rubber
Step 4: Once the cartridge is filled, cap it for later use or
install on your electronic cigarette.
Step 5: Put any left-over e liquid back into your e-liquid
bottle. You can also put the cap on the syringe and let it remain in the syringe
to top off additional cartridges.
Step 6: Wash your syringe by filling it with fresh water and
flushing the syringe several times.
