Like a light bulb, the filament in the atomizer will eventually fail. The life of an atomizer depends on how much it is used. On average, an atomizer will last for a few weeks to a couple months. If a person is a heavy vaper, the life cycle will be shorter. For light vapors, it may last longer. With proper care any atomizer can last a long time. If you're going to switch to electronic cigarettes, you have to budget buying new atomizers to replace your expired atomizers.
How to prime the atomizer?
• Fold your paper towel over a few times and set it on your non porous work surface.
• Stand your atomizer (threaded size down) on your paper towel.
• Drip 10 drops of eliquid into the top of the atomizer.
• Let the atomizer stand there for around 10 minutes. You will want it to stay standing up. This will make sure all the internal parts of the atomizer are soaked in eliquid, and will help loosen up any dried primer. After the 10 minutes most of the excess eliquid will have drained out the bottom of the atomizer. But there may still be a little bit to much in the atomizer to use right now.
• Pick up the atomizer and with the paper towel still under the threads, place your lips around the top of the atomizer, and blow through the atomizer lightly. You do not want to blow very hard. You are not trying to blow out all of the eliquid, just the excess.
• Now wipe the threads clean and dry.
• Screw the atomizer on our battery.
• Place your drip tip on the atomizer and enjoy your vape.
