The simple answer is “yes and no.” Some e cigarette cartridges are refillable and some are not
E cigarette cartridges contain a bit of polyester fluff that absorbs the e cigarette liquid and allows it to flow gently through the atomizer while in use. Although there are some die-hard electronic cigarette fans who use the either the “drip method” or the “injection method” of refilling each cartridge, most simply buy new e cigarette cartridges because it’s easy. It’s not terribly cost effective, but as usual, easy often beats cost savings in a popularity contest.
So, if a regular user has decided to purchase her nicotine and flavoring liquids in bulk, then she has a choice of refilling her e cigarette cartridges by dismantling them or injecting them: dismantling means removing the polyester fluff and dripping a few drops in the old cartridge, then replacing the polyester fluff to absorb the liquid; while injecting means refilling the old cartridge with a liquid-filled syringe. Either way, e cigarette cartridges can be put back into service for great vaping once again.
How Long Do E Cigarette Cartridges Last?
The time to refill e cigarette cartridges is when there’s a noticeable smell like something burning or perhaps distinctly less vapor production. Most experienced users will say that e cigarette cartridges can be refilled five or six times, that’s it. After that, the polyester fluff basically wears out and damage can occur to the atomizer as a result of varying liquid flow through the polyester. It’s highly advisable to watch online videos of e cigarette cartridges being refilled in order to avoid any accidents or errors refilling at home.
I don’t know if dismantling the e cigarette cartridge is really worth the effort when you can purchase a new starter kit or get new cartridges for a couple of dollars. Using the one time disposable e cigarette doesn’t allow for changing its e cigarette cartridges.
