FINGERNAIL TIP/TRICK...Resolving a possible connection problem between the Carto & the Battery

If you're experiencing no vapor or very low vapor with your Smokestik, try this easy tip.

Unscrew the cartomizer from the SmokeStik battery. Set the battery aside and notice that one end of the carto is threaded and the other is the mouth piece. The threaded end is the end that screws onto the battery. The threaded end of the cartomizer is what you will be adjusting.

Looking closely at the threaded end, you will see that there are threads on the outside, then a gap, and then the center post. The center post is the round metal circle that has a hole in the middle. The center post is what we will be adjusting so that it makes optimal contact with the SmokeStik battery. Very gently insert your fingernail into the gap between the threads and the center post and lift up on the center post while running your fingernail all the way around it. You want to lift that center post only a very small amount, so gently is the key word here. Lifting that center post allows for the best connection with your SmokeStik battery.

If you cannot fit your fingernail into that small area, you can carefully use the end of a straightened paperclip. DO NOT insert the paperclip into the center hole, but only around the edges.

The picture reflects how a paperclip is utilized because it shows the process much more clearly.

Remember when you smoked cigarettes and would tap your pack against your hand or your cigarette on the desk or table top before lighting it? It became a habit with every new pack or each cigarette. Using this trick before attaching a new carto to your SmokeStik is a great habit to get into. Once you do, you'll be resolving low or no vapor cartomizers.

Having said all of that, this trick/tip will not resolve a problem with a faulty cartomizer. It simply insures a perfect connection every time.

Re-attach the Cartomizer to the battery and enjoy your SmokeStik!
