The smilomizer will begin getting overly warm as you vape, followed by a tightening of the draw. Of the 2 I've cleaned, it will produce a extra day or so of reduced performance vaping. After dismantling 2 units, I have found a
hot spot approximately mid point on the air tube that actually burns the inside of the tube. While not unexpected since this is on par with most cartomizers, one would not expect to refill a standard cart 12 times (hence the low cost). Don't get me wrong, I like the design of the smilomizer, and might be able to justify the price if it delivered as advertised. It seems that if it uses the standard poly fill, coil system etc.., I fail to see how it can perform 3-4 times the lifespan just because it holds more liquid. I use it as my all day, everyday tape for the past couple of weeks with the same results. Now, if there is something I'm missing, great, but if not, I would love to see honest statements of use for the product descriptions. This is also the case for the charging / use times of the DAV'S ,which everyone seems to agree with yet they are advertised with much more favorable ratings than anyone could be experiencing.

It's very common for any company to advertise the best case scenario - compare it with the battery lifetimes for anything from a smart phone to a tablet. Point being they list the optimistic outlook as the sell point. I don't think I've ever had any of those electronic devices meet the listed battery life, but I accept that I'm kind of a power user - other people do get the more optimistic result.
In regards to the smileo, I'd say they meet the advertised points in many cases, just not for everyone. There is so much that can vary depending on the type of liquid, usage patterns, etc. I could be incorrect but it sounds to me that you may be vaping heavily for extended durations without giving the carto (smileo, tank, etc) time to recover. They need a break when used heavily to allow the liquid to flow via capillary action and replace what has been vaporized. In my experience, this quickly kills just about anything out there whether it be a standard carto, tank carto, smileomizer, etc. You might try swapping out during heavy vaping to avoid that scenario - it's what I've learned to do when I'm really vaping heavily (if I don't, I usually burn the thing out).
Constructive criticism is usually a good thing, it is how products are improved and it really seems to me that Vapor4Life cares and listens to feedback from us. However, I would propose that it is rather harsh to insinuate that they are being deceptive. I can understand being frustrated, but if you look in the forums here there are plenty of us who are actually quite pleased with the lifetimes of the smileomizers.
Take it as you will, just my opinion on the matter, and certainly hope you take no offense.

Using a smilomizer as a "in the mix" device, or 1ml a day, does not provide the same performance feedback as using it in a stand alone scenario . I would appreciate senior members trying to use the product solely for an extended period so we can weigh both the positives, negatives and variables which effect performance.
