Getting back on topic, I'm having issues with my Smileomizers as well. I love my Zeus and I love the Smilos, when they work. I'm a heavy vaper, so the wow/cool carts are good for sampling only.
In the past few weeks, I've killed three Smilos and am nervously waiting for a further ten to arrive.
My problem is that they seem to get blocked and make for a very difficult draw (I'm not a trumpet player). After soaking in near boiling water, I've tried clearing them with very thin wire with mixed results.
When I dismantled the duds, I noticed the heating wire looked 'fried' (carbon?). I'm reluctant to push through this blockage in case it destroys the Smilo.
I rotate my Smilos often, only use V4L juice, don't let the battery get too hot, don't let the Smilo dry out... I'm trying to do everything right.
Not particularly interested in Tanks or other brands, I just want my Zeus to work like the first day that I got it.
I've got some friends to buy a Zeus Starter Kit, but I'm afraid they won't be as patient as I am.
I suppose my question is this... can the Smilo be safely dismantled/cleaned to clear blockages? Video demo? Over to you Senior Members (Sir).
