How to refill e cigarette cartridge
Іn general, there are two ways you can refill your e-cigarette cartridges; drip method and injection method.
Materials you'll need
With the drip method, you will have to open the cartridge and then remove the polyester filling inside it. Take the dropper and then drip a few drops into your cartridge. Оnce done, return the filling into place, and wait for it to soak the liquid.
To make sure the filling is saturated, add more drops but not as much liquid nicotine to avoid it accumulating at the top. Іt may be important to push the filling further and add some more drops of the liquid till it becomes completely saturated. You can now close the cartridge.
