Vape Pen cartridge air bubble fix

Vape Pen cartridge air bubble fix

A few people have had an issue with the pre-filled clear co2 cartridges where a small air bubble develops around the wick at the base of the cartridge. This prevents the wick from absorbing any more oil and makes it difficult to get a proper medicated drag. Luckily there’s an easy fix. Remove the mouthpiece of the cartridge, if it’s metal then it’s likely a twist off (it might be a bit stuck, but it will come off). If it’s plastic, it’s likely a snap off mouthpiece. Beneath that there’s a little blue rubber stopper that seals in the oil. Remove and replace that piece several times. Every time you replace it, the seal will force air pressure on the oil, pushing it down onto the wick. Replace the mouthpiece and you’re all set.

  1. Thank you for this video! I did not expect to find such an easy fix for the bubble I have in my cartridge — I’m going to try it right now. Woot!

  2. My cartridge does not have that rubber stopper, I suppose it’s a different brand. Is there another texhnique you know of?

  3. I had that problem with a krush cartridge and I read that if you have a blow dryer put it on low warm air and hit your cartridge for about 30 seconds, I couldn’t find one so I just hit it with a blow torch for a few seconds and it worked perfectly

  4. While we can’t recommend that due to the clear part of the cartridge being plastic, I have a friend who does the same thing with a torch lighter, just waves it near the cartridge, and it works for him. BE CAREFUL though.

    Edit: as I just mentioned to another commenter, you could try placing the cartridge in a SEALED plastic baggie and then floating the baggie in very warm water. That way you’re not risking damage to the cartridge which could happen with a torch.

  5. Daniel, Without knowing what the cartridge has in place of the rubber stopper, it would be hard to recommend a technique. Getting the cartridge warm enough for the oil to flow is probably your best option though. Placing it between your palms and rolling back and forth, or perhaps placing it in a SEALED plastic baggie and then floating the baggie in very warm water would be two ways of doing that.

  6. I know this dude that is full retard that jacked 2 carts in a row up by 4.8 volts. This video might help him. Well, with his cart. Not his tardedness.

    Yes. Leave the rubber protector on the bottom of the cartridge. The one that’s there when you purchase it. Make sure it’s firmly in place and unscrew/pop off the top. Then while keeping the protecter on the bottom, screw on the top and you should see air bubbles start to come out of the chamber. Proceed with caution though, if you go too fast, the oil will spill over the top.

  8. I have been using Standard Farming cartridges. They come prefillled with a plastic tubing and a glass mouthpiece. How do I open it and get the air bubbles out?

  9. Hi, my cartridge is from CaliPiff the mouth piece does not seem to be able to come apart. I’ve tried twisting and pulling, is there any other way to get the oil out of here so I can transfer it to another cart. Thank you!

  10. For the ones with out the stopper just use your Tounge to stop air from flowing through the center and blow with light pressure and it will push it down. Be careful not to blow to hard it will mess up the whole cart…

  11. Not impresses with the quality so far in three complete failures in the Elite cartridge, plz advise.

  13. Fabulous tips. I tried the lighter method on a cart with oil sticking to the sides near the top, probably due to prior bubbles. All the lovely juice is now at the bottom. Be careful though – my cart was plastic and now has a small bump. Still works.

  14. The lighter trick works to move the bubble back up just swipe it through the flame and warm it up and move it back n forth.
    I am currently using the brand Flying Monkey from my local distributer in town and I could not get the tip to pop or twist off.

  15. I just did it! I used an hair dry and put it on low and put in pointing down into the mouth piece and around the outside where the core would be. And sit it up vertical so it will warm up and flow down with gravity and since it warms it getting the bubbles out and pushing the oil back into the airseal.

    I carefully used a bic lighter on the glass. Passed the cart through the flame just long enough to slightly heat it. (1 or 2 seconds per pass). Tried not to cook the contents in the process. Bubble gone
