How to Refill Your Greensmoke Electronic Cigarette CartridgesHow to Refill Your Greensmoke Electronic Cigarette Cartridges

The GreenSmoke electronic cigarette is one of the more popular electronic cigarettes on the market today. Many e-cig users have found that they prefer to use their own e-liquid or e-juice to refill the GreenSmoke e-cig cartridges after they run out of e-liquid from the initial purchase. At the time of this writing,GreenSmoke has removed refillable cartridges from the market in order to develop an easier-to-refill cartridge,but that does not mean you can’t use your own e-liquid to refill your existing cartridges.

GreenSmoke cartridges are the component of the e-cig that looks like the filter component of a traditional cigarette. The cartridge contains the e-liquid or e juice mixture that has the nicotine,flavoring,water,propylene glycol,and atomizer component of the e-cig. The atomizer is the part of the electronic cigarette which heats the electronic juice in order to create the e-cig vapor. GreenSmoke cartridges are available in five strengths of nicotine. They are:

16mg = Equivalent to non-filtered traditional smokes
8mg = Equivalent to “full flavored” traditional smokes
6mg = Equivalent to “Light” cigarettes
4mg = Equivalent to “Ultra Light” cigarettes
0mg = No nicotine,but has the same “Flavor” as the traditional smoke

Each of the cartridges is equivalent to 1 to 1.5 packs of traditional tobacco smokes.

Refilling Your GreenSmoke Cartridges

Now,there is not a “recommended” or “authorized” method published by GreenSmoke to refill the electronic cigarette cartridges,however,many e-cig users prefer to purchase or make their own e liquid to refill the cartridges after they run out of e juice from the initial purchase. You will eventually need to purchase more cartridges as the atomizer clogs or fails since they are not designed for re-use,but the advantages of refilling your own cartridges are that you will save even more money over the long term. The following is a recommended method to consider if you are going to refill your own GreenSmoke cartridges.

How to Refill Your GreenSmoke Cartridges

Step 1 – Take the White Rubber Cap off of the end of the cartridge using tweezer or a small screwdriver. Some of the cartridge models will also have a clear rubber o-ring that you need to remove. Don’t lose this o-ring as it helps keep the e juice out of your mouth.

Step 2 – Use a syringe to add your e liquid along the outside wall of the cartridge. Generally,you will be putting .5 ml of e juice in the cartridge if using a syringe. If you do not have a syringe,this will be about 17-20 droplets. A word of warning here,go a little lower on the amount until you get proficient with refilling your own cartridges. Using a syringe is recommended over just dripping the e liquid since it is harder to over-fill the cartridge with a syringe.

Step 3 – Replace the Electronic Cigarette cartridge rubber cap. If it has an o-ring,the o-ring will go on first.

Step 4 – Roll the cartridge between your hands (similar to warming your hands) with the white cap pointed in the air for approximately 15 seconds. This is to evenly distribute the e juice inside of the cartridge.

Step 5 – Re-attach the e-cig battery and you are finished.

Safety Warnings:

  • If you are using the drip method,you should drip it around the inside edges of the electronic cigarette.
  • Some people recommend blowing on the top of the cartridge if you think you have over filled it to get rid of the excessive e juice. This is very dangerous as e juice is poisonous to ingest.
  • Consider wearing rubber gloves when refilling e liquid due to its poisonous nature
  • Keep e juice/e liquid out of the reach of children. It is poisonous.

    I’m very disturbed by this. If it’s poisonous to get on your hands or in your mouth…how is it safe to smoke?

    Hi Tyler,
    Nicotine is hazardous. By taking the proper safety precautions,you can avoid issues with skin contact. By not wearing the appropriate protective equipment if choosing to refill your own cartridges,then you are putting yourself at risk. I have several friends who choose not to fill their own cartridges because they don’t trust themselves to always be safe when doing so. Several others who have no problems. Comes down to personal responsibility and personal choice on how you want to refill your e cig cartridges if you are a vapor smoker. Hope this helps.

    Can you use the GreenSmoke cartridge on other e-cigs? Does anyone know if the GreenSmoke battery is a LR808 battery? I guess the next question is;can we use other cartridges on GreenSmoke batteries?

    Since I have started green smoking I have noticed that my face is breaking out in clear fluid bubbles,I also have the red “acne”sores breaking out. Not sure if this is related or not but I have NEVER had acne before and I just turned 44 yesterday so…

    Hi Dawn,
    If the acne breaking out is due to the vapor smoking,then it is very possibly related to the propylene glycol contained in the vapor after doing some research for you (I have not had anyone report this before).

    If you enjoy vapor smoking,I recommend taking a look at switching to a VG-based (vegetable glycerin) e liquid or e juice that you can find at Johnson Creek to alleviate the problem.

    This article covers their original flavor,you will want to check out their Red Oak line (VG-based e liquid).

    Best of luck.

    Ted,
    The newer carts are difficult to get the caps off. I use the metal loop off a binder clip to pull mine off. You need to pull fairly hard and work it off side-to-side.

    Hey Ted,
    You probably got this figured out by now but the best “tool”I have found to get the lids off is an inflation needle like for basketballs,etc. Put the needle end in the hole and pry it against a couple of the sides. It also keeps the white cap and the clear o-ring from flying off into oblivion when they break loose.

    Hi ….I just started refilling,tried different tools to remove the cap but I always end up deforming it. So,I decided to use a syringe needle for refilling…no more deformed caps!
