    Question Blunt tip needles

    So silly me i bought Hcigar Kayfun 3.1 clone from vapeking and forgot to get a syringe and blunt tip needle.

    Anyone know where to get them in Melbourne as i don't really have anything else to order to justify the shipping on these items.

    Looking at chemist websites they seem to only have the syringe without the needle tips.

    I always fill my kayfuns from the top who can be arsed pulling out a syringe and a screwdriver.

    Eh, judgmental looks. Most of us should be used to it by now.

    I was doing that with my KFL for a while but always had leaking even when covering the air holes and what not.

    Blunt tip needles don't work on a 3.1es anyway, just sprays everywhere and can damage the valve seal.
    You need a plastic nozzle (so it sits in firmly and prevents back pressure), one slighty smaller than the standard syringe/e-liquid juice bottle tip, but also flexible so it compresses in the hole to seal up behind itself to prevent liquid going everywhere.

    The liqua brand ejuice bottle nozles fit as they are smaller than standard and soft and flexible, but as the plastic in the bottle to hard, the juice bottle needs to be fairly full so you can squeeze some pressure out of it.
    But it's still annoying to use as progress is very slow to fill especially if you have a decent % of VG in your mixture and the weather is cold so it's extra thick.

    Otherwise find a proper luerlock (sp?) nozzle the right size; but good luck, there's been threads and threads and threads about this here and everywhere for ages, and lots of time wasted on ebay for the right kind.
    Point is, needle tip is no good, search for the right nozzle or give up and work out top filling.
