    Unhappy What's the matter, sand in your connector?

    Precisely.

    Took my eVic to the beach over holidays, although I was super careful with it I managed to get some sand particles down in the connector. Now combined with juice it makes a crunchy sound when I connect the atty. Still works fine, just annoying.

    Any of you super smart people have a method of getting it out?

    Love you long time

    Canned air?
    Maybe a soak in 99% isoprophyl Alcohol, dry and then canned air?

    That is what I would do.

    fill the connector with vodka then use a straw maybe ? might not get rid of the sand but after enough goes you won't care a great deal anymore about it

    maybe some of them skinny cotton buds would do the trick for ya

    Next time use a zip lock back, with a small hole to fit the drip tip. No sand at all.

    Use a toothpick or a piece of tissue rolled to a point to get the sand out.
