How to Clean your CARTA 2 and Intelli-Core for Oil
70%-90% Isopropyl Alcohol, 50% Isopropyl Wipe, container or cup, small towel (paper towel), and a funnel.
Getting Everything Ready:
First start by pouring your 70-90% liquid isopropyl into a container (make sure it is safe for use with isopropyl alcohol). Once set, begin disassembling your unit into three parts, your CARTA Classic Base, Everlast Atomizer, and CARTA Glass Top.
*NOTE if your atomizer is stuck on the unit do not force it off, heat the unit up on the lowest setting to loosen. Remove when the atomizer is cooled to room temperature and safe to touch.
Cleaning Your Intelli-Core for Oil:
Beginning with the atomizer, make sure it is cooled off and safe to handle before touching. Warming the atomizer can make removal safer and easier. Remove the atomizer from the base unit by grasping it from the lower cylinder and turning it counterclockwise. It should unthread easily without resistance. Once removed take off the silicone bumper and carb cap tether. Once all silicone accessories have been removed you can place your atomizer into your container with alcohol.
When you have everything broken down and sitting in your container, set a timer for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, give the dish a shake and remove the items. Thoroughly dry with a towel and set aside in a warm or sunny area for 1-2 hours to fully dry. Make sure no moisture remains before reassembling.
Cleaning Your Glass Top:
Now that your atomizer is clean, let’s move on to that glass top. Grab your funnel, insert it into the mouthpiece of your glass top, and pour. Fill to just over the perks. Then use a stopper or your finger to cover the mouthpiece and shake for 30-60 seconds. Pour out the isopropyl into your dish and then place the glass top standing upright into the dish. This will flush out any leftover wax in the bottom portion of the top. Soak for 1-5 minutes depending on the amount of reclaim. After everything is looking shiny, rinse the top with water until all isopropyl is removed.
Cleaning your CARTA 2 Base:
Almost done! Now let’s get the base cleaned up. Grab your 50% isopropyl wipes and clean the atomizer connection points. Focus on the gold contact pin and ensure no wax is present. Now we can move onto the base, use a clean wipe to remove any residue from the silicone area that connects to the glass top. Use a swab dipped in alcohol to clean airpath if needed. Next, if there are any stains on the exterior of your base lightly rub them off with a clean and then dry completely and immediately.
Now just reassmble your CARTA 2 device and you're good to go!
*NOTE Never pour any liquids on the exterior of the base, if exposed make sure to dry immediately.
*NOTE If you hear any crackling upon firing a session after a deep cleaning with isopropyl, immediately cancel the session and properly clean/dry the atomizer.
