The KGO: Assembly and Use

March 12, 2012

Follow these step by step instructions to assemble your new KGO starter kit and get started!

 IF THE PICTURES DO NOT MATCH YOUR KGO, YOU RECEIVED THE NEW AND UPGRADED VERSION 2.  WE ARE WORKING ON A NEW TUTORIAL BUT IN THE MEANTIME, YOU CAN USE THE SAME INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN HERE.

Here is how your kit looks when it first arrives:

Remove one complete electronic cigarette from the box:

 

Unscrew the cone that covers the atomizer:

 

Now unscrew the atomizer and cartridge:

 

Next, assemble your battery charging unit.  The kit comes with a USB cord that you can plug directly into the USB port of your computer to charge your battery.  It also comes with a wall charger.  The USB cord plugs into the wall charger as shown:
 

Now screw the battery into the end of the USB cord:

For maximum life of your battery, it is advised that you charge the battery for a full 8 hours or over night the first time you use it.  After 8 hours, use the battery in your electronic cigarette for 20 minutes, then charge it for another 1 hour.  While this isn't strictly necessary, it will greatly add to the life of your battery so it is highly recommended.

While your battery is charging, you can assemble the rest of your kit.  Both electronic cigarettes in your kit come with a blank cartridge attached to the atomizer.  This blank cartridges is not intended for use as it does not contain any filler material.  Pull it off the end of the atomizer and discard it:

Get a fresh cartridge from the box.  These are individually wrapped in plastic.  There is a plastic cap over the end of each one.  Unwrap them from the plastic, remove this cap and fill the cartridge with e-liquid.  E-liquid will seep down through the filler material.  Continue filling until the e-liquid fills up the cartridge to about level with the top of the filler material.  Your cartridge is now full and ready to use.  Put it back into the end of the atomizer and screw the atomizer onto a fresh battery.  You can replace the cone over the atomizer too:

 

Most kits come with a 5-click shut off feature.  This prevents the battery from accidentally being turned on in your purse or pocket when the unit is not in use.  To activate or deactivate this feature, press the button on the battery 5 times in quick succession.  A light in the battery button will flash several times, indicating that the unit has been turned on or off.  Your electronic cigarette is now ready for use!

Press the battery button while you draw through the cartridge.  You will find your own rhythm and style with a little practice.  Your battery will last about a day on each charge.  When the battery needs recharging, the battery button will flash and the unit will stop working.  Return it to the charger.  After the initial 8 hour charge, you only need to leave it charging until the red light on the charger turns green.

Top off the e-liquid in your cartridge regularly to keep the atomizer from running dry.  If the atomizer runs dry, it will produce a burnt taste that is quite unpleasant.  If left dry for too long, this burnt taste can become permanent, so be sure to top off your cartridge frequently.  Your cartridge will draw more e-liquid more quickly when you start with a new atomizer until the atomizer becomes thoroughly wet.  After that, just check the cartridge until you develop a sense of how often it needs to be topped off.

The KGO is a very powerful and versatile kit.  You can use a wide variety of cartomizers and tanks with your KGO in place of the atomizer/cartridge system if you prefer.
