No one likes a burnt under taste in food and especially not in your e-liquid that is being vaporized. Burnt or over saturated vape coils are a common complaint and can really mess with the experience of vaping as well as your equipment in general. This article will cover the basics of how to avoid such blunders so that you can continue to enjoy your vape, free from the unpleasantness that is burnt or over saturated coils.
To start, the problem when it comes to burnt and or oversaturated coils is a lack of knowledge. With the vaping market, still very much in its infancy, and an influx of customers, some vapers just don't know how to care for, or properly set up the unit. The problem also comes from user error. Doing something like vaping at a higher wattage than you coil can’t handle is going to ruin that coil.
Secondly, being cheap is not a good thing when it comes to vaping. Coils do not last forever and they need to be replaced roughly every 2-3 weeks, but the taste of your e-juice will let you know when it is time for a new one. There are some vapers who opt to clean their coils in order to save money, but I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you have an advanced vaping knowledge, as it can compromise the taste and enjoyment of your vape experience.
Next, if your coil is not primed (or broken in) properly then you also run the risk of getting that burnt taste. If you are new to vaping then I would suggest you visit YouTube for some tutorials and save yourself the future heartache. Furthermore, oversaturation can be caused by improper filling of the tank. That can cause what is known as “tank flooding” and can end up ruining your equipment. You can save a unit from damage caused by a flooded tank.
Now, you need to know how to keep you device clean, treat it like you would a cup or saucer, give it love and it will love you right back. Proper care tips include a simple dump out and rinse off your tank (that has been disconnected from the electronic cigarette or MOD first) and then letting it air dry.
Finally, slow your roll because vaping is not meant to replace chain smoking. If you don't give your device breaks, you are going to burn it out quicker than you wanted and have to go buy more coils. Ideally, you should try and wait for the vapor to dissipate before your next hit!
Other possibilities that can cause that burnt taste can be: You don't have enough juice in it; so dry wicking. A leaking tank which can be caused by a loose O-ring. The flavor may not be for you. To elaborate, some vape juices have a lot of VG (Vegetable Glycerin which is a base ingredient in vape juice) and some units can only handle specific amounts of VG.
