Ever had a pleasant vaping session suddenly turn sour with an unexpected burnt taste from your e-cigarette? This sudden shift in taste can be quite alarming and a definite mood-killer.
There are several methods to prevent your e-cigarette from developing a burnt taste. Here are some steps you can take:
Monitor Your Clearomizer
The first step is to examine your clearomizer. Ensure that it holds an adequate level of e-liquid (ideally, more than half full). If it’s running low, replenish it and allow a few minutes for the liquid to settle.
Inspect Your Battery
Next, look at the settings on your battery or mod to prevent your resistance coil from overheating. Generally, you shouldn’t exceed 20 watts on standard use devices. For more information, refer to our guide on resistance coils.
If the burnt taste persists, consider replacing your resistance coil.
Adopt Slower Vaping
Allow time between puffs to ensure the wick on your resistance coil can absorb enough e-liquid.
Understanding the Burnt Taste
If your usual e-liquid suddenly develops an unfamiliar burnt edge to its flavor, it’s time to troubleshoot. This sign indicates a looming issue known as a dry hit.
Paying attention to your e-cigarette’s flavor is crucial. The flavor quality depends not only on the e-liquid’s aromatic composition but also on your resistance coil’s condition. The more frequently you use your e-cigarette, the more likely your resistance coil is to accumulate residues, especially if you use a sweet e-liquid.
The Importance of a Well-Moistened Wick
A phenomenon that all vapers want to avoid is the overheating of the coil, potentially producing an abnormal level of potentially toxic compounds in the vapor, such as aldehydes. This can occur if your resistance coil’s wick isn’t sufficiently saturated with e-liquid, potentially leading to the wick burning. Ensuring adequate liquid supply to the wick is essential, and you should immediately stop vaping if there are any signs of this problem.
In case of a persistent burnt taste, it’s crucial not to ignore this signal. This taste indicates a problem that needs to be promptly addressed. Following the steps above should help you rectify the situation with ease.
Don’t Give Up on Vaping
Finally, if you’re finding e-cigarettes too complex or feel they’re not suitable for you, don’t despair. There’s a vaping solution for everyone. The key goal is to escape the harmful effects of tobacco and completely eradicate cigarette smoke from your life. Be patient, explore different devices, and remember: your health will benefit immensely from permanently quitting tobacco.
