    Default Cartimizer bad taste, blank freshly filled, why?

    Title says it all. 510 cartimizer. I unpacked it and filled it with a syringe and it just taste bad. What did I do wrong?

    What are you using it on, a 510 battery?

    I had the same problem. Filled two with two new flavors, and both tasted aweful. Just to make sure I filled one with juice I know I like, and it was still bad. Let it sit for a couple of days (it probably doesn't take that long, but that's how long it took me to get the guts to try it again) and it's fine now. Maybe the first time filling they need time to soak all the way in?

    I am using it on a mod with a 14500 battery. I will wait and see if it gets better but should it be cleaned first?

    I just stuck the caps back on and left it. I did rinse the flavor out and put one I liked better, but just left it for a while and now it's fine.

    What I mean by clean is do you clean them when they are just out of the package and have to wait for them to dry out?

    I have never heard anyone say to clean them when new. Even when I asked a couple days ago about the bad taste, it wasn't mentioned. They take quite a while to sry out, so if that was part of the process, I think it would be mentioned.
    When I first filled it, it was making a crackling noise, that someone on here had said was the inner filler burning. I think once that inner filler is fully saturated, it no longer burns, and therefor, no longer tastes bad.

    The reson I ask about the battery is because some of the 510 cartos have a low resistance level and 5 volts is too high. Makes them taste burnt. Thats what I discovered anyway.

    Check out the thread right below this one. I think that's where I got the "it must be burning" idea.
