    Default Bad taste from Iclear 30?

    Just got my MVP 2.0 today and love it. I got an Iclear 30 with it. I've never used the Iclear 30 before so I was excited to give it a try. I loaded it up with some Boba's Bounty and while it hits great, the taste is very bad. It kind of has an oily greasy taste to it. I have Iclear 16's that Boba's tastes fine in so it's not my juice. I've tried different vv/vw settings but the nasty taste is still there.

    Should I have washed the Iclear 30 before using it? Hope a good rinse will help because I really like the hit from it. Has anyone else had this happen with the Iclear 30?

    BTW, the MVP 2.0 is really nice. Money well spent.

    generally, it's not a problem,,,,,,,,,rinse it well, dry off those wicks, blow out the water, etc etc,,,,,,,,,,fill it up again and let it sit for 5 minutes to really soak in,,,,,,,,,,,,,,let us know,,,,,,

    Yeah mine did the same thing. Just rinse it Real good and let the wicks juice up afterwards.

    Be warned though, its a real juice-hog and you'll probably find yourself using more juice than with other clearos. After the novelty wore off I went back to using MT3s on my MVP 2.0 instead.

    I also just bought an mvp v2 (L O V E IT )
    I didn't have to wash mine out, but every so often (once or twice a day) I'll take a few drags and get a burnt taste for one or two puffs, so make sure to keep the wicks moist ( I don't follow the turn it upside down rule), I tend to turn mine until the wicks are wet and leave it there for a few seconds and do that with all of the wicks. I also think it has to do with what kind of juice your using which will correspond with the overall taste ( but I'm new to the whole mod world so I'm not an expert, nor do I claim to be) lol

    I totally agree with Golem it is a VERY thirsty tank, I noticed I went trough roughly 3 mls in about 24 hrs and a 15 ml bottle tends to last me over 2 weeks , I have a strong feeling that I'll be switching to the protankII I bought because I wasn't sure I'd like the Iclear30, and to see if that'll also help me slow down the vast speed at which I am going through my juice.

    Hope this helps.

    also here's a link to an mvp discussion I have found quite helpful

    Yes, the iclear30 loves its juice. It is one of the reasons the taste is typically better than on a pro tank(at least for some).

    Dual top coils, 16 long wicks(really 8, but you get the drill) all lead to a warm moist flavorful vape, but it also means its a juice hog.

    As far as a nasty taste, I have gone through several heads on my iclears and not had that problem, but I clean all of my new heads. No matter what the device, I give it a vodka bath for an hour and then let it air out.

    Only time I have any issues with the iclear is when I burn them too hot and get a burnt taste. Otherwise I love these.

    I'm using 100% VG Legend from heather's Heavenly Vapes right now in my iClear30 (not S), and it's freakin' awesome. In fact, I had some gurgling/leaking the last time I used a 50/50, but I think it was just a bad coil head in that one. Now it's hitting like a champ and the flavor is fantastic.

    It's never a bad idea to rinse anything that comes from a factory before use, however.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I washed it and have it drying now and will post back later when I try it out again.
