Hey all, looking for a little advice.
I've been using the Vivi Nova v2 for about 3 weeks. In the process of the 3 weeks, I changed out the juice flavors many times, but always taking it apart to wash it before doing so. Everything was working fine until today. I wanted to try a new head to see if I could tell a difference in taste. (Been using the 1.8ohm heads on my Kgo) So i took it apart, cleaned it up, and poped on a new head. Filled it back up, let the wicks absorb the juice a little, and tried it out. I noticed a burnt taste like I was just vaping with no juice, and just tasting the coils inside the head itself. I drew on it few more times, and it started to produce vapor like it should. But the burnt taste still remained. I countined to vape it on and off for few hours. Sometimes the burnt taste would be stronger, and sometimes it would be weak, but it was always there. I decided to try another head, but this time a 2.5ohm one with the same kgo (thats the only battery I have). I seemed to taste a burnt taste with this as well, but this could very well be my taste buds messing with me since the taste was still lingering in my mouth. the draw was to weak to produce a good vapor as i figured it would be, but I wanted to try it anyways. Regardless, I swapped back to my old 1.8 head from there. Same thing. Burnt taste. Again, it may have been my taste buds just messed up from the new head. I then went BACK to the new 1.8ohm head, and tried it again. Same results still. Burnt.. I then took it apart once again, but this time cleaning the crap out of everything. Srubbing down the take itself, the base, everything. Put it back together, and decided to take an air draw from it. First I took a draw just from the base itself with no head on it, and the taste was gone. Put the head on, and the taste was VERY strong just from drawing air from it. So there I absolutely new it was the head.
In light of all this, I then again took it apart ONCE MORE, and this time soaking it in water for 5-6 hours. Heads and all. I just took everything out of the water, and now letting everything air dry. I have not tried it again, but in all honesty I dont have high hopes.
I have not changed anything execpt for the head itself. I dont understand why a brand new head would produce such a bad taste, and contiune to linger. I've tried messing with the silicon top cover moving it up and down to make sure juice is being feed, and still no luck.
SO! My main questions are. How often do you actually need to replace these heads, and what are signs that you need to do so. And judging by the above info I've given you what would be causing this issue? Why such a bad taste, and now seems stick around. Bad head? Sometimes wrong, thats for sure.
Alright, thats it. Thank you for anyone who posts because any info on this would be much appericated.
