I'm having another bad vaping day. I don't know what the problem with my stuff is but I'm feeling very frustrated with all of it. I am using a Riva, an Ego Twist, and a regular Ego battery. As far as delivery systems I'm using one Smoketech DCT tank w/ either a smoketech carto or another carto that I thought was smoketech but not so sure anymore once I looked at the website I bought it from. One has 1 hole, one has 3 holes. Neither one gives a very good draw. I feel like I'm trying to suck a very thick milkshake through a thin straw and getting a very thin trickle of vapor but it also has an airy feel to it when I draw on it. Getting very little flavor and virtually no throat hit.
I'm also using a couple of the Stardust V2. While I am getting a better draw off of one of them, I am not off of another. Both the stardusts have a strange aftertaste (not burnt, but strange) and the draw is not consistent. I've tried blowing out all of them to no avail. I decided to break out a regular boge carto and see how that was. It's not much better.
Lastly, ALL of my batteries will blink when I draw off of the dct tank or the stardust. The batteries are fully charged and will blink five or six times then stop but continue to work. I don't take excessively long draws, maybe 5 or 6 seconds. Before a couple of days ago I was getting good flavor, good draws, and easy vaping out of everything. Now, nothing seems to be working right.
Could it be that my batteries are not any good. Would I do better with a VV? Or is it my delivery systems? What else is out there, besides dripping? I like the convenience of the tank and stardusts but right now they really suck!
