    Default Volt Mini Clearomizers + Johnson Creek Vanda and Rainier = HORRIBLE! Why?

    I just bought four Smokeless Image Volt mini-clearomizers and two varieties of Johnson Creek juice, Vanda (vanilla) and Rainer (Cherry), both VG only. I put the juice in the clearomizers and they're AWFUL! God-awful! Acrid, stinging, burning, and totally unpleasant. I tried Highbrow Pure Pear in one of the same clearomizer and it works/tastes pretty good. With the Johnson Creek flavors in the Volt Clearomizers, there is much popping/sizzling also when I activate the battery.

    Do these Johnson Creek flavors just SUCK when they're used in Volt clearos? Should I be vaping them with a different setup?

    I've tried a lot of Johnson Creek juice and it's all sucked. If that helps

    VG juices like those generally have a higher viscosity. They tend not to wick as well and therefore easily gunk your coils and/burn.

    So yeah, the relevant difference is your delivery system.

    I'm not sure about the volt clearos (mini T3s?) but I mod my protank heads by taking the extra flavor wick out so that high viscosity juice can wick more easily. Maybe there's a similar modification you can make?

    Volt Mini Clearomizers Those are the clearomizers I'm using, and yes, I'd do anything to modify them to improve the flavor/flow so it's not a total waste of money.

    ok those are top coil. You will have to tilt and swirl your device to make sure that thick liquid gets up to the wicks and the coil at the very top. Otherwise you will get one nasty dry hit which is what your description sounds like.

    You could also try thinning your juice a little bit with a few drops of vodka or distilled water. I do mean DROPS. It will not take much.

    To be honest I wouldn't expect much from people who call their juices Vanda and Rainer. I dread to think what their kids are called....

    lol.

    I like a few JC juices. Especially their original and their TN cured.

    I did not care for their Rainer though. Although I gave it to someone else who likes it alot.

    But yeah, all VG juices tend to require more effort to wick properly

    And don't forget to steep. I had a JC liquid (forget the name) that took 6 weeks of aging before it tasted pretty good. Not Boba's, that's for sure, but was tasty.
