    Unhappy Vape starting to taste funny...

    Ok, I'm fairly new to vaping and having an issue (I'm using an 1000mAh eGo Twist with a kanger t2 clearomizer)

    I've smoked a pack a day for the last 10 years and as of a week ago today I've been smoke free but I'm worried, let me explain... Last night after vaping all day (a chocolate, coffee, caramel flavor) I grap my eGo and all of a sudden it tastes horrible! I mean just plain bad. I'm not sure how to describe it really. I thought maybe it was dry and with the clearo having the atty at the top with short wicks it made sense so I laid it down on it's side and let the juice sit near the wicks for a couple minutes and tried again and the flavor only got worse. The clearo has changeable coils so I popped a new one in to see if that would help but same result. I grabbed another clearo that was already loaded with a different flavor (menthol + apple) and while not as bad it had that same bad taste. I brushed my teeth, drank some water, popped an altoid all in an effort to cleanse my palate but none of those worked. I went to bed and hoped I could figure something out in the morning. When I woke up it tasted fine

    I've been vaping at work all day no issue but just now I started to get a similar taste again... it's like the I lose all sense of flavor and am left with a harsh almost bitter taste on the exhale. Still getting good vaper production and the menthol flavor isn't as bad, I can still taste some menthol but not so much the apple and it has a lesser bitterness to it

    I feel like I'm going crazy, is there something I can do?

    Sounds like something is clogged or burning. Sorry don't know the equipment to offer specific advise.

    If it is a metallic taste you could have a sinus infection. Does food taste okay?

    It will be quite awhile before your sense of taste and smell recover from years of smoking. I went through the same thing, either bad taste or NO taste. Give it some time and it will definately get better. Congrats on 1 week!!!

    Mud-mouth. I've had days like that, try 20 diff juices and they all taste like wet dog. Next day...all good. You'll have that. A week ago or so I ate a sack of vinegar chips....couldn't taste anything for two days. No mo vinegar chips!

    Thanks njay!

    Food tastes fine, and it seems only towards the end of the day, in the morning it's back to normal and it only started last night. I was hoping it was a one time deal but it's starting to taste bad again.

    I have some boge cartos on order and some different clearos that should be here by Friday. I have 3 clearos on hand all with different flavors so I'm not sure if the boge cartos will be any different.

    My juice is 18mg strength which I figured would be cutting it close to match my normal nicotine intake (was at least a pack a day) I've been vaping about 3ml give or take a day so far, am I vaping too much?

    I would say yes to vaping to much. At least when I vape more than 2ml I start to get very dry, bad tasting juice (even some food) and headaches. I too vape 18mg. Even peppermint juices with added flavoring got strange and medicine like or plasticky rubbery like. Hard to describe.
    I like cheese

    I've been on the vape for2 1/2 months after 23 years of analogs. I expierenced the loss of taste about a week in as well & a couple times since. I've read that vaping can dry your taste buds & have since become a drink-aholic... not booze, but water & even soda. Really helps & havnt lost sense of taste in a couple months (knock on wood) trick is to recognize early & hydrate. And keep vaping, don't get frustrated & hit a butt!

    I've heard drinking extra water helps as well. I think there;s something to that. As far as vaping too much...I dunno, I'm a chain vaper of the highest order and it doesn't seem to affect me. Just some days I get mud-mouth. I have some cinnamon apple menthol that will melt yer eyeballs, but when I get mud-mouth, even that stuff won't cut it. LOL!

    Awesome, thanks for the replies! I know I don't drink enough water as it is so that makes sense. I'll drink plenty of water for the next couple of hours and report back if that fixes it. Hopefully it works that quickly and I can salvage my vape for tonight.

    No analogs yet and now I that I know to stay hydrated (which I should be doing anyway) hopefully I won't have this issue anymore.
