    Default brand new ego t ce6 clearomiser burnt taste

    i bought a ce6 clearomiser just over a weak ago and it was brilliant it had a rich flavour and good amount of vapor but i gained a leakage problem which i found out was to do with the threaded ring had misplaced on the mouthpeice, i took it back to my local store today and they replaced the whole clearomiser for me and gave me a full refill and within 10 minutes of having it i had at most 6 draws on it which didnt produce any flavor or very much vapor and then was suddenly hit with a very burnt taste.

    i did leave it to soak in for a few minutes before using it,

    has anybody else had this issue and is there anything that could have done wrong or not done atall which would have made this happen? or does anybody know of a way to solve this issue as i will not be able to take it back again for a few days now because the shops opening times dont agree with my work times

    i have heard of recent versions that you need to do something to clear some priming fluid? none of this has ever been explained to me in the store i presume they must do all that themselves as they like to set up everything for you and are usually very helpfull

    also if it helps im currently using a 16mg watermelon liquid which also came from the store and was recommended by them it says on the bottle t.b.m.s. ltd i guess thats the make

    any help or advice will be much appreciated

    are you tipping it to the side and letting the juice catch the top of the head?

    with my redux.. i get about 6-8 good draws before i need to tip it around again.. let the juice reach the top and then I'm ok for a bit

    i'm not sure about the primer fluid issue you mentioned.. i've never heard of that issue or dealt with it personally

    whenever you can.. try getting an iclear30 (little more expensive but well worth it - about 10-15$ depending on where you can find them) its the best clearo out imo and i've tried a good amount. ive been using for a week and never had 1 burnt taste and barely ever have to tip it or clean it.

    Hello from Chorley

    What battery are you using? Ego type?

    The O ring on the mouthpiece missing is no biggie and won't effect the flavour.

    Primer fluid? No idea mate.

    A burnt taste is usually due to too much power going through your clearo.

    yeah its got wicks on either side running to the bottom and both are soaked but i still tilt it for a few seconds first but it doesnt have any effect, with my last one i didnt have the issue at all it just started leaking because of the mouthpeice, i wasnt sure about the priming fluid stuff but i read it somewhere else online

    ive got the ego t 650mah battery and the mouthpeice is fixed now it a whole new clearo, and i thought it could be getting to hot, i looked into it and it glows bright red and crackles slightly but then i thought the wicking might not be feeding the coil with enough liquid so i tried putting a couple of drops straight onto the coil where the wicking runs through it and it works for one go but i cant keep doing that everytime i want to use it

    i would try cleaning it out.. maybe with some warm water / vodka and then let it dry and re-fill it .. either way start looking at a little more expensive clearo's .. its worth the $ for it and the replacement heads if you won't need to deal with this headache ever again lol!

    or you can always bring it back and see if they know why its like being like that (I know how it is trying to get to the vendor shops during the work week, I can only go on Sat's) but its possible it's just busted.. those things as always get shipped from china and are not made very well sometimes.

    il look into it, this one has the changable coil heads but that means paying even more ontop of what ive already spent, and i know what you mean about the quality, the plastic moves where it slots into the bit thats screws into battery and it makes a gap where the rubber seal on top of the coil meets the moutpeice and makes the tank fill with vapor and leak into the mouthpeice

    Might be a bad batch of clearos from your supplier. It shouldn't be getting hot unless you really cane it and then it still really shouldn't get that hot. Have you brimmed it with juice? Have you another battery to try it on? Really does sound as though the fluid is not getting up the wick enough. I would agree with BostonVape and say give it a clean but if it's a new clearo I can't see that helping. You might have to "drip" until you sort it.

    Just read your last post Adam. Have a look on the coil. It should have an Ohm rating on it. I found that anything over 1.8 did not work on my 650 battery.
