    Default CE 5 burnt taste

    I bought the CE5 tanks because they were simple to use but sometimes they taste burnt. I don't want to build anything I just want something easy to use. I have my first VW VV mod on the way the Vamo2. Can anyone suggest some settings that work well with this tank? Also if you can recommend any other tanks that are better for the Vamo2? I also am looking for a good Black Cherry Ejuice that tastes like the Johnson Creek kind not cough drops. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Cindy

    Are you tipping the unit so the juice can get up to the coil? The wicks lose the battle with gravity. What are the ohms of the coil you're using and the voltage of your supplying to the coil?

    Burnt taste is usually from too high of setting on a VV or needing a new head. The coils get a buildup over time, will taste bad, and may even irritate your throat or sinuses.
    An alternative to replacing the head is to "dry burn" to remove the buildup.
    I have to burn my nova off every week to prevent a burnt taste. Been using the same coil for months.

    -remove the clearo and empty it
    -rinse it out with water
    -unscrew the tank from the base
    -lift off the soft plastic piece from the head(where the wick goes in)
    -rinse the inside of the head and wicks, gentle with the wicks
    -blot the wicks semi-dry with a paper towel (again, gently)
    -put it back on the battery
    -fire it until the smoke stops coming off it. you'll have to do it in bursts to keep the battery from shutting off. the coil will glow red
    -remove it from the battery, let it cool for a few minutes
    -rinse and blot dry again
    -reassemble

    It's ready to go and should taste like new again (It will take a few puffs to dry the water). Sounds like a lot but it only takes a couple of minutes.

    If the wick is fouled (black after burning it off and rinsing) there's not really much you can do. It won't wick as well because It's clogged.
    Soaking it in vodka will help but it's a lot of trouble, so I just replace it at that point.

    Yes I have been tilting it. The Juicemate atomizers are 2.2 ohms. I am not sure of the voltage because I don't have a VV or VW mod yet. The battery says 3.7 volts but not sure if that's what it is running. These 18650 batteries are old and I have some new ones on the way. I will try your cleaning method DKP#Thanks for your help Bacc.vap. & DKP#. I am so glad I found this site it's very informative & since I'm a noob I appreciate any advice I get.

    The idea behind regulated mods is to customize your voltage to your taste, I personally hover around 8-10 watts on higher resistance coils (1.8-3ohm) and I switch to voltage mode when I have lower impedance coils (1.3-1.6) and hover around 3-4v. I would ditch to top wick clearomizers because you'll be able to compensate the cooler vape by adding voltage and I have never had a bad hit in a BCC.

    Your batteries come off the charger at 4.2v, if you're using an unregulated mod, like it sounds your are, the voltage drops as you drain the battery giving you a weaker vape till you recharge them. If you don't have an electrical meter it'd be a good idea to pick up a cheap one, you don't want to drain the batts to low before charging.

    I agree with DKP#, if the burnt taste comes after using the clearo for a while, then it probably just needs cleaning or replacement.

    Not always a good idea to 'ditch the top coils.'

    I tried evods, protanks, davids, etc.

    I won't say I hate bottom coils, but they now sit in a draw unused and am moving to iclear30's and iclear16's. And am trying carto tanks.

    And yes, I have vv/vw devices. No amount of cranking up fixes the airy draw and lack of flavor...to me...I get out of bottom coil devices.

    To the op, taste is subjective. You will have to find what you like. Try some top and bottom coil devices at various watts(or volts) to see what you like.

    On the vamo, I usually stay around 6-8 watts with top coil clearos. I find that 'my range'. I would reccomed the iclear 30 for a vamo. Easy to use, sits nice on a vamo, and the coils last a long time. And to me, very nice flavor.

    Bunt taste on the ce5's to me is usually because I am chain vaping them an the wicks can't keep up. Tilt. Make sure your tank has at least half of it filled. Change the head if necessary or try dry burning.

    Oh, I personally like the iclear 16's better than the ce5's. They are cheap too, and dual coil.

    Good luck!

    Have you turned on the NO2 (RMS) option yet?

    The V3, V4, and V5 use the V3's internals and it is RMS only

    She don't have a vamo just yet. It's "on the way".

    Set the RMS on the V2, set watts for 6-7 watts...and have at it! (I misread the OP's post)

    Not sure about the Johnson Creek flavors...but there are TONS of vendors that have really good tobacco flavor stuff...I hear the RY4 is usually really good

    I will say when I started the Totally Wicked "America Red Tobacco" in Red Label...and it was the best of many tobacco flavors I tried till I moved on to the sweeter fruity flavors. There are better flavors (and cheaper) out there

    Roar Vapor "Strapple" is "slap yo mamma" good!

    Make sure you have good IMR batteries and a good charger and you will be very pleased with the Vamo over the other smaller rigs!

    Tanks...I run top coil right now, CE6 "serviceable" and vivi nova mini (clones from ft) and they perform well..many have told me they don't compare to kanger bottom coil rigs though (even though I have some regular every day BCC mini tanks)
