    Default Confused several of my fav flavors now tasts like ick!

    I bought two evod tanks and a pack of replacement atomisors a few days ago. I have two vision spinners 400mah and an ego non variable voltage middle sized one (not sure mah). One of my favorites is the cinna stix from potent smokables 18mg nic. in the vision ego clearamizer it tastes great. I've tried it and other juices In my evods and it has a chemical taste. At first I thought maybe I didn't clean out the tanks well so I emptied and cleaned and anything I put into the tanks seem to be off. I've even replaced the atomizer that came with one of the tanks with a new one. that helped but everything seems off. like a chemical kinda burnt maybe perfumy after taste. I let it soak for a while after filling tank thinking the wick needed to absorb the juice. Help I'm new and frustrated. I bought the evod tanks because the others I had were disposable. Ive tried them with sweet tartz, ry4, cinna stix, banana nut bread. Suggestions? Tips? Hints? Can you tell i'm very new. BTW as a side note I don't have alcohol products in the house so rinsing tank with everclear or vodka is a no go for me. Thanks

    Search about steeping the juice. It may just need some time.
    Good luck, and welcome to the forum!

    I agree..... Some juices just need to age a little for their true flavor to come out. Maybe set them aside.... Give them a good few shakes every day and try them again in a week or two.

    Your taste buds are change. I have a LOT of juice I can't vape that tastes like perfume. Some when I first started back tasted ok, now I can't stand the taste. I only have a couple I DIY that get me by, the others have been sitting for weeks, try a couple every weekend, still no joy. I have 200+ ml just sitting in the back room with the tops off hoping they get better. I figure by the end of the year if I can't vape them I will PIF to someone who has no taste buds. Seems the only thing I can use at the moment is TFA coffee (dark) and myvapejuice natural extract tobacco (savage & wicked wench original), but I am fine with that, keeps me off the stinkies.

    Vape On

    New gear has to be thoroughly cleaned before use. Residues, etc. from the manufacturing process often remain in the new devices. Knockoff devices are worse, and sometimes the heads are just not well made, though a thorough cleaning and replacement heads often solve the problem. Could be steeping as suggested, but sounds like the juice was fine in one device and then not fine in another. Could be coil resistance changed without a change in heat/voltage, this will always change the vape. Likely one of those things. It's always a process of elimination to determine the problem. Eliminate the variables one by one until you find the cause. Backup devices, replacement heads, etc. all help you to do this. Best of luck to you!

    Dont smoke anything before vaping,
    Also certain fooda and becerages will affect taste. For me when i drink coffee certain juices tasfe great that i normally cant vape and some favorites taste like burnt plastic.

    If i smoke anything before i vape it makes my juice taste horrid.

    if all the advise ahead of me doesn't work out, try different tanks, I seem to get the best taste out of glass/metal tanks (personally I only have 1 plastic tank which I don't use much) also I prefer Kanger coils, they seem to last longest

    Keep up the good vape!

    Try using one of the variable voltage batteries like Ego C twist or the one i have transitioned to, vamo v3. I have noticed that some flavors taste better at higher or lower voltage setting.

    This ^

    I have had this problem with Kanger T3S's.. juice that I love tastes like caca at first. Metallic, funky, bleech! Even after a good cleaning. But after a partial tank, things seem to smooth out and then begin tasting "right" as in back to yummy again. Bill's advice is dead on IMO.
