    Default Kangertech EVOD Problem

    I purchased a Kangertech EVOD last week and it was amazing. I loved the flavor it produced and the flavor. I bought a pack of wicks and used all of them and no problems. I bought a new pack of wicks today and it had a plastic taste. I also bought a new flavor, VaporBlunt Grape. It tasted horrible, like plastic, so I thought it was just a bad liquid. So I replaced the wick and put in my fail safe VaporBlunt Watermelon and it still tasted like plastic. I didnt have any issues with this tank until I got the wicks. My only guess is that it is a bad batch of wicks but I thought that there is another solution. I dont want to replace all my wicks in one night

    Welcome Chubbs...

    Are they genuine Kanger wicks... and are they the same resistance as the original ones?

    Welcome to ECF. Same thoughts, you could have been running stock 2.2 in evod and the new batch was 1.8 causing burnt taste at same voltage if your using 3.7 non adjustable ego battery. If a twist, did you turn down the voltage?

    Used all the "wicks" in one week?? Holy crap!! Do you mean coils? I've had my EVOD for six weeks and I'm only on my second coil and that's only because I wanted to try a 1.8ohm instead of the 2.5 that came with it. If you mean coils they should last for weeks and I switch juices all the time (first few vapes after a refill taste interesting but it turns to the new flavor very soon). I hope you're not replacing the coils with every refill! that sucks!

    .."a pack of wicks" in a week? You are talking about the 5 pack replacement coils for the Evod Bottom Coil Clearomizer, right? That would have been almost 1 a day, including the one it came installed with.
    Those "coils" should last you several days, at the least. A little cleaning, or even a simple dry burn and nothing else, can make them last a very good long while.
    Also, you don't mention the battery type you are using them on. As asked by State O' Flux, are they the same resistance as the 1st pack you got? Are you using a variable volt/wattage battery?

    Sorry I was in a rush to get to work when I posted. I am using a Smok 900mahz battery. Not sure of the wattage, but not variable. One coil lasted me a whole week and it was the standard 2.2 ohms. The pack that I bought is 1.8 ohms. I was planning on buying a variable wattage battery soon so if that's the problem that's good news. It doesn't taste burnt though it taste like plastic. I'm letting the new juice air out just in case that is the problem

    Sometimes new juices need to be steeped, and sometimes, if you are using a higher VG level in your juice, you will encounter wicking issues with the Kanger atomizers. Be sure that you are allowing enough time after changing heads to allow the heads to wick up the juice. A few unpowered primer puffs help and sometimes you need to remove one or both of the flavor wicks on the atomizer head. What is your PG/VG level?

    I actually removed one wick before I left for work. So I'm one step ahead lol. I use VaporBlunt liquid which I'm pretty sure is 70/30 PG/VG. The only thing that intreges me is that I was using the same brand liquid before this problem. Not sure what u mean by steeped

    The liquid is actually 70/30 VG/PG. I learned that too much PG gives me heartburn. Any tanks that u would recommend for 100% VG liquids?

    So I guess that it turns out its just the VaporBlunt Grape that was making the vape taste so terrible. There must have been some left over liquid in the tank when I filled it with watermelon juice. After about 15 vapes from it after I got home from work the disgusting flavor dissipated with each vape, vaped the remaining fluid, did a couple dry burns, refilled it VB Watermelon and it now tastes great! I don't how that taste could be called Grape or even be produced, but it tasted like the way liquid plastic would taste. Actually one of the most disgusting things I've ever tasted in my life
