    Default Popping sound from 510 atty?

    One of my atty's makes a popping sound from time to time. I blow all my atty's out at least once a day, usually more. They're only a few days old and otherwise perform well. Should I be concerned or is this just par for the course?
    Grain, which any fool can eat but for which the Lord intended a more divine means of consumption. let us give praise to our maker and glory to his bounty by learning about...BEER.

    They do make noise when re-wicking. It's like when you put water on something hot. The atty changes the juice to vapor then more juice migrates back into the hot atty.

    To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart.

    I'm only a few days into using my ecig, but I have noticed if it isn't making this noise sometimes, then vapor and throat hit is down. Whenever I don't here this noise anymore, I always check to make sure there is still juice in the cart, and also that my battery is nice and full. Once I add juice or change the battery, I hear this noise again and the ecig is back to vaping great.

    Agree with 5cardstud, that you will hear more like a "sizzle" when it is rewicking. I had one atty that was brand new and made a rather loud "pop" sound whenever I hit the manual button and would inhale. Even though it was new and I had blown out the primer, I did a vodka soak for 24 hours and let it dry for 24, it still made that loud pop so I tossed it as I just felt it was not safe to use.

    When they are brand new mine make a sound like pop rocks candy on your tongue. It doesn't affect performance, and I quite like it LOL

    Great analogy CaptJay. A new atty can sound like pop rocks candy.

    I like noisy atties! When I first started I was very conscious of every noise my e-cig made. I had a strange desire of it to be silent. Not so anymore! Now I like the noise... lets me know it is working. I don't know how loud the popping is but if it is working well I wouldn't stress over it too much.

    The newest batch of 510 atties I got have been "popping" and I don't like them at all. They don't work as well as all the previous ones I've used (which never made this kind of sound). It's not the usual snap, crackle, sizzle that attomizers make, it's a very hard *POP*.

    I did a quick recording in case anyone wants to compare their pop to mine. The first click is me hitting the button on the battery, then you'll hear the pop and some normal sizzle. After a pause, I do it again...

    ATTY POP

    Is that what everyone's atties normally sound like? Because this is the first time I've ever had ones that did that.

    I've been so frustrated with these atties that I'm on my third one in 3 days. Maybe the other two really were defective because this third one (which I've been using for about 30 minutes now) is much better despite the hard pop when it fires up. The other two seemed to be burning too hot, which made the vapor too warm. That ruined the flavor too — basically, a very unpleasant vape making me very unhappy for a couple days!
    Smoke-free since Oct '09 thanks to ecigs!
