    I have a Aspire BDC tank and keep getting a burnt taste. I have tried swapping out the coils numerous times thinking i may have gotten a new batch but it still tastes burnt. I tried swtiching mods as well and that doesnt fix it neither. Does anyone have any suggestions? I cant seem to figure it out.

    Thanks,

    If you are using a high VG juice that is very thick this could cause a wicking problem thus burnt taste. Maybe your voltage is too high for the resistance. Other than that you may have gotten some bad coil heads. I would try a high PG juice if you haven't already or dilute your VG juice with PG or distilled water.

    ,Bofa, i have used the bdc heads since they where introduced. As of the last month or so I have had more bad heads within that time than all through the entire previous months added together . I think volume of sales has caused them to overlook things that maybe wouldn't make it through Quality Control....

    To hedge your bet with the heads you have left I would suggest you thin your liquid by as much as 25% if its a thicker liquid..... if its not a thicker liquid you could back down on your voltage. I was using the 2ohm heads right at 4.5v and that was about as hard as I could run them without having them get funky burnt flavor.

    Yup, what they said^. Whenever you get a burnt taste, your coil is not getting enough eliquid--either because your juice is too thick or your wattage is too high--or both. Make sure your juice is not too thick, too sweet and your voltage/wattage is just right.

    That said, I've noticed that priming your atomizer head by direct dripping onto the coil before filling the tank and then letting the device sit for a few minutes helps. The Aspire coils are buried in a carto-like filler and that filler needs to be fully saturated to wick properly--just like a cartomizer.
