    I've been vaping out of my new coil today and I noticed my coil is turning brown in 1 day! The flavor is tasting metallic and I make sure everything is full and don't chain vape is it possible to get a faulty coil? (pre-built coil) I also did prime it and even left it for 10 mins to fully soak.
    Any help much appreciated hope everyone has a good weekend :)

    The turning brown isn't that big of an issue. The cotton in the coils will discolor with use. Yes, you can occasionally get a dud coil. Try replacing it with a fresh coil.

    The posts above have nailed it. And yes even the best makers turn out the odd duff coil - I've just put a new Innokin Coil into my Zenith and its weak and wonky so they do slip through, even authentic ones.

    Some juices, especially dark ones, are prone to crusting up the coil. Sweet juices are generally coil killers due to the sugar (sucrose) ingredients. The clearer the better, in my opinion.

    I'd say and genuinely mean it kindly - don't overthink things, it really doesn't help, just take it easy and as it comes - maybe try turning up the power a bit for a few puffs then turn it back down and relax... things'll work out as they do! Again I'm not being sarcastic but maybe just maybe that ould metallic taste is just in your head.

    Been there, thunk all those thoughts, thought my vape might die etc etc etc...

    Metallic tastes are sometimes due to machine oil on the metal from the machining process. Kayfun atomizers are like that. I usually disassemble and drop new ones in hot water with a drop or two of dish soap and let them soak overnight. A good wash to get the soap out of the atty and it's clean and ready to vape.

    Your coils may have some residual machine oil on them. I haven't vaped drop in coils in many years and never had the oil taste. That's usually associated with rebuildable attys.

    @muza123, the liquid could contain Sucralose and that kills coils.

    That may be another option.

    As tried using it for DIY liquid and I didn't like it at all, coils black and gunked up within a day and that was at 1%!
