    I have found the 1.8 ohm heads do give burnt taste unless vaped at around 3.3 volts. I prefer the 2.5 ohm heads and can vape them at 3.7-4.0 volts without getting burnt taste.

    I'm extremely happy with the T2. I haven't washed it yet, but it's the best vape for eGo batts, and I've tried EVERYTHING!!! Vivis, Stardust, carto tanks... I don't mind refilling during the day, carrying a small bottle of juice with me is no big deal. My beloved CE3 have taken second place to this! I want two more soon!!!

    I've vaped the 1.8 ohm head at 3.7 with no problems. Check your juice!!!

    I started using the T2 CC (short wicks) only two days ago after hearing so many good things about it. I liked it much better than the Stardust (better taste, easy filling and bigger tank), but only after one day, the taste became burnt, I was getting dry hits and the vape and mouthpiece became very hot. I've tried dry burning it, cleaning it and then I noticed that the rubber cap on the coil was coming off and was really sweaty on the inside. I've just removed the cap and now after a few dry hits, the burnt taste is much less, but it's no where near what it should be for a new clearomizer. Seems that from reading the reviews here that this a common problem. A shame, because I was really happy with it, but now I'm not sure if this is the one for me.......

    Does it have the cup? or just the long(er) wicks? When refilling, pull the silicone sleeve up a little, and as you screw the cap on it sits more naturally. The dry hits will reduce. Also, are you tipping it enough? And how much VG is in your juice?

    Thank you for your reply!

    Sorry I don't know what the cup is, I have only removed the silicone sleeve on top. I vape DK tab which is 100 % PG. What do you mean by tipping? I roll it around now and then so the wicks remain moist.
    The taste remains terrible and burnt, I've put it away.
    I don't know what happened, it was 2 days fine and then the juice started to change color and tasted really bad, I felt sick from it.
    I will go back to using the Stardust, too bad cause I had high hopes, but it turns out just a waste of money......

    The short wick heads have a silicon cup under the wicks plus the sleeve at the top. Adjusting the bottom cup slightly away from the wicks will allow more juice to get to the wicks if you are getting dry or burned hits.

    I'm satisfied user of T2 since the first day it appeared on HG, so I/m using it for 4 months now (if I didn't count something wrong). It is absolutely my no.1 vaping choice in the cheap/industry made ato/clearo/cartomiser.

    It had it's flaws in the begining, now they fixed everything. Only thing I don't like is going to long wick coils, without leaving short ones as choice.

    About problem with burnt tast - it is common for the 1.8 omh coils. The specs say "+-0.2omh", so it can easily happen that you end up with 1.6 coil (maybe even lower). So my cup of tea are 2.2 coils and I don't have any problems.

    Also, one of the problems is that a wast number of vapers don't know relation between omh and voltage they use. You can not go 3.8-4 volts with 1.8 clearomiser, even if it is accurate.

    kanger T2, is a great carto,if you use common ohms law, i have found, useing 2.4 ohm best vape under 3.7 vlots even 3.3 on spinner mod,these are the only carto that I have found to work well with out using a vv mod. have gotten burnt taste even at 3.3 vlots , must keep wicks wet, keep tipping upside down will stop most burnt taste, IMO these work as well as the vivi nova at lower voltages

    The T2 is the first and so far the only clearomizer I have used so far, so I can't make any comparisons to others. All I can say for sure, is my personal experience with my current setup. It beats my cartomizers and carto w/driptip by far. I am using a classic Ego 1000mah battery with 510 to Ego adapter to get this T2 to work, which it does. I haven't checked my batteries with a multimeter, I assume they are putting out something a bit under 4 volts (3.7ish?). The manual with these batteries says it makes 4.2 volts, but I doubt that. I am using replacement 2.5ohm coils on the T2 with short wicks. I don't see any "cup" inside, so I probably have the one of the later revisions, or most likely a knockoff. I always kept the wicks wet by tipping it every couple of drags. It worked very well for a week of solid use without cleaning, but after 2 more days of using a VERY dark chocolaty 60/40 PG/VG mix, I clogged and/or burnt the wick. I removed the coil unit, rinsed the tank and mouthpiece in very hot water a few times and let it dry for a few hours near a fan. The coil looked fine but the wicks were burnt in the center.
    I decided to go for broke, put a new coil unit on once the tank looked totally dry, filled the tank and waited a few minutes. I screwed it back on the battery with adapter, and it's like new. "Like new" to me means that I get more vapor than I know what to do with and no burnt taste. No sign of leakage out of either end so far, leaving it in any position. I should also mention that I don't chainvape more than 4 or 5 pulls, and my drags are about 4 seconds.

    I have been using the T-2 for about a month. Much better (for me) than the Vivi Nova, or CE4 type clearos. I really like the top coil vape for the warmth. These are easy to clean and the heads last a long time.
