Muted flavor on all my clearomizers

    I can only taste either a dry burnt or plasticy flavor on all my clearos especially kanger EVOD and MT3. No burnt taste on my mini vivi nova or CE5 style stardusts, but no taste either. So much so, that i cannot even distinguish between opposing flavors. It is really frustrating because when i got my first clearos (mini vivi and stardust), i was getting superior taste to my original ego-c attie/tank setup. The only setup now that is giving me flavor is the ego-c atties/tanks. Have my taste buds developed a "resistance" to the flavors that are outputted from my clearos? (ive maintained, cleaned, changed heads etc., tried various different PG/VG ratios, but still no flavor)

    Could be Vapers tongue?

    Also u might want to give your devices a real good cleaning.

    Make sure your drinking lots of water.

    If it was vapors tongue, i don't think i would be able to taste on the ego-c atties either. I have been cleaning everything thoroughly.

    Sorry if you meant this by cleaning, but have you opened up any of the heads and looked at your flavor wicks/coils to see how funky they are?

    Yeah missed that in the OP, tough one, if it wasnt for the fact you could still taste things on the ego-c, your story literally mirrors this current thread:

    The really odd thing about what i am experiencing is that i can taste things on the ego-c tank system and even more so when i am dripping. Getting a more flavorful hit from dripping is understandable, but also being able to taste the flavor on the tank system from which i never got flavor that surpassed clearos in the past, is really strange.

    How long has it been since you quit smoking? Maybe your tastes are still re-adjusting? FWIW, I think CE4 gives more flavor than an evod or carto. My Nano has the most muted flavor - good for strong juices.

    About 4-5 months since i quit smoking. Haven't touched a cig since. My dual coil CE5 style is giving me the only hint of flavor among clearos, but the throat hit is too harsh. I really do not want to go back to the old school style attie tank setup.

    I have this same problem with clearos, and I don't think it's my tongue or dehydration or other factors, except for the fact that clearos DO mute flavors. Practically with every clearo I've tried, which is why I still drip when I'm at home and only use clearos for when I'm on the go. The Kanger T3's gave "okay" flavor before they started leaking and messing up, and so far the iClear 16's are the only ones I really use for the time being. Still searching for something better.

    UPDATE: I got the flavor back (while getting rid of the horrible metallic/plastic machine old taste) by removing the top wick (flavor wick) on my EVOD. So far very happy but i am not holding my breath because this workaround is known to cause leaks.
