    Hey!

    So I just got my new Joye EGO 510, put everything together. Before I did anything, I made sure I blew out the atty of any primer juice. I then dripped 3 drops of 100% pg juice on the atty using a drip tip, took a puff and wth? The vapour is very warm and I get zero throat hit! I cant even taste the flavour, i just get this horrible warm taste at the back of my throat.

    Hard to be accurate here........
    Put another 2-3 drops in there and wait a bit. Usually what you describe is the feeling when it is time to DD again. For me at least

    EDIT: Also, put some more drops in. Puff but don't inhale a few times. Put another 2-3 drops and for lack of a better term, let the juice "settle" in the atty. If you blow this out from your nose you should also be able to discern the taste. This way you will have a better idea as to when taste is normal.

    If it persists.... try another atty???

    Whenever i blow out an atty I put atleast 5 drops to re prime it and let it sit a minute. Don use attys much though. The extra drops you put on should help

    Whenever I use a fresh or freshly cleaned atty I drip 6-10 drops of liquid in it and let it sit batt side down on a paper towel for 10 minutes. Then I blow through it real gentle just to get out the excess put it on my batt and vape away. Works pretty good for me.

    Keep using it and see if it breaks in. If not contact the vendor and see if they can replace it. Are both of your attys like that or just the one?
    Could also try cleaning it in some pga or vodka

    I only checked one so far. I dont really want to clean anything, as I think I ruined one of my old attys by cleaning it. Ill keep puffing on it to see it if breaks in.

    +1 to this... its either not broke in or its just plain bad if my suggestion didn't work on it.

    ETA: I tend to lean towards the latter because that usually works even on new attys maybe not to put them in top form but dcent at least. Still I would give it time just to be sure.

    Sucks to have a bad "new PV" experience... you want it to work so bad, it's new, you just spent money on it, just got it... and Grrr.

    What atty are you using (and the ohms)? Is it the one that came with the kit? (link?) What were you using before the eGo?

    Some vendors are shipping LR atties with the kits now.

    I know, I think I had the same thing with my first PV too. It took a day or two to break in and now its perfect. The PV I was using before and still have is a standard Joye 510. I bought Ego mainly for a better battery life. Im using the same attys that came in the box with the kit. But now im trying the new atty on my old PV and its a bit better but still not the way I want it to be. Could it be the powerful EGO battery making the vapour so hot and awful tasting?

    When I got my ego I just used the 510 attys I previously had. One thing I noticed right away was the cone greatly restricts the airflow and messes up the taste for me on my ego. For now just loosening the cone a couple turns works ok. I'd love to find a precision machinist who could sell me a couple cones with 4 holes perfectly drilled in it where they should be.

    What happens when you try the old 510 atty on your new ego without the cone? That would be the acid test.

    Yay! I think I fixed it? I put on a prefilled cartridge, had a few puffs, then put a drip tip back on and dropped a few drops of my favourite liquid and tada! It works! The flavours taste much better on ego too, awesome throat hit and loads of vapour! I love it!

    Hard to tell from a forum.. .but that's what I was wondering and why I asked. Could be. The eGo outputs a bit more amps so, with LR atties in particular, you will notice a difference. However, most people love LR atties on eGo units. Check for wicking issues, clean atty, try dripping temporarily while keeping the coil wet. The cone thing is a good point above too. If you have a multimeter, checking the atty ohms would give you some numbers to go on.

    Also, maybe you're a 2.0 or 2.5 or even 3.0 ohm person, and have a 1.5 ohm atty.

    Glad you got it to work. When I ordered my eGo, I also ordered a pack of the XL cartos because I am not a cart fan. Has worked like a champ for me since day one.

    I started this thread because I'm a newb! :D I'm finally getting the hang of direct dripping. I think what happened was, there was not enough juice in the atty, which caused the burnt taste. I never thought about it as I felt I drip quite often, but it turns out I'm not. Now everytime I get a burnt taste, I just add a few more drops and I'm ok for a while :)
