    Can anyone help? All I am getting when I vape is the strong nicotine flavor in my throat. Not the flavor of the juice-using 6mg. Should I change the voltage? it goes from 3.2 to 4.8V.

    What voltage do you have it set at? If you set it too high, you might be getting a burnt taste, might that be what you're describing?

    the Ego C twist is the battery that supplies the power to your delivery device.

    What delivery device do you have your juice in, and what is the ohms of it (1.8, 2.2, 2.5 etc.|?)

    Then you would need atleast 4v and up to get some taste, but it also depends on what topper you're using.

    I just got a Kanger aero tank and have it on a eVOD VV, right now I have the air open by about 1/3rd open, the voltage a 4.2, with a 2 ohm dual coil, nic is about 18%, seems to be working really well, no burnt taste or throat issues. I am not sure how the Kanger's might or might not be similar to one another, but I am getting a smooth full flavor without anything that makes me uncomfortable.

    I think you have to adjust your rig to suit how you like it, very minute movement of the voltage is your only way to get it right to suit you. I started at the level my ego manual was at, and cranked it up from there.

    Several possibilities. Are you a new vaper? Many of us tend to hit it like a cig which is wrong for many reasons. Slow steady hits a the way to go. Fast and hard will suck the juice out of the wicks giving you that harsh throat hit and taste which is due to the silica that the wicks are made out of. Conversely, not hitting hard enough will cause there to be a lack of airflow over the glowing hot coil while the button is pressed and cause the small amount of juice inside the wick (which the coil is wrapped around) to burn and also taste horrible and hit your throat like a harsh wrecking-ball. IF you've burned a coil or wick, sometimes that taste/harshness won't go away in that particular tank until you change the coil. I did that when I first started because I filled a tank and immediately hit it without waiting a few minutes for the wicks to soak up the juice. You're resistance and voltage setting are well within the range that you shouldn't be having these problems. Maybe try another tank and follow those tips and see. Also, juices that are high in PG tend to have more throat hit than those that are more VG and that could be causing your problem. Are you hitting in into your mouth and then inhaling into your lungs (like most do with a cig?)...that'll give the vapor a chance to cool a bit and be easier on the throat as well. Lastly, if you're new to vaping, it can take a little while for your throat to adjust to vapor after having smoked cigs. Lots of water are going to be critical for this acclimation period (and actually from now on while vaping). Vaping dries your mouth and throat out very quickly and can lead to irritation of the throat and/or tongue.
    Some great tips here as well:

    Good suggestions on the thread.

    But no one questioned the juice. What juice are you using? I only vape quality American made liquids. By far, the worst juices I've tried were from tobacco shops that decided to also carry some ecig stuff. There are 4 or 5 in my area, and all carry imported no-name crap. OK, 2 of them do have a little USA juice, overpriced. But the imported Chinese juices were truly garbage.

    Do yourself the biggest favor since deciding to vape. Get some sample packs from Quality Juice Vendors.
    Halo eliquids are superb. 10% discount on juices code is ECFTEN2014
    Vermillion River has absolutely delicious juices. 10% code is ECF

    Other great juices are Heather's Heavenly Vapes, and Alice in Vapeland.

    Now that you have your 10 posts, search in this forum for other great vendors.

    Bottom line is this. No one will recommend sub-par equipment or juice. Inexpensive, yes, but it has to work.

    Life is too short to vape crap.

    Best of luck to you.

    Nobody questioned that it is possible she got a "lot" of bad coils. It happens, not a lot, but it does, then you think you're doing something wrong.

    adriane7, at 2.2ohms turning battery voltage to 4.0, you're vaping at about 7 watts.
    For me, that is high, hot. I like 6 watts myself

    That will be different for everybody though. :)

    Once you toast/burn those coils, they will never taste right again, so you need to start over. Fresh coils, and then let the juice sit in the clearo for a while.

    Are you using the SAME clearo each time, with different coils? There could be a defect in the bottom part of that clearomizer, the base where you screw those coils in. Try to eliminate as many problems as possible. Start with new coils and different juice. :)

    But I think you just need to let the juice sit in there until it reaches/primes the coils and wick, before you take a vape.

    And as DaveOno said, it could just be your juice that is too harsh for you.
