    Im new to vaping, I started about 3 months ago. I have a drag mini and i have a problem where ive wasted so many replacement coils because they keep tasting wrong. And im doing everything that everyone says is the right way to change out a coil. I even had someone thats been vaping for a while change it out and still tastes wrong. I even bought a new tank (mesh pro) and it tasted good one time then went back to tasting weird like burnt. I dont know what is happening and ive wasted so much money on coils. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

    after replacing the coil and filling the tank are you letting the coil sit for 5 - 10 minutes before vaping on it? The coil needs time to get fully saturated before vaping

    also what ohm is the coil and what watts are you using?

    Yes ive tried many of the right ways to replace the coils. Ive replaced it and put ejuice on the cotton and waited 30 min and even an hour. And ive also done the method where you suck while the air vent is closed to make the cotton soak up the juice. And ive started at lower watts and went up.
    Ive tried many coils the one im using right now is a free max kanthal double mesh 0.2ohm coil. And i use it with the watts that are recommended.

    eh recommended doesn't alway mean it's right ;) it's more of a suggestion...
    other than that all I can think is the juice may be too thick or too thin to wick correctly....what's the pg/vg ratio of your juice?

    What are you using? A mech or a reg? What are the recommended watts for that coil?

    Oh, Welcome to ECF, ztockfairlady.

    It's most probably a regulated mod you're using. What watts do you have it set at?

    are you using the temp control on the mod? or just normal power/watt mod?

    Try taking a needle or something and poke a few holes in the cotton of your coil to allow a bit more juice in.

    Sorry. I was too vague in my question. @Shadav had a better phrased query.
