    well sorry...I don't really have any other suggestions....
    I'm back to thinking the watts are too high
    or you are chain vaping too much for the juice to keep up....
    best of luck, hopefully you get it figured out

    I think I won't be able to offer an wattage/power type suggestions as I use a coil in the 1.5 ohm range and power in the 8 - 10 watt range.. but what Shadav said, good luck with this issue. I'm sure you'll soon have replies that number in the dozens which you'll find helpful.

    Heh. I totally feel you there. If you run into a post from me that reads “deleted due to reading comprehension error” you know what happened. There are quite a few around on the forum.

    Power recommendations are often exaggerated. I'd suggest starting at no more than 30 - 40 watts with that coil. Work your way up to where it's OK and don't go any higher. 90 watts might be enough to burn the wick, in which case it would keep tasting burnt after that.

    When you say it tastes OK the first time but not after that, how long are you waiting between vapes? If you're chain vaping (as I often do) with only a few seconds between vapes there may not be enough time for the wick to get saturated again. If that's not it, we're back to looking at the power setting.

    i meant it tasted OK with one coil for the entirety of its lifetime, the the next coil didnt and the ones after that. I start atr lower watts and still tastes weird at those wattages. And i let atleast 3 minutes before taking another hit

    Definitely not chain vaping, then. Did the first coil come from the same box as the others? How many coils have you tried and had problems with? Sometimes a coil (or even a box of coils) is a dud. Another thought - have you double-checked the markings on the coil itself to make sure they're the same? If you've somehow ended up with the single coil that's also made for that system, it would have lower recommended settings.

    ive tried like three boxes of coils, ive even used the three mesh ones and that was the one that had one coil that actually tasted ok. and yes ive checked the markings.

    It's a mod and a sub ohm tank I was referring to the tank uwell tanks are really good imo been using a crown3 for a long time it's leaked twice once from an extremely old coil(2months) and the other time it leaked was because I broke the glass

    After a burnt hit or notice taste-flavor is not good,before you change with new coil wash your tank-toss juice because holds bad flavor.

    @greek mule, thats the best advice yet. Take everything apart and clean it really good in very hot water. If you leave any burnt juice at all in the tank, even a residue, it will affect the taste of a new coil. Every time

    Did I misunderstand, or did you say you’re at 90w? Washing the tank well first is important. But also, start breaking it in as low as it will fire. Somewhere around 25w. I don’t know of any drop in that will tolerate 90w, so increase slowly.

    I agree too that the recommendations on the coils are too high. I don’t think I’ve ever gone as high as the lower number, but you may be able to go 40-50w.

    One other thing, is the mod reading the ohms correctly?

    Yes the advice here is spot on...wash the tank inside and out thoroughly with really hot water. Sometimes the chimney will get coated in a nasty residue from drawing up burnt liquid/cotton.

    Then when you've done that and dried it out start again with a new coil and start low and increase but don't go over 40/45 watts :)

    Occasionally, a box of coils will just be a bad batch and you'll get what you've been describing but I don't think it's that as you seem to have gone through a lot of coils so far...good luck :)

    When i used the tfv12, coils were rated high for that one, and i would vape at 130w with no issues at all. But those were actually made to do that. Ive since retired that tank and use a falcon mesh tank at 65w. Batteries last longer that way, lol. But i think if the OP took everything apart and cleaned it really well between every coil change, it would solve the issue

    Hi and welcome,
    How long is your average inhale (in seconds) at 90 watts?
    Is your inhale strong, deep and rapid or slow and steady?
    Have you watched others (Utube) use the device you have?
    Do your inhales match/mimic the inhales of the reviewer(s) in strength and duration?

    I get the vibe that you are trying to use a DTL (big air) device, as a MTL (restricted draw and slow steady inhale) device.
    With insufficient air flow, your coils will overheat and cook your juice.
    Does the juice in the tank take on a darker color as the tank empties?

    Cheers
    I
