    A dry hit is when you puff on a carto or atty that is dry (I.e. there's no juice to vape). You get a burnt taste. Very unpleasant.

    Keep your atty wet, and you will hopefully never have to suffer the taste oh-so-reminiscent of lighting the wrong end of an analog.

    However, when I first started vaping, I burned my first cartridge dry a couple of times, but due to the condition of my olfactory senses, I didn't notice the lingering burnt smell until I switched to a new one weeks later! When I tried to go back to the original, then I noticed the taste and the darkened color of the polyfill.

    Unless you have a clear tank system, this will be a "learn as you go" experience.

    Good luck and happy vaping!

    It's like licking a dirty ashtray... not that I've tried it before, but you'll end up making the same disgusted face! :(

    It's like when you puff on an analog's butt only to discover it's too late and there's no more "stuff" left; very unpleasant, indeed, as stated.

    Oh you'll get vape with most dry hits, because there's enough juice to cause a vape, but not enough juice to prevent burning. Very unpleasant, tastes bad, burns the throat. Keep your equipment good and wet ;)

    A dry hit will make your eyes water and cough. It tastes like burnt metal or in case of a carto, burnt filler material.

    But then again, every now and then a good-old dry hit may be a good thing, at least to remind us how great non dry hits are, haaa...

    Nooot, not really; just kidding!

    I am so worried about burning out attys. I have no idea what I'm doing, I'm just jumping in head first haha. But that's what this forum is for, I guess.

    It will happen sooner or later and when it does you WILL instantly know just what it is LOL and you will NEVER forget it. LOL It's so nasty. I got it once on my bottom feeder mod and after that I kept it flooded the next few days cause I was so afraid it would happen again. It kinda feels like this guy looks:shock:
