Unveiling the Mystery of the Burnt Vape Taste
Identifying the Problem with Your Disposable Vape
Before we delve into potential solutions, it's crucial to first understand the root of the problem. Essentially, a burnt hit is indicative of a malfunction. Disposable vapes, such as the EB DESIGN (formerlt Elf Bar), comprise three primary components: a battery, a heating coil, and a material saturated in vape juice. Assuming your vape isn't defective or empty, a burnt taste suggests that something is awry.
Why Does Your Disposable Vape Taste Burnt?
There are three common reasons behind this distasteful experience:
- Insufficient liquid is reaching the heating coil quickly enough. This can occur even if the liquid level isn't completely depleted.
- The coil becomes overheated. This can happen if you have just unplugged the device from the charger, resulting in the battery voltage peaking temporarily. It could also be due to rapid consecutive puffs.
The Role of Chain Vaping in Causing Burnt Taste
Every time you vape, the coil's heat converts the e-liquid absorbed by the wick into vapor. The more you chain vape, the less time the e-liquid has to resoak into the wick. Over time, your wick could become dry, leading to a dry hit and the inevitable need to replace the coil. Before reaching this point, you may notice a deterioration in the quality of vapor production.
Subtitle: Strategies to Avoid the Dreaded Burnt Vape Taste
Just as in healthcare, prevention is far more straightforward than treatment. Here are some preventive measures you can implement to avert a dry or burnt hit.
Pace Your Vaping
As we've discussed, chain vaping often leads to burnt coils and an unpleasant taste. Therefore, taking a brief 15-20 second pause between puffs can provide the cotton around the coil enough time to resaturate and enhance the overall performance of your vape device.
Slow Down and Shorten Puffs
It's easy to unconsciously vape more and faster than you intend. Try to take shorter puffs and extend the time between them to avoid overheating.
Be Mindful of Puff Counts
Puff counts are typically based on very short puffs. If you're someone who takes long drags, you're likely using more liquid than you realize. To get more puffs, try taking shorter ones.
Sometimes, a burnt vape taste can be attributed to the battery emitting too much voltage for the coil. If you experience a burnt taste post-charge, take light, non-inhaled puffs for a while. This should help reduce the battery's power output. Try a full inhale once the taste feels right.
Utilize Primer Puffs
Primer puffs are light hits intended to initiate the flow. Avoid starting out with a significant hit. Instead, go slow, paying attention to the aroma and taste. If everything smells and tastes good, you can then start taking bigger hits.
By recognizing and troubleshooting the underlying issues, you can enhance your vaping experience and say goodbye to that unpleasant burnt taste.
Strategic Positioning of Your Vape Pod
Consider reorienting your vape pod by flipping it upside down. This position facilitates a thorough penetration of the e-liquid into the cotton. After allowing some time for this absorption process, you can test your device to check if the unpleasant burnt taste has been resolved.
Leaving Your Vape Uncovered: A Simple Solution for Persistent Burnt Taste
If you find that the burnt taste continues to linger, try a different approach. Unseal your vape and leave it open for a duration. This simple method allows the cotton within the wick system ample time to soak up more liquid, potentially resolving the issue of the burnt taste.
