"Using the 1.4 ohm coil, just got it and after a day it's starting to taste burnt."

"I'm trying to quit smoking cigs so I bought a vape. I'm not sure if i'm doing something wrong though. I changed the coil on my vape about 2-3 days ago, filled it and let it sit for about 20 minutes. I fully charged my vape last night and the coil tastes burnt, not fully burnt that it hurts my throat, but there's definitely a burnt taste. "

Coils are no doubt wearable. And hence, at some point, they need a replacement once in a few weeks. No worries, you yourself will look out for the coil's replacement when you start getting a ‘burnt’ tasting. According to SMOK, the atomizers wire is anticipated to be utilized for about e-liquid of 50ml under normal conditions. Hence, in case you got a 5-ml tank, it will make about 10 refills. Infrequently, coils sometimes wear down quickly than expected; in such cases, the burnt taste is felt immediately. Below are the reasons listed for your SMOK Nord burnt taste issue.


Prime the coil properly—Just after countable hits, if you get a burnt taste from your vape, the reason might be that you must have not properly primed the coil. Essentially priming the coil means saturating your coil with e-liquid. You need prime the SMOK vape coils with the help of juice that you can apply to the side vents of the coil. Leave the coil in the tank for minimum 20 min to soak and take quite a few dry primer puffs prior to hitting the fire button.

The vape is hitting very frequently—Continuous vaping is one more big reason that is killing your coil. In case you are going for a big hit one after another, you will end up putting great stress on your coil. So ensure that you are taking short breaks between every hit.

If you tend to keep the vape in your bag or your pocket, simply the leakage can be reduced by merely closing the air holes when you do not use your vape.


Tighten o-rings and seals: Another reason that your vape can leak is due to the that are not tightened properly. You need to take care that all of the tank’s sections, including any o-rings and the glass piece, are tightly screwed on.


Try increasing the wattage: Sometimes very low wattage can also result in the juice consistently leaking out. Low wattage simply means all the vape's juice is not vaporized properly even before it can make it correctly to the upper chamber. And hence this result in leakage. You need to take care that you do not cross the recommended wattage limit that is given on your SMOK vape coil’s side.
