Unravelling the Mystery: Why Does Your Vape Taste Burnt?

Embarking on your vaping journey sparks a voyage of flavour and many health benefits for the body, setting it apart from traditional smoking. But the unwelcome intrusion of a burnt taste when vaping can disrupt your experience. Fear not, for this blog post is your guide to resolving the phenomenon of burnt vaping. We'll navigate through the complexities, unveiling the culprits behind this issue and presenting solutions to have a smooth vaping experience every time.

Cracking the Code Behind Burnt Vape Taste

At the core of vaping lies flavour, triumphing over the mundane smoking routine. But what if your vape delivers a burnt taste? Understanding the root cause is key to restoring your vaping nirvana. Should the burnt taste linger, it's crucial to differentiate between overheating and the buildup of E-Liquid residue.

Unveiling the Overheated Wick Enigma

A burnt taste often emerges from an overheated or dry coil, unleashing a harsh flavour due to the singed wicks. Alternatively, E-Liquid residues can accumulate on the coil's surface, resulting in combustion during usage. This translates into a "caramelised" or "burnt sugar" note that overshadows the original E-Liquid flavour.

Decoding the Cause, Crafting Solutions

Distinguishing between the two can take some getting used to, but as you become educated on your smoking cessation journey this will come with ease. Burnt cotton yields a pungent taste, while burnt sugar hints at residue accumulation. For devices with replaceable coils, assessing the coil's appearance is advised. A black, gunky presence denotes residue, while a white, lustrous surface signals a burnt wick.

Exiling Burnt Taste: Conquering Coil Gunk

Coil gunk, a byproduct of sucralose-laden E-Liquids, often triggers burnt taste. The antidote lies in embracing unsweetened vape juices. Alternatively, opting for a compact device, like a pod system such as our Nevoks APX device, which curbs E-Liquid consumption, effectively deterring residue buildup. 

Preventing Burnt Taste from Burnt Wick Woes

A desiccated wick culminates in overheating and a burnt taste. Prevention involves priming a new coil and soaking the cotton with E-Liquid before vaping. Allowing a brief pause after tank filling to ensure that the wick is properly saturated. Vaping at moderate wattage and pacing your puffs can also help reduce wick dryness.

Mastering Burnt Taste Challenges with Fresh Coils

Even a new coil can yield a burnt taste due to inadequate priming, hasty vaping after installation, or incorrect wattage settings. Ensuring thorough priming, allowing wick saturation, and adhering to recommended wattage levels can help avoid this.

Deciphering Burnt Taste in Disposable Vapes

Disposable vapes are an alternative to coil replacements, however they also might harbour burnt taste issues. Having a high nicotine strength could be the trigger; contemplate a reduction. Additionally, maintaining intervals between puffs prevents wick dryness, guaranteeing a smoother vape.
