Exclamation Bad Coils Or Juice Ratio?
Alright, I get my juice at a local B&M shop in the area I work at and I always buy one bottle of "Sweet Nuts" and a bottle of another flavor. The shop recently started making their juices at 70/20 instead of the old 50/50. Since buying the Sweet Nuts in the new ratio, it seems like I can't get it to wick correctly, which in turn around 3 seconds into my vape hit it starts tasting like burned cotton and practically makes me want to vomit. I have the same problem with the other flavor I buy too. Now, I tried changing the coil back and forth, and it seems to have the same effect no matter which coil I use. I keep my vape in my pocket to stay warm because I know that if the juice gets cold it turns thicker and makes it harder to wick. I'm using my V.V. battery at the same voltage I always have it at which is between 4.3v - 4.4v and I have a 2.2 ohm Genuine Kanger coil. Setup is a Dovpo FireFog2 Stainless Steel/Pyrex tank, with a SmokTech 900mAh Variable Volt battery.

What gives??

Hmm... It sounds like the VG ratio is too high, but 70/30 usually isn't a problem. I suppose it could just be too much VG, so you might want to try using 50/50 juice again. Or you might just want to turn the power down. 4.4V is a bit much for a 2.2 ohm coil, I'd keep it around 3.5V or so.

Well, he was used to 50/50, then 70/30 should not be a problem. I'd try tearing it all down, cleaning it good, and make sure all orings are where they are supposed to be and not damaged.

Your juice is too thick for your coils.  High resistance modular coils are notorious when it comes to higher VG ratios.  The weep holes are too small for thicker juices to wick properly.  I'd suggest trying a 60/40 ratio.
