Burnt Flavors
I see people talking about vaping at what I consider high watt settings. Whenever I try vaping at anything over around 12 watts, it pretty much tastes like I'm eating burnt charcoal. It's horrendous. I've tried my sub tank with all three different coils, and tried my Nuatilus', but about 12 watts or higher, I get a putrid taste. I'm running my own mixed juice at 50/50. At 11-11.6, the flavor is great.

Anyone got any info on what's happening?

RE: Burnt Flavors
The wicks aren't keeping up. You could try more PG to thin the juice or a small amount of distilled water in the juice.

RE: Burnt Flavors
I'll try that with a small batch. My 50/50 seems pretty thin, viscosity wise to storebought juices. Doesn't seem much thicker than water.

RE: Burnt Flavors
Very interesting, Kramer. I run 80/20 VG/PG in my Atlantis at 24w for optimal flavor and clouds. I don't have a "subtank" but I would think that it should do as well as the Atlantis coils. Very odd. As for your Nautilus, I was never able to use more than 8w with a regular BCC clearo like that.

Let us know how you make out with the subtank and thinning your juice.

RE: Burnt Flavors
I've been using my Subtank Nano with a 1.2 ohm coil the past few days, with 70 VG/30 PG juice or 40 VG/60 PG juice at 20W and it's working great, not a single dry hit even when I'm chain vaping. Like Johnny said, the Nautilus won't be able to run at higher wattages like the Subtank, I've found that mine works well at about 10W with 50/50 juice. What flavor are you using? Perhaps it's just a flavor that doesn't work well at higher wattages.

RE: Burnt Flavors
The Nautilus is only rated up to 11.5 watts.  The Atlantis is rated up to 30 watts.  Are you priming your Atlantis coils when you install them?  I run 90VG/10PG juice in mine with absolutely no issues.

RE: Burnt Flavors
You can also turn the bottom of the Alantis either way a little bit to get the wicking holes in the cutouts of the chimmeny

RE: Burnt Flavors
No way you should be running into that problem with a SubTank.  50/50 is already way thin and would work even with the tiny holes on teh RBA.  If you're using the OCC's that Kanger makes, you should barely even be getting decent hits at 12 watts, much less burning anything.

Assuming you're using factory KangerTech coils and that the unit is assembled correctly, either something is wrong with your juice, or with your mod.

What mod are you running?  What nicotine level in your juice?  Also what kind of VG, PG, other ingredients are you using?  

Let's narrow this down.  It isn't the tank or the coils.

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.
