New MVP4 bottom of coil and cotton turning brown
 Hello everyone I'm new to vaping so I apologize in advanced for any noob questions or comments. I've run into a problem as the title says and have done a lot of searching but the answers I've found vary way to much. I've picked up a Mvp4 with the scion tank and have been enjoying it awhole lot.

 I picked up my unit about two weeks ago and have only run Cuttwood's Unicorn Milk and Ruthlesses Easy on the Ice. Both are great flavors by the way. I think Cuttwood is a cut above the rest lol. Other then those guys I put two tanks of a Liquid I got from a local shop but threw it away due to chest itching occurring. Ive read that bad juice can clogg a coiland ive and read how to clean them.  But would it cause my coil to turn brown. The bottom of the coil has started turning a golden brown. It worries me a little bit.

Any help would be awesome thanks

I don't know about that tank and the coils it uses but two weeks is a good life span for a coil. It could just be ready for a new one. I am sure someone with more experience with that tank will be along.

Thick liquids (high in VG) can do this. If it doesn't affect the taste then don't worry about it. If I remember rightly, Unicorn Milk can be a coil eater.

Just keep using it till it tastes bad, then replace it.

Hey there Soda. Darkening of the cotton and even the juice is not uncommon. As long as it tastes good still there should be no worries. Aside from normal oxidation, it could be a sign of the power being up a bit high for the build.

The 'bad juice' you mention is typically juice made with sweeteners like Sucralose; it tends to cause excessive buildup on the coil which kills it prematurely.

And there are no 'noob' questions; please don't apologize.

Hi Soda - its all been said - 2 weeks is a fair period for a coil and only change it when it tastes bad - and it has also been said there are no noob questions so don't hesitate to ask - we were all new at one time[Image: smile.gif]. Keep enjoying your vaping.

Guys thank you very much, I was a little worried and now I'm not. I truly look forward to much more vaping experiences. I can't waite to try cuttwoods whole line. Ive heard black note is really nice on tobacco flavors.

Dons absolutely right, cutwood is quite hard on coils. Quite partial to boss and sugar bear myself, though I've not used them in a long while.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: New MVP4 bottom of coil and cotton turning brown
Hey Soda, not sure if you or anyone else is still running that Scion tank. It's actually what I'm using right now and actually like it quite a bit. The only other tank I have to compare against that I've used in my short vaping career is the Cleito and I prefer the Scion. The coils are a little higher wattage, I prefer the 70-110 one that is like a triple coil. My 2nd one I primed and soaked quite a while and it's holding up good with some outstanding flavor. Also with mine came a globe glass so I put that on for higher capacity and I think it looks cool. Also, I really dig the drip tip mouth piece. 

Hope that may help anyone considering that tank, or if anyone with more experience has used it could maybe help me.,
