Vapor tastes burnt
I have been having a problem with my vapor tasting burnt. So, today I emptied out my clearomizer tank, cleaned it, and put new e-liquid in it. Then I put in a new atomizer. After doing this, the vapor tasted good at first but after about 30 puffs it doesn't taste very good and has a slight bitter, burnt taste again. I don't know why it keeps doing this. I shined a flash light through the center hole in the atomizer and the wick doesn't look burnt.

RE: Vapor tastes burnt
Your volts or watts are too high for the coil and/or wicking you're using. Lower the volts or watts and try again.

What hardware specifically are you using ?

RE: Vapor tastes burnt
Im using a Vaporzone Pro battery with a Pro Platinum tank. My battery isn't variable voltage. But Vaporzone does sell atomizers with 3 different resistances. Right now Im using the medium resistance (2.2 ohms). Wouldn't it fix it if I went up to a higher resistance coil?

RE: Vapor tastes burnt
It might well help. 

Are you using a very thick juice? That might explain the wicking problem that leads to the burnt taste. You could try a juice higher in propylene glycol - they tend to wick better. Maybe try adding a drop or two of (preferably distilled, you are inhaling it after all) water to the tank. This can lead to a very strong throat hit so don't add too much.

That's a Kanger Protank style tank. You need to remove the top wick.

Check this video out below and scroll to 8mins 40 seconds to find out how

RE: Vapor tastes burnt
Well I removed one of the top wicks and the only thing it did was caused my tank to leak and flood the atomizer. And it still tasted bad. I guess I will have to order some higher resistance atomizers and that hopefully will fix the problem.
