RE: e-juice quality ?
No just got distracted . to a certain degree yes , but the juice i was buying at the time was caca . My current juices for one don't come from the corner store , contain no alcohol and even the few i buy rather than make are far superior to those i bought in the begining .

Why be normal when wierd is so much fun.

RE: e-juice quality ?
It's completely normal for juice to darken. It is called oxidation folks. It is because nicotine and other flavorings are highly reactive substances and light, oxygen and heat will cause it them to react with each other ingredients in e-juice. Oxidation occurs even faster in a tank, where the nicotine is exposed to high levels of heat. The higher the nicotine content of your juice, the more visible the effects of oxidation. So Eddie's juice goes darker than TWs. Although the heat level is lower in Eddie's juice. Hmmm ... would need to calculate all variables. It's a job for Don, lol.

Now do not misunderstand. Nicotine is reactive but it is the sweeteners and artificial ingredients in the juice that really cause it to turn dark brown. This is caused by chemical reactions that cause some breakdown of constituents. Although nicotine e-liquid for DIY mixing does turn a light brown with age, a lot of color changes are caused by other ingredients, flavorings in particular. Some flavors react much stronger than others. I've also noticed thsat nic salts in a tank get quite dark in time.

Now does e-juice go bad if you leave it in a tank for a long period of time? Well, define bad. Ther nicotine level in a tank will reduce over time so you will not get the punch you got when you first put it in. It mis not really steeping when it is not sealed. Also if you use juice that cracks tanks ... look out. Also the flavor of your e-juice will change if left in as tank to long (why we clean tanks and change coils).

Having said all this I'm notorious for leaving juice in tanks too long and not cleaning my tanks for months on end. I'm a really lazy vaper. And an old git. And grouchy. So don't make any nasty comments, lol.

So much for my science lesson ...

That's all well and good, but he was talking about the juice thickening up, not darkening. I mean really, gramps. Do try to keep up.

All part of the same process you young whipper snapper. Read and learn! To clarify further ... Juices that have a thick viscosity or a dark color tend to "caramelize" inside of the tank. Even lighter e-juices can carmelize. The e-liquid thickens over time, which can lead to gunk building up on the coil and can cause spitting and gurgling. If you leave these thicker types of juices in your vape tank for too long without vaping them, you might have to replace the coil sooner than you normally would have to because of the residue left by the juice.
