Rainbow juice Hitting harsh? Coil issues? Cotton??
So i have gotten juice begining of last week from a friend who makes his own.. Never had homemade juice and always had gotten from a store like vapinUSA... Well he mixed it to a 70vg/30pg and i usually do a 50/50... nic lvl is 3 if that matters. After a few days with a brand new coil, it started to hit as if i was dry hitting... I looked at the wick, and it was moist... i wasnt sure if the juice was too thick or what.. so i did dilute it a bit with some water.. THat helped for a whopping hour and then went back to dry hitting flavor.. Ugh.. 


Tank Aspire something.. Like the first version of it from vapin usa... 
Coil : Unsure.. sorry... 
Watts usually 25 about
mod: Joytech eVic VT


im trying to attach a pic so its easier for you guys to figure out... but im not sure if its working..

That is the Atlantis tank and you are probably using the .5ohm coil so 25W is OK. Factory coils do not like high VG juice - it is too thick - go back to 50/50 and you will be fine - it really sounds as if the coil cannot handle the juice.

Definitely the juice you are using in that tank.

I concur, his juice doesn't agree with your coil. I'd just like to add that diluting it with non purified water is a bad idea in the long term, there's lots of undesirable chemicals in tap water that really shouldn't be vaped.

Too many variables, and we don't know your juice.  70/30 SHOULDN'T be a problem in an Atlantis - but that doesn't mean that in this case, the juice isn't too thick.  Still - it worked for a while...  My guess is, you aren't getting dry hits - your coil is gunked up and tasting like crap.  Sometimes a badly gunked up coil can taste/feel like a dry hit.  If the only thing that changed was the juice - the problem is the juice.  If it wasn't too thick for several days - the problem isn't the viscosity.  

Process of elimination, I'm gonna say something he's using as a flavor or sweetener is gunking up your coils.

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

Thats whay o thoight too. But when i looked the coil/wick was still pretty white. I just put a new coil in when i got his juice. I wosh i had more info on the juice to give you. When i shook the bottles, hardly had movement. Added the water n shook and it mixed quite well. Every time i had a "harsh hit" the coil wasnt dry which made me even more confused.

Ih if this helps. I put juice thru the mouth piece. Only a few drops thinking th wick was dry. Vaped and had a decent taste for like 1.5 hits. Them back to nasty.

The other thing i did...... was hit the button and blew into the vape. Causeing the cloud to come out the air vent. For a few seconds. Vaped normally and had a clean hit for one or two. Then back to gross.

Sorry for typos. I'm on my phone.

If the juice didn't move when you shook it, it stands a chance your pal got his measurements wrong, 70/30 is very fluid.
 Water boils off at a much lower temperature than vg, even though the coil is wet it doesn't mean it won't dry hit. Once the water is off the immediate vicinity of the coil it'll dry hit, vg takes a little while to capillary in where water wouldn't.
