My Vape Tastes Burnt, why?

Why does my vape have a burnt flavour? 

When you taste your vape and it has a burnt flavour to it, it is not a fault with your build or your coil. It is a sign that it is time to change the flavour.

When you vape, the flavour you are tasting is not the e-liquid itself but the vapour being produced by it. The burnt taste means that part of the flavouring is burning rather than vaping. 

And that is because the liquid has reached its flashpoint.

E-liquids come in many flavours, and many of those flavours have multiple ingredients that combine to produce them. Each ingredient has its own flashpoint; that’s the temperature at which it will begin to burn rather than vape. So if you use a high concentration of one particular ingredient, like cinnamon, for example, you will need higher temperatures to keep from getting a burnt taste.

Many individuals complain about experiencing burnt hits from their vaporizer, and the vapour might also taste burnt. This is a short and easy approach to troubleshooting a burnt taste that your vaporizer may be giving you.

The most common cause of a burnt flavour in your vape is because you haven’t cleaned it in a long time.

Over time, the chamber can build up a lot of burnt residue, so if you use it every day or several times a day, there’s a good risk it’ll start to taste awful after a few weeks.

This is most common with desktop vapes, which have more surface area for buildup than portable vapes. If you use a portable vape several times a day, you should clean it out on a regular basis. It’s time to clean out your vaporizer if you detect a change in taste or scent.

You may not detect a burning odour, but the vapour may not taste as good as usual.

If you don’t like to clean out your vaporizer very often (or at all), you can try stirring up the residue once in a while to reduce buildup.

Where Do You Go When Vaping To Get Rid Of The Burnt Taste?

So, you’re sick of your vaping experience being ruined by a burnt flavour – we get it – so let’s look at how to get rid of a burnt taste from your vape pen in no time.

As the temperature drops, the viscosity of your e-liquid increases. When your e-liquid thickens, it becomes more difficult for it to flow easily into the atomizer or wick.

 To have the best vaping experience, store your products between 0 and 25 degrees Celsius.

Keep an eye on the amount of e-liquid in your pods before each vape session to ensure you don’t run out.

Vape in a different way

As we previously explained, taking a lot of short, quick puffs can cause the wick to dry out. Puffs should be longer and slower, with a time between each puff of 15 to 20 seconds. By giving the atomizer or wick enough time to absorb enough liquid for your next inhale, you’ll get the best vape experience possible.

If you vape at too high a wattage, your coils may be destroyed. To keep your vaping equipment in good operating order, stay within the recommended wattage or voltage range if you’re using a variable wattage or voltage device. This information can be found on the side of your coil head or on your vaporizer’s packaging.

If you prefer to vape at a high intensity, consider upgrading your vape tank to one with a higher maximum wattage.

Most Commonly Asked Questions

Why does my vape still taste like it’s been burned?

This is due to the coil growing too hot, causing the eliquid to vaporise or evaporate too quickly. It’s conceivable that you’ve pushed your coil too far and it’s burned out if you’ve been vaping at a high wattage and noticed a burnt flavour.

Is it dangerous to vape if you have a burnt taste in your mouth?

One of the most painful things a vaper can experience is burned hits. And it can happen with almost every vape, from disposables to cloud-producing sub ohm tanks! It has the ability to spoil your day and, worse, make you quit vaping. While there are a variety of reasons for a burnt hit, the good news is that the vast majority of them can be avoided.

Is vaping with burnt coils permissible?

Depending on how much the coil is burned, you may choke or vomit right away. Depending on the type of coil used, particles can cling to the vapour and be eaten by the user when a coil is smoked dry. The particles that are produced cause allergic reactions in some persons.

What is the most effective approach to repair a burned coil?

If you have a burned coil, one of the first things you should do is remove it and place it in a small basin of warm water before giving up and purchasing a new. As a result, any e-juice that has become bonded to it will be released. After a few minutes, drain the warm water and replace it with cold water.
