Ego-C has burnt taste and no flavor.. Help?
« on: January 08, 2012, 11:25:47 AM »
I've had my Ego-C for a day now and I haven't had a single good draw from it. I've tried 2 of the LR attys and I'm using the Titan RY4 juice. Inhale tastes like nothing but air and the exhale tastes like burnt air. I get no throat hit whatsoever. I just want to know if I'm doing something wrong because every review I read seems really positive and I would really like to share the experience of the reviewers. Thanks for any help.

Hi Smokie,

I'm sorry to hear your having this kind of trouble  :( There is one thing springs to mind that might cause this though. Overfilling the tank.
I've discovered the C likes a tank that has a generous airspace left when filling or topping up. It should then hopefully vape like a goodun ;)
Give it a try ;)

Yep. I've tried this. As well as shaking it and giving 4 really hard pulls without pressing the button. Giving 4 hard pulls is the only thing I've tried that gives me any kind of result, but it's only a decent vape and only lasts for one drag. So I have to do this everytime before i vape.. :'(

Smokie, The C really doesn't need or like too much priming. If your giving it 4 really hard cold draws before vaping then you are most certainly flooding the atty :( and that would explain your lack of vapour and throat hit.

My suggestion is. Take the tank out of the cone and try vaping directly on the end of the cone a few times.
This should help clear out the excess juice and restore the performance.

Have you tried another atty head?
There could be something wrong with just this one.
Maybe the wick is missing or missplaced ?
If you take another atty head, that is working, looking into the spike of both are they the same?

edit:

Sorry just saw that you said 2 atties...
Have you tried the regular ones?
I found the lr attys to just taste burnt and being very harsh to my throat.

I just tried not priming for about 20 mins and instead of the air taste, i just get a really harsh burning taste. i just tried removing the tank and vaping from the cone, and it's now back to the no taste on inhale, no flavor, and slight burning taste on exhale..  :'(

No, I only bought the LR atties  :'(

Ah sorry, only just noticed you said you were using the LR atties, my bad   :-[  Yeah I would defiantly give the standard atties a try. They give more than enough performance for my liking.
Any more would be too much for me TBH.
