Istick with mini nautilus, started tasting funny/burnt so I changed the coil but it still tastes bad. Any ideas?

Are you filling it and puffing straight away? It should be left to soak up the juice for a while?

I primed the wick with juice and left it for 5 mins, but still tastes awful. The tank is now drying after being washed out with warm water and will see what it is like in the morning.

I leave it for longer than 5 minutes, usually at least 15 minutes to be on the safe side. Once you've burnt those coils they're knackered, and they're not washable as they are cotton wicks.

What ohm coils and what wattage are you using?

Have you used this juice before?

If it's a 20w iStick they are notoriously over-powered and can suddenly put out too much power. You can re-set it by:
Turn to highest volts setting, press fire button
Turn to lowest volts and press fire button
Do the same for watts and then set to your chosen wattage.
It should be more reliable now!

I think it may have been a dodgy replacement coil or me getting it wet when rinsing out the tank. All solved by a trip to the vape shop this morning for replacement coils.
