Any ideas why? I've changed it before and no problems. I've screwed it in tighter and turned the battery down but no joy.

Did you give the actual tank - the glass bit - a wash with warm water & then dry it?

I sometimes find that new coils can have a burnt taste for a little while, something to do with coatings or something used when they make them. I'm assuming you did give it a few minutes for the juice to soak in before using it (voice of experience blush)

Magimedi, no I didn't do that. Should I empty it and do it now?!

Allergic, yes it's been in for aaaaaaages now and still burnt. Boo.

It's mostly at the end of a drag. I'll give it a clean.

And the other thing to do is turn the volts/watts up to as high as you can & press & hold the button for 5 seconds (without it in your mouth!).

Wow! Thanks. How do people know this stuff?!

How do people know this stuff?!

Because I've been vaping for three years & have picked up a lot en route - much of which has come from the vaping vipers of Mumsnet!

Honestly, when I first started I poured my liquid straight through the tank onto the table & was very confused.

Vaping is such a (relatively) new thing that it's so hard to find good & reliable info about it.

I promise it gets easier the longer you've been at it!

(Like many other things!! )

ANd posted in a hurry & meant to say that our mantra on here is:

"No question is too stupid to ask".

All of us have been beginners & fairly foxed by it all - and those of us that have been at it a bit longer are always happy to help.

With a nautilus you have to let the juice soak into the coil for a few minutes before you vape. Once the coil is burnt I think it stays burnt, I'd bin it and start with a new one.
