Even the most experienced vaper will encounter a bitter e-liquid at some point. Whether you are trying out new flavors as a rookie, or a seasoned vaper that suddenly finds a favorite flavor bitter, this guide will help you avoid bitter e-liquid.
1. You Are Vaping Only One E-liquid
After using just one single flavor of e-liquid, a vaper might find that the taste begins to change. No matter how much you love a particular flavor, try to avoid vaping with only that flavor. This is because you start to get used to the taste of the e-liquid, and stop noticing it. When this happens, the taste of the nicotine will become more predominant. This is when even your most loved e-liquid will start to take on a bitter taste. To avoid this, you can still find the right flavor that satisfies you and then a couple extras that you enjoy as well and rotate at least two or even three different flavors.
2. You Don’t Keep the Wick Primed
Don’t get too lazy with your vape- you should always prime the loop and saturate the wick before you vape. When you are reassembling the tank, you should prepare by dripping a small amount of juice on the cord and the coil. After you have done this, wait a couple minutes so that the loop can become saturated with the flavor.
3. Are You Keeping It Clean?
If you want to avoid a bitter tasting vape experience, then you should make sure that you are cleaning your tank correctly. If you are not cleaning your tank at least once a week, then you could have found the reason that your vape juice is giving you a bitter experience. This is because dust, dirt, and sugar particles that have caramelized build up quickly. Simply rinse the tank after cleaning with hot water and, if you are using RDA, make sure that the cotton is regularly changed.
4. You Could Be Using The Incorrect Setting
Sometimes, it is as simple as adjusting the setting on your vaporizer. This is because the power setting for the coil usually determines the taste and flavor of the e-liquid. If you are experiencing a bitter taste, then it could be a simple matter of experimenting with the power settings until you find one that is best for the e-liquid you are using. Read reviews other users have written about the e-liquid and see if you can find some tips for the right power settings.
Make sure that you purchase a quality e-liquid. Some companies are looking for quick profits and may skimp certain things such as steeping the e-liquids to save production time and costs. An e-liquid that hasn’t been steeped for long enough could result in a bitter taste.
