Where Did My Flavor Go?
e Liquid Losing Flavor? Things You Can Do
Your e-juice bottles of Hawk Sauce, Blue Moo, Demon Energy and have just been delivered. Sweet! Now you have more than 2 weeks worth of great-tasting e-juice – nothing to worry about, life is good.
You took a long drag and savored that oh-so-flavorful vapor. But by the third or fourth drag, the vape has become cool and the flavor has turned very bland. With every draw, the vape tastes more and more like flavorless nicotine.
You set your e-cig aside for a while, wondering why it’s losing flavor. After an hour, you pick it up again and start vaping. The first two or three draws are flavorful but quickly turn bland by 5th draw. Rinse and repeat. What on earth is going on!?
Isolating The Problem – Cartridge, Battery, Or Atomizer?
When your e liquid is losing flavor with every draw, there could be different factors in play. It’s possible that battery doesn’t deliver enough power, or your atomizer might be at fault.
Don’t panic – try changing your e-cig’s battery and atomizer to isolate the problem. Considering switching between low- and high-resistance atomizers, and make sure the atomizers you try out are new and in perfect working condition. And finally, you also want to ensure that your cartridge has enough e-liquid.
Another possible reason why you’re losing flavor is that the atomizer isn’t getting enough e-liquid through the tank system. If you suspect this is true for your case, it’s highly recommended to switch to dual-coil cartomizers.
Many vapers who experienced the same dilemma fixed the issue by making the switch. You see, dual-coil cartomizers, as the name implies, uses two coils to provide resistance of about 1.5 ohms. Moreover, these cartomizers can hold 1.5 to 3.5ml of e liquid – ensuring that you get enough flavor and vapor with every draw.
If you’ve replaced batteries; ensured that your atomizer is working; checked the cartridge for sufficient juice; or switched to dual-coil cartomizers and you’re still losing flavor, it’s possible that your tastebuds need a bit of a break from your usual e-juice flavors.
The e-cigarette and vaping community is yet to narrow this tastebud-problem of sorts down to a science. However, according to users reports and experiences, here are a few things you can do to get the flavor and awesome vaping experience back:
- Eat chocolate or drink a can of carbonated drink – not really a 100% fix but has helped others to significant extent.
- Drink more water. It’s possible that your tongue is drying out due to constant vaping, and needs some break and refreshing.
- Try mentholated or minty e-juice flavors. If you are losing flavor on a menthol/fruit flavor, try a flavor with a completely different flavor profile.
As mentioned earlier, the community is yet to narrow things down to a science. But hey, this is better than nothing. If any of the recommendations above prove useful to you, we’d love to hear about your experience!
