    Kayfun Lite+ clone. Advice sought.

    Hi folks, built a 1.6ohm kanthal 28g wire coil, wicked it with organic cotton & filled with my favourite juice. Tastes like s#*!. Perhaps more like sewing machine oil. OK, stripped it down, washed it all again with hot water & detergent. Re wicked with new cotton - same taste! Got to be something I'm doing, or not doing? Any ideas?
    Cheers, Type A.

    Did you clean the drip tip. I had the same problem with mine always had a funny taste. Turned out to be a smidge of machine oil on the inside of the drip tip . for some weird reason I'd always left that out of the cleaning regime lol...

    soak the whole thing including drip tip in isopropyl alcohol, scrub with an old toothbrush, rinse thoroughly.

    perhaps the cotton your using requires boiling?

    Big thanks to Hidden1 for his awesome work on my box mod! (vapeOholic ejuice is my crack/cocaine)

    Thanks all, rewashed then soaked in Isopropyl alcohol, rewashed again. Definitely better but not the "Mother of all vapes" that I was hoping for. Do Silica wicks offer any greater advantages?

    Silica will be worse IMO - has it's own taste.

    I had a Fasttech clone of the 3.1ES Kayfun - tasted terrible. Got he Kayfun Lite+ V2 clone from them, and no bad taste after cleaning. What one specifically do you have, out of interest?

    sounds like the problem is the cotton wool. I had the same problem with mine. Then i got the sterilized stuff from VK and its been all goos since then:
