    Newbie Taste Query

    Hi all
    Just picked up a Halo Triton II and a sample pack of Halo juice plus Prime15 liquid all with 12mg nicotine.

    Long time smoker 40 plus years, tried 3 different liquids all are tasting for a word burnt i suppose.
    Is this normal or am i possibly doing something wrong. I dont expect to replicate smoking but thought taste may have been better.
    Any help appreciated ....got a lot to learn


    Flavours ordered or tried are Prime 15, Cookie Karma, Solar Smash and a few others from Halo Evo Sample pack which i have yet to try. I have replaced the coil with a spare in case i have done something wrong, will keep used one as spare for now.
    Also going to air out bottles for a while to see if it improves ? (cant remember terminology for it)


    cheers

    Steve

    Good work making the switch

    Sounds more like a hardware issue.... please tell us what your using to vape on, the power, coil resistance, etc if you can

    I googled it and see it's a pen.... can the power be reduced or is it fixed and you just hit the fire button?

    Really hate to see people buying expensive older gear from overseas, i know its hard for newbies, a forum visit should be the first step, not an online store

    Since youve changed coils already (sometimes you can get a bad one), and its not a variable device (as far as we can tell, because theres no info, its unlikely youre using too much voltage or too high wattage), youre probably stuck with either a badly performing device or the juice is crud

    This is near enough along the lines of some other poor newbie that bought a not dissimilar kit the other day Broken vape and need help on how to fix it!

    Since power is fixed it's not going to fire at too high a power....

    I'm thinking the coil was maybe not primed with enough juice before it first fired.... if not primed enough or if fired without vaping air through it the wick could burn.

    If the wick is burned then that's all you'll taste until you put a new coil in.

    edit: You didn't try test firing everything first before putting juice in did you???

    They wouldnt really have sent 0.75 ohm coils with that kit? surely?

    When u put a coil in make sure you drip some juice on it to saturate the cotton and once you fill your tank and have it ready to go allow it to sit for 5 - 10 mins and do a few pulls without firing it to make sure the coil is saturated otherwise you burn the cotton and it will taste horrible
