    Ejuice turning black in top coil clearomiser, is that normal

    Hi there,

    I am using a 2.4ml top coil clearomiser and have had a few juices which are a yellow tinge in the normal bottles, but when I start vaping them in the clearomiser they start turning a dark brown/black. Is this normal?? Any answers would be really helpful

    Cheers

    Sounds like, perhaps, you are using too many volts. Are you using a VV PV?

    juices give of lots of rank stuff, I use an ego C on fairly low voltage with just hangsen juice at the moment and it gets very dark towards the bottom of the tank.
    like noe said .. voltage does make a difference but I find even on tame volts it will darken, I always tip out the last dregs of dark juice when i top up.
    it will start to irritate the throat if you don't do this i find.
    In order of useful: Provari V2 and V1, vamo, eGo twist, Katana v3, Hex, Orion v2, LavaTube, eGo x 6, VMAX, 510N, Tick V2, Tick V1, noEgo 18650, noEgo 14650 , Indulgence x 2, 905 6v mod, KR808D

    I've been vaping at 4.2 volts and the clearomiser feels pretty warm because I've been hammering it. If I continually top up, does that stop it from happening?

    The heavier particles and those with a higher bonding affinity, will not wick as well as others of the opposite type.
    These molecules also tend to have higher boiling points. Meaning they won't vapourise completely at the temperature of your atomiser, as well as condensing a lot faster.

    Most of these happen to be the coloured particles in your juice, that's why it becomes darker over time. Certain juices are worse than others too and the rate at which it occurs depends on your setup. It's nothing to worry about, just dump the dregs every few refills.

    Waste not, want not.

    I paid good money for my juices, I throw nothing out.

    I bet when you smoked, you unrolled the butts of each cig you had & rolled them into a new cig too right?
    You probably threw out or gave away more $ in tobacco per week than the total $ you vape per week. Even if you threw out 2mls per week, you'd be throwing out less than $1 worth of juice.
    If you really want to vape the nasty blackened crud, then go ahead, I'd rather chuck it out & vape something nice & fresh.

    I've got a theory about this.

    I thought i'd solved this problem by buying no nic dekang and adding my own HC nic. I had my juice staying perfectly clear for the life of the SD in many different SDs. All perfect... Until last week.

    Last week i was using a V2 with my triple menthol mixed to 12mg. In fact it was the very same mix, from the same 50mg bottle as the others that stayed clear. But this one went dark. the only difference is this is one of those SD's where the tolerances at the top of the atty stem (where it meets the underside of the mouthpiece inside the SD) isn't good, it's off centre by almost a mm.

    So here's my theory; it's either air-tightness. I.e. Plain old air causing the browning, much like an apple goes brown when cut. Or foreign particles. In this case, if it's foreign particles, it could be a little bit of fluff from the paper towel i used to clean the mouthpiece (usually i use a microfibre cloth for sunnies, but couldn't find it at the time).

    I believe it's mainly from oxidation of the nic. and sometimes other additives
    It will happen more or less depending on what it's mixed with, the setup, and the overall temperature.
    If you are hard at it, everything gets hotter and speeds it up a bit.
