Kanger T2 Burned Taste
Posted 05 June 2013 - 02:12 PM
Ok after about 2 weeks of use I think I have gone through my first atomizer heads on my Kanger T2 on two of my tanks. There is a distinct burned taste and the liquid is much darker in the clearo than when I first put it in. I am having to lower my voltage in order to resolve this short term. I have a few questions:
I have a bunch of T2s. After I discard the atomizer head and remaining burned tasting liquid from the tank should I soak the old tank in alcohol overnight and use a new one, then put a new atomizer on the old T2 after it dries the next time I need a change? Is it OK to wash it out, blow out the excess water, install a new head, and vape away on the same tank? Is the darkness of the liquid, easily twice as dark as when I put it in, a good indicator it is time to change the head?
I had this image that it would be better to just screw on a new T2, soak and sanitize the old one, and then put a new head wick assembly on the old one the next time I need to change.
I also read on another forum that people wash the wicks before using them. I have never seen that here. Do any of you do this on new heads?

Once a coil either stops working, tastes burnt or starts to consistently be harder to draw from -- it's time to change the coil to a new one. I take out the old coil, dump the juice if it's dark (if it's not super dark I just leave it and/or top it off with new juice), screw in the new coil, wait just a bit for the wick to soak up the juice and vape.
If the juice is really dark then I dump the juice, rinse the tank, let dry overnight, refill, screw in a new coil and vape after waiting a few minutes.
I've never rinsed wicks before using but it might not be bad, just never saw a reason to do it.

I use all T-2s. I like to rinse the wicks, pat with paper towell and let dry, if I'm going to change flavors. Unless I'm in a hurry. Only had one change the color of the juice. Changed the coil, their cheap. That's why I like them.
