I was just wondering if this was normal, or if I was doing something wrong. The throat hits I experienced early on were nothing like what I am experiencing now. There is a harsh burn in the back of my throat. It's happening constantly now. Am I doing something wrong? Is it supposed to feel like this?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Hey Shana, Have you upped your nic level? PG or VG? How old is your atty? Those are the first questions I would have to ask.

Nope, the nic level is actually the same, maybe a little lower (12mG). It's a PG/VG mix I believe, it's Sweet Caroline from iVape. The atomizer is brand new. I just got it in the mail today, it is a low resistance atomizer though.

You can get that when you run out of Juice. Are you dripping or using cartridges?

I'm dripping, but I had just dripped a few drops on the LR atty. The very first hit I took was a very harsh burn. I switched back to my old atty (standard 510, non-LR) and it doesn't burn. Is there a problem with the atty?

it sounds like the primer on the atty.......
try blowing out the atty--blow through the small hole at the end of the atty--hold over a papertowel or some such. then push the corner of papertowel or kleenex into open end of atty and let sit for a couple minutes to drain any excess liquid. reprime the atty with 2-3 drops of liquid and try vaping...should help the burn.
the primer is nasty stuff !!!

You just went to an ego with an LR atty? That'll definitely produce way more heat. You might get used to it or drop the nic if you can. Stupid question, how long you been vaping and what did you smoke before. Also, the LR atty will burn through Juice a little quicker. Dripping takes a little practice, I gave up for months before going back.

Yeah, I had the regular 510 attys before then. I have been vaping for about two weeks now, and before I quit I was waffling between American Spirits and Marlboro menthol lights. It definitely seems to be burning through Juice quicker. Every 3 or 4 hits I am having to drip again, but even then it still burns.

Really shouldn't be burning. Usually I do three drops, get about 7-10 hits, maybe more. If I let it sit, get another 5-7. You are at a pretty low level of nic. Do you have another LR atty you can try?

Ya may just need to break the beast in :)

I know what you mean with the harsh hits, I get them sometimes too. It's probably just that the parts are all new and needs to be broke in. The LR's do seem to hit a lot differently from the reg atty's too, in my little bit of experience with them, they do produce a harder hit.
