I waited anxiously to get my totally wicked titan 510 in the mail, after trying an Njoy disposable from the gas station. i tried an ecig & loved it instantly. now, i have my own & the taste is terrible. idk what to do other than return it. i was looking so forward to it only to be disappointed....

I even checked out the forums prior to my purchase, but am unclear if i can fix my prob...tried searching for a resolution but i can't find it.

please help.

Did you pickup some bottled liquid with your purchase? Usually when your ecig tastes like plastic it's because you have not had enough liquid on the atomizer. Atomizers need to be kept moist in order to work correctly or they will burn out.

I am thinking your atty needs to be blown out and primed with eJuice. A brand new atty has some pretty nasty tasting liquid in it.

When the atty is try it will taste like what you have described.

Sometimes the element in the atomizer is not totally centered and leans to one side, this causes the plastic portion of the cart to start to melt and gives you a plastic taste. Have you checked the cart to see if is is melting?
