I've always found that after a clean, any atomizer is brighter in flavour until it gets coated in eliquid.

Only time I've ever had this issue is when I let an RDTA sit for a few weeks with some residual juice in it without using it. It might have been kanthal, but it also night have been ss. Anyways if you have cleaned the tank numerous times there's gotta be a variable your missing.

To be fair I never get a metal taste with coils otherwise. Ss316l us my favorite now, and I have this issue less now.

Could be your juice is too acidic? Vaping some fruit flavors could bring out a metallic taste from the tank/coil?

IDK just a guess, never had that problem. Hope you get it resolved without binning the Prime.

Same in that i never get that metal taste with SS as I did with early chinese kanthal.
Tried a few of the really cheap packages of 200 already coiled wires and had to chuck them...

Wonder what wire the OP is using?



Edit: Often had to chuck the wires that came with atomizers and used my own only. Reached the point that i just automatically tossed what came with them. That was 2 years ago though so i haven't any idea of the quality of wire used today.

Hi all,

thanks for your feedback so far. Here my replies:

O-Rings:
thats right I had a similar issue with a friends KF5 a fews month ago.. He came to me and told me the Tank is tasting horrible but it was just the juice he used. But I was only able to get it clean from this flavor by changing the O-Rings.

So I did that 1 hour ago and used the replacement O-Rings. But still have the same metal flavour.

Cotton and Wires:

I'am using UD Kanthal - I tried different ones. MY favorit 32ga x4 (twisted) and 28ga without any difference.
Same wire taste great in my Skyline, KF5, KF3 mini and TF Gt3 (currently I'am using my skyline and a KF5 with same cotton, wire and juice).
Same applies to cotton - no issues here with any of my other tanks. I'am switching between the one from UD and some Japanese organic cotton (don't know the brand). Both are giving me a great flavor but I prefer the one from UD. In general feel free to recomment good cotton to me but I can exclude it.

Juice:
I can also exclude the juice as it was not this long in the tank at all and it tastes great in any other tank.
I'am currently using cactus and coffee - but I'am vaping coffee most of the time (except if I drink a beer).

I put them again into a Wodka bath and let them soak until tomorrow and maybe put them into the dishcleaner hopefully this type of soap is more aggressive... Last try :(

Don't vape anything else before you do and stay with that tank for the day.

I know this may sound dumb... but did you also thoroughly clean the drip tip and it's o-rings?

I have another one just shipped and the extension kits. The ST glass that arrived is fine too.
