I know you do but have to ask...
Do you dry burn and wash your hands before wicking?



I never dry burn my hands and I don't wash them either, before wicking.

Pulse your coil once or twice before wicking and also washing your hands before wicking. Pulsing the coil removes oil residue and washing you hands before handling the cotton prevent transference of the natural oils and or dirt from them.

Man, is a newly wrapped coil. What oil could be on it?

I know, I know... 😬

Good news, after a full couple of tanks the bad taste is starting to vanish. 😃


Thank you FoxVape. I appreciate it.

The bad taste is gone, after some refillings. Thank you guys for the tips.

Now it tastes good.

This thread reminded Me of a Tripod I have that smelled & tasted So Bad It was unusable! I had stripped it down a number of times & ran it thru the U.S. Cleaner, but still no Go :( I revisited it last night, I found the problem under the curb screws! When I removed them the smell was unbelievable! I ran it thru the U.S. Cleaner again with Dawn dish soap & finally I got the Tripod to work with out a wicked Stench!
For anyone who finds them self in this situation, it's Key to strip the atty down as much as posable to find the source of the Smell!
I find the U. S. cleaner & dish soap is the best for cleaning residual machine Oil!

It's a pretty good atty! Now that it don't Stink! Pretty clever design :)

Mine (Ulton) has not been used for almost a year. I couldn't make it not to gurgle.

The 2 spaces for inserting the wick look pretty big. Try wicking as normal then experiment by packing out these spaces either side of the wick with a little extra cotton

You may dry hit if you overdo it, but sometimes this works.

Thanks. I've tried every possible wicking method without luck. When the liquid reaches the middle of the tank it starts to gurgle.

It doesn't matter. The Tripod is a bit over-engineered for my liking, too many pieces, which makes the cleaning process tedious.

Gurgling is usually a vacuum issue, Check your O-rings. I had to be very careful putting mine back together cause of O-ring fitment.
I had to lube up both the rings & part to get them together with out moving the O-ring out of place :(
There are 2 between the AFC & the main deck piece that could easily go out of place & not be noticed!
