I bought this Blue Changeable Coil Clearomizer in September from SmokTek.com. I was so happy with it because I could finally taste the e-liquid flavors. The atomizer and cartridges that came with my e-cigarette were horrible, but the Changeable Coil Clearomizer was awesome because I could taste the flavor with every hit I took. It didn’t last very long at all and I was quite disappointed.
I think I got a few days of vaping out of it and then all I got was a burnt taste and I haven’t really been able to enjoy my e-cigarette since. It’s been a month since I was able to enjoy it, and here is why. It’s my fault, plain and simple, but I didn’t realize it until today.
This is what happened. I added some more e-liquid to the Changeable Coil Clearomizer and then I was looking at it and noticed the tip was on crooked, so I went to unscrew it, but it ended up popping out. I was confused because it’s supposed to unscrew. I looked inside and I could see the rubber washer sticking out between the threads. I realized I had tightened it too much and the tip came out because the little metal ring that has the screw threads on it (I know I’m using the wrong terminology, forgive me) wasn’t glued onto the tip, it must snap on or something.
I got the screw ring from the tip unscrewed and put it back on the tip and popped it back in place, then put the little rubber washer back on the tip so I don’t lose it. I looked inside the clearomizer and noticed there was another washer inside there that was sticking out, it’s the washer that ensures there is suction when you put the tip in so that it doesn’t spill out (I am assuming). I tried putting it back in place, but that didn’t work, the only way that would go back into place is if I had taken the metal ring off of the plastic of the clearomizer, and that didn’t unscrew, so my only option was to pull it out. I figured the rubber washer from the tip would keep it from spilling out, and it has worked so far, so I didn’t see an issue.
I put the tip back on and all was good, but then I started noticing that I was getting a burnt taste. It never even occurred to me that it was probably because I pulled the rubber washer out that was built into the clearomizer. So I went to the SmokTek website and bought 5 new coils, but they only had two options, 1.8-2.1 and 2.4-2.8. My clearomizer is the in between which is 2.1-2.4, so I was kinda screwed. I didn’t know what to do, so I bought the lower one, 1.8-2.1 and they came and I got a burnt taste immediately with the first hit. I toughed it out, but I couldn’t take it anymore, so I put another one in and got the same thing. UGH! It took a few days for those to get to me.
I kept going back to their website until they had the coils that were 2.1-2.4 and I bought them, and it took a few days to a week to get to me and they weren’t even the right style. I emailed them and got no response. I waited for a couple of days and nothing. I went to their website and emailed them directly from there and finally got an email. They told me to send them back and they will send me the right ones, so I did. Naturally they didn’t send me the new ones until the ones I sent them arrived, so that took about a week and half to get the new coils. I got them yesterday and they still give me a burnt taste. So my theory about the 1.8-2.1 being wrong wasn’t the issue. That’s when I realized that by pulling the washer out, I screwed it up.
Now that I know that I am the reason that I’m having so many problems, I understand that I need to buy a new changeable coil clearomizer. So when I get my check, I’m going to do that. I’m going to buy 3 more changeable coil clearomizers so that if something happens to one, then I will have 2 backups. Also, I will be able to vape 3 different flavors when I want to. The reason I will buy 3 is because they aren’t expensive, and they are under $10 which means they will charge me a $1 fee if I don’t spend $10 on my order even though it will be over $10 with shipping.
It really irritates me when I am that stupid that I can’t even tell that I am the reason that something doesn’t work. I will have to wait until Friday and it will probably take a week to get to me, so I look forward to being able to taste the awesome flavors of the Zeus E-Juice liquids again.
