    So it wasn't my batteries causing the burning. It was the coils. Not genuine Aspire heads. They burn after about 20 hits or so.

    So my Fast Tech order took 5 months to arrive and contained faulty BVC coils & a faulty kick.

    Unfortunately I'm going to have to live with rank burnt tasting vaping for the next few days until my new order arrives.

    Live and learn.

    Unlucky Blake ): I've been stung by shitty coils in the past too. Even genuine Aspire ones have gone the same way for me. Sometimes, it's just shoddy craftsman ship.

    This is where you need to look into rebuilding, so you can skip relying on a company and just do it yourself!

    Oh, Kraken have revised their "discounts" and coupons page. Check the below;

    He's got the MVP for that.

    I think he had an MVP anyway.

    SCOOT, DO YOU HAVE AN MVP?

    SCOOT, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO READ OHMS ON AN MVP?

    Also, I keep wanting to say Ken Ohm for some reason, and imagining a small chinese man vaping on soy sauce and recoiling using chopsticks.

    Fuck, not happy with 5P Queenside, I thought I'd like it. But it tastes too bitter, maybe a few days steeping will take that edge off it.

    This is the description:

    "Delicate blood orange intensifies this citrus based flavor. Harmoniously blended with creamy French vanilla for a gentle and exquisite balance that will carry from one flavor to the next."

    Not enough vanilla to offset the orange :/

    Should it need steeping? It's been steeped in the states, steeped on the way to the UK. More steeping?!?

    Blaketown, that's really shit. Would you like me to send you a coil while you're waiting?

    How would it have been steeped on the way to the UK in a sealed botted, in box, in a shipping container wrapped in bubble wrap and cling film? Yes, it's stepped in the states to the intended flavour, but it's too intense for me so I'm going to let it breathe to take the edge off.

    I typically don't like citrus flavours, but I thought this would be different. Ah well :(

    Eleaf Lemo tank turned up this morning. Used the coil that was already installed [1.14Ω], didn't even have to clean anything. Changed out the cotton and filled it with 5ml of Herbal Tides' Captain Custard [think egg custard tart] and I have to say - it's everything all they said it was on YooToob - thick tasty vape with no leakyness or fiddlyness or hassle of any kind. Unfortunately a couple of new video reviews have been posted since I ordered it from Innovapours so it's now out of stock. I wouldn't go for anything with pre-made heads, including the Atlantis, over this. But the new Kanger Sub Tank looks promising... hmm.

    Well, it'd still be in a box in the dark, in probably a coolish place, think that qualifies as further steeping time for me.

    Nah, thanks though.

    I've ordered another pack of 5, they may well arrive tomorrow if I'm lucky. I've still got a couple of the dodgy ones left.

    I figured out if I leave it a while between Puff's it doesn't burn. I guess the wick is just shit and takes ages to soak.

    Sorry, I'm a bit prickly today. I'm just miffed that I don't like it as it costs a bit. :( :(

    Yeah, can understand that Razz. You can be prickly with me anytime! :D

    Chin up, it might get better.

    Looking at your description though, there's no way that describes a bitter flavour profile. Send it back and complain for that price. I would.

    Citrus with vanilla has never agreed with me. Sweet Prudence by Halcyon Haze is about the same. Sucks Razz :/

    It shouldn't be, it's a winning combination in food.

    It shouldnt be what? Something I think tastes bad? OK, I'll let my taste buds know you said that, thanks for the memo :D

    No, wasn't saying you SHOULD like it, more that it's a decent combination of flavours. It shouldn't really be bitter anyway.

    Eh, it just sounds wrong to me. I think of the sharp, citric Orange flavour and then trying to add cream to it... just doesn't sound right :( But I haven't tried much in the way of that combination.

    Theoretically it should be good, and I should love it considering how much I love Rhubarb and Custard, which again is another very citric, very sharp taste.

    Maybe breathing it as Razz mentioned he'll do will improve it.

    Also, j66, I really want to have a proper look at the Lemo. eLeaf are putting out some great products recently, and I saw Rip Trippers and Twisted420's reviews last night. Looks great.

    Blood orange and vanilla panacotta. I made one not too long ago, cause I'm a bit of a foodie snob as well as a vaping snob! ;) Yes, it's tricky for it not to be too citrus and sharp and get the balance right, but by fucks it was good.

    Perhaps they just went OTT with the Citric element then. I'll have to see if any vape shops near by have it in for a tester. I'm curious now :D

    Also, using more of that Lancashire Steam Company "The Governor" today. It's great, as I have a cold coming on, so it feels like vaping lemsip.

    Still doesn't touch The Seven though :( I need to find a cloudy lemonade supplicant till Kraken sorts himself out.

    @godofporn Doesn't look too bad for a telescopic VV tube! I'm loving my iStick. So great in the hand, and it feels really well made. Battery lasts me a couple of days too!

    I do wish they'd change their name though. ELeaf iStick, brought to you by iSmoka.

    Stop trying to be Apple!

    Hmmmm I have a thing against ecigs looking like the iStick. I don't know why but I prefer a long tube. I know its weird.
