4 Ways To Stop Getting E-Juice In Your Mouth


the_face_i_make_when_i_get_e-juice_in_my_mouth

Imagine this: you just got your favorite e-juice from the store or in the mail which you’ve filled your tank u with. You have a fresh set of coils and cotton that are ready when you are. You might even have a cup of coffee or your favorite drink with you.

Your little heart gets excited as you anticipate the 3-5 second goodness of vaping heaven, then you take a toot.

“Mmm, this is good!” Second toot, “mmm, this is REALLY good!”

All is well in the world. You kick back, relax, and enjoy the flavor on the exhale of your vape. The flavor is great and on-point.

But then you notice something, as you smack your lips, you start tasting the e-juice from your lips all the way down to your tongue, as if you took a swig out of that e-juice bottle you just got.

“Wait, what is this? Eww!”

You quickly run and grab the nearest napkin and wipe off (or spit out, depending on how much juice got into your mouth) the excess liquid from your mouth. What started off as a pleasant vaping experience has now turned into a gross encounter.

And no, you can’t keep vaping like this, something has to be done!

Has this ever happened to you? Even worse, does this constantly happen to you to the point where you just don’t care anymore?

There are simple fixes to this problem ensuring you get your favorite e-juice in vapor form and not getting liquid in your mouth.

E-Juice is supposed to be vaped, not drank

Commonly known as “spit back,” this is when e-juice spurts out of your drip tip and into your mouth whenever you vape.

There are different reasons for this happening. One cause would be not applying enough cotton on your coils. Since there isn’t enough cotton to suck up all the e-juice, your coils get drenched which causes the juice to spurt back out whenever the wires get heated.

Some manufacturers have made spit back guards in their tanks where a mesh is placed between the chimney and drip tip, blocking any liquids from coming back out.

But if your tank doesn’t have a spit back guard, then there a few quick fixes which will have you vaping on your favorite e-liquid, and not drinking it.

4 fixes for spit back

Here are 4 things you can do if you are experiencing e-juice getting into your mouth whenever you vape. The first 2 are for when you are at home  or any place which will allow you to disassemble your tank.

The last 2 are quick fixes you can do if ever you are outdoors and don’t have the time or the tools to take your your tank apart. They should give you a temporary fix, but won’t get rid of the problem completely. You have to refer to the first 2 tips to eliminate spit back from ever getting in the way of your vaping again!


Un-flood your tank – the most common cause for spit back is a flooded tank. A tank gets flooded when you either a.) don’t have the atomizer on properly or b.) you didn’t put enough cotton to absorb all the e-liquid, or c.) a million and one other reasons depending on how your tank is built. What you will need to do is take your tank apart and make sure all the parts are in place properly. Make sure your juice holes are aligned. For replaceable atomizers, make sure the atomizer is in its proper place. A lot of these new tanks use chimneys so a common mistake would be the atomizer being stuck on the base and not in line with the chimney. For rebuildable tanks, see to it that you have enough cotton placed in the coils. When you insert your cotton through your coils, it should fit snug inside the wrapped coils. If it comes in from one end to another very easily that means you don’t have enough cotton. The cotton will shrink once it gets saturated and won’t be any use to you whenever you vape.

Clean out your tank – So let’s say you did everything I said in tip 1, but you are still getting spit back. It’s most likely there is still e-juice trapped in your tank. You need to clean it until your tank is clean as a whistle and allowing e-juice to be in the place where it’s supposed to be. One way I clean out my tank is I wrap it in a napkin and blow into the tank with the air holes open. Do this until all the excess juice comes out through the air holes. Another way is by flicking your tank (wrapped in a napkin) in a sharp, powerful motion using your wrists until all excess juice is removed.

Tighten your air holes – Let’s say you’re in a bar or at work and the setting doesn’t allow you to disassemble your tank. A quick fix would be tightening your air holes. When you close your air holes a little the vacuum of air won’t be so strong which will lessen or eliminate from coming back out.

Lower your wattage – If you didn’t put enough cotton in your build, then lowering your wattage should stop e-juice from spurting out of your tank whenever you vape.


For me, one of the most annoying things that could happen when vaping is getting e-juice in my mouth. I just don’t like it. E-juice is supposed to be vaped.

What’s sad is some people act like it’s nothing, to the point where they actually start enjoying it. No, this is wrong and it shouldn’t be this way whenever you vape.

What it all comes down to is knowing how your tank functions and how to put it together properly. Read the manual carefully or you can refer to videos online which teach people how to do a proper build on a certain tank. You don’t have to keep on vaping like this, all it needs is a little more work.

Hopefully this helps those of you going through this problem and helps you enjoy vaping the way it should be!

How To Make Your Coils Last Longer


Yup, time to change those coils!

Probably the one thing people love the most about vaping is the variety of e-juice flavors you can choose from.

Not only that, but e-liquid makers have been doing a very good job at replicating some of our favorite snacks and candies.

Whether it’s baked apple pie, Fruit Loops cereal or strawberry sherbet, most manufacturers have been pretty spot on when transforming deliciousness into liquid form.

But no matter how good your e-liquid may taste, a very important factor in getting the right taste lies in the condition of your coils. Once the gunk starts building up on your coils, it’ll turn things around real quick.

It really bums me out when I start getting that burnt, metallic, rusty taste in my mouth. You know what that means, time to clean or replace your coils.

But if you’re like me, cleaning or replacing your coils isn’t something you look forward to. I actually hate it. From dry-burning your coils to re-wicking it, it something I’ve grown tired of doing.

So over the years, I’ve been trying different ways on how to avoid doing this thing I hate, and some of these tips have helped me a lot in avoiding this inconvenient yet necessary chore.

Here are some tips on how to make your coils last longer. They’ve worked for me, and I’m positive they will add extra mileage to your coils.


Stay away from dark e-juice – Back then, I was a very big fan of custard e-juice (thanks to Nicoticket’s “Custard’s Last Stand”). I vaped everything custard related.

I also noticed that I’d get that burnt taste more often. Whenever I would pop the lid of my tank or RDA, I’d see a mess of brown cotton and black coils. Gross to look at, even more gross knowing I was vaping on that.

Come to find out, the dye they use on darker e-liquids stick to your coils and cause buildup. They’re like a magnet on coils.

Another bad thing about having buildup on your coils is it affects the heat. You might notice your vape getting a little weaker, so naturally you would turn up the wattage.

This will do very little to improve your vape (compared to clean coils of course) and will drain your batteries even faster.

Now I’m not saying you should avoid dark colored ejuice if that’s what your preference is; but you should expect to clean your coils more often as compared to using clear e-liquid.

Thankfully, there’s a way around it, which brings us to our second tip.


Use ceramic coils – I’ve been using ceramic coils for the past few months now, and I absolutely love it! There’s a big difference when it comes to lifespan and taste between ceramics and wires.

I know some vape purists out there might dis me for what I’m about to say but I’ve just gotten tired of coil building. I’ve been doing for so long, the whole wire wrapping started feeling redundant to me.

With the current ceramic coil tank I’m using, one coil head will last me anywhere from 2 weeks to a month! And that’s with chain vaping too.

Using disposable ceramic coil heads also took building my own coils out of my hands. The vape is damn near perfect for me.

The only downside to using ceramic coils in my opinions is it uses up juice a lot quicker. I’m saving more money now with the ceramic coils, but on the flip side I’m also buying more e-liquid.

But yeah, I don’t have to worry about gunk affecting my coils as much anymore. Ceramic coils have much longer longevity compared to Kanthal, SS, Nichrome or any other wire.

If you are looking for a good ceramic tank that is cheap, easy to use, reliable, and more importantly performs great both in flavor and vapor production, might I suggest the Vaporesso Estoc Tank Mega with EUC coil.

Another thing I love about this particular brand is I could cycle through different eliquid flavors using the same coil without ever having to clean it. The coil somehow cleans itself, and the flavors never mix. I guess it’s the way it was built.

Follow these tips, and the chances of you having to clean out and re-wick your coils will drop dramatically!

Best Wire For Vaping


best-wire-for-vaping

I got a lot of hits on my post “5 Types Of Wires Used For Vaping,” and since you liked it so much I decided to do a follow up to that post.

So we know about the 5 different types of wires (Kanthal, Titanium, Nichrome, Nickel, and Stainless Steel), now which one is the best out of the four?

Which wire will give you the best vapor and best flavor out of all the wires? Yeah, I guess a lot of you out there are itching to know the answer to that one.

Wait no longer as I give my answer to what the best wire for vaping is and why.

Two wires that didn’t make it

Before I give you the top wire out of the 5, let me give you two wires that didn’t make it and why.

After some research, I found out that both Ti and Ni had some “health concerns” when it came to being used for vaping. Some vapers believe that using these two types of wires and heating them at high temperatures leaves a toxic residue which would be harmful to you in another way. Ti and Ni score low with some coil builders because they are just too springy for some vapers to work with.

Kanthal or Stainless Steel

So that leaves us with either Kanthal or SS getting the title for best wire for vaping.

Let me just say that I am a big Kanthal guy. I love Kanthal. I started off with Kanthal wire. 24 gauge is my absolute favorite type of wire to build with. It’s also very affordable which is why I like it.

That being said, I definitely have to give the title to Stainless Steel for being the best vaping wire to use!

Best wire for vapor?

 I can’t really say what the best wire is for vapor because all of this will depend on how your built is. You can cloud chase on all of these wires, it would just depend on how you build your wires.

How I got into SS

There are so many reasons why I now prefer SS over Kanthal. I’ll go over them in a little bit and tell you why.

So like I said earlier, I was doing some research for the best wire for vaping, and I came across a video from Vaping Fagan talking about a recent purchase of pre-made SS coils he made with Advanced Vape Supply.

I bought a few myself to see how the wires would work and let me tell you that it’s been one of the best purchases I’ve made for vaping recently.

Why Stainless Steel?

For me, the main reason would be the taste. The taste off of a SS coil build is so crisp it actually tastes like I’m taking a bite out of something!

I’m currently vaping on Glazed Donuts by Loaded E-liquid and I swear that sometimes when I vape, it feels like I’m taking a bite out of a warm, freshly baked Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut!

That’s how crisp and fresh the flavor is with SS wire. I shit you not, if you have a great flavor chasing tank or RDA you are using, you aren’t doing it justice by not using it with an SS build!

For all of the health conscious out there, SS is the least toxic out of the 5. Even though it costs a bit more than Kanthal, I noticed my builds last longer meaning I don’t have to change coils as often with SS, so for me it evens out the costs.

Go get some Stainless Steel now!

If you are an SS coil user then good for you, but for those of you who haven’t tried SS please do. It isn’t even that expensive (it’s wire!).

I went to Advanced Vape Supply which is a US based company and placed an order for the pre-built SS coils. I ordered a pack of the Vertebraid coil and a pack of the fused Clapton coil (each pack is 10 pieces) and it came to under $20.
