Disposable vape taste burnt

Have you ever experienced a burnt taste when using a disposable vape? Well, there can be a few reasons for that. Assuming you bought your disposable vape from a reputable store, most of the factors behind your disposable vape tasting burnt can be avoided. In this blog, Vapor Shop Direct Distribution will help you identify and (in most cases) troubleshoot the issue.


What is a burnt hit and what are its causes?

If you have not experienced a burnt hit, then you’ve been doing many things right. Just to give you an idea of what it feels like and tastes like, a burnt hit gives you a bitter and vile taste that remains in your mouth for a long time. This is enough to singlehandedly ruin your vaping experience, making you want to toss away your vape pod.

Running low on e-liquid

An issue with some (mostly low-end and off-brand) vape pods is running out of e-liquid. If there is not enough e-liquid on the wick within your atomizer coil, it may give out a burnt flavour. When there is not enough e-liquid in a low-end disposable vape to be soaked into the wick, the coil gets too hot and overheats what little e-liquid remains which then causes the bitter, burnt taste.

Chain Vaping

Taking a lot of puffs in a row is known as Chain Vaping. It is probably the most common cause of getting a burnt taste from a disposable. When Chain Vaping without intervals in between puffs, the wick does not have enough time to soak up the e-liquid required for one puff. This causes the wick to dry out and produce a burnt taste. It will be smart to give the disposable at least a 15 seconds interval between puffs to get the best flavour out of your vape.


How to get rid of the burnt taste when vaping

Having burnt hits can be annoying. It will give your taste buds a nasty, bitter long-lasting taste which will make you dizzy and giddy and ruin your overall vaping experience. If you want to get rid of burnt hits for good, then here are some easy fixes. Just try these fixes and do them whenever you are vaping, and it will work like a charm.

Giving the vape a break before the next puff

Like we’ve mentioned, Chain Vaping is the most common cause of burnt hits. Chain Vaping is fine when you give your vape time to resettle for the next puff. To avoid encountering burnt hits when chain vaping, try taking longer, slower puffs, leaving 15 to 20 seconds between each puff. This gives the wick enough time to soak up the e-liquid and provide you with the best flavour possible.

Avoiding colder temperatures

In colder temperatures, the viscosity of the e-liquid of the vape increases and the e-liquid tends to thicken. When the e-liquid thickens, it becomes harder for the e-liquid to flow into the atomizer or wick. It is best if you can vape in temperatures between 0-35°C.



If you are using disposable vapes, then you are on the luckier side of the vape community: when compared to vape mods, getting a burnt hit in a disposable is relatively very low. However, there is nothing wrong with extra precautions. If you still get burnt hits even though you have tried all these fixes, it will be best to consider buying a new disposable from a trusted brand and seller.
