How to Tell if a Disposable Vape Is Burnt

In most cases, there’s a gradual and noticeable chain of events leading to a disposable vape eventually tasting burnt. There are three different ways this can occur, and each one has a different cause. Before we discuss the possible reasons why your disposable vape tastes burnt, though, let’s talk about the symptoms.


What Are the Reasons Why a Disposable Vape May Taste Burnt?

Now that you understand what it means when a disposable vape is burnt, let’s go into a bit more detail about the reasons why this can happen. Each of the scenarios that we described above has a different cause. Once you know why your disposable vape tastes burnt, you’ll know what to do next.


Why Does Your Disposable Vape Taste Burnt After Charging?

You may have found this page because you have a disposable vape that tastes burnt after charging, and you’re trying to determine the cause. If your disposable vape doesn’t taste burnt when the battery is low – but it does taste burnt after charging – it’s likely that the device is nearly out of vape juice.

A disposable vape usually isn’t regulated to operate at a specific power level, which means that the battery always outputs its full available voltage. When the battery’s voltage is low, the device’s vapor production will drop because the coil will operate at a lower power level. If the device is low on e-liquid, you might not notice the change in flavor when the battery is low because the vapor production will be lower. When the battery is fully charged, though, the coil will operate at a higher power level – and that’s when you’ll notice the burnt flavor. You should plan to replace the device very soon in this case.


How to Fix a Burnt Coil in a Disposable Vape

If you’re here because you want to know how to fix a burnt coil in a disposable vape, we have some bad news for you. If your disposable vape tastes burnt because residue has formed on the coil or because the e-liquid supply has run out, there’s generally no way to fix the problem. Most disposable vapes aren’t designed for refilling, so you need to replace your device if it’s out of e-liquid. If your device tastes burnt because of residue from sucralose, the only way to fix the issue is by replacing the coil – and that’s not possible with a disposable vape.

If you’re not happy with disposable vapes because you find that you need to replace them too often, it might be time for you to consider upgrading to a refillable device. Many of the world’s best vapes are refillable. With a refillable vape, there’s no need to replace your entire device when it runs out of e-liquid. In the long run, you’ll save a lot of money.

Are you on the fence about switching from disposable vapes to a refillable device? Try the Innokin Endura S1. Lasting up to 6,000 puffs, the Endura S1 is both refillable and disposable – so it has the convenience of a disposable vape but lasts much longer. You can use the device as long as you like by recharging it when the battery dies and refilling it when it runs out of e-liquid. When you’re no longer happy with the flavor, you’ll dispose of the device and replace it – just like you would with a traditional disposable vape.


How to Prevent a Disposable Vape from Tasting Burnt

Now that you understand what it means when a disposable vape tastes burnt and what you can do about it, we’ll spend the remainder of this article discussing what you can do to prevent a disposable vape from tasting burnt in the first place. Before we begin, it’s important to remember that there’s no way to prevent a disposable vape from tasting burnt when it’s out of vape juice. When your device is out of e-liquid – unless it’s a refillable vape like the Endura S1 – it’s time to replace it. Disposable vapes are the most convenient vaping devices on the market, but the cost of that convenience is that a device only lasts until it’s out of e-liquid.

Although it’s not possible to prevent a disposable vape from running out of e-liquid, the other two causes of a burnt flavor are preventable. Here’s what you can do in those cases to prevent a disposable vape from tasting burnt.
