When I use the e-cigarette it tastes bad, burnt, like plastic or like metal. How can I fix this?

If you are getting a burnt or metallic taste, this is caused by engaging the atomizer with the blank cartridge on before replacing it or by engaging it with a dry/used cartridge.  This can be resolved easily by removing the atomizer from the battery and cartridge and rinsing it under lukewarm water.  Then let the atomizer air dry completely for a few hours or overnight.  The drying process can sometimes take longer and if the atomizer is still wet, you can give it a brisk blow and let air dry completely until it functions.

This can also be useful if you are using multiple flavors and want to ensure you are getting the most flavor from a new different flavored cartridge!

Please note this should only be done if you are experiencing issues or other maintenance and troubleshooting steps were not enough.
