    Hi guys, hoping you may be able to shed some light - I have 2 tanks on rotation, nautilus mini and triton mini. I've had never ending issues with the triton coils .... now I do know how to prime and clean my gear etc. I keep getting a burnt chemical taste with the triton coils. If i manage to get one that tastes ok it only lasts me 2 days max. I don't go over 12 watts.
    No problems with my nautilus mini however I used a standard nautilus coil in the triton mini tank and burnt chemical taste. It's driving me nuts and I'm ready to chuck out all the coils but now I'm thinking the tank is crap too.
    Atm I'm just using my Nautilus Mini tank and will wait on my Vika Fasttech clone to arrive.

    Hi Jaz, I bought the triton mini tank and the exact same thing happened to me - after two days of mucking around with the stupid thing I piffed it to @Noe and he likes it and doesn't have the trouble with it.
    I know I wasn't doing anything wrong and was running the Mod at the correct watts - so I have no idea :scratch:
    All I know it that it was a waste of cash and I will never recommend them to anyone based on my experience.
    Kinda feel relieved the same thing happened to you (sorry) as it cements my opinion of the thing.

    Hi Jaz, I was interested in getting the Triton mini a few months ago but after reading several reviews and mostly complaints about "Odd" taste from the coils I gave it a miss. A lot of people were getting bad coils straight out of the box. Only a couple out of 5 were good and the ones that were good lasted them only a few days before going bad. I had read that it's not recommended to use high VG with those coils as the juice holes are small.
    Can only suggest try the other coils and let it soak for a good 15 mins or you can try unflavored to see if he chemical taste goes away.

    Let wait for the expert to comment :)
    @Noe :)

    I went through a box of coils in two days and dont vape high VG - my all day vape is nearly unflavoured and always let tanks sit with fresh coils for at least 30 mins.
    also tried the other coils ( forget which ones)
    Its funny because damn Noe really liked it - so weird :rolleyes:

    oops read it all wrong with the coils lol. Okay when I try mine I will give honest opinion of course. But its a sub ohm I am trying again and probably will not like it and go back to my vape pen but I still try now and then to upgrade lol. I like the idea of a mod but if its like the picco I gave away my vape pen will win out.

    Stainless steel girl here clapton and kathal coils too complex for my needs. I will be using those with the mini.

    I think the problem with the Triton Mini coils is with anyone using more than 40% VG in them.
    The wick holes are not designed for thicker ejuice & that taste is likely coming from the silicone orings.
    Since I use only 40% VG at most in my juices, I think that is why I was getting a reasonable vape from the Mini Triton. It's not my favorite tank but I have had many that were worse.
