    im completely stumped here.

    I have the sxk Exocet (yes stop judging the clone but the authentics are harder to find than a unicorn fart in a hurricane) and a few days ago the Flavour just vanished. VANISHED.

    I thought time to rewick. I rewicked, still no Flavour.

    I changed the coil. No Flavour.

    Raised the coil. Dropped the coil. Put a Clapton. Put an alien. Used round wire. Ni80. Kanthal. Put a new alien. NOTHING.

    There’s wicking bubbles but just no Flavour.

    It used to be be fine. Put coil. Put cotton. Put juice. Vape. Flavour.

    Now nothing.

    Clever people welcome to give their insights please.

    Silly question but I'm guessing you tried different juices as well?

    Something possibly wrong with the 510 connection, not getting enough power to the RBA?

    Any way to test the Exocet on another mod perhaps.

    Couldn’t test in another mod as the airflow was blocked.

    Swapped out juices and put a different battery but still kak

    Could it possibly be the sub standard materials used in the sxk “breaking down” for want of a better phrase over time and starting to affect the taste?

    The device breaking down was what I was thinking. Not sure if the clones use actual Peak or some fong kong plastic.

    Right:

    Same bridge and coil and cotton and juice. New Boro.

    Letting it wick a bit then I’ll give it go.

    So you think it’s the plastic in the Boro being the problem maybe?

    today is still going strong and no lack of flavour.

    still trying to get my head around how a boro could affect the taste so much but have ended on the plastic "breaking down" and doing some funky chemical nastiness to my juice.
