How to Fix a Burnt Elf Bar

If you’re a fan of disposable vapes, you know how frustrating it can be when your elf bar tastes burnt. You might think that your device is done for, and you have to throw it away. But don’t despair, there might be a way to fix it and enjoy some more puffs.

In this article, I’ll show you some tips and tricks on how to fix a burnt elf bar, inspired by the guitar style of Robert Johnson, the king of the Delta blues. Robert Johnson was known for his complex and expressive playing, combining driving rhythms, melodic fills, and chromatic movements. He also used different tunings and techniques to create a rich and varied sound.

So, how can we apply his style to fixing a burnt elf bar? Well, let’s start with the basics.

Identify the Problem

The first thing you need to do is to figure out what’s causing the burnt taste. There are three main reasons why your elf bar might taste burnt:

  • Not enough liquid: This is the most common reason. If your elf bar is running low on e-liquid, there might not be enough liquid reaching the coil, which heats up the liquid and produces vapor. When the coil gets dry, it burns the wick, which is the material that holds the liquid. This results in a nasty burnt taste.
  • Hot coil: This can happen if you vape too much or too fast, or if you charge your device too long. When the coil gets too hot, it can also burn the wick and create a burnt taste.
  • Product defect: This is rare, but possible. Sometimes, you might get a faulty device that tastes burnt right out of the package. This could be due to a manufacturing error or a damaged coil or wick.

To identify the problem, you need to check your device carefully. Look at the mouthpiece and see if there’s any debris or dirt inside. Clean it with a tissue or a cotton swab if needed. Then, look at the liquid level and see if it’s low or empty. If it is, you might need to refill it or replace it with a new one. Finally, try vaping again and see if the taste improves. If not, you might have a hot coil or a product defect.

Fix the Problem

Now that you know what’s causing the burnt taste, you can try to fix it. Depending on the problem, there are different solutions that you can try.

Refill the Liquid

If your elf bar is low on liquid, but not empty, you can try to refill it with some e-liquid of your choice. This might sound tricky, but it’s actually quite easy if you follow these steps:

  • Remove the mouthpiece: You need to pry off the top part of your device with your fingers or a tool. Be careful not to damage the wires or the battery inside.
  • Remove the internals: You need to pull out the whole unit that contains the coil, the wick, and the liquid reservoir. Don’t detach any wires or parts.
  • Check the wick: You need to see if the wick is wet or dry. If it’s dry, you need to add some e-liquid to it until it’s saturated.
  • Refill the reservoir: You need to fill up the reservoir with e-liquid until it’s full. Don’t overfill it or spill it on other parts.
  • Reassemble the device: You need to put everything back together in reverse order. Make sure everything fits snugly and securely.

Cool Down the Coil

If your elf bar has a hot coil, you can try to cool it down by doing these things:

  • Stop vaping: You need to give your device some time to rest and cool down. Don’t take any more puffs until it’s back to normal temperature.
  • Lower the wattage: You need to adjust your device settings and lower the power output. This will reduce the heat generated by the coil and prevent burning.
  • Change the nicotine level: You need to use a lower nicotine level for your e-liquid. Higher nicotine levels tend to make the coil hotter and harsher.

Replace the Device

If your elf bar has a product defect, there’s not much you can do about it. You might have gotten a bad batch or a faulty unit that can’t be fixed. In this case, you need to replace your device with a new one.

You can contact Elf Bar’s customer service team and ask for a refund or an exchange. They might ask you for some proof of purchase or some details about your device. Be honest and polite with them and they might help you out.

Prevent Future Problems

Now that you’ve fixed your problem, you can enjoy vaping again. But how can you prevent future problems and avoid burnt hits? Here are some tips that you can follow:

  • Keep an eye on the liquid level: You need to check your device regularly and see how much liquid is left. Don’t let it run too low or empty. Refill it or replace it when needed.
  • Vape moderately: You need to vape at a reasonable pace and frequency. Don’t vape too much or too fast. Give your device some breaks and let it cool down.
  • Charge properly: You need to charge your device correctly and safely. Don’t charge it for too long or too often. Use the right charger and cable. Don’t leave it unattended or exposed to heat or moisture.
  • Store properly: You need to store your device in a cool and dry place. Don’t leave it in direct sunlight or extreme temperatures. Keep it away from children and pets.
