I'm new to vaping, got my first mod and atomizer a week ago. The mod is sigelei j80. The atomizer is Geek Vape - Eagle Tank. The problem is when I hit the fire button and take a drag, I start getting some snap crackle pop. I figure a little crackling is normal. However the pops scare me. I probably took no more than 20 drags total when I first got it. Then I stopped vaping because I got a really sore throat, but it turns out it's probably just allergies, I've had post nasal drip all week, and a sore throat and cough all week. Today, I tried vaping again, there was a huge and scary pop, it was like a fire cracker. The moment I removed it from my mouth, about an 8th of a second after I let off the fire button, I got a huge pop, like a fire cracker. The tank is still in one piece, I wasn't injured, I can't say for sure that it would have injured me, but now I am scared of this thing. There was a little bit of juice that came out of the bottom (probably through the air vents) after the pop. I am vaping at 40 to 45 watts, the Eagle tank has the top and bottom air flow wide open, and the juice flow wide open. The pre-wicked coil & deck I am using says for 40 - 70 watts. The juice I am using is Naked 100, Lava (30/70 pg/vg) I'm wondering what the problem is. Also, I let the tank sit for 7 days without use, while about 2ml of e-liquid was in there. Is it possible the big fire cracker pop was the result of water build up over the past week of not being used? Oh, and 3 more details: 1. Even when I hold the fire button for a couple of seconds, and hold it away from my face, it does the snap crackle pop thing with what appears to be a drop of juice shooting out of the dropper (I believe this is called spit back) 2. I would try temperature mode, but I found out after I bought this mod, that it is notorious for not having a proper temp control and will burn a dry wick in half (according to a couple of videos I've seen) 3. When I pre-soaked the wick, I added a lot of juice, and onto the coils as well. Could this all be the result of a flooded tank?
