    Hello!

    New to the forum, have been vaping for about 7 months now and I constantly run into the same problem. Basically same setup but different juices (same pg/vg) one juice doesn't wick and the other works perfectly fine. And this keeps happening all the time. I'll try then different tanks, different coils, more wick less wick, doesn't help, constant dry hits. Has anyone have experienced this?

    Bummer dude. The only reason why 1 juice behaves differently than another is the pg/vg blend. Check your bottles and make sure they are the same.
    What tank and coils are you using?

    I currently have 6 different tanks, 2 subomh, 2 rdtas, 2 rdas. Mostly been using limtless plus rdta. Recently bought 7 different 10ml juice bottles from uk online store. Tried all of them on peerless rda with the same coils and wick, only 3 of them was wicking, I got dry hits from the rest, all of them had 70/30 or 60/40 pg/vg blend.

    What are you using for wicking and how are you wicking them? What coil setup/air flow are you using and what wattage are you hitting them with? Are you a chain vaping?

    Cotton bacon and UD for wicking. UD cotton comes in thin layers, so I just cut off piece and try to roll between my palms or fingers like a joint, so it has this cylindrical shape. I do differently with cotton bacon , I like to spread out a piece of cotton and then roll it. I could try a cotton that comes in thicker pads so I don't have to roll it maybe that's the problem. Also is it better to spread out ends or leave them in cylindrical shape? Do you tend to use more or less cotton for low build or is it same.

    I just make the coils not the wire, I have tried a bunch of different types of coils, aliens, claptons, flaptons, juggernauts, always dual coil setup, always 100+ watts as they are low builds .08-.20. Also vaping on snowwolf 200w plus mod with high drain batteries.

    Airflow normally fully open, hitting the bottom of the coils.

    No, I don't chain vape. Those burnt hits occur straight away with the first vape.

    Would it be possible that these juices could be diluted or relabeled not genuine?

    Welcome to VU. I'll let others advise you, I don't vape at the watts you are using.

    Have you tried vaping at lower watts? It's quite possible that the juice is fine, you're just burning it faster than the cotton can re-saturate.
