I recently purchase two boxes (pack of 5 coils each) of the Aspire Cleito 120 coils. After using the pre-installed coil, I installed the new coil from the new pack. I recently experienced a couple of hits with a very burnt taste. I checked the coil and noticed cotton seeping up through the chimney. I checked my wife's coil and it was doing the same thing. I've never had this happen before, but would explain the bad burnt taste. Could these coils be defective and if so, do I need to return them to Aspire or the vendor I purchased from? I know these are authentic and have purchased Aspire coils through MVS, which again, have never had a problem like this before.
As a temporary fix, I removed the bad cotton with a pair of tweezers and it seems to be fine now, but if anyone has had this happen, please advise.
