    I am very new to vaping and bought a Eleaf iCare 140.

    I didn't put any juice into the vape

    I tried to turn it on and hold the button (without putting it in my mouth) for a few seconds and I saw smoke come out. The pen now REEKS of smoke, will this smell go away?

    Without juice you basically dry fired and smoked your coil/wick. You have another coil head to put in it ? Next time dont fire wo juice in it

    I think you may have fried the coil.

    Sometimes the taste will go away or at least get better but you are better off putting a new coil in your tank.

    What kind of tank do you have?

    Oh Damn. You do mean the tank / coil had smoke coming out and not the mod right?

    Replace the coil. It should go away with a new coil.

    Take out the old one and before you install the new one prime the coil with eliquid. Just a few drops on the head.
    After you fill it with juice take a few puffs without firing the pen and let it sit for a few minutes.
    After that, try it again.

    You can juice it up and try it. However it will probably taste like shit. You can always pop a new coil in if it indeed tastes nasty and burnt

    Just a dry fire.. you will have to change the coil because you burnt it. The mod itself is still good to go.
