Yeah, I personally steer clear of using that term “robot fart” because I have yet to smell a robot fart. But for me, there is a distinctive “plastic-y” smell that most electronics smell like when newly unboxed. For me it is usually no biggie, as the smell dissipates quickly. Unfortunately, when it seeps into the taste it can make vaping less enjoyable. Sometimes, it is also indicative of a non isolated air path. I do NOT think this is the issue here, I think it is just factory smells lingering. It doesn’t smell stronger when heated and when I close off the air holes, I am unable to take a draw. These are both good signs that it is an isolated air path and isn’t a danger, just a nuisance. I say, go ahead and let it rip (that’s a fart joke AND a play on the company name - two for one!) @Healthy Rips may want to chime in to reassure any doubters.
