Change strains to see if the problem persists.
That's about all I get out of a capsule.
Drier bud is actually better in terms of vapor production. The extra quantity in an uncapped bowl might get you a couple extra decent hits but the change in taste you're experiencing doesn't seem remarkable to me.
Clean the capsule and unit thoroughly , using some rubbing alcohol. Try a different method of smoking/vaping and see if the bad taste is in the bud. You can moisten a paper towel and put in a jar with you herb and it will rehydrate just make sure you dont over hydrate it.
I don't think its the POTV itself.. I just got one recently as well and cannot say I've had a similar experience.. I use only the caps and have pulled the screens out of the gaskets. I did soak/clean all my caps before first use and did a few burnoff runs before loading it for the first time.. call me crazy but I also ran empty caps through in the burnoffs..
Curious, are you using any other vapes to compare the flavor to?
My guess is you are finishing it faster than you are used to due to it being dry. Some strains taste better\worse than others as they get to the very end.
