Have you ever had a leaking vape tank? Although it doesn’t do much harm as you just need to wipe it clean, it is one of those annoyances that amplifies each time it occurs.
Fortunately, there are ways to ensure that your tank is leak-free. Here are a few tips.
1. Check if you filled up your tank properly
One of the most common causes of a leaking vape tank is the way you fill it with e-juice. All tank-style atomizers have a central tube that extends from the coil to the mouthpiece. If you accidentally put your e-juice in there, you’ll certainly have problems with leaking.
2. Don’t overfill your tank
Overfilling your tank is also one of the reasons why you may experience a leaking vape tank. Remember that there is no need to overfill your tank. Leaving your tank with a small space creates a vacuum that helps hold the e-juice in the correct chamber.
3. Tighten everything up
Check if all the various components of your e-cigarette are tightly screwed in, especially the gaps where the coil meets the atomizer and where the atomizer meets the tank. Remember to avoid cross threading as this creates an imperfect seal.
4. Leave the tank standing up
When you are not using your e-cigarette, do not leave it in a horizontal position. It doesn’t matter whether the tank is full or not, some e-juice can escape from the “juice holes”. It is also worth closing the airflow valve (if your tank has one). This can reduce the risk of leaking during periods of non use.
5. Increase your Power Setting
Another reason why you experience leaking is the so-called 'flooding'. Flooding happens when too much juice gets pulled into the coil to vaporise. The simplest way to avoid this is to increase the power setting. This will help vaporise more e-juice per puff. You can also remedy a flooded coil by removing it, give it a good wipe off, then blow down through it whilst holding the coil in a bit of tissue to absorb any excess liquid that is blown through.
