Why is my vape leaking?

Vapes don’t usually leak for no reason, there’s typically an external factor causing it. Some of those factors are:

  • The coil is too old (change every 1-2 weeks)
  • The coil isn’t installed correctly (check your manual and try reinstalling)
  • The tank has been tightened too much (over-tightening can warp o-rings that seal the tank)
  • Tank left in the sun or a hot car (heat causes juice to thin out and pass through the wick)
  • E-juice VG/PG ratio is too thin (try a juice with a higher VG percentage)
  • Wattage setting is too low (this can cause the juice to pool in the coil and leak because it isn’t being vaporized efficiently)
