Why is my vape leaking?

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)

Still having problems?

If you continue to have leaking issues, come to one of our six Melbourne vape shops and we'll try to get to the bottom of it.
