    Seepage...?

    I love this tank to death, but wicking this thing is starting to drive me nuts! Finally thought I got it right, then it leaks on me this morning (I've since realised that was my fault) and now it's got some seeping, which for whatever reason it's always seemed prone to... thoughts anyone?

    Running a 6 wrap alien coil, 26g stainless cores with 32g kanthal wrap. ohming out at 0.2, vaping at 45-50w.

    Pictures maybe a little bit potato quality wise, sorry in advance

    I find I pack it just a little tighter than usual, seems to work okay. I don't know what the hell rip was thinking, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone saying his wicking method worked for them, dry hit city...

    I actually don't mind it that much, the only dramas I have are the seeping and that top airflow that basically does nothing for flavour and sounds like a hurricane unless it's less than 1/4 open

    Cheers emu!

    Good info, as I said up top I know why it leaked, and all of the prior leakages I had with it were just from lack of knowledge. This time round, the culprit was the juice port being ever so slightly open when I filled up, didn't notice until after I filled. I was kind of hoping it wouldn't do it, but like you say it happens to all of us

    My drama is that dirty seeping from the cotton *shudders*

    Looking good, nice coil!

    It's still one of my favourite tanks bar it's small issues, I find as long as you close the juice ports when not in use it stops it's drooling pretty quick. I'd nearly even take it over some of my RDA's, especially with the juice extender, seeing as I chew through the stuff pretty quick

    Awesome stuff, I make my own generally, when I used to smoke I rolled cigarettes more often than not, I like to keep my hands busy

    And that's the only thing with the juice extender - it looks absolutely mammoth on top of any mod I've tried it on
