    New Vision Clearomizers LEAK! Alternative?

    Hi all,

    I've always used and used to love Vision Clearomizers. I was using the original ones that looked like this



    Then all of a sudden around the start of the year (late 2012/early 2013?) I ordered some new cartridges and it seemed they'd been upgraded and changed so that you can detach more parts/unscrew the bottom section of the cartridge. These ones look like this:



    Now I never had any problem with the original ones, they worked fine for me, and I have no idea what benefit the extra detachable part is - I've never needed it, and I've never used it - I have no idea why it was added (if it aint broke, dont fix it) but I just accepted it and continued to use it.

    The problem is they LEAK! 6/6 cartridges I've used so far have leaked. Most of them the plastic barrel detaches from the silver base bit and it just falls apart so the liquid goes everywhere. Literally every one has leaked after enough time. Why did they 'upgrade' it to be worse? Has anyone else experienced this?

    So my question is - are there any alternatives or is there any way i can buy the original ones that dont leak?

    Any help or advice would be much appreciated

    Get some evod clearo's they're 100x better
    In the mean time you can take off the casing and tighten the detachable coil head as tight as you can get it.

    The idea of the detachable atomiser is that you can buy replacement atomisers cheaply. So you don't have to chuck out the whole clearo when they die, you simply replace the atomiser, which is a lot more economical.

    Those stardusts, the old and the new, are total rubbish for flavour and vapour. And pretty much all clearomisers have replaceable atomisers now as that's what people want. It's better for the wallet and better for the planet.

    You quickly become used to not screwing off the outside part and spilling juice everywhere, it just becomes automatic.

    Like T7x said, ditch them and get some Evods and their replacement atomisers....or better still, a Mini Protank if you want to actually taste the juice you are vaping and not the plastic clearo.

    Hey guys thanks so much for the responses - much appreciated. Will definitely try the EVOD and the Mini Protank - they are exactly the type of alternatives I'd hope people point out! So they both are comptaible with the eGo-T/twist/etc battery right? The Mini Protank looks very slick!

    Yeah I can understand the reasoning but when the entire cart is ~$2, personally I'd rather a cart that doesnt leak, than one that breaks down really quickly and you have to replace parts. For me the less fiddling the better. If they focused on quality rather than how many detachable parts it had I think it'd work out to be more economical anyway!

    Ahh I've only done that twice then I learnt not to do it again. But that wasnt the problem with mine. with mine the actual plastic tube became detached from the metal section entirely. Then once that happened i could push them back together, but they would then always leak through that point. I carry my ecigs in my pocket when I go out - I take really good care of them but they might get a bit of pressure in my pocket so maybe it becomes lose. This never happened with the original ones.

    I'm going to try out both. thanks everyone again for your help

    if it's leaking from the bottom, you might want to try a trick i use - they often leak because the tank is not fitted nicely (they're press-fit).

    So you have to press down evenly on the top of the tank - i use a paddle pop stick to press it on as it's quite hard on the fingers. remove the drip tip first and press down evenly - so that the the atty head is centred.

    Guys,
    I have a couple of the Mini nova 2.0's Vision Vivi Nova cartomizer - [2013 NEW] Vision STV 2ml Mini Nova Tank Clearomizer

    and bought quite a few of the screw in bottom attachments (with the wick). Of the 4 I bought i only have one left that works properly.
    When they work they are great. Are there any other Clearos I can purchase that will fit the bottoms that I already have? Or would I be better off just buying all new clearos?

    Hope this makes sense.

    Thanks,

    Jorden
