    Leaking iClear 30s

    Ever since I have my VTR with new iclear 30s from day 1. This iclear 30s leaks on almost every moment on me from the centre 510 connection at the bottom. In one occasion it even leaked so bad and all over my side of VTR. So far I cannot figure out how to fix this leaking problem. Does anyone experience leaking from their iclear 30s? How do you fix it?

    Yeah I've got one with the exact same problem, no idea on a fix though.

    Getting quite disappointed with a lot of new gear (LMFAO with my massive 2 months of experience). EVOD's and Vivi Nova's have been rock solid, starting to think apart from exploring the re-buildables not going to bother with any alternatives as I seem to leak as much juice as I vape.

    The weird thing is this clearo vape very well but the leaking is really annoying.

    don't listen to the 3ml talk, they are OK for 1 ml which isalways between the 1 & 2 ml mark, don't overfill them [which isactually just filling them, you have to underdo it]

    i also drilled out thedrip tip hole for bigger vape and it's now less crap

    Maybe some help here??

    Be sure that your atomizer head is screwed down all the way into the connection and that the base is secure as well. Be sure that the bottom of the drip tip, that rests on the silicone grommet is making a good seal. Also, be sure not to overfill it and flood the coil. This will cause leaking into the 510 connection.

    I have the same problem with my my kanger protank, with two heads it leaks with a third it doesn't when I look at the grommets the silicon ones look like they have defects and the other one( Teflon) doesn't leak so maybe try a different head.

    Given up on the iclear 30s and 30b, good for a tank, then leaky, gurgly bs after that.
    May be time to jump on the kayfun bandwagon I think.

    I've never actually had a problem with them, I have 3/4 of them laying around and they've all had the coils replaced in them, this is the first bit of bad info I've heard back.

    Does the center post move a bit when you unscrew it?

    They are joined through the base(not very well) and if you screw them down too hard, the weak seal will give a little bit and break from the base casting. It won't unscrew much but can a tad....air gets in and voila..leaking

    Use a skirt to screw up to it once it's made contact to avoid over-tightening.
