    Heat and clearos leaking/gurgling?

    Hi everyone,

    40 degrees here today, and I've had 2 T3S's gurgling and leaking into the connector. is this a common thing in the heat?

    could the heat be giving a pressure differential forcing liquid out?

    Certainly is my experience. Especially getting into a really hot car.

    Mine too, with the aspires. Thought maybe the juice was thinning a little as the temperature rose.

    43C in Adelaide today, I start work @ 4:30pm and have to use my car for my breaks if I want to vape. I've learnt to not leave my gear in the car, way too hot

    I read somewhere on another thread that juice thins out as it gets warmer, so I guess that the way to go with re-filling - say in the cool of the morning, would be to put a little less in, give the juice room to expand and that would hopefully reduce the floods and juice in the mouth episodes??

    yeah mathy, I only ever fill the T3S's up half way any way.... I could make a thicker juice though with more VG

    Yeah, juice thinning, but also pressure changes will cause leaking too. As the air inside the tank heats up it expands and pushes the juice out.
