    Kanger ProTank3 Insane Leaking

    Hey guys,

    I purchased a Kanger ProTank 3 from VapingCobra (FANTASTIC service!) and it arrived 2 days ago. I have only been pursuing vaping for a week now, and after using a basic CE4 for that week, I was terribly excited to use my ProTank3 given some of the great things people had to say about it, but I have had NOTHING but leaks and gurgling. On to my third coil, and they begin to leak typically within 2-3 sessions vaping ~1ml at a time. Pretty frustrated at this point, my CE4 absolutely ruined this thing. Has anyone got any ideas on what might be happening here or how I could fix it?

    Thank you all in advance for any help!

    EDIT: I should clarify, I also picked up a Phoenix RBA at the same time, and am legitimately tempted to pick up a stack of wire, wick, and just go straight to dripping into it rather than use a Clearo at this point.

    Take the little silicon grommet off the post and turn it upside down, usually fixes leaks on them.

    I cleaned up the two coils I have, did this, tried again, and after about a minute, straight back to flooding and gurgling. Pretty dissapointing

    Ive never had a prob with the pt3. Either your device post is too high, your missing a grommit in the tank or youve copped a faulty set of coils that arent sealing properly(happened to me, had to replace the pack).

    Wow, that is really unfortunate. I had a similar problem with a couple of iclear 30's I ordered from the states(but he was fantastic to offer and provide a refund them on return). I have 3 protanks 3's on rotation with different juices and only ever run into a problem with 1 of the coils not wicking and giving off the usual nasty burnt taste.

    Do you have an option for return/refund?
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java the thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

    Hey mate, I had the same issue with one of my Protank's until I put another rubber grommet upside down on top of the other one.

    This link explains it better with pics.

    Yep, the above fix is a miracle :-). I got my dusty Evods going using this method too. Somebody should send it to the manufacturer. If I was not patient by nature leaking clearos would have put me off vaping when I first started...
