    If at first you don't succeed..

    Try again!

    I attempted to start vaping at the end of last year sometime but I had a few problems getting up and running and then all sorts went wrong. I was in hospital, had heaps of stress and then Christmas, New Year etc. I was fully back on the smokes and my vape gear had been hidden in the cupboard. Well I am feeling more human again so I decided I'd make a proper effort this time because this time I really WANT to quit the smokes. I've now been 6 days without a smoke and have been happily vaping without even being tempted to pick up the stinkies.

    So if anyone else is struggling, don't think you've failed, just try again

    I got a quick question to ask, I use evods but they leak terribly. Before I vape each time I have to dry the battery and the inside connection bit of the evod. Is there something I can do to stop this? Is it because I use 100% vg?

    Welcome back.

    Are you sure the pin of the evod is connecting properly. Every time this happens to me I need to pull the post slightly on the battery. Juice collects in the tiny gap.

    The same thing can happen if the clearo sits a bit crooked.

    My evods seem to only leak when the tank gets low, I tend to top them up when they get down to 1/3 - 1/4 full. If they do leak through the day I just turn them upside down and give them a few quick flicks, sprays out the excess juice and clears it up. Can be a little messy though, maybe hold a tissue over the end?

    Common leaking problem with these and the T3S and the Mt3's

    There are a couple of suggestions. What worked for me was putting a couple of extra flavour wicks over the coil.

    see here: How to prevent Kanger T3 and eVod gurgling and leaking

    if it gets too tight to draw, remove a wick or two...

    Good on you kitkat.

    If clearos are your thing, try a different type eg protank and a number of others out there. They're cheap and you may find something else that works better for you
