    You might need some thicker higher VG juice. If the liquid is too thin it can more easily flood the coil.

    Ha, not that then.

    Try a new coil but don't prime it, like Saph suggested. maybe when it gets screwed together it pressurises the tank or something.

    If you clear the tank by flicking the flooded liquid out then it should stay good for a while.

    Yes, I wouldn't rule out a bad batch of coils, but buying more and having the same same problem would be miserable. Is it a very tight draw, or quite loose with lots of vapour?

    when its working properly its a nice loose direct lung draw with plenty of vapour. Confuses me how it goes from great to terrible so fast lol

    The problem with that tank is it has a "plunger style" coil system, which can cause excess pressure when refilling. That pressure has to go somewhere so it forces juice into the coil over time.
    If you want a similar style tank, that has top airflow but doesn't have plunger style coils, the RoFVape Witcher tank may be an option for you. It is a top fill tank but doesn't pull the coil out with the top cap when you refill, I have this tank & it does not leak or flood.
