Vaping Hacks: How To Keep A Vape Tank From Leaking

Posted by Customer Service

In the world of vaping, few things are more of a bummer than dealing with a leaky vape tank when you’re ready to try a new juice. Vape tanks can even begin to leak even if you’ve had an e-juice in there for a while. Not only is it maddening if all your juice leaks out, it’s also a huge pain if e-liquid gets onto something in your purse or pocket. Luckily, there are a few vaping hacks to help keep a vape tank from leaking. These simple tricks will preserve your e-juice —and your sanity— in the long run.

Fill Your Tank Carefully

The first suggestion we have is a preventive measure that can help avert some common causes of leaky vape tanks. It’s crucial to make sure you take your time when filling a vape tank. Pay close attention to what you’re doing because it’s possible to accidentally squirt e-juice into the tank’s chimney, which is where your airflow comes through. Even a small bit of e-liquid in the chimney of a vape tank can lead to a leak, or worse yet, spitback.

Don’t Set Your Tank On Its Side

This is another precaution you can take to keep a vape take from leaking even before it starts. Sometimes it can be tempting to mindlessly set down your vape mod, or a tank you just filled, sideways and then get distracted by something else. One you come back, there may be a pool of e-juice right beneath where you left your tank. To prevent this type of leak (which can loosen the seals on a tank, always set your vape tank or mod upright when you’re not using or filling it. 

Make Sure The Tank’s Seals And O-Rings Are Snug

If you’ve taken the aforementioned precautions, but you’re still unable to keep your tank from leaking, it’s time to check out the tank to make sure all the seals are lined up and tightened and that the O-rings and tank exterior are not damaged. A loose joint can make for some quick e-liquid leaks that can affect how airtight your tank is. In addition, it’s a good practice to seal the airflow when your tank is not in use for this same reason and to prevent the tank from flooding. 

Clean the Vape Tank

When all else fails, thoroughly wash and dry your vape tank to remove any gunk in the air intake or juice chamber that may cause e-liquid to back up and leak out.

These easy steps can be very helpful if you’re worried about struggling with a leaky tank.
