Threads gone on mouth piece
I bought 6x iclear16. I used 3 of them and on 2 of those 3, the threading on the plastic mouth piece fell off.Bad glue i guess. Not ok!!

I am sure, i am not the only one with that kind of problem.Luckily i ordered some spare tips weeks ago.



Looks like the tip is made out of low quality plastic, because it was in use only for 2 weeks.

I'm not disagreeing that it may be bad glue or plastic.

But the black one looks pretty worn out possibly eaten by e-juice as some liquids degrade plastics and glues faster. Yours look pretty eaten up there for just 2 weeks

I have a few and never a problem like this. My plastic drip tips are not nearly as worn (eaten) and mine are several months old. They are a little just not as much .

It could be also as kungfu77 said luck of the draw(bad batch)

What flavor juice were you using ?

I see buy your reviews you might be using peach witch is a flavor known to crack plastic tanks and probably drip tips to.

Here is a list of juices causing problems: Juices no to crack tanks and plastic click here


Have you dropped them although it doesn't appear dropped. I have loosened thread ring in this fashion on certain clearos or snapped them at threads.

That just great. All the juices i like, are acid. lol Strawberry, peach, apple, cherry... I like fruity tastes :)

I didnt dropped the clearo and i was using the V2 peach flavor in that tank mostly. I am also using protank and protank mini so there should be no problem with cracking. Will post some info about the other iclear16 with cherry and also cobra plastic tank, which had also been tortured with peach for the last week. Dat plastic lol


btw Green tip is brand new!

No more plastic tips for me! I am gonna sell remaining iclear16s.

I think i am gonna get the glass tank for clone cobra (link?), because its a very good genesis rba for less than 10 eur.

What about rsst Polypropylene tank? It should be ok, right?

Yes the Polypropylene (frosted ones) should be fine also.

Glad I could help you figure it out before wasting more items;)

Hi, i use iclear16 for "at work"... i have had to replace a couple of drip tips due to the thread coming off, so i purchased some of these

SKU 1424415

SKU 1428902

ive just checked a few iclear 16 which ive actually had dekang/liqua strawberry in for a couple of weeks, and they appear in good order. also a iclear 16 with hangsen juicy peach seems to be holding up fine.none seem to be "eaten" in any way at this point. im just posting this info as my own personal experience with the iclear 16 :)

FOUND ANOTHER ICLEAR lol... liqua berry mix seems ok as well at the minute.. been in there around a week..time will tell :)

I guess the V2 peach is really acid. I checked the other iclear16 with Liqua cherry taste in it and i cant see any damage to the mouth piece after 2 weeks. I am vaping mostly Liqua and the V2 peach, because its goood :)

btw I dont see any damage on the plastic tank of cobra atty, but i can smell the peach after cold wash. Gonna wash it out with hot water now and rebuild.

I don't think it's the acid flavours that's caused it as I received a pack of 5 with my itaste V3 and have used 2 so far and both have had the same problen of the threads coming away and I only use a mix of liqua coffee(75%)and liqua vanilla (25%) in them, luckely I have quite a few spare CE4's so have pinched the drip tips off a couple :)

This problem is caused by over-tightening the drip tip. Over-tightening the drip tip can also lead eventually to the atty becoming slightly loose due to friction when undoing an over-tightened drip tip thus causing leaks.
