The drip tip socket isn't cut with a flat top inside, but conical downwards which means that there is a cavity between the drip tip and the air tube that should in theory facilitate condensation of juice running down the air tube and back to the wick.

In practive, juice accumulates in the cavity and gets sucked into the mouth, because the surface tension prevents it from flowing toward the center and down the air tube.

Drip tip connection height is pretty standard (Y U NO standardize these things?), and if you have a flat, matching surface between drip tip and air tube (as on the Kayfun), all condensation will run down the air tube in the most direct way possible.

Praise over-engineering.

Exactly ! Most of the time , actual experience is way way better than theory :D

Just buy and try it ! I'm pretty sure you will put your theory right in the garbage lol

I have one. It gurgles all the time because liquid accumulates in the drip tip bore.
