Why this keeps leaking?
On first filling it's good. Second filling , flood from the airflow ring after some time. This is #$it.

I tried washing and cleaning everything before refill but same thing. When I put on a new coil it's good for a one tank. The tank after , here we go again. The beautiful sticky juice on your clothes and fingers. How they can even sell this and why is this so highly rated here?

Are you sure you're not overfilling it or that something isn't loosening when you refill?

Could those coils be borked?

leaking usually happens on the topfill tanks ,to stop it i find a small puff of air befor drawing on them stops it, yours is bottom fill ,used them for months and not had airflow leaks from them, id check the seals and rebuild it

If it works the first time, then may be you are unscrewing the coil when opening to fill? Perhaps try tightening the coil when you refill. Sometimes the chimney is too tight a fit in the coil.

Also, which coils are you using?

I think I read somewhere that puffing in could help but that actually made it worse. Don't think I overfill it because I fill it up the line on the chimney or whatever is it called.

It happens every time I do a refill. I don't touch the coil , I just put it out with the base and let it dry a little . Then I fill the tank and screw everything together. After some time leaking starts. I never let it sit so I don't know but it happens when vaping.

I'm using premade occ coils 1.2 ohms,authentic.

About the airflow, I can't close it fully . I don't see a setting of the ring where it's closed fully? Also, what difference can that make since I have to unscrew the base with the airflow control ring to fill it?

The o ring on the top of the coil is not right ( crooked, cut, ect. ). Examine the o ring. The tank is assembled wrong. The steel tube in the middle of the tank is not seated in the top o ring of the coil. Disassemble the tank, reassemble correctly. Lube all o rings, including coil o rings. Good luck

Sorry mate I thought it was a top fill tank my bad,

In that case I'd say you are getting air in there which would say like others have that a seal isn't seating right or maybe you just aren't tightening it up quite enough, the work on a pressure system to stop the juice escaping, once you tighten it up and flip it over it creates a sort of vacuum, had you been using an rba in it it would most likely be not enough cotton or cotton fouling/sitting over the airflow holes,

Do a full strip down, wash the seals and tank parts and dry them all 100%, re-assemble it and you'll probably find that fixes it, it could be as simple as juice trapped between a seal and tank causing it. hth.

My clicks. I will try cleaning once again.

It seems that liquid comes between the glass and the metal part that glass goes over.

I don't know. This is my first time trying vaping and I'm really disappointed. Is there something more suitable for MTL that doesn't leak? I'm even ready to rebuild.
