You must have got a dud. Did you try to fix it?

I got my second one but it only came with the base of the CLR adapter. :(

I snapped the center pin when reassembling it after a wash so it will end up as spare parts now. Damn it. I like it enough to buy another...

*grumble*

I might do that, it would make coiling this one easier.

I have modded this so I can lock the deck and base together, loosely, on the ohm meter. I enlarged one of the airholes to 2.5mm, one that I don't use, so I can insert a screwdriver through to the airhole on the deck pin. It makes building a lot easier now.

The same hole is useful now when taking the tank off. I can lever the thing off with a screwdriver while gripping the tank.

@wuwei.ap (or anyone)

I received two of these and have tried two builds on one of them. Every time it leaks like a sieve through the AFC. The problem seems to be too much juice coming through the "juice" holes, because once the level is below them it stops. I've even tried placing a 2mm diameter section of silica wick on top along with the cotton to tighten it up - similar to the flavor wick on Kanger coils and it still leaks. As far as I can tell it isn't leaking anywhere else. I'd be interested in hearing how others are faring with the Pico, wicking methods or tips. I'd really like to get these to work because they're very good MTL tanks.

On a side note, one of mine came with the CLR adaptor and the other didn't. I guess that option is hit or miss.

It's basically a taifun, so: Taifun manual. Still, if it leaks on you, I 'd check the O-ring on top of the chimney.

Or if the chimney is really screwed down straight and tightly. I had a leaky Pico because of that once. [that sounded strange]. The chimney was a bit of kilter and too much liquid was leaking into the chamber.

Thanks Blauw, I will try another o-ring on the chimney. I bought spares for replacement as wuwei.ap did for his. I wished the Pico had as much options for customization as the Talifun. All in all I really like the Pico size and draw, but this is the first RTA giving me major leak issues and it sure has a lot of plastic :P

Moos, that's EXACTLY the issue I'm having and may be the cause. I've been tightening the coil chamber and chimney pretty tight as to avoid any leakage into the base. I may give this a try as well.

Hope you get it fixed, fucitol. I think the Pico is a great variation on the taifun-GT. Same very good flavour-vape in an itty-biity atty.
