Do you have a preferred method that doesn't induce leaking? In my opinion the best way to fill a tank is upside down so the e-liquid is not forced into the coil by the pressure created when filling the tank and when turned upright the vacuum keeps the coil from flooding. I am primarily a dripper so I don't have a lot of experience with tanks and would be happy to learn your opinion.
After successfully ignoring Google, FAQ's, the board search and leaving a undecipherable post in the wrong sub-forum don't expect an intelligent reply.

Personally, I don't much care how refilling is accomplished, so long as it doesn't often leak while doing so.

Exactly.

Topfill is nice for the lazy, but still more effort as you have to clean up the flooded juice that's pouring out the airflow of most designs.

I prefer bottom fill.

No matter how well designed something can be, there will always be people who want different.

Isn't the top fill design leak free when coupled with a juice flow control?

Obviously you have no idea of the refilling technology 4 years ago.

Bottom fill screws like this are a holdover from cost cutting by SM on the low-end offering.

This has always been an utterly crappy way to fill a tank that's been adopted by the least imaginative "designers".

At least this atty looks like it's compatible with Aqua II/SE/FX and KF4 tanks.
Rube Goldberg would get a kick out of "temperature control" devices.

+1 although a bottom screw is a fail for me - tanks like Bellus i much prefer filling through an easy to get to bottom, rather than the top...

i hate bottom screw filling. everytime i have to fill my goblin i want to punch myself in the face.
Never had a top fill however, so ive never experienced the leak and flooding issues others have.

yup, me too. Love the goblin, but now down to my last screw out of 2 tanks... thats 3 lost so far.

That bottom screw has the crazy power of disappearing from this plane of existence before it even hits the floor.
