Leaking Bastard
bought this one... first week was awesome, 2nd week the leaking accelerated alot, so i ordered those new squonk bottles was hoping they would be the solution. Got those since a week now, but its still leaks like cracy from the bottom of the mod. i really dont understand from where its leaking just that every other day i have a sea of juice on my desk.

the luxotic is the biggest wismec disappointment for me by a long shot

Sorry about your bad experience. Was about to order one (and am still thinking about it) but got the Anita instead...with which, so far (about a week) I'm really pleased.

Will check other discussions and am bumping your post to see if others have had the same problem.

I feel your pain =( I was SUPER happy with this mod...until now.
I just posted this in another thread I frequently visit...

"Wismec Luxotic Update: for those thinking of purchasing, think twice, the past few days mine started leaking into the switch compartment and I think it's a leaking 510 connector that's the issue. Not taken apart completely yet, but when I do I'll post pics. A bit of Google search on the topic reveals others starting to have the same issues.
Just wanted to post this in case anyone was contemplating the purchase". =)
I'll be in and out.

Ok, found my leak today... man I'm pissed =(
Right where I'm pointing, the round pin thingy. Don't know why the hell they punched a hole for a pin right there?! Looks to me it's a pin to hold the 510 in place. When you squonk the juice spits out from around that pin. =/ Wismec garbage... when will I learn... =(

I'll be in and out.

thx for sharing the image of your findings... that must mean the electronics are constantly flooded with juice before it leaks in the battery compartment

You're welcome. =)
yes, when i pulled the cover off it was drenched in juice. So far, it still fires hard and quick with no sign of damage. I'm drying it out, then I'll try and hack a new 510 in it. If that won't happen, I'll just pull the board and install it in a donor mod. Maybe I'll make a LuxoPunto ;P
I'll be in and out.

Feeling similar. Mine started to leak after I used the VLS on it, juice was mainly dripping onto the battery via seepage from the (dodgily installed) battery strap.



I've dried it up, none seemed to get on the board but with time it would have, am using a Loop rda on it now and it's no longer leaking. I've left the cover off to keep an eye on it.

I also didn't bother to replace the battery strap as it isn't attached to anything, Wismec just tied a knot in it and used the cover plate to pin it in place, which is why mine was crooked and difficult to use.



Certainly this mod is not without faults and it seems my review pointing out some flaws with it has been accidentally overlooked by Fasttech and not approved yet after a couple of weeks.

Mine was supposed to be the blue version, which in the Fasttech photo and in multiple reviews on YouTube has some gold and other colours and looks reasonably bright, like this:



This is what I got, a dull blue with few other colours:



Looks more like the "metallic" replacement door Fasttech have listed:



It's only a cheap mod, so I guess buyer beware, and I guessed the quality would be iffy. A shame about the leaking though as I really like this mod despite the dull looking resin door.

Mine leaks with my VLS, Recurve, Morphe, and Daytona. Those are all I've only used on it lol =D
I agree it's a cheap mod and some things are to be expected...but not this major of an issue after only a couple weeks or so. =(
I got lucky, my panel is stunning. I really loved this mods function, before the leak, so much so I ordered the black mod and a spare black panel and blue panel and upgraded bottle...All have already shipped unfortunately for me LOL! =D
Oh well, one things for sure, Wismec won't be getting another dime from me every again. ...and I mean it this time! LOL! =D
I'll be in and out.

Upgraded my bottle to the silicone version and noticed a slight issue that wasn't a problem with the plastic bottle...



I have to pin it with a finger while squonking to get it to squonk properly.

Was thinking of getting the NC but if the resin is dull like my BF it's not worth the asking price,and yeah will think twice before shiny-itis takes over.

This happened to me to but that was only when that Phillips head squonk pins. Easy enough clean by taking the plate of. I've been using my dead rabbit on it before that I was using the dpro which has a huge protruding 510 but no leaks since I been using hex squonk pins just a wee tip I picked up using my black frame one. 😉
