Temporary solution to leaking problem
If, like me, you’ve been tearing you hair out trying to solve a leaking problem then look to the positive post insulator. On my tank the gap between the post and the insulator was at least 1mm. I have temporarily used the insulator from the V1 kit but I suspect it will need replacing fairly soon.

Have fun. :)

You can put an tiny 5mm o-ring between the insulator and the base to stop any leaks from the 510 pin.

It wasn't leaking from the 510 pin, it was leaking from the positive post through, and out of, the air intake.

Heh, it was because an o-ring broke from the chamber bottom (one of my mods) and that's why it leaked. It shouldn't leak otherwise.

No worries, it's not an Augvape product :)

I received mine yesterday, doesn't leak at all. And I gotta admit: for a tank it's pretty damn great. I had hoped the flavor would be a bit closer to my small squonking RDAs, but it's the best tank I have tried.

For me it was the Pico after I broke the stem on one, that one never made a full recovery...

hehe, maybe you need a re admission, can't fault the two i have, i think they're a notch better than the pocket after putting a 1 ohm coil in them, they were at 1.4 ish before it made a hell of a difference somehow, but the pocket gives a more earthier ? flavour compared to the pico and nectar, swings and roundabouts lol

The Pocket deck is a lot easier to work with and the quality overall is much better. That Pico plastic chamber isn't dimensionally stable and consistent. I could torque that and have the threads slip - it wasn't confidence inspiring - and if you stuffed something up it meant a complete rebuild, which could easily happen. You have to rebuild the Pocket too, but there are just less additive problems, and it's a less likely occurrence.

With the plug I put in for the airflow, the dvarw is about the same with the 1mm insert. The dvarw is marginally better for flavour though.
