Why
It leaks out at each refilling.

I fill it out of the box now, when you close up the glass on the boro, it ejects some drops on my hand ...from the chimney. Then - in the mod when starting vaping on it - some further drops,
wipe it off, then all is good!

What do I do wrong?

Ohh, I'm not using the crown on it but I thought it was irrelevant.

The crown is certainly irrelevant. Neither of my SXK Mobb Minis are leaky. Wicking maybe?

Definitely smth to do. Maybe the wick was trimmed too much. The thing, that after all these, it's totally dry for the whole tank. =)

After more than 2 weeks it looks like this



I'll try to rewick it a tad longer.

I let the tails hang out of the bridge by a few millimeters.

With the old Taifuns I had an aversion seeing the wicks hanging out, so learned to "nest" wicking them. Most of times it worked, sometimes it didn't. It must come from that.
(actually there was a drop kit for them with what you just couldn't let the wicks out otherwise you had some air-lock.)


But better be safe than sorry.
