Anyone know how to wick this without leaks?
I really want to like this tank but I've tried several different wicking methods and it always results in leaking to some degree. On the official Facebook page people have a lot of suggestions, tried them all and still leaks. I've actually started to use it like a dripper and only open the juice flow when i'm vaping it and then close it otherwise, even this still results in a small amount of leaking. When i take the cap off to look at the deck I can see it's flooded. I'm starting to think it is a design flaw because I've have a few other gravity fed tanks that never leak.

Could be the VG % ratio in your e-liquid is too low, could be you're not using enough cotton causing either a gap on the deck or not fluffed upwards enough to plug the two drip holes, could be bad o-rings. Does it leak with the juice holes only opened halfway?

I figured out what I did wrong. The orings that secure the deck to the rest of the tank are quite loose(Mentioned in every youtuber review). So I found some other orings from another rta that gave a much more secure fit but somehow caused the leaking. When I swapped back to the original orings the leaking mostly stopped, still happens a bit if you dont get the wicking just right. Kind of reminds of the og berserker mini in that sense. Overall a disappointing product from BP Mods and not one I could recommend
