Clearomizer is leaking juice from the bottom. Question is what is going on, or is this just a defective clearomizer?
Clearomizers can have the tendency of leaking for a couple different reasons. If it is new, it is usually because it has been overfilled, or there is liquid in the center air-tube, and it is leaking from the battery connection. You can confirm it is this by trying to take a puff, and seeing if you can get a clear, clean hit or if it’s gurgling. There is an easy solution for this, for clearomizers. Simply blow through the cartomizer through the mouthpiece, with a tissue at the end to catch the liquid coming out of the air-tube. (This may be more difficult if you are using a juice with a higher amount of vegetable glycerin because the liquid would be thicker.)
Clearomizer is STILL leaking...fluid was blown out from the airhole, but liquid is acutally coming out from the side of the clearomizer where the metal meets the glass... It’s getting everywhere, juice is being wasted, juice is getting all over everything. Should the clearomizer be thrown away?
This usually happens with the rebuildable clearomizer. What will happen is the bottom connection of the clearomizer is not completely screwed on to the body of the clearomizer. Just simply get a good grasp on the bottom, maybe with a little pair of pliers, and gently but firmly screw the body of the clearomizer on, making sure that it is completely mesh with the indentations of the screws correctly. Don’t overtighten!
There is still juice leaking, even though I tightened the clearomizer completely on, and it is still leaking juice from the side of the glass itself. What causes this?
Unfortunately the clearomizer may be too far gone. It may be because parts of the clearomizer was overtightened and subsequently cracked under pressure, it might be because the clearomizer became too hot from constant repetitive vaping, or it might even be from shipping, falling, or some other type of trauma. There is not much you can do at this point. These peices of equipment are inexpensive and not meant to last for a long period of time (if you get 2+ weeks out of one you did well).
You just received your cartomizer. You just filled it up, but now when you try to take a hit and fire the battery, yuo get no suction, and then all of a sudden you will get a surge and liquid will pop into your mouth! After that happened, you took a puff, and it goes from being completely clogged to giving little gurgles and you are getting little, if any vapor out of it. What’s causes this?
What happened in this case is the cartomizer was overfilled, and the excess liquid is preventing it from functioning properly. Take the cartomizer off of the battery, and take a napkin or tissue and use your pinky finger to poke into the battery connection area of the cartomizer and dab the area. You will see when you take your pinky out that there will be liquid saturating the napkin. Use a dry part of the napkin, and with your pinky repeat the process. Do this until you see no more liquid on the napkin when you try to wipe it. Also you should clean the battery connection plate/center-pin of your battery with a q-tip, to wipe off extra juice. Now simply try to inhale through the cartomizer and check to see see if you receive a clear hit, without it being connected to the battery. If there is still an obstruction, then put the napkin on the end of the cartomizer, and gently blow through the cartomizer, and repeat the cleaning process. Repeat these instructions until you can get a clean, clear hit through your cartomizer.
With proper cleaning and care of your clearomizers and cartomizers you should receive the maximum life of these uints. Please remember though that these items of equipment are inexpensive and not made for long term usage (2-4 weeks). With that said - take care of your equipment and it will take care of you......Keep On A Vaping:)
