Tornado tank leaking juice
« on: January 19, 2011, 11:54:57 AM »
I recently purchased 2 tank systems, and really like them.  I am having trouble with both of them leaking juice out of the breather holed on the attys. They seem to be ok at first, but for some unknown reason they will begin leaking out the holes and down the outside of the unit.  They usually leak out all of the juice that is in the tank.  I have tried different carts, as well as 4 different attys.  I have made certain that they click into place, and are flush with the atty also that the top on the refillable carts is securely in place, but they continue to leak.  Anyone else having this problem. Or a solution to it?

Hi I have this prob when I used a automatic battery and from sucking to hard. Use a manual battery and not suck to hard this worked for me good luck.

Another thing to watch out for is that you leave a reasonable air gap in the tank before you fit it. If it's full you could cause suction which will dump a entire tank in 2 mins.

Mine leaks badly. The technique is not to leave it standing upright. Even when its flat it leaks a little.  If you prop it up, mouth end down its fine but this lets an otherwise excellent ecig down very badly.  Given the fact its poisonous I'm none too happy about get my hands covered with e-juice :(

I think there may be a quality control issue with the tanks, attys and batteries.  Can't account for the wide discrepancy in users experience otherwise.

This is not a complicated bit of equipment after all.. The only time mine has leaked is when the cartridge has been overfilled, or I haven't seated it properly and I always stand it on end on my desk.

It's not THAT poisonous.  Were it so, no one would be around still to talk about e-cigs.  We are, after all, inhaling mls of the stuff each day.  ;)

If a tank leaks, there is something wrong and the source of the leak needs to be found.  It could be a faulty unit or 'operator error' but either way, the only time a tank will leak in any orientation is when there is something not quite right.

I'm really comforted now that I'm advised "its not that poisonous" lol.  

Will I die slowly rather than instantly?

"Very toxic in contact with skin" it says on the bottle so is it or isn't it?

On my 4th tank and 2nd burner and they have all leaked.

Its by far the best and most consistant vape but I'm genuinely worried about how much is getting on my lips and hands, not to mention the waste of liquid.

We are ALL dieing slowly.

You mean the 'legalese', like the writing on the tag on furniture that says that removing the tag is a punishable crime?  :D

You worry about it getting on your lips and hands but not on the surface of your lungs, as well as in your bloodstream, where it ends up if it is to do anything useful?

'The poison is in the dose'.  If you were to swim in the stuff, you might have a problem but a few drops here or there isn't going to leave your heirs happy campers.  ;)

I have to agree with VapinMazo in the fact if you were that worried about it then you probably wouldn't be vaping it to begin with.You understand exactly why the warnings are on the bottle as it does a good job of explaining it.Of course if you drink the entire contents(like most chemicals) you are going to be ill but,if you do like it says and wash it off with water you will be fine.I can understand you not being satisfied with the "tank" because of some problems that are either with the "tank" itself or "operator error" with using it.Being upset about the product has nothing to do with the nicotine or it's "harmful" effects.I'm sure if the product is faulty TotallyWicked will replace it...
Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?
