Title says it all really, what's causing some of these to leak and what are the fixes?
Abe, are you sure they actually leak? There's quite a bit of condensation gathering on the tanks during normal use but that is to be expected. It may be mistaken for leaking.
I've never had a leaking tank, but I'm certain it can happen when the seal around the piercing/wicking needle is not tight. Or if the filling cap on the tank has been removed too many times for refilling and becomes loose. Never happened to me, though.
No leaking for me.... I do get the condensation on the outside (lower part) of the tank, The only time I had a problem was when I had not fully seated the tank in the atty (sticky mess). I have the eGo-T and the Inferno tanks, and have been using them for 2 weeks.
I have only been using mine for 3 days & NO LEAKS HERE & I'm loving it !
I have not removed the little cap yet, pierced it w/atty & am using syringe to fill.
I am using VG juice & have thinned a little so it will work w/tank.... wonder if the leakers are PG users ?
sorry our "NOT LEAKING" ...isn't helping you answer this question ? Is it?
Good luck figuring this out & thanks for my wonderful new toy !

1. Make sure the little plastic tab isn't hanging like a "chad". I've found that spinning the tank on the atty will cause it to break off. Sometimes that hanging-chad creates just enough space that a leak could occur.
2. Back the atty off the battery just a bit for easier airflow. The suction from use could be pulling too much juice into the wick.

I've had two "leak" now. My original eval unit leaked form the factory, and one of my purchased units developed a leak yesterday.
First and foremost, e-liquid viscosity has a lot to do with it. I have some very "thin" 555 that I received from a reputable vendor, and it will run through the "T" like poop through a goose. The wicking delivery system just will not work with such a "watery" liquid.
Secondly, it has been noted that the "fluff" of the wick and its position in the piercing tube can also have an effect on delivery.... going from not enough flow (dry, burning taste) to too much flow (leak). Both of my "leakers" were "fixed" by adjusting the wick..... I'm glad I was able to resurrect them, but I really wish such "adjustments" weren't necessary.
I had one stop producing vapor in a day, must been a bad one because the other is great and one weird thing is two of the tanks are leaking where you draw from and no I do not set it upside down, drawing on it a couple days it builds up at the end.... but I have my suspicions.....
