My iclear 30 worked very well for the first week, then my top coil popped. So I thought "oh well, time to replace the head". After that, gurgling and leaking out the bottom like crazy, also dry hits. Took it apart, cleaned it, put it back together real tight. Still leaking. After a while, and about ready to throw it out, I tried one more thing. I thought "Maybe I have the head too tight". Took it apart, cleaned it again, put it back together, but I only tightened the head snug and not as tight as I could like usual. Ever since then, not one leaking issue. Try doing that and I bet your leaking issues will be gone. Good luck!

Ya' know... there's a review on the Protank vs. iClear and they mention the iClear leaking. Lemmy look............ Found it!
I read it a few months ago but don't remember the details, so I'll leave that to you.
Protank vs iClear 30 The Clearomizer Wars
Thanks State O' Flux,
Just read it..
I agree with it for the most part.. especially the leaking and thirstiness of the iclear(s)..
I just cleaned and put a coil in loosely as bukugrotesk suggested in a iclear 16, so if I get a big leak I wont be wasting too much juice.
I have a couple protanks and have not had the leaking issues too bad.. as the post stated, when the tank gets down to about 1/3.
My favorite juice tastes best in a kanger metal bcc, I just want to find the best setup.. I wish I read reviews before I was talked into getting the iclears.. I know someone that has never had a leak and still using the same coil after 2 months in a 30.. I dont have that type of luck
An observation, and please correct me if I'm miss-guided. Seems like you might still be living in clearo/glasso-land - mymares. It's not a bad place to live once you figure it all out... but you might want to consider stepping up your game and consider carto tanks.
Cartomizers are pretty reliable... and when you toss one in a - suitable size for your needs - Pyrex or polypropylene tank, you have a nice combination of an adequate juice supply, convenience, cleanliness and ease of maintenance, all with a reliable, good tasting, low cost atomizing device.
After that there are a few more ways to go, but lots of folks that also use RBA/RDAs, bottom feeders and so on - still use and are very happy with carto tanks.
Just a suggestion... if you're rockin' and rollin' with clearos, then vape on.
I have two iclear 30's and absolutely no leaks ever. Mine came in a hard plastic case with innokin name on it. I just clean the heads and dry burn and re-use and they're fine. They go through juice like a MOFO though. I'm actually using one now and looked for leaks and none. Gorilla Juice in it for now and Sahara Blend in the other (thinner juice 70/30 PG/VG). Not really a fan of the Sahara though, sorry to be off topic.
I have been thinking about carto's have never used them.. But it may be my next trial..
I suppose you could say I have been living in clearo/glass land.. that is all I have known so far..
I have ventured into DIY juice and rebuilding my coils. Can you rebuild carto's?
No, I'm afraid you can't... at least not with any ease. But... if you buy in relatively small bulk, cartos, pre-punched for tank use, can cost as little as $1.08 per, and they can last 1-2 weeks.
