    Default Kanger T3 gurgling

    First and foremost- Ive been around the site a while just new to posting. Hopefully I put this thread in the correct location. If I put this in the wrong spot, I'm sorry. And I tried to find adequate information from other posts but was unable to do so. So decided to post a new thread.


    Ok, so I've read a number of posts and watched a number of videos to supposedly stop the T3 from gurgling when it gets low. I love this clearo but this is my only issue with it. I've tried a number of the recommendations without success. Wondering what any of you have tried that works. And no, I've yet to recoil it myself as I do not have the materials to do so.


    I've added an extra flavor wick (no change, if anything my flavor is muted a bit)
    I've flipped the silica ring over (it then began gurgling after 1/3 of tank instead of when it only has 1/3 tank left.
    I have, whenever possible, left my system upside down so that the wicks do not saturate and flood the inner tube. This doesn't really do much either. And it's annoying.


    I have heard that if I take the evod base and coil and put the t3 silica ring (flipped upside down) on top of the evod ring that all my problems will be solved. Have you found this to be true? I have a few EVODS, but I use them and don't have an extra base laying around. Is there a place that I can buy just the evod bases?


    I would also hate to do thT and then be left with half a dozen T3 base/coils that would just collect dust. I don't like to waste stuff. If I did take from my evod and then took my T3 base and put it in my evod would it allow me to still use my EVODS?


    In theory I can just refill it when it has 1/3 of a tank left. But if I'm out and about one day it's annoying that there's 1/3 in my tank that is simply not usable. I might as well just use the EVODS. But I have like 6 T3 clearos and I don't want to waste them.


    Also, the T3 upgrade base that I have seen online, does this solve that problem? If I understand correctly it basically turns the T3 into a T3S, is that correct? Do the T3S clearos not gurgle when the tank is low? And if I were to buy the upgrade base, will evod heads fit in them? I have a few extra evod heads but as stated I do not have any extra bases.


    I've also hear thicker juices sometimes work better. Most of the juice I've found myself using is fairly thin. It's not by choice, it's just what I've found that I like.


    If if helps any- I use 2 joyetech 900 twists and a 350 mini ego (although the mini usually gets the EVODS put on it for some reason)


    Thanks in advance for any suggestions/information/feedback.

    This is direct from Kanger. Hopefully it will help you. They are speaking of a Protank but, the same will apply to the T3s.

    The metal tube in the center of this Clearomizer leads from the mouthpiece to the battery end. Avoid getting liquid in this tube when filling the Clearomizer.
    When unfastening the base (atomizer head) to refill the Clearomizer, the seals are temporarily broken and liquid will leak from the mouthpiece or escape into the center tube. Always wrap a cloth or piece of tissue around the mouthpiece when unfastening the base of the Clearomizer.
    Gurgling noise or leaks: This is a sign that liquid has found its way into the metal tube in the center of the Clearomizer (and usually occurs after a refill). Ridding the center tube of liquid will resolve the issue. To do so without emptying the tank, remove the Clearomizer from the battery, wrap a cloth or tissue around the battery end of the Clearomizer and blow through the mouthpiece.
    The atomizer head of the Protank can unfasten when unscrewing the tube or base. Always secure the atomizer head before reinstalling the base of the Protank.
    It is normal to find a small amount of liquid in the battery contact area when removing the Clearomizer or any atomizer. We recommend cleaning the battery before charging it.
    When possible, keep the tank full and never below 1/3 full of eLiquid ("topped off"). This helps maintain the "vacuum" in the tank and prevent leaks.
    Atomizer heads have an average lifespan between 10 to 20 days. When the atomizer head wears down, it may begin to leak. Replace the atomizer head with a new one if available.

    Good luck!

    You may want to replace that oring as it was. It may be allowing juice to leak into the air tube. I am able to completely remove that ring but, I vape at higher voltages. It does not work for everyone.

    Kanger has a similar write up about the T3 and the EVODS. Basically the same but interchanged product names. Each time I fill it I clean down the tube to ensure that I there is no residual liquid in the tube. The head and the base are one piece with the t3 so there is nothing to tighten up. I'm aware that the gurgling means liquid has found its way in tube and that keeping it filled above 1/3 of a tank will mostly stop this from happening, but like I said, this just seems like a complete waste of space and liquid. I might as well use one of my EVODS because 1/3 of 3 ml is 1ml and the EVODS hold just over 1.5 and I can basically suck them dry. But if I'm out and about all day and I have 3ml in a tank I want to be able to use it. That's why I would like to figure out how to stop the gurgling when the tank has about 1/3 left.

    It's not leaking, so I don't think the Oring is damaged. However there is that little silica (idk what to call it but it's not really a ring, more like a cap that goes over the tube and down to the wicks) - that piece. Well like I said I've tried flipping it upside down and I have tried switching them from other T3s. No luck. They are all the same. Do you suggest I replace it with something different all together?

    I've tried taking it off as well. Gurgles even sooner with it off no matter the voltage.

    Thanks

    O wait. I just re read what you wrote. I misread the last post. Yes, I put the silica ring back. I thought you were saying replace it, as in put so,etching else there. My apologies. Yes I had to put it back.

    So with the ring there upside right, you are still getting gurgling? Did you try unscrewing it from your battery, putting a paper towel under the battery connection end and gently blowing through the mouthpiece? You have to have juice in the air tube IMO

    Also, be sure that the silicone seal that goes around the bottom of the base does not have any crimps in it. That would stop it from sealing correctly as well.

    The few times that I ever got gurgling from a T3, I just raised my voltage up and vaped through it. That would not work for you without a VV mod though.

    If all else fails, maybe try another base and coil?

    FYi- Kanger has gone to a universal coil now. Evod coils do fit and work in the new T3S base with the old and new T3s.

    The more that I think about it, if you are having this happen when you get down to 1/3 tank of juice, the juice has to be seeping in where the bottom air tube meets the top air tube. That silicone ring should prevent that although you do have to refill the T3s when they get down to about 1/4 tank.

    Oh yes. Once the little ring is put back like it should be there is still gurgling. It happens when the tank has 1/3 ish left in it.

    Every time I refill I take the base and run it under hot water making sure to get water down the small tube in the base and let it run down through the battery connector (with it off the bat of course). Then I paper towel dry the outside paying attention to the threads, the part that connects to the battery, and I twist up some paper towel and run it down the little tube on the base. And it's fine. Until the tank gets to be where it has 1/3 liquid left. Almost like clockwork. I can't take it off and clean it out even with 1/3 left but then it still seems to do it again.

    The message from kanger is listed on. The site I bought it from. It's not like I didn't know it COULD happen. But I didn't realize it would happen with all of them!! And with so many "fixes" available that I found on forums I figured if I ran into a problem with ONE of them I could just use one of the fixes. But damn, every one of them, all the time! There has to be a way around it.

    I do have a VV ego twist. But it didn't seems to help with me.

    Ok so what you are saying is that the evod/pro tank coils will def fit on the upgrade base that I've seen online for a few bucks? And if I did that I would just be "stuck" wasting the money, so to speak, with the old one piece base. And the new two piece does not have this gurgling problem at 1/3 tank?
