    The wicks function as a pressure seal of sorts. When you lay one on it's side (and there are a few other variables involved), you may be exposing one wick of the tank to the positive or atmospheric pressure in the center tube. That pressure transfers, and reduces or eliminates the vacuum (negative pressure) in the tank.
    When you loose that vacuum, you loose one of the key elements helping to keep juice in the tank, and out of your coil head and the air tubes above and below it.

    Here's a better, although more lengthy explanation.

    I find that replacing the 1 mm flavor wick with a 2mm seems to help

    Are you removing the silicone cap that fits over the vent tube? That would do it, especially if it's happening with multiple tanks there must be a common issue.

    Good point Rick... or even upside down can do it.

    Silicone cap installed I only remove them when I clean heads and I only do that when I change flavors

    litecigusa has it pretty cheap. Since you only need a little for your clearo it will last a long time.
