    Default Air sucking sound

    Today my 19mm XL IB Tank arrived and after filling the tank and using the thingy, it seems like there is a air leak. No fluid leaking but any draw on the drip tip I hear air.

    Right now using a 2 hole Smok 2.0 ohm carto with flange. Is this sound normal?

    Thanks

    not heard of that on a carto tank but did you prime it before you started using it without knowing what device its on cant give you many more ideas to check

    I used the thingy to prime it in the filled tank. I made sure the air bubbles stopped before I started vaping. I use a MVP2 and started it a only 6 watts. The vape is not burnt tasting but it's not a quiet.

    Yes, it's noisier than a clearo. The first time I got mine I was rather bothered by the noice, but now I'm used to it LOL How's the vape?

    The vapor is Great. Same juice in my IB tank and PT2 and what a difference. Now I can taste the juice. Thanks for the sound information.

    That's just the normal sound. It's comforting to me.

    I haven't received my IBTanked yet but (especially with a fresh batt) my Zen2 Carto tank sounds like a jet flying overhead compared to my clearo.

    There is a happy crackle when everything is perfect and you will find yourself seeking that. The noise does take some by surprise and it can be less or more but generally when it is cackling away the vape is very nice so most just associate it with having done things right

    For a completely different vape try parting your lips a little when taking a draw allowing air to come in to your mouth around the drip tip along with the draw. Might surprise you on how such a small thing will will make a huge difference.

    You all are right as I wasn't used to that sound. It does have a crackle in it. No leaking so far, and what a ton of vapor it's puts out at only 7 watts. A little afraid of cranking it any more as I don't want to burn the filling.
