    I leave it on its side most of the time when its not in use and am experiencing no leaks so far. I've even dropped it once but still doing good. Did you just fill up the tank with juice? Leave it to set for awhile. When i changed the coil to try out a different juice, i had the same noise. Im not too sure about why its leaking from the bottom though.. Only reason i can think of is maybe the bottom cap is not screwed into the tank tight enough.. Maybe the others can help..

    I use the Protank on my epipe as my daily setup. So far I have not faced any leaking problems with it. The only time when there might be some spillage is after I fill the tank and don't clean up before capping back on.

    Bubbly (sizzling?) sound is probably from the atomiser. No spillage when exhaling.

    You might have a dud? Probably time to contact the vendor you got it from.

    Did u lose the insulator cap? The one that u cap on top of the wicks.

    Did u take off any wicks? If yes, advisable to leave at least 2 remaining, if not juice can leak out of the bottom.

    Lastly, the juice u are using maybe too thin. Try using thicker juices.

    Nope the insulator cap is still there.
    Removed 1 wick.
    It happened with both my kangers.

    Like leaving it in my pocket for like 15min or so and this happens.
    It leaks from the bottom to the positive wire cap where the o ring is.

    Don't think its the juice though.
    First time I used it i didn't have any problem.

    Maybe I'll try my coil heads with 3 wicks and see if this happens.

    Maybe I'm wrong, try replacing with a thicker wick? Did u try to drain off the juice, reinstall the bottom holder and the head? For my understanding, the bottom holder attach to the coil head require to click on with a bit of force as there are air hole below which has chance to induce leaking.

    Happened on both my tanks so i doubt its the individual parts.
    Think i do screw it on pretty tight.
    Anyway i'll be more mindful when screwing them on and see how it goes over the next few days.

    I get leaks on mine laying down when they're almost empty, but not when full. If that's what you're getting too, you may just have to try and keep it at least 1/3 full.

    I have removed on wick, leaving me with the coiled wick and one flavor wick. I'm using 60/40 juice.
