    Default Help! My Tank Is Leaking...............Don't Panic!

    If you discover that your tank is leaking out from the battery connector air hole...don't panic! Simply remove the tank from the battery, turn the tank upside down, wipe off the battery and the carto connector thoroughly. This is caused by juice flooding the air wick tube and juice will start to siphon the tank through the feeder holes.

    By turning the tank upside down the feeder holes will be exposed to air which will stop the siphoning action and stop the leak.

    Just like a standard cartomizer you should always be able to look through the cartomizer to see that the air tube is clear. If there is juice in the air tube that you want to remove simply remove the tank from your battery. Take a doubled over piece of tissue or paper towel, place it over the Drip Tip and give it a couple hard draws. Do not attempt to blow it out as this will pressurize the tank causing the juice to leak out of the air tube.

    OK...disclaimer: The device is probably not at fault I'm sure...it's definitely the user!
    I have the OMG 5volt Mod. Is this thing supposed to gurgle, spit and have a hard draw? I did what you suggested Mr. Snow and it is still leaking. Turned upside down. Left it there for a while. Put paper towel over drip tip, many hard draws later, still not performing as it should. Any tips? Advice? Thanks V4Ler's!

    Ms. Chimchim if you're taking a lot of hard draws that's most likely what's causing your flooding issues. Have you tried it on a different item to see if the draw is any better?

    Can't try tank on anything else. No adapter. Tank only fits on OMG Mod. Adapter that came with it doesn't work on any other PV.

    Didn't know you're using the 510 threaded tank Ms. Chimchim... That sadly is the draw of the 510.
