    Hey guys, sorry if this is a silly question but after loads of experience with RDAs, I decided to try an RTA.
    I bought the Kensei by Vandy Vape and I’m absolutely loving it. It gives good flavour and never dry hits, however I did notice that bubbles only seem to come from one air flow hole. I’ve tried wicking it in many different ways and none have led to any issues besides the bubbles being so lopsided. I was wondering if this matters at all and if my wicks are still getting properly juiced on both sides.
    Thank you :)

    I’ve often wondered the same thing but disregard when it continues to vape well. I don’t have a good answer for you but would love to hear if anyone does. I’ll keep an eye on this thread. Maybe we both just ask silly questions, who knows, lol.

    bubbles on one side are ok, the capillary action of the wicks is still moving juice to the coils. i would only worry if you dont see any bubbles, or very very large bubbles that would indicate a choked wick or leaking respectively.

    This one is physics. The bubbles will come out the higher side. You might be able to get bubbles to come out both sides it you held the thing EXACTLY level, but that is very hard to do.

    Mine does the same thing and it doesn't effect the performance.

    Well, I've never worried about my bubbles, but it's nice that there's a nice, scientific explanation. Yeah, I only worry if I don't see bubbles, not exactly where they are coming from (more because it never occurred to me, I'm not saying it's a bad question, at all).

    I rarely get bubbles to come out of both juice holes. Never affected the vape, and everything seems to be good.

    This makes sense. Have used mostly older RTA’s (Kayfuns and Russians) for years and have never seen bubbles coming out of both sides yet they still vape fine.
