Does AGI dripping & tank atomizer have a hole open in drip mode?

    I just want to know if the wick hole and fill hole are threaded and come with screws so when it is in drip mode It will not leak onto my mod? Or do one of the holes always remain open?

    I was going to get and IGO-L or -w but figured why not get this and I will have a Genny style that has what looks like and improved positive post compared to my aga-t2 with its little thin post.

    It does have screws to fill the holes but I have seen reviews saying it still leaks.

    yup- the agi will leak in dripper mode- the agi2 doesn't leak because it has different screws, so get v2 if you can.. also the spring centre pos post sucks big time- you'd have to replace it because it will cause voltage drop.. once the post is fixed it's really good.

    What do you mean get "v2". I have a aga-t2 are you saying if I use the screws from the aga-t2 it wont leak? Or there is already a version 2 of the atomizer I am asking about.

    The issue about the voltage drop with the spring I think wont be an issue if i just turn up my mod 1 volt higher than I usually vape . A trade off for having a screw at the top of my positive post compared to my current genny the aga-t2.

    Talking about the agi 2 in 1 tank and dripper not the aga t2. The spring in the agi is not just about the voltage loss its also has issues with sub ohm and the spring breaking.

    cheaper just to get a decent dripper and a genesis and then you can use both at the same time. way too many parts for a geni in the agi. many are reporting heavy voltage loss over the spring (which should be a solid screw). then while in dripper mode, hope youi dont misplace some of those parts somewhere.

    How do you replace it and where do you get the parts?

    I have an AGI and I am about ready to see how far I can throw it.....

    My AGI has been collecting dust since I got it. Probably the biggest dissapointment of any vape related purchase so far. It's terrible.

    On the other hand I just got my IGO-W in yesterday.. very very pleased with it.

    I'd recommend to anyone skip the novelty of the 2in1 and get two atty's that are each designed to do one thing and do it well.

    Lol I'm really glad I skipped the agi and had the igo-w instead. Mate to be honest i have only gone on reviews on this one I have seen using a needle instead of the spring do a Google for agi needle fix you should find it.

    I was going to buy the v2 a couple of days ago that fixes the leaking but on the reviews a keep seeing issues with voltage drop and the spring collapses with sub ohm etc etc so I just bought the igo-w instead.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I love my AGI. I agree with Thrasher. It's probably easier to just buy a dripper. I tried the drip mode. Not too impressed. But replacing the inner spring with a small copper tube(I bought at the local hardware store) is the fix. When I replaced my spring, it had already started to melt. This AGI has performs great now. I prefer it over the aga t2. I never went back to dripping mode. Phoenix V5 a vaping beast. And as far as leaks I've had no problems with the screws in place.

    So from the sound of it I would be better off if I just keep using my aga-t2 and get a IGO-W

    The igo-w is a much better dripper than the agi in dripper mode, imo.
