    Each rta design generally wicks somewhat differently. I would suggest watching wicking videos for your particular atty.

    Here’s one if found, but there are several more

    It sounds like over wicking of some sort but certainly a few youtube tutorials on your device will help you figure out what wicking error you may be making.

    I started out shoving a lot of wicking material into everything and quickly discovered that to be a major mistake. A wick that just fits the coil and is thinned out to just barely fill the juice well is generally what works well by keeping the juice flowing. A balance though as too little might leak. Trial and error with each new RTA is in order.

    The Last thing I do after I Prime the Wick is to take my Wick Fluffing Tool ( a Big Sewing Needle with slightly Dull Point on it ) is Mush a Grove in the wick tails so when looking down on the deck it looks like this...

    You think it would Leak? But it Doesn't. And it Greatly Reduces Dry Hits.

    BTW - Wicking is Very Important. But even the Best Wicking Job has a Limit. At that point, adding a Few Drops of Water to a Thick VG e-Liquid can make a Huge Difference.

    I have one of these and in my opinion, it's a piece of....... Messed with it for 3 days. Couldn't get it to not leak. (yeah, dbl negative!)
    I have no patience for inferior, poorly designed products.
