    I recently bought a pharaoh. My first rta. I love it, other than when I fill it completely. I get some leakage out of the bottom of the tank. When the tank is partially full, I don't notice any.

    Is this caused by not having the cotton packed correctly? Or not enough cotton? Or am I missing something else?

    Could be a bad press fit on the base or condensation of you notice vape coming out anywhere after a draw my guess is that

    It only seems to happen when the tank is more then half full. That's what has me stumped. It's coming out the intake holes in the bottom.

    Top o ring maybe? When a tank is half full and you tilt it the juice hits the top

    I would bet it's the wicking! A full tank would put more pressure in the tank, just by the weight of all the juice, forcing it out passed the wicks. That makes sense to me :)
    BTW I really like the Pharaoh RTA also & have no leaking issues :)

    I was going to suggest that possibility, I found that when I didn't wick properly (enough) my first leaks would come if topfilling, then just general seepage as my rayon wick continued to shrink. If your wick just a hair more in the coil and maybe thin your tails slightly less, then with the airholes closed (sometimes even open is better on some of my RTAs) I don't have leaking on filling.

    That was it. I re-wicked and packed it in a bit better and so far no leaks. Thanks for all the help :)
