    Hello
    I just bought a VOOPOO TOO and am using the UForce RTA that came with it. I am new to vaping. I find that after taking a hit my lips or the top of my mouth seems to taste like Ejuice. I have inspected my device and found that below the drip tip there seems to be liquid in the hole and if I take the drip tip off there is sometimes Ejuice below it. I am wondering if this is normal (I assume it may not be) and if it isn't I am wondering how I should go about fixing it?
    Thank you

    I believe it's more accurate to say it's spitting as it's coming out of the top of my tank into my mouthpiece

    Sounds like the base is flooded, take some papertowels, put them around the base airflow and blow down through the drip tip.

    I have tried that a few times but the problem persists and it seems that the liquid never stops coming when doing this. I blow through the drip tip while covering the air holes of the device and the juice just keeps coming out

    Check the chimney to see if its screwed down tight with the top of the coil and then the coil to the base

    You said it's an RTA? Check your wicking, redo that not the coil...

    If you've not wicked properly, you will experience flooding and spitting - those two together when you don't have enough wick.

    Make sure that you've put enough wick through your coil so that its a snug fit but not so much that when you pull the wick through it causes your coil to move... there is a goldilocks place in there that takes a little practice to find...

    Watch a couple build videos and see how they do the wicking on your particular rta. Just keep trying with it, wicking is more important than you realize.

    From looking at it it's not an RTA it takes a premade coil from the manufacturer. Not sure why they are calling it an RTA.

    I checked the English version of the Voopoo website (UFORCE – VOOPOO VAPE) and it is not referred to as an RTA. It is simply the Uforce. Of course there may be some translation problems, this is the descriptive text:

    UFORCE which adopts the precise OCC coil head,has super strong energy like the light sword with force to highly analysis the e-liquid, thus making it freely goes with any mod and easily get smooth and aroma taste; Its upgraded venting system and triple balanced inhale system help you to be protected from mouth heating when you vape and awake the force.

    To the OP: Are you using it within the suggested (or even 'Best') Wattage range?

    I found this diagram on their site:

    Maybe that o-ring near the top is leaking? The orange bit that looks like two spots on either side of the drip tip in the picture.

    Light sword? Analysis the e-liquid? Awake the force? Are they paying star wars royalties on this thing?

    Uh, if your O-rings are not seated correctly you will not create the necessary vacuum to vape the tank, regardless of what tank it IS. You need to replace that O-ring and check how all the others have seated when you reassemble it and start over. I don't think it's the coil. I don't even think it's the tank. Not until you replace that O-ring and then let us know if it's still flooding.

    Replace it! Good luck! :)

    Still leaking? Tried a coil from another box in case it was a bad box? If so, I might look at warrantying it, there is no reason for a drop-in coil tank to leak, and I have never experienced it. Although I know it happens, but one of the reasons people prefer drop-in coils is because they tend to be simple, more error free, and easy to manage.

    If you want leaks, move to an RTA, I can almost guarantee a bit of leaking from time to time (although it gets better as one travels up the learning curve). But I'm going to suspect there is something wrong going on with your tank. What it is, I have no idea, but at this point, I'd say you've tried most of the solutions offered. Best of luck,

    1) E liquid too runny - try a thicker (higher VG) liquid.
    2) Adjust your inhale, you may be flooding the coil by too strong a drag or vise versa
    3) Increase your wattage - you may not be vaporising all the liquid causing flooding
    4) Check all o rings are sealing
    5) It's a piece of cr*p
