    Every moving part must seal to create the vacuum
    Coil in tight
    Top and bottom tight to the glass
    No debris on the o-rings
    O-rings on tank and coil in good shape
    Airflow holes closed before you open the tank to fill
    Do not overfill leave a gap at the top to assist with vacuum in the tank
    Don't subject the tank to heat sources that can thin out the juice and force it to flood the coil. Heat can be closed car, outside temps, coil getting to hot from chain vaping, or too high wattage.
    Wattage too low which allows flooding by not vaporizing all the juice on the coil
    Crack in the tank
    Burr on the the threads of any part

    If you decide on a new tank avoid SMOK. I personally like the Vaporesso NRG tank or the Cascade. Also like the Aspire Revvo, top air flow it's almost leak proof but only holds 3.6ml. I just got my Freemax Mesh Pro tank 3 days, no leaks.

    2 Links to videos on leaking tanks, one of which is a SMOK tank.

    If they are all leaking it's probably:
    An o-ring or seal.
    An o-ring left behind from a previous coil.
    And last but not least, way back when I used Smok pre built coils I found that on a lot of them the wires weren't bent completely over and the center plug didn't seat properly.
    I originally had this problem with the Kanger coils in the Subtank.
    Don't spin bottom pin of coil much or just push it flush if you can.

    Check out this video.

    Put the coil in tight, but not too tight. Overtightening will deform the coils ring and seal and will most definitely cause leaking.
