    Just a little bump on the leaking issues- I have experienced this problem many times; it seems if your quick to wipe off both the male and the female 510 connectors, you can prevent a mouthful of juice. If possible, give it a rest, come back to it in ten minutes, sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. I have found no correlation between chain vaping and leaking, however, if it's already leaking, and your chain vaping, your going to be gulping juice. Though the leaking is a pain, the benefits of the dct far out ways this minor incontinence. When all else fails, clean it out, and start with a fresh carto. Infact, I haven't killed a carto yet, I have only replaced it due to leaking issues-

    when I assemble mine...I put the topcap on just enough so it won't leak..turn it sideways or upside down.. so no juice is over the hole in carto and then push cap on...then juice doesn't get pushed in carto and leak...:)

    I don't believe the leaking issue has anything to do with the filling technique or the tank, i am convinced it has to do with the cart. I have seen this happen out of the blue on carts without the tank, the juice pools in female side of the 510, seeming to pull juice put of the cart; if you blow them out, you will almost empty the cart or tank.

    that happened to me...I stopped filling my cartos fully first....but if you put the air bubble over the hole and blow ...it doesn't empty the tank..:)

    edit....if you don't put the air bubble over the hole ...it forces juice into the carto...

    I think I get you- I don't understand what the air bubble refers to though. Could you walk me through your process-

    I fill the tank....put the cap on lightly....tip the tank so there is no juice over the carto hole while holding the cap..(looks like an air bubble over the hole)...then snap the cap on...check for leaking...if needed I make air bubble over the hole again and blow carto lightly...hth..:)

    There super easy to punch. Place the cart in an open book, get a sheet rock screw (or something like that) tap with a hammer, I used to give a small dent with a flat head screw driver before using the screw, kept the screw in place. Really easy!

    Yup- barely penetrate the cart- place holes directly above white silicone condom. So easy. The book helps out a ton.

    I always use 2, but a lot of people use 1. I don't know if it would make a big difference though.

    two reasons....
    1. the slots work for me (I do one small slot) ..so if it ain't broke don't fix it :D.....just sayin

    2. I bought a dremel just for slotting....so I don't want the purchase to go to waste...lol

    I think any tank will leak if not filled properly...I have all different tanks...and they all have the same rule.....have the air bubble over the slot when you put top cap on....and I don't prefill my carto, it's what works for me......Improving the tank won't stop leaking as long as the leak is from the carto... its a leaky carto not a leaky tank.... .......it's user error, for me anyway...lol...I have it down now....there is a learning curve...but lots of how to help out there...:)..

    The only improvements that can be made are with the cartos.
