    I've noticed the leaking as well....filled a Vortex and set it on my desk last night and this morning between a quarter and a half of the liquid had leaked out from the battery end onto my table.
    I tried this Vortex on my 5V passthru for only a few puffs so I am wondering if the 5V is just too much for the adhesive they use to seal the bottom.

    That sound about right because @ 4.5v I could see the coil glowing.
    Bad already told us that they were NOT made for over 4.2v.

    This very well may be...these are designed for an eGo/VGO actually and is what they are tested on. 5V as we have said is not recommended for these...

    Yep.....lost my tip in the toilet the 3rd time it slipped off. I just put a drip tip on the Vortex and it works perfectly.

    Anyway, I did find one in the pack that leaks too. (not to bad, but enough to be a problem)
    It is not where the outer tube is pressed onto the connector. It is leaking down through the center pin of the connector.
    How ever the juice gets down to the wick seems to be working a bit too well.

    This may turn out to be the doom of them. After all the juice has to be able to get from the upper chamber down to the wick but, what tells it when to stop wicking? If your using it then perhaps you will use the juice as fast as it seeps down but then, when it just sits there (over night). It seems that they all seep some juice out the bottom overnight or when idling for several hours.

    Honestly tho Mine which i got at noon has been sitting on the desk and not a speck of juice has gone down so it must stop pulling when the wick is drenched
