Why is my atomizer leaking, popping, spitting?

There are a few reasons why leaking can occur. Luckily, there are a few tips to prevent the issue from happening:

  • Check the seals/silicone o-rings. They may be warped/bent in a way that prevents the tank from creating a proper seal. 
  • Try to keep your device positioned vertically if you’re not using it for extended periods of time. Leaving your device laying on its side will cause the e-liquid to seep through the airflow holes. 
  • Check if the coil is loose or stripped. You may attempt to replace the coil with a brand new coil and reattempt to use the atomizer if this is the root of the issue. 
  • Avoid over-priming your coil. If too much e-liquid is used, this will cause the e-liquid to pop/spitback. 
  • Use a different e-liquid to see if this helps with the leakage.
  • Fire the device at a lower power setting until the spit-back issue has reduced. 

You can prevent popping / spitback by warming up your atomizer if you're using a brand-new device or haven't used for an extended time (such as overnight in some cases). To warm up a device, make sure there are adequate e-liquids in the chamber and test-fire the device at a low-wattage setting. Once the coil is warm up and you hear less of the popping noise, you can start vaping with no issue!
