I built mine like a regular dripper, sounds like you've done the same?

Haha, beat me to it Big Grin

I'd center it a bit more but otherwise it looks perfect, that won't cause a leak

Try a vertical build with the cotton under the juice injector hole like Paul suggested and see if it helps.

It's possible high vg juice could help too, what's the vgpg of your juice?

If you have the plastic tank one that is a clone buddy. The authentic is still SS. Unfortunately thee are a lot of clones out there. The original is not top fill either. The clone is. But the clone has issues.

So it could be your orings are the problem or the hole for dripping is too large to maintain the vacuum. With a clone you can ignore all my previous advice, lol. It's crapshoot to get a decent one. Sry to say this.

yep, its the plastic tank. The thing is i cant find replacements anywhere. not from my local vape shop, or anywhere on the web in my country.
The drip hole is so small i dont believe a needle would fit trough. so i guess the orings are the problem.

Thanks for the help guys, i will try with some dental floss and get back to you.

RE: [Help] RDTA Big Dripper v2
I don't mean to sound patronizing, but since no one has mentioned it yet I might as well say: make sure you've tightened down all the screw-up parts well. I have the original Big Dripper, it's one of my favorite RDAs but it can leak if I don't tighten it down well enough. Or like others have said, the O-ring could be the problem, most likely the ring inside the top cap that seals where the push-in tip goes. Your build looks nice, but very over saturated. 

Welcome to the forum, and good luck getting it fixed! I hope it works out for you! I'm looking forward to hearing how things go with it, the Big Dripper is a nice RDA but it's a bit harder to work with than some.
