Herakles Plus Leaks
Just bought this Herakles Plus, an hour after the purchase, it leaks through the air intake holes. Not standing up though but laying on its side or being in my pocket while sitting.

Any suggestions? I have 30 days to return but if I can fix it, that would be dope. It hits fabulously. Running it on a kbox nano, Ni200 coil@450f.

Or is this a known problem and should I return it?

Nice.
 No idea why your old tank leaked, they're usually quite good.

Me either. Very disappointing. Hopefully I caught a break. And everything will work just fine.

Yea, thanks. So far so good. It did or it was my fault but a lot leaked out the intake hole. Either from filling it from halfway pressure pushed juice down or which I was very careful let some get down the chimney, the nozzle on cuttwood is so thick, hard to fit in the juice feeder.

Took doods coil out, it is a 0.25ohms 80w and up dual coil. My mod goes upto 60w. Installed a 0.50ohms dual coil uwell coil, running 45w.

Vapes so good I'd say that the herakles and crown comes close.

Just to bad the sense leaked, sux. I talked to dood on the phone he said that he went through 3 tanks without a leak, then I asked if he laid it on its side he said no. Well, that's what it takes but it works out as he has it on an rx200 and stands it all the time I guess. I on the other hand am on the go all the time so the nano and crown is perfect for pockets no leaks at all, all day.

RE: Herakles Plus Leaks
I'm glad you found one that doesn't leak. I'd still suggest you stand it up whenever possible though. Tanks aren't made to be on their sides, and even though you found one that doesn't leak right now, it's quite possible that it will begin leaking in the future. It's nothing wrong with the tank, they just aren't supposed to be on their sides. 
I understand being on the go a lot, I work in sales and I spend every day driving around visiting clients. I used to just put my mod in a cup holder to keep it upright. Now I bought a pouch that hangs from my air vent that holds my mod so I can still use my cup holder Tongue
Maybe it won't ever leak, and that would be great. I just want you to know that it's possible it could leak and I don't want you to think it's broken if it does start to leak.

Oic. Had no idea they are just stand up. Andbyea this crown did leak on me on its side full. Half full I don't think it leaks on its side, guess I spoke to soon.
