Huge leak TFV8 RBA
i have made and rba after watching some youtubers do it and i did it really nice i think, but when i fire the vape and if i hold it just a little bit the juice starts leaking A LOT. i can drain 4ml of juice in a matter of seconds if i hold down the fire button. ive tried re-wicking it a couple of times and searched all over the internett to find solutions, but i havent found anything that helps. the leaking only happens while firing, if i dont use the vape it doesnt leak at all.

Possible wicking issue. The vacuum created when drawing is forcing the juice out. Probably.

RE: Huge leak TFV8 RBA
How much wick material did you put down the wicking holes on the sides of the deck?

If you 'hold' it? You mean firing it without sucking on it? Thicker juice, more wick and don't redundant fire it.. shouldn't have any problems Smile
