Bought a smok mag last week, which came with a prince tfv12 tank. All was working great until yesterday afternoon when it started leaking the liquid everywhere, from the bottom airflow. I’ve tried changing coils, from the q4 to the t-10, same problem. Put a new q4 in and, again, same problem!
I'm now starting to get pretty miffed to be honest! Tried fiddling with the coils, checked o rings, tightened up seals, filling tank less etc and nothing seems to be working!
Anyone have a solution for this? It’s a shame because I really like the tank itself, great flavour and vapour, but at this point I’m getting close to buying some fags because I’m sick to the back teeth of the tank pissing my liquid away (as in a full tank in minutes!). 🤬🤬
I'm probably not the best person to answer that in all honesty butterflybee88 , as once I find a tank that works for me, then I buy it in all the colours available and don't experiment further. I'm only adventurous up to a certain point.
Nearly all sub-ohm tanks with bottom airflow leak, I find the best way of dealing with them is to fill with AF closed, then turn them upside down before opening the AF - but they will still leak if you leave them too long between uses - I probably find this more than others because of the amount of devices I have on the go
In my experience any bottom air flow tank can leak. I cannot abide any leaking and my solution is to only use top air flow tanks. I only use Rebuildables (OBS and my favourite GeekVape Zeus). The Aspire Cleito EXO Sub Ohm Tank is top air flow and there are no doubt others. Never used one myself.
Main cause of leaks on the TF tanks are O rings or dodgy coils. First thing I would do is replace the top rubber seal in the fill port as they flatten down over time and let air in and eventually pushes the juice out of the afc.
I don't really use any sub ohm tanks now, the ones I do have are in the for sale section as I mainly use RTA's now. I would agree about the original Cleito as being one of the best that I have used and the 0.4 ohm coils are by far the best to go for. The Exo tank with top air flow is good but not as good as the Cleito in my opinion
The Uwell Nunchaku I have for sale has been compared to the Cleito regarding the coils and airflow, but I have never used it so cannot say myself.
If you want to go the RTA route, then I would recommend the OBS engine dual coil RTA,either the original or the V2. 5ml,top fill, top airflow,good flavor, and NO LEAKING EVER
half the prob with sub tanks isnt its leaking but its the spitting of juice from the coil thats running down the airflow holes this builds up until the bottom bit fills up and then empties itself all over yer hands and mod
thats prob not the main problem with the one you have as smok are not the best with the coils i had no end of probs with the tfv8 till i started using the rba

I have the Resa Prince & the TFV12 Prince and although I have never had leaking issues, the coils are just awful! The base of the coils can have seal issues. Before I use any Smok coil I bang the base on a table to make sure the legs are fully trapped.
For recommendations for other sub ohm stock coil tanks- My top 3 are 1st-Cleito 120 2nd- Vaporesso Cascade (I use the Smok Mesh coils) 3rd-Uwell Valyrian
If you bought the kit from a b&m store then take it back so the staff can have a look to see if there are any defects in the base of the tank.
Do you have the bubble glass on it or the standard 2ml that came with it?

Just a quick update to this....... Had to send the whole kit back. After the leaking issue, the mod itself fritzed and wouldn’t recognise any tank, regardless of coil etc, just said ‘no atomiser’ all the time. Received a replacement on Saturday and *touch wood* all is well up to now!
