How To Fix A POD Leaking From Top Or Bottom

How To Fix A POD Leaking From Top Or Bottom

Having problems with your pre-filled pods?

Every POD system from time to time does get this issue. Although SOL is designed to reduced this issue but it can happen even to the best ones.

Make sure your battery is fully charged

An under-powered battery may not be able to vaporize the e-liquid sufficiently, leading to excess e-liquid leaking out of the atomizing chamber. Ideally keep your device charged when ever you are not using it. 

Make sure that you're using the device correctly.

Although it may sound like a silly point to make, not every pod kit is made to operate the same. Although you may be an experienced vaper, vaping on a pod kit incorrectly can cause problems.  For example SOL is designed to be used as Mouth To Lung MTL type vaping.

Don't draw too hard

Taking big, deep drags on a pod mod may lead to too much e-liquid going through the coil which cannot be vaporized properly. This usually proceeds to then leak out of the mouth piece. Try taking gentle drags to ensure the e-liquid is sufficiently vaporized.

Make sure your lips are creating a seal around the mouthpiece

If a vacuum isn't created in your mouth when vaping on a pod (like when sucking a straw), the excess air may encourage more e-liquid to be drawn into the coil that will then leak out of the mouth piece.

Check to make sure there are no blockages in the pod itself and that the pod is inserted correctly

Blockages in the centre pipe will restrict the airflow and un-vaporized e-liquid will eventually make its way out either through the mouthpiece or through the airflow holes. Also ensure that the pod has been inserted into the device correctly according to the manufacturers' instructions.

Clear out any excess e-liquid

If your pods are leaking, luckily there's an easy fix. Disconnect the pod from the battery and place a piece of tissue on the bottom of the pod. Gently blow through the mouthpiece a few times and any excess e-liquid will be forced out and onto the tissue. Re-insert the pod and try again.
Or
take the pod out, put a piece of tissue or paper towel over the mouth piece and suck all the loose juice out then wipe it off.  These usually fixes the issue.
