E-liquid leaks in vapes. Why does this happen?

By IQOS Team

why do vapes leak

How many times have you noticed that there is a leak of e-liquid while using your e-cigarette? It is indeed quite common in some atomizers and in no way does it mean that your device has broken down and needs to be replaced.

So let's take a look at some reasons why you may encounter e-liquid leaks in your vape:

  • A faulty vape tank could be the cause of a leaking vape, so it is worth checking for visible signs of damage to the tank, such as cracks.
  • Overfilling, or incorrectly filling a vape tank with e-liquid can cause leaks. Good practice is to take care when filling or refilling the tank with e-liquid. For some devices, you may want to leave a bubble of air at the top of the tank to create a vacuum that keeps liquid from spilling out.
  • Incorrect e-liquids can be problematic for vapes. Only use e-liquid that is compatible with your device and avoid liquids that are incompatible. It is best practice to follow the manufacturer’s guidance on compatible e-liquids.
  • Incorrect wattage or voltage levels could result in a leak. This is something the manufacturer's advice should cover, and we recommend you follow this guidance.
  • A faulty, malfunctioned or worn out vape coil is another common reason for leaks. So make sure you check its STATE, changing it as regularly as needed.

How to properly look after your e-cigarette

Smaller or slightly more considerable actions in your daily usage can ensure that your e-cigarette will not leak. First and foremost is to use your device according to its manufacturer's instructions.

What you can do to maintain your device is regular and proper cleaning. Consider that, by cleaning your e-cigarette, you will be able to detect any damage to your device, which you will be able to repair in a timely manner, as it can lead to bigger problems if left to grow. Often, cleaning goes a long way in preventing problems, like leakages, in a vape. Use this cleaning time to inspect the device and check for any damages. Vaping with a malfunctioning part can cause lasting damage, and we recommend replacing any defective components of a vape to prevent this.

Measures like these will likely help to prevent frequent leaks in the future. However, when preventive measures have been factored in but leaks still continue to occur, then it might be time to look for a replacement device. When considering a new device, quality is an important factor. You should look for modern quality devices, built to prevent liquid leakage.

If you are an adult smoker, looking for a smoke-free alternative such as e-cigarettes, we’ve got you covered. Try IQOS VEEV, a closed pod system vape, which uses MESH™ heating technology designed to prevent overheating of the e-liquid, consistently ensuring a significant reduction in the levels of harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Smoking alternatives are not risk free. They deliver nicotine, which is addictive. They are intended for use by adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products and are by no means a cessation method.
The best option to reduce the health risks associated with the use of tobacco and nicotine products is to quit their use altogether. However, for those adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, switching completely to vaping or heated tobacco products could be a better choice than continuing to smoke.
