Juice in the chimney

Cheers

That's spitback/condensation.

Likely you're puffing on it a bit too hard, or the wick is bringing a bit too much juice to the coil during the vape. You can try to re-wick it and/or change how you're puffing on it a bit to reduce it, but it will happen a bit over time no matter what you do.
Woah, mama!

Actually I like puffing hard, that's true, so I will try to to make the wicking more compact :)

thanks!!

Does the juice end up in your mouth.. ? or does it gurgle when you vape? I have some of these coming in the post.

I always get a but of juice when I change drip tips with all my high quality (pre made coils and random cotton stuffing) builds.. which means the juice has come up the chimney somehow, maybe condensation but it never really gets in my mouth.

Actually never gets to my mouth, but when I refill the juice, I place the bell cap with drip tip upside down, then juice leaks from the drip tip.

Definitely condensation then ;-) Spitback/gurgling would be worse and get in your mouth for sure.

Maybe try 1 gauge thinner wire for your next build at the same resistance? Or maybe try slightly lower resistance.

Woah, mama!

So lower resistance will condense less? I will give a try :)

Thanks johnny

it happens to me always with subtank bellcap, we're puffing hard and the chimney is close to the coil becuz the RBA is short already

Don't go too low though ;-) The acrylic of the bell cap's chimney can't take as much heat as a metal chimney.

It's not that it won't condense, more vapor = more condensation, but if you go slightly lower on the res., you might see a bit more of the extra juice being vaporized, leading to what seems like less condensation comparatively.

This happens on both my subtank bellcaps. Perhaps a little less liquid than yours, but still the same thing.
It's never caused a problem. I've built it as low as 0.45ohms and it still does it.
Has never really bothered me.
Perhaps if more chimneys were clear, you'd see it in more atomizers.

I wouldn't worry about it.
