I have no idea what he’s saying or what is actually accomplished by doing this, but I figure it’s worth a shot. I’ve had a Zeus X since they were first released and no matter how much cotton I manage to cram into the build, it always ends up flooding eventually. As long as the atty is being used, it works great. However if I let it sit for a couple hours or overnight while I sleep, it’s always flooded when I go to use it again. I’ve replaced every seal in it and nothing changes.

Might as well give this a shot. Otherwise it’ll just continue taking a spot on my vape shelf.
Teenage angst has paid off well. Now I'm bored and old.

Funnily enough, mine are the opposite.

I wick them just enough that it slightly overlaps that ring so when i push the wick into its spot its not packed in but can almost pop out until its juiced. Then it sits there perfectly. If I overpack it, I eventually receive dry hits.

The downside to the way I do it, is that unlike any other atomizer i own, it really does need to sit for 15 mins, I suppose while the wick expands.
If I dont let it sit, then they will gurgle and I will end up with some juice in my mouth.

Let it sit for a short time and I never have a problem with it. Mine often sit for 8-16 hours and never flood, other than the very beginning if I dont let it sit for a while first.

My first one, bought here, was leaking as crazy, no matter how the build/wick was. Hell didn't even need to build, it was obvious just from looking at it that it would leak.
I followed those steps from another website, and it actually fixed the problem. But I had to do it about once every week. Bought a 2nd one here again, and on this one absolutely no problem.
So yeah 1 batch was totally flawed, and if they were honest they would have assume it and payback or send another one to the people having a faulty one. But it's such a good RTA that I bought another one...

I will take a closer peek at each one next time I coil/wick.
Aside from it needing to sit for 15 min first, it hasnt been a problem.

But if that will stop even that 15 min wait from being necessary, its worth a shot.

You dont have the leaking problem with either of yours, do you Richy??
If not, did you get them both here...


*Indeed, I leave them on top of the SX Mini's, sometimes for a day as i have a couple and the bottoms are always dry when I unscrew them off of a mod.
