I'm sure its the wicking, not the tank. Keep trying!

It could be the wicking, but if it leaks readily with the JFC closed, it sounds like an o-ring issue. Either one is damaged or one is missing.

first batch of the original was flawed , they had to replace the deck because of leaking issue, i guess sxk didn’t clone the updated deck.

put more cotton and see if this can help.

thanks Fahad999.
the only way to make the tank full of juice, i have to rewick with fresh dry cotton without any juice on it.
Allow the JFC open, fill it with juice as quickly as possible and close the top cap.
It vapes perfectly, the flavour are superb with MTL setup.
then repeat the process without hassle of leaking.

i dont think so is the orings the culprit.
my guess is is the metal intact inbetween the juice flow control, it is not tight/seal enough.

with the tank empty, and fully assembled, position your fingers over the air inlets, and blow firmly through the drip tip. If you hear audible air hiss, it's usually a missing seal. Otherwise, it's wicking...it's earlier iteration had a certain "knack" to the wicking, and this could be sinilar.

Regardless, if you don't have the earlier version, don't miss out - one of the very best in my collection, easily beating most of the better-known "heavyweights".

Todd indicates this flaw in his review here:https://youtu.be/cuITWpy1EMA. Apparently the manufacturer sent the buyers an updated deck.
It might help if the FT team relay this information to SXK or other manufacturers (any chance Annie Pan?!). I’m sure SXK won’t send us free decks. But it might help with release and sale of updated decks or models.
Honestly it looks and functions well enough for me to buy an updated deck or RTA.

@valeriezxy, we are sorry to hear about the leaking issue of the RTA you received. To better know the problem, we have contacted you by creating a ticket. Please check the ticket when you are convenient. Thank you.

@FrankieS, SXK manufacturer says that the RTA they offered is with the updated deck. We have asked them to pay more attention to the leaking issue. If any other customers have the same leaking issue of the RTA, please feel free to contact us. We will reflect it to the manufacturer and offer the corresponding warranty.

Learn something new every day. Stupid simple, yet I had no motivation to think and\or attempt it. Grassy ass for that idea.

Knock knock, let the devil in. Malevolent as I've ever been, head is spinnin'. This medicine's screamin', "L-l-l-let us in!"
