Avoiding E-Liquid Mishaps

Picking up a vaporizer and getting e-liquid all over your hands is a very unpleasant experience for anyone.

One way to avoid leakage is to always have the device standing upright. Do not lay the vaporizer on its side when not in use and try to avoid having it on its side or upside down in pockets, purses, or backpacks. Another mistake that people tend to make is overfilling the tank with e-liquid or over-saturating the wick in the atomizer. If the wick in the atomizer is too damp, it could have the tendency to shoot liquid out of the tip and into the user’s mouth when heated the same way olive oil in a hot frying pan would do.

The best way to avoid these issues is to use less liquid and bring on more e-juice only when needed later on. Another common factor of leakage is that the tank, atomizer, or other parts of the device aren’t on tight enough. Always make sure that everything is screwed on and secured snugly to avoid leakage. Another common issue can also be an e-liquid leak if the O-ring on a tank is damaged or broken, causing the airtight seal around the tank to fail. O-rings are easy to replace and can be found either online or at a local vape shop. Instructional videos can be found on the internet when it comes to locating and replacing O-rings.


There are times when vaporizer leakage occurs is because of poor manufacturing of the product. Not all devices and there parts are made the same way, so if you can’t identify the cause of leaking, it’d be wise to do a product review online and see if there are similar complaints from other customers. If the manufacturer has too many complaints, then it might be time to consider looking for a different device or part produced by a better company.


Overall, research and knowledge are the keys to avoiding or dealing with e-liquid mishaps.
