‘My T18 is leaking’ is an issue we have heard raised a fair amount. When we check the pen for damage or malfunction we usually notice some user errors, including the following:
If you are someone who is covered in vape juice every time you take a vape, then try troubleshooting your leaking T18 with the following.
The T18 is flashing green because it is trying to tell you something. It is a simple pen without a screen so it is trying to communicate through this green flashing light.
Quite annoying actually. However, we have done some detective work and boil the flashing down to three reasons:
The Endura T18ii has a built in battery of 1300mAh. This isn't the biggest, but it isn't bad for a pocket sized, low powered pen.
It should have no problem seeing you through a day. However, if you are noticing it starts to flash red much sooner than that then it might be down to how much you are vaping or that the battery is on its way out.
No one likes the taste or smell of a burnt coil. If your coil has been installed a few weeks then the burnt taste might indicate that it is time to swap it out for a new one. The issues come when you have just installed the coil and it is already burnt.
Thankfully, there are a few ways to avoid this happening.
1. Let the wick saturate
Your coil is made of cotton and metal. The cotton needs to get soaked in the eliquid before you take a puff. If you are too keen and inhale the vapor before the coil has had a chance to absorb the juice then you are in line for a ‘dry hit’.
A dry hit instantly ruins a coil and there is no going back from it. No amount of washing or soaking will remove that burnt taste.
2.Use the correct PG:VG ratio
Make sure you are using a 50:50 e liquid, or even a 40:60PG such as Vampire Vape which is thinner. The thinner e liquid will absorb into the coil quickly, helping to avoid the dreaded dry hits.
3. Pause between puffs
I know, you have a 10 minute vape break and want to get as many puffs in as possible before you are called back on shift. However, when you don’t take short pauses between puffs you put yourself at risk of a dry hit.
If you are struggling to meet your nicotine cravings in a short space of time then try a nic salts e-liquid. These are thin and suitable for low powered pens such as the T18ii.
