Cleito leaking

Hello all! New to vaping and to the forum. I bought a Cleito about 2 weeks ago and I'm using the 0.4 ohm coil and I am loving it! Seriously thinking of buying a 2nd,as I like to change flavors throughout the day. Only thing is, everytime I refill or change flavors, it leaks slowly through the air intakes.. I've re-seated the coil several times and have even replaced it, thinking maybe I screwed up the threading. I have it on a Eleaf iStick TC100w mod Box, running at 44.3 watts.. Any suggestions

  • If the coil is seated correctly and is tight, the cause may be overfilling the tank. Do not fill to the very edge, leave about 1/4" airspace at the top. make sure that the Airflow is shut when filling and adjust it after the top is screwed back on, this may help.
  • Hope all works out well for you!
  • Always check your scratch off for authentication! Fakes and clones look the same but the machining can be iffy on some and the coils are just plain trash on the fakes. :-B
  • After 3 years of vaping, I gave it up out of frustration with leaking tanks. I'm not even sure how many tanks I have bought trying to find one that doesn't leak at least a dozen or more different manufacturers and configurations. It seemed like I was wiping up as juice as I was vaping. I soon found myself right back on my Camel Filters habit and the hacking cough that goes along with smoking a pack per day. Every tank I bought had one thing in common, BOTTOM AIR FLOW. I'm a truck driver and that means elevation changes. It doesn't matter what you do, differences in atmospheric pressure WILL force juice out of any bottom air flow tank, it's a bad design for anyone who travels. I have 4 Cleito EXO tanks as well as an Aspire Revvo tank, none of which has leaked when sitting upright. I've had leakage out of the REVVO tank but, it had tipped over and I didn't notice it until I had gone over 7,000 ft. in elevation. I hate to sound like a commercial for Aspire but, they got me off the cigarettes. Again.
  • This sounds right. I do fill it to the top, and I never pay attention to the Airflow. I reseated my coil earlier and jus let some juice out of the tank, closed the Airflow and put the top on. I think this did the trick! I will report back tommorow.. Thanks charlzrocks
  • Well, it's a fail.. It did stop for a bit last night, I was vaping and happy.. Refilled this morning, per your instructions @charlzrocks, was going great.. Reached in my pocket and got a handful of juice.. Got the coil screwed in tighter than I ever have, scared to go any tighter.. I really love this setup..flavor is on point.
  • I always take a few vapes just after refilling, this helps too.
  • If you leave it lying on its side, it's more likely to leak, due to just physics, and capillary action. try to keep it upright as much as poss.
  • Well, it's still leaking.. I'm gonna just call it a bad seal or something.. I ordered it online and I don't have the invoice for it. Guess I'll just keep it for a spare, back to my old Kangertech..Sure hate to give it up, the flavor, MAN THE FLAVOR
  • I guess that's what it has got to be, a fake. This thing is eating coils also. I haven't had it a month, already been through 2..Get that burnt taste, and raw throat sensation after about a week or so of heavy use. Now, if I can just find the packaging... @charlzrocks
  • @Badwayz001 I only get a week or so from the coils too. It really depends on your juice. Sweet juices kill 'em off quick (Elements).
  • Days, weeks, months ... we are talking about coil longevity, so please mention milliliters (or whatever liquid measure).
  • I just got this tank and all two days has been nightmare of leaking through vent holes.. My vape shop recommended me so I've got it but this is insider joke but if you sell claito at least you can sell two bottles of juices with in few days is the maricious Vape shop's selling point for the money so watch out.
  • First, you close the vent holes.
    Bring your vape mod upside down . doing so depresurize inner chamber and outer atomizer for mmmm...about 10 sec .

    bring back your vape mod to upright position. " Very" Slowly open top mouth lid piece.

    Recharge the your juice into between the glass and atomizer. Leave 4mm or so from the brim .
    Close the top mouth lid piece screw in very slowly and not too tight .

    Bring your vape mod upside down again . doing so depresurize inner chamber and outer atomizer for mmmm...about 10 sec .

    Bring back to upright position then open vent .

    Very strongly suck the top mouth piece to take out excess juice out of the atomizer .

    Then fire it up for second and hear the sound of atomizer. If its not smooth then you still have too much juice within a atomoizer so suck the juice then blow it out smoke through vent holes.

    After all that procedures you should have no leaking Aspire Cleito in your hand waiting to be Vaped by you ....
  • It is about time ecig manufactures start admitting when the overpriced stuff has flaws instead of playing that show me your scratch off bs! The holes in coil are too big and the coil overloads its as sinple as that and the pressure of cap pushes juice out.
  • This is 3rd brand of tank that I tried thats been leaking mess! It’s running smokers rite back to cigarettes. That and cost of juice and etc. I assure you they could afford to remedy this as the stuff is made in china and marked up 1000% Its the coil design causing Cleito to leak and they could easily fix issue! Here is ya scratch off Aspire always tries to chalk it up to fakes!

  • To those frustrated with leaking tanks the only one Ive ever seen that truly dont leak is Kanger subtank. It dont vape as bigga clouds but thats the deal in order to feed this massive clouds the designs have to allow too much juice flow and thus you will have leakage. The cotton feed system is a proven joke and its time they move on and design a feed system that is more logical. WHen you consider the billions $ industry this is you should not have to keep calling it a loss when these novelty vapes arr a rip off! Tired of seeing consumers treated as if idiots To get outta refunding or resolving bad designs! It will persist til consumers have said enuff and demand these companies to stand behind product
  • To all Cleito users that (still) have a leaking issue after above suggested procedures, buy a Cleito EXO :D
