This is a common question and concern among people that are vaping. There are a couple of reasons for this and all are the result of different conditions. For starters, let’s take a look at the cartridge you are using. Regardless of whether you are using a clearomizer or advanced tank system, they have a natural lifespan. I prefer to use 5 -7 days as a benchmark for most e-Liquid delivery systems. As the cartridge or replaceable coil / cartomizer breaks down there are symptoms that you will experience and one of those is leaking.
The heating coil within your cartridge will eventually burn a hole into the tube that the vapor travels through. This will create a gurgling or spitting sensation that will result in e-Liquid being pulled up into your mouth as well as leakage into your battery. If your cartridge has reached the end of its life, the obvious answer is that it needs to be replaced.
There is another condition that can have the same symptoms and is most often overlooked. Your battery’s power has a lot to do with vaping quality. When your battery power is low you are more likely to draw harder to get the vape that you want. This can create what I call “The Straw Effect” where you are essentially pulling the liquid up through the cartridge and into your mouth.
There are no cartridges, clearomizers or tanks that are immune to this effect. The answer is to change your carto as soon as you feel that it is no longer delivering a satisfying vape and temper your draw when your battery life may be on the low end. If you are a heavy vaper and feel that you may be puffing on it constantly, you may want to consider getting a variable voltage battery so that you can increase the hit you get when vaping.
