Ways to Avoid Having a Leaky Pod-Based Vape Session

Few things are more frustrating to a vaper than having a leaking pod cartridge while trying to enjoy a pleasurable vaping experience. There are several reasons why your pod may be leaking juice. 

A leaky cartridge can result in all kinds of annoyances. For one thing, a pod that leaks can cause your mouth to fill with vape juice whenever you try to take a hit. Plus, the juice can end up leaking all over your battery connections, causing your device to stop working. And, needless to say, leaking juice means wasted money. 

Fortunately, it is fairly easy to avoid this common issue and here’s how:

Don't Squeeze the Pod Cartridge

This one sounds like a no-brainer, but we've all been guilty of squeezing our pod cartridge from time to time. Due to the nature of this type of device, air bubbles can accumulate in the pod, causing the hits to become weak. Many of us attempt to remedy this situation by giving the pod cartridge a gentle squeeze.

The problem with squeezing your pod cartridge is that it can lead to a leak. If you want to get rid of air bubbles, try lightly flicking your pod cartridge instead.

Don't Overfill the Pod Cartridge

If you use a pod mod that has a refillable pod cartridge, it's very important that you don't fill the pod with more e-liquid than it's designed to hold at one time. Overfilling your pod cartridge will cause excess juice to leak.

It's always a good idea to fill your pod cartridge in a bright area so that you can see how much you're pouring into the well. In fact, some pod cartridges have fill lines that take the guesswork out of the filling process.

Replace Your Pod Cartridges Regularly

Pod cartridges have built-in coils that heat the e-liquid, allowing it to become tasty, thick vapor. The problem is that these coils are not meant to last forever. If your juice is leaking, it might be because it's time to change your pod cartridge. A coil that's on its way out will likely cause your e-liquid to taste burnt. If this is the case, you can simply purchase a replacement pod cartridge from the manufacturer.

Don't Expose Your Pod System to High Heat

Some vapers find that exposing their pod system to high heat causes a leak. If it's a particularly hot day, think twice before keeping your device in your pocket all day. Too much heat can thin out the e-liquid, causing it to flow from the mouthpiece. This can result in e-liquid getting into your mouth when you try to pull on your device.

Don't Over-Handle Your Pod Cartridge

Over-handling your pod cartridge can definitely cause it to leak e-liquid. If you're constantly taking your pod cartridge out of your device and putting it back in throughout the day, you can cause the mechanisms to become loose.
