Leaking Kanger T3
It's defiantly not condensation I'm getting, when it gargles, it also starts to leak around the fitting into the battery.
When vaping I tend to double draw where I blow a bit back out through the mouth piece and you get smoke out of the air holes then suck again.
I thought by blowing back down The mouthpiece on these is some how blowing the juice off the wick down the bottom to build up and gargle but I made sure I didn't vape this way after the first failure. I just don't know but I think I will have to get another as hope mine was faulty somehow because everyone is raving about how good they are.

RE: Leaking Kanger T3
I would guess the extra piece of wick is to keep more liquid around and available to the coil at any one time.

I've been using the same one for over a week now; no gurgling.
I use approx 20% VG.

After mine started gurgling, it steadily got worse until it would not draw. I took off the tank and realised that the leaked juice had filled up the space between the tank and the battery and was up to the air holes on the Kanger!

RE: Leaking Kanger T3
are the 2 flavour wicks still there as i read on another froum about these someone took 1 out and said it was better so i took one out of mine to try and it flooded and gurgled so i put it back and its on day 5 now and great also dont tighten them down to much as it crushes the seal and they will also leak you have also got the seal on the top of the tube the right way as that can cause them to flood and leak hope this helps heres some good info on the T3

This was using the T3 in its original form from new. I have now put in a new T3 coil and it seems fine but I will not know for sure until my juice level gets lower.
I am just about to recoil the original T3 unit that leaked, following the great vid that Todd produced.
Then I will have to wait another few days for the level on that to drop, I probably only vape about 2 mls. per day and I have three flavours on the goSmiling

RE: Leaking Kanger T3
right with you now i found that i can get down to 0.4 ml on mine just about leavel with the top seal before it starts to gurgle and if you leave them lying down over night they will gurgle a bit at first so i stand mine up at night i think but might be wrong that when the leavel drops too far air goes in and then they gurgle still the best clearo so far

RE: Leaking Kanger T3
HI again

So after my first one was rebuilt i found the same gurgling problem as soon as the liquid got down to the bottom of the measurement lines. Seriously saddened by this and hope that there is a simple mod to fix it as this was vaping sooo well. I put on my second new coil and after 2 tanks of liquid i started getting the same gurgling when the liquid got a bit low. I do suspect that it has something to do with losing pressure in the tank when the liquid level allows any air to get into it.

TOBY!!! excellent device mate i would love to hear what you have found and if you have found a solution, i did read on ECF that there is a second version coming if you know anything about that it would be great, but it would be even better if you know of an easy way to stop the gurgling, this is such a nice device and i was just about to buy a few boxes of replacement coils.

RE: Leaking Kanger T3
Sorry Fluba.. not sure I can be much help there...

I have never run my liquid that low in the tank... which makes me wonder if that is why I have not experienced gurgling... (?)

RE: Leaking Kanger T3
Hello guys, mine starts gurgle when the liquid lever is lower than 1ml and it leaks between the coil and the battery connector, now i refilled completely and it seems dry, but I really don't know when/if it will start leaking again..
