    I really like being able to make my own e-cig juice with concentrates. It's convenient, discreet, etc. I'm on my second device, however and the new one is leaking, too. The first one was a small box type deal and it leaked like a sive. This one is an Endura T20 and it leaks if I lay it on it's side.

    I hate the leaking, and the guy at the vape store said they all leak. I can't buy that! I want something that doesn't leak- I don't care if it is super adjustable or anything, just something the doesn't leak!

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Well, I guess there may not be one that doesn’t leak, lol!

    I use a Endura T18 and Endura t18ep for e-juice but have fallen back into combusting pyros.
    Sometimes some condensed liquid escapes the mouthpiece but I never had liquid escaping from the glass-chamber.
    Well, one time, but that was silly me wanting to know what happens if you blow in it :D

    I like the tight draw on the enduras.
    Did you install the coil correct ?
    where does it leak from ?

    It leaks from where the top part screws into the bottom. And only if I lay it down. I didn't install anything, I just used it right out of the box.

    maybe the coil (the cylinder with the cotton and the wires inside) is faulty or not installed correctly.
    Do you have a spare coil?
    they can be bought cheap at fasttech.

    Vape the atomizer (glass chamber) empty.
    twist top part off.
    turn it over
    screw the atomizer off.
    insert a new one.
    reassemble

    Happened to be thumbing through High Times and saw the Rubi. I researched it and I guess it DOESN'T LEAK. Should be arriving any time today.
    I'm prepared!

    I would say out of my vape tanks the Kay..fun Prime is like the best. The original costs some bucks but the clone (which I have ☺️) is excellent

    I have not had my Rubi leak but in all honesty it sucks with what you are making for it. I actually have the same mix and just don't get great hits out of it. My 1st tank made gurgling noises every hit , my second tank I made just never put out good vapor. I think the carts are not designed for our thc ejuice as i have read around the web and many had the same issue. I'm wishing you luck though , maybe they re-did the tanks , mine are from when it 1st came out. Please post some results .

    So, it got here this morning. I charged it for an hour, primed the tank, and gave it a shot!

    I am happy to report (granted, after only 5 hits) that this thing is ripping for me! Seriously nice clouds if I pull harder and softer vape-type clouds with a short draw. It's cool as shit, too. No gurgle sound, and no leaks- so far ;) I just hope I don't loose that tiny silicone plug, lol.

    I'm heading to Block Island for a couple of days of "work" tomorrow, so it will be a good test for it.

    Nice I am glad you got it and it is working for you. What Ratio of mix/concentrate did you end up using?. I am going to give mine another shot today with concentrate. I have 2 tanks left that are new. I ended up filling one with regular old Eliquid and got the gurgles again. Hoping it is just the cart so well see when I try some potent juice.

    I did the standard 1 gram to 2 mils. I really am digging it. And I can get huge lung busters if I hit it a certain way.

    I use Holy Terp Pure mix but what I am going to try is extracting the juice out of a high quality pre-filled cart and putting it in the Rubi later tonight as I like the form factor better . Hopefully it works out .

    It’s working amazing , I transferred from a pre made cart to the rubi’s tank. Hits really hard , almost double the output of any of my regular pens and the taste is just amazing . It definitely uses material quicker but I am really happy I gave it a 2nd chance . My new favorite pen , I guess I got a few tanks that just didn’t meet quality control but I am glad I found one that works nice .

    Good I've been using straight distillate in mine but I heat up the glass syringe with a lighter so it's very very thin and runny so its easier to load and also when the oil is hot it soaks into the cotton much better
