My atomizer is leaking a bit, how come?

If you're getting significant leakage, there are 3 reason this might be occuring:

  • Atomizer might be overloaded with too much material
  • The material is being consumed too slowly
  • The material is too runny. 

Too Much Material

Use less material than before, if there's too much splashing on the side of the walls, or dripping down, the material is bubbling up (like a hot pot of water) and either overflowing or being sucked up  when inhaling too hard. SOURCEvapes products are designed with the best airflow in the vape pens, so there is no need to inhale hard like other products.

SOURCE nail atomizers will removable buckets, when overfilled, will sometimes have the material overflow out of the bucket, and into the atomizer. We recommend using less material. 

Consumed Too Slowly

If you're not finishing all of your material in your coiled atomizers, when it's warm and runny, it will leak a bit through the coils.

To prevent this, we recommend taking smooth draws without the battery turned on after use for about 15 seconds. This will lower the temperature of the chamber, and will cool the concentrate inside, solidify it and make it less liquid, which will then prevent leaking. 

Coiled and ceramic donut atomizers have a few small holes at the bottom of the atomizer cups where the coil power the atomizer connects to the battery. Thicker materials will have minimal leakage, while more runny and watery materials will leak more. 

Why don't we "seal" those small holes the coils go through? Because of our commitment to using the healthiest materials, most "sealed/leak-proof" coiled atomizers use glue or other similar materials we do not and will never approve to use in our products. 

For no leaking with left over material, we recommend using any of the one-piece coil-less atomizers:

  • 4 Series
    • SOURCE terra 2
    • SOURCE nail Titanium
    • SOURCE nail Ceramic
    • SOURCE nail Quartz

Material Too Runny

If you're material is very runny and more like a liquid, we recommend using one of these atomizers:

  • 4 Series
    • Black Ceramic Double Coil (Rods Absorb Material)
    • SOURCE terra 2
    • SOURCE nail Titanium
    • SOURCE nail Ceramic
    • SOURCE nail Quartz
