Yes I have, there is a tiny gap between the deck pin and the insulator inside the 510.
Condensation flows out there :(
I talked about it on this THREAD




how to solve it please?

Take the deck out and push the insulator up.


djvillan thanks, but unfortunately, that method doesn't work for me.
Because the inside diameter of that insulator is too wide for the base pin and therefore there is a gap where condensation escapes... and it's no use (at least for me) to push the insulator up :(

Fasttech, please give us the shipping method 'Spain Express - Priority Line' https://www.fasttech.com/forums/order-support/t/2394666/we-pay-for-delivery-now?2394932

Yep, I definitely wouldn't trust this on any of my favourite mods. Shame, as it functions pretty well.

I haven't tried it because my black and ss Exo rta's don't having any leaking problems.

Helder_Santos have you tried adding a small o-ring to the deck post to push down against the insulator in the base?

Take something pointy and small like some fine-point tweezers, a juice bottle blunt needle, or similar and push from the bottom on one of the sides of the insulator up. It may take a bit of force (don't stab your hand) and will suddenly push up/ out. You could grab it from the top with something, but be careful not to break it.

I wish they'd made it a little more tight to sit flush with the deck pin.

Hey guys, could anyone perhaps give a more detail information on how to fix it? I've never fixed anything related to that, and I am fairly new to RTA's. All i pretty much know is how to build.

I have this issue, and it's the only issue that's preventing my exo from being perfect. I've lived with it for like a month now because I don't really know what to do and I hopped more noob friendly info would pop up. I have no idea honestly on what to do, so if anyone could tell me how to solve it with a bit more details and a picture of the insulator, I'd really appreciate it. It's getting more annoying day by day because it either shorts or keeps giving me now atomizer notifications and it's happening more and more often.


Thanks.

I have an Exo and really like it. But I have no leaking at all if it is wicked correctly. I realize a center pin leak is not the same as a leak from poor wicking and no matter how well you wick if you have an issue with the center pin it won't stop that situation. Sounds like you have it figured out pretty damn well on how to stop it.

One other suggestion is to get an Aromamizer Supreme V2. A little better on the flavor. Easier to wick and fill. NO leaking. Just a better built atty in general.

Although I still use my Exo because it's a great flavor machine too!
