If you’re a Juul user (or if you’re simply reading this to scope your friend), chances are you’ve heard about the recent Juul leak issues. The vaping device and e-liquid company, which has an estimated valuation of $16 billion, experienced some pretty serious production problems in October 2018. The New York Times reported that thousands of Juul devices began exploding and overheating due to a manufacturing error. The issue stemmed from the lithium-ion battery in each device and how it was packaged. Thankfully, there are several ways to repair a Jul if you experience any issues with your vape device or e-juice pods. Read on Why Is My Juul Pod Leaking? step-by-step instructions on how to repair your broken Juul.
Why Is My Juul Pod Leaking?
Leaking is part of pod life. The juice inside them can only stay fresh for about one year, maybe a little less. It’s not really the juice that’s spoiling, but the flavor itself. It’s important to know that flavor will change over time, and liquid will start to form at the bottom of the devices due to the juice reacting with materials inside the pods. This is impacted by storage conditions (humidity and temperature), so try to store your pods in a cool, dry place.
What’s Causing Juul Pod Leaks?
1. Juul Battery Life Problem
Users report that occasionally, their Juul device will indicate that it has almost no charge left when it actually has a substantial amount left. The battery life problem on the Juul is most likely the result of the device not being fully charged when you first use it. If your Juul is fully charged and you’re still experiencing this problem, there could be something wrong with the device. If this is the case, you should contact Juul customer service. If you have a warranty, they will likely send you a new device.
2. Juul Device Malfunction
As we said in the previous section, if your Juul device malfunctions, there could be a problem with your battery. If this is the case, you should contact Juul’s customer service. They will likely send you a new device. If the battery is working correctly, but the device won’t turn on, this could be a sign that it has been waterlogged, which can happen when the device is dropped in water. If this happens, you can try to dry the device out in a bowl of rice or with a paper towel, but it might not be possible to save the device. If the device is malfunctioning or waterlogged, you can try charging it first and then pressing the device’s two buttons at the same time.
3. Juul Pod Too Hot
If your Juul pod is too hot, the device might be overheating and shutting itself off. If this happens, you can let the device rest for a few minutes and try using it again. If this happens on a frequent basis, you can try to avoid using the device in extreme heat. If the temperature is normal but the pod is still too hot, the device might not be fully sealing the pod, which can cause it to overheat. If this is the cause, you should try opening the pod with a pin and resealing it before using it again. If the pod is too hot but the device isn’t shutting itself off, there could be a problem with the battery. If this is the case, you should contact Juul’s customer service.
How To Fix Juul Pod Leaking?
Change The Coil
It’s possible that a small tear in the coil is causing your Juul pod to leak. However, if you’ve just bought the Juul and it’s leaking from the get-go, this is probably not the problem. The juice will only get into the pod if the coil is not sealed. If you have a tear in the coil, it will continue to leak. If you have a Juul and the pods have been out of the factory for a while, it’s possible that the seal may not be perfect. A small tear in the coil seal may even be causing the Juul pod to taste funny. If you’re experiencing any of this, it’s a good idea to replace the coil to make sure you get the best flavor possible.
Check Your Juul Pod Seal
If you’ve replaced the coil and the problem still exists, then you might have a faulty seal. It’s possible that a faulty seal is causing your Juul pod to leak. This is something you can easily check. What you’ll need to do is remove the pod from the Juul and check the seal inside. The seal should be completely enclosed and flush with the rest of the pod. If there are any gaps, then you’ll need to take the pod apart, put some more glue on the seal, and then reassemble it. If the seal is completely closed, then the problem may lie elsewhere. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for the seal on the pod to be faulty from the get-go. If this is the case, then you’ll need to buy new pods and hope that the seal is better engineered this time. Alternatively, you might want to look into getting a new Juul.
You Have Too Much Juice
Juul pods only hold a certain amount of juice and will eventually overflow if you overfill them. This might cause your Juul pod to leak, but it’s not the only reason this might happen. If your Juul pod is leaking, and you have no idea why then it’s possible that you have too much juice in the pod. When you overfill your Juul pod, the excess juice will leak out. If you don’t notice it, then it will get into the Juul battery and cause the whole thing to short out. When you short out the Juul battery, your pod will leak like a sieve. If you’re filling your Juul pods with too much juice, it’s simple to fix. Just take the pod out of the Juul, suck out the excess juice, and then put it back in. If you don’t notice the leak right away, then the excess juice will get into the Juul battery and short it out.
Your Battery Is Old Or Defective
Batteries have a shelf life, and if you have a Juul that’s a year or two old, it’s possible that the battery has gone bad. If you have a defective battery, it may be causing your Juul pod to leak. If you have a leaking Juul pod, then try cleaning the battery and the pod. If this doesn’t work, try using a new battery. If the problem still exists, then it may be time to toss your Juul and get a new e-cig. If you have a faulty or worn-out battery, you’ll need to replace it. If you have a two-piece Juul, you can easily replace the battery. If you’re using a one-piece Juul, you’ll need to contact Juul support.
How To Prevent Juul Pod Leaking?
- Make sure you are using the right charger with your Juul. The charger that came with your device should be able to charge it fully in about an hour and a half. If you aren’t using this charger, you may need to buy one to get the most out of your Juul.
- Battery life issues can occur when using a Juul, especially after the device has been improperly stored or charged.
- A battery that is low on charge will not be able to generate enough power to heat the liquid inside the Juul pod, and this can result in a decrease in vapor production. This is why it’s important to always store your Juul with a full charge.
- If you have a habit of charging your Juul on and off throughout the day, try plugging it in at night so that it charges fully throughout the night.
- If your device is having trouble holding a charge, try cleaning out the vents on the side of the device.
- It’s also worth noting that charging through USB does not yield as good results as using an external charger.
Whether your Juul device is leaking e-juice or you are experiencing an overheating or exploding issue, there are a few ways to repair the device. You’ll first want to clean your Juul device to check for any e-juice leaks. If your device is clean and still experiencing issues, you’ll want to test your e-juice pods and replace any that are expired. You’ll also want to thoroughly clean your Juul device and its charger to rule out any damage or issues with the device.
