Seal a leaking E-Cig reservoir window? Answered

Hi guys,

I have a 7's Electronic Cigarette with a reservoir window to check how much juice you have left. I absolutely love it however I've noticed over time that they start leaking from the window as if they weren't sealed very well. What I would like to do is seal up any holes in mine because the replacements are $15 and it can add up. The outer casing feels like aluminum, and the window is just some type of plastic. Ideally I'd like to still be able to see through the window. Any suggestions? Here's a link to the product: http://www.my7s.com/hybrid-vision-one-kit.html


I have had this problem a few times before, there are 3 main seals in an e-cigarette, one of them is attached to the drip tip (mouth piece) and screws in to the plastic unit. Another is located on the bottom of the actual coil that screws on to the main tank unit (this is often the first seal to go) and the third connects the outer casing to the screw.

I have often found it is the coil seal that goes first and causes leakages. Look in to just buying replacement coils, they are much cheaper!

There is a new article about Nicotine in the latest Discover magazine. The research is showing that nicotine is not nearly as addictive as used to be thought. Its the other stuff in the smoke that is. Further it appears that Nicotine may be very valuable in treating Parkinson's and a number of other diseases. The drug by itself may have some very valuable traits. Its the smoking as the delivery mechanism that is the big problem in terms of health.

Just thought you might find it interesting. Its new research that could change the whole thinking about the drug.

Like most things for Native Americans tobacco had multiple uses. Not only did they smoke and chew it but they also used it to cover wounds. There where taking advantage of the medicinal propertiec of the nicotine.

I Would use RTV = silicone bath tub caulk and let it cure 48hrs in a moist room.

E-cigs are not smoking. They give you water vapor. Depending on the brand it can be just flavored vapor or you can get it with nicotine in it.

Line the edge of the window with Surgu.
