    Sometimes the heat can make the juice a bit thinner and so it can lead to more leaking
    Most of my devices dont leak though but i have had some that leak more when its hot

    Yup, heat effects a liquids viscosity.... easiest example is if you diy and put your fresh mix in a hot bath, much easier to shake afterwards because the liquids more "runny"

    Thinner liquid finds gaps and gets through them a lot easier and quicker

    Back in the day if you left your protanks and clearos in the car and took a puff off it you would suck up a mouth full of juice. It gurgled a lot, the newer rtas don't do it at all

    It's not only the juice getting thinner, but the air inside the tank heats up and cause a little extra pressure and expand, forcing the already thin liquid out. It's unfortunately one of those things.

    Yeah, it’s the thinner liquid and higher pressure inside the tank. I often leave my tanks in the car n to avoid leaks I close airflow when I leave it and when I return, I open the fill Cap first to release pressure, close it and open airflow. Had no leaks so far.
