I read it on a message board that the lovely Caz posted, just a few posts in and there it was!
 
It's basically bottom filling it, then gently blowing through it while the tank is inverted = no more leaks!!! :)Y) :)Y) :)Y)

They insisted that the atty remain inverted.  I've done this each time, but never got anything out.
 
 
 
 
Don't dispair Darth, I'm certain if you work at it there will be something else you can fail at.

The first tank randomly leaks out the base, at the bottom.  The second tank has never leaked.  Just got around to rotating the first tank back in and there is no reason it should leak, the second one is great!  I'll probably try to find another one in the near future.  Just thought I'd update this with me trying to rotate the two. w:)w w:)w w:)w

Already did that Brother Darth!  All checks are good.  I think it's leaking at the bottom "press fit" area.  Just can't figure why it does sometimes and doesn't other times??? w:)w w:)w w:)w

The way the pressure builds up in some of these tanks when you close them up can cause some funky leak issues.

I never removed my top o-ring on the Prime... I just start the cap back on and flip it upside down to tighten the rest of the way... when done I keep it upside down and just open the liquid feed a little to release the pressure..... no leaks.

This is a top fill tank, but filling from the bottom leaves like zero pressure.  I even test the airflow up-side-down.  This one tank passes all of the tests and inspections.  I worked almost 20 years in Industrial Aerospace Inspection, using x-ray, ultrasonics, magnetic particle, and florescent penetrant to identify defects.  My personal record was viaually spotting a crace that was 0.007 of an inch.  This damn tank has no defects that I can find, it has to be inside that base, at the bottom.  No trace of leak on the sides, always on the bottom. x} x} x}

Is the 510 screw adjustable. Try giving that a little tightening. Could do the trick. Don't over tighten though, they easily break.

Just from looking at a few googled pictures, it seems like the 510 screw is two parts. Remove the outer screw and tighten the inner screw. Then screw back in the outer screw. Don't over do the other screw, they are small and fragile.

I've gotta find my computer toolbox.  Not sure where it is since the apartment is in shambles from us getting ready to move into the RV, then me getting real sick, and skipping the whole RV thing.  There are boxes everywhere.  Needle in a haystack time.

I have finally given up on the Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA.  I have 3 of them.  The newest one I opened, built it, filled, vaped, and refilled and vaped it until I had to rebuild on it.  Once rebuilt, other than welding, it just won't stop leaking.  All 3 of them leak, exact same way, at the bottom, from the press-fit seam, and always after a rebuild.  Vandy Vape will rot in hell on a  festering pile of goat shit before they get another cent from me.

99% of leaking in an RTA is usually because of wicking. Here's a few question Rik and maybe we can fix the issue.
1) Are you filling up(but not stuffing) the wicking channels. Unless there is a major fault, the juice is somehow getting past your cotton and getting into the airflow. If your using a small diameter coil, there will be less cotton to fill the juice channels.
2) Is the cotton hanging over or really close to the airflow under the coil. This is an issue with my Ammit 25. I have to make sure the cotton is nowhere near the airflow or it will leak.
3) Is the 510 on the bottom tight??. Try tightening the 510 but don't go crazy, some of these screws can break, then your fucked.
