A cartomizer is a little thing like a cigarette filter, in size and shape, and it is a cartridge and atomizer; it is 'disposable'; it contains the heating coil. It contains a big wad of wicking material usually called filler.I see them all of the time in pictures of people's setups and truthfully, being new, I have absolutely no idea what they are. Since the beginning, the only thing I've used are Protanks, Aerotanks and Protank Minis and they've worked...OK I suppose. Mainly the Protanks are the only ones to give me issues. Anyways, from my understanding there were only a couple other type of systems like RBA's (rebuildables with a tank system) and RDA's (rebuildable dripping atomizers) and then disposable dripping atomizers that you use to try flavors.
What exactly is a carto tank and are they nice/easy to use? Do you have to rebuild with them? I see them all over the place in the Provari section, and since I've just bought one, I'd like to know why they're so commonly used and how beneficial they are. Also, if they're really good, which should I get and why?
The original regular cartomizers screw directly onto a battery, and when on a small automatic battery they look like cigalikes.
With carto tanks, what is used are punched cartomizers, - they have a hole or 2 on them, and they go inside a tank, and the liquid in the tank can seep in through the holes.
The cartridge itself wouldn't hold very much eliquid, so instead of tossing an otherwise good carto which is empty of liquid, you can use punched cartos in a tank and vape alot more liquid before the carto really needs changing.
The Sophia is a carto shaped rebuildable atomizer.
A carto tank is essentially a bcc clearomiser which uses standard type cartos as the atomizer.
The v-nano is a cigalike type tank with atomizer with removeable mouthpiece for refilling, which uses filler like a carto; its like a disposable micro cartotank system in construction.
